CLARK ASKED FOR TIME.
By Associated Pees
' Washington, Feb. 25.-Buch is the
probability that an extra session of
congress will be necessary to ret ac
tion f on . the Canadian reciprocity
measure that President Taft fixed April
4, next, as the date such session may
be called. The date was selected af
ter a consultation with Representative
Clark, the next speaker, and Represen
tative Underwood, , the next chairman
of the committee on ways and means,,
which will, nave - charge of the reci
procity bill In the house. .
Taft intended to call the extra ses
sion ' earlier, but Clark : and Under
wood told him they would lie to have
a month after adjournment to map out
Democratic plans for the next session.
: . The situation on , reciprocity today
in the senate was unchanged, and the
leaders see, no hope of bringing the
McCall bill to a vote . at this session.
A telegram from Aldrich, nj Jekyl
Island, Ga., asking that a pair be ar
ranged for him In favor of the McCall
bill If a vote came, created surprise,
as many standpatters believed Aldrlch
was opposed to the measure. - -
