WILL BE DIS(
Rellef for Cotton Growers, Other
Farmers, and for Soldiers on List,
Melleved that Message Will Not Deal
with International Relations.
Washington, April 2.--Prdeparation
of his first message to congress and
the closing up of a dozen or more big
appointments will keel) President
Harding's hands full next week,
Ile must have his mind made up
on a number of knotty domestic prob
lemis by the time Congress meets, a
'week from Monday. le also hopes to
send the Senate a batch of important
nominations during the first week of
the new session.
'President Harding :has made few
decisions on the important legisla
tive problems thus far. Con-gress,
Hampered by an unwieldy majority, is
looking to President Harding's first
formal message for guidance in the
work of the special session.
Legislative leaders holpe his mes
sage will settle the wrangl over wheth
er tariff or revenue legislation shall
-be taken up first, as to what form
emergency shall take and whether the
anti-dumping, the ad valorem valua
tion and emergency tariff 'bills shall be
lumped together into one measure or
kept separate. *
Among other subjects under con
sideration for discussion in the mes
sage to congress are:
1. Reorganization of the United
States Shipping Board into a on'e
man body and creation of a govern
ment owned corporation for operation
of the shipping board ships to facili
tate the transaction of business. An
other suggestion is that Secretary of
Commerce Hloover be entrusted with
the operation of the government's fleet.
2. fiscal iplicies. Harding favors
repeal of the excess profits tax. He
has not announced what he proposes
to oVer in place of this revenue pro
ducer. His reemzendations on tax re
vision and tariffs are expected to be
confliec to -general statements of pol
cy and 'will include an emphatic de
claration for the protective principle.
3, Relief for the railroads. The
president is exqpectcd to do little more
than point out the seriousness of the
situation and await the findings of the
senate investigation which Senator
Cummins intends to start at once. Un
til this is concluded, t-he president In
disposed to rely on relief which can 'be
effected through the Interstate Com
ierce Commission's control over rates
and the Rail-way Labor Board's juris
diction over wages.
4. Agriculture relief. Middle West
ern grain raisers, Southern cotton
growers, and Western cattle and sheep
men are urging high ariffs and govern

President Harding is advised, are 8o
high that foreign :beef and corn can
be brought into the Eastern iqonsuming
