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
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.

Portland, Me. Mistaking the pro

Corcoran, an aeronaut, 28 years old,
of Lowell, Mass., cut loose with his
parachute when about 500 feet from
the earth at the Fourth of July cele
bration here yesterday, and was
dashed to the ground, meeting almost
Instant death in the presence of 5,000
spectators. Corcoran was employed by
Prof. Joseph La Roux of this city, with
whom the municipal authorities con
tracted for balloon ascensions and
parachute jumps yesterday at the
eastern promenado. It was arranged
that Corcoran should drop with his
parachute at a height of 5,000 feet
when he heard a certain number of
revolver shots from La Roux on the

place, Corcoran, not hearing La Roux

"An itching humor covered both my
hands and got up over my wrists and
even up to -the elbows. The Itching
and burning were terrible. My hands
got all scaly and when I scratched, the
surface would be covered with blis
ters and then get raw. The eczema
got so bad that I could not move my
thumbs without deep cracks appearing.
I went to my doctor, but his medicine
could only stop the Itching. At night
I suffered so fearfully that I could not
sleep. I could 'not bear to touch my
hands with water. This went on for
three months and I was fairly worn
out. At last I got the Cutlcura Reme
