Washington, May 24. (Special Tel
egramsSecretary McAdoo today
gave his ultimatum to Chairman
Kitchin of the ways and means com
mittee that a new revenue bill was
imperatively necessary, and he sug
gested that the machinery should be
- started at once to get such a bill
through the house at the present ses
sion,: Consternation reigned among dem
ocratic leaders and there never was
such a scurrying to cover as was dis
played by those who but a short time
before had solemnly asserted that a
new revenue measure at this time was
wholly unnecessary, in view of the

Washington began planning for sum

' adjournment go glimmering with the
announced determination of Secretary
McAdoo not to put off further revenue
legislation until the next session.
Hearings on the new revenue bill
will begin almost any time, the clerk
of the ways and means committee
stating that it would be wise for peo
ple desiring to be heard on the new
measure to get ready to come to
Washington at a moment's notice.
As for the democrats, they are the
: sorest lot of individuals imaginable,
for they had looked forward to at least
three months in their districts repair
ing fences and setting themselves
square with their folks at home. Now,
with revenue legislation facing them,
they have not got the heart to predict
when the session will end. '
