Declares a Majority of the Republican
Members are Opposed to Reciproc
ity Bill But Driven to Vote For It
by the Powers That "Be.
Washington, April 17. Cushman, a
republican member from Washington,
created a sensation In the house dur
ing the debate on the Cuban recip
rocity bill, today, by making an at
tack on Speaker Henderson.
Cushman said: "To do business In
the house a man must first make
terms with the speaker. All glories
that cluster around the holy of holies
of Solomon's temple look like 30 cents
when compared io the jobbing de
partment of this government office
occupied by the speaker of this
house. Aye, like 29 cents. When I
get the opportunity, later in the ses
sion, I will make another speech on
the rules of this house, which will
be so hot that It will have to bo
printed on asbestos paper to keep It
from burning."
Cushman was frequently Interrupt
ed by uproarious laughter and tempos,
tuous applause, that came not alone
from the democratic side. Continu
ing, Cushman said:
"Why am I so thin? Because peo
ple of my state are asking me to pro
mote certain legislation, that is what
is pushing me from the rear. Then I
get up against the speaker and com
mittee on rules stone wall and
that is what pushed me from the
front, and that why I now look as
flat as a canceled postage stamp."
Cushman then launched forth in an
attack on the reciprocity bill, alleg
ing the majority of the republican
members of the house were opposed
to the bill, but had been convinced by
the powers that It will be best to
serve their interests and vote for It.
Cushman dramatically appealed to
the republicans not to desert the
principles of protection and said, no
matter what may be the outcome, he
would stand for protection of Ameri
can industries. He concluded amid
loud and continued applause from
both democrats and republicans.
ixicaraguan Canal Bill Up.
Washington, April 17. The Nlca-
raguan canal bill was laid before the
senate today, Senator Morgan making
the, first address, -morgan said he as
sumed the senate was convinced that
the Isthmian canal was a national
necessity. The best route and not
the cheapest, was what was wanted,
he declared. He claimed the Nlcara
guan was the true and safe route to
be adopted by congress. The United
States could not afford to take bucIi
risks as were required on the Pana
ma route, for the supposed gain of so
small a sum as was Involved.
