THE WORK WILL BE RUSHED
Democrats and Progressives Want
Quick Action With the Object
of Getting Home.
Washington. The whole tariff re
vision legislation question will be set
tled this week, which in all probabili
ty will mark the closing of congress.
Almost all of the members of both
houses are anxious to get home, de
spite the vociferations of the revision
ists that they willingly would remain
in session until autumn if the legisla
tion they want could be enacted.
All the power of the democratic par
ty, and of the effective democratic
progressive republican coalition in the
senate will be centered on quick ac
tion in the trio of pending tariff meas
ures. This means, in the belief of
leaders of both parties, an adjourn
ment possibly by the end of the week,
or at any rate, within a few days
Out of the present tangled situation,
with the three tariff bills wool, free
list and cotton, varying stages of leg
islation, the wool measure will be the
first to emerge. A complete agree
ment between the two houses has
been reached on this bit of legisla
tion, which provides for a basic aver
age duty of 29 per cent ad valorem on
raw wool, with the wool classification
provisions identically as framed by
Democratic Leader Underwood of the
house, making a flat tariff on all
wools. It will be rushed past its final
stage in the house by adoption of the
conference report Monday and then
hurried over to the senate for adop
tion there, if possible, Tuesday, and
then on to the expected presidential
veto, which awaits all the tariff revi
Everything hinges on that veto and
the immediately subsequent move in
the house. The democratic leaders
are sure of the passage of the bill
over the president's veto in the house
but are doubtful of the outcome in the
senate. Passage over a veto requires
a two-thirds majority.
The free list bill and the cotton bill
are still hung up. The conferees on
the free list have disagreed to the
single house amendment, adding
lemons to the free list and to the
Kern senate amendment limiting free
importation of meat and cereal pro-;
ducts to those countries which have
reciprocal trade arrangements with
the United States. They have agreed
on all the other amendments and the
conference report will be presented to
both houses Monday. There will be
a give and take outcome, with a pos
sibility of each side receding and con
curring with the other's amendments
so as to obviate the necessity of send
ing the free list bill back to confer
ence. EXTENDING POSTAL BANKS.

done more for pimples, blackheads

other method. They do even more for
skin-tortured and disfigured infants
