Sidetracked to Give It
Precedence.
WILL PASS SENATE TO-DAY
I
Then It fjocs to White House
to Receive Taft's
Veto.
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.
Democratic Leader Underwood, of i
the House, In expressing the opinion 1
to-day that final adjournment will not
come before next week, said that he !
does not expect Congress to stay af- I
ter tho pending bills have been dls- j
posed of "unless tho Senate determines
to stay and act on tho cotton bill "
Debated Without Action.
That bill, which makes an average
cut of 21 per cent. In cotton duties,
was debnted without action In the
Renate to-day. It already has passed
the House. 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.

New York. 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. Estimations of
tho benefits to be secured from this
abstlnonco run Into tho thousands.
In discussing the plan, its objects
and advantages. Mrs. Margaret C. Ald
rlch, hesd of the New York suffra?
gettes In the absence of Mrs. Carrie
Chapman Oat, chairman of the Woman
Suffrage party, said:
"We are undertaking these seven

a lot of money to push the cause?

equal rights. The campaign for equal
suffrage must be run on the same plan
as that of any other great political
campaign.
"But even more Important. In a way,
I than the amount of money to be col

THOUSANDS OF VOTES
IN PONY RACE MONDAY
No One Contestant Cast an Unusually Large
Number, but Three Hundred of Them Make
a Big Total?Interest Increases Daily.
A week of the pony contest has passed,
and means Just that much less
time in which to get busy. Every day j
holds possibilities, and the contestants'
who do not let them pass without ac?
complishing something are the ones
who will he on top at the close of the
contest.
Yesterday was the busiest day that!
the contest has so far seen. Ballots
and subscriptions poured in all day
Jong. More votes were cast than In
the entire first week of the contest, i
Subscriptions were received from Nowl
York City. California, Brazil and,
Turkey, with requests that they be,
credited to various contestants. Near- I
ly every reader of The Times-Disptitch j
Is interested In the pony contest and
has a favorite In the race.
Children from every corner of the1
State of Virginia and several frojji
North Carolina have entered the. rafa,
i and more are entering every day. Oc- f
crvionally the question Is asked as to
whether or not entries can still be 5
made. Boys and girls under eighteen
years of age are eligible to enter at
any time, and nil that Is r.eeessnry to!
enter the oontust is to clip the nomi- ]
nation blank, which counts l.OOO votes.
A number of contestants have not
understood the nomination blank, and
have sent In several nominations and
expected credit for them. A contestant
can be nominated once only, and .ill
nornlnat'ons after the first arc de?
stroyed.
Contestants are fast realizing the
secret to a large vote Is securing
subscriptions. Any child with an
ounce of energy can ijoon havo sev?
eral thousand votes to his credit by
going after them. The subscriber gjn
bis full money's worth In The Times
Mlspatch, and the contestant gets the
votes. Any contestants who are not
already supplied with receipt hooks
should Immediately call at or write
to this office for one, and then get
busy.
There Is not a single contestant In
the entire list who cannot, with .1 few
days' work on subscriptions, take tho
lead, if he real'y wants to and Is
willing to go after things with the
winning spirit. Sit down and ilgure
It out for yourselves, you conte.itunts.,
who have so far not done much. Fig?
ure how many subscriptions it will
take to put you In the load. You ?111
he surprised to And out how few It
will take, and you will be still morA
surprlsod to find out how easy It will
be to secure that needed number, when
you really make up your rnlnd to get
them.
^ Nothing worth having wojs eve? had
without some effort, nor are the pony
outlits and othe/ valuable prizes go?
ing to parties who are afraid to ex?
ert themselves u little. There is go?
ing to be an exciting race from now
on, and it rests entirely with you con?
testants as to who is going to win out
if you are willing to let some ons
else do whut you might have done
and then sit by ami see them carry off
the honors, It la up to you. And If
you want to be among the victorious
ones, yon should make up your mind
right now, to go atter it with every,
ounce, of energy that you are capable
of putting forth.
The pony outfits are ready to be
