Washington, August 14.?The tariff revisionists made considerable prog? ress In Congress to-day. The House, by a vote of 206 to 90. without a Democrat breaking the party align? ment, adopted the conference report on the wool tariff revision bill and rushed It over to the Senate, whore it was hung up on the calendar for p.sssigo probably to-morrow. For this measure, which imposes a flat ad va? lorem duty of 29 per cent, on all raw wools with corresponding reduced rates on woolen manufactures, tho other two tariff measures will be side? tracked, so that wool may have the right of way to the Whlt% House for the expected veto. On the veto depends tho further program of tho House Democrats and the Senate Dem. OcratS and Progressive Republicans. Including the formulation of plans for e speedy adjournment.

Mr. Underwood said tho free list bill might reach the House to-morrow for a vote, although It Is not expected before Wednesday. The free list bill which admits a va? riety of product* duty free. Including potton bagging, shoes, agricultural Im? plements, flour, lumber, etc.. was put In such shape that It could he con? sidered In the Senate to-morrow as a conference report If consideration tt the wool >)111 should bo delayed. The Conferees disagreed as to two vital Amendments,?but these, according to plans of the lenders, will he speedily adjusted by the two Houses without necessity of returning the hill to con? ference. The wool bill was pushed through the House after a debate of forty min? utes. Democratic Leader Underwood checkmating the Republicans who re? fused to accept a debate limit of less than two hours. Durlnir tne Senate debate on the cotton bill. Mr. Cummins, of Iowa, ?peaking on the amendment which he proposed to off?r. reducing the duties on Iron and steel, declared that th? war cry of the next campaign would lie "Are we to have protection for the I :,::'if.icturer and free trade for the farmer" He declared the Republican party would have to answer that ques? tion to the country. r,rrit l-'lgbt Over Platform.

August 14.?Thirty-five hundred suffragettes will arise this morning, breakfast with tea and toast, polish their own boots and snap a large padlock, self-denial brand upon their respective pocketbooks. The cause of this procedure Is the be? ginning of "self-denial week" In New York suffragist circles?Its object, the collection of "denial money" for the furtherance of the "cause." This week of collective penance has been long and carefully planned, and the preconcerted snap of the suffra cist pocketbook will have n real and well-defined effect upon that class of trade purveying to the wants of wo? men. It means that during this week women of the suffragist pursuaslon have pledged themselves to do their own laundry work, abstain from the absorption of ice-cream soda, walk in? stead of using cars. ear. no candy, stay In the city during the week-end, clean their own shoes and gloves, eschew then ti es and moving pictures, avoid the manicurist, eat twenty-cent meals und turn the money saved Into tho coffers of the cause to be used in the many energetic campaigns on schedule. American suffragettes have long been In search of methods and means with which to push their campaign for equal rights. They have considered every campaign known to the desciples of equal suffrage throughout the world, from the battle-axe methods of England to the docile remonstrance of .lapnn. and have come to the con? clusion that each and every one Is unsutted to the American field. It therefore behooved them to evolve something new, and here It Is?a week of self-denial with the cash saved do? nated toward future campaigns. Said campaigns to be conducted with the methodical precision of a great po? litical fight In order to put the new idea into effect. New York, because of its cen? tral location and the wealth of Its suffragists, was chosen ns the first city In which to try the new scheme. The enthusiasm with which the "de? nial" proclamation was received by the devotees of suffrage, at once Insured Its popularity. The city was split up into districts, leaders were appointed for tho divisions made, and each lead? er wss given authority to call meet? ings among her sister suffrage en? thusiasts, to receive pledges and to distribute propaganda. The success of this hus'ness-llke way of doing things was at once evi? dent. Thirty-five hundred names were enrolled, nil of them accompanied by Pledges covering nbstlnenca from all but the bare necessities of life during the sacred seven days.
