EFFECT OF TARIFF
Democratic Senators Stirred
by Charge Disastrous Re
sult Is Threatened.
EXPORTS SHOW INCREASE
Ketort Ma Be That Europeans Dis
trust American Stocks, and Also
Three Groups In Kew Tork
Are to Blame.
WASHINGTON, June 20. Critics and
friends of the Administration joined
In a sharp ten minutes prosperity de
bate In the Senate today. Senator
Smoot held the tariff responsible for
alarming conditions, while Senator
Owen blamed three groups of financiers
In New York. Senator Smoot stirred
the Democratic leaders b." predicting:,
on the basis of the Treasury statement
of foreign trade during- May, that If
the present trend of business conditions
did not change within the next few
months there would be "disastrous re
sults." He said the report showed that Im
ports during May Increased 119.900,
000 and the exports decreased $33,
000,000 as compared with May, 1913.
He read newspaper clippings of the
recent large gold shipments to Europe.
"Forelga Distrust" Held to Blame.
Senator Hollls, making the first re
ply for the Democrats, said foreign
distrust of American stocks, arising
from the collapse of the New Haveji
and of the St. Louis - San Francisco
railroads had resulted In turning Amer
ican stocks back on this country, and
the necessity of the sending of gold
to Europe in return.
Senator Thomas suggested thai some
European country must have profited
by the business America was losing.
Senator Smoot responded that the
Treasury report did not enter into that
question. Senator Smoot added he was
In favor of American labor getting the
benefit of business rather than foreign
labor. Senator Thomas suggested Eu
ropean laborers were crowding every
ship to America to escape the prosper
ity abroad the Utah Senator was pic
turing. Owen Charges Conspiracy.
Senator Owen advanced the state
ment that three groups of men with
headquarters In New York were re
sponsible for present conditions. He
said these men controlled $22,000,000,
000. practically all the railroads and
every big Industry In the country. He
"These men can forbid the railways to
buy rails, or buy steel cars, or to. buy
frogs and switches or buy lumber or
to buy cross-ties, -hese men can put
out of employment thousands upon
thousands of men; these men can con
strict credits In every district where
a Kepresentative is to be elected this
Fall and In every state where a Sen
ator is to be elected. These men have
it in their hands to send down to de
feat any candidate, be he Democrat,
Progressive or Republican, who does
not sympathize with them."
Senator Smoot Insisted that this had
nothing to do with the decrease of ex
ports or the increase of Imports.
