Washington, Aug. 14. A deputation of Democratic politicians from the Htate of Maryland had a hearing to-day before the Judiciary Commltten of the Senate on tho Question of the validity of Clov. Ooldsborough's action In .calling a special election In November for United States Senator In that State before the Maryland Legislature had met und made provision for an i lection. Ulalr I,ee, former State Senator, who came within nom-1 one vote of being the Democratic nom' Inee for Governor, Is the only announced Democratic candidate for the Senatorshtp. Indications are that he will be elected. Statements made by several Senators, In cluding -Senator tUcon of Georgia., con cerning the Maryland Senutorshlp since the Issue was raised by the action of the Oovernor of Alabama have alarmed the Democratic leaders of Maryland and led to-day's conference. William ftawles of Unltlmore argued In favor of the validity of the election to be held In November. Hlalr Lee also was present, Tic was accompanied by Will iam M. lamar, assistant' Attorney-den-eral for the Post Office Department, and George Lamar. Following the conference Senator Bacon expressed the opinion that while the ac tion of tho Governor In calling the elec tion before the Maryland Legislature had made provision for It might be Irregular the Senate probably would take the view that the election was a choice by the people and would be accepted as a com pliance with the amendment. The matter has been discussed between Republicans and Democrats In the Sen ate and It Is understood that If the man chosen at the election In November does not .present nimseir to lane ins pain or , suggested that by Inserting the word "In- ?.'eJtn. i'L,?,vM;j?'Lhnue,,tlini vestment" before the word "securities" lure meets In January no objection will . v,.u. .., , ., , be made to his taking the oath of office, the danter of banks refusing to discount The Democrats have practically acquiesced !

All hope, for u recess of Congress after the tariff bill Is passed or for the postponement, of cur rency legislation until the regular session In December disappeared to-night when the Democratic caucus of the Senate adopted n resolution recommending to Congress that currency legislation be tnken up as soon as the tariff bill Is out of the way. Tliu resolution Is as follows: "Wcoli'ert, That Congress should pro ceed to consider and determine legisla tion concerning currency and banking Im mediately following the passage, of the pending tariff bill." The uctlon of the caucus to-night was the result of Insistence on the part of President Wilson that this programme be followed. Many Democrats In the Sen ate yielded to the President's wishes against their own deslies. The vote In the caucus was almost unanimous. It Is acknowledged that the, action of the caucus probably has brought about a situation which will prolong tho con sideration of the tariff bill In the Senate and keep Congress In continuous session throughout the fall, merging the special session with the regular December ses sion. Want Vreeland Law Modlflr'd. Tho Democratic caucus, which met at 8 o'clock to-night, concluded Its work In two and a half hours. Besides adopting tho resolution regarding currency legis lation the caucus declared In favor of the passage of some, legislation either sep arately or with the general currency measure looking to a modification of the Vreeland currency law and an extension of the life of that law. The admlssloiu was made to-night by conservative Democratic leaders that tho radicals who hae presented amendments In tho Houso canons demanding recog nition In the Administration banking bill of agricultural paper as a basis for the Issue of currency or the creation of a credit, liavo practically won a victory. Notwithstanding the statement Issued yesterday by President Wilson. In which he urged that the question of agricultural credits should not be agitated tn the con sideration of the pending bill, tit tight In caucus to-day hinged on the Itagsdale Henry amendments, which propose to give warehouse certificates Issued against agri cultural staples the same standing as a basis for currency or credit n prime commercial paper." A compromise on this question that will draw to the support of the Administration bill a number of Dem ocrats who have been won ovpr In the last few days by the arguments of such radicals us Itepreentatlves Henry if Texas, Wlngo of Arkansas and Nteley jf Kansas Is now In the process of making. In fact a concrete amendment by way of compromise was proposed to-day by Rep resentative Underwood, the Democratic leader, who reached the conclusion that unless concessions were made the Admin istration bill would either be reject! d in caucus or go to the House wth the sup port of only a ullm majority. What Itarilrala Want. The Issue as preeenled to-day may he summarised as follows: The conservatives contend that the hill In Its present form authorizes the ledls count of agricultural wnirhouse receipts where such receipts are Indorsed by ;i member bank. This Is conceded by the radicals, who Insist, however, that thli authority is permissive und ptobably never would become effective under the languuge of the bill as at present drawn. They want an amendment drawn tequlrliiK the rediscount of warehouse certificates and some of them have gone to the extent of demanding that such ri discounts shall Ik; made on the application of individuals or corporations to the Federal reserve banks. In the debate to-day It wus asset ted that compliance with the demands of the radicals would result In the enactment of a law that would enable such combina tions as the Standard Ull Company to control wheat, corn und cotton supplier by dealing In certificates representing these products Impounded In warehouses and thus permit them to uphold prices and restrain trade. The conservatives quote the language of section 14 of the bill In support of their contention that the credit IntcrcMs of farmers are properly cared for in tint proposed banking system. This section provides that upon the Indorsement o( any member bank any Federal reserve bank may discount notes and bills of ex change Issued or drawn for agricultural purposes, or the proceeds of which have the jrjjj, ral regejve board iwer "to deter- . . - . . . mine or aeine tne cnuracier oi me paper thus eligible for discount." The bill provides also that "such definition shall not Include notes or bill drawn for the purpose of carrying or trad ing In stocks, bonds or other securities." flee Peril tn Three Words. Radicals argue thai the words "or other securities" would put In tho hunds of the Federal reserve board authority to refuso to permit the discount of agricultural warehouse certificates. Leader Underwood suggested that the words "or other securities" lie eliminated, thus removing the danger that lurked, the radicals believed. In the chance that ware house certificates would be Inhibited by being Included as speculative paper. Representative Qlass of Virginia, In charge of the' bill, rxnressed a willing ness to accept the change, but Mr. Henry and his associates declared that specific language must be read Into the law carry ing out the principles set forth In the Ragsdalo-llanry amendments. Representative Seldomrldge of Colorado 15, 1913.. loans would be subjected to the outrage of being Interrogated as to how they proposed to disburse the money they sought to borrow. This view, It was nald, was echoed by Speaker Clark, who declared that the bnnks had no right to question h man ns to the need for the money that he wanted to borrow. Defends Bankers' side, "Any banker who curried on his busi ness In accord with such a principle would not long survive," said Representative Ulass. "HuslncDS prudence requires that bankers shall elicit Information as to how money thut Is borrowed Is to be disbursed and It Is prepostci.ius to suggest that such lnterrognt6rles in Improper." The debates In tho caucus have been Increasing In bitterness and It would not surprise the leaders If tho fight over the currency question iisutted In alignments that would bring Into being two distinct factions In the Democratic House organi zation. Tho Underwood leadership has held the whip hand over the organisation, but Mr. Underwood himself took the lead tJ-day In an attempt to persuade those In charge of the bill to make concessions to the radicals. To-day's developments demonstrated that there are a number of Democrats In tho House led by Mr. Henry who will not always prove responsive to White Houee Influence. NO RECESS, SAYS WILSON. Wants Currency ns Well lis Tariff Bill This Session. Washington,. Aug. 14. The general estimate put forward to-day of tho time that will be consumed In consideration of the tariff bill carries It up well toward the first of October. Efforts that have been aolng on for nearly a week on the floor of tho Senate to bring about an ngrrment for a date foi a final vote on tho tariff bill came to naught to-day, when, following a caucus of Democratic Seuatois. Chairman Simmons submitted a proposal for unanimous consent to have the vote on August -0. At tho Democratic conference of Sena tors, which lasted for an hour this morn, lug and then adjourned until to-night. proosals were seriously put forward by Senator James Hamilton Lewis. Senator Chamberlain and others to reach an agree ment by which the extra session of Con gress should take a recess after the passage of the tariff bill until somo date not earlier than October 16 and not later than No ember 15. Senator Lewis, "whip" of the Senate, was active yesterday among his Democratic colleagues und came Into tho caucus this niuruliiK feeling that he could command a majority of his own party In favor of a recess for at least thirty days following the passage of the tariff bill. Hut he was not long In the conference before he discovered that the President and his friends had been busy last night und thla morning, Senator Ollle James camu direct from the White House with a mesage from the President that he was unalterably opposed to recess of Congresi and Insists that the current legislation be passed at this session. Mtnntlnn I Illumed. Secretary Tumulty went to the Senate yesterday afternoon and conferred with a few of the President's closest friends on the Democratic side. Including Senators James of Kentucky and Hughes of New Jersey. It was Insisted laM night that his visit to the Capitol had iij significance, but Secretary Tumulty's footprints were plainly tiaceabtc to-day. After Senator James had made known to the caucus the President's wishes In the. matter the entire situation changed and only a small number of Democratic Sena tors wore wlllinu to liislt on putt'ng the currency question over for another ses sion. When the caucus adjourned Senator James estimated tin' thlrty-elaht out of the forty-nine Democrats weic in favor of upholding the President. ' The onl othei Important action taken by the caucus In the morning vssloii out side of tllllii. routine committee vacancies Mas lo iiti' down a motion to open the doors and hold the cauc'J In public.

Wtien It became known, immediately after the morning caucus adjourned, lint there was no likelihood of ugixlng on a recess of Collicre" the Republicans were very much disgusted and predictions were frcly made that If t'ongiess was to be held in session it might ns well take plenty of time analyzing and illscussliu; the tariff bill. Therefore when Senator SlmmoiiH came forward with a suggestion to si t a date for a llual Mite on the tnrlff he was met with a chorus of piotests from tho Republican side that soon con vinced him that there ws no possibility of an euily termination of the tariff de bate. The Senate gave a striking Illustra tion of the situation by consuming six bouts In considering an amendment to put wheat on the free list. WEST LIKES CURRENCY BILL.
