Senate Accepts Compromise on Free
( From Omnlm World-Herald. )
Washington , D. C. , August 1 ,
The senate today passed the far
mer's free list bill after amending
it according to a compromise offer
ed by Senator Kern.
The bouse bill , exempting from
a tariff duty a variety of agricul
tural implements , cereals , meats ,
cotton bagging and other articles ,
was defeated by a tie vote of 39 to
Its democratic Cramers claimed
that , in effecting a great saving to
the people generally , it involved
a net reduction of a little over
$8,000,000 in tariff revenue.
According to program , the senate
ate immediately , after voting
down the bill , reconsidered the
vote without roll call , on motion of
Senator La TTollette , republican in
surgent , and Senator Kern of In
diana , democrat , then offered a
compromise amendment taking
meats' off the free list when com
ing from countries that do not ad
mit American cotton , corn , wheat ,
oats , horses , cattle and hogs free
The senate adopted the Kern
compromise amendment to the
free list bill , 49 to 29. The com
promise measure was then pas&ed ,
48 to 30.
The bill , despite its importance
and the general interest it has awakened -
wakened along with other tariff
revision legislation , has had but
sparse reference on its merits as
a bill on the floor of the senate ,
but its provisions have frequently j
figured incidently to other pend
Its life dates back to April 12 ,
when democratic Leader Under
wood introduced it in the house.
The ways and means committee
seven days later reached the bill fa
vorably and the house on May S ,
passed it by a vote of 236 to 109.
Then the finance committee of the
senate took it , gave hearing on it
for five days and on. June 21 ,
Chairman PenrosB of that com
mittee reached the bill adversely
to the senate. The next day Sen-
ator Bailey of Texas offered the
bill as an amendment to the reci
procity bill and this amendment
was rendered on July 12. On
July 14 , the bill was fixed for a
final vote today and it became the
unfinished business of the senate
on July 27 , though little advan
tage was taken of.the opportunity
to debate the bill.
The free list bill would place on
the free list agricultural imple
ments , cotton bagging , cotton ties ,
leather boots and shoes , fence
wire , meats , cereals , flour , bread ,
timber , lumber , sewing machines ,
salt and other articles. The ex
emptions are designed to take
effect on the day following the
approval of the measure.
Voting on various amendments
to the farmer's free list bill was
begun in the senate as soon as the
routine morning business was dis
posed of. The first amendment
to add coal and coke to the free
list was defeated , 23 to 52.
Senator Bailey's amendment to
exempt fresh meat from the op
eration of the free list bill was de
feated , 14 to G3. This amend
ment received no.democratic votes
and apparently foreshadowed pas-
age of the house bill without a-
mendment. . The Bailey amend
ment to put lemons on the free
list was defeated , 15 to 59.
Lack of sufficient water for power
at the Minnechaduza Mill , due to
the drouth , has forced closing of

plant. Therefore great care in the
