Upper House Censures Bingham
of Connecticut for
Tariff Framing.



New England Delegation Backs
Former Yale Professor
and War' Aviator.
By Francis 1. Stevenson,
A. P. Staff Writer
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4. - Con-
demnation was voted on Senator
Bingham of Connecticut by the
Senate today, 54 to 22, for his re-
lations with the Connecticut Man-
ufacturers' Association while for-
mulating the tariff legislation.
Obviously wounded but still de-
flant, the Republican Senator, a
former Yale professor and World
War aviator, replied as he left the
chamber, that he would certainly 1
not resign.
Through four hours of debate,
he has stubbornly contended his
right to use the officer of the Con-
necticut Association to help him in
his work of framing the tariff bill
and to take that officer into the
secret tariff rate-making session
of the finance committee Republi-
Absolved of Corrupt Motives.
Twice the Senate had voted down
attempts to modify the resolution
of condemnation, but then Sena-
tor Norris, Republican, Nebraska,
its author, yielded to pleas from 1
both sides of the Chamber that'
Bingham be absolved of corrupt
motives. That specification wentj
into the -resolution.
As the Senate was finally about
to vote,:the gray-haired Nebraskan
turned to the tall Connecticut Sen-
ator, slumped'in his seat behind
him, to assert the "pity is that the
Senator has not yet grasped that
the action he did was injurious to
the Senate."
The text of the resolution as ad-
opted read: "That the action of
the Senator from Connecticut, Mr.
Bingham, in placing Mr. Charles
L. Eyanson upon the official pay
roll of the Senate and his use by'
Senator Bingham at the time and
in the manner set forth in the re-
port of the sub-committee on the
judiciary while not a result of cor-
rupt motives on the part of the
Senator from. Connecticut is con-
trary to good morals and senatori-
al ethics and tends to bring the
Senate into dishonor and direpute,
and such conduct is hereby con-
Camber and Galleries Crowded.
It was the first time in 27 years
tl t the Senate voted to censure a
member and an atmosphere of
solemnity prevailed the Chamber
and galleries were crowded when
the resolution was brought up by
Norris at the outset of the' ses-
sion. Members of the House crowd-
ed obout the rear of the Chamber.
Bingham, himself, opened the
discussion after the resolution was
read, presenting a lengthy prepar-
ed defense of his use of Charles L.
Elyanson, the $10,000 assistant to
the president of the Connecticut
Association, as an aide during his
work with the finance committee
majority in drafting the bill. His
friends pleaded for a softening of
the wording of the resolution.
Senator Gillett, Republican, Mas-
sachusetts, cautionad that the Sen-
ate did not have time to censure
all indiscretions of its members but
one defended Bingham's action.
Senator Wheeler, Democrat, Mon-
tana, called upon the "old guard"
to express itself and finally Sena-
tor Gould, Republcan, Maine, who
had taken a seat beside Bingham,
arose to answer.
"The Senator from Connecticut
has made a four square statement
here of just what he done and why
he done it" said the Maine Sena-
tor, and the prevalent tension was
relieved -momentarily by laughter.
