NEW TARIFF BILL
Clinirmitn Dliijjloy's Synopsis ol'Im
i() it lint Chances to llu .Untie.
Washington, March 15. The date
when tin' new tariff bill Is to ko Into
I'fioct Is named In the preliminary
drafts submitted to the huuse today as
May 1, 1S!7.
At quite a late hour In the session ot
the house Chuliniun Dlnglcy presented
for reference to the committee on ways
und means, of which It was well under
stood lie was again to be chairman,
the bill upon which he and his Republi
can associates have been engaged for
Most of the essential details ot the
bill, except its administrative f.uitures,
I.uao already been made known In these
despatches, llut In discussing the gen
eral scope and purport of the bill to a
representative of the United Associat
ed Presses today. Chairman Dingley
gave an interesting synopsis of what
lie expected of It as follows:
- TO RA1SK REVENUE.
The bill has two purposes, namely, to
raise additional revenue und to encouiugo
the industilus of the United States.
on the basis of the importations ot the
lust llscal year, lliu bill would inert-use
the revenue ubout $112,000,000, divided
among the several schedules roughly as
(a) Chemical. $3,500,000; (b) crockery
and glass waie,-$4,000,000; (c) metals, $I,ikjii.
OJO; (dl wood, 51,750,000; (e) sugar, $21,750,
(i0l; (f) tobacco, $7,000,000; (g) agricultural,
$0,300,000; (h) Illinois, $l,bll,li00; (I) cotton,
51,700,000; (j) Jute, linen and hemp, $7,Hio.
IhKj; (k) 'wool, $17,500,000; (k) manuructuris
of wool, $27,000,000: (1) silks, $1, 500.000; (m)
pulp and paper, $53,000; (n) sundries, $0,200,
000. This estimate is on the supposition that
the imports of each class of goods would
be the sume the next llscal year us In
the fiscal year ended last .Iuiih. Hut as
the Imports of wool were three times cs
gioat in pounds as In lS'JJ. the committee
assume that their excessive Importation
would be largely reduced by the proposed
bill, although the fart that our domestic
Piodtictlon of wool has diminished h.OO.MiOO
pounds since 1&113 will necessitate the Im
portation of much more wool now than In
the latter year. Assuming that the Im
jiortntlohs or wool will full oil' at hnt
cue-third from those of i, on account or
anticipation Imports to avoid duties, we
plr.ee the Increased revenue riom this
source nt $11,000,000. Anticipating also
that the Imports or wools will fall off
neaily f0 per cent, from the ehoinious Im
ports of ISM, we estimate the Incieuscd
revenue from this source under the pio
posed rates at about $ll,oe0,000. Frojn su
gar we estimate $20,000,000 addltlonnl rev
enue. Anticipating a considerable falling
off of Imports of Havana tobacco because
of the revolution In Cuba we lediice the
estimates of additional revenue to lie de
rrved from the tobacco schedule to $1,000,
000. The remaining schedules would af
ford a revenue of about SO1, mills on the
basis of the Imports of h, but as thi'
would probably be diminished Imports at
some points, although the gradual restor
ation of business activity would offset
this by Increasing the consumption of Im
ported luxuries, we reduce the estimate
on these to $31,000,000. Thes would aggre
gate an addltlonul revenue of $S0.0o6.000
the first year. A reduction of five or ten
inflllons for contingencies, would leave
$70,000,000 or $7r,,O00,O00 as the probable
it, r reused revenue from this bill the first
year, which would undoubtedly rise to
$100,000,000 the second year.
ABOVE l'ltOUAIibH RESULTS.
These estimates are below rather than
nbovo the probable result unless a consid
er ahlo dolay In the enactment of the bill
should greatly cnlnige the opportunity
for Imports of articles on which duties
are to be raised particularly wool and
woollens for speculative purposes. Un
doubtedly any delay beyond the first of
May In placing the bill on the statute book
would result In a large loss of revenue.
This Increase of revenue Is secured by
transfer! Ing wool, lumber, crude opium,
argols, paintings and statuary, straw or
naments, straw mattings, burlaps and
various other articles from the free list
of the present law to the dutiable lists,
by' Increasing the duty on woolens to
compensate the manufactures for the
duty placed on wool; by raising the duly
on sugar about three-fourths of a cent
per pound In order to encourage the pro
duction of sugar In this country, which It
Is believed can be done and thus give our
fanners a new crop which we now import
mainly abroad; by increasing the duty on
agricultural productions atfected by
Canadian competltiun and on Hue cotton
goods, some advanced manufactures of

"The Iron and steel schedule Is changed
very little from that schedule In the tar
iff of ISiil. the chunge being entirely In
the more advanced articles. The sumo is
true of tlio cotton schedule. In the tigrl-
cultural, wool and glass and citrthware ,
schedules alone arc the duties of the I

In a few cases Increased, witli the view !
of amply protecting und encouraging our
farming Interests at every possible point.
While the duty on clothing wool Is larger
in proportion to tlio foreign value than
on manufactured articles, yet It Is
thought desirable for the publlo Interest
and for our ngticulturo that wo should
produce that prima necessity for our
selves. The duty on carpet wools, as well

transferring such wools to tlio clothing

wool bus been restored to the into of the
act of 15,90.
"In framing this new tariff the aim has
been to make the duties specific or ut
least partly specific, so far as possible,
to protect the revenue and also protect
our own Industries. This has been done
in response to tlio wishes of the better
class of Importers, as well as of the ad
ministrators of the law mid or our own
producers. The very general substitution
