Washington, April 8. The Bepub

finance are continuing their work day
and night on the tariff bill with the In.
tentiou of reporting it to the senate at
the earliest possible day, They are
not prepared to give out any results ol
their investigations and state that they
have not reached any conclusions sa to
the proposed changes. There is, how
ever, a well-defined impression about
the senate that the bill will be gener
ally remodeled and the rates considers
bly reduced in many schedules.
There is a general belief among West
ern senators that there will be material
changes in rates on wools, especially
those of the third olass.
Among other suggestions urged is a
return to the Wilson law of 8 oents a
pound duty on hops, instead of IS
cents, as proposed by the Dingley bill.
It is claimed that the proposed increase
will be an injury rather than benefit
to the producer, and a hardship to the

Washington, April 6. Secretary
Oage today announced that he had de

providing for the retention of samples
of merchandise, imported under orders
given subsequent to April 1, and which
were not purchased and directed by
the owner to be shipped for import
into the United States prior to April 1.
This action, however, will be taken un

cussed at a large meeting of the Ameri

the American embassy wss represented
by Henry Wignaud, secretary of Am

the chamber said:
"America sends France 180.000.000
francs' worth of goods duty free, ss
against 80,000.000 worth sent by
France, duty free, to America. The
chamber suggests that the United Sataes
should reduce the tariff in some import
ant French exports, the natural result
of which would be that France would
admit many American manufactures at
a reduced tariff. The advantage to
America under existing condition! by
France admitting some articles at the
minimum tariff is over 18,000,000

Toledo, April 6. Farmers are trying
to form a trust It is to spread all over

not a dollars' worth of farm proudce of

however, the country Is practically in
condition to be plaoed in the grip of
this remarkable combine.
Lancaster, Pa., was the birthplace of
the trust. It saw light there several
months ago, and was incorporated un
der the laws of New Jersey as the Agri
culturalists' National Protective Asm
elation. The supreme body is made up
of one representative from each state,
whose duties are similar to those ot the
board of directors of an ordinary cor
poration. Eaoh state has a subordinate
hoard of directors, consisting of one re
presentative from each congressional
district Each district In turn is gov
erned by a board of two members from
each county. Koch county is under con
trol of a board of from five to eleven in
number, who direct the movements of
the township organisations.
It is the purpose to do nothing this
year in the way of controlling the mar
kets, because the organisation is not
complete. Next year, however, the
crops will be limited to actual living
needs of members.
It the plan is carried out. not a dol
lars' worth of farm produot of any kind
will be sold for general consumption, it
being the purpose to compel the people
to import all food prodnots. It is be
lieved that by this method the power
of the association can best make itself
