Tho first effect of the now tariff to, which President "Wilson's signature was written last night, waa seen early today when the clerical force at the customs house was Increased by fifteen men In anticipation of one of the busiest days the history of this port In no customs district In the country will there be greater activity during the first few days Of tho tariff than at the port of New Tork, for In the forty-eight bonded warehouses there Is over $MXX,(X worth of goods awaiting withdrawal, Im rorters have been Impatient to get their goods on the market, and It was expected they would attempt to withdraw more than half of this great store at once. There la almost every conceivable thing In the warehouses, but the chief things are cottons, linens, woolens, furs, silks, nuts, leather goods, dried fruits, pickled fish and leaf tobacco. New York bonded warehouses, jammed to capacity with Imports roughly valued at $70,000,000, began today to disgorge themselves as Importers released their products under the reduced rates of the new tariff law, The New York customs house opened an hour before the usual time and with fifteen additional clerks pressed Into service, was to remain open till midnight. Duties wlU be assessed on the basis of the Payne-Aldrlch act, but refunds, where necessary, will be adopted when official copies of the new laws are received. The. situation confronting Importers to day was the reverse of what H was four years ago, when the PaynejAlArlch law became' effective. Then, Instead of holding good's in bond and releasing them, at jreducyd rate's seaVMhllr40fl tdlDort'w'ltk comrrioditlea'on. which higher - fldeyasancilrgr6eTetalasVi consignments came in just in tna mctc of time.

It was estimate! that 5,000 separate ship ments would be withdrawn during the day Instead of the usual 600.

""teel manufacturers were reported here today to be considering a reduction of from f2 to $3 a ton In the price of their - products to meet the lowering of steel duties1 -in effect today under the hew tariff schedule. The possibility of com petition from German and British manu facturers was said to be responsible for the move. WASHINGTON, Oct, 4.-Those who ex pect to find American stores immediately cutting prices because the new tariff bill Is now a law, will be disappointed in the opinion of Representative Undcr- wooa, one oc us auinors. it wm do many months, Mr. Underwood believes, before the effect of the new tariff bill becomes apparent to the consumer. "It Is only competition, caused by the new law, that is going to reduce prices," said Mr. Underwood today. "It will be several months before the effects of the new tariff on commodities is felt and In many cases It may be a year. The effect on wool probably will not show until next spring; the full effect on sugar not for several years." Mr. Underwood left Washington today for AUantlo City for a week's vacation. He is suffering from a bad cold. Order for Preferential Treatment.

Methodist Bishops Differ on Question of Making Transfers WEBSTER CITY. la.. Oct. .-(Special.) The Northwest Iowa Methodist confer ence, in session In this city, today got up against a proposition which caused considerable discussion In the upper Iowa conference last week In Tipton. It Is the matter of barring ministers from other conferences coming into the bigger charges of this conference and of per mitting ministers in this conference from leaving to accept better pastorates In other conferences. And while the con test Is of the very friendliest it Is being vigorously fought out over the specltlo instance of Rev. W. H. Spenco of Fort Dodge, who lias a call from the Cedar Kails church In the upper ibwa confer ence Just now tho unusual spectaole is be ing witnessed of two bishops at the con ference, one on one 'side of tho question and one on the other. Bishop Shepard of Kansas City, who Is presiding over tho deliberations of the conference, in clines toward the view, of keeping min isters from going from one conference to another. He is opposed to the trans, fer or Rev. Mr. Spcnce. On the other hand Bishop Bristol of Omaha, resident bishop of the conference, arrived in tho city to day to appear In bohalf of the Cedar Falls church and champion the transfer of Rev. Mr. Spence. It Is difficult to fore cast the outcome. And to add to the difficulty of the matter, a large dele gation of Fort Dodge Methodists called on Bishop Shepard' In tho afternoon to' ask the retention of Rev. Mr. Spence. At the business session, the supernu merary and superannuated lists were gone over. The following' new ministers were received Into full membership in the conference: Lester Dale, A. J. Trent, Arthur Bottom, L. Mitchell, W. H, Wln- tersteln. The following were taken Into the conference on trial: George A. Moyer, L. E. Wordell, L. G. Gardner, M. L. Metcalf, Otto EX Ellison, Thomas K. Griffith, John L. Ralston. Rev. C. Raymond Dix was discontinued from connection with the conference. ' A col lection was taken for his benefit, how- over. Dr. Craig of Sioux City, president of Mornlngslde college,' was here Friday and was an interested spectator at tha business session. Ho enlivened the ses sion much by rising to object to any general custom of receiving men Into the conference whose educational stand ards are not high. "We cannot afford," said he, "to flit up our ranks with men not up to standard." His position was applauded. Aberdeen Bankers Says Currency Bill Favors Large Banks WASHINGTON, Oct 4.-An .Ineffectual fnMSm'toTVsle of the administration currency bill In the senata banking nnd currency committee - was tnade vby supporters pf the measure to day. Senator Shafroth argued vainly for an agreement to Close hearings on the bill next Saturday, October 11, but re publicans on the committee protested vigorously. Senators Reed nnd Hitch cock, democrats, " who have opposed hurrying the bill, were not present, H. J. Jen'ett, a business man of Aber deen, S. D., appealing before the com mittee declared that small banks In the northwest and in other agricultural sec tions of the country had little or nous of the ninety-day commercial paper made eligible in the bill for rediscount and as a basis for ourrency. He said that the country banker -was forced to carry the farmer for long time loans on paper which woUld receive none of the advan tages of the bill. J. C. Bassett, president of the Aberdeen National bank of Aberdeen said the measure discriminated against national banks and that he would advise stock holders of his bank to leave the national system and take out a state charter If the 111 went Into effect. Members of the 'committee expressed the opinion that it would be possible to reach an agreement to close the hearings on October 16. How long the committee would consider the bill after that date cannot be conjectured, but an effort will be made to report to the senate early In December.

Oct. 4.-Fred Bro kaw, alias Fred Bpley, hold here for ex tradition by the state of Pennsylvania on charges that he robbed a Pittsburgh merchant in a hotel there, was released today by order of a police Judge on his own recognizance. His counsel gave out that they would bring suit against the Pittsburgh chief of police and the Pittsburgh citizen who identified Brokaw's photograph in the Pittsburgh .rogues' gallery as that of the man who robbed him for $5,000 dam ages on grounds of false arrest. The police department here notified the Judge that they were requested by the Pittsburgh police to hold .Brokaw and that the matter was still In the hands of the district attorney there. The court held that there was nothing to show that either zeal or expedition was being used '.to press the case, and that Bro kaw's alibi waa so strong that he ought not to be held unless further evidence against him was forthcoming.

COMMONER PRAISES TARIFF BILL Secretary of State Says it is Much Better Than Wilson Law. KECUTIVE AND CONGRESS Declares October Third Marks -Kco-nomla Kpocli In History of ' the Irenent Genera tion. WASHINGTON, Oct 4.-President Wll son went to the golf links early today, according to his Saturday custom. When he returned to the White House shortly before noon he found many telegrams congratulating him on the signing of tho new tariff bill. With the congratulations came in many cases the sentiment, "Now for currency legislation." In this spirit the president took "up the task of accomplishing the .second, big measure of his administration. At the White House and executive quarters there Is confidence that the currency bill already passed by th house will bo passed "by tile senate and signed by thk president before many weeks. Thb opinion prevails that if the work Is not completed before the December session of congress begins, it surely will be by January 1: Brrnn Prnlacft BUI. Secretary Bryan today endorsed the now tariff law as the best tariff meas ure sfnee-the civil war and predlc,tsd the early passage of the currency bill. Mr. Bryan Issued tnls statement: "The tariff law that went Into force last night Is the best tariff measure since the war and alt who have taken part In preparing and passing It are entitled to great credit. It Is a better bill than we were able to pass twenty years ago and I rejoice that political con ditions are such as to malto the present law possible." "The Wilson bill was compelled to carry a burden that will not fall on the present law and ought not to have fallen on that law. The WiUon law provided for on income tax "which was held un constitutional by a divided Vote, the one majority having been secured by a change of opinion on the part of one Judge between the two hearings of the "The nullification of the Income tax portion bt the Wilson law reduced., ,th,o 'BOTernmTOl,tsifbmeSmmt-.wuXd not; meet the expenses of the government and this compelled' an Increase uf ' Indebted ness that threw on the 'bill an Unde served odium, which, together with the fact that t!e senate deprived the bilf of some of its best features, robbed the party of tho benefit which would ordi narily have come to it from a reduc tion in Import duties. Then,- too, ti bill went Into operation at a time when financial Conditions wcro bad1 and many attributed to the 'law ' the defects for which It wa,s not at ail responsible. Praises Wilson and Congress. "I mentioned the' law nineteen years ago, because it Is the only thing Blnce the war wlthwhlch we can compare the present law. Both economic as well as political conditions make it possible to do now what could not be done then. We have, too, at this time, a united party, which Is a great asset. The presi dent and the democrats of the IioUbb and senate' have been in sympathy and have worked unitedly In the accomplishment of this Important work. They share tho honors together and the honors are suf ficient to give distinction to all who have participated. "October 3 marks an Important epoch In the economic history of the genera tion and I am confident that It will not be long before the country will be able to celebrate a second triumph for the president', congress, the party and the country when the new currency bill passes and receives the president's signa ture."

As a rsult of a bit of history recently uncovered, 'thoy are , takliiK measures to support him. to the .utmost of their ability According to the story the 'campaign all grows out of efforts by a group of Lincoln and South Platte educators to prevent the selection of Dr, .Thomas as president 'of tho University of Arkansas, for which he was favorably considered within the last year. The selection .of Dr. Thomas was practically doctded upon when Arkansas authorities received a battery of letters bearing upon Dr. Thomas in an especially unfavorable light and all signed by prominent edu cators of Nebraska. Negotiations were abruptly halted, It Is said, and in fact were called off by the Arkansas board and President J. A. Kirk land of Vanderbllt university, Nashville, Tenn., was elected to the position for which Dr. ThomaB had been favorably considered at a salary of $7,500 a year. But Just at this Juncture, the Carnegie Institution released a fund of $1,000,000 for the Vanderbllt school for a new medi cal college with the understanding that Dr. Klrkland should be retained as the school's head, 'He was retained In Ten nessee and then negotiations were, again opened with Dr. Thomas, the peculiarly of the situation appealing to the Arkan sas board. They Invited Dr. Thomas to Little Rock for a conference, telling him that the covert attack made upon him seemed peculiar In' the extreme when up to that time there had been nothing but expressions of good will for hlni from the Nebraskans who had been con sulted. .. Dr. Thomas, It Is said, at the confer ence In Little Rock, was permitted to read all the letters sent against him and he found that a small coterie of men In Lincoln and surrounding towns with a leading educator who has since lsft the stato were prominent In opposition to him In secret fashion . He declared that he would not accept the place un der any cloud of this character In view, of his accomplishment in Nebraska, hav ing built up the school at Kearney from Its Inception. There the matter now stands, exoept that it Is understood that Dr. Thomas yesterday while in Lincoln consulted his friends over the matter and one, former Governor Aldrich, advised him that the letter written against him w6uld make the basis for a personal damage suit that would have excellent standing in court.

The child was identified as Lulu Salerno by Mrs. Louise Roebcr, who said she was the grandmother. Mrs. Roeber told the pollco that her daughter, Lulu's mother, had quarreled with her husband, Michael Salerno, a barber at Columbia university, and left hjm a year ago to live with another man. Lulu, she said, was one of throe children and was taken by Mrs. Salerno when the homo was broken up, Mrs. Salerno last left her mother's home, according to the mother, a month ago with two men. One of them, Mrs. Roeber said, was Tony Flshero, ovor whom Mrs. Salerno and her husband had quarreled; the other was Joseph Do Puma, De Puma and Flshora, Mrs. Roeber said, occupied the same flat. It was frdm this flat that the child's body was taken to tho morgue. A general alarm has been Issued for Do Puma's ar rest. The police asserted this afternoon that Mrs. Salerno was living at the flat when the child waa murdered. Mrs. Salerno was hysterical when arrested this after noon. The child's body was brought to the morgue In a macaroni box last night by Ralph Pasqua, an undertaker, who told' a tale of having been coerced at a pistol's point to go to the gunman's fiat and remove the body. In the flat he saw a blonde woman, weeping. When de tectives reached the flat la'ter she was gone and with her the gunman. The theory advanced waa that the little girl had been kidnaped and was being held for ransom. There is no police record, however, of a child 'of that de scription being missing.

With tho success of this year's festlvl tlM behind them, the board of governor are looking ahod to next year. They feel that this should be an Incentive to work harder for tty next year's festivi ties. Secretary J. D. Weaver said at the close of the season! "There should be 3,000 members of Ak-Sar-Ben next year? The success of this year should be an Incentive, to tho, business men of Omaha to get into the wagon and boosjt for "next year.

Just how Ak-Sar-Bon Is -.coming out financially this year the governors can not say yet. No financial statement will ba ready perhaps for a week or two.
