Nov. 30.—Democrats will I endeavor to force the republlcaus tu consider tariff legislation at the persi 'ut session of congress. ' At the democratic house caucus-today Itepie- sentiUive Hays of Virginia will Intro duce a resolution e.\|>resslng it as the sensf of the minority that imanlmoiis consent be given for no legislation e\co|it that relating to the currency until the committee on ways and ulean.^ has reported a tariff bill. An exception will be juade of currency legislation lifcause'llit; democrats are agret'd that it will be unpatriotic to place any stumbling I locks in the way of the solution of the currency question. Itep- reseulative _ Hays will also propose that five or six democrats be designated by the minority leader, Mr. Williams, to stand on guard and object to rushing any legislation no matter what .shape it may take until there is tariff action. The object is to emphasize the tariff situation before the countrj-. • .«ttt^»»«lJHI It is known that Speaker Cannon will endeavor to so fill the vacancies on the ways and means committee so that the standpatters will be In al)solute command of the situation. The speaker Is unwilling to have any tariff discussions i)recipitated. much less legislation projiosed.

The dem ocrats will endeavor to show the ho!lowness of republican promises in tiie districts where there is strong tariff revision sentiment.
