THE WASHINGTON TIMES. THURSDAY, APRIT, 17. 1913.
SCHEDULE K TOPIC , Fl DR CAUCUS DEBATE Little Prospect That Rates on Wool Made by Committee Will Be Altered. Following a routine session of the House, the Democrats of that body will resume this afternoon their caucus on the tariff bill. Schedule iv, the stumbling block of the Taft Administration, is the immediate subject for party debate. ', A test, vote on the woolen schedule came late yesterJay and there is now little prospect that the committee rates on manufactures of wool will be changed. Congressman Dies pf Texa, sought to overturn the "Wilson-Underwood provision for free raw wool and f the amendment was lost 190 to 42. Those voting against fre eraw wool were largely representative of the wool pro ducing States of Ohio. Indiana, Mis souri, and West Virginia. Congressman Underwood, the ma jority leader, again found it necessary to make an urgent appeal for the up holding of the rate which had in ef- v feet been dictated by the President. Mr. Underwood explained that in a , tariff bill of about 4.000 Items, the President had taken a decided stand on but two sugar and raw wool. An overthrow of the Wilson free listing of the latter product, Mr. Underwood effectively argued, made It a party Issue In every Congressional district in the country because one branch of the party would thus show Its dis agreement with the titular head. Mr. Montague, of Virginia also made a strong spech defending the Wilson program. The caucus then stood behind the 1 President, and. Incidentally, the Ways , and Means Committee, although the .majority leader said the committee had "favored a 15 per cent duty. The Dies amendment was to put this duty on rw wool. J During the heated debate Congressmen Dies and Alexander challenged the right vof the President to take an active part in the framing of a tariff bill. Mr. Dies declared that the President should veto legislation which did not please him. but that he had no rightto dictate legislation in advance. Mr. Alexander took substantially similar iews. House Republicans To Have Conference Over Tariff Tonight The Republicans of the House will liold their second party "conference" of the new session tonight, and will con tinue the laying of plans to combat the Democratic tariff bill.

At thp conference last week the mi nority of the Ways and Means Commit tee were Instructed to report tonight on the practicability of drafting cotton and wool schedules to be offered as amend ments to the Underwood bill. The mi nority members of the committee were also directed to frame a provision for the creation of a tariff board or com mission, and this provision will be of fered as an amendment to the Demo cratic bill. The conference of Republican to night will determine whether the minor ity will offer substitutes for certain rec tions In the tariff bill or the wiser course would be to oppose the bill as a whole, without drafting a Rcpub!Uan measure which has no chance of pas sage. It is understood that the Republican conference tonight will be open to the press, m accordance with the precedent set by the minority last week. In order to bring In all factions the Republicans call their party council a "conference" instead of a caucus. SEW YORK. April 17. After s-lx years of humiliation and social exile, Jere Knode Cooke, former pastor of St. Goerge's Church at Hempstead, L. I., and Floretta Whaley, the girl for whom he deserted his wife and with whom he has defied the age-old conventions, to day believed they had a chance for legal names for their two small boys. From Hartford, Conn., where the .for mer pastor's wife has been living for several years, came a constanble to And Cooke and his companion In their new Brooklyn home and serve papers notic ing him that his wife had at last re lented and Instituted divorce proceed ings. When Constable Conroy broke the news to Cooke, the unfrocked m'n ister fell on his knees, and, with tears running down his cheeks, expressed his thankfulness In prayer. Conroy told Cooke that Mrs. Cooke ha(i said her decision 'to get a dlvtuoe was due to Increasing sympathy for the position of Cooke's two children. The constable said Mrs. Cooke bad ex pressed the hope that Cooke would marry the Whaley girl. "Of course we will marry as soon as possible." declared Cooke. Floretta Whaley wa? equally Joyful over the news from Hartford. Littleton Denies Cuba Is Near Revolt Cuba is In no danger of revolution, ac cording to Congressman Martin W.
