( Arbitrators at Work Along
BATCHING UP DIFFERENCES.
Compromise Committee Tries to Ef
fect a Settlement of the Fight.
First Conference Not Productive of
Washington , March 14. The work
of harmonizing the conflict over Cuban
reciprocity has progressed so far that
a committee of conferees or arbitrat
ors representing the two sides of the
controversy assembled to frame a
compromise agreement. The meet
ing occurred In the private quarters
.of the ways and means committee/ / '
rroom , with Chairman Payne and Rep
resentatives Dalzell and Cannon present -
-ent In behalf of the ways and means
.reciprocal element , while five mem
bers of the opposition , namely Repre
sentatives Metcalf of California , Dick
. and Taylor of Ohio , Fordney of Mich
igan and Morris of Minnesota , acted
. as arbitrators In behalf of the Repub
licans who have resisted the ways
and means' original plan of 20 per
cent reciprocity for an unlimited pc-
. -The conference lasted about two
hours and was not productive of final
. results , an adjournment being taken
until 2 p. m. All plans of compromise
which have been suggested were re
viewed , particularly that limiting the
' reciprocity period until December , '
1903. 6eyond discussing the several
plans no action was taken. When
the conference closed It was stated
that the discussion had been along
such harmonious lines that an agree
ment seemed assured. Chairman
Payne and his associates seemed to
bo less confident than the other con
ferees that an agreement was In sight.
'Prior to the meeting of the arbitrators
the element opposing the ways and
means plan assembled to determine
on a course of action. It was decided
to name live conferees Instead of
three , In order to make the body more
representative of the various sections
interested. It also was deemed deslr-
.able not to give the conferees final
power to make terms , but only to con
sider and report back. This precau
tion was taken in order that there ,
might be a full understanding of the
compromise plan by all of those who
opposed the original ways and means

unobjected bills yesterday , the senate
resumed consideration of the ship sub
sidy measure. Berry ( Ark. ) , a mem

ing measure. Perkins ( Cal. ) , another
member of the commerce committee ,

' in support of the bill , maintaining that
