OFFERS SEVERAL AMENDMENTS
Want Many Canadian Product Ad
mitted to United State Free of
Duty Say Administration Measure
I Obviously Unjust.
Washington, June 29. Beginning;
with Senator Cummin' attack on the
reciprocity measure as legislation un
just to the agricultural interests of
the country, and concluding with
Senator lfcirah's denunciation as a Re
publican betrayal of the farming Inter
ests, the senate debate was all antag-
OK'stio to ;he agreement and critical
U . president and his methods.
Senator Cummins, who continued
h s speech today, attacked not only
the construction of the reciprocity
agreement itself, which he said put
the whole burden of free trade upon
the farmer without giving him any
benefits lu the gulHe of a reduction of
duty on manufactured products, but
he also criticized the power exercised
by the president to negotiate it and
to bring it to the point of a definite
agreement between the two countries.
In doing this, said Senator Cum
mins, the president hnd usurped the
powers of congress and had exceeded
the power lodged in him to deal with
foreign nations upon revenue mutters.
If a rerlproolty agreement was to be
made with Canada, he said, the orig
inal proposal should have come from
congress. Instead of through presi
dential advances, which had brought
the agreement to a point whore con
gress was assured it could not be
changed or amended.
"I know that the day had come for
the farmer," declared Senator Cum
mins, "to be excluded from the bene
fits of the protective tariff. The de
cree has been written; It need only
the official signature for the time to
begin to exclude him from the com
pany of the manufacturers of the Unit
Senator Borah's criticism was based
on the. record of the Republican party
as the advocate of protection for the
farmer. lie quoted from Republican
platforms, campaign document, cam
paign arguments and definitions of
policy to show that the abolishment
of the protection on farm products
was a reversal of all Republican pol

Senator Cummins' amendments pro
posed to admit free from Canada both
raw and manufactured products, in
cluding fresh meats, canned meats,!
barley, malted flour, Iron, steel, wool
en goods, cotton goods, silk and leath
er goods. These amendments apply
only on the American side of the line.
Cummins' Opinion of Bill.
"It seems to be conceded," he said,
that a minority of the Republican
senators, most of whom have advocat
ed high and Indefensible duties In the
tariff law on manufactured products,
and a majority of the Democrats, who
have professed adherence to the peo
ple for a tariff for revenue only, pro
pose to pass this reciprocity bill with
The bill, ho said, would accomplish
only two important things: "Admit
free of duty the agricultural products
of Canada, and admit a small quantity
of wood pulp and print paper."
After the pannage of the bill through
this combination, Senator Cummins
said the Democrats expected to make
a combination-with Republicans who
favor tatir revision to posg other bills.
"It Is perfectly plain to me," he
added, "that the Republicans whom I
have mentioned, will be valiant enough

rich and powerful manufacturers."
