OREGONIAJf NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. April i. The progressive Dmo
crats of the Senate, having demon
strated that they absolutely dominate
their party ' caucus, ara now desirous
thst the country shall know they domi
nate the Senate and shape Its policies.
IJke their progressive brethren who
recently cut loose from the Republl
csn party, the progressive Democrats
are good advertisers and are becoming
expert at the publicity business.
Recent conferences between Presi
dent Wilson and Senator Kern, one of
the progressive Democratic leaders in
the Senate, were followed by the an
nouncement that the President la de
sirous that the progressives shall con
trol the committees of the Senate and
especially dominate those committees
whose chairmen are not of the pro
gressive faction. It was furthermore
announced that the progressive Demo
crats will take charge of these com
mittees and wrest from the chairmen
the power ordinarily reposing In them,
rbalrasaa'a Power Exaggerated.
This latter announcement Is pure
buncombe. The chairman of a com
mittee of the Senate has no power be
yond that of any member of the com
mittee, save the power to call his com
mittee together, and when It comes to
the transaction of business the chair
man Is no more Influential than the
last member of the minority: he has
only one vote, and his chairmanship
gives him no prerogatives not enjoyed
by every other member of hia commit
tee. When the Democratic membership of
Senate committees was agreed to by the
steering committee and later approved
by the Democratic caucus the progress
ives took good care to see that they
held the balance of power on all im
portant committees, and when they
hold this balance of power It makes no
difference whether the chairmen be
progressives or conservatives. It Is
this power resulting from a majority
of the membership that gives the pro
gressives control and there Is nothing
to the report that the progressives are
going to rob the chairmen of their
power. Being In the majority, the pro
gressives will merely go ahead to re
port measures acceptable to the pro
gressive members on the committees
and that Is all there Is about It.
nraeoratle Breaea aeenaa Probable.
There Is Just one possibility that this
programme may be upset in some in
stances. If. as sometimes seems prob
able, an open breach develops between
tne two factions of the Democratic
party In tha Senate, the conservative
clement may tire of the domineering
course of the progressive element and
form an alliance with the Republican
minority and such a combination as this
would wrest control of practically every
Senate committee from the progressive
Democrats and give it to a conserva
tive Democratic-Republican combina
tion. Such a combination might be
made in some of the more Important
committees, and It will be all the more
likely to be brought about If the pro
gressive Democratic Senators persist
In boasting of their power and of the
way they are going to compel the con
servatives to fall in line.
There is little effort at present to
reconcile the two Democratic factions
tn the Senate, and the Ill-feeling that
developed when the Senate was organ
ised has not subsided tn any appreci
able degree. Some little thing may
happen early in the special session to
vtart open hostilities between pro
irresslves and conservatives, and If the
firht bresks out afresh It may mean
