ALDRICH OPENS CROSS-FIRE
' ": ' i
i Rue-l ions Bailey About Exorbitant
Profits Texan Proposes Exclu
sion of Cheap Labor,
. Scores Expatriates.
WASHINGTON, April aiDenounclng
tne principle of a protective tariff as un
fair In taking monejr from one man to
Blve It to another In order to encourage
litm In the pursuit of an otherwise un-
ousiness, Bailey of Texas de
livered In the Senate today a set speech
n the Democratic side In opposition to
the pending tariff bill. After he had pro
ceeded without Interruption for more than
on hour, several Senators engaged In col
loquies with him.
Referring to Bailey's statement that the
flutlea of the pending bill might be
lowered S3 1-8 per cent, Aldrlch asked
whether ho supposed the profits of Ameri
can Industries equaled that amount.
Steel Trust Profit Enormous.
Bailey replied that In the case of the
TTnlted States Steel Corporation he be
lieved they had and cited the Increased
capitalization of that organization as an
evidence of enormous profit. He Insisted
that such a lowering of the rate of duty
would not seriously affect Importations,
because he believed American manufac
tures would be stimulated by the added
foreign competition and would continue
to supply the markets.
Bailey discussed his amendment provld
1 Ing for an Income tax. which was criti
cised by Aldrlch as tending to reduce the
protection for American labor If It should
result In a proportionate decrease of
Bailey favored restriction of immigra
tion as a protection to American labor.
Aldrlch retorted that while Bailey was
ready to keep the foreign laborer from
rur shores; he was not averse to allowing
the product of this cheap labor to come
Into competition with the product of
Bailey will resume tomorrow, when lie
Jvill devote his attention to the purely
legal aspects of an income tax law.
( How Tarirr Affects Wages.
Smith of Michigan engaged In a collo
huy with the Texas Senator concerning
the difference of wages and the manner
of life of the American and European
wage-earner. Bailey insisted that, tak
ing In view the superior product of the
American laborer, he was no better paid
than was the labor of Germany. The
difference of life, he said, was radical
because those who had not engaged in
protected Industries in this country
showed the same improved manner of
living compared with Europeans as did
the two and a half millions working in
protected industries. He insisted that
the American manufacturer did not pay
Jhigher wages because he sells his goods
for a higher price, but because of the In
fluence of competition and of labor or
ganizations. Bailey said one of the most prosperous
periods In the history pf the United
States resulted from a low tariff, while
Smith declared that one of the most dis
astrous periods in the business of the
country resulted from a low tariff, re
ferring to the Wilson tariff act.
Aldrlch and Income Tax.
Bailey also became involved in a dis
cussion with Aldrlch with regard to the
Jatter's utterances in the Senate In 1894
that the income tax was supported by
the Socialist, Populist and Democratic
parties. Bailey said that Mr. Taft now
favored an income tax. and asked Ald
rlch if he considered the President a So
cialist. PorUllst Or rfmnnfot
replied that his statement was true at
mn iime it was made.
Bailey Insisted the rates of the pend
ing bill could be reduced 33 1-3 per
cent without greatly Increasing the
bulk of importations, although. In his
opinion, the decrease would diminish to
the extent of the reduction the price
of manufactured articles to the Ameri
Huge Profits Under Tariff.
Does the Senator think that the
lAmerican manufacturer makes a profit
of S3 1-3 per cent?" Inquired Aldrlch.
Bailey suggested that the United
Ftates Steel Corporation, with a capi
tal of 1350,000,000. had Increased its
capitalization to $1,000,000,000. and
makes about 7 per cent on the larger
"ObvlOUSlV." Vl Nd t ,1 "ho C 1
Joratlon could reduce Its profits 33 1-3
per rent and still mnVs mm-o v.. .
legitimate profit on a fair valuation of
Aldrlch suggested that the United
Flutes Steel Corporation produces only
from 45 to B0 per cent of the steel out
put, and asked whether the Senator
from Texas believed the other corpora
tions could make profit If the prices
wre reaucea 33 t-3 per cent.
"If I am permitted to judge by th
rise and equipment of their automo
Mies and the size and equipment of
meir yacnis ana ty otner extravagan
ces they flaunt In the faces of thi
American consumers, I say, yes," re
"Does the Senator think the average

Income Tax Most Just.
nauey explained that a 33 1-3 per
Cent reduction In th t,. j.....
would not be equivalent to a 33 1-3 per
cent reduction in profit. Again taking
up the subject of Income taxes. Bailey
said that no "system of taxation ever
devised had been so Just, so equal and
u a an income tax.
"How did the Senator arrive at th
income or 15000 as the proper one to
tax7- asked Aldrich. "instead of J4000
or S3000. or isoon'"
Bailey replied that he had fixed that
