HO CHANGE IN TARIFF DEMOCRATIC SENATORS SUPPORT BILL AS REPORTED. CRITICISE ONLY II FEW RATES Duties on Chemicals, Oils, Paints, Glassware and Mctalo Dis posed of. Washington, D. C. Tho Underwood-Simmons tariff revision bill, as agreed upon by tho democrats of the senate commltteo, went through a full day's session of tho sennte dem ocratic caucus with practically no change, and with harmonious support for most of tho alterations the finance commltteo members had made in tho original Underwood bill. Tho tariff duties In chemicals, oils and paints, on earthenware and glass ware, ind on two-thirds of the arti cles comprised in the metal schedule had been dUposed of when the cau cus adjourned. Democratic members of tho finance committee met to finish redrafting tho incomo tax section of tho bill. Tho Important changes to bo made In this provision, reducing the exempted Incomes from $4,000 to $3,000, prob ably will bo completed and the In come tax and administrative features or the' bill then will bo turned over to tho caucus Tor consideration. Criticism or tho tariff bill in party coherence was limited to a rew spe cific rates, and a half dozen Items wero sent back to the finance com mittee for further Investigation and report. Tho committee report put ting cement on tho free list was sus tained after long debate. The pro posed duties on flaming arc light car bons, on Btalnetl glass and on field glasses, optical and surgical Instru ments and photographic lenses came In for criticisms and were referred back to thedemocrats of the finance committee. Cheap automobiles ns necessaries of business and farming life were the subject of much of the "debate." The financo committee democrats had al ready cut the rates of the Under wood bill from 45 per cent ad valor em to 31 per cent on motor cars val ued at less than $1,500. Several eral democratic senators urged a rurther cut and recommended that the tariff be only 10 per cent on ma chines valued at less than $1,000. This demand was made on tho ground that cheap automobiles wero now commercial necessities. Tho caucus did not settle the auto mobile controversy, but asked Mr. Simmons and his colleagues on tho finance committee to Investigate further. Advocates or the lower duty claim the government would lose little rev enue, as the high priced machines pay most or the tariff. Boy Scouts to Carry Message. Wahlngton.

Insurance Commissioners, Tho attention of Insurance Commis sioner Clancy has been called to a condition which prevails regarding rates In Lincoln regarding fire, light ning and tornado insurance nnd tho difference In other cltlos In Nebraska. Ono of tho leading Insurance agents In the state called 'on tho commission er and brought with him evidence sufficient to convince tho commission er that there was an effort on foot by certain companies to freeze out local companies which have not so cured a strong foundatioon on which to do business. Ono party In Lincoln, working for less thnn $50 a month, pays $1.50 por $100 for his Insurance. A widow who Is supported by her children pays $1.25 on the some kind of Insurance. A man who is considered well fixed pays only 85 cents per $100 on his In. surance. A man working for $2 per day pays $1 per $100. Another man, because of close friendship to the agent, pays 90 cents per $100. A poor laboring man pays G5 cents on a three-year policy. A man drawing a salary of $12,000 pays only 80 cents per $100 for bis insurance. The same class of rates cost In Omaha, Beatrice, Fremont and other cities of the state $1.95. Tho commissioner believes that In localities where local companies have secured a good business foreign com panies are seeking by cutting the rate to force the former out .of business. It Is known that in tho past local companies hnve been forced to quit, because of the competition or foreign companies, which cut rates down to such a figure that tho locals could not meet the cut, and it will b6 the policy of the Insurance department to do everything to protect the locals.
