In view of the uncertainty of getting the
tariff bill through both Rouses during the
present session, and in order to gain time,
for the transaction of other business,
there Is some talk among tariff men of
tabling the bill - and simply adopting the
free list. It is believed that there will be
little opposition to the free list, which is,
otter all, the most important change in the
present law, and which, instead of injur
ing, would to a great extent benefit the
general indictees of the country. Ho far
as Pennsylvania is concerned, her special
interests are better protected by the law
now in force than they are likely to be In

law. There are elements of demoraliza
tion at work, tending to Inure the re
committal of the measure or tho adoption
of a substitute. It is- already reported
