FOR TREATY DELAY
DEMOCRATS PRAISED BY BROWN
FOR SUPPORTING TAFT
PRESIDENT DEFENDED BY SPEAKER
Reciprocity Called Beginning of End
of High Tariff Dutlss "Stubborn
' and Loquacious Senate"
WASHINGTON. July 19. Vlgoroua
support of the Canadian reciprocity
agreement by Senators Brown, of Ne
braska; Stone, of Missouri, and Works.
of California, and a speech against the
measure by Senator Ken yon of Iowa,
made up today'a debate on the meas
ure In the Senate. ,
Brown criticised his Insurgent col
leagues and praised the Democrats fr.
"having the moral courage and pa
triotism to support and sustain a Re
publican President," characterized a
speech today of Senator Brown In fa
vor of the reciprocity measure.
"I want to express my grief, my pro
found grief," Senator Brown declared,
"because the bill does not have the
support of some of my friends In thU
body whom I know at heart are In
favor of lower duties. ' I do not com
plain of them. I do not charge them
with Insincerity, because I know them
to be sincere. But simply cannot un
"It Is beyond my comprehension to
appreciate how In one session of
Congress I could vote for lower duties,
in the next session favor a revision of
the tariff, a schedule at a time, and at
a third session be against the proposi
tion, which, while it Is not a revision
of a single schedule, Is a revision of
a few schedules, not with all the coun
tries of the world, but with one coun
try; a plan that I believe marks the
beginning of the end of extortionate
tariff dutiea In this- nintry."
The speaker declared that It as not
President Taft. "but a stubborn and K
quacloua Senate," that waa responsibi
for the extra session. He defended
the President from chargea that he
waa taking too much part In legisla
tion.' : ., ' - ---
