Washington. April 1.—A brond new Standard Oil "joker" was discovered in a new place in the Payne Tariff bill today. The Payne bill, like the Ding- ley law. ostensibly places petro- leum on the free list for the ben- efit of the consumer. But there is a provision which imposes a duty on all petroleum, crude or refined, imported from any coun- try which collects a duty on pe- troleum exported from this coun- try. That duty is equal in amount to the import duty of the coun- try sending us the oil. It is a fact that every country an the world which produces pe- troleum exacts such a duty, and in most eases that duty makes importation to this country pro bibitive. So instead of having this necessity of ilfe on free list, it is in reality on the dutiable list at a rate so high as to make im- ...
