DEMOCRATS SPLIT ON TARIFF Ranks of Bourbons Are Torn Asunder by Bitter Fight Over Revision WILD SCRAMBLE FOR PIE IN CONGRESS WIDENS GAP Champ Clark Favors Immediate and Genera! Cut in the Payne Duties OPPONENTS ASSERT MOVE WOULD BE PARTY SUICIDE IRA E. BENNETT £ Special Diipaich to The Call] WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 10.— With the democratic majority in the house, now estimated at 59 end likely to reech €0, the expected in surgent movement within the demo cratic ranks has already. t>een. launched. In a wild scramble for preferment in committee appointments and the strug gle to decide leadership and such im portant questions of policy as the tariff and a change in the rules of the house, the democrats have already begun to fight like cat? !n a barrel. Shall the democrat party, reading into the elec tion returns, call for tariff revision and proceed to the making of a new tariff bill, or Fteer clear of a course that seems always to lead to political dis aster? That is the question that is rending the ranks of the democrats \u25a0with their great landslide still rever berating throughout the country. Clark Favors Revision Word has been received by democrats Sn this city that Champ Clark has ex pressed himself definitely in favor of a. general revision of the 'tariff as soon as the next congress convenes. In this T> sition he will be supported by a great many of his alfies, but kis announce ment, nevertheless, has brought forth a storm of disapproval from many of the leading democrats. A general re i ' i?ion of tariff, the democrats say, Is the one big break for which the coun try is waiting, the great mistake that will turn the tide back to the republic cans in time to elect a republican presi- The general discussion among the democrats caused by the tariff bugaboo that Is looming up. clearly reveals the view of the party leaders towards 1912. New York democrats who believed that it would be a misfortune for their party to capture the house because blunders might be made to Impair the chances of winning the great presi dential stakes, now assert that all pos sible precautions should be taken to guard against missteps. Champ Clark, the. principal candidate for the speaker ship, is a. staunch Bryan man, and the insurgent democrats say that he should , xnake it plain that he will not be guided by. the advice of the discarded On all sides the name of Woodrow TTllson is being- heralded as the new leader of the democratic party, and it is being urged that he be consulted as to the future course of the party. Gov ernor Harmon of Ohio, it is being as serted, has never shown the qualities for leadership that have been shown by Woodrow Wilson. Senators and representatives who are in Washing //tea declare that Harmon has never yr.-.aSe himself clear on big national Is sues such as the tariff and corpora tions, while Doctor Wilson has never dodged a single issue. May Kill Cannon Rules Some of -the strongest men on the democratic side are in favor of strip ping the speaker of his power, even though that speaker should be a demo crat. James Hay of Virginia, Robert L. Henry of Texas and Swagar Shirley of Kentucky, none of whom would be averse to becoming a compromise can didate for the speakershlp should the opposition to Clark's free trade pro clivities increase -in strength, ' are In favor of taking all but his parliament ary power away from the speaker. That is the k!nd cf a platform on which any one of them would run. While Clark h£.s announced that he takes the result of the election to mean the doom ' of Cannon rules, he has made no 'an nouncement as to whether he Is in favor of the proposition to have a committee selected geographically to name the men who shall serve on all the Im portant committees of the house. Should he come out In favor of this plan It would be a surprise to those who blame - him for suppressing a resolution call ing for such a change at the last ses sion of congress. Without authority to appoint the committees the speaker's power would be gone. Men who are In line by right of seniority for the important chairmanships will be loath to upset the whole order of things by \ voting for a committee on committees. | jjuch a committee, selected geographlc- Jelly. tronld pay little attention to the ' nrecedence.. p \u0084 « \u25a0 . s.

The chil dren will be given all the soup and bread and butter they want. The girl pupils willbe taught to set the tables and to serve the food.

"We have tried giving these children bread and milk, but they do not like milk, and the experiment failed. They will get the best soup that can be made and there is no doubt but that they will' like it and it will be as nourishing as any food that could be given them."
