REDUCE COST OF LIVING NEXT The 'Demeeratle Caucus Is to Deter- mine the Course of Legislation But Reciprocity Will Not ' ' ; be Amended. ' Washlnaton. April . The latter part of next week the Democrats will spring their first tariff revision bill la the bouse. It will be a reduction downward of the wool schedule There will be cuts of from 25 to 60 per cent In the Payne Aldrlch tariff law. Following this will come other re visions of the tariff In the Interest-ot the plsla people In that an effort Is to be made to reduce the cost of living. There It to be a caucus of the Dem ocratic members next Monday to de termine the legislative course to be pursued, Mr. Taft has urged Chair man Underwood to bring the MoCall reciprocity bill out from committee at the earliest possible date. Mr. Un derwood, In an -Interview with the president told him that the Demo cratic program of legislation would be determined In caucus, It it oeiievea that Democratic program contem plates the Introduction ot the wool schedule and a general bill reducing the tariffs on the necessities of lite by the ways and means committee. To do this there must be a Joint bill Involving the agricultural schedule the chemical schedule and the tteel schedule, ' , , - Mr. Underwood laid: "The Democrats will try so (ar as the tariff la concerned to reduce the prices of the necessities of life. 1 have not figured the various stock market quotations as to the trust con trol of food prices. As chairman of my committee I cannot say what trusts or what concerns control the varfous food products which are the basic food supplies ot tbs public. "This 1 can say: "The flrat re visions of the tariff will be an effort on the part of the Democrats to re duce the price ot those things that are necessary to the table of the working man." At the caucus of the Democrats on the legislative program It will be that the Canadian reciprocity bill snail pass the bouse without a rider. The radical members of the ways and means committee have been placated by Mr. Underwood's promise that he will force the wool schedule through the house ahead of any, other tariff legislation. . Speaker Clark said: "Nearly every revision to be made by the Democrats will lie it Is hoped, for reduction of the high cost of liv ing. A certain number, of schedules will be passed by the house and put up to the senate. The Democratic party Is not playing politics. It sim ply believes thst It knows what the American people want and the repre sentatives are united In a demand that the people shall have what they want. This Is a new era In politic. , " "We believe the" Democratic party Is leading this movement. It Is con cealing nothing and It will not jockey with President Taft on bis request for Canadian reciprocity. That Is to be passed as the president sent It to the house. "Ws have revised the rules and former Speaker Cannon said that he believed that under the new rules the house could enact legislation with greater facility than under the old Reed rules." .
