from the bathroom of her apartments on the
sixth floor of the St. I'rban apartment house
at No. 255 Central Park "West, last night, and
was killed instantly. Her skull was fractured
and her body badly bruised and torn. The body
was found by her older son, Charles, after a
search of an hour and a half.
Xeither the family nor any one about the
apartment house would divulge any particulars
of the case, and it was stoutly denied that Mrs.
Friedman had deliberately thrown herself from
the window. Her body was found about 8:30
o"clock. and had lain in the rear areaway from
a few minutes after 7 o'clock. The police knew
nothing of the affair until 10 o'clock, and when
detective sergeants from the 100lh-Bt station
went to the Friedman apartments admittance
was denied them and details of the case were
refused. The older son of the dead woman said
the details would be given only to the coroner.

MAXIMUM TARIf F BILL.
LIKELY TO PASS HOUSE,
Opposition in Senate, Which Fears
Efects of Act at Present.
(From The Tribune B"r»*'.i i
Washington, Jan. 20.— The Speaker and. the
leaders of the House have determined to pr^es
for passage the McCieary Maximum Tariff bill,
which provides for the assessment of 2T> ocr
cent in addition to the rates Imposed by tha
Dingley act on imports from all countries which
do not accord to imports from the United Stats«
as low rates as are Imposed on imports from any
other country, and which further provides for a
2."> per cent tariff on all goods now on the fre»
list when coming from such countries. With the
Speaker, the House leaders and Representative
McCleaxy. who Is a member of the Ways and
Means Committee, committed to this policy, th»
success of the measure in the House probably Is
In the Senate, however, there has recently de
veloped some opposition to such legislation. It
is learned from an authoritative sesree that the
likelihood of coercing Germany, at which
legislation wooild be chiefly directed, into accord
ing to the United States Its conventional, or
minimum tariff rates, by such a course is re
Members of the Senate who have been study
ing the subject maintain tha.t this Is the \iew
held by the Secretary of State, as well a* >»r
others who are in a position ii.telHsrently to
judge of the probable effect of the proposed leg
Accepting this view of th* situation, certain;
influential member? of the Senate point to the
fact that the effect of th.-» McCieary bill I
be simply to increase the tariff in certain In
stances on commodities on which, in the opin
ion of a large number of loyal Republicans, the
Dlngley schedules should be lowered. This
would apply to th« iron and gt el schedules, for
instance, although it is wideiy admitted tha'
the tariff rates on these products should b»
lowered and only the detrimental effect on z*n
eral business which would inevitably result from
opening up the tariff question warrants tho
continuance of the present rates.
It has been pointed out that the McCieary law
would enable, this country to strike back at
Brazil, which country has Increased the tariff
on American flour by imposing a duty of '23
per cent on Brazilian coffee; but it is nor.- be
lieved that while, if the effect of such imposi
tion were to be an immediate repeal of the in
creased duty on flour, all would be well, if
Brazil were to persist in her present policy tho
Democrats would take advantage of the fact
to urge upon the farmers of the country that
they were being taxed on their coffee without
any corresponding benefit. And so, in the ca?e
of Germany, if that country did not imme
diately yield to the pressure of the United
States, the farmer would find the market for his
livestock and farm products seriousiy curtailed,
while the manufactures of steel and other com
modities which the farmer cannot produce, ar.d
is compelled to buy, would he increased with,
perhaps, a corresponding increase in cost.
It !« urged that there la an election coming"
on next fall and. that wer« the maximum and,
minimum tariff law to fall of the immediate
accomplishment of Its real purpose it could be
used with damaging effect In every CongTeas
district in which the tariff revision germ has ob
tained a foothold, and for that reason some of
the most influential Senators are disposed to
regard the enactment of the measure at this
time as inadvisable.
Those who take this view hay*» adopted as
their motto "make haste slowly." The;.
that while the State Departmer,- exerts tts
endeavor to accomplish n satisfactory conclu
sion of the present difficult'?? by diplomatic
methods. Congress should keep its hands off. at
least for this session. They say thar a fe^r
months after the new German tariff law. which,
goes into effect on March 1. has been in opera
tion, its effect can be Judged far better than
now. If, as is predicted in some quarters, it
results In grave hardship to the German con
sumer he can be relied upon to obtain the
proper remedy. If, on the other hand, the effect
is seriously prejudicial to American interests, m
remedy can then be more Intelligently devised
and can be put in operation after the fat! elec
tion, when the public mind is at rest politically,
and when the new law can remain in force kmc
enough before another election to afford tho
voters an opportunity to judge accurately of
