After Four Months of Debate "ariff
Aot of 1922'' Gets Vote and Goes to
Conference. Ono Itepublien 'No,
Three Democrats, Aye.
.Washington, Aug. 19.-The admin
istration tariff bill, official "the tariff
act of 1922, was passed by a vote of
.18 to 25 late today by the sonate after
four months of debatec, It now goes
.Senator Boriah, of Idaho, was the
only republican to vote against the
'measure. 'Three democrats, Brous
sard, Kendrick and Ransdell, voted
Senators llarrison and 1) arene,
who were paired, announced that had
they -been permitted to vote they would
have voted against the bill, and the
same announcement was made in be
half of seven democratic absentees:
Caraway, Harris, King, Owen, Pitt
ian, 'Watson, of Georgia, and -Vil
It was stated also that had Sena
tors LaFollette and' Norris been pres
out they would have voted against the
measure, while the other 12 republi
can absentees would 'have voted for it.
-Senators Lenroot and Jones, of
tWlashintgon, :republicans, tynnounced
that they suiported the b)Il because
of the provisions giving , the presi
(lent broad authority to increase or
decrease in the hope that the senate
and the house conferees would re
duce rates which they considered ex
cessive. Senator 'Lenroot said that if
this 'were not done he 'would vote
against the conference report.
Immediately after the passage of
the 1il, Senator Cummin"ns, of Iowa,
presideft pro teniore, annOiuniCed ihe
appointment of the senate conferees:
Chairman Mc.Cuiber and Senator
Smoot, of Utah, and Aleiean, of Con.- t
necticut, ropublican:, and Simmons,
of North Carolina, and Jones, of New
Mexico, democrats. Senator McLean
is the fourth ranking republican on
the 'finance committee and was namedi
in 'place of Senator La Follette, who,
under the usual rule, would have
drawn the assignment, but who is oip
posed to the bill.
The measure will be returned to the
house Mlonday with a formal request
for a conference. Republicans of the I
house ways and means dommittee, at t
a meeting today, decided to have the I
measure sent to conference under a t
special rule, instead of to the ways and I
means committee fr preliminary con- I
sideration, a course that was suggest
ed somie time ago. American valuation t
will be the biggest issue in conference, I
but the general 'belief at the capital
is that the house will yield on this,
accounting the senate "flexible tariff"
plan as a substitute.
Chairman Fordney said today he I
would hold out for American valua
tion, asking instructions from the
house. Tinder this plfAI tile house
woulid (deelde tile issue by a direct
vote and the conferees then would
prtoceed With their work of adjusting
the 2,000-0(dd points in dispute be
twveen the two houses. Mr. 'Fordney
thought the 'work could be completed

entertained by senate leaders.

lock in confer'ence and there die, hut
lrpublican leaders declared the conl
for'ees would report thle bill out and
that it would be0 ready for the presi- I
dent in a tmonth.
Final action on the bill by tlhe sea
ate was .witnessed by crowded galler
ies and1 many .members of the house,
who found placesa on the senate fleeor.
