As result when the session com menced this morning the actual strug gle over the Important differences be tween the bouse and the senate open ed to earnest Thus tar all ot these questions Involving raw materials audi as Iron ors and other metals, wool, cotton, hides, and numerous ota- er articles, which have been the sub jects of heated disputes, have been put over after very brief discussions held for the purpose ot determining the temper of the representatives of the two branches ot congress.

Some of the conferees have adopted the plan Of refusing to accept these arguments, basing their ' declination upon the ground that the bill has been considered In both branches of con gress, and that it is now the duty of the conference committee ' to har monize the differences without outside Influence of any kind. Few ot the conferees predict that a report can be made before a week from Saturday, but some go as far as to forecast August 1 br later tor the adjournment ot ttie extra session. A representative ot the Associated Press Interrogated one of the con ferees as to the progress that has been made. A list of practically all ot the amended pragraphs ot public Interest was submitted to him. It covered nearly 100 subjects and .not one of them bad been settled definite ly, It was learned.
