Washington.—More time has been
devoted by congress to the considera
tion of the Underwood tariff bill than
ever before was given to the consid
eration of any other tariff measure,
and the present special session has al
ready run two weeks beyond the pre
vious record for a special session, with
no end yet In sight There Is little
prospect that the Underwood bill can
be signed by the president prior to
September 20, tut if the bill becomes
a law on that day a total of 166 days
will have been consumed In Its con
sideration and passage.
The longest previous special session
of congress was that of the sixty-first
congress, at which the Payne-Aldrich
law was passed. That session ran
