Cercno . Payne Bitterly Criticised in
Address by Congressman Ami.
CHANGE COVEBS BESOLUTION
New Yorker Aeeased of Refaalaa; to
rbaaldrr It la Committee Let
ters Are Read aa Erl-deaee.
WASHINGTON. May 20-A sensation waa
sprung unexpectedly In the house late to
day by Representative Butler Ames, a re
publican member from Massachusetts,
when he obtained the floor for five minutes
and proceeded to read a series of letters
which had passed between himself and
Hepresentatlve Hereno E. Payne of New
York, chairman of the ways and means
committee and republican floor leader, In
which he scored Mr. .fayne In strong
Trie letters concerned a resolution Intro
duced In the house March 81 by Mr. Ames,
which set forth that negotiations should
tie opened with Canada with a view to
establishing closer commercial relation
with that country. Mr. Ames' resolution
waa referred to the ways and means com
mittee and the author charged that Mr.
I'ayne refused to allow the committee to
consider it, although he (Ames) presented
a petition favoring It, signed by seventy
eeven republican members and also urging
the adoption of the resolution.
Ames States Caae.
"On three separate days I approached your
august person and asked verbally and po
litely for a hearing by your committee on
my resolution," said Mr. Ames In one let
ter. "To my first request you arrogantly
Insisted that 'as far as you could find out,
no one wanted the resolution, and It was
not good political sense.' Kellevlng that
your lack of courtesy waa Inexcusable and
that you were unable to understand or
appreciate that many republican members
of the house, not only wanted the reso
lution passed, but who, not yet having lost
all touch with present desires of the party
and the country generally, did believe the
resolution to be good political sense, 1
went to the unusual labor of circulating a
petition Which I enclosed."
Continuing the letter said the petition was
signed by seventy-seven republican mem
bers, but Mr. Payne had glvn It no con
sideration. It waa recounted that Its
author had seen a letter dictated in his
presence by President Taft and addressed
to Mr. Payne favoring the resolution. It
recited that Mr. Ames had twice spoken
to Mr. Payne about the president's letter
and that Mr. Payne . told him that his
(Payne's) relations were such wltn the
president that "when he wrote you such a
letter he did want the resolution."
Mr. Payne's Reply.
Mr. Payne replied saying that the fact
that "seventy-soven men have signed your
petition does not change the situation in
regard to your resolution."
After expressing surprise that the peti
tion of seveiny-seven republican members
should be disregarded, Mr. Ames' letter
continued: "Your whole attitude hae so
lacked in common courtesy and a proper
vense of proportion that I feel forced to
make this written protest Your letter. If
freely translated, should be interpreted to
rend:. 'The desires of many republican
representatives and the public be damned.'
"It la Just such hide-bound Intolerance
of the desires and rights of others that la
forcing members to advocate, against their
better Judgment, a committee of commit
tees in the house to purge Itself of auch
Individual misrule and abuse of power. It
is ' Just such domination and disregard of
the public desire that is fostering the move
ment of insurgency, not only In the house,
but also the widespread insurgency with
which we are now face to face."
When Mr. Ames had concluded Mr.
Payne said he had Informed Mr. Ames that
ne believed the president should take up
the Canadian negotiations and after that
it would be time for congress to act. -
Continuing he said: "Now, I stated that
to the gentleman, not with my hat In my
hand, but aa politely . and suavely as I
could state it. I did not exhibit any con
tempt of the gentleman, who, I understand.

TKORiA. May 21-Prenldent John H.
Walker of the United Mine Workers of
ITInols has Issued a call to all the miners'
delegates to mfet In private tomorrow and
plan for future action. Negotiations with
the Illinois operators came to actuol close
this afternoon when President Walker
called sine die adjournment of the Joint
conference. He ad attempted to prevail
on President Moorehead of the operators
to call the adjournment, but on the latter's
refusal, Wulker wielded the gavel.
President Walker Is as much at a loss
as any other delegate as to what action
further than callinK a general Indefinite
strike in Illinois will be taken at tomor
"First, I think, we will call every man
In the mlner't union from further work,
until some sort of agreement Is made
through the concessions of either one of
th econtendlng associations. This call will
Include pumpers, pit men and others who
have been working as stipulated in the
temporary agreement. There Is no telling
how long this strike will last, but Its
aspect Is serious. There are nearly 75,000
men out of work."
The operators Issued a statement today
declaring to concede the demands of the
miners would not only disturb the dif

0KLAH0MANS OBJECT TO
WAY BANK BOARD IS DOING
Much Dtaaatlafactlon Exlats In South
ern state Over Gaaranty Law
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOIN. May 21.-(Speclal.)-The criti
cism made by Martin Plinery, secretary to
former Governor Sheldon, of the bank
guaranty law of Oklahoma has been veri
fied by a newspaper published In El Reno,
where Dlmery Is now . located, which was
received at the state house today.
The newspaper criticised the action of
the banking board in not permitting an
investigation of the affairs of the defunct
Columbia Bank and Trust company and
bjects to the proposed turning over of
the bank's affairs to a purchaser of bank
rupt concerns for whatever price the insti
tution may bring.' It Is held that on the
remaining assets the state can realise noth
ing except through the bankruptcy con
cern. The governor of the state is criti
cized aa is the banking board for em
ploying so many outside attorneys when
the money reported spent for this pur
pose, the paper says, - should have gone
toward paying off the bank's Indebtedness.
In discussing a report that the banks are
going to resist the assessment of 1 per
cent on the increase In their deposits for
the last year, the paper says:
The bankers have seen aelr assessments
of the last two years absorbed into the
gulf made by the failure ot the Columbia
iiank & Trust company and although no
Investigation of the conditions of the fall
ure is being permuted, it la generally un
derstood that this assessment of 1 per cent
on the Increase of deposits is made to
cover the balance of the deficit of the de
Accordingly It goes hard With the honest
bankers wno nave conducted their air airs
carefully and whose banks are In good
condition to put more of their honestly
earned money Into the "Black Hole of. the
Columbia." For this reason they are pre
paring to resist the payment and stand the
consequences. a ne memoa oi proceaure
of the banking board and the banking law
run in such difficult channels tnat the
bankers feel tnat this assessment of an
additional 1 per cent will go the same "way
of the unknown" which their former as
sessments have taaen.
The bank guaranty fund has been in a
nrcmrlous condition since tne failure of
the Columbia and this assessment is thought
about sufficient to maKe up ior me ae
nutinn of the lund which followed and pre
pare for any failure whlcn might come

Bryan by New York Friends
NEW YORK. May 21. "Uncontaminated
soul. Illustrious leader, peerless philosopher
and pure-minded advocate of the people,"
were a few of the descriptive phrases hung
In garlands about the neck of William
Jennings Bryan last night by the speakers
who preceded him at a dinner given In his
honor by the Speaker's club.
Mr. Bryan eschewed politics and confined
himself to his subject of "What Consti
tutes a Good Speaker."
"I can claim to be a public speaker," he
said, with a suggestion of a smile, "If you
take quantity for a qualification rather
than quality. It is safe to say I've talked
as much as any one for the opportunity
"I've heard chairman Introduce me,"
continued Mr. Bryan, "like this: 'We have
with great effort persuaded Br. Bryan
to speak.' They didn't know me.
"I believe in public speaking. I am glad
to help within my power to make more
public speakers. For, in proportion as a

In that proportion should every citizen
have the ability to speak.
"Oratory, In truth. Is not dead and not
only has the newspaper not removed the
necessity for public speaking, but It has
made it imperative that there should bo
public speaking to expose the mls-represen-
tallons." One of the compliments tendered
Mr. Bryan did not please him. Earlier
In tho evening John Temple Uraves had
said: "From the tip ot his eloquent tongue
he has plucked three presidential nomina
tions." In the course of his speech Mr. Bryan
replied, "It wasn't fair to say that I have
