FREE LIST BILL
ORIGINAL HOU8E MEASURE VOT
ED DOWN BY TIE
VERY SLIGHT CHANGE
A8 AMENDED BY SENATE BILL
PASSES BY VOTE OF
48 TO 30.
Wwtvm Newspaper Union News Service.
Washington.—The Senate by an
other remarkable coalition of Demo
crats and Republican insurgents
passed a farmers’ free list bill after
voting down the original House meas
ure so closely that one more Demo
cratic senator would have changed the
result and left the entire revision is
sue squarely before the President.
“The unholy alliance.” as the combi
nation of the Republican wing and th>
Democratic party has been called
swept aside a host of amendments, vot
ed down by a tie vote the original
House measure and then carried by a
surprising concentration of strength a
measure differing from the House bill
only in comparatively unimportant par
Now the bill goes back to the House
and Democratic Leader Underwood of
that body confidently asserted that it
•will be finally agreed to in confer
ence between the two houses and sent
to President Taft.
It is not certain that the House
will insist on a conference, for many
prominent Democratic representatives,
believing that the bill has not been ma
terially changed, are urging that the
House accept the Senate bill without
controversy and rush the first of the
tariff measures up to the President.
"I think the bill will go to Presi
dent Taft,” said Leader Underwood.
“I am not sure it will be sent to
conference; I certainly see nothing to
prevent the two houses from reaching'
an agreement upon its final form.”
Had Senator Bailey of Texas voted
with his Democratic associates, or
had Governor Hoke Smith of Georgia,
as the new senator-elect from that
state, been on hand and voted with his
party, the free list bill would have
passed the Senate unchanged, and
could have been in the hands of Presi
dent Taft now.
Mr. Bailey announced that he hoped
the privilege of casting the deciding
vote would fall to him in order to
show his opposition. Governor Smith
has insisted all along that he would
not leave Georgia at this time to as
sume his seat in the Senate.
The House free list bill was beaten
on a tie vote of 39 to 39, was then re
considered, changed by a compromise
amendment offered by Senator Kern
of Indiana, and passed as amended by
a vote of 48 to 30.
Originally the bill provided that
meat products, flour and cereal prod
ucts, from all countries should be ad
mitted free into the United States.
The Kern amendment provides that
this free admission shall apply only
to meats, flour and cereal products
“coming from any foreign country
with which the United States has a
reciprocal trade agreement and which
shall admit from the United States
free of duty cotton, corn, wheat, oats,
horses, cattle and hogs.”
It is admitted that this provision
applies only to Canada, after the new
reciprocity agreement shall have be

Austin, Tex. —The first step of the
special session of the Legislature to
ward stringent saloon regulation in

a quart law. The resolution was in

were practically featureless except for
an increase of about 125,000,000 in the
Peace Pact Is Ready.
Washington.—Mr. Taft is expected
to send the arbitration treaty between
the United States and Great Britain,
and probably the treaty with France,
to the Senate before the special ses
sion adjourned. Final arrangements
have been made for signing the treaty.
