BASEBALL VIES WITH
CAUCUS FPU FAVOR
Democrats Fear That Quorum
Will Dwindle Today When
Two Teams Start.
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
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
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
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-
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
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
"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,

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

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

All efforts to amend the Underwood
bill in caucus have failed so far. The
nearest approach was that of Mr. Webb

the free list. Webb tald castor oil waa

His amendment was defeated, however.

3rit meeting today to consider the de
tails of the tariff bill The committee
met at 11 o'clock in the old rooms of

iiscueslon and various details with re
ipect to this schedule were talked over.
