Mr. Itlimd'ft I'ice Coliuine Dill.
Washington, Feb. 8. The senate
programme tbis week includes the Pad
dock bill to prevent tbo adulteration
and misbranding of food and drugs.
After final action is bad upon the bill
relating to public printing and binding,
which is unfinished business, the Idaho
senatorial contented election case will be
brought to the attention of the senate at
the earliest possible- moment. Mr
Palmer may also address the senate
upon the bill proiwsing the election of
senators by a direct vote of the people.
It is exected that in executive session
will be fought out the contest ovor the
nomination of Postmaster Kathburn of
Elinira, wherein Mr. Hill has taken
issue with the president, and perhaps
also the content growing out of the
opposition of the Indiana senators to the
nomination of Judge Woods of Indiana
to be circuit judge.
Contests are expected over several
matters which will be called up in the
house ut the first opportunity. The most
important ot these are the World's fair
investigation resolutions reported by
the appropriations committee and the
special Columbian exposition commit
tee. Tho latter committee will make a
strong fight to have the jurisdiction of
the investigation conferred upon it. The
rules committee will report during tho
week and if occasion offers will call
up one or more of the numerous resolu
tions of the investigation now before it.
Perhaps the most interesting feature
of the week, however, will be found in
the proceedings of the house coinage
committee, which made an ordor that
discussion close and votimr begin at 1 1
o'clock Wednesday on the Bland free
coinage bill. Since that order was made
Mr. Bland introduced a substitute for
the bill named in the committee order
and the session Wednesday may bo ex
hausted before the committee reaches u
iiual vote on the .question of reporting
the free coinage bill to the house.
