Borah Raps Control Of Politics By Capitalists At Progressives’ Confab WASHINGTON, Mar. 11—(UP)—Tlie Progressive conference here broke into prolonged applause today Nvlicn Senator William E. Borah, Repn., Idaho, called for political realignment to insure representation of % per cent <>f the population which, he said, owns only 20 percent of thc wealth. Borah’B declaration was the nearest approach to a third party hint in a day of heated denunciation of capitalistic influence In the management of both major parties. The Idaho senator blamed the present depression upon "a coterie of capatalists who Inaugurated the most vicious era of speculation and Inflation of which the world gives any record." Borah asserted the capitalists "drew Into their meshes of specu lation and inflation hundreds ot thousands of people, stripped them, not to sny robbed them of their life's earnings, threw them back upon society to wander, hopelessly In life, or to seek an ending In a suicide's grave—as thousands did." Borah said four per cent of the population controls 80 per cent of the nation's wealth. "I would not take it from them," he said. "But I do think there should be a political party ln this country—if not a political party, then a political voice—which would worry more about the 96 per cent than about the four per cent.” Leaders of both major parties were castigated by the progressive orators, more than a score of whom talked in the three sessions of the opening day. Senator George W. Norris. Ilepn., Neb., paid his respects to Senator James E. Watson, Ind., Republican senate leader, as a man who “used to be a lobbyist seeking favors for great corpora tlons at the hands of congress." "I presume his former masters are better pleased with his work Inside than outside of congresr.,” Norris added after sarcastic re ferences to Watson'B letter of the day before calling upon the progressives to give definite answers to a aeries of controversial questions. He viewed the letter as an attempt to embarrass the conference. Senator John J. Blaine, Repn., Wis., evoked applause and laughter when he referred to President Hoover as "the great engineer of disaster," while Borah, in addition to accusing both major parties of repudiating their 1928 campaign promises for farm relief also attacked chairman John J. Raskob of the Democratic national com mittee for Ills recent suggestion that capitalists and wealthy corporations should not be harassed "I take the position, without any apology, that the man of vast wealth Is not in possession of It to deal with it as he chooses, regardless of the benefit and thn welfare of society,” Borah de clsred.
