As the result of his first conference with the Democratic members of the Senate Finance Committee yesterday, rresldent Wilson learned that the Sen ate does not intend to swallow the House tariff bill whole and that it will not abdicate the right it has always ex ercised of amending the House bill. Extreme secrecy marked this, the first conference on legislative matters which has been held between members of Con. press and the Executive at the Capitol for generations. President Wilson en joined secrecy on the Senators with whom he conferred. The rule of open caucus was not observed. Nevertheless, the chief facts as to the conference were disclosed. Pleasant enough, with all exchanges suave, polite and courteous, neverthe less the tone of the conference left one fact plain. TMs is that while Senators are sot offcrlnir oDDOsltlon. outwardly at least, to conferring with the Presi dent at the Capitol, they are still stand ing on their prerogatives. President wuson was informed of the difficulties in the way of the tariff bill, of the on- position to fr,ee sugar, free wool, free nour, ana some other items, and was advised that stroncr efforts to amend the bill would be made in the upper uouse. Stand On Prerogatives. The Finance Committee Democrats for the most part adhered to the posi tion they have taken for some time, namely, that It would be much better to segregate the sugar schedule and the wool schedule. Nevertheless, the President learned that the Finance Committee democrats themselves -would do what they could to pass the bill as It came from the House. They simply told the President what he might expect. That the Senate would continue to exercise Us rights under the Constitu tion, those of amending tariff bills sent from the House, was the view pointedly conveyed by one of the members of the committee and there Is no doubt but that this represents the attitude of the stronger men on the committee. The conference lasted from 3 o'clock until 4:23. The Senate situation In de tail was gone over. The President was told what Senators opposed this sched ule ana what ones opposed that. It was agreed that the question of re vision in a single bill was up to the House caucus and that the Senate com mittee could not decide it. Oppose Single Bill. The President still took the view that it -would be better tor the Senate to accept the bill as 'it came from tjSc House. .A sroaU,.group of the Finance Committee Democrats coincided wltn the notion of revision in a single bllL but most of the committee held to their original position for segregation of certain schedules. President Wilson, on leaving the con ference, said the tariff was discussed and there was apparently no difficulty in "standing together on any sort of a party program." He said the question of separate schedule revision was a matter "for the House to determine. The. President said, mdreover, he hoped- to .-make visits of this kind fre- Opinion Is-'clvided on the 'action of the President-In taking -up-legislation at the Capitol with the legislators. Under, the surface there is plenty of frank- talk. Some of the Democrats resent It' Others approve It. Outward ly the Democratic Senators speak' well of IL Senators Simmons, O'Gorman, Hoke Smith, and Shlvely approved it Sees Danger In Course. Senator Lodge, however, looked on It as dangerous. He said: "Of course. President Wilson had a perfect right to come, but his action borders dangerously on being an en croachment by the executive dn the legislative branch of the Government There was ample constitutional warrant for. his decision to deliver his message to "Congress In person, but to sit with the ."majority members of the committee and -assist In framing a tariff bill Is another matter." Senator Penrose of Pennsylvania, for mer 'chairman of the Finance Commit tee, said: "Nobody questions the right of the President to visit Congress. He may drop in some time during an executive session and hear the debates over his nominees. That also would be all right" Colorado Residents Congratulate Keating For Free Sugar Stand The support of the people of Colorado was offered for the free sugar clause in the-new tariff today with the receipt by Congressman Edward Keating, of that State, of a telegram from Dr. Edward Jackson, as follows: "Eight hundred thousand Colorado sugar users heartily congratulate you on, your stand for free sugar. We so trtred President Wilson. Keep up the fight and free Colorado from criminal monopoly." .... Congressman Keating was elected in a frcs sugar campalyn. Dr. Edward Jackson is president of a society organ ized especially to fight for free sugar and it is declared is supported in the movement by practically every voter in Ihe States Bacon May Be First Senator Under New Law natnr Bacon of Georgia mas have the honor of being the first Senator elected under the direct elections plan, in spite of the fact the Georgia legis lature has reiused to raury tne araena mnt ... a -nw nornn Yiaa nnminntprl In inn primary last year The legislature will meet in June anu oruuiani wouiu cictt him.
