The question of an inheritance 'ax
is to be threshed out at this session of
Congress in connection with the tariff
and Im-ome tn measure. Possibly an
inheritann tax provision may be hitched
to the Fnderwood bill.
Onl a feu flays ago it was made
public that John Jacob Astor had be
queathed property worth $10,000,000 to
young Vincent Astor. This has stirred
up attention in Congress, the feeling
being pronounced that so ast a sum
should not be permitted to go down from
one generation to another withoJt di
vision with the community.
Senaor Norris of Nebraska. Progres
sive Republican, will shortly present an
Inheritance tax bill in the form of a
proposed amendment to the tariff and
income tax bill. He plans to exempt
moderute inheritances, but to get after
tne Dig omce, anu 10 srauuaie me in. j
so that it will be as high as 23 per j
cent on the swollen fortunes. I

Declare Standard Oil
Offered Loan to China
That the Standard OH Company has
offered to loan JC3.000.000 to the Chinese'
government In return for the exclusive
tights to exploit petroleum In the na
tion. Is asserted In copies of foreign
I newspapers lecelvcd here. No confirma

by the S'ate Department.
"l very heartily congratulate you on
your splendid -victory." telegraphed
President Wilson to John J. Mitchell.
Congressman-elect from the Thirteenth
Massachusetts district, whose selection
at the polls Is hailed as a significant
triumph t)f the low tariff party In the
very citadel of the protective tariff.
The result has strengthened the tariff
leaders in Congress, because the only
reply they need, when the new Schedule
''K." relating to the woolen and cotton
duties. Is attacked. Is to read the elec
tion returns from .the district which Is
most deeply affected by the cuts.
The Republicans timed the election so
as to have a distinct influence In Con
gress In case of a G. O. P. victory. The
ract mat tney were signally defeated is
taken to mean that even Massachusetts,
which suffers severely under the Under
wood tariff bill. Indorses the new policy.

The Facts Are that
the people of the United

cheap sugar. But sugar is
cheaper in the United States
than in any other country on

domestic sugar industry that
keeps the price of sugar low
by healthy competition.

THERE are two ways of finding work; one is to watch the
"Help Wanted" columns of The Times, and the other is to
advertise under "Situations Wanted." A combination of the
two will bring you better results in one day than you could
obtain in a hundred days in the old way of goin from place to
place. "The Want Ad Way is the Modern Way"
