CONGRESS PASSES 2 BILLION MARK IN APPROPRIA T0A5 YICTORY IN DISTANCE Senate Republicans Charge That It Exceeds in Extrava gance All of Its Predecessors, Even Allowing for the National Defence Measures. Washington, Aug. 22. A day of con tinuous conferences here by the special committee of railway presidents has perceptibly cleared the prospect for the sdoptlon of a peaco plan which will avert the threatened tleup of the trjna portatlon llnca of the United Sta'tes. There are predictions that an adjust cent will be reached, although no definite proposals for the solution of the problem have been announced. The question uppermost In the de liberations of the railroad executives was not whether President Wilson's proposal should he accepted or re jected, but what counter proposal could U devised that would be acceptable to the President and to the employees. All through the torrid day the com mittee of ( Ight wrestled with this prob lem it 1th the understanding that they were to report to their colleagues In the evening. It Is understood that tentative Washington, Aug. 22. After having spent three perilous years In the Arc tic, Knslgn Fltxhugh Green, the young American naval officer who represented this Government on the "Crocker Land" Arctic expedition, notified the Navy De partment this morning of his cafe ar rival at Copenhagen. How many members of the party have reached safety with him Is not yet known. The American Legation at Co penhagen will take Immediate steps to assist Green and provide Btich other means ns practicable for others of the expedition. The so-called "Crocker Land" which Peary believed ho had discovered Is not referred to aa existing In l'nslgn Green's report. As this officer went In the ca pacity of an official Government repre sentative to survey this land and report whether tt actually could bo found, his observation are taken as finally dis posing of Peary's supposition.

Expenditures appropriated or authorised at this ses sion of Congress amount to more than 1 2,000,000,000, according to figures com piled by Senator Penrose and read In the Senate to-day. Senator Smoot began the attack on the Administration by referring to ths total of appropriations. Senator Penrose said the limit of the "debauch," aa he called It, could not be gauged by the appropriations alone. Authorisations and commitments must also be taken Into account, he contended. .Mr. Penrose had figures to show that tho total appropriation would amount to 1,71MS2,J22. and that In addition authorization committing the Govern ment to expenditures In the future reach 1636,641,97". This gave a grand total of expenditures appropriated or author ized at thH) session of 2.347,127.69. Senator Penrose enumerated these au thorizations as follows: New appropriation bill $411,192,027 Sundry civil appropriation bill 1.S27.000 Fortifications appropria tion bill 14,100,000 River and harbor appro priation bill :,724.S0 Flood control bill 60,400.000 Good roads bill, 79,000.000 Senator Smoot produced natures to show that the present session had ap propriated In the bills already pssieci and certain to ias the unprecedented sum of f 1.630.3S3.682. which Is 1516.446. 671 greater than the appropriations at tho last session. Allowing for the in creased appropriations on account of na tional defence, this leaves the net In crease over the previous session approxi mately $150,000,000. Senator Simmons. North Carolina. Democrat, submitted rr- j urc-i tending to show a total eomewna. smaller, but Senator tfmoot challenged It. .Mr. Simmons declared that he had ob tained his figures from the Treasury De partment, and that If there was an Isaac as to their accuracy It was between the Senator from Utah and the Treasury of ficials. The suggestion that the present ses sion of Congress had authorized the ex penditure of more than $2,000,000,000 brought several Democratic Senators to their feet In an attitude of violent pro test. Senator Williams declared that the flood control bill had passed the House, but had not yet passed the Sen ate and that Senator Penrose had no right to Include It In the list of ex penditures. Senator O'Qorman asked Mr. Smoot (f It were not true that the Republican LLOYD GEORGE SEES "Germany Has Missed Her Chance, and She Knows It," Says Briton.
