SESSIONS APPROPRIATE SIXTY BILION DOLLARS Wartime Prohibition and Child Labor Law; Recon struction and Railroad Legislation Get Nowhere. By L. C MARTIN (United Press St ff Correspondent.) Washington, March 5.--The Six ty-fifth congress died yesterday. it leaves a record of three sessions, two of them remarkable for their legisla li\ve accomplishments, and the third for its lack of accomplishment. The 66th will )e known in Amer ican history as the $60,000,000,000 congress. Its three sessions a.ppro printed approximbtely that amnount. 'this breaks all American records, and probably all world records for a i.ingle congress. The congress was divided into three sessions, and these marked 1hree distinct phases of activity. The first was the war making ses sion. It began April .2; 1911, arid ended 188 days later, Oct. 6. The seconl was the war winning scsston. It was the longest single session the Amejican congress ever held, lasting 354' days, from Dec. 3, 1917, to Nov. 21, 191;. The third wa, the readjustment session, lasting Irom Dec. 2, 1913, until yesterday. The war makirlg session opened with a declaration of war on Ger many, passed by the senate April 4, and by the house April 6, and im mediately signed by President Wil son. There quickly followed a bill pro viding for $7,000,000,000 bonds to linance the war and help our allies; a: bill appropriating money for the army, the draft )bill, subjecting men between 21 and p,1 to military serv (Continued On Page Three.)

GOMPERS DINES WITH DUKE IN PARIS Munitions Broker and A. F. of L. Delegates Other Guests; League of Nations Criticized by Labor Leader By LOWELL MELLETT ( United Press Staff Correspondent.) Paris, March 5.--How Russian no bility and American labor discussed "cabbages and kings" at a luncheon in the Hotel Ritz became known to day, although the affair wasn't ex actly public. The American labor missioners, headed by Samuel Gompers, were the guests yesterday of Grand Duke Alexander. The luncheon was ar ranged by Charles Mayer, New York munitions broker. The chief topic of conversation was bolshevism, al though the league of nations and President Wilson came in for more or less debate. The tall aristocrat, gray-Vandyked duke, and the sturdy little labor leader presented a strange physical contrast, but they are said to have reached striking degree of unanimity of opinion. The grand duke was un sparing in his criticism of Wilson. Gompers, pointing out his own inde pendence, said he supported or op posed the president, as .he occasion demanded. The grand duke expressed scorn of the league of nations, calling it a "dbughboy-Tommy scheme," and saying that while the rest of the world might accept the "Anglo American plan" temporarily, it would eventually have a league of its own. 'i'he construction of the league, he concluded, made him think of the way French poker is played -- with leuces and joker wild. Now, he de clared, Wilson has gone home with the deuces and the joker in his pock et. No return luncheon has been ar ranged. BANKERS [NTERTAINING ROSS IEYVOLITIONIST (Special United Press Wire.) New York, March 5.-When Ma dame Breshkeovckaya, the "little grandmother oa ;lhe Russian revolu tion," last came to America she took refuge among the lowliest of the po litical refugees, and was sheltered by Jane Addams at Hull house, Chicago. She has returned, and this time she seems to be the guest of the National City bank of New York. Her inter preter and guide is one William W. Welch, who was a junior officer of the Petrograd branch of the National City bank. Accompanying her as a witness before the senate committee was Roger Smith, manager of that branch of the great Wall street in stitution. When last Breshkovkaya was in America the big bank's lawyer, Elihu Root, wanted all Russian political refugees treated as criminals. To day she comes asking for foreign troops with which to establish in Russia a government which will en able these foreign bankers to exploit the Russian commercial field. And she travels in our best moneyed so ciety on this occasion.

WILSON GLUTTION ll FOR THE LIME - LIGHT Says Senator Moses; While Republicans Rap Presi dent He Is Prepared for League "Show Down." WILSON FOR PRESIDENT IN NINETEEN-TWENTY While Politicians Battle, President Sails for France and Will Continue Even Tenor of His Way. (Special United Press Wire.) Washington, March 4.---President Wilson plans to leave Washington this afternoon in the midst of the bitterest light in his political career. Returning to France to complete his work on the league of nations, he leaves behind definite assurance that a sufficient numnlber of repulican senators have pledged .themisellves to defeat the ratification of the league I if presented to the next senate in its present tortm. The issue is clean cut. Every re publican senator who has been so riously spoken of as a presidential possibility has alijgned himself against the president'~s, league plan. The fate of. the league rests in the hands of the rank and Zile of tie American peoiple. On their deciston' also depends whether those Taft re publicans out of congress who favor the present league document will control the republican party in 1920 or whether Senator Lodge and his colleagues in the senate will be iin the saddle when the campaign year rolls around. Republican senators stated the re publicans wish to make the league dociment a party issue, going before the country in an aggresive campaign and staking everything on the peo ple's decision. The president's friends say this is agreeable to him. They believe, if necessary. he may even stand for re election in 1920 with tile league cov enant as an issue. Bills failing to pass include the army, navy, Indian, agriculture, sun dry civil general deficiency appropri ation bills, hundred million measure to provide farm houses for soldiers and sailors oil leasing and water power bills. Wilson arrived at the capitol I about 11 o'clock and went immedi ately to his room to sign the neces sary bills. He signed the $1,000, 000,000 bill guaranteeing the farm ers a price of $2.26 for this season's wheat crop as his first act after reaching the capitol. He also signed the diplomatic and consular appro priation, public lands, validation, military academy appropriation, Dis trict of Columbia appropriation and senate pension bills. Wilson left Washington this aft ernoon prepared for a "show down" before the people in a fight with ser ate republicans. He will not change his plans to return to France on schedule and has not relaxed his de termination to call no extra session of congress now, it is officially stated. Wilson believes the people will de mand the ratification of the league covenant when the time comes Senator Moses issued a statement I severely criticising Wilson for "his gluttony for the limelight" and ex plaining an extra session would have to be called before June 30, due to the failure of the army bill's passage. He said, "the republicans have been guided by patriotism rather than partisanship and have not attempted to block any message vital to essen tial industries of the country. The president's reluctance to have even a subordinate congress in session at any time is well.known. His gluttony for the limelight is well known and is exceptionally danigerous at the pres ent minute. There are senators on both sides who believe the presi dent's dogged refusal to summon congress at the present is due to his desie to monopolizcrj, the interna tional stage. "Failpure of the army bill will Sautomatically reduce the army to a pre-war fighting basis of 175,000 t men on June 30. "We are obligated Sto maintain in France substantially - half a million men," Moses added. I "These overseas forces must-be made up of drafted men now abroad." He said the public should "appeal for the immed4ate return of the Stroops." TH~ WEATHER. Fair and warmer Fot. tomorrow; rising tenperaitur, (Special United Press \VIirn, i New Yt tk, A1;',.11 .
