There was but one sentiment expressed, and that was that adjournment ought not to be taken until the Cuban measure w-is finally disposd of, or c-ttra session lapsed into the regular session. With this view of the case, the tentative programme of the House will be to ad journ for ihrte da9 at a time. There is some criticism expresced bv House leaders regardlrg the published programme of the Senate to take a vote on the Cuban bill on December 16 and ad journ the present session within a few days. Such action is declared to be a reflection on the President, who assembled Congress In extra session and emphasised the neces sity of immediate action on the Cuban measure. Should the Senate transmit to the House a resolution for adlournment of the special session, the present disposi tion of that body will be to Ignore the resolution on the ground that there U not a Quorum present to consider it.
