ALBUQUERQUE CfTfTKN. PAOH TnitEE. I III 0 INCREASE THE Congress Faces an Increas ingly Serious Problem In Fixing Tariff Sched ules. Washington, D. C, April E. Pres ident Tuft and the leaders In Con gress are worrh d over the diffieul ties that are In the way of getting sufficient revenue under any tariff Hill that may be enacted. The out look la nt good. The only way additional revenues can be secured s through some form f direct taxation, and to the sev eral plans looking to such taxes there Is loud objection. Kvery man In the country seems to favor the lowering of duties and- the imposition of di rect taxes on the man In the next csaaty. It is understood that Senator Al drleh has said that he will not put an Inheritance tax paragraph into the tariff bill his committee will re- port to the senate. It is doubtful if S the house will even stand for such amlUPe When It comes time for Mr. tax. Should this tax bo omitted, theiTaft tl) brlnf? pressurf, to bear, either treisury will be about $20,000,000 ,n tho dlrcctlon ot sufficient revenues pooret each year than other wise ! or of fanning party pledges, It w ill woii.d be the case. If the duty on, brought to bear on the Aldrich '.-a should be omitted, there will p committee, for the bill by that time aoout 2.0tiii.of( of prospective rev- wll, ,mV(. ml(,st.,i from the control of enue gone glimmering, and any fur- tll(, j,n,so. which will obviouslv nc their curtailment of the bill would ,.,.pt in conference hiiv provisions make it a mi Hire as a rovenu" pro- dueer. ; What, then. is Congress to do? And what will its attitude and that m the president be toward revision, in the light of the platform pledges 'of the Republican party? Senator Aldrich Is quoted here as holding that even an income tax law should not bo enacted. He Is quoted further ns holding that present dut ies should not be changed materially, but that the .-..venue question should . be solved by a radical reduction of appropriations. 1 ne aominaung section or me country, politically is the middle west, and that great section Is al most unanimously In favor of re vision downward. If the new tariff bill doesn't give it what It wants, there will be trouble in the Congres sional elections of next year,' and in the presidential election of 1912. There may be trouble anyway, so fas as that is concer ned, for It rarely happens that the political party which revises the tariff is able to hold control of the government. In this connection it may be stated that the sentiment In Congress Is growing In favor of Imposing an addl tloral tax of fifty cents a barrel on beer. Representative Haugen of Iowa this week announced that he end a number of other Republican House members were on the point of organizing for 'he purpose of bringing this aoout. He wants a mnorilto vote on th nnoutl.in ,.f nn added beer tax, and thinks he W'ill be able to muster enough votes to get it. He Is opposed to a tax on tea be cause he says It is a tax on the breakfast table, similar to what a tax on coffee would be. He thinks beer can very well afford this extra tax. During the Spanish war he says the brewers raised the price of beer to meet the extra tax then Imposed, and have not since reduced It. al though the extra tax came off short ly after the war was over. All members of Congress from prohibition .and local option states are said to be agreeable to going into the combination suggested by Mr. Haugen. The House insurgents have also seized on the beer tax as a Blue Flame 11UII u Wick ensures quick work and a cool kitchen.

They hold that their defeat In the rules fight was due largely to the brewers, agisted by Tammany Hall. It thus appears that the brewers are not yet out of the woods. On the question of the coffee pro v'slon of the Payne bill an interest ing discovery has been made by cer tain eastern interests, which are tell lng Congress that If the Payne bill's coffee provision should be come a law, It will place the entire control of the Brazilian coffee values In the hands of half a doen Wall street coffee op erators, even shutting out the gov ernment at Washington. The claim is made that under the terms of the Payne bill, fixing the tax on valorized coffee at a sliding scale, equal to the eport taxes of the exporting countries, the coffee markets of South America would be manipulated from Wall street. Here Is the way in which It Is said the scheme would work: Whenever the American Imports had Imported sufficiently, they would prevail on Sao Paulo to Increase the export tax, whereupon the American tax would s,.('c up with It. effectually closing he floor to all competing countries. The door could be as easily opened, :t Is claimed, by the opposite pro cess, when fresh Importations were dired. It Is not charged that the men who framed the Payne bill knew how their coffee tax would work, and now that the discovery has been made, It is pretty safe to sar that the bill will be amended to meet the conditions her . outlined. The tariff bill which will go t president for approval, will be lar. written by Senator Aldrich and his associates on the Senate finance com- having the apprnwil of th House.

MITCHELL FELIPE GURULE THE LAST FIGHT Government attorneys Today Begin Arguments Against the Trust and Of ficers. Washington, April Today in St. Louis there will begin wli.it may ! the final fight of the government to have the great Standard Oil com pany declare,! to lie un unlawful mon opoly In restraint of the trade of the- country. There has been me confusion In the public mind as to the scope of the case which will be argued. It .i.is nothing ut all to do with the J29, uoiuiih) Hue case, nor is It a criminal suit. The desire of the government is to destroy Standard Oil as a trust and every energy of the officials for two years haa been exerted to com pass the end of success. The present administration has re ceived this Standard Oil case s a legacy from the preceding adminis tration. The officials of government who are directly connected with tne prosecution of the caee know that William H. Tuft's desire for their sue cess Is just as strong as was that of Theodore Roosevelt when under his direction proceedings were Initiated. It can oe aald with no fear that contradiction will come that the presi dent will regard the dissolution of the Standard Oil company as un unlaw ful combination formed In restraint of trade, as an achievement that will give more popular credit to hig ad ministration than perhaps anything else that can be accomplished. The preparations for the argument in St. Iouis have gone on with the same heart and energy for the work that marked the beginning of the proceedings two years ugo. The offi cials know the administration is with tl.cm, and they know it despite the fact that efforts have been made from time to time to make It appear that there would be no sorrow in the White House if the Standard Oil should win this fight for its existence as an unlawful combination. The suit against the oil trust is brought under the Sherman law. It was entered in November, 1906, in the circuit court for the eastern di vision of the eastern judicial district of Missouri. Since its Instigation then- has been an investigation car ried on under the general direction of Herbert Knox Smith, the commis sioner of corporation). A motion ran made by the defendants In St. Louis to dismiss the suit for want of Juris- diction, but tliis was overruled by the court. Kranklin Kerriss as ap- Inted as referee to take testimony, and ooth id s were heard at differ ent tunes during a period of one year the principal hearings being held at New York. Cleveland and Chicago. Ill St 1ouis the matter will resolve its If into one of arguments only. On the strength of the showing that the g vertiment makes before the three judges who will decide the cas. , de pends the future of the oil company as it is at present constituted. TUe jurists in w. lose hands the fate of the company will rest are Walter H. San born, Willis Van Devanter ami Klm-T I'. Adams. The representatives of the government, the only attorneys will will enter into the actual argumen's on beh.iif of the t'nited States, are Frank li. Kellogg and C. 11. Morrison, who have "been with" this case from its very inception. Tile government's ( hiiru-ji aKaitist the Standard oil company ale a mul 1. 1 ii If. They run all the way from i.nf.iir methods of competition anJ I lie payment of rebates on oil prices, to the funning of bogus companies that have been or are now operating in tiie interest of t lie said defend ants.

The government's prayer for tlw dissolution of the Oil tmst covers several pages of manuscript. Th sense of it may be had from this ex tract: "The United States of America prays your honor to order, adjudge, and decree that the combination and conspiracy hereinbefore described i' unlawful, and that all acts done or to be done to carry it out are In de rogation of the common rights of all the people of the United States an I in violation of the act of Congress of July 2. 1S90, entitled "an act to pro tect trade and commeroe against un lawful restraint and monopolies,' aw' that the defendants, nnd each and every one of them and their efforts, directors, (stockholders, agents and si rvants, and each nnd every one of tlieni. ijixi perpetually enjoined from doing any act In pursuance of or for the purpose of carrying out the same." If the court grants the plea of the attorneys for the United states In Its entirety, the standard -oil company, at. a trust unlawfully formed and earring on its operations hi restraint of trade, presumably vviil pass out d existence. The company, however, so the feeling of the government offi cials seems to run, may endeavor on the -advice of attorneys to evade the rulings of the court. If this course Is pursued, the defendants forthwith will be brought Into court on the charge of contempt, because ot the violation of the injunction. Precisely this tiling happened In the beef cuta and a famous Immunity decision wus mailt1 and there came the memorable blast from the White House. It Is not believed, however, there has been anything done in the prep aration of tho case against the Stand ard till and In the method of exam ining witnesses to furnish water enough for an immunity bath. The government believes If it wiiw its case in St. Louis, it will have won it for all time. The court hearing the arguments probably will not render itj decision until two or three months have passed. It may do one of three things. It may find absolutely for the defendant: It may grant all tho prayer ot the United States, or It may modify its decree and K'v'e only a part of what tho plaintiff asks. If the court in in doubt on certain matters, It can certify the case to the circuit court of appeals. If the government wins its case, the defendants, of course, will appeal to the appellute court -and then If I necessary, to the United States su preme court. In the minds of the people the Standard Oil company Is the embodi ment of all trust evils. In the car toons of the day tho octopus almost Invariably is shown with an oil can crowning Its head. The Hoosevelt ad ministration felt, as the present ad ministration feels, that a victory in a suit for the dissolution of the Standard Oil company will count for more In the eyes of the country than a dozen victories over minor cor porations. The government in on the eve of one of the supreme tests of the value ot the Sherman law as an Instru ment to protect trade and commerce against unlawful restraint and mon opoly.

Otto and his brother, twice a day, get under u big timber bridge that weighs 2,200 pounds. While they are supporting it with their legs un automobile, weighing 2.000 pounds and containing five and sometimes six men, passes over it. All the time Otto and his brother cuttings Is charged to the United States forest service. Cuttings for experimental planting and informa tion on management of the willow holts are furnished those who make the request of the forester at Wash ington. The government recognizes the importance of good cuttings, a point moro commonly overlooked than the mutter of cultivation. Only the best and most thrifty rods are selected for each season's distribution. To produce u deslra," grade of rods It is very important to select planting stock not only from thoroughly tested j varieties, but the cuttings should be taken from the tallest, perfectly straight, cylindrical, branchless, and fully mature rods. High grade bas ket willows can be raised only by be ing sure that the cuttings planted are from parent stock above the aver age. The policy of the forest service is to Increase the number of important basket willows nnd determine their value under different soil and climat ic conditions, und as the final tests of new varieties ure completed, those proved to be valuable will be added to the distribution list. Cuttings nf new und untried basket willows were obtained from Europe a J en r ugo und planted in the si r vice's experimental ground. Close observations will be made upon the growth of these and if the results are favorable during the tirst 3 years, cuttings from these varieties will be distributed in the United States. In case of some varieties a much longer time may elapse before their value can be established. The forest service is receiving a constantly increasing number of re quest fur basket willow cuttings. These requests conn- from farmers all over the country, many of them com ing through members of Congress. The service Is endeuvoring to stimu late the basket willow Industry in this country by distributing cuttings ef the most approved varieties of willow and tile four varieties tested for the last live years in th experi mental holt at Arlington, Va.. can now be confidently distributed. The behavior of the plants has been cure fully observed as to tin- quantity and quality of the crop to their resistance and lack of resistance to disease js well as other points that would af fect the profitableness of each variety.
