Lean members of the wavs and means
comiuittee met yesterday to consider

tion taken was a decision not to re
move the tax of lo cnts a putiud on
tea. The committee will not take up
or disturb the tariff on imports, as the
members claim it would open up the
whole subject of tariff revision. The
comn!itt-e will not grant any hearings
while fiair.irig the bill, as full hearings
were given during the last session of
congress, and since then briefs and
statements of various interests have
ben received. Tatties who are in
terested, however, can tile briefs or
statements with the comiuittee. No
decision was reached as to the amount
of the reduction that is to be made.

ion that there would be no decided ef

representation of the southern states

tie subject would lie discussed, but
he thought the committee would favor
the plan of basing representation upon
the number of inhabitants.
Discussing the general subject of
reapportionment Hopjiiu said: "The
ommiitee n census will. meet during
the first week ef the session to frame
bill providiug for reapportionment,
think that a proposition w:ll ln-
adoptcd wluch will increase the pres
ent membership of the house. It has
been suggested that we authorize one
member for every 1!'?..hh inhabitanis.
Ttiat seems to be the ratio that is in
general favor among niemlH-ts of the
committee. This proposition would
entafl an increased membership of
from fifteen to twen;y members.
"According to calculations I have
made this reaper' ion men t would add
members to the house from New York
and Illinois and perhaps other state.
States like Nebraska and Maine might

Springfield, Ills.. Nov. 21. Ilepre
sentatives of the Illinois Manufactur
ers' association appeared before the
board of equalization yesterday to
discuss the assessment of txk coun
ty. At a preliminary meeting of the
association members to arrange a
plan of procedure lKfore the board it
was decided that addresses be made
by Martin B. Madden: E. S. Comvoy.
of W. W. Kimball & Co.; W. S. How
ard, of the'Deering Harvester com
pany: William Puff Haynie. of the
Illinois Steel company; William Cur
rer. of tie Architectural Irou League,
and Frank T. Fowler, of the Fowler
Cycle works. These .gentlemen talkitl
uikjii different phases of the situation,
looking generally to creating the im
pression tnat Cook county property is
high. The general appeal was that
the board refrain from raising the as
sessment even bv a small per cent.
Much of the addresses were con lined
to statistics showing market values of
all classes of property in Cook and
comparing the same with the assess
ment reported 'this year.
Arguments of a Chicago Man.
William Duffllaynie contended that
the Cook county lioard of review had
done nothing more than it had the le
gal right to do in reducing the assess
ments, ami quoted the law which
givess the board of review power to do
anything which the ass ssor might
have done. His argument caused
Charles A. Works, member of the
board from Kockford. presiding, to
ask Haynie. "Io you, then, consider
that this act which was born in Chi
cago is inoperative so far as ouadren-
nial assessment of real estate is con
cerned:?" Haynie replied he did not
so consider it. but continued to argue
along the line which indicated that
he did lx-lieve it that wav.
Complaint of Chicago XcYnier,
Works said he thought the board
and the atlortiev general had been
placed in a false li-jht before the peo-
'e by the Chicago newspapers, which
h id charged that the attorney general
advised the "board -that it was its tiutv
place the ascsmeiit ba U where it
was in iS'ki hov-.-msc of unlaw! nl re
duction by the board of review. This,
Works said, was n..f true. IP- did
not believe ihe board had any right to
raise the assessment tit' Cook county
more than the lo per cent, provided in
the statute. Alderman Fowler said
he did not believe the city govern
ment of Chicago is asking for .-iny
inore taxes than are needed, but he in
