Man Who Drafted Schedule For Wil

and Means Committee That Rates
Should Be Reduced to Prevent I
American Manufacturers Charging
Exorbitant Prices For oIedicinal
Chemicals
ChemicalsWashington
Washington Nov 11 With few
exceptions the interests affected by
Schedule A of the Dnigley tariff
which includes over 100 articles un
der the heading of Chemicals Oils
and Paints do not desire any
changes in the rates of duties now
operative This was indicated at the
first hearing for the consideration of
the revision of the tariff held before
the house committee on ways and
means
There were few requests for in
creases in the present rates of duty
A number of those appearing before
the committee were not prepared to
present arguments for changes in the
rates and expressed a desire that the
present schedule be continued A
strong advocate for lower tariff rates
was Albert Plaut who drafted the
I schedule for medicinal chemicals for
the Wilson bill The duties on me
dicinal chemicals he said are
mostly prohibitive being in most
cases 25 per cent which is a prohib
itive rate The duties are practically
the same as the tariff of 1883 What
was good for the trade then is not
good now There are less manufac
turers of medicinal chemicals than
thanI
control the home market If the
rates of duty were reduced to 15 per I
cent it would prevent the domestic
manufacturer from arbitrarily fixing
the prices Vnich In many cases are
exorbitant The entire schedule is
antiquated It is not fair to the con
sumers
In addition to recommending tiui
medicinal chemicals now scheduled
at 25 per cent ad valorem should be
I reduced to 15 per cent Mr Plaut said
that certain articles cf a similar na
ture should be taken off the free ligi
naming quinine as an example anl
recommending for ita 15 per cent ad
v lorem rate
N B Arnold representing the var
nish manufacturers national associa
tion declared that varnish manufac
turers of the country are satisfied
with present conditions He created
much amusement by his frank state
ments with regard to the oftrepeat
ed assertion that surplus production is
unloaded 1 on foreign markets by
American manufacturers at a less
price than is demanded in the home
market declaring that this was not
true ri
Dr Springer representing a chem
ical firm of Cincinnati asked that
3 15 cents a pound be imposed on
prussiate of soda instead of the ad
valorem rate of 25 per cent which
now applies under paragraph 3 for
chemical compounds He said that
the low price of this article abroad
made it impossible to manufacture
at a profit in this country He asked
for a 10 per cent ad valorem on
tetrachloride of tin but admitted that
this would be a prohibitive rate of
duty which would permit him to in
crease his profits

Postage Idea
London Nov 11John Henniker
Heaton father of the imperial penny
postage idea addressing a big audi
ence in the royal colonial institute ad
vocated the transmission of cable
grams at a penny a word He de
clared that an immediate end ought
to be put to the present cable mo
nopoly at any cost and that the cable
companies should be bought out at
the market price by the civilized gov
ernments of the world The first step
to this end would be a conference of
the postmaster x generals of Europe
and the establishment of the penny
a word rate in this hemisphere then
there should be a conference with the
postal authorities in America

From Death Valley
San Bernardino C3 Nov 11
Death vpiny and the surrounding
country are in the throes of a series
of earthquakes which began three
weeks ago and the most violent of
which occurred last Wednesday morn
ing before daylight carrying conster
nation among the mining camps and
resulting in many miners and pros
pectors fleeing from the district
Samuel Lawrence one of the first
miners to reach here with details of
the earthquake said that for three
weeks past there have been one or
two rumbles daily They have all
been light with the exception of that
which upheaved the district Wednes
day The dismal crags of the Funeral
range s erred fairly to totter when
the severe shock came last week
Miners were tossed from their bunks
camp equipment was scattered about
horses and mules stampeded and im
mense boulders thrown down At
daybreak the miners commenced to
leave

TO SEAT GLASS MEN
President Howe Galls It fi Gov
ernment by Injunction
Denver Colo Nov 11The first
real fight in the twentyeighth annual
convention of the American Federa
tion of Labor occurred in the unseat
ing of the delegates of the flint glass
workers by a practically unanimous
voteThe
The first day of the convention the
credentials committee reported seat
ing all delegates except those of the
electrical workers whose case was
referred to a special committee the
operative plasterers association and
the flint glass workers
The other cases being disposed of
the fight over the seating of the flint
glass workers delegates was begun
For many years the flint glass work
ers were members of the federation
but withdrew on account of a contro
versy growing out of a question of
jurisdiction with the Glass Bottle
Blowers association
T H Rowe president of the Flint
Glass Workers association and elect
ed as a delegate from the Ohio State
federation led the fight for the ad
mission of himself J F robin ot
Muncie Ind W W Davis of Bei
mont county Ohio and Frederick
Shane of Toledo O
Mr Rowe protested that the en
forcement of the letter of the consti
tution against him and his comrades
was equivalent to government by in
junction John Mitchell spoke in
support of the exclusion of the flint
glass workers He said he stood
I firmly upon the constitution and the
law of the federation
President Gompers closed the dis
cussion with a statement of his posi
tion in which he expressed the hope
that the differences between the war
ring unions would yet be adjusted
The vote was then taken which un
