WILL NOT AID CONSUMERS Price of Farm Products to Producers Will Be Lower. SHOULD BEGIN ON LUXURIES Senator Snra 1.1 no or Coat More Than Meat, Tobacco More Than Flour and Amusements More Than Potntoes. WASHINGTON, July 11 Senator Mc 'Cumber "of North Dakota opened tho re publican assault on tho democratic tariff revision bill In the senate today, de fending tho farmers of tho country against the free listing or great reduc tion In tariff, rates on agricultural products, and charging tho democratic party with deliberately "kicking the American farmer Into tho gutter." "In this year, 1913," said Senator Mc Cumber, addr6sslns tho democrats, "you are about to commltt a greater crime against the American farmer than has oxer been perpetrated by any political party against any claaB of people during any period of recorded history." Tho tariff bill, Senator McCumber de clared, seemed to have been "conceived in animosity against every American in dustry that needed protection," with the American farmers aa "the special object of its choler and hate." "Is it because of his past political af filiation that you are heaping upon him tho vertecance for all your previous de feats? Or do you consider yourBelt to bo the Instrument through which Provi dence Is to work its punishment because in the last political campaign he forgot the faith of his fathers and went chasing after a strange, god, with cloven hoofs and branching antlers? If he Is, to be punished for his heresy, are you tho proper person to inflict the punishment? You are. tho beneficiary of the farmers' Infidelity to his "own party last fall." Ilypocrlar About licclproclty. It' was the democrats, Senator McCum ber declared,, wbo told the farmer that ho had been wronged by Mr. Taft be cause the' former president sought to '.trade off his protection for reciprocal tariff 'reductions by Canada" and it was thd 4erf!9'ilt"who tried to convince the - (armcr-that- the-republlcan -PetjMvaiinot. to be rusted ahd that they,, instead. hould-te trusted wtlh his Interests. The reciprocity proposition, the senator ar gued, had. one VJrtue. in that It pro posed to got something for surrendering nothing, while tho democrats proposed to trade away tho, farmers' interest In everything "for absolutely nothtng." Senator McCumber asserted that tht) democrats admitted the tariff bill would Injure the farmer, contending that he re ceived too much for . his products and must be compelled to sell them'cheaper. The senator submitted statistics seeking to .show that the tariff did riot affect the price of farm products to the consumer and. again addressing tho democrats, said: "You are reaching a point where your Income Is unable to keep pace with your extravagances, and you are asking the farmer to make good the deficit by reducing the price of his products. It never occurs to you that tho proper place to begin economy Is on the luxuries, tho unnecessarles of life. Luxuries Cost More Than Food. "You declare to him that the American people are paying1 11,600.000,000 a year for meat, and you say that Is too much. Ho answers, 'They are also paying $2,000,030. 000 a year for liquors, Cut your liquor bill In half and you will save enough to buy all your meat You declare they are paying Jt35.O0O.OOO' a year for flour. He replies.. 'They are paying JSOO.000.000 for tobacco. Cut your tobacco bill In half and your flour is free Tou declare they are paying J5.)00,0OO a year for potatoes. replies, 'They are paying $500,000,000 for "theaters and amusements. Cut your amusements ono-half and your potatoes are free.' You declare they are paying $300,000,000 a year for butter and eggs. Ho replies, "They are spending X,CO0,000 a year "for confectionery. "Ills replies are unanswerable." Prices Will Be Lower. The North Dakota, senator asserted that prices would be lower of ter4 -the tariff bill becomes law, but that It would be because of the inability of the public t pay higher prices and because of the general stagnation of business" brought Yfbout by the tariff bllU "Pass this bill and, unless this cutthroat policy which annihilated the republican party In WIS continues there will not be a democratic state In'the whole north," said the eerxtor."

These. are tho objects of tho chamber of com merce of (he United States now being formed, ns outlined by Harry A. Wheeler of Chicago, president of the organization. Mr. Wheeler, expounding his theme here tonight before the San Francisco chamber of commerce and other com mercial bodies, said frankly thut, aside from the natural evolution, another reason for the organization of a national body at this time, Is "the Indiscriminate nttacks mado upon business generally, Upon public .platform and In the dally and periodically press of the country." Prejudice HrIntr Extended. "The popular prejudice, which flrst2was aroused against the railroad, has ex tended Its line of attack to include the Industrial life of the nation and the pro fession of banking," he snld, ''Popular sentiment has It that all who have been successful In the accumulation of wealth, have become so by predatory means, and that rottenness underlies tho entire com murclal fabric of the nation. To be popular with the general public upon the platform has been to glvo voice to vio lent attacks upon these Interests. To popularize the periodical press statement having little foundation often have been made or an Isolated example of evil doipg was mode to bear upon an en tire Industry, "As an argument for the larger gov ernmental regulation of business, one of the candidates In the last presidential campaign repeatedly declared that the business Interests of the country were engaged In a chaotic struggle to devour each other and that all were combined In an effort to enslave tho working man. "For ten years this campaign of mis representation has been going on with little or no contradiction on the part of business, nnd the Chamber of Commerco of tho United States enters the field tp present a legitimate defense against these unjust attacks. Business Generally llonent. "Ninety per cent of business Is honest. The American business man stands In the forefront of those who adhere to the highest principles of honor and Integrity, but single-handed he has been powerless to present a proper defense." Other objepts touched upon by Mr. Wheeler were the assistance of Indus trial corporations; the development of a merchant marine; the enactment of mone tary legislation, making the banking sys tem more stable and allowing fo branches in foreign ports and the en couragement of reciprocity. Tho organization, he said, was being effected not for tho purposes of warfare, but that compromise and arbitration, might take the place of open antagonism.
