Washington, Jan. 5.—A good
story is being told aliout the cap-
itol o f some o f the events that
happened at the recent Democra
tic caucus, which had under con
sideration the resolution extending
the provisions o f the present
“ w a r” revenue tax, for the com
ing year. Some o f the new mem-
liers o f Congress evidently did not
warm up to this proposition, in the
ranks o f the Democracy, and they
desired a „„no itgm on the sub

Indeed, Mr. Bryan’s finger in
the situation has been apparent
for some days. He has been work
ing not only for this prohibition,
but also against prepardness, and
it is significant that some o f his
friends are representing the argu
ments he has made and with
which the country is familiar.
The division among the Demo
crats and the support which these
critical o f the Administration are
receiving from a few of the Re
publicans will be regarded by the
central powers as evidence that
the United States will not go to
the point o f war or a rupture o f
diplomatic relations on the sub
marine issue. That this view will
influence sensibly their reply to
future American notes is clearly
apparent. Moreover, the Presi
dent cannot afford to place him

President Must Change Policy
In the light of his relations with
leaders in his own party, among
whom are Kern o f Indiana and
Martin o f Virginia, besides those
mentioned, the President is forced
to regard the attacks on the Per
sia and the other merchant ves
sels in the Mediterranean in a
way decidedly different from that
he entertained when he cut short
his honeymoon and hastened back
to Washington. It is no secret
the President felt he must force
respect for the principles he had
laid down in his various notes to
Germany and Austro-Hungary,
even if it should be necessary to
break off diplomatic relations. He
was indisposed to send more notes.
From now on it may be e x a c t
ed that a determined campaign
will be conducted in Congress
against strong action by the Ad
ministration. Efforts will be made
to prevent Anfericans from travel
ing abroad and also to secure an
embargo on arms. —Oregonian.
