(rani.) With th punia of the farmer'
free list bill, which may b expected on
Monday or Tuesday at the very lateat, th
honaa come (ace to fee with Ita flrat
real legislative problem. It ha been recog
nised from tha beginning of thla extraor
dinary aesslon of congress that the demo
crats majority would undergo the severest
teat of Ita new found cohesion, solidarity
and discipline, when It came to revlae
downward tha cotton and wolpn schedules.
Theaa two Items of tariff making and the
admission of Arizona and New Mexico to
statehood will complete the democratic pro
grain of house activities.
It aeema probable that the itatehood Mil
will be brought up for consideration In the
houae before the revision of the wool erhed
ule la undertaken.
It will serve to occupy the time for a
while and Rive the membeTs of tha way
and means committee a longer period to
devlaa a , woolen arhedule which can be
submitted to a democratic caucus. If the
preliminary work of watting a arhedule
haa not been completed when the debate
over the admiaelon of Arlaona and New
Mexico IS out of the way, tha houee will
follow the present ncnate fashion and alt
only on Mondaj and Thursdays. It la
now the established custom of the respon
alble democratic leader not to offer any
party measure In the house for considera
tion In debate until a party caucua has
approved It, thua Insuring a united ma
jority against a minority caurus.
It la premature to pay that the house
democrats are ;ilit over the question of
whether raw wool should hear a revenue
duty or should be admitted free. Cnde
nlnlily there Is a difference of opinion
among tha democrats of the houie. hut It
Is far from true that the differences are
Irreconcilable. Kver since tha new .eon
arena began their have been predictions of
divisions and splits in the majority.
Une after another these predictions hare
not come true. Kven now there, Is coins; on
constantly and dally private negotiations 4a

. ' The Ways and means committee will
make no effort to force 4 bill 'upon tha
majority, If strong difference (re, mani
fested on the woolen schedule, - I may he
lrtually rewritten In the caucus.
None of the democrats has said ha
? would not abide by the caucua even if
his own con. mil tees did not prevail.
The house member has one advantage
at this time In revising downward wool
and the cotton schedules.
The democrats know their decision and
. what their work will be Is, In fact, almost
academic. None of them at the moment
believea that any revision of the duties
on eglto nand wool and manufactures
thereof which are adopted " by the houae
and aent to tha senate would be reported
out of the finance committee of the other
blanch at thla session. In revising theae
two tariff schedules the democrats have
reason to believe that they will only be
setting down definitely for the benefit of
the country what tiio party would do if
It were in control In the senate as well
as In the house. The White Hous may
be left out of consideration, for President
Taft will approve any measure of tariff
' reduction thai pauses both branches of
Anyone who Is at all willing to make the
inquiry can receive definite assurances
from numeiotis senttors that the only
tariff measure which the senate will enact
at ths session is .the Canadian reciprocity
bill. Th finance committee will report
even this measure reluctantly and not be
cause It wants to, but because it must. The
members of thla committee and the ma
jority -of the republican aunator have no
present intention of bringing the farmers'
free list bill to light or to give any con
sideration to the cotton and woolen
revision that may be passed by the house.
President toft will not seek to Induce the
senate to take any other attitude. The
president s sole concern al this seaalon Is
Canadian reciprocity. It is the only meas
ure which he haa asked congrea to pass.
