WASHINGTON. .Inn. 11 When the
House went Into Committee of the Whole
to-day the time, ncrniillnir, to the p-
clal order, wns devoted io dilute uider
3 the five-minute rule, I he whole Internal
revenue ntner.dmeiit hin.r open to
amendment
Mr. McMillan ntte.npied to rcarh an
agreement to vote upon hucIi amendment
01 as might be p-ndlng at o'clock this
afternoon, but Mr. Htirtows objected
temporarllv until he could confer with
hiB Colleagues
The first amendment offered was one
by Mr. Tate (Ga.), to Mrlke out sections
29, 30 and 31. relatlrg to the tax on whis-
Ikey, the increase of the bonded period
and manner of collecting the ta.
Mr. Tate explained thut If this amend
ment were adopted the law would remain
as It Is He wos opposed to the
Increase of the tax on vvhlskev. He was
opposed to the pro!son which pos iwned
) the lmposlton of the Increased tax on
whiskey one month, which would give th
big distillers an opportunity to get their
whiskey out of bond at 90 cents a gallon,
while the small distillers, unable to take
S their whiskey out of bond Immediately
would be forced to pav $1 a gallon It
I would drive small dealers out of bul-
' ness.
cb. He also objected to the Increase of
nt the bonded period, which permitted a loss
k' of eleven gallons In forty.
, Mr. Payne (Rep , "tf: Y.), who got the
floor ostensibly to oppose the amend-
ment, took the opportunity to hae read
181 ome resolutions passed by the New York
Congressional delegation to vole against
tha Wilson bill. He did not suppose the
resolution would be heeded nor that the
) election of a Republican In the Four
teenth Congressional election dis
trict In New York jesterday
i would be heeded, but he wanted the
I 1 Democrats to know that the first
ie. I fruit? of the tariff reform ha 1 h"n the
I election of a Republican In the Gibraltar
of Democracy
Mr. Outhwalte offered an amendment
tS. to the amendment to Increase the tax
; on -vhlskey from W cents to :i when in
bond one jear, $1.10 for two ear and
' ".0 for three jears, tne bonded period
1 1 (.eise at the end of that time. II. ha I
. ) Intention, he said, of pressing the
amendment. The provisions of the b.ll
were v, rait?.
In the Intete-t of icf-itni n few dns
ago the bouiiij on s igar In 1 been abol-
lshed, now it wis prr.po-.ed to ghe a
p bounty to the whiskey Itidi.stiy of this
Iit- eountrj'. It was pioposed to increase I
the bondei perlc 1 from three to eight I
in years, at a cost of in cents i gallon
"!' "Do I understand this bill Increases
rg the bonded period to eight jears?" ask"d
"0,. Mr. Dockery.
f? "It does."
171 "Then It should be otel down"
Mr. Outhwalte went on to hotli In
veigh against the proposed extension.
-3 There were, he said, 147,000,000 gallons In
!bond on June 1 last, K.WO.OOu gallons of
which ought to be taken out of bond In
one year, We were now to have an ex
tension of five j ears. He demanded to
know why this extension has been pro
posed and what Influences were behind It.
The Outhtvalto substitute vai lost 4."
. to 57.
Mr. Dlngle's amendment to restote
the provisions cf existing liw with ref
erence to the bonded period (making it
three Instead of eight years) was car-
ried 103 to 80.
TO This leaes the bonlcd perlol an It Is
