ANXIOUS MEMBERS ARE PREPARING TO GO HOME Repairing of Political Fences Far More Important Than Congressional Demands. WASHINGTON", May 1. Administra tion leaders In congress are beginning to feel a good deal of concern about the chances of putting through the several measures on which President Q'aft hns set his heart. Hot weather has already settled on the city and stifling days are sure to create a general desire among members of congress to get away. Many who have hard political battles In pros pect now are making their plans to leave. Nearly all the Taft bills are suspended by more or less uncertain threads. The railroad bill, which is the pending busi ness in bolh branches, Is not out of dan ger. Tho amendments already adopted in the senate and house will produce measures so widely different that har mony in conference threatens to be ut terly out of the question. The house has adopted an amendment making provision for ascertaining the physical valuation of railroads and this is suro to meet with opposition In the senate. Jt Is said also that on the final vole the house is likely to strike out-the provision for tho creation of a com merce court, a feature that is certain to be retained by tho senate. Indications point to the adoption of provisions for the making of traffic agreements which will be at variance. By the time the bill reaches conference President Taft will have returned to "Washington and It Is hoped he may bring the conferees togethor. Chairman Mann of the house commit tee and Chairman Elkins of the senate committee both hope to bring tho bills to their final votes this week. In Caleudar Pom. That the administration senators 'Will put the bill through In about the form In which it now appears on the calen dar Is indicated by ths vote last woek on the Cummins amendment relating to traffic agreements. Supporters of the long and short haul amendment, which was Introduced by Senator Dixon, say they have votes enough to Incorporate It In tjio bill. What measure will be taken up In the senate after tho vote on the railroad bill Is a mutter of speculation. The ad ministration senators want to bring up tho bill giving to tho president unlimited authority to withdraw public lands for conservation purposes, uut Democratic senators, under the lead of Mr. Bailey, will Insist that the statehood bill shall be considered. In the house there is nome demand that the postal savings bank hill will be taken up. but It is sllll In committee and an order of a majority of the houso may bo necessary to dislodge It. Peculiar situations exist In relation to bolh the statehood and the postal bank bills. The first has passed tho houso and a radically different bill has been report ed from tho senate committee on terri tories. The postal bank hill has passed the senate, but In a form which soems to be wholly unsatisfactory to tho house. If tho statehood bill should pass tho senate in tho form In which it Is CP ported and the postal bank bill passeG tho house, in form approaching tho gon crol demand of that body, It is doubt ful whether cither bill could get out of conference. Eivors and Harbors. What the president will do with tho rivers and harbors bill is agitating many members of the senate and house. Tho measure is now In conference but no headway has been mado In disposing of tho difference between the two branches. Delay Is said to be caused by the rumor that the president will veto tho bill. Practically nothing is heard about tho antl-lnjimctloii bill, which the president Included in his programme. Tho Moon bill, fnvorod by tho administration, still is In the house commits and will not be reported until uftfir there have been oxtended hoarlngs. The commit tee on judiciary has announced that it will wall on the house committee be fore taking any action on this subject. Tho only measure in the Taft pro gramme which appcurs to have a straight road in tho land withdrawal measure. The bills pending in both branches nre so near alike that Hi Ho difficulty is ox ppclcd in reaching an agreement after the two houses havo acted. MACHINISTS MAY STRIKE ON MISSOURI PACIFIC ST. LOUIS.

John C'allan O'l.onghlln. former assis tant secretary of state, who conducted the negotiations between Mr. Roosevelt and the Vatican was severely casjlgatcd by tho archbishop. Tho archbishop's sub ject was "Loyally" In bringing up the Vatican subject he said. "Tho secretary of state. Cardinal Mer ry Del Val. when asked for an audience with Colonel Roosevelt, iald: 'Wo are very happj to receive him. Tho holy fa ther would be very happy to receive him, because he has been the head of a great nation and for whom the holy father has even' respect.' Ho also said: 'When you communicate that to him, please say we hope nothing will Interfere with this decision by both the holy father and Mr, Roosevelt, of seeing each 'other, as for Instance, thin incident which happened ahoul tho Methodist college to Mr. Fair banks.' "The answer was. 'Oh: well. I cannot enter Into any conditions. Tho audience is now off. Calls It Insult. "That is insulting. Mr. Roosevelt when you were present In tho White House, did you stand at the door welcoming Into your parlor or your dining room the rlff-i-af of the street, who hurl stones at your head and InsulL your family'; Could vou do that? These am the conditions, Mr. Kooscvolt. You were not strictly loyal, even to your own principles, Mr. Roosevelt. You, who talk so much about the sqnaro deal. "Mr. RoohovoU, you could- at least have waited until you came to Rome and Informed yourself well of the position of this Institution anil having dono so. if vou renllv meant tho square deal, which inen now begin to doubt, you would have suld. "No, holy father, I comolo you. I stand for honor and reverence and tho right, and I cannot as an honest man In any way participate or have anything to do with this Institution.' "And, remember I am talking really and truly on principle, not personalities. 1 am talking as I would to any man. Now, Mr. Roosevelt has always said and has Klven us lo understand that he is very fond or Catholics We will let that pass. We suppose It Is true If it were true, then Mr. Roosevelt, why did you daro Insult the holy father, tho pope? Why 'did yon daro to pass over the common rlghls of men to turn down an affair of, hospitality of tho holy father, the head of tho great Catholic church, whom we revoro ns tho vicar of Christ?

WASHINGTON, May 1. The acid test of practicability of all tho government reclamation work Ib at hand. On April 1 there was due and payable Into tho reclamation fund from the settlers on the various projects, approximately f 1,000, 000 for water rights. If the farmers arc able to meet their payments, It evidences that tho government ts able to secure a return on Its Investment. If the pay ment!! aro not mado, the law Ib a failure In one of its most Importaut provisions and the operation of tho reclamation service would quickly be Drought to an end. But a careful canvass of the projects on which wator rights charges are duo Indicates that tho settlers, as a rulo, are able and willing to meet them. On tho big North Platte project In Wyoming and Nebraska thero wore 335 farms with charges due on April 1. It Is reported that 227 of these paid up as early as lost December and of the re maining 108 tho engineers in tho field cstlraato that not more than ten will be likely to be canceled. Most of those could relinquish at this time at a profit. Will Meet Obligations. Even on the Truckco-Carson project in Novada where conditions have been as unfavorable as any could be, the reports show fow delinquencies. On the Oka nogan and Sunnysido projects In "Wash ington, the Shoshone In Wyoming nnd the Huntley and Sun River In Montana. It is predicted that every farmer will meet his obligations. The payment of their Indebtedness by those farmers will probably be tho most Important slnglo event In the history of national irrigation. There never has been any doubt as to the competency of tho engineers to construct the projects, but doubt has been expressed as to whether the government could got Its money back. Tho dollars of tho success ful farmors in the districts will be the answer and the vindication of the recla mation law. There havo been failures as It was Inevitable thero should bo, but the ab solute falluros and the abandonments have been surprisingly few. In numer ous Instances those who underestimated tho task or came without experience or sufficient funds wero able to retire wlth put serious loss. In numerous other In stances many retired with some gain, but the greatest number of failures was found among those who look up tho pro Jocts ncvor intending to use them them selves, but to spoculato for profits on bona fide home makora who came later. To Protect Settler. Whore the reclamation service finds that a failure has been due to conditions not under control of the settlor, it is possible that some way maq be found to protect his rights, but whoro the evidence Is that the settler has made no effort to protect himself, he noed expect no aid from the government. The farmers who came to farm, however, arc making good The crops produced on the Irrigated lands opcratod by the water systems of the government in 1000 had an esti mated value of ?U,000,000 and tho land values Increased not less than $105,000. 000 as tho result of tho construction of the federal Irrigation works.
