filibuster would prevent passage.
During the brief discussion. Senator
Harrison charged that there was a
"Joker" In the wool schedules by which
most imported wool would be charged
a tariff of 38 per cent instead of the
15 per cent rate in the bill. This, he
declared, would be effected by a pro-

which are sorted.
The proposed sugar duties also were
discussed by Senator Harrison, who
declared that, despite republican cam
paifn pledges to reduce the cost of
living, the proposed sugar tariff of
about two cents a pound would add
that much to the cost. .
Senator Smoot, republican, Utah,
and Ransaell, democrat, Iouisiana,
conceded that the sugar prices would
be increased, to the extend of the tariff
on Cuban sugar and also the domestic
crop. Both, however, argued that the
raise wan necessary to aid American
sugar produced whom Senator Smoot
said were being forced to sell at two
cents a pound below production costs.
Senator Bimmona expressed the belief
that the proposed tariff immediately
would raise the price of Cuban sugar
to eight cents, as compared with the
present prices of about 4 3-8 cents a
