Disagree On Wool Tariff. . Washington , May 2. —The house committee on ways and means next week will bedin working on the revi sion of the wool schedule. On this bill the democratic majority in the house is divided, but the committee division is not so wide as last week. It is the policy of Speaker Clark, Majority Leader Underwood and other democratic leaders not to sub mit a bill placing raw wool on the free list. Many democrats want raw wool on the free list; others believe the sched ule should not be so radically revised at this time. That a majority of the democrats on the ways and means committee favored free raw wool until a few days ago, there is no doubt, but a majority of the democrats could not swing such a bill even in committee nor could a majority of the demo crats in the honse effect its passage.
