WASHINGTON After a final day of double pressure, congress adjourn ed Saturday ' night until December with a-remarkable record of work and all factions claiming the greater part of the credit The president's annual message cov ered the whole legislative field. ' The program which he ' especially urged contained about 18 measures, of which six were adopted. "The regulars claim credit for everything done that was mentioned in his message..

'" '' The great bulk of the work Was done In the last month, and a very im portant part during the last week. In the early half of the session the house was not industrious and the senate did practically nothing at all. A Billion Dollars Appropriated. More than a billion dollars was ap propriated. If continuing . appropri tlons bre incorporated In the totals of the general appropriation measures. Insofar as the figures could be obtain ed from measures wblch underwent changes in the last liours of the ses sion, the totar of the appropriations, exclusive of continuing appropriations, was 9894,086,943. " The amount' of the continuing ap propriations for the last fiscal year was about 9160.000,000. It is safe to say that it will not be less for the next fiscal year, ana the grand total there fore will aggregate at least 91, 054,' 000,000. . Not the least conspicuous acts of congress were the strenuous mea- sures taken by the house of represen tatives to reform Its system of con ducting business, so that less power might be reposed In the speaker and the organization of which he was the natural leader.

POWER OF DIAZ IS RENEWED IN MEXICO Leaders of Opposition Thrown Into Prison Under Guard ' of Troops. EL PASO, Tex. Porflrio Diaz, the 80-year-old statesman who has been President of Mexico continuously for 26 years, has been re-elected to that office. , Ramon Corral undoubtedly has been chosen ' to succeed himself as vice-president The result means that the policies of Diaz will continue another six years, or at least as long as the veteran ruler shall live. . Rain in the border states, where there was the greatest danger of trou ble, dampened the ardor of the oppo sition. Further discouragement to the antl-re-eleotlonlsts was found In the fact that their candidate for Presi dent Francisco Madero, spent elec tion day In the Monterey prison, and that many of the - active leaders of the opposition propaganda also were In custody and under guard of Federal troops. Whatever fight there was against the administration seems to have been concentrated on the candidate for the vlcepresidency, Ramon Corral, who Is being groomed by the party in power as the successor of Diaz. Corral be lieves In the encouragement of Amer ican investments in Mexico and in the protection of all foreign interests In the republic -on the theory that they are necessary to progress. His active attitude In this respect has en gendered widespread opposition to him, but by the same token, his can dldacy has been favored by the cap italistic class, domestic and foreign, Lawyer Out for Congress.
