Congressman for Third Nebraska
District is Against Measure to
Oppose Sale of Arms.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 2.-(FpeclaI Tele
gram.) Congressman Dan Stephens of
Fremont missed the hour he expected to
address the house in opposition to a joint
resolution pending before It proposing an
embargo on arms and ammunition des
tined for the belligerents now at wsr In
Europe by twenty-four hours. Mr. Steph
ens had expected to speak yesterday, but
when he reached the house he found th
order of business called for "unanimous
consent day," and accordingly tie could
not command the attention of the body
of which he Is a member until after 3
o'clock today, when the navy bill held
the right-of-way.
Having been given ten minutes with
"leave to print the rest of the speech."
Mr. Stephens took occasion to state that
he waa a full-blooded German by descent
on his own account, and that on the ac
count of his wife there were several
first cousins, natives cf Germany by
naturalised parents who are now fighting
In the kaiser's army, If they have not
already given their lives for their coun
Will Not Favor It.
It was Mr. Stephens' contention that
if It were wrong to sell arms to bellig
erent nations now It was wrong to sell
arms and ammunition to them in times
ot peace, when they were preparing; for
war, and he had no psrt in tho resolu
tion that would stop the United Btstes
from selling arms to belligerents while
the same people who ar now agitating
the question are aiding and abetting
their own nation In maintaining a rea
sonable army and navy "against the day
we may want to begin the slaughter of
the Innocents on our own account."
Mr. Btephens stated that he had re
ceived many letters from correspondents
In his district urging htm to support the
Joint resolution prohibiting the shipment
ot arms or ammunition to belligerent na
tions from the United States, but the
more he had examined the question the
more he Was convinced that It would be
the height of folly to pass such a resolu
tion and he would not stultify himself
by supporting It.
Kfclplag( Bill In Bad.
Tere seems to be no hope for the ad
ministration's shipping bill. If the .dem
ocratic caucus accepts the amendments
proposed by BenatorNorrls and supported
by Senators Kenyon, Polndexter and La
Follette, then, according to one of the
democratic leaders, there .will be enough
democratic defections to defeat the
measure. In other words, th difficulty
for the bll! rests In Its compromises.
Senator Hitchcock, who will go envn
into history as one of the seven demo
crats senators standing against the ad
ministration's pet measure to create a
merchant matins by the purchase of In
terned vessels of ft belligerent, wanta his
bill to prohibit the salo ot arms and
ammunition to belligerents made a part
of the measure. He also Insists, but not
as "powerfully," that there should be
provision made that vessels be lesaed to
private parties on public bidding, subject
to government regulations as to routes
