Senator Writes on "Disgrace
of Cotton Schedule."
DUTIES H!S1IER THAN EVER
Charflea Tfiat Under the Provisions of
the Payna Bill the Protective Policy
Becomes a Plunder Policy—De
clares the Tariff Law Recently En
acted Increase* Rates on Cotton
Goods 25 Per Cent.
Madison, Wis., Nor. f.—Charging
that the cotton schedule in the Payne
iUdrich tariff bill permits the protec
tive policy to become a plunder policy
limited States Senator La Follette de
nounces that si hedule bitterly in this
week's issue of La Follotte's Maga
zine. Under the caption "The Dis
grace- of the Cotton Schedule" the
leading editorial says in part:
"In the cot ten schedule of the Ding
hy law per ye i sion of the protective
principle wag conspicuous in all its
forms. Jn the Favne Aldrkh-Cannon
downward revision' tariff the out
rages of the cotton schedules are per
petuated and accentuated. The power
behind thi3 new cotton schedule was
the power of successful public plun
der. And the incentive to It was
Mere plunder.
"Under the Dingley cctton sched
the duties levied on the imports
it 1907 amounted to a fraction less
than 45 per cent of the value of the
goods imported. The duties of the
Pa yne-Aldrich-Cannon cotton schedule
•pplied to the importations of 1907
Would average ov«r 50 per cent of
the vilue of the goods. Under the
aew schedule there are mere prohlb
Hive duties, higher than before. Con
"servatively uthnated the new sched
lie is at least 25 per cent higher than
4jie old.
"There is no Justification for in
creasing the cotton schedule. The
labor cost in cotton manufacture in
this country 1b decreasing, sat fftfe,
creasing."

Scenes of Wildest Horror Enacted
Throughout the City.
Teheran, Nov. 6.—-MessftfM re
ceived here front Ardebil, where the
tribesmen have risen, say the natives
are besieging the Russian consulate,
where the Persian governor and other
government officials, the clergy and
all foreigners havo taken refuge. The
tribesmen have demanded the imme
diate surrender of the place, threat
ening if it holds out to burn the town
and massacre all. The consulate is
defended by a few Cossack guards,
who are not equipped for a long re
sistance, having little ammunition.
There is nc hope that the reinforce
ments sent here from Tabriz will ar
rive In less than three weeks, too
late, It iB believed, to save the in
habitants. Under orders from St. Pe
tersburg a second strong Russian de
tachment started for Ardebil with in
structions to avenge th massacre of
the foreigners if they are too late to
prevent it.
The town outside of the Russian
consulate is the scene of wildest hor
rors. Tribesmen are looting, burning
bouses and outraging women and
children. It is unlikely that the lead
ers will be able to restrain their wild
followers from slaughtering if the con
sulate falls, even should they desire
to avoid Russian vengeanos.,
