President to Carry His Case to
People If Senate Tries to
OPINIONS VARY GREATLY
Protests Against Free Meats
and Assurances of Favor in
President Wilson has no intention
of retreating from the position he has
taken with respect to tariff legisla
This became known at the White
House today. Some of Mr. Wilson's
callers talked to him about tariff, told
him the pending bill was popular and
advised him to stick to his guns.
The sum and substance of the re
ply of the President was that he in
tended to stick.
Believes in Measure.
He believes in the tariff measure as
it stands, or approximately as it stands,
and he Intends to do what he can to
keep it from being materially altered.
More than this, the President has
fully made up his mind what to do if
the Senate should materially increase
the rates in the pending bill. He will
go over the head of Congress, in
speeches or otherwise, to the people.
He has no hesitation in saying so to
callers. It has been his intention from
the beginning to do this.
One of the sources of outcry against
1 the tariff bill has been the farmers and
stockmen. They fear that tree meats
will lower the price of cattle and live
stock. Protests are coming in, but
on the other hand, the president is get
ting assurances from the West that
most of the people favor free meats.
Senator Simmons, chairman of the
Finance Committee, haa returned from
North Carolina, where he went-,to,J.at-tend
the wedding of his daughter. He
conferred Informally today with various
members of the Finance Committee, but
no meeting was held.
Protests against the tariff bill are
fairly deluging the Senate. Wool men.
among others, are vigorously protest
ing against free wool. Senators Cham
berlain and Lane, of Oregon, are get
ting protests In large numbers by wire.
In spite of these protests, the general
feeling is that the bill will be Jammed
through with little change, since few
of the Senate Democrats are willing to
stand out against the Administration
or the Democratic caucus, which will
endeavor to tie up the Democratic Sen
ators to support the tariff measure.
Police in Search
For Missing Boys
The police today were asked to search
for two missing thirteen-year-old boys.
They are Bryan Clarkson, of 615 Six
teenth street southeast, and William
Eusau, of 1124 Congress street north
east. Young Clarkson has been missing
since Monday, and his parents think he
has gone to Baltimore. He is described
as 4 feet 10 Inches tall. He has light
complexion and hair and was dressed
in a blue suit with a fine white stripe.
The EuBau boy disappeared about 9
o'clock yesterday morning, leaving his
home supposedly for school. It Is
thought he. too, may have left the clt.
He was dressed In a blue suit and wore
a brown cap.

Progressives Are Expected to
Make Showing in Election
TARIFF PLANS DIFFERENT
Financier Not Here on Mission
of Politics, But to Attend
That he is highly encouraged over
the prospects for the Progressive
party, and looks for it to make a
Btrong showing in the next Congres
sional elections, was made plain to
day by George W. Perkins, of New
York, who is here today to attend the
Carnegie Peace Endowment meeting.
Mr. Perkins talked of the Progres
sive party outlook and plans, and of
the tariff bill. He is not criticising
the Democratic tariff plans or what
the Administration is doing with re
spect to tariff.
Plans Not Alike.
At the same time he points out that
the methods of the Democrats with re
spect to revision are basically different
from those the Progressive party advo
cates. "I have coma here," said Mr. Per
kins, "not on a political mission, but
solely to attend the Carnegie Peace En
downment meeting today.
"The executive committee of the Pro
gressive party held a meeting In New
York yesterday. The meting received
reports of progress from all over tho

"The meeting yesterday definitely de-
ciaea to put a progressive party candi
date Into the field In every district In
the next Congressional elections. It
was murther decided to prosecute tho
wont or organization vigorously."
Mr. Perkins spoke of the financial
plans worked out yesterday and othur
details. He emphasized the fact th.it
every attempt Is going to be made to
have the Bull Moose faction make gains
In the House In the next Congress. In
contrast with the hurried organization

Mr. Perkins was askeil for his views
on the tariff bill. He said he did not
propose to appear In the light of a
critic of what the Admlnstratlon was
Tariff Up To Democrats.
"The revision of the tariff is up to
the Democrats," he said. "It Is their
Inning. For the sake of the country.
I hope they will be able to accomplish
a successful revision -jf the schedules.

Democrats are employing is not. of

data obtained b such a commission
It Is a different procedure from the one
the Democratic party is adopting.
"One of the chief causes of dissatis

the better one, but at the same time

Treasury Officials May. Chal
lenge Right of Dr. Friedmann
to Ask Fee for Remedy.
The right of Dr. F. F. Friedmann to
charge a fee for the injection of his
"turtle serum" for tuberculosis may be
challenged by the Treasury Department
through the Public Health Service. Any
contemplated action In the premises will
not be discussed by Public Health Ser
vice officials or others in the depart
ment The Public Health Law prohibits the
shipment of the serum of tubercle
bacilli Interstate, pending its approval
by the Public Health Service. Whether
this prohibition extends to its carriage
interstate by the doctor is a question
of law, for the legal advisers of the
department to settle, it Is said.
The question arose because of the
reports from Providence that Dr. Fried
mann was charging a few for the ad
ministration of his remedy there. The
issue was not draw as long as Dr. Fried
mann confined himself to free clinics
purely for purposes of demonstration.
It is believed in official quarters that
the public use of the serum for a fee
puts a different aspect on the case.
The future course will be directed by
Secretary McAdoo. who Is Interested In
developments In the Friedmann cure.
The Public Health Service. It was
learned today, has no Jurisdiction over
Dr Frledmann's action In Providence.

It was expected the case would ba
