Shop and Mail Early Drive to
Be Started Tomorrow in
With a limply warning that only 31
chopping days remain beiore Christmas,
the Merchants and Manufacturers' As
sociation tomorrow will launch its shop
early, mail early campaign in an effort ;
to prevent the wasted efforts and fra*- .
tried nerves that once marked the an- !
nual last-minute holiday rush.
Mai. Gen. Anton Stephan, president
of the organisation, announced last
night completion of the general plans
foT the campaign, which will be con
ducted with full co-operation of the
Washington Post Office, under direc
tion of Postmaster W. M. Mooney.
Merchants throughout the county, who
havfe learned from past experience the
disappointments to the public result
ing from a belated rush of Christmas
shopping, are joining in similar es-:
forts, Gen. Stephan said.
By means of every available device. 1
the shop early, mail early slogan will i
be carried to the public. Street car
signs, poster* on trucks, motion picture
films and envelope stuffers will be uti- i
iired to convince the public that the
Christmas package and card that is
put off until tomorrow is more likely
to arrive as a New Year rather than a
Christmas remembrance. Radio an
nouncements. through the co-operation
of local stations, will bring the message j
of the campaign direct to thousands of
Local dealers as early as la*t Spring
laid plans to care for this Christmas,
and while Washington was enjoying
balmy breezes orders were placed for
shipments to rome from distant lands.
Local shops this week will have full
Christmas supplies available and
within a few days windows will be
dressed in gala fashion with Christ
mas goods.
The peak load of Christmas mailing
•nd shopping last year was moved for
ward by this method, and this year the
merchants’ board decided to make the
campaign still earlier. It. was pointed out
v Mark Lansurgh. chairman of the
committee in charge. Serving with Mr
Lansburgh on the special committee
are A. J. Sundlun, C. B. Dulcan. Rob
ert E. Buckley. J. Hardey. A. Abbott.

for the regular session would have the I
right of way.
Although members of the “young
guard’’ are seeking to avoid all sem
blance of assailing the present Senate
Republican leadership, the fact that
the group has sprung into being tends ■
toward a new alignment with changes j
in leadership, if not actually and for- I
mally in leaders.
In pome quarters there l* a demand
that Senator McNary of Oregon, chair
man of the committee on agriculture,
who handled the farm bill in the Sen
ate and who is considered one of the
ablest men on the Republican side of
the chamber, take a leading part in
straightening out the tariff tangle. It !
may be that he will act in this matter
quietly, but there is no likelihood of any
action being taken either to displace
Senator Watson or Senator Jones.
Further Delay Is Opposed.
The “young guard.” composed of Re
publicans who have for the most part
come to the Senate in recent years,
has put its shoulder to the wheel In
the hope not only of passing the tariff i
bill without further delay, but also In j
an effort to stem the tide of bitterness >
which has been flowing more and more j
strongly and dividing the Republican
“old guard" and the progressive Re- j
publicans from the West.
When the Senate has completed >
consideration of all committee amend- |
raents, the bill will be thrown open (
to amendments from individual mpm- t
bers of the Senate, offered from the j
floor. Already, however, one Senator <
who has prepared nearly 100 amend- |
ments to be offered has Indicated he •
will forego, them, provided there is a
real chance of getting final action on I
the bill and sending it to conference, i
There is also a disposition on the part ;
of many of the Senato-s to curtail j
their speeches and in some cases, not |
to make speeches at all. so as to per- !
mit the voting to come more aulckly. |
Amendments approv'd \esterday
would increase existing rates on peppers,
eggplant and cucumbers from 25 per
cent ad valorem to 3 cents a pound,
and on squash from 25 per cent to 2
rents a pound. Committee proposals
for a seasonal tariff on eggplant and
cucumbers, under which a half-rent
* rate would be applicable in Winter
months, were turned down
The tariff on hay would be boosted
from $4 to $5 a ton under another
amendment adopted, while the rate on
straw would be increased from #1 to
#1.50 a ton.
Broom corn was taken from the free |
list and given a rate of $lO a ton. The 1
committee proposed $25. Lupulin. a .
powder that grows on hops and is used !
as a digestive tonic, was granted a 100 j
per cent increase from 75 cents to $1.50 |
a pound.
Senator Gillett, Republican, of Mas- '
sachucftts. succeeded in having adopted ■
an amendment to place a duty of 4 i
cents a pound on sweetened cocoa and j
chocolate when in bars or blocks of i
10 pounds or more. The House bill j
provided 40 per cent, and the present
law 17 */2 per cent ad- valorem.
One of the changes approved in the
spirits schedule would place a duty on
concentrated fruit juices fit for bever
age purposes of 70 a gallon, based
on the quantity or equivalent of uncon
centrated natural fruit juice into which
such concentrated juice can be con
verted as shown bv chemical analysis.
