Washington, May 24.?Deadlock, hard and fast, between the House and Senate is a likelihood of midsummer; in the opinion of leading Senators and Representatives of both parties. The present shaping of legislation seems The House and Senate may lock to them to point that way. horns on every important legislative proposition, not even excepting Cana? dian reciprocity. Wide differences of opinion and divergence of political and economic policies lead to this con? clusion. The suspicion Is well grounded In the minds of many Senators and Rep? resentatives that there is a growing disposition In the Senate to tinker with the Canadian reciprocity bill and add amendments until that measure BhalJ be rendered practically lneft'ec tlve. Such action would be highly objec? tionable to the House. That body passed the Canadian reciprocity bill j in good faith. At that time It was thought that without doubt the Sen- j ate would accept It and that Canadian reciprocity would be made operative, with a great deal of the credit inuring to the Democratic party. The old guard of the Republican . party In the Senate is apparently In? tent upon killing reciprocity If pos- I siblfc. More ominous still is the fact; that some Republicans who would have favored reciprocity if it had come to a vote last session are showing in? dications of a change of heart. If the Senate should amend the bill vitally the deadlock would probably come over tho report of the conference committee. The House, It Is thought at this time, would refuse to agree to a conference report, evert If the con? ferees presented one, which would scotch reciprocity. A ? deadlock over the Arizona state? hood bill is regarded as not unlikely. As the bill passed the House the prin? ciple of the Tecall of.fthe Judiciary Is to he In effect submitted to the voters ' of Arizona, and If approved by them Is to become part of the Constitution and Arizona admitted as a State. Thus bv indirection the recall is made pos? sible. The Republican majority in the Sen? ate any many of the Democrats of that body are unalterably opposed to any possibility of the recall being embod? ied In the Constitution of Arizona. They are In harmony with the amendment offered In the House yes? terday by Mr. Mann, providing for the immediate admission of Arizona upon the striking out of the recall provision from her Constitution. In the House | thirty-three Eiemocrats voted with Mr. Mann, and the proportion of Demo? crats of .the.same, mind will probably be even greater In the Senate. Many Senators do not see how It will bp pos? sible to avoid a deadlock between the two houses over this proposition. The Free Mat Dill. When it comes to tariff revision It Is absolutely certain. Republican leaders! say, that there will either be a dead? lock or the House will yield. The Re? publican loaders do not entertain the ] remotest Idea of acting upon thej "farmers' free list bill." which the | House has passed and sent over to the j Senate. That measure proposes such a radloa": change of the tariff and such I a violent assault upon the tariff plat-; form of the last Republican national convention that the leaders will refuse I to acquiesce. The proposed revision of the wool' schedule, which the House Democrats are to take up in earnest in their cau? cus of June 5, hasn't the ghost of a show of receiving the .attention of the Senate at the preesnt session. Republican Senators are noj dis? mayed over the prospect of the country holding the Senate responsible for non action. They re gar dlt as less than the alternative evil of the Republicans of the Senate assisting In making good a Democratic program for the political benefit of tho Democratic party. l-'nreonst: Virginia nnd North Caro? lina?(Jenernlly fulr; not nitielt change In temperature Thursday nnd Frldayt llghl. vurlnble wind?.

In fact, there Is a common complaint among the diplomat!*.' representatives of most of the powers at Washington of l*ck of such an exact understanding of the ob? jects of the State. Deportment and the terms of the arrangement that has been proposed to France and Great Britain. So far as can ba learned, no copy of the draft of the arbitra? tion treaty has boon furnished to any other governments than those of France and Great Urltaln. It Is true that any of the diplomatic rep? resentatives of the powers In Washington might have had a copy of the agreement for the meressklng. but they have not been official^- so Informed with one exception, and that Is Germany. The German government concluded that the subject was not urgent as soon as It learned that, contrary to some early im? pressions, the proposed treaty did not carry It with any kind of an alliance between ihe United .States and Great Itrltain or France. Hence. Its disposition is to await the de? velopment of the negotiations already In progress, for It ha? become apparent that the original draft of a convention may have | to be materially modified during the nego? tiations. And even If these are successful.; there is no telling what the United Plates Senate may do to Ihi proposed treaty. It will be quite time enough, according to the i German view, to determine whether or not Germany shall make application for a simi? lar treaty when the Franco-British-Ameri? can conventions take Unal shape. No Ken.onn for Delay. With a pretty clear understanding that the Japanese government thoroughly approves of the principle of a general arbitration agree- ; ment. the State Department can scarcely j have reason to delay overtures, unless It ! reaches the conclusion that these had better await the outcome of the negotiations now In progress with France and Great Rrttaln, and the subsequent action of the Senate. If precedent Is followed, S^-retary Knox prob, ably will verbally take np the subject with Baron l.'chlda, the resident Japanese ambas? sador, as the department has decided to con? duct all of these negotiations In Washington. knife: duci, to thr dkatii.
