In dications aro now that the bill may not reach the floor of the House until Wednesdny or Thursday, but the wrnng llng over the proposed tax on frefuht shipments hns reached such a stago that a Democratic caucus Is planned early thin week when several Democrats will seek to overthrow the freight tax provision of the bill. The original program was thnt the revenue bill, agreed upon b) a majoilty of tho Democrats of the Ways and Means Committee, would bo Introduced last Saturday and would bo formnlly re ported by that committee today. Con sideration of the bill under a special rule wns scheduled for tomorrow.

Sufficient signatures have been ob tained to call a Democratic caucus, which Is scheduled for tonight or to morrow night, unless the President brings pressuro to bear to have It post poned. It probably will requlic a letter from him to put the fielght tax through the caucus, although there Is little or no opposition to the proposed tax on beei and wines. When the caucus Is convened Repre sentatives Kitchen and darner.
