of the bouse last night In p tbe

of the amendment, r,
Vnder the Dingley an additional or
countervailing duty is levied on sugsrs
coming from countries psylng a bounty on
sugar, equal In amount to the bounty re
ceived. Thia la by section 6 of tbe Dtngley
act and Is a provision separate from that
making a differential between tbe duty on
raw and refined sugar.
Mr. Payne holds, . however, that ss the
amendment specifies that tbe rate of 1.825
centa shall be "in lieu of the dutlea thereon
bow provided by law," It takes off both
the differential of about 12 cents per 100
pounds and the countervailing duty of the
Dingley law amounting to between 26 and
27 cents per 100 pounds.
Sees a (Greater Loss.
Mr. Payne stated later in the dsy that
tbe abolition of the differential and coun
tervailing duties effected an even greater
reduction and loae than he bad at first
estimated. His earlier figures showed the
countervailing duty to be between 26 and
27 rents per 100 pounds. But this referred
to rsw sugsr, and tbe countervailing duty
on the refined article was even more,
namely, .883 per 100 pounds.
This, with the differential of .125. makes
a total reduction 'on refined sugsr of .SO,
per 100 pounds. Mr. Long of tbe ways
and means committee also made estimates
which. In his Judgment, bore out the fore
going figures, thst ths amendment would
take off In differential and countervailing
duties a total of .i on refined sugsr com
ing from Germany and other countries giv
ing bounties. - --
Representative Morris of Minnesota, who
framed the amendment. Is examining tha
Dtngley and other laws to determine
whether Mr. Payne's point ia good. Morris
said that from hla Inquiry so far he did
not think the claim was good, but If It
was th matter could easily b remedied
Bcaate Is t'adeelded.

Senator Piatt declined to say more than
that a meeting would be called at an early

The best opinion Is that ths bill will re

republican senstor suggested tbe possibility
of an Investigation into the question of

Prehnble Fate of Bill.
If the bill had passed the house without
an smendment removing tbe differential on
refined auger, It would have received the
support of two of the four opposition mem
bers of tbe committee. These sre Messrs
Money snd Simmons, and they are now
more than ever pleased with It. On tbe
other hand at least two cf the republican
member. Messrs. McMillan and Spooner
oppose tbe bill. Tb indications are that
th democratic strength of ths committee

differential amendment. Hence, It
probable that th character of th report

will depend upon other republican members

Senator Teller says ho will support any

for the tw slsmests In th recent struggle
to give expression t their feelings. This
occurred while th fortification appropria

which the opponents of th way and means
committee had engrafted upon the Payas
bill not oaly wiped out ths differential oa
sugsr, but also did away wtth the counter
vailing duty of the Dtngley law.
Mr. Weeka of Michigan made a spirited

TO SETTLE THE JURISDICTION
Attorney General of Minaesnta Will
Oppose Transfer ot Mercer Snlt
to Fcdrrnl C'oarta.
ST. PAIL, Minn., April 19 The attor
ney general of Minnesota. W. B. Douglas,
will oppose the removal of tbe merger suit
from the Ramsey county district court Into
the United Ststes circuit court. He will
go Into the United Slates circuit court and
there move tbe court to remand the suit
to tbe county court from which it came.
General Douglas said today, after a consul
tation with Senator Wilson, associate coun
sel in the case:
"The transfer of the case will not em
barrass or hinder tbe action of the state.
It is Immaterial in which court the rase
Is tried, hut the motion to remand will st
once bring up the question of Jurisdiction
snd when that is settled we ran proceed
with the trial of the case on Its merits. In
sny event. It will reach the supreme court
without unnecessary delay."
The state expects President Hill of tbe
Northern Securities company to renew tn
the federsl court his motion to vacate the
service of summons on the Northern Se
curities company, and himself as presi
dent of that company on the same ground
that tbe motion was mads In the Rsmsey
county district court, thst the Northern
Securities company Is not doing business
as a corporation In Minnesota and has ap
pointed no agent In this ststs to receive
service. Th service es Mr. Hill, a presi
dent of th Northern Securities company,
will he objected to on the ground that be
ia not a resident of this state in that ca
pacity, but only as an Individual. Should
the service be vscated, then the state will
probably try to secure service by publics

Object of Coercion.
Tbe reel object of tbe coercion Is to
crush the lesgue snd thus enable tbs land
lords to get higher rates for ths purcbaa
of their holdings thsn the United Irish
league advises tbe tenants to pay. Th
Issuing of th proclamation putting th
crime act la force was due to tbs Influ
ence of Lord Londonderry, now In th
cabinet, who Is the leader of the Irish
landlord party and to tbe inciting and th
groso exaggeration of circumstances by cer
tain London newspapers, whoa pictures ot
conditions In Ireland Secretary Wyndham
himself acknowledged were ridiculous
traveratles of the truth.
In order to coerce the tenants Into pay
ing more thsn the market prlc for their
holdings the British cabinet has suspended
trial by jury In nlns counties, which hav

Moreover, no one charged with any of

In bis own county, but at th request ot
tbe attorney general venue must be
changed to any other part of Ireland.
Under this power nationalist tenants,
whom there was no chance for convicting
anywhere else, have been taken to Belfast
to be tried by an orang Jury. .
In abort, every nationalist In those nln
counties Is deprived ot every constitutional
right and Is placed absolutely In tbs powsr
of any policeman who considers him In.
