PAOE SEES l'RESIDEINT. Vcrniont Senator Conducts Xegotia tlons Between Taft and the Leath er Trade. Boston, Aug. 3. A tempest ln a teapot, a wave of hysteria, an out burst of fanatlclsm whatever it may be called, swept through the Senate yesterday mornlng, and for a tlme threatened tho fate of the Payne tariff blll, says a Washing ton dispatch to the Transcrlpt. The rumpus was caused by the dlscov ery that the reductlon to ten per cent of the boot and shoe dutlc-3 applles only to such boots and shoes as are made from tho hldes of cat tle, whlch aro made free in tho blll. Thls alleged"Joker"has glven the Sen ate its most nervous day since.some weeks ago it was learned that thero were vote3 enough to pass the 5u como tax. Tho polnt of the alleged "joker," as lt was explalned by its dlscoverers, was that "the people" and the Senate had understood that tho duty on all boots and shoes was to be reduced to ten per cent; and the rango sonators, headed by War ren, were very angry as they e.c plalned to thelr colloagues tho In lqulty of tho trlck that had been worked upon Congres3 and the peo ple by the sh'oe manufacturers of Now England. Tho excltoment was due to a pop ular mlsundorstaudlng, partly real and nartly manufactured, of the In tent of tho reductlons made in the shoo and leather schedulo. Senator Carroll S.

Desplte a sllght laineness, caused by rheumatism, Mr. Cummln3 was able to be everywhere about the house, seelng to the comfort of hls guests and he carrles hls age wlth vlgor and sprightness. In fact, one would not flx 80 years upon Ws shoulders as far as appearances go. Mr. Cummins was born ln Mont pelier, August 3, 1829, the son oe Oren and Betsey Wheeler Cum mins. His grandfather, Isaac Cum mins came to Amerlca in 1630 and his family were noted for longev lty, hls father attalnlng the ripo age of 83 years before hls death, hls grandfather reachlng 92 and hls great grandfather llved to see his 97th blrthday.

At IS years, he began teachlng dts penslng knowledge to the younger generation for many terms, teach lng both ln thls sectlon and ln MIl 'bury, Mass. In 1867, tho charms of Vermont drew hlm hack to thls locallty and he has slnce resided here, purchas ing the spaclous home ln whlch he now llves on Collego street. His business career, locally, has been connected wlth prosperou3 en torprises, the most Important of whlch was the tannery business conducted ln company wlth Nelson A.. and R. K. Peck under the flrm narae of Peck and Cummins. On the North branch locatlon, was carrled on for many years a most thrlvlng business and from 15 to 30 men were employed. When the business was organlzed, thero were nearly a dozen small tanneries located wlth lu a radlus of a few mlles of them. When they closod shop, there were but two other companles. One of hls most Important tasks has been tho compllatlon of the Cummins family treo, a work whlcn h has tolled over for more than flvo year3 and whlch Is now com pleted, tracing hls family from the present day back to the founder of the 'branch ln Amerlca.
