Mr. Ryan, .who baa been criticised for recent alleged declarations to the effect that ne inttwled to call in prac tically all stite lucncys and deposit them In two Chicago banks, when talk ed to personally piea-'fted an entirely different administrative plan. He as serts it will be his plan to keep state money in both Chicago and down-state banks. The only specification will be when the committee took up schedule B earth, earthen ware and k'uss. The schedule reopen ed allegations of a so-called glass trust. It has been represented to the committee that the American produc tion of plate glass is about 50,000,000 square feet annually by only 12 manu facturers. Advocates of tariff reduc tion contend the duty could be cut in half without injuring the American manufacturer. Leader Underwood Indicated today the house ways and means committee would stand for retaining a tariff ot 55 and 60 per cent on pottery. He announced tho testimony had satisfied the committee of the highly competi tive conditions of the industry in Europe. The chemical schedule of th revised tariff legislation to be enacted by the coming extra session of congress was closed yesterday so far as public hear ings are concerned. The indications are that the demo cratic majority of the house commit tee on ways and means will sustain its chemical schedule as embodied In the separate bill that passed both bouses, though vetoed. It Is possible that there may be some modification of the rates on spices, which several members of the commiv tee favor, but this is uncertain. EXPECT XO CHANGES. Democratic and republican members alike are expecting the schedule to emerge from committee in almost the identical form in which it -was put up to the lust session of congress and the president. The only indication of a possible change In the schedule during tho long testimony was while W. J. Gibson, a New York lawyer, was arguing for a 50 per cent duty on spices. "Wouldn't It tend to cut off importa tions if we put a. higher duty on spices?" asked Chairman Underwood. "No," replied the witness, who add ed that spices, running from 5 to IS cents a pound, were not expensive. Mr. Gibson wanted to put cod liver oil on the free list because of its med ical value to rickety and decrepit child ren. He classed spices as luxuries. The chemical schedule covers pro ducts all the way' from acid to elnc. It did not evoke as strong an opposi tion as is expected by the committee to be aimed at several of the other schedules in the series of hearings that will stretch along to Jan. 31, after which the committee will wrestle with the -whole tariff question, with a view to readiness for action at the coming extra session. ! ader of the democratic side The democratic smate caucus con vened this morning.
