Commoner Returns to the Attack of
Underwood's Ugly Record.
Lincoln , Nob. , Aug. 19. In the cur
rent issue of the Commoner W. J.
Bryan again takes up the Underwood
Incident. Referring to the Congres
sional Record containing the speeches
of Underwood and Kitchln , Bryan con
"First , both ask for Mr. Bryan's nu-
thorlty. Mr. Bryan has given It , the
Omaha World-Herald , owned by Sen
'Second , Mr. Kltchln admits making
the speech attributed to him. He ex
presses surprise that n democrat would
use It. Thnt Is the partisan view , that
it is proper to criticise an opponent
but improper to criticise one of your
own party. Mr. Kltchln Is now con
vinced that Mr. Underwood was right
in favoring delay in reporting n bill
reducing the iron nnd steel schedules.
Mr. Brynn is not convinced. The ac
tion of the senate on other bills should
have no influence on the house pro
gram. There Is no good reason why
the house should not proceed to re
port bills as long as it is in session ,
the more the better.
"But the most notable thing about
Mr. Underwood's speech is that it
does not meet the real point at issue.
Did some one offer a resolution in
structing the committee to proceed
to report other bills and did Mr. Un
derwood oppose to defeat It. The
World-Herald dispatch says he did
and that is the basis of Mr. .Bryan's
criticism. Mr. Underwood admits that
some one offered such a resolution
and that he opposed it. Did Mr. Clark
offer or support such a resolution ? If
so , why did Mr. Underwood not so
state ? If Mr. Clark did not introduce
or support such a resolution , why did
Mr. Underwood not specifically deny
the report ?
"The fact that In the beginning ho
asked for immediate reduction on iron
and steel has weight but it does not
outweigh his opposition to immediate
reduction now. His reasons for his
present attitude are proper subjects
"Finally it will be noticed that he
did not answer the criticism of the
secret caucus. Does he stand for
dark lantern methods ? Docs he be
lieve that members should be per
mitted to hide behind a caucus which
furnishes no record vote as a mem
ber of congress ?
"Mr. Underwood can avail himself
of his personal privilege to denounce
a criticism but his explanation docs
not explain If Mr. Underwood's an-
swer is satisfactory to the democratic
members of congress Mr. Bryan ap
peals from their judgment to the judg
ment of their constituents. "
