SPEED ON TARIFF BILL;
SEX ATE REPORT APRIL 10.
Several Amendments Offered and
[From The Tribune Boreaa. ]
Washington. April With the date fixed when
the Payne tariff bill is to pats the House, there Is
an air of expectancy and preparation m the Senate.
Senators are getting down to work on concrete
amendments; Three amendments were offered i::
the Senate .-da-, by Senator Heyburn. of Idaho,
and on Thursday Senator Stone, of Missouri, will
propose an amendment on which he has been work
ing for some time. Other Senators are hard at
work, and when the Payne bill reaches the Senate
it will be met by a sere of amendments.
The amendments of Senator Heyhurn possess the
rare merit of originality, being something new on
the tariff question. One of them provides that the
government shall collect an annual license fee Of
two cents a square foot upon every posted sign or
display advertisement of any article of commerce
or trade which enters 01 is advertised to enter Into
The Idaho Senator holds that the most important
phase of the tariff is the question of revenue. He
regards as unsightly the siens erected along rail
:.>t.i rip:. is •>, way pointing out me benefits of
certain patent medicines, soaps, brands of tobacco,
etc. On the way from Philadelphia to New York a
few weeks ago Senator Heyburn saw so many of
these signs that he became angry. He believes
they ought to be taxed, and thinks it possible to
frame a license law governing th-.»n» which will be
constitutional. Mr. Heyburn says a license fee of
two cents a square foot will yield an annual reve
nue of about $15,000,000
The other amendments proposed by the Idaho
Senator provide for the taxation of lands in excess
of one thousand acres held by individuals or cor
porations. The rate of taxation fixed in the amend
ments is M cents an acre. One of these amend
ments Is intended to reach lands containing coal,
iron, lumber and like articles which enter into in
terstate commerce. Mr. Heyburn says he knows
several men in the West who own one million acres
Of land. He believes they can well afford to con
tribute something to the revenues of the nation
for the protection which the government gives their
vast property Interests. He estimates that his pro
posed land tax ought to yield an annual income of
$+">,<iGo.oM> or more.
Senator Stone, of Missouri, will introduce on
Thursday an amendment providing for the Inde
pendence, of the Philippine Islands after fifteen
years. Mr. Stone holds that the Payne tariff " 111
commits the ■ Ited States to indefinite occupation
of the Philippines. Hi- contends that it is impossi
ble to assess duties against Importations from
the Philippines as a foreign country under Su
preme Court decisions, and says that if the Phil
ippines are a part of this country it is equally
inconsistent with law and our relations with other
nations. He purposes to urge free trade with the
Philippines on books, agricultural implements,
machinery, cotton and cotton manufactures for fif
teen years. ,
.The Committee, on Finance held a short session
this afternoon at which the- administrative feat
ures of the new tariff act were discussed. It la
believed Senator Aldrich will be ready to report
tl:t- Senate substitute for the Payne bill by
Many bills and resolutions were introduced In
the Senate to-day, but there was no debate. After
a short executive session the Senate, at 1 p m.,
.adjourned until Thursday. ,
A CHANGE IN POLICY.
President to Name Naturalized Citi
zen for Consular Post.
I From The Tribune Rureau.]
W^siiin-ilon. April The President has decided
on a change of policy from that of the last admin
istration with regard to diplomatic and consular
appointments. On assuming charge of the Depart
ment of State Secretary Knox found on record an
order issued by his predecessor prohftittng the
.sending in a diplomatic or consular capacity of a
naturalised citizen of the United States to the
country of Ms nativity, or to which he formerly
owed allegiance. It is not altogether clear why
this regulation was Issued, although It la known to
have had the approval of President Roosevelt. Mr.
Taft. however. can perceive no reason for con
tinuing the policy and has decided 10 reverse it.
He will in-. his decision known it an early date
by sending to the Sci ate the nomination of a natu
ralized American to be consul in the country of his
The President takes the ground that once a man
becomes a duly naturalized citizen of the United
States he is and slu-uld In all regards 1 - treated
as an American citizen, and that trie fact that he
was formerly a citizen of some other country
should be completely Ignored. 11 Is intimated by
MOM officials of the Department or State that the
PreaMeaii may find that ibis lead.- to embarrass
ments, but Mr. Taft believes that while it may
possibly prove Imperative to take into considers
tion a man's nativity in certain Instances. they will
be too few to warrant any general rule on the

DISPENSARY CASK OVER
South Carolina Commission Wins bif
Supreme Court Decision.
Washington, April s.— The famous South
lina dispensary case, involving the disposition or
nbout sWO-000 of dispensary funds held by the
State Dispensary Commission, was decided b; the
Bupreme Court of the United States to-day in
favor of th< • n. the opinion being rei
by Justice White.
The case was Instituted by the Wilson Distilling
Company and the Flelsrhmann Company in the

due the state and to pay all its debts.
At tl •• time the sultfl were instituted about Jx*'.

presented b> liquor oealers, and when the cm
mission declined to pay them as promptly as the
. reditora <i<*s;r»-.i thej brought suit for their col
lection. In their petitions in the ( "ir. uit Court
alleged thai the members of the commission
had entered into a conspiracy to hold the funds
for their own selfish purposes, in support of
which assertion they declared that the money was
deposited in banks in which members of the com
mission were officers or stockholders.
On the other hai.d. the commissioners alleged
a coalition among the ..editors »o colleci ex
cessive sums, and asserted that they had only
taken the necessary precautions of investigation
before settling any liabilities. The commission re
sisted the suit on the ground that it mj a pro
ceeding apainst the state itself and that the com
mission was a court and, therefore not subject
v. injunction. The Circuit Court overruled both
..f these pleas, placed ihe dispensary funds in the
hands o' » receiver, and granted an injunction
against the commission prohibiting it from dispos
ing of the funds In its possession. This opinion
was affirmed by the L" ilted States Circuit Courj

OPEN SUNDAY MEETING
Liberal League Plans Demonstration
at Carnegie Hall to Press Hill.
The first of the mass meetings to urge a more
open Sunday for this city Is to be held within
three weeks on a Sunday night at Carnegie Hall,
under the auspices of the Literal Sunday league.
Besides the addresses to be made by well known
public men, there will be moving pictures, show
ing the- difference between the open Sunday of
the Continent and the American Sunday. The
league at an executive meeting yesterday, at
which General John T. Cutting, chairman of th*
governing board, presided, unanimously Indorsed
the Hrough bill, drafted by the Committee of
Fourteen, which allows the opening of the saloons
on Sunday under proper restriction, and which Is
aimed to close th* Raines law hotels.
The platform of the league, which was adopted
unanimously, calls not only for the public libraries,
art galleries and museums, swimming baths and
such places to be Open on Sundays, but also for
concerts, theatrical performances, opera, moving
pictures, athletic games and open suburban '*-
sorts on thai day. Those present at the meeting
were Edward Lanterbach, Antonio Zueca. Robert
<■ Kammerer, Edward Bteindler, Seigfrled Helne
mann, Robert l>ee Dunn. John J. Freschl, Marks
Arnheim and H. J. Hut enstein. Samuel Unt-»r
myer ami Kdward Lauterba were appointed a
law committee to draft bills tending to liberalize
the Sabbath and to make Sunday ■ legal holiday.
Those •who favor tl *• bill c-f the Committee of
Fourteen are determined not is allow it to be
strangled In committee to-morrow if they can help
it. Practically the who]., committee will X" to Al
bany to appear before the Committee on Taxation
and Retrenchment, before which the hear*- r is to
be held. With them will go a large delegation or
clergy men and representatives of civic organizations
who are In favor of the I'll!. The stumbling block
In the way of the supporters of the measure Ist
Senator Raines, who does not want to see his law —
th.' present one changed at all. In the face of the
demand by leading men of the city for some reme
dial legislation, members of the committee believe
that ho Will not care to gu so far as to prevent Its
being reported to the Legislature. Senator Raines
named the committee, and It is one of upstate men.
with whom the Interests of New York City do not
weigh much. "Big Tim"' Sullivan is the only Man
hattan man on the committee, Kissel and Cullen, of
Urooklyn. I>*liik the only other representatives that
this < it: has on It.
"Then is no reason why the bill should not be
re.-.-i favorably, except the disinclination of the
rural politicians to yield anything, no matter how
beneficial 11 might be, to this city." salt! Edward
Stelndler yesterday. "The bill Is a thoroughly
good one. and would remedy most of the present
evils* Bad us the Raines law hotels are, the back
room is almost as evil, and the proposed law would
mean the diminishing of both evils. The rights of
those who wish to worship on Sunday »r. carefully
preserved and safeguarded. The open saloon, with
the back room closed, would decrease drunkenness
and lessen the other attendant evils. The w.iy in
which the Sabbath is kept on the other side shows
well enough how It would work here There one
does not have to sneak Into ii dingy back room for
a drink, and druahennee la rarely seen. Health
ful recreation Is not only permitted, but encour
aged, and the rights of no one are restricted in any
Father i-ike J. Kvers, rector of St. Andrew's
Church, in Duan« street, said that, while he was
opposed to Bunday opening on general principles,
he believed that the bill had a great many points
to commend it. He said that he could not say
without further study of the subject whether the
opening of the saloon for a restricted period would
tend to make the saloonkeepers keep closed during
the prohibited hours, out that he did think It would
reduce the opportunities for graft.

The steamship Henry M. Whitney, of the Metro

expectations of an official of the company. Little

have been quietly at work since November, wltti

Captain Theodore Hone was in command of the
ship when she sank. He ran her on the rook" in
an effort to avoid a collision with a tugboat and
•four scows which blocked (he channel. He un
doubtedly saved the lives of several persons, and
was exonerated by the local inspectors.
The ship had run afoul of Hell Gate before, OS
.May 23, 1908, and had Just come from the drydock
after undergoing repairs which cost the company
$120,000, including the cost of raising. The original
cost of the vessel was (£O.OOO. and it is estimated
that it will cost 5120.000 more to put her In order

The reference to a third party i.-= considered
significant, as indicating Uw possible imper

The President makes an urgent plea for a new
