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
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

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
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
Most of these countries are not marl
time' nations. Russia, of course, has no
commercial treaty with the United States.
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

eluding mortgagors of real or personal

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

A Tariff Announcement!!
Beginning tomorrow, Monday, at Bloomtngdales, there will
be a gradual reduction in the prices of goods affected by the
new Tariff.
We have held in the Bonded Warehouse thousands of dol
lars' worth of merchandise on which the new Tariff will show
considerable savings. These goods, as well as similar lines in
stock, will be marked to conform with the reductions in the new
It is needlpss to add that we, like many other good mer
chants, have bought heavily of the lines on which the Tariff
has been advanced: but, of course, they were withdrawn from
the Custom House before the new Tariff went into effect. Con
sequently we can and will maintain the old, prices on these ar
ticles until the stock is exhausted.
