GR0SVEN0R F0R CUBAN BILL
Dee In res Prenrst Tariff on Sagar Is
Unreasonable aad Demands Change
In Schedule. -
WASHINGTON, April 10 The debate on
the Cuban reciprocity bill In the house to
day was devoid ot enlivening features. The
most notable speech of the day was made
by Mr. Grosvenor of Ohio. He answered
the critics who have charged him with In
consistency by- saying that reciprocity was
sound republican doctrine and that tariff
schedules were not sacred. He predicted
that the time would come when there would
be an Inexorable demand for revision of tbe
Mr. Hilt of Illinois, chairman of the for
eign affairs committee, reported back tbe
Cochran resolution of inquiry calling on
the secretary of state for Information re
garding the alleged removal by Canadian
officers of landmarks along tbe Alaskan
border. The resolution waa adopted with
out division. He reported back the Sulzer
resolution, railing upon the aecretary of
state for the report of the governor of
Louisiana and all other correspondence re
lating to the establishment of a British
base of supplies uesr Louisiana and the
shipment of horses and mules for the use
of the British army in South Africa. The
resolution was adopted.
The house then resumed the consideration
of the Cuban reciprocity bill. Mr. Grosve
nor of Ohio, the first spesker todsy, made
an earnest speech In favor of the bill. The
president and his cabinet, he said, favored
legislation on the line of the pending
He said with great emphasis that he had
never yet permitted himself to worship the
tariff system as a fetich-not to be touched
or examined. He warned the young repub
licans about him that tf they believed the
present tariff schedules were to ba forever
defended they had as well retire to private
life. The republican party, he announced,
must not chain Itself to the tariff schedules.
With some feeling Mr. Grosvenor then
answered tbe charges of Inconsistency
brought against himself. He called atten
tion to the remarks on reciprocity made by
President Roosevelt at Charleston yester
day, which be described as "tbe beet SDeecb
the president ever made," and humorously
remarked that he wondered at tbe temerity
of tbe president In making such statements
while republicans In the house were de
nouncing such statements ss party disloy
alty. The present tariff on raw auger, he de-
! dared, waa high beyond all reason. If the
-0 I" cent reduction were made tbe tariff
n. sucar would then be 5 per cent higher
ihnn the fratnera of the Dlngley bill ln
ici d d. If the beet sugar people had an
'i.e'uitry that could not stand against the
world with $1.40 a huudred protection, then
it had better be abandoned.
In conclusion Mr. Grosvenor denied that
the pending bill constituted an assault unon
the protective theory.
Mr. Weeka of Michigan followed with a
speech In. opposition to the bill. He argued
that there waa no ' obligation upon us .to
aid Cuba. It was ridiculous, be contended,
to say that , because we freed Cuba at the
cost of hundreds of lives and millions of
dollars, that therefore we were under a
load of debt to the Island.
