WASHINGTON. D. ('.. March 2.1.— Democrats expressed the view to-night , that the extra session of Congress I would be a prolonged affair. This was on the assumption that President Wll-1 son would recommend to Congress | consideration of the currency ques tion. as well as perhaps oth« r matters * of pressing importance insofar as1 their discussion would not Interfere I with the right of way of tariff re | vision. The President has Indicated within the past day or two that he will '-.rge other needed legislation when the tariff is out of the way. Consideration of currency and other questions might carry the seraion well , into the autumn. Democratic Leader I'nderwood is known to believe that the tariff would be disposed of In the House by May 11. and by both houses by July 1. | Speaker Clark to-night said that if . only the tariff were taken up Con | gross could adjourn the middle of Au j gust, while other leaders predicted I that tariff revision would be r»»dy for the presidential approval by August 1st. | "If the President shcxild send in a • message recommending action on oth I>*r important matters other than the' II tariff," said the speaker, "1 have no sort of doubt that Congress would take up these matters. \ good many j j other members believe that the extra I sessloln should be confined to the tar iff. If the three special sessions called to revise the tariff. In which l have1 served, the work was confined largely . to the tariff, barring such routine mat-! tors as naturally come up." The Income Tax. ■ Ilf imk piumriii w iui Miiiru t ur | House ways and means committee ma-j (Jority is now wrestling i* the income! tax. Three points especially are Im . ing considered, the amount of Income exemptions, the rate of tax, including question of graduation or straight tax and collection. The Wilson act of 1KP3 the last Democratic tariff, made' $4,000 as the minimum taxable In come. which some of the revisionists argued to-night was really equal to $5,000 or $<?,0t)0 under present living cost conditions. The committee majority Is working with a "thimmy" percentage rrtt". and the final result will hinge on these cal-: rulatlons and one the report yet to be made on the probable revenue from the fourteen dutiable schedules. The question of collection source—wheth er from the employer Instead of di ! rectly from the salaried man—Is being carefully studied out. FOUR CREMATED IN MYSTERIOUS FIRE (3U8SDORO v .f.

Despite the warning Issue last week by tho newly appointed public prose cutor that violations of the excise laws would be* prosecuted, many sa loon and cafe proprietors "Took a chance" and did a lively business. In the forenoon when the parade was at Its height numerous cafes were closed and the visitors seeking liquid re freshments were obliged t" resort to side doors and club entrances, loiter' in the clay, however, bars that wore lightly closed in the* morning hours, were opened wide and did a rushing business without Interference.

WILSON SORRY THAT M’COMBS DECLINED POST President Gives His Views of the Calibre of Man Needed for Forelfln Posts. WASHINGTON. March *3—Presi dent Wilson to-night reluctantly ab sented to the expressed determination of Chairman McCombs, of the nation al Democratic committee, to decline the proffered French ambassadorship. In a statement expressing his high re gard for Mr. McCombs, the President declared that the diplomatic service of the United States Is unnecessarily hampered by the fact that only men who havo time and means to leave their liiiriness find themselves able to serve the government abroad. The President's statement follows: "I am very sorry, indeed, that Mr. McCombs cannot accept the appoint ment to France. I was particularly anxious that he should. My admira tion for his abilities, my knowledge of his singular capacity tor gittsping complex situations, my confidence in his tact and resourcefulnes;'. as well as my affection for him. and the inti mate relations that of course exist between us. combine to m >ke my dls ajpolntment very great in-lt-rd. But I. of course, appreciato the force of tfce reasons ne ,;ives. He would ha/e accepted at an nnreasonsblj sacrifice and 1 could not further press the offer upon him. "It Is a great pity that the country has to ask sur *i sacrifices of those who are Invited to serve it, abroad— a service which every year becomes more exacting and more important. The sacrifice of time, of means and of opportunity at home is very serious for any but men of large means and leisure, and the diplomatic service Is unnecessarily hampered.'• Important Porta to Be Filled. Secretary t)f state Bryan is due back In Washington from his western trip on Wednesday. The President Is expected to be ready to take up w-ith him the appointment of men to at least five diplomatic posts which Washington observers regard as cV the most pressing Importance.

Marrh 23.—If Pres ••lent Wilson wants to slop being hero for a while tomorrow and go out and roll eggs with the thousands of Washington children on the White House lawn, ho won't have to sit up tonight coloring eggs, and he can easily find the youthful chaperon necessary to get a mere grown per son by the Watchful policemen. It all came about because the President derided today to avoid the fashion able churches of Washington and mo toreii out beyond the rapltnl to the Eastern Presbyterian church. In a pew near that occupied by the Presi dent and Mrs. Wilson and their three daughters was Margaret Gundaker, »'• years old. who brought to church a gloriously colored Easter egg. which would have made almost any famous rainbow jealous. Margaret watched the President while he took his seat Just before the service she whispered to her mother and then shyly rearhed mrr the presidential pew and handed Miss Eleanor Wilson a gaily decorated paper napkin with t!.e precious egg Inside Miss Elea nor received It with a smile and handed It to the President, who looked at the name written In a chllds hand on the nankin, glanced around to where Mlsa Gundaker sat nnd bowed his thanks, with a smile that marie her htu«h with happiness and confusion Tho President gave no Intimation today as to where he expected to worship, and his appearance at the Eastern Presbyterian church was un expected He missed the Connecticut avenue Easter parade, but avoided also the crowds about the better known ehttrche*.
