mado yesterday by tho Democratic
senators aro in the income tax and
sugar schedule. The sugar men havo
beou from the flrst clamorous for an
ad valorem inBtoad of a Bpeclllc duty,
und that chango has been conceded
Tho details havo not been absolutely
fixed, but thero is little doubt that tho
sugar schedulo will bo entirely sup
planted by a new one, which will pro
vIijo a uniform duty of 40 per cent ad
valorem, Vflth an addition of 4 of a
cent for reflnod sugar Tho principal
chango in tho incomo tax Is a pro
vision for tho limitation of tho tlmo
that tho law shall remain in operation
'1 his is another matter of detail which
has not been absolutely agreed upon,
but tho principlo hav Ing been conceded
tho senators who have tho compromise
in htnd do not consider thero is any
posslbllty of failure on account of tho
porlod. It will probably bo about
ilvo or six years Thoro has boon no
chango In the rato of taxation, which
will bo loft at 2 por cent on amounts
In excess uf $4000 A numbei of
changes In tho rato of duty will bo
mado in tho Iron schedule, in which
there will bo a slight advanco over
tho rates fixed by tho pending bill
Carpets also secure an advance In

and tho financo committee, whilo still
retaining their confldonco in tho fair
ness of ad valorom methods has yield

A CompromtfS Hide.
Washingtov, April 2 Thero is a
rumor, very posslblj a correct ono, !
that tho concession has been mado to
thoso senators opposing tho Incomo
tax by a limitation of tho time for
which it shall bo levied In other
words that this tix Is to bo lovled
from fivo to oight years In tho sen
ato jesterday Jdovoloped that the
Incomo taj? Unoy.to belevled ,on
building associations whero such as
soolatlon aro co operative and intend
ed to build homes for tho membors of
tho association It is also dovoloped
that tho financo committoo havo about
thlrty-nlno amendments to bo oTored
to tlio bill, but it aid not
develop whether or not thoy
wore of such character as would
change items materlallj or wore in
tho lino of porfoctlng tho bill in tho
matter of its administration lhat
thero aro to bo somo material changes
Is apparent but tho Democrats stoutly
insist that tho reduction contemplated
by the present bill will not bo inter
fered with by amendments
