Minority Leader Mann de- ; ?daring that only bills on tne calendar j co ild be considered.

Mr. Mann promptly appealed from the j ruling and demanded a roll call The chair's position was sustained. 'Jtl to j 10. and the repassage of the steel bill followed. The defection of the Republican progressives angered former Speaker Cannon In an attack on the pro? posal to repeat the wool bill v eto per? formance, he spoke of the defection of yesterday In bitter terms. "They may call thenv/elves Repub? licans," he thundered, his clenched fists upralEtd. "but I am not one of them.*' 'Thank God," retortfd one of the! Insurgente, amid laughtc-i and ap- 1 plause from the Democratic tide. i Majority Leader Underwood made a spirited attack upon the motives that prompted President Taft to veto the steel bill, which, he said, had been | passed by a Republican Senate With hut two slight amendments. He re- j ferrcd to the President's explanation ; that changes had been made In the schedule ss it was presented to him ! last year, and thjit Congress had | vouchsafed no explanation for those changes. Toft's Pliable Exhibition. "A statement of that kind in a great public document is not only j lamentable, but it is pitiable." Said "/. Underwood. "He vetoes a public tue;:?- I ure because in the lapse of a year's time the Congress of the United States had determined to change the rates In that bill ani have n?>t communicated tn him our reasons for the change of rates in the two bills, forsooth It must receive his veto. "Any mar. of intelligence or any man Of conscience, any man having respei l for himself would not sond to the Con? gress of the United States that state? ment as a reason for di fell ting the will of the American people as es pressed by their representatives in the Congress oi the United states." Mr. Underwood explained that the bill Imposed a duty of approximately twenty-two per cent on steel products that ten per cent would cover the difference in the cost of labor at home and abroad. This statement was COmbattcd by Representative Payne, of New York, former .speaker Cannon and Oth/. r Republican leader-. Mr. Cannon charged the Democrats with "playing politics" in pressing the vote and aroused Mr. Underwood'u Ire by de? claring that the majority leader would bu the. most disappointed man of all If the bill should become a law. Mr. Underwood resented having his -in scrity questioned and rotorted sharply. Ab an added chapter to the tariff program on the floor, Mr. Underwood Just before adjournment announced to the House the failure of the House conferees to reach any agreement with the Senate on the sugar tariff revision measure The House voted to send the bill back to conference with in? structions that the House conferees refuse to agree to the Senate amend? ments.

It Is expected that the Sen? ate will agree to the. one battleship plan, ending the deadlock over the naval bill.
