MAY MEET WITH OBSTRUCTION
Reapportionment and Tariff Board
Measures Likely to Cause Fights
Events Tending Toward
Washington, Dec 5. Upon the
temper of the Democratic leaders de
pends entirely the amount and the
character of the legislation to be en
acted into law at the last session of
the 61st congress, which convened at
noon today. According to all reports.
President Taft and his advisers have
outlined an ambitious program. How
much of it he may be able to put
through is a problem no one at this
early day would be justified in pre
dicting. The short session cf a congress ex
pires by constitutional limitation in
three months. There usually Is a holi
day recess that consumes a fortnight.
Adjournments over from Friday to
Monday cause a loss of valuable time,
and in the end, by reason of these
various causes, there remain only
about sixty working das for the con
gress, reduced to half that in the
house as a result of the new rules.
Within this short space experience has
proved that it is well nigh impossi
ble to do more than enact the supply

for the maintenance and support of
the various branches of tne govern

close. It is in the senate, therefore,
that the danger comes if obstacles
are thown in the way of an outlined
legislative program. In the face of
all this the administration has mapped
out a program that will require the
most adroit politic;.! and legislative
management to bring it to fruition.
May Block Reapportionment.
Chief among the matters attracting
attention, in view of the result of the
recent elections, is the proposed reaj
portionment. This is the determina
tion of the allottmcnt of members of
the house of representatives to the
varioes states, based upon the popu
lation ascertained by each decennial
census. While this ought not to be a
political question, it invariably in
volves politics, and the Republicans
are anxious to deal with it while they
control bath houses of congress. It
is not essential that this new reap
lortionment be enacted into law at
this session, and if a bill considered
unfair he submitted, the Democrats
in the senate may be counted upon to
prevent its conclusion before March
A big fight Is promised with regard
to the tariff board for which the presi
dent will ask a still larger appropria
tion and. incidentally, increased au
thority in the matter of conducting
its inquiries and making its investiga
tions both at home and abroad. Many
leading Democrats, like Senator Rai
ley. for instance, are opposed to the
tariff commission plan and will an
tagonize this. The president is very
earnest in this matter. Then, too,
there are many men in both parties
who believe the tariff should le re
moved from politics entirely, and
men of this view hoid that this may
be accomplished through a commis
sion aud are inclined to give it a
If the effort threatened by Senator
Callinger and others to push through
a ship subsidy bill at the short ses

precipitate a time-consuming contest.
The Democrats are opftosed to this
ort of legislation.
Small Hope for Currency Bill.
It does not appear likely that Mr.
ldrich will be able to put through
anything in the shape of a revision
of the currency laws at the coming
session, although he has been cred
ited with having that in mind. Time
will be too short to admit of full and
free consideration of to important a

Lorlmer Report Ready.
The Lorimer bribery charges, grow
ing out of the allegations that the
Illinois senator was elected through
the corrupt use of money, were in
vestigated by a senatorial committee
during the summer-rfnd its report is
ready. The impression here is that
the committee did not find the charges

sufficient importance to warrant an
Another inquiry, growing out of
charge made by Senator Gore on the
tloor of the senate, was made during
the recess. This charge involved the
use of money and the offer of alleged

If one attempted to predict what
will be done at the present session, it
would be safe only to prophesy that
the appropriation bills and incidental
measures necessary to the ordinary
conduct of the government will be
enacted into law. There will be much
talk and very little action.
Extra Session is Predicted.
Leaders among the Republicans, as
i well as among the Democrats, arc
predicting that events are tending to
ward an extra session of the new
congress, either immediately on the
expiration of this session, or early in
the summer. These leaders believe
that if President Taft does not call
such a session for the consideration
of a revision of the tariff schedules.
the Democratic or Republican leaders
I may force an extra session by holding
up the passage of the necessary aj
' propriation bills.
The Democratic leaders believe, at
least some of them, that an extra
session for the consideration of the
tariff schedules would be fatal to the
Republicans, because whatever the
Democratic majority in the house
might do would be blocked by the Re
publican senate. Some of the Repub
lican leaders say that an extra ses
sion would be fatal to Democrats on
the Republican theory that the "Dem
ocratic party can be counted on to do
the wrbng thing at the right time."
and that if the tariff schedules are
revised the Democrats will make
some kind of blunder.
It Is indeed seldom that two par
ties, at the same time, believe that
an extra session will be of advantage
to each. Nearly everything done at
this session will be with an eye single
to a point of advantage from which
the campaign to capture the White
House in 1912 can be conducted.
Dark Skins and Malaria.
In a recent issue of a daily paper
we find it stated on the anonymous
authority of a well known London
doctor that blackness of the skin,
however produced, protects against
malaria, and It is said that "if you
are going to a country where malaria
is rife stain yourself ail over with
walnut juice, or black yourself with
burnt cork and you will be less liable
to catch the disease."
And the explanation is given that
the browning of the skin prevents
the actinic rays of sunlight penetrat
ing the skin and so helping the malar
ial parasite to mature: and therefore
we arc told "If white men had arti
ficially colored skins or even wore
black underclothing they would be in
the same position as the natives pro
tected to a certain extent against the
malarial parasite maturing."
We should be interested to know on
what facts the "well known London
doctor" bases his statement. It is
true that on the whole, the colored
races suffer less severely from .ma
laria than the white races, but we are
not aware of any evidence which even
suggests that this is due to the color
of the skin. Of course it is possible
that the staining of the skin with
walnut juice or burnt cork may have
a deterrent effect on the mosquito
and so prevent the inoculation of the
parasite, but this, we should imagine,
was more than doubtful. The immu
nity of the savage races is probably
the result of evolution by selection.
