Immigration .Measure and
Owen's Corrupt Practices
Bill Will Re Shelved.
Washington. Aug. The activities
ft the leaders on both sides In the Sen
ate indicate a concurrence In the Demo
cratic programme for an adjournment
of Congress before the end of next
week. The Democratic purpose la to
adjourn Thursday. If possible, but not
later than Friday night and so as to
avoid having the event Interfere with
the plans for notifying President Wilson
of his nomination on September ?. at
Shadow Lawn, N. .1.
The plan for adjournment means that
the efforts of Senator Owen to pass the
corrupt practices bill, which vrovoked
the outbreak In th Senate yesterday,
and of other Senators to put through
the Immigration bill wilt not bear fruit.
The understanding la that the Demo
cratic leaders have guaranteed enough
votes to prevent either measure passing
If the Republicans retrain from delaying
the adjournment date. ,
Representative Fltxgerald, chairman
of the Appropriations Committee, has
agreed to return from New York ajid
put through tho general deficiency bill,
the last of the general appropriations
bills, and have It before the Senate
Monday, The Republicans will Innlst
that this bill be passed before a vote la
taken on the wnr revenue measure. The
Democrats have acceded to this request
as a guarantee that no legislative "rid-,
era" will be attempted by the Demo-
crats In the closing hours of Congress.
To clear the way for adjournment i
Miiorlty Leader Kltchln sent urgent
telegrams to-day to all House absentees
asking that they return at once for .
tho final legislative drive of the session. I
The House has the shipping bill as
amended and the forthcoming revenue
bill conference report to dispose of next .
week, in no senate it s pianneo o ,. of alx children, the eldest of wnom is nccet,ti hv them , or th at th cy lie ner
lay aside the revenue bill to pass the.ony J5, ' '
deficiency appropriation bill as soon as
It gets through the House,
"When that la done." said Senator
Simmons, chairman of the Finance Com
mittee, "all general debate on the reve
nue hill will halt and It will be rushed
through. Meantime Senate amend
ments to the House bill are being In
formally considered with Ways and
Means Committee members and a final
report will be ready almost as soon
aa the bill reaches the House to bo
sent to conference.
"With the leveuue bill passed I do
not think that anything can stop ad
journment of Congress unless something
entirely unexpected should develop."
