Kept. 2 Conferees reach final adjustment. After being; under consideration in congress for nearly six months the new tariff bill Is a law. and for the first time in nearly a quarter of a cen tury tbe country has a tariff law orig inated by tbe Democratic party. The Mil will doubtless be known lis the Vnderwood Simmons bill, taking the title from Chairman Underwood of the vi aud means committee of the house and Chairman Hmmotis of tbe Ctianre committee of the senate. The sponsors for the bill say that it will raise ample revenue. Chairman Simmons has been advised thnt it will yield a surplus of at least flC.fHKUXm a year above current expenses. If it does not meet the expenses of running the government the expenses will be re J need. One remarkable thing about thepres- by striking out a duty of 10 cents a bushel provided hy the nous? bill. The house won a victory In the duty on lemons and other citrus fruit when the conference committee restored the J classification based on the cubic feet of the containers in which such prod ". j nets are Imported, which result in a J i slight decrease of the duty. ! Tbe senate also lot in the struggle I i over a proposed duty on bananas when j j the conference committee struck out tbe senate rate and restored bananas to tbe free list of the house bill. Wnnlen Schedule. ! I T. .... ttee ih Very few changes were made in the! M)ik ,1.. woolen schedule. The senate was sus- Beans, per bu.... j tallied by the conference committee iu I lta amendments fixing the dates when I wool duties shall go into effect. Com i promises were made by the conference ! committee between senate and house rates, by which wool tops will bear a duty of 10 per cent and yarns a duty of IS per cent. The senate sought to reduce the duty on woolen blnnkets and to free list blankets valued at not more than 40 rents a pound, but tbe conference com mittee rejected the amendment, and all blankets will bear duty at 2f per cent ad valorem. The house rates of iy per cent ad valorem on carpets and rugs were adopted by the cor.ference. A compromise was reached on the paragraphs relating to angora goat hair, alpaca, by which tbe hair will pay a duty of 15 per cent; tops from sucb hair. 25 per cent, and plushes, velr vet and other fabrics, 45 per cent Rhine!, per thousand 50c Free Chair cane or reeds 10 p c 10 p c House or cabinet furniture of wood 35 p c 15 P c Laths, per thousand 20c Free Skewers, per thousand 40c lOo Toothpicks, per thousand Ifind 1$ p c Jf P e Railroad ties .'. : 10 p c ! p c Telegraph poles 10 p e la p o Sugar.

There was a compromise on the paragraph relating to furs, but general ly the house rates were restored. Tbe senate rates prevailed as to lace ; curtains and laces and the house won by having restored the paragraph In the house bill covering chamois skins and glor leathers, by which the for mer were made dutiable at 15 per cent, and the latter at 10 per cent There was a compromise on the glove sched ule between senate and bouse rates and the senate's action In free listing harness, saddles and saddlery parts ent tariff bill, a precedent, in fact Is """ ' coin that the senate cnt the average rate mittee. although the house bill had of duty carried bv the bill below that i WZTJ lu7" '"" rent iae oniy suDstanuai victory won ny fixed by the house. Heretofore In the making of a tariff hill the house has slashed the rates, while tbe senate has then taken op the bill and readjusted the rates on a higher general average. The house hill carried a general av erage rate slightly below 30 per cent. This the aennt cnt a little over 4 per rent. The conference committee has . ,, nut i the house in tbe free list was as to free art. Here are rates of the new tariff com pared with tbe Payne Aldrich law: I LUXURIES. raised the general average duty slightly. The average ad valorem duty carried by the bill as perfected is about 27 per cent. The average under the present law Is abont 35 per cent Many Changes Considered. The conference committee had to deal with BTfl paragraphs on which there were disagreements. Some of these Involved only the change of a word or a question of punctuation, but a majority of them represented dif ference tn rates and a few were fun damental. The house conferees also accepted the senate amendment fixing dates when the wool duties shall go Into ef fect, which was one of the final stum bling blocks. Hit wool will go on the free list on Fe. 1. and the reduced duties car r'.fd by tb present bill will become ef fective on Jan. 1. The honse bill pro posed to make tbe wool duties effective lmmediately on the bill being signed by the president. The final action was an important concession to the manu facturers. The senate won over the honse also on controverted paragraphs In the schedule relating to cotton cloths and yarns. By this agreement slighf'y higher duties are given to certain courser grades of cotton cloths and yarns by changing tbe classification.
