It was sald to day that Prealdent Taft had been rtl rectly appealed to by Speaker Cannon and .Leaders Payne and Dalzell yeste. day when they were more than an liour and a half wlth the CUIef Execu tive at the Whlte House. The tactics of the "Insurgents" are worrying the leaders to even a great;r degree than they are wllllng to admit, and la ls to bring these rgcalcitrant* into line that the President's aid has been sought. Fenr ScnHte Won't Chnngc. Fears that the Senate wlll not make changes in the blll whlch they deslre, and thelr dct-rttjlnatlon to satisfy their constltuents that they are look lng after thelr lntereats in the House, are the maln reasons certaln Repub llcan Representatlves are holdlng out for a rulo whlch wlll permit them to aecompltsh these objecta. Up to this time the "stand-patters" have agreed to permit the discuaslon for amendments of the paragraphs on hides and lumber. It probably wlll be necessary. however, for them to grant tlie samo permission wlth a regard to the reciproclty clause on bituminous coal and tho paragraph which places iron ore on the free 11st. The Ways and Means Commlttee to day further considered the amendments which it wlll offer to the blll. The Tariff Commission Committeo met sev erai members of the commlttee to dla cuss the proposition which they advo cate. James J.

Mr. Hill ls understood to be in favor of rcpeallng the duty j on lumber. but would not so express ? liimself for publication.

As on yesterday, the early , morning attendance of members was ; *mall, and there was an. apparent in | difference exhibited to tho dlscusslon : Quotiug from a speech by President jTaft that tho primary purpose of a j tariff was that more revenuo may be provlded for the government, Mr. , Brantley, of Georgia, declared this to be true Democratic doctrlne. Tho j Payne blll. however, he sald, owlng to the seclusion and secrecy under which !it was framed, carrled on its face the stamp of Insincerity so far as lts pur ipose to provide revenue for the gov jernment was concerned. The primary ?purpose of the blll, he contended. Was Inot revenuo, but tho maintenance of ?the true Rcpubllcan theory of pro I te'ctlon. Mr. Brantley laid the preaent deficlt !at the door of what he charged was Republlcan extravagance. In tho opinlon of Mr. Brantley, the Dlngley tariff on sawed lumber of $2 a thousand, was not prohlbitory, but a revenue rate, and he satd if gjven tho opportunlty he would vote tp SbaVe It restorod. He attaeked the cotton sehe dule on tho ground that It was solely ln the Interest of the New England manufacturer. Seorea Paper. Trust.
