AVERAGE DUTY 18 TO 20 PER CENT IN FORDNEY TARIFF BILL PRESENTED According To Unofficial ; Estimates Made Follow- ing Introduction of the I Measure in House i Slightly Below Payne-; Aldrich Measure, Says Chairman Fordney , DEMOCRATS , PREPARING OWN REPORT Chairman Fordney Is Preparing Statement Which He Expects Will Clear Up Many of the Doubtful i Points in the Measure Ways and Means Committee to Report Next Wednesday , :-;'.Vo:..;-;V : ' ' ' '-'V'. Washington, D. C, June 30. The average duty in the administration's permanent tariff bill, introduced yesterday iti the House, will jrange between 18 and 20 per cent, according to unofficial estimates, as compared with 18.55 in the Payne-Aldrieh bill, Chairman Fordney of the ways and means committee declared to-day. The Underwood average rate, die added, w as six per cent and the Dingley average 26V4 per cent. ''But when we are able to work out accurately the correct figure it will be found that the new bill will run slightly below the Payne-Aldrich measure," he said. "On manufactured wool our rate is less than schedule K." . . He is preparing a statement in ad-. vance of his formal re'port which he expects will clear up many doubtful points in "the bill. t Under a change of plans to-day the jneasure. will not be considered by the lull committee until Wednesday, it will be reported Wednesday. Democratic members of the commitee already are at work on a minority report in the hope of .submitting it along with the .majority views. The bill repeals the Canadian reciprocity government which has beeu operative since 1010. The president, under the new powers given him by the measure, is able, however, to proceed immediately after passage of the bill towards making new reciprocal trade agreements with any country with whom such an agreement would be profitable to the United States. Many other repealing provisions are contained in the bill, but most of them deal with technical matters. The measure also alters in a more or less degree about half of the customs laws covering the actual passage of commodities through customs houses, methods of Bssossine duties and other administra tive definitions for the guidance of the customs force. - In connection with the appraisal of values of shipments, the bill intro duces a new feature, in authorizin roftiims officers to obtain verified statements of production costs "where such is deenved necessary. No machinery is provided for! the purpose, however, other than that the officers can de mand affadivits covering the information they seek. Another feature of the draft is the inclusion of many commodities not listed in previous tariff bills. A majority of these, however, are the products of recent inventions and of developments since the Underwood measure was passed in 1913. STOCKS IN RAPID BREAK Because of Higher Duties in Fordney ..

Several boys were in swimming at the time and a' few were on the bank dresifJ ing when thelad called for help. Ferd Guenthner, another youngster swimming there at the. time, went to the assistance of his friend and being unable to hold the laft very long also called for help. It had been a habit-of- the swimmers at this place to call for help as a joke and the swimmers . thought that this was another case of that kind and did not make any attempt to help the two boys for some time. Gitenthner finally convinced tjie rest of them that Malnati was drown- . ing and they started out to assist him. When Guenthner, who had becoriie greatly weakened, thought that the rescuers had taken hold of his friend he released the body and when he reached shore discovered that the other boys had not taken hold of the body f ns he had expected. When it was discovered the lad was lost, a large crowd collected on the bank and several parties searched the river with grap-nlinir hooks. After an hour's search .
