nj VOTE.
House Passes the Senate's
Joint Resolution.
Only Fourteen Republicans Against
It President Agree, to Reduc
tion of Corporation Tax
to One Per Cent.
Washington, July 13. It Is now up
to the- legislatures of the several states
to say whether there shall be nn In
come tax amendment to the constitu
tion. By the decisive vote of 317 to 14,
more than the necessary two-thirds,
the house passed the senate Joint reso
lution providing for the submission of
the question to the states. No amend
ment having been made to the resolu
tion, it now goes to the president for
his signature.
To a tnnn the Democrats voted for
the resolution, while fourteen Repub
licans cast their votes against it as
Allen (Me.), Bnrchfeld, Dalzell, Mc
Creary and Wheeler (Pa.). Fordnoy
(Mich.), Gardner, MeCall and Weeks
(Mass.), Hill and Henry (Conn.), 01
cott and Southwlck (N. V.), Calder
head (Kan.).
Chairman Payne of the committee
on ways and means voiced the senti
ment that such a tax would make "a
nation of liars," although he said it
was well that such power should be
given congress, especially In times of
The burden of the Democratic
speeches was that it was simply a
case of stealing Democratic thunder,
although some of the remarks on that
side Incidentally touched upon the tar
iff and the corporation tax, with no
little amount of castlgallon of tlu Re
publicans for falling, as was alleged,
to keep party pledges.
Mr. Henry (Tex.) vainly sought to
offer an amendment providing for the
submission of the quest Ion through
'"constitutional conventions, but the
speaker ruled that under the agree
ment for a vote no amendment was in
order. From that decision Mr. Henry
appealed and succeeded In forcing a
roll call.
The vole resulted yeas isr, nays
143, which had the effect of sustalnl
the speaker. Vndaunted, Mr. Henry
moved to recommit the resolution with
instructions, but was debarred from
recognition because he was In favor
of the resolution. Mr. Gardner (Mass.)
made the point, but It was overwhelm
ingly voted down.
At a conference with the president
at the Whlto House it was definitely
decided that the rate to be levied un
der the new corporation tax shall bo
reduced from 2 per cent to 1 per cent
and that in redrafting the measure
now In conference with the tariff bill,
to meet various objections that have
been raised, duo consideration shall be
' given to the demands of the mutual
Hfo insurance companies whose in
comes would' bo seriously affected by
the tax in Its original form.
The president is in dally consultation
with the tariff conferees. Ho told sev
eral of his callers that he is ilndlng
, the conferees conciliatory and that he
Is hopeful that a satisfactory measure
will be presented to him for his sig
nature. The conference report should
be available, according to the presi
dent's information, by the end of next

The ships were so close that it was
impossible to avoid a collision, and the
Scott crashed into the side of the
heavily laden Cowle. For fifteen feet
the bow of the Scott penetrated the
side of the Cowlo. Tons of water
rushed Into the great opening.
Immediately after tho collision a

White Plains, N. V July 13. A
commission of thrco alienists, mutual-
ly selected, will pass upon the ques
tion of Harry K. Thaw's sanity. This
was decided upon at tho continuation
of the hearing before Justice Mills in
which counsel for Stanford Whlte'H

to release from the Asylum For the
Criminal Insane at Mattcawan.
With all of the testimony so far In
favor of Thaw and with the Indication
that his wife, Evelyn Nesblt Thaw,
will take the stand in his belinlf, with
District Attorney Turbine eliminated,
I Thaw's chances for release appear
I brighter than at any time since his

1 titled to Thiiw's soundness of mind
i court that he had been so much lm-
pressed by Thaw's Intelligent Interest
j lri the issues nt stake that he was will- j
' Ing to concede Thaw's right to a full I
tand impartial examination. I
He suggested that counsel for Thaw
and counsel for the people agree ro a
commission of three expert alienists
whoso decision should be accepted by
both parties to the suit without rcser-

this point also to bo decided by coun

English Lightweight Declared the Win-
ner Over Young Josephs.
Mountain Ash, Wales, July 13.
Freddie Welch, the Kngllsh light
weight, who won n number of fights
In tho United States in the early part
of the year, defeated Young Josephs,
also of England, In tho eleventh round;
of what ws scheduled to be a twenty
round bout here.
Josephs was disqualified for fouling.
Welch ruled tho favorite in the betting
nnd had tho best of the go throughout.
The fact that Welch won on a fonl
was very unsatisfactory, as ho nn
nticstionhbly would have got the de-
' eisloh on 1 Ills' merits within n few1
rounds. His superiority was clearly
marked. He did most' of the leading,
,nnd as early as the second round
Josephs showed signs of severe pun
ishment. Welch's improvement, which is the
result Of 'his-'many fights In the United
States, was a revelation to English ex
perts at the ringside.
