HIS EXTRA SESSION TO REDUCE TARIFF
Wilson Announces He Will Summon Congress to Meet
Not Later Than April 15 and Carry Out Pledges of
democratic Party?Wilsons* off for Bermuda.
New York, Nov. 15.?.Gov. Wilson
announced tonight that immediately
after his Inauguration as president he
would call an extraordinary session
of congress to convene not later than
April 15 for the purpose of revising
The president-elect will sail for the
Bermuda Islands at 2 o'clock tomor
row afternoon for a vacation and will
return December 16. To set nt rest In
tho meantime speculation as to what
he wopld do with regard to tariff re
vision, he has issued this statement:
"I shall call congress together In
extraordinary session not later than
April 15. I shall do this not. only
because I think the pledges of the
party ought to be redeemed as
promptly as possible, hut also be
cause I know It to be In the Interest
of business that all uncertainty as
to what the particular items of tariff
revision are to be should be removed
as soon as possible."
Nothing More to Say.
Beyond this brief announcement
the governor said he had nothing fur
ther to say. Most of the opinions he
had received from public men seemed
to be in favor of an extra session, he
declared. The governor did not In
tend to express himself about an er
tra session so soon after his election.
Although he has favored the Idea of
an extra session because the present
arrangements would not bring th new
congress into session until 13 months
after its election he had expected to
spend more time in ascertaining pub
lic opinion. With the time to be
consumed in discussion the governor
felt that if an extra session were not
called the benefits of tariff revision
would be postponed for practically
Has Been Promised.
Throughout the campaign the gov
ernor reiterated that he desired an Im
mediate revision of the tariff and
that the Democratic leaders knew
perfectly well how to proceed about
It. The governor was Impressed by
argument also that with an early an
I nouncenient as to an extra session
Democratic leaders in congress could
begin to take counsel at an early date
so that much of the preliminary de
tails could be worked out before con
gress convened April 15. The gov
ernor was prompted, Incidentally in
making his early announcement by
the fact that many members of con
gress were desirous of nrranglng for
accommodations in Washington for
the extra session If there was to be
To liest and Think.
Though the president-elect means
to rest while in Bermuda, he really
expects to give a great deal of time to
quiet thought about the problems that
Will be Overjoyed.
. "I'll feel like dancing a Jig when
I get aboard that boat," said the presi
dent-elect as he left Princeton today.
Mrs. Wilson and her three daughters
accompanied him. Oddly enough thcro
was a special car in the same train,
en route from Philadelphia to Now
York, carrying 16 business men, one |
of whose number was paying a bet
of $5,000 which he wagered that Dem
ocratic president would not be elected
this year. Charles D. Prettyman. a
real estate man of Philadelphia, who
won the bet was, however, according
to one of the conditions, to spend
$1,500 for a dinner In New York for
a party of 16 business friends.
The governor smiled when he learn
ed of the affair.
The president-elect will sail on the
steamship Bermudlan, one of the
regular boats plying between New
Yorn and Hamilton, Bermudn. Besides
toe Wilson family, a stenographer and
three servants there will be 10 news
paper correspondents along. The party
will arrive In Bermuda Monday. The
president- elect has leased a cottage In
a remote part of one of the Islands,
whero for several years he has spent
his vacation. Immediately upon his
arrival In Bermuda he will call upon
the governor of the island and request
him to consider his presence In Ber
dums entirely Informal and unofficial.
