"WASHINGTON, July 19.-Senator Cum
mins, opening the tariff debate today for
the progressive republicans, declared that
tho republican party lost the confidence
of the people 'and was "driven from power
largely because it Insisted! on the .main
tenance of Import duties, many of which
were unnecessarily and oppressively
Weh."
"The democratic party,."' he asserted,
"soon will be overtaken with like disaster
bccause.lt U about ,to . Inflict upon the
codntry a tariff 'law which, with respect
to many things, invites the perils of free
trade, and which with respect to many
others. Imposes duties that are danger
ously and destructively low, and which,
from end to end, grievously discriminates
against the west In favor of the east
that is to say, in favor ot the manufac
turer against tho farmer.
"The republican craft went down in
tho whirlpool ot Scylla In UU, and Its
democratlo successor Is steering straight
for the rocks ot Charybdls, whero It
will, go to pieces In tho stress of 1916.
"There Is a passageway to safety and
prosperity. The progressive .republicans
charted It In 1909 an dthoy will chart It
again In 1913. Borne time the American
people . will make the trip under these
pilots, but In the meantime we must
suffer another shipwreck, bearing It.
hardships, as I hope we will, with patriot
ism and fortitude."
'Wilson Aocnseil of Coercion.
Besides pointing out many things that
he considered destructive and entirely
unwarranted In the bill. Senator Cum
mins criticised the president' for his In
fluence exerted upon members concern
ing the tariff bill, an influence he said,
"so persistent and determined that it be
came coercive."
I do not charga, nor do I believe,'
sold Senator Cummins, "that tho presl
dent, In' terms, barters this power for
legislative subordination: but I do say
that, without barter, the knowledge of the
consequences that may follow legislative
Independence, will bring about all the
ovlla ot actual wrong-doing unless the
most scrupulous care is exercised In
communications between the president
and members of congress. It lies with
tha president himself to mark out the
path of propriety and to pursue such a
course aa will enable every member of
ot tho legislative branch of our public af.
i airs 10 teei zree ana anreaxroinea in
every vote that ho casts." '
Senator Cummin declared be believed
the bill would be modified It members
of congress voted their convictions, but
that it would not be modified, "largely
because the president, assuming to In
terpret and apply tbe economlq doctrlno
ot his party, has laid' the heavy hand
ot his power upon a branch of tbe gov
ernment that ought to be co-ordinate,
but' which, in fact, has become subordl
nate."
Cancns Methods Condemned.
Attacking u "tyrannical" tbe demo
cratlo secret caucus on the bill the Iowa
senator declared It was "more Indefensible
than the tactics resorted to by the re
publican leaders la preliminary consider
atlon ot the Payne-Aldrlch bill."
"So long as the real legislation takes
place in a caucus It cannot be known
what any man says or how any man
votes," he charged. "It Is not only In
visible, but Inaudible government "
Tariff for revenue, Senator Cummins
said, he regarded a "obsolete, unjust
and Intolerable." and that "the moment
urotectlon becomes unnecessary, freo
trade la demanded by every considera
tion of luetics and equality,"
"I would bold myself an epemy of man
kind." the senator continued, "ir uirougn
Import duUea I wero to ralao tho price of
any commodity which the people gener
ally used, and ought to Use, simply to
put money Into tha treasury of the United
States.
ItaWra rrlce" Nearly Klre Billion.

upon these things Is 25 per centum, and
that I bellove Is the estimate of the most
distinguished promoters of this1 bill, the
duties will Increase the prico of one year's
product' in the aggregate $4,700,000,000. If
those who consume, as well as those who
produce tlieo commodities, share the
benefit of the increased price the general
good will be promoted; but If our demo
cratic 'friendd are right In asserting that
those who produce the dutiable articles
are tho only beneficiaries, they ought io
shudder when they contemplate what they
are doing, tor they are not only taxing
tho people, upon tholr consumption, the

tom houses on imports, but they are tax
Ing them the $4,700,000,000 for tbs sole ben
efit ot the domestic producers of these
commodities. This Is ' an appalling con
clusion and it will shock the country
when It is fairly appreciated.
Discrimination Against West,
"The total production east of tha Mis
sissippi "river Jn the year 1809," said tho
senator, "was J2,9Hf?3,MS. Of this pro
duction $14,811,052,242 Is upon the dutiable
list, being 60 per cent of the entire pro
duction of .that- part of the1 country. Tha
total production west ot the Mississippi
river In the year named was $10,301,016,313,
of which $4.041,224,$27 was upon the duti
able -Hat, being 39 per cent of the whole
production pf that part of tho country
west or the Mississippi river. It the
democratlo doctrine so often announced
Is sound It will bo Interesting .to hear the
defense for this grievous discrimination
against the people who live In tho Mis
sissippi valley and boyond."
Tho senator declared the democrats had
treated the farmer as an outlaw in mak
ing up the bill and that many ot the
products of the farm were entitled to
protection.
