PRICE TWO CENTS; FAILS IN- CAUCUS ?-;- I Democrats Refuse to Support Free Raw / Wool Program. ALL OBJECTIONS ARE DISPOSED OF By Shrewd Manoeuvring Party Leaders Get Underwood Bill Through, While Not Bind? ing Members to Its Sup? port as Definite Tariff Principle. Washington, Juno 1.?The proposed ; revision of the wool tariff?the Under? wood bill?was 1 unanimously approved by a full Democratic caucus at mid? night, twelve hours after It had been j made public by the Ways and Moans Committee. Its indorsement followed some rapid manoeuvring by the Demo? cratic House leaders, who devised a scheme which effectually disposed of the opposition of the free wool advo? cates. Through d resolution, which leaves the Democratic parly open In tho future to renew Us advocacy-of free - trade In raw wool, but which commits all Dcmocrat? to tho support of the present bill as a revenue meas- I ure, the divergent interests were | brought together in tho caucus short? ly before midnight and an almost unanimous agreement was reached. The tlnal vote on the approval of the Underwood bill was made unani? mous, but the following members were excused lrom a pledge to support the caucus action: Representatives H?ck? er, Colorado; Ashbrook, Francis and b'harpe. Ohio, and Gray, Indiana. Introduced by Kltcblu. The resolution agreed on In a con? ference of the free raw wool advo .cutes was Introduced In the caucus by Representative Kltchln, of North Carolina, who had advocated free raw wool. His resolution declared that tho support of a duty on raw wool should not be construed as an abandonment of the Democratic policy of free wool. The need for a duty, the resolution elated, was due to Kepubllcan extrava? gances, which made necessary large revenues. Speaker Clark took the floor Immediately and supported the reso? lution, which had been framed In tho conference participated In by himself and Representatives Burleson, ol 1 Texas: James, of Kentucky; Fitzgerald. J Of New York, and Kltchln, of North j Carolina. The resolution was then I unanimously adopted by the caucus. j Opening with the statement from Chairman Underwocd, of the Ways and Means Committee, that a 20 per ceiit. duty on raw wool is necessary to In? sure sufficient revenues for the gov? ernment, the fight over the revised wool tariff began In tho caucus. Ad? vocates of free raw wool, backed by ' the open support of William Jennings Bryan, offered amendments putting wool Immediately upon the free list, or proposing a gradual reduction that would abolish tho entire duty within five years. While direct reference to M? Bryan by name was not mado by Chairman Underwood or others who spoke during the day In favor of the 20 per cent, duty, they replied to these frei? wool Democrats by pointing out the absolute necessity for a small duty on raw wool. Gives Complete Text. Chairman Underwood gave the i comnlete text of the proposed re- | vision of the wool tariff to 200 Demo? crats who assembled In the party caucus at noon. It proposes a duty of 20 per cent, on rew wool, a re? duction of more than 50 per cent, from the Payne-Aldrlch law, now In force. i As soon as he had concluded his opening speech, Mr. Harrison, of New York, offered an amendment tha.t would abolish the duty on wool in five years. It proposed a gradual reduc? tion each year for the five-year period. Mr. Harrison declared this was the true Democratic principle of tariff making to put on the free list a raw mator'al so universally used. Mr. Randell, of Texas, followed with an amendment for the immediate abolishment of the entire duty "on raw wool. Mr. Underwood was confident thnt ? the friends of the bill would outnum? ber the free wool advocates four to one. The latter had no hope of fore- . lng a change in the structure of the bill, but proposed to fight against the binding of all Democrats to support the caucus action on the floor of tho House. The new duties, together with the present duties, as figured on an ad vulorem basis by Chairman Underwood, are: Combed wool or tops?Proposed duty, 25' per cent.; existing duty, 105.9 per cent. Yarnn made wholly or In part of ?wool?Proposed duty, 30 per cent.; ex? isting duty, 82.33 per cent.

Ready-mnde clothing and articles of wearing apparel?Proposed duty, 45 per cent.; existing duty, 81.31 per cent. Braids, ribbons, Insertions, laces, em? broideries, nettings and like articles, wholly or in part made of wool?Pro? posed duty, 35 per cent.; existing duty. 87.00 per cent. .'Reduction of ?lff,:;7,000. The various kinds of c&pets are re? duced approximately 50 per cent. The proposed.wool tariff represents a reduc? tion of only $1,350,000 in the revenues of the .; government, according to a statomont presented to the caucus by Chairman Underwood. Imports of wool . for the paat year amounted to $70,744,650, and ? tho Domocrntlc load or's estimate thnt tho reduction In tar? iff will so stimulate Importation that tho first year under tho proposed duties would result In tho Importation of ?130,882,000 -worth of -wool.

"I was first elected to Congress as a Cleveland Democrat, and on a plat? form which advocated tariff for reve? nue.

DEMOCRATS IN DILEMMA Free List Bill Presents Hard Place for Them, to Get Over and Still Support Canadian Pact, but President Be? lieves. He Has Found a Way. Washington. June -Ii"?Tlie crlsiE In I the Senate tight on Canadian recipro? city la expected to be reached when ! tlie Democratic farmers' (reo liat hill j Is offered as an amendment to the bill j carrying the agreement into effect. I That such an amendment will be of- j feicd for the purpose of embarrass- j ing the Democratic supporters of - re- I clproclty seems certain; it is toward j this critical contingency that Pres- j ident Taft iuBt now Is devoting his attention. He is holding dally con? ferences at the White House in an effort to kecD Republican and Demo? cratic Senators alike in lino for tho pact. President Taft is certain sthat the reciprocity bill will pass the Senate by a comfortable majority If It can bo brought to a rlnal voto without amend? ment. He feels that the tost for tho true friends of reciprocity will come In dealing with the proposed amend? ments to be offered from the floor. Mr. Taft recently has had assurances that the bill will bo reported out of the Finance Committee without amendment and without, recommenda? tions. This Is what he greatly de? sires. Would Defeat Ulli. The President feel3 that any amend? ment In the Senate will defeat the bill, and he believes that to be tho j purpose of some Senators who have | proposed amendments. The proposed j Hoot, Lodge and Nelson amendments I have brought the President Into sharp j conflict with these Senators, but he I has not hesitated to express his views regarding them. Fully cognizant of ? the fact that he must depend upon the I almost solid vote of the Demoorats In ] the Senate to carry the reciprocity bill ; through. President Taft has been en- j deaVorlng to devise a moans to help them oiit nf the dilemma, that will be presented when they arc csltcd to vote for or against the fr?>a "MaC bill as a rider to the reciprocity measure. Some Democratic Senators have told the President frankly that they, would vote against the free list amendment if they could be assured that the "stand pat" Republicans would not stifle In committee the free list bill as it came from the House, and thus deprive the Southern Democratic Sen? ators of the opportunity in the open .Senate properly to record their votes on the measure. President Taft fully appreciates the position in which the Senate Democrats find themselves, but he thinks he has found a solution of the problem. He has suggested that a motion by the Democrats to discharge the Finance Committee from consider? ation of the fr?1? list bill and to put It upon its passage would serve the pur? pose of the Democrats In making their attitude a perfectly clear one, and l:o has further expressed confidence Ii, the fairness of the American peoplo to recognize the purpose of those who would attempt the free list mothod of defeating reciprocity. The plan as outlined has been broad? ly discussed among Democratic Sena? tors, and It is said that they believe with other frineds of reciprocity that it is an acceptable solution of the dif? ficulty. I .In all of his talks with Senators dur? ing the past few days President Taft has endeavored to impress the fact that in negotiating the pact with Canada tho United States offeerd to put meats, flour, agricultural implements and shoes on the free list. Canada would not make like concessions. The White House View. According to the White House view, the Root umondment to the paper and pulp schedule does not actually vlolato the agreement, but repeals the House amendment and puts the paper provis? ion again In conditional form. The House, It Is said, would not adopt the Root amendment or any other amcn> nient carried through from a technical standpoint. With the agreement once in the open Senate, President Taft has said that Its fate would depned not so much on the number of votes pledged to the measure Itself as upon the number that can be mustered to put through amendments that would prevent its passage. President Taft fool3 sure of twenty-two Republican votes for the reciprocity bill In the shape that it passed the House. He also feels sure (Continued on Second Page.)

' "Washington, June 1.?Senator Dori mcr. of Illinois, faces another Investi? gation at the hands of his colleagues. The Inquiry will be conducted by a subcommittee of the Committee on Privileges and Elections, composed 6t four Republicans and four Democrats, four of whom voted for the convic? tion and four for the acquittal of tho Senator last session. Tho method sclocted Is regarded as the latest thing In jury trials. It took aoven hours' debate to agree upon the system and it was finally adopted this evonlng by a vote of 48 to 20, being substituted for the plan urged by Senator Da Follette of turn? ing the case over to five Senators who were not members when the caso was voted upon before and therefore were supposed to be unbiased. Gets ".nuntie of Aidrlch." i Before the vote was taken Senator Brlstow, who favored tho Da Follette plan, accused Senator DUlingham, chairman of the Elections Committee, of having capitulated In the interests of a Democratic scheme of turning tho Investigation, over to a subcommittee. This charso was baaed on the fact' that tho author of the resolution adopt? ed was Senator Martin, the Democratic leader. Mr. Brlstow also claimed that the Old Guard Republicans had formed an alliance with the Democrats, and . had placed the "mantle ot ? Aldrlch" upon the shoulders of Martin. That the Committee on Privileges and Elections had shirked Its duty in tho former Investigation was charged un? reservedly by tho supportors of the Da Follette resolution. Senator Lea, ? of Tennessee, said he would no more turn the case over to the Elections Committee for another^ trial than he would submit to a second I operation for appendicitis by a surgeon who had failed on the first operation to locate the appendix. Senator Konyon, of Iowa, recently assistant to the Attorney-General, In? timated that the great trusts had busied themselves with the election of Senators so aa to Influence the selec? tion of United States district attorneys whose friendship might be useful in the caso of prosecutions. The defense of the Martin resolution was conducted by Senators DUlingham, Martin, Bacon, Stone and other Sena? tors from both the Republican and Democratic side of tho chamber. Moot of the Insurgent Republican Senators voted against substituting the Martin resolution. .V" Mention of Subcommittee. Tho resolution adopted merely pro? vides that the examination shall ba conducted by the Elections Cornmitteo and mak?s no mention of a subcommit? tee. It was in connection with the un? derstanding on the part of many Sena? tors that a bl-partlsan and a bl-Lori mer committee was to be named that brought out most of the criticism. The discussion of the alleged agree? ment an to the delegation of the ln? qulry to a subcommittee was precipi? tated by Mr. Brlstow. He said he had been advised that the Investigation was not to be made by tho committee as a whole, but by a subcommittee, and that tho leaders of the Republican and 1 the Democratic parties had reported an understanding In regard to it. j In 1 discussing what he termed tho capitulation of Senator DUlingham, he said ho accepted this act as a tempor? ary transference of leadership to tho Democratic sldo. It was with a feeling of regret, he said, that he saw the mantle of Aldrlch fall upon the should? ers of a Democrat, but he added that he found consolation In the fact that the transfer had become necessary. "Mr. flalllngor had not been able to don the mantle," said Mr. Brlstow, "and it had not been found to fit Mr. Penrose. For some strange reason It had not heon tendered to Mr. Lodge, and not until the wolves had scattered, the sheop had there been and success In finding a leader. But now that a coali? tion has been formed, the man has been found and the Senate knows whence Its signals are to come." The real question at Issue, accord? ing to Mr. La Follette, was whether tho lumber and beef trusts could buy a seat in the Senato. "If the Senate does Us duty." ho said, "it will estab? lish theso facts, for tho proof exists. And the truth should be known. Sena? torial seats should not bo on tho bar? gain counter for the great Interests Bp buy." Criticizes Agrermenf. Mr. La Follette also criticized the al? leged agreement between conservative Republicans and Democrats for the selection of a subcommittee. The ac? curacy of tho statement that such an agreement had been made was ques? tioned by Mr. Bacon, and finally Mr. Davis said that had been the under? standing In the Democratic caucus, but that It had been reported in the abr senco of Mr. Bacon. Denial that thore was a formal' agreement between Democrats and Re? publicans was made by Mr. Dllllngharo, but Mr. Martin said there had been an understanding that the full cornmitteo would be too cumbersome, and that tho plan for tho oommlttoe of eight had been approved In the caucus. He said that it would be necessary for the' Senato to, confirm the nominations of the members of the- subcommittee. "Then why not elect mombirra at once by adopting tho L?i Follette rcso-' lution?" asked Mr- Cummins. Mr. Martin replied that ho thought It desirable to place tho responsibility upon the standing Committee on Blao-'
