CONGRESS WILL
GET TO WORK
TARIFF BILLB WILL BE PUT TO
VOTE AND DELAYED MEAS

PANAMA CANAL TOLL
THIS QUESTION MAY BE DE
FERRED BY COMPROMISE
ARRANGEMENT.
Western Newepaper Union News Service.
Washington.—The removal of the
tariff ns an issue before Congress bj
the end of the week will mark an
Important step in the progress tqward
an early adjournment. Agreements for
votes on the leading tariff bills, cou
pled with understandings that other
important legislation will be disposed
of, indicate that the week will see
some of the most important work of
the session.
Failure of Congress to agree on the
appropriation bills which should have
been passed before July Ist, has em
barrassed many government depart
ments. Pressure has been brought to
bear on House and Senate to dispos.'
of the pending measures, and it is ex
pected giueh progress "ill be made in
the next ?ew- days.
The agricultural and naval bills are
in conference. Failure to act on the
postoffice appropriation bill bps re
tarded work in that department.
The first of the week will be de
voted, it is expected, to completion
of the sundry civil appropriation bill
and the debate on the Panama canal
administration bill in the Senate.
The Democratic wool tariff bill will
be voted on Thursday, the excise tax
bill Friday and the sugar tariff Satur
day. On each measure the debate will
be limited to tlie single day set for
the vote.
It is expected that the House will
take up the tariff again and pass the
cotton bill, as the result of the Sen
ate's determination to submit the
other Democratic measures to a vote.
The House will consider measures
regulating employment of seamen on
American ships; the eight-hour law
covering government work; the "free
ship" bill, for the admission without
tariff duty of materials used in Amer
ican ships, and the wireless telegraph
measure agreed upon by the two
houses.
The need for immediate legislation
regulating the operation of the Pan
ama canal is fully appreciated in the
Senate, where the fight over free tolls
for American ships threatens to hold
up the bill already passed by the
House. A plan has been broached in
the Senate to pass a temporary meas
ure giving President Taft executive
authority to operate the canal and to
fix a temporary toll rate, leaving the
permanent question to be settled ai
the next session.
Mail Sharks’ Loot.
Washington. One hundred and
twenty millions dollars was filched
from the American people during the
last fiscal year by swindlers who op
erated largely through the mails, ac
cording to a formal report to Postmas
ter General Hitchcock. This was an
Increase of approximately $50,000,000
in the aggregate of the previous year.

Trenton, N. J. —The law which was
passed a year ago banning public
drinking cups Ijas made it impossible
for the thousands of travelers on Jer
sey trains to get a drink in this hot
and thirsty weather. In response to
the protests of the thirsty thousands
this law is to be repealed.
Drowned on 12-Story Roof.
New York. —Robert Kinsella, em
ployed by a corset company at 120
East Sixteenth street, was drowned on
