END OF CONGRESS
The
Most Important Session
Since the War
i I - 1
Exciting Incidents and Vital Legis
latmt Adontcd Unanimity
on War Measures
The adjournment Saturday of the
lmy iiitn congress marksTthelclose
of the first war congress liia quar
ter of a centu ry - tj
It began with a widespread dam 1
or for sympathetic action
Cuba but there apparently was
then no expectation of an Srmed
conflict But when the tread of
events culminated the enfergency
was quickly met and necessary
legislation enacted The first few
but significant measures Suddenly
needed were framed and- made
law but with the issue made clear
there was a flood of bills and reso
lutions that fairly submerged the
two branches of congress
y Hawaiian annexation Spain and
Cuba war appropriations and war
revenue legislation organization of
the vast volunteer army and expan
sion of the navy a new bankruptcy
law all these were features of the
session Notable speeches and
dramatic scenes over foreign issues
were comparatively frequent in
both legislative chambers Urgent
deficiency bills carrying millions
of dollars were rushed through
with far less delay than marked
the course of an ordinary measure
of little importance
The total appropriations footed
almost 900000000 and upwards
of 350000000 was purely for war
purposes It was the largest ag
gregate of any session since the
civil war and the general deficien
cy was the largest separate meas
ure since the 750000000 single ap
propriation of 1863 Thenaval ap
propriation bill provided for three
new battleships four monitors six
teen torpedo boat destroyers twelve
torpedo boats and one gunboat
The urgent deficiency bills all car
ried provisions for aggressive work
in the prosecution of the war The
general deficiency bill enacted in
thelast days carried a provision
forefunding the indebtedness of
the Central and Western Pacific
railroads to the government
Thcfirst real war legislation was
when congress placed without lim
itations 50000000 in the presi
dents hands as an emergency fund
for national defenhe Party lines
were swept away and both houses
unanimously voted confidence in
the administration Soon after
ward a bill reimbursing the survi
vors of the Maine disaster for their
losses not to exceed a years pay
with a similar amount to those who
perished became a law
On April 11 the president in a
message left the Cuban6 resolution
in the hands of congress Resolu
tions were soon enacted and be
came a law April 19 declaring that
thepeople of Cuba ought to be and
are free and independent and de
manding that Spain relinquish its
authority and withdraw its land
and naval forces from Cuba and
Cuban waters and directing the
useof our land and naval forces to
enforce the resolutions
The declaration of war was pass
ed by congress on April 25 Three
days before the declaration of var
President McKinley had approved
the volunteer act Under it all the
soldiers massed against Spain mus
tered in the entire volunteer army
liave been raised embracing 125
0Q0 men under the first and 75000
under the second call A month
previous legislation haa been en
acted recognizing the line of the
army effecting the three battalion
war formations
On the feature of the session was
the enactment of the war revenue
law Its framers expect it to pro
duce 150000000
Other revenue legislation includ
ed a bill enlarging in favor -of im
porters the provision as to the dis
position of abandoned merchandise
and extending the outage allow
ance on distilled spiii Lh in bonds
from four to six years
Late in the session a general
bankruptcy law was enacted pro
viding lor voluntary and involun
tary bankruptcy
