.Amendment Passed by Sena.te, 60 to
11.-Vote on the Troublesome
Question Reached Unex
Washington,'July 2.-The corpora
tion tax amendment, which was sug
gested by President Taft, is an inte
gral part of the tariff bill as that bill
After much tribulation, the senate
reached a vote shortly before adjourn
ing at ~ o'(lock p. in. today, and the
a e:ndmnent wa~s agreed to. 60 to 11.
Many democrats voted with most of;
theO repulicans for the amendment.
Only three demoel?ats voted- against
the provision on tihe final vote, but
some refrained from voting at all.*
The test vote was on the substitu
tion of the corporation tax amend
ment for the income tax provision,
and on that vote forty-five senators
~cast their ballots in the affirmative
and thirty-one in the negative. On
:this ballot all the democratic votes
were cast in favor of the income tax,
which also received the support of a
.number of the insurgent republicans.
.Tihe senate tomorrow will enters up
on the administrative features of the
tariff bill, probably taking up the
maximum and minlimum rate provis
ion. There was a steady fire of ora
tory fro>m the beginning of the session
at 10 o 'clock until- 4.30 o'clock this
afternoon. When the fire had ceased
Mr. Aldrich took th~e floor and made
a request for unanimous agreement
for a vote on the corpo.ration tax
amendment tomorrow at 1 o'clock.
Previous to presenting this request
there had been much conferring be
tween Mr. Aldricih and Messrs. Bail
ey, Cummins, Borah and other oppo
nents of the amendment, and it was
generally supposed that they had
reached an understanding that the
vote should be taken tomorrow as sug
est ed by Mr. Aldrich. When it seem
ed that such a compact was probable,
Senator Cummins entered formal ob
jection to the unanimous agreement
which not only had the effect of pre
venting the fixing of the vote tomor
row, but of forcing it today. The
first vote was upon the motion to sub
stitute the corporation amendment
for the Lodge countervailing dutvy
amendment, and this prevailed, 45 to
31. The affirma-tive vote was cast en
irely by Republicans, even Senator
McEnery, of Louisiana, who 'has voted
with the majority side for all protec
ive measures, throwing his ballot
with hbis own party.
Immediately following Mr. Lodge
withdrew his amendment, and a vote.
was taken on a motion to substitute
the corporation tax amendment for
the income tax amendment offered
jointly by Messrs. Bailey and Cum
The resu:lt was an exact counterpart
of the vote on the previous roll call.
N'ext came the vote upon the cor
-porationi tax prorision upon its own
merits, but before this ballot could
be reached Mr. Bacon sought to ob
tain actien upon two amendments to*
that provision presented by himself,
both of whicih Mr Aldrich m#ved to
lay upon the table with successful re

Becausc he did he fell into a sharp
clash with its author. The effect of
tble point of order was to cut off de
btte, but.1r. Aldrich chanced to drop
the remark that he would "allow''
Mr. Bacon to proceed. The form of
the expression seemed to incense the
Georgia senator, and he retorted
sharply to the effect that he was "not
surprised that Mr. Aldrich should as
sume such a manner. because ihe had
been dictating to the senate so long
that he was accustomed to use lan
*na'e of that kind.' When the
Z1nImnent was laid on the table by
a vote of 42 to 32. t-he Georgia sena
or immedia-tely oresented ariother
amendment requiring the taxation of
bonds. \Vhich was re.jected. 41 to 34.
Thie.n. without any preliminaries.
the final vote was taken: It was upon
agreeing to the corporation tax
mendment as a part of tib:e tariff
bill. This amendment was adopted,
0 to 11.
Of the negative votes eight were
ast by republicans and three by dem
crats, th-e republicans being Borah,
Bristom, Bulkeley, Clapp, Cummins,
Dolliver,' Heyward and LaFollette,
and the democrats, Chamberlain,
Hughes and Shiveley. Ampng- those
in the affirmative were.: Bail :ey,

PESERVING FENCE POSTS
Every farmer is familiar with th~
rotting of his fence posts at the su:
face of the ground. The labor of re
placing them and how to secure nel
and durable posts are soarees of cor
stant annoyance and expense. Eve
the more durable woods, such a
chestnut, white oak and cedar, de
cay in eight or ten years. It is tru
that there are a few kinds of woo
in the United States, such as locus
and osage-orange, which give mae
longer service, but their supply, neve
very large, is rapidly becoming es
hausted, and the farmer must no'
look to some other source for hbi
posts. Perhaps directly on ~his fart
there may be a patch of woods whic
inludes such triees as black oal
beech, maple or pine, and cottonwood
and willows may grow along th
banks of his streams. These are tree
which heretofore have been thougib

Decay is not a simple process likE

done by injecting into it substance:
One of the~ most widely used pre
servatives is ereosote, one of the by

Sjeeted into the wood, decay will be
ui retarded indefinitely and an old-field
f pine or a cottonwood fence post wher
e properly treated will easily give a lifE
- of twenty yea.rs or longer. Such 2

or' painting, is used, the creosotE
should be applied at a temperatu.re oi
about 180 degrees F. Two coat:
yshould be given at least twenty-foum
hours apart. If the posts are dipped
direetly into the preservative, athe
