More Compromises May Be Made Fem inine Vote Feared on Some Schedules Probable Law Will Pass Within Few Weeks. By DAVID LAWRENCE. (Special DixpaCch to The Reformer.) Copyright 1022. WASHINGTON, Aug. 10. The end of one of the longest tariff battles in American history is here. Coming out of it all is the highest tariff hill since the Civil war. ' For throe or four weeks the bill will be considered by a conference committee of the house and senate, and while both bodies must finally approve the action of the conference committee before the measure goes to the White House for .signature, the chances are there will be relatively few changes in conference and that the debate on the conference report will require only a few days. Members of both houses are anxious for an ad journment so as to be able to give their undivided attention to the autumn cam paign so the urge for hasty consideration of legislation from now on will mean stepping on the legislative accelerator in earnest. It cannot be said truthfully that the Republicans are satisfied with the Ford-ney-MeCumber bill, as it will be known in tariff history. Economic conditions throughout the world have been uncer tain and costs of production have been changing with the rise and fall of labor ju-ices since the war. ' President Harding's request fcr pow?r to proclaim other rates if the new rates shall be found burdensome or inequitable has been written into the senate bill and there's a chance that this provision will receive much attention in conference for there is one school of thought which be lieves the power granted is too large and another which holds that the power is too restrictive to of any consequence as a corrective. On Calendar 16 Mont lis. For ltt months the tariff has been on the calendar of both houses. Mr. Hard ing called a special session to consider taxation and the tariff in April, 1021. The emergency tariff bill was passed as a stop-gap and it was argued that the new measure would be a "permanent tariff bill,'' but as both the senate and house have gone deeper into their tasks and learned more about conditions of trade the word "permanent" has gradually bi-on eliminated until it is doubtful whether the leaders of either house would care to predict that.the, Fordney-McCum-. her bill will go unrevised in the next few years. One factor which is new in tariff mak ing is the feminine vote. In the past the influence of the household matron was only indirectly applied through the masculine ballot. However, the woman of the house and her daughters who buy things will have a voice in the matter. Retail stores, who have fought the new tariff bill, of course, have large numbers of women among their customers. They will not hesitate to tell their customers where the responsibility lies for higher prices. Congress has felt sensitive about this from the very beginning. The best evi dence of it was in the vote of free hides. There revolt in the senate came almost entirely lxeause of a recognition that the American people' s shoe bill would be in creased and that women voters would re member such an increase when they went to the !olls. Rut skillful as the tariff makers have tried to be in avoid ing the antagonism of women, there are many articles on which high duties have been proclaimed which will iwlirwtlv in. TV V- IE . . .'

Manley Brothers Co., Inc. (460) crease the cost to the consumer. Some of these increases have been acknowledged fran'-ly in the tariff debate, but the an swer Sas been made by the defenders of the high tariff schedules that American industries needed the protection against the flood of foreign goods and that if American factories and business were hurt the purchasing power of the Ameri can people would be adversely affected through unemployment. Wonder Any I!ill Is Passed. No one ever gets very far attempting to analyze tariff schedules with the men who make them. A million and one rea sons enter into every compromise and the wonder of it all is that the tariff bill is ever passed, so diversified are the inter ests of every section 'as represented by i?t'i members of the house and OG mem bers of the senate. But the wrangling is in its last stages. The all-important conference committee of the two houses will be in session next week to iron out the disagreements be tween the senate and the house. More compromises must be made. ' Yet, good or bad, the encouraging thing is that congress is getting rid of the tariff problem and the remaining days of the present session and the short session be ginning in December can be devoted to the pending- bills relating to the mer chant marine, the soldier-bonus and the appropriation bills for" ' the next year, which will be scanned with more than perfunctory interest because of the pos sible loopholes that might be furnished for reduced taxation as Mr. Harding has promised that he will recommend a re vision of the revenue act just as soon as practicable. ARREST C. G. BROWN FOR EMBEZZLEMENT $10,000 TO STUDY COAL SITUATION State Budget Committee Approves E.x--penditure for Coal and $1,000 for ' Railroad Consolidation. MOXTl'ELIEIi, Aug. 10. The state budget committee considered the coal tdt uution and the railroad consolidation project yesterday morning, and approved the expenditure of not to exceed $10,000 ii the first case and not over $1,000 in the 'second. The distribution of coal was found to be 'a matter of such importance as to constitute an emergency which should be met. The amount approved is to be placed at th disposal of the governor and to be expended through state Fuel Administrator 11. J. M. Jones. The consolidation of railroads by the in terstate commerce commission might affect Vermont, it was found, in its rela f'on to the other New England states. The governor's appointment of members of the foreign and domestic commerce commission as a Vermont commission on the railroad situation was considered, and it was found that an emergency ex isted such as to justify the budget com mittee in approving the expenditure of Sl.OfWl for expenses, such as travel, the gathering of data, and stenographic serv ice. The members of the budget commit tee and board of control present were Messrs. Dyer. Weeks, Barber, Williams, Stevens and Clates, with Governor Hart ness. Messrs Dunham and Scott were absent.

Pinkiam's Vegetable Com- ponnd Often Does That. Read Mrs. Miners Testimony Churubusco, N. Y. "I was under the doctor's care for over five years for backache and had no relief from his medi cine. One day a neighbor told me about your Vegeta-, ble Compound and I took it. It helped mo so much that 1 wish to advise all women to try Lydia E. Fink ham s Vegetable Compound for fe male troubles and backache. It is a great help in carrying a child, as I have noticed a difference when I didn't take it. I thank you for this medicine and if I ever come to this point again I do not want to be without the Vegetable Com pound. I give you permission to publish this letter so that all women can take mv advice." Mrs. Fred Miner, Box 102, Churubusco, N. Y. It's . the same story over again. Women suffer from ailments for years. They try doctors and different medi cines, but feel no better. Finally they take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and you can see its value in the case of Mrs. Miner. That's the truth of the matter. If you are suffering from any of the troubles women have, you ought to try this med icine. It can be taken in safety by young or old, aa it contains no harmful drugs.
