Outlining the purpose of the bill,
the report said the committee had
endeavored to recommend rates
that would afford protection to
American indtiDtrtt and permit them
to pay mkc sufficient to enable
the workmen to maintain an Ameri
can i standard of living, nnd also
rate sufficient to "maintain essen
tial ' industries created as a .rettlt
of the war and considered vital
to the future industrial independence
of the Ameriran people."
Face New Conditions.'
"In attempting to iix rates of
tinned, "your committee was faced
witlr a' condition never before ex
duty' in this bilt," the report con
pcrrenccd ' in tariff legislation. In
certain foreign' countries high cost
of production existed to such an ex
tent that a duty which would alTord
protection upon imports from such
countries would be entirely insuf
ficient to afford protection from
countries having low production
costs.- On the other hand, the im
position of a rate sufficient to afford
protection from countries with low
production costs would be an abso
lute embargo on the products of
countries having-' production costs
nearer our own.
"The rates imposed by this bill
are sufficient to protect the Ameri
can market and preserve domestic
competition,1 and at the same time
will permit fair competition from
Taking1- up what was described
as the "need of tariff revision" the
committee majority, said, in the limit
ed time before the war, that the "low
rates' of the Underwood law were
iu effect- those rates which "had
caused a retrenchment in production
of American products and' had de
cided the purchasing power of the
American workman because of re
duction" in wages," It added that
"the outbreak of the war was' the

the report said, "the quotations madi
by foreign producers for txport sale
of late have been o extremely low
that they threaten Uie destruction of
American iudii.tric and have con
sequently demoralized AmerSran
trade." It added that "this condition
exists at the present time and it i
believed will continue to exist unj!
rates are established that will af
ford fair protection to American in
dustries." Before its presentation in the sen
ate, the bill was formally approved
at the first meeting of the entire
committee since the work of draft
ing the measure was started three
months ago. Democratic members
of the committee present voted
against it and were given 10 days in
which to prepare their minority re
port and also for the fight which
the.v plan to launch against it im
mediately after it is called up.
Secrecy is Charged.
The charge of secrecy in the pre
paration of the bill was raised
promptly- in the senate from tho
democratic side. - Senator Harrison
of Mississippi called attention th'at
ths bill was introduced today during
an executive" session ' of the-' senate
"It was perfectly ' natural that it
should be donefini secrecy. Every
thing else about it has been done in
Opposition will not be confined to
the democratic side. Senator Smoot,
Utah, ranking republican on. the fi
nance committee, plans to take the
floor in his fight. for duties' on sugar
higher than the 2 cents a pound on
full duty and 1.60 cents a pound on
Cuban raw, which are now in force
in-the emergency tariff and which
the' committee has recommended..
Immediately after the bill was in
troduced - the- effort to raise the 7
cents a pound on long- staple cot
ton, now in the emergency law and
approved by the; committee,, was
launched,- Senator- Cameron, repub
lican, Arizona, introducing' an
amendment to make the rate IS cents,
the figure urged by producers of this
cotton in his-and othef' southwest
ern states, and by" the republican
agricultural tariff bloc. The short
staple 'cotton is retained on the free
list ' but' opposition is promised to
some of the "rates: proposed on cot
ton goods, -which irt' some' instances'
areJ higher than thse in the Payne
One : of the ' principal schedules in
the" new bill is that dealing" with
agricultural products. It includes
most' items' of ' foodstuff,' many' of
which were' on the' free 'list in the'
Underwood bill, and includes a -duty
of 30 cents a bushel on wheat asunder
the emergency law, but 5 cents-
higher than proposed in theFordney
bill. The compensatory duty on
flour was placed at 78 cents per 100
pounds, as compared to- 50 cents
in the' February bill and 25 pef cent
advalotehi. in the" PayneiAldrich
In framing-this schedule, the com
mittee majority gave1 the republican,
agricultural bloc about the rates
asked for but the committee experts
said that with few exceptions the
duties; wouldnot exceed 25 per cent
Explaining the' schedule in its' re
port, the majority said it had adopted
the policy of giving ' tof agriculture
the measure of protection that has
been accorded - to . other industries
with due considerations to the needs
of all sections and' of all industries,
i Besides the provisions to take caro
of the dye and glass industries ' de
veloped during. the' -wax, the corn--
mittee majonty sought to give pro
tection to. other wartime-industries.
It provided' for a duty of 70 per
cent ad valoterrH-doublethe Payne

With a: view to developing' the
potash industry in California, Utah
and other western states by protect
ing" it from the Germans, the com
mittee recommended that for a peri
od of five years tduties be placed on
the actual potash in' potassium chlor
ide and all crude potash salts, etc:,
For' the first two years 2 l-2c a

Explaining the proposed duty of
5-1 6c a pound on crude magnesite,
which was on the free list in the
Payne-Aldrich and Underwood acts.
tho committee majority said the pur
pose was to enable producers ot this
material in Washington state to lay
down their product at the steel mill"
centers of the country on an equality
with imported magnesite.
Many changes in the' administrative
features of the house bill were made
by the senate' committee' majority,
the most important being the elimina
tioir of provisions giving the presi
dent authority to enter into re
ciprocity terms with toreign coun
