WORK OF CONGRESS
What Was Accomplished By- the
Session Just Closed.
The last session of congress pasted
132 public aots, which -had been ap
proved by the president, up to and in
cluding the month of May. Many of
these were of general public Interest
and were carefully considered by both
An act to define and fix the standard
of value, to maintain the parity of all
forms of money issued or coined by the
United States, to refund the public
debt aad for other purposes, was the
first bill pasted through the house of
representatives, and became a law on
March 14th last.
This bill is the most important of all
that became law during the session.
It plaoes the fiaanoes of the country
firmly on the g-old standard. If o pub
llo official can hereafter .disparage any
dollar issued by the United States until
the Senate and Heuse, with approval
of the Presldent,shall concur in amend
ing this statute.
The bill also provides for the refund
In? of the national debt, amounting to
9350,000,000, into 2 per cent bonds.
Since the passage of the act this re
funding process has been constantly
roing on, and now reaohes about $280,
000,008. As the old bonds bore interest
at the rate of 3, 4 and 5 per cent, the
national saving of interest on the
bands already refunded amounts to
considerably more than $5 000,000.
This saving will nearly equal the entire
in terest on the $200,000,000, bor
rowed to pay the expense of the Span
Should we succeed in refunding the
entire indebtedness of eight hundred
and fifty millions at the low rate of 2
per cent Interest the national saving
in interest would not only pay the in
terest on the Spanish war loan, but
also the interest on tne $262,000,
000 of bonds Issued by the last admi
nistration in time of peace.
Under the minor provisions of the
bill there has baen a great Increase
of national banks of limited capital in
the imtller towns, particularly et the
western and southern states.
Bills providing for the government
of the Hawaiian Islands and of Porto
Rico, after long consideration, have
finally become laws, while the bill for
the government of Alaska bat been
The feature of the Porto Rlcan bill
which occasioned most disousslon is the
snost liberal toward that island of any
ever Incorporated into law. It provides
a slight tariff on the products of that

country coming to the United States,
and also on products shipped from the
United States to Porto Rico, excepting
eceesaries of life, all of whloh is tur
ned over to the treasury of Porto Rico,
for a period of two years, or until local
taxation can be provided by the new
government. At the end of two years
trade between Porto Rtoo and the
Ualted States becomes absolutely free.
Nob only this; Congress has approp-
prlated all the revenue derived from
goods imported into the Waited
States from Porto Rloan since the oc
cupation, and amounting to more than
$2,000,000, for the benefit of the people
of that island. All tariff oolleoted at
Porto Rloan ports Is aleo to be used for
that . purpose. This was a boon to
those poople, justified by the clrcuma
tanaes, and unparalleled for generosity
to irard any people.
This congress also passed the free
homes bill, giving free homesteads on
the public lands to actual bona fide
settlers. This was a measure pledged
by the platform of all parties.
An amendment to the pension act of
1890, known as the Grand Army bill,
has also become a law.
A law of much importance passed
during the session was that allowing
the free transportation' in bond of all
goods shipped through the United
Stated from a foreign country. This
will be of great benelt to the shipping
interests of the country.
An anti-trust law amendment to the
Sherman law of 1890, as effective and
far-reaching as the constitution will
permit, has also passed the house of
The appropriation bills have been
carefully scrutinized, and although
the aggregate is large, they are free
from all questionable items. The
growth of the country and the con
tinued disorder in the Philippine
Islands are solely accountable for the
increase in these annual bills.
It was not deemed practicable to
reduce the revenues during the last
session, but, should the present rate
of surplus oontlnue, the committee on
ways and means, having leave to sit
durlog the recess, will bring in a bill
and press its passage at the beginning
of the next session.
Meanwhile the Treasury Department
has used about twenty-eight millions
in refunding operations and will use
twenty-five millions more In the 2 per
cents already called in, thus practical
ly disposing of the accumulated sur
plus for the year.
Congress has also done much in kill
