in Tariff Fight
Sewing Machines and Cash
Registers Taken From Free
Lint Rates on Lawn
Washington. June 8 After a (wo
days' fight, the senate voted today
to remove sewing, machine and
rash registers from' the tariff free
list. Committee rates ranging from
25 per cent ad valorem to 40 per
cent on Oiete machines and 25 per
cent on cash registers were ap
At the tame time the senate re
fused to accept the committee rate
of JO per cent ad valorem on print-
ins nresses. lawn mowers and ma
chine toots and adopted, 28 to 27,
an amendment by Senator Robinson,
democrat, Arkansas, cutting that
rate to 15 per cent.
This was the fourth time the com
mittee had been overturned in the
weeks the tariff bill has been un
der consideration. Seven republi
cans joined with tne solid demo
cratic minority in supporting the
Robinson amendment. They were
Borah, Kellogg, Ladd, La Follette,
Lenroot, Nelson and Norris.
Senator Lenroot. one of the lead-
era on the majority side, gave no
tice to the committee that he would
not support it in recommendations
to increase existing ratea in cases
where it was shown, as he said it
had been in this instance, that im
ports were negligible and exports
large. r "
An amendment by Senator Walsh,
democrat, Massachusetts, to restore
cash registers to the free list, ufter
a long discussion was rejected, 27 to
12. Five republicans Capper. Kel
logg, La FoTlette.Lenroot and Nor
ris joined the solid minority in sup
porting the, amendment. A proposal
to restore sewing machines to the
free list was defeated last night.
Calling attention that m the free
list provision of the law, linotype
machines were named along with
sewing machines and cash registers,
Senator Underwood said he could
not understand why the committee
left linotype machines on the free
list, since the amount of labor enter
ing into their construction was much
greater than that entering into the
making of a cash register, ;'

Senator Norris Scores
Schedule on Shotguns
Washington. Tune 8 While the
finance committee majority contin
ued to recede from some of the tariff
rates originally recommended to the
senate, the administration measure
came in for renewed "assaults from
both sides of the chamber.
Proposed duties on firearms which
finally were approved, led to a dis
cussion of wide ranee. Senator
King, democrat, declared thattheJ
sarin measure aireaay was Deing useu
as-a means of advancing prices, 1n
this country. He read from publish
ed reports that the American, wool
en mills had made a second' advance
in prices and- predicted that .these
raises would be extended1 to other
commodities, including :boots, shoes
and cotton. ..
Nebraskan Attacks ,( Duties.
Senator Norris, republican, Ne
braska, discussing the duties pro
posed on shotguns, said the idea was
to put up a high tariff wall behind
American manufacturers so they
could advance prices to. take care of
their losses in invading ih. markets
of the world and drive foreign pro
ducers out of business in their own
countries'. He asserted that this was
not only true with reference to. shot
guns but also with reference to sew
ing machines, paints, steel products
and many other things, included in
the bill. .
The Nebraska senator's speech was
declared by Senator Simmons of
North Carolina, the democratic lead
er in the tariff fight, to be "an in
dictment of this bill and an indict
ment of the principle of protection as
applied here." - : '"--
Subsidy for Trust.
Attacking the bill generally, the
North Carolina senator charged that
it carried a "gratuity" and a "sub
sidy" in every line for the 3,000 or
4,000 "trusts and monopolies" in the
United States. Senator Heflin, dtm-
