PRICE ONE 'GENT n Wat Tforftmgtcm Wimt$ UNDERWOOD IN HARMONY PLEA Democratic Leader Tells Cau cus of the Necessity of Avoiding Discord. ASSIGNMENTS ARE DECIDED Members Appointed to Five CommitteesThe Ways and Means-Slate Is Approved. The Democrats of the House today resumed their caucus behind closed doors, following the decisive vote yesterday when the Carlin resolution for an open caucus was defeat? The caucus today first turr attention to the assignment o the Are committees necessary to transact the routine business of the House and the Ways and Means Committee slate was approved with but little opposition. Majority Leader Underwood then took the floor and began a plea for party harmony in tariff revision, ask ing his colleagues to subordinate personal differences for the good of the party in its effort to reform the Payne law. Wants Blanket Bill Congressman Underwood also advocated- a revision of the tariff In a Manket bill Instead of schedule by schedule. It' Is Believed 'that the blank et revision will be approved ultimately by the Democrats. President Wilson is understood to fa .vor a revision In one b:ll, but the Pres ident was less fortunate in his desire for an open caucus. The Underwood forces in the House -late yesterday overwhelmingly voted down a proposi tion to throw open the doors. Owing to the caucus there was no session of the House today. As mem .bars nid the caucus, . room- they wer given" a KXtpage handbook com piled by former Clerk Daniel p. Koper, ui tne Ways and Means committee. Mr. Roper Is now First Assistant Postmaster General. The handbook is full of statistical matters relating to the probable effect of the Democratic tariff revision from a revenue raising standpoint, but does not carry the to tal revenue' expected under the Un derwood bill. This estimate wag de clared In the majority report of the Ways and Means Committee. The caucus, wnlch may extend through two days. Is going to be a spirited affair. This was shown yes terday, .when for two hours the mili tant Democracy wrangled over the luestlon of throwing the doors open to the public. Congressman Underwood, majority leader, and Congressman Palmer, an Administration spokesman, (Continued on Sixth Page.), Twenty Days' Annual Leave for Firemen Members of the tire department can be granted only twenty days' annual leave, according to an opinion ot the Corpora tion Counsel, submitted to the Commis sioner today. Request that they be allowed twenty-four days was made re cently on the ground that, under the regulations, each fireman Is allowed one day off in five, and that therefore when nn annual furlough a member loees the four days he would receive were he on duty. The Corporation Counsel holds, how over, that the limit of twenty days annual leave, provided for In the Dis trict appropriation bill, cannot be ex cecded. Tho bill provides that leaves of absence for members of the Fire De partment exceeding twenty days In any one year shall be without pay. Wealthy Young Man Sentenced to Jail AL.LENTOWN. Pa., April 9.

TREASURY OFFICIALS ANGRY Secretary McAdoo Forbids His Subordinates to Give Out News of Department. Fear that the customs frauds first discovered in Boston may have been perpetrated in many of the large Atlantic coast ports of entry seized Treasury officials today. Frauds of the "sleeper trunk" and "marked cask" variety are now known to have been worked in New" York and the vicinity of Philadelphia, as well as in Boston. Investigation is going on in other cities to determine if the swindlers operated there. That Chester, Pa., a subport of entry for Philadelphia, had become involved in the scandal was learned today when Secretary McAdoo with reluctance- admitted that the resig nation of C. W. Hill, collector of cus toms at Chester, had been demanded. Lax Methods Alleged. Personal dishonesty Is not charged against Hill but it Is intimated that lax ity in the conduct of his office made It possible for the frauds to be worked just as they were In New Tork and Boston. According to gossip in the Treasury, extreme 'anger exists In high officials that the scandal Is developing and spreading In spite of the lid clamped on Treasury Department news by Sec- T-Atnr XtrAHAn. That Hill reft!cnat1nn had been peremptorily demanded was! not learned hore- first but In Phlladel-j Phia and was reluctantly confirmed! 'here. Attempts to find out about the origin al "leak" In the matter of thu customs scandal through the investigation which Secretary McAdoo ordered are report ed to have been unsuccessful and this Is said to be one. of the reasons why the Secretary of the Treasury ordered tho jiq ciampea on news giving Dy aivision and bureau chiefs. Only the Comptrollers of the Currency and the Treasury are immune irom tne order and these with respect to routine Items of bank Incorporations and de cisions on points In auditing Govern ment bills. All News Is Barred. As the order now stands, the head of the Revenue Cutter Service sending a cutter to the rescue of a disabled vessel could not give assurance of the order even to relatives of men on board the vessel. A similar state of affairs pre vails with respect to the life-saving service. To add to the troubles of the depatr ment. the Secretary of the Treasury is having difficulty In finding a man whom he tvants for the Assistant Secretary ship in charge of the division of cus toms. Assistant Secretary James F. Curtis Is continuing to serve in this post, although he Is eager to close his desk and get to Boston, where he will practice law. Civil Service Pension Advocate Sees Wilson The question of civil service pensions came before President Wilson for the first time today, when Congressman Hamlll of New Jersey presented Mlcha.i F. O'Donoghue to the Executive. A brief presentation of the subject was made. President Wilson told his visitors that he haj made no decision regarding the matter, and that his mind was open to arguments on any or all sides of the rase. Secretary of State Bryan wns the first caller upon the President today, but the conference did not result in any an nouncement belnt made as to the recog nition of China nor other questions now pending before the State Department. Woman's Charges May Be Sent to Senators Vice President Marshall today re turned to the signers papers which they had presented to him making serlojs allegations against a Western Senator for alleged Indignities offered a womin. He held that the matter was not privi leged for presentation to the Senate. The husband of the woman In the case said today ho would send every Senator a copy of his wife's statement of allegations against tho Senator, to gether with a demand for a Senatorial Investigation.

Ky.. lb pro vided for In a bill offered today by Senator Borah, President Confers With Sena tor on Legislation for First Time Since Adams' Day. PROPRIETY IS DISCUSSED Republicans Twit Democrats With Prospects of Being Under "Big Stick." For the first time since the days of George Washington and John Adams a President of the United States is today visiting the Capitol for the purpose of taking direct part in councils pertaining to legislation. The action of President Wilson yesterday in shattering precedents and rcadinc his message to both houses was followed by the an nouncement today that at 3 o'clock this afternoon he would go to the President's room at the Senate end of the Capitol and confer with the Democratic members of the Finance Committee. The tariff situation is to be the subject of discussion. Caused Stir of Statesmen. News that the President would again visit the Capitol today and would con-f-r with tho Democratic members of the Finance Committee on the tariff situation at 3 o'clock this afternoon caused a stir In Congress circles as great as when It was disclosed the Executive would deliver his message In person to the two houses of Congress. The visit of the President ! mn.ln solely on his own Initiative. This state ment was made by Senator Simmons, chairman of the Finance Committee, who said the President had rfnuminl ih. Democratic members of the committee w incei mm in tno resident s room. This revolutionary course Is in ac cordance with the intention which has tieen rrvAfp.1! AvnAM. ft... ,wi . Ident- However, mnny believed hr would not actually carry out his plan and particularly that he would not visit the Capitol lmmedltaely after reading his message to Congress and thus smashing a precedent inviolable since the days of John Adams. Propriety Is Questioned. acmimeni is wmeiy divided among Senators as to the wisdom and the pro priety or tne course taken by the Presi dent. Not since tho days of Rm. r ..!,. lngton has a President visited the Capi tol for the purpose of meeting directly with Senators and talking with them about legislation. Washington tried It and Is said to have left the Canltal on day vowing he would not go near the piace again. Under the surface, there Is much feel lntr airalnst the method tho TrlHn Is adopting, but at the same time vari ous senators rnendly to the President are commending his course. Republican Senators are twitting their Democratic brethren and asking them how .they enjoy having the Big Stick held over them "What If Theodore Roosevelt had done this?" asked a Republican Senator today. "What would the Democrats have said then?" May Segregate Schedules. Senator Simmons said the question of segregating certain schedules from the tariff bill, especially wool and 3ugar, would doubtless be taken up. Nearly all the Finance Committee Democrats told the President last Saturdar that these schedules ought not to be han dled separately. The President promised to take the question up with Chairman Underwood, of Ways and Means. Senator Simmons said this morning that If tho sugar schedule alone were segregated It would relieve tho situa tion and probably be sufficient. How ever, he felt It advisable. In order to make sure, to treat both sugar and wool reparately President Wilson's visit to the Capitol this afternoon will be made with t le utmost simplicity He will go without any formality. The Scrgeant-at-arm.i of the Senate said a special detail nf police would be provided at the Senate end of the Capitol to Insure his F.ifety. This will be the same arrangement as is made when the President visits the Capitol nt the end of a session to sign bills.

The postponement of the organization of the House committee until early May Is the plan of the House leaders. Strong opposition to such a postponement re veloped In the party caucus today, as the average member wants to know immediately what committee assign ments ho Is to receive. Some members contend that the with holding of committee assignments Is a club over tho head of the House, membership and la designed to force through the Underwood tariff bill with out friction. The Ways and Means Committee, which framed the tariff bill. Is also the Commltteo on Com mittees, and in refusing to hand out choice committee places now it retains a certain grip on the control ot the House. The present plan of the House lead ers Is to name only the committees neces sary for the legislative routine Rules. Accounts, Mileage, Enrolled Bills, and Wajs and Means and Ut postpone the creation of all other standing commit tees until May 1, or thereafter. Al though a fight in caucus Is inevitable. Leader Underwood is believed to have the votes to put through the program outlined by the Ways nnd Means Com mittee, and the members probably will have to wait until the tariff debate Is ended to ascertain what committee berths they are to draw.

Distinct symptons of a Democratic attack on past methods of administer Ing the civil service and of a disposi tion to make reprisals developed in ttu Senate today. For days, there has been talk that It was the purpose of many Democrats in Congress to take advan tage of the loopholes In the civil ser vice law to load the service down with Democrats as far as possible. Senator Overman introduced a sweep ing resolution calling for Information of the most comprehensive sort as to the civil service situation. It calls for the laws and orders under which the Civil Service Commission exists and by which the civil service system nas been oxtended; the number of civil ser ive employes in each department; the number of persons covered lnthe civil service system by executive orders since January 1. 1300. he date and copy of the order: the number of persons In the classified service from each State, Territory and the District, and other Information along these lines. Senator Urlstow Insisted that the reso lution should go back to tho beginning and call for Information as to the num ber of persons covered Into the service by executive order since the beginning of the operation of the system. Senator Overman accepted this amendment It Is of Importance because It Is expected to show that In Cleve land days largo numbers of Democruts were covered into the service by Execu tive order. Senator Swanson wanted to know how many persons had been put Into the service without examination. He thought the resolution should Include an inquiry as to tnat matter. After further discussion, the resolu tion went over on objection by Senator Jones, who said he wanted to study it. -- AprtnWn Yilllth l M- -Gi I IUI1 1 1 IUUUIIO Sentenced for Assault ALLENTOWN, Pa..
