Iowa Senator Vigorously In

Tarty Pledge, Declares Speaker, Is
Vet to Be Kept Railroad Bill
Contains Some Good Pro
vlsons, and Some Bad.
CRE9TON, la., June 4. Senator Cum
mins in a vigorous, speech at the Court
house this afternoon reached the climax
on the campaign for the Eighth district
Republican Congressional nomination be
ing waged by John H. Iarrah, of Chari
ton, against Judge H. M. Towner, of
Senator Cummins spoke upon the real
issues in this campaign. He outlined the
work of the Cannon-Aldrich organization
in controllng legislation for the interests
of the East and against the interests
of the "West, and showed the alignment
of the present Iowa Congressmen and
Tariff Pledge Not Kept.
"I love the Republican party, but I
am not going to He for it," asserted
Senator Cummins following his state
ment that the Payne tariff bill is not
a revision downward, as promised by the
"This tariff is not a true revision down
ward. The pledge of the party is yet to
be redeemed. And I want you to know
that it is the progressive Republicans
who are fighting, to redeem this pledge
and keep the fair name of the Republican
party pure and clean."
The Senator dwelt long on the rail
road bill, saying that In its present
form it contains many provisions that
are beneficial, also some that are not.
Court Provision Asailcd.
in its original form, however, he
said, as it was prepared and handed
ddwn by "a New York lawyer," it con
tained vicious provisions and was the
boldest measure presented to Congress
for approval in years.
Senator Cummins hit at the Court of
Comerce provision contained in the bill
In the form it passed, asserting that
it creates a board having more power
than even given to any tribunal or
any Institution of the people and for
which the American people 'have no
more use than the ruler of the uni
verse sitting in Judgment on the golden
steps leading to the New Jerusalem."
Hhe characterized this provision in
the bill as "amazing in its boldness,
hocking, intolerable."
FACTIOXAL striff, bitter
With "Insurgency" as Issue, Fight
ing Will Continue Monday.
rXLS MOINES, la.. June 4. This state,
the immediate center of the Nation's
Interest In Republican politics, refused
to close the primary campaign with to-,
night's, meetings, and will continue it
State officers and Representatives In
Congress will be nominated. Broadly
speaking, the issue ln the Republican
ranks is the present Republican admin
istration. Outside this broad line of demarca
tion between the factions there are,
however, factional differences so com
plicated that even veteran observers,
like Lafayette Young, admit their in
ability to solve the situation. To a
degree the prestige of Senator Cum
mins is Involved in the fight between
Governor B. F. Carroll and Warren
Garst for the Gubernatorial nomina
tion. Cummins' Position Forced.
Cummins is said to have been forced
to support Garst by the ."stand pat"
maneuver of placing the present Gov
ernor under the banner of the National
Administration. The formation of a
"Taft Club" in support of Carroll was
the principal point in this development.
Thus the renomlnatlon of the Governor
will be hailed, if it takes place, by the
so-called reactionaries as a slap at
Cummins. As to his own thoughts in
the matter, the Governor has said lit
tle save that he does not purpose to
be dictated to by Cummins and Dolli
ver. On Congressional nominations, the
contests exciting greatest Interest are

Oregon Gets Large Share of
Record-Breaking Travel
From Northwest.
Burlington Official Thinks Differ

(Continued From First Fagfl.)
basis, the movement for the six weeks
Spring period into the Northwest and
into California, Idaho, Montana, Ne
vada, Utah, Colorado and Wyoming;
must have been approximately 50,000
colonists. These figures do not take
into account the colonists who went to
the British Northwest through the
gateways reached by the Hill lines.
This- movement, however, was unusu
ally large this Spring, so large. In fact,
that congestion frequently occurred at
the boundary line, where colonists were
compelled frequently to wait several
days to have, their household effects
passed by the Custom House officials. .
It Is interesting to note - that the
table prepared by the Harriman lines
shows only a single decrease In the
movement, the decrease being only 47
colonists destined for Montana, Nevada,
Utah, Colorado and Wyoming. The in
creases to the Oregon points and the
Puget Sound and other 'Washington
points were the greatest, as Increases
of - 856 and 863 persons, respectively,
were shown. ' -
. .'. Burlington Notes Gain,
P. S. Eustis, passenger traffic mana
ger of the Burlington road, summed up
the colonist movement over the Burl
ington as follows: .
First To California indications are
that the total traffic was about the
same as last Spring, but the Burlington
got considerably less, because of inter
rupted service over the San Pedro line,
which was washed out. Last year the
Burlington had a through car by way
of Salt Lake every day, whereas thia
Spring there was no such service.
Second To Colorado, Nevada, Idaho
and. Southern Oregon points the Burl
ington showed no perceptible change,
the colonist movement this Spring be
ing about equal to that of last Spring
in numbers, despite the fact that the
period was two weeks shorter.
Third to the Northwest, via Billings,
to Puget Sound, Washington and
Northern Oregon points, the increase
was considerable, probably 20 per cent.
Via the St. Paul gateway to the same
Western country, the increase was
probably somewhat less, say 15 per
cent, and via St. Paul to Montana there
was a large business this year as com
pared with nothing at all, or at least
an insignificant volume of business last
Eustis Makes Comparisons.
In speaking of the colonist movement in
general this Spring, Mr. Eustis said:
"When I was in Denver a little while
ago I found the Denver & Rio Grande had
handled in five weeks ended April 7. about
5300 passengers, which was practically the
same number as for the same period last
year. I think there was an increase of
about 300 in all. This was notwithstand
ing that the rates from all part's of the
country had been reduced $5 a ticket;
from the Missouri River, for instance,
from $30 to $25. a decrease of 16 2-8 per
cent, which would require an increase of
30 per cent in the number of passengers
to amount to the same revenue. I find
that our business to California during the
whole of the two months in question in
creased from 2223 passengers last year to
2519 passengers, this year, only 13 per cent
more, of course meaning less revenue
than last year.
"All this indicates that these were mis
taken who said that the comparatively
small business to California and the en
tire Pacific Coast in the Spring of 1908
was due to an increase of $6 yhlch was
then made in the price of tickets and that
the proper remedy was to restore the
old rate by reducing the fare $3 again.
The volume of business has not panned
out as expected by these who hold that
Revenue Is Increased.
"During this same period our business
delivered-to the Northern Pacific at Bill
ings increased 2900 passengers, about 35
per cent, most of which increase was on
colonist tickets, and means an increase
in revenue, notwithstanding the decrease
In rate. But from our knowledge of con
ditions in the Northwest we do not at
tribute the increase in passengers to any
important extent to a reduction in the
fare this year as compared with last.
"The Denver & Rio Grande people for
five weeks ended April 7, showed me that
their business through Ogden to what
they call the Northwest had increased 50
per cent, but this was not all to the
Pacific Coast. A great deal of it was
increased traffic to the new land districts
along the Oregon Short Line in Idaho,
and I take it from what I hear that the
question of rates had little to do with
"I am sorry that I can give no fig
ures showing the amount of business done
during the colonist period via St. Paul to
the Northwest The most I can cay about
it Is that the increase there was perhaps
just about the same as the increase via
Billings, but certainly there was an in
crease." Fight Makes Vancouver Mayorless.

Attachment Would Retard Vessel
Also When Speed Is Sought.
WASHINGTON. June 4. Although it
was demonstrated by trial on the bat
tleship Indiana that what is known as
the "ship brake" would undoubtedly
stop a vessel in somewhat less time
than where it was not employed, the
device has been found unsuitable for
naval usage.
The naval board which conducted the
test holds that the brake, which re
sembles & barndoor on either side of
the ship, would soon become clogged
with barnacles unless constantly em
ployed. It would also increase the
danger from torpedo attack, be a grave
menace in close evolutions and retard
the speed of the ship.
