•PRINGFIELD. - - - COLORADO SENATE CUTS SUGAR DUTIES MEASURE REDUCES NATION’S RE TAIL SUGAR BILL $20,000,000 PER YEAR. VOTE STOOD 52 TO 3 AFTER CONSIDERATION BY THE HOUSE, BILL GOES TO PRESIDENT. WeaUTn Ncwnpnpcr Union News Service. Washington.—A Republican sugar tariff hill, the first purely Republican revision measure of the present Con gress, has been adopted in the Senate. Deserting their allies of the last few days, the Republican Progressives, by an iron clad agreement with the regu lars, succeeded in passing a tariff re duction bill which they believe Presi dent Taft will sign. It is estimated that the sugar tariff reduction, if it becomes effective, will reduce the government's custom re ceipts about $5,500,000, while its sav ing in the retail sugar bill of the nation Is estimated at $20,000,000 per year. The sugar bill was a compromise be tween the Lodge plan endorsed by the regular Republicans, and the Bristow bill, behind which the Progressives lined up. It would cut the present sugar duty of $1.90 to $1.60; would aboliEh the Dutch standard, under which practically no refined sugar can be imported, and would abolish the IVt per cent, refiner’s differential, an additional duty on profit of the refin ers. The regular Republicans came down from the $1.82V4 duty of the Lodge bill, while the Progressives moved up ward from the $1.52% rate In the original Bristow bill. The compro mise is only 7 Ms cents above the low est figures named by the Progress ives. The Democratic free sugar bill passed by the House did not come to a vote in the Senate. The Bristow-Lodge amendment was first adopted in committee of the whole by vote of 37 to 25, Senators Thornton and Foster of Louisiana, Democrats, voting with the Republi cans. The Senate Democrats then offered their substitute for the House bill, pro posing a one-third reduction in the ex isting sugar tariff. This was defeated, 30 to 24, the Republican regulars and progressives holding to their agree ment. The Bristow-Lodge amendment finally passed the Senate with all but two Democrats voting for it. The final vote was 52 to 3, the negative vote3 being cast by Senators Heyburn, Re publican, and Foster and Thornton. Democrats. The attitude of the Senate Demo crats in finally supporting the Repub lican bill is expected to have influence with the Democrats of the House when the amended bill goes back there. An attempt to attach the Canadian reciprocity repeal amendment to the bill, made by Senator McCumber, was defeated, 31 to 24. This vote showed the purpose of the Republicans to pre vent any change in the sugar bill that might mean its defeat when it goes back to the House. The Senate bill would reduce the duty on Cuban sugar, which comes in under the reciprocity treaty at $1.31, to about $1.20 per hundred pounds The maximum reduction of duty on all refined sugar is throe-tenths of a cent a pound. The abolition of the Dutch standard, it is understood, will make possible more foreign competition in cheap sugars, which have been shut out because they did not meet the color test.
