Tariff revision plans of the ways
and means committee of the next
congress havo been announced by
Representative Underwood of Ala
bama, who will head that comimttee
In the house. Mr. Underwood said
thnt, "assuming that there was to
bo an extra session of congress," the
committee on the democratic side
of the house was charged with tho
responsibility of preparing tariff
legislation, and all that there was
asked between now and December
was for ft cleric, statistician and a
stenographic clerk for the commit
tee. The democrats, he said, are not
asking money for an independent in
vestigation. "We went into a very
thorough investigation of the tariff
question eighteen months ago," he
said. "Tho witnesses that appeared
before the committee then, were im
partially examined on both sides.

eighteen months old. We simply

before you gentlemen when you
wrote the Payne tariff bill, and write
a tariff .bill in accordance with our

country may denounce the treaty at
tho end of six months if it fails to
operato as expected. "Because it
embodies this radical departure from
the existing treaty and touches the
question of the deepest importance
and interest to the Pacific slope,"
says an Associated Press dispatch,
"the injection of this convention into
tho closing hours of the sixty-first
congress created a sensation. That
the new treaty will encounter opposi
tion seems certain."
