INCOME TAX VOTE ON MONDAY

WASHINGTON, July I.-The maximum
and minimum provisions of the tariff bill
were adopted by the senate today by a vote
of 36 to It. The final action on this amend
ment came at the close of a day devoted
to a lively discussion of the proposed re
taliatory measure, that brought out a great
variety of views as to the advisability of
enacting surh legislation. The provisions
of this measure will go Into effect March
n, 1910, and ninety days must elapse before
president's proclamation applying the
maximum duty of 25 per cent ad valorem.
In addition to other duties provided In the
bill, will be operative.
The duty on tea and coffee, as provided
i the amendment originally reported by
the committee, was, stricken out with the
assent of the finance committee,. The sen
ate also, agreed to vote on the submission
of an Income tax amendment to the sev
eral states for ratification, this vote to be
taken upon the resolution and all amend
ments next Monday at 1 o'clock.
laeome Tax Monday.
The Income tax question was brought up
promptly In the senate today and an agree
ment was reached to vote at 1 o'clock Mon
day afternoon on Senator Brown's resolu
tion providing for the submission to the
states of an amendment to the constitu
tion authorising the Imposition of an In
This agreement Is equivalent to a declara
tion that the senate will proceed with Its
business on the fifth of July, despite the
observance of the holiday everywhere else.
The senators were slow In gathering to
day, and much time was consumed In ac
quiring a quorum. Senator Aldrlch was In
his seat at the beginning of the session,
but most of the leaders of the fight against
his corporation tax amendment were not
so prompt In attendance. Aa soon as the
routine business permitted, Mr. Aldrlch
called up the tariff bill, but before any
progress could be made. Senator Brown
took the floor to press his Income tax
proposition. He asked that a vote be taken
Immediately, but encountered opposition
from various quarters, Senator McLaurlo
being especially antagonistic. After con
siderable debate, the Nebraska senator
agreed to postpone action and presented
the oroDosltlon for a vote on Monday
There was no especial objection, and the
vote was accordingly ordered.
Brown l'ra-ea Haste.
Mr. Brown urged Immediate action, es
peclally because, as he said. It should reach

Senator McLaurln said he saw no ne
cessity for such an an.enomeni, wrwn
would defer the enactment of an .Income
tax law. He thought probably pne-fourth
of the states would decline io ratify this
ctlon by congress, and argued that there

As soon as the agreement to vote was
mde the tariff bill Wis" take'tr'' uD'antJ-'Mr.
Aldrlch presented his 'maximum' ana mini
mum rate amendment.
Mr. Aldrlch Immediately proceeded to
sxmal;i ' the senate's substitute for the
origlnafVn'aifm'ilm arid mlnlmifm provision
of the bill as It passed, the house. ,. The
house provides' for a specified Increase jof
the ratec of duty , on .nuraerous articles
fixed by the-, bill, ni ease- of the failure
of ;-the country from which any given
article should' come- to grant to- the Im
ports from the United States the same
terms given 'to Importations from the most
favored nations. : t.
The senate- committee, on finance pre
sented a complete substitute proyidlng for
an Increase of 25 per cent over the rates
of the Payne-Aldrlch bill against coun
tries which by export bounty or otherwise
discriminate against the United States.
The amendment provided that the ad
ditional rate should go Into effect Imme
diately unless the president should after
March 31. 1910, Issue a proclamation that
no such discrimination exists.
Contain Discriminative Dnty.
The amendment also provided a duty of
5 cents a pound on coffee and 10 rents a
pound on tea coming from the countries
thus discriminating against' the product
of the United States. The measure as
previously reported by the finance com
mittee was further amended to except the
islands of Guam and Tutulla, as well
the Philippines, from Its operation.
Stating that he regarded this provision
as Ihe most Important part of the tariff
bill, Mr. Aldrlch read a statement showing
the maximum snd minimum laws of other
countries. lnce that ststement was pre
pared, he ssld, France had adopted rates
that varied on an average of 60 per cent.
Moving to strike from the amendment
the maximum tariff On tea. Senator Daniel
criticised the proposed legislation as au
thorizing the president to make treaties
with foreign powers without submitting
them to the senate.
"When this amendment is agreed to," he
said, "the senate Is eliminated as a treaty
making power, so fsr aa these commercial
matters are concerned. It la becoming
more and more common to eliminate the
senate from the exercise of Its powers."
Daniel Amendment A greed To.
Senators Nelson, Curtis and Root, speak
Ing In favor of the elimination of the duty
on tea and coffee, Mr. Daniel's amendment
to strike out that provision was accepted
by Mr. Aldrlch and agreed to. Senator
Aldrlch agreed with Mr. Root that there
was no necanslty to ho)d a club ovef The
countries that export these articles to the
Senator Culberson offered an amendment
to make nonpartisan - the appointment of
the tariff commission and to pay the mem
bers salaries of g7.6O0 annually. Mr. Aid
rich said experts were to be selected and
he did not believe politics would be con
sidered by the president In that connection
"From the morning pspers," said Mr.
Bailey, "the director of the census Is
making his appointments for partisan rea
sons. If that ia true it is the first time
.It Jias been done In the history ; of this
country." In view of the report he said
he would not trust the executive author
ity to make the appointments without
some restriction. Mr. Aldrlch said he did
not believe census appointments were be
ing msde for political reasons.
"I know the president of. the United
States too well," he ald. "to believe h
would permit anything of that kind."
Ierlarln the trei-d of the times was
toward nonpartlranehip, Mr. Root said
the very . purpose sought by the Texas
senator would be' defeated by dividing
these appointments between republicans
and democrats. He pointed to the record
of the president as a guarantee that he
would not be Influenced by partisan mo
"We arc untied In our esteem for the
president" said Mr. Money, "but under
the dispensation of Providence he might
die. and -we might have a bad man like
the presiding officer of the senate and
he might make" partisan appointments."
Money Jabs at Aldrlch. , ,
Vice President Sherman Joined In the
smile that became general as the Missis
sippi senator proceeded to show the temp
tation of men to make appointments with
a partisan bias.
"There Is the chairman of the finance
committee," Mr. Money added. "He has
never been charged with being anybody's
good Sunday school boy. He has never
been shot at as an angel."
Mr. Money further declared that he un
derstood the postmaster general was to
appoint tho census supervisors, and re
ferring to Mr. Hitchcock he continued:
"Whatever that distinguished gentleman
may be doing, I ha,ve never been able to
una mm in the Postofrice department. I
have called four or five times to see him
and I have never been able to find him. -My
experience Is the common experience
on this side of the house. I suppose his
political cares are so engrossing that he
has not time to attend to the duties of the
department he Is called to preside over."
The discussion of Mr. Culberson's Amend
ment was Incidental and when It was con
cluded the controversy over the minimum
and maximum provision was renewed.
Says Maslinam Will Prevail.
Senator Shlvely discussed the subject at
length, declaring that the maximum rate
would be the real tariff. The senate fell
Into a discussion of the reasons for the
failure of the senate to ratify the reciproc
ity treaties negotiated under the Dlngley
Mr. Aldrlch contended the treaties had
not. been acted on because a majority of
the senate .was against them. He ad
mitted his opposition to the treaties and
said no one act of his public life had given
him as much satisfaction as his course in
By a vote of 17 to 48 the amendment of
fered by Mr. Culberson was rejected, Mr.
La Follette being the only republican who
voted with the democrats. The amendment
limited to four the - number of members
of any one party whloh might be appointed
experts to advise the president In the
matter of discrimination by other countries.
An amendment by Mr. Gore, substituting
the provision of the Dlngley act authoriz
ing the negation of reciprocity treaties for
the maximum and minimum clause, was
defeated, 16 to 39.
An amendment by Mr. Dolllver, author-li
ng the appointment by the president of a
customs commission consisting of five
members, with extended authority for gath
ering Information concerning domestic and
foreign prices and various matters affect
ing the cost of production In lieu of the
experts authorized by the finance commit
tee's amendment, was voted down, 23 to 28.
Mr. Dolllver said his commission would
have power to make the tariff rates equal
to the difference in the cost of production
In tho United States and abroad. The
time had come, he contended, to provide
for -tariff revision on the scientific plans
that have boen adopted by other great
powers. He would like to create:, a com
mission that would "measure up"' with
the Interstate Commerce commission In
ability to look after foreign commerce as
their Interstate commission looks after In
Mr. Heyburn offered, and Mr. Aldrlch
-accopted for the finance committee, an
amendment requiring ninety days' notice
for the application of the maximum rate
.after the minimum rate has been . In
force. In presenting the amendment Mr.
Heyburn expressed apprehension that as
It stood the provision would cause unrest.
Aldrleh Cites Dleorlmlnatlon, -,
This criticism brought Mr. Aldrich to
hlb feet with a recital of .diHcrlmlnatlona
that have been practiced by foreign gov
ernments against the United . States.
France, he said, had Imposed Its maximum
tariff against the United States and
against no one else. Germany had im
posed various restrictions upon American
meat and other products and about a
dosen other nations had maximum and
It waa to protect the American pro
ducers that this provision had been framed.
Senator Eacnn, approving the Idea, of a
retaliatory provision, said he thought the
method employed should be reversed. The
duties should be fixed, he said, with power
for the president to increase a rate If
this country Is discriminated against. "
Mr. Cummins suggested a substitute fix
ing a penalty of 25 per cent of the exit
ing duty Instead of 25 per cent ad valorem
on countries Discriminating against tho
United States, but It was voted down,
The vote being taken on the maximum
and minimum provision It was adopted,
36 to 18.

ference, he concluded by saying:
'I am convinced that when our revision
has been completed the commerce of the
two countries will reciprocally adjust It
self as it has always done heretofore. In
the meantime I hope that the friendship of
131 years, which has been so advantageous
to France and to' the United States and
to the peace of the world, will not be
chilled by groundless fears that the forth
coming and pending American revision Is
hostile- to .. French -exportation." ;
M. Marthou, after paying a . tribute to
the United. States. and President Taft,. re
called former President Roosevelt's words
to M. Jussersand, the French ambassa
dor: "I can imagine war with, any other
country except France," as an eloquent
expression of the deep and underlying
friendship between the two countries. The
minister said that France could only await
the consummation of 'the, American tariff
with some apprehension, which ' perhaps
must be felt on the other, because both
countries are ultra-protectionists.
"There Is good ground, however," con
tinued the minister, "for equitable and
reciprocal concessions. What we ask Is
not a sacrifice, but only a conciliation of
our Interests. We cannot consider the hy
pothesis of rupture."

President Schurman, In a thoughtful
speech, warned his hearers that there was
less enthusiasm for liberty and the rights
of man In tho United States and Europe
now than there was a generation ago. Ex
perience had brought dlfcllluslon.
"Under popular government, as well as
under monarchies," he said, "man must

crime flourishes; the discontented clamor
for revolution In the hope of the new
Elyslam. Beneath all lies the forces of
anarchism and barbarism.
"The laws todny seem less concerned
about civil and political liberty than about
territorial expansion and colossal armies
and navies, yet they cannot extinguish the
yearning for democratic equality, and
socialism is the Nemesis of outraged Ideal-
Ism against triumphal materialism."
Nevertheless, President 8ehurman' viewed
with great satisfaction the conditions In
the United States, which had not escaped
the conditions of the age, but remained
true to the purposes of the Declaration of
Independence. He considered natural condi
