LOWER DUTY ON PRODUCTS To Meet Western Demands New Eng land Representatives Agree to Make Concessions on Manufactured Leath er Goods—This Opens the Way for the Conferees to Reach an Agree' ment on Much Disputed Subject. Washington, July 26.—Hides will bo put upon the free list and existing rates on all leather goods will be sub stantlally reduced, some of them bo low the duties fixed by either the house or senate tariff bills. By making this reduction OH the finished products of leather a part of the agreement for free hides it is said that the conferees will be acting with in tholr powers and that it will not be necessary to recommit the bill either in the house or senate to se cure a reduction in the leather sched ule. Senators Crane and Lodge were among the earliest of thg president's callers and told him that New Eng land was willing to make concessions in the matter of reduced rates or shoes, etc., as a part of the bargain for free hides. This opened the way, they said, for an agreement in tho conference committee, for the West ern senators who have been lighting the proposition to place hides on the free list have announced time and again that their objection would cease whenever the rates on shoes, etc.. were accordingly reduced. The rates on shoes will be lowered from 1C to 10 per cent, according to the president's advices. Borah Consents to Scheme. Senator Borah of Idaho, after a con ference with the president following the call of Messrs. Crane and Lodge, said there was no longer any doubt that hides would go on the free list along with a substantial reduction in the rates on finished leather products. The generally accepted programme is as follows: Hides, free sole leather, 6 per cent ad valorem, the same as the house rate and 10 per cent lower than the senate rate leather for uppers, 7 Ms per cent, which is one-half the rate of the senate and the house bills boot and shoes, 10 per cent, as against l." per cent in the house bill and 20 per cent In the senate bill. These rates it is said, are to be applied to articles which are made chiefly of the grades of hides which would be admitted free. The present indications are that the advocates of a duty on hides will ac cept the situation after a struggle in the senate. A large portion of their natural support will be drawn away from them by the reduction of the duties on leather and leather good': and they have been told that If the present bill falls another measure will be brought In Immediately which would not only make hides free, but would strike at wool and lead and zinc ores.
