GEM'.RAI. DEB ATK IX .THE HOIBE
Watch Trust and Denatured Alcohol
Occupy Attention of Speakers.
WASHINGTON. April 6. The tariff, rail
way mall subsidy, denatured alcohol and
enlarged postal facilities for western cities
were the features of the debate In . the
house today. What were alleged to be the
Iniquities of the Dinglcy law, so far us the
manufacture of watches la concerned, were
discussed by Mr. Rainey of Illinois, whose
tariff revision speech was listened to with
much Interest. The so-called standpatters
made copious notes for the discussions on
protection which are foreshadowed.
Mr. Rainey, after the house met and the
journal had been approved, recalled his
speech on the alleged Iniquities of the pro
tective tariff. Using the Watch trust as
an object lesson to show how protection
Works In behalf of monopolies, thev lone
democrat from Illinois In the nutional legis
lature set up "a kindergarten school for
Mr. Rainey displayed a number of
watches of American make which, he said,
had been bought abroad and are now being
resold In the United States.
' ''Why does the gentleman continue to
speak ot the watch trust?" asked Mr.
Gardner, (Mass.) "I am a stockholder in
the Waltham company and I have no
knowledge that they are In a trust."
"You may have to show that before the
ways and means committee," retorted Mr.
Mr. Rainey read a letter from the speaker
to a friend in the west, in which he stated
that "tariff revision would come in the not
"How can It come if the speaker doesn't
want it?" asked Mr. 8ulzer (N. Y.).
"It will come because the next house will
be democratic," responded Mr. Rainey,
which brought a round of applause from
the democratic side.
Mr. Rainey said in 1880 there were twenty
seven watch factories In the United States.
Now there are but thirteen. He said that
there la 15 pur cent mere men employed
In the watch movement factories now than
in 1880, But there is 600 per cent more
women employed and 2U) per cent mora
children, which, Mr. Rainey thought, fcr
the perpetuity of the race, this condition
ought to be investigated.
Mr. Rainey asked the republicans if he
had been sufficiently explicit regarding the
Watch trust whether ha had satisfied the
chairman of the committee on ways and
means. He charged . Mr. Payne (N. Y.)
with having gone about the chamber yes
terday and advised the republicans not to
ask any questions,
"You must have been. a mind reader,"
replied Mr. Payne.
"There are nu leaders on the majority
side ot this house," continued Mr. Rainey.
"The real leaders of the republican party
are the McCurdys, McCalls and Hamilton
the Rockefellers, who skulk behind stone
walls to resist service they are the real
leaders of the republican party,"
Mr. Murdock (Kau.) speaking In favor
ot the bill denaturalising alcohol, said:
Mr. Murdock made the claim that If the
tax is taken oft denatured alcohol it will
work a revolution In the Held of fuel,
power and llluminants. He said:
This will be accomplished partially
through known methods, but a greater de
velopment will come through methods to
be discovered, for there is no Industrial
avenue closed to the "open sesume" of
American genius. By known methods the
same volume of alcohol burns nearly twice
as long as kerosene and gives a fur better
light; It ia a cleaner and safer fuel thun
gaaollne. By methods that are to come I
believe alcohol will advance far beyond
Its present superiority. 1 believe this be
cause this country, the chief producer of
coin, which Is the best source of alcohol,
has for nearly fifty years held Industrial
alcohol In leash. In those fifty years all
other chemical products and fuels and
llluminants have been free. Burnable al
cohol for Industrial use has been held
back. Release It; let American genius
have hold of it and It will open the door
to a chamber of marvels.
The most Important effect of removing
the tax on denatured alcohol would be its
regulation of the present erratic prico of
kerosene and gasoline. Gasoline veils in
some of the eastern cities at cents per
gallon and In some of the western stales
at 10 cents per gallon. Kerosene has a
similar range. The price of both ia ar
bitrarily fixed. Actual testa have-demonstrated
that alcohol at SO cents a gallon ia
cheaper for light than kertmene at 15 cents
a gallon.' Twenty-cent alcohol would drive
10-cent kerosene down in price or out of
the market. For Internal combustion en
gines 20-cent alcohol would bring -cent
gasoline down to 30 cents and would In
time supplant It. perhaps, ber-ause gasoline,
of which petroleum yieius dui 2 cr cent.

commissioner, reported to the Fifty-third
congress that In his opinion 3.1 per cent,
of the whole product prior to the Imposi

of alcohol per capita. leaving out of con

be far greater than that.
