WASHINGTON, Sept. 8.?The first
session of the Sixty Fourth Congress
which adjourned today was concerned
chiefly with national defenses.
When the gavel fell Congress had!
directed reorganization and reequip-,
ment of tho Army and Navy for defense
of the country at the unprecedented
cost of 8655,000.000 with authorizations
that will Increase the total
in tliree yeare to nearly 8800,000,000.
With all other expenditures, appropriationsw
ere brought to the grand
total of 81,637,583,682, the greatest aggregate
In the country's history and
exceeding that for the last fiscal year
by more than half a billion dollars.
Expenditures necessitated by preparedness
and the calling into action
of military forces to meet the Mexican
emergency demanded revenue legislation
in the closing days of the session.
Congresn responded by doubling the
normal tax on incomes, creating an inheritance
tax, munitions tax and miscellaneous
excise taxes to raise 8205,000,000
and by directing sale of 8130,000,000

enlarged the system of self-govera/i
ment In the Phllllppines and enacted'

foreign complications from the European
war and Imminence at one time
of a diplomatic break with Germany;
Interference with American malls and
commerce, invasion of American soil
and killing of Americans by Mexican

with Mexico.
