HE GOES TO WASHINGTON Thinks Congress Will Follow Wilson's Interpretation of Party Pledge s. (Fro/n Th? Tribune Bureau. 1 Washington. Nov. 10.-William J. Bryan arrived In Washington to-night and will spend about a week here with his son. William J. Bryan, jr., a stifdent at Georgetown Unlveraity U? School. "The Cornmonei" was silent on th, re? port that he will be tendered th, office of Secretary of Stats by Prasldeiit-etect Wll aon, but h, expressed the conviction that the Democratic Congress would undertake a downward revision of the tariff and fulfil the promises laid down in the Bal? timore platform, "as Interpreted by Gov? ernor Wilson." In regard to the possibility of a- special session of Congress Mr. Bryan said: I do not care to discuss th, question of a spe.ial session of Congress, as Governor Wilson has It under advisement, further than to iay that I have for several yeare . favored a change In the sessions so as ! to make the first session convene Imme- I dlatelv after Inauguration, so that the second sesrlon would end before th, next election This would give a double ad? vantage? first, it would give a more Im? mediate response to the wishes of the people as expressed at the polla, and. second, it would relieve the country of the disadvantages attendant upon the ses? sion now held after the Presidential elec? tion. "Will th, fact that the D?mocratie vic? tory was due to a division of the Repub? lican partv rather than a material gain In the Democratic party prevent the Democrats from carrying out their i pledges regarding a reduction in the tariff*" was asked. "No." Mr Bryan promptly replied "If the Republicans felt that th, tariff re? ductions as promised in the Democratic platform would Injure the country they would have stood together and tried to prevent Democratic auocese. Each wing Of the Republican party admitted that the succee, of the other would be worse than Democratic victory." "1 take it for granted that Congress will ict along lines laid down by the Balti? more platform, as Interpreted by Gov? ernor Wllaon." said Mr. Bryan regarding probable action on the tariff. 'Governor Wilson has Insisted In hia speeches that there should be a reduction Of the tariff and legislation which will rBSBS a private monopoly impossible."
