An event ful period In tho country'." history Is cov ered by the. work of the. Flfty-nrth Con gress which Is elrasvlng to a close. It has been a period of stirring and dramatic tie- tion, with questions of vast magnitude ' constantly engaging attention, forming an epoch alongside those other American epochs, tho Revolution and tho Civil war. 1 This Congress has declared war against a foreign foe, nnd tho treaty making branch has participated In ratifying tho treaty by which that war was terminated, it j has provided a, great volunteer army, litis ! enlarged tho regular army, and has ex- Handed tho navv to meet war omerirencIe'S I and new conditions. Tho tariff has been I revised, llrst by tho Dlngh-y law and then ! by the war revenue act: a bond Issue , known as the war loan, has been provided. . lint far-reaching' as these war mensuris I are, the Congress has had time also to enact other legislation which under or dinary circumstances would make Its ses sion memorable. This Includes tho annex ation of Hawaii; tho rejection by tho Sen ate ot the, general treaty of arbitration with dr. at Hrltaln; the enactment of a na- , Ilonal bankruptcy law; provision for tak ing the Um-UOi census; teorganlzatlon of the personnel of tho navy. To this list, may yet bo added other Important sub jects still pending, Including- tho Nicara gua canal, tho Increase of the regular army, the antl-scalplng measure, tho Hawaiian bill, and tho proposed encour agement of American shipping. Some of tho most Important general measures are In the llnal legislative, stages, and it will not be until tho last hours airlve that the success or failure of these measures will be determined dellnltely. The present Congress began Its woik almost simultaneously with tho opeiimgof President McKlnley's administration. Two days after Ills inauguration be issued tho call for an extra session, and in pursu nnci! to this call Congress assembled on March 15, 1S7. The special message to Congress was directed to the need of a tariff law that would provide ample rov enuo for tho support of the govci m. ! No other subject of legislation was men tioned, and the tariff bill at once bei.in. the ill-absorbing feature uf the session Chairman Dlngiey of the ways and means military affairs divided equally on tho committee, and hta republican assoclatis bill, Hen. llawley, tho chairman, and four had already done much work on the bill, others reiKirtlng a bill similar to that nnd threo days after the extra session passed In tho IIoue, while llvo other sen began the Dlngiey tariff bill was repoi ted. ators made a minority report, opposing It passed the House within two weeks of the proposed Incrcate, and suggesting a the opening of the session; passed the plan of temporary continuance of tho Senato May 7, beeumea law July 2J.

Seme irenpr.il legislation was enacted, including tlte. suspension nf President Cleveland's order setting aside 21.0on,0u0 acres of forest reserves; provid ing for a gradual abandonment of seeta llan Indian schools; extending relief to Mississippi flood sufferers, and to the des titute in Cuba and In India. The Cub in problem began to present an nnute phae at this early session, and tho Senate passed a resolution recognizing th Cu bans as belligerents, which, however, did not jiaas tho House THi; SBCOND SKSSION. Tho second session of the present Con gress is remembered as the great ,var ses sion. It shw tho culmination of tno pent- up sympathy for suffering Cuba; the de claration that the people of Cuba ought to be and are free and Independent; the declaration of war against Spain; and tho enactment of those vast cmoigency mens ores for prosecuting the war. Theio wero many messages from the President r.s tho war clouds darkened, ranging from tho submission of the report on the Maine disaster to the call for a declara tion of war. Tho hist real war legisla tion was when Congress placed at the dls- nosal of the President, without limitation J."o,(Mo,(i) as an emergency fund for n.i - tlonnl elefonce. On April 11 tho I re Sirlellt committed the entire Cuban question to Congress and Just one week later tho con- gressional resolutlonbeenm a lass-d.cUr-1 lnc Cuba free and inderjendent: de- niandlng that Spain sviHidiass- Its land and nas-al forces from Cu-'as ba and Cuban svaters, and dliect-lot lng the use of our land and naval for.es to enforce the resolutions. Within an other sseek, viz April 21, tho declaration of war ss-as p.'.Kw-d by Congress and ap proved. Then came the rush of ssar leg islation on a stupendous scale, the work proceeding svhlle actual hostilities svero under svay and tho Dcssey victory svns achieved. Tho act creating tho volunteer irmy hi'd been approved three days beforo the d. -duration of svar, and under It the Piesl dent was onableil to call Into se-.rvlee the 25e.dO men augmenting tho regular forces. T-i latter, also, had been expanded nnd improved by the act establishing the thu e battalion formation In time of svar. A lurther forco ss-as provided by authorizing tho enlistment of lO.WX) men adapted to tropical climates, hlnee knosvn as "lm munes." Another act added two addition al artillery regiments to the regular army with a total of 1C10 men. These and many lesser army measures were speedily in itctid. With theso war treasures svero tho Im portant acts lor ralilng revenue ndiquate to meet thu vast svar expendltuics. The first of theso svns the svar revenue act, de signed to rulso J150,OijO,0uu and in this con nection Congreiss authoilzed a bond suo of i.'oo.oon.o.jo known ns tl.o "war loan."

Tho present, or third session of the 53th Congress, dealt with 'those far-rc.ichliiB results grosvlnc out of tho wnr. Most Im portant of theso was the consideration of the peace treaty In tho Senate. The treaty was trnnsmltte-d to the Senate by tho ere sldent on the 4th of January. It wns then referred to tho rommlttec on foreign rela tions, and after being held for Just a week by the committee mm reported back to tho Senate on thin Jlth of January. The Senate had the treaty under consideration for less than a month, tho vote on rati flcatlon hcltic taken on tho sixth of Fob ruiiry. There was Intense Interest In tho progiess of tho question from the begin nine ot the discussion until tho close, and this rntcicst was Intenslllcd by tho doubt felt as to tho result of tho vote. when tho Scnuto wont Into executive session on tho Cth of February, half an hour hetorj tho time set for tho llnal vote, the men Is of tho treaty were cot tain of only 55 of tho M votes necessary to insure tho adoption of the resolution of rutllleatlon. Soon ill tcrwnrds they secured promises from Son- ators Jones, of Nevada, and McEneiy, ot l.oulslann, and when the vote was taken the result stod 57 ayes to 27 nays, or one Koto tnoru than was necessary under tho icinirement of a tssn-thlrds maiorltv While tho treaty was exclusively before the Senate tho House had wimo Indluct participation with subjects covered by the treaty.

At the outset Mr. Morgan Another measure of importance to the had tho subject made the unilnlshed bus!- ness of tho Senate, and with tills right of way It was kept constantly before tho Senate, when not in executive region, uii- til finally pissed.

President, with a view to carry ing out the congressional resolution an nexing Hawaii. It provides a comprehen slvo plan of territorial government, and fixes the qualification ot electors and of ficers. The bill has not, however, passed either branch of Congress, and although regarded as one of the Important pieces or pending legislation It Is hardly expected that it can pass all the stages nt this late day In the session. In icv of this, sev eral bills dealing with special phases in Hawaii have passed one or the other house. These include bills to extend thn custom and revenue laws to Hawaii; ex tending the1 navigation laws to Hawaii; and extending to the Hawaiian islands the contract labor laws of tho United States. Nono of these has become a law, us they are dependent largely on tho future of the general Hawaiian bill.
