Washington, March 25.—The Hawley-Smoot tariff bill was passed by the senate late yester-. day by a vote / of fifty-three to thirty-one and now goes to conference with the house for adjustment of -hundreds of differences between the Two congressional branches. The measure,: as it won .the senate's final approval after an eleventh hour arraignment from a half dozen Democrats-and Republican independents, carried a j total of 1,253 amendments to the! house text approved at the other end of the capital'.last May 28, It j has been before the senate since September 4. A • general revision upward of farm duties,'including that on sugar, and scores of increases and reductions in the industrial rate groups, were provided in the j complex document.; It received the support on the final roll call of forty-Six, Republicans and •seven. Democrats. . Twenty-six Democrats and five Republican)! voted against it. House leaders announced shortly after the vote which ended at 4:50 p. m. that the bill would not be brought up in that branch for routine procedure of sending it to conference unti^ next Monday., This respite, they said, was to allow the .435 house members to study the completely rewritten bill. The export debenture plan ol assisting the farmer and.the Simmons-Norris substitute for the existing flexible tariff are expected to iprove the biggest stumbling blocks to [an agreement in conference on the widely varying measures. ' Both were placed in the-bill by the coalition of Democrats and Republicans over, the expressed opposition of -President Hoover. ' 'Senator Borah of Idaho, a leader of the independents, explained that hie vote for the bill in its present form was not to be taken as an indication of what he would do when the conference report is put to a vote. Senator Lafollette' of Wisconsin, another independent leader, assailed the measure as the "worst tariff bill in the nation's history" and as one that "should be known as Grundy's billion dollar tariff bill." Senator Walsh, Democrat, Massachusetts, asserted the bill was "full of impediments to industry," and "it President Hoover listens to the voice ..of industry he will veto it." ' the deaths had been communicated to the American authorities but refused to; make further statements. /I FROM WINDOW Indianapolis Woman Tried to Kill Herself in Kokomo Hotel, i AFTER DRINKING' ORGY The Tribune was: misinformed yesterday regarding the birth of itwins at the home of Mr. and Kokomo, March 25.—A leap in j the dark early Monday | morning | failed to end the lite of Jwaun- eatta Knomas Bosdyk ', former "Bobbed Hair/Bandit" of Indianapolis, who with, two; broken, legs Monday noon was taken back to her home town where! she is said to .have a police record, and also a record for' suicide attempts, j !
