Canadian Manufacturers- Plan Meas
ures of Retaliation.
Ottawa, June 22. Canadian manu
facturers declare the American tariff
revision will force Canada to , make
some radical changes in her customs
tariffs also. That the adoption in Its
present form of the Akhich tariff bill
must result probably hi a widening of
the British preferential tariff by Cans
da la the opinion freely expressed by
the officers of the tariff department of
the Canadian Manufacturers associa
tion, who are now hers on business
with the government.
That important tariff changes will
be announced next spring is the opinion
held-by many, but the extent of them
is depending much on the developments
at Washingon. There may be no gen
eral increase aa affecting the Importa
tion into Canada of American commo
dities, although in many linos it will
be vigorously urged, -but s widening of
the British preference at least is al
ready being prsessd upon the govern

date of the final vote Is as indefinite ss
it wss s week ago.
The possibility of sending the bill
back to the boos by Jaly 1 Is now con
sidered remote. The discussion of a

for possible s day sr two. The wood

committee, which practically doubleo

taken up. "
After these two schedules have been

AMENDMENT Tfl CONSTITUTION
Urges Sensts to Adopt Provision as

Washington. Jane IT. President
Taft yesterday sent the following mas
sage to congress:
"To the Senate and House of Reptv

of tb president, from time to time, to

In my inaugural address, immedi
ately preceding this present extraordi
nary session of congress, I invited at
tention to the necessity for a revision
of the tariff at this session, and stated
tb principles upon which-- thought
the revision-should be effected. I re
ferred to the then rapidly Increasing
deficit, and pointed out the obligation
on the part of the framers of the tariff
bill to arrange duties so ss to secure an
adequate income, and suggested that if
it waa not possibls to do so by import
duties, new kinds of taxation must be
adopted, and among them I recommend
ed a graduated inheritance tax as cor
rect in principle and as certain and
iy of collection.

I adopted the suggestion and baa pro
vided in the bill it passed for the col
lection of such a tax. In the sensts,

"I therefore recommend an amend

all corporations and joint stock com
panies for profit, except national banks,
otherwise taxed, savings banks and
building and loan societies, an income
tax measured by 2 per cent of the net
income of such corporations. This is
an excise tax upon the privilege of do

of freedom from a general partnership

The secretary's action today put an
end to all protest agaiast railroad

if they hereafter seek to interfere with,
railroad construction, they must do so

to do so to avoid interference with any
