Measure Requires That All Agree

ton For Future Delivery Mutt Be In
Writing With Revenue Stamp At
tsched Tax Refunded on Proof
Actual Delivery Has Been Made.
Washington, Juno 30. A Btamp tax
f one-tenth of one cent a pound on
Igreements for sale of cotton for fu
ture delivery wan recommended to
the senate Democratic caucus by the
majority of the finance committee.
The committee members agreed to
adopt an amendment embodying the
Idea that had been offered by Senator
Clarke of Arkansas, with modifica
tions. As it was reported to the sen
ate today, the provision requires that
all agreements for the purchase or
sale of cotton for future delivery
must be in writing, with a revenue
stamp attached, but allows a refund
of the tax upon proof ''that the cotton
contracted for has been actually de
livered within a given time.
Encouraged by the action of the
finance committee Democrats in tax
ing cotton options, Senator Cummins
of Iowa and bis supporters will make
a determined stand to extend the cot
ton futures amendment, to tax all se
curities or commodities for future de
livery. The finance committee agreed to
postpone the date when the reduced.
tsgar duties shall go Into effect until
March 1, 1914, Tba ,actkm v shaplr

The majority, of the committee
agreed to report in favor of a modlfl
cation of the Income tax amendment,
so that it will apply to incomes accru
ing since March 1, 1913 a date sub
sequent to the proclamation of the
amendment to the federal constitu
tion making the income tax' valid.
Chairman Blmmons and his col
leagues also made a concession to the
California sweet wine producers by
postponing until Jan.'l 1914, the date
on which the increased tax on brandy
used in fortification of wines shall be
come effective. The senate finance
committee Democrats made a number
of changes in schedules. Antimony

Senator Simmons believes he will
be able to report the tariff bill Into
the senate before the end of tin
POLICE DRIVE OFF
Led By Suffraget, Latter Tried to
London, June 3C. Miss Sylvia
Pankhurst, the younger of the two
militant daughters of Mrs. Emmeline
Pankhurst, addressed a so-called free
speech demonstration In Trafalgar
square. The' demonstration was or
derly until Miss Pankhurst said:
"It Is useless for you to come all
tbe way from the East End unless
you do something. You are slaves It
you do not revolt against allowing
these women to die. Let us go to
Downing street and Imprison the min
isters In their bouses."
As Miss Pankhurst finished, a sec
tion of tbe demonstrators, mostly
dock workers, followed a woman car
rying a flag of the Women's Social
and Political union and rushed .to
ward Downing street before the po
lice were able to check them.
The police soon arrived and began
to clear tbe street, whereupon tbe
dockers attacked the officers. After a
sharp but brief tussle the police
drove tbe mob back toward Trafalgar
square and captured tbeflag.

"Neither can, secretary Witsenr ba
