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.

Puritas Distilled
Water Is Absolutely
Pure Always
Purity Obtained by Two Dis
tillations—Sparkle and Zest
J..; by Aeration with Ozone
A great educational wave Is sweep
ing over the country—a wave of purity.
The people are beginning to realize the
- value of purity in food and drink.
We are proud of having been in the
van of this movement— the
public an absolutely pure product In
drinking water. The purity of drink
ing water is Just as essential to the
" health of the body as is pure food.
And it is only by methods such as are
used in the production of Puritas that
you can be absolutely assured of pure
water. Puritas is pure water all the
time—every demijohn— the first
drop to the last.
One distillation of water is not suffi
cient for absolute purity. Puritas is
the only TWICE distilled water here
abouts. Puritas is the only water
hereabouts aerated with pure ozone.
The decided ■ thirst-quenching property
of Puritas is due to this method of
I aeration.
1 I Puritas is a necessity for your health
—and no luxury, when you can get 5
gallons for 40c. No trouble to get it,
either. Just telephone us, Home 10053;
Sunset, Main 8191, and we will see
that you are supplied promptly. Los

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.

that effect was issued today by Gen

ments have been transferred to white

Prima Donna Slain —
cable advices received in New York
from Berlin say that Fraulein Frieda
Barthold, the prima donna of the
Royal Opera house of Berlin, has been
shot and killed at her home by Frau
lein Auguste Zobel, a Berlin woman.
The tragedy, the dispatch says, was
due to Jealousy over a man to whom
the singer was engaged.
Seeking Winners An effort is
being made by the bureau of insular
affairs, war department, to learn the
present addresses of persons to whom
medals and diplomas were awarded in
connection with the exposition held in
St. Louis in 1904. The bureau desires
to deliver these medals, but having
lost all trace of persons to whom they
belong, they are being held here.
Forbids Exclusiveness — Per
emptory orders have been issued by
General Bell, chief of staff, that there
shall be no officers' club or similar
social organizations of officers at any
military post or station occupying any
part of a public building other than the
private quarters of an officer, unless

from thirst after wandering into the
sage brush from Umatllla and becom
ing lost. Despite the verdict there are
persons who still believe Hedberg was

and a draft for $75.
Cuba Disinterested —Cuba is
not vitally concerned in the tariff re
vision, according to Dr. Alfredo Zayas,
vice president of the island republic,
who Is staying In New York for a few
days. "What we desire now," he said,
"is a new reciprocity treaty to provide
for lower duties on sugar and tobacco.
Such a treaty will most likely be
framed soon and submitted at Wash
ington for consideration. There will
be no formal demand for the abroga
tion of the existing treaty, but we wish
a better one."
Many Aliens Arrive — More
than 10,000 aliens arrived In New York
