REFERRED TO FINANCE COMMITTEE Party Lines Strictly Drawn in Vote Upon Senator Gore's Motion to Di? rect Report Friday. Republicans Vot? ing to Lay on Table?Philippine Schedule Adopted. (n-.- Associated Press.) WASHINGTON, I? C. Line 1? ? Th-- message at president Taft recommending the Incorporation of n provision in the tariff bill for the taxation of the earnings of corporations anil the adoption of a resolution looking to an amend? ment of the constitution so as to per? mit the levying of an Income lax with i nt Interference from the courts, which was received by the Senate to? day was generally regarded by Sena? tors as of such transcendent Impor? tance as to place in the shade all questions pertaining strictly to the schedules nf the tariff bill The niensage was received early in the afternoon and after brief discus sion on the method < f proceeding was referred to Ibe ? awalttee on finance. Son-itor Roof occupied Ifen) chair when one of I he President's secre? taries appeared with the message in hand, bnl owing lo the fact that Senator Horton was nt the time en? gaged in making a speech the presen? tation of the message was delayed for some time. When Mr. Iturton con? cluded, but not until after Mr. Hey burn bad addressed the chair to pro? ceed with the discussion of the tart.T bill, the message was read. Full Senate Present. There was a full senate present and the document was awarded the most careful attention from all senators. S. nator Gore attempted to have the committee instructed to report on the income tax feature of the message by next Friday when, under general .?igreemenl. the income tax question is again to be taken up for considera tton. His motion was. however, voted down, and for the first time In many weeks the division was strictly along party lines, all the Republicans voting against that pro|>ositinn. During the informal discussion of the reference of the message Sena? tor Itailey gave notice that he would demand that provision be made for a graduation of any Income tax that might be provided for and intimated that much time would be necessary to get through a provision which did not carry that qualifieation. Philippine Products. After considerable debate the Sen? ate adopted the finance committee's recommendation regarding the admis? sion of Philippine products, but not until after two amendments had been voted down. Senator Foster, of Louisiana, occu? pied the early hours of the day with a s|?eech eu|K>sing the free admission of any Philippine sugar into the t"nit ed states. He look the |<osition that <vith the enrouragement that would tie given by allowing 5ftn.nc.n fop* of Phil? ippine product to come in free of duty, the production in the islands would be so rapidly increased thai it would soon exceed the quantity named lairing the afternoon Senator Ald rich presented the finance committee's substitute for the House *inr schedule and it received a maJ'W l>ortion of the attention of the Senate during the nf ternoon The committee amendmen' providing fr?r a graduated scale of r?ulv on the rin<- in rinr 're in place of the fixed rale'of the Hrnse bill.
