VOTE ON TARIFF
Final Ballot Agree! On for 4
O'clock This Afternoon.
CUSTOMS COURT IS ADOPTED.
Proposed Law Is Opposed by Cummins
and Dolllver Senator Bailey's Indl
vidual Income Tax Amendment It
Presented and Voted Down Hold
ing Companies Included In Corpora
tion Tax Provision.
Washington, July 8. The final vote
in the senate on the tariff bill will be
takeu by 4 o'clock this afternoon. The
arrangement for a vote was reached
after much consultaUon. Because of
the possiblo effect on the tobacco
schedule there was no effort to obtain
formal assent in the senate to fix a
time for a vote. It is expected that
the bill, as perfected, will receive
practically all, though not all, of the
Republican votes, while it la under
stood that probably all of the Demo
cratic votes, with the exception of the
vote of Senator McEnery (La.), will
be cast against it. When passed the
measure wjll be hurried over to the
house as expeditiously as possible and
as it Is expected that the house will
be In session tomorrow morning there
is some hope of receiving it.
Income Tax Rejected.
The Income tax question, including
the corporation tax provision and in
heritance taxes, received much atten
tion In the senate and the straight
income taxers were afforded the op
portunity upon which they have bo
long Insisted' to get a direct vote In
favor of the income tax as opposed to
the corporation tax. Senator Bailey
moved his Income tax amendment as a
substitute for the committee's pro
vision, and without debate a vote was
taken on it and it was rejected by a
majority of 19, the ballot standing 28
With the corporation tax provision
thus securely established as a part of
the tariff bill, there wa3 considerable
effort to amend It, and In one notable
caso this effort wa3 successful. Sen
ator Clapp (Minn.) has been a severe
critic of the provision ever since its
Introduction because It excludes
"holding companies." Ho renewed his
criticism and' was supported in his
views by other senators. The ultl
mate. result was the acceptance by
Senator Aldrlch of an amendment by
Clapp, striking out the exemption of
holding companies. Assurance was
also gjven that every effort would be
mado to retain the amendment In con
Customs Court Provision Adopted.
Next to the Income tax, the discus
sion of the customs court was the big
feature of the day's work. The court
was attacked as In the Interest of the
cities in which it would sit, and the
government, as opposed to the Inter
ests of the importers. Sent ..or Cum
mlnB expressed the opinion that the
court would be unconsciously Influ
enced to decide in favor of the gov
ernment no matter what -the clrcim
wtances of a given case might be.
Senators Aldrich and Lodge defend
ed the court, the latter asserting that
It would not only Insure the honest
and uniform determination of customs
cases, but would save the government
many millions of dollars.
Whjle the court provision was under
consideration, Senator Dolllver read a
letter from United States Judgo La
combe of New York, stating that the
federal courts were not overcrowded
and could handle the customs busi
ness without becoming congested. Im
mediately after that Aldrjch read an
other letter, under date of July 22.
1908, signed by Judge Lacombe and
other New York federal Judges, In
which it was Rtated that If the cus
toms cases were to bo appealed to the
United States courts of appeals their
dockets would become very crowded.
The debate over the court provision
resulted Jn the acceptance of the
finance commlfteo's provision.

that the charge against the girl ware
baseless. The ncrusiitjon of the wife,

Eishtcen-Year-Old Girl Sticks to Hef
Chicago, July Ella Ginsles, the
elghteru -year-old Irish laremaker, was
ou the witness stand in Judge Bran-
tano's court room all day. matching
her wit and her innocent face against
the sharpness of the lawyers who
were trying to confound her. The
girl was cross-examined by Assistant
State's Attorney B. J. Short on the
story she related of how she was at
tacked by two women and a man In
the bathroom of the Wellington hotel,
Fob. 16. This 6tory was similar Jn
many details to the one she gave last
Friday concerning another attack upon
her Jan. 5 In a room of the sanm ho
tel. Miss Agnes Barrette and the
late Mr Cecelia Kenyon figured as
assailants In both cases. The girl did
not hesitate In her answers. She faced
the prosecutors with simple detalle.
She told of the most Impossible situ
ations, apparently with candor and
frankness. The case probably will
reach the Jury tomorrow. The court
room was cleared of all but those hav
ing a dL'ect Interest In the case by
toe order of the Judge.

Takes Rap at Rural Educator.
Denver, July 8. Delegates to the
National Education association heard
some sharp crltlcjsnis of teachers.
Henry Q. Williams, dean of the state
normal school at Athens, O., speaking
of teachers in country schools, said
"There are some rural teachers who
don't know even the ABC of educa
tion, yet they are called 'professors
Just the same as the corn doctor ox
the dog trainer."
James W. Robertson, president of
MacDonald college, st. Anne de Bello
vue, Quebec, said agricultural schools
must be more closely alliod with the
rural schools In general to bring about
the desired end of keeping the boys
on the farm. Ha declared that to make
the boys stay on the farm, the farm
must be made fit to stay on. And there
must be as much education for the
gjrl as for the boy.
J. Y. Joyner, superintendent of the
South Carolina schools, was an
nounced as a candidate for president
of the association in opposition to
Benjamin Blewott, superintendent ot
schools of St. Louis, and J. II. Phillips,
