CONGRESS WAS TALKATIVE.
Uig Task Imposed on Official Reporters
by Lawmakers Many Meetings
by Committees New Record
Washington. Never before In the
history of tho world has thero been
such a task Imposed on shorthand re
porters as tho ono which has Just been
completed at tho capltol. Thero has
been moro talk recorded thero In tho
last seven months than was over put
Into print anywhero boforo In the
same length of time.
When tho first session of tho fltty
ntnth congress adjourned It was
found that tho Congressional Record
had geno beyond tho 10,000 page mark.
Only onco has It eve;- reached that
flguro beforo In one session of con
gress, and that was In the fifty-first
(tho Uced rules session), which sat un
til October 1. Tho congross In seven
moutlu did as much talking on tho
floors of tho houso nnd senate as the
flfty-flrst did In ten months. The house
contributed tho greater volume of tho
oratory, but tho 70 day senate debate
on tho railroad rate bill was qulto un
precedented In that body for Its con
tlnuousncss, quantity, rapidity and
The official reporters of tho houso
who take nn Interest In such things
have n collection of figures which
show that tho debates In that body
nverage n moro rapid rato than any
whero clso. For Instance the record
often contains CO columns of reported
matter for a six hours session. This
means nn avcrago of about 1C5 words
n minute tho whole time. Some men,
llko Mr. Tnwncy, Mr. Hepburn, Mr.
Mondcll and Mr. Clayton, speak with
such delightful deliberation and clear
ness that they could almost bo taken
by a good longhand writer; but tho
avcraso Is made by tho rapidity of oth
ers, like Mr. Laccy, Mr. Hull, Mr. De
Armond, Mr. Stephens of Texas, Mr.
Bonyngo, Mr. Glllott of California, Mr.
Wekes, Mr. Cockran nnd .Mr. Little
field, whoso conversation In colloquy
often goes about tho 200 word mark.
Dut tho debates on tho lloor are on!
part of tho doings. Never beforo have
thore been so many committee hear
ings. A brand new chairman of the
house committee on appropriations
camo In this session, and under the
leadership of Mr. Tawnoy tho depart
ments of tho government havo received
such an overhauling as never before.
This ccmmlttco was In session nlmost
all the time, nnd the printed hearings
on the appropriation bills alone
equalled In volume tho entire house
proceedings In soma former con
gresses. Thoro was scarcely nn Important
house committee that has not had more
hearings than usunl. Often six or
seven committees have been In session
at onco nnd there was one memorable
day when 11 committees of the house
sat at tho satuo time, nnd seven ot
them tan all day. Tho committee sten
ographers' record of tho assignments to
hearings shows thnt thero havo been
CSC during tho session. Ot these the
regular committee forco reported 601
and cutsldo reporting firms had to1 be
called In to tuko caro of 166.
Thoro was very little general politi
cal debate, strango as It may seem.
Almost nil tho talk has been of the
kind that seeks to attain a dellnlto re
sult, and whether on appropriation
bills or on matters of specific legisla
tion tho debate was of tho sort that
The senate committee hoarlngs,
whllo very much less voluminous than

BIG CROP IN MEXICO TO CAUSE
