This change in heart on tho part of tba board was reached after At torney Q. S.

WASHINGTON. Jan. 24 At a hearing before the house committee on ways and means today Secretary Palmer of the American Beet Sugar association opposed the pending bill reducing the duty on sugar and tobacco from the Philippine Wanils.
