U FOLLETTE IS
Offends Senate by Offering

WILL HAVE HEAD REDUCED
Ocarin Fortunate That Hoar- Did
Not Live to Criticize Credentials. ,
Butler's Trick to Worry
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. D. C, Dec. 30. That a United
Senator is a bigger man at home than
he is In Washington is demonstrated
in the case of Hon. Robert .M. La Fol
littc, of Wisconsin. His is an extreme
iHBe, because he Is the most conspicu
ous figure in Wisconsin politics, and
comes to the Senate to mingle with the
newest and tendcrest members of that
body. La Follette, who has been boss
among his own people, is made to feel
his Insignificance in the Senate at the
very outset. He is made chairman of
the committee to "investigate the con
dition of the Potomac River water
front," and assigned to u Ncommlttee
room In the sub-basement of the Cap
itol, down among the dynamos, fur
naces and woodpiles. He is, in fact,
as far removed from the Senate cham
ber as he could possibly be. He has
been given the Jeast important and
most useless committee on the entire
Senate list, and has a room less desir
able than any other at the disposal of
the committee on committees.
There is no particular fondness for
La Follette in the Senate, for several
reasons. In the first place, after his
election, his press bureau announced a
programme that Senator La Follette
was going to put through Congress; It
pictured him leading the light for rail
road rate legislation such as the Pres
ident wants, and predicted that he
would be a mouthpiece of the Adminis
tration In the Senate. That was very
unfortunate for La Follette, for If
there 1b one thing the Senate resents
above all others it is the attempt of
any new Senator to force himself to
the front and attempt to assume the
responsibilities of leadership.
Affront to Senate.
Later on La Follette further injured
his standard in the Senate by clinging
to the Governorship of Wisconsin sev-
eral weeks after Congress convened.
For selfish purposes he held onto his
Job In Wisconsin, in preference to
coming to "Washington to begin his ca
reer as Senator. The Senate looks upon
this as an affront, in that it shows that
La Follette, for a time at least, con
sidered the Governorship more impor
tant than the Senatorshlp. He was un
wise when he made this move, and the
Senate wjll never forgive him.
Altogether, the future for "Bob" La
Folletto is not as bright as he and his
friends might hope. He will be a very
small factor in National affairs at
Washington, notwithstanding .lie was
the King Bee in Wisconsin, it is
safe prediction that his career at
"Washington, at least his first two
years, will be a sad disappointment to

arc great sticklers in the Senate today,
but none so rigid as the lamented Mr.
Butler Amuses lilmpclf.
The sessions of the House of Represen
tatives prior to the holiday recess were
notoriously dull and uninteresting, save
for a few enlivening events, such as the
washing of Democratic linen, when Rep
resentative Lamar, of Florida, was placed
in his political grave by John Sharp Will
iams, the minority leader. Speaker Can
non was aware that the sessions would
develop little of importance, and less of
interest, so when the Houfc each day
resolved itself into a committee of the
whole he called Representative Butler, of
Pennsylvania, to the chair, arid slipped
out to his committee-room to devote him
self to things both Interesting and Im
portant. Mr. Butler," one -of .a very few men who.
can get enjoyment "ont of the - thankless
task of presiding over the House during

'new members, "glad of an opportunity "Ton
ureaK into tne congressional .Record for
tho edification of the "dear people at
home" were recognized to make speeches
to an almost empty House. Mr. Butler
would listen for awhile from the Sneak
er's desk, and then, as the self-conscious
new member would rise to the heights
with some carefully prepared flight of
oratory, would bring his gavel down with
a whack that would startle the speaker
ana make him forget his words.

come from the rostrum, and the older

save his own voice
Sulzcr's Poetry Spoiled.
One day, while Mr. Butler was pre
siding. Representative Sulxer. of New
York, made an impassioned speech In
favor of the preservation of "Old Iron
sides," the historic frigate Constitu
tion. Mr. Sulzer has the voice of a
bull and he could be distinctly heard
In all parts of the House. In fact, the
House was, interested In what he had
to aay and waa listening closely. In
the midst of his speech Mr. Sulzer
quoted a famous bit of poetry. He
had waded through one stanza and
was winding up the second, when
"whack!" came the gavel. "The House
must be in order. The chair wants to
hear this bit of poetry." broke In Mr.
Butler. There was no provocation for
the interruption, but Mr. Butler
thought it was time to have a little
fun at Mr. Sulzer's expense, and he
had it. Mr. Sulzer said nothing, but
the expression on his face showed his
During an extremely dull speech
considerable confusion arose in the
House. It did not Interrupt the
speaker, for he was talking only for
home consumption, but It gave Mr.
Butler another excuse to break In
with a Joke "The gentleman will sus
pend," he said, as he thumped the
desk vigorously with his gavel. -The
gentlemen on the floor who are con
versing In undertones will plcaso
speak louder." said he. "The chair
wants to hear what they are talking
about." His sarcasm had its effect,
and the humdrum conversations
ceased. The "home consumption"
speech then went on without inter
Flood of Immigration Bills.
Judging by the number of immigra
tion bills that have been Introduced
this session, the labor unions of the
country have been delivering some
sledge-hammer blows upon their
friends In Congress. There Is a very
general impression that the present
Congress will amend the Immigration
laws in a way that will tend to check
the flow of foreigners Into the United
States. Just what sort of bill will be
passed cannot bo forecasted, but one
salient feature of every bill Is the In
crease In the head tar upon immi
grants. Immigrants arc now taxed J2
upon admission to the United States.
It Is proposed to Increase this tax to
anywhere from $10 to JIM, wjth a
view to debarring persons of the pau
per classes. The pending bills go fur
ther and Impose restrictions not now
enforced, all of which are intended to
keep out undesirable persons and keep
up the price ef labor. Soon after Con
gress reconvenes these Mlta will . be
taken up. and seme sort of beneficial
legislation is almost sure ta result.

P. A. Cochran, of Woodburn, who is
proud to have his friends refer to him as
the "hottest Democrat west of the Rocky

from active business life to devote his
time to politics.
During the past IS years he has been
prominent in the councils of his party in

as a stump speaker and ready debater.
My platform Is truth, hoaesty and the
