WASHINGTON. July 3l.-Martln M.
Mulhall's cross examination by attorneys
for tho National Association ot Manu
facturers before the senato lobby com
mittee today opened with a lively row
between Senator Reed and Attorney
Kobert McCarter. McCarter Insisted on
aRklngquesttons himself; Senator Reed In
sisted that all questions should go
through the committee; Chairman Over
man ruled with Senator Reed.
McCarter precipitated tho outbreak by
asking Mulhall If he had not been dis
charged from the Cleveland police force
ten years ago for violation of a state
law. Mulhall replied he was dismissed
for political reasons and demanded
"I was advised by friends to refuse to
answer," he said. "I want counsel. I
Insist on It and refuse to go on until I
have It. I'll go to Jail before I answer
questions about my personal -affairs
thirty or forty years ago."
"Instend of being designed to throw
llt'ht on this case, many of these ques
tions are designed to throw mud at the
witness," doclared Senator Reed. "This
Is an Investigation; not a trial. I Insist
you havo no right to say a word here,"
he concluded, addressing McCarter.
Mulhall withdrew his demand for coun
sel and the hearing proceeding with the
attorneys submitting their questions to
CnIN It Vlclon Lie.
"Is It not true that Samuel II. Springer,
who resides at your house, tried to dis
pose of these letters to the Philadelphia
Press and the Philadelphia Record?" Mul
hall was asked.
"ItB a vicious He," ho shouted.
Mulhall denied that ho oyer pffered the
correspondence to two magazinos or to
the New York Times. Ho denfed having
made a Statement to Richard Harrv. mhn
avsJUMpresentlng him, that the Manufact
urer a association wouiu pay J150.000 for
the documents If they could not be dis
posed of to papers or magazines.
Mulhall denied that he agreed Barry
would sell tho letters to tho New York
World for UO.O00 and that ho would be
content with 35,000; but latter he testi
fied that at Barry's suggestion he did
agree. Ho never paid Barry.
"Have you published all letters between
you and the association?" asked Senator
"I believe I have not."
Pnyntents to Messentrers.
Mulhall swore thai payment of monthly
sums to J. II. McMlchael, one time chief
puge of the house: Harry Parker, mes
benger to the ways and means commit
tee, and the speaker's doorkeeper, were
made with the knowledge and consent of
J. H. Emery, counsel for the manufactur
ers. He testified that the payments be
gan In 1909 and ran through most of 1910
and 1311. Questions were designed to
show that Emery was on the Pacific coast
and In Europe many months in those
years. Mulhall contended that when
Emery was away tho three were not paid
and tho sums were made up later.
Mulhall swore that Samuel Gompers,
president of the American Federation of
Iabor and Jackson II. Ralston, attorney
for that organization, tried to secure the
letters he laid before the senate commit
tee more than a year ago. The commit
tee read a letter from Mulhall to John
Kirby, Jr., president of tho manufactur
ers, July 22, 1912, In which ho spoke of an
Interview with Gompers In Washington
and a telephone conversation with Ral
ston In Rnltlmore. He wrote Klrby that
he would "never sell out" to enemies of
tho association. Ralston, he swore, tried
hard to get the papers, but he refused to
elvo them up.
Mulhall previously testified that he of
fercd to give the papers to Gompers who
declined to take them.
Senator Nelson asked about a published
statement that Mulhall had spent 3200,
000 bribing voters and In lobby work. Mul
hall could not tell now Just how much he
had spent and thought $100,000 must he
a mistake. The lawyers asked If the to
tal of his expenditures was not about
000, but Mulhall said he did not know If
that amount was right.
The lawyers put In a letter Mulhall
wrote General Manager Bird, September
17, 1912, Raying Samuel Gompers, John
Mitchell and Frank Morrison, of the
American Federation of Labor, had got
ten a promise from President Wilson,
then governor of New Jersey, to support
Hughes for senator.
John G. Shreve, secretary to Congress
man Gardner, was his source of Informa
tion, bo said.

FLAYS TARIFF BILL
Louisiana Senator Characterizes
Party's Action as "Pity" and
NOT TRAITOR TO HIS PARTY
Loyalty to State Forbids His
for the Measure
GR0NNA SPEAKS FOR FARMERS
North Dnkolan Attncka Proposed
Ilevnyie Lnvr front Standpoint
of Airrloultnrnl In
WASHINGTON, July 31. Democrats of
the senate who stand pledged to vote
for tho Underwood-Simmons tariff bill
listened today to one of their number
who has repudiated tho administration
meusuro because of tho fro sugar plank.
Senator Thornton ot Louisiana vehe
mently pictured tho ruin that free sugar
would bring to his state, denounced tho
policy of free sugar as undemocratic, and
characterized his party's action as a.
"pity" and a "shame."
"I am not false to tho principles of tho
democratic party," sold the Louisiana
senator, "In refusing to follow It along
tho strange and devious pathway it Is
now pursuing with regard to tho tariff
cn sugar. I am true to those principles
and It Is the democratic party Itself that
Is seeking to depart from them. I am
no traitor to tho democratic party, bo
cause loyalty to my state forbids me to
vote fo rthls bill In Its present form."
This first attack from within tho party
ranks was followed by another from tho
republican side, when Senator Gronna of
North Dakota Hssalled the measure from
the standpoint of the farmers.
Nearly tho entire time for discussion
of the bill was taken up with these ad
dresses and little progress was made In
consideration of the schedules. The
double attack did not sway the democrats
from their determination not to take up
time In general debate. The democratic
leaders still assert that they will con
tent themselves with brief opposition to
umendmcnts as they nro offered from
day to d&.y. Later Senator Bhtvcly of
Indiana plans to answer the arguments
und criticisms ot the minority.
Appeals j of tlie manufacturers for an
understanding between tho senate and
tho house as to the date when tho rates
on woolen manufactures aro to be made
effective have failed to bear fruit,

Characterizing the democratic tariff
bill as neither fish, fpwl no.r herring-, "
a measure not -framed on scientific prin
ciples' ot either' free trade or protect Ton,"
and declaring It will not benefit the con
sumer because it will Injure If not de
stroy the producer, Senator Gronna, pro
gressive republican ot North Dakota, at
tacked tho measure.
"The great Industry of agriculture," ho
said, "Is again tho subject of an unjust
onslaught and discrimination. I call your
attention to the fact that In my state
alone, where In 1912 we raised mora than
KS.OCO.OCO bushels of wheat, with short
crops in foreign countries, under tho
provisions of the bill our farmers would
lose In a single year more than $15,000,000."
Senator Gronna declared that in dls
criminating against tho farmer tho demo
crats found themselves In the position ot
having two sets of reasons. Inconsistent
with each other, "using tho ono or tho
other as the occasion might seem to de
mand, and meanwhile they are attempt
ing to use both at tho same time. If the
removal of the tariff on farm products
Is going to give the consumer chnnper
foods," he declared, "then the tarlif on
those products gives tho producer a bet
ter market and the producer is benoflted
"On the other hand If, as should bo con
tended, tho tariff on farm products Is of
no benefit to the producer ot them. It
can only be because the tariff does not
Increase the price of those products; and
If It does not Increase the price then
where Is there any excuse for statin?
that removal of the tariff Is going t-)
benefit the consumer and glvs him
Discussing the countervailing duty pro
vision. In the bill on wheat and flour, Sen
ator Gronna said it Is of no value Insofar
as the farmer Is concerned.
Senator Simmons, chairman of tho
finance committee, anounced when re
publican senators read petitions asking
that somethnla be dons, that he would
confer with Majority Leader Underwood
ot the house, with a view to bringing
about an agreement. This he has done.
the result being that the house Intends
to stand firmly behind tho provision that
freo raw wool and the rates on woolens
shall become operative Immediately upon
the passages of the bill.
The senate bill proposed that raw wool
shall be free on December 1, 1913, and tlmt
the reduced rates on woolens shall be
come operative January 1, 19H.
