Tho General Deficiency Bill Likely to
Be Pushed Through the Senate.
The Butler Antl-lloml Mill Will Probably
Co mo to a Vote Tho "Filled Cheese"
Hill Six of tho Great Appropria
tion Hills Arc Now Laws.
Washington, May 25. Tho senate
committee on appropriations is sur
prised at tho headway It has been ablo
to make in the matter of pushing its
bills through tho senate. Of tho 10
great annual budgots, nil havo now
passed thosenato but the general de
ficiency bill, and Mr. Hale, In charge
of that measure, has given notice that
ho will call it up Monday. It is un
usual for this bill to bo reported
so far In advanco of tho generally ac
cepted dato of adjournment, It being
catch-all for appropriations and de
ficiencies that can not be got in until
tho last minute. Owing to tho rapidity
with which this bill has been acted
upon It may become necessary before
adjournment to pass ft small urgent de
ficiency measure covering items that
the treasury may yet call to
the attention of congress. It Is
espected that an agreement will bo
reached that w 111 result In a vote on
the Butler anti-bond bill either Mon
day or Tuesday. Tho "filled eheeso"
bill which. Mr. Sherman is urging is in
"parlous" shape, ow inj' to numerous
proposed amendments. Now that the
house has acted on the immigration
measures before It, Mr. Lodge, of Mas
sachusetts, will seek to pass one of tho
measures through the senate, so that
out of the many conflicting plans some
law may bo secured that will remedy
what aro held to be existing evils in
our present immigration statutes.
Sis of the great appropriation bills
aro now laws one, the agricultural,
without the president's approval. Tho
Indian bill has been agreed to with the
exception of four items, the most im
portant of which is that relating to ap
propriations for sectarian schools. The
final report on the legislative bill was
agreed to by the house Saturday, but
the senate has not acted upon It.
There has been no conference on the
post office bill up to this time. When
that occurs there will undoubtedly bo
a struggle between tho two houses on
the question of tho subsidies author
ized by tho senate. The naval bill has
been agreed to with the exception
of the senate reduction in the
number of battle ships, the
provisions as to the price to be paid for
armor plate and the prohibition of the
employment by government con
tractors of Naval officers on leave. It
is thought that the agreement will
finally result in three new battleships
as a compromise between the four au
thorized by the house and the two au
thorized by the senate.
Another partial report on tho sundry
civil bill vas agreed to Saturday and
one more conference will doubtless get
this large budget out of the way. The
District of Columbia and the fortifica
tions bills are in conference.
