THE WASHINGTON TIMES, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1915.
CONGRESS HELD UP
A. F. of L.to Try to Force Pas
sage Before End of Session,
But Chance Is Slim.
Russian - American War
Relief Society Will Give
Bridge Party and Dance
Many Important measures for which
organized labor has been fighting this
session are still pending. Friends of
these bills In Congress will try In the
closing days ot the session to get action
on ihe principal ones. Whether suc
cess Is possible so late In the session
remains to be seen.
Failure of the Immigration bill,
through veto of President Wilson. Is a
deep disappointment to the American
Federation of Labor leaders. However,
they are convinced that next session
will see Its passage.
Other measures pending In which la
bor Is- especially interested Include the
The Booher-Hughes convict labor bill,
applicable to the domestic convict labor
The Stone-Hensley convict labor bill,
which applies to foreign convict-made
The bill for a bureau of labor safety,
a measure looked on as especially Im
portant to workers In many lines of
The La Follette seamen's bill, In
tended to eradicate evils appertaining
to the present system of Involuntary
servitude for seamen.
The printing bill, with Its necessary
kt Foster bill for a bureau of mines,
Intended, among other things, to In
crease the number of rescue stations,
and to help conditions among both the
coal and metal miners.
The child labor bill, which passed the
House, but so late In the session that
It cannot be passed by the Senate.
The bill to extend the operations of
the boiler Inspection law so as to pro
vide for Federal Inspections of all parts
of the railway locomotive as well as the
These are the foremost of the meas
ures In which labor Is now tuklng ac
tive Interest. It Is expected most of
them will fall this session and will "nave
to be revived next Congress. If there
should be an extra session, they would
be actively pressed. This applleB espe

Efforts to pass the seamen's bill this
session have by no means been aband

One County in Oregon Charges
Loss of 300 Head of Cattle
to Rabid Wild Animals.
MME. GEORGE BAKHMETEFF.
The spreading of .rabies by Infected
coyotes among cattle grazing In the
national forests has assumed a grave
aspect, according to a report received
by the Forest Service from the dis
trict forester In charge of the forests
In Washington and Oregon.
Numerous townships In eastern Ore

nil dogs be muzzled lest those that
have been bitten by rabid coyotes do
velop hydrophobia and attack hu
mans or domestic animals.
Efforts are being made by the State
authorities of Oregon to stop the
spread of hydrophobia by this means,
and officers of the Forest Service are
uo-operaltng In attempts to kill oft
mo coyotes. Jn one -county aione a
loss of 300 head of cattle Is charged
to rabid coyotes.

"Vulgar, vindictive, and vituperative,"
were the adjectives applied to Billy
Sunday's preaching by the Rev. U. G.
B. Pierce, of All Souls' Unitarian
Church, at his service last night.
During the effort to get Mr. Sunday
hero Dr. Pierce declined to make any
comments about, him. His comments
last night were aroused by a recent at
tack made by the evaneellnt tinnn
Charles W. Eliot, president emeritus of
"Our presses have been working over
time to have reprinted the address of
Dr. Eliot. In Philadelphia, on 'The Need
of a Renewed Christianity.' " said Dr.
Pierce. There are copies here for dis
tribution so you can Judge for your
selves whether Dr Eliot's utterances
deserved the vulgar, vindictive, and
vituperative language of the evangelist
who is tryinsr hard to inflict himself
P.r. Pierce defended Unltarlanism,
which has been under severe Are from
