DEMOCRATS TO FIGHT HIGH PRO
Claude Kitchin Denies Reports That
Party Might C--operate With
Washington.--House Democrata will
oppose tariff legislation at the coming
extra session of cCAgress, leaders in
dicated. Representative Kitchin of
North Carolina, ranking Democrat of
the next house ways and means corn.
mittee, answered reports that Demo
crats might co-operate with Republi
cans in framing a substitute for the
present Underwood tariff law, with the
statement that he does not believ an
new tariff either necessary or possible
at this time.
"If the Democrats controlled the
next house, I am sure there would be
no general tariff revision," Kitchin
"I cd, not believe that a tariff can
be framed at this time that will stand
up, Conditions are changing so
swiftly that 30 days after a new tariff
were enacted it might be found inap
plicable to the new conditions."
Asked concerning the proposal of
several Democrats to levy a tariff for
revenue on noncompetitive' articles,
such as tea and coffee, Kitchin de
dlared he believed the money could
be raised In some other way that
would prove less burdensome to the
Kitchin's declaration against tariff
legislation, coupled with the intention
of house Republican leaders to re
enact protectionist schedules, makes
it virtually certain that the tariff
question will be before congr(%s and
the country with all its old-time vigor
during the next session.
