"Tho Copper Ktver & .Northwestern

voto was on tho substitution oi tno
corporation tax amendment for the in
come tax proviBlon, and on that voto
45 senators cast thoir ballots in tho
nfflrmotivo and 81 in the negative.
Thursday, July I.
Washington. July 1. The senate
"camei within ono" today of agreeing
to voto next Tuesday on tho entire in
come tax amendment to tho tariff bill,
including tho corporation tax substi
tute. Tho compact was prevented by
the objection of Bulkeley.
There wero sovoral speech? today,
Borah leading off in favor of the in
come tax and Root advocating tho cor
poration tax but opposing the income
tax. It was evident throughout the
entiro day that tho corporation tax had
failed to arouao as much interest in tho
senate aa had been expected. During
the debate today Bourne, of Oregon,
predicted that tho corporation tax
would result in publicity of corportion
affaire and thus prove of great service
to the public.
Wednesday, Juno 30.
Washington, June 30. The income
tax was practically tho only subject,
and Cummins, of Iowa, nnd Borah, of
Idaho, the only speakers before the sen
Borah was heard toward the close of
the BCBsion', when tho Iowa senator
yielded the floor, which he had held
since yesterday. He took for hia text
the declaration mado yeaterdoy by
Aldrich that ho would vote for the cor
poration tax amendment only na a
means of defeating tho income tax,
nnd without resorting to personalities
he criticised the position of the chair
man of the finance committee, who had
presented tho corporation tax amend
ment to tho senate.
EBtimnting tho total revenues under
tho Aldrich-Payne bill nt $360,000,000,
and those to be derived from the inter
rial revenue at $240,000,000, ho pre
dicted that nt tho end of the fiscal year
1911 there would be a deficit of not
less thnn $175,000,000. He therefore
contended that the amendment of the
tariff bill by tho addition of an income
tax was necessary in order to produce
Tuesday, June 20.
Washington, Juno 29. With the
tariff schedules disposed of, the senate
today began consideration of tho pro
posed income and corporation taxes.
The question of taxing incomes re
ceived nttention wh.ilo the tea provis
ion was under consideration, and it
was hen that tho most interesting oc
currences of tho day took place. This
was the announcement of the real atti
tude of Chairman Aldrich, of the
finance committee, toward the corpora
tion tax provision, vvhich he had intro
duced at the instance of the president.
Ho said that he advocated tho corpora
tion tax na n means of defeating the
income tax. He also said he thought
for tho next year or two there would
bo a deficit in tho treasury receipts,
which ho was willing to have made
good by tho incomo from tho proposed
corporation tax. Ho thought that the
tax could be materially modified, if not
repealed, within a year or two.

BLOCKS GROWING OF BEETS.
Lack of Railroads Prevents Oregon
From Becoming Sugar State.
Washington, June 28. According to
the United States Department of Agri
culture, lack of transportation facili
ties in Oregon is seriously retarding
the development of the beet sugar in
dustry in that state. Oregon today has
but one beet sugar factory that at
La Grande. Capital has been looking
over the Eastern Oregon field and sev
eral localities have been found where
the growing of sugar beets on a largo
scale would prosper if there were ade
quate facilities for getting the beets
to a factory. But the almost utter
lack of railroad transportation is an
obstale too great to be overcome in
moBt inatoncces. The department re
port indicates that there is prospect of
the installation of a BUgar factory at
Enterprise, though no details are given
and the whole matter is'still undecided.
Washington, like Oregon, has but a
single sugar factory at this time.
That one is at Waverly. There are a
number of places in Eastern Washing
ton, however, where the building of
sugar factories is seriously contemplat
ed, among them North Yakima, Spo
kane and Thorp. The department re
ports that companies have been formed;
in some caaeB contracts nave been
made with the farmers to grow sugar
beets; considerable capital has been
subscribed; concessions have been
tentatively secured from towns, such
aa free building sites, remission of
taxes for a period of years and ""other
privileges. All these projects are
simply awaiting development or more

TWO DEATHS IN NEW YORK.
Thunder Storm Does Great Damage
and Cools Air Somewhat.
New York, June 29. The second of
a series of cooling thunderstorms broke
over the city late yesterday. There
was a sudden drop in temperature.
The storm was responsible for the death
of one man and injury of several. At
the Polo grounds the game between
New York and Brooklyn was about .to
begin when lightning struck the flag
pole in center field, smashing the upper
portion of the staff into splinters and
tearing down the pennant flag which
the New York team won in 1905.
Before relief came two deaths were

the apple situation, both as to produc

Agricultural department officials. He
waa assured on every hand that there
ib no danger of overproduction of ap
ples in Oregon; that the Eastern mar
ket ia almost unlimited, but before the
trade can assume large proportions
means must be devised for getting
Oregon apples into the Eastern market
at less cost to the consumer.
They are in great demand for their
quality, but the price is almost prohib
itive. Mr. Newell says after weeks of
Btudy that higher prices in the East
arise from the fact that apples pasa
through too many hands boforo reach
ing tho consumer and therefore pay too
many profits. He believes this can be
