Wiliams Gets Cold Feet.
John Sharp Williams, one of the
Democratic leaders in the Senate got
cold feet and was forced to oppose
some of the amendments offered by
his party members. When the
House bill re-drafting the cotton
schedule, was under consideration,
and amendments were being offered,
Senator Williams said:
"Mr. .President, I think we are on
the eve of doing some very danger
ous things without due consideration.
I do not believe that any one man
can give due consideration to any
great schedule of the tariff bill, no
matter how able he is. I have had
gome experience serving upon com
mittees dealing with tariff questions,
and I have, for the most part, found
that my own opinion became modi

and suggestions I obtained from 13
or 14 other men serving upon com
"Speaking for myself, therefore, I
am not willing to be put on record
as indorsing amendments containing
page after page of tariff schedules,
when I know that they neither have
been considered at the other end of
the Capitol nor can be considered by
the time the amendment reaches
there. The rubber schedule Is very
inimiitoua in many regards. The
sugar schedule, especially that part
of it which deals with differentials,
is very obnoxious to me. But for my
self, I shall not vote to put upon
this bill anything except things that
have been considered In some com-!
mittee somewhere, especially at the
other end of the Capitol, or such
things as we know would be consid-?
ered by the time the amendment
dealing with the subject reaches the
