The fight on the tariff, although It will
be red hot, will not be unnecessarily
prolonged, the republican senatorial
caucus having decided that no bush
whacking lk to bo resorted to for the
purpose of delaying the vote. It is,
unless present indications are at fault,
to be a short, sharp and decisive light

they get the modification or not.
