Cuticura Ointment is one of the most
successful remedies for torturing, dis

including loss of hair, of infants, children
and adults, ever compounded, in proof
of which a single anointing with it, pre
ceded by a hot bath witli Cuticura

Cuticura Pills, is often sufficient to afford
immediate relief in the most distressing
forms of itching, burning and scaly

to a speedy cure when nil else fails.

"ProtirpssM e Republicans"
Washington. May 25. Had It not been
for the attltud.i of the "Progressive re
publicans," who fjvor the adoption of an
Income tax amendment tn the tariff hill,
It Is probable that Senator Bailey might
have reached an agreement to-day with
members of the llnanre committee for i
vote on this amendment nn June If.
Offense was taken by some of the so
called Insurgent republicans hecause of
the nonce served by the Texws senator
yeslerdav that no general agnemenis
could be obtained nn any phase nf the
tariff hill so long as Senator .Ullrich re
fused permission for the fixing of a time
for a vole on Senator Baile's Income tn
It was made clear at Informal cnnfpr
dices to-day that the tcpubllcans who are
supporting ttio Cummins ampndment de
sire tlie continuance of the coalltmn with
the democrats, bi.t that thev did not want
it at the expense of surrendering the con
trol of the Income tax tight to the demo
crats. Scnntor Cummins cnnveed this
view to Senator Ralley.
Before (his action was taken, however,
a conference was held by the republican
members of the finance committee te
luting to fixing a time mr a vote on the
Income tax question nnd all other amend
ments to the tariff bill. In the opinion of
the members of the committee the worV
on schedules will be completed hy Junt
10, and thev could see no reason, there
fore for resisting the fixing the time nf a
vnte on the Bailey amendment beyond
Senator Cummins ntel to-night that
he would offer his Income tnx amend
ment Just as soon as consideration of
schedules had been concluded. He will
revise his amendment to meet the
wishes of a number of republicans.
It will provide for a flat rate nf 2
per cent, nn Incomes. Iric'ndlng cor
porations. A drawhrck will be al
lowed to ItidlvleVual stockholders of
corporations equal lo the sum paid
on their stock hy the corporation It
self when It ran be shown bv the In
dividual that the tiWal of his Income
Is less than $5,')0i1 a year. The Ralley
amendment provides for a lax of 3
per cent. Mr Cummins said that If
the Bailey amendment is presented
first that he will vole for It, although
he does not believe that it would
prove as satisfactory as his own, lie
estimated that his amendment will
proilucp about $4(1.000,000 a year In
.Members of the tin nee committee
are confident that they have sufficient
votes to refer either the Cummins or
the Ralley amendment or both to the
WORKING FOR A VOTE.

ment among an overwhelming major

low tariff republicans, to bring the
debate to an end within a reasonable
perl'iil Afler the ennvass Is matin the
recnleitrant senators will bo urged bv
those frlendl) with them not lo jiut
anj more oljstao'es In me vvav of an
enrly enactment of the tariff law.
Some of thu sentiment In favor of
voting on the tariff bill nt tin enrly
iriatc Is clue to the growing unde
ttandinn that tho Senate conferees
will make Important concession to
the House conferees in the line of
downward revision when the measures
goes to conference. It Is being as
serted by republican senators that the
bill will he much more satisfactory to
the downward revisionists when It
emergen from the conference, commit
tee and that It will show that there
has heen an honest effort to cut rates
In the way the count.":' desires.
