An auditorium with a seating capa
city of 25,000 was yesterday purchas
ed for $25,000 by the city of Columbia
and the executive comnmiftte of the
South arolina Agricultural and Me
chanical society. The new building

the State fair grounds. The building
-will be ready for use in time for the
greater State fair in 1911.
At a conference between officers of!
the State fair society and 'officials of1
the city of Columbia, held here several
weeks ago, it was decided to purchase
the building for $25,000, the city to
pay one-half the interest and the
fair society one-half on the bonds to
be issued. The final arrangements for,
the purchase of the building were
The building is of steel, 167 feet
wide and 400 feet long and was used
at the; Jamestown exposition for audi
torium purposes. Later it was remov

say that the building is large enough
to accommodate the Thursday crowd
at the State fair, which always num
bers more than 25,000 persons.
The building will be used by the
citizens of Columbia for an audito

LOWER HOUSE PASSES
WOOL TARIFF MEASURE
Washington, June 20.-The house
-of representatives, by a vote of 221
to 100, today passed the Underwood
wool tariff revision bill providing for
a reduction of the duty on wool and
manufactures of wool. Twenty-four
Republicans voted with the Demo
crats for the passage of the measure,
and one Democrat, Representative
Francis, of Ohio, voted against it.
Many amendments -were offered and
voted down, the only one being a
slight chang'e in phraseology.
Almost five hours were spent by
the bouse in debate under the five
mninute rule. Immediately preceding
the final vote, a motion offered by Rep
'resientative. Payne (N. Y.) that the
bill be resubmitted to the ways and
means commieee with instructions
-that it await a report from the tariff
board on the woolen industry before
making final report of the bill was logt
by a vote of 189 to 118.
Kept Forces Together.
Representative Underwood, chair
man of the ways and means commit
tee, and in charge of the bill, kept his
:forces well together in their opposi
tion to all amendments. While some'
Democrats proposed amendments,
with one exception, they voted
with the party when the bill came to
Representative Murdock, one of the
i.nsurgent Republicans who finally vot-'
.-ed for the bill, proposed several
-amendments placing certain grades of
-wool on the free list. His purpose in.
these -amendments, he stated, was to
give to 'the American peopre protec
tion fom the worsted trust by mak
ing free "those articles which enter
in-to the manufacture of trust-controll
ed woolen products."
.Harrison With Party.
Mr. Murdock appealed to Represen
tative Harrison (N. Y.), a Democratic
member of the ways and means com
mittee, and to others of 'the party who
'had favored placing wool on the free
list, to support him. Mr. Harrison re
plied that "he would vote for the bill,
:although he would have placed raw
-wool on the free list if his personal
desires had prevailed."
The bill places -a duty of 20 per
cent. ad valorem on raw wool im
ports as against an average duty of a
little more than 44 per cent. ad
valorem under the present law. On
partly manufactured wool and on
products manufactured in whole or in
-part from wool the average duty un
der- the proposed law would be about
42.5 per cent. ad valorem as com
pared with the present average ad
valorem duty of more than 90 per
cent. The ways arid means committee
has estimated that -the bill would re
duce the annual revenue under the
woolen schedule of the p11esent tariff
law by mo-re than $1,000,000.
The bill prescribes that it shall be
in effect MJanuary 1 next, but it is not
believed that the bill will pass the
senate at this session.
