they may bear fruit in legislation
under tha new administration.
The final session, now ending, has
witnessed a. struggle In the senate be
tween republicans and democrats, that
prevented the confirmation of the
greater part of President Taf t's ap
pointments. With more than 2.000 ap
pointments before the senate, demo
crats declined to permit action on the
great majority, and the result will be
that President -Wilson will All the
places after he comes Into office.
This factional struggle, coupled with
the Internal democratic contests for
the organization and control of sen
ate and house under the new adminis
tration. Injected the political equation
Into the last session's work to an un
usual degree. Several bills that might
have become law in the closing days
of this session have been held back
because democratic leaders preferred
to have the subjects carried bver until
a democratic president, senate an1
house can have an opportunity to car-
Important actions in the short ses
sion just closing include:
"Literacy test" immigration blU
passed, but vetoed by President Taft.
Single six-year presidential terra
amendment passed by senate.
Life prisoners in feieral prisons
made eligible to parole.

feated in the senate.

seize trust-controlled goods a toon
as imported Into the United States
Lincoln memorial authorized to cost
$2,000,000.
MEASURES VETOED.
The democratic majority that took
control of the house when the con- I
gress organized insisted
,
ahead with other features of tariff re
vision, and passed wool, cotton, free
list and some other bills. All three
measures with the aid of the progres
sive republican forces in the senate,
reached President Taft. They were
vetoed on the ground that the tariff
board was conducting investigations.
the results of which must be known
before a proper revision of the tariff
could be made.
Legislative work throughout the
special session, and the long session
beginning in December, 1911, and run
ning through last August, Included the
following:
Increase in the size cf the house of
representatives, from S96 and 43.1
members.

This congress has witnessed the
ratification of many important treaties
with foreign nations. The arbitration

two powers.

Britain.

proval, including democratic tariff
bills, appropriation bills which con
tained commerce court, civil service
and army reorganization and legisla
tion of which he did not approve:

It seems the two men had gone out
in the skiff early In the morning to
hunt ducks and were .making their
way toward Fort . Pickens when a
breeze caught them and upset their
flimsy craft, almost topheavy with its
mast and canvas.
MORE EXCITEMENT,
While Manager Birmingham and his
party were having their little adven
ture with the two sailors, bot of whom
are good swimmers but thought they
would take the chance of . waiting
awhile and saving their gun and skiff,
as the water was thirty degrees warm
er than the air and tey couldn't freeze
another party out in the Idler was
having excitement of a different sort.
Mrs. Napoleon Lajoie, wife of the
veteran player, got up the party Sat
urday arid chartered the Idler for the
day. Besides her husband, the crowd :
included Mr. and Mrs. Fre Carisch,
Trainer George Kukles an Mrs. Kuhles,
several of the older players of the
team and some of the newspaper men.
Xear the navy yard their engine
broke down and they floundered about
for some time before they were able
to attract attention and get a launch
to start out after hem.
The launch which went to their aid
was the San Carlos and it - was sun
down when It neared them- As the
San Carlos was about to throw a line
to the Idler, Its engine broke down
and the two driften apart.
For a half-hour both tried to get
attention, mechanics working on the
engines in the meantime. They were
unsuccessful in that but the San Car
los was finally fixed and it towed the
Idler in. The party reached the hotel
about 7:45 o'clock.
Both parties say they had a fine time
and the adventures and mishaps of the
afternoon only added variety and zest.

inaugural authorities are taking no
chances. Besides the ?00 men regu

TAFT IS POPULAR.
It is doubtful whether the "wieHer
of the big stick" ever reached the de
gree of popularity attained by Presi
dent Taft, and his outgoing is to be
made an occasion for emphasizing
this. On last Tuesday evening, Sen
ator John W. Kern, of Indiana, speak
ing at a banquet given to the commander-in-chief
of the G. A- R., said:
"No president of the United States in
many years has left office carrying
with him a greater-measure of love,
admiration and respect than will Wil
liam Howard Taft."
The "worot licked and the best
liked" met the members of the Na
tional Press club on Saturday after
noon. He took the occasion to say an
official farewell to the newspaper men.
The president's relations with the
newspaper workers of the city have
always been frank and cordial. His
offices have been open tc them with
out inuch restriction, and he has been
outspoken to them, talking confiden
tially and without fear.
When, at five minutes past three on
the afternoon of March 4, Mr. Taft
steps aboard his train for Augusta,
Ga., he will carry with him the love
and best wishes of all Washington,
regardless of politics.
A CABINET OF TEN.'
A new government department has
been created, thus making the presi
dent's official cabinet consist of ten
Instead of nine members. Both senate
and house have passed the bill creat
Ine- the department of labor. The de
partment of commerce end labor will
hereafter be known as the department
of commerce, and all matters pertain
ing to labor will be placed under the
new department, with a secretary of
labor at-its head- Other government
branches brought under his control
will be the division of immigration
and naturalization, the present bureau
of labor and the new children's bu
reau. Representative Wilson of Penn
sylvania, iatroduced the bill creating
the new department, and it was passei
by the house on July 17 last. Its pas
sage through the senate was due to
the activity of Senator Borah. There
is a rumor, .impossible to trace to any
authoritative source, that "Sammy"
Gompers, head of the confederation of
labor, will be the first secretary of
labor. Gompers has been "on the
fence," politically in every presiden
tial campaign, and no one seems to
know just where he stands as regards
the Incoming administration.
