An interesting outcome of Li Sum Ling's visit to Pekin is the formation of a China-American Friends associa tion.

President Northrop of the Univer sity of Minnesota probably would not feel qualified to enter a Marathon race. But he has shown himself pos sessed of good qualities as a sprinter, even at 68 years of age.

SENATE H BO DAY CELEBRATES NATION8 BIRTH DAY BY Bid DAY'8 WORK. : WAS RECORD DAY FOR BUSINESS Long 8esalon Was Devoted to a Discussion of the Administra tion Provision of Pend ing Tariff Bill. Washington, D. C The Fourth of July was the senate's busy day. From 10 o'clock in the morning till 5:30 o'clock In the afternoon the senate la bored. The day was devoted in the main to the consideration of the ad ministration provisions of the bill and to the Brown resolution providing for the sumblssion of the question of an Income tax to the legislatures of the various states, which, while not a part of the tariff bill, is so related to it as to have made it necessary to con sider it In connection with the bill. A Record for Business. Not since the tariff bill has come into the senate has so much been ac complished within a day. Indeed, when the sitting came to an end, a summary of the proceedings showed that there was very little left to be done. The principal Item still to be con sidered was the tobacco tax, the fig ures on which had not been com pleted by the committee when the senate adjourned. Attention was given to the draw back feature of the bill, relative to which the finance committee made no recommendation beyond striking out the house provision which would have the effect of throwing the whole question into conference. In the sen ate, however, several amendments were made, some of which were per mitted, at Senator McCumber's in stance, to satisfy the grain producers of the northwest. A number of other minor 'additiona were also made, and all the adminis tration features disposed of. Early in the day, the income tax resolution of Senator Brown of Ne braska was adopted. The resolution submits to the legislatures of the states an amendment to the constitu tion, providing that congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on Incomes, from whatever source de rived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration. There were three hours of debate over this measure, the principal contest being over an amendment by Senathor Bailey submitting the amendment to conventions In the states, instead of the various state legislatures. The amendment was defeated, the division being largely along party lines. The Brown amendment was adopted unan imously. Senator Aldrlch hopes to have the bill passed today ' from committee of the whole to the senate. In the sen ate proper It will receive brief atten tion, and will then go to conference. The tobacco 'schedule will probably provoke considerable debate and the chairman of the finacce committee may be disappointed. Consideration of the bill is, however, nearing its finish in the senate. 8HOT WIFE'S AFFINITY; MUST SERVE LIFE TERM. Jackson, Miss. C. R.

"There really is nothing to say," re plied the cabinet officer. "We dis cussed nothing of especfal impor tance." "Do you mean to say you did not discuss politics?" the newspaper man queried.
