Changes Made, in Payne Tariff
Bill Reduce Measure's
Productiveness > ' \
Free Trade With Philippines
Considered One of Most
Important Provisions
. WASHINGTON. April 11.— The esti
mates of the revenue which the Payne,
tariff bill will produce have been "re
•iuccd nearly $20,000,000 through the
amendments made by the house. The
s'-nate finance committee must pro
vide means for making up this differ
ence if the original estimates are to
be met. The striking out of several
countervailing duty clauses will lessen
the bill's productiveness another
The amendment taking off the S
cent duty on tea subtracts $7,000,000
from the estimated revenues. The
f»iriking out of the countervailing dim
on, coffee disposes of what' probably
would be $15,000,000 in duties.
Taking out the countervailing pro
proviso for lumber and for petroleum
means a lost opportunity to increase
the revenues by several million dol
lars, it is estimated.
The senate finance committee mate
rially reduced many of the Dingjey
>HVs schedules as it passed the house,
but in order to increase the revenue
producing power of the Payne bill the
oommitiee must take different action
with regard to the latter measure.
In 1897 the senate committee placed
a duty of iv cents per pound on hides,
nhich was later changed to 15 percent,
'•in 8s it pased .the house the Payne
•nil pla.es hides on the free list.
Under the Dingley law hides have
.produced more than $3,000,000 revenue
annually. "
There are many changes in the
Payne bill from the provisions of the
JMngJey lav.-. Its maximum and mini
mum retaliatory feature, the addi
tional method of valuation for the
purpose of preventing undervaluations j
and its provision for the $40,000,000
issuance of Panama bonds and a $250.
"00.000 issue of treasury certificates,
are- new. An inheritance tax, by
it 's hoped that $-0,000,000 will
\>k collected, is provided for.
The two increases that stand out
most are those in women's and chil- i
<J.rrn s gloves and hosiery.
The duties on lead ore and pig lead
«re materially reduced, while the
lumber schedule is cut in half. The
differential on refined sugar is reduced
•> cents per hundred pounds. »
One of the most important provi
sions of the bill Js the Philippine free
:?ade provision, which permits the tren
• ptry of every product of the islands
except rice, and exempts from duty
*ny articles imported from the United
States into those islands. The amount
of sugar which may be imported is
iimu«»d to SOO.OOO tons annually and
tlie -free importation of tobacco i« re
stricted to 300.000 pounds of wrap
per. 3.000,000 pounds of filler tobacco
\u25a0 and 150,000,000 cigars.
\u25baSenator Aldrich asserted tonight that
75 per tent of the articles used by all
-the people had been reduced and that
the free list had been lengthened to an
extent that would be surprising to
everybody. The committee members
• have tried to make their recommenda
tions popular and they predicted to
night-that their efforts would be appre
. The Payne bill increases materially
the rates on brandy, alcohol, gin, grain
spirits and cordials and liqueurs, but
made practically no Increase on cham
pagnes. The senate committee has de
cided upon an Increase amounting to
about 2a per cent above existing rates
on wines of all kinds.
A number of other articles regarded
as luxuries have been increased, and
the tariff experts feel confident that the
bill will produce as much revenue as Is
needed. All of the increases on per
fumes and toilet articles, provided by
the Payne bill, will be reported.
An especial effort was made to re
duce rates on the co called "breakfast
table" articles of commerce.
' The senate stands about two to one
against free lumber and its advocates
fear-lhey will not be able to maintain
the reduction agreed upon by the house, j
The fight for free hides has begun al- !
No attention was paid .today by the
senate committee to the so called
••joker" in the Payne bill as it passed
th«» liousp. Petroleum and its products
are among the articles to be reported
to the senate without recommendation.
Tbe biH as "amended by the senate
committee on finance was sent to the
oublic printer late tonight and will be
\u25a0eadv for presentation to the full com-
X mittee at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning.
\n effort will be .made to induce the
minority to consent to the reporting of
I the bill to the senate tomorrow.

President of Los Angeles City
Council Determines to Secure
Author's Scalp
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
LOS A.VGELES, April 11.-If the
president of the : city council, Nlles
Pease, has his way, Charles F.-Lumsnls,
the picturesque author, archaeologist
and wearer of green corduroys, will
lose the- position' of librarian of the
Los Angeles public library. "
President Pease has sided with Miss
Julia Blandy, a former employe of the
library, \u25a0 whose . position \vas -abolished
soon after she' r had made charges of
incompetency against: Lummls. \- *
Miss Blandy said that the library
was mismanaged and that Lummls used
several of the employes for his own
work, dictating articles for publica
tions that had no connection with the
library. .
These allegations were denied by the
librarian, who offered proof that he
: had never used public employes .for
! private service. The*n came the. city
auditor, who held up the librarian's bill
for several hundred cigars' smoked by
workmen who moved the books from
one building to another 1 .
.To "cap all his troubles the presi
dent of the council is after Lummis'
scalp and says he will not rest until
he gets it. Lummis is at present rusti
cating on the desert.

Anty Drudge's Idea of Clubs/
Organizer of Woman's Clvb — "Anty, we want you to join
our club for the study of sociology, economics and*
the general uplifting of womankind. ' ' \ -Jt I
Anty Drudge—^"All right, my dear. We'll begin by tell-
ing all women about the new way of washing^ clothes
with Fels-Naptha in cold or lukewarm water. Itdoea
\u0084 away with boiling and hard-rubbing, saves work,
time, worry and money, and does more to help women
; than all the sociology, and economics in creation." .
When women first began to wash
clothes, they soaked them in a stream and
beat them with a paddle. A hard job it
was then to get rid of dirt. >
Then someone found that fat and lye
made a substance which, mixed with hot
water and rubbed hard, cleaned things
pretty well. This was soap.
Finally, came Fels-NaptKa.
Fels-Naptha isn't simply good soap;
it's different altogether from soap as you
\u25a01 .\u25a0 -' :«.V'v.'-' '"."•.'.\u25a0"
\r x\ c\\\t if .........
Fels-Naptha marks as big an advance
over soap in its usual meaning, as ordinary
soap itself did over the paddle.
Ordinary soap calls for much hard-
rubbing and plenty of boiling water to take
away dirt. Some kinds of stains, greases
and blood it simply won't remove.
But Fels-Naptha cleans without hard-
rubbing and you don't use hot water at all.
With Fels-Naptha all you need is cool
or lv kewarm water.
Think how this cuts all the terror, out -
of washday.
