WASHINGTON. Pec. 5 At noon tomor

Sherman will preside In the senate and
Speaker Cannon will wield the gavel In the
The beginning of the session ia regarded
as always with Interest, but there have
been few sessions in recent years for which
there has been so little planning among
members. Ordinarily Speaker Cannon and
Serator Aldrlch. who speaks for the ma
jority of the senate, have a program at the
beginning of a session, but this year they
have none; or. If they have one, they aro
not talking about It. They are waiting
upon the president. By common consent,
apparently, all are holding back until the
pitaldentlal recommendations can be re
ceived, as they will be on Tuesday, In his
first annual message. That his suggestions
will be acted upon Is too much to say. But
there la a disposition to accommodate him
at far aa can be done, and there Is a deter
mination to hear his Intimation before
entering upon any effort at legislation
along the lines upon which ho has Inti
mated a desire to be heard.
Plana of "Insurgents."
Even the "Insurgents" generally express
a willingness to wait upon the W hite Hoube
before attempting to formulate a plan of
action. This Is true both In the senate and
the house. TVey manifest much Interest In
the forthcoming message, but say that umu
It ia received they will be unable to form
any plans. They proclaim no fight against
the president, but some at least of the m are I
avowedly lrreconohable in their attitude to
wards the speaker and Senator Aldrich,
whom they hold responsible, the one for
'the house rules and the other for-the tarirf
law. Unquestionably they will be heard
from In some way before the session grows
veil- old. and It not hoped by tho friends
f the new tariff that they will escape criti
cism!) They are prepared for this and will
attempt to mot It w'n It romef. There ia
practically no prospect of amending .the
rules of the house during this session and
the lndlcallona are strong that there will be
ho general effort In that direction. There
doubtless will be some talk, however.
Probable Itnllrond Legislation.
The principal Interest In the outlook cen
ters' In tha possibility of railroad legisla
tion, and all hand are waiting with keen
expectancy to aec what recommendations,
If any, Mr. Taft may make on that subject.
Hepreentailve Mann has bills prepared
on all these points and will present them
as toon aa the message Is rec tved. He
Is chairman of the committee which will
have1 the measures in hand and will piess
them 'with vigor.
Much Interest Is felt in the Nlcaraguan
situation, but thj general disposition li
to permit the executive branch to deal
With It without legislative Interference ut
least in the present stage. Congressmen
generally express no apprehension as to
tha outcome. The attitude of Canada to
wards the provisions of the tariff law rcl
Atlvt to print paper and wood pulp Is
giving some concern, mere win oe eariy
efforts to remedy this sliuatlon, but there
la no certainty of the outcome.
While the corporation tax provision of
the tariff bill was under conoid rat on
during the extra session, Senator Aldrlcti
expressed the opinion that It might not
be of long life, but hi probably will taxe
no steps to abrogate It until the full ef
fect of tho tar. ff as a revenue producer
oan be ascertained.
' Sogur Trust Krsolutlou.
Representative Campbell will Introduce a
resolution Monday for an investigation of
the sugar trust.
The opinion Is quite general that after
thslr long "wait at the church" New Mex
loo and Arizona will attain to statehood
before the close of the session. Thj presi
dent has promised that they shall come In
separately and while many members stll
regard the two territories as unpr. pared
for tha responsibilities of statehood tiie
probabilities are that they will yield and
allow the pasrage of a bill enabling their
admission. There also HI be strenuous
efforts to get through a postal savings
bill and a merchant marine bill, but both
will be opposed.
Both houses will probably adjourn at
most Immediately after convening on Mon

Trading in Cotton Futures
Makes Fictitious Prices
WASHINGTON, Pec. B. Both th pro
ducers of cotton and the dealer In that
commodity are the victim of the system
of trading In vogue on the ee.ton ex
changes of th country.
This Is the burd.'n of parts 4 and 5 of
th report of Commissioner of Corpora
tions Herbert Knox Smith on tha conduct
of such exchanges. The practice of deal
ing in futures, as It Is carried on at prea
ent, la condemned, althought the report
does not condemn tho exlstenc of the ex
change. "The brief discussion of general specu
lation In this report." says Mr. Sniltn,
"recognises the possibilities for good In

BRITISH POLITICAL OUTLOOK
Bank of Ennland Increases It
Reserve Because of Bsdst
Fight and. This Makes
NEW YORK, Dec. 6. Various factors
served to disturb special sentiment In the
stock market last week. The vulnerability
of the market to these factors waa largely
owing to the restraint on speculative opera
tions exercised by the money position.
Eer since the Bank of England began to
assert Its opposition to the expensive em
ployments of credits In speculation by forc
ing up the London money market there
have been evidences of a scaling down of
commitments In the New York stock mar
ket and a restriction on the concentrated
operations In that market by which prices
had been advanced and held.
The political crisis In England which cul
minated In the rejection of the budget last
week by the House of Lords constrains the
Bank of England to maintain Its extraordi
nary proportion of reserve and continues
London's control of New York gold sup
plies. Gold went to South America last
week on London order In an undiminished
stream, and combined with the special re
quirement of the December settlement and
some large syndicates' transactions, this
made the call loan market subject to some
fluerries. The maximum rate for the year
naa touched again and the calling of loan
by the banks restricted the supplies avail
able or operations In the slock market.
i he dropping tendency of prlcea thus In
augurated gave weight to tho misgivings
which arose over the anti-trust agitation
and the prospects that It wouid grow and
inttnaify. Reports from Washington of tho
tone exercised In the president s message
