WILL END ENGLAND'S PROTEST [I ! | President Will Probably Deliver ! Message Before House and Senate By Associated Press j Washington, D. C., Feb. 6. —Repeal of the toll exemptions provision of the Panama Canal law was before Con gress to-day nM an administration , measure backed by President Wilson. | Although a repeal of the section | which would give free passage to I American coastwise ships through the ! great waterway involves a practical I repudiation of one of the planks of I the Democratic platform adopted by i the Baltimore convention which nom* i inated President Wilson, administra tion leaders were sure of prompt ac tion In the House and began lining up I their forces in the Senate, where the I hardest fight will come. Some Demo crats there are avowedly in opposition to the President's wish and have an- I nounced their intention for fighting his proposal. A message to Congress, probably de livered in person by the President, is expected as soon as conferences de velop the administration's courso of action. i> jjeal of the free passage section will dispose of (treat Britain's protest that it is in violation of the i llay-Pauncefote treaty.

Republicans Confident This Year's Campaign Will Be a Winner Philadelphia, Feb. 6.—Political de velopments of the last day or two j harve been so rapid-fire in their na ture that leaders of all parties are ob serving a diplomatic reticence in dis cussing the situation. McCormlck's unwise attack upon his Democratic competitor Ryan at the outset of the primary contest has embittered Demo crats all over the State and advices received hero indicate tremendous op position to the slated "reorganization" candidate. Congressman Palmer is said to have declared more than a month ago that he had no thought of being a candidate for Governor and it is said j here by those in his confidence that he has no hope of a successful issue of the gubernatorial contest. He maneuvered for the United States sen atorship because it was more prom ising and would invite support of tho Wilson administration. Attempts to conceal the schism in the Fllnn party have failed and an open break between the honest Roose velt men and those who are con.lur- | hig with his name cannot be avoided much longer. At Republican State headquarters here there is quiet confidence in the outcome of the campaign, the bitter controversies and clashing of personal ambitions among the inanagers of the other two parties giving increased im petus to the "back to the party" movement in this Republican State.
