Decision to Call an Extra Ses?

Others Favor "Getting It
Over With"?Attitude
of Progressives.
I From Tb?*. Tribune Bureau 1
Washington, Nov. ID.?The decision of
President-elect Wilson to call a sped?.'
asesten of Congress noon after his Inaugu?
ration met with the approval of such
l>emocratic leaders as are now in the cap?
ital, the matter evidently having been dis
CttSBSi from the point of view of political
Strategy, and the course decided on as
at least an ailroit move to avoid the mis?
hap.?? that befell President Cleveland.
?speaker Clark, who arrived In Wash?
ington to-day, expressed himself as much
l leased with the announcement that a
special session was to be called. If the
tariff was to be revised, he ?aid. It should
be done at once. He pointed out that the
I '? aBOCratk defeats during the Cleveland
.vlmlnistration followed closely on the
beeil of tariff revision. He argued that If
Ihe tariff had been revised a year l>efor.>
? lection the Democratic party would have
been successful.
It was the part of wisdom for the
Daaaocratta party, according to the Speak?
er, to undertake taiiff revUlon early in
lite Wilson administration, in order that
the conditions resulting from the legisla?
tion might reach a normal level before the
unie for another election arrived. He als...
fTprassad the belief that a tariff levislon '
could be accomplished within sixty days. I
and that if no oilier Important subjects I
were to be considered the session would ?
aot last longer,

**Will the Democrats receive the sup?

"That will depend upon their perform?

twenty-five Progressive members of tho
House, who will ?aucu? separately and be
a separate political entity, and no doubt
they will be glad to support the Wilson
programme If It squares with their own
belief. But. remember, the Progressives

Representative Henry George, of New
York, said: "The extra session of Con?
gress should bt very short, and confined
altogether to tariff legislation, so as to

to the cry of these strikers for bread,

detective of the mill owners.
Will Stay in Jail.
"My counsel will endeavor to arrange
