THE SUNDAY OKEGOXIAN. PORTLAND. JULY 28, 1912. 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 be approved. 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 to. Payne Offer Objection. Representative Payne, of New York, Republican, objected. Accordingly the naming of the conferees was put over until tomorrow. 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 quite closely. 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 per cent. 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 effected. 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.

Portland No. 1 and James Bay had the race to themselves, owing to a collision between Portland's second crew and Vancouver. For a time it looked as if the Victoria boat would be the winner, but the superior 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 Havely. Both finished within their strength, but Allen had a safe lead.

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 tective bureau to substantiate his charges. 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 broke away and Jumped through an open window on the second floor to the street below ana maae nis escape, 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.

AIM DECLARED-CORRECTIVE 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 every seven. 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 isting conditions. 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 OH cases. 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 permanent chairman 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. LOEB WILL NOT RESIGN POST Collector ot Customs at New York ' Not to Aid Third Party Move. MEEKER, Colo., July 27. William Loeb, Jr., collector of customs for the port of New York, has ho intention of resigning his office to take part in the third party movement. This was the statement he made today before departing for New York. When told that there was a rumor that he had sent his resignation to President Taft, the former secretary to ex-President Roosevelt was quick to make his attitude clear. For the last two weeks he has been fishing In the mountain streams near here. YOUNG DRAMATIST IS DEAD Anthony Wills, Who Presented "The Squawman," Succumbs at 28. NEW YORK. July 27.

BISHOP COOKE GREETED METHODIST PASTORS WELCOME HIM TO CITY, New Head of Church in Oregon Pays Eloquent Tribute to Associates. '" At a reception held Friday night in the Taylor Street Methodist Episcopal. Church, Bishop R. J. Cooke,, recently chosen Bishop of Oregon, was formally welcomed to Portland by the ministers of the Methodist denomination and their wives. In the receiving line were Rev. C. C. Rarick. Mrs. John H. Cud lipp, Mrs. W. H. Myers and Rev. J. J. McDougalL At the meeting which fol lower! Rev. C. C. Rarick-presented the various speakers. Rev. John FHnn, the venerable churchman, now in his 96th year, re 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 conference. He contrasted those: far 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 in his long residence here. In acknowledging the greetings that had been extended to him by Rev. J. W. McDougall, Dr. Benjamin Young, Rev. Mr. Rarick and Rev. C. J. Larson. Bishop Cooke paid a tribute to Rev. Mr. Flinn, whose long and faithful service to the church impressed him deeply. Bishop Cooke expressed his satisfaction with' the decision of the general conference to send him to Ore gon, saying that when he was advised of tha choice he replied, "That suits me." - "I am glad I am here," said Bishop Cnoke, "glad because it is so much like Tennessee, where I put in 36 years of ministerial life. I suppose a Methodist bishop is supposed, to do a great, many things; a great many things are mapped out for him. I am not indulging in tiattery when I say that this Pacific Northwest is to be, before many years, the front door of the United States. What effect the Panama Canal will have on the destiny of this part of the country, no man living can foretell, but the time will come when millions will find their homes here In your val leys. There never was a church that has the opportunity that the Methodist, Church has. The wise church, as the wise man, will. In my judgment, settle down on a few things and do those things well." . B.
