SPAN OF HUMAN LIFE MAY REACH 150 YEARS Actuaries Are Hampered in Estimating by False Facts About Youth and Age NEW YORK, May 7.—When tuber culosis and other preventable causes of excessive mortality are mastered, when those less than 50 tell the truth about their youth and those more than 80 do the same about their age, It may be possible for actuaries to figure on 150 years as the span of human life. The national death rate has laregely decreased, but the decrease is almost entirely conlined to the infantile pe riod. Over 50 years old, the decrease has been very small, or an actual Increase has been shown by statistics. From 1889 to 1901 there was a decrease of seven in each 1000 of population In the total number of deaths, but the rate of deaths from heart disease, cancer, certain functional ailments and suicide, Is 50 per cent higher In the United States than the mortality from the same causes fifty years ago. These and many other Interesting facts about the duration of human life were presented by John K. Gore of Newark, N.

SENATE LOWERS TARiff ON LEAD (Continued from P»«e One! Senator Stone thought H4 cents a pound on lead ore was more than It ought to be, even from the standpoint of the protectionist. In the opinion of Mr. Carter a decided majority of the senate was in accord with the lead industry. The rate of % of a cent a pound, he declared, was ruinous. He defended the Aldrlch rate of Wi cents a pound. The propositions of Mr. Stone he characterized as ele mentary. Resuming his opposition to the levy ing of any duty on pig lead In addition to the duty of iy> cents a pound pro vided for lead ore, Mr. Bristow de clared that it cost no more to make pig lead in this country than abroad. Mr. Bristow was interrupted by Sen ators Aldrich, Heyburn, Borah, Smoot, Sutherland and others, all contending the labor cost In producing lead was enough greater than abroad to justify the differential of % of one cent per pound, as proposed by the committee on finance. Mr. Bristow said he would offer no opposition to the proposed duty on lead In ore, but he protested against any additional duty on pig lead, the product of the ore. Senator LaFollette read from a news paper a statement of an agreement among the lead ihterests of the world by which they were assured of harmon ious action in the matter of fixing prices. The statement also declared that the Guggenhelms and other lead producers were included In the com bination. Mr. LaFollette then said that some years ago he had acquired lead and zinc ore property In Wisconsin and for that ro;i!?on would withdraw his vote on the lanrl schedule. A vote was taken on committee amendments to section 179, the effect of which was only to fix the duty on lead contained in lead-bearing ore at 1H cents a pound, which was the amount carried in the house bill. The amend ment en rried by a vote of 53 to 19. Republican members of the senate finance committee were visited today by a delegation of sixty hat manufac turers and wholesale dealers represent ing twenty-eight different states. The hat manufacturers were given an Increase over the Dingley rates in the house bill, but the duties were scaled down by the senate committee to about 25 per cent below the Dingley rates. The manufacturers assert that many of them will be driven out of business if these rates are adopted. They will call on President Taft tomorrow.

May 7.—When Mrs. Charles T. Barney brought her auto mobile back from Europe with her two years ago she entered it at the customs office as a household effect, which had been in use for more than one year in her European establishment, and was therefore not dutiable.

MONTANA'S BREWERS TO RECOGNIZE UNION STRIKE ENDS IN MISSOULA; WON BY WORKERS Hope Expressed That Unfair Lilt Will Lead to Victory in Other Towns of the State BUTTE, Mont., May 7.—The Missoula breweries have signed the agreement with the Brewery Wooers' union for two years, agreeing to recognize the new union composed of brewery engi neers, and have been removed from the unfair list. The strikers there returned to work this morning. The strikers feel sure that breweries in other outside towns will fall into line and sign the agree ment very soon, in which event the light will narrow down to Butte. The building trades council has or dered Its members to do work at no sa loon, brewery or other place where the product of the Montana breweries is made or handled. This brings the building trades union, excepting the bricklayers, arrayed face to face against the miners, engineers and the mill and smelter men's unions, and the fight promises to be one to a finish, as there seems to be no possi bility that any union on either side will change its attitude.
