ALL ALONG LINE
Latest Move of Opponents of
Free Raw Material.
Willing to Agree to Reduction on
Wool, Hides, Etc., but Propose to
Plght for Substantial Reductions on
Bombarded on All Sides by Con
flicting Interests on the Tariff.
Washington, July 24.—"We are go-
to have a bill and soon," said
Senator Elkins of West Virginia after
a brief call at the White House.
All of the congressional callers at
the White House left the impression
that the president would win sufficient
concessions in his fight for downward
revision, especially on raw materials,
as to make it sure that a bill will be
devised which wllL warrant his signa
But the anti-free raw material sen
ators and representatives are still on
the firing line, devoting their energies
now to a flank movement against the
schedule on manufactured and fin
ished products. If raw materials are
to be reduced almost to the extent of
putting them on the free list the
ators do not see why the same prin
eiple should not apply to finished
products. Facing defeat on those
items in which their constituents are
most concerned the anti-free raw ma
terial folk are anxious to show that
the other fellows had to suffer much
the same fate.
Elkinc Opposes Discrimination.
"I stand on the Republican plat
form and I am with the president,"
declared Senator Wlkins, "and this ap
plies to his pronouncement of Friday,
too." "So am I," interjected Senator
McCumber tf North Dakota, "but,"
they added in choru3, "we want to see
the revision called for in the platform
carried out without discrimination and
all along the Hue. Why should such
products as hides and oil be made
free and the rates on cotton and
woolen goods kept up so high you
can't reach them on a stepladder?"
"I have studied the bill pretty care
fully," raid Een itor licCumber, "and
I find stib^tautihl reductions every
where until we get. to the cotton and

"in discussing this matter with the
president I went so far as to say that
we were willing to have a slight com
mensurate reduction made on raw
wool if we could get a reduction in
the woolen goods schedule."
The president has taken cognizance
of the situation as to cotton and wool
en goods and the senators who saw
bim reported that he had told them
to go ahead and see what could be
done looking to a reduction and he
added that he would do the same.
Report Expected Monday Night.
The president was told that a con
ference report might be expected by
Monday night. Congressional callers
brought news of the activity of Sen
ator Crane, who is using his abilities
as "the great conciliator of the sen
ate" to bring about a sentiment in
favor of the president's programme.
Some New England representatives
who have been fighting tooth and nail
for free hides have been stirred up by
the crossfire of the hide men, who
have demanded that the duties on
manufactured leather goods be de
creased accordingly. Representative
Gardner of Massachusetts hurried to
the White House to tell the president
that a reduction of duty on the class
of cheap shoes made in his district
would simply be ruinous to the indus
try. He declared that even the exist
ing rate—15 per cent—was far too
low. The trade In other districts, he
added, where a higher grade of men's
ehoes are made, might well afford a
reduction—he did not ksow as to that
—but he was sure as to his home dis

on all sides by all the conflicting In

Washington, July 24.—The indlca

favor of the following rates on the
articles which have been the cause
of so much recent controversy:
Coal, 45 cents per ton iron ore, 25
cents hides, 7 per cent ad valorem
lumber, $1.25 per thousand petroleum,
free. There will be more opposition
to the hide reduction than to any
other of these adjustments.

Efforts to Avoid Conflict Be
