In tho senate, May 14, Mr. Root
of Now York lectured senators for
"elaborate discussion" and "decla

Mr. LaFollette replied sarcastically

of Mississippi also sailed into the
New York senator, saying with point
ed referenco to Mr. Root: "If he
objects to so much speaking he can
do most of it himself. We do not
want any leotures on our business
here. It does no become any man,
however important he may consider
himself, to come into a chamber of
his peers and talk about such mat
ters. We come hero to do as we
please, and the man who comes here
to please somebody else should be
kicked out of this chamber by the
people at his home."
An Associated Press report of the
day's proceedings follow:
Tho Cummins' amendments reduc
ing the duty on round iron and slabs
one-tenth of a cent was then voted on
and defeated on a roll call by a vote
of 35 to 42. Senator McEnery of
Louisiana', (dem.) voted with the re
publicans against the amendment and
Senators Beveridge, Borah, Bristow,
Brown, Burkett, Clapp, Crawford,
Cummins, Dolliver, LaFollette and
Nelson with the democrats for it.
Seeking free trade in all farming
implements and tools used by car
penters and blacksmiths, Mr. Mc
Lanrin of Mississippi offered an
amendment exempting from duty the
only articles mado of iron and steel,
such as trace chains, hammers,
screws anddoor hinges. The amend
ment was defeated on a roll call. The
vote was 52 against and 22 in favor.
"I see that the republican party is
now reunited," said Mr. Bailey when
the vote was announced, ''and I ask
unanimous consent that on Monday
next a vote may be taken on the in
come tax amendment."
Mr. Aldrich requested Mr. Bailey
to change his amendment to provide
for a vote on the tariff bill and all.
amendments on June 1, Whichthe
latter said he favored.
Mr. Nelson of Minnesota objected
to Mr. Bailey's request, saying he
was opposed to including an income
tax in the tariff bill unless It was"
necessary for revenue purposes.
"There is no use of the seance be
tween the senator from Texas and
the senator from Rhode Island about
a vote on June 1," continued Mr.
Nelson. "I hope we will get around
to that, but there aro two of the most
important schedules, 'those relating
to woolen goods and cotton goods,
remaining to be disposed of."
Mr. Bailey demanded sharply:
wnat noes the senator mean by
"I assure the senator that I meant
It entirely in a' Christian spirit," re
plied Mr. Nelson, but he added that
if the senator was curious he would
explain that he had seen the senator
from Rhode Island whisper to the
senator from Texas and almost imme
diately came the latter's motion that
a date be fixed for a vote on the in
come tax amendment.
Mrr Bailey appeared intensely
angry at tho inferred insinuation
that there was an understanding be
tween the two senators and he hotly
"I havo always noticed that tho
candid and; honest man is slow to
suspect others of improper motives
and conduct and when I find a man
who readily suspects others of mis
conduct, I conclude that he has been
guilty of similar misconduct.""
He announced that he would tell
the senator from Minnesota just what
had been said in his conversation
With Senator Aldrich. He said that
ho had noticed all of the "insurgents"
had voted against the amendment of
Senator McLaurin and that he had
expressed the opinion to Senator Aid
rich that the "insurgents" had
rewueu an agreement not to sup
port an amendment which had been
offered by a democrat and that Sen
ator Aldrich had replied that he had
beard one of the "insurgents" say so.
Senator LaFollette disclaimed hav
ing any understanding on that sub
ject. On motion of Mr. Aldrich the sen
ate agreed to meet at 10 o'clock daily
The breaking up of party lines in
the vote taken in the senate yester
day on iron ore gave rise to consid
erable speculation as to how the
members of the majority and "mi
nority would divide on various
schedules for taxing the products ;of
steel. It Is expected that now that
so many senators have spoken on
the bill there will be more rapid
progress in obtaining votes on dis
While the paragraph relating to
scrap iron is next in order for con
sideration, it was agreed that this
should be passed over. The present
duty on scrap iron is $4 per ton,
and this was reduced by the house
bill to 60 cents per ton, which figure
was advanced by the senate bill to
$2.50 a ton. The increase over the
house .figure is strenuously opposed
by industries which use the open
hearth process of manufacturing
steel. They assert that the high rate
is being demanded by railroads and
that practically all of the scrap iron
marketed in this country is old rails.
The contest in the steel today, there

mittee in the rates on structural
LAW OR LAWLESSNESS; WHICH?

. "The question raised by The Com
moner concerning federal licenses for
the sale of liquor in territory where
local prohibitory o.yr prevails calls
for further illumination. A,corre-.
sponden't writes to the ' Republican,
" 'The United States does not issue
licenses to sell liquors, but does tax
those known to be selling or having
them exposed for sale; and a collec
tor has no discretion as to accepting
a return made by a person selling or
intending to sell, and must by law,
immediately on payment, issue the
tax receipt, which is commonly
called a license. The United States
supreme court, in the license tax
cases (5 Wall 462) held that the
special tax stamp is not a license,
but merely a receipt for the tax. It
