SEPTEMBER DEMOCRATIC STEERING COMMIT TEE SUBMITS PROPOSAL TO REPUBLICAN LEADERS. WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 A plan for adjournment of congress by Septem ber 1 was worked out by senate lead ers today in a series of conferences occupying virtually the whole atten tion of senators of both parlies and transforming the opening day of de bate on tin- government ship chase bill, which stirred up a bitter fight when it was pressed two years! ago, in a spiritless discussion among the corporal's guard of members who remained in their places in the chain-j ber. As a result of the day's maneuvers, the democratic steering committee submitted to the republican leaders in writing a proposal that no important legislation he taken up at this bps sion except the shipping, revenue, em plovers' liability and appropriation f ills, and conference reports, with a view to adjournment by the end of the present month. Mem Iters of the republican steering committee received the proposal fa rorably. Definite reply was deferred nntll it can he submitted to a repub-1 lican conference called to meet to morrow by Senator OalMnger, hut it seemed assured that the limited leg islative program suggested by the democrats would he agreed to. Such a program would eliminate i ccnsidoration at tips session of the corrupt practice bill to enlarge the! interstate commerce association. The j corrupt practice measure is one of those whose passage before adjourn mr-nt is earnestly desired by President i Wilson, but. senate leaders believe to night he would not insist. Republican senators will discuss the , shipping bill for several days, hilt no j determined fight w ill be conducted i and democrats who revolted against I the measure two years ago have ] united with their colleagues in its support. A vote probably will be reached Monday or Tuesday. Figures in Immigration Fight Oil Ellis Island.! C7 A(0»V.£ C7 A(0»V.£ Representative William S.
