Senator Brown favored the convention,
when Senator Howell asked why the re
publicans had ' not provided for a conven
tion. King answered that the stats was
now out of debt and could afford to hold
one. Bartoe said fourteen amendments had
been adopted and others could be also.
Tanner suggested the reason the republi
cans needed a convention now was because
a democrat had been elected governor, and
as he was the head of numerous boards,
referred to as "needing change.
It was brought out that it takes an
unalmous agreement of political parties to

last agreement .over art ' amendment, ' but
the standing count showed, a majority In

today recommended for passage the meas
ure of Senator Donohoe of Holt county,
for a non-partisan Judiciary and for non
partisan school officers. The measure
provides that Judges of the supreme court,

taken out of the category of officers nomi
nated at the regular primary elections and
shall be placed on the ballot at the regular

FIGHT OVER LINCOLN - CHARTER
Set faslmost on be C'emmUaloa
V (From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Feb. J.-f Special. )-Tho Lin-
coin charter will be dtacosscd tomorrow
night before the committee on cities and
towns. Lincoln people are somewhat di
vided over the proposed plan and Mayor
T.' W. Brown Is openly fighting the pro
posed ensctment. It Is probable the hear
ing will be a lively session.
The new charter places the control of the
City In the hands of a commission of five
members, of whom the mayor shall be one.
The mayor Is deprived of the power of
veto.. The salary of the commissioners Is
placed at $3,000 a year each, with tho Idea
of securing persons .who are qualified to
act and are responsible business men.
Among those already mentioned for the
place are: W. E. Hardy, president of the
Commercial club; City Clerk Thomas Pratt,
City Attorney John M. Stewart, Council
men Everett Sawyer and Bert George.
Mayor Brown says that the plan will
result In an Increase In taxation and cites
the fact that Dcs Moines Is paying a tax
per capita now of 111.81. while the per
capita of Lincoln Is $4.S0. He savs that of
the 1907 tax S9 per cent has already been
collected and 67 per cent of the 1908 tax
Is paid during the four months' time In
which It has been possible to turn the
money. These conditions, he thinks, show
that the people are satisfied with the pres
ent system and have the money to pay
the taxes levied.

FOR TARIFF COMMISSION
Men of Opposing- View Meet in Con
ytntion in Indianapolis.
PKESENT SCHEDULES DENOUNCED
Speakers ay Thy Are laselentlfle
and Ask that Problem Be Taken
Ont of PolHIra Address
by Senator Brown.
INDIANAPOLIS. Feb. 1.-Men of oppos
Ing political parties and of widely different
views regarding the tariff sat side by side
as delegates and applauded today as the
speakers In the first national tariff commis
sion convention vigorously denounced the
present tfcrlff and the method of Its con
struction. That the present tariff system has been
outgrown and that the United States lin
gers decades behind the scientific meth
ods of European countries was repeated
slmost ss often ss a new speaker addressed
the delegates. hTat the prompt establish
ment of a nonpartisan tariff commission
was the only remedy for present conditions
was emphatically declared.
On the nature of the commission, whether
n suouia do a permanent bureau and an ad
junct to the Department of Commerce and
Labor, an appointive commission, one com
posed of experts only, or a body of busi
ness men empowered to engage experts,
the -speakers differed as apparently did
the delegates, but of the urgent need for It
there seemed no dispute.
J. W. VanOve of St. Louis, president
of the National Association of Manufac
turers, who was made the permanent chair
man of the gathering, aroused the first
enthusiasm by asserting that the tariff
must be taken out of partisan politics. Con
gressman Fowler of New Jersey, who Is
sponsor for the Bcverldge commission bill
now before congress, caused a demonstra
tion when he asserted that the tariff must
cease to be the foot ball of political parties.
Mach Enthnstaant Displayed.
The attendance was not so large as had
been hoped for by the officials, but much
enthusiasm Is displayed. Many more dele
gates are expected tomorrow and local In
terest will ,be aroused' by the presence of
Benator Beverldge as the principal speaker.
Former Governor Guild of Massachusetts,
Senator Brown of Nebraska and oCngress
man Rojisdel of Louisiana gave the varying
viewpoints of their sections. That there
was lltMe conflict save on minor points was
Indicated by their speeches.
Mr. Ouild spoke feelingly concerning. the
alleged combination of Chicago packers on
the duty on hides, and the alleged victim
izing of the American farmer.
Senator Brown did not except himself
when speaking of the mystification of the
average congressman on the subject of the
tariff and IJenry It. Towne questioned vig
orously the ability of the members of the
ways and means committee to deal intelli
gently with the same subject. H. E. Miles,
a manufacturer, coincided with Mr. Towne.
Senator Owen of Oklahoma, was de
layed in reaching the convention by a snow
bound train and will deliver his address
Speech of Senator Brown.
While I believe in the wisdom of a tariff
which will protect American labor and aa.pl
tal, I do not come to argue the economio
merits of that policy nor to demonstrate
the folly and the fallacy of the contrary
doctrine. I come to commend, and I hope
to encourage this representative body of
America's business men In their stand
for an Intelligent and scientific basis on
which congress may determine what duties
Shall' be levied on the world's Importations.
' For a century and longer, the industries
of this country have struggled under duties
levied, first, on. a theory of protection and
then, on a theory of revenue, the changes
being made to meet the demands of popular
sentiment; but, during all these changes,
the schedules have ben at all times fixed
snd determined by politicians, sometimes
with the Ik-Ip of statesmen, but always
without the help of- experts. The marvel
Is that the results have been so satisfactory-
I do not use the word 'politician"
In an offensive sense. I do not understlmattf
either the ability or the patriotism or the
statesmanship of the men who constructed
our present tariff law.
Praise for Dingier Law.
The present Dingley law has done too
much for the progress and prosperity of
labor and capital in this country to bring
condemnation in the head of Its distin
guished author. And, when the people now
demand, as they do, thst the schedules of
this law be changed to meet changed condi
tions they do ' not deny nor deory the
material and abundant blessings enjoyed
by them under. Its provisions during the
last twelve years. On every hand, from
the farms' and the factories, we have heard
the glad voice of American labor at work,
employed by American capital.
- The task now before congress Is to
readjust, not to repeal, the Dingley law.
Its policy and purpose must be preserved
and not abandoned. The Judgment of the
American people la for Its rearrangement
In the matter of details and for its rededl
catlon In the matter of principle. It Is
because the retails are so intimately and
Inseparably associated with the principles
and purpose of any Industrial legislation
that every true friend or wise and safe
congressional enactment should be willing
to have the facts on which the details rest
ascertained and reported to congress.
As one who will soon be charged with
the responsibility of helping to revise the
tariff schedules now In force, I confess
my need of information, not as to the pol
icy and purpose, but as to the underlying
and basic facts upon which every duty
must rest if the best results are to be ob
tained. In my Judgment, and I say It with
out Intending to reflect upon my colleagues
or any of them, I am not the only member
of congress In need of information along
There should be no doubt about an early
enactment of congress providing for a tar
iff commission of experts to investigate
and report all of the falcts obtainable re
lating to trade and Industrial conditions
to be used ss a basis for tariff legislation,
lfbelleva there will be enough men In the
next congress, under the leadership of that
brave and brilliant young statesman from
this state, Senator Beverldge, to send such
a measure to the Whit ouse.
