New York, Nov. IB.-Ciov. Wood row
V. Ilsnti announced tn-night that immc
d.atoly after bin inauguration as Presl
dent of tho fnltcd Stab's he would mil
nn extraordinary session of Congress to
convene not later than April 15 for tho
purpose of revising the tariff.
Tin president-elect will pall for Her
muda at two o'clock to. morrow after
noon for a vacation and will return on
December 16th. To set at rest In tho

ho Issued the following statement:
"T shall call Congress together In ex
traordinary session not Inter than April
15th. I shall do this not only because 1
think that tho pke1ges of the parlv
ought to ho redeemed n ,.m,K. oal1";111 i-leareii the congressional air of
possible, but also because I ltnow 11 to
to In the Interest or business that all
uncertainty us to what tho particular
Items of tnriff revision aro to he ahould
bo removed as soon as possible."
Beyond this brief announcement the
Governor said ho had nothing further
to say. Most of tho opinions ho had
received from public men seemed to be In
favor of an extra session, he declared.
WILD HE NO WAIT.
Tho Governor did not Intend to express
himself about an extra session so soon
after his election. Although he has favor
ed the Idea of nn extra session because
tho present arrangement would not bring
tb new Congress Into session until 13
r rth after Its election, ho had expected
mend more time In collecting public
op n! n With the time to be consumed
' d's-c ssion, tho Governor felt that if
extra session Mere not called, the
nrfts of tariff revision would be post
I net for practically two years. Through
ii lis campaign speeches he reiterated
' at he desired an Immediate revision of
t e tariff and that the democratic leaders
t!irw perfectly well how to proceed about
It The Governor was Impressed by the
.ngument also that with an early nn
rnun "iment as to an extra session the
dc mocratlc leadera in Congress could begin
n take counsel at an early date so that
t ich of the preliminary detail could bo
v .irked out before Congress convened on
T1 e Governor was prompted Incidental
n mnkit g Ills early nnnonuncemcnt by
' e fact that many members of the Con
prcs were desirous of arranging for ac-
mmoc'at ons in Washington for the ox

iii dlntely upon bis election the Gover-
-ir ni ido up bis mind to wult until after
! i returned from his vacation on Decern-
i 1C before making known his attitude,
I t '"ion finding, as he paid, that opln-
in favor of a special session was
r icttcaJly unanimous, ho felt no heslta
' i about making public his conclusion.
Though the president-elect means to
it whllo In "Hermudn, hq really expects
i give a good deal of tlmo to ejulet

t H will sketch his annua! massage

Some Republicans Oppose the
Plan but Others Favor "Get

Soon As Possible.
Washington, Nov. 15. Oener.il ap
proval was voiced In demoerntlo circles
to-nlRht over Pi csldent-clect Wilson's
decision m call nn extra session of e'on
gre?M to revls" the tariff. The announce
mi'iit was In line with the almost uni

Senator Williams. William J. Tlryan and
Senator Plxon. I'ol. Itoosevelt'r. cam

olced his deirtro for the extra session
In strong tiTiii". A similar Matemcnt
had liei n mad', early In the wn k by
riiiintor Martin, democratlo leader of tho
Sn..te. The news from New York tn-
the uncntalnty that had existed; and
paved the way for active work on
the part of democratic managers din
ing the coming weeks, In prcpaiatlon
for the April convening of the tailtf
rti:i'fnr.ic'AN viuwa vaky.
Some republican opposition to the spe
cial M'sslon was apparent among mem
bers In the capital to-night. Although
the White llouve would not comment
upon tho announcement from New York,
friends of President Taft said the latter
bad hoped the democrats would not bring
any further "disturbance of business."
Senator McCumbcr of North Dakota, re
publican, expressed another lepubllian
view, namely, that he fiunicd "getting It
over with." In all democratic quarters,
however, the extra session was strongly
With tho attitude of Governor Wilson
known. Conpress will begin within a
few weeks, the task of piepailng for the
arduous work of another tarltf revision.

The ways and means committee will
begin In January probably upon the wool,

adopted when the democratic House began
work two years ago of jevlslng the tailff

expected that several t ills will be leady for

May Ask Hearings on Many of
the Schedules in Order to
Washington, Nov. 17. The form that
tariff revision Is to take bufnro the spe
cial j-esslon of congress iiext spring has
lecome a matter of Indlvlduil opinion
among democratic sennttus and congress
men now here.
.Many members now favor a general
bill, coveilng many or alt schedules of
Ihe tariff law to be framed, as a partial
or complete substitute fur the I'.isne
Aldrlch law. Those who advance tills
plan claim It would bo the speedle-st way
uf fulfilling tariff pledges. Others favor
combining In a ,lngle bill tboso measures
passi'd during the last two years but
i toed by President Taft and the prepar
ation nf other single schedule bills to fol
low Ibis mi'as ire
Ptiless Ihe plan to levlse the intllo
tailff law In a single bill should be
adopted It Is believed democratic lea
(is will urpe the ejillng of tho speel.i'V
tes-slnn befoie April IS. That date was
m I by President-elect Wilson as the
latest upon which ho would assemble
the new congres-s. Democrat now here
believe Hie ne,v House ciin begin work
in March, soon after (lie present ad
ministration rctlics from power, nnd bo
nrganl.ed nnd ready for tariff legisla
tion early In April.
It is expected Hint short hearing will
be gicn by the House ways and means
coiiiinlttie to Industries vitally affected
by proposed tariff changes. The extent
of these bearings, according to del m
eiath' members of the lloite, who favor
them, will not he tuili as to Intend"
villi e.nly action (ill the tailff bills.
Senator Gore to-day expressed tho
opinion that the entire tariff revision
"hnuld be concluded before ii"xt July, per
mitting the Inauguration of the new
schedules with the beginning of the fis
cal year July l. To secure pcrl'oct co-operation
between House and Senate, Senator
lore said he piobably would suggest a
joint steeling committee of members of
tin; two houses to act together during
the approaching short session. In the for
mulation of a tariff measure for the ex
"In that way," he said, "we could
Insure the drawing of a bill that
would receive the support of both
Houses from the start, saving the lots
of much tlmo In subsequent confer
ences." It is not the purpose of tho repub
licans to allow the democratic pro
gram to be put throughout without
remonstrance. They will ask henr

able to make effective opposition in

to the transfer of prisoners from one

That, aside from funds deposit

this bank has never loaned a dol

on Vermont security or on paper
Hiiarantccd by a first -class Ver
mont, name or names, It does
not decline to receive out-of-Stnto
eollnternl if it believes the home
name is good.
It makes every effort to place
its idle, or so-called "cnll money"
with Vermont banks rather than
out-of'State banks: but every
bank, so Jar as we ever knew,
keeps u part of its idle money in
those reserve eities authorized by
Section -1059 of the Vermont Sta
tutes, lint this bnrik has never
made deposits West or South oven
under this statute, but confined
them to cities in New England
and New York.
It has been ihe policy of the
Hyde Park Savings J3ank always
to keep financially strong so that
it might at any time respond to
any call upon it by any Ver
monter, and it has to-day on hand
and on deposit "ou call" in Bos
ton and New York and in loans
to Vermont banks $20.27.'?.:i7.
Within the last Of) days this
bank has said to practically every
savings bank in Vermont: "We
prefer to keep our deposits in
Vermont rather than in New
York and Boston Banks, nnd if
von can use the money of this
bank at A per cent., we shall be
glad to place it with you."
From the suggestion of JIV. Sen
ior the inference could be fairlv
drawn that the Hyde Park Bank
was indirectly loaiiiii!: money out

tice of making deposits outside

of a big black dog which escaped after

The Hydi! J'nrk Bank courts in

they are interested as depositors

more than pleased that 11 r. Sen- I

bring to the public's notice tho
fact for it probably is a fact '
that the Hyde Park Hank carries
a larger percentage of its assels
"on call," nnd where it can put
its hand upon them at n moment's
notice, than any other bank in tho
State. In no other way could this
bank be so powerful a factor in
the financial affairs of tho State.
In no other way could it be pre
pared to respond to all calls, largo
or small, not only from individuals
but from its neighbor Vermont
banks. There aro very few banks
in Vermont that do not under

take care of their customers they
