Fight For Lower Rates.
Washington, Aug. 20. Grain men
of the west completed, before the In
terstate Commerce commission, their
description of agricultural distress
throughout the grain and hay pro
ducing states and announced readi
ness to begin their effort to show
that high freight rates were respon
sible for these conditions.
James M. Cassidy and Floyd Wil

Colorado, told the commission that
the industry was threatened with
total destruction through high
freight rates, since the principal
markets were on an average of 1,200

J. P. Larson, secretary of the
Iowa Co-Operative Grain Dealers'
association, testified that where it
had cost from 10 to 12 per cent of
the gross corn crop in his state to
move the crop to market in prewar
times, it now costs from 25 to 29
per cent. He explained the workings
of co-operative elevators in Iowa and
said that prices paid by the eleva
tors were those of Chicago or Min
neapolis, less the freight and han
dling costs. The farmer would get
the benefit of any freight rate re
ductions, he said.

Democrats Fail in Efforts to
Have Measure Recommitted
For Elimination of
Final Vote, 274 to 125
By The Associated Vrean.
Washington, Aug. 20. The repub
lican tax bill was passed late today
by the house after the democrats
had failed in an effort to have it
recommitted for elimination of the
provisions repealing the income sur
tax rates above 32 per cent.
The vote was 274 to 125, with
only a slight split in . the party
Before the vote, Representative
Mondell, republican leader, delivered
a prepared address praising the tax
bill and saying it remained for a
later congress to fully revise the tax
schedules "when we shall have
passed beyond the shadow of the
"In this measure, we have relieved
the burden where it is most clear
ly of an emergency character," he
said, "and relieved it and lightened
it for the benefit of every class and
condition in the nation.
"We have lifted rather than shift
ed the more oppressive and annoy
ing of the war taxes. We have kept
faith and while some will rail against
the measure, for purely partisan pur
poses, it will receive the commen
dation of the great body of the
American people. ,
Mr. Mondell was cheered from
the republican side. Representative
Connally, democrat, arose to ask the
republican leader to show him the
pledge in the republican platform
for the relieving of the taxes on
men of large incomes. Mr. Mondell
tried to get recognition to answer
but the house was in an uproar
which did not end until 3 o'clock,
when the way was cleared for voting
under the plea.
York, rising to a point of privilege,
offered a point of order condemn
ing President Harding for address
ing the senate July 12 on soldier bo
nus to the exclusion of the house.
The democrats forced the first
roll call on Representative Mon
dell's motion to lay the resolution
on the table, which prevailed.

Japan's Reply to
Its Invitation to
Answer Probably Will Be in
Nature of Reiteration of
Country's Position Already
Tokio, Aug. 20; (By The Asso
ciated Press.) Japan's formal an
swer to the American invitation to
participate in the conference on dis
armament and far eastern questions
was discussed by the cabinet yester
day, but it is probable its dispatch to
Washington will be delayed a few
days. At present it is forecast that
the reply will be in the nature of a
reiteration of the position of Japan,
which has been voiced in formal
notes sent to Washington.
Some newspapers profess to be dis
turbed over the expression in the
American note that there would be
discussed "matters which have been
and are of concern," but officials
seem to consider it logical as carry
ing out America's original position
that the powers themselves, either be
fore or at the formal sessions in
Washington, must define the agenda
of the conference.
Pressure continues to be brought
to bear on Premier Hara to go to
Washington. If he decides not to at
tend, Viscount Uchida, Japanese
foreign minister, may be the chief

House Provision to Permit
Home Brewing and Clause
To Prohibit Search of
Recess Plans in Danger
Chlrngo Tribune-Omnhn lira Tfiard Wlrt.
Washington, Ausr. 20. rttti n.
ate and house amendments liberal
izing prohibition enforcement
emerged in a badly shattered state
from the secret sessions of the joint
conference committee which report
ed a complete agreement on the
Campbell-Willis anti-beer bill.
Outstanding features of the con
ference agreement were:
Disappearance of the house provi
sion interpreted as legalizing home
brewing and distilling.
Elimination of the senate provi
sions designed to prevent unwarrant
ed search of automobile, baggage,
and other private property by pro?
hibition agents. ,
Retention of the provision of the
original Stanley amendment adopt
ed unanimously by the senate to
protect private dwellings from in
vasion by prohibition agents, with
out search warrants.
The results of the conference were
viewed as a victory for the radical
"drys." Indignation ran high among
the "wets" and the more conserva
tive "drys." The report was , read
with such amazement that it threw
the entire legislative program into
confusion and rendered recess pros
"Wet" leaders, re-enforced by
some of the less radical "drys" in
the senate made it plain that they
would never consent to the passage
of the bill in the form reported by
the conference committee.
They made no effort to conceal'
their determination to filibuster
against the bill to the last ditch if
they found themselves unable to
muster sufficient votes to reject :he
conference report. They declared
thir intention of holding out indefi
nitely against final action on the bill
if the house insisted on killing the
Recess Plans Threatened.
In view of this apparent impasse,
the chief hope of a recess now Tests
on the possibility that the house may
refuse to support the conferees and
agree to accept the Stanley amend
ment. Another prospect, less promis
ing, however, is that the weary con
gress, bent on taking a vacation, will
refuse to stay in Washington to
wrangle about denying doctors the
right to prescribe beer as medicine
and will go on its holiday without
acting finally on the conference re
port. Two members of the conference
committee did not sign the report.
They were Senator Ashurst of Ari
zona and Representative Dyer of
Missouri. Senator Ashurst openly
bolted the conference and washed his
hands of the entire proceeding after
the conferees decided to torpedo the
Stanley amendment Although an
ardent prohibitionist himself, Senator
Ashurst contended that prohibition
enforcement has run to such excesses
that legislative measures are impera-
tively necessary to preserve the con
stitutional rights of citizens.
Senator Sterling of South Dakota
laid the conference report before the
senate, but made no effort to take it
up today. He probably will ask the
senate to act on it Monday.
