WASHINGTON . Aug. J2-The extraor
dinary session of the Sixty-second congress,
marked by the passage of the Canadian
lation, the statehood and ether Important
reciprocity bill, vetoed tariff revision legis
measurea, adjourned srne die at I 02 o'clock
this afternoon. President Taft, who had
Just voted the cotton bill, the last of the
three revision bills adversely acted on, was
present with members of his cabinet.
Presiding officers of both houses of con
gress delivered short speeches felicitating
the members, regardless of party, upon
gooA m ill shown during the session snd ex
pressing best wishes for them during the
recess of congress. The regular session
of congress will begin on December 4.
President Taft's message vetoing the cot
ton bill was read in the iiouse at 1.02 p. m.
As In the case of the wool and free list
bills the president baseo his objection to
the cotton bill largely on the fact that the
tariff board baa not as yet had time to
submit a report on the schedule. He also
declared that the cotton bill was adopted
without any Investigation or Information
of a satisfactory character as to Its effect
on the cotton Industry.
As soon as the president's veto had been
read. Mr. Underwood announced that In
asmuch as the democrats did not have a
sufficient number of votes to paas the bill
over the veto. It would be referred to com
mittee. Mr. Underwood's motion for refer
ence of the whole matter was agreed to
Message of President.
The president objected especially to the
attempt by congress to add a revision of
the Iron and steel and chemical schedules
to the cotton bill ss amendments.
"I find." he said, "that there was prac
tically no consideration of either schedule
by any committee of either house. There
j were no facU pre8ented to either house tn
j hlch I can find material on which to form

merits either on American industries or
upon revenues of the government.
Briefly reviewing the manner in which
the iron and steel and chemical amend
ments were added to the bill, the president
"I cannot make myself a party to deal
ing with the Industries of the country in
this way. The Industries covered by metais
and the manufacture of metals are the
largest In the country and It would seem
not only wise but absolutely essential to
acquire accurate information as to the ef
fect of changes which may vitally affect
these Industries before enacting them Into
Speaking of the eotton Industry, the
president said the capital Invested In 1WB
amounted to SS21.000.000. the value of the
product to SC9.000 000, the number of wage
earners to S7S.0O0, making, with dependents,
a total of at least 1.30 000 persons affected,
with annual wages of .144 Ore, 000. The bill
would not have gone Into effect until
January 1. next, and Mr. Taft said the
tariff board would be ready with a report
before that time.

of the typical Inconsistencies and Instances

After citing a number of lncreaaes made

tinued: "But the most remarkable feature of this

a record which has surprised our friends
and dumfounded our enemies" said
Speaker Clark. "It haa put heart and hope
Into democrats everywhere. The extra ses

sense of being a special session called by
the president, but also In the amount and
quality of the work done In the house by

the unanimity of action developed by the
Critics Sorely niaappolated.
"It was predicted freely, vociferously,
enthusiastically and confidently by the

that we might go to pieces at the earliest
possible date. But we have sorely disap

set the date when we would go to pieces,
which was the day of the democratic cau
