MILWAUKEE, Wis., Aua ll-Unlted
tates Senator Josr-ph L. Brlstow of Kan
sas, hi tiia ipteoh her tonight, which he
stated was In reply to the letter of Senator
Nelson W. Aldrlrh, defending himself
against the charge of the Kansas senator
relating to the tariff on rubber, launched
Into the subject by saying that "Senator
Aldrlch declares that the Intercontinental
Rubber company la not a truat, and at the
am time admits that It Is a holding com
pany." Senator Aldrlch then took up Mr. Ald
rlch'a declaration that neither he nor his
family had profited, directly or Indirectly,
by the tariff on manufactured rubber, add
In;: "Yet he admits that he is producing
mllllons of pounds of crude rubber per an
num, selling; It to American manufactur
ers, and that he Increased the duty on their
products when they did not need It for
Then referring to his own speech at Wln
lleld, Kan., on July 9, Senator Brlstow de-,
dared that Mr. Aldrlch took exception to
bis remarks on the rubber Cuty especially.
"He Ignores the other features of my
speech," Mr. Brlstow said.
Mr. Aldrlch declares that the Interconti
nental Rubber company is not a trust, and
at the same time admits that It is a hold
ing company which controls numerous
subsidiary organizations that were organ
ized for the purpose of handling the crude
rubber business In various parts of the
"He says that neither he nor his family
lias profited directly or indirectly by the

mits that he Is producing millions of
pounds of crude rubber per annum, selling
. It to American manufacturers, and that
. tie Increased the duty on their products
when they did not need It for protection
and when they already had control of the
American market and were, exporting man

i "In my speech at Wlnfield, Kan., July
I, I criticized the Payne-Aldrlch tariff bill,
referring especially to the duty on lead
and lead products, cotton cloth and woolen,
especially referring to duties on cottoq
cloths and manufactured rubber. I de
clared that the duties on these various
commodities were fixed not In the Interest
of the people, but of certain trusts, eon
bines and speculators.
Ignores Other Feataree.
"Mr. Aldrlch, in a signed statement, takes
exception to my remarks on the rubber duty
specially. He ignores the other feature of
my speech. He also makes a number of
' sarcastic references to myself and other re
publican senators who saw fit to vote In
the Interest of our constituents rather than
as Mr. Aldrlch wanted us to. HI opinion
of myself and the other senators Is of little
consequence, but I desire to call special
v attention to some of the statements of Mr.
.Aldrlch made In his explanation. He says
'It is true that an Increase in the rate took
place In paragraph 463, which Includes cer-
other items, and It Is true that I . am a
stockholder and director In the Interconti
nental Rubber company; but none of the
other statements referred to contain a
single element of truth.' Now, what were
the other statements I made? '
"I stated that the Continental Rubber
company waa organized under the laws' of
New Jersey, January 29, 1903; that the Con
tinental Rubber Company of America was
organized under the laws of New Jersey,
January 6, 1901, and that the Interconti
nental Rubber company, waa organised un
der the laws of New Jersey, December I,
1806. Now Mr. Aldrlch says that the first
two companies named were subsidiary com-
hanUi nf ,ha Int.rivinHnantBl nuKtup nm
pany and that It owned til of their stock
' and they were organized for the sake of
. convenience. How could they be subsidiary

when both of them were organized before

"He says that these two older companies
surrendered their charters In 1908 for the
' purpose of -saving expenses and taxes. But

"These sweeping powers are a very In-
. tcrestlng way of saving expenses.
"I stated that this Intercontinental com
' pany, after these mergers were completed.
which was on December 6. 1909, had within
three months and four days paid on Its
prefered stock dividends aggregating II 1
per cent. This Mr. Aldrlch In substance
admits, though he said In his first state-
ment that the only element of truth In
my entfre discussion of the rubber duty
was that the duty was Increased and tha
he was a stok holder In the company.
Rubber Cam ta,ny Own Other stock
"I stated that the Intercontinental Rubber
company owned the capital stock of five
other .companies In addition to those
absorbed by the mergers referred to and
that through some of these companies it
owned several million acres of land In
Mexico and was producing from ita fac
tories from 800,000 to 1,100 pounds of crude
rubber per month.
"This Mr. Aldrlch admits In his state
ments, yet he declares that the only element
of truth In reference to the rirbber duty
was the fact that the duty was Increased
on the manufactures, and that he was a
stockholder in the Intercontinental Rubber
"I stated also that the Intercontinental
Rubber company owned a controlling In
terest In the capital stock of the American
Congo company, organised through the con
cessions given 'by the Belgian government
and It controlled under this concession J,
800.000 acre of land on the Congo In Africa.
Thia Mr. Aldrlch neither affirms nor denies,
but he knows It is true.
I stated that since the tariff bill passed
and since the absorbing of these other
companies by the Intercontinental Rubber
company the price of manufactured rubber
has advanced to the people of the United
States about IS per cent. This Mr. Aldrlch
admits. Me denied that he or his family
have any Interest In any concern manu
facturing rubber or that the International
Rubber company controls the price of crude
Oraranlsed to Control Democrat.
"Mr. Aldrlch knows that the Ouggen-
helms, Thomas F. Ryan, H. P. Whitney
and himself are the controlling Influences
in this Intercontinental Rubber company.
and under Its charter, from which I have
quoted, It Is empowered to transact any
kind of business on earth except the
preaching of the gospel, and that it,
through the organization of subsidiary
companies, does transact business In ra
rioua parts of the world; that It handles
large quantities of crude rubber: that it
was organized for .the purpose .of getting
control of the market and to supply crude
rubber and do ojther .things,' and by the
controlling of the supply of crude rubber
that any manufacturing ooncern. In Amer
ica would be absolutely under Its control.
"The organization of this holding com
pany Is a developing process In the organ
isation of the rubber business, Just as
Rockefeller organized the oil business,'
Ryan the tobacco' business and the Gug
genheim the lead and smelting business.,
"lie admits that the Increased duty on
mu miucu vi uiccuuu kivcu m
the American manufacturers when It was
not needed here. As a result of this In
creased duty they could advance the price
to the American consumer without danger
of competition from foreign sources, and,
therefore, Mr". Aldiich's company would be
able to sell Its product to them at higher
prices. If they refused to patronize him,
under his charter he has ample power to
engage in any kind of competition with
them, and would be backed by the Ryans,
the Guggenheim and Rockefeller, and no
sensible man In business would dare to un
dertake to compete with .these powerful In
terests. Importation Decreased.
"Mr. Aldrlch further admit that the In
creased duty of manufactured rubber re
sulted In decreased importation. This Mr.
Cannon In Kansas denied and stated In a
public address ' at Emporia that I made
false statement' In regard, to such de
creased importations. Mr. Aldrlch, In Ms
statement admit that I was right and
that Mr. Cannon made the misstatement.
Mr. AJdrlch, aflrolU that tha annual produc
tion of from-130,000,000 to $40 000,000 worth
of crude rubber produced iu hi plantations
In - Mexico come into the United States
without , paying' any duty or taxes to the
general government and In his own. state
ment says that He Increased the duties on
the products of the American factories, his
customer thereby aiding them to monopo
lize the American market enabling thorn
to pay him better prices for the raw ma
terial which he had to sell and which they
had to have, yet he declares that he had
no Interest In the Increasing of duties.
, "The long letter submitted from. Sharetts
Is one of those ridiculous statements that
this man Sharretts Is aocustomed , to make
to suit the convenience of Mr. Aldrlch
when there Is any explanation to be madn
In. regard to the tariff bill. It in a long
Involved effort to mislead and deceive
those who are patient enough to read (t
and has no practical bearing on the case. '
"I should have been glad If Mr. Aldrlch
had said something about the load - and
the Guggenheim smelting trust and about
Mr, L!.pitfs testimony In regard to the
lnci eased duty on cotton' cloths, and stated
why he put Increased duty on those cloths
when the manufacturers said they did not
