HOUSE 221-100, PASSES BILL TO CUT WOOL DUTY. 24 Republicans Vote for Third Demo cratic Measure Hitting G. O. P. Principles. Washington, D. C, June 20. By 221 to 100, the House this afternoon dealt a terrific blow at the "citadel of protection," the woolen schedule. This.overwhelming majority recorded the passage of the Underwood bill re ducing, by 66 per cent, thetariff taxes on wool and woolen goods. Of the 228 Democrats in the House, 197 voted for the bill, and one voted against it. Of the 160 Republicans,. 100 voted nay and 24 voted aye. On the Democratic side 198 members were present and voting; and on the Republican side 124 members were present and voting. The wool bill is the first great measure presented by the Democratic majority of the House calculated to carry out their pledge to reduce the cost of necessities of life among the great body of the American people. It is the third measure on the tariff programme of the House leaders. The first was the Canadian reci procity pact, upon which the Demo crats recorded their approval of Pres ident Taft's plan of improving trade relations with Canada. The second was the farmers' free list, which is intended to compensate the farmers against such competition with Canadian products as may be caused by reciprocity. Vote Considered Remarkable. Upon the free list and upon the wool bill twenty-four Republicans in dorsed two essential features of the opposition party's programme of re adjusting taxation. Both votes are regarded as among the most remark able cast in the House throughout the entire history of American politics. The regular Republican leaders defenders of the Payne-AIdrich tariff law which passed both oouses in 1909 by large majorities now control little more than one-fourth of the House. Others using the Republican name either dodged the vote or open ly lined up with the Democrats. This lone Democrat who antagon ized his party was Francis of Ohio, who represents a wool district.

Jefferson City, Mo., June 20. Clyde Gow, former pastor of two churches in Lincoln County, Missouri, will have to serve four years in the Penitentiary for causing the death of Lizzie Gleason, a Lincoln County school teacher. About three weeks ago the court affirmed the sentence imposed by the trial court, and to-day it overruled a motion for rehearing. Gow had been keeping company with the teacher, svho died as the re sult of an operation. After conviction he was released on bond, but when ' the sentence of the trial court was -affirmed he was brought to the Pen itentiary. Owing to the fact that he is a clergy man he has been assigned to work in the chapel under the directions of the prison chaplain. Butler Christian Church. Sunday, June 25. Bible School, 9:30.
