Kern Will Probably Displace
Martin - Tariff Plans and
Other Points Are to Be
WASHINGTON. Feb. 27. The poli
cies of the now administration and
plans of the new congress. It Is be
lieved, wilt be outlined fairly well
within, the next two days. Democrat
ic leaders have prepared for party
reorganization immediately after Mr.
Wilson )a Inducted Into office. Points
about which there has been specula-1
tion for many weeks will be cleared
up by March C. These Include the
make-up of President Wilson's Cabi
net the relations between Mr. Wil
bon and William J. Bryan, the per
sonnel of the 'democratic membership
of the tar.ff making ways and means
committee, the scope of the reorgan
ization tight In the senate, and the
convening the extra session of con
gress. The house caucus, which will meet
on March . will select the democrat
Ic members or the ways and means
committee, attend to other matters
of party, xcorganlzat on, and lay the
foundation of tariff discussion.
The -ftauxanization fight in thu'
senate, after many conferences dur
ing the last few weeks, apparently
has centered about the effort to make
Senator John W Kern of Indiana
caucus chairman an office that has
tioen held by Senator Mart.n of Vir
ginia. The so-called progressive dem
ocrats of the senate said today 'hat
the selection of Senator Kern would
be part of a comprehensie plan of
senate reorganization In which all
elements of the party would be
brought together.
The house caucus, it is likely, will
name members of the banking ant
currency committee and select ai
least tentatively the heads of other
important committees and house of
ficers. Champ Clark will again be
Bjn-jker. and Oscar W. Underwood
floor leader and chairman of the
ways and means committee.
The kind of revision favored by the
present ways and means committee
is unknown. Chairman Underwood
and members of the committee have
refused to commit themselves as fav
orlng any particular rates of duty, or
any exact plans Tor revision. The
general subject of the tariff will be
taken into the caucus of March J.
and considered by the full democratic
membership of the new house In ad
vance of any positive action by .be
ways and means committee in pre
paration of tariff bills.
It Is expected that President Wit
ton's call for an extra session of
congress will specify ,the tariff as the
subject for immediate consideration
but that the way will be left open
for the consideration of other urgent
matters. While Mr. WHson has not
said that he would bring currency re
form to the Immediate consideration
of congress, the subject undoubtedly
will come up early In the session, be
cause of the desire of many demo
crats that the "money trust" Invest
Ration be resumed and that a much
more thorough Inquiry be made Into
financial affairs, and into the char
acter of Federal legislation needed.
Tbe senatd will tale tic action at
this cession on the treatv- recently
negotiated with the Republic of Ni
caragua, by which the United State
would secure for JS.WW'O the per
Ietual, exclusive right to build an
inter-oceanic canal through this conn
try. This was determined at a meet
ing of the senate foreign relations
committee today.
A carefully drawn system of com
pensation for personal injuries to

The canal act passed last August

of employes. Every canal employe and
the family dependent upon his is! In

senate special committee appointed
to Investigate alleged activity of
Americans In Inciting and aiding
Mexican revolutionists since 1910,

and that the neutrality laws had been
violated in their behalf, but strictly
enforced against the Orozco forces
when Madero came Into power.
The volume presented to the ien
ate today contained no statement of
conclusions or summary of the evi
dence. Many witnesses expressed be

centering In financial circles in New-
York, had aided the Madero forces.
The committee is understood to be

Off, But Sonora Advices
DOUGLAS, Feb. 27. (Special to
The Review) Dr. Jose S. Saenz,
formerly high in the counsel of Por
flrlo Diaz, later the author of much
of the Vasquista literature and gen
erally considered the brains of the
Gomez revolutionary campaign, has
established himself here tor tbe pur
pose of conveying to the people ot
Sonora through personal interviews
and otherwise the wish of the Hue ta
administration that they refrain from
actions of violence or revolutionary
kind until the administration can an
nounce its plans for the future.
Dr Saenz says the administratrix
program will be ready for publica
tion within ten days and that not on
ly Provisional President Huerta but
all members of his official family
stand ready to resign If it does not
meet with the general approval of
the Mexican public. He is satisfied
that It will find sanction In Sonora
and that the people of that state will
make a mls'ake that they will regret
if the'y do not waltror the pronunira
mento. From his best advices and from
otlier advices received here today,
disaffection in Sonoia ls not of -no
general tort that advices earlier !u
the week indicated as probable. The
removal of Governor Maytorena from
office and bis succession by Senor
Pasqueirel is reiorted to have beua
accomplished at Hermosillo without
serious clash, and with no prospect
of the latter at this time. The dis
turbance ot railroad communication
in the vicinity of Fronteras by the
destruct'on of two bridges and the
c ltting of the telephone and telo-
giauh wires will probably be renie-
died tomorrow by the completion ot
repairs by the Federal troops sent
south on Wednesday from Agua
Prleta and who have had no conflict
with the jbel band so far as known.
Dr Saerfz slated his mission here
and h's hopes today In a written in
terview submitted to the press nnd
accompanied by an optimistic person
al interview as to the immediate fu
ture ot Mexico. He docs not antici
pate trouble in Sonora, believing that
cool judgment will prevail there as
well as elsewhere In the republic
from now on. In nis signed inter
view. Dr. Saenz says in part:
"I am here as a special represen
tative of the government to appanl
to the Mexican people ot Sonora to
establish peace and order and do .;ot
represent" any political party.
"I was appointed to the position
by General De La Fuente. who is
now cabinet minister of communisu
tlons, and who has taken a great
deal of Interest In the welfare ot
the Sonora people and wants to do
all in his power to give tbem peace,
justice and order. He desires that
tbe people co-operate with him and
myself In order that 1 may success
fully accomplish the objects or y
mission. I want the people of ihe
state ot Sonora to be calm for a few
days more until Mr. De La Fuente
has had time to confer with the f
tldals at Mexico City.
"If their plans are not approved
by the? people of Mexico when they
are announced, then Mr. Hiente. tne
other cab'net officials and Provi
