THE WOOL BILL PASSED
After Defeating Underwood and Orig
inal LaFollette Bills, Senate Coal
ition Puts Through Compromise
?Measure Providing for Reductions
in Wool Duties.
Out of what had appeared to be
chaotic condition in the Senate, there
suddenly arose Thursday a coalition
of Democrats and Insurgent Republi
cans, which bowled over the regular i
organization and passed a compro
mise bill for the revision of the wool
len tariff, by 4 8 to 32.
This new force In the Senate unit
ed on a reduction of tariff duties all
down the line and, flushed with vic
tory is threatening not only to enact
the so-called House "farmers' free
list-' bill Into law next Tuesday, but
to put through a cotton bill as well.
The insurgents want the sugar and
steel schedule included in the pro
The House Democratic leaders are
not willing to accept ihe compromise
bill as it passed the Senate, but they
are more than willing to meet the
Senate conferees. Chairman Under
wood, of the House ways and means
committee, expressed the belief that
a bill satisfactory to both houses
was more than likely to be agreed
This would put the wool issue up
to President Taft, and there is much
speculation as to what his course
v/ould be. While Mr. Taft would
make no comment on the situation,
lhere have been strong Intimations
from the White House within the
past few weeks that he would not
hesitate to use the veto on any tariff
schedules passed in advance of the
report of the regular tariff board.
Assumption of power by the Dem
ocratic-insurgent combination was
the outgrowth of a similar coalition
formed on June 21, to send the wool
en bill to the finance committee with
instructions to report It hack July
10. The standpat Senators then ad
mitted that their control of the ud
per House of Congress had been
broken and that they would no long
er hold themselves responsible. The
finance committee, shifting the re
spondbility to the floor of the Sen
ate, reported the bill back adversely
the next day.
Senator Penrose, chairman of the
finance committee, freely predicted
that Mr. Taft would veto any wool
measure that might come out of the
conference. 'Both Democratic and
regular Republican leaders seem to
feel that a veto would not be to their
The bill as passed by the Senate
was drawn by Senator LaFollette
and was a compromise between the
Underwood bill, which passed the
Democratic House, and the original
LaFollette bill, both forced out of
Some Idea of the compromise may
be hud from the proposed rates on
raw wool. The House bill proposed
a rate of 20^ per cent, ad valorem.
The original LaFollette bill proposes
4 0 per cent. The compromise fixes
the rate at 35, per cent. It is pre
dicted that the conference will put it
at 30 per cent.
The progressive programme Is to
remain in session until action may be
had on the several schedules named.
The agreement under which the wool
bill was put through extends to the
"farmers free list," in modified form.
The Democratic Senators are neith
er so unanimous or as enthusiastic
as the insurgent Republicans for a
continued revision. They say that
much will depend on the President's

SAW THE HUMAN SOUL.
Tells of Many Experiments He Has

Dr. Duncan MacDougall, of Haver

declares his belief that the human
soul weighs from one-half ounce to
nearly an ounce and a quarter, and
further that the soul substance is
blended with the plotoplasm of the

THEY WON'T GET RICH.
The Scale of Wages Paid the Work
men in the Orient.
Clarence Poe, in the July World's
Work, gives some interesting fi.mres
concerning the pay of laborers in
various oriental countries. In China
a member of tihe emperor's grand
council told me that the average rate
of wages throughout the empire is
probably 18 cents a day. In Japan it
is probably not more, and in Jndia it
is much less. .
The best mill workers in Osaka
average 22 cents aday; the laborers
at work on Che new telephone Uno in
Peking get 10 cents; wheelbarrow
coolies in Shanghai, $4 a month;
linotype operators in Tokio, only 45
cents a day; presmen, 50 cents; po
liceman, 40 cents; the iron workers
in Hankpv average about 10 cents
a day; street car conductors in Seoul
make 35 cents; farm laborers about
Nankou about 10 cents.
The highest oriental wages are
paid in the Phillipines, where the or
dinary laborer gets from 20 cents to
50 cents a day.
WANTED TO KILL EVERYBODY.
Hindu With Rifle Ran Amuck in
Crowded Chicogo Street,
While the police were planning
to send him to an asylum for crimi
nal insane, N. Hausin, a Hindu, and
former member of the British army,
who wounded five persons and caused
a panic in Chicago's crowded down
town street Wednesday by discharg
ing a rifle at the passing throng, sat
in a cell and jeered at his guards.
"I bought the rifle to kill all the
bad people in Chicago." he said, "I
hate all of your white American
faces. You have been cruel to me,
and I wanted to kill everybody."
Hausin came to this country from
India four years a?o, and worked in
a steel mill in Piitsburg before com
ig to Chicago. Poerty and loneli
ness are believed to have affected
his mind already possibly deficient

Speech Delivered in the Honse of
Commons Indicates Nearness of a
Crisis in Dispute Between France
and Germany Over the Morocco
A cablegram from London says
the most pessimistic view regarding
Lhe aruteness of thj Moroccan, situ
ation was taken Thursday in the
comment of the prime minister,
when >he delivered a speech o the
House of Commons which had been
carefully prepared. He stated that
Great Britain proposed to stand for

Further testimony to the gravity
of the situation Is given by the fact
that the prime minister had taken
the leader of the Opposition into the
Government's confidence, and Mr.
Mr. .'Oalfour's declaration was no less
firm than Mr. Asquith's.
The prime mjnisterls statement
is couched in strong terms. At the
very opening he said:
"It is obvious that this Moroccan
question has reached a point at
which it will become increasingly
difficult embarrassing and anxioua
unless a solution is found."
Later he said: "We thought it
right from the beginning to make
clear that failing of a settlement
such as I have indicated, we must
become an active party In the dis

Such plain speaking on a question
frought with possibilities of a great
European war has not been heard in
the British Padliament in a great
many years. The outcome of the
siuation appears to rest almost wlhol
ly on Germany's shoulders. If as
some German papers say, Germany
has reached the stage of national de
velopment where the necessities of
her population demand that she en
large, and imposes conditions on
France which Great Britain thin*
threaten hey Interests, the only re
sult, so far as those best informed
see it, will be the oft-threatened and
long averted European war .
The majority of the German news
papers profess to think that Mr.
Lloyd-George warning was not ad
dressed to Germany, but a sort of
general proclamation of principles.
The prime minister made it plain,
however, that Great Britain would
not consent to some of the ideas of
Germany. Great 'Britain feels that
Germany thought she co?ld take ad
vantage of the crisis, and that Eng
