May 2S (Special Tele gramsFriends of reciprocity in the sen ate are now concentrating their forces upon an attempt to secure an early test on the Canadian agreement. During the last three or four days they have made a careful investigation for the purpose of seeing precisely what it is that stands In the ways of Ireachlng some satisfactory conclusion. TBey have requested that the finance committee shall take action for the purpose of reporting the agreement not later than Monday next, and they have urged that as soon as the committee has acted tl-s, senate shall begin meeting at 10 o'clock as heretofore, continuing Its ses sions throughout the day and meeting every day until It gets through the work- There seems to be a disposition on the part of the finance committee to act. If not next Monday, then shortly thereafter, but a de cided degree' of restivenesa has been ex hibited with respect to the Idea of meeting early in the day and sticking to the work every day. The opponents of the treaty are working for a recess. They urge that there is really j no reason whatever why congress should act before the Canadians vote. On the strength of this it Is recommended that the first of September or of October would be a very good date to reassemble after taking a recess June 15. or at some time during the two weeks following that date. Of course. In Canada the same argument was used that congress was not likely to act on reciprocity for a good while and that therefore it would answer every pur pose if an adjournment was taken until late in the summer. Opposes Adjonraaaent. Mr. Vnderwood. chairman of the ways and means committee, however, early stated he would not consent to an adjourn ment until he was informed that the sen ate would vote prior to such adjournment at least on reciprocity, and possibly also on the free list measures. . - i -- Now( tills croup ha been Joined by the administration men in the senate. - who have become convinced that the recess scheme Is merely a plan to bring about delay with a view to defeating the bill. Senator Crane of Massachusetts has ex plicitly said that the recess proposed, will not be assented to until a vote has been had on reciprocity. If the senate were ab solutely unanimous in demanding a recess, it might be hard for the democrats tn the lower chamber to hold their own, but the acceptance of the same point of view in a strong form by the Crane group and also In a modified form by a group of demo cratic senators, seems to indicate that the scheme cannot succeed unless conditions change very much from their present status. The hopeful plan of defeating reciprocity by delay having been put practically out of the question, the senatorial leaders have been thrown back upon the plan of de feating the idea by means of amendments. The problem of defeating the bill has therefore assumed a distinctly new form and is now simply a question of whether any process of bargaining and of agree ment for mutual support of amendments designed to change the terms of the meas ure can gain enough adherents to Introduce the necessary modifications. It Is generally admitted there Is only one way In which such a combination can succeed. That would be through a process of connivance on the part of men w ho are not practically interested In any of the amendments, but who want to see the whole thing fail and who think they can Justify themselves tn voting aKalnst it The real question Is how fas- these men will go in permitting the amendments now proposed in order to get a colorable protest for hostile votes.

LARIMER'S BANK BARRED OUT Clearing House Refuses to Admit it Into Association. OTHER ARRANGEMENTS ARE MADE Flaanrtal roarer SolTeat, bat Its Head Is Declared to Be an Un tried Factor In the Bond, las Business. CHICAGO. May 8. (Special Telegram.) Inside facts concerning a meeting of the committee of the Chicago Clearing House association Saturday afternoon, at which it was decided to refuse to admit Senator William Lorlmer's La Salle Street National bank to the clearing, house, were revealed today by one of the members of the com mittee. In this way It became known for the first time that Senator Lorlmer's an nouncement that hereafter he Intended to take active charge of the management of the bank was partly responsible for the refusal of the clear) H ouse to admit the La Salle street tnaUtmipa. - At the same time It was announced by C. B. Munday, vice president of the Lo ri mer Institution, that the failure of the clearing house to admit the bank would have no effect. He declared that arrange ments had been made by the bank to clear through another institution and that a definite announcement concerning it would be made after a meeting of the Lorlmer bank's officials Monday afternoon. Here is the story of the meeting of the clearing bouse committee, aa told by one of its members, a leading officer In one of the largest banks of Chicago: Told by a Banker. There seems to be a great deal of mis apprehension concerning what was actu ally done. How far this goes Is shown by the fact that a mutual friend of mine and Senator Lorlmer asked me the other day what was going to be done with the application of the La Salle Street National bank. "The facts are that no application was filed, but the question of the advisability of admitting the bank was Informally dis cussed. "It is generally understood that before a bank should be admitted to the clearing house it should live up to certain re quirements. The first of these require ments is that Its directors should be sub stantial and trustworthy men. This qual ification was possessed by the Lorlmer bank. The second one Is that It shall have done business for some time and demonstrated the ability of the men wlio have charge of it. Now recently Senator Lorlmer announced that he Intended to take entire charge of the management of his bank. "Since its organization Senator Lorlmer has been in Washington. He Is therefore an untried factor In the banking business. "In Justice to the La Salle street bank, I want to make it perfectly plain that there Is not the slightest doubt In the minds of the members of the committee concerning Its solvency."
