Believers in Sanctity of Dlngley
Tariff Will Urge Economy Re

on Trust Goods.
ington," Aug; 5. I the will of the Republi
can leaders in Senate .and House prevails.
there 'will be no revision of tl)e tariff atX
tno coming session oi congress, iota is
equivalent to saying there will be no tariff
legislation In the Fifty-ninth Congress,
for no tariff bill can pass In a short session.
Although the time set for the conven
ing of Congress is more than three
months removed, the leaders of the domi
nant party have made It plain that their
views on the tariff question have- under
gone no change since the last Congress
adjourned. Now. as then. Speaker Can
non Is a most pronounced opponent of tar
iff revision. With him stands John Dal-
zell. member of the committee on ru!e3.
and probably the most Influential Repub
lican on the floor of the House. Chair
man Payne of the ways and means com
mittee, and nominally the Republican
floor leader. Is opposed to tariff revision.
but Payne Is not so strong that he cannot
be swayed from his position by the Ad
ministration at a critical time, so his. op
position Is not necessarily vital.
In the Senate. Aldrlch of Rhodo Island.
who has charge of tariff legislation before
that body. Is as vigorously opposed to
tariff revision as Is the Speaker, and he
has the support of many of the strongest
Republicans In the Senate. Allison of
Iowa, probably as Influential as Aldrlch,
Is not In sympathy with a general re-
Vision of the tariff, and on anything but
a plan to revise a few schedules, would
probably line up with the Rhode Island
Roosevelt Can Force Revision.
During the last session the President
conferred with his party leaders la Con
gress on several occasions, and it was
then -demonstrated that'll wouiu do alto
gether out of the question to pass any
tariff leclslatlon before March 4 last.
Without any public announcement, the
matter was dropped and talk of tariff re
vision ceased. But It has been known
all along that the President wants some
of the "sacred" DIngley schedules modi
fied, and It is presumed he will urge a
modification of the tariff at the coming
session. Thero la no reason to believe
that the Republican leaders In Senate and
House will change their attitude, except
under the most Intense pressure: it Is
reasonable to suppose that they will stand
out against any plan which the President
may devise to bring about a modification
In the Dingier rates.
Thcro Is only one way In which tariff
revision can be secured, and that is by
the dnnlicatlon of orce from the White
House. President Roosevelt has demon
strated In the past his power over reluc
tant Senators and Representatives, and
by working with unwilling subjects. Indi
vidually he has made votes tor various
measures In which he was Intensely In
terested. He may, by this means, be able
to bring Into line enough votes to pass
a tariff bill, but In doing so ho will have
to override the leaders In Congress, par
ticularly the leaders In the Senate. Such
a struggle as this will. If It starts, bo a
flght to a finish, with the chances ot sue
cess on the side of the President.
Economy and How to Get It.
Those Republicans who are trying to
ward off tariff revision, when confronted
with the large and growing deficit in tne
Treasury, offer a compromise plan. "Let
there be economy." they say. That is
exactly what they said in the la3t Con
gress, but the economy was not much in
evidence. -"The best way to overcome the
Treasury deficit," say these men, "Is to
hold down our appropriations, cut off
money wherever we can without actually
Injuring the service, and In this way
bring the expenditures down to a figure
within the actual receipts." But that Is
familiar talk: It does not mean much.
All through the last session of Congress
"economy" was the watchword, and great
things were promised, but the only man
who really economized to any recogniz
able extent was Chairman Burton, of the
river and harbor committee. All other
appropriations were about as large as
usual. Burton, however, started, to noid
down river and harbor appropriations.
and he cut oft every filngle project that
lacked merit and held all othera down
to the last notch. But he demonstrated
his ability to do what he started to ac
compUsh. and his success may redound to
his benefit.
In the last Congress James A. Hemen
way, of Indiana, was chairman of the
appropriations committee. He was a good
man. but he lacked the force necessary
to hold down appropriations. He has
since been elected to the Senate, and the
Speaker must choose a new chairman of
the appropriations committee. Unrortu
nately, not a slnglo member of the com
mlttee. 33 It was made up In the las
Congress. Is competent to become Its
chairman. Bingham, of Pennsylvania, the
ranking member. Is In no way quaiuieu
McCIeary. of Minnesota, the next mem
ber. Is most likely to succeed to the chair-
mnnihln If the chairman Is taken from
the old committee: Uttauer, of somewhat
odorous famo (lie of the Army glove con
tracts) Is next In line, but could not be
chosen, nor- could any who follow, him.
But Burton, having given a splendid dem
onstratlon of his ability to guard the
Treasury, may bo made chairman of the
appropriations committee, and. If so,
there Is more apt to be economy In gov
eminent appropriations fhan will be the
case If some other man Is selected.
May Clash on Naval Bill.
But on this subject of economy. Con
gress Is apt to clash, with the President
on one Item, toe navai out. ine x-resi
dent Is still an avowed advocate of
larger Navy; Congress, If It gets an eco
nomlc flt. will Insist upon cutting down
the naval appropriations. Furthermore,
the lessons of the Russo-Japanese war
will become strong weapons in the hands
of Congress, for already many Congress
men have pointed to the sea-fights m the
Orient as a demonstration of the uscless-
ness of battleships against torpedo-boats
and well-manipulated cruisers. It the
President? asks for more battleship?, Con
gress Is very apt to bring up the Japanese
war and offer that as an excuse for refus
ing his requests.
It Is a fact, nevertheless,- that many
Republicans and quite a few Democrats
In the next Congress will 'readily co-operate
with the President In his effort to se
cure a revision of the tariff. Some favor
a reduction of the duty on general princi
ples; some want the duty on certain trust
made articles cut down; others want a
readjustment of the tariff In a manner
to bring in more revenue than Is at pres
ent collected. All these elements will
combine on a bill that will reduce the
duty on steel, for Instance. The steel In
dustry Is no longer an Infant industry;
when It sells abroad cheaper than at
home. It needs no further protection from
the Government, and yet the present
tariff on '.steel Is high enough to keep
foreign steel out of our markets and pro
tect an Industry not In need of protection.
A reduction ot this duty would not only
bring down the price of American steel,
but would permit foreign steel to come
In, and would make this commodity a
contributor to the National Treasury
where today It pays Virtually nothing.
Other similar readjustments will be.
urged. In a manner to permit foreign
goods to enter our markets' when theli
entrance will not Injure American Indus
try, but will tend to lower American
prices. Incidentally, every such reduc
tion will add so much to the National
revenues and tend to reduce the deficit.
Where Money Can Be Saved.
If Congress is really in earnest about
economizing, there are a hundred ways
In which It can be done. Many millions
are now paid the railroads for carrying
the malls that could and should be saved:
the nrlce nald for the railway mall serv
ice Is notoriously excessive. Congress
could cut off aDwoprlatlons amounting to
several millions a year for useless publl
cations, such as doonrtmental documents
and coneresslonal reports. There Is a
fabulous waste In this kind of expendi
ture which mlcrht well be saved. There
Is a doubling ud of work In many de
partments which could under good ad
ministration, be avoided. There are plen-
xv of wavs. and Congress knows of them.
The Question Is. does Congress want to
economize? Time alone will tell.
Latest Scheme of Railroad Senators
to Block Rate Bill.
lngton, Aug. 5. Indications are contln
unity cropping out showing the obvious In
tent of certain Senators to resort to all
manner ofdelay In the hope of preventing
the passage of a railroad rate bill next
Winter. The hearings before the Senate
committee on Interstate commerce last
Spring fill four good-sized volumes. The
report is verbatim and almost ad Inflnl
turn. It will take a man from two weeks
to a month to read and digest this mass
of testimony. Recognizing this fact and
hoping to gain time, some members of the
committee proposed that the testimony be
briefed for the convenience of Senators
and members of Congress. This was
agreed to, and tt was understood that the
brief would be submitted to Congress
when it convened In the Fall.
But the brief Is not prepared; It is not
even under way, and there la no lndlca
tlon that It is to be prepared this Sum
mer. It Is evidently the purpose of the
anti-railroad legislation Senators to post
pone tha preparation of the brief as long
as possible, so that Senators wlH be
obliged to wade through the great mass
of testimony. If this Is done, every Sena
tor opposed to legislating can bring up the
excuse that he has not had time to read
the testimony, and does not want to vote
until he has studied the question thor
This Is one of the things that are not
susceptible of proof, of course, but It Is
aneasy guess that there Is motive In de
laying the preparation or tne Drier. Tne
Senators who will fight the railroad rate
bill are going to have a strenuous Winter,
and they will need every possible excuse
for delay. They know It, and are laying
their plans accordingly.
Stayed in Shoal Water to Be With
Ills Children.
(Special.) R. Molone. yardmaster of the
Southern Pacific freight yards here, met
a tragic fate today while In swimming at
the Plaza del Mar. In plain sight of sev
eral hundred people Malone took a dive
from the pleasure pier which resulted In
in4urles from which he died soon after.
This morning Malone, who was an ex

companled by his son and daughter, for
his regular morning plunge in the surr.
In order to be with the children he re

The first dive was successful, but in a
second attempt Malone took the water
at too straight an angle and striking the
bottom with terrific force, fractured" his
neck. He was rescued by Sam Spauld

wealthy resident of this city, and
although paralyzed, regained, conscious
ness long enough to say a few words. He
was taken to the Cottage Hospital, but
died within an hour.

Jinking Conference.
OYSTER BAY. Aug. 5. Hlstery was
made todav In Oyster Bay. RusslHns. and
Japanese clasped hands and greeted one
another with all outward evidence c cor
diality, and for the first time since na
tions began to have relations one wun
another, an executive of a groat power
received the envoys ot two Demgerent
countries on a mission of peace.
President Roosevelt, on behalf ot tho
United States and Its people, extended
formal greetings to the representative
of Russia and Japan. Introducing tne
plenipotentiaries to one another, and en
tertained them at an elaborate luncheon,
at which they fraternized with one an
other ns friends and not as enemies.
Durinsr the luncheon President Roose
velt proposed a notable toast In which ho
expressed the "earnest hope and prayer.
In the Interest not only of these two great
powers but ot all civilized mankind, that
a Just and a lasting peace may speedlly
be concluded between them."
The occasion was Impressive. It was
attended not by pomp and ceremony, but
by a simplicity and frankness character
istic of the President and the people of
America. Due honor was paid the dis
tinguished guests of the President anil
of the country, and they were receive
with all dignity to which their exalted
rank entitled them.
Scenery Tends to Pence.
yThe dav was Ideal. After tho sun had
burned away the haze of early morning,
the weather was glorious. A brisk breez
Just tipped the waves of Long Island
Sound with silver, tempering at the saran
time the heat of the sun's rays- Tho
handsome -war yacht Mayflower, one ot
the most beautiful vessels of the LMteu
States Navy, on which the formal recep
tion of the Russian and Japanese pleni
potentiaries took place, swung easily at
anchor Just at the entrance of Oyster
Bay from Long Island Sound. A quarter
ot a mile away was the dispatch-boat
Dolphin, the favorlto cruising vessel ot
several Presidents of the United States.
Two miles out In the Sound, the cruller
Galveston was anchored, waiting to con
voy the vessels bearing the envoys to tho
scat of the Washington peace conference
at Portsmouth, N. H.
The Mayflower was under command of
Commander Cameron M. Wlnslow, Presi
dent Roosevelt's naval aide, who was de
tailed, to this duty as an especial mark
of distinction to the peace commission
by the President. Before the arrival ot
the President and the envoys the cabins
of the Mayflower were handsomoly dec
orated with flowers. The luncheon table
In the main saloon was laden with flow
ers. The flowers used principally In the
floral decorations were the gladiolus, a re
cently created variety known as "Amer
ican." It Is a superb purple blossom,
which at first glance gives the observer
the Impression of a rare orchid. No at
tempt was made to decorate the cabins
with flags, care being exercised In every
feature of tho ceremony attendant upon
the reception not In the slightest way to
offend the sensibilities of the guests ot
the occasion.
Avoid Precedence Question.
In order that no questions ot prece
dence should arise. It was determined
that the luncheon should be a buffet
function. In this way was avoided the
necessity of seating the envoys at
table with the President. Every officer
of the Mayflower was attired in special
full-dress uniform; the crew was In
sallprroen's "dress of snowy white."
Rear-Admiral Slgsbee, commander ot
the squadron which brought the re
mains of the first American Admiral.
John Paul Jones, from France to their
final resting place in this country, was
aboard the Mayflower as the guest of
Commander Wlnslow. His baggage had
miscarried and ho was not In uniform.
Major-General Frederick D. Grants
commander of the Department of tne
East, and Roar-Admlral josepn a.
Coghlan, commander of the Brooklyn
navy-yard, respectively the represen
tatives of the Army and the Navy at
the reception, went aboard the May
flower at 10:50 A. M.
President Roosevelt was expected to
board tht Mnyflower at 1 o'clock, but
this morning he changed his plans and.
Indicated his Intention to come aboard
at noon or soon after. In accordance
with this arrangement, a launch from,
the vessel was sent to the J. West
Roosevelt pier for him at 11:30 o'clock.
Perched high up In the rigging ot tho
vessel, one of the Mayflower's Jacklea
kept a pair of marine glasses focused
on the launch, and at noon precisely
he reported o Lieutenant Phelps, tha
executive officer, that the President
was entering tho launch. As the launch,
bearing the President and flying his
pennant at ner fore, passed under tha
stem of the Dolphin, the crew of that
vessel dressed ship and the trumpeters
sounded a fanfare.
President Not in Uniform.
As President Roosevelt stepped on
the gangway to ascend to the dock of
the Mayflower, the first gun ot the
Presidential salute of 21 guns boomed
Its welcome and tho beautiful Presiden
tial pennant of blue and gold was
broken out" at the masthead. The Presi
dent was greeted by Commander Win
slow as he reacned the deck. The baud,
after the sounding of four ruffles beat
on the drum, played "The Star-Span-gled
Banner." The President greeted
cordially General Grant and Rear-Ad-mlrals
Coghlan and Slgsbee, saying to
the last, in response to his apology for
not" having on his uniform:
"It is always a great pleasure. Ad
miral, to meet you at any time and In
any garb."
One after another, the President per
sonally greeted and shook hands wita
officers of the ship. The President was
accompanied by W. Emlen Roosevelt
and Colonel Charles S. Brorawell, his
military aide. He chatted animatedly
with his friends and the officers on
