Makes Passage by Senate
After Colleague Conference,
An agreement which will insure
passage of the tax bill by the Senate
with important amendments, supported
by nearly all the Repub11
cans, became a certainty yesterday.
A tentative understanding: on the
proposed changes waa reached at a
conference between Senator McCormlck.
of Illinois, leader of the compromise
movement; Senator Lenroot.
of Wisconsin, and Senator Capper,
of Kansaa, on the one hand, and j
Senators Penrose, Watson and Lodge
on the other.
Senators Penrose. Wataon and
Lodge Indicated their willingness to
accept amendments in substantially '
. the form iij which they were tirorked
out in conference during the past |
few days. Senators McCovnick and |
Lenroot were authorised to put the j
amendments in shape for formal j
presentation. The amendments will j
be submitted to the" full Republican j
membership of the Finance Committee
today, and, if approved, j
a* expected, will be offered In the
Senate aa committee amendments.
The amendments as tentatively
proposed Include the following:
*artax Rate M Pet Ceat. A
maximum surtax rate of 50 per
cent instead of 32 per fcent in the
Pending bill, and 66 per cent in the
present law. effective January 1,
Reductions in all the surtax rates
on incomes below $66,000, the pending
bill proposing a reduction on
incomes of less than $20,000. but
slightly increasing rates on incomes
between $30,000 and $66,000, effective
January 1, 1*22.
Retention of the present corporation
Income tax of lfr per cent on
corporations having a net income
less than $50,000 with an increase
15 per cent on corporations with
lar^es Incomes, effective January l'.
Retention of the corporation capital
stock tax which Is repealed in
the Senate bill.
Repeal of the freight, passenger
and express taxes, effective January
An Increase in the maximum rate
of tax on estates from 25 per cent
to 40 per cent, this rate to apply
on estates above $100,000,000.
Repeal of so*ne of the miscellaneous
"nuisance" taxes which are
retained In the pending bill.
Adoption of the Calder amendment
increasing the tax on whisky
Under the agreement the excess
profits tax will be repdajed. effective
January 1. 1*22. Just as provided
In the pending t>Ul.
Normal Tax tJackaaged.
There will be no change in the
normal tax rates.
Senator Penrose and other Republican
leaders were reluctant to
accept the modification ef surtax
rates, but realised that if they did
not do so a coallt'.on between Republicans
and Democrats for higher
surtax rates was likely.
It Is still somewhat uncertain as
to whether a graduated corporation
income tax will be approved
or the flat rate of 13 per cent, as I
provided In the pending bill, accepted.
The elimination of the
12.000 exemption v>n corporations
was discussed, but tentative decision
was to allow this exemption I
to remain in the bill.
The Increased taxes on estates
will produce only $14,000,000 addi- |
tlonal. and it was argued by Sena
tor Watson that this hardly made
It worth while making the change.,!
Senators McCormlck and Lenroot.

Senator Watson proposed that a

Increase of Independents
Threatens Party Control
By ROBERT J. BE5DER.
Republican administration lead
| era, on a plea for party unity, are
seeking- to draw back into the fold
increasingly independent Senators
who hare virtually divorced themselves
from the so-called organisation
These independent elements, prlI
marily the agricultural bloc, but
including former Progressives, %are
irritated at and distrustful of the
Senate leadership to date, and are
resisting the pressure to pull them
The tug of battle Is developing
one of the most interesting Senate
situations since the administration
of the late Theodore Roosevelt when
Republican leaders created a
"Cherokee strip"?a special seating
arrangement?for a group of Senators
who weren't "under control."
Ksayss Declined Judgeship.
It was not surprising, therefore,
to thosa familiar with the background
of the present Senate situation
that Senator K&nyon, a leader
in the agricultural bloc, declined 'a
Presidential proffer of a Federal
judgeship in Iowa. It Is the agricultural
bloc that constitutes the
heart of the situation ?- a nearlyorganised
group of Western and
Midwestern genators revolting at
Eastern rule of the chamber.
The fact, however, that it is
nearly <ygani*fd. and has as yet
developed no actual leader for complete
organisation, is the w?%k link
in the chain of circumstances upon
wtych the old guard leaders%*are putting
their pressure. And leadership
of the bloc is rendered difficult
by thfc fact that both Democrat* and
Republicans comprise Its make-up.
The situation Is particularly interesting
in that it might develop
a ne'w political control of the Senate
and possibly sow the seed for
a new or greatly altered party,
starting during the Congressional
campaign next year. On the other
hand, lack of leadership might result
in the present movement evap'
orating Into thin air.
CssiltioM Withhold Leslewhlf.
This lack of leadership is due to
different things. In the first place,
among certain of the independent
Senators there is mutual distrust
and some evidences of jealousy. In
the second place, certain of this
element desire to play a "lone
I hand?" declaring that to line up
with any faction would Impair their
I independence of action. Finally
j there '? the presence of Democrats
in the so-called agricultural and
progressive bloc, and the feeling
is that definite organisation of tfie
whole, embodying bi-partisan conflict
with the regular Republican
organisation, could scarcely ba contemplated
unless or until the time
were reached that a new party were
This latter contingency is the
plea Republican administration
leaders are now stressing in an effort
to draw back tho^ different
blocs opposed to the present organisation.
But the other phase
of tha situation?the lack of organisation
of the opposition blocs
?is the practical means being employed
to the end desired.
For example, the meeting at Senator
Capper's house Wednesday
night could nbt be accurately called
a meeting of tha agricultural blocRather
it wfcs a conference of different
faction representatives designed
to efTect an understanding
with the "regjular" leaders. Senator
Lodge was personally on hand
to prove the interest of the organisation.
But all members of the
"opposition" were not present.
There were inquiries among nome
of these in the cloakrooms yesterday
as to why they were not invited.
Situation Ceases Irrlt ?!?*.
This, of course, was a situation
made possible by tha fact that the
independents Eavq. no leader. And
the Irritations growing out of such
a situation would naturally tend to
make resistance againat return to
the united organisation machinery
easier to break.
As things stand, disintegrated
minority blocs control the 8enate
in the matter of opposition. United
under a strong leadership they
could. If thay desired, wrest Senate
control from the prfeaent Senatorial
rulers. ?r thtlr constructive
program?If they could agree.
To keep them separated and. above
all. to break up the agricultural
bloc, appears to be the purpose of
It le In no wles a fight Involving
President Harding. It is wholly one
within the Senate Itself, resulting
from delay In forming and carrying
out a program satisfactory to
Western and Midwestern Senators
of different classes.
