GUI DUTIES
TAFTS DESIRE FOR DOWNWARD
REVISION MAY YET PRO
DUCE RESULTS.
NELSON TO VOTE AGAINST BILL
Probable That McCumber's Efforts
Will Be For Naught.—Members of
House Are Called to Washing
ton for Final Action.
Washington, July 7.—The last stage
of the tariff bill in its first passage
through the senate was reached early
yesterday afternoon, when the bill
passed from the committee of the
whole to the senate. The adjourn
ment was taken until the bill with all
Its amendments could be printed, and
the consideration of the measure In
the senate proper will begin this
morning. It is admitted by all that
the final disposition of the bill and
its amendments will take but one or
two days in the senate, and the bill
will go to conference before the end
of the week.
Seenator Clapp stated today that he
would not vote for the bill when it is
called up for passage this week. He
said that he could not support the
measure as It now stands.
"Many duties have been kept up,
others have been raised and reduc
tions that seemed important have not
been made," said Senator Clapp.
"The corporation tax has been
adopted In a form that I cannot ap
prove, and the maximum and mini
mum provision as agreed to, auto
matically raises all duties 25 per cent
after next March. I will feel com
pelled to vote against the bill in its
present form."
What other senators will follow this
course cannot be definitely ascertain
ed at present. Senator Nelson stated
yesterday that he was not prepared
to say what course he would follow
Benator Cummins likewise would
make no statement as to whether or
not he will support the bill. Senator
LaFollette is expected to vote against
it, although he would not Indicate yes
terday the position he Intends to take.
Some Work Remains.
Whether Senator Clapp or other
western senators will vote against the
bill in its final passage of the senate
before going to the president will de
pend upon the remodeling of the bill
that takes place in the conference
committee. There is still some work
to be done in the senate this week,
when various amendments will be
presented as the bill is given Its last
reading. These Include further
amendments of the sugar schedule,
the tobacco section, the corporation
tax and other portions.
Senator Clapp will probably again
introduco his amendment to strike out
of the corporation tax the clause
which exempts from the payment of
the tax earnings of corporations de
rived from the Income of stocks of
other corporations held by them.
The amendment will not be adopted,
however, as the senate has determined
to take the corporation tax as it now
stands.
The two Minnesota senators do not
entertain the same view as to the
operation of the maximum and mini
mum sections against Canada. Sen
ator Nolaon believes the maximum
penalty will apply principally to
France and Germany and possibly to
Belgium. Senator Clapp is confident
that the provisions of Canada's tariff
law and the discriminatory practices
existing against the United States
will Berve to put the 25 per cent pen
alty into operation against that coun
try.
Taft's Hand Is Seen.
One thing has been made certain,
however, namely that President Taft
has permitted no doubt to exist as to
his determination to demand a genu
ine revision in important particulars
of the bill. The conferees of the two
houses arc fully aware of this and
there Is every reason to believe that
they have been acting upon it, have
been informally agreeing upon reduc
tions and changes which can be made
and that when the actual considera
tion of the bill in conference begins,
many important schedules will be
agreed to with little or no debate.
The influence of the president has
been such as to convince many of the
western "progressive senators that
genuine and Important reductions in
the conference committee are assured.
The action of the conferees may
therefore be more speedy than past
developments have Indicated. On the
drawback, maximum and minimum
and other administration features of
tne bill there is likely to be more seri
ous difference than on many of the
schedules of actual tariff duties.
The call has been sent out for all
members of the house to return to
Washington In preparation for flnal
action on the bill. Those who have
returned this week, including con
gressmen from Iowa and Wisconsin,
report general dissatisfaction with
tue tariff bill as It now stands. They
express doubt also of the possibility
of so amending and changing the bill
in conference that it will bs satlsfac
lory to tlie public.
The proceedings in the senate
jogged along in uneventful fashion
yesterday. Among amendments to
the tariff agreed to was one exempt
ing labor organizations, fraternal
bencflclary societies and organization*
exclusively for charitable and educa
tional purposes from the operations of
the corporation tax provisions.
Amendments were adopted specify
ing Canada and the West Indies
among contiguous countries included
In the discriminating duty of 10 per
cent ad valorem on Imports not man
ufactured in those countries and in
troduced Into the United States, and
also extending from two to six
months in any one year the period
during which domestic built foreign
vessels may engage in the coastwise
trade. Another amendment relieves
the United States from all reciprocal
.. obligations toward foreign nations in

FOURTH CASUALTIES GROW.
Chicago, 111., July 7.—Sixty-one
dead and 3,426 injured are the
returns to date from the Fourth
of July celebration of 1909. These
figures compare with seventy-two
dead and 2,736 injured reported
up to the same hour of the sec
ond day after the celebration a
year ago.
This year's enumeration covers
25 per cent more towns than were
reported the first few days after
last year's "Fourth" and is the
most complete second day enum
eration made since the Tribune
began gathering statistics of In
dependence Day casualties. For
this reason it is believed the fig
ures represent a larger portion
of the flnal figures than in previ
ous years and that the figures
which come later by mail will
show a reduction in casualties as
compared with previous years.
Tetanus already has claimed
nearly a score of victims among
the celebrants who were injured
In premature celebrations. The
toy pistol, which is responsible for
a majority of the deaths from te
tanus this year, claimed S80 vic
tims reported up to Tuesday mid
night, as compared with 223 last
year and the high record of 428
made in 1902.
the matter of tonnage dues.
Senator Curtis gave notice of an
amendment he will propose to the bill
providing for countervailing duty on
oil Imported Into the United States
from countries which impose a duty
on American oil. The proposed duty
is to be one half of the duty Imposed
by the other country on American oil.
The adjournment was taken with
the understanding that when the sen
ate reconvenes all sections of the bill
that senators do not desire to reserve
for further amendment shall be
agreed to en bloc.
The senate then will consider the
tobacco tax, the only amendment not
adopted In the committee of the
whole. When that is disposed of sen
ators will offer and votes will be
taken on numerous amendments they
have reserved to be acted upon when
the bill, in a parliamentary sense,
shall be in the senate.

HIND HELD
FAMILY OF THREE AND LAD FROM
ABERDEEN ARE KILLED IN
THEIR TRACKS.
BELIEVE MOTIVE WAS ROBBERY
Father of One of the Victims Discov*
ers the Bodies When He Goes to
Visit His Boy, and Reports
Gruesome Tragedy.
Aberdeen, S. D., July 6.—An entire
family of three and a lad from Aber
deen were murdered at a farm home
in the town of Rudolph, ten miles
south of here. The dead:
J. W. Christy, aged 56, grain buyer,
shot while milking and then his skull
crushed with a hammer.
Mrs. Christy, his wife, aged 60, shot
after she ran out upon the porch of
the house at the sound of the other
shooting, bullet entering her breast
from a gun held against her body.
Mildred Christy, aged 18, attacked
as she came from her bedroom. Her
night-dress was torn from her and she
was shot in the head and thrown back
upon her bed.
Michael Roanaye, aged 14, was shot
in the barn beside Mr. Christy and
his skull was crushed with a hammer.
Robbery was evidently the motive.
Mr. Christy was a grain buyer for the
Van Dusen Elevator company of Min
neapolis and at times had as much as
•1,000 In the house. The murderer
ransacked the house, but is not
known to have gained anything.
It Is supposed that the murderer
sneaked upon the farm from a border
ing wheat field, intending to rob
Christy, but when he found the boy
present he had to kill him to hide his
guilt and then, the men out of the
way, he made his attack on the house.
Victims People of Culture.
In the house he reloaded his revol
ver, dropping the shells of a 41 caliber
gun on the floor and leaving the ham
mer in the barn. These are the only
clues.
Christy had no known enemies and
has lived here for many years. The
family was highly regarded and were
people of culture. Sheriff Anderson
has armed men patroling the country.
Emil Victor was arrested in North
ville, 20 miles south of the scene of
the murder and brought to Aberdeen.
He worked In Rudolph from October
till a week ago, when he quit. He
had printed in the Aberdeen American
a story telling of a proposed trip to
see his father, proprietor of a large
department store In Buffalo. He had
often boasted to fellow workmen of
how easy It would be to rob Christy.
He had a watch, knives and ladles'
pins and $13 in small bills which were
partially identified as the Christy fam
ily's.
At the inquesi over the bodies the
jury returned a verdict finding cause
to believe that Victor, who is now in
the county jail, is implicated in the
affair, though the verdict does not di
rectly accuse him with the murder.
A number of witnesses were exam
ined, the testimony of John T. Ron
ayne, the father of the murdered boy,
being most affecting. He told of
driving from Aberdeen to the Christy
place and the finding of the bodies.
The evidence against Victor, though
circumstantial, is quite strong. He
had upon his person when arrested at
Northville a largo amount of women's
jewelry and a gold watch which is
believed to have belonged to Christy,
lie protests his innocence and says*
he can prove he was at Conde, S. D.,
when the murders wr.re committed.

This Pcrcheron .Stallion is now two

insure a strong, living colt. Ho will be
found at home every day except Satur
