LONG AND BITTER FIGHT ENDED BY
COMPROMISE ON IMPORTANT SECTIONS
After a battle which has lasted for nearly a year and a
fight which was one of the most bitterly contested in the;
history of Congress, the House at an early hour this morn
ing adopted ah amended form of the Jones-Works excise
bill, inserted as a rider by the.Senate on the District Appro
priations Committee, and sent the District budget to con
ference with a' definite agreement on the form v&ich the.
new excise, law should take. "
Along the line of the contentions which have been
made continuously by The Times, the compromise bill re
tains the principal features of the Jones-Works -bill as
passed by the Senate,, butprovisions admittedly unjust to
the :lijuor" interests and 'dlBtlnctlyi
unfavorable to the passage'of the'WU
have ben. eliminated.
Short Debate Held.
The substitute was, accepted in the
House1 without a roll' call and after
Jbriymtautea-t debate; Jrtbr to 'Con
CrcMnmn Burleson's motion to suspend
the. rules, disagree to the Senate amend
ments to "ihe District bill, with the ex-
ceptlon of the excise amendment, and
to agree to that amendment with an
amendment, conferences had been hefd
between the prohibition and antl-prohl-bltlon
forces In the House and the sub
stitute was adjudged to be fair to all
.Interests.
Mr. Burleson called up the substitute
shortly xbef ore midnight last night. Con
Creasman Bartholdt, of -Missouri, led
the brief and futile opposition to the
compromise bill and when the vote "was
tsKea there was less than 'a hall-dozen
"noes" on the motion to send the Dis
trict budget to conference.
Supports Times' Stand.
The substitute bill, which Is printed in
full on another page of this paper, is
along the lines of the liquor legislation
for which 'The Times has contended and
embraces the provisions submitted by
it to members of the Appropriations
Committee when a compromise was be
ing sought between the conflicting ele
ments in the House.
The principal provisions of the pros
, pective excise law, in brief, are as fol
lows:
The creation of a new Excise Board,
to be appointed by the President

Wilson,. Mrs. Wilson, and
their daughter. Miss Jessie Wilson,
braved the raw, blustery March weather
today to walk' the half zulie between
their- cottage In the edge of the town
and the First Presbyterian Church,
where tho Wilsons have been attending
services for twenty years.
They did not attract particular atten
tion as they sat In the family pew
through the services, even though Mr.
wiiann la tn become President of the
United States on Tuesday., because they
are regular attendants. The sermon was
preached by Dr. John Dewltt, of the
Princeton Theological Seminary, but no
reference was made to the President
elect, even in the prayer.
Mr. Wilson was one of the first mem
bers of the congregation to leave when
the services was over. He waited at
ih. oHera nf -thn walk for his wife and
daughter, who were making slow
progress In their "good-bys." As he
waited in thesharp wind, the crowd be

Many of them were women, and to
each of these he lifted his hat. despite
the cold weather. They were so numer

of the time and the handshaking devel
