OPINIONS VARY GREATLY Protests Against Free Meats and Assurances of Favor in Congressmen's Mail. President Wilson has no intention of retreating from the position he has taken with respect to tariff legisla tion. This became known at the White House today. Some of Mr. Wilson's callers talked to him about tariff, told him the pending bill was popular and advised him to stick to his guns. The sum and substance of the re ply of the President was that he in tended to stick. Believes in Measure. He believes in the tariff measure as it stands, or approximately as it stands, and he Intends to do what he can to keep it from being materially altered. More than this, the President has fully made up his mind what to do if the Senate should materially increase the rates in the pending bill. He will go over the head of Congress, in speeches or otherwise, to the people. He has no hesitation in saying so to callers. It has been his intention from the beginning to do this. One of the sources of outcry against 1 the tariff bill has been the farmers and stockmen. They fear that tree meats will lower the price of cattle and live stock. Protests are coming in, but on the other hand, the president is get ting assurances from the West that most of the people favor free meats. Informal Talk. Senator Simmons, chairman of the Finance Committee, haa returned from North Carolina, where he went-,to,J.at-tend the wedding of his daughter. He conferred Informally today with various members of the Finance Committee, but no meeting was held. Protests against the tariff bill are fairly deluging the Senate. Wool men. among others, are vigorously protest ing against free wool. Senators Cham berlain and Lane, of Oregon, are get ting protests In large numbers by wire. In spite of these protests, the general feeling is that the bill will be Jammed through with little change, since few of the Senate Democrats are willing to stand out against the Administration or the Democratic caucus, which will endeavor to tie up the Democratic Sen ators to support the tariff measure. Police in Search For Missing Boys The police today were asked to search for two missing thirteen-year-old boys. They are Bryan Clarkson, of 615 Six teenth street southeast, and William Eusau, of 1124 Congress street north east.

PERKINS TELLS rumjuis Progressives Are Expected to Make Showing in Election of Congressmen. TARIFF PLANS DIFFERENT Financier Not Here on Mission of Politics, But to Attend Carnegie Meeting. That he is highly encouraged over the prospects for the Progressive party, and looks for it to make a Btrong showing in the next Congres sional elections, was made plain to day by George W. Perkins, of New York, who is here today to attend the Carnegie Peace Endowment meeting. Mr. Perkins talked of the Progres sive party outlook and plans, and of the tariff bill. He is not criticising the Democratic tariff plans or what the Administration is doing with re spect to tariff. Plans Not Alike. At the same time he points out that the methods of the Democrats with re spect to revision are basically different from those the Progressive party advo cates. "I have coma here," said Mr. Per kins, "not on a political mission, but solely to attend the Carnegie Peace En downment meeting today. "The executive committee of the Pro gressive party held a meeting In New York yesterday. The meting received reports of progress from all over tho country, was advised how the work of organization was proceeding and the like. The reports made were in every way encouraging. Remarkable Strength. "One of the indications of tho strength of the Progressive party is to be seen in the recent Massachusetts election. Those figures seem to me remarkable for a new party, less than a year old. All over the country, there is activity In the way of organization "The meeting yesterday definitely de- ciaea to put a progressive party candi date Into the field In every district In the next Congressional elections. It was murther decided to prosecute tho wont or organization vigorously." Mr. Perkins spoke of the financial plans worked out yesterday and othur details. He emphasized the fact th.it every attempt Is going to be made to have the Bull Moose faction make gains In the House In the next Congress. In contrast with the hurried organization of the last campaign. It will be the pur pose to have a perfect one n the coming Congressional campaign. Mr. Perkins was askeil for his views on the tariff bill. He said he did not propose to appear In the light of a critic of what the Admlnstratlon was doing. Tariff Up To Democrats. "The revision of the tariff is up to the Democrats," he said. "It Is their Inning. For the sake of the country. I hope they will be able to accomplish a successful revision -jf the schedules. It Is Important to the country that this be done. "The method of revision which the Democrats are employing is not. of course, the one advocated bv the Pro gressive party. We believe "in the es tablishment of a strone tariff commis sion, and a revision ba"ed on scientific data obtained b such a commission It Is a different procedure from the one the Democratic party is adopting. "One of the chief causes of dissatis faction with the Pajne-Aldrich measure was the manner In which the legislation was enacted. I believe that the method advocated by the Progressive party Is the better one, but at the same time I have no purpose to attack the Demo cratic bill."

What probably will be the most important list of nominations sent to the Senate thus far during the Wil son Administration, is scheduled to go to the Capitol early next week, and will be placed in the hands of the Senators. From various Cabinet members it was learned today that such a list now is being whipped Into shape by the President, following conferences with members of his official family. McAdoo Risks Prestige. Secretary of tho Treasury McAdoo has risked his entire prestige on the ap pointment of Frank Lyon Polk as col lector of the port of New York. This step was taken In the face of opposi tion from Senator O'Gorman. The New York Senator, on behalf of Tammany, has suggested to the Presi dent half a dozen names for this po sition. One name suggested by Senator O'Gorman to the President, and which is being considered seriouslv, la that of Thomas W. Churchill, president of the board of education. In New York. The coltectorshlp -for the port of New York, the fight between Tammany and anti-Tammany Democrats of the Umpire State, and the probable outcome of the struggle, constituted the domi nant topic at the Cabinet meeting. CoUectorship Important. Anti-alien land laws postmaster ships, and the like were given but little thought as compared with the collectorcblp. Secretary of Agriculture Houston declared that no reference was made to the ousting of Willis L. Moore as head of the Weather Bureau and that the subject of his successor was not considered. He did not deny that Charles W. Dabney. of Cincinnati University, was the leading candidate for the position at the present time. Tammany and Antis Agree on Ralph Butts for Poughkeepsie Postmaster As the result of a conference of up State anti-Tammany men with Senator O'Gorman In the latter's office here, the two great Democratic factions In New York are today reported to have agreed for the first time upon a nomi nation. Ralph Putts, of Poughkeepsie. is to be recommended for postmaster of that city. His name has met with the Indorsement f Franklin D. Roosevelt and J. K. Sague, anti-Tammany candidate for collector of the port of New York. It is understood that Senator O'Gorman has concurred. State Committeeman Perkins of Duchess county was the emissary who arranged the matter. Sague's friends consider that the incident bet ters Sague's chance of landing the collectorship.

McCLEARY. E E . ' i -r . - Treasury Officials May. Chal lenge Right of Dr. Friedmann to Ask Fee for Remedy. The right of Dr. F. F. Friedmann to charge a fee for the injection of his "turtle serum" for tuberculosis may be challenged by the Treasury Department through the Public Health Service. Any contemplated action In the premises will not be discussed by Public Health Ser vice officials or others in the depart ment The Public Health Law prohibits the shipment of the serum of tubercle bacilli Interstate, pending its approval by the Public Health Service. Whether this prohibition extends to its carriage interstate by the doctor is a question of law, for the legal advisers of the department to settle, it Is said. The question arose because of the reports from Providence that Dr. Fried mann was charging a few for the ad ministration of his remedy there. The issue was not draw as long as Dr. Fried mann confined himself to free clinics purely for purposes of demonstration. It is believed in official quarters that the public use of the serum for a fee puts a different aspect on the case. The future course will be directed by Secretary McAdoo. who Is Interested In developments In the Friedmann cure. The Public Health Service. It was learned today, has no Jurisdiction over Dr Frledmann's action In Providence. His professional conduct in that city is governed by the State and municipal laws. Friedman Likely To Fail on License Is View at Capitol Dr. Frledcrich Franz Friedmann prob ably will not be granted a license to practice medicine In the District bv spe cial act of Congress At least, there Is small probability of this being done In the near future. This Is the view taken about the Sen ate since the question was raised vester day by the introduction of the Hughes bill. The opposlt'on to such a mark of special favor to Friedmann until the efficaev of his cure is demonstrated Is great. It proceeds from some of the strongest members of th Senate, like Senators Gallinger. Smoot. Penrose. Woiks. and others, and it Is clear that nothing can be done without protracted discussion. This makes it unllkelj that the bill can he put through at the special ses sion Manv Senators doubt the wisdom of anv action that would give the stamp of officlil approval to the so-called cure of Friedmann. Senator Hughes of New Jersev has asked Senator Smith, chairman of the Senate District Committee, to have the committee take early action.
