Washington, April f2.-By a strict party vote, the senate finance com mittee decided finally today that no public hearings would be given upon the tariff bill when it reaches the senate.

A nmumber of western senators, including Sena tors Myers of Montana and Ashurst of Arizona, will not participate in the conference as they have decided to support the free-wool and sugar pro gram if it is approved by the house.

Those who will participate will insist, however, that there has been no eift..rc to form an offensive alliance against the maasure and as proof of thb', tvy point to the fact that Louisiana sen ators and others Interested in a change of free-sugar and froe-wool provisions have not been in.loud'd in the 'confer ence. Majority Report. Presenting the completed democratic tariff revision bill to the house today, the democrats of tie ways and moons committee recommended a radical re aijustment of the entire fiscal policy of the nition. They proposed to make an income tax, the means of accur ately adjusting the funds to be raised by taxation to corresp)ond with the necessities for government expendl tures. The report, after outlining the oper ations of the proposed income tax, said: "The revenues from all income taxes readily respond to changes of rates and the latter can be raised or lowered within a few days' notice without dis turbances such as general tariff changes occasion. It is believed that a budget or other effective system by which congress may be able closely to calculate and determinate in advance forthcoming expenditures, soon will be devised, in which event it Should be come easy to maintain a closo balance between expenditures and revenues, such as is practiced in most other civilized countries.

Washington, April 22.- Colonel Goethals, chief engineer of the Panama canal, In a report to the war department today, reiterated the hope he expressed some time ago that he would pass a ship through the canal before the close of the present year. The statement came in response to art' instuiry from secretary Garrison as to whether it would be possible to grant the request of Captain Roald Amundsen, the explorer, that he be allowed to take his ship Eram through the canal when he starts for the Ant arctic regions next winter. Colonel Goethals said: "The opening of the Panama canal for the passage of vessels has always been contingent on the question of slides and the completion of lock gates. The present schedule contem plates admitting the water into Cule bra cut early in October and the com pletion of one flight of locks at either end of the canal by that same date. The passage of the boats then depends upon the condition of the slides. It is hoped that we will be able to pass a ship before the close of the year, and if this can he accomplished the Fram will have no difficulty in mak ing the passage of the (anal and every facility will he offered for its doing so."
