Unless the lure of the baseball park causes too much of an exodus from the chamber and breaks a quorum, the House Democrats -Rill continue their w rangling this afternoon over the Un derwood tarifl bill. The caucus reconvened at 1:30 o'clock, but Chairman Palmer was by no means confident that the party conclave could continue until C o'clock, as planned. In fact, the caucus chairman and other Democratic leaders are aware that the baseball season opens today, and an adjournment will be taken if it is im possible to keep a quorum at the Cap itol. Prior to convening: ot the caucus to day the tariff and the national game of baseball were compared, and It was estimated that the batting average of tne tanir is .iss 'and or the sport at the -ball park .312. Members of, the Ohio delegation be fore going into the caucus this after noon held a caucus in the office of Congressman Sherwood and tried to reach an agreement on the subject of theVool bill. Badly Split. The Democrats of the delegation are badly split, and no concerted plan of action -was mapped out. Several mem bers are -willing to stand by the free raw wool section of the Underwood bill and others want to fight for at least a 15 per cent duty. It is improbable that - the delegation can present a solid front in caucus. Congressman Broussard of Louisiana announced today that he would offer in caucus, when the sugar schedule is reached, an amendment providing for a 25 per cent reduction in the present rates on sugar, but eliminating the Un derwood proviso that sugar shall be free after three years. The Louisiana members have practically decided to take the 25 per cent cut in the new tariff bill, but they -will fight to the end against the slogan for free sugar after three jears. Congressman Broussard oi some I other member from Louisiana or from South Carolina will al&o offer an amend ment for a reduction of only 25 per cent of the duty on rice. In the Underwood t bill, rice suffered a 50 per cent cut. It is not anticipated, however, that ef forts to change these rates will be suc cessful. The caucus today resumed considem tion of the second schidule in the bill, schedule B. The first schedule, re lating to chemicals, was approved with out amendment by the caucus es erday afternoon Vanlla beans were passed oer at the request of Congress- man Raker. Numerous amendments were offered and defeated, and it is apparent tbat Ihrt Underwood bill, despite opposition here and there, will stand the test in the caucus, and will go the House just ay it was drawn. Congressman Underwood, the majority Uader, displayed his strength upon three occasions jesterday, or rather the caucus demonstrated that it is for Un derwood and his program. First, the caucus approved the selections of the Wajs aid Means Committee for the several committees which are to be ap- t pointed to conduct the actual routine j business of the House. t Again Victor. Again, Mr. Underwood was trlumph tnt when he suggested that the sense ot the caucus be tCbted on the propoti- ! tlon that all the committees ought to be named at the beginning of t ic &es- i sion and before the taritt bin i com pleted. Congressman Saunders, of Vir ginia, offered a resolution to appoint all btandii-g committees at this u.iil- and later withdrew it when it became ap parent that the caucus is with the Vajs and Means Committ'-e in its pro glam of .delay. The talk of tin holding of a "club" oer the rank and die sim mered down. Congressman Thompson of Oklahoma who raised a rumpus in caucus Tuesday afternoon, observed that the Wajs and Means Committee had too much work and too much power. He thought a sep arate committee on committers should be named. Mr. Underwood invited the Oklahoman to make a motion to that ef fect in order to ascertain how the cau cus felt. Mr. Thompson decided he wouldn't. "Legislative representatives" some times called "lobbyists" of grrat man ufacturing interests swarmed about the House chamber today, when the Demo crats resumed their tariff caucus Con tinuing their fight for higher duties on many articles, slashed in the Underwood bill, the manufacturers representatives held continual low -toned conferences with Congressmen in the Capitol cor ridors. Resume Conference. With the Underwood bill so far im pervious to assault, t'le Democrats met thl afternoon to resume consideration in secret caucus of the tentative bill, paiaxraph b paragraph. Pittsburgh plate glass manufacturers were represented In force tola at thr House, protesting against the tailft cuts on their rough and polished prod ucts. New Jersej glass and earthen ware manufacturers also were present pleadlne for more tariff protection. The House postoffoce was Inundated with mail to Congressmen, mostly ap peals in connection with tariff duties. Congressmen opposing the sugar tariff proposed bj the House managers are aid to be organizing a letter-writing ampalgn of proteEt among Southern rane growers. They are supporting the amendment to the Underwood bill pro posed by Congressman Broussard of Louisiana. He proposes a reduction of about Ws cents a pound at Dresent. gradually dwindling to .87 of 1 cent 01 J3I5. All efforts to amend the Underwood bill in caucus have failed so far. The nearest approach was that of Mr. Webb 3f North Carol.ua. to put castor oil on the free list. Webb tald castor oil waa tne poor mans greatest medicine. His amendment was defeated, however. Senate Finance Body Has First Meeting to Consider Tariff Bill The Senate Finance Committee held its 3rit meeting today to consider the de tails of the tariff bill The committee met at 11 o'clock in the old rooms of yie Finance Committee In the Capitol ind prolonged its session until about ,7. The chemical schedule was under iiscueslon and various details with re ipect to this schedule were talked over. ?almer Favors Change In Banking Lien Law An amendment extending to national lanks the privilege of loaning money in real estate security, was introduced nto the House today by Congressman V. Mitchell Palmer of Pennsylvania, 'aimer said he would not press the imcndment to the existing national tanking laws until, the tariff was dis posed of, but that any national bank Klslatlon. which was effected, woual ontaln his amendment E Services at Family Residence Followed By Interment in Rock Creek Cemetery.
