The financial act has made important changes In the laws relatir.g to the parity of no tals, the bonded indebtedness, na tional banks and the security of the treas ury by a gold reserve. The Nicaraguan canal bill has passed the house and is on the calendar of the senate ready for at tention when congress rteonvei.es. The antl-tru-t bill Is similarly advanced. The Jintl-trust constitutional amendment has a cl f at recorded against it. The l'acltie cable measure has passed the senate and la uwaiting final action in the hous.

Trentlea Acted I'pon, The senate In executive session has tieing occupied to a considerable extent with important treaties. Of these the treaties with (Jreat Hritaln ami tiermany closing the tripartite government in Farnoa and awarding to the United States the island of Tutuila, with its valuable harbor of l'ago-Fago, has been ratified, while the commercial reciprocity treatle with France and liritish West Indian Is lands and the Hay-I'aunccfote treaty, concerning the interoceanic canal, go over without action. The rinnnelnl Art. Of the legislation actually accomplished and now on the statute books, the finan cial act Is retarded as the chief achieve ment of the car. The noteworthy fea ture of the debate on this measure in the house was that party lines were broken to some extent, a number of democratic metnbtrs from the eastern and New F.rgland states Joining with the majority in passing it. In th.- senate also party lines wire not entirely regarded, Stnators Finds y and Caffrey voting for the rmasure and Senator Chandler against it. As it became a law by the president's signature, on March II. it makes specific tin- declaration ot the gold standard, pro vides ;i treasury reserve of JI.Vi.imi.inui, es tablishes a division of issue and redemp tion of the treasury, provides for the re (Krnptijn and reissue of interest-beat tr.g bonds of the I'nlUd States, and makes j.ew rt sulations as to national banks, tin Ir "circulation, establishment In .-m ill communities and the tax they pay. Th 'rt ill s. contains a specific declaration that Its provisions "are led intended to picilude the fu i omplishment of interna tional bimetallism." I'nrto lllcari Iteventie. 1'orto Klco 1 glslation has beer, the most fruitful theme of controversy in and out of congress during tin- session. The dis cussion brst turned on the revenue bill, lowing a duty of 13 per cent, of the Ding hy l itis on 1'orto Klco goods. The ma jority of the ways ami means committee urtriil th" constitutionality and necessity of this course, while tin- minority, reen forcod by Mr. Me C 'all. of Massachusetts, a number of the majoriuy. maintained that the con-tltution -f the Culted States ex tended to 1'orto Kb o. and that congress Was Inaugur.i ting a le w and dangerous pre c cdent by giving the lslar.il any other law than tlvat of the rest of the country. Ilx fiti met. t ran high mnh-r the spur of wide spread public attention. The d. bate in the hou-e was signalized by the division of th" majority, which for a time made th" ro-f-ilt doubtful, but the bill ultimately pased. The contest in the senate was animated but less acute, the senate ( hanging the entire scope of the nr . i-or" by mldlr.g a complete form of civil govt rnment. In this form, ralslre revenue and establishing an Island povt rnment. the nnasure became a law. S'ibse.jui ntly It was amended so as to limit Corp,, rate frimhi--. and on the presi dent's re( omiriend.itlon an act was passed appropriate g for the use of 1'orto Klco the f.'.e'.i... .Vi ((.l!et ted from i.-lai.d sourc( s since Its acquisition. Onr vr I'piilnn, Next In Important e In the accomplished Work of the session Is the ac t "to provide n gov rnmer.t for the territory of Hawaii." The debates on It In tie senate and house iiroust d little division save on mate rs of di tall. The act provides a system of gov crnm nt much like that of t rrltorb s. w 1th a governor appointed by the j, resident, a legislature of two houses, franchise rights practically the same as those of voters of the United StaUs, with the additional cjuallneatlon that a voter shall "be nble to speak, read nnl write the English or the Hawaiian language." Administrative and JtnlU lal officers are provided, and the Island is given a delegate to the house of rt pre-pf-ntatives of the I'nlted States, chosen by the people, with a right to debate in the bouse, but not a right to vote. The Philippines and Cuba have occupied much attention In the way of debate nnd the adoption of resolutions of inquiry. Th4 Fpooner bill, providlr.jr that w hen all Insur rection against the authority of the United States shall be nt an end then all military, civil and Judicial powers shall, unless oth erwise provided by congress, be carried on under the direction of the president, formed the basis of the senatorial debate on the 1'hlllpplnes. but was fruitless of action The only I glslitlon as to Cuba is of u com paratively minor character, relating to Cuban rdiipplng. Pensions. The general pension laws have been materially changed by the present con press, largely as a result of the efforts of the Grand Army of the Kopubllc, which secund the passage of a bill amending the law of June L'7. 1MJ0. so us to permit the "aggregating" of disa bilities, and changing the provision as to widows so that a widow may receive, pension when she Is "without means of support otln.r than tier dally labor, and has an actual net Income not exceeding Uo'J." etc. "Fret Iloiiies" Act. The "free homes" net has at last be come law. It provides for the patenting of homesteads on thu public lands ac ciulre 1 from the Indians on the paymeut of the usual fees and no other or further charges. This opens to free homestead ntry many millions of acres of public lands in the west, heretofore sold at stated figures pi r acre. Another measure passed of some gen eral Interest permits the secretary of agriculture to restore game birds which are becoming extinct, and provides means for the restriction of traffic in dead animals, birds, etc.. from state to state, the latter provision being In part designed to limit the destruction of song birds for the sale of thetr plumage. Oilier I.t-KUIn t Ion. Among other miscellaneous acts of Ue session are those for the preservation of the historic frigate Constitution and for extending the work of the twelfth census, fonsid table general legislation Is carried on appropriation bills. These provisions In clude the amendment to the military acad emy bill making the commanding general ot th" army a lieutenant general, and the adjutant general of Uie army a major gen eral; also the amendment to the sundry civil bill appropriating V."iUM0 for the St. Louis exposition. lioth of these bills are still pending. The naval appropriation bill adds two battleships, three armored cruis ers, three protected cruisers and five sub marine boats to the naval strength, and may include special legislation as to armor plate and a government plant. The other appropriation bills In the main carry the usual government supplies. The Alaska code bill, giving a complete civil system of laws to the territory, has passed both houses, and undoubtedly will become a law. NEW HAVEN- June 1.

The United States transport Hancock, from San Francis co April 17. arrived here Sunday morn ing with the members of the Philip pine commission. Judge Taft, speaking regarding the powers and future work of the commis sion, said: "We have full Instructions and extensive powers. The latter we shall net c-xt-rclso until wc have had ample time to acquire sullklent knowledge of the situation to en title ua to proceed to enact legislative t hanjres and reforms, preliminary to the es tablishment of a stable civil government. I'nt 11 we assume authority (Jen. MacArthur will coiitli.ue to perform the duties and ex ercise the powers formerly performed and exercise! ty (Jen.

MacArthur will continue us the exec utive head until, on our recommendation to 1 'resident Me Klnh y, It shall stem to tho president that the time has arrived for the appointini i.t of a civil executive and Vr makli.t; the military forces merely auxil iary in carrying on the civil government, to he available only in cast s ot t tm reney lor the ptippn ss-ioii of lawltss violence too formidable- to l- overcome' Ly the regular ly organized polite.

"When those now In arms fhall have laid them down, relying as they certainly can, upon the Justice, generosity and cle m ency of the I'nlted States, we shall give tlurn all a full hearing upon the policy to be pursued and the reforms to be initiated. We purpose to Inaugurate na comprehen sive a school system throughout tho Islands as circumstances will allowi I am surprised that Manila has not received news re gardlng the Spooncr Mil. a measure calculated to help us greatly In our work here."

He- said in .in inteniew: "Ws couldn't let go of th Philippines now if we wanted to.
