Four Amendments to Fordney
Bill Adopted.
Proposed Legislations Vigorously
Assailed by Vnderwood, Demo
cralic Leader, and. Others.
senate got down to business with the
Tordney emergency tariff bill today
and before the session, which convened
at 11 o'clock, ended four amendments
had been adopted. Votes on the
amendments showed supporters of the
bill to have a majority ranging from
10 to 12.
As the situation stood tonight It
appeared that the bill would be under
consideration until a final vote is
reached. Senator Penrose, republican,
of Pennsylvania. In charge of the bill,
declared that it had good prospects
of passage next week.
I'nder the programme the early part
of the sessions will probably be de
voted to consideration of appropri
ation bills, but later the tariff meas
ure will be debated, ss It was today.
' to the exclusion of all else.
The committee amendment to estab
lish an import duty of-40 cents a
bushel on wheat was twice adopted
today. It was first taken up with
enly nine senators in the chamber and
accepted without a dissenting voice.
Then Senator Harrison, democrat,
Mississippi, one of the bitterest op
ponents of the measure, discovered
what had happened and forced a call
for a quorum.
Hire Exemption Adopted.
After the quorum call and an hour
of desultory debate. Senator McCum
ber, republican. North Dakota, asked
for reconsideration of the wheat
amendment and it was again accepted.
33 to 28. An amendment exempting
fiom duty rice to be used in the
manufacture of canned goods like
wise was adopted.
The committee amendments fixing
duties of 2 cents a pound on fresh and
frozen meats and 25 per cent ad
valorem on prepared or preserved
meats, and exempting from import
duties all livestock imported exclu
sively for breeding purposes also was
Consideration of the duty on meats
brought from Senator Underwood cf
Alabama, democratic leader, an at
tack on what he described as the
iniquities of the proposed legislation.
He assaulted the republican position,
inquiring whether republican sena
tors had "absolutely forgotten that
the government had need for rev
enue" and whether the present bill
could be accepted as an indication of
their intention to build a tariff wall
about the country during the extra
session. '
Connumrra Held Victims.
The Fordney bill. Mr. Underwood
asserted, could be construed as none
other than a consumption tax. He
accused suppurters of the bill of be
ing willing to legislate money from
the consumers into the pockets of
speculators and quoted figures from
a summary of tariff Information,
compiled by the republican house
ways and means committee, to show
that imports so much complained of
"exist only in the air."
The programme of the leaders to
attempt the fixing of a date for a
vote went into the diseard temporari
ly, with the arrival of Senator Will
iams, democrat. Mississippi, who re
newed his declaration that he would
cot be bound by any private agree
ments. The house ways and means commit
tee concluded hearings on he silk
schedule in its consideration of a re
vision of the permanent tariff. It
plans tomorrow to hear discussions
of tariff rates on paper and books.

Dr. Ernest Scholz, minister of eco

declared wpuld be the obvious effects
of the reparations proposals formu

were tantamount to the financial

they would result In reductions in

explain the negotiations at the recent
reparations conference in Paris. The
premier asserted that the decisions
reached at the conference were the
best terms obtainable for France
from Germany under present condi

decisions as a whole. It was decided
that all the deputies who wished to
be heard should speak before a vote

Points responded to by the attorney-general
in the attack made in
behalf of Miss Pickford are:
First That the defendant was not
properly summoned into the Nevada
court because she was not personally
served within the state of Nevada.
Second That disregarding the first
objection the constructive service was
defective In that the affidavit of the
attorney-general for such service was

Third That the law authorized a
dcree of divorce in cases in which

such a decree it is good. and. there Is

Fourth That the state of Nevada

It was noted at the city health of

that no certificate of the "triplets"

could be found. The Inspector was

practicable programme, let him come
to the front."
Previously Andre Tardieu. ex-high
commissioner to the United States,
had continued the criticism of the
government on the reparations agree
ment begun yesterday. His argu
ment amounted to criticism of the
allied agreement. All the arguments,
he said, tended to show that France
was in too greats-hurry and should
have waited a few weeks to consult
ihe new American administration.
M. Briand spoke for an hour and 45
minutes, replying to M. Tardieu and
comparing the work accomplished by
the peace conference of which M.
Tardieu was a member bf the French
delegation. It was working under
better conditions and. the premier
said, failed to obtain better results.
"The Versailles treaty is complete,"
exclaimed the premier. "There is
nothing lacking in it only it is not
The Versailles treaty. In order to
be effective, M. Briand continued,
must rely upon the work of the repa
rations commission.
"It is no secret," the premier as
serted, "that the reparations commis
sion of which France is only one
fifth, had been unable to agree as to
the amount to be fixed as indemnity
and the manner in which it should be
paid. Therefore, the premiers had to
take a hand In the matter."
In a tone of sadness M. Briand said
he realized that he had been unable
toobtain as much for France as was
her due owing to her great sacrifices
in the war. but that at any rate he
had succeeded in bringing the situ
ation out of the chaos, uncertainty
and uneasiness which had obtained
Eince the signing of the Versailles
"We won t get as much as we de
serve, but at least we know what we
are going to get," declared the pre
mier. Concerning M. Tardieu's argument
that the German debt should be "mob
ilized" and discounted, M. Briand said:
"If there were the remotest possi
bility of discounting this debt of ob
ligation which is impossible owing
to the' troubled condition of the
world's money market we should re
fuse to do so, as we would lose too
much on exchange. We are not pre
pared to pay from 12 to 14 per cent
"We will equalize our budgets for
the next ten years by internal loans
and by refraining from all possible
t.egotiations for foreign loans. There
ate between 12,000,000,000 and 15,000,
000.000 francs of assets in France on
which internal loans can be floated.
We intend to use these until the time
comes when payments from Germany
increase according to the schedule
adopted at the Paris conference."
The premier said that several times
during the recent conference there
was a- possibility of the meeting
breaking up without an agreement
having been reached, which would i
have been a great trump in Germany's
'But, he declared, now the allies
all are agreed and If tomorrow Ger
many fails to fulfill her obligations,
the French government Is ready and
will not fail to apply the penalties
which were decided upon in full ac
cord with our allies."
M. Briand said he dm not bring to
the chamber an ironclad contract
which parliament must accept and
that he did not destre to put the
chamber in the presence of an ac
complished fact. The situation, he
declared, was this: If the chamber

Anti-Entente Deimfhst ration Is
Staged in Munich.
MUNICH. Feb. 4. Thousands of
persons marched through the streets
of Munich today singing "Deutschland
Lber Alles and carried out a dem
onstration at the hotel where the
members of the entente commission
reside in a protest against the allied
reparations award, which has caused
a storm of resentment in Bavaria.
The procession came after a mass
meeting held by the national social
ist workers' party, at which the Ber
lin government was warned that a
general strike Would be called unless
the demands of the Paris conference
were submitted to a referendum or
summarily rejected.
The speakers bitterly assailed Mat
thias Erzberger, former minister of
finance, declaring that if ever he set
foot on Bavarian soil he would im
mediately be put in jail.
The Bavarian cabinet has urged the
Berlin government to refuse to com
ply with the allied demands, which,
it says, have struck a blow at the
heart of the German people. The
worlynen expect the German federa
tion of 'labor to support them in a
movement for a general strike.
10,000 Miners Reported on Strike
as Protest of Indemnity.
' LONDON. Feb. 4. A dispatch to
the Central News from Berlin today
reported that workers in the mining
districts of Germany were highly In
censed against the reparation terms
imposed upon Germany.
The dispatch added that 10,000 cop
per and silver miners in Mansfield
hail struck as a protest against the
Paris decision. There was great agi
tation in the Ruhr district for the
miners to do the least work possible.
In several mines a six-hour day has
been adopted. In Upper Silesia the
miners refused to work the overtime
ordered by the inter-allied commis
sion, declining to accept the 60 per
cent extra pay allowed them.
Dr. von Kahr, the Bavarian premier,
has been directed by the Bavarian
ministry to proceed to Berlin and
advise the government there that the
allied orders for disarmament, apart
from their reparation's decision, are
not acceptable to Bavaria, according
to a dispatch to the London Times
from Berlin. This means, the dis
patch asserted, that Bavaria refuses
to disarm.
The Bavarian Courrier, the dispatch
added, declared that Bavaria will
have nothing to do with any declara
tion jeopardizing the Einwohnerwehr.
