CLOSE ON ONE PROPOSAL Tawney Amendment to Admit Free of Duty All but Finished Lumber Lost by a Vote of 170 to 176—Fordney Amendment 8triking Out the Pro vision for a Countervailing Duty Adopted. Washington, April T.—The house overwhelmingly adopted the Fordney amendment to the Payne tariff bill striking out the provision for a coun tervailing duty on lumber. This amendment was pending when Consideration .of the bill was resumed. A parliamentary snarl at once was encountered as to whether or not Other amendments would be permitted Under the rule adopted. The point was raised by Mr. Clark of Missouri, the minority leader. A number of members were immediately on their feet endeavoring to put their construc tion upon the rule and to allay the im pending excitement the chair had the rule read for information. Messrs. Fitzgerald of New York and Dalzell of Pennsylvania, both on the committee On rules, contended that individual amendments under the rule could be Offered. The chair ruled that other amend ments could be offered, but that the committee amendment offered by Mr. Fordney had i recedence.

A N E S O N tion again became clouded by the of fering of a substitute amendment by Mr. Clark, who desired to speak to it, but the chair ruled that Mr. Fordney was entitled to the floor. Mr. Ford ney said he introduced his amendment with great regret, as the provision it sought to strike out was a meritorious one. "I am offering the amendment," he declared, "and will vote for it, but It causes me to sweat blood In doing eo." Mr. Tawney of Minnesota jumped up with a substitute. Mr. Clark, who also claimed the floor, was nized. Clark Wants Tret Lumber. The Clark substitute, which was then read, provided for amending sev eral sections by placing lumber on the free list. Mr. Tawney contended that two paragraphs could not be covered in one amendment and offered an entire substitute for the lumber schedule, uiodifing but retaining the duty. The chair ruled that the Fordney amendment had precedence. Against the protests of Mr. Tawney the chair recognized Mr. De Armond of Missouri for an amendment as a substitute to the countervailing pro vision providing fcr the free admis sion of lumber from all parts of the Western hemisphere. The De Armond amendment was lost, 131 to 178, thirty Democrats voting with the Republic ans. The Fordney amendment was over whelmingly adopted by a viva voce vote. Mr. Tawney at once reoffered his amendment, which, he said, would take the duty off all lumber included in paragraph 197 of the bill, except finished lumber, the duty on which would be materially reduced. He would later, he said, offer an amend ment placing rough lumber on the free list. The Tawney amendment was lost on division. 151 to 173, party align ments beinfc badly broken. A vote by tellers on l:i domand also resulted in being l03t, 170 to 178.

Kel logg, addressing the federal court in the course of his argument to have the Standard Oil company dissolved FRANK B. KELLOGQ. as a violator of the Sherman act, "your children and mine will be mere employes of corporations and all fur ther initiative of enterprise will cease." Further in his address Mr. Kellogg said impressively: "The defense prob ably will declare that it cannot be checked because of existing condi tions and its prominence In the econ omies of the country, but history has shown that when unchecked by court or legislation monopolies have been stopped by revolution."
