Hearings at which every phase of the
tariff scheduleVfrom agate to zinc" will
be discussed by representatives of the
business interests of the country will be
gin before the House Ways and Means
Committee to-morrow. Theywlll con
tinue during the month, and. Judging from
the large number of requests from busi
ness men who wish to be heard. It is
believed the committee will either have
to hold night sessions or extend its
headings Into February.
The Wavs and Means Committee has
refused to give out the names of pros
pective witnesses, and the Interests rep
resented will be disclosed only as from
day to day persons wshlng to speak on

cover the hearings. Each schedule, ac
cording to present arrangements, will be
discussed during two full days If ncc
cessary. additional time also will bo
granted Persons desiring to appear will
be notified from time to time as the
Chief llnjir of Contention.
The cotton and woolen schedules prom
ise to be the chief bones of contention.
The schedule covering miscellaneous ar
ticles also will give the committee a
good deal of trouble
Just as soon as the hearings are, con
cluded the committee will begin drafting
general tariff revision programme to
be submitted to the extra session of
Congress that will bo cenvened about
the latter part of March
Whether the proposed tariff revision
will be Incorporated in a series of bills
reducing the tariff schedule by schedule,
or whether It will be Incorporated In one
bill dealing with the proposed changes
as B, whole has not t been decided
Furthermore, it will not be possible for
the leaders to determine this question
until President-elect Wilson sunmus ins
views on this matter. Majority I.cader
Underwood personally desires schedule

In considering the reduction of the
tariff the Wajs and Means Committee
will be obliged to so limit Its operations
as to save the government some $15.
000,000 per jear In revenues. This neces

that the government requires a certain
Income from its revenues for running

To raise the necessary amount and to

Democratic Representatives are In favor
oT passing an income tax bill at the ex
tra session, whether the constitutional
amendment now before the Stat legis
latures has been ratified by two-third
of the States In the Union or not fcuch
a bill would permit the taxing of per
sonal Incomes and would In a large
measure counterbalance tariff reduttion
Increasing Internal revenue taxes on
beer and tobacco alo are to be sug
gested to make up for proposed reduc
tions In tariff Free sugar still finds
favor with many Representatives, and It
is expected that a free-sugar provision
will be one of the leading features of the
proposed tariff legislation to be put
through next spring
The committee hopes to tnke man

Place them on the so-called luxurlia.

although the Representatives from the
border districts, who fought reciprocity
with Canada, ma be counted upon to
put up a stiff battle against this propo'

The committee proposes to proceed on
the theory that it has received adequate
Information on which to write tariff
schedules, but that In fairness to the
business Interests of the country all In
terested parties should be given a chance
to appear and testify Thus far no pro
visions have been made to take testimony
In behalf of the consumer, and apparent
ly the committee has taken no notice
of the criticisms that followed In the
wake of the passage of the Pane-Ald
rich bill, when It was charged that the
previous Ways and Means Committee
gathered nothing but ex-parte testimony
and paid no attention to the plaints of
the general public
When the proposed tariff bill, or hills.

of the Democratic tendency to reduce the
