The provision for a tax on stock and bond transac tions In connection with the tariff bill, which was agreed upon at the caucus of republican senators, was suggested by Senator Lodge, of Massachusetts, and grew out of a statement that with tho tea and beer provisions withdrawn the tariff bill was likely to full short to the extent of $15,000,000 in provid ing sufficient revenue to meet tho de mands of the government. The suggestion as made toy Senator Lodge was that a tax of two cents per share should be levied upon every share of stock sold at a stock exchange or at any other place, and that a simi lar tax of two cents should be collected upon all bonds sold on the stock ex changes or elsewhere. The caucus ac cepted the suggestion, but decided to leave the formulation of the amend ment, with a possible chunge of rates, to the finance committee.
