AN
General View of Taft's Dec
laration on Tarifl
CONSERVATIVES AROUSED
Have Little to Say for Publication, bat
in Confidence Many Talked Freely
and Predicted That the President's
Stand Meant Defeat for the Bill.
Standpatters Will Now Become In­
surgents and Outcome Is in Doubt.
Washington, July 19.—President
Taft's emphatic declaration that he
regarded the Republican platform as
meaning, and the sentiment of th'
whole people as demanding, "revision
downward" eclipsed In Interest all
minor and specific details of the tariff
struggle in all circles here.
The statement issued after a dele
gation of congressmen had appeale i
to the president for the maintenance
of protection'upon raw materials, par
ticularly iron ore, wool, hides, oil and
lumber, puriorted to be an outline re
port of the discussion which took
place during the visit of the delega
tlon and especially of what the presi
dent said to the visitors but the very
fact that such a statement was issued
at all and, in particular, the emphatic
conclusion of the remarks of the pres
ident thus reiterated made it clear to
all who studied the pronouncement
that the president intended it virtually
as an ultimatum.
Many read into the statement a
barely concealed thrent on the part
of the president that If the bill
reached Mm in a form which he re
garded as unfaithful to the promises
of his party and disobedient to the
sentiment of the mass of the people
he would veto it.
Talk Freely In Confidence.
Few of the prominent members of
either house of congress would dis
cuss the statement for publication and
most of the utterances Intended for
quotation were of a perfunctory char
acter but In confidence many talked
freely and some of the conservative"
•ery bitterly some went so far as to
say that the president's stand meant
nothing less than the defeat of the
hill altogether. One man said: "Now
the standpatters will become the in
surgents the lines will all have to be
reformed and nobody can forecast the
outcome."
Those less excitable Inclined to the
view that the president had simply
made a long foreseen move essential
to the "logic of the game" and that it
would mean the speedy dissolution of
the opposition to downward revision
and the termination of the long fight
with the bill at last in the president's
hands substantially as he has all
along desired and Intended it should
be.
The conferees of the two houses are
adjusting their differences with a rea
sonable degree of rapidity. They have
been in session for about a week and
have made quite as much progress
the more conservative of them had
expocti they would.
Shifts Scene of Controverejw
The fact that the president
taken so positive a stand has had the
effect of shifting the controversy from
the two branches of congress between
themselves to the president and con
gress
as a wholu From this time for
ward it looks as if the (juration would
be, not what the house will concede to
jfe.

can concede and still make sure of the
acceptance of the conference report
by the two houses of congress. It is
a tjood natured flpht. but it Is a fight.
The great difficulty of meeting the
president's demands, If they are as
Cxtreme in the direction of free raw
material as is feared by those inter
ested, will be encountered in the sen
ate, where the raw material states
have greater proportionate representa
tion and where then1 is no cloture
rule. In the hous", as a whole, the
.tendency is toward the president's
position, but some of the house con
fcrocs lean toward the senatorial
view.
MINERS INTEND TO FIGHT

Wages in Pennsylvania.
Pittsburg, Kan., July 19.—Thomas
L. I.ewis, national president of the
United Mine Workers of America, has

'The operators there have given

"We will resist it to the bitter end.

gasoline in a tailor Fhop, which wns

CONFEREES DISPOSE
OF WOOL SCHEDULE

Three Instance!
"•asMngton, July t#.—The confer
ees on the tariff bill have agreed to
a reduction of 5 per cent In the Ding
ley rate on women's and children's
dress goods made of cotton warp.
