Sixty-fifth Day The 'House began
the consideration of the bill to. classify
the, rural free delivery " service and
place the carriers- under the contract
system. Only two speeches were: deliv
ered. Mr. Loud, of California, $J chair
man of the committee on : postoffices
and post roads, made.ttte opening argu
ment In; favor of the bill,-speaking for
two and a half hours. .Mr. Swansori. of
was:- interrupted before the .close
.of ;:the -session by' the presentation of
ifcy - leader, declined to allow the minor
ity more ttian SO minutes ih which to
discuss the- report and this offer was'
rejected by Mr. Richardson, -the minor-
ity leader. A filibuster followed, and the
House adiourned after' the previous
question upon, the adoption of , the re-
port -ii aa oeen oraerea.
Mr.. Loud, ci California, began the
debate, on the rural free deliveny bill.
He declared that upon the solution of
this question would depend whether
the rural free delivery. "service would
been' a political ,one and it had given
many members ;of Congress their first
taste of the sweets of . publio patronage.
He traced the history and rapid growth
of the service and its-cosf declaring
that it was the most extravagant in the
public : service; r( At vthe inception the
the carriers -received $300 per annum,
They now receive $600; .If the salary
present time. $850,000 was being spent
for the supervisory , force. Mr. ioud
charged that a promise had gone forth
that -if the present system was contiu-
uea the members or - Congress would
control the appointment of the carriers
in the future as they had in the ca3t. -

Sixty-fifth Day The Senate began
the consideration of "what is popularly
known -as ' the shipping bill. Mr. Frye,
chairman of the . committee on com-
merce; made the opening statement in
support of the bill. Ho occupied the.
floor for nearly two hours, reviewing
the mtasure reported by the commit
tee and dealing .with questions which
have arisen in connection with its cOn-
Mr. Frye's address "w'as
largely technical, but; his argument was
listened to with close attention by Sen
ators on both sides of the chamber; It
seemed to; him, Mr. Frye Stated; that
the policy of protection had been vast
ly beneficial to the American people.
The United States, he asserted had do
peer industrially;; ; One Industry ? had
been without, protection and .without
protection for 50 years an d what was
the logical "result? The shipping inter
ests of the country had been neglected
in the; giving of protection. This tin
try had permitted its inferiors to aeize
upon the pathways of ocean commerce
almost without a struggle. ; V "
"It seems to me," said Mr; Frye,
"that that picture- ought 'to" humiliate
and mortify beyond expression any
patriotic citizen of the "United States
who. glories in the power -and prosper
ity of his country. It is not alone hu-mfiiating-it
is absolutely dangerous."
t Mr; Frye asked who .was going to
carry the $487,0P0,000 of exports in the
event of a war between German and
Great. Britain. "Why, said he, "the
farmers and the manufacturers and the
wage-earners of, the United States
would pay a penalty equal to that paid
by either of the contending parties."
Mr. Frye then sought to show that 'this
condition of things was caused by
American wages, which increased the
cost: of our ships for the foreign trade
at least 25 per cent. , I
Mr. Frye declared that of all steam
ships in the world of 14' knots and up-
ward, 80 per cent, are subsidized by the
countries whose flags they carry. Of 16
knots and upward, he said, all but six'
in the world are heavily subsidized by
the countries whose flags they 'float
"Are we to submit to this humiliating,
wretched condition "of things?'' said Mr.
The nations paying these: subsidies,
he declared, did so for; the purpose of
extending their trade and for nothing
else. "Trade cannot precede the mail.'
said he. "The mail must precede the

THE CUBAN TROUBLE
President Anxious For Settlement of
- Reciprocity Matter' t
THE CABINET SAID TO BE DIVIDED
Many Leaders in the Councils of the
Nation Call on-Mr. v Roosevelt Con
cerning the flatter. -
Washington, Special. Speaker Hen
derson and Representative Cannon, of
Illinois; called at the . Whate House .
Wednesday; It was relative to the sub
ject of Cuban reciprocity and the call
led to much expeculative i comment, al
though -; no definite details were avail
able on the. nature of the conference.
Active canvassing continued, prelimi
nary to the third caucus on Cuban re
ciprocity to be held Thursday night.
The. most positive claims were made by.
those opposed to Representative)
Payne's 20 per cent reciprocity "plan,
tnat there was a clear majority against
it. Mr. Payne and his associates did
not concede this much and expressed
the belief that a concession, to Cuba
would be ultimately granted.. It was .
said in this connection that ; Speaker
Henderson is now favorable to the po .
sition taken by the majority on the
ways an d means committee.
'During the" day several members of
the cabinet were called on by Messrs. ,
Tawney ,of the ways and means com- ,
mittee; who has proposed to rebate
plan as a substitute for Chaxirman.
Payne's, plan, and Morris, ,of ; Mlnne--sota.
As an outcome of these calls,; it
was stated that three members of the
cabinet, namely, .Pctmaster General
Payne,lSepretary of theTrur Shaw1
and Secretary "of Agriculture
were hopeful of seeing a solution of the
problem which would, not 1 endanger
any American industry. This was con- ...
strued in some quarters Jo show a di
vision in the cabinet but it-was stated
by those conversant with the situation
hat the attitude of the cabinet mem
bers did not warrant any sucn con
Later in the day, Representative
Tawney called at the White House and .
had '; a conference lasting nearly an
hour and a'half with the President. It
developed that Mr. Tawney liad told .'
the . President . that there was little or
no possibility for the adoption , of the
Payne plan by the Republican confer
ence and that if it was adopted some 40
Republican members would n3t consid
er themselves bound and would carry
the question to the floor of the. House
whe,re there would be additional com
plications owing to the attitude of the
Democraticmembers. : -y, ;
The President is "understood to have
made it clear that he had no intention
at present of sending a special message
to Congress on the subject The Presi
dent expressed the most earnest solici
tude that a satisfactory adjustment be
reached by . Congress. After hearing
from Mr. . Tawney, ' his associates ; ex
pressed the belief that the President
would accept the rebate proposition If .
Congress would present It to him. Thty
were considerably encouraged to hear
from Mr. Tawney that the President
was not laying down any emphitie ul-
timatum in favor of the plan as pre
sented by Mr. Payne.
While these conferences .were going
on at the Wh.lte .House, , Chairman
Payne and - members of . the ways ; and
means committee supporting him. were
in conference; This brought about no
change in their attitude.; One of the.
members stated that he wav confident
that the Payne reciprocity proposition
commanded a majority of th-3 Republi
can members, but that the s minority
was so . large and was so disposed to
carry the contest into the House that
Mr. Payne and his friends recognized
the seriousness of the situation; How
ever, there was no disposition-to ac
cept the rebate plan, as it was stated
that this was merely a repetition of
the plan proposed by the head , of the
beet sugar organization two months
ago. . . , , ' - ' -
