of Free Wool
Want Democrats to In
crease Duty 15 Per Cent.
ASHINGTOX, D. C, April 16.
Fifteen percent advance in
the duty on raw wool" was the
slogan of the organized opposition to
the administration free wool bill when
the Democratic caucus today resumed
consideration of the new tariff bill.
With the southern and New England
Democrats still fighting the cotton
rates proposed, the anti free wool
members planned their attack on the
Income 'Tax Complaints.
Representative Cordell Hull, of Ten
nessee, author of the income tax bill
law. declared that complaints of life
insurance companies against the pro
vision of the law as affecting them
"were groundless. One contention of
the companies is that dividends, whicn
would be taxed under the law. de
clared by mutual and narticinatin-
are not dividends in the
AfimMAr t K.n... t . l- . ... .. .a w i.
i .-.,.. oio; w. uiv num uui are
j simply refunds of a portion of an
over charge collected with the annual
premium, held in trust and at stated
( periods, returned to the policy hold-
j '-
The ways and means committee con
tends an exhaustive investigation of
books of insurance companies shows
that in many cases the earnings of
companies frdm previous investment
nu uuiuings are peariy as large as
the amounts which are annually dia-
iriouted as dividends, and that it does
not appear that a separation of
sources of Income is made for the
purchaser by ascertaining the funds
available for dividends.
In Position to Dcelare Dividends.
The committee holds that a policy
holder is not promised a refund but
a participation in the surplus of
profits, and the plea that the dividend
is a fund of a portion of the premium
rather than a distribution of the actual
jmrnln; nf the pnmnanr ilarivoH fr-.iro
all sources is not consistent On that '
basis, it" is held, the insurance com
panies are in a position to declare div
idends which will conform to the com
mercial definition of dividends.
Chairman Underwood declared today
that no protests against provisions
of the tariff bill from foreign govern
ments had been forwarded to the com
mittee. He has heard indirectly that
such protests had been filed in the
state department

Representations bearim? upon the !
tariff legislation, from a half dozen
ambassadors and ministers in Wash- j state and territorial printing in Ald
ington were transmitted to the house zona. That is the figure the adminis

at sections known as the administra
tive part of the tariff bill. Some diplo
mats have not hesitated to declare
themselves more concerned about the
administrative features of the tariff
than in any other proposed changes in
the actual rates of duty.
The Brazilian ambassador, who called
on secretary" Bryan about another mat
ter, referred to some of the tariff ques
tions, and it is said, also discussed
briefly the differential duty on Ameri
can flour imported into Brazil.
Probe Suffrage Parade.
The senate's investigation or alleged
police negligence in the suffrage pa
rade was resumed when members of
the District of Columbia police force
were again called as witnesses. Senator
Jones. Pomerene and Dillingham, con
stituting the subcommittee, expect the
investigation will be finished soon.
Senators Object to High Cost.
Eating, smoking and personU trans
portation problems gave the senate
committee on rules a busy time at its
first session under the new Demo
cratic administration of the senate.
The committee finally determined upon
three projects important to the per
sonal comfort of senators:
A committee to investigate the sen
ate restaurant in the hope that cost
of living may be reduced.
The defeat of senator Tillman s reso
lution to prohibit smoking in executive
sessions of the senate.
The removal of the new monorail
system in the senate subway because
of its noise.
The monorail system installed at a
cost of 19,000 to convey senators be
tween the capitol and their office
building was attacked recently by sen
ator Stone in a resolution. It is claimed
the railway, which recently succeeded
an automobile service, makes so much
noise that conversation is impossible.
QHestlim Removal of Republicans.
Republican senators have determined
to hold up and demand explanation of
the proposed removal of Republican
officials from the government, as it
appears that a change may have been
decided upon by the administration
"for political reason."
The 28 Republican senators infor
mally agreed to question appointments
only when it might appear that a com
petent official had been removed and
a new appointee named to serve po
litical ends.
The appointments thus far by presi
dent Wilson, it is understood, do not
fall within the class that might meet
opposition from Republican sources.
The president's announced purpose to
keep many competent officials and
practically all postmasters in office
until their terms expire, is expected
to give little occasion for the Repub
lican senators to oppose anpointments.
Chas. K. Crane Visit AVIIsoh.
Chas. R. Crane, of Chicago, -who is
known to be foremost among those
whom president Wilson has had under
consideration for appointment as am
bassador to Russia, was a -white house
caller today and the executive offices
were silent about the subject of his
Secretary Bryan, however, who -was
a caller about the same time, -was
asked about the incumbency of the
present ambassador. Curtis Guild, and
said that Mr. Guild had been granted a
two months' leave of absence on ac
count of his health.
' Those .miliar with procedure in the
diplomatic service thought It unlikely
that Mr Guild would tie a two months
leave if he were soon to be supplanted,
and also recalled that Mr. Crane, on a
former occasion, had let it be known
that his business would not permit of
his absence from the United States at

Fixes Maximum at 40 Cents
After an Exciting Debate
In the Senate.
HOENIX. Ariz.. April IS No more
state printing for Arizona news
papers at 50 cents an inch. They
must do the state's printing for 40
cents an inch or less.
This is assuming that the house will
approve an amendment to the public
printing code, senate bill .n.-which the
senate adopted yesterday in committee
of the whole, after the first really
wa"n debate of the present session.
-1 iie reaaing clerk had reached tnat
section of the code providing that no
more than 75 cents an inch should be
paid for state printing, which includes
the publication of the minutes of the
board of control, proceedings of the
board of equalization, proclamations by
the governor and advertisements for
bids. c. B. Wood offered an amend
ment changing the 75 cents to 25.
Wood Mnrt Controwi-.
In support of his amendment Wood
declared that the same paper now do
ing the state printing is doing the
printing of Maricopa county for 14
This started Breen. who owns a
newspaper in Flagstaff; Hughes, who
owns an interest in a Tucson paper;
and Davis, proprietor of the Phoenix
printery that does all the printing for
me legislature. Hughes declared that
(.the senators were forgetting the favors
me newspapers did them in campaign
time, when the candidates "smiled
sweetly upon the newspapermen anil
asked them to write their biographies."
Wood retorted that the biographies
were paid for at rates as high as a
dollar an inch.
Davis praised the newspapers as
business institutions and declared that
the competition between them is legiti
mate. He denied an assertion of Sims
that the newspapers of a town com
bine and submit the same figures on
city or county printing- when bids are
called for.
Wood's amendment was lost by a
vote of nine to ten. as follows:
Ayes Chase. Iovin, Pace. Roberts.
Sims. Wessel, C B. Wood. H. R. Wood.
Noes Breen. Brown. Davis. Harrison,
Hechtman. Hubbell. Hughes. Kinney,
wiiiis, air. rresioent.
In explaining his vote president
CunnifiT remarked that he had once been
a newspaperman himself.
Mailmum Placed at -10 Cent.
Lovin moved that the 75 cent maxi
mum be reduced to 40 cents. Hia
I amendment was carried 12 to 7. as fol

B. Wood. H. R. Wood, Worsley. Mr.

Since time immemorial 50 cents an
nch has been the established price for
ment eliminated, but as the house is
anti-Hunt and there is not one man in
that body who is even interested in a
paper, this is not likely.
ExpOMltlon Appropriation.
For the Panama International expo
sition at San Francisco, $55,000 for the
Panama-California exposition at San
Dieso. $50,000.
These appropriations made by senate
bill No. 28, introduced yesterday by
Wessell. of Yuma. The bill was im
mediately referred to the appropria
tions committee.
A bill providing an appropriation
of $105,000 for the San Francisco fair
passed tne nouse at the last session
b'lt one by Kerr, making an appro
priation for San Diego, was voted down
there. The San Francisco bill was
not acted on in the senate.
There .is a general belief that no
appropriation will be made for one
of the fairs without an appropriation
for the other.
First Land Legtnlntion.
The first land legislation of this
session made its appearance in the
senate yesterday. It seems likely that
the senators will have as hard a time
agreeing over the proper disposition
of the state's lands as they had last
session, when they spent days in de
bating upon that subject
Pace introduced a bill to provide for
the payment - of the salaries and ex
penses of the present commissioners.
It is senate bill No. 36, and was re
ferred to the appropriations committee.
The old appropriation for the commis
sion ran out March 13.
Davis Is the author of bill No. 5S.
which provides for the further occu
pancy of school lands by the present
lessees. It Is designed to protect what
Davis and other senators believe to
be legal and constitutional rights or
the lessees. It is much like the old
senate bill No. 76.
Davis also introduced No. 39. pro-

Law Enacted in California
Has Been Enforced for
Decade by Government.
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 16.
The alien land holding bill
as passed by the lower house
of the California legislature, in its
amended form, is regarded by the of
ficials here as much more difficult
than the original for the Japanese
government to oppose successfully. It
is cited that the bill now closely fol
lows the lines of the alien ownership
act for -which the past decade has
been strictly enforced in the District
of Columbia and the territories of the
United States without objection from
any foreign government
Japan May Change Our Lair.
To lodge an objection to the meas
ure based on strict equity, probably
it wouhi be necessary for the Japan
ese government, by decree to extend
to Americans, resident in Japan, the
right to acquire property in fee sim
ple, a privilege which, though intended
to be conferred by treaty, so far has
been withheld in general application.

LcglMlatloa I Designed Primarily To
Prevent Japanene From Acquiring-
Land Within the State.
Sacramento. Calif., April 16 An anti
alien land ownership bill, designed
primarily to prevent Japanese from
acquiring title to real property within
the state, but so worded as to prohibit
any alien from owning land more than
one year except upon a declaration of
his intention to become a citizen, was
passed by the lower house of the
j legislature by a vote of 60 to 15. After
inu uvurs iiu uwa spent in aeoacing
proposed amendments, the bill went to
a roll call without a word of argument
The measure was drafted by a sub
committee of the judiciary committee
as a substitute for bills previously in
troduced. aU of which specifically pro
Tided that "aliens, ineligible to citizen
ship should not hold lands." The com
mittee, however, proceeded on the
theory that such a statute might be in
violation of the treaty rights of Japan
ese subjects and-broadened the measure
to include all aliens who had not de
clared their intention of becoming citi
zens. In order not to embarass foreign cor
porations, the committee did not make
the corporation clause of the bill, sec

departments to secure the removal of
the Mexican prisoners.

to use force to separate the combatants.
Xaco people fear an attempt by friends
to liberate the prisoners or a break for
liberty on their part.
It is understood that the army officers
have asked for instructjoae from the
war department as to what will be done
