WASHINGTON: March 1. -Curtailment
of the democratic tariff revision prograrrrT
with a view, to . speeding up ' congTeaa
to permit adjdrnmnt before the na
tional convention Is now the expressed
aim ot the democratic majority In the
house. .' !
Republicans and democrat In th sen
ale and house' ar chaffing over delay
in actual legislation that threatens to
crowd - congress 'later on. Democratic
Leader Underwood of tho house, chair
man -of th ways and means committee,
indicated today that tho wool tariff re
vision hill, which is to be reported prob
ably within ten days, will be th last ot
th revision measure at this session ot
congress. ' Ths Idea -has been discussed
by leaders of both parties In both house
and those who have conferred have ex
pressed the view that congress was
likely to be sway from Washington be
fore the gathering of the republican clans
at Chicago on-Juno IS and th democrats
tt Baltimore on June .
. Tariff . ItevlsUa t Bad.
"I think our tariff revision bill will
end with th woolen' schedule, which ws
xpect to report within ten day," said
Mr. Underwood today. "There is bo use
for. us to go, any further until wo find
out what tho senate Is going to do with
the Mils. already , passed and what tho
preaident is going to do. Wa have passed
a steel bill. We shall pass a sugar bill
and then we will have a wool bill..
"W will hdv mad our record In
th tariff with ese schedules and I am
opposed to going any further If th woik
to wasted." ,
Will congress adjourn before tse na
tional convention?" Mr.' Underwood was
"I am doing everything tn my power
to bring that about and I confidently be
lieve that It-wm 'b accomplished. As
soon ss th sugar bill is out of th
way I may .bung In th excise tax bill.
I have sot' duit mad up my mind
whether to. follow wit It immediately
after the sugar hill t Ptsaed. hut preb.
ably will, a I view the situation now.
It. apt. th. appropriation' kills will be
taken up. Th diploma tio hill, postofflc
bill, Isgislathtve bill and ethers ar all
ready. These oan b hastened through.
. "I see no. reason why Adjournment
cannot be reached before '. th conven
tions." .' . .
, Th democratic program In th swat
la to stand solidly behind th house steel
bill and. In a goners 1 way, to support
th democralio ' measures that com over
from tho house. Th regular republic
ans, standing, dn what they asaert to be
definite aasurkric that the president will
veto any rsvtaon legislation not beted
on tariff board report, wilt solidly op
pose house bills not based on such
'Wool Pretlsless DeeMfal.
Th house democrat ar talking t a
free wool bill, though Democratic Leader
Underwood Insists that even silk or rub
ber would not raise ths necessary reve
nue to' offset the loss from fro wool.
Political - conditions msks the fat of
any such meaaur on which the house
ways and mean committee will begin
final work next week, problematical In
the senate. .
While prograsslr republican senators,
it Is reported, ar not acting generally
in Boaotrt oa ,th tariff, some of them
believe that fa! line ooneessions from th
regulars ot their own party, some com
