(from a Staff Cprrespondent.) WASHINOTON. May .-Sprclal.) At th nnl of tho tariff debate ami a vote In tho senate on the pending, hill, a amended, approaches, considerable Interest attaches to tin; probable, personnel of the conferenre committee on the part of the two houses, conference committees have In the last three great tariff bills so completely 'changed the measures that It Is expected that the conference on the present bill will afford no exceptional result. Senator Aldrich, as chairman of the fi nance committee, will, of course, head the even, member on behalf of the senate. Speculation has It that his associate con ferees will be Messrs. Harrows, Penrose and Hale, republicans, and Daniel, Money and Halle, democrat. The house conferee will likely be Chatr man l'aynu of the ways and means com mittee ami Messrs. Dalaelt, Houtell and Forduey, republican, mid Minority leader Champ (.'lark, l.'ndcrwood and BniiMsard, democrats. The detection of the house conferees. It Is believed, will show a .departure from the usual practice of taking member from tho two partlea according to their rank on the committee. With that view and be cause of the known attitude of members toward tariff legislation. It la assumed that Speaker Cannon will prefer Houtell and Fordney, who are stanch protectionists, to members of superior rank., such aa McCall and Hill, who have not always been un comproinlMlng protectionists. Calderhead and NeeUham also outrank Boutell and Fordney on the committed, but they .have not shown the name ical for the preserva tion of the protective policy. House Minority In Doobt. . Them la no rttiht that Minority Leader Clark and Congressman t'nderwood will be two of the three democrats of the confer pnee committee. tlriiiga of Georgia and I'ou of North Carolina, and Randall of Texas all outrank Breussard. the Louisiana, member recently appointed on the ways . and m-iintJnUy;v. but democratic rank , 1m not going well with "Vncle Joe" at this Juncture, and it is believed that he will make a conferee of Breussard for the same reason that ho assigned him to the wa and means committee, because he I as re liable as any republican on tariff questions, and the speaker Is prone to reward dis criminating intelligence with courage to as sert itself, especially when such a brave light shines In the darkness of the south. If there were any available statistics of speculation as to when congress will get through with the tariff, It would probably be Indicative that the senate will complete consideration and reach a vote by the last week In May. The bill would then go to conference. Should there be serious dif ference, the ai.l of the president to com pose them would probably be Invoked. This would seem to locate the adjournment of the extra session about the middle of June.

This I'nited States government docs not publish advertisements In tho "want columns" of the dally papers.

The I'nited States gov ernment has In the senate office building a completely equipped kitchen with ser vants' quarters, storage rooms and every thing that makes for a first claas restau rant, w hich will be turned over trea of rent, together with free lee, flee fuel, free light aad free toothpicks to any first class caterer who understands his business and whv is of good moral character, and who will agree to furnish meals and luncheons to teualors, employes of the senate and visitors at reasonable prices."

Well known artists and experts are armly denouncing certain letters which hex a appeared In the newspapers, "aa an sttmpt to exploit public sentimentality to further a cool and calculating business pre position." The roncensus of opinion seems to b that the picture Is not worth anything like the S3fifi,nno demanded for It. This sum, which Is about double the highest figure pra vloiifly nld for any Holbein, apparently represent a profit, of StSVOnn for some one. as the duke of Norfolk sold the oanvaa for f.000. The storm of controversy which raged several years ago when the public was Induced to subscribe JKS.OiiO for the purchase of the Valesque "Venus and Cupid." by the report that the picture was in dinger of being taken out of the country, has been revived, as exactly the same tactics are being pursued In the present Instance.

SPECULATORS' BONDS LOOSED Decision on Hepburn Commodity Act Was the Key, BROUGHT A TEEXtHft, OP RELIEF Stork Market Um Head Things Into the Derlalon that Rrnced X p Some Wavering; Dealers. NEW TOKK, May 9.-The long awaited decision of the supreme court on the valid ity of the commodities clause of the Hep burn act proved the key which unlocked the speculation in stocks from the bonds which had been holding It. The mere feel ing of relief that the subject wss disposed of played a large part In the effect, since tha halt In the market with each recur rence of decision day In court testified to the restraining effect which the suspense was exercising. The advantage to the coal roads from the practical nullification of the Intention of the act to compel them to disappropriate the coal mining properties was sufficiently obvious. The stock mar ket lawyers also rushed to some sweeping and loose Interpretations ot the hearing of the decision on the whole subject of cor poration control, reading into it a practical Immunity of the power of the government to prevent combinations and mergers, and repeal, in effect, of the provisions of tho anti-trust act. These assumptrbna were made to play no small part in the out break of speculation during the week and the effect was especially marked in such securities as are affected by the exercise of the "holding company" device.

The plan of wholesalers to prevent Lin coln from remaining entirely dry I to re move their business houses to ltavelock, a suburb that is not dry, and thus supply the thirst of Lincoln people by delivery wagons. A movement has been started by the liquor Interest of the city to head off the effect of tho prohibition amendment and to this end member of the excise board have been aproached with the proposition as to their attitude on the matter if tho referendum can be thrown out In court and the vote declared void. This proposition follows one that would have the excise board extend the time for taking effect of the amendment or law so that the liquor dealer can get rid ot their stocks to better advantage. On various emcaslona since the passing of the law of prohibition the excise board has, Individually, expressed Itself as ready and determined to enforce the mandate of the people whatever becomes of the refer endum vot.

ENGLAND'S GREATEST REVENUE Money from Income Tax Last Fiscal Year Was $165,000,000. MORE THAN EXCISE OR CUSTOMS Two-Thirds of Amount Collected in England Paid Indirectly. SENATE STILL CHEWING TARIFF Talk TV Ml Net Be ( nnflned to rend ing; Amendments, hot Will Range Oifr TVhnt Field of Polities. WASHINGTON. May . A report which constitutes an Important contribution to the current discussion of the proposed In come tax la made to the bureau of manu facturer of the Department of Common nd Labor by Charles M. Pepper, the po iil agent who has been Investigating fiscal affairs In Europe. Mr. Pepper ya that for the fiscal year ending March SI, 1!i. revenue from tho Irccme tax In Great Britain was UW.OOn.noo. This tax In 1908 was tlie greatrat singU source of revenue, exceeding the excis impost by Sl.SufUM) and tho custom re ceipt by Sffi.nnn.OOO. It is explained In the report that the lax I Imposed for every shilling of the annual value of certain profits which are et forth under the various schedules com prising the ource of Income. Two-third of the tax I paid Indirectly. Collections Include the tnx on land paid through the terantn, on dividend paid from the office of public companies and on consols paid through the Bank of England. Still (hear on Tariff. The tarirf bill will continue to receive the undivided attention of the senate dur- , Ing ths present week. Ostensibly the amendment to the different achedule will be before the senate, but there will doubt lera be much general discussion of tho whole tariff question. The bill has aroused a degieo of opposition among republican senator which had not been counted upon and while the finance committee la still confident that it will be sustained in Its position, there is little effort on the. part of Its member to conceal the fact that they are annoyed over the situation be cause of the delay. It fcr no other reaon. The general oplrion I that in the end ths committee will prevail, hut every turn In the pathway of discussion opens up new vistas, so that apparently the end Is Mill apparently far off, , . , .. , Tbero i talkof ' IrngUwiulriit the-houm of dsMy sittings, but there ia fear thut ft this course I resorted to it will have the effect of antngonizirtg to a still greater degree the opponents of the niessine and of thus creating delay rather titan expedit ing the measure. No announcement for the delivery of prepared speeches hare been made, but this clrcunpuance Is nowhera regarded a an Indication that tho supply of oratory has been exhausted. Philippine Tariff In llooe. In the house the Philippine tariff bill will be reported tomorrow and there will bo an effort to consider It on Thursday. f there should be objection on account of the absence of a quorum, reccsa will be taken until Friday, when the house will proceed with the discussion of tho bill. There Is little or no opposition to the bill. Owing to tlie shape in which ths debate In the senate has assumed most of the prophets are extending considerably I lie day fo final adjournment. The member of the finance committee are by no mean as sanguine of early adjournment a they formerly ware and some senator are plac ing the date a lute a the first of August. It probably will not, however, be later than July 1. mri II Incomes Exempt. Incomes under $8U0 are exempt from the tax, and graduated abatements are al lowed on lncomea between SsOO und $i.W. In determining the yield from the tax, which at one shilling In the pound Is nom inally 5 per cent, attention must be paid to the rate of charge. The lowst rate In the last half century has been a fraction over 1 cent on the dollar. Since 18H the hlghcHt I ate lias been about M cents to the five dollars. Tables are given showing net receipts of the tax for each year since 1898. In lfm? the yield was S159.u00.ono as against X, orp.i.trio In -i'M. Both the gross amounts and the tu t lncomea Increased In tlie ten years previously covered up, so that tha lu creased amount can not always be taken as a fresh addition to the national wealth. Mr. Pepper analzes the various auurcis from which the tax Is drawn and shows that the principal source comes under the group of businesses and professions and particular properties, such as railways, canals and mines and foreign and colonial securities. The next leading anurce C revenue la from profit from the owner ship of houses and lards. Onlaide Investment Par, A very Interesting feature of the British income tax Is the amount received from Investment abroad. In l?"t the income dis closed from this source was S:H)6,000.000, but there is a large amount of income from abroad which cannot lie identified aa such In the axgcsHiiients. Since two-thirds of the tax ia collected Indirectly, It li not possible to glv tha ex'ict number of Individual Income tax payers. Businesses and professions and empluyes of the government and public companies paid taxes on J1,UOO.O1,01' Twenty Individuals) and ninety-two firms paid assessments on Incomes of Kjo.kO and upwards.
