Outgenerals Regular Faction
and Enlists Democratic
Result of Lengthy Fight Means a
Further Embarrassment
After a struggle In the Senate yester
day Wh'ch lasted from noon until nearly
midnight. Senator La Follette again
emerged as the successful champion of
tariff revision. The little Wisconsin
Senator quickly seized upon an opening
offered him by the regular Republicans
and the Democrats and forced the adop
tion by the Senate of the Identical La
Follette wool revls on bill that was in
troduced by him at the last session and
passed by the Senate This was the
measure that served as the basis of
compromise last session with, the Demo
crats of the House, and the Indications
are that It will again be used by Leader
Underwood and his colleagues In send
ing a wool revision b'U to the White
Every effort was made by the regular
Republicans In the Senate to block the
passage of the La Follette bill, but the
Democrats, having seen their own meas
ure go down to defeat as the result of
a trick turned by the regulars at the
last minute. Joined hands with La Fol
lette and voted to put his measure
through. The Wisconsin statesman was
highly elated and the Taft supporters
were correspondingly downcast
President In a Hole.
The turn of affairs will put the Presi
dent In an embarrassing situation. He
vetoed the La Follette-Underwood com
promise wool bill at the last session on
the ground that the tariff board had not
made Its report Since then the tariff
board has handed down Its findings, and
the President. If he vetoes a wool bill
this session, will have to do It after con
sidering the merits of the measure If
the President signs the bill, the Republi
can Insurgents and the Democrats will
carry off the glory.
The La Follette bill, as It passed tha
Senate, provides for a duty of 33 per
cent on raw wool., with duties ranging
from 40 to 53 per cent on the manufac
tures of wooL
President Taft's friends have acknowl
edged that the duty of S3 per cent Pro-,
posed by ia Tolle.ie On rav wool, cor
responded pretty closely ti the finding!
of the tariff board, but they have con
tended that the rates proposed by him
on manufactures were too low. The com"
promise measure evolved by Underwood
and La Follette at the last session, as It
finally went to the White House, provided
29 per cent on raw wool and correspond
ing reductions on manufactures. The
Democrats of the Senate exiect that
practically the sajne rate may be agreed
upon In the pre'ent situation.
Checkmate Penrose Bill.
La Follette snatched victory out of the
air at the very moment when the Re
publican regulars seemed to have routed
the Democrats and won a notable
triumph After an all-day debate. Senator
Penrose, chairman of the Finance Com
mittee, threw the Democrats and Pro
gressives into confusion by Introducing
a wool revision bill based on the find
ings of the tariff board. This measure
provided for reductions of from 10 per
cent on the highly finished cloth", to ap
proximately 13 per cent on lower grades,
and substantlsl reductions on other wool
en manufactures. The Penrose bill was
adopted after a bitter fight, as a substi
tute for the Underwood Houe bill, by a
vote of 34 to 32.
This vote, however, had been taken
in Committee of the Whole, and La Fol
htte, seizing upon the opportunity
quickly threw out the bill which he had
Introduced last jear. and the Demo
crats Immediately rallied to his support.
The vote on the La Follette bill, as a
substitute for the Penrose bill, which
bad been substituted for the Democratic
bill, was 39 to 27.
All of the Democrats voted for the
La Follette bill, and so did all of the
Insurgent Republicans except Bourne of
Oregon. When the roll was called on
the final passage of the bill, the lonely
Mr Bourne changed his vote and sided
with the other Insurgents.
The scenes In the Senate while the
votes were being taken were the most ex
citing that have been witnessed since the
stirring times of a ear ago

Clark and Underwood on Oppo

Bill Controversy.
Representatives Sulzer and Curley
Petition for Fourth Caucus on
Battleship Programme.
"Morning after" consideration yester
day failed to Inject any of the elements
of harmony Into the situation which the
Democratic House faces as the result
of the caucus Wednesday afternoon,
when a packed majority of the members
who attended the gathering voted to
persist in the refusal to grant any ex
tension to the battleship fleet th,ls ses
sion unless a "pork barrel" public
buildings bill is put through
The breach between the real leaders
of the House majority and the faction
which Representative Burnett of Ala
bama has rallied around his standard
widened perceptibly In the course of
a daj of d scusslon. and the most sig
nificant feature of the situation Is that
Majority Leader Underwood and Speaker
Champ Clark find themselves on oppo
site sides In the controversy.
New Petition Started.
The end of the struggle Is not yet
Representative Sulzer, of New Tork, and
Representative Curley. of Massachu
setts, reopened the controversy Jester
day afternoon by placing In circulation
a petition for another caucus on the bat
tleship question. It Is safe to say that
this fourth caucus will be called and
that the advocates of a sensible course
will enter the meeting so organized that
the tactics pursued by their opponents
Wednesday night will not be poslble.
Majority Leader Underwood yesterday
served notice that he will adopt the
most drastic measures to Insure the at
tendance of Democratic members at the
sessions of the House from now on, and
when the next caucus meets It will find
a safe majority of the Democrats In at
tendance. Wednesday's meeting failed to
bring out but a slim majority of the
Democrats, but since then a large num
ber have returned to town.
Developments jesterday Indicated clear
ly that ultimate victory awaits the cause
of thos who Ion Wednesday. If the
majority is not released from the pledge
exacted by the first caucus on the bat
tleship programme, enough will bolt the
caucus and combine with the Republicans
of the House to Insure at least a com
promise on one battleship. It Is possible
that. In the event of a bolt, two battle
ships, as provided In the Senate naval
bill, will be authorized.
