Y ML C A, Building, Corner Sixteenth and Douglas Streets,
lief can be secured merely by retrench
ment. There can be no reciprocity treaties con
sidered by the senate unless the president
first negotiates them and send them there.
The Initiative Is with him. But If he
should find himself able to make sucu
treaties the senate. I am sure, would not
ratify them unlnss It was found on ex
amination of their provisions that they
did not seriously Injure any important
American Industry. What -will be ulti
mately decided on with respect to U can
not be foretold, but It can be regarded as
settled that no Important changes, If any
at all, are likely to be made In the tariff
by treaties of any kind; certainly not for
the purpose of Increasing the revenues,
and that we must tn cohstniuence find some
other wsy than by reciprocity to make up
our deficit, '
Sooner or later there will be revision of
the tariff, for ths republican party, whllo
unalterably committed to protection. Is not
wedded to schedules, and will nut hesitate
to make changes In rates when changed
conditions make It necessary to do so.
It has been charged that freight i-tes
are too high; that rebates are secretly
given, and that discriminations are prac
ticed, and It la proposed that all these
evils shall be cured by conferring the ratr
making power on the Interstate Commerce
commission. But what appear to be. -discriminations
are In many Instance?, found
on investigation lo be due to. the law of
competition and the result of natural
forces and conditions, over which neither
congress nor the railroads have any. con
troi. There are, however; many eesea tor
which there is no sue hi excuse. andr f of
which we must and will provide an effect
ive remedy. But It does not follow that
to - remedy these abuses the rate making
power should be conferred on the Inter
state Commerce commission, as the Ohio
democrat 10 platform of this year, propnseo
I believe such a provision Is unnecessary
to' correct the evils complained of and that
it would a both -unwise nnd unjust. The
Interstate Commerce commission Is com
posed of five very capable, upright, gn
tlemnt, who have rendered good service,
but neither they nor any other similar
body, acting, as they must act. could sat
isfactorily discharge such a duty. A bet
ter way may be found of making these
rates than that which Is now In vogue, but
I do not believe It possible for congress
for to provide It by entrusting such a
complicated, delicate and vitally Important
duty to any such agency of Its creation, as
Is that which hae been proposed. There
are serious legal questions Involved In such
a proposition. There are numerous diffi
culties of a practical character thai must
arise the moment the government under
takes such a duty.

OPEN LETTERT0 M'CALL

NEW YORK, Sept. .-In an open letter
to President. John' A. McCall of the New
York Life Insurance company, 1 Franklin
Leonard, Jr., a defeated democratic can
didate for congress In the Seventeenth dis
trict Of thl city, today asked Mr. McCall
how much of 'his money? pal on a life in
surance policy, had' been used to 'defeat
him. Mr. ; Leonard' letter was prompted
by President McCall's statement before the
legislative Investigating committee that he
had ordered a contribution of about $41,000
to- the republican national campaign fund
In 1904 The letter follows:
Mr. John A. McCall, President New York
Life Insurance Company, New York City
Dear Sir: Laat year I held a policy
amounting to J,000 In the New York Life
Insurance company and paid the yearly
premium. At the same time, was nomi
nated for congress by the aemocra'lo party
In ths Seventeenth district. This was a
close and doubtful district and you will
doubtless admit that large sums from the
republican campaign fund were expended
in the district. Personally, I am satisfied
that those funds helped materially to bring
about my defeat.
I would particularly like to know how
muoh of my money paid to your company
In trust for my little family, after my
death, together with the funds of more
than 23,000 other democrats and friends
who cast their votes for me in the Seven
teenth district, was used to bring about
my defeat and to defeat the whole ot these
I venture the opinion that even my re
publican opponents would hardly advocate
the use of my funds and the funds of thou
sands of other policy holders In this man
ner. Yours truly.
