It Is understood that tho revision
of the lovy soctlons of tho 1918 tax
law is (practically complete. Th
houso ways and means committee
voted late Friday to increase from
$2,000 to $2G00 the exemption al
lowed married men having yearly In
comos of $."4)00 or less. This Is In
addition to the Increase of 200 In the
exemption for each dopendent mem
ber of tho family and would be re
troactive to Janpary 1, 1921.
Arrangements also were reached,
It was said, to decrease the manufac
turers' tax on candy from 5 to 3 per
cent, tho manufacturers' tax on furs
from 10 to 5 percent, the tax on art
works from 10 to 5 percent, and to
repeal all of the socalled luxury

In voting to repeal the luxury

to substitute if possible a manufac

designed to bo sold at sums In ex
cess of specified iprices. The rate
suggested was 3 per cent on the
manufacturers', prices and the return
.was estimated at $100,000,000 annually
as against $25,000,000 under lilie pres

that a provision of this nature would
be difficult to administer beca'usf
the prices of such goods were not
standardized and that It might be
necessary to abandon the plan.

A wireless message was sont to
day to Roy U. Jones, catcher, out
fielder and willow weildor, who is
way on a fishing trip in tho Khm
ischl mountains. In tho message,
Steinberger ordorod Jonea to report
to the club not later than August 13.
"Without Jones, our chances of
victory -would bo nil," said SStoinbor
gor. "He is a marvel on the paths
and his base running will be a b'g
factor in our offensive play."
The latest scandal In tho camp
ot tlbe local Rotarlans is that "But-
terfat" Hallowell Is a holdout. He
has demanded a substantial boost In
salary, but Steinberger is obstinate
and It is feared that the two will not
set together on the deal.
1 Steinberger returned today from
a mysterious trip and It is belioved
that he Was scouting for more ma
terial for his infield. In his absence,
Louie Hensloy, assistant manager,
put the Rotary squad through a stiff
workout last night. While he ap
peared, to, bo satisfied with the af
