Washington, April The house OTerwhelmlngly adopted the Fordney amendment to the Payne tariff bill striking out the provision for a coun- tervailing duty on lumber. This amendment was pending when OUTLINES CASE OF THE STATE District Attorney Makes Statement i Sampson Murder Trial. Lyons, N. Y., April th trial of Mrs. Georgia Sampson charged with the murder of her bus band, Harry Sampson, was resumed District Attorney Gilbert outlined thi case of the prosecution. Mr. Gilberi declnred that he belftved It to be his duty to see that the rights of the de- fendant were as carefully guarded as those of the people and to put before the Jury all the facts whether thej favored the defendant or riot. Mr. Gilbert declared that such as that which caused Samp- son's death could not have been self- inflicted. Concerning the motive Mr. Gilbert said there would be evidence concerning a letter which had been sent to Mrs. Sampson, %vhlch was found by her husband, who told his father-in-law that he would not live with Mrs. Sampson any longer. On the night before the shooting, Mr. Gilbert said, there was n quarrel over one of the letters and Sampson and his wife had frequent quarrels over her numerous trips away from home. Mr. Gilbert asserted that Sampson mado a will at the solicitation of his of the bill was resumed. wlfo' lnaklns ller the sole beneflclary A parliamentary snarl at once was I encountered as to whether or not i other amendments would be permitted I under the rule adopted. The point I was raised by Mr. Clark of Missouri, the minority leader. A number of i members were Immediately on their j feet endeavoring to put their construe- tlon upon the rule and to allay the im- j pending excitement the chair had the rule read for Information. Messrs. Fitzgerald of New York and Dalzell of Pennsylvania, both on the committee on rules, contended that individual amendments under the rule could be offered. The chair ruled that other amend- ments could be offered, but that the committee amendment offered by Mr. Fordney had precedence. The situa- tion again became clouded by the of- fering of a substitute amendment by Mr. Clark, who desired to speak to it, but the chair ruled that Mr. Fordney was entitled to the fioor. Mr. Ford- ney said he introduced his amendment with great res ret, as the provision It sought to strike out was a meritorious one. "I am offering amendment." he declared, "and will vote fur it, but It causes me- to sweat blood in doing to." Mr. Tawncy of Minnesota jumped up with a substitute. Mr. Clark, who also claimed the floor, was recog- nized. Clark Wants Free Lumber. The Clark substitute, which was tken read, provided for amending sev- eral sections by placing lumber on the free list. Mr. Tawncy contended that two paragraphs could not be covered in one amendment and offered an entire substitute for the lumber schedule, modifying hut retaining the duty. The chair ruled that the Fordney amendment had precedence. Against the protests ot Mr. Tawney the chair recognized Mr. De Arinond of Missouri for an amendment as a substitute to the countervailing pro- vision providing for the free admis- sion of lumber from all parts of the Western hemisphere. The De Armond amendment was lost, 131 to 178, thirty Democrats voting with the Republic- ans. I The Fordney amendment was-over adopted by a viva voce vote. Mr. Tawney at once reoffered his amendment, which, he said, would take the duty off all lumber included In paragraph 197 of the bill, except finished lumber, the duty on which would be materially reduced. He would later, he said, offer an amend- ment placing rough lumber on the free list The Tawney amendment was lost on division, 151 to 173, party align- ments being badly broken. A vote by tellers on his demand also resulted in being lost. 170 to 176. A motion by Mr. Clark of Missouri to strike out all of paragraph 197 of the lumber schedule also was defeat- ed, 118 to 157. Further amendments by Mr. Taw- ney adding to the free list the lumber described In paragraph 196 were like- wise lost An amendment by Mr. Scott (Kan.) fixing a duty of 10 per cent ad valorem on raw; hides was, on division in the house, lost. 106 to 166. of his estate.
