Senator Cummins of Iowa has proposed an amendment that will be received with fa vor by "progressive" republicans, while Senator Bailey has introduced such a measure that will appeal to democrats. If a majority can eventually bs obtained for this legislation, it will be made up of republican and democrats. In the senate yesterday It was agreed that the considera tion of this subject would follow the dis position of the wool schedule. It Is likely that the first bout over the Income tgx will result In a postponement of Its con sideration until the schedule of the bill have been fully determined upon, as Sen ator Aldrlch has Insisted that until this Is done the need for additional reveune from any other source csnnot be known.

"In my experience In this body," said Mr. Oallinger, "1 have never heard so oft-re-peatsd accusations that legislative trick were being practiced, and I ask that this rule be laid before the senate that every one may know what it Is." Rule xlx, which relates to the necessity for avoiding personal allusions, was then read and. th vice president declared that ha thought the senator from Wisconsin had violated It Mr. La Follette, who had 'taken his soat, arose, saying that he had noticed that this rule had not been equally applied to all senators on the floor. He said he had noticed that some senators could say things without attention being called to them, and that it was generally understood that he had In mind Senator Penrose's recent criticism of himself, which was not le buked. Vice President Sherman said he would see that the rule was uniformly applied to which Mr. La Follettee replied that hedld not blame the vice president, as he under stood that the rule was only applied when the attention of the chair wa directed to It. Cummins Warns Party Leaders. Mr. Cummin declared that he marveled at the "blindness of the leaders of the republican party that they wer willing to commit their party to suJh a woolen schedule." "Senators." he said, "you are almply courting th destruction of your party by allowing such a schedule to go out to the country." The Aldrlch-LaFollette Incident then came to a closa and Senator Beacon took the floor. Explaining that the duty levied by the pending bill upon blankets used by the poor was a high as ItiO pr cent ad valorem, although but 71 per cent was placed upon the finest blankets used by the rich, Senator Oore off ore J an amendment limit ing to 76 per cent, any duty upon a woolen blanket. This amendment teceived the support of Senators Brlstow, Brown, Burkett, Clapp, Dolllver. LaFollette and Nelson. but Senator Cummins voted against It. The amendment waa rejected by 29 to 43. Just before the senate took recess, a motion by Mr. Cummins to re commit the woolen schedule to the finance committee was defeated, 8 to S9. Those voting In the afftimatlve were Beverldge, Brlstow.
