FORTY AT MEETIN6
Tftose in Attendance Stand Out for an
Opportunity to Vote on the Hide,
Lumber, Coal, Iron Ore, Barley and
Other Schedules—Only Eleven Mem
bers Present When Day's Debate
Opens in House.
Washington, April 5.—A meeting of
lMiween forty and fifty Republican
representatives was held here and or
ganized opposition to the Payne bill.
It was attended by those standing out
for an opportunity to vote on the hide,
lumber, coal, iron ore, barley and
filler schedules.
ELEVEN MEMBERS PRESENT
Little Interest in Tariff Debate in the
House.
Washington, April 5.—Eleven mem
bers were in their seats when the
house of representatives met to fur
ther consider the Payne bill. It was
the smallest attendance of the special
session and demonstrated the fact
that interest in the debate had prac
tically disappeared.
While declaring that he would vote
for the bill Mr. Kinkaid (Rep., Neb.)
entered strenuous objection to the
taxing of those necessaries of life
which were not produced In this coun
try.
The proposed tax on tea and the
countervailing duty on cofTee, he said,
were especially obnoxious to him and
he urged their removal. Mr. Kinkaid
also opposed the placing of hides on
the free list

along the lines of those expressed by
his colleague, Pablo Ocampo de Leon.
Calls It a Revenue Consumer.
Divesting himself, as he said, of ali
political feeling Mr. Cox (Dem., Ind.)
opposed the Payne bill, advancing th#
argument that instead of being a rev
enue producer it would prove to be a
revenue consumer.
The placing of wood pulp on the
free list and the reduction of the duty
on printing paper were opposed by
Mr. Malbv of New York.
.Maintaining that the bill was dis
criminatory I\lr. Sabath of Illinois at
tacked the proposed increases on the
necessities of life and on wearing ap
parel, especially gloves.
Free coal, iron and lumber and a
tariff commission were some of the
things contended for by Mr. Gronna
(Rep.. N. D.). The drawback section
of the bill was criticised by him be
cause it would take from the revenues
enormous sums of money that should
tco into the treasury.
Mr. Howell (Utah* favored a duty
on hides, lumber and coal. Mr. Hob
son of Alabama followed Mr. Howell.
A general defense of the paper manu
facturers was made by Mr. Swasey of
Missouri. There was no business, he
said, freer from combination or con
spiracy to control or raise prices than
the paper business.

SliPRtKE COURT
Waters-Pierce Company Appeals
ftem Taxas Decisions.
Washington, April 6.—In behalf of
the Waters-Pierce Oil company former
United States Senator John C. Spoou
er has filed in the supreme court of
the United States a petition for a re
hearing of the various cases brought
by the state of Texas against that
company and which were recently de
cided against it. These include the
cases involving the appointment of a
receiver for the company and the one
ousting the company from the state
and imposing a fine of $1,519,000 fnr
violations of the Texas anti-trust laws.
The principal reason for the petition
1s that the fine was so excessive as tc
deprive the oil company of its prop
erty without due process of law. In
support of this contention attention is
called to the fact that In the record of
the case it was claimed that the oil
company was making as high as 700
per cent on Its capital, but it is set
forth that while this might be true
with reference to the $400,000 of cap
ital stock it was not true with refer
ence to the $40,000,000 of the assets
of the company. Much stress is laid
upon the fact that a large portion of
the fine was based upon the Texas
anti-trust law of 1899 imposing a
penalty of $1,500 a day after that law
had been repealed. "We therefore
submit," says the petition, "that it Is
little short of confiscation for the
state to have neglected to enforce the
act of 1899 for seven years and after
that act had been repealed and the
amount of the penalty reduced to $30
per day to insist upon a verdict for
$1,600 per day for 1,033 days."
ASSISTANCE FOR HATTERS
Federation of Labor Raises $200,000
by Assessment.
Newark, N. J., April 5.—Money in
large amounts began to pour Into the
treasury of the United Hatters of
North America as a result of an as
sessment of all trades unions by the
American Federation of Labor. The
assessment was ordered a few days
ano by the general executive board of
the federation and the striking hat
tors have commenced to receive sub
stantial returns.
The hatters' union at once resumed
the payment of weekly benefits to the
strikers. It is expected that $200,000
will be raised by the assessment.

HIGHEST POINT \r
N SOME YEARS
May Wheat on Chicago Board
of Trade $1.2214.
OYERTOPS BIO GATES DEAL
Present High Level Due Largely to
an Exceedingly Urjent Demand for
Cash Grain—John Dickinson & Co
Prominent Chicago Brokers, Sus
pend With liabilities «f Abetu
$250,000.
Chicago, April 5.—Wheat for May
delivery overtopped the high point
$1.21% reached during the celebrated
Gates deal In 1905, when It sold onth'
board of trade here at $1.22%
P1
bushel. Only twice during the Iatf
twenty years has wheat sold at a
higher figure on the local exchange
In October, 18S8, tie price reache I
$1.23% and again in May, 1898, dur
lng the Leiter campaign, a mark
$1.85 was established. The present
high level Is due largely to an ex
ceedingly urgent demand for the cash
grain.
New York, April 5.—The May wheat
contract In New York touched $1.24ri
and July $1.15%, both new high re
ords. There was heavy covering of
shorts, due to the strong cash situa
tion, higher cables and the suspension
of a Chicago grain house, reported to
have bees heavily shift «e May
wheat.
LIABILITIES OF $250,000
John Dickinson A Co., Chicago Bro
kers, Suspend.
Chicago, April 5.—Announcement
was made on the board of trade of
the suspension of the firm of John
Dickinson & Co., grain, stock and pro
vision brokers. In addition to its mem
bership on the board of trade the
company also held membership on the
Consolidated Stock Exchange of New
York. The firm also had from twenty
five to thirty offices scattered through
out the country. The liabilities were
said to be in the neighborhood of
$250,000.
According to J. T. Murphy, manager
of the Chicago office, the firm had
been doing a good business here, but
the trouble, he said, grew out of the
stock business In the East. He stated
that Mr. Dickinson, who Is now in
New York, had wired him that the
suspension was only temporary.
New York, April 5.—The suspension
of the firm of John Dickinson & Co. o!
Chicago and New York, announced
from the floor of the consolidated ex
change here, was said by a represent a
tive of the firm in this city to have
been due to the recent advance In
wheat and to the fact that one of the
firm's large customers in Chicago
"laid down*' on the firm. This cus
tomer. according to the spokesman
for the house here, failed to furnish
additional margins when called upon
thus forcing the suspension.
MUCH DEPENDS ON THE CROP
J. J. Hill Discusses Possibility of Bet
ter Times.
Washington, April 5.—"If the tariff
ts given prompt attention and thi
year's crops are good there should be
a return of the wholesome conditions
of 1906 and 1906," said J. J. Hill, head
of the Great Northern railroad, here
"It is best that normal conditions
should be restored surely rather than
swiftly."
Mr. Hill stated that there were 270,
000 idle freight cars In the country,
which, if coupled together, would
make a train extending from New
York to St. lxiuis and then back to
Baltimore. "Yet there are those who
ask why car shops are not running
full force and when the railroads an
going to order new rolling stock." h(
continued. "Orders for new cars will
be put In when the old and Idle ones
are used and new ones are needed
The expeditious enactment of the tsir
lfT legislation will help business, but
It will not be a cure all."
He explained that much depended
upon whether the crops would prove
to be all farmers expected of them.
RUSH TO WESTERN CANADA

Many Years.
Winnipeg, Man., April 5.—The Im
migration movement Into Canada from

Youth Dies in Electric Bath of His
Own Device.
Indianapolis, April 5.—Conrad Sper
ka, a young electrician, died In an
electric bath of his own device. He
had arranged that the water in his
bathtub could be charged with elec

and had been overcome. He came

Stirring Contest.
Putney, Eng., April 5.—The sixty
sixth Oxford-Cambridge eight-oared
rowing rate was won on the Thames
by Oxford by three and one-half
lengths after a tussle which for three
quarters of the course was one of the
most stirring contests seen on the
Thames for many years.
The time was 19 minutes and 50
seconds, but had the Oxonians been
pressed at the finish they could have
reduced this by a good many seconds.
As far as Barnes bridge It was any
body's race, but at this point the
greater weight and stamina of the

dash R. C. Bourne, the Oxford stroke,
