Reciprocal Agreement. ; i :

Democrats Are Arrayed' Against
General. Reciprocity Plan aIt
Faili to Cope In With T'ar-;
BY FRANK H. BU8HIOK
VASHINtlTON. Kobruary 18-Oon-BressmRn
John M. Moore ofTexrs and
other members lately have received -communications
from associations if stock-
men unit Individual cattlemen asking
Itiern to work for a reciprocity" arrange-
ment In iho now tariff.
The cowmen want to enlarge tholr mar-
lint for beef and beef products. On ac-
count or tariffs they have little or no
market abroad for cattle on the hoof
end there in bjt a restricted market for
beef product. The sale . of beef prod-
uct of course principally Is u matter
of interest to the packets. It. Is to get
way from the packers the so-callqd beef
trust that the cattlemen want to net Into
Germany France and other European
countries with shipments or live cattle.
With the foreign markets practically
closed to them and the beef trust . dic-
tating prices In the" home market the
tattle producers say they simply are
'working for the railroads and the pack-
er and are allowed only such a margin
of profit as will suffice to keep them In
the business but not permit them to
share in the profits.
MTTl.K OPTIMISM KVIDENT.
I'pon the question of reciprocity the
cattlemen have small hopes. Tho repub-
lican party has favored reciprocity ever
fince ttlaine's duy. They have put It In
ihcir platforms and they have pawed two
tariff bills authorizing the negotiation of
Mich treaties but the fact remains that
they won t put it Into execution.
M-'Kintey. who believed In letting down
the bars lo the products of those coun-
tries which admitted our export articles
free or at reduced rates negotiated twen-iy-iie
or thirty such trade treaties with
foreign countries tis he was authorised to

1 rent ics went before the senate to be
confirmed as they hail lo be before tak-
ing effect they were all defeated by the
renator; who stand for those Interests
which the foreign articles admitted would
come jmo competition with. The local

legislation was strong enough to do the

reciprocity because it deals in spots in-

he negotiated what Is called a "trade
agreement." Knowing tho difficulty of!
getting 'a reciprocity treaty confirmed
bis arrangement waa a makeshift to ac-
complish tho same purpose without con-
sulting the senate. It consisted of an
order to the cuetom house officials in thia
country to admit thiougli the custom

TEXAS SEEKS CONCESSIONS.
The Texas legislature at its session two
years ago passed a' resolution memorial-
ising congress on the subject. This me-
morial was presented to congress by
Representative Olliesple of Texas. It re-
quested "congress to enact such laws as
will enable the Federal government to
enter into trade arrangements with such
foreign nations as will afford the best
possible markets for live stock and Its
products and farm products of this coun-
try and expressing entire confidence In
the president of the lnlled States rela-
The resolutions went on to ask that the
president be empowered to make such
conresslorj and modifications In the tar-
iff schedp Jft as may te necessary to se-
cure fa. Able trade relations witli for-
eign countries and further "that the law
fixing these schedules may be safely
modified so as to afford a consideration
for making such trade agreements with
foreign nations without any Injury to the
Just rights of the Industries of this eouu-
try which are entitled to protection."
It need not be said that most of the
Texas members of congress were stag-
gered by these sentiments. They are for
enlarging the foreign markets and doing
anything in reason to help any Texas in-
dustry but they are not prepared to
waive the constitution or to leave the
making of the tariff laws entirely to
the president of the United States.
Both Senator Bailey and Senator Cul-
berson are opposed to all reciprocity that
recognizes the principle of protection
and abdicates the power of congress over
the revenue laws of the country. They
point out that the ends which the cattle
men have -In view can be accomplished
In a much more effective way by consti-
tutional methods and that is by revising
the tariff and lowering the high wall of
protection which shuts out the products
of those countries to which we wish to
sell our own surplus products.
Mr. Gillespie thinks the remedy of the
cattle men and others who desire ac-
cess to foreign markets Is to make "a
charge all along the' line for Juster and
lower tariff rates."
AL.DEICH OPPOSES POLIO V.
Tn the meanwhile Senator Aldrlch and
oUier republican senators from the manu-
facturing States are opposed to reciproc-
ity because as said at the outset it
might let in foreign competition on cer-
tain protected Interests. Senator Aldrich
calls It "free trade In spots."
Members of the nte finance com-
mittee definitely have decided against the
no-called "German trade agreements"
made by the Roosevelt administration
with France. Germany and other coun-
tries and are standing behind the ways
and means committee of the house.
Even if the house committee should
allow these agreements u stand a mem-
ber of the senate committee said they
would nver allow tliem to be sanctioned
It Is not doubled however that the
house will dispose of this matter by de-
claring the action of the administration
Whether or not Wall street is to dictate
tho treasury operations under the Taft
administration remains to be seen. One
thing at least is assured according to re-
ports here and that is that no Wall
street man will be considered by Mr.
Taft for the treasury' portfolio.
In the geographical distribution of hi
cabinet he Is said to have allotted the
treasury to Chicago. Party leaders of
National - prominence feel assured the
place will go to Franklin McVeagh. who
served aa attorney general in Garfield's
c.hinef In Chicago Mr. McVeagh lias
always been rated as a democrat though
bo hii consistentlv opposed Bryanism
since that force appeared its a factor in
the paltical horixon. He lias been an
open antagonist of so-called radicalism on
the part of Illinois and Chicago democracy.
Tills attitude 1b held to liave made him
most acceptable to republicanism In so
far as things political are concerned. Ho
Is the head of the large wholesale grocery
house heaiinir his name and for years
has- been Intimately associated with bank-
ing affairs as a director in various finan
cial Institutions. He practically conducted
the Commercial National ban oi i nicago
in tho davs that followed the death of
James H. Eckels who assumed the presi-
dency of tliat institution on his retire-
ment aa the comptroller of the currency.
Another fTDlcago man laiaeo oi in
George M.Fteynolds president of tue t on-
tlnental National bank. Still another is
Edwin A. Still president of the Ameri-
can Trust and Savings bank of Chicago.
Wltl NOT COMMIT HIMSELF.
It Is plated here that even though the
cabinet slate may be fully settled except
for -the. treasury ship Mr. Taft will adhere
to hbj determination to make no further
announcements until "the last moment."
There was a pcrsiBtent statement abroad
that Luke E. Wright will retire as secre-
tary of war and that Brigadier General
Clarence Edwards present chief of the
bureau of Insular affairs may be trans-
ferred to tliat cabinet position.
A formal tender oi me anorney gen
eralship it is said has been made to
George W. Wlckersham of New York
city. There seems to be no doubt also
TL A. Balllnaer of Washington will
be secretary of the Interior; Charles Nagle
of Missouri secretary of commerce and
bhnr and George Yon L.. Meyer oi Mas- .

Associated Press Report.)
WASHINGTON February 18. An ex-
change of words took place In the senate
today between Mr. La Follette who waa
criticising the methods of that body in
the handling of appropriation bills and
Mr. Penrose chairman of the oomnilttee
ou postofnees lind post roads who was
In charge of tho postoftice bill then un-
der discussion. " The colloquy was ren
dered almost tragic by the angry tones
and fiery attitude assumed by the sen-
ator from Penssylvanla as ho denounced
the senator from Wisconsin who stood
quietly at his place on the oilier side of
the chamber staring back at his big an-
1 he day had begun by Mr. La Follette
asking that the postofnee bill be allowed
to go over until tomorrow as It had Just
been reported from the committee and
he had had no time in which lo examine
It. Mr. Penrose had resisted this re-
quest. Later Mr. Ia Follette severely ar-
raigned the senate for permitting legis-
lation to accumulate until ttio last days
of the session when he declared. Impor-
tant bills wen- rushed through with' little
or no time for senators to understand
BII.I-S ON "GREASED TICN."
"It seems to lie a purt of the system
fliat these most Important legislative
acts shall have little consideration." said
Mr. La Follette.
Ho churged that important legislation
was placed in these measures and passed
when it could not pass an a separate
bill. He said also that the salary in-
creases for the Judiciary for the high
executive officers and for the speaSer of
the house had been put through in that
way. and ho insisted tliat committees
unduly delay bills whleh might be report-
ed back earlier so that the senate would
have more opportunity to study and un-
derstand them. He declared that If the
senator from Pennsylvania had attended
the sessions earlier his committee might
have made a report more promptly. He
added that the Important legislation oi
congress was In the hands of seven com-
mittees while over fifty senators were
not assigned to any committee that has
business. He took occasion to say that
he hoped that the tariff bill would be
put through on a "greased run."
Senator Penrose interrupted to ask the
senator from Wisconsin whether "lie was
delivering his regular lecture." adding
that he thought that he had heard it all
NOT BEST TO RIDICULE.
Mr. La Follette replied that oberH-
tions of that sort would not piajmoto the
passage of the nil! and that his remarks
were likely to be still more familiar.
He rhlded the senate with having put off
Interstate commerce legislation for nine
years and had delayed the pure food
laws seventeen years by applying the
sanie methods against which he was citti-
tendlng. Mr. Penrose arose and with evident
anger and glaring across the chamber
at the slight form of the senator from
Wisconsin said in a loud tone:
"I shall not sit silent in my seat when
misstatements are made or claptrap
Htatcsmanship Is attempted here. I
charge that the senator from Wisconsin
has been oo the committee on census
and during his service on that committee
has failed to attend a single meeting of
It. I make another statement without
any fear of contradiction. that be is on
the important committee on Indian af-
fairs which every year considers a preat
appropriation bill and he lias seldom or
never rendered useful service on It."
"And he has been in the senate during
two years." interposed Senator Gallinger
from his seat.
THE CHAMPION ABSENTEE.
"There is no senator" continued Mr.
Penrose "who has a greater record for
abnentoeisni than he. It Ill-becomes him
to criticise these committees. When he
is here it is only to delay the business
of the senate to hold up the transaction
of public business nnd to embarrass those
who under tlielr oath of otllce and hi
the conscientious discharge of their du-
ties endeavor to enact legislation.
"I shall not sit here and I desire to
give such notice to the senator from Wis-
consin and listen to arguments that
might better be made by a vendor of a
patent medicine from the tall of a cart
In a village than from a senator of the
I nited States."
Mr. I.a Follette bad remained standing
while -these remarks were directed to-
"It is of little value." he said "to utter
a contradiction here to much that has
been said. It merely would put the word
of one senator against tliat of another.
1 have not attended the meetings of some
of the committees to which 1 was as-
signed. I have been reasonably diligent
on the committee on Indian affairs "
"It is the unanimous testimony of its
members that you have failed to attend
these meetings." interposed Mr. Penrose
HIS WORD NOT ENOUGH.
"I would have more confidence in the
statement" replied Mr. La Follette "if
senators on that committee made that
declaration themselves. I was absent
from the senate two months of last ses-
sion confined to my home in this city by
illness. 1 was absent during the holidays
a week during this session when I
wan at my home superintending the pub-
lication of a magazine In which 1 am in-
terested and that seemed to be neces-
Then standing in his place' in silence
for a few seconds lie looked intently to-
ward the senator from Pennsylvania and
with great deliberation he continued:
"Against hlfi coarse and vulvar assault
1 put my record since I have been a
member of this body."
Then looking about the chamber Mr.
La Follette continued:
"You can lake no course which will
deter nie from exercising my right upon
this floor to express my views upon leg-
islation and upon tho orderly conduct of
the business of tills body. If you were
better acquainted with me you would
Mr. La Follette look his seat and Mr.
Penrose referred to toe next amendment
in the postoftice bill. Mr. 1a Follette at
the same time addressing Vice President
Falroanks to make an inquiry concern-
ing the amendment.
