Washington. - The Payne-Aldrich Pi
tariff bill Is complete. sang
An agreeument on all disputed points I
was reached and the conferees' report
signed by the Republican conferees
It will go to the house and be voted
on by that body Saturday. The senate H
will on Monday begin consideration cent
of the measure as agreed to by the F
conferees. The senate session may F
consume all of next week. rem
Halted by the mandate of President re
Taft, the tariff conferees were corn- pric
ielled to turn back and revise their p
rates on lumber and gloves. L
When the conferees fixed lumber es
and glove rates by shading very C
slightly the higher rates on each, they cen
were so certain that the president C
would consent to the arrangement that
notices were sent to the Democratic
members of the conference cbmmittee ccc
to be present to approve or disapprove
of the conference report. to
The president had other ideas of
what the rates should be, and he ex- cer
pressed them very forcibly in a letter.
He said that lumber should not be cec
more than $1.25 per thousand feet for
rough with the differentials fixed by eel
the senate on finished lumber. He de
clared also that the senate ,rates on to
gloves, which are the same as the
Dingley rates, and much less than the
house rates, would have to be adopted dr,

Specified Hides on Free List. sq
The president also specified that loi
hides must go on the free list and the 30
house rates on boots and shoes and
other manufactures of leather must co
be reduced. Hosiery, too, he thought
should be reduced below the house pc
rates, which are advanced over the
Dingley duties. Pe
It was not until the Democratic
members had assembled that the to
White House communication was re
ceived at the conference chamber.
When Senator Aldrich read the presi- to
dent's message he called his Republi
can associates to an adjoining room.
The contents of the letter were dis
cussed and it was decided that the c4
minority should be informed that the
conference report had not been ad- P
vanced to a stage were it could be
submitted to them for their judgment.
After the Democrats reached the e
corridor outside the conference 3
chamber they held a little conference
of their own. Representative Champs
Clark of Missouri was called back to
the chamber. He was given a copy of
the bill as the conferees intend to re
port it, except for the schedules dis
cussed by the president in the letter.
The Democrats then went into session.
The minority members were in the
conference chamber less than an hour.
Representative Griggs said that if the
Republicans would consent to put cot
ton bagging on the free list his as
sociates would show great celerity- in
bringing the conference report to
a vote. Many of the conferees were
disposed to grant this request, but
Representative McCall of Mas
sachusetts protested vigorously on
the ground that it would injure the
manufacture of his state, which turn
out cotton bagging. So emphatic were
his objections that it was seen that an
agreement would be delayed if such
action were atempted.
All Seek a "Final Word."
The Republican members continued
in esslon after the Democrats left the
chamber. There followed one of the
busiest scenes witnessed about the
corridors of the senate office building
during the three weeks the bill has
been in conference. Surrying to and
from the chamber were senators and
members of the house, vying with re
presentatives of special Interests to
get a "tinal word" with the conferee.
Late in the day Representative
Fordney and Calderhead went to the
White House and from there to the of
fice of Speaker Cannon and then back
to the conference chamber. Later they
conferred with a number of North
western senators who were interested
in the lumber question. After their

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday,

was so that John saw him before the

arn Lake Charles.--The most sensation
s. al case of the jury term began last
week when Harrison Deane, a young
white man, was placed on trial on a
charge of murder, the man who lost I
his life being John Alston. The trag
per edy which resulted in the death of
Alston was enacted at Bon Ami, near
nts. De Ridder. Deane and his wife kept
the boarding house for the log crew
num, and bad blood arose between Deane
and Alston on account of the latter's
attentions to Mrs. Deane. Friends 1
of Deane claim that Alston repeatedly
'ruits made threats against the young man.
There were no witnesses to the trag
edy. Alston met his death from a
gunshot wound. Deane immediately
made his way to the nearest deputy
sheriff and surrendered.
