EXCISE TAX BILL
PASSES IfJ SENATE
Democrats' and Progressives
Combine in Putting Through
Measure From House.
RECIPROCITY LAW DEAD
Borah's Fight to Have His Income
Tax Bill Substituted Lost Per
manent Tariff Commission Is
PrOTlded in Enactment.
"WASHINGTON. July 27. Democrats
and Progressives united again in the
Senate and bv vote of 36 to 18 last
night passed the Democratic excise tax
bill, extending the present tax on cor
porations to the business or lnoiviauain.
nriv&te. firms and co-DartnershipS.
Attached to the measure tlta -by the
aid of Republican votes, were amend
ments for the repeal ot me Lanaonu
reciprocity law and the fixing of a two
dollar a. ton tariff on Drint paper, and
for the establishment of a permanent
non-partisan tariff commission.
Borah Barely Loses.
Senator Borah, in a fight to have
bis income tax bill substituted for the
"tax on business," lost by a vote of
33 to S3, although he mustered to his
support many regular Republicans and
four Democrats Ashurst, uuiDerson.
Hitchcock and Martine.
On the passage of the excise bills,
h bills were suoDorted by the fol
lowing progressives an Insurgent Re
publicans: Bourne, Bristow, iapp,
Crawford, Cummins, Gronna, Jones,
Kenyon. LaFolIette. Nelson, Polndexter,
Townsend and Works.
The measure was changed from the
original House bill only in minor par
ticulars, except for the addition oi me
Canadian reciprocity repeal and the
permanent tariff commission provision.
It will go back to the House for the
approval of that body and it is believed
an agreement soon win De reacnea bo
that a perfected measure can be laid
before the President.
The excise measure would levy upon
all persons, firms or co-partnerships,
an annual tax equal to one per cent of
net income in excess of J3000.
Reciprocity Amendment Fought.
Senator Cummins' permanent tariff
board amendment, which was carried
yesterday in the wool fight and then
lost In the final upheaval when the
La Follette bill passed, was attached
to the excise bill by a vote of 88 to 29.
All Republicans except Heyburn, of
Idaho, supported it.
The chief fight aside from that over
Senator Borah's Income tax measure,
came upon the Canadian reciprocity
amendment offered by Senator Gronna,
of North Dakota.
The amendment adopted by the Sen
ate. 37 to 26. provides for the complete
repeal of the reciprocity law and for
the establishment of a duty of 12 a
ton on print paper imported from Can
ada in place of the present duty of
13.75. The duty on chemical wood
pulp is fixed at "one-twelfth of one
cent a pound dry weight, if unbleached,
aud one-eighth of one cent a pound if
bleached, and the duty on printing pa
per at one-tenth of one cent a pound.
If valued at not above three cents a
pound: two-tenths of one cent a pound
If valued above three cents and not
above five cents a pound, and TA per
cent ad valorem if valued above five
cents a pound."
Hitchcock's Plan Lmm.
The Senate changed the excise bill
so that the tax would not apply to la
bor organizations, agricultural associa
tions or fraternal insurance organiza
tions. A plan to check the tobacco
monopoly by a special excise tax on
production above a certain amount, of
fered by Senator Hitchcock, was de
feated. The third of the Democratic tariff
measures, the sugar bill, will come up
tomorrow. It is believed the combina
tion of Democrats and progressives will
continue throughout the third day of
the tariff programme, so that a sweep
ing reduction in the sugar tariff will
When the wool bill reached the House
today. Majority leader Underwood de
manded that It be sent to conference
and the Senate amendment be disagreed
Payne Offer Objection.
Representative Payne, of New York,
Republican, objected. Accordingly the
naming of the conferees was put over
Underwood today said he thought
there would be little difficulty in reach
ing a compromise. In this case a bill
almost identical with the one President
Taft vetoed on August 17, 1911, prob
ably will go to the White House within
a few weeka
The former bill was vetoed on the
grounds that the Tariff Board had not
reported on its investigation of sched
ule K. Both houses say the La Follette
bill follows the conclusions ot the board
The essential points of the La Fol
lette bill and the House bill are:
Raw wool La Follette bill. 10 to 35
per cent: House bill, 20 per cent.
Wool wastes and rags La Follette
bill, 25 to 30 per cent: House bill. 20
Combed wool or tops La Follette bill.
40 per cent; House bill. 25 per cent.
Yarns La Follette bill, 45 per cent;
House bill. 30 per cent.
Clothes, ready-made clothing, knit
fabrics, women's dress goods, etc La
Follette bill. S3 per cent: House bill.
35 to 50 per cent.
Carpets La Follette bill, 35 per cent;
House bill, 25 to 50 per cent.
Much Depends on Committee.
These are the more striking compar
isons. When the House and Senate con
ferees reached a compromise a year
ago the raw wool duty was com
promised at 29 per cent, wool waste at
29. combed wool at S3 per cent, yarn
at 35 per cent, ready-made clothing at
49 per cent.
It will deDend largely on the char
acter of the conference committee
named by the Senate whether a com
promise similar to that will be quickly
Chairman Underwood also sees a
chance for the cotton revision bill at
this session ot Congress.
Taft'a Friends Predict Veto.
At the White House. President Taffs
callers predicted he would veto the
wool bill If it came to him in the form
it left the Senate, which is substantially
the same bill as was vetoed last year.

condition of the Ros City boys en
abled them to make a final spurt at
a fast stroke which brought them in a
few lengths to the good.
V. B. Allen, of Vancouver, won the
Junior singles after a pretty fight with

MEN FIGHT, EAR CHEWED
CONTRACTOR ACCUSED OF BIT

Charles E. Pottage Mixes With
Thomas Conroy at Labor Temple
and Then Leaps to Freedom.
In a quarrel In which he is said to
have drawn a knife, Charles E. Pot
tage, a contractor, of 746 Borthwick
street, bit half off the left ear of
Thomas Conroy, the business agent of
the Hodcarrlers' Union, at labor head
quarters in the Labor Temple Friday
night. This statement was made last
night to the detectives by Conroy, who
brought his Beverea ear 10 me ue

Pottage narrowly escaped conviction
on -a charge of murder about a year
ago. after he had shot and killed Frank
Porter, a steam engineer in charge of
one of Pottage's outfits at East Tenth
and Brazee streets. Pottage testified
that he shot in self-defense and the
District Attorney's office, believing he
spoke the truth, offered little prosecu
tion. The fact that Pottage's story was
substantiated by the presence of a re
volver in the hand of the dead man,
saved him from imprisonment.
Pottage was later arrested lor as
saulting one of his workmen with a
shovel, but escaped punishment. He
had been arrested also for mistreating
the horses used In his grading work.
According to Conroy s story, tney
had a disagreement over a business
matter and Pottage drew a knife from
his pocket. Conroy grappled with him
and forced him to drop the knife, when
Pottage bit Conroy 8 ear. "ottage tnen

open window on the second floor to

said Conroy. Witnesses of the affair
prevented the wounded man from fol
lowing. Conroy hastened to the detective bu
reau without having received medical
attendance, and some force was neces
sary before he could be persuaded to
have the ear treated.
Detectives Hill and Epps were as
signed to arrest Pottage, although no
warrant was sworn out last night by
Conroy, because the office of the Dis
trict Attorney was closed.

CREED TO STARTLE,
He Expects -to Be Called An
archistic, He Says, When
He Recites Doctrines.
Two of Measures Favored Will Be
Minimum Wage Scale for Women
and Guarantee Law Giving
Labor Shorter Hours.
OTSTER BAT, N. Y., July 27. The
"Confession of Faith" of Colonel
Roosevelt now is down in black and
white, the finishing touches having
been made today. When he has com
pleted the recital of his doctrines in
Chicago on the night of August 5 he
probably will be called socialistic or
anarchistic and may be both, he said
tonight. But he Insisted that the
measures he advocated must come.
"They are a corrective to socialism
and an antidote to anarchy," he said.
Minimum Wage Law Urged.
Two of the more striking measures
favored by Colonel Roosevelt are the
fixing by law of minimum wage scales
for women, workers and a guarantee
by law to workmen employed in what
he calls the "continuous Industries" of
eight-hour shifts and one day's rest in
Colonel Roosevelt said he had not
wished at Dresent to take up new
things, but had come to the conclu
sion that he must develop some of his
doctrines in his Chicago speech and
had gone further than ever before in
advocating what might be regarded ny
his onDOnents as radical measures.
Business should be encouraged in
every ligltimate way, he said, but at
the same time business prosperity
should be made the "handmaiden of the
people" and the tendency should be
toward a diversification of the owner
ship of property. He said the effort
should be to correct attendant evils
rather than to attempt to abolish large
corporations- or to restrict their Size.
Democratic Proposals Hit.
It was in this connection that he said
he favored a minimum wage for women
and he added that later It probably
would be necessary to make similar
scales for men. His proposal of a
guarantee of six days and eight-hour
shifts he restricted to the "continuous
industries," like the steel mills, in
which work Is kept up 24 hours a day
and seven days a week.
Colonel Roosevelt mentioned tnese
two measures merely as illustrating
tha kind of legislation which he be
lieves should be adopted to meet ex
The proposals of the Democrats,
Colonel Roosevelt said, were futile. He
cited the Stanley Congressional inve.
tigation as illustrating his point.
Referring to the recommendation
that no corporation be permitted to
control .more than 30 per cent of any
particular business, he said such an
arbitrary limitation was' foolish.- ' If
an attempt were made to put it into
effect the only result would be a series
of lawsuits for four or five years, ter
minating In decisions similar to the re
cent rulings of the Supreme Court In
the American Tobacco and Standard
Bryan Given Rap.
The Democratic party, he said, of
fered no solution of these problems and
as for the Democratic platform, he
viewed it lightly, saying that it was
written by William J. Bryan, who did
not know what he wanted. The Repub
lican party, now that the men in the
National Progressive party movement
have left it, he said, is composed large
ly of the bosses and the financial interests.
CLASHES MARK CONVENTION
North Dakota. Progressives Don't
Agree at Fargo.
FARGO, N. D., July 27. Stormy
scenes marked the convention of North
Dakota progressives which met here
today to select delegates to the third
oarty convention in Chicago on au
gust 6. The clashes on the convention
floor grew out of the question of quali
fication to membership in the con
vention. Judge W. S. Lauder Of Wap-
peton, a LaFolIette delegate to the
Republican convention, was made
The assemblage was made up of
delegates whose affiliations heretofore
have been with the Republican and
Democratic parties. A committee was
appointed to determine the eligibility
of delegates with the understanding
that none except those whose progress
iveness was known to the committee
should be admitted to the councils of
the new party.
The endorsement of the state ttdket
was deferred until another convention
Is held in August, immediately after
the Chicago meeting.

the third party movement. This was
the statement he made today before
departing for New York.
When told that there was a rumor

make his attitude clear. For the last
two weeks he has been fishing In the

viewed the growth of Methodism ln:
Oregon from the time, 64 years ago,
when he helped to build a little log
church in the forest near the river, and
the coming of the ministers to the ilrst

off days with the present, and hoped
to be able to give the new bishop tho
support that he had given to all the
other bishops who had come to Oregon

had been extended to him by Rev. J.

Bishop Cooke paid a tribute to Rev.
