Congressional Committee Reports Fa- vorably OH the Pleasure to lui- pow Tax on Dealers. Its Rnactment Into Law Would Knock Oat the Backet and drain Gam- of the WA.srn.VGT.oy, April 9. Chairman Punstou, orf House Committee on submitted a report yester- day recommending the passage of the Butterworth bill to prevent dealing in options and futures, by imposing special tax00 on dealers in thorn. The report s signed by the full committee. The report states that the bill is intended to apply to that class of transactions con- ducted in the bucket shops and grain >its of the country known as "puts and including the whole range of mere speculative gambling In fictitious !arm products. "It does not affect in- says the report, "any legit- mate trade or dealer in farm staples. [t seeks to and does impose an internal revenue tax upon those dealers in train, corn, cotton and por'c who, as a rule, never see, own or lie a peck or pound of the articles tLcy soil. It applies to dealers whose transactions Save the least possible reference to the supply, and still less refercnco to the demand for consumption; w ho are not concerned whether the harvests are blighted or bountiful. "The bill which in terms trans- actions for future delivery which are in- nocent in themselves and do no harm to anyone, is yet intended to reach that class of speculators who sell what they do not own; who sell with no purpose or or deliver what they sell; who require little capital or stock in trade and yet who sell in the bucket shops and pits of the United States every thirty days more wheat than is grown in the whole world in, one year; thus in a great measure de- stroying legitimate trade and driving merchants and traders engaged therein from the field and forcing the prica ol farm products below the cost of produc- tion, rendering the calling of the farmer unprofitable and degrading toil." The committee offers an amendment to the bill providing act shall not apply to any contracts or agree- ments for the future delivery of any of the articles mentioned in tho bill, ma.lc with t'je United States or any State, county or municipality, nor to the con- tracts or agreements made by farmers for thj sale and delivery of any of these articles in actual course of production by farmers at the time of making tb e contract. The committee adds that it has no doubt of the constitutionality of the measure. A FIEKCE BLAZE. Nine Dvelllnin and Two of a Ttir ing Association Burned. LEXTNGTOX, Ky., April 9.

Marsh then bought up as much on credit as he possibly could, stored it in the warehouses and borrowed money on tbe receipts. In this way he got to- gether about This was placed in Lane's bands to be held for Marsh until after the failure of the firm. For his services Lane was to get When the failure of the firm was nounced Marsh confessed to tbe cred- itors that he bad been specu- lating in stocks and showed re- ceipts from Lane to prove his assertion. While this was being inves- tigated Lane took all of the S150.- 000 and left the country. Marsh fol- lowed him to Europe, but was unable to find him. In the meantime the credi- tors of the firm put detectives on Lane's track and it is understood they found him and induced him to give up 000.
