Washington. Tho most- stronuoun
session of recent years has pnsBcd
Into history. The net results or tho
extra session, in comparison with tho
ambitious program adopted ut tho
outset, were not large.
Catiadlau reciprocity was brought
as near roallty hb tho executive nnd
legislative departments could ndvnnco
It; statehood was ausured for New
Mexico nnd Arizona; campaign pub
licity legislation was passed in a form
satisfactory to its most nrdent ad
mirers, and provision was made for
nn enlarged Houso of Representatives
based on tho 1910 census.
A Democratic House, tho first since
1S9B, attempted to make into Inwo
the views of Democrats on tariff re
vision, but executlvo disapproval ren
dered futile nil their efforts.
All Tariff Bills Vetoed.
Two tariff bills, one materially re
ducing tho duties on wool nnd woolen
goods of till classes, nnd tho other
p.nclng on the free list articles of
machinery and tools used by farmera
and amended to Include many other
items, were vetoed by President Taft.
Hawley of Oregon nnd Humphrey
of Washington voted to sustain the
president on both measures. Laltorty
of Oregon and French of Idnho, voted
to sustain the president on thu wool
bill, but voted with the Democrats to
pass the free list bill over his veto.
Waahburton and Ln Toilette of Wash
ington voted to overrldo the veto of
A cotton revision bill which carries
as an amendment un iron nnd Bteel
schedule met a similar fate. Tho
House, under the leadership of Rep
resentative Underwood, of Alabama,
chairman of the ways nnd means
committee, nnd Speaker Clark, en
deavored to pass tho woolen and free
list bills over the veto,-but the noces
sary two-thirds voto could not be
Treaties Raise Issue.
Genoral arbitration treaties with
Great Britain nnd Frcnce were" sent
to the Senate by President Taft, but
they received a frigid welcome be
cause tho Upper Houso contended
thnt one provision of the treaties
usurps tho Senate's constitutional
The resolution relating to popular
election of Senators was amended by
tho Senato and was sent to confer
ence from which it cannot emerge
New Mexico and Arizona Admitted.
Yielding to the Insistence of Presl
dent Taft that the new constitution
of Arizona should not contain n pro
vision providing for a recall of Judg03,
a new resolution providing for tho nd
mission of Arizona and Now Mexico,
with directions to omit tho Judiciary
ictuii jium uh organic law, waB
passed by both houses and will be
signed by President Taft.
The Joint resolution provides for
Arizona's admission with tho. consti
tution adopted by the convention of
July 20, 1910, and later ratified by the
Arizona voters, upon the "fundamen
tal condition" that article 8 of tho
constitution relating to tho recall of
public officers shall bo held and con
strued not to apply to Judicial olll
cers and that the Arizona peoplo shall
give their assent to that construction.
Secretary Wilson May Retire.
That Dr. Liberty H. Uailey cf New
York, one of tho leading agriculturists
of tho United States and the man who
was named by President Roosevelt to
head the Country Life Commission, Is
to bo appointed secretary of agricul
ture to succeed Secrotary Jamoa Wil
son of Iowa, Is the report which is in
That Secrotary Wilson's tenure of
ofilce will bo brief 1b the conviction
that has settled down over Washing
ton. Tho revelations as to puro food
laws administration In the nnti-Wlloy
plot and the manner ln which Secro
tary McCabo has dominated the de
partment so as to bring discredit on
it, seem to make it impossible for tho
president to keep him.
May Not Reprimand Wiley.
Opinion is strong here that Presi
dent Taft Is wavering in his determi
nation to reprimand Dr, Harvey W.
Wiley, chief chomlst, and Instead, will
advise Secretary Wilson to get rid of
Solicitor McCabe, his legal adviser,
who curbed tho pure food Bpecmllst.
If this happens, the president will
likely turn tho enforcement of tho
food and drugs act over to Dr. Wiley,
Publicity Dill 8loned by Taft.
President Taft slgnod tho cam
paign publicity bill. It provides for
eoniplc-to publicity of -campaign expen
dltures by candidates for both tho
Houso and Senato before elections
and limits the amount which may be
spent ln a single campaign to $5000
for a candidate or tho Houso arid
110,000 for a candidate tor th flonato.
