A RUSHING BUSINESS.
Washington, Mar. 2. About 250 bills
and resolutions were laid before the
house today and most of them were fs
vtirably acted upon.
The pension bills favorably acted on
at lost night's eetvdun were passed at
the rate of one every half minute.
Under suspension of the rules a bill
was passed appropriating $17,000 for
Washington amd Lee University (to re
imburse It for injuries sustained dur
ing the war).

Washington, Mar. 2. The near ap

fested itself today In the crowded aw
aito galleries, eager claimants about the
corridors and the bustles and confus
ion of important measure hurriedly
The senate worked tadustriously
throughout the day and although the
naval appropriation bill Invited flights
of oratory on our new navy, the de
mands of time reduced this to a mini
mum and made rapid progress possi
ble. It was kept steadily before the
sen.Ua throughout the day and again
at the night session with the determi
nation not to lay It aside until It, was
passed. There w re constant interrup
tions, however, as the conference com
mittees reported their progress in re
cotiulllng differences on pending bills
between the a mate and the house.
Early In the day the agricultural and
fortifications bills were Anally agreed
to and made ready for the president's
rignature. Five others besides the na
val bill are yet to have differences har
monized In the conference.
At the outset of debate on the naval
bill an effort was made to defeat the
plan of reductibwi made by the appro
priations committee, by which the
house hill was cut aKkit $2,600,000
and the number of battleships reduced
from three to two. After a sharp de
bate tn which tho need of a strong nav
was discussed, 'ithe commit tttee wa
sustained. The speech of Hill was not
able in urging that the United States
had won her grreatest achievement
without a navy and urged both diplom
acy and reason, instead of cannon balls
and force. .
Hrrnun took occa.-Hn during the
day to st lite that if t'.io wholesale ap
propriations stood as already made
the total far this session would exceed
that of any ee-sslon smco the govern
ment was formed. After recess, the
