Republicans Begin Fight for
Open Hearings on .Every
Schedule Involved.
Smith of Mlchdgan Declare nwt
Sugar Industry Will B AYiped
Out Debate Warm When
Subject Is Broached.
WASHTNGTOX. May 9. Republicans
f the Senate leaped eagerly Into their
ItBht apalnst the t'nderwood tariff bill
when it was brought over from the
House today and precipitated an Issue
by attempting to override the decision
of the Democrat to consider the meas
ure without public hearings.
Forerunning the assault that the Re
publicans propose to wage against the
schedules from aetata to sine. Senator
Penrose sought to have the bill re
ferred to the finance committee -with
' Instructions for open hearings after
Senator Simmons, chairman of the com
mittee, had moved for reference with
out Instructions. Action on this phase
was pending when the. Senate ad
journed until Tuesday. everal Repub
lican leaders having-' predicted that
they would win thir contention and
that public hearWfta would be forced

Speakfrig of the Penrose amendment,
Brnatosmith. of Michigan, in a vigor-
out rpeal for consideration of the
bill ill the open instead of "in the dark
nes' and gloom" of the commlttee
rojm. assailed the tariff bill. He de
clared that It would result In a re
petition of "dark days" that followed
the Wilson bill: that the sugar lndua
trv would be ruined; that other Indus
tries would suffer and that alrewly
business was falling, off rapidly
throughout the country.
Charging that free sugar In three
Tears would give the American Sugar
Refining Company and the Federal
Sugar Refining Company an option
which they would foreclose on the
property of the beet sugar interests,
their only domestic rivals. Senator
Smith declared that the beet sugar In
dustry, in which 15.000 persons in
Michigan alone""were Interested, would
be wiped out.
Sagar Alllaare Iatlmated.
"If the American Sugar Refining Com
fany and the Federal Sugar Refining
Companv," said Senator imlth, "have
made an alliance with the Democratia
party It Is an unholy alliance. Men
v ho have ritt shirked In committing
crimes to Increase the volume of their
business and who are now responding
to the will ef the law, make poor al
lies for any political party."
The debate warmed up immediately.
Senator Thomas read an article from
a Troy. X. Y.. newspaper, in which an
employe of a shirt company declared
that concern had threatened to reduce
wages and in other ways had attempt
ed to coerce its workers to use their
Influence against the Underwood bill.
"Speaking for myself." said Senator
Thomas, "I want to say here and now
t!iat tactics of this sort will produce
any but desired results. I believe that
an Industry which resorts to this line
of conduct In order that its employes
may be coerced ahould meet the result
of having placed on the free list every
article that enters into Its line of busi
ness. Employer Rights Defeaded.
-I think It little less than brazen
effrontery." said Senator Smith, ans
wering Mr. Thomas, "for the Senator
from Colorado to make these state
ments and to say that manufacturers
shall not be allowed to complain about
the burdens put upon them by this bill.
If you think by your threats you can
force silence on the part of the em
ployers of labor, you are making a
While Senator Smith kept the floor.
Senators Reed. James, Smoot. Works,
Thomas and Hitchcock entered into an
argument that turned away from sugar
to the manufacture of furniture and
then back again to sugar.
Senator James said he would prefer
to have the sugar "monopoly" bought
hy money from the Treasury of the
I'nited States than to give It permis
sion to continue "to rob the people."
Senator Thomas got Into an argu
ment again by declaring that Assyrians.
Japanese. Chinese and Mexican peons
and other foreigners were employed In
the Western beet fields and that the
usual wage paid was about 20 cents a
day. Senator Smoot denied this.
Senator Hitchcock wanted to know
whv the furniture manufacturers of
Michigan were afraid of the proposed
tariff on their products and Senator
Smith replied that they feared com

with cheaper labor.

ington. May 9. Representative Bryan,
of Washington. Bull Moose, was the
e.nly Representative in Congress from
the" Pacific Northwest to vote for the
parsage of the Underwood tariff bill.
The solid delegations from Oregot
and Idaho voted against the bill, as

Washington. Prior to casting his vote
Bryan notified the House of his inten

This brought from Representative
Fordney a reply to the effect that
Bryan was like his predecessor. War

talked himself . Into Congress and out
of It, and he predicted that Bryan wa

Kern Attacks Hatfield.
Mr. Kern and Senators Chilton and
Goff. of West Virginia, spoke on the
resolution. Senator Chilton declared
that in view of the publicity given the
proposal to Investigate, he would not
oppose its passage, but later would
move to amend it. Senator Goff op
posed its adoption in vigorous fashion.
Senator Kern made a short speech in
which he attacked Governor Hatfield,
of West Virginia, in a sarcastic vein.
He read Into the record a published
Interview with the Governor in which
that official was quoted as declaring
that Mr. Kern was "lying" when he
made certain published statements con
cerning the strike. The Senator
charged that West Virginia's strike
district was under martial law and
that men were tried . and convicted
there under a sweeping order of the
Governor by a commission of militia
officers and not In the courts.
"We have the spectacle," he added,
"of the Governor of a great state pro

Senator Goff claimed that the Senate
had no evidence before it on which to
base a resolution of Injury. He admit
ted that conditions In the strike region
had been deplorable and that martial
law had been resorted to, but said that
West Virginia was not the first state
to suffer from strikes and to make use
of martial law.
