Be In Order.
ashington, Feb. 27.-Congress en
rs tomorrow on the home stretch
rive toward adjournment Friday, with
-hip and spur on ai)propriation bills
rid a scramble for the tape on the
art of scores of other measures.
ight sessions are In order with an
Il-night finale, as usual, preceding
iauguration day. I
All of the am propriation measures,
scept the naval .budget are expected
> go through, although only seven of
le fourteep regular money hills have
Den completed and just two have been
igned so far by President Wilson. The
hief executive plans to be at the caup
ol the afternoon of March 4th .for
'tion on eleventh-hour measures.
Five of the appropriation lileasuires,
ie army, agriculture, sundry, civil,
gislative, and fortilcal tion are in
anfereice but agreements are expect
J. A big fight is ex-lected over the
rmy bill due to the senate's Increase
f the regular army of 175,000 men as
gainst 150,000 fixed by the house.
The question of free seeds aid of a
5,000,000 loan to farmers in drliouth
trichlen regions of the west are ty
1g up the agriculture -bill. The sen
te and ho-use are deadlocked on the
ndry bill over the $10,000,000 Muscle
hoals power amendment of the sen
te and over the $18,600,000 Plappro
riation for soldier hospitals. The
ouse probably will vote tomorrow in
Ti attempt .to clear this deadlock.
'he cnitroversy as to the legislative
fi -now revolves about the provisions
r purchase by the treasury of $200,
00,000 of farm loan bonds Proposed
y the senate. The 'hoiie will vote
'tiesday on the provision.
Little legislation except the appro
ri4tion bills is ext:ected to get
bitough -the final jam. The Fordney
mergency tariff bill comes uip tomor
-Aw in the senate for final action with
ransmission to President Wilson in
i'osI)ect. It is one measure In a
olucornered fight for precedence in
he senate. The other three bills be
id which pressure is planned are:
'he war-time laws repeal resolution;
he soldiers' bonus .measure, and the
avy appro:riation budget. The last
i expected -to bring a renewal of dis
rmament debate wvhi6h pr'omises to
o delay action as to thwarL.passage
f the measure.
Other important bills im seemed
Ibreatened with failure Tiiude the
ackers control bill, the maternity and
