ly Agreed on Ambitious
Washington.—The program of anti
trust and currency legislation that
faces congress for the ensuing 12
months has become fairly well out
lined in the lau week. President Wil
son and the democrat leaders In the
two houses of congress apparently
have agreed on an ambitious plan of
legislative work, which will bring all
of the most Important reforms con
templated by the Wilson administra
tion within the period between now
and the end of the next regular ses
sion of congress.
The tariff bill will be out of the sen
ate and in the hands of a conference
committee of the house and senate be
fore the end of this week. Currency
legislation promises to dominate con
gressional activity within a few days.
Anti trust legislation will be up soon.
The influence of republicans as well
as democrats, who long have been ac
tive in the fight for more adequate
regulation of the trusts, will be felt
in the making of these reforms.

The senate has finally passed the
democratic tariff bill.
Democratic lines in the senate
stood solidly against the final on
slaught of the tariff fight. With par
ty leaders urging their colleagues on
to approval of the bill, the ranks
closed up against the anti-free wool
and anti-free sugar forces and defeat
ed all amendments to the bill as fast
as they came to the vote.
Attempts to restore a duty on raw
wool and to raise the duty on woolen
manufactured goods made in succes
sive amendments by Senators LaFol-
lette, Catron and Penrose were de
feated without the loss of a party
Among the amendments defeated
was that of Senator Norris for a
heavy tax on inheritances. This was
beaten 58 to 12, the following republi
cans joining the democrats in voting
against it: Senators Brandegee, Ca
tron, Clark, of Wyoming; Colt, Fail,
Gallingcr, Jackson, Lippitt, Lodge,
Oliver, Penrose, Perkins, Root, Sher
man and Sutherland.
Two attempts by Senator La Fol-
lette to secure the adoption of substi
tutes for the democratic wool tariff
