AHIUNUTON, April ll.-The estimate of the revenue which the Payne tariff bill' will produce for the. goveinment have been reduced nearly I'.UOttMVO through the amendments made to the measure tvfora It was pawed by the house, and the senate finance committee will have to provide liioRitn for making up this difference If the original estimates arc to bo met. The Bulking out of several countervailing duty clause on which no rtlmatea were made probably will lessen the bill's productlvc ns another IL'0.000,000. The amendment taking oft the 8-ccnt duty on a aubtracted I7.0nu.000 from the esti mated revenues. The striking out of the countervailing duty on coffee and the maxi mum duty provision for a rate of 20 per cent ad vvlnrem on coffee coming from countries which do not give the United Ktates the benefit of their moet favored nation clause, disposes of what probably would be $18,000,00 In duties. Taking out tho countervailing proviso for lumber and for petroleum, two amendments made by the house, means a lost oppor tunity to Increase the revenues by several million dollars, It Is estimated. By repeal ing the manufacturers' license tax for formers desiring to sell the leaf tobacco which they raise, the house has withdrawn conlsderable revenue under the Internal revenue law. A slight Increase In revenue may be provided by the Increased tax on Turkish filler tobacco, pineapples and barley and barely malt. Klflr Amtsanesti Made. The senate finance committee materially reduced many of the schedules of the Ding ley bill as It passed the house, but In order to Increase the revenue producing power of the Payne bill the oommlttee will have to take different action with regard to the latter measure. The fifty or more amend ments, all of which were offered by the ways and means committee, have added a few more changes to the Payne bill aa compared, l9.thj. present tariff law. In If? the senate Committee placed a duty ' of 14 cents per pound on hides, which was later changed to It per cent ad valorem, a rt now stands. The Payne bill, aa it passed the house, like the Dlngley bill when II went to the senate, places hides on the free list. Under the Dingley law. hides have produced a revenue exceeding V,,000,000 annually. Maximum and Mlnlmam Feature. Throughout Its various provisions, In fi'irn. phraseology and rates of duty, there are many change In the Payne bill as It stands today from the provisions of the Dlngley law. Its maximum and minimum retaliatory feature, the additional method of valuation for the purpose of preventing iimler-valuatlons, and Its provision for the f iflno,ftoo Issuance of Panama bonds and a SioO.tKO.ON) Issue of treasury certificates, are new. It extends the drawback so that do mestic raw material may be used In lieu of other material fur the purpose of col lecting a drawback, provided an equal amount of Identical Imported raw material Is manufactured Into the same product upon which the drawback Is collected. An In heritance tax, by which It Is hoped that iL-O.imn.flOO will be collected, is provided for. The internal revenue law Is expected to produce tl.Sw.OOO additional revnue because of the increase In the tax on cigarettes. The I wo Increases over the Dlngley rates that aland out most prominently In the Payne bill a-e those In the rates on wom en's and children's gloves and hosiery. Cocoa, which Is now Imported free of duty, has been made dutiable at the rate of 3 iints a pound. I'nmanufactured mica has been reduced 1 cent per pound and the man ufactures of mica have a duty levied upon them t cents per pound less than the Dlng ley rates. The duty on manufactured ha lites has been doubled. loatala Many Reduction. The Payne bill contains many reductions from the Dlngley rates of duty. The duties on lead ore and pig lend are materially reduced, while the lumber schedule Is cut In half. The differential on refined stigsr Is reduwd S cents per luo pounds, Cot tonseed oil and tallow are placed on tho f fo1 list, aa well as licorice paste, fence posts and kindling wood. Provisions for the free entry, under certain conditions, of bituminous coal, wood pulp and agricul tural machinery have been Incorporated. The duty on print paper, upon the recom mendation of the house Investigating com mittee, was considerably reduced. The most Important changes made In the wool schedule was the reduction of 5 cents In the duties on shoddy and top-waste, and change from an ad valorem to a specltlc duty on tope, the general effect heitig a slight reduction. A concession to those who urged that works of are be placed on the free list mas made by permitting the free entry of objects of art at least twenty years old. Iroa and Steel Redared. The Iron and steal schedules are distin guished through a general cutting In the duties. Iron ere Is placed on tho free list and material reductions are made In the rates on pig Iron, scrap Inn and steel bar Iron, round Iron, blooms, structural iron forging, anchors, cotton ties, steel rails, tin plates, wire and numerous other arti cle. One of tli meet Important provis ions of the bill Is the Philippine free tr-tae provlaton, which permits the free entry of very product of the Islands, except rice, and exempts from duty any articles Im ported from tha t'nlted StaUs into those Islands. The amount of sugar whl h may be Imported la limited to ,0i tons an nuslly, and the free Importation of to bacco is restricted to SW 000 pounds of wrapper, J.OW.Ouo pounda of tilier tobacco and U.uuO.uuu clr. Many Omahans believe they have for tunes In sight because of Investments In North Dakota lands, should the govern ment popularize the Internal combustion motors with which It has been experiment ing and now declares will succeed the steam engine as a means of generating power. The Omahans bought the land, most of which Is In the Little Missouri country, because It will grow wheat, and now they have found the lignite coal with which the prairies are undcrlayed. Is to be used for making gas. and their holdings may be wanted shortly for conl mines. Among the Omahans who have Invested arc J. W. Thomas, Dr. J. B. Whittseker, George F. Gilmore, Charlotte F. Fraisher, Mrs. H. M. Heller, C. J. Green, John Nich olson, Thomas Matters. Ralph W. Brecken rfdge, H. H. Baldrlge, Dr. A. N. Anderson and W. A. DeBord. Most of tho Omaha land owners, who may become coal miners, own a section of the land, some of them more. In the vicin ity of these lands is the largest seam of lignite in the northwest, being forty-five feet In thickness. The government declares that In the Internal combustion motors a ton of North Dakota lignite will produce the same number of horse-power for the same number of hours as a ton of the best bituminous coal In the world will pro duce with an ordinary steam boiler and engine. At 6 or 10 cents per ton the lignite on some of the farms owned by Omahans makes the land worth J150 to J 200 per acre. Lignite sells In North Dakota for $1 to 1.30 per ton, though almost every rancher In the Little Missouri river country has a coal mine or his own and the farmers who use steam plows, plow up the coal with which to fire the engines. The government says there sre 500,000,000,000 tons of the llg nltc coal In North Dakota, much of which Is along the Missouri river. The electric light plants and pumping stations In the largest towns of North Dakota are fired with lignite and the 800 line has fired loco motives with It. Special Train tor Minstrels Al G.

A fortunate shift of wind saved tho pub lic library and the fashionable Curtis ho tel. In the hotel there were several eastern parties from New York and Boston. The loss of life occurred In the Clifford build ing, where the blaxe started, and resulted primarily from a series of explosions among the turpentine, paints, oils and dynamite stored in the cellar. The death of Miss French was one of the pitiful tragedies of' the" fire. While the blaxe in the Clifford block was at its height a woman was seen to climb out of a flame filled room onto a veranda on the second story with her night clothing and her hair ablaxe. Staggering to the railing the woman leaped to the sidewalk beneath, landing in a heap within five or six feet of the blazing walls. Some of the horrified onlookers at tempted to rush In to drsg her out, but the Intense heat drove them back and not until the flames had practically died out was the body recovered.

COLONEL CODY IN WASHINGTON He Talk Enthusiastically of Pros pects of Western OH Field and Benefit of Irriga tion Project. (From a Staff Correspondent.) WASHINGTON, April 11. (Special. -For some time tho government has been cast ing about for a railroad which would give It the best rates on seventy car loads of exhibits from Washington to the Alaska-Yukon-Paclflc exposition at Seattle. Not less than thut number of freight cars will be required to transport the national capi tal end of the government's display and It means a whole lot of money for freight. Being more or less canny Uncle Sam de cided to ask the railroads to offer special rates on the whole outfit, but he very soon found that he was up against one of his own laws and that anything less than the publlsl ' tariffs would land hltn among the ' rehaters" and other undesir ables. Wherefore, Uncle Sam will be com pelled to pay the regular rnte and no more ask for special privileges. The first rain load of exhibits Is now being made up and will soon be on its way to the Pacific coast. Thirty days will be required for the transportation. The gov ernment buildings at the exposition are now completed and ready for the Installation of the exhibits as soon as they arrive. In the history of our expositions the govern ment has never yet failed to be ready with Its buildings and exhibits on the opening day. ' The Philippine exhibit, which will be exhaustive. Is now on Its way from Manila In two government, transports. The Ha waiian exhibit, which was assembled by the government and augumented by the Honolulu business Interests, will be ready to ship next week. The Alaska exhibit has been dribbling Into Seattle for six months past and now( is being moved out on the exposition grounds. Much of the Alaskan display from Interior points haa been brought out over the winter trails by dog teams and other northern conveyance. Notable among the exhibits thus trans ported was JS.ftno.flnn In gold dust from Dawson, Fairbanks, Nome and the Susltna country.

King Democratic Members Will Be Called Into Session Today. MONTH'S DEBATE IS EXPECTED Measure Will Probably Be Ready for Conference in Thirty Days. ATTITUDE OF THE MINORITY Few Set Speeches Will Be Made and Democrat Will Probably tontine Their Kfforta to Amendments. WASHINGTON. April ll.-The senate will begin Its consideration of the Payne tariff hill early this week, and because of the large number of changes which have bon made in It by the senate com mittee on flnsnce. It probably will hence forth be known as the Payne-Aldrlch bill. It Is cxrwtert the measure will be re ported tn the senate on Tuesday, but the day cannot be definitely fixed until after a. meeting of the full committee on finance tomorrow. The bill, aa originally Intro duced in the house by Mr. Piiyne. lias been under consideration at the hands of hMh tho majority and the minority members of the finance committee ever since tha day It was presented, but so far there has not ben Joint meeting to consider It. As is usually the case in (he preparation of tariff bills, the republican majority haa assumed the right to Indicate the senate's attitude toward the bill, so that whatever amendments may be suggested when It Is returned to the senate will be the result of their labors. The calling nf the democrats Is largely in formality so far as the schedules are con cerned. They will, however, be asked to go over the work of the majority mem bers, and If for any reason they should ask delay a day or two It probably would bo granted. In all probability, however, they will make little or no objection to the reporting of the bill by tha repub licans. ' Kew Set "perches. It Is not rxpected a great many set speeches will bo made In the senate, while not accepting the protective principle, the democratic members realise the measure will be passed, and they are not disposed to cause unnecessary dolav. Consequently mi st of the discussion by tha democrats wUI be ' upon the merit of amendments which will be offered. Borne of them will, however, demand considerable time. "The general policy of republican member will be to do little talking. Tha prevailing opinion is that no less than a month will be required for consideration of tha bill by the senate. The house will have a period of leisure and while the senat Is wrestling with the tariff bill the lower body will meet only on Mondays and Thursdays. When tho census bill, as passed ay the senate, will receive attention, but little or no other business will be undertaken. Speaker Cannon will begin to prepare for the ap pointment of the house standing commit tee, ' which probably will be announced prior to the final adjournment of tho ex tra session.
