THE WASHINGTON TIMES, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1912.
SENATE MUST PICK
Congress Faces Immense
Amount of Work When It
, Opens Next Monday.
One week from yesterday gavels will
fall in the Senate and Houao calling- to or
der the laat session of the Sixty-second
Concrete. By constitutional limitation
the aeaalon ends March 4. and an- im
mense amount of nork muit be done by
the two homes during the next three
At the outset the Senate will face the
election of a presiding officer, made
necessary by the denth of Vice President
Sherman. For monthn before Mr. flher-
man'a death, the upper chamber was
unable to elect a President Pro Tempore
and conditions are but llttlo changed to
day. The Bnnste roll call will show tha
absence of tta? other members who have
been called V death during tne recess.
They are Senator He) burn of Idaho, and
Senator Rayner of Maryland. Tho lat
Senate Will Adjourn.
Out of respect to the memory of
the dead, the Benato probably will ad
journ upon three different days with
out transacting business. This will
make the crush of legislation in the
upper body all tho more noticeable
In the closing; days of tho session.
The Senate, under an order previous
ly passed, must constitute Itself a
court and proceed with the trial of
Judge Bobert W. Archbald. of the
Commerce Court, on December 8. The
seven members of the House Judiciary
Committee, who are to act as man
agers on the part of the House, will
Met Wednesday to arrange the de
tails of the trial. Because of tha
complications of tho Archbald trial,
the necessity for the election of a
presiding officer, and general rush
f legislative business, the Senate
probably will hold numerous night
sessions before March 4.
The House will have Its hands full
with appropriation bills, which must
originate in the so-called popular body
of Congress. The Appropriations Com
mittee is now "speeding up" on the
legislative, executive and Judicial bud
get and this will be ready for report
next week. It Is also hoped to get the
District of Columbia appropriation bill
ready for presentation to the House be
fore the end of next week.
in view oi yio approacning extra ses
sion, it Is not anticipated that the
House will uttempt tariff legislation so
long as a Republican President remains
In the White House. There will be
nothing to pre cnt the Ways and Means
Committee from beginning hearings on
the tariff schedules, however, and It la
unofficially announced that these hear
ings will begin tho first week In Janu
ary. In this event one or more sched
ules mav be readv for report to the
House when the extra session convenes
A billion dollars probably will bo ap
