Taxes tn luxuries s-tar.d ex-
cent for some instances where
they are raised beyond the
' Payne-Aldrl h law figures.
The Sixty-third congress was called
Into extraordinary session on Monday
for the purpose of revising the tariff.
The Democratic tariff measure is de
signed to make good the party's
promise to reduce the cost of living
by removing or sharply reducing the
duties on the necessaries of life and
products controlled by the trusts.
Urged on by PresiJent Wilton they
have added to the free list many of
the products that enter into the
ordinary market basket and slashed
the duties on articles that contribute
to the warmth and comfort of the
workingman and the average Ameri
can. The users of luxuries have been
called upon to assume a burden fully
as large as that laid on them by the
present law and iu addition tbe man
of wealth must contribute more libor
ally than ever to help remove the
burden of taxation on those less able
to bear it.
About J120.000.0U0 of the revenue
needed by the government is made up
by the imposition of an income tax.
All persons having net incomes over
$4,000 and also all firms and corpora
tions and partnerships with an -equal
income will be called on to help nia.it
up the loss. The incomes of the latier
will be subject to a flat tax of 1 tier
cent, but Individuals will be obliged
to submit to a tax of a graduated
Generally considered President Wil
son's tariff bill is a radical downward
cut A'here it concerns the necessaries
of life and products that are con
trolled by alleged monopolies. In re
gard to other features of the bill,
notably the chemical schedule, the
rates are In many Instances higher
than those In the Payne-Aldrich law.
The tariff bill does' away . with the
maximum and minimum clause of the
present lu.v and substitutes for this
system of retaliatian a provision for
reciprocity treaties. It puts the re
lations between the United States and
the Philippines on a free trade basis
and provides for the repeal of the
corporation tax law substituting there
for the income tax.
The most impressive cuts in the new
bill relate to foodstuffs and clothing
and the raw material which is used
In building purposes. The bill contains
a free liBt in which is found these
items: All dressed and prepared
meats, flour, bread, milk and cream,
potatoes, salt, corn, cornmeal and fish.
The most Impressive single cut in
the bill Is that by which raw wool
goes on the free list. It is now taxed
a duty of about 35 per cent ad valorem.
The bill also provides for ultimate free
sugar. It proposes & immediate re
duction of 25 per cent and the removal
of ihe remaining duty in three years.
There have been Important reduc
tions in farm products. Butter has
been cut from 6 to 3 cents a pound,
eggs from 5 to 2 cents a dozen, cattle
from a duty of 27 per cent to 10 per
cent ad valorem, sheep from 16 to 10
per cent, hay 'rom 46 to 26 per cent,
fruit from 27 to 1.1 per cent, lemons
and citrus fruits from 68 to 24 per
cent and poultry from 13 to 6 percent.
One More State Needed.
Senator Bristow of Kansas, author
of the resolution for a constitutional
amendment providing for direct elec
tion of United States senators, de
clared the resolution now lacks the
ratification of only one state to make
It effective... Senator Brlstow's unof
ficial list shows that thirty-five states
have ratified the amendment. He ex
pect that Connecticut will be the
thirty-sixth Hjjtte which will make the
long sought 'rrTorm a reality.

COX ASKS FORJNGINEERS
Wants Government's Aid In Devising
Ways to Prevent Floods.
Acting for the Ohio Flood Relief com
mission Governor Cox sent a telegram
to President Wilson asking that gov
ernment engineers be sent to Ohio to
view the flood-stricken districts and
to devise ways and means of prevent
ing such disasters in future.
The message suggested that al
though the banking Institutions are
giving great assistance to the banks
In the flood districts, the comptroller
of the currency should be placed in
charge of the distribution of relief
funds so that credit may be established
Sad Conditions in Zanesville.
Ad. C. Gumbert of Pittsburg, ac
companied by the Zanesville (O.)
local relief committee, visited the
flooded districts of Putnam and the
Seventh ward. Later he said:
"There are from 8,000 to 10,000 peo
pie In Zanesville who are homeless.
Others have nothing but the bare
walls, water soaked and mud be
grimed, after they get there. I am
preparing a message to send to the
Pittsburg chamber of commerce that
Zanesville needs home furnishings
more than money, that beds and bed
ding, children's and women's shoes,
gas stoves, cots and anything calcu
lated to establish meager comforts of
a home are needed here."
Upon complaints filed by niemberf
of the Ohio national guard, A. Osman:
a West Side (Columbus, O.) under,
taker, whose business place is near
the flood district, was arrested on a
charge of larceny. Two guardsmen
told Chief of Police Carter that Os
man had offered them $2.1 for every
body they might recover from the de
bris if they would turn them over to
the Osman undertaking establishment.
The police allege ' that more than
$.100 had been taken from bodies of
victims sent to Osman's place.
Four more bodies were recovered
from flood wreckage, making the total
of bodies recovered in this city eighty

AGAIN USE TORCH
Another House Burned by the
: Militants in England
"REIGN OF TERROR" STARTED
Latest Outrage Together With Dyna
miting of Railroad Station and Pas
senger Train Has Alarmed England,
The suffraguttes iu England con
tinue their "reign of 'terror." They
burned a large unoccupied house at
Cherleywood in Hertfordshire. Oniy
the walls of the building were left
standing. The usual cards bearing the
legend, "Votes for Women," were
found. Tbe loss is $12,500.
The suffragettes are striving strenu
ously to make good the threats of their
leaders who promised to attack human
life in reprisal for the sentencing of
Mrs. Emmeiine Pankburst to three
years in prison at bard labor.
Their argument for the vote this
time took the shape of alarm clock
bombs such as those used by the Mc
Namara gang in America. At Oxled
station in Surrey on tbe London,
Brighton and South Coast railway, a
bomb of this make exploded, blowing
out the doors and windows of a
An empty London and Northwestern
railway passenger train was torn by
an explosion in a third class carriage
at about the same time that the Oxted
station was being shot to pieces.
The militants have all England
pretty well frightened. There is even
talk among business men of calling
out soldiers to squelch the militants.
The police believe some of the
recent criminal acts attributed to the
suffragettes, principally the attempts
to destroy railway property, were done
by men engaged by the women. All
railway stations and tunnels are being
patroled to prevent damage.
In spite of the fact that she has
been sentenced to three years Mrs.
Pankhurst has promised to be present
at the big suffragette meeting in Al
bert hall next Thursday night. In the
meantime tbe case of Miss Zelie Emer
son, who Is said to be very ill in jail
where she is serving a term of two
months for window smashing, is at
tracting widespread attention.
Her mother, who is a wealthy De
troit widow, besieged Reginald Mc
Kenna, the home secretary, but it was
not a successful argument.
She had written to the home secre
tary demanding that her daughter be
examined by her own physician. "For
Cod's sake, save my daughter," was
the conclusion of her appeal. The
language of her letter angered the
home secretary who sent back a curt
refusal saying that he had word that
nothing was the matter with the
Mrs. Pankhurst almost broke down
when the Jury pronounced its verdict.
Justice Lush in passing sentence
said her crime was a most serious one.
Immediately after the sentence of
three years fell from the judge's Hps
the women In the courtroom broke out
in a chorus of "Shame!" and "Out
rageous!" With Mrs. Pankhurst's de
fiance to the Judge. "I'll fight! fight!
fight!" still ringing in their ears the
suffragists went wild.
Standing on the seats they shrieked
and shouted anathemas at the court.
The polira were powerless. The
Judge's warning that he would commit
the entire party of women to prison
for contempt fell upon deaf ears. They
mocked the judge and laughed at his
threats and they finally left the court
singing the suffragist battle song.
Mrs. Pankhurst's release is certain
and few people doubt she will appear
as she promised at the great meeting
at Albert hall on April 10, when the
suffragettes plan to hold a great meet
ing. There Is reason to believe that
the officials or the Jail will not at
tempt to feed her forcibly. As soon
as she Is hungry enough to get a
doctor's certificate that her health is
in danger she will be released "on
license" for a period which is in the
discretion of the home secretary.

Legislature For Direct Choosing
of U. S. Senators
NOT NEGATIVE VOTE IN SENATE
Anticipating Ratification of Amend
ment McNIchol Intreduces Bill
Providing For Party Nominatior.e.
Pennsylvania has Joined in ratifying
the amendment to the constitution of
the United States which would pnv
vide for the direct election of United
States senators. When a couple of
more states take similar action tho
new method of filling the office will
be In force.
The senate adopted the Jones reso
lution, the measure having passed tha
house several weeks ago. There were
forty votes for the proposition and
none against it. Senator James P. .Mc
NIchol of Philadelphia was in his seat
but did not vote. Senator E. H. Vare
of Philadelphia supported the resolu
tion. Before the resolution was voted
upon Senator McNIchol introduced a
bill to provide the machinery for the
direct election of United States sena
tors. As the federal constitution does
not yet provide for the direct election
of senators, but undoubtedly will do
so before the next legislature meets,
the matter is covered by making the
"Whenever the constitution of the
United States shall be amended so as
to provide for the election of United
States senators by a vote of the
electors of the several states, candi
dates for the office of United States
senator shall be nominated and elected
in the year next preceding the expira
tion of the term of office of the Unit
ed States senator whose successor is
to be elected in the manner provided
by law for the nomination and election
of candidates for the office of gover
nor." Under the McNIchol bill the nomina
tion of candidates for United States
senator would be made in tbe same
manner as governors are nominated.
At present the system is by state con
ventions, The house has passed a bill
to provide for the direct nomination
of the governor by the people. The
indications are that the senate will
not accept this method and the state
convention plan will continue in vogue.
Governor Tener's club license nil!,
sponsored In the house by Samuel B.
Scott of Philadelphia, was defeated on
second reading by a vote of 111 to 77.
There was a stiff fight In the house
on the teachers' tenure of office bill.
After much debate the bill was passed
finally as amended in the house by a
vote of 118 to 6.1. The bill would
provide that teachers who held
permanent certificates and had taught
ten years lu any one school district
should be permanently employed by
the district. The salary or position
could not be changed except by a vote
of two-thirds of the school board.
The Magee bill, designed to put
Pittsburg in a school district of the
second class for the sole purpose of
ripping out of office the fifteen mem
bers of the board of public education
was defeated in the senate. The meas
ure fell because of Its failure to re
ceive a constitutional majority. The
vote was 21 yeas and 16 nays.

under certain conditions, of killing the

Issue to improve state roads Repre
sentative John II. Scott of Philadel
phia persuaded the house to send the
measure back to the committee on pub
Despite the fact that the resolution
was passed by the legislature of 1911
and had been before the people for two
years Scott argued that "some people
wish to be heard on the measure."
Covernor Tener, who Is much Inter
ested In state road building, discussing
the vote In the house, said:
"The action would not have hap
pened had there been a full attend
ance. The enemies of the administra
tion and of good roads took advantage
of a light house and succeeded in
sending the resolution to committee.
A majority of the committee men are
friendly to the resolution and there Is
no doubt In my mind about the legisla
tion being promptly reported. The
friends of good roads In the house
will see that the amendment is agreed
to and put up to the people who must
decide whether the department is to
be created. I am confident, that the
citizens of Pennsylvania are In favor
of the improvement of highways."
