CONFERENCE MAY TAKE A WEEK
Fraternal Societies, Loan Associa
tions and Labor and Religious
Organizations Exempted From
the Corporation Tax.
Washington. July 7. The tariff bill
having been completed In the commit
tee of the whole, that measure was
reported to the senate so that legis
lation providing for customs duties is
now regarded as tin the home stretch.
That the conferees on the tariff hill
will conclude their work In less than
n week, probably within three dnys,
is snld to have been a prediction that
I'resldent Tuft made before ho loft
In support of the ncouracy of his
prophecy It is asserted by a man who
discussed the tariff with him more
than two weeks ago the president pre
dicted at that time that the bill would
go Into conference on July it.
The Dlnglev bill was In conieronce t
nl.n., hr.. wool:, it Is known that i
the members of the house who nro
likely to bo selected as conferees have '
been' studying the schedules amended
by the senate, the corporation tax and
the other subjects that will come up
for consideration In conference, but It
lias boon supposed that the differ
ences of opinion on various schedules
would prevent an early agreement on
tho bill In conference.
Itofore the committee of the whole
finished with the tariff bill the fol
lowing nmeudmeut to the corporation
tax was passed:
"Providing, however, that nothing in '
this section contained shall apply to
fraternal bonollciary societies, orders ;
or associations operating under the
lodge system, including labor organiza
tions, and providing for the payment
of life, sick, accident and oilier ben
efits to the members of such societies,
orders or associations and dependents
of such members. Nor to domestic
building and loan associations organ
ized and operated exclusively for the '
mutual benellt of their members.
"Provided, further, that the provi
sions of this section shall" not apply to
any corporation or association organ
ized and operated for religious, charlta- ,
hie or educational purposes, no part of !
tho profit of which Inures to the ben
efit of any private stockholder or indi
vidual, bul all of tho prolit of which is '
in good faith devoted to the said re- ,
llglous, charitable or educational pur- '
Provided, further, that the provi
sions of this section shall not apply to
Incorporations or associations of fra
ternal orders or organizations designed
and operated exclusively for mutual
benellt or for the mutual assistance of
The words exempting labor organlza-
tlons by name were struck out of the
amendment by tho llnauco committee,
but on the demand of Senators La Fol
lctto and lleverldgo were restored.
Attention is now being given to tho
selection of the conferees on the part
of tho senate and of the house, whoso
duty It will be to attempt to bring the
two bodies Into agreement on tho tar
Gossip luis it that Senator Aldrlch
will select, besides himself, as the rep
resentatives of tho lEcuhllcaus in the
senate, Halo o'f Maine, renroso of Penn
sylvania, Burrows of Michigan and
Smoot of Utah. The Democratic sen
ators who will participate In the con
ference probably will be Daniel of Vir
ginia, Money of Mississippi and Bailey
In tho house Speaker Cannon, ac
cording to the reports, probably will
select Payne of New York, Dalzell of
Pennsylvania, Boutell of Illinois, Me
Call of Massachusetts and either Cal
derhend of Kansas or Needliam of Cal
ifornia as tho Itopuhllcai members
nnd Champ Clark of Missouri, Under
wood of Alabama and Griggs of Geor
