Washington, Dec. 29.—The per-
manent tariff commission move-
ment was given a boost today by
conferences at the white house and
the capitol, the return of Repre-
sentative Longworth of Ohio, to
Washington with a complete draft
of a bill creating a commission ami
the announcement of Chairman
Payne, of the house committee on
ways and means, that he expected
such legislation before March 4.
Following a discussion with the
president over various features of
the legislative program for this
session, Mr. Payne announced he
was sure a bill for such a com-
mission, acceptable to both con-
gress and the president, would be
put through the senate and house
before this session ends. Later, at
Mr. Payne's instance, he had a con-
ference with Chairman Kmery of
the tariff board, regarding the
personnel and salaries of the pro-
Mr. Emery contended that the
nature of the work and the char-
acter of the men the commission
would need, made It impossible to
operate advantageously if positions
and salaries were rigidly fixed by
ccngress, his idea being that these
should be fixed by the commission
itself. He suggested that indus-
trial experts might have to be en-
gaged for varying terms at various
compensations. Mr. Payne believed
ihat there should be a legislative
check to the aggregate expendi-
tures, but It is said to agree as to
the necessity of flreedom of action

Embodying features of the tariff
commission bills of Senators Bev-
eridge of Indiana, and La Follet'e
of Wisconsin, introduced at the
last session of congress and of
Congressman Goode of Iowa, and
Lenroot of Wisconsin, at this ses-
sion, and following conferences with
several representatives beflore the
holiday recess, Mr. Longworth, who
Is a member of the ways and
means committee, had drawn a bill
which he expects to introduce next
It creates a commission of five
members, salaried at about $7,500
each, not more than three of the
swme political party, with offices
at Washington, but empowered to
meet anywhere. It is given wide
powers of collection and collation
of facts without authority to make
recommendations, and instead ol
making fixed reports, it can only
report ono special call of congress
or of the president. Its members
are to appear with data before the
senate committee on finance or the
house committee on ways and
means, the two committees which
have to do with tariff legislation.
The commission <is authorized to
require confidential data ftrom cor-
porations as to any subject but
must especially safeguard it from
competitive interests. An import-
ant. provision of the Longworth
bill authorizes the commission to
investigate the cost of production
of all articles covered by the tariff
with special reference to the prices
paid domestic and foreign labor,
the prices paid for raw material*
whether domestic or imported, en-
tering into the manufactured ar-
ticles, the condition of the domes-
tic and foreign markets afflVtlng
the American products Including
detailed information of the cost and
of every element, together with all
other facts, which, in the com-
mission's judgment, will be help-
ful to congress in providing equita-
ble. rates of duty on any articles
and in aiding the president and
three other officials in administer-
ing the custom laws.
One section re-enacts the max-
imum and minimum clause of the
Aldrich-Payne tariff law. Under the
Longworth bill, the five commis-
sioners are to be appointed by the
first for two, three and six terms,
respectively, but these tenures ad-
just themselves to regular six-year
terms flor all.
The ways and means committpe
will take up the commission ques-
tion soon after congress reconvenes.
Some of its members oppose tlu
commission idea, holding that
puts into being another body with
luigh salaries and big general ex-
pense accounts on work l hat should
be done by the department of com-
merce and labor or other regular
departments and all that is neces-
sary is to appropriate to continue
the existence of the present board
through the Taft administration.

FATHER HERE LOOKING
FOR HIS DAUGHTER
Seventeen-Year-Old Girl Left Her
Home in Tulsa Two Weeks
Has any one seen Winnie Jelliff?
Winnie is a 17-year-old girl, light
complected, medium build and wears
a dark red suit. She left the place
at which she was working in Tulsa
two weeks ago and since that time
has not been heard from.
Her father, who is a farmer in the
Creek country near Sapulpa, was in
Enid today looking for her. Miss Jel-
liff was working in a Tulsa restau-
rant and told the proprietor that she
expected to leave, saying she expei't-
ed to go to Enid, Wichita or Oklaho-
ma City. The father learned of his
daughter having left Tulsa Monday
and immediately went to Wichita,
lie could not find her there and de-
cided to come to Enid in search of
his daughter. Thus far he has not
been able to locate her in this city
and will go to Oklahoma City to-
night if he does not get track of her.
"Winnie always liked us," said
Mr. Jelliff today, "and I can con-
ceive of no reason that she would not
let us know where she was going.
She told my son some time ago that
she was going to leave Tulsa' but I
thouhgt I had dissuaded her. Her
mother is almost, distracted by her
disappearance and if I do not find
her here I shall continue the search
till I do find her."

No information was to be had at

San Antonio, Tex., Dec. 19.—The

ment will recommend to the legis-
lature, at its session in January,
that aO.OOO or 100,000 acres of
arid land owned by the state in
West Texas be set aside for the
purpose of establishing a state
game and bird preserve, and for

game and wild Howl. It Is held that

of a game keeper to feed and care

tained out oft revenue collected

out that there are now thousands
