Sends Message Asking Advance
ment of Travis-Lee Constitu
tional Amendment.
in.v To>Rrap!i It The Tribal 1
Mbany. April 12. — Fresh evidence of the latent
fpirit of hostility toward Governor Hushes was
furnished in th«» Senate to-night by the recep
tion accorded a message sent by him to the
Legislature urging action on the Travis-Lee
jjjbstitutJona! amendment, designed to furnish
fund? f" r new ways in New York City. In a
tarea^'ic speech^ Senator Raines called atten
tion t<« the fact that this measure had already
progr* ssod well without interference from the

Governor was overstepping the bounds of exec
utive p« «er in pending a special message on this
]?rislati'<n. u-hieh. being a constitutional amend
ment- could not c<">me before him in any form.
The evident desire of those who spoke on the
measure was t<> make it api tear an unwarranted
interference with dm- and orderly consideration
of legislation and a "gallery play." as Senator
JleCaiK-n phrase.) it. Governor Hughes, as a
natter of fact, merely gave his views on the
importance of this measure to New York City,
with this final comment:
The matter is po Important that there is no
Justification in relying on conjecture or in de
pending on forecasts of the settlement of the
existing controversy over the debt limit. This
opportunity at least should not i..- lost and the
people should have the right to give to New
York •jt.\ this measure of freedom to which It
Js justly entitled
pome curiosity had been evident as to the
rature of the Governor's message, hut it was
retired almost with the first words read by
the < ■k. and little attention was paid to the
rest of it save by Senator Raines, who was busy
ascenainine: the exact status of the •constitu
tional amendment.
"I desire to express great satisfaction that the
Governor is considering legislation, especially
le?islati"n relating to the important subject his
nessage covered." said the veteran majority
leader as soon as the message was read. '"Lest
some misunderstanding arise as to the laxity of
the Legislature. I call attention to the fact that
this measure is on the calendar as a sdecial
order fur to-morrow and is on the second read
lug calendar in the Assembly. I suppose this
measure is not designed to influence the judg
ment of any Senator, but to hurry proceedings.
We appreciate the interest of the Governor and
ire glad to know his views. Still, I must say
this legislation has been progressed and is pro
gressing as rapidly as jKissible, and so far as
1 know th«?re is no doubt about its i>assage_by
this Legislature."'
"Far be it from me to accuse the Governor of
any gallery play,** sobbed Senator McCarren's
lachrymose voice, "but I must call attention to
the vanishing powers of the Legislature." Mr.
McCarren -said likewise that he had no "desire
to castigate the Governor," but he felt an
Urgent desire to show that this, a constitutional
amendment, would not come before the Gov
ernor for action, and so the Executive was a
little off his beat. if it were a pending bill,
he said, "this might be a tip that the Governor
■ninild feign it, and that of itself would be an
"There is a gradual attempt, in this as in
many other states, to absorb tile powers and
prerogatives of th~ Legislature by the Execu
tive," said Mr. McCarren. "It would be well for
the Legislature to member that it is a co
ordinate branch of government."
Senator Wagner, who favors the amendment,
Enid that the other Democratic Senators from
Jiauhatuin also favored it. and if the message
■»«.- meant as a earning the Governor must
lave been misled as to the necessity I ■'■■ it.
laniln Xewccmb declared the Governor had
the constitutional right to communicate with
the Legislature, not only on bills but on all
landing legislation.

measure in all quarters of the state." said -Mr.

Burden? on Xeccsxitics Lightened

Debate to Begin Thursday.
[Fron* The Tribune Bu/1-i'x !
Washington, April 12. — Senator Aldrich r»*
ported to the Senate to-day the Finance Com
mittee's substitute for the schedules and frea
list of the Payne tariff bill. Adjournment was
taken until Thursday, when Mr. Aldrich ■will
open the debate on the bill by explaining the
principal changes proposed In the substitute. At
the same time he will present to the Senate a
fully prepared statement showing the esti
mated revenue under the new schedules.
With few exceptions the important provisions
in the Senate substitute have been outlined in
these dispatches for the last ten days. The ex
clusive announcement in The Tribune of April •
that Mr. Aldrich had submitted to President Taft
the tentative draft of the substitute bill, an-3
that it provided for reductions on necessities
and increases on luxuries, is borne out by an'
analysis of the measure reported to-day. Tho
Senate bill meets th* expectations of those who
have been looking for genuine revision. That it
Is an improvement over th«» House bill i? as
serted on all sides, for in the main the rates are
lower, and are so arranged that the burden of
taxation win fall on those who are best able to
bear it
Democratic Baton made their expected pro
test when the bill was reported. It was well
understood that they were merely making cam
paign material, ,:<nd the Senate leaders per
mitted them to talk without Interruption. When
they had finished Senator Aldrich said a few
words in defence of the policy pursued by him
and his Republican associates on the Finance
Committee, and pointed out that if the Demo
cratic programme had been followed many
months would have been wasted. The protest
for the minority was made by Senators Daniel.
Bailey and Culberson. They directed attention
to the brevity ■:' the Meeting of the Finance
Committee this morning:, and said the bill had
not been read and that no consideration had
been given to it. They declared that they want
ed the country* to know the story of the elimina
tion of the minority, and . Mr. Daniel said that
while it might be defended on the ground that
it was a Senate custom, he wished ss observe
that it was a custom more honored in the breach
than in the observance. Mr. Aldrich pointed
out that there would be full opportunity for con
sideration •'( the bill on the fioor and that every
Senator would have an opportunity to express
himself fully on the subj'-ct He said the actioa
of the Republicans was dictated by a desire to
pass a tariff bill at th«« earliest "possible data.
and that the majority party was willing to ac
cept full responsibility.
The maximum and minimum and administra
tive features were not included in the report
made to-day, but will be submitted later. The
committee has not decided on the rates it will
recommend in regard to coal, hides, petroleum,
steel rails and wood pulp ami the articles de
pendent on it. The committee is seeking fur
ther information respecting some of these arti
cles, and in regard to others it is desired that
the wishes of the Senate shall be ascertained be
fore a report is made.
The rates in the Senate bill are lower than
those in the Payne bill, the actual number of
reductions being about three times the number
of increase:?. The great mass of rates are be
low those in the Dins;!- act. Th- provision of
the Payne bill for an Inheritance tax is stricken
out, as the committee, after much study and
many consultations with the officers of th«
Treasury Department, saw its way clear to pro
vide for the raising of adequate revenue with
out the imposition of a* »pa : tax. The ques
tion of revenue has been prominent in every
phase of the making of the new tariff law, and
no feature of the bill has received closer study
from Mr. Aldrich than this. The Rhode Island
Senator will be prepared on Thursday to giva
the Senate accurate information as to the
amount that will be realized in customs receipts
under the new duties. It" he can demonstrate,
as he thinks he can. that the customs receipts
under his proposed tariff revision measure will
meet all ordinary governmental expenditures, It
is believed that little time will be devoted to
amendments offered on the floor for an income
tax, an inheritance tax, a tax on dividends and
similar propositions.
The most disappointed men in Washington
are thorn who have been here for many we«?ka
in the interest of a high tariff on lumber. Many
Democratic Senators had assured them that
they would stand firm for the retention of ths
$"J rate on lumber. The lumbermen believed
that the Finance Committee would recommend
this rate, that it would be approved by the Sea
ate and that the conference committee -voulel
not make .i reduction below $130. The, Senate
bill provides for the same rate on lumber a*
that carried in the House bill, namely $1 a thou
sand feet. There will be a determined tight on
Hie floor to raise this to $'J. with the Southern
and Pacific Coast Senators lighting shoulder to
The action of the Finance Committee in strik
ing out the increases on hosiery and worm-n's
gloves carried in the Payne bill and restoring
the Dingiey rates meets general commendation.
Much of the popular opposition to the Payne
bill arose from the fact that It provided for
marked increases of duties on these feminine
In the House the advocates of "the free,
breakfast table" won a signal victory when they
forced a reluctant Ways and Means Committee
to restore coffee and tea to the free list. Under .
the leadership of the New York delegation a
concession of a cent a pound on cacasi was "
forced from th" committee. The original Payne
bill taxed cocoa at 4 cents a pound, the rate be
ins reduced to .'» cents Just before the bill
passed. The Senate committee has restored
cocoa to the free list, believing that an article
of such general consumption should no more be
made dutiable than tea or coffee. In comment
ing on this action Mr. Aldrich said: "The com
mittee felt that if it was necessary to increase
revenue it could be done better on luxuries
than on the everyday necessities of life, and
have pursued this policy in the construction of
this bill."
From one source alone— increased tax on a
luxury— it is estimated there til be an addl*
