Repre sentative Payne reported tho tariff bill back to tho house from the ways and moans committee shortly after noon today with tho roconuy&HlH tint It to mwi us luiiuauwu Payne's roport gives two roosoos for revising the tariff at tho present time. Tho first reason Is Unit nftor ;2 yours operation of tho prosont tar iff now conditions render an adjust ment advisable.

Tho roport! relutCH to tho process adopted by tho commltteo In obtain ing Information for ttiu changes in the tariff.

Brit ish Columbia mnnufuoturors on tho coast look with favor on a reduotlon of half tho duty on finished lumber or a possible dropping of tho tariff altogether In tho ouse of tho rough product. Thoro uro too many mills on the coast for looal trade, and only a few of them have managed to adapt UiemHolvee to an oxport trado. Thero Is a fair amount of finished cedar go ing to Mexico and fir and spruce are sent In small quantities to the orlonl An Uuropean trade has beon built up In the last two years but even with that and the growing looal coiuiump- tlon the mill Mud it hard to get rid of their atocki as rapidly as It com be manufactured. There la about three billion feet of rough lumber I stocked la Urit.'ah Columbia ooaat ! yerds and the mill owners are reck- I oiling on having tliia over the border I aa soon a the tariff la relueed. Pay 1 Ing leas for their logs and lew for I their labor they will be able to twtl far below Washington prleea. Practically the same condition pre vails In the' mountain mills. All the yards are carrying big atoek as if the owners were assured that the tar iff would bo taken off or at least low ered by the new Payne bill. Special rates already have beon glvon to these mills by the railway and It U stated that dealers In the Dakotas will be able to save about a cent and a half per hundred pounds by taking the British product. A significant phase of this situation is that within the last nine months praotleally every mountain mill has passed under the control of Minneapolis and St. Paul syndicates, which know what will happen when the tariff Is reduced or removed. The general opinion among tho MUCH COMMENT BUT trade here is that Canada will benefit greutl in the change In the lumber tariff and mills aro already working full time to prepare tor tho rush. Sev eral orders lmvo already boon placed from California subject to the rate being reduced. Now York. March 18.
