SENATE TAX BILL REPORT DEFENDS COTS 10 Republicans Sign Committee Inheritance Levy Repeal. Finding;. Which Discusses E re rr WASHINGTON. Jan. 22. The report of the Senate Finance 'orn- mittee ot: the tax reduction bill as submitted to the Senate oda b Chairman Smoot. defended repeal of the Inheritance tax on the ground that this field pf taxation should be left entirely to state? except ' emergencies. Only the 10 Republican members r. the committee .:igned thi -eport Senators King of Utah ar;d Jcnea New Mexico. Democrats, ucve indicated they would fiio feparate reports, but the other Demo -ats. cn the committee have indi-ated agreement with most of the features of the bill. Further discussing lta proposed repeal of the inheritance- tax. against which a stubborn flsht Is in prospect, the committee majority declared adoption by the House- of a provision mowing feu per cort credit for paymen.f of State inheritance taxe. constituted an admission that only 20 per cent of the l'ederal ley was needed The report said tbd committee was unanimous for reductior of the maximum surtax rate from 40 to 20 per cent, as approved cy the Hou.e. This figure was described as "the lowest practicable rate. and the report added: "The committee has not ap- Droaehed the matter from the standpoint of benefiting tho ex tremely wealthy." Commenting on the committee'! decision to Increase the corporation tax as an offset to repeal of the capital stock levy, the report promised "a thorough study of the situation through the Joint committee proposed by the bill in the hope that some method will be devised whereby inequalities between the different business methods may be obviated." "The effect of the small In crease in the corporation income tax is to continue the capital stock fax upon those corporations which have a net Income, but to base the tax upon income (as a proper criterion of the value of the privilege) rather than upon the corporate assets." it added "Such corporations thereby are relieved from the necessity of filing two returns and of keeping -separate accounting records." Repeal of the provision lor publicity of Income tax returns was dis missed with the comment that the committee "has no e"idence before It of any useful purpose served" by th'e publicity provision. OPERATORS REJECT NEW BASIS FOR HARD COAL STRIKE PARLEY Kv th AKoci.-it"l Pres PHILADELPHIA. Jan. 22. The latest effort to end the coal strike has apparently failed Anthracite mine operators made known here today that they would not re-enter negotiations with the mine workers to end the long suspension on tho basis of the plan proposed by the Scranton Times. President John L. Iewls of the miners' union bad announced ear Mt in the day at Scranton that he was willing to again go into conference on th basis of the latest proposal with certain suggestions to make. The plan, the operators announced, did not "contain anything that had not oeen thoroughly threshed out in previous conferences. For this reason it does t afford a basis for renewal of negotiations." The new plan provides for an immediate return to work of th miners, a five-year contract the old wage scale to continue -Unless changes are made by agrement at a conference which mav be oi'lert 60 days before two years have! elapsed from the signing of the contract, and the miners to remain at work until the end of tlse five-year term, regardless of whther the conciliators agree upon a change in the wage scale.

That meant only that they belonged to her in case of his death in other words, he was trying to evade the inheritance tax. in case he should die. and the income tax while he lived."

' FKl DAY EVENING, Senate to Vote CoBtlnurd'trom age One. not acting in good fuitn when thry hold up the business of the nation dav after dav. filling tho record with irrelevant matter, calling rolls, wasting the time of this body anii th rmi.fir- J "Now when the issue ia raised after three years, there are some I who would lay it aside and take up (the tax bill. I agree wi'h tne Senator from Nebraska. (Norri-j) that there aro issues in the ta bill that will not be speedily settled. "If you rut off the vote on the World Court, the enemies of the Court naturally will prolong the debate on the tax bill H you waul to psus the tax bill with reasonable promptness, get the World Court out of the way and then there will be no motive for a filibuster on tho tax bill." Kob:i!so:i then, after a consultation with leaders tor and against the Court, offered Ms proposed unanimous consent agreement that, beginning on Feb. 10. debate should be limited to one speech of not mow than 30 minutes by ;ach Senator on the World Court resolution or any reservation or amendment thereto. This, said Robinson, was substantially the proposal that had been pre-iousjy made bv Senator Torah. arch en emy of the Co'-ir'. 1-iorah appeared satisfied. At Itast voiced v open objection, but the best laid plans of the Senate leaders can be upset even by a Blease. The wild man from South Carolina, who has -said that he never under any conditions would enter Into an agreement to limit debate. had risen during the coloquy of the leaders and stood waiting. Senator Mose of New Hampshire, of the anti-Court faction spoke to him. but whether to encourage or deter iim was not ap parent Please waved him aside. Blrase Iiufors Objection. Vice President Dawes put the carefully framed agreement before the Senate. "I object." boomed Eiease. That sent the agreement into the discard and the cloture petition, al ready prepared, began circulating Senator Reed ot" Missouri was not in the chamber ot the time but entered a moment later and egan conferring wTrh his a'ssocl ates of the anti court faction. Earlier in the debat-?. which crackled throughout with tonsit of feeling. Senator Fat Harrison ( Dem ) of Mississippi made a characteristic speech in which he I.vid the blame for the present state of affairs on the Republican sid of the chamber He admonished the Republican leaders to get to tether and fix n date for settling the World Court question, which re said, was usurping the place of a bill In which the people were much more interested the tax bill. "Fix some date, in April. Mav June or July, to vote on the World Court." said Harrison "You talk about wearing out the opposition to the court You can't do it. Thev are strategists." While ptofefs-ng his own friendship for the co:rf, Harrison said that if an agreement on a voting date could not be reached, the World Court resolution ought to be sidetracked and the tax bill taken up. Makes Partisan Capital "I suggest to the Senator from Kansas (Curtis) and the Senator from Wisconsin (Lcnroot) that they try to get together." he said "If it takes the President to move you, I hope he will ten you what to do. He's smart enough." Harrison's speech waa obviously an effort to make partisan capital out of the embarrassment of the administration forces L nroot at once denied that there was any partisanship in connection with either the World Court or the tax bill. Smoot, with tears in his voice, pleaded for early action on the tax bill. This got a rise out of Senator Norri.s. who declared it was "unfair and almost unheard of" to attempt to maneuver the Senate into a position where the tax bill would have to be hurriedly-disposed of. Smoot said that the whole country was learning f-r the passage of the tax bill. Norris denied tho right of tho Senator from I'tuh to speak for the whole country. He thought that the demand for the tax bill was romin? very largely from "millionaires. corporations and dead men's families." Smoot for Taxes Iirsf. Smoot said that h- vvas for th; World Court, but thought It much more important to got a vote on tax reduction. His colleague. King, asked him if he did not know that if the ! w oriu Louri w as passed over at this time. the enemies (.f th Court would prolong the debate on the tax bill up into next summer and then demand adjournment without action on the court. So the debate ran on, with six or seven Senators on their feet at the same time, until Minority Leader Robinson crashed into the discussion with his demand for an agreement on limitation of the court debate.

Senator Reed (Dtrn.) of Mis sourl, who was to have resumed the speech that he btgan on Tuea lay and continued on Wednesdav and yesterday, gave way to Borah but held himself in readiness to take up the Durceu later id th day or tomorrow.

In an effort to wear out the minority opposing he court, administration leaders called the Senate iato session at 11 o'clock today an hour earlier .han usual, and planned to keep the session going till 6 o'clock tonight.

As Mrs Wilson took ber seat Borah was saying. "I say that If the Leapue had been ba-'ed upon he plans that Wood row Wilson contended for. it would have beer a creat help to Europe." Borah, with the wife of the dead President listening, went on 1.1 tell how Woodrow Wilson at Paris had sought to nullify the effects of the secret treaties among the allies Injustice to Name of Wilson. "It would be a supreme njus tice to the name and memo-? of Woodrow Wilson." he said "to assume that he would advocate wha is nov happening under he mandates from the League of NaM. ns" Drawing a contrast between tht World Court and the Supreme Court of the United States. Borah said the former depended on force to carry out its edicts while tho latter railed on moral sanction Fse of force to carry out a Su preme Court decision against on-of the states, he said, would mear war. and the same result would follow employment of armed forc-fo carry out the edicts of the worlJ tribunal. Senator Lenroot (Rep.) of Wis consin disputed this view. The success of the World Court. Len root said depends In a great meas ure on the force of public opinion and not on military force. "If force is anywhere provided for in a scheme for peace, it ultimately will dominate," replied Borah. Domination of C K. by Uurope Feared by Ilecd.

He qualified the accusation in the next sentence by saying that "some" of the countries to which the United States lent money were dishonest. Reed argued that i: the United States should enter the World Court, we might corne under the domination or foreign powers. "Let us see." he said, "for some reason we find it necessai. to invade Mexico. The Council pro ceeds then to sit on 01 case, although we are not a member, but I shall show you later on that that does not make any difference. The council orders us to withdraw our troops from Mexico. What do you think we w ill Jo. if we have a red-blooded President? What do you think Theodore Roosevelt would have done under such circumstances? What do you think Grover Cleveland would have done under such circumstances? "God knows what an anem'e pacifist might do; but I know what an American would do. he would issue a call to arms and he would tell Europe. Asia and Afalca, the blacks, and the browns, and the yellows of the earth, the Christians, and the Turks, and the infidels, the fire worshipers, and worshipers who make up this league, that we would stand along our seagirt chores and redden all its tides with the blood of any foe that dare set foot uon our shores." Conjures Up Uorrors. The rest of Reed's speech was in much the same strain. It dealt very largely with horrors conjure 1 up by the Senator from what is known as the Benes protocol, a protocol which was not adopted Reed said that it came within one vote of acceptance and "may be accepted at any hour." "This court." he continued. "Is created by a combination of nations that propose fire and sword and starvation for all who oppose their imperious will. Men would take America across the ocean and place her into that conspiracy nd make hci -espor 'Me to t" juria- distion.

BUSINESS ON PARIS BOURSE SUSPENDED IN TAX PROTEST PARIS, Jan. 22. Buslnew 01, the Paris Bourse was suspended to. day in protest against the proposed increase in taxation on Bonne operations. The traders take the position that such an increase is bound to restrict business and entail the dismissal of many employes. Ta I clerks employed in recording quo-Stations took the InitiaUve, inviting the other employes to cease work for the day. No untoward incident had been reported up to early afternoon. The brokers, joining the clerks in their protest, issued a communique declaring the proposed taxation would result in virtual suspension of bourse transactions and have a profound effect upon the financial life of the country Itself. It ia estimated that the Government will lose several mJlllos francs today through cessation of the bourse business as taxed under the present law.
