SANDUSKY, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, JULY 26, 1911, THEIR CONTROVERSY SETTLED BY HOUSE LAST EDITION REVISION OF COTTON SCHEDULE APPROVED Debate to Be Limited for Early Measure in Senate, WASHINGTON, .July gressman Isaac R. Sherwood, of Toledo, won a decided victory ov- er Congressman Carl C. Anderson, of the Sandusky district, in the house democratic caucus when, upon motion of Chairman Under- wood, of the ways and means committee, the Sherwood dollar-a- day pension bill was ordered upon the calendar. By this action the Anderson bill was displaced and the democrats put themselves squarely and positively on record as in favor of pension legislation at the outset of the regular ses- sion. Following the failure of Gen. Sher- wood to secure a hearing on the floor last week it had been expected that the fight would be renewed Monday 'but it went over until the caucus called to consider the cotton ule. Representative Anderson was present at the caucus and thure no semblance of a contest when Chairman Underwood offered his mo- tion. The effect of the action is u> -pake the Sherwood bill the pension mil of this congress and to put the Anderson bill back in the hands o the committee of which Sherwood i chairman. The Sherwood till wil hold its place on the calendar at th opening of the regular session in De cember.

Of the sixteen Ohio democrats, eleven were present at the caucus. The cotton revision bill was ap- proved by unanimous vote and it was pfcmned to limit the debate to tottr days so as to secure a vote, pos- sibly .this week. The committee estimates that un- oer the new rates the revenues to -be dewved from the cotton tariff in twelve months will be a decrease of a little more than 000 from last year under the Payne- Aldnch -law. Cotton clothing duties are reduced from 46 to 30 and 25 per cent; cotton cloth, not merceriz- ed or bleached, cut to 15, 20 and 25 per cent, in various grades, and'cloth composed of silk or mercerized is cut from. 42, 46 to 25 per cent. Without expectation of accomplish- ing any result .beyond the exchange of views, the democratic senators went into caucus to consider wool tariff legislation. They were much .divided on the. question. Probably the most startling development was the discovery that there was a possibility of the passage of the house wool bill through the aid of insurgent repub- lican votes. The report to this effect became current through expressions of Senator Poindexter of an insurgent, who is friendly to the house hill, and the discovery created consternation on the republican side of the chamber. There was an immediate canvass of the situation and it was found that those-mentioned as favorable to the conse bill had been placed in a false position. Three or four of the insur- gents were found to have said that they would accept the house bill if no NUMBER 247.
