WASHINGTON". Aug. 6. Senator Lip
Pitt, of Rhode Island, aroused Demo
cratic leaders of the Senate to spirited
teplies today when, discussing the cot
ton schedule, he charged that It dis
criminated asainst New England in
favor o the South, and that it was pre
Senator Hoke Smith, of Georgia, ve
hemently denied the charge of sec
tionalism. He called attention to the
fact that the sub-committee which con
sidered the cotton schedule was com
posed of Senator Johnson, of Maine
Senator Hughes, of New Jersey, and
Senator Stone, of Missouri, referring
to Senator Lippltt as a cotton manu
facturer, remarked that the time had
passed when representatives of the "in
teresrs" could write the tariff laws.
"Before the distinguished Senator
from Rhode Island graced this body
with his official presence, said Sen
ator Stone, "he was before the com
mittee of House and Senate represent
ing this very industry. It is not to the
credit of our legislation of the past
that the representatives of the cotton,
wool, steel and other interests were
permitted by the committees of Con
gress actually to prepare the tariff
New Era Predicted.
"We are entering on a different era.
We desire as far as possible to sub
serve the well-being of the manufac
turer, but the fact must be recognized
that we have gone beyond the period
when the interests can prepare the
schedules. Because of it the American
people at the last election entered their

that line, superstitious and contemp
tuous, will have no effect in deterring
us or in changing the fixed purpose to
make a tariff in the interest of the
Senator Weeks, of Massachusetts,
asked Senator Stone to name some of
the monopolies he referred to.
"Perhaps," Senator Stone replied, "the
Senator would like me to mention the
steel Industry, the wool industry and
the cotton mills of New England, whose
stocks have sold at 200 or 200 per cent
because of the enormous profits under
the operation of these outrageous tar
iffs. Dntjr on Rifles Retained.
"There is no monopoly In the cotton
Industry, the Senator knows," said Mr.
"It not monopoly, exploitation," Sen
ator Williams, of Mississippi, suggested.
Further progress in consideration of
the bill was made today, the metal
schedule being practically completed.
The first vote of the day came on
breech-loading rifles In an amendment
by Senator Smoot to reduce the duty
from 35 per cent to 25 per cent, the
present rate. The amendment was lost,

CINCINNATI. Aug. 6. Manager J. W.
Kberhardt, of the Lagoon Motordrome,
where ten persons met death as a re
sult of a motorcycle accident last week,
was held to the grand jury on a charge
of involuntary manslaughter, following
a preliminary hearing in Covington,
The court decided that there was
not evidence enough to warrant the
binding over of J. H. Rush, of Cleve
land, representative of the Motorcycle
League, and Arthur Wilbur, manager
cf the Lagoon, for whom warrants
charging them with Involuntary man
slaughter also had been Issued, and
those two were dismissed.

The editorial says it will be difficult
to refuse Secretary of State Bryan's
request for such re-consideration unless
the reasons for the refusal to partici

Impossible a modification of the Gov
ernment's attitude might provoke cor
responding modifications in the attitude
of British manufacturers and traders.
Contending the effort is well worth
while in order to preserve and promote
good feeling, the Post says:
"This country in its relations with
America has swallowed so many camels
that it seems out of point to strain so
heavily at a gnat."
The Daily Chronicle in an editorial
likewise urges the government to
recognize the San Francisco exposition.
The Daily Mail, in an editorial, says
it thinks Foreign Secretary Grey's rea
sons for Great Britain's non-participation
eminently practical. "It is useless
to show our goods to an American
customer," the editorial continues,
"when an enormous tariff wall has
been erected for the sole purpose of
preventing him from buying them."
