Senate Democrats United
For Tariff Dill Provision.
Conference of Minority Senators,
While Not All Harmony,
Stands For Decrease In
Bates on Necessities.
Washington, April 15. Democrats lu
the United States senate will present a
solid front against nny Republican op
position to an income tax for raising
revenue. This policy was agreed upon
at a conference, which also went on
record as favoring a general reduc
tion on tariff schedules, particularly
those relating to the necessaries of
For more than four hours the Demo
cratic members of the senate con
ferred in the effort to agree upon a
policy toward tariff legislation.
The conference was not entirely har
monious. Some of the senators pres
ent admitted frankly that they would
ask for protection for the Industries
of their states. Senator Stone spoke
In favor of his program for Independ
ence for the Filipinos after fifteen (
years and absolutely free trade with
the islands during that period. Sena
tor Foster was opposed to free trade
with' any of the colonies. Neither of
these senators, it was apparent, could
n fnn 'F.l
have obtained a ma,
ocrats for their proposition had a vote
been taken.

reductions in rates all along the line
The conference was adjourned until
tomorrow, as all of those present
agreed that they were not sufficiently
acquainted with the bill to pass Judg
ment intelligently upon it.
Senator Cummins announces that he
will make a fight on the floor of the
senate for a lower duty on iron ore and
pig iron, lumber and coal and some
other Items either Increased from the
Payne bill rates by the senate commit
tee or restored from the free to the
dutiable list.
Senator Cummins' amendment Is in
two parts. The first authorizes the
president to suspend the rates Imposed ;
IW me uriiuira ui ujr I'uuiiujr itjiuniiin
to grant a reciprocal concession or to
suspend the rates on specified articles
imported from that country nnd to '
levy against those articles a duty of ,
125 per cent of the rates imposed In '
the senate bill as punishment. Articles ;
on the free list under the same condi
tions shall be taxed 20 per cent ad va
lorem. In this connection the rates of
the senate bill will be the minimum.
In view of all the criticisms made of
the tariff bill as amended by the
finance committee of the senate, par
ticularly the qbservatlon that the bill
will not produce sufficient revenues for
the country's need, Senator Aldrlch
will undertake on Monday to satisfac
torily explain the revenue features of
the measure.
It will be pointed out that the esti
mate of revenues to be derived from
the operation of the Payne bill made
by the ways and means committee
falls short of the actual possibilities
of the measure. The senate commit-1
tee on finance had the benefit of the
advice of the best experts In the gov-,
eminent service, and from an analysis
which they made of the house bill they I
nruil Intnfl tliuf tlm rni-nmioe wnnlrt t
have been far greater under that meas
ure than were estimated.
These experts take the position also
that the bill as amended by the sen
ate will raise a great deal more money
than appears, and Senator Aldrlch has
not changed his mind on the subject
that no additional internal taxes will
be required to supply the government's

Turkish Conservative Re
ligious Element.
Constantinople, April 15. The
Turkish conservative religious
ment appears to have obtained the up
per hand for the present. The rule
of the Young Turks' committee of
Union and Progress has been upset,
and iiinuy members of this committee
have disappeared from the scene.
Ahmed Rlza, the dethroned presi
dent of the chamber, and several other
men prominent In the party have tied
the country.
In accordance with the demands of
the mutineers Ismail Kemal has been
elected president of the chamber, but
only nbout sixty deputies were pres
ent at the ceremony. Ynver Pasha
has been appointed commander of the
First nrmy corps In succession to'
Mnhmud Pasha, who has been dis
missed. The members of the new cabinet
have been Installed In office. Imme
diately after the ceremonies, which
were followed by the reading of an
imperial proclamation ordaining tlie ob
servance of the Sherl laws and the
preservation of the constitution, the
troops surrounding the parliament
building dispersed quietly and return
ed to their quarters. On their way
they fired volleys from their rifles as
a sign of rejoicing.
The new cabinet Is as follows:
Grand vizier, Tewfik Pasha; minis
ter of
war, Edhem Pasha; minister of (
Vice Admiral AUjiemin rasnaji
minister of the interior, Adil Bey; min-i
later of justice, Hasan Fchnil Pasha;
minister of llnnnce, Nury Bey.

ish marines In the European quarter
Is causing growing apprehension. The
men are In ugly mood, and they lire
their rifles every few ynrds. Many
casualties from stray sho'ts have been
Detachments of sailors came ashore
to join the mutineers. The panic
among the people increased. Bands of
soldiers, accompanied by religious stu
dents nnd the dregs of the population,
were parading the streets of Pera and
Stambul, the two principal quarters of
the city, with fixed bayonets.
Tlie troops celebrated the overthrow
of the Young Turks by firing continu
i ous rjfle volleys. This alarmed the en-
i Hn iinmilntlnn of the cltv.
, The sultan granted practically all the
demands or tne riotous troops name-
i Iv. the adoption of the Sherl laws as
the basis for new laws; the dismissal
of the grand vizier, the ministers of
war and marine and Admed Rlza, pres
ident of the chamber, the latter to be
replaced by Ismail Kemal, provisional
leader of the Liberal Union; the re
. moval from Constantinople of Hussein

The casualties resulting from the
rioting include Nczlm Pasha, minister
of justice in the late cabinet, who was
mistaken for Rlza -Pashn, minister of

Chicago, April 15. The appeal of
Pittsburg bakers to Secretary Knox to
stop manipulation of wheat has arous
ed James A. Patten of Chicago, popu
larly supposed to control the present
wheat market.
"In the first place," said Mr. Patten,
"I don't control the market. My lino

Western Athletes Will Race to the Top
of a 6,000 'Foot Mountain.
Pasadena, Cal., April 15. Crack ath
letes from all over the west arc en
tered In today's race to the top of
Mount Wilson, north of this city. Tho
unique character of tho event and Its
j great success Jast year have aroused
much Interest among the sports and
others attracted by endurance contests
and have drawn here runners desir
ous of making the 0,000 foot ascent In
quicker time than that mado by Joe
King last year. There Is little doubt
that King's record, 1 hour 25 minutes
30 seconds, will be broken today.
Last year's race consisted of tho
ascent to the top of the mountain and
the descent, but this year the ascent
alone will count. The descent is con
sidered too dangerous for men trying
to make time. On the way up and.
down Mount Wilson the runners cross
numerous streams and wind around
canyons over 3.000 feet deep.
At least thirty men will face the
starter and will be sent away at In
tervals of three minutes. Only ama
teur athletes are eligible to enter tho"
race. The winners will receive med
