Underwood leads Movement to Pre
vail Upon Wilson, to Advance
Announced Date.
Business Men and Manufacturers
Anxious to Have Tariff
Question Settled.
On the return of President-elect Wood
row Wilson to his native country Demo
crats who are to be forceful In shaping
tariff legislation at the extraordinary
session of Congress, which Gov. Wilson
has announced he Is to call not later
than April 15. are to urge the President
elect to convene this extraordinary ses
sion of Congress on March 15. The
Democrat who Is at the head of this
movement to urge the President to call
the extraordinary session for March 15
Is Representative Oscar W. Underwood,
chairman of the Ways and Means Com
mittee. Supporting Mr. Underwood in this pol
ity are Renresentatlve Edward W.
Townscnd an'd nearly all of the New
Jersey Representatives, as well as many
from New York, the New England, the
Middle Western, Northwestern, and far
Western States. In fact. It was made
known yesterday that the vast majority
of the re-elected Democratic Represent
atives are heartily In favor of calling an
extraordinary session on March 13. Con-
coring the newly-elected members, the
sentiment, so far as It could be ascer
tained. Is agreeable to that date-
To Holtl (onfrrcilre..
With Gov. Wilson's safe return to the
executive chair at Trenton. N. J., he Is
to begin his caucuses with the leading
Democrats of the country. Not only
s he to confer with William J. Bryan.
but no leading Democrat is to be over
looked In these conferences. This
statement was made Immediately after
Hie arrival of William F. McCombs.
chairman of the Democratic National
Committee, who came here to atend
the Gridiron Club dinner.
M . McCombs had nothing to say per
sonally on this subject, but It is quite
well known that Representative Un
derwood Is to be one of the President
elect's visitors. On that visit Mr. Un
derwood. It was stated, is to suggest
to the President-elect that the quicker
the extraordinary session Is called the
better It will be for the business Inter
ests of the country, and the quicker the
new tariff bill to be prepared by Mr.
Underwood's committee and accepted or
modified by the House and the Senate,
will be ready for President Wilson's
Indrrnnod'a Attitude.
Representative Underwood said jester
i rr-mrurfln rr.1laiTiifH that If wnillrl IS
(advisable for President Wilson to call
tre extraordinary session as ojncKiy
'after March 4 as possible. I have no
(hesitation to suggest the date to be
March 13. In my dally mail are many
t Iters, principally from textile manu-
facturers. requesting that I give them
l" - e best Information at my command a
tc the new schedules for their good:
course I can give them no Information.
They write that they are slowing down

snt back to the House, and so on and
so forth, until It eventually reaches the
President for his signature.
Conld Mnke Ilnpltl Preigress.
lf we could convene the extraor
dinary session on March 13 I could al
most guarantee to the business men of
the country, in certain circumstances,
that the House bill would be .In the
hands of the Senate on April 13. Of
rourse. if the new tariff bill Is to be
adopted schedule by schedule, greater
celerity perhaps could be attained, and
yet there Is a difference of opinion on
that matter. The House could adopt a
number of schedules and they could go
over to the Senate. I feel that with
something like unanimous action and
unanimity of purpose the new tariff bill
could be adopted and signed by the
President certainly not later than July
next. The main features of the new bill
without the slightest doubt will be al
most similar. If not identical, with the
one we passed and which the President
"Without doubt the two States neces
sary to ratify the Income tax will act
favorably to that proposition durirg this
winter. In that event an income tax
would be substituted in the new bill for
the corporation and the excise tax. I
cm impressed, though, more and more
that celerity of action is due to the va
rious business Interests of the country
so that these business men may know
exactly on what lines they are to pro
ceed." Aurlraltnrlsts 3Inch Mixed.
The Democrats here feel that Prcsl'
dent-elect Wilson will confer very
largely with the Democrats in the
House and Senate who were the prin
cipals In framing the Democratic tariff
bill, which President Taft vetoed. The
agriculturists in the present House and
those elected to the next House seem
to be very much mixed over the farm
ers' free list measure. But all of these
matters arc to be thrashed out as har
moniously aa possible, especially Ne
braska's opposition to free beef.
Then, too, tne onion schedule may
come In for more or less acrimonious
dispute. The present duty on Bermuda
onions is 40 cents a bushel, which many
believe to be prohibitive. But, on the
other hand, eminent Democrats are en
gaged In onion farming., and at the low
est estimate reap a reward of I1.O0O an
acre on the onion crop. These Demo
crats, some of them very' close to Mr.
Bryan, announced yesterday that they
would oppose the reduction of the tariff
on Bermuda onions.

state of Mexico. Although Francisco

were committed by the Catholics at
the polls, and contends that the gov

The alleged naming of Flores Magon

Junta at El Paso was wholly unauthor

Gov. John A. Dix of New York spent
considerable time on the floor of tho
House yesterday chatting with Demo
cratic members. Previous to his appear
ance on the floor Gov. Dlx had a long
conference with Gov.-elect William Sulzer,
who will succeed him January 1. It was
explained that the conference concerned
the estimates for the New York State
appropriations for the next year and had
no political significance. New York Stata
patronage, it was said, was-' not dis
cussed. As a Governor of a State, Gov. Dlx
was entitled to the privileges of the
floor. He spent most of his time on the
Democratic side and listened to the aca
