with tho necessity for new quarters.
No mention was made of the resolu

An emergency appropriation resolution
was sent to the President yesterday
evening by Congress to provide for the
temporary bankruptcy In which the
Government again finds Itself ot the
threshold of ho second month of tho
new fiscal year.
It carried forward the appropriations
as tbey were in Juno and July for
another "half month." By August 16,
It is expected, the annual appropria
tion bills will have been passed. The
resolution was attacked in tho Senate
becauso It made no provision for the
Pensions authorized oy law recently,
n no Instance does It nrnvldn for esti
mates that were not on the appropria
tion rolls In June last.
Tho fact that nil lh hlo- nnnrnnrin-
tlon bills are still ponding, and that
tho work of development and exten
sion in all the departments Is at a
standstill, has caused many pleas for
more "speed" on Capitol hill. The
sundry civil bill nnnRed the Ronatn lost
Wednesday, but a conference on It has
not yet been called.
Although the postofflce appropriations
bill waB before the Senate yesterday,
but little progress was mode on It. The
debate was confined to the new features
ot the measure regulating second-class
privileges for publications of fraternal
and scientific societies.
Senator McCumber presented a reso
lution to meet the pension emergency
Just beforo adjournment. It authorizes
the appropriation of $30,000,000, or aB
much of that sum as may be necessary,
to meet any deficit on claims which may
be due or payable on or before Aug
ust 4.
Charges were made by members of
each party that the other was responsi
ble for delaying the appropriation bills.
Senator Warren said the Democrats of
the House had failed to act on many of
the bills. Senator Stone charged that
tho Republicans, on tho other hand,
were holding up the annual pension ap
propriation bills.
