The dissolution of the chamber Is ex pected early in 1924. The Messag- gero says Premier Mussolini decided upon the dissolution so as to appeal to the country, the elections for a new chamber of deputies to be held in .the sprin'g. Atlanta.—WIBt gave promise of an adjustment of the differences between the house and senate over the pro posed income tax received a hard jolt when the senate positively recorded its opposition to a conference report that sought to adjust the differences between the two houses. On a record vote the senate reject ed recommendations that it recede from its position with reference to the word “net” in the text of the original measure, and to the “credit clause,” which the bill originally con tained. Although a two • thirds vote was required to accept either of the forty going proposals of the conference committee, the vote on one Indicated a bare majority of one, and on the other there was a tie. In both in stances approval of the conference report by a two-thirds vote fell thir teen votes short of the required num ber. The report of the conference com mittee was read in the house just before the noon recess, and Speaker Neill announced that he would call the report up for a vote later, stating that authority to set the .time had been given him in a report of the rules committee previously adopted by the house, and he was havipg the con ference committee’s report read mere ly for the purpose of giving the mem- members an opportunity to think over the report The conference report to which the senate baa disagreed contains four recommendations, as follows: 1. That the senate accept the house amendment striking the word “net” from the original bllL I. That the senate aeoept the house .amendment striking the so-called “credit clause” from the measure. . 8. That the house recede from its amendment striking the scale of ex emptions provided in the original bill. 4. That the text of the original bill be amended by reducing the ad valo rem tax rate from three mills to two mills. The Benate rejected the fourth proposition also after a significant remark by President Carswell to the effect that under the rules the rec ommendation had no place in the conference report, since it involved a matter not in dispute between the two houses. He said, however, he had no disposition to deny the senate an opportunity to express Itself and would, therefore, submit the recom mendation. It was defeated by a vote 33 to 8, Tag senate accepted by unanimous consent the one recommendation of the report in which the house receded from its amendment respecting ex emptions. oom NMB9MHnMWnaRBM0mMMnH igh Grade ■■■ | We are On the Job from January to • January, twelve months each year.
