Settled This Week
Washington, Aug. 14. The whole
tariff revision legislation question
will be settled this week, which in all
probability will mark the closing of
congress Almost all of the members
of both houses are anxious to get
home. 1 '
All the power of the Democratic
party that now controls the house for
the first time in many years and of
the effective Democratic-progressive-Republican
coalition In the senate will
be centered on quick action In the
trio of pending tariff measures. This
means, in the belief of leaders of both
parties, an adjournment possibly by
the end of the week, or at any rate,
within a few days thereafter.
Out of the present tangled situation,
with the three tariff bills wool, free
list and coV.ort In varying stages of
legislation, the wool measure will be
the first to eise. It will be rushed
past Its flnnl stage In the house by
adoption of th' conference report to
day and then Juried over to the
senate for adoption there, If possible,
Tuesday, and then on to the expected
presidential veto, which awaits all the
tariff revision bills.
