, WASHINGTON, Way 28. A compro
mia tariff plan designed to graduate re
ductions of duties designed "to avoid
I m paring any American industry," was
offered today by Senator Newlands as
an amendment to the house steel bill.
It proposed a 1 per cent reduction ,
January 1 from certain duties and a fur
ther reduction of S per cent on January 1
of each year for four years thereafter
until the total reduction of JG per cent
shall have been made. A nonpartisan
tariff commission of five members ap
pointed by the president would determine
to what products reductions should apply.
L Senator Newlands said today that his
purpose was not to endorse the protec
tion principle, but to recognise that pro
tective duties had stimulated Industries
which must suffer by any radical change.
Senator Newlands pointed out that both
parties had promised a revision of the
tariff and his purpose, he said, was to
provide a graduated reduction with a
brake, so applied as to prevent excessive
Importations asd consequent labor dis
turbances. Injunction in
