Washington, June 21. lleforo con
sideration of the tariff bill resumed
by the senate yesterday morning tho
liousc bill to Incorporate tho supreme
lodge of the Knights of l'ythlas was
reported favorably by henator 1 uuiu
ner and passed Immediately.
A hill was also pasted for the relief

ment for use ns property during the
war, ns well ns one making the first
Monday In September of each year
Labor day n legal holiday.
When the tnrllt bill was laid before
the senate, Mr. Kjlo took the floor and
spoke briefly. Ho made n general ar
gument favoring the Income tux.dw oil
ing on tho decline nf farm tallica In
the west nndthe gradual concentration
of wealth in the hands of the few. lie
argued that the protective system had
been responsible for the concentration
of wealth In tho hands of the few, and
It was Just nnd equitable that tho few
should bear the sham of the burden nf
taxation which their wealth made
them able to bear.
At tho conclusion of -Mr. Kyle
speech Mr. Vest offered four additional
amendments to the Income lax sec
tions. Tho most Important was one to
reduce tho exemption from $4,000 to
83,000, another exempted from the tax
building and loan associations making
loans only to their shareholders, und
another piovldcd that 111 reckoning the
profits of corporations for taxation,

Mr. Teller supported the Income tux
Mr. Sherman followed Mr. Teller In
opposition to the income tax. Mr.
I'ntton, the new republican senator
from Michigan, followed In a set
speech ugulnst the general features of
the tariff bill.
Mr. Allen repelled the Idea covertly
or openly .advanced by the opponents
pf the Income tux that the populists
jiad no regard for property, lie de
clared chemontly that congress was
n the hands of the money power.
I Mr. Jarvis, Senator Vuneo's succes
sor, from North Cnrollna, made his
maiden speech in favor of the income
It was A o'clock when Mr. .Tarvls
finished, and Mr. Hill, who desired to
reply to some of tho remarks, asked
Mr. Ilnnls, 111 charge of the bill, to
jlcldtonu adjournment. Mr. Harris
said he regiettcd that he could not
comply with the request.
Mr. Hill called attention to tho fact
that this was tho first tlmo tills privi
lege had been 1 of used.
Mr. Harris said that If progress had

"The senator says tho time has been
wasted," said Mr. J 1111.
"It has," suld Mr. Harris, grullly,
from his seat.
"Who U the Judgo?" said Mr. Hill.
"I sny It has not been wnsted. Thurs
day 81,000 was fixed as tho exemption
n this h. I argued Thursday that
every 81,0(10 exempted made It more In
defensible. Thursday tho democratic
supporters of the Income tnx stood

"I w 111 make tho senator accept other
responsibilities," said Mr. lllll, his eyes
flashing. The New York senator w us
evidently thoroughly aroused.
"I'roceed," ejaculated Mr, Harris,
without rising from his scat.
"I will not bo ordered by you," said
Mr. lllll, turning upon tho senator from
Tennesseo fiercely. "I will have none
of jour pluntutlou manners exhibited
"Neither do I caro for an exhibition
of tho manners of tho slums of New
York," retorted Jtr. Hurrls,liotly,rIslng
to his feet.
"Thev are better than those of the
plantation. of Tennessee," said Mr.
Mr. Harris mado no reply and Mr.
Hill proceeded to call utteutlon to tho
fact thut ho was In no way responsible
for the delay on this bill.
Mr. Harris, realising that ho could
not forco tho New York senator against
his will, maneuvered so u vote was had
upon an Important vorbal amendment,
and this, disclosing tho ubsenco of n
quorum, ho moved un adjournment,
and at 7:10 the senate adjourned.

fusion raised the point of no quorum,
