Coach Rice's bronzed squad from
New York were easily the heroes of
the day. Many had picked hlB varsity

Friends of the bill on the Democratic

Object to Definite Date.
Insurgents objected to any definite
date for the reciprocity vote, and the
Finance Committee was extricated
from the embarrassing position of
having the other votes determined by
an objection from Senator Snioot. Sev?
eral Democrats and Insurgents would
hate welcomed the fixing of the other
two dates, so that the tariff bills could
be forced up lo President Taft ahead
of the reciprocity bill, and the latter
held back as a means of forcing his
signature to the others.
The Ponrose request will be renewed
from time to time, and whenever con?
ditions seem favorable. Ultimately the
friends of reciprocity may consent :o
change the order, allowing the vo:e
on the tariff bills to come first, but
they will not do so at present, ner
