What Congress Is Doing
The Senate.
The Senate on Thursday will
begin consideration of the perma
nent tariff bill, aa reported to It by
the flnanoe committee. In all
probability It will Require In tha
neighborhood of three montha to
dispose of title bill In the Senate.
Democratlo membera of tha finance
committee are at present study
ing the bill preparatory to filing
a minority report on the measure
with the Senate.
Tomorrow, and. In fact, during
the next two or three days, the
Senate Is expected to give time to
the consideration of bills on the
calendar. The unfinished business
of the Senate Is a resolution In
troduced by Senator Edge of New
Jersey creating, a committee to
Investigate existing conditions of
Industry and commerce in the
United States for the purpose of
recommending to Congress legis
lation defining the rights and limi
tations of co-operative organlsa
tlona as distinguished from Illicit
combinations In restraint of trade.
This resolution Is the opening on
the part of Industry to obtain. If
possible, somewhat almllar righta
to those accorded agriculturists
when the co-operative marketing bill
wjb put through.
The appropriations committee Is
expected to report to the Senate
within the next day or two the
jWlce and State appropriation
bill, and that measure will be giv
en tho right of way as soon as
It gets to the Senate.
The 8enate finance committee Is
expected to get together this
week, probably Wednesday, to
consider the soldiers' bonua bill.
The committee will decide whether
the bill ahall be reported out as
soon as poaalble and given an op
portunity to be disposed of before
the tariff bill is paaaed, or shall
be held up until the tariff bill haa
paaaed. Chairman MoCumber fa
vors tlie former plan, but there are
some members of the committee
who would be glad to see the
measure postponed?and poet
poned indefinitely. The probabil
ities are. however, that action on
the measure will be prompt and
favorable.
The Senate accomplished lta full
ahare of leglalative work during
the last week. It passed the agri
culture appropriation bill and the
117,000,000 hospitalisation bill al
ready passed by the House, the
House joint resolution extending
the life of the present S per oent
Immigration law and the District
of Columbia rent act extension bill.
The last measure went through by
a vote of S< to 17, after being
amended so aa to exclude from the '
Jurisdiction of the Rent Commlaalon
buainess properties. It Is before
the House District committee.
A third resolution, offered by
(Senator Caraway of Arkansas,
democrat, seeking Information
from the President regarding dis
missed employes of the bureau of
engraving and printing, waa re
ferred by the republican majority
to the olvil service committee. The
democrats charged this waa done
to kill the resolution.
The conferees on the District ap
propriation bill made "progress^'
and will meet again tomorrow. It
may require anotiwr weak. It Is
said, to complete work on tne bill.

The House.
This week will be devoted In the
House to consideration of Navy
legislation. Tomorrow Is unanl
mous-conaent day, and Chairman
Langley expects to set up his res
olution authorising the transfer of
land along the old J/unes creek
canal to the Jurisdiction of the
Joint oommlttee on.the library for
extension and development of the
National Botanic (harden. House
Leader Mondell, however, says
that the consideration of the
naval appropriation bill will be
continued.
The program of the House lead
er calls for consideration of the
legislative bill from the naval af
fairs committee, following the ap
propriation bill, with Representa
tive Thomas Butler of Pennsyl
vania In charge of the measure.
The naval appropriation bill for
the fiscal year 1823 was before the
House all during the last week,
and has been the occasion of the
most bitter fight for some time.
The principal bone of contention
has been regarding the size of the
Navy personnel. The big Navy
men won the first round In the
committed, of the whole on a vote
by tellers late yesterday, which
called for an enlisted personnel of
88,000.
The annual appropriation bill
for the State, and Justice Depart
ments was passed by the Huuse
last Monday and sent to the Sen
ate. carrying approximately 126.
tlWO.OOO.
The House refused to allow the
use of federal funds for the prose
cution of labor unions or farmers'
co-operative organizations under
anti-trust laws. .
Higher pay for District school
teachera and the demands of the
organised business men of the na
tional capital for daylight saving
are two subjects on which hear
ings have been promised for Wed
nesday next before the House Dis
trict committee.
The extension or l?th street
through the Walter Reed Hospital
grounds and the opening up of a
large area of suburban territory
for small residences was practi
cally assured when the House Dis
trict committee made a personal
inspection of the proposed devel
opment last Wednesday. ?
Decision to favorably report a
bill authorising the Commissioners
to widen Woodley road and Cathe
dral avenue a distance of ten feet
so as to provide a sidewalk, but
refusing to grant the condemna
tion of a strip forty feet wide
along the property of the St Al
bans Episcopal Cathedral property,
was reached by the House Dis
trict committee on Wednesday
after a personal inspection of the
street.
Hearings have been promised
before the House District commit
tee on the bill, which has already
passed the Senate, and which would
give the District Commissioners
authority to allow the extension of
railroad tracks within Industrial
zones. It is claimed that this au
thority would eventually result In
tressels and coal yards being built
all along North Capitol street from
New York avenue to the Union
station. Sibley Hospital. St. Alo
yslus Church, and the St. Aloysius
schools, and other religious and
humanitarian institutions are pro
testing.
Conferences between representa
tives of the House and Senate on
the District appropriation bill for
the fiscal year beginning July 1
next, have resulted In tentative
agreements on many points in dis
pute,?but it will be about a week
before any report Is made. The de
lay Is caused largely by trouble
In writing a substitute for the
Jones amendment which proposes
to entirely change the fiscal rela
tions between the federal and Dis
trict governments.

Dill nave decided to place the
Home for Feeble Minded on the
