I'resldeni Wilson lerelved storm of tclrRrnms from all parts of the country to-day congratulating lilm on the personal victory which concluded In his sIkiiImk of tin- liiirratlr tariff icvlelon law last night, .Many of time gave. i'iithusltlc In doiMeinent also to hi duinand that cur icncy leslslntlon .should be pushed to ennctinunt before the adjournment of this session. The tlrst step toward the actual ad ministration of the Underwood-Simmon tariff law was taken by Asslstunt Secro tary of the Treasuiy Hamlin when be forward.'.! to the fort -two Collectors of "'ustonis certltled coplci of the new mea sure. The law has not t been tnde&rd, so It will not be practicable fjr all of the lliw rate to be put Into effect on Monday, by which time It Is expected that these ' copies will lie In the hands of the col lectors. The Index Is In course of prep aration ami will be forwarded to th custom otttclal.1 some time next week. Tending thu receipt of the Indexes the Treasury Depaitment has Issued orders that the intes of the f'uyne-Aldrlch law Mhall be levied. This of riiurae doc not mean that these rate will be collected finally, but merely assessed on goods offered for entry Into the fulled States, These assessment will stand n'.uly for amendment before liquidation. After the Indexed copies of the new law are ie reived "by the colletcor next week these will be changed to correspond to the new lutes and actual liquidations will be made on this basis.

The promulgation of thene regulations will occupy the attention of Assistant Sec retary Hamlin and his subordinates for several weeks. So It is that all the pro visions of the new law will not become ef fective for more than a month in all probability. Secretary Hamlin received a number of telegraphic inquiries from officials at the jiort of New York and other customs ports throughout the United States as to specific rates which they were called upon to levy. These weie nnsweied as quickly as possi ble. It was said, however, that none of them Involved lniortaiit Interpretations of the new law. The Commissioner of Internal Keeuue put In the day studying the Income tax piovisions. He ha decided that there Is no need for haste by him In promulgating the new regulations for the collectors of Internal levenue, as the law does not re quite the withholding of incomes at their tource to begin until November 1. It Is expected that the work of rolled lug the Income tax will be .supervised by L. I'', tipear. who orKanlted and now has charge of the- corporation tax division of the bureau of Internal revenue. The organization of the Income tax di vision will begin next week. About forty additional employee will be required for the clerical work at the Treasuiy Depart ment and about 200 or more Held agents most he appointed. The Held agent are to be appointed with the approval of the Secretary of the Treasuiy without regard to the civil ser vice rules. The rlerks at the Department ar to be of the classified service, how- T. eerrtary Hr,n' Statement. Recietaiy Hryau gave out this state-1 ment lelatlve to tbe taiirr law: "The tariff law that went Into force last night Is the best tariff measure since the war. and all who have taken part In pre paring and passing It are entitled to great ci edit. It Is a better bill than we were slile to pass twenty years ago, and I re joice that political condition arr surh as to make the present law possible. "The Wilson hill was compelled to carry a but den that will not fall upon the pres ent law and ousbt not to have fallfn mi that law. The Wilson law provided for nn I Income tax which was held uncoustltii tional by a divided ote, the one majority Having dccii secureu oy a cnauge in opinion on the part of one Judge between the two hesrtngs of the rate. "The nullification of the Income tax portion of the Wilson law reduced the Government's Income until It would not UMl 'h expenses of the Government, and this compelled an Increase of In debtedness that threw upon the bill tin ussteserved odium which, together with the fart that the .Senate deprived the bill of some of its best feature, robbed tho party or the benefit which would ordinarily have icnie to It fiom a reduction In Import du tie. "Then, too, the bill won Into 0ieiatlon Mrllaln and Merman)' May Iteqaest .Me it Treaties. Wasiiinuton, Oct. 4. A situation which may have most far reaching conse quences In regard to the new tariff has been disclosed by a letter of Hollcltor Kolk of the State. Department to Sena tor Simmons, chairman of the Senate l-'lnance Committee. It Is likely that the immediate effect will be to bring a request from the Gov ernments of Great Hrltaln and of Ger many for the negotiation of new com-, merclal treaties with tltc United States. Tho new tariff law provides that goods Imported Into the United States In Ameri can vessels shall pay 5 per rent, less than the tariff schedules call for; It Is further provided, however, that the vessels of any nation' having by treaty a guarantee of equal treatment with vessels of the United States with regard to Import duties shall jnjoy the same reduction of 5 per cenfr Beven teen foreign Governments have such trea ties with the United States. In an examination of the treaties of tlreat Hrltaln and Germany a peculiar situation was discovered at the State Department. It was found that the re ciprocal treatment In the case of th" Hritlsh treaty applies only to vessels bringing In goods which are the "growth, product or manufacture of his Hrltanmc Majesty's territories In Uurope." This provision, of course, does not ex tend, therefore, to Hritlsh oversea do minions, such ns Canada, Australia, New Zealand. Jamaica, South Africa, India anil other Kngllsh pose"lons. Conse quently Imports from those outlying pos session .will have to pay tile full rate of the new tariff schedules and In effect will he taxed an additional 5 per cent, over similar goods coming from other countries. Germany's Case Identical. Almost an Identical situation prevails witli respect to the German Umpire. The treaty now In force was mail with only the Government of Prussia, nod It Is specifically stated that only goods of growth, product or manufacture In Prus sia shall enjoy the same rates when brought In by Prussian vessels as when by American vessels. The German Government on many oc casions has Indicated that It regards this old treaty In force for the whole em pire, hut In this rase Its application can not be extended, as the territory of 1'iussla Is exprely mentioned In the agreement. Consequently goods from other parts of the empire outside of States will suffer the additional .'. per Prussia and rertaln other very small cent, tax at Amtrlcnn custom houses. It Is not expected that either the Hritlsh of the German governments will tolerate this state of affairs a moment longer than necessary after they discover the coi strurtlon which the Slate I'epartment puts upon their treaties in application to the tariff law, Germany has already Intimated that she would like to negotiate new agreement of commercial reflproclty with the United Slate, and It Is expected that wlmi the Herlln i !o eminent learn of th latest development nn attempt will be made to expedite tho working ut of n remedy. It Is also expected that the Hritlsh will be equally quick to enter complaint and seek to have good from their outlying p.ieslon admitted to the United States on equal terms with good from other countries brought In by ships. Itegard fnr Canadian Interests, which will probably he most affected, I counted upon to make Gnat Hrltaln piompt to ek the negotiation of a new commercial agreement which shall not have the nar row provision of tho existing treaty Accoullng to Solicitor Kolk, the follow ing countries are adequately protected and will enjoy the 8 per cent, reduction to be given on goods on American vessels i Austria-Hungary. Argentine Hepubllc, Belgium, Bolivia, Colombia. Denmark, Greece, Hnnseatlc republics, Italy, Japan, Liberia, Mecklenburg-Hchwerln, Nether lands, Paraguay, Prussia, Spain anil Sweden and Norway. The following countries have no treaty provisions which would permit goods brought Into the United State In their vessels to enjoy the 5 per cent, preferen tial : Brasll, Chile, China, Dominican Hepubllc. Ecuador, France, German Empire, Guatemala, llaytl, Mexico, Nicaragua. Panama, Peru, Portugal, Ilussia, Salvador, Slain, Switzerland, Turkey, Uruguay and Venexuela. Most of these countries are not marl time' nations. Russia, of course, has no commercial treaty with the United States. States. CITY BONDS SENT UPWARD. Rise Based on Relief Thai Tag l.arr Kaempts Them. The Income tag law- had practically In atantaneous effect esterday. New York city bonds advanced sharply, based, In the opinion of bond dealers, on the. ex emption provision of the law. The promi nent Issues of city bonds shot upward more than a point. This was the more remarkable for the reason that city bonds at this time are due for a moderate slump. They arc sold after October I, the day of the city's personal property tax levy. A gain of a point In a day In city bonds has not been seen In the last year and Is not frequent. Most prominent In the trading yester dsy were the temporary receipts for the newest Issue of bonds, those of 19H3, The net advance for the day was ' of a point. The advance from the low of the day before was I U points. Ninety-two bonds were traded on the Stock Kxchange, the final price being 1033,. The 4 '4 of 1X7 were sold at 1034, n gain of IU. The bid price for the 41s of 1962 wa 7H, an advance of . and the 3'i of 1054, at S3 '4, showed a gatn of 1 point. The Kseaiptton Overlooked. Ilond dealers held that the exemption feature of the tax law hail been over looked generally In Its effect on city bonds. With the floating supply re duced thorugh the purchases for the Oc tober 1 city tax day, moderate buying of the bonds yesterday was sufficient to send the price up. Passage of the Income tax bill was as sertlng a much more extensive, though less evident, effect in the Important prep arations of corporations, firms and busi ness generally to devise methods for the deduction of Income at the source pro vided In the law. Attention In the finan cial district among the big corporations, with the managers of business housei and among the partners and managers of banking firms, trust companies and other finasclal Institutions handling cor poratlon Interest and dividend payments was centred on the provision of the law as fallows: "All persons, firms, copartnership", companies, corporations. Joint stock com panies or associations and Insurance com panies, in wliatever rapacity acting. In eluding mortgagors of real or personal property, trustees acting in any trust ca parity, executor, administrator, agents. receivers, conservators, emp!ors and all officers and employee of the United States having the control, receipt, cus tody, disposal or payment of Interest, rent salaries, wages, premiums, annuities, com pensations remunerations, emolument or other fixed or determinable annual gains, profits and Income of another person ex ceeding $3,000 for any taxable )ear other than dividends on the capital stock or from the net earnings of corporations and Joint stock companies or associations sub- I ject to like tax, who are required to make and render a return in pohatr or another, as provided herein, to the collector of his. her or Its district are hereby authorised and required to deduct and withhold from surh annual gains, profit and Income such sum a will bo sufficient to pay the normal tax Imposed thereon by this sec tion and shall pay to the offlrer of the United States' Government anthorlfsfl te receive the same, and they are each here by made personally llablo for such tax." More Clerks .Needed. All the big corporations have their ac counting department busy getting the machinery under way for the collection of this Income tax at the source. Ah the law provides, however, that deduction of this "normal tax" nt the source shall not begin until November 1 corporation and others named as illsbursers of pajmeuts have a month In which to perfect their accounting systems. Officers of tho United States Steel Corpor ation expect that a good sized addition to Its clerical force will ho necessary to handle the new accounting oqulrcd. Plan for carrying out the law are under discus slon and partly completed. "The new law Impoacs upon corpora tions and others an Immense amount of work and a heavy expense that 1 not a function of the corporation, but of the Government," said an officer of the Steel Corporation yesterday.
