WASHINGTON. May 2S (Special Tele
gramsFriends of reciprocity in the sen
ate are now concentrating their forces
upon an attempt to secure an early test
on the Canadian agreement. During the
last three or four days they have made a
careful investigation for the purpose of
seeing precisely what it is that stands In
the ways of Ireachlng some satisfactory
conclusion. TBey have requested that the
finance committee shall take action for
the purpose of reporting the agreement
not later than Monday next, and they have
urged that as soon as the committee has
acted tl-s, senate shall begin meeting at 10
o'clock as heretofore, continuing Its ses
sions throughout the day and meeting every
day until It gets through the work- There
seems to be a disposition on the part of
the finance committee to act. If not next
Monday, then shortly thereafter, but a de
cided degree' of restivenesa has been ex
hibited with respect to the Idea of meeting
early in the day and sticking to the work
The opponents of the treaty are working
for a recess. They urge that there is really
j no reason whatever why congress should
act before the Canadians vote. On the
strength of this it Is recommended that
the first of September or of October would
be a very good date to reassemble after
taking a recess June 15. or at some time
during the two weeks following that date.
Of course. In Canada the same argument
was used that congress was not likely to
act on reciprocity for a good while and
that therefore it would answer every pur
pose if an adjournment was taken until
late in the summer.
Mr. Vnderwood. chairman of the ways
and means committee, however, early
stated he would not consent to an adjourn
ment until he was informed that the sen
ate would vote prior to such adjournment
at least on reciprocity, and possibly also
on the free list measures. . - i --
Now( tills croup ha been Joined by the
administration men in the senate. - who
have become convinced that the recess
scheme Is merely a plan to bring about
delay with a view to defeating the bill.
Senator Crane of Massachusetts has ex
plicitly said that the recess proposed, will
not be assented to until a vote has been
had on reciprocity. If the senate were ab
solutely unanimous in demanding a recess,
it might be hard for the democrats tn the
lower chamber to hold their own, but the
acceptance of the same point of view in a
strong form by the Crane group and also
In a modified form by a group of demo
cratic senators, seems to indicate that the
scheme cannot succeed unless conditions
change very much from their present
The hopeful plan of defeating reciprocity
by delay having been put practically out
of the question, the senatorial leaders have
been thrown back upon the plan of de
feating the idea by means of amendments.
The problem of defeating the bill has
therefore assumed a distinctly new form
and is now simply a question of whether
any process of bargaining and of agree
ment for mutual support of amendments
designed to change the terms of the meas
ure can gain enough adherents to Introduce
the necessary modifications. It Is generally
admitted there Is only one way In which
such a combination can succeed. That
would be through a process of connivance
on the part of men w ho are not practically
interested In any of the amendments, but
who want to see the whole thing fail and
who think they can Justify themselves tn
voting aKalnst it The real question Is
how fas- these men will go in permitting
the amendments now proposed in order to
get a colorable protest for hostile votes.

the program for the session which was ap

LARIMER'S BANK BARRED OUT
Clearing House Refuses to Admit it
OTHER ARRANGEMENTS ARE MADE
Flaanrtal roarer SolTeat, bat Its
Head Is Declared to Be an Un
tried Factor In the Bond,
CHICAGO. May 8. (Special Telegram.)
Inside facts concerning a meeting of the
committee of the Chicago Clearing House
association Saturday afternoon, at which
it was decided to refuse to admit Senator
William Lorlmer's La Salle Street National
bank to the clearing, house, were revealed
today by one of the members of the com
mittee. In this way It became known for
the first time that Senator Lorlmer's an
nouncement that hereafter he Intended to
take active charge of the management of
the bank was partly responsible for the
refusal of the clear) H ouse to admit the
La Salle street tnaUtmipa. -
At the same time It was announced by
C. B. Munday, vice president of the Lo ri
mer Institution, that the failure of the
clearing house to admit the bank would
have no effect. He declared that arrange
ments had been made by the bank to
clear through another institution and that
a definite announcement concerning it
would be made after a meeting of the
Lorlmer bank's officials Monday afternoon.
Here is the story of the meeting of the
clearing bouse committee, aa told by one
of its members, a leading officer In one
of the largest banks of Chicago:
Told by a Banker.
There seems to be a great deal of mis
apprehension concerning what was actu
ally done. How far this goes Is shown
by the fact that a mutual friend of mine
and Senator Lorlmer asked me the other
day what was going to be done with the
application of the La Salle Street National
"The facts are that no application was
filed, but the question of the advisability
of admitting the bank was Informally dis
cussed. "It is generally understood that before a
bank should be admitted to the clearing
house it should live up to certain re
quirements. The first of these require
ments is that Its directors should be sub
stantial and trustworthy men. This qual
ification was possessed by the Lorlmer
bank. The second one Is that It shall
have done business for some time and
demonstrated the ability of the men wlio
have charge of it. Now recently Senator
Lorlmer announced that he Intended to
take entire charge of the management of
"Since its organization Senator Lorlmer
has been in Washington. He Is therefore
an untried factor In the banking business.
"In Justice to the La Salle street bank,
I want to make it perfectly plain that
there Is not the slightest doubt In the
minds of the members of the committee
concerning Its solvency."
