Arb Still on the Firing
Washington, July. 23. Indications
this afternoon are very strong that
the tariff conference committee will
report in favor of the following rates
on articles which have ; been the
cause of so much recent controversy:
Coal, 45 cents per ton.
Iron ore, 25 cents.
Hides, T per cent ad valorem
Lumber, $1.25 per 1,000. - '
There will be more opposition to
hide reduction than to any other of
la Executive SeHKion.
Washington, July 23. The most
striking sign of the approaching quick
and decisive action on the tariff bill
appeared this afternoon when the con
ference committee excluded the clerk
and everybody else except the con-
strirtiv executive session. It was un
derstood the committee would stick to I
its task, with possibly a brief recess
for dinner this evening, until iron
hides, coal, lumber,, wood pulp, print j
paper and structural -steel were dis-
posed of. There are good signs for a
finish of the conference work tonight.

Corporation Tni Feature.
Washington, D. C, July 23. The de
termination of Congressman Payne to
have the tariff schedule on wool re
vised; the determination of the Michi
gan senators and their followers r.ot to
budge on the iron ore duty; mutterings
against the new tariff bill by the house
standpatters, and President Taft's
unyielding determination to have his
own way on a downward revision on
raw materials, all contributed to a
brewing storm last nignt m me lanu

LIFE OF HARRIMAN BY INVESTORS
New York. July 23. Dr. G. A. Dixon,
Edward H. Harriman's physician, who
has just arrived here from abroad,
said that Mr. Harriman's health had
greatly improved since he went to
Europe and that the financier was n
good condition when he left him at
Bad-Gartein, Austria. .
"Mr. Harriman is a man accustomed
to a long day's work." said Dr. Dixon,
"and he needed a vacation. He de
cided some ti.-ne ago. long before he
sailed, to take a rest abroad. All he
needed was a rest. He has taken it,
and it has done him a world of good.
When he went on his last trip to the
west he nl.mnw! his nresent trio to
Europe. There is absolutely no truth
in the report that he is suffering from
spinal trouble. The ligaments of hi?
back were a trifle stiff for a short time
but that has all passed away."

From another : source It was said
that Mr. Harriman, instead of obeying
the orders of his physicians that ha
must take a complete rest from bust
nes3 cares in order to recover com
pletely his health. Is conducting im
consent to the corporation tax as a per
manent measure instead of limiting its
life to one or two years. The

proposal and obeyed the president's
behest to make the tax a regular feat

Serjeant Ie Hart, When He Saw

Annapolis, Md., July 23. The
fifth day of the inquiry into
death of Lieutenant James N. Si
opened with Sergeant of Marine
James De Hart, whose cross-exam
ination was continued from yester
day, on the witness stand.
It was apparent no one of the of-
sibility of having the weapons about
him after the shooting. Sergeant
Ije Mart testified that some oilicei
at'Che fieeqe'tif 'the shooting hartded
him a revolver with the curt com
mand to "take this."
l)e Hart is a bright appearing
young officer, hardly more than
boy. and he created considerably
amusement in court by frankly ad
mitting he had been cut with friends
the night in question and was
"slightly under the influence of
liciuor." Ilevsaid. however,, lie knew
what was going on around him.
De Hart said "Sutton carried two
revolvers" and that he (Dellart) did
not stop tovtalk with him long. The
witness did not know about the
trouble Sutton had had in camp, but
thought something was up when he
saw the two guns. Soon afterwards
I" Hart heard the shots and ran
back to the scene of the shooting.
