WAR REVENUE BiLl
IN ROUGH WATERS
New and Unexpected Obstacles to
DELAY CONFERENCE ACTION
House Will Accept With Modifica
tions Senate Plan to Tax Politi
Washington, Jan. 31.-New and un
expected obstacles to the lonig delayed
war revenue bill developed today, re
suting in settlement of more minoi
disputes between the Senate and
House, but entailing postponement of
final action by the conferees until to
morrow and submission of the confer
ence redraft probably until Tuesday.
To secure instructions from the
House on Senate amendments, in dis
pute, Representative Kitchin, of North
Carolina, the Democrat leader
brought the bill before that body late
today and after spirited discussion,
the House instructed its managers to
accept, with modifications, the Senate
plan for taxing political campaign
Other House )emands.
Demands for separate votes in the
House on two other Senate amend
ments-levying a prohibitory tax on
products of child labor and applying
the Reed "bone dry" prohibition law
to the District of Columbia-were
withdrawn today. Retention 'of these
in the bill now is regarded assured.
While the discussion was proceed
ing in the House, it was learned that
the conferees had agreed to a compro
mise amendment for pay bonuses of
$50 each to enlisted men and nurses
and $200 to officers of the army, navy
and marine corps upon discharge. The
bonuses would be paid to those al
ready discharged as well as to those
substantially given honorable dis
charges or who resign.
Because of the House discussion, no
session of the conferees was held to
(lay. They will meet tomorrows and
expect to finish work on the bill, send
ing it to the printer. It was said,
however, that the delay would prevent
distribution of the final redraft until
next Monday or Tuesday and that the
conference report would not be sub
mitted to the house until Tuesday.
Still Remains in Dispute.
Despite today's action by the House,
the campaign contribution tax still
remains in dispute for settlement to
morrow by the conferees, with a
lively contest in prospect. By a vote
of 244 to 61 the House today instruct
ed its conferees not to accept the Sen
ate amendment, which would levy a
tax of 10 per cent on campaign con
tributions in excess of $500. Imme
diately afterwards the House voted,
191 to 116, to accept the principles of
taxing campaign contributions, but to
limit such taxes to future campaigns.
Representative Moore, of Philadelphia,
Republican, proposed, but withdrew
a suggesstion to make the tax retro
Representative Kitchin, in announc
ing in the House that he would vote
for a tax on future contribution, de
clared he "doubted exceedingly
whether it becomes a law."
Criticism of the Senate proposal
was general during the House debate.

"It was a short time after I began
taking Tanlac before I became able
to do my housework," said Mrs. Fan
nie Ripley, of Gluck Mill; Anderson,
in a statement she gave May 25th.
"I had been in bad health three years
when I began taking Tanlac, and dur
ing the summer of 1914 and 1915 I
had not been able to do my cooking.
I had suffered from indigestion, and
everything I ate hurt me.. I had very
bad spells of indigestion and head
aches and nervous attacks. It was
soon relieved by Tanlac, however, and
the indigestion was stopped. The

headaches right away. I soon got so

Members referred to it as a "bluff"
and "buncombe" and "a fine for doing
in 1918 what was permissible by law."
"I never took any contribution from
the packers, despite the contrary re
ports," declared Republican Leader
Mann, who argued that the Senate
provision 'was indefinite and that "it
goes back to 1916, 1914 and 1912 and
that shows how rediculous it is.
"We have the Senate now in a po
sition where they will have to vote
favorably on the proposition or admit
that they were bluffing," declared
Representative Garner, Texas, urging
concurrence in the Senate provision.

situation to stop the one thing which
