Sept. 4 — The duty of *123 per thousand proposed by ths Senate Finance Committee for com- I mon brick Imported Into this coun- | try. will not effect Inland producer* and will besreflt Hudson River pro- , duerra. ths committee stated today in its report on the measure. | The reasoning of the committee ' Is substantially that of the New Yorkers who presented their case to membeis of Congress here dur ­ ing discussion of the bill, despite tbe f act that they did not receive as high a duty as requested . “Comparatively little forelg»> building brick la used In this coun ­ try,\ the committee said In its for ­ mal report, “ except the brick, tor the most -part from Belgium.

The i Importation of brick free of duly enables Importers to sell the for ­ eign product In that market at a , price considerably below the price at which the domestic producers would have to sell In\ order to man- ■ ufacture at a profit \Because of comparatively high transportation coats. Imported brick does not move to Inland points, and accordingly the proposed duty of *123 per thousand would, not af ­ fect the price* for that commodity at points distant from the aea- board . “ It would, however, benefit the producer* In the Hudson river dis ­ trict who sell practically their to ­ tal output In New York City.* CO-OPERATION WANTED New York.
