The Demo- cratic revenue bill, designed to raise ap- proximately $200,000,000 additional reve- nue, passed the House by a vote of 540 to 140. Democratic members voted solidly for the bill, and thirty-nin- e Re- publicans and one Independent supported It. The minority succeeded In amending; the bill In several particulars, but no vital change was made In any section ex- cept that relating to the levy of special Internal revenue taxes. The House struck out the tax on bankers. As reported, the bill carried a tax on bankers of tl per thousand of capital, surplus and un divided profits. Several changes were made In the tariff commission section. The salaries of the commissioners were reduced from $10,000 to $7,500, and the prohibition against former members of Congress serving on the commission was climb nated. During the debatn Representative Hill Connecticut, sought to Increase the duties on dyesluffs. His effort failed, but he as serted that the arrival at Haltlmore or the Deutschland with a cargo of dyes In- dicated the determination of Herman) to retain the control of the dyestuffs Indus- try.

TO SUN AND PRESS READERS That many of you were unable to get The Sunday Sun last Sunday seems certain, as early in the day newsdealers were very generally Hold out clean. Because of the incomparably fast-mounti- sale of the weekday issues, we were sure there would be a heavy demand for the Sunday, so increased the edition by more than fifty per cent, over the preceding week, but this increase fell far short of meeting the requirements. I fear we shall not be able to come much nearer the mark for next Sunday unless you come to our aid at once with your order for The Sunday Sun. May I not, there- fore, urge you to leave your order with your newsdealer immediately on reading this notice, so that he can send us a corrected order that will insure you getting The Sunday Sun?
