- Washington, June 12. (Special Tel
egram.)-Repi;esentative Dan Steph
, ens, who has been receiving letters
tand telegrams" from constituents,
chambers of commerce, commercial
clubs and other business organiza
tions in Nebraska protesting against
an amendment in th naval appro
priation bill preventing the use of the
so-called stop watoh system 'on any
jobs between the starting and com
pletion thereof, took' occasion today
during general debate on the sundry
: civil bill to put, himself )n record in
xegard to ihe agitation now going.
on. He also asked leave, to print his
reply to a telegram of President
George," of the Omaha Chamber of
Commerce, protesting against the
passage of the amendment in question
m which he discusses at Tength the
legislation complained of and certain
utterances, being'made by one Capt.
W. H. Stayton,' a retired naval of
ficer, who is supposed to represent
the Navy league. : i J '
Takes Stayton tq Task. .
. - In the letter the Fremont congress
man states tbatx in One of Captain
. Stayton'S speeches at Norfolk he is
alleged to have said that, both houses
of congrefs passed a bill which makes
it unlawful to isay how many rivets
'they may drive for a day's work and
"the Nebraska members of congress
all voted for it .
Mr. Stephens, as an introduction
; to his exhaustive letter to the Cham
ber of Commence, states that this is
absolutely false, as no such legisla
tion was ever dreamed of, and that
in the second place the house passed
the naval bill without a record vote.
"In addition to this he furnishes testi--mony
showing that there is great
-rivalry among the shipbuilding gangs
of this country and also of Europe,
'even to the extent of wagers being
'made between the various gangs run-
ning as high as $10,000 as to who can
drive the most rivets. y v
' In regard to payment of bonuses
which Captain Stayton insists must L
; be provided tor in the naval appropri
ation bill, the congressman offers find
ings of the wagevcommission which
.abolishes the- payment of bonus upon
the showing made by the employers
themselves, who, he says, were run
ning wages sky high and were bidding
against one another for labor, thereby
. causing 'the utmost confosion among
the shipbuilders of the country. -Mr.
Stephens says -that Captain
Stayton has done more to stroy
confidence in the fidelity Ind courage
of public men through his misrepre
sentations than have all the pro-Ger-inans
in his state put together.
, Insurance companies of a certain
character had their innings'today be
fore the ways and means committee.
EjM. Martin and T. W. Blackburn of
Omaha appearing" for their , particu
lar clients. Mr. Martin was before
the committee as the representative
- of the largest mutual life associations
of the country. He proposed a brand
new theory of taxation as applied to
this class of company ana was listen
td- to with much interest by the com.
nuttee. Mr. Martin's proposal was to
have one certain definite and fixed
basis of taxation instead of the hodge

testimony wholly to the class repre
sented by him. ..
He astonished the members of the
committee by stating that he wanted
has companies to be taxed and pro'
posed as a revenue producing tit-
ment in the revenue bill that the tax
should be fixed on the collections for
expense purposes, rather than on the
reserve or policies. ' .
. - Mrf Martin came as a pleasant
. ' break in the long drawn out contro
versies of automobile manufacturers.
Mr. Blackburn appeared as the rep
- resentative of the American -life con
vention, an organization of 111 legal
reserve life companies in states west
. of New Jersey. He stated that the
companies in the west and south
,; ' were not complaining about taxes.
heavy as,, they are, but wish some
- inequities corrected. He said his
clients were expecting an increase of,
tax, but thought the a per cent first
premium tax was as high as any com
pany" could afford ito pay.

No more for me. Use "Gets-ft." It never
