Trolley wires were cut, crews driven from their cars and, in some instances, non-union men were at tacked by strike sympathizers. Trol ley wires in Lakewood, a western suburb, were cut in several places with the result that the Municipal Traction company announced this morning ' that no further attempt would be made to operate cars in that section until the Lakewood authori ties guaranteed protection for its men and cars. Because of alleged1 discrimination against Lakewood by the Municipal Traction company in the matter of fare, it is claimed that the authorities of the town' make no effort to sup press lawless acts committed by tsrike sympthizers, After a conference that continued almost throughout the night between officers, headed by President Mahon of the street car men's union, and members Bishop and Owens of t he r,tate arbitration board, it was stated unofficially that a formal proposition of arbitration would be made to Pres ident Dupont oC the traction com pany by the arbitration board on be half of the men. There was a marked increase in the number of cars oper ated by the company, a five-minute schedule being maintained on some of the lines. CONGRESS SPENDS OVER A BILLION DOLLARS Washington, May iS The sixtieth consrress will have earned the title of a "billion-dollar congress" at its first session before adjournment is taken at the end of this week. It is esti mated that the total approapriations will reach $1,026,000,000, which is said to be the largest amount ever appro priated at a single session. The various items contributing ti make up this aggregate are as fol lows: Sundry civil, $120,000,000; leglis'a ive, exectuiv? and judicial, $33,000, 000; army, ?-)5.382,ooo; postoffice, $221,765,000: pension, $1163,000,000: fortifications, $f 1,500,000: agriculture, $11,643,000; District of Columbia. $11,500,000; diplomatic and consular, $4,000,000; naval, $1 2. ,662 ,000; In dians, ?o,ooo,ooo; urgent deficiency, $26,000,000; poblic buildings, $25,000, 000; general teficiency, $17,000,000: military academy, new immigrant station at Philadelphia, relief of cy clone sufferers in the Ssouth, etc., $1,500,000; permanent annual appro priation, $154,000,000. Those appropriations are for the fiscal year which begins July 1, 1008.

This would mean a deficit of between $125,000,000 and $'75.--oo,ooq. Chairman Tawney of the house committee warned the house last week that the deficit would reach 1$ 1 50,000,000, and if this prediction is fulfilled the surplus now in the treas ury will be wiped out by June 30, 1Q09, inasmuch as lit the end of this fiscal year there will be a deficit of between $60,000,000 and $65,000,000.
