WASHINGTON, Oct 1 President .Wil
son's signing of the .Underwood-Simmons
bill at 9 o'clock tonight brings Into effect
one of the most far-reaching revisions of
tariff rates and revenue laws enacted for
A now Income tax, applying directly to
tho incomes of citizens; the abolltjon of
all tariff on scores of items of Immense
Important to American industry and1
American consumers and a heavy reduc
tion of tariff rates on most ot the articles
in general use In this country are It's

Tho Income tax probably will bring the'
new tart ft law most forcibly to the at
tention of citizens. President Wilson and
democratic Headers In congress believe,
however, that the reduction of duties on
clothing, foodstuffs and othei; necessaries
of life, and the complete removal of the
duty; from? many like articles, will eventually-
bring a reduction in .the. "cost ot
living" without materially affecting busi
ness prosperity. 'J '
A brief summary- of the new tariff law
as prepared for the senate follows:
