New Problem Comes Up.
TUCSON, Ariz., May 8. The insur
gent Mexican state of Sonora, as an in

ings to obtain the extradition of Vin
eeuti Moralos, charged with tho murder
in 1911 of Fortunato Mazon, son of. a
wealthy merchant t of Canuuca. The
father of Morales, in a counter action,
holds that as Soiiora has not been rec
ognized aa a bolligeront or as an inde
pendent nation by tho United States,
fiis son cannot be extradited. Tho caso
therefore involves a problem for the
American stato 'department.
Moralos was arrested horo after two

ed; Big Fight Ahead. LI
By International News Service. r
WASHINGTON, May 8. Driven by II
tho unrelenting lash of the presidential j H
whip, the houso of representatives, by l
a vote of 281 to 13S passed tho "Wil- S
son-TJndcrwood free trade tariff bill at i H
6:15 this evening. The votes against jJH
the bill of nine Democrats who braved l
displeasure of the executive rather. ;:H
than ignore what they deemed their l
duty to thoac who elected them, were H
nearly offset by the votes of sis "Repub- IH
licans for the bill. jfl
Floods of protests from nianufac- H
turer, merchant, producer and foreign. :H
nations await the bill when it makes
its appearance before the senate to- jJH
morrow. The bill will be started upon KH
its stormy "way at once. Republican
senators will open the fight by demand- j H
ing public hearings. iThis will be dc- i H
featod, but it is the purpose of the j H
Democrats to give full hearings in com- v H
mittee to all classes of objectors. I H
There is little likelihood 'that the bill H
will reach the president again before f H
September .1 and it is probable that it
will have been amended materially be-
fore then. (j
Made Record Time. HI
The tariff bill made record time
through the house, but little more than ?H
two weeks having passed since it came f'i
from the ways and means committee. jf
All amendments except those proposed j
by the committoc were defeated. With f
the exception of Broussard of Louis- gH
iana no Democratic member of the H
houso proposed changes m the bill. Nl
Republican leaders sought to make ?lH
political capital for their party just H
boforc the final passage of the bill !H
through the house in an effort to bring JH
the Democrats to a record vote on the H
creation of a tariff commission. 'H
An amendment providing for such a jH
commisisou was ruled out of order by -
Speaker Clark. Mann appealed from H
the ruling and the speaker was sus- JH
tained, 274 to 143. Payno's motion to H
substitute for the wool and cotton
schedules of tho bill was defeated, 296 H
(0 12:i. With Victor Murdock leading, H
nineteen Progressives voted against the
Payuo substitutes. - 11
Murdock's Motion Defeated.
Murdock got seventeen votes on his j;
motion to recommit the bill with in- s
structions lo increase tho income tax
on all incomes over $100,000 and lim- j H
iting the appropriation of the proposed
tariff duties until such time as a non-
partisan tariff board could report on
tho differoucc in the costs of produc-
tion at homo and abroad. His effort f
to get a roll call for a record vote was
defeated, tho opposition numbering 257
votes, about one-half of which came
from tho Republicans. f
On final passage the Democrats vot
ing against wero Estoppinal, Dulbre,
Broussard, Watkins, Elder, Morgan, VM
Lazare aud Aswoll of Louisiana and

Mann's Closing Fight. jH
Maun started out his closing fight S
with tho announcement that he would
not require another reading of the bill.
He then asked to seimrato Payne 's mo- HH
tion to recommit the Underwood bill fflH
for changes so as to get separate votes Sl

"We don't ask or suggest that tariff r
revision be held up until a tariff com-
mission Can investigate and roport,'1 Bl
he said. "W'c want it for future use Sl
in revising the tariff. Do you Demo- u
1 crats thin K that this law, like tho law H
of tho Medes and tho Persians, is to
remain unchanged and that this is tho
end of tariff legislation? Men of
sense know Micro will be other nH
changes in the tariff. You authorize f
the treasury department to make tho
investigations necessary under this
