Due Care of Wool,
Hides and Coal
Prediction it Made Intermouatain
States' Claims Will Be Recog
nized by the Upper Honse.
(From a Rlsff Correspondent. 1
WASHINGTON. April 13.-Speclal Tele
gram.) Wool, hides and coal. In which Ni?
braskn, Iowa, Wyoming, South Dakota and
Iritfr-mountaln states are greatly Interested,
will be taken care of by the senate tariff
bll. Already Interest In thrte thtee grrat
products has been at work with a view of
ameliorating conditions under the Payne
and Aldrlch bills, and after a canvass of
the senate It seems fair to predict that
the wool schedule will be nearly that of
the Dlngley bill.
The coal schedule wll be a modification
of the Dlngley bll', with possibly 4i per
cent ad valorem, the admlrtlsfratlve fa.
tures of this schedule being eliminated.
This means that that element of alack
which enters Into the coal situation of the
Intermountaln country with partlcuhr ref
erence to Wyoming, Montana and Utah,
will be Ignored and that a flat ad valorem
duty of 40 per rtnt will be charged, as
against the present duty of 67 per cent,
which includes an administrative charge.
If this ad valorem duty of 40 per cent on
coals from the intermountaln sect'ons of
the United States, and which necessarily
affects coals from West Virginia and sta-tea
bordering thereon, be written Into the bill.
It will be satisfactory to coal operators In
the Wyoming basin and elsewhere. This
rate will keep out coals from Canada and
the Crow-Nest country.
On the question of hides, cattlemen now
In Washington predict the senate will put
10 per .cent adlorem duty on this produvt.
While being a decrease from the Dlngley
bill It will be satisfactory to growers of
hldoa. Secretary Wilson stated the other
dty to the committee of cattle growers,
that the .ratio of hide production was aa
five to seven, packers producing five
twelfths and farmers or "Independents,"
seven-twelfths of the hide output In the
United States. With this showing before
the seante It Is believed that Instead of
hides gowlng on the free list, a compromlHe
will be affected of 10 per cent advalorem
With wool, coal and hides protected
even at minimum." said Mr. Hobbs of
Lander, today, "Wyoming and states in
its immediate section will more than "ac
complish In the next ten years', which
seems to be about the life of a tariff bill,
what they have accomplished In the past"

of kidnaping the latter's daughter, Luclle
v.oieoourne, aged 7 years, on a crowded

to trace the pair and the child from ont
of the leading -stores of, the city; where
tne Kretaes took the child, to the room
the had been occupying In the northern
part of the city. From there the three
left in an automobile.
It haa been Impossible for the officers
to learn In what direction the car went
or whether It left the city or who the car
belonged to. It la believed that the
couple are headed toward Canada with the
child, but this belief is not grounded on
any known ' facts. The selsure of the
child was the most sensational of a se
ries of encounters, most of which have
been In the district and supreme court,
in which the mother and the girl's
guardian, F. R. Ensmlnger of Q41manv
have engaged. The latest phase in the
court proceedings was an order issued by
the supreme court giving the temporary
custody of the child to Its- guardian.
The child has a fortune estimated at
$25,000, which was left to It by its father,
the first husband of Mrs. Krels. Ens
