Kr, Taft Will Decline to Approve

December, After Beport toy TatM
Board, Executive Will Have Onrn
Revision Flan Ready.
It has been made clear to the Senate
leaders that President Taft Is opposed
to any tariff revision at this time. The
President objects not only to any amend
ment to the Canadian .reciprocity bill low
ering tariff rates, but believes that the
programme for passing an independent
bill relslng schedules Is Ill-advised. His
attitude, which has become known since
his return Saturday night, will have a
still further depressing influence on the
efforts of Senator Wesley Jones and oth
ers looking for a plan of tariff revision
in winch Republican regulars and Insur
gents were to unite and relieve the con
sumer ana confuse the Democrats. The
plan has already met the disapproval of
some republican leaders, who point out
that rothlng could ccme of such a Re-
. publican- legislative programme while the
Democrats control the House.
President Taft believes that tariff re
vision should wait upon the reports of
the tariff board. The President, it is be
lieved sow, will outline ai)lan of tariff
revision, based on the board's report,
when Congress meets In regular session
in December. In' the next Important
speech he is to deliver, at Indianapolis,
en July 4, the President will deal with
' the general subject of tariff revision. It
Is regarded as certain that he would
.veto the Canadian reciprocity bill if it
came to him loaded down with amend"
nients dealing with tariff revision, and
there is little doubt that he will decline
to approve the farmers' free list bill and
other tariff measures of Democratic ori
gin if these pass the Senate. President
Taff s friends believe that he will be the
gainer politically by turning his back
on tariff reislon plans and withholding
his support until he has a report written
from a board of experts.
Week of Reciprocity.
The Canadian reciprocity bill will prob
ably be debated with some earnestness
in the present week. Senator La. Fol
lette's amendments carrying general re
vision will probably be unfolded before
the Senate's gaze within a few days. The
Democratic Senate conference is likely
to shed some light on the situation.
While matters are still rather cbaotlo
the President has been advised by Sen
ate leaders that a vote on the Canadian
bill win be reached earlier than had been
expected. As to how long the tariff bills
may be before the Senate there is still
nothing definite. The Root amendment
will be voted on to-day and will undoubt
edly be rejected. The President has been
eo advised by his party friends in the
The possibility of a coalition between
Democrats and Insurgent Republicans In
the Senate on a tariff revision programme
is more remote than ever. The insur
gents are beginning to turn against their
allies, the Democrats. They are. charg
- ing that the Democratic leaders in the
Senate are working in harmony with the
regular Republicans to pass Canadian
reciprocity without amendment and then
get away after a show of considering the
other tariff bills. The Insurgents say the
Democrats do not want to see legislation
enacted reis!ng tariff schedules down
ward at this time.
"They are plajlng politics with the
question to keep It alive for their next
campaign," said an Insurgent Senator
The insurgents say the tariff amend
ments will hae to be fully debated be
fore there Is any agreement fixing a day
for a iote on Canadian reciprocity.
"It 'Rill be six weeks at least before
there is an agreement to vote on the
Canadian reciprocity bill," said one of
the leading insurgent Senators last night-
The situation is now reversed in the
Senate Some time ago the Democratic
Senators were declaring that the Insur
gents would be mode to fish or cut bait
on the Question of relieving the consumer
from the Iniquities of the Payne-Aldrlch
tariff law The Democrats declared that
they would put up to the Insurgent
brethren the House tariff bills and com
pel them to vote for or against them.
Now the Insurgents are coming forward
with a tariff revision programme, and
aggressively declare that the Democrats
are seeking to e ade the issue. There is
every indication that a bitter struggle is
just ahead in the Senate between insur
gents and Democrats, in which each side
will try to fix upon the ctaer the re
sponsibility for delaying or defeating
genera! tariff revision.

HEAR FUNK TO-DAY
IS 10RIMER PROBE
ITirst Definite Testimony Ex
pected From Chicagoan.
Clarence S. Funk, general manager ot
the International Harvester Company,
will take tire witness stand to-day before
the Senate committee which is investi
gating the charges of corruption in
the election of Senator "William Dorhner.
Mr. Funk's testimony will ba the first
direct evidence obtained by the commit
tee as to the alleged request for a con
"tributlon of $10,000 from the harvester
company, which Mr. Funk charges was
made by Edward Hues, of the Edward
HInes Dumber Company.
The testimony taken by the committee
last week was preliminary and collateral
to the main line ot the investigation.
"With Mr. Funk's testimony to-day, how
ever, the committee will begin to unfold
the main story of the allegations ot
bribery and corruption in the election of
Mr. Funk will be followed by Edward
Hlnes. who Is charged with having re
quested the $10,000 contribution from Mr.
Funk. Edward Tilden, president of the
National Packing Company, who, Mr.
Funk says, was mentioned by Mr. Hlnes
as the receiver of the alleged $109,000
corruption, fund, will also be heard this
week. When these three witnesses have
been heard the main story of the inquiry
will be revealed to the members of the
committee, and subsequent witnesses will
be called to further amplify and cor
roborate Funk's story. It Is probable
also that Gov. Dencen, of Illinois, and
several other less important witnesses
will testify this week.

SOME OF LUXURY
FOR MRS. JENKINS
Expensive Menage Maintain
ed in jtfew York City.
New York. June 25-A glimpse Into the
home of Mrs. Helen Bwelle Jenkins re
veals that this remarkable young woman
has suffered no ill turn of fortune since
her $300,000 worth ot Jewels were stolen
in 1908. Here is one of the most, expen
sively furnished apartments in the city.
Certainly It will be difficult to find one
furnished with such a lavish hand. A
low estimate on the value of the furni
ture, paintings, and bric-a-brac, accord
ing to a close friend, Is close to JT0,000.
Two of the great rooms that overlook
Broadway are filled with rarely carved
chairs and tables, some so perfectly
wrought as to appear to be almost price
less, It Is said. On the walls are hung
gorgeous tapestries and a profusion ot
pictures, many by masters and all show
ing unusual taste.
Everywhere, too, Is a wealth of the
vases, some of gold, others of dellcete
cut glass: ot swinging lamps, beautifully
carved and shaded to shed only a glow
ot the softest tints. Her cut glass col
lection is reputed to be the most mag
nificent In America and was gathered
at great cost from the famous glass man
ufacturers in Bohemia.
The household is run by a retinue of
servants as silent and secretive as the
woman herself. It Is presided OTer by
a negro butler in braid and buttons. To
look after the details are three maids,
each dressed In black and white. In ad
dition to these, a 'young woman Is em
ployed as a personal representative and
Among the employes of he apartment
house Mrs. Jenkins Is known as the "!5
"She never drops us less than a 5
note at a time," said one, a wide grin
Illumining his feattres.
Besides this expensive menage, Mrs.
Jenkins has a "motor" force, composed
of two chauffeurs and a footman. Her
limousine Is one of tho handsomest that
travels Broadway, and, It Is said, cost
$8,000. And never does she allow herself
to ride a foot unless there are fresh
roses in the silver vase resting under
the narrow French cheval glass Inside
the car. ...-
The footman has orders that the flow
ers always must be three In number
three, It Is said, being Mrs. Jenkins
figure of fate. Nor are they ever al
lowed to lose their freshness. No matter
whether she goes out once a day or
twenty times, new roses are purchased
by the footman and placed In the silver
vase every time she steps Into the auto
mobile. TJB10N CT.ATlffrKQ- MONEY.

Mrs. J. W. Jenkins" and their Southern
Occupy Rooms la Hotel.
"Mr. and Mrs Jenkins" occupied rooms
621-3 at the Breslin for a few days and
then departed for Chicago, where Mrs.
Jenkins occupied a mansion In Sheridan
read, the cost of which Is not known. It
Is known, however, that the millionaire
spent $24,000 on Interior decorations alone.
It Is stated by the government officers
that the Southern companion of the cou
ple seemed actually deformed when he
entered the Breslin office, so stuffed were
his pockets with the Jewels the "Wext
ernrr had purchased In Europe, alike for
his woman companion and his wife's
children. The gems were turned over
to their owners at the hotel
Soon after "Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins"
reached the Breslin they were visited by
four or five customs Inspectors who had
handled their baggage, and each ot them
was given $100 by "Jenkins."
The New Tork millionaire banker and
broker Involved is alleged to have care
fully Instructed his friend, the Western
er, while In London, in the fine art of
smuggling at this port. Collector Loeb
had then been. In office only about three
months. News hod reached American
tourists In Europe that the new collec
tor had adopted a very rigid system of
inspection, and that it Would be danger
ous for anybody to be caught smuggling
Dealt Heavily la Stocks.
For several years the Westerner had
dealt heavily in stocks through the New
York bankers brokerage house. This had
brought them into close contact. Tho
banker was accompanied to Europe by his
wife, and on the Continent they traveled
with "Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins."
"Don't permit yourself to be fright
ened about the customs authorities," the
New York man Is said to have admon
ished the Western millionaire In the
Savoy Hotel In London "Leave It to me,
and ril see that you get all of your Eu
ropean purchases by the Inspectors."
When the "Jenkins" party stepped from
the Lusltania they were met by a con
fidential representative of the banker.
This representative Is said to have hailed
"Jenkins" familiarly, with the laconic
"Come right along. I heard from the
other Bide by cable."
A humorous touch Is given to this part
of the story by the statement that Col
lector Loeb was at the pier at the time,
having gone there to ouserve the system
of Inspection then In force.
After members of the Western million
aire's family had started the vigorous
campaign to break oft the relations be
tween him and "Mrs. Jenkins," It was
again the New York banker's Arm which
sent to representatives of the Mooney
&. Boland Agency the check for $72,000
mentioned j esterday.
Seeks to Recover Gems.
Mrs. Jenkins was then In Chicago
seeking to recover her stolen Jewelry.
After the gems had been returned she
was visited by a lawyer who said that he
represented the detective agency. He
showed a check for $72,000 which he said
had been Bent to her at the order of 'Mr.
Jenkins " According to the story told
to-day this check represented Mrs. Jen

It appears that In addition to lavishing
money on "Mrs. Jenkins" through the
most costly gems, gowns, automobiles,
