WASHINGTON. July 17 President Taft
will win hla fight (or free, or reduced rate
of Jul)- on, raw material.
Nearly every member of the conference
on the tariff bill conceded thla today. The
Indication arc that when the new tariff
till becomes a law the rates on the article
Milch the president desired to come In fraa
(".ill be aa follows:
Iron ore, free; present duty, 40 cents a
Oil, free; now protected by a countervail
Hides, 7H per cent; present rate, 15 per
Coal. 4!i cents a ton; present rate, 67
cents a ton.
Lumber, probably $1 IS a thousand for
rough, with senate rates for finished
product. This woulld mean a material re
duction throughout the lumber schedule.
Taft Convinces Them.
When the conferees transferred to the
president's shoulders the responsibility of
putting; the foregoing raw materials on the
free list It was not believed he would meet
wl(h much success In bringing about a
changed sentiment In relation to these
articles. For several days, however, mem
bers of congress have been going to the
White House, and not a few of them came
away convinced that the president was
right In Instating that all of these articles
could stand lower duties.
It was not believed he would be able to
put hides, lumber or coal on the free list,
but It was acknowledged that any reduc
tion In rates of the pending bill on these
articles would amount to an administra
tion triumph. In effect the president
was told by the conferees that If Iron ore,
oil, coal, hides or lumber were put on the
fr e list or the rates reduced below the
figures adopted In the senate he would
"have to get the votes."
It was recognised that It would be Im
possible to put hides, lumber and coal on
the free list, If the conference report was
to be adopted by the senate. Neither was
It believed rates on these articles could be
Nfh j;HnaA.D( gent meat.
That a change of sentiment had taken
place lr. thu senate in the matter of free
Iron or and fret oil was a matter of com
mon ttOHnlp about the rapltol today. It
was stated Jut as confidently that the IS
net cent ad valorem rate on hides would
have to be cut In half, althougu some I
opponents to the proposition of putting!
hides on the free list are still hopeful of
retaining a rate as high as 10 per cent.
Coal at 45 cents a ton, It waa declared,
would piove satisfactory to every section
except Wyoming, which fears that the In
dustry in that state might be ruined by
cheap Canadian onl. Two railroads are
now building ftom northwestern states to
Canada, which will tap the Canadian coal
fields. Senator Clark and Representative
Mondell of Wyoming are protesting against
any reduction from tne present rate of t7
cents a ton, I'l spite of the fact that the
senate adootsd a tiO-ccnt rate.
It Is understood that the 45-cent rate. If
adopted, will provide for no change In the
existing rate of 15 cents a ton on slack,
but that the Elklns amendment providing
that this rate shall apply only to natural
slack, shlppod fir such at the mines, will
Taft Wins for Philippines.
President Taft will win another decided
victory In tha Philippine free trade pro
vision. The subcommittee, which has been
considering this section, has derided to
permit the free admission of 150,00,000 ci
gars annually as requested by the presi
dent, Instead of 70,000,000 as would be ad
mitted under the senate, amendment,
adopted at the Instance of Mr. La Follette.
It is expected that the Philippine section,
as approved by the subcommittee, will be
adopted by the conferees Monday. It pro
vides for the free admission of SOO.OOO
pounds of wrapper tobacco, 1.500,000 pounds
of filler tobacco and SOO.OOO tons of sugar.
With the exception of lice and the limi
tation placed upon tobacco and sugar, ail
articles "the growth, product, or manu
facture of the Philippine Islands" will be
The Inclusion of the words "or manufac
ture" Is the subject of criticism In many
quarters. Many members of congress think
they would make It possible to ship raw
materials Into the Philippine Islands for
manufacture with cheap labor, and then
bring them to the United States free of
duty. As originally adopted by the house,
and later Introduced In the senate, the
Philippine section contained a provision
requiring that manufactured article. In
order to 6btaln the benefit of the free ad
mission Into the United States should not
contain Ingredients other than products of
Bond laano Authorised.
By action taken today the tariff conferees
settled the quejtlon of giving the secretary
of the treasury authority to Issue fifty-
year bonds at a rate of Interest not exceed
ing S per cent, to cover the entire cost of
purchasing the site and constructing the
Panama canal. An amendment to the tar
iff bill giving the authority waa prepared
by Secretary McVeagh, and delivered to
Representative Payne at the Treasury de

This flight Is not only Curtiss' best, but
Is the longest made with an aeroplane In
America this year. The cup for which the
aviators tried was offered for the longest
flight of this kind during the current year,
the only condition beitig that the winner
must cover at least twenty-five kilometers
over a measured course before judges of
the Aero Club of America and land within
100 meters of the starting point. Curtiss
came to earth today barely within the re
quired distance, but the Judges decided
that he had complied with all the terms
of the competition.
He will win the Scientific American cup
which he captured last year at Hammonds
port. N. T.. unless his flight Is excelled
before the end of the year.
The flight, although made at an early
morning hour, was witnessed by 2.000 peo
ple Curtis rose easily and circled the
course at a variety of altitudes. At times
his speed Increased to 45 miles an hour,
but the average for the whole distance was

CHICAGO, July 17 Dr. Rudolph Menn
of this city tonight declared that Baron
Oskar Rothschild, the youngest son of
Baron Rothschild of Vienna, had killed
himself because of his family's opposi
tion to his marriage with Olga Menn,
the . physician's young and beautiful
The doctor told of his daughter meettng

In Chicago with a party of friends on
their way to Europe from the orient alx
weeks ago. A friend of the nobleman's
waa taken HI and was sent to the Ger
man hospital. Iir. Menn Is a staff .phy
sician. The baron met the doctor's
daughter, and from that first meeting
they were together much of the time
that the young man was In Chicago.
Not more than ,a week after meeting
Miss Menn, tha doctor said, Rothschild
proposed marriage. He was accepted and
left soon after for Vienna, with the prom
ise that Miss Menn and her mother would
follow. He expected that hla father would
not consent to his marriage with an
American girl, but hoped that the young
woman's beauty Would win him over. The
baron cabled to his father, but the reply
was not enthusiastic. Young Rothschild
then wanted to marry Miss Menn at once,
but Dr. Menn refused to allow this, and
the baron sailed for Europe to plead with
his father. A short time ago the girl
and her mother sailed.
Baron Albert Rothschild will meet them
and take care of them until Dr. Menn can
reach the other side.

Police Judge Crawford'a decision on the
Dlnuzzo case, which he read in court
Saturday morning, began as follows:
"This case Is Submitted upon a question
of law. The evidence, uncontradicted,
clearly shows that th defendant sold
liquor after 8 o'clock p. m., on the 10th of
July. The defense rests upon the contention
that the law is unconstitutional and that
for two reasons, first, that the 8 o'clock
law Is by Its terms an amendment to sec
tion 14 of the Slocumb law and 1b not ger
mane to said section; and, second, that It
Is amendatory of section 25 of that law,
without referring to or repealing said seo

deciolon as follows:
"By this case, so thoroughly and skill

upon the two propositions presented In the

clusion that th $ o'clock law la germane
