herds do Is Immense. Once a herd of fifty

Duties Have Beea Re
duced. NEW YORK. Feb. It. Senator Road
Smoot of Utah, republican, has1 heard from
democratic sources that pos3lbly the Payne
tariff bill recently enacted might have
something to do alth the advanced cost
of living. He disputed it Indignantly last
night at tha banquet of the 8ilk associa
tion with a defenaa of protection In gen
eral. '
"The tariff bill passed at tha last anssion
of congress," said Senator Smoot, "Is he
best tariff measure ever enacted Into law.
"In America we live In better houses, we
sleep In better beds, we eat mors and better
foods, we wear warmer and belter elodiiig,
our children attend better schools, w- en
joy more of the comforts of life :hn any
other people In any other country on the

the general prosperity of the nation. We
are all alike desirous of 'so safeguarding
our Industries aa to Insure our prosperity.
We have such a safeguard and we call It
"I deny that the tariff act of 1900 Is tha
cauee of the advance In the coat of living.
The greatest advances have been upon
articles on the free list, or upon which the
duties were decreased, or upon which no
advance waa made over the Dlngley rate.
It Is also noticabla that the extreme ad
vances are upon the products of the farms;
kyet the advance received by the farmers
id Insignificant in comparison With tha In
crease paid by the consumers."
Investigation, said Senator Smoot, has
shown that there Is an increase of from
200 to 800 per cent m the price paid by the
ultimate consumer over the cost of manu
facture of many Imported - and domestlo
9rtlc!s. "SfrnethiTi U wrnnf." ha aald.
"In a system of distribution which will al
low such resulta 1 '
"Prices are advancing all over tha world.
In free trade countries as well at In pro
tection, countries. The supply has not kept
up to the demand.".
Representative Phillip Pitt Campbell ot
Kansas supported Senator Smoot In his de
fense of the tariff, and added:
"Ifls said that prioes of farm and food
products are high. They are1 high. That is
one of two things that makes ours the best
market In the world. The other factor la a
high standard of wages for American work
men." " '

LONDON, Feb. 12. Ths terms of ths
king's speech with which the. new Parlia
ment will be opened wera finally agreed
upon at. today's adjourned meeting of the
cabinet. Subsequently the minister dis
persed, several going to the country for
the week-end, so there will be' ho further
conferences before Monday.-
According to an authorised ' statement
given out tonight the cabinet council ar
rived at an absolutely unanimous -decision
on the course of procedure early in the
week. This statement was the outcome
ot numerous rumors of serious cleavage
among tha ministers regarding tha policy
to be followed.
It Is confirmed that after tha passage
ot tha budget a bill limiting the veto of
the lords will be announced as tha chief
legislative work of the year.
It ia understood that Premier Aaqulth
has completed hla cabinet appointments
and only awaits the king's approval to
publish them. Mr. Asqulth will have an
audience with his majesty Monday after
King Edward's return from Brighton.
Redmond Can see Flatter.
The speech of John F. Redmond at the
banquet of the United Irish league In
Dublin last night has caused consider
able fluttering in the liberal press and
party. He Is gently reproved by ths mod
erate section of the press for what Is de
clared to be an attitude calculated seri
ously to embarrass tha government, but
Is warmly praised by the radicals, who
have been urging the ministers to adopt
a stern and vigorous policy towards tha
House of Lords. Mr.. Redmond has re
ceived a Joint telegram signed by three
radical journals, the Nation, the Dally
News and ths Morning Leader. Ths mes
sage says:
"Congratulatlona to you on your mag
nificent atand. The whole fighting fores
of liberalism is behind you."
It Is almost universally agreed that Mr.
Redmond has beet driven to take ths
present step by pressure from tha new
O'Brlenlte party, whose bond of union Is
a hearty dislike of the budget The liberal
editorials remind Mr. Redmond that though
he undoubtedly ean overthrow tha govern
ment Is not likely to gain much by auoh
a course. ' .
Unionists Profess Hops.
Some of the unionist newspapers, notably
the Glasgow Herald, see the possibility
of a bargain wHh the government to get
rid of obnoxious parts of the budget.
They argus that the gnlonlata might sup
port tha government, abould the Irish
member vote against the budget, on the
condition that its objectionable features
be eliminated from the following year's
budget ;
