tho heavy burden of the unusually hot

filled with men who dance and sing to
the tune of fife and drum, played by men
who led regiments to battle with the self

that never before In nil the World's his

The day, this day that marked tho be

FINAL MEETIHO HELD TOMORROW

Voted On Three Are Oft
WASHINGTON. July 4--After three
months of tinkering, democratic tariff
revision nt last is on the way for ready
launching In the senato as the Underwood-Simmons
bill. The democratic cau
cus ot the senate late today finally ap
proved the measure, as revised by the
finance committee and by its own action,
and a final meeting of the caucus will be
held Saturday, when tn resolution to
bind the senators to Its support wilt b)
presented and adopted.
For the first time in history, the bill as
It comes through the senate revision ma
chinery Is a lower tariff measure than
pasted by tho house, notwithstanding the
fact that the .estimated revenues to be
derived from the bill as It is now framed
are larger by about W.000,000 than under
the measure as It came from the house.
The total estimated revenue under the
UnderwoodSlmmons measure, Including
the Income tax, will be about IH0.0CO.000.
For the fiscal year it will be M.00O.0OO
greater than that. Inasmuch aa the senata
caucus has approved the amendment Ot
"the finance committee postponing effec
tiveness -of the cut In sugar until March
Tomorrow majority members of the
finance committee will meet to check up
on the final draft of the bill and also to
fix a date when all the schedules not
specifically provided for shall be effec
tive. It Is the sense of he caucus that
some time after the passage of the bill
should be granted, and it U planned to
fix October 1, 1013. as tne dote when all
the new rates, except sugar and a few
other matters otherwise directed, shall
become operative, As to wool, a recom
mendation of the finance subcommittee
will bo made Saturday.
Three Not to Be Bound,
Notice wse given tonight that the reso
lution binding the democrats to support
the bill would be introduced Saturday
and every democrat will be urged Jo be
present Senator Bansdell and Thorn
ton of Louisiana and Senator Hitchcock
of Nebraska, will not be bound. No
other defection from the party ranks, l
expected, and even Senator Hitchcock
is not going to oppose the bill. If all
the other senator accept the terms at
the btndlng resolution, and administra
tion leaders wero Assured tonight that
they wilt, there will be a clear majority
for the bill ot two democrats votes
without the vote of the vice president
The caucus resolution will pledge the
members to euppoft the bill as ratified.
to Introduce riO amendments and to vote
against amendments offered by the re
publican or by detnoorats who Jett the

adopted today directs the flnanoe com
