That the wool tarff revision bill would pass house over the president's veto is quite apparent today. The vote late yesterday on the compromise bill, as report- ed by the conference committee, was 206 to 9D, or considerably more than a required two-thirds for passing over the veto. The bill went to tie senate today and the free list bill was also ex- pected to be reported in both houses, but without an agreement. No vote will be taken on vetoes, it is promised by Chairman Un- derwood, before Friday. STAR-JOURNAL BUREAU, Munsey Building. WASHINGT9N, Aug. of the greatest victories yet won in the march of progressive government was aj3ecisjon_pf the conferees on the bill and the farmers' free list to hold their conferences in public.

The first long step toward doing away with dark-lantern methods of considering hills in secret conference wag taken when the conferees on the wool and free list bills, meeting in -the identical chamber where Senator Aldrich so long held forth, threw open the doors and invited the reporters and the public to step inside. It wns a most remarkable proceeding anil over-shadowed in Importance the fact that a final agreement was reached ou the wool tariff Senator LaPollette brought about tins re.orm in a very unexpected man- ner. When, the conferees met it was a general feeling that the tariff legislation was in its most critical stage. There was a flock of corre- spondents and-local reporters in the offing. The committee, into secret conclave. When the dcors were closed Sena- tor LaFollette made an announcement which ran something like this: "Gentlemen, I think the meetings of this conference committee and all other conference committees should 'be public.
