Five Republican SenatorBi United
With Demooratio Side, Can
Pass Various Tariff Bills
Washington, July 2.—T he

probably will be taken within
two weeks and reciprocity

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.
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.

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

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.
