Smoot Explains Bill
Washington. Anril 24. There was
! 4ii old-fashioned tariif debate today
in the senate. It marked the real be
ginning of the weeks and perhaps
Months of battling over the adminis
tration measure, which the finance
committee reported two weeks ago.
The dicniou was opened by
Senator ' Smoot, republican, Utah,
with a detailed explanation of the
elastic proposals written into the bill
at the mgttesiion of President Hard
ing, and it included an attack on
those proposal by Senator Jones,
democrat. New Mexico, and the
opening of a general assault on the
whole measure by senator King,
democrat, Ltah. ,
. Scores Measure.
Characterizing the measure as
"more iniquitous'' than the I'ayne-
Aldrirh and Dingley measures, Sen
ator King charged that it was a bill
to "increase the price of everything
the people buy" and was framed in
the interest of the "dye trjist. the
steel trust, the chemical trust, tfce
wollen mill trust, some of the cotton
manufacturing trusts, and the mul
titude of great organizations that in
the past have preyed upon the peo
ple and that in the future will con
tinue their policy of exploitation."
Senator King charged that the ad
dress of Senator McCumber of the
finance committee in calling up the
measure last week was "an appeal
to the predatory interests of the
United States to he" more merciful to
the poor consumer," and said that
when the nation was at war and the
very fate of civilization seemed to
be at stake, some of the same vul
tures that dictated schedules in this
bill were robbing the American peo
ple and the American government.
McCumber Denies "Appeal."
Chairman McCumber later denied
that his address was "an appeal."
He said that in discussing conditions
in the world and in this country
he thought the time opportune to
call attention of manufacturers, re
tailers and factory laborers that the
America public could consume only
as much as it could purchase and
that if production was to be in
creased prices would have to be
brought down to within the reach
of the -conrunicrs pocketbook. .
Reading from an announcement of
the Southern Tariff association that
it had laid its appeal for higher rates
than contained m the senate bill, be
fore the "tariff bloc," Senator King
demanded to know what had be
come of the "able senators who con
stitute the finance committee and
who are supposed' to write tariff
"The tariff bloc is. supreme," he
added, "and I suppose the manu
facturers and tariff bloc squeezed the
finance committee as a strfwg man
squeezes clay in his hands, o. sought
lo do so.
In his prepared address explaining
the elastic tariff proposal. Senator
Smoot declared they not only offered
a solution of the particular tariff
problem now before congress, but
also suggested a practical basis for
a continuing scientific adjustment of
the tanft in the future.

Senator From North Dakota
Laiiiuhri New Scheme,
Said to Be Leu Costly
Than House Bill.
$100,000,000 First Year
By GRAFTON S. WILCOX.
Omaha IW wlr.
Washington, April 24. A , brand
new soldier' bonus bill, said to be
much lets costly than the one paed
by the house, was brought forward
as a basis of agreement at a con
ference behind closed doors between
the senate finance committee and
Representatives of world war veter
an' organizations today.
The new measure is the handi
work of Senator McCumber. North
Dakota, chairman of the committee.
Other members of the committee
look upon it with friendly eyes. Thev
have high hopes that it will furnish
the long-sought bridge to span the
gap between congress. and the ad
ministration over the bonus issue.
1 he feature of the new measure
which has won favor particularly
with members of the finance com.
mittee is the fact that it would re
quire an estimated outlay of about
$100,000,000 next year, compared
whh the Treasury department's es
timate that the bouse bill would cost
about $300,000,000 next year.
Would Spread Cost.
The McCumber plan would snread
the cost lightly over a long period
of years and considerably reduce the
strain upon the treasury. The de
tails have not been disclosed.
Hanford MacNider. national com
mander of the American Legion, and
Robert' G. Woodside, commander-in-chief
of the Veterans of Foreign
Wars, were present at today's con
ference. Thev told the committee
at the outset that they favored the
nouse bill. .
Senator Watson. Indiana, who con
ferred with President Harding about
the boims last week, told them point
blank that it would be futile to con
sider the house bill, as the president
certainly would veto it. At this junc
ture the McCumber substitute-was
laid before them. They were ask
ed to consider it carctully and to
report their views to the committee
Disabled Men Ask Aid.
"The American Legion knows that
congress believes this adjustment of
compensation is' a just and valid ob

called opponents, oi this legisation al
ways endeavored to have it appear
that disabled men are not in favor of

committee I desire to insert at this
time in the record, petitions from 15
hospitals, totaling more than 2,000
disabled men, one of which alone has
544 names upon it, all praying for
the immediate passage of this legisla
tion. The originals of these peti
tions were directed to the president
of the United states.
"I cannot conceive that any, mem
ber of this committee believes there
will ever be a congress elected by
the people of American that would
neglect the men who were disabled
through wearing the uniform, no
matter -what the financial condition
of the treasury happens to be in the

London. April 24. A Central New I
dupawh from ticnoa today says:
"It it learned unofficially that the
red. (oviet Runian representa
live) are negotiating a secret treaty
with Hungary, giving mutual sup
port against Roumania and the little
IJar-Le-Diic. France. April 24
(By A. I'.) France will, if neces
,arv. undertake alone to see that the
treaty of Versailles is executed if
the Germans default in their repara
tions payments, Premier Poincare
intimated in a speech before the
general council oi tne ucyiuncui vi
the Mcuse today.
The 31st of May when the Gcr.
mans must either accept the condi
tions laid down by the reparations
commission or default in their pay
ment, is an important date for
France, said the premier. It is
France's duty, he added, "in full in
dependence" to assume the duty of
maintaining the integrity of the
Imprudent to Disarm. '
Referring to the charges of mili
tarism and imperialism made against
France, M. Poincare said.
"The imperialism of France is a
current theme in some countries, in
which we are charged with ulterior
motives of conquest. I do not know
of a single French public man who
has ever dreamed of territorial an
nexation. But who does not under
stand today after the Rapallo ac
cord (the Russo-Gcrman treaty)' the
imprudence there would be-in our
disarming too rapidly." .
"That accord brings out into the
full light the sympathies which had
developed in the darkness between
the bolsheviki and the Germans.
How many persons, wrested from
their confidence of yesterday, will
not now admit that the cabinet was

Genoa, April 24. (By' A. P.) -Japan,
through Viscount Ishii, added
her voice to the discussion of the
famous memorandum of the Russians
in reply to the report of the London
experts, wnicn orew a protest irom
the French delegation when it, wis
circulated last week in Genoa. - t
The Frenchment and others called
attention to the fact that this memor
andum was in exact contradiction to
the note addressed to the allies ' in
which the soviet delegates accepted
the allies' terms for future discussion
of Russia's problems.
' Viscount Ishii said that Japan had
had plenty of experience with soviet
methods during the negotiations be
tween Japan and representatives' of
the Chita government at Dairen. A
majority , of this Chita government,
he declared, was of distinct soviet
coloring, and Japan learned during
the pourparlers at Dairen, which she
recently was compelled to break off,
that care must .be taken in getting
the bolsheviki to say exactly what
they mean, because they are apt to
return tomorrow claiming the con
trary,. : '
