in t'oiiRress will he able to put tliroiif.lt a '
new tariff bill by next July, according to,
the opinion of Congressman I'liilerwood ,
Whether u revision of the tariff downward
will be effected by considering tine I
schedule at a time or whether it will be
by a general hill, Mr. Underwood says, is i
a matter 'of policy for the committee tol
Mr. Underwood t-ays there will be a re-'
vision of the entire tariff, but ho would not '
predict what methods would be applied. I
lit; is pleased with President-elect Wil
son's decision to call a special session of
Congress, H,. thinks the pletles of thy
Democratic party should be redeeiittsl I
as soon as possible. Mr. I. ii(lrwood.ev
pects to go to Washington about December
1 to begin his work.
"When I return lo Washington," he said,
"I will call a meeting of the old com
mittee, ten members of which out of four
teen hold over Necessary hearing and
Jiraetjcally all preliminary work can be
done thi winter. I believe, and the mat
ter can be pm in shape for prompt, con
sideration whn the special session of
Congress opens next spring.
"The iufoimatiuti gathered will be
turned over to the new tariff committee
and it will determine the method of pro
cedure to be followed There will be
tevisionof the tariff bill as a whole bull
would not undertake to predict whether
the bill will be taken up schedule bv
schedule or whether a general bill will be
submitted, as tlu.t in a mutter of policy
to be determined by the committee, of
which 1 have not yet been reelected chair
man "However, I believe the matter will be
whipped irttu shape this winter, lo be
ready for prompt consideration next
spring It should not take more than
thirty days or six peeks to gel a new lull
through the House, but theie may be some
delay in the Senate. My guess is that the
work of revising tho tariff doiiwatd will
be completed by .Inly."
Asked if matters other than the tariff
were likely to be considered nt the special
session .r. Underwood replied that he
did not know.
