"and we -want to know if the Senator
from Maine .will join me to protect it? I
will assist, because I want protection for
that infant industry in South Carolina."
If the Senator will be a little less
boisterous." interrupted Hale. "I will try-
to answer him.
Why should you ask me to be less
boisterous." retorted Tillman, "when some
other Senators have been high-horsing
around here as if they were in a circus?"
Cummins offered several amendments

Standpatters Take Xew Tack in De

Cuts Few Duties and May
Kxpand Free List.
WASHINGTON, May 11. Substantial
progress whs made in the consideration
of the tariff bill today, the amendments
of the committen on finance being upheld
in the S?nate by substantial majorities.
A feature of the session was a gen
eral discussion concerning, the rcat dis
parity between wholesale and retail
prices. Republican Senators declared this
difference was so great as to demonstrate
that the duty levied by a protective tariff
had small effect on the price paid ty
I lie consumer. This feature of the dis
cission was precipitated by fecott, him
self a glass manufacturer.
The schedule covering the products of
lead was passed over upon the sugges
tion of Aldrich, because, he said, the
finance commute desired to make some
changes in the duties as previously rec
ommended. Aldrich stated also that the
committee would submit a definite scale
of duties on zinc ores and products of
zinc. BriMow ennounced that when the
white-lead schedule should be reuched he
would wish to be heard.
One Thing to Go on Free Ijlst.
The committee's amendment striking
out the House duty of one-half of 1 per
cent per pound on refined nitrate of salt
peter was agreed to . It is understood
that that product will be placed upon
the free list.
Aldrich then requested an agreement
to the committee amendment Increas
ing the duty on all raits of san
tonin from 50 cents to $1. stating that
the proposed duty was the rate of both
the Dingley and the Gorman bills.
But few Senators were present, and
Overman suggested the absence of
a quorum, a rollcall bringing into the
chamber fil Senators. The section relat
ing to salts of santonin was then agreed
to as enacted.
On motion of Aldrich the section
relating to soap was amended so as to
place a duty of 50 per cent ad valorem on
perfumed soap, which he said was for
Sulphur Iuty Reduced.
The House provision on sulphur was
further amended so as to place crude
sulphur on the free list and to provide
for a duty of 4 a ton on refined sul
phur, the present law and the House bill
providing for a duty of J6 a ton.
The. section relating to limestone rock
asphalt was at first amended by reduc
ing the duty BO per cent under the pres
ent law. but later, on motion of Bev
rrtdue, who suggested that perhaps that
article should go on the free list, the
paragraph was temporarily passed over.
The schedule relating to mica was also
passed over. Aldrich saying the com
mittee desired to reconsider that para
graph, as It was not now satisfied
whether the duty should be increased
or whether the article should be placed
on the free list.
When the schedules relating to china
ware and earthenware were reached,
Cummins said that he proposed later to
offer an amendment to reduce the rate
As a result of an understanding
reached after a discussion of the parlia
mentary status of the bill, hereafter the
:'nate, as in committee of the whole, will
adopt finally each paragraph of the bill
as reached unless passed over bv agree
ment, and no further opportunity will be
had to amend the measure until it has
reached the parliamentary status of be
ing before the Senate.
. No Reduction on Karthenware.
Speaking in favor of a reduction on
the duties on steel and earthenware.
Bacon offered an amendment reducing the
rate from 0 to 35 per cent ad valorem.
Aldrich said that the revenue re
ceived from the china and earthenware
schedules was $5. Out). 000. the importation
amounting to $9,000,000.
Bacon's amendment was defeated

the only Republican who voted in "the
arnnnatlve with the Democrats.

protective policy as a whole.

In the great department stores of the
Kat. and In the Northwest states the
prices were increased 50 per cent.
Smoot made another contribution to the
fund of information concerning exorbi
tant prices. He instanced a case of a
razor, the manufacturer's wholesale price
of which was $3.ii5 a dozen, which sold at
$ to consumers. Gloves, he said, manu
factured for $7 per dozen, sold for $2 a
pair or $"J4 a' dozen. These high prices,
he said, had nothing to do with the pro
tective tariff because, compared with the
retail price, the tariff charges were
'o Cheaper Vnder Free Trade.
"Prices can be produced here to show."
said Flint, "that the retail merchants
make a larger percentage of profit than
in any other line of business. 1 under
take to say that if there were no duty
on Havlland china, that article would
sell no cheaper than today."
Mcl .aurtn defended the retail dealers
against the charge of extortion, saying
retailers would lose their trade if they
undertook to charge too much. He said
the high prices resulted from the tariff.
Tillman, addressing Hale, asked If he
would join him In voting for a 10-cent
duty on tea.

tion between the Western railroads
practically ceased after B. H. Harri
man secured control of the Southern
Pacific, Oregon Railroad & Navigation,
and Oregon Short Line, in connection
with the Union Pacific.
Testimony of interest was presented
by A. L. Scott, president of the Pacific
Hardware Steel Company. He stated
that his company formerly shipped to
Southern Idaho, via Ogden, but that
after the combine the tariff by that
route was cancelled and a tariff via
Portland substituted, including a sea
and rail shipment. The witness told of
the increase in rates since opposition
had ceased. Scott severely condemned
the vessels of the Pacific Mail . Line
running between thiscity and Panama.

erly by the Clark road, to run a survey

Orders Loner Rates.
WASHINGTON, May 1L Two decisions
of importance to the railways and lum
ber interests of the Northwest were hand
ed down today by the Interstate Com
merce Commission, the complainants
against the railroads being victorious in
each instance. Many months ago the
Kalispell Lumber Company and others
and the Big Blackfoot Milling Company
and others engaged in the lumber manu
facturing business in Montana, instituted
complaints against the Great Northern
Railway and other lines asking that they
be accoraed differentials on the rates es
tablished In the Spokane case. The dif
ferentiate requested were an average of
about 2?,i a hundred pounds. In the opin
ions announced today, the committee sus
tains the contentions pf the complainants
and issued orders that the differentials
are to be established by the railroads not
later than August 1 next. The orders
have the effect of large reductions in
rates on all lumber and products from
the Montana mills both east and west.
and will atford them an advantage of
approximately 2 cents a hundred pounds
over the mills in the Spokane group on
The rates established are required to
be maintained by the railroads for at
least two years.

BY JOSEPH M. QUENTIN. "
Little Beatrice Evelyn "Wilson, the daughter of Henry L "Wilson, 546 Hoyt street, has found a firm friend and admirer in Miss Myrtle
Elvyn, the world-famous pianist, who captured the affections of a few-thousands of us at the recent Portland Music Festival. "The "dear
little girl is the most promising young pianiste I have heard in America," is the way Miss Elvyn expresses it.
Beatrice Evelyn "Wilson is the young pianiste for whom the B. P. O. E., No. 142, is to give a benefit concert at the Heilig Theater on the
night of May 12, to raise funds with which to send the child to Berlin, Germany, where she hopes to complete her musical education under cele
brated teachers. '

of the ante-rooms at the Armory just as she had finished playing the Liszt E flat concerto and the encore, a "Nocturne," by Scriabine, for the
"Oh, yes, I had a visit at my hotel from Beatrice Evelyn Wilson," said the fair pianist, smiling as an elder sister would over a younger
one's musical development. "As you may guess, quite a number of young piano pupils ask me to hear them play, but of all those I have heard
throughout my tours across this country, Beatrice is the most promising. She played for me two pieces by Leschetizsky, anoY a rhapsody by
Liszt, and really showed remarkable aptitude for piano work. She is, I am told, 11 years of age, and has a very encouraging musical future,
if she studies and practices. Of course, she is too young yet to develop finger strength, but that will come with the years before her. Cer
tainly, she ought to be taken to Europe for study. One must go to Europe to get the necessary musical environment. I wish the little girl all
