MAKE RAPID PROGRESS
AGREEMENT REACHED OX
ABOUT 100 ITEMS.
Two Schedules and Part of Third
Considered — Reduction of Cor
poration Tax Rate.
[From The Trlbun<s Bureau.]
Washington, July 10.— An agreement was
reached to-day by the Republican members of
the conference committee of the Senate and
House on approximate!^ one hundred disputed
provisions of the tariff bill. When adjournment
was taken the committee was well Into tho
metals schedule, the third schedule of the bin.
Several of the House conferrees objected, to
holding a Sunday session, and it was decided
not to meet again until 10 o'clock on Monday
morning. Beginning on Monday, night sessions
will be held, and a week from to-morrow a Sun
day session probably will be held. After the ad
journment of the conference Mr. A'drich said hs
saw no reason to change his opinion of yester
day that a full and harmonious agreement win
be reached within ten days.
It was thought that the first business of ths
conference would be the Senate's substitute for
the maxim and minimum provisions of th#
House bill. Apparently this was not agreeabte
to the House conferrees. for the question was
not discussed at length to-day, and instead tim
schedules were taken up In their regular order.
Most of the amendments agreed to to-day did
not involve serious and elemental differences of
opinion between the two branches of Congress.
In all probability two hundred amendments
were considered, about half, of them "betas
adopted and the other half passed over for con
sideration at the second reading of the MR
WORKING ON METALS SCHEDULE. .
The conferees were of the opinion that ti*
best way to make progress was to go through
the. bill paragraph by paragraph, and defer ac
tion on amendments which involve radical and
vital changes from the House rates. Following
this programme, the committee finished its first
consideration of Schedule A. chemicals, oils and
paints, and Schedule B. earths, earthenware and
glassware. Half of Schedule C. metals and
manufactures of. was finished a!? "
It goes without saying that th« paragraphs
passed over included iron or», structural steel,
scrap iT-ort. whit** lead. ac»tat» of lead, red lead,
window glass. ga3 retorts, carbons for electric:

MAY EE FIGHT ON HOSIERY.
Cheaper cotton and woollen goods and cheap
hosiery and women's gloves — the former de
manded by the House and the latter by the Sen
ate — promise to be among the most stubbornly
fought Questions in the conference. At least,
that is the way things appeared at the close of
the first day's session.
There was a great anal ••:" speculation to-day
among leaders in Congress -who are not mem
bers t'f the conference as to what will be don-*
with these items. Some members expressed th»
opinion that the House would yield on cotton
and wool and the Senate on gloves and hosiery.
If this should be the outcome it is said that
vigorous protests would He heard in both th«
Senate and House from advocates of downward
revision. Some members went so far as to say
that an effort would be made to reject the con
ference report in the event of -such a glaring
instance of upward revision."
The effect of amendments to the cotton and
woollen schedules In the House was a material
reduction of the existing duties. The Senata
restored these by a decisive vote. On the other
hand, the House advanced the rates on hosiery
and women's gloves above- the duties fixed by th*
Dingley law. and the Senate declined to accept

"Questions of so much importance cannot N»

them to-night. "I gaaaa we will be locked up is.

All the conferrees. however, expressed satis
faction with the progress made to-day.
