TO PASS THIS SVEEK
Democratic Tariff .Measure luis Passed
over nil Ute Hocks In the House und
.Now (Joes to the Senate.
Wpsatfngton, May -h?The Under
wood tariff revision bill is expected
to pass this week- from Us scene of
rushed consideration In tho house to
be weighed In the steady balance of a
senate deliberation. It probably will
be passed In the bouse not later than
Wednesday night, just as it came from
the ways and means committee with
free raw wool, free sugar in three
years, its Income tax, free meat, free
Hour and sweeping reductions in live
stock and manufactured articles.
When the Democratic majority
thunders out its chorus of approval
as the bill is put upon its passage in i
the bouse, the measure will be just
one month old and its champions pre
dict that within two months more it
will have the approval of the senate
and ,soon thereafter be inscribed on
the statute books over the signature
of the Democratic president.
President Wilson, if he proposes to
ask congress for currency legislation
at the extra session, has not yet made
known any definite suggestion relat
ing to it but house leaders will learn
before many days his plans in that
regard. Whatever is in store, the low
er branch of congress has determined
to complete the formation of standing
committees and it will be ready for
any emergency while the senate is
milling over the tariff.

Although the senate finance commit
tee, to which the tariff bill formally
will be referred when it comes from
the house, has not determined upon a
programme of procedure, it lias been

committee into three sections and the
subcommittees are studying tho va

measure to report to the full commit
tee will? recommendations as soon as
possible. When tho subcommittees in
the senate have reported tho commit
tee will decide upon its course. Tints
far the majority senators have been
of the mind that the bill should not
be delayed for public bearing, but in
sistent demands from many interests
for such a hearing may bring about a
change of views.
It is an open secret that the presi
dent, the finance committee and the
ways and means committee have had
ah understanding that tho 1 >f11 should
bo' revised In all essential particulars
in the house If there are to he any
changes but whether this agreement
can be maintained remains to he seen, j
Certain it is however, that the ma-|

come out eventually witli a slight
duy, Western senators keeping up
their demand foi it and continuing to
confer with the president in an ef
fort to induce him to yield from his
determination for free raw wool. The
only other changes that seem at all
likely relate to live stock and possibly
the pottery schedule. There is a de

side demanding that cattle, sheep and
hogs should be put on the free list

plans to confer with President Wilson
this week in an effort to get Iiis defi

ahle that the president's message on
currency will be ready before the
tariff bill is out of the way. Latest
indications are that he will urge the
