This fact w-as made clear in a statement today by Representative Oscar W. Underwood, chairman of the house committee on (ways and means. Until tariff legisla, tioti is well under way in the house no general committees will be named and no other legislative subjects~ Wlli be taken up. The president has men tiobed no special subject lit his procla mntion, but it is understood that his message 'to congress .t its opening will dwell upon the need of tariff revision. If the currency, Philippine indepen dence, Alaskan affairs, woman suf frage or other pressing questions fin ally are forced upon the attention of congress it will ,be only after the demo. cnatic leaders of the two houses and the president are convinced that the success of the tariff revision is as sured. .The senate committees are organized for work and 'will take up the prelimi nary stages of much general legislation' early in April.

"The date fixed by President Wilsop is satisfactory to us," said Represeti tative Underwood. '"The tariff legis lation Wvill be ready for presentation to' the ;louse by that time, and we shbuld be at work upon it in the house within th'de of four days after the house convenes. "Of course, before work is begun it will 'be necessary to organize the house.

The plan is to organize only the com mittees necessary to conduct the or ganization of the house, rules, ac counts, mileage and enrolled bills. "I will confer later with Chairman Fitzgerald of the appropriations com mittee as to the necessity, of reor ganizing his committee to handle the appropriation bills ,which failed at the last session. These will be the only committees organized prior to begin ning tariff work. The others will go over until later in the session." The tariff legislation now being com pleted by the ways and means com mittee will be submitted to the demo cratic caucus before the session opens. Prboclamation Brief. The president's pronouncement, to day was brief and followed form close ly. It stated merely that, "Whereas, ,Public interests require," congress would be convened in extra session by order of the executive. 'Originally ,Mr. Wilson had fixed on April 1 as the date, Representative Un derwood, the majority leader, having informed him that the tariff bills, to which it was agreed congress should give immediate attention, would ibe. ready on that date. IMs. Underwood found, however, that the ways' and means committee would need another week to draft the tariff schedules, and today's proclamation is ih deference to (Continued on Page Eight) Greatest Value Ever Offered for a Nickel ¶ The power of a nickel is truly wonderful when one con siders what it will buy. ¶ It will buy an evening's entertainment.

WANTS RECOGNITION. Washington, March 17.-Juan Ochoa Ramos, a wealthy Mexican, a close friend of Felix Diaz, is here to try to secure from the United State recognition of the Huerta provisional government in Mexico. Senor" Rlimos has seen both Presi dent Wilson" and hecretary Bryan. Although he has been in Washing ton several days, the real purpose of his visit did not leak orut until today, it having been announced when he arilved here that he was in this country merely as a visitor and to look after sonic of his per sonal interests. Senor Ramos has considerable in terests in the United''States and is an immense landholder in his own country. It is understood that he told President Wilson and Secre tary Bryan that President Huerta was exerting his utmost powers to restore tranquility in Mexico and, that recognition of his `authority by this government would be of in valuable aid in securing perma nent peace. Lare0o, Texas, March 17,-Defeated' in their first attempt to capture Nuevo Laredo, the little band of Carranzistas, who surprised the federal garrison of the Mexican border, town early today, encamped in the hills several miles to the south tonight, evidently to await the. arrival of reinforcements before attacking again. It is reported that more troops are hurrying to the aid of both fodrces and possibly will ar rive late tonight. In this event a renewal of the ,battle is expected at daybreak. Machine guns and am muntion are being hurried to the fed erals, it is reported. The rebel attack this morning was vigorous and was marked by the death of a woman who led one of the fiercest assaults in spectacular fashion at the head of the band of insurrectos. The woman, identified as a relative of Carza Rivas, a rebel leader, was killed as she charged the federals waving a red flag and shouting encouragement to her men. Twenty rebels and 15 federals are known to have been killed. About 40 wounded are being cared for at an im provised hospital by American physi cians and' by 'women from Laredo, who crossed the border immediately after the firing ceased and volun teered their services, acting as nurses. The rebels nurpbexing about 200 followers of Carranza, entered the city last night and opened at the day break the ,battle with a fusillade fired from a factory 'building. The federal gar rison of 350 men was in action within a few minutes and the battle con tinued for 'an hour and a half, the rebels finally being driven to the hills. Several rebel wounde.d were shot to death by the federals, it is said, and an accurate estimate of the casualties will not be possible until a more com plete exploration of the streets and alleys, through which the battle raged, is made.

London, March 17.-There were mili tant scenes today at the weekly gath ering of suffragettes in a London music hall. In the course of an ad dress by IMrs. ,Pankhurst, shouts *f "Why don't you blow up Prender As quith?" and 'IShoot him," rang through the hall. IMrs. Pankhurt referred to her ap proaching committal to jail on the charge of inciting malicious damage and then to her daughter's imprison ment. 'iMy daughter," she said, "is trying to release herself as a prisoner of war front the enemy, and is enduring atl the tortures of ils.rltsuninent." At this juncture the hall resounded with an outburst against Premier As quith and his cabinet ministers. The suffragette leader continued to relate how her daughter '9yl..a, "dur i.ng the first few days of her imprison ment was not only forcibly fed, tbut was deprived of all books.' She was In solitary confinement, and for exercise was absolutely left to her own re sources while undergoing that treat ment." The speaker announced that Miss Lansbury and IMrs. Moore, two "mili tants," who went on a hunger strike in prison, were released from custody today, Mrs. Pankhurst attadked the lady party leaders, incidentally. She said they had professed to Ibe in favor of the women and had receilvd help, "both 1personal and pecuniary," yet they had done nothing to further the cause. The militant suffragettes have de clared war against their sisters who are working for the vote' for women 'by constitutional means. " A meeting of the constitutionalists, which Phillip Snowden, socialist ; . P. for Blackburn, was addressing at Gateshead tonight, was throw into dis order by militants who insisted on in terrupting Mr. Snowden. Quiet was not restored until the students, male and female, had ejected the rmotle War like supporters of the suffragette movement. George Lansbury, former socialist member of the house of commons, who resigned his seat in .arliament as a protest against the refusal of the gov emtiment to give votes to women, and who defeated for 're-election last No vemberi, made a thtreatening speech 'ie fore the MlaS's Federation of WVomati's Suffiage tonight. He said that Itfpub 11i opilionl did not compel the goverii ment to iuse the police to preserLve oi der at public meetings, there was only one thing to do, and that was for the men to arm themselves and preserve order. %6. Lasnebury also attacked the labor party for not forcing the gOvernment, as it could do, to give women the 'vote. The laborites, he said, were tricking, bettayring and fooling the women.

Washington, March 17,--President Wilson turned his attention today chiefly to the political situation in New Jersey, whereO the democratic party is divided on the question of a jury' reform bill, and the senatorial contest in Maryland, where William L. Marbury has begun a campaign against Senator John Walter Smith, seeking re-election on the, ground that Mr. Smith is not a progressive. The president listened also to a com mittee of woman suffrage leaders, in troduced by 'Representative Raker of California, who urged him to recom mend at the extra session of congress the adoption of an amendment to thi federal constitution, giving the ballot to women. Mr. Wilson indicated that while he, night not make such a recommendation :t the extra session, he did not wish his attitude now to he construed as oplposed to womallln sur frage. He made it clear that his mirid was open on the suhbject. The president threw his influence into New Jersey politics to secure the paspage of the bill empowering com inissions appointed by the governor rather than sheriffs to draw juries. He persistently advocated this meas ure before lie resigned as governor, but sinee that time, an amendment has ,beersattached to the bill providing for a referendum of the question. Hold ing that the object of the referendum is to delay the issue and eventually kill the reform, Mr. Wilson has said he feels that the people already have approved the. idea by electing the democratic legislative ticket on a platform pledged to jury reform. Candidates on Mettle. While the president himself has made no statement as to the purpose of a telegram he sent today to Gov ernor Fielder and J. Warren Davis, democratic majority leader in the *tate senate, intimations from the White. House are to the effect that the president wishes to put the various candidates for the governorship on their mettle in the present situation. We has not committed himself as yet to any of the, candidates who will run foregovernor in the primaries next September, but it is very probable that his alignment will be determined bY"the activities which the various danSidates manifest' now for or agafonst what he cohslders a piece of brogresalve legislation.

New York, March 17.-Dr. Friederich F. Friedmann is ready to treat with out charges all sufferers from tu berculosis, according to his brother, Dr. Arthur Friedmann, who declared today that it was a crime not to permit him to do so. Dr. Friedmann has been refused permission by the medical authorities of the city to give his treatment except in accordance with certain regulations. Since his arrival hundreds of sufferers have be sought him to aid them. A dozen persons suffering from pul monary tuberculosis received Dr. Friedmann's treatment at Bellevue hospital today. All were in an ad vanced stage of the disease. Hun dreds assembled outside in the hope that they might be treated, but all ex cept those previously selected were turned away. "Many of these people have come fromt out of town and they cannot be taken into the city hospitals because they do not live here," Arthur Fried man declared. He told of a victim of the disease who had laid daily siege to Dr. Friedmann at his hotel for 10 da.ys. "This man," he continued, "has a temperature of 104 and 105 and is walking about the streets. He may drop dead in the street, but Wit can not help him. Dr. Friedmann can treat only cases in hospitals and those under the care of a governmgert physi cian. There are hundreds of perqons in New York to whom he Wants to give his treatment, for the benefit. of humanity, but his hands are tied. He is eager to treat those patients, rich or poor alike, without charging. It Is a crime not to allow him to do so." The Bellevue hospital clinic was an official test in the eyes of the govern ment surgeons, Doctors Anderson and Stimson of the United States public health and marine hospital service. After treating the patients, Dr. Fried mann lectured briefly and answered many queries of the attending physi clans, according to a report from the demonstrating room. From this clinic Dr. Friedmann went to the hospital for deformities and joint diseases. He examined 25 adults and children, learned their medical history and tookc X-ray pic tures. He will examine other pa ti('nts tomorrow and will treat about 100 persons Thursday. Beginning Tuesday of next week, he announced he would hold free clinics weekly at this hospital. At the Montefiere home 11 more pa tients were treated by the Berlin physician in the presence of Doctors Anderson and Stimson. Cases` that had been showing improvement he re jected on the ground that they would not offer-a fair test of his treatment. PRISONERS ALL IRISH.

MAY LOOKING FOR JOBS Hundreds of Applications for Appoint ments Pour in Upon Demoorats Congressman Evans Has Charge of Western Montana and Will Make Several Changes. Washington, March 17.-(Speeial.) The, troubles of the new Montana con gressional delegation are just bhogin ning. The question of the settlement of political patronage, which is the one great source of trouble to the. party in power, is alreand causing some, trouble to Senators Myers and Walsh and the incoming mail to Con gressmen Evans and Stout is heavily laden with appeals from the local democratic politicians in every county in Montana. Under the geographical division of the state agreed upon by Messrs. Evans and Stout in the matter of postoffice appo'ntments. there are pending for immediaten appolenment in the west side count'es, five persiden. tial postmasters to be recommended by Evans, and nine in the eastern' counties to be settled by Stout. Evans' immediate troubles center about the postofflees at Plains, Deer Lodge, and Dillon. At Plains nearly every patron of the office-democrat progressive, republican and socialist, has petitioned Evans for the re-ap pointment of the present incumbent, Mr. Coulter. The patrons of the Plains postofflce ale practically unani mous in their expressed views that Coulter has made a methodical and obliging officer and ask to have him re-appointed. It is understood, how ever that one single "old line demo crat" at Plains Is urging Congressman Evans to "turn the rascals out" and is urging the appointment of Mr. Cos tello-a "democrat of the Jeffersonian school"-for the place. As all the fourth-class postmasters are now under the provisions of the civil serv ice rules, the tendency everywhere seems to be toward extending the, merit system to all postoffice appoint ments. At Eureka, in Lincoln county, the patrons of the office have, with one or two exceptions, also petitioned the democratic congressmen to 'have the present postmistress, the widow of an old soldier, renamed for another term, as her record for officiency has been most excellent At Deer Lodge a democrat will be named to succeed the present post nmauter, Mr. ildred, who also has a good record for efficiency, but the local democratic politicians demand the place. At Dillon 1Miss Grace Lamont, who has faithfully served as postmistress for the past 18 years, will also be succeeded by a democrat. The pressure for appointment to federal office upon the democratic Senators and congressmen is without parallel since Cleveland's first elec tion. One democratic senator from a western state now has to consider the relative merits of 52 democrats, each one of whom knows that he should be appointed marshal for that state. One democratic congressman from Georgia is said to have over 3,000 unanswered letters in 'his desk relative to postoffices In his single congressional district. ,All of which again brings to mind the remark Of ex-*Speaker Tom Reed, when he had finally settled upon the appointment of a republican post master in Maine, where there had been a bitter contest amnong six different applicant, "Well, I have just made five enemics and one ingrate." GREEKS TAKE TOWN. Athens, IMarch 17.-The Greeks have occupied the town of Klissura in Al bania. The Turks offered stubborn re sistance, but were forced to retire in the direction of Borat.

SUFFRAGE CONVENTION DECLARES 81G STRIKE Brussels, March 17.-The national convention on universal suffrage. which recently called off the threat ened national strike as a result of the pron.iie of the principal mayors of Belgium to do their utmost to induce the, government to take up the ques tion of revision of the constitution, now has revised its action and again has voted for a general strike, which is to be called April 4. It is stated also that this decision is irrevocable, as the government has refused to give consideration to elec toral reforms before the approaching eleotlons. rThe socialist congress, meeting on Easter, will be asked to ratify the gen efal strike, BRYAN SPEKS OF IRELAN AGAIL SECRETARY OF STATE BRYAN SAYS HOME RULE VICTORY WOULD PLEASE WORLD.

"I have been busy in Washing ton, and I had no time to prepare speeches, and I don't knaw what I shall say either at Springfield or at Lincoln. It is the first time in a good many years we democrats have had anything to celebrate in Lincolnh and that is the reason I am 'going there." iMr. Bryan took time tonight to go to the wedding of Miss Amy Wessell and Edlward Stranaky, Jr., of this city.
