turned here this morning accompanied
hv her husband Mr. Harrington wont
to York last night and paid the wife's
fine According to reports, Mrs. Wil

i still held by the York authorities in
default of her fine. She is the only
woman of the trio still in custody. It
is also reported that the three men who
rloped with the women also are still
held in default of their fines.
Mr Harrington, under his own signa
ture, had the following statement pub
lished in an afternoon Alexandria pa
per to-day concerning the affair:
"I went to York. Pa., yesterday, and
from the recommendations from the of
ficials at York. I feel that I was justi
fied In taking the step I did. 1 am
proud, indeed, to have my wife back
home with me. The papers in their
statements of the affair did not give
the absolute facts, and I am In a posi
tion to furnish positive proof of my as
sertions. There was no trip to Nor-
ioik. and my wiie aid not nave any
companion en route, as stated. She had
worried over the trouble of her sister,
and was persuaded by the trio to ac
company them to York, but she re
gretted he- action that same night,
and wanted to send for me at once,
but was prohibited. Wc are going to
live Christian lives and expect to put
our trust alone in Jesus. He will all
our sorrows share, and we hope In time
to regain our friendship. Pray for us
Fraternally yours. s. HAKIUNGTO.v."

If the House Democrats in caucus to
night accept the recommendations by the
majority of the Ways and Means Com
mittee, the Canadian reciprocity bill will
be submitted to the House and passed
in advance of any other tariff legislation.
The Democrats of the Ways and Means
Committee decided last night, after an
all-day session, upon a tariff programme
which starts off with Canadian reciproc
ity. This action on the part of the Demo
crats of the Ways and Means Commit
tee is particularly gratifying to Presi

procity De taken hp and passed as a
separate proposlUon. While the Demo

ures. Plan to Lower Duties.
The day after the Canadian reciproc
ity bill Is reported to the House the ma
jority of the Ways and Means Commit
tee, according to the plan to be sub
mitted to the caucus to-night, will offer
a bill lowering duties on agricultural
implements and on supplies which the
farmer is obliged to buy. There will be
about a hundred articles in this bill,
nearly all of the reductions designed
chiefly for the benefit of the farmer.
The Items will be taken from a num
ber of schedules, and will include boots,
shoes, reapers, plows, harness and sad
dlery, harvesters, twine, bagging, and
many other articles that draw upon the
farmer's pocketbook in the course of the
It was originally planned first to at
tempt a revision of the woolen schedule.
but on second thought the Democratic
leaders have decided to recommend the
introduction of a sort of '"companion
piece" to the Canadian reciprocity bill.
It has been the cry of the Insurgents and
many regulars in the Senate that they
could not vote for the reciprocity agree
ment because it draws upon the farmer
and gives him nothing in return.
Will Embarrass Insurgents.
The bill which the Democrats will in
troduce immediately after the Canadian
reciprocity agreement Is designed to cut
the ground from under these objecUons.
It will- In a measure compensate the far
mer for the concessions that he is sup
posed to make In the propoosed reciproc
ity agreement. The Republican Insurgents
in the Senate found themselves In an em- I
barrassing fix In the last session of Con
gress as regards reciprocity, and the
Democratic method of handling the sub
ject is likely to put a much severer test
upon their sincerity.

Tho Senate Democrats are going to
follow the example of their brethren on
the House side and hold another caucus.
They will not get together, however,
until the latter part of the week. One
of the things to be considered by them
is the creation of a committee of floor
managers whose duty it will be to look
after a, legislative programme. The Re
publicans of the Senate always have had
a special committee of this character,
but the Democrats have intrusted the
general management of party affairs to
a single committee. It Is the suggestion
of Senator Martin, of Virginia, the new
minority leader, that the special com
mittee be created.

It is said that Jackson proposes to ap
point his son to one position and his son-in-law
to another, both of which his sup

States. It is said that Ryan, of New
York, Jackson's opponent, was defeated
in the Democratic caucus through these
pledges, and now Jackson denies that any
one was authorized to make such pledges
The writers of the letters and telegrams
