Congress Authorizes Committees to
Sit in Recess.
■vVashinpton. May 16.— Both houses of Con
fress to-day took action looking toward revision
of ihe tariff at th* next session. The Senate
adopted a resolution reported by Mr. Aldrlch
Irom the Committee on Finance Riving; that com
mittee authority t<» employ expert assistants
necessary to provide for hi intellißent levision
of the tariff and to report what further l-'gis
lation is needed to obtain equitable treatment for
c- )itur«l and other products of the United
States. The committee is also instructed to
collect proof of tho relative cost . if production
in the United Siatcp and the principal competing
The House adopted a resolution authorizing
the Committee on Ways and Means to sit in the
coming recess of Congress. Mr. Payne, who of
•ami th«» resolution, said that in order not to
disquiet the country before flection the com
mittee would make no faaMal inquiry involving
the question of rates in the schedule. After the
election, he said, the subject would be gone into.
The resolution was described by Mr. Williams,
the minority leader, as one that could be under
stood by a child fourteen years of age. It was
not, he said, (he Rear that business interests
would be disquieted, but that things would b»
disquieted In a. political sense. He asserted that
the Republican majority dare not l.ring up be
fore election a. proposition for tariff revision.
Inasmuch as the resolution discharged the
Committee on Rules from Its consideration, Mr.
Williams seized on that fact to interpret it as
an exposition of lack of confidence. The Com
mittee on Rules, he said, had been discredited
and the innuendo spread abroad that the com
mittee had not done its duty.
Mr. Payne closed the debate by stating the
Republican programme for tariff revision. "It
will be a protective tariff." he said. "It will be
a maximum and minimum tariff, putting us on
an equality with France. Germany and Russia
In that respect, and we will go out -with that
tariff as we did with the Dlngley tariff, in the
flrm belief that we will bring: renewed prosperity
to the people of the United State?; we will
broaden our markets "with the nations of the
earth, and by that we will bring blessings to all
the people."

Man?/ Important Bills Already
Passed, and Others in Conference.
[From Th« Tribune Bureau.'
Washington. May 16. — "With flnaJ adjournment
stlU a -week away, the first session of the 60th
Congress has its task almost completed, and
rarely liae the work been so xvell in hand at this
stape of a lons session. Of the fourteen big;
•rpply bills, four have become laws, all but one
havo been passed by the House, and that is now
under consideration, and only two remain to
paps the Senate, neither of which Is likely tn
cause extended debate. The total appropriations
contained in the bills passed and pending
amount approximately to 51,028,000,000. These
figures include the "continuing appropriations"
for the payment of interest on the public debt
and other purposes.
Although the session promises to be a little
over five weeks shorter than the first session of
the last Congress, a surprising amount of work
has been accomplished, especially in the Senate,
where, in addition to legislative enactments.
thirty-one treaties have been ratified, besides
fix or seven which have been considered but
not approved. The total number of bills Intro
duced already exceeds the number presented at
the long- session of the last .Congress by close
to two thousand, and Congress has passed sev
enteen omnibus pension bills, providing for ap
proximately two thousand pensioners, and one
omnibus bill Is still pending.
Among the important bills which have already
been approved by the President or have passed
both houses are the widows' pension art, rais-
Ins widows" pensions from ?S to SJ- a month
and facilitating obtaining them: tin consular
reorganization r»iH. the measure reorganizing
the medical department of the army, the em

session are still in conference, or have passed
only one house, as, for instance, the financial
hill, the Overman bill regulating injunctions,
;ii<- campaign publicity bill, the Shanghai code
bill, the White Mountain and Appalachian for
est reserve bill, the measure giving legai exist
ence to the Inland Waterways Commission, the
postal subvention bill. etc.
of the appropriation bills six are still in con
ference, but on most of them considerable work
has been done and an agreement is regarded as
not far off. The Senate still has two bills to
pass, the general deficiency and the military
academy, both of which could be disposed of in
a day were it necessary. The House has only
the general deficiency bill to pass. In fact,
were it not that the leaders intend to providu
ample time for extended conferences, and if
possible an agreement on the financial bill, the
work of the session could easily be completed
by next Wednesday, but the leaders now ex

David S. Cowles, the paper manufacturer, re
sumed the stand to-day. Ho gave additional figures
as to the cost of production of paper and the selling
price at the mills In reply to a series of questions
by Chairman Mann, Mr. Cowles said he had no
knowledge of any combination, agreement or un
derstanding among paper manufacturers to fix a
price for paper, nor did he know of any understand
ing or agreement among managers or sales agents

a paper which had a contract with some other
Mr. Cowles alleged that there was a concerted
effort to break the paper market. lie denied that
his mills had shut down In order to restrict the
output. In reply to a question by Mr. Sims, the
witness paid eventually he would go out of the paper
business unless the price of paper went up.
G. H. P. Gould, of the Gould Paper Company,
Lyons Kails, N. V.. testified that the cost of the
paper f. 0. r>. at their mill was $29 57 per ton. In
1960, he said, it cost about $25. Mr. Gould said
he knew of no agreement or understanding among
the paper manufacturers. He said that if the duty

Chester W. Lyman, of New York, assistant to
the president of the International Paper Company,
read ;i statement declaring that a careful ex
amination of all Hie evidence submitted on be
half of the publishers would fall to show any
proof of any unlawful or improper act upon the
part of the international Paper Company.
The statement says' it is not disputed that the
price of paper has risen in the last year, "but."
it continues "there has been an utter failure to
prove, or to present to the committee any real
evidence to sustain any of th" main charges made
1 by the publishers."
The charges and the alleged testimony In sup
1 port of thorn, it Fays, are nothing but a reitera
tion of substantially the same assertions made
by Mr Norris on several previous occasions, and
which, it Bays, have been refuted Continuing, the
statement says:
The International Paper Company has not now
and has not had any agreement or understanding
tor fixing or maintaining prices or curtailing out
put of" any kind or description with any other
paver manufacturer or sales agency whatever Ii
is not a party to any combination. It, is not a
party to any "gentlemen's agreement' 1 or any
other agreement affecting prices or output It has
stood and proposes to continue to stand absolutely
alone in the sale of paper and in the conduct of
its business in every respect.
The only suggestion to the contrary in the .state
ments submitted, and it has been only the merest
suggestion, consists of hearsay statements from i a
few publishers. These statements are denied.; No
authorized representative ever made any such state
ments, nor did any such agreement ever exist, nor
does such exist to-day.
In the early summer of 1907 the executive com
mittee of the company decided deliberately and
after careful consideration upon a definite change
Of policy in respect to th« sale of Its product and
its contracts with the publishers, and in pursuance
of that policy and in consequence of then existing
conditions. th« price of paper was raised by the
company without the slightest reference to what
other manufacturers might or might not do.
According to the statement a floating debt of
$4,000,000 which had been created was liquidated
in l? 06 from the net proceeds of the sale of $5,000,000
6 per cent bonds, but by the summer of 1907 a new
floating debt of about $4,000,000 had again been
created. No dividends were bing paid upon the
common stock, "although the actual value of the
plant and property of the company exceeded the
value of its total capitalization and bonded in
debted ness." The statement continues:
\b all the factors m the cost of manufacture and
distribution within the control of the management
were as low as possible consistent with the t;i;i'
of paper produced, the reason for diminishing earn-
Ings clearly was that the paper was being sold at
too low a* price and upon conditions which were
crossly unfair to the company. The executive com
mittee and the officers determined upon a complete
chance of policy. They decided to make no more
contracts for more than one year which bound th
seller but did not bind the purchaser. They also de
cided to fix a fair price for paper with reference to
the. cos! of manufacture and to Insist upon receiv-
Ing that price without any reduction or the allow
ance of any rebate whatsoever unless Justified. They
decided to mak» a uniform contract and adhere r?>
it and to treat all purchasers similarly situate
and fti other respects equally desirable absolutely
The increase in the price of paper is justified in
the statement by the assertion that the previous
price had been too low. and by the alleged Increase
in the cost of manufacture, and th« allegation is
made that under present conditions the price at
paper now yields only a fair return upon the capi

manufacturers have been bitterly opposed.
