of hundreds of visitors attracted by
the opening of congress, the conven

Woman Suffrage, which begins ton~ r
row and the meeting of the National
Democratic committee Tuesday.
House and senato Democrats com
pleted their organization plans yes
terday after a week of deliberation
during which obstaclep which threat
ened to disturb the harmonious open
ing were overcome. The senate Dem
ocrats agreed not to make the fight for
a cloture rule a party issue and the
house majority found a way to take
care of the greatly increased republi
can minority on committees. Legisla
ive issuqs did ,ot Mure matedpily
In tile preliminary conferences, hi
though the subjects of national do
fAnse and extension of American mer
chant marine were generally recog
nized as paramouuit in the delibera
tions over committee assignments.
Both houses will convene at noon.
In the lower branch the ifst order of
business will be the selection of a
speaker. Champ Clark 1fill be noini
fiated by the majority (229) for re
election and Representative. Mann of
Illinois, will be proposed by the Re
Speaker Clark, whose reelection
with the other majority nominees for
house 6fflices is assured upon taking
the chair, will rec6gnize Representa
tive Frank -Mondell, of Wyoming.
This will signalize a demonstration for
woman suffrage, the Wyoming mem
ber having been chosen to introduce
the Susan B. Anothy constitutional
amendment for equal suffrage as the
first resolution of the new congress.
The speake''s gallery will be crowded

to be followed., immediately by the
Alection of a .president pro tempore.
Senator James P. Clarke, of Arkan
aas, will be elected to succeed himself,
having been nominated by the Demo
cratic caucus last week. Republican
senators plan to nominate Senator

Other important measures to be
aonsidored include rural credits
neindments to the Sherman laws to
xid American firms in extending for
Dign trade, the Philippine bills, conser
vation, and tariff problems.
' It is almost certain that the war
tax will be reenacted and amended
and the income tax revised.
Oie ground for more optimistic
feeling- among administration leaders
Is the turn that affairs have taken in
the senate toward a merchant marine
bill. Now that a measure has been
proposed which would build up gov

senators, among them Senator Clarke,
of Arkansas, who fought the ship pur
