JE TAX BILL
AfTOCKAT IS KKADY FOR AXY
MEAN'S TO WIS.
MAY RETIRE FROM SENATE
Tell Protected Intercuts Income Tax
Would Require Slashing of
Washington Although Senator
Aldrlch hus Indicated the tactics he
intends to pursue to kill the Income
Ux amendment to the tariff bill in
the seuato, nd although he has
demonstrated his ability to get votes
enough to accomplish his purpose,
those senators who sincerely believe
in income tax legislation and who
have had the courage to stand by
their convictions still hope against
hope that at the critical time they
will muster enough strength to se
cure the adoption of their pet meas
ure. The income tax amendment, In the
Judgment of experienced men, la
dead. To defeat this one amend
ment Aldrlch would go to any
length. His reputation la really at
take. If the Income tax amend
ment should be adopted by the sen1
ate. It would be accepted by the
house and would become the law of
the land. Aldrlch has decreed that
this amendment shall not be adopt
ed by the senate. He expects soon
to retire from the senate and ha
-wants to retire with victory, not de
feat written across his standard.
Aldrich and those who stand with
him Insist that the new tariff bill
will produce ample revenue; If It
does not, It will be ample time to
take up the Income tax next session.
Moreover, they contend that If the
Income tax were adopted some of the
protected schedules of the tariff bill
would have to be cut beyond the
protective figure, else there would be
too much revenue.
On account of be progress made
last week, senate leaders are predict
ing that the tariff bUl will be voted
upon In the senate by June 19, and
congress will be ready to adjourn
before July 4.
