DOVE OF PEACE.
Truce Declared by "Insurgents"
and "Regulars.'"-Both Fac
tions and the President
Give Out Statements.
Washington, January 14.-- The
-dove of peace succeeded in getting
reasonably near a perch to-day on the
fild occupied by the warring Repub
iean factions of the House, after
that 'much-sought bird had been re
peatedly frightened away from the
sene by the clamor of the 'contend
ing participants. When Represen
tative Hayes, of California, the me
diator for the insurrents, returned to
the House after calling upon Presi
dent Taft the news circulated rapidly
that a truce had been arranged and
rA more or less permanent peace in the
Republican ranks was about to be
This was considered conflkmed
when a statement from the White
House and another from Represen
tative Dwight, the Republican whip,
announcing the details of the armis
tice. The peace pronunciamento
proved premature, however, for Rep
resentative Haye, between nuner
'us conferences with 'his associates
announced that no agreement had
been reached and that the matter
would go over until to-morrow.
At this juncture the insurgents
gathered in the room of Representa

President Issues Statement.
The following statement was given
out by President Taft:
"it has been agreed between the
regular Republicans ands the
called insurgents represented by Nf.
Dwight on the one hand and Mr.
Hayes on the other, after conferences
-with the President, that a caucus
should be held to pass upon the
question of the committee in the in
terior department investigation with
the assurance that the insurgents, if
they came into the caucus, would be
treated fairly,. and that a committee
of ocknowledged impartiality,
be appointed. A further agreement
,was foreshadowed that the caucuses
91houMc be held from time to time,
.to which all elected as. Republicans,
should be invited to take up the vari
ous measuras recommended by theI
Administration as performances on.
the party pledges, the subject of each
caucus to be announced in advance.''
The Statement of Representative
Dwight, the Republican whip of the
House, concerning the reported un
derstanding between the regulars
and insurgents was as follows:
"The questions of the past have
been forgotten. The tariff bill is no
longer a matter for discussion. The
Speakership fight is ended. The.
question of the rules is now an issue.
Weare confronted with the problem'
of redeeming the pledges of the Re
publican party to the people.
"Last Friday there was a vote
in this House which caused a Re
publican division. '
Mr. Dwight here referred to the1
vote on the Norris amendment, tak
ing the appointment of the Ballinger
Pinehot investigating committee
from thle hands of Speaker Cannon
:nd placing it with the House itself.
"That was a matte:' of no conse
quience anid a small ob.ject in which
the peole could have but little in

the party. The next day I saw Pres
ident Taft and laid the matter ;be
"I told the President that the so
,called insurgents were represented as

the Administration and ready to help
enact his recommendations into law.
I assured thee President that the reg

ready to do likewise. We also were
prepared to go into caucus upon any
any proposition and abide by. the re

"For the past two days confer
ences have been in progress and
those who difered from us last Fri
day are now ready to enter the cau

Mr. Dwight was asked if the in
surgents had been given any definite
assurances as to the treatment they
would receive in caucus.
"No,'" he replied, "except that
they have been assured of fair treat

"Having sold my farm and being
about to leave the country, I will
sell at public auction." That is the
starting of a vast number of ,an
