WXSHINQTON, 3n. R.-Senator Hoot
led tba republican attack on the admin
istration ship In the senate today with
m denunciation of the democratic caucus
which made the bill a party measure; of
the parliamentary 'tactics by which the
democrats have so far' forced the rcpul
'llcan to do all the debating, and finally
with a denunciation of the bill Itself.
The attitude of the democrats he char
acterised as a "conspiracy of silence,"
to put through the bill by pressure of
"physical weakness." For ten days, ha
said, the minority has been compelled to
. faoa the prospect of eight- hours' con
tinuous talking without a word of dis
cussion from the majority side and with,
out more than half a dosen democratic
members In the chamber.
Measnre New Departar. '
It does not seem to me that this bill,
which would put the government Into
the business of foreign shipping, Is re
oelving the kind of llscusslon It should
have," ha said. "It la Important hot
merely because It Involves expenditure
at s time -yhen we have been forced to
maka up a deficit, but also because It
embarks the government on a new de
partura based on a reversal of principle
of government long maintained. No such
change In -policy was ' contemplated by
the people when they put the present ad
ministration In power.- . . , !
'"The fact that this measure cannot
have. that ..kind of discussion which It
demands at this short session of con
gress, "j Continued Senator Root, "shows
that It ought not to pass at this session.
Kraaght with Danarr. ,
"X have been present in legislative bod
ies," he said, "when no voice was .clear
enough, no courage high enough to break
away from the custom which accepted
and registered the , direction of a. chief
executive. Let us "not be too confident
that we are proof against that process. .
"We . abandon today the performance
of our (unction of discussing this meas
ure among ourselves as to enlighten the
people concerning It, and we have taken
one step further than ever before In the
process that makes us a registering body
--rather than a legislative body. , We have
taken, a step fraught with dangers-and
lawu resuns w a representative govern-
ment. We can Justify our existence as

on tho courage and persistency of a mi
nority. They depend also' on the Inde
pendence of thought and' action of all
members of a legislative body. If we
are but to register and amothor our oWn ;
j .u,i.ivu no i n luiiij iuuvms our pare
to a process more fatal' to our'country
than any legislation that we can devise."
Usdos Declaration Interpreted.
Senator Root discussed the declaration
of London and read from, instructions
to German naval commanders at the out
break of the war, the statement that
ships of the enemy transferred to neutral
flag were to be regarded as enemy's
ships unless the commander of the Ger
man vessel stopping them was convinced
that , the transfer would have occurred
even If the war had - not broken out
The interpretation of the rule was very i
pialn. Senator Root said.
"The ordinary trade. In ships wsa not
to be prevented, he said, "but none of
these great powers will , permit " the
citlsena of the enemy to rob them of
their trade by the transfer of ships they
are entitled to Capture on the high seas
to a neutral flag." ,
Senator Root pointed out that' although
American delegates had contended ' to
have their view on . transfers of -ships
incorporated in the London conference
declaration; that was no( done and the
United States agreed to the final report
"There is the law of Kurope," said the
senator, "and against that we. wllj have

varlnads of outs intended or export ship

This action was announced today by

warning to grain shippers and dealers
that adulterations of grain will no longer
be tolerated and that "the prevalence of
the custom in the past will not affect

profits due to the fact that the grains
are sold by weight , .
