IIP PENDING RETURN
OF THE PRESIDENT
.Wrangling Over Plan to In

ocratic Leaders to Delay
Report to House.
WASHINGTON', Sept U -limerceney
rovenuo legislation will liol.l chief In
tcrest In the House this week, despite
tho delay In the Introduction of Ilia Ad
ministration hill to provide MK)O,!0 A
J ear, which tho Ttensury will need be
cause of tho falling off of running duties
on account of tho European war. In
(Mentions nrc now that tho till! may nut
reach tho floor of the lluusi- until
Wednesday or Tlmrsila but the ttinnfi
ling ocr the proposed tas. on n tight
ohlpmcnta has reached suoh n stage that
n Democratic caucus Is planned ently this
week when severat Demounts wi'l seek
to overthrow tho freight tax piuvlMim
of the bill.
The original program vofl that the
revenuo bill, agreed upon b n mnjoilt
of tho Democrats of the V and
Means Committee, would be Introduced
last Saturday and would be form.ill re
ported by that committee tod i i'on
nlderatlon of the bill under a special rule
was scheduled for tomoiiuw Huwen, at
tho eleventh hour on Sntunlti, .Majority
Leader Underwood announced he would
not Introduce the bill until It hud re
ceived tho uiiauulltlod .ipprovul of the
President, the Inference belns that Mr.
Underwood realized the seriousness of
the revolt nsalnst the freight tux clause
nd Intended to put lesponsibillty
equarely up to Mr Wilson.
Accordingly, the bill is h"td In abey
ance until the President sets back from
Cornish, X. H , tomorrow.
Su indent signatures lime been ob
talncd to call a Democratic caucus
which Is scheduled for tonight or to
morrow night, unless the President
brings pressure to bear to have It post
poned. It probably will require a letter
from him to put the freight tax through
tho caucus, although there Is little or
no opposition to tho proposed tax on
beer and wines.
When tho caucus 1 nnvend Uepre
entatlvcs Kitchen and tamer. Demo
cratic members of th "a and Means

tomobiles and to Increase the income tax

from CO cents to $1; taxing 10111 cola 10

Outside of consideration of the Im
portant revenue measure, the Houo will
conclude during the week its debite on
the bill authorizing the leaidns of i nl i
oil and phosphate landi on the public
domain. This measure probably will pass
without serious opposition. On V Ines
day the Barnhirt printing bill Is to again
take the right of way and a vote may be
reached on this measure designed to re
vise and codify the prlntlnu laws and
check waste at the government printing
V They would also limit the publication
of government documents to the actual j
needs of public oiHeials. and seek to J
cheat the "Junk pile." to which thousands
of useless, uncalled for documents are .
consigned each year.
Routine bills on the prlvato claims
calendars are scheduled to take up the
spars time of the House In fn-t, there
Is no prospect of a legislative W-up at
