Canal Bill One of the Important Meas ures of the Session—Repeal of War Revenue. Other Measures of Unusual Importance Passed at the Session—Washing ton News. This has been an important session of congress and notable among these larger measures is the isthmian canal bill, which consummates the efforts of a half century to link together the waters of the Atlantic atal the Pacific. Aside from .-its national and interna tional importance, this bill probably •involves a larger sum of money than that covering any other single under taking by the government outside of war expenditures. The Philippine civ il government bill is another measure of far-reaching importance, extending to our remote Pacific possessions a system of internal civil government, together with coinage, currency, bank ing corporation, timber, and home stead laws. Among the other impor tant general laws enacted are those repealing the war l-evetnue taxes ex tending and making more effective the Chinese exclusion laws establishing a tariff for goods to and from the Phil ippines extending the charter of na tional banks for 20 years establishing a permanent census office restricting the sale of oleomargarine by placing a high tax on imitation butter pro viding a consular and diplomatic serv ice for Cuba establishing an extensive system by which the government will aid in the irrigation of the arid sec tions of the west. The repeal of the war revenue taxes reduced taxation $73,250,000, and is said to" be the largest single reduction of taxation ever made in this country. By this step the last of the taxes im posed at the beginning of our war with Spain was wiped out. The Philippine tariff act imposes 75 per cent of the Dingle'y tariff rates on articles coming from the Philippines to the United States, and also imposes on articles entering the Philippines from the United States the rates of duties es tablished by the Philippine commis sion. The oleomargarine act results from several years of agitation. It places a tax of ten cents a pound on substances colored to immitate butter. The irrigation act is of special im portance to the development of the west. It creates an irrigation fund in. the treasury department, into which is to be paid the proceeds of the sales of public lands in the arid states. This fund in .turn is to be used in storing water and establishing irrigation sys tems, the irrigated sections to be open to homesteaders, who are to be charg ed a proportionate share of the cost of the' improvement. The Chinese exclusion law continues exclusion "until otherwise provided by law," and also applies the exclusion "to the island territory under the ju risdiction of the United States.'' Aside from these important laws there are a number of other measures of general importance which have passed one or both houses, but have not progressed to the final stage. These include the anti-anarchy legis lation, which grew "out of the assassi nation. of President MoKinley. Bills restricting anarchy and throwing "safe guards about the president have pass ed both branches of congress, but it has been impossible to reqch an agree ment in conference, so that the subject goes over until next December. A bill giving statehood to Arizona New Mexico and Oklahoma, knowi^ as the Omnibus statehood bill, pafcsed the house and the senate has determined to tajce up the matter early in the next session. The ship subsidy bill secured early attention in the senate, but the end of the session has come without the measure being reported to the house. As it passed the senate the till grants graded subsidies to steam and sailing vessels of American build. In the house it has been deemed desirable tp |et th« subject go over until the short session, when, it is expected that a bill on the subject wiil he reported' nnd yv&d to passage, j-' f. Several other measures, have ad vanced to a certain stage and have then Raited without much prospect for farther advancement. These include the bill tor the election of TJntted States senators by direct vote of the 'M- tically a unanimous vote, but in the senate has received little attention and is not likely to pass. The house passed a bill relating to the immigration laws, corliying and amending these laws relating to im portant changes. It lias been reported to the senate, but there is not much prospect of its passage at this session. The bill defining the meaning of con^ spiracy in injunction cases passed the house of representatives, but lias not. made much progress in the senate. On the other hand the senate passed an important measure creating a depart ment of commerce, to be presided over by a cabinet officer, but it has made no progress in the house, not having been reported from the committee on commerce. Another bill of interest to the com mercial world is the pure food meas ure which was. drafted by the Pure Pood congress, and after extended hearings was reported from the house committee on commerce but not pass ed. The Fowlfer bill probably was the most important financial measure which has been brought before con gress. After considerable public dis cussion -and There have been several investiga tions during the session, which have attracted much attention. An investi gation of conditions in the Philippines.' conducted by the Philippine committee of the senatee, has led to the examina tion of many witnesses high in the •conduct of civil and military affairs in the islands. Another senate inquiry has .related to the condition of affairs in Cuba, especially as to sugar. In the house, sensational charges made in connection with the purchase of the Danish West Indian islands led to an investigation which disclosed the groundless nature of the charges. MRS. ALLEN ENTERTAINS. Mrs. E. F. Allen entertained at her residence on Fourth street Thursday afternoon In honti*- of her sisters.

BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA, SATURDAY, JULY 5. 1902. sevenal .conferences by the members of the house, it has gone over for consideration next December. Another financial measure, known as the Hill bill, providing for the coinage of subsidary silver and for the retire ment of the present standard silver dollar, has passed the house, but has not been acted on in the senate. The amount of appropriations for the session will run unusually high, owing in part to the amount required to build the isthmian canal. When Mr. Cannon submitted a general esti mate of appropriations a few weeks ago, lie made the total up to that time $091,445,000. Sine then the canal "bill has passed, carrying a ipresent appro priation of .$40,000,000 for the fran chise. and enough more for the rights o£ Colombia and for beginning the work to carry the total up to $."0,000. 000. The entire cost of the undertak ing is approximately §184,000,000. Mr. Cannon's estimate also omitted con tracts for future expenditure included in the Omnibus public building, the Omnibus claims and various other bills, aggregating a large amount. This will carry tihe total for the session, figuring in these future amounts, al most, if not quite, up to the billion dollar mark. The appropriation bills have contained little general legisla tion, being confined .chiefly to the reg ular needs of the various branches of the government.

Large Crowd From Bismarck Attends the Celebration of the Day at Wilton. Washburn Has a Fine Celebration, Largely Attended From Surround ing Country. Bismarck passed the Fourth of July quietly—very quietly. There was no general celebration in the city. Save for the occasional pop of a fire crack er, the day passed uneventfully. There were decorations of flags about the city in honor of the occasion. The ma jority of the population of the city at tended the celebrations at Wilton and Washburn. Special trains of the Washburn road took several hundred persons north, to celebrate with the smaller towns. At Wilton there was a large crowd, and the city was en fete. Teams from all farts of the surrounding country poured into the village, and covered the prairies about the city for miles. Aside from these, there was a 'transient population of several hundred from Bismarck. Most of the celebrants re mained until the last rocket had been exploded and returned to the city about 1 o'clock this morning. The ball game between Wilton and Bismarck resulted in an easy vk'ory for Bismarck, the score being IS to 3 when tilie counting stopped. Aside from the ball game there were races, gun club shooting, and a bow ery dance in the evening, all of which contributed to the general amuse ment. The Bismarck band and or chestra furnished -excellent music for the Wiltonites. and they did the hon ors well during the day and evening. There was excellent weather for the celebration at Wilton, which began with the early morning. About l.iiOO hundred people were present in all. the train from Bismarck bringing a large number, estimate dat 500 to 700. In the forenoon the band gave a con cert, and were then taken to the gun club, grounds, where the shoot -tfas pulled off. Bismarck sportsmen suc ceeded in bringing away a good share of the money. Henry Richolt took the greater share of the money, winning about $3(5 in prices, and that with a "bum lamp." Had he had two good eyes he would have taken the whole purse. Henry Newton took second money, winning over $20 and B. E. Jones carried away about $20 in prize money. Other shots came in for les ser amounts. Dinner was served by Landlord Book waiter and ihis hotel was taxed to its capacity. In the afternoon a pro gram of races was pulled off, Austin Logan. W. P. Macomber and other horsemen seeing to the success of the program. The ball game was also a feature in the afternoon. After sup per there was a band concert in front of the hotel, and the Philippine pano rama added to 'the list of amusements for the evening. The bowery dance was also well attended. A display of fireworks closed the day's celebration. Everyone who attended found a full share of enjoyment and Wilton has reason to be proud of its fii-st general celebration. Great credit is due to Mayor Macomber. Jim Wakeman, Landlord Bookwalier, Fred Oeltjen. Doc Buttea-field, Simon Jahr and the others who made the affair a success. At Washburn another fine celebra tion was had. From 1.000 to 1,500 people attended tihe celebration there. Attorney Gregory made an eloquent address, and there was a good program of races. One accident is reported, a stranger who was riding in one of the races being seriously injured. His horse ran into a woven wire fence and turned a complete somersault with his rider beneath him. Tihe man was knocked senseless, and had his shoul der dislocated, his arm broken at the elbow and suffered serious internal in juries. it was not believed yesterday that he could recover. A ball game was pulled off between Washburn and Turtle Lake, which was won by Washburn by a score of 7 to 5. The game was a first rate article of ball. "v Mr. Gregory aays that he never saw a celebration where there was such good ordea* maintained. There was no drunkenness, and good nature and good feeliBjSi $e leatijrec! ot the celebfatiom. States Attorney McCui Joch was on the ground and saw that everything passed off smoothly. Several minor celebrations are re priced through ..the county. There were several picnics. At Menoken the good people of that vicinity cele brated. Dr. Bentley made an eloquent speech, a ball game was played be tween McKenzie and Menoken, which w!as wen by McKenzie. In the evening there was a dance, which everyone en joyed. DEATH OF MRS. SEMLING. MRS. E. E. SEMLING, WIFE OF THE WELL KNOWN BISMARCK MER CHANT PASSES AWAY EARLY SATURDAY MORNING. Mrs. E. E.
