Exceptional Business Activity?Many Questions of General Interest En gaged Attention. The now side-wheel steamer built at the closed, so that It is possible to sum up the record of what has been accomplished dur ing the past seven months, which consti tutes the first session of the Fifty-seventh Congress. The session has been marked by exceptional business activity, with many questions of far-reaching general interest engaging attention. With the exception of the Cuban reciprocity bill most of the larger subjects of general legislation have been enacted as laws, or will become such before the session closes. Notable among these larger measures is the isthmian canal bill, which consummates the efforts of a half century to link together the waters of th.> Atlantic and the Pacific. Aside from its national and international importance this bill probably involved a larger sum of money than that covering any other single undertaking by the government outside of war expenditures. Among the other important general laws enacted are those repealing the war reve nue taxes, extending and making more ef fective the Chinese exclusion laws, estab lishing a tariff for goods to and from the Philippines, extending the charter of na tional banks for twenty years, establish ing a permanent census office, restricting the sa'e of oleomargarine by placing a high tax on imitation butter, providing a con sular and diplomatic service for Cuba, es tablishing an extensive system by which the government will aid in the irrigation of the arid sections of ti e west. War Taxes Abolished. The repeal of the war revenue taxes re duced taxation and is said to be the largest single reduction of taxation ever made in this country. By this step the last of the taxes imposed at the begin ning of our war with Spain was wiped out. The Philippine tariff act imposes 75 per cent of the Dingley tariff rates on articles coming from the Philippines to the United States, and also imposes on articles enter in? the Philippines from the I'nited States th? rates of duties established by the Phil ippine commission. Tne oleomargarine act results from several years of agitation. It places a tax of 10 cents a pound on sub stances colored to imitate butter. Irrigation Act. The irrigation act is of special importance to the development of the west. It creates an irrigation fund in the Treasury Depart ment, into which is to be paid the proceeds of the sales of public lands in the arid states. This fund in turn is to be used in storing water and establishing irrigation systems, the irrigated sections to be open to homesteaders, who are to be charged a proportionate share of the cost of improve ment. The Chinese exclusion law continues ex clusion "until otherwise provided by law," and also applies the exclusion "to the island territory under the jurisdiction of the United States." Of General Interest. Among the other important measures of general legislation not heretofore named, which have been finally enacted as laws are the following: To prevent the sale of firearms, opium and intoxicating liquors to- the natives of certain of the Pacific islands; to promote the efficiency of the revenue cutter service and to provide for the retirement of its officers; to refund the duties paid in Porto Rico on articles imported from the United States during the military occupation; ap propriating J2uo,?W0 for the relief of the volcano sufferers of Martinique; authoriz ing the erection of Y. M. C. A. buildings on United States military reservations; regu lating the introduction of eggs of game birds for purpose of propagation; providing for the protection of game in Alaska, par ticularly the large game such as moose, carilK>u, etc.; extending an invitation to the French government to participate in the unveiling in Washington of the statue of Marshal de Rochambeau; refunding the amount of legacy tax paid by charitable, benevolent and eleemosynary institutions. Anti-Anarchy Legislation. Aside from these important laws are a number of other measures of general im portance which have passed one or both houses, but have not progressed to the final stage. These include the anti-anarchy legislation, which grew out of the assasi nation of President McKlnley. Bills re stricting anarchy and throwing safeguards about the President have passed both branches of Congress, but it has been im possible to reach an agreement in confer ence so that the subject goes over until next December. A bill giving to Arizona, N.-w Mexico and Oklahoma, known as the omnibus statehood bill, passed the House and the Senate has determined to take up the matter early in the next session. The ship subsidy bill received early at tention in the Senate, but the end of the session has come without the measure being reported to the House. As it passed the Senate the bill grants graded subsidies to steam and sailing vessels of American build. In the House it has been deemed de sirable to let the subject go over until the short session, when it is expected that a bill on the subject will be reported and urgeu to passage. ... , The bill creating the Appalachian forest reserve, including a vast tract in the Ap palachian mountain section of the south, has received favorable attention in both houses but hits gone over for final adjust ment of differences until next December. Another bill passed by the Senate and like ly to become a law, changes the marine hospital service to a national health bu reau and gives the bureau larger powers and facilities for co-operating with the .state health authorities in quarantine and health altairs. ? Trans-Pacific Cable. The bill to establish a cable between the United States, Hawaii and the Philippines was retired by defeat in the House of Rep resentatives. Several other measures have advanced to a certain stage and have there halted without much prospect for further advancement. These include the bill for the election of United States senators by direct vote of the people. It passed the House by practically a unanimous vote, but in the Senate has received little attention and is not likely to pass. The House passed a bill relating to the immigration laws, codifying and amending these laws and making some important Changes. It has been reported to the Sen ate but there is not much prospect of its passage at this session. The bill defining the meaning of conspiracy in injunction cases passed the House of Representatives, but has not made much progress in the Senate. Department of Commerce. On the other hand, the Senate passed an important measure creating a department of commerce, to be presided over by a cabinet officer, but it made no progress in the House, not having been reported from the committee on commerce. Another bill of Interest to the commercial world is the pure food measure, which was drafted by the pure food congress., and, after extended hearings, was reported from the House committee on commerce, but not passed. The Fowler bill probably was the most important financial measure which has been brought before Congress. After consider able public discussion and several confer ences by the members of the House, it has gone over for consideration next December. Another financial measure, known as the Hill bill, providing for the coinage of sub sidiary silver and for the retirement of the present standard silver dollar, has passed the House, but has not been acted on in the Senate. The Appropriations. The amount of appropriations for the ses sions will run unusually high, owing in part to the amount required to build the isthmian canal. When Mr. Cannon sub mitted a general estimate of appropriations a few weeks ago he made the total up to that time J?>1.445,000. Since then the canal bill has passed, carrying a present appro priation of J40.000.000 for the franchise, and enough more for the rights of Colombia and for beginning the work to carry the total up to 150,000,000.

This store's history has been a clean record of triumphs, fit's a record of deeds dome and promises ffo|filj|ed?and that's what has made it the store it is today. There was good reason for our claim for patronage the first day the doors opened for business ?there's proportionately more reason for patronage today, and there'll be still mere when we're able to tpsfit down those barricades and throw open the new addition to our building. ~ Our ambition is plain. It's to give you the best store of its kind in its time?and as we see possible improvements, to make them?to always push forward and keep a safe lead over competition, depending on our own abilities to see into the future of Parker=Bridget Clottiin for warm weather wear. Why shouldn't it be possible to weave as light a fabric as the warm weather season demands? It's an old enough need and has been thoroughly canvassed by men who have the genius to solve such problems. There's every degree of lightness represented in the fabrics of which these two-piece suits arc made. It all depends on you to say just how light and airy a fabric you want. Wool crashes, light serges, homespuns, and flannels?both striped and plain white?in the two piece suits at $8 to $20. And then crash linens at $5? German striped linen suits at $6?Silk and Linen Suits at $10, and the Genuine Calcutta Seersucker Suits at $15 Words tell but half that sight and examination will tell you about these suits. We tell you they're better than any other such suits ever were?but how much more convincing it is when you see the suits. We tell you there's a cut that gives them a grace and beauty beyond what's usual?you fully realize that when you try on the suits. We'd rather have it that way?for when you're led to expect less than you after ward get, how much greater is the pleasure. D) Aj A Positive Clearance of Ladies' Suits, Shirt Waists, Corsets, Hosiery and Umiderinniiuislninis. It's the wind-up of these stocks and we have made the most decided reductions in order to effect a quick and complete clear ance. Every garment is a representative one, possessing merit of the highest order. There's something original in cut, finish and trimming that makes the suits and skirts appeal to the best taste of discriminating women. Even the Shirt Waist and Under Muslins?goods that do not allow a maker great latitude?are different, with a difference that means superiority?While the Corsets and Hosiery represent the best we can buy in their lines.

Mr. Cannon's estimate also omitted contracts for future expenditure included In the om nibus public building, the omnibus claims and various other bills, aggregating a large amount. This will carry the total for the session figuring in these future amounts al most, if not quite, up to the billion dollar mark. The appropriation bills have con tained little general legislation, being con fined chiefly to the regular needs of the va rious branches of the government. The naval bill, provides for an addition of two armored cruisors, two battleships and two gunboats to the navy. There have been several investigations during the session which have attracted much attention. An investigation of condi tions in the Philippines, conducted by the Philippine committee of the Senate, has led to tne examination of many witnesses high in the conduct of civil and military affairs in the islands. Another Senate Inquiry has related to the condition of affaira in Cuba, especially as to sugar. In the House sen sational charges made in connection with the purchase of the Danish West Indian islands led to an investigation which dis closed the groundless nature of the charges. REACHES VIENNA FIRST. May Be Disqualified for Ignoring Rac ing Regulations. A dispatch from Vienna yesterday says'. Marcel Renault was first over the line In the Paris-Vienna automobile race. He cov ered the distance from Paris to Vienna in fifteen hours and twenty-two minutes, at an average speed of eighty-two kilometers (about fifty-one miles) an hour. Zborosky was second. Maurice Farman third, Raras fourth. Edmond fifth and Hemery sixth. Haron de Forest, who was seventh, was disqualified on account of an accident to his motor car. S. F. Edge, an Englishman, was the twentieth to arrive. He denies reports c'rculated to the effect that he was disqualified, and cites as proof that he was declared winner of the James Gordon Hennett cup. Three of the contestants claim to have won. Renault passed the winning point precisely at 2 o'clock. He was disqualified, however, for having failed to stop at the control station at Florisdorf, a suburb of Vienna, across the Danube, where the final racing time was to be taken. Instead he dashed madly through the crowd of of ficials and timekeepers, and entered Vienna at full speed, scattering vehicles and pe destrians in all directions, and arriving at the Prater In eighteen minutes instead or in the prescribed minimum of forty-five minutes from Florisdorf. Zborosky, although he arrived second. Is believed to be too heavily handicapped by his previous day's performances to win first place. It Is expected that Maurice Farman will attain the coveted honor, his brother Henry coming second. The decision will probably be delayed three days, owing to the complicated calculations arising from the speed restrictions imposed uoon the contestants in Switzerland and else where along the route. THE NAVAL BILL. One Point Still in Controversy?Other Action by the House. After the conference report on the Dis trict appropriation bill was adopted in the House Saturday afternoon, the conference report on the naval bill was called up and also adopted. There is still one point in controversy on this measure, the building of ships in government yards. The House is contending that one battle ship, one armor ed cruiser and one gunboat shall be built In government yards, while the Senate dis agreed to this provision. Mr. Foss moved to recede and concur in the Senate amendment with an amendment requiring that the Secretary of the Navy should build at least one ship In a govern ment yard, and provided further that the Secretary of the Navy should have authori ty if he did not obtain reasonable bids to have all the ships .'built in government yards. Mr. Foss'Told'the House that the conferees found thnt the Senate absolutely declined to accent' the- Wcuse provision in its original form;'!|?ut'he declared that the amendment he eyfferad contained substan tially the same 'provision except that the Secretary was onaly required to build one ship in the government yard. Mr. W. W. Kitchin (N. C.) urged the House to stand toy Hi original action and insist that a battle sJj>P. a cruiser and a gunboat should lie built in government yards. If the Amendment prevailed, he said, the Secretary of the Navy would build only a gunboat at a government yard. Mr. Foss' motion was lost?81 to 97. The House then further lftSlsted upon Its dis agreement to tlife Seriate amendment to strike out the provision, and the bill was sent back to confer^ncc. Messrs. Foss (HI.), Tayler (Ohio.) and Meyer (La.) were appointed conferees. The conference report on the bill to prevent false branding of foods was adopted. A special rule was adopted to make the Dick militia bill a con tinuing order, not to interfere with con ference reports. A. resolution was adopted to grant the commissioner from Porto Rico the privilege of the floor of the House. The conference report upon the bill to confirm the Chocktaw and Chickasaw agreement was adopted. Bills were passed to extend for one year the time in which to make final proof In desert land entries in the Yakima reservation. Washington: to ap point George H.
