Members Settle Program
(STlnl Ilu I le tin Cable.)
WASHINGTON. D. C. Mav 15. The Democratic members
of the Senate Finance Committee have decided to support a
plan for a thirty-three and one-third per cent reduction in the
sugar tariff, elimination of the differential on refined, and
the removal of the Dutch standard.
C. S. ALBERT.
According to a cablegram received from the II II 1 1 e 1 1 n's Washington
correspondent. .Mr. Albert, on Monday, the Itepiibllcan members of the com
mittee have agreed to support Senator Lodge's resolution iiholMiliig the dif
ferential and the Dutch standard, but will nut go further In sugar tariff
revision. The action of the Deinocru tie members was predicted from Wash
ington by Correspondent Albert a few duys ago.
The proposal to remove the differential on refined mid to abolish the
Dutch standard does not affect Hawaiian Miliar to any appreol.ilile extent. A
cut of a third In the tariff on ruw sugar would be u cut'of Cfi cents a hun

ii third lopped on would be approximately II. 1! a hundred pounds, the pres
