Tho hurriedly called meeting assembled
at 11 o'clock, but when the senate met at
noon no progress had been made toward
a conclusion and the democratic leaders
agreed to lay the tariff bill aside. Tho
caucus will resume work at 3 o'clock this
The' so-called Insurgent forces, led by
Senator Jteed ot Missouri, who circulated
the caucus petition, Insisted that there
were many compromises and amend
ments agreed to by the conference com
mittee which demanded further study and
consideration by the democrats of the
renate before being finally written Into
Airree to Delar Dill.
After an hour's discussion democratic
leaders determined not to try to force
the tariff bill through the senate today,
but to allow ample time for debate be

Decrease in Year
NEW YORK, Ooh L-Buslness on tho
Stock exchango for the nine months ot
tho calendar year ending yesterday
showed a marked falling off In com
parison with the Corresponding period of
1912, despite' the .Steater activity and gen
eral price advances ot the last few weeks.
000,090: These totals represent a decrease
of about 31,000,000' shire and 'tlW.OOO.OOO
bonds compared with the same' period last
To 'an'' extent, 'however, these figures
aro considered Misleading for the reason
that .under the policy ot reform In
augurated! by the exchange early In the
year, thMdally operations ot the last tew
months are- believed to represent mora
actual business than was transacted In
former years, when manipulation often
was ot a flagrant-character.
Brokeri view the qutl.ook aa more
hobefu than some months ago. ifhls Is
Indicated-In the partial recovery of tho
price of Stock exchange seats, from their
low price of the mid-year. Conservatism
Is still the key note, however, and that
attitude may be expected to continue
pending a better understanding of the
tariff and currency bills and 'other po
tent 'factors. ,

Nothing Is more fitting for a king)

Ak-Sar-Ben- when he came Into the' city
of Cibola, In his magnificent float ac
companied by nineteen other floats re
cording the deeds ot Arabian and Per-
