FIND 'JOKER' IN TARIFF MEASURE TOY ANIMALS TAXED AS H^SH AS LIVING ONES ECCENTRICITIES OF NEW SCHED ULE ARE EXFOSED Clothes and Ornaments for Dolls As. sessed the Same as Those for Women—Experts Show Fallacies [By AaioclatM Press.] CHICAGO, 111., March 27.—Another •Joker" has been discovered in the Payne tariff bill. Experts in the for eign buying department of a local store say that toy animals, retailing at present for a few cents, are to become as expensive to Import into this coun try as are the living animals which they represent in miniature, if the bill becomes law. A toy horse, for instance, worth 11, will, under the eccentricities of the pro posed measure, be taxed $30, just the same rate as will be collected for a thoroughbred racer. The experts also rind that many kinds of clothes and ornaments for dolls will be taxed at the same rate as clothes and ornaments for the American - woman. The cause of the peculiar situation found to exist under the pending law with reference to toys is contained In paragraph 427, which reads as follows: "Dolls, dolls' heads and toys, 35 per cent ad valorem; provided that toys made In imitation or miniature of, or bearing the same name as articles that are provided for in the dutiable list of this section by individual or class de signation, shall pay the same rate of duty as such articles, but in no case shall any toys pay less than the rate of duty Imposed upon miscellaneous manufactures of the material of which such toys are wholly or in chief value composed." The "Joker" Is mainly tucked away In that part of the paragraph relating to toys made In "Imitation or minia ture" of articles mentioned elsewhere in the bill. The experts declare that this means simply what it says, and that toys which are miniatures of things else where specified must pay the tax of those articles.

I ■■' J; & SAYS PARTY HAS KEPT PROMISES NICK LONGWORTH DEFENDS TARIFF POLICY Admits Republicans Do J^ot Consider Measure Perfect, but Believes It Embraces Principle of Protection [By Associated Press.] WASHINGTON, March 27.—Declar ing that the Payne bill is a practical fulfillment of the pledge of the Repub lican party, Representative Longworth of Ohio spoke today In defense of its various provisions. "No tariff bill in history that I know of has ever been frame.l by Democrats and Republicans acting together," said Mr. Longworth. "It is a matter of per sonal regret to me that I cannot have the pleasure of seeing- a complete Dem ocratic tariff measure. I confess to a feeling of deep curiosity to know on what basis the gentleman from Mis souri and the gentleman from Alabama and the gentleman from Texas could have met." Mi. Longworth declared the Republi cans do not claim that the Payne bill is in all respects perfect. "No one of us believes that there is everything in it which ought to be in It, and nothing in it which ought not to be," he said. "We do claim for it, however, that it represents a bona fide it vision of the tariff from top to bot tom. "The Republican party always has favored and always will favor the pol icy of protection, but we do not favor rates so high as to she.lter monopolies and which amount in effXit to prohibi tion." Mr. Longworth defended the expend itures of the government, and said he believed the time is at hand when the government must spend more for the improvement of Inland waterways. He I said coal and iron have been placed on the free list, and the lumber tariff cut in half, In order to conform with the proposed conservation of the natural resources.
