NEWS FROM OUR
Wo Schedule Is Passed by
the House All Repubman
BRIEF NEWS OF OREGON
Washington. Th wool schedule
whs pnssrd without amendment by the
bouse tn its consideration of the Un
derwood tariff bill. It went through
with little excitement, its passage
causing scarcely a ripple on the
mooth waterB of the democratic tariff
The republicans concentrated their
attacks on the schedule by presenting
a blanket amendment as a substitute
for It. This substitute, prepared by
Representative Payne, provided a rate
of 18 cents a pound on raw wool,
"placed on the free list in the Under
wood bill, and comparative rates based
on a duty of 18 cents a pound on the
wool contents of the various stages
of manufactured woolens.
The republicans proclaimed their
substitute to be In conformity with
the report which the tnrlff board made
on the woolen Industry, made two
years ago. Tli- democrats as emphat
ically declared that It was not.
An expected defection from party
lines by democratic members repre
senting woolgrowlng states failed to
materialise in the vote on raw wool.
The republican substitute was defeat
ed and the Underwood schedule passed
74 to 13.
The progressives who voted with the
democrats were: Murdock of Kansas,
Kelley of Tennessee, Chandler of New
York, and Bryan and Falconer of
Good Rosds Committee Proposed
Washington. Good roads legislation
Is considered of such Importance that
leading democrats propose to create
a new standing committee in the house
to be known as the committee on good
Provision for such a committee of
21 was made in a resolution Intro
duced by Representative Henry, of
Texas. Should the committee be cre
ated It would take from the present
committee on postofflces and post
roadH a part of lis work. Mr. Henry
declared thet mor- than GO good roads
measures already introduced which or
dinarily would go to numerous send
ing committees should go to one and
bis suggestion had the approval of
many leading democrats.
Britain Objects to Preferential Clause
The British government has Joined
the nutlons in Protest against that por
tion of the tariff bill which extends a
preferential difference of 5 per cent
on goods imported In American bot
toms. One of the first acts of Sir Cecil
Spring-Rice, the new British ambassa
dor, was to call the attention of the
State department to this provision as
In vlolatlou of the existing treaty of
trade and commerce between America
and Qreat Britain.
It Is understood the democratic tar
iff managers in the house, who were
t first disposed to permit the senate
to deal with this question. It being
one Involving treaty relations, which
belong to the upper houBe, have recog
nised the force of the objections that
have accumulated from all quarters
and will themselves remove the ob
jectionable provision by an amend
ment when the administrative section
of the bill containing it is reached.
Japan Will Enter Formal Protest
News that the Japanese government
had instructed Ambassador Chinda to
make formal protest against the Cal
ifornia alien land bill, now awating
Governor .lohnsous signature, was re
ceived in Washington official circles
with Intereet, although It was not un
expected. It is tukeii for granted In official
clrcleB here that legal proceedings will
follow the enactment of the bill Into
"japan believes Its treaty rights
should be taken to The Hague for ad
justment, but It is probable the de
partment of Justice and the state de
partment will hold that the proper pro
cedure will be for Japanese affected
by the legislation to appeal to the fed
Currency Act in Doubt
