Now York Governor Woodrow Wil
son has announced that immediately
after his inauguration as president of
tho United States ho would call an ex
traordinary session of congress to
convene not later than April 15, for
tho purposo of roviwlng tho tariff. To
set at rest In tho meantlmo specula
tion as to what ho would do with re
gard to tariff rovislou ho issued the
"I shall call congress together In
extraordinary session not later than
April 15. 1 shall do this not only be
causo I think that tho pledges of the
party ought to be redeemed as
promptly as possible, but also becauso
I know it to bo in tho Interest of
business that all uncertainty as to
what tho particular ItoniB of tariff re
vision aro to bo should bo removed
as soon as possible"
Beyond this brief announcement the
governor said ho had nothing further
to say. Most of tho opinions ho had
received from public men seemed to
bo in favor of an extra session, ho de
clared. Hastens Announcement
Tho governor did not intend to ex
press himself nbout an extra session
so soon after his election. Although
ho has favored tho Idea of an extra
session bocauso tho present arrange
ment would not bring tho now con
gress into Bcsslon until thlrteon
months after its election, ho had
promised to spend moro timo In as
certaining public opinion.
Tho governor wub Impressed by the
argument that with an early arrange
ment democratic loadors In congress
could begin to take counsel at an ear
ly dato bo that much of tho prelimi
nary detail could bo worked out be
fore congress convened on April 15.
Tho governor was prompted incident
ally in making his early announce
ment by tho fact that many mombora
of congress wero desirous of arrang
ing for accommodations In Washing
ton for tho extra session, if thero vas
to bo one.
Immediately upon his election tho
govornor mado up his mind to wait
until after ho returned from his vaca
tion beforo making known his attl
tudo, but upon finding, as ho said, that
opinion In favor of a special session
waB practically unanimous, he felt no
hesitation nbout making public his
