A General Revision Bill Approved by
President Wilson Nearly Ready
for Congress.
Washington, D. C. The Democratic
Tariff Revision bill is finished, with
the xceptlon of a final decision upon
the sugar tariff. From beginning to
end It is a' measure modeled in ac
cord with the ideas of President Wil
son, with wool, meats and many other
rood stuffs and clothing materials on
the free list; with low duties upon
all agricultural products and food
stuffs that are not free; and with the
tariff on chemical, steel and other
oommorcial products cut far below
the present .protective rates.
The senate tariff leaders asked for
an opportunity to study the bill. They
will then confer with Oscar W. Un
derwojd, chairman of the house com
mittee on ways and means, and later
will have a final conference with
President Wilson. A careful analysis
of the senate will be made In the
meantime, to determine whether free
wool, "one cent sugar" and low rates
on "market basket" products will
prove acceptable to a majority of tho
Briefly summarized, the tariff devel
opments were:
President Wilson's ultimatum to
sugar Interests, that they must agree
to a tariff of one cent per pound for
three years, with free sugar after that
time, or he would attempt to secure
free sugar at once.
The completion of the bill by the
ways and means committee with the
exception of the sugar schedule.
On this, the committee is prepared
to agree on free sugar if the Presi
dent insists. Income tax rates fixed
at 1 per cent for all corporation In
comes above $5,000; 1 per cent on
personal incomes from $4,000 to $20,
000 ; 2 per cent from $20,000 to $50,
000; 3 per cent from $50,000 to $100,
000; 4 per cent above $100,000.
The President submitted his propo
sal on the sugar tariff to Representa
tive Broussard of Louisiana early In
the day. Louisiana senators and rep
resentatives conferred throughout the
day, and sounded out other members
of the senate, to determine whether
enough strength could be secured to
fight the free sugar features of the
plan. They had reached no decision
at this time, however, as to the course
they would take.
