The report of the illness of

It' may Ld that his illness

work now on ksnd.
Baals, f TlaUt , v;
In support Of Ike plan to'exteed the
session well' into June it is pointed ont
that it ii highly InWrtaat to win the
cordiat interest of fh federal govern
ment In the land bill, which ia still in
the senate and Which is one of th most
important measures of the session. To
be effective this measure will have to
have a form of eonflrmatlon it con
gress in ' the shape of strpplementary
legislation making fully effective pro
visions about which doubt ha been
raised. As a means of insuring fav
orable ncthon on tke measure is corf
ffress tt ts TieM that it would lie ad
visablo, sines Secretary Lane if to be
here- so soon for him to give "it his
endorsement and support. By extend
ing the session it ia also contended that
nny change the secretary might desire
to suggest could be made is toe bill.
Hiss Members
Kntil yesterday the proposal to SX
tend the session had not goae further
than informal discussion by members
of the two houses, btrt' a possibility
exists that the question may be brought
up today at one of the sessions i the
bouse' or senate. If the feeemon' Je nl
tended, save for a few minor items, it
is the members themselves that will be
hit, for the Salaries1 Of the legislators
are fixed st '100 for special Mission in
the same way they are fixed foi repr
lar sessions, and they may only receive
this snm, however long tke special see
sion is extended. Opposition to the
purpose may be voiced by members'
from tho other Islands who may object
to being held here for a, week doing
nothing until the party from Washing
ton arrives. If they return to thetf
homes for the period they will be hit
by the transportation expenses.
Thirty Day Limit '
There is nothing in the law to pre
vent the extension, of tke session, H
the legislators determine to do it,
though it cannot be extended to last
more than thirty days4h, pjsrlM far
special sessions Ixed by law. ' As th
legislstare convened May 14, if It in
desired to do so, the session eaa be
extendetl to June 19, or for more than
n week after the arrival of the party
from Washington.
Kven if this latest proposal come
to nothing all chances to adjourn the
session Wednesday of this week, as
had been planned, have gone gliramer
iri. Speaker of tke House, H. L.
Homtein, voiced tke belief yesterday
that due to delays in the senste, the
session Would in any event last thf'ouirb
this week and probably would go iatO
the fallowing week. It bad been ex
pected that the senate would complete
Its Work with the land bill Safin-day
so that it reuld go to the ' boose to
day, but as a number of eleventh honr
amendments to the bill were brought
forward Saturday it is unlikely that it
will find its way to the house before
tomorrow. This means it could not be
passed bv the house, even tn the Short

Attempts of the Germans to
disarm Polish troops of theUk-
raifie And Minsk governments is
told tn a Moscow message under
date of May 19. The efforts met
with strong and serious resist
ance.
BRAVELY RESIST
The second Polish corps, sta
tioned at fCanoff defied an ulti
matum to disarm within twenty
four hours. On receipt of the
defiance the Germans apologized,
saying that the order was a mis
understanding but at midnight
the Germans attacked ths Poles
and captured the village they
were defending. Thereupon, the
Poles entrenched themselves and
battled with the Teuton forces
said to have numbered 154,000
causing considerable losses and
at the same time suffering heavi
ly themselves. This fight lasted
for several days and the Germans
were driven back at points losing
several guns.
OTHER VIOLATIONS
Delayed despatches, dated last
Tuesday say that the Germans
are persistent in their violations
of the Brest-Litovsk treaty in the
Ukraine, Finland Livcnia the
Black Sea and Baltic districts and
other occupied territory which
has aroused the hatred of the
Russians there and is bringing
many official protests to which no
apparent heed is shown.
Hussian commerce fleets and
even a hospital ship have been at
tacked by German sailors in Bal
tic and Arctic waters and are un
able to leave jorts.
HELP BATONS
A statement Jrom Livenia says
that there is a reign of terror in
progress and killings under the
guise of military executions are
of daily occurence. "Troops arc
assisting the Teuton barons in
bringing about wholesale arrests
of their political enemies. The
issuance of pamphlets dealing
with political subjects has been
made punishable with death.
Labor leaders are the greatest
sufferers.
In Finland it is charged that
the Germans are supporting the
White guard and are persistent In
their, persecutions of the Rus
sians. a. a.
