DEMOCRATS IN CAUCUS.
Members of Congress Meet to Formu
late Plans for Next Year.
Washington , Jan. 19. Democrats
elected to the next house assembled
n Washington today for a caucus to
decide upon the legislative policy of
the party and "to devise and further
plans necessary for expediting and son -
( n ring legislation in the sixty-second
congress. " Jubilation over the recent
victory at the polls which gave the
democrats a big majority in the house
Is much In evidence at the conference ,
but is tempered by the knowledge that
the party now faces a serious situa
tion , upon the handling of which the
result of the next presidential elec
tion will largely depend.
It is evident that a majority of the
democratic members of the next-house
agree with Champ Clark , who will bo
speaker , in demanding a revision of
the tariff conducted in the most ex-
peditiousand intelligent way. The
democratic members of the senate
will co-operate with those of the house
in this measure. The Clark plan is
for a revision schedule by schedule ) ,
rather than in a single bill ,
Today's caucus will select a ways
and means committee and a rules
committee , somewhat larger than the
present committee of seven. The
democratic membership In the ways
and means body will likely be In
creased to thirteen , and it is practic
ally certain that Representative Un
derwood of Alabama will bo chairman.
Other members practically agreed
upon are Shackelford of Missouri ,
Dixon of Indiana , Hull or Garrett of
Tennessee , Randall of Texas , James
of Kentucky , Rainey of Illnois , Harrison
risen of New York , Palmer of Penn
sylvania , Kitchin or Pugh of North
Carolina , Cox or Ashbrook of Ohio ,
Martin of Colorado and Peters ol
There is an Intense rivalry for the
places on the committee , owing to the
prospective general revision of the
tariff. The ways and means commit
tee will hold the hearings on the tar
iff schedules , and It is promised that
they will be as full and comprehensive
sivo as those which preceded the fram
ing of the Payne-Aldrich law.
The selection of a parliamentary
clerk to the speaker of the house will
probably be made by the caucus , and
Charles Crisp , son of former Speakoi
Crisp , Is being boomed for the place
Mr. Cripp was parliamentarian for his
father when the famous Crisp bills
wore being developed. Of the fo\\
mentioned for the place , lie is con
sldored to b best qualified by rcasor
of his past experience , and there is
little doubt that ho can have tjie jol
if he will accept it.
