120 STATE STREET.
Washington, Dec. 7. Representa
tive Dingley, chairman of the ways
and means committee, has returned
from his visit to Major McKinley, at
Canton.
"I went to Canton," said he, "to
discuss revenue matters with t)ic
president-elact. My visit had noth
ing to do with cabinet-making. Mr.
McKinley Is, of course, interested In
obtaining the views of Republican
members of congress on the situation,
but I do not feel at liborty to discuss
the details of 6uch conversation as
passed between us. . ..
'I do not think anything has been
definitely decided upon, but existing
circumstances and the prevailing
sentiment seems now topolntstrongly
to an extra session. The necessity of
additional revenue is imperative, and
If a revenue bill Is not passed at this
scssiou.an extra session must be called
I am still of the opinion that I ex
pressed some time ago, that the so
called Dingley bill will not passtbe
senate."
"In the eyent it develops early In
the session that the Dingley bill will
not be acted upon by the senate, it Is
probable or possible the house will
send some other revenue measure con
taining provisions for an additional
tax on beer, or an Import tax on tea
and coffee to the senate?" was asked.
"No,"replled Dingley, emphatically,
"the senate must acton the measure
in possession or not at all. We will
not send them another bill.
Mr. Dingley said that in advance
of a formal mooting of the ways and
means committee, he-did not care to
speak of the probability of the com"
mittee beginning work on a new tariff
bill at tills session, but as the Repub
lican complexion of the conirUttce
would be practically unchanged In the
next congress, he said there appeared
to be no reason why tlic worK or
framing a bill 'Should not be facllll-
tated by work at this session.
He did not care to discuss tho
Cuban situation orexpressan opinion
as to the prevailing cabinet gossip.
He gave It as his belief that little
would he accomplished in tne way or
legislation at this session, beyond the
passage of the appropriation Dili.
Decided Upon by McKinley.
Washington, Dec. 7. Several new
arrivals of friends and confidants of
McKinley, direct from Canton, bring
the positive announcement that a
call for a special session or tno oiii
coneress. to be convenea a lew aays
after the 4th of March, has been de
cided upon. It is stated that tins
decision has been definitely reached
bv McKinley since his consultation
with Dingley, chairman or tne com
mittee on ways and means, who is
authorized to annouuee the fact at
tho proper time.
Senator Thurston one or me iiuen.
arrivals from Canton, expressed
In positive terras his conviction mat.
an extra session will be called. He
said: . .
"I have recently seen McKinley ana
am convinced that an extra session
will bo called about the 15th of March.
I cannot quote any one, but I do not
consider there Is any doubt on the
point."
"Shall wo have an extra-session re
gardlessof the result of senatorlol
electlos this winter?" was ssked
"Yes, the complexion of the senate
will not be allowed to influence the de
cision at all. The republican admin
istration has been elected under a
pledge to the people to reform tho
tariff and it is due to this country to
proceed about that business at the
earliest possible moment and either
keep Its pledge or make It manifest
that it Is impossible to do so. I think
.,, crnre a tariff which could
be put into effect by the beginning of
the next fiscal yeaa."
rrin.rainn said he did not consider
the passage of the Dingley bill at the
short session propaoie.

Monroe, but' lost It through fore
closure proceedings. Oflatovears ho
often threatened tb shoot the parties
connected with the foreclosure and
to end his own life, but otherwise ho

but was BUlllclent to start prices on

of July was tho chief feature of tho
market and was looked on as a movo
on tho part of tho clovator Interest
to depress tho nearby dealers. Brad
