Present Hate Cut From $1.00 to
$1.60 Duties Standard and Be-
flners' Differential Abolished.
Democrats Join in Vote.
WASHINGTON, July '27. A Repub
lican sugar tariff bill, the first purely
Reouhllcan revision measure of the
present Congress, was adopted today in
the Senate. Deserting their allies of
the last two days, the Republican pro
gressives, by an Ironclad agreement
with the regulars, succeeded in passing
a tariff reduction bill which they be
Ueve President Taft will sign.
The sugar bill was a compromise be
tween the Lodge plan indorsed by the
regular Republicans and the Brlstow
bill, behind which the progressives
lined up. It would cut the present
sugar duty of $1.90 to $1.60; would
abolish the duties standard under which
virtually no refined sugar can be Im
ported, and would abolish the 7-cent
"refiners' differential," an additional
duty on refined sugar, which, it Is said.
has accrued directly to tne profit of
Compromise Brlstow Victory.
The Republicans played "big politics"
In the third and last day's fight on tar
iff measures. ' The regulars came down
from the $1.824 duty of the Lodge
bill, while the progressives moved up
ward from the $1.52 rate in the orlg-
nal Brlstow hill. The compromise.
which is only 7',i cents above the low
est figure named by the progressives.
Is considered a victory for Senator
Brlstow. who has been the most active
advocate of sugar tariff reduction on
the Republican side.
The Democratic free sugar bill passed
by the House of Representatives did
not come to a vote in the Senate. The
Bristow-Lodge amendment was first
adopted In the committee of the whole
by a vote of 37 to 25. Senators Thorn
ton and Foster, of Louisiana, Demo
crats, voting with the Republicans.
. Democratic Substitute Rejected.
The Senate Democrats then offered
their substitute for the House bill, pro
posing a one-third reduction in the
existing sugar tariff. This was de
feated 36 to 24. the Republican regu
lars and progressives holding to their
agreement. The Bristow-Lodge bill
finally passed the Senate with all ex
cept two Democrats voting for it. The
final vote was 52 to 3.' The negative
votes were cast by Senators Heyburn,
Republican, and Foster, and Thornton,
. The attitude of the Senate Demo
crats In finally supporting the Repub
lican hill is expected to have influence
with the Democrats of the House when
the amended bill goes back there.
An attempt to attach the Canadian
reciprocity appeal amendment to the
bill, made by Senator McCumber, was
defeated 31 to 24.
Duties Morn Reduced.
The Senate bill would reduce the
duty on Cuban sugar, which comes in
under the reciprocity treaty at Ii.a4,
to about $1.20 ner 100 pounds. The
maximum reduction of duty on all re
fined sugar is three-tenths of a cent
a pound. The aboltion of the duties
standard, it is understood, will make
possible more foreign competition In
cheap sugars, which have been shut
out because they did not meet the color
It is estimated tliat the sugar tariff
reduction. If it becomes effective, will
reduce Government customs receipts
about $5,500,000. while its saving in the
retail sugar bill of the Nation Is'estl
mated at $20,000,000.

Clark had gained a clear majority,
James E. Godfrey, who has just re
turned home, says that nevertheless
the Democratic ticket is satisfactory
and that he belieyes Woodrow Wilson
will be elected.
"When Clark secured the majority he
should have had two-thirds vote," said
Mr. Godfrey. "I do not consider that
I violated my pledge to the people of
Oregon in casting my vote when T
did for Clark. I consider that I had
the same right to change from Wilson
to Clark that Bryan had to jump to
Wilson. The New York delegates were
not a bunch of renegades and Bryan's
attitude in that respect, I believe, ?ave
me ample reason to vote for Clark
