    FIXIi THE DATE
OF EXTRA SESSION
Conferences at White House May
Agree Upon April 4.
IT SEEMS INEVITABLE NOW
i
Plan to Secure Adverse Vote on Reci
procity Agreement in Senate
Did Not Please Presi
dent Taft.
Washington, Feb. 2S.—It is conced
ed that something even more cata
clysmic than the president’s suggest
ed earthquake would be necessary to
stave off the threatened extra session
of congress.
The filibuster in the Lorimer ease
killed practically the last hope of get
ting the reciprocity agreement
through at the present session.
President Taft summoned into con
ference at the White House half-a
dozen leaders on the question of
agreeing on a date for the commenc
ing of the special session. April -1 is
the tentative date fixed. Chairman
Payne of the ways and means com
mittee and Representatives Dalzell,
Weeks and Gillette talked the flatter
over with the president and were re
quested to ascertain the sentiment ol
the republican members of the next
house on a fit date and report at the
White House as soon as possible.
The president will confer with a
like group of republican leaders of the
senate on a date for the assembling
of the new congress. The proclama
tion is practically ready and will be
lFSued immediately after adjournment
on Saturday. The president has aban
doned hope. Even the senate leaders,
who have clung to the hope that the
extra session should be averted, have
now thrown up their hands. Senator
Smoot, coming from a conference with
the president, said:
"I regard a special session as inev
itable now."
An effort was made by Smoot, Root
and others to avert the extra session
and the plan involved the defeat ol
the reciprocity agreement. Those sen
ators visited the White House and
asked the president if it would be
satisfactory to him if he would aban
done the extra session if a vote was
had on reciprocity, even though that
vote defeated the agreement.
The secret plan was to get enough
senators, democrats as well as repub
Means, who are averse to reciprocity,
to vote against the agreements and
thus end the matter. The president
informed them curtly that he would
not be satisfied if reciprocity was
beaten
OUR “MEAT TRUST” NOT WANTED
Australia Has Served Notice That
Drastic Action Will Follow At
tempt to Locate There.
Melbourne, Australia, Feb 28.—The
Commonwealth of Australia served
notice on the business world that it
would not harbor foreign “trusts.'
The following memorandum on the
subject was given to the press by Sit
R. W. Rest, minister of trade and ctis
toms:
“For several months it has been an
open secret that representatives c.
the American meat trust have beer,
visiting Australia, ostensibly with the
object of extending its operations
here. The government is determined
to take immediate and drastic action
to discourage and, if necessary, to
prohibit its operations in Australia,
it is not proposed to wait until the
combine secures vested interests ir
this country.
“The action of the government will
extend to trust operations in Austra
lia. whether conducted directly or In
directly, and will not permit the rep
etition in Australia of the scandals
and merciless methods characterizing
monopolies in other parts of the
world."

LEADS FILIBUSTER
Makes Demand for Vote On the
Tariff Board Bid.
A TEST OF ENDURANCE NOW
As Soon as the Speech Making Stops
a Vote Will Be Taken
on the Lorimer
Case.
Washington, Feb. 28.—The senate
by refusing to take a recess indicated
Its willingness to enter upon the con
test of endurance which became inev
itable with the declaration of Senator
Cummins that he would not agree to
vote on the Lorimer case unless there
was also an agreement to vote on
the tariff board bill. To that Mr
Hailey would not agree.
Until that time no senator would
admit that a filibuster was in progress
against a vote on the Lorimer reso
tut ion, but that fiction was dropped
when Hailey made his latest demand
for a vote and Cummins answered it
"1 am perfectly willing,” Mr. Cum
mins said, “that there shall be a vote
on this resolution, if there shall at
the same time be an agreement to
vote on the bill creating a permanent
tariff board. If 1 cannot get such i u
agreement 1 make no concealment o.
my intention to do everything in my
power, within (he -limits of pail;
mentary procedure to prevent a vot<
on the Lorimer case.”
Mr. Bailey accepted the challenge
It is manifest,” he said, "that then
must be a conte.-t of endurance and 1
hope the senate will not adjourn"
Six hours of almost uninterrupted
-peech making followed Senatoi
Percy led off with a speech on the
election of senators by popular vote
He was followed by Senator Simmons
on the same subject, and then Sen
ator Bourne spoke a couple of hours
on the Oregon plan of popular gov
eminent. Bourne was relieved by
Senator Smith of South Carolina- who
ook reciprocity for his text and man
aged to pass the lime until 10 o'clock,
when the first skirmish took plact
At that hour Senator Bailey niadi
the first play for position by moving
that when the vote on the pending
resolution should be taken it should
ne by yeas and nays. This was car
ried, but not without a protest, an
appeal from the chairman and a di
vision By the adoption of this mo
tion the Larimer forces are in a sira*
gic position, all preliminaries being
out of the way of a vote which is in
order the minute the debate stops
