THE WORK OF CONGKESS
| WHAT HAS BEEN DONE DUBING
Exceptional Business Activity?Many
Questions of General Interest En
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
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.
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
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
Of General Interest.
Among the other important measures of
general legislation not heretofore named,
which have been finally enacted as laws are
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.
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
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
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 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. The entire cost of the un

dertaking is approximately $184,<MX),0<>0. 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
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
