HIDE SCHEDULE
i IS LAID ASIDE
Conferees Discuss the Other
Matters in Dispute.
QUESTION UP TO HOUSE
Conference Committee Awaiting Ac
tion by Lower Branch of Congress
Ml Resolution Authorizing a Reduc­
tion in Rates of Manufactured
Leather Goods Before Making a
Final Decision Regarding Hides.
Washington, July 28.—The confer
•m on the tariff bill devoted the day
to other subjects than hides, pending
decision by the house on a resolution
authorizing the committee to reduce
Ike rates In the leather schedule.
It is not true that opt»onents of free
hides are willing to accept tree hides
tf they can- got free leather and free
leather goods. If they have to take
tree hides they want the hide product.*
also free, but they do not in reality
desire that either hides or leather or
leather Rood3 should be placed upon
the free list. Therefore, many of the
hide men will refus" to vote for the
resolution authorizing a reduction
ftiom the house rate on leather and
leather goods. Not only will they
»Dte against this resolution, but they
we doing all they can to antagonize
it. Said one of them:
"I am a protectionist I want leath
er and leather products protected as
Well as other manufactured articles.
I think tho house made the rates low
enough. To reduco these rates still
further would be to surrender to the
Democrat*, and. for one, I will not do
that."
The hide men are making a strong
appeal to the representatives from
the tanning and shoe manufacturing
districts in the hope that they will see
that the placing of hides on the free
list, together with a reduction of hide
products. Is a tendency towards the
Democratic doctrine and they claim
to be making some headway with
them.
Strong 8entiment for Free Hides.
Still the sentiment In favor of free
hides is very strong and the repre
sentatives of the manufacturing cen
ters are quite as active as the hide
men. Many of them are willing to
make a slight reduction In order to
procurc the complete surrender of the
hide advocates. They have with them
on the new proposition for the reduc
tion not only the most of the repre
sentatives from the manufacturing
districts and the president, who is un
ceasing in his efforts, but also the
Republican advocates of a lower duty
&&Q in addition toali these forces they
expect to have practically the solid
Democratic vote of the bouse.
The Democrat's do not want free
hides without free leather, bet If
forced to vote for lower rates on
leather it Is contended that they will
fee compelled to do so as in the line
#f Democratic doctrine, regard'ess of
the efTect the vote will have upon
Sides themselves.
Before entering the conference
Chairman Payne of the house conferees
•aid that no effort would be made to
ftave the house act on the proposed re
duction resolution before the latter
part of the week. Meuntime the con
ferees will nuko an effort to have all
poitione of the bill except the hid©
and the leather schedule in shape for
prompt presentation to congress as
soon as the work on (tat schedule la
finished.

BOOKS BEING INSPECTED
Known Positively That the Defalca
tion Totals $85,000 and It Is Al
leged That the Interest Bearing Ac
counts, Amounting to $400,000, Have
Been Manipulated but to What Ex
tent Is Not Stated.
Tipton, Ind., July 28 —How much
more than |S0,000 is missing from the
First National bank, of which Noah
Murker, who has disappeared, was as
sistant casnier, continues a secret
locked from the public behind the
doors of the institution.
i Groups of anxious depositors gath-
»red at the bank discussing the pla
e rd announcing that Marker had ab
sconded with all the bank's available
cash and that the institution would
be closed until further instructions
had been received from the treasury
department at Washington.
At least |25,000, it has been dis
covered in a rapid inspection of the
bank's accounts, had been missing be
fore Marker left and at the close of
business Saturday the cash box in tho
safe had been emptied of the $60,000
it contained. This brings the total of
money missing, so far as now pos
itlvely known, to $85,000.
Easy of Manipulation.
It is alleged that the interest bear
ing accounts of the bank particularly
have been manipulated. The total of
these is about $400,000. As most of
them were undisturbed by their depos
itors for long periods it was com
paratively easy to draw from them.
How many thousands of dollars these
accounts are short is a Question yet
to be answered.
The total of deposits in the bank
is
$SOO.OOO.
The institution has been
extraordinarily prosperous under the
management of William Marker, the
cashier, and his brother, the missing
man. In the last six years, according
to the reports of the treasury depart
ment at Washington, it has paid divi
dends of $200,000 on its capital of
$100,000, at the rata of 33% per cent.
In business circles the Marker
brothers have been known for years
as the "best of fellows." With one ex
ception the bank has made a larger
number of loans than any other in
Indiana.
