Jr %. &y .-^yx~' WAR ON TREATY IS APPROACHING END Five Republican SenatorBi United With Demooratio Side, Can Pass Various Tariff Bills Washington, July 2.—T he backbone of the progressive op position to Canadian reciproci ty seems wilted and a vote probably will be taken within two weeks and reciprocity adopted. Then will come to question of passing the house re is a through the Senate. The pro gressive Republicans ins is that they wish to adopt a free list bill and also bills revising all the important schedules, bat the majority of the members feel that such measures should be framed in view of the Re* publican principle ot protection. ABANDON "REASONABLE PWSFITS" PROVISION The progressives seem will ing to abandon the provision of -the last National Republican platform which calls for '"rea sonable profits/' but they are not willing to reduce the tariff below the figures needed to af ford protection sufficient to cover the difference in the wage cost of production. Whether sufficient votes to paes any tariff bills can be procured under these eircumstaaces is involved in speculation. "We will not budge au inch to meet the Republican insur gents," said Senator Johnson of Alabama, Democrat, todav* "We voted for the insurgent amendments to the Payne Aldrich tariff bill, because it was the only chance we had of getting lower rates, but we are not disposed to join with .them again. We will stand by the bills sent over from the House, and will be glad to have the in surgents' support in passing them. If we are not able to put them through this time, it will be only two years when we will have the votes in the Senate to adopt these Democratic meas ures." NAY ME N THOROUGHGOING RE VISION Only five progressive Repub licans united with the Demo cratic side, if the minority forces can be kept intact, will be required to pass the woolen, cotton, free list and other tariff bills. Should Senators La Fol lette, Cummins, Clapp, Poin dexter and Works vote for the Democratic bills in the event they are not able to get favor able action upon the amend ments they will propose, it will mean thoroughgoing revision. That there is a probability of lis result is now being predict ec Bat no one is willing to ven tare an authoritative prediction as to what will be done. The lack of effective leadership due to the absence of a cohesive majority makes the situation muddled and the future most uncertain. p-\' HoutM lor Sal*. f- I have several residences for aale.

Big Fees Charged Capitalization by the United States Steel corporation far in excess of property values. An average rate of profit fropi 1901 to 19 tO on the corporation's actual investment, as computed by the bureau, of 12 per cent. An almost continuous de crease in the corporation's pro portion of the output of princi pal steel products, but a mark ed increase in its ownership or control of iron ore deposits. The bureau places the value of the ore reserves of the cor poration at $10(5,000,000, while the corporation itself places their value at $700,000,S)0.

Switzerland is in an uproar as the outgrowth of a recent decision of its federal court. The decision was equiv alent to a declaration that a married woman in that country cannot be held to any contract which she makes with out her husband's approval. This de cision leaves a bank which instituted the litigation to whistle for $6,000 which was risked in a contract with a married woman, whose husband was not called into consultation when it was made. As to what should be done, differences of opinion prevail, says the Milwaukee Wisconsin. Some business men are for the enactment of a law holding women equally liable with men for carrying out the provi sions of contracts. Others suggest that all married women in Switzer land shall bear a small official indel ible tattoo mark' on their wrists so that they may be1 recognized. The finding of the Swiss court is by no means without analogy. In respect of contracts made by one Individual being void without the consent of an other it is matched by the law in this country which prevents a husband from selling the family homestead un less his wife joins in the deed. After all the Swiss situation is not so ter rible for people in traiie. It is figured that there are at least ten billions of acres of well-watered land In the tropics, and this would at ip gjesSpHML« 170,000,(100,000 pounds of bananas.

Under such conditions the world would support 166,000,000,000 human beings—Just 100 times the present population—and yet tbs wise men fear tbs world's food supply will run out because the wheat lands of the temperate zones are about all taketf up.

While walking near the Lutheran Bible school he took hold of a guv wire that, upon'which a 2300 volt primary wire .was grounded. He was unable to let go although the current knocked him down, his free hand being burned bj' com ing in com.ic. with the ground. Gilbert tii-t «.:«•, happened to be riding by at. iiie time, came to his assistance, jerking him loose from U'.e wit'- am', melting quite a sh.ei in return. If the grounu had been dtiuip or had the boysbt en ou a cement walk at the ttme, they would doubt less both have been killed.

A.Kentucky man went violently in sane while riding in a Chicago taxi cab. It is calculated to have that ef fect to watch the register shove up the cost. Furthermore, the result seems to have been a measure of economy since it evidently cut short the taxation of the taxi. This is the time of the year when certain people go to the suburbs on Sundays and tear flowering shrubs and trees to pieces while the own ers thereof are not watching. It is one of the very poorest ways of satisfying a longing for the beautiful. Massachusetts' oldest woman ad vises against flirting if one wishes to live long, as flirting is "a useless waste of energy." Especially is this true after one has passed one's nine tieth birthday. Prince LidJ, who is soon to be crowned emperor of Abyssinia, has a wife who is only nine years old. He might at least celebrate his corona tion by making her a present of a new doll. Germany has banned freak shapes in shoes. Possibly because the war lord discovered that they were spoil ing feet for marching—hammer toes, flat feet and the like. As the news comes from Paris that the harem skirt has been condemned there, the sporadic but strenuous ca reer of that garment may be consid ered finally ended. Doctors tell us that the household cat Is a carrier of disease germs. We know from experience that a cat in the vicinity often causes insomnia. Twelve million dollars' worth ot peanuts were consumed in this coun try last year. This looks like a rather full grown Infant industry.
