ONGRilES THIS WEEK
n Canal Bill Before House
" on Special Order.
, !HE DEBATE UPSET.
: the Offer to Sell the Panama Route
May Widen the Discussion and
Cause Delayed Action-Senate
No Set Programme.
Washington, Jan. 6.-After a recess
of almost three weeks both houses of
congress reconvened today. The prin
in* cipal item on the house program for
* the week is the Hepburn isthmian ca
.** nal bill, which is the special order for
,* tomorrow. No time has been fixed for
*" the debate on the measure, but Mr.
Hepburn does not contemplate a pro
longed discussion of it. It is surmised
.S. in some quarters, however, that if the
proposition of the Panama Canal com
: pany to sell its property and fran
4 chises for $40,000,000 is made, as prom
p ised, this may have the effect of open
ing a widei field of discussion than
at first seemed probable, and if this
. should prove to be the case the bill
may be before the house for a longer
time than is now contemplated.
*. It is expected that by the time the
canal bill is disposed of there will be
$* one or more appropriation bills ready
*: for consideration by the house. None
% of the appropriation bills has yet been
. passed on by the appropriations com
mittee, but both the urgent deficiency
bill, the pension bills are a forward
state and the expectation is that they
will be considered by the committee
during- the current week. The pres
ent intention is to give first atten
tion to the deficiency bill, whose es
timates aggregate 120.000,000.
The senate has no program for the
week and very little business on its
calender, as the reorganization of the
senate committees did not take place
until just before the holidays. There
are, however, a fed bridge bills re
ported angi Senator Morgan's hille f,',
the acquls'itton or right of way for the
Nicaragua canal is among the meas
ures to receive attention.
On account of Senator Sewell's death
the senate will probably adjourn until
the following Monday.
Washington, Jan. 7.- When the
house met yesterday after the holiday
recess there was a large attendance in
the galleries, but more than half the
seats on the floor were unoccupied.
The chaplain in his invocation referred
feelingly to the death of late Senator
Sewell of New Jersey. No business
was transacted. Loudenslager of New
Jersey, announced the death of-Sen
ator Sewell and offered resolutions
which were adopted, and as a further
mark of respect the house adjourned.
Washington, Jan. 7.-The senate
met yesterday after recess for the
holidays, but no business was transact
ed on account of the recent death of
Senator WinVm. J. Sewell of New Jersey.
In his invocation at opening of the
session Chaplain Milburn made touch
ing reference to the death of Senator
Sewell. He referred also to the disa
bility of Senator Berry of Arkansas
an:l prayed he might be able soon to
return to the senate. !
The customary resolutions were
adopted and the senate adjourned as
a mark of respect to the memory of
ht Senator Sewell.
Panama Offer Too Late.
Washington, Jan. 7.-Representative
Hepburn. chairman of the interstate
ad ioreign commece committee of the
house, has been advi::ed by the secr"
tay of state of cable notification con
cerning the willingness of the Planama
Canal company to sell its properties to
the United 'ta.a for $10,000l.000, lbut
he says thi: will in no way effect the
progress of the pendling hill which he
claims will ass by overwhelming ma
jority. 110 will try and get a vote on
the bill on W'cdin'sday.

te The advocates,of peace at Manila
deprecate the stern measures employ

a Bell says that these peace advocates

The arrest of members of the
wealthy Lopez family, and the confis
d cation of their steamers and rice, as
well as the arrest of three members
of the religious corporations, who were
known to be instigators of the insur
rection, has had an excellent effect
upon the natives.

men before he received his wound,
and that the remnants of the detach
ment of 18 men were saved by his
1- personal courage and daring.
The civil authorities say that the
, island of Leyte is now perfectly peace
ful. On the other hand, the military
authorities consider Leyte to be dan
pe gerous on account of its proximity to
)i Samar, if for no other reason. Last
. Friday Major Albert L. Meyer of the
Eleventh infantry captured quite an
extensive arsenal and plant for the
o making of cartridges at Ormoc, on the
