President Wins Point in
Tariff Contest.
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.
