It is generally conceded thatit will pass the house, but will not command the heavy Republican vote given to Ca nadian reciprocity. The bill which proposes putting agricultural implements, cotton bag ging, leather, boots and shoes, harness, meat, lumber, flour and many other articles on the free list came before the house in th last few moments be fore adjournment yesterday, and was I scheduled to be. taken up as soon as the house convened today. Mr. Underwood in .explaining the measure said it was only the beginning of a Democratic revision of the tariff. "We propose to revise the tariff, sched ule by schedule," tie said, "that is, in oTir opinion, the only proper way to handle the tariff question." Final vote will not be reached be fore the end of this week, and house headers are in doubt whether it will come before the following week, k Chairman Underwood of the ways and means committee expressed tha opinion that the debate will last four or five days. Republican leaders ex pect it will be longer. . TheDemocrats are confident of pass Jng,thearmers' free list, as it is known, by a large majoritj'.

The' Republican committee on com mittees of the senate will meet today in the hope of completing a full list of committee ccnslgnments for a cau cus on "Wednesday. The "seven Republi cans of the regular Republicans will present a schedule, while the four pro gressive Republicans will present the names of members of their group for one-fourth of the Republican commit tee places. -The regulars have undertaken to give the progressives about 25 percent of the assignments, but they have "failed to do this in Hie committee on finance. After a long struggle they have decided that the regulars should rejain control of this most important committee, and will therefore place only the name of senator La,Follette of the progressive wing on this com mittee. The progressives have on tende.d for two representatives and they will present the names of senators La Follette and Cummins. It had been expected that senator KTenyon, the new senator from Iowa, Says He Wants No Office People Do Not Elect Him To Discusses Peace. HEDGES ON THE DIAZ QUESTION Earl Harding, staff correspondent of the New York World, sent the follow ing dispatch to that paper last night. Francisco I. Madero has not sought nor will he accept the vice presidency of Mexico as one of 'the conditions of peace. Peace negotiations are continu ing on the basis indicated by the World correspondent last night, and both in surrectos Ind the unofficial represen tatives of the Mexican government ex pressed tonight entire satisfaction with their progress. Diaz will be left in of fice: the revolutionists will not sur render their arms; cabinet and state of fices must be divided between govern mental and insurrecto forces in such a way as to insure to the revolutionary party not only a fair share in the gov ernment but protection from reprisal for having taken up arms. In his provisional palace of mud by the Rio Grande the Insurrecto chief made clear this outline of the peace program to the World correspondent in a long Interview today. The Terms He Wanis. "We will accept such "terms," said Madero, "as will guarantee to us the triumph of the principles demanded by BATTLE IS F OUGHT v QRCA SONOBA Nogales, Ariz., April 25.

The committee meets again tomorrow, and probably will repdrt at a meeting after tomqrrow whether that be Thursday or later is not known. The Democrats complained bitterly at the reports New Mexico Republican pa pers are printing, to the effect that the Democrats are opposing statehood. This caused chairman Flood to remark that neither publicly nor in private had he heard any New Mexican, Re publican or Democrat, say anything' that could be considered as opposing the constitution. Democrats say they want a more easily amended constitution if possi ble; otherwise statehood with this con stitution or any kind of a constitution rather than no statehood. The house today took up the free list bill, which will occupy most of the. week. The reapportionment bill, then state hood, is tlie house program. Exsenator Henry Blair of New Hampshire, who headed the figh against the constitution last session, showed up today and asked for a 10 minutes speech, but did not get to talk today. LI morning booted and spurred j a men naa cianjtea in ana out through the low portal of the brick floored adobe which hovers near the International boundary as if it feared the rebel horde chat was camped in the canyon beyond the volcanic ridge of the foothills. The tranquility of a monotonous ex istence had suddenly been broken and the squat adobe, looking for the world like a lump of brown sugar against the bleak, brown hills, became the cen ter around which the crowds, Insurrec tos, civilians, Mexicans and Americans moved in an irregular circumference, as if the boundary monument marked some sacred shrine of 'the virgin. Within the low ceillnged sala. which was the living room, off that historic house of two rooms and a leanto, the brick floor and the thick walls gave the air of coolness that was refreshing af tre.the abnormally hot sun outside. A print of the virgin hung over the bed and was balanced by a cheap mirror which gave back a wavering reflection. In the- corner a clock ticked irregular ly and a wicker basket hung from a rafter of the thached and beamed ceil ing. The Man Neath the Clock. Directly under the clock sat a dap per little man in riding boots, English cloth riding suit, a soft shirt, slightly soiled and a badly tied fourinhand tie His beard was untrimmed and his hair, thin on top, combed far to one side to hide the encroaching baldness. A flat nose is offset hy a forehead that is broad but not high, intelligent without being brilliant A safety pin has been looped through the buttonhole of the riding coat as if -for some future exi gency of the field. He Is a nervous lit tle man, but it Is the restlessness of an overplus of nervous energy rather than nerves. This is Francisco Madero, pro visional president and the man in the spotlight of fickle public favor. The Babe In the Crib. In the opposite corner, hurled deep In tiny metal crib sleeps a babe, an insurrectito" of but 22 days. The clanking of the horsemen's spurs on the hrlck floor does not disturb the small sleeper. A canopy of tarlatan keeps thef buzzing flies away. He is but 22 days old is this little son of the south land. There are no wrinkles in that dark skinned baby face. What are the cares of stat that burden the little man sitting in the opposite corner of the room? What of the future of plex Ico, the little citizen's Mexico of to morrow?
