NEWS REVIEW OF CURRENT EVENTS New Tariff Measure, Restoring High Protection, Is Ready for Congress. LONG DEBATE IS EXPECTED President and Dawes Begin Work of Reducing Expenses House Accepts Borah Naval Holiday Amendment -De Valera Declines Lloyd George's Invitation to Conference. By EDWARD W. PICKARD. After four months of -hard labor the ways and means committee of the house has completed the new penna nent tariff bill. It will be formally reported to the house probably be fore the end of the current week, Then will begin a debate that will seem like the good old times, for the measure drastically revises the tariff law under which we have been operat lng for eight years and restores the principle of high protection for Amer ican Industry. Members of the com mittee estimate It will bring in a rev enue as high as $700,000,000 a year more than twice the amount pro duced by the Payne-Aldrich law. Of late years many Democrats have changed their attitude toward the tar iff to a considerable extent, admitting the truth of Hancock's dictum that It is a local Issue and favoring real protection for the Industries of cer tain parts of the country. But few If any of the minority members of the house can be expected to swallow whole this new bill without going on record as upholding In general the traditional policy of their party a tariff for revenue only. A long debate, therefore, may be expected. There are some Republicans, also, who are opposed to certain features of the measure and the closing eve nings of the week were given up to caucuses of the Republicans to com pose their differences. In several re spects the committee yielded at the last. For Instance, It Is left to the discretion of the President to impose the duty on lumber planed on one or more sides and tongued and grooved equal to the 25 per cent ad valorem Canadian duty. The committee also gave in to the demand of the smaller oil producers and put a "duty of 35 cents per barrel on crude petroleum - and 25 cents per barrel on fuel oil. Among the more Important general features of the measure are the follow ing: American valuation of Imports Is provided for, the century old system of foreign valuation being abandoned. Broad powers are given the Presi dent to make reciprocal tariff relations with other countries. Duties much higher than In the for mer Payre-Aldrich tariff law are im posed upon chemicals and products of other industries established during the war which are considered essential from a standpoint of national defense. Far-reaching powers are given to the tariff commission in restricting Imports r dyes for a three-year pe riod. Duties on automobiles are reduced, in compliance with the request of the manufacturers, who advanced the ar gument that such action would cause other nations to remove high duties on American cars. Protection on agricultural products about equal to that of the Payne-Aldrich law Is given, rates In several Instances being less than In the emer gency tariff law now in effect. Duties on wool are on an entirely different basis from former laws, and it is a matter of controversy whether the basic rate is higher or lower than In the Payne-Aldrlch law. Among the commodities on the free list are: Agricultural Implements, animals Imported for breeding pur poses, antimony ore, antitoxins and vaccines, bread, chromite, coal, cobalt, cocoa, coffee, copper ore, cotton, cork bark," iron ore, leather, shoes, hides, LOOKING TO SOUTH AMERICA Bolshevik Leaders, in the Event Their Downfall, May Seek a Haven There. of Reval, Esthonia. According to re ently Intercepted correspondence from Communist officials In Moscow to Communist agents abroad, advising them of the "inside situation" In Rus sia, South America Is looked on as a final haven of refuge by many of the lesa hopeful Bolshevik leaders In I r-,-vj. H " J- f i wood pulp, platinum, radium, silk cocoons, news print paper, tapioca and tapioca flour, tea, tin ore, works of art, and most kinds of lumber. Despite the fact that the new tariff will produce a huge revenue, the need of reducing government expenditures is as pressing as ever, and President Harding and Director of the Budget Dawes seem determined to bring about that result. They met last week with the cabinet and the heads of all the bureaus the first meeting of the kind ever held and had a heart to heart talk on means to meet the emergency. Mr. Harding quickly gave the floor to Mr. Dawes and that vigorous Chi cagoan told the gathering In plain language what he planned to do and what the. others must do to help him Then he added: "The permanent success of the bud get system depends upon certain basic principles, which at Its inception must be so firmly established both as to concept and rules of action, that they never hereafter will be questioned. "The budget bureau must be im partial. Impersonal, and nonpolltlcal. In concluding, he ordered the bureau chiefs to their feet and, holding up his hand, recited the following pledge, ad dressed to the President : These men, of whom I am one, realize the perplexity of your position, realize that the business of the coun try is prostrate, that its working men are out of employment, that we are faced with inexorable necessity of re ducing expenditures, and we propose, just as we did four years ago to win the war, to try to do It. And that's all we can do.". President Harding, anxious to have the controversy over the "naval holi day" plan ended, wrote to Congress man Mondell a letter saying that he was "vastly more concerned with the attitude of the congress on this ques tion than I am as to the form of ex pressing that attitude." When this let ter was read to the house, Mr. Mondell and all the others who had wanted the disarmament proposal to Include land forces gave in and agreed to accept the Borah amendment to the naval appropriation bill. That Is, all but four gave In. The only negative votes were cast by Representatives Moore, Indi ana, Republican ; and Campbell, Penn sylvania ; Carew, New York, and O' Brien, New Jersey, all Democrats. Representative LInberger, California, Republican, voted present. Republican members of the house and senate conference committee on the resolution to declare the state of war with Germany ended reached a compromise carrying the house dec laration of a state of peace Instead of the senate repeal of the war reso lution, and the senate provisions pro tecting American interests, .with an additional section giving still further protection to the United States. Sim ilar sections end the state of war with Austria-Hungary. So that squabble is settled. Notwithstanding the impassioned protests of many congressmen and the earnest arguments of many physicians, the house last week passed the so- called Willis-Campbell bill designed to forestall the execution of a regulation providing for the prescription of beer and light wines as medicine held by former Attorney General Palmer to be within the law. The vote was 250 :o 03. The measure is now in the annds of the senate, and Senator 3roussard of Louisiana already has delivered a red-hot speech against It. Of the appointment of former Pres ident Taft to be chief Justice of the Supreme court of the United States there is little to be said that has not already been said in anticipation. Mr. Taffs fitness for the high position is unquestioned and the selection will meet with practically unanimous ap proval. The railway labor board Issued two orders of importance last week. The first extended to all big railways the wage cut which went Into effect on July 1. The second abolished tlme-and-a-half pay for all work over an eight-hour day, and, with the exception of this change, extended indefinitely the operation of the national agree- event Russia becomes too hot for them. - One of these letters, recently pub lished In a Reval newspaper, the Pos lednie Novosti, advises one of the offi cial's friends, who now is apparently in Germany, to "convert your valu ables Into dollars as frequently as you can, or, better still, into South American currency." "The Octobrists," the letter adds, meaning by them those Communists who participated In the October (1917) revolution, "are frequently sending Ml I " (: If ,i, ' 2 ? :gmí!!. taw 'A-tf: iivrx -r '- -..umr., -. yr'T& -yt-.v"1 c iSiit7.WMff.3 ments which were to have terminated last Friday. The overtime order Is not final, however. It was hoped that the railroads and employees would soon reach agreements relating to rules and working conditions. Rail union leaders to the number of more than a thousand met ' In Chicago to decide whether the employees should accept the wage cut and to try to avert a tie-up In the country s trans portation facilities. In the Chicago district It appeared the efforts of Judge Landis as arbi trator would result in the ending of the controversy that has tied up all building operations for a long time. The carpenters were the last to yield. There was rejoicing in England at the news that the great strike of Brit ish coal miners had been ended and that the men would return to the pits on July" 4. The government grants a subsidy of ten million pounds to avert the hardships of the next three months due to wage reductions. By the terms of the settlement a new wage basis will come Into effect for the next eighteen months whereby the miners receive 20 "per cent above the pre-war scale of wages, with an ad ditional share of profits, which will be regulated by the creation of a na tional board and district boards. The strike thus ended lasted 94 days and is considered the most injurious Eng land ever suffered, because it crippled so many industries and affected all classes of the population. Lloyd George's effort, to arrive at a friendly solution of the Irish trouble by Inviting De Valera and an associ ate to confer In London with him and with Sir James Craig, premier of Ul ster, appears to have failed as have all other attempts to settle the row. Craig agreed to the conference, but De Valera has balked. At first the Irish "president" wrote to Lloyd George a temporizing letter, and invited Craig to meet him In Dublin for an exchange of views. Craig declined, and De Valera wrote him : "Mr. Lloyd George's proposal, because of Its Im plications, is impossible of acceptance In Its present form. Irish political differences should be adjusted and can, I believe, be adjusted on Irish soil. It Is obvious that in negotiating peace with Great Britain the Irish del egation ought not to be divided, but should act as a unit on some common principle." A London newspaper says the au thorities have discovered and frus trated a plot to murder the British cabinet ministers. It says the police are seeking three men sent to Lon don to do the assassinating. They are a French medical student, an Irish man from the western part of the United States and a Spaniard. The same paper declares the forces of he Royal Irish constabulary are to be quadrupled at once. Rather unexpectedly, King Constan- tlne refused to defer his projected offensive against the Turkish Nation alists and permit the allies to try to mediate. It was believed he knew the Turks were getting ready to at tack with Bolshevist aid and deter mined to strike first. The British ex erted extreme pressure on the Greeks, and up to the time of writing the only fighting has been a rather bloody con flict while the Greeks were withdraw ing from Ismid. Thursday's news dis patches indicated that Constantine had good grounds for his apprehension. The allied troops in Constantinople were called into action to forestall a vast uprising planned by the Turks and the Bolshevik!, which was to be accompanied by the destruction of pub lic buildings. The Bolshevik head quarters were raided, quantities of weapons seized and several ringlead ers arrested. In the death roll of the week ap pear two notable names. Charles J. Bonaparte, eminent citizen of Balti more and cabinet member during the Roosevelt administration, died at his country home. He was a grandnephew of the great Napoleon. Lady Ran dolph Churchill, who was Jennie Jerome of New York, passed away as the result of Injuries received last May. Probably no other American woman has had so great an Influence on British public affairs. She was famous as a writer and a wit. their families abroad. Soon, It may be, I shall send my wife across to you. In which case try to put her up as best you can." Referring to the political situation, this communist wrote: "Illitch (meaning Lenin, that being his middle name by which he Is popularly known In Russia) Is weakening. Zinovleff has grown too fat. Trotzky alone re mains as of old the unrecognized Na poleon, but he Is 'evolutlonlzlng' also." Bad temper means bad business.
