day if Not Sooner.
ONE POINT ONLY DISPUTED

Vndcr New Measure.
WASHINGTON'. Sept. 23. The Demo.
rratic tariff revision bill, first on the
programme of reforms mapped out
when President Wilson came into
office, advanced to its last Congres
sional stage today when It was brought
back to the House from the Joint con
ference with the unanimous Indorse
ment of the Democratic conferees.
Leaders In both houses of Congress
were confident tonight that the bill,
virtually complete now, would be
signed by President Wilson before the
end of this week.
It will scarcely leave the center of
the stage before the currency bill, next
in line, will be forced on the attention
of the country, and, coincident with the
consideration of this, will begin the
Administration work on the anti-trust
and railroad-control programmes that
are to be brought forward when the
December session opens.
Cotton Futures Alone Debated.
The tariff conference report went
to the House today soon after that
body convened at noon. During the
morning the full conference committee,
convened by Chairman Simmons, had
given the report its formal approval.
Senators Simmons, Williams, John
ion and Shlvely and Representatives
Underwood, K Itch In. Dixon and Ratney.
the Democrats who ha, ve adjusted nil
differences between the Senate and
House, excepting only the cotton fu
tures tax proposition, signed the final
if port, while the Republicans and Pro
gressive members declined to sign.
The House will take up the House
tariff bill at 11 o'clock tomorrow and It
is believed It will be passed before ad
journment. It is expected to reach the
Senate Wednesday and to pass that
body by Thursday.
The cotton futures tax still Is in dis
pute, the House refusing to accept the
so-called Clarke amendment adopted by
the Senate. Expressions today from the
White House and from Congressional
leaders, however, indicated that In the
final conference over this feature the
whole plan might be dropped from the
tariff bill and taken up as a separate
measure next Winter.
Gronllc Surplus Predicted.
Senator Simmons, chairman of the
Senate finance committee, gave out to
night the- first complete estimates of
Federal revenues and expenditures un
der the new tariff bill, as made up by
the experts for the Treasury. The
total estimates are as follows:
For the year ending July 1, 1914:
Receipts, 11,029,000.000: expenditures,
II, 013,000,000; surplus, 116,000,000.
For the year ending July 1, 1915:
Receipts. $1,026,000,000: expenditures,
$1,008,000,000; surplus. $18,000,000.
The estimated receipts under the
customs tariff, the income tax and the
corporation tax, embraced in the new
tariff are given as- follows:
Customs revenues. $270,000,000; In
come tax (ten months), $66,000,000; cor
poration tax. $38,000,000.
Customs revenues. $249,000,000; in
come tax. $53,000,000; corporation tax,
t Rates Effective by July 1.
The customs revenues will be larg
er for the current fiscal year, 1914."
said Senator Simmons, "because the
rates of the Payne-Aldrich law have
been in force for the first quarter and
will continue in force on wool and
woolen goods until January 1 and on
sugar until March 1. When the next
fiscal year begins. July 1, 1914. all the
rates of the new law will be In opera
ation and the tariff duties -collected
will be smaller.
"The income tax, which is collected
for the calendar year, can be collected
for only 10 months of the present year,
as the law specifies that collection
shall not go back of March 1, 1913.
The estimated increase in the total ex
penditures of the Government for 1915,
$5,000,000, Is based on the fact that
smaller expenditures are expected for
the Army and Navy than estimated."
The balance total of the estimate, as
given In the Treasury estimates, is
made up of postal receipts, internal
revenue receipts, the profits from pub
lic land sales and other sources of

"BILL DEFEATS ITSELF'
Opinion, Caustic at Times, Says Pro
visions of Draft Are Incongruous
and Irreconcilable, Violat-
ing- Rights of Carriers.
The so-called Medford rate bill, which
was adopted by the people under the
initiative on November 5, 1912, and
which made 'eeplng changes in
Viiar1 OiOIlt state, has been de-
H1 onal and void in a

Bean, of the United States District
Court in Portland, and Judge Gilbert,
of the United States Court of Appeals
in San Francisco, before whom, sitting
en banc, it was argued a little more
than seven months ago.
The decision was announced yester
day In an opinion written and delivered
from the bench by Judge Wolverton.
All three Judges fully concurred in
every aspect of the decision, Judge
Measure Made Target.
Almost Immediately after its passage
the measure became a target for traf
fic men and shippers all over the state.
It was declared that if permitted to be
come effective the law would put many
roads out of business, and that in order
to live, the other roads would have to
raise rates generally on shipments of
carload lots or more.
The measure has been generally re
ferred to as the "Medford" rate bill
because of charges that It was prepared
and placed on the ballot In the selfish
Interests of Medfdrd merchants. Frank
H. McCune was tts author.
Appealed to by railroad men and
shippers for relief against what It was
declared would be a disa-ster to the
state If permitted to go Into effect, the
Federal Court granted a temporary in
junction against the operation of tho
act shortly after Its passage. The
court directs that the injunction be
made permanent, in yesterday's de

A glorious day! This morning the 52d

One of the greatest contests ever wit

between Douglas and Benton counties.
Benton always has a magnificent ei

and admirably displayed, and the Ben

bacon rather, the blue ribbon. Per
haps they will again this year. But
the Douglas County exhibit surely is a
wonder. If it could be transferred in

it, there would be a greater demand

Booth Festooned In Corn.
In the booth are 62 varieties of fruit,
42 of garden truck, S6 of, grain and
grasses and 15 of pumpkins and
squashes. These are all admirably dis
played, artistically placed. But the
chief charm lies in the wonderfully ef
fective covering of the tooth and the
festooning of its front, which is all of
corn stalks with the large ears opened
up by throwing back the husks.
This corn (and Douglas County has
3000 acres of it this year) would startle

are more than 14 feet in length, one or

San Diego Heiress Declares She Has
No Intention of Marrying Man
Who Said She AVas to Be Bride.
SAN DIEGO, Cal.. Sept. 29. (Spe
cial.) Lieutenant - Commander J. n.
Freeman, of the cruiser Pittsburg, now
enroute to San Francisco, announced
his engagement to Miss Josephine
Smith, niece of Mrs. Parker Syms, of
Coronado, before 150 guests on the
Pittsburg last Saturday evening. The
following afternoon Miss Smith denied
her engagement to the United States
Naval officer with as much. If not
more, emphasis than that with which
he had announced it I have absolutely
no intention of marrying Lieutenant
Freeman," said Miss Smith yesterday.
"He acted entirely upon his own inl
tiative in announcing the engagement.
The story Is too long to tell."
Miss Smith said that she was
guest at Lieutenant-Commander Free
man's party on the Pittsburg Saturday
but she would not give any informa
tion on the subject of the engagement
and the result is the friends are in a
state of utter perplexity. Lieutenant
Freeman, or "Frisky," as he is known
to his intimate friends, is considered a
most able officer. Eight years ago
he brought a torpedo fleet of six boats
around the Horn and up the Pacific
Coast. The officer was believed to be
a confirmed bachelor and the an
nouncement of his engagement came
as a great surprise to his friends.
Freeman, who has been known as
"man's man," is considered a splendid
type of the young naval officer.
Miss Smith, one of the younger set
in Coronado. has been living with her
aunt, Mrs. Syms. and has been a prom
inent figure In Santiago and Coronado
society. Her parents, it is said, are
wealthy and well-known on the Coast.
She herself is wealthy, being the heir
