Review of the Work Actually Ac complished by THE NATION'S LAW-MAKERS Ths House Passed 625 Bills and 200 of That Number FAILED OF PASSAGE IN The Penate-Abeet the Sam Number -Were Pea. ad by the Senate end De feated In tk Hooae. Wabihnotox, March 4 The allrer and tariff question, the anti-option hill and the reduction of appropriation! were tlia leading topics of conversation hy the Fifty-second congress, which ex pired by constitutional limitation at 19 o'clock noon Saturday. Secondary only In Importance to these matter were measures re' atlnir to we worm a ir, equipment of railroads with automatie carcouplors, national quarantine and immigration, Bering sea and Hawaiian annexation. Nothing of an affirmative nature ex cept to prevent two Items in the Mc Kinlcy bill taking effoct was actually accomplished solar as respects suvor, the tariff or anti-options, the action taken on each of these questions in one branch of congress being negatived by the action or non-ai tion of the other brancli. The result of the ag tatlon of the necessity for a retrenchment of ex Awit?iit.n 1 nnf. nnnnrent In anv con siderable chungo in the aggregate ap propriations carried by the national bupply bills, for they amount to about as much as in the Fifty-first congress, laws cn the rfatcte books preventing borne large reductions which otherwise would have l een made, while the de crease which it was possible to euoci was offset by increased appropriations for pensions and rivers and harbora The condition of the public treasury, however, though it did not result In the Flftyecond congress getting below the billion dollar limit, undoubtedly In fluenced legislation to a considerable extent and prevented tho authorization . ju j .... of nmny proposca new expenauun:. improvement of the public service for public build ings, for payment of claims and for other purposes. A notable in stance of the operation of this influence is seen In the fuct that not a single pub Ho building bill passed the house and It nlv Viir nuttinir a nAmber of them on tho sundry civil appropriation bill that any authorizations whatever for public buildings were secured. Tho silver question was kept steadily before the attention of congress by the altcrnn'tO efforts of the advocate of free coinage and of the repeal of the Sher man law. The coinage committee in the house of the first session reported a free silver bill, which after an exciting dobate was aaved from defeat by the casting vote of the speaker, but was a - ..... . a m. ih. afterward Mlbusterea 10 ueaiu, mo friends of the bill falling to secure sig natures of a majority of the democrats to a petition asking for a cloture rule In its behalf. The senate then passed a free coinage bill, but when the free allver men re sewed their fight In the house they were outnumbered by fourteen votes, and of course failed. The anti-silver men met a similar fate in their efforts to secure a repeal of the present law, the senate refusing by a decisive vote to consider It, and ine nouse Killing uu Andrew Cate bill by declining to vote ho as to give Its friends the parliamen tary right to move cloture on It, with out which It conccdedly could never be forced to a vote in the closing hours of congress. On the tariff the dominant party In the houso adopted a policy of attacking the McKlnloy bill in dctnll largely for .... a . I iL. political reasons ana paruy ior vu re on that in view of the political com plexion of the senate it was practically out of the question to pass a general tariff revision bill through the senate while special measures might stand some show of passing. The result was . . . - the enactment into law oi mo continuing block tin on the fire list and fine linen at 85 per cent ad valorem. Under the McKlnley bill large duties were to take effect on these items in the near future. Other separate bills were passed through the house, only to be pigeon holed In the senate as follows: Free wool and reduction of duties on woolen manufactures; free cotton bag ging machinery, free binding twine, free silver Iesd ores, where the value (not the weight) of the silver exceeds that of tho lead in any Importation, free tin plate, terno piave auu uBBm. tin and the limitation to 1100 of the amount of the personal baggage re turning touriaU may bring into the United State. Tb anti-options bill passed both houses but was killed by the refusal of the house to suspend the rales and agree by a two-thirds vote to the amend ments put on the bill by the senate. The pur food bill, the running mate of the anti-options bill, passed th senate but was never a mo to get conaiuerauuu in the house. World's fair legislation comprised the grant of 12,500,000 in souvenir half dol lars in aid of the fair, th closing of It gates on Sunday, th appropriation of various amount for different fair pur poses and the passing of sundry act of . anaul nature and minor imnortanc. The automatie car coupler bill, shorn of Its drastic- features, waa enacted Into law, as was also a national quarantine bill Increasing th powers of the ma rine hospital service to meet the threat ened dangers from cholera and an im migration law imposing additional re strictions on immigration, but not sus pending In entirely. Th senate averted the bill over th Bering sea fisheries by ratifying a treaty of arbitration. It also ratified extradition treaties with Russia and other countries, but still has before it a treaty of annexation of the Hawaiian Inland. The opening of the CUerokeo outlet waa provided for th Indian bill under a clause appropriat ing $8,295,000 for it purchase from th Indians, 1295,000 to be paid in cash, and 8,000,000 in five equal annual Install ments. The house passed 685 bills, of whlcn 800 failed passage in the senate and in the neighborhood of 025 bills were passed by the senate which failed in the house. Three bills were vetoed by the presl- dent-vis: To refer the McGarrahan claim to th court of olalras (a second McGarrahan bill failing of action in the house); to amend the court of ap .1. ami In relation to marshals in the United States court in Alabama, This i...

But because of the peculiar condition of affairs so far aa the composition of tho senate Itself is concerned, with tho doubtful standing of the senators who tniH .nnnlntmnnta from the governors of their states instead of credentials of election by the legislatures, and fur ther because of the announced Inten tion of Senator Stewart, of Nevada, to precipitate a silver discussion by the In troduction of a resolution of inquiry di rected to tho new secretary of the treas ury it may be that this special session will assume a degree of importance and excite such popular interest as has never before been witnessed In such OIL IN RUSSIA AND cases. It is probable that the senators on both side of the chamber will hold caucuses to determine upon lines of party policy and to doclde what shall be done In respect to tho organization of the committees and of the numerous force of senatorial employes. As there ii no lack of candidates for the highly desirable places within the disposition of the majority of the senate In both th. onmmlttea assignments and the ap pointments pertaining to tho offices of the secretary of the senate and the ser-gcant-at-arms some lively contests may be expected.
