Only Six of Fourteen Big Ap
propriations Bills Passed.
rood Administration in Bad Odor in
Senate From Beglunlg
of War.
Ington, Jan. 115. An extra session of
Congress now seems inevitable, with
only six of the 14 big appropriation
bills reported to the House and four
Many of the Democratic leaders in
Congress are opposed to an extra ses
sion, but they do not seem to be able
to put legislation through rapidly
enough to avoid it. Besides the .gen
eral appropriation bills yet to be con
Bidered and passed, therS is the census
bill, one of the most important meas
ures before this Congress, which will
provide for the Nation-wide enumera
tion next year not only of every hu
man being in the United States, but
also for gathering complete statistics
as to every human, industrial or busi
ness activity in the country.
Still another bill to be disposed of is
the one providing for the purchase of
the 1919 crop of wheat by the Gov
ernment, a measure certain to arouse
long and heated discussion, especially
In the Senate, where the Food Admin
istration has been in bad odor from
the beginning' of the war.
There are many surer signs of an
extra session, however, than the con
gested state of legislation. Both houses
of Congress are now in the hands of the
Democrats. The next House is Re
publican by a large margin and it ap
pears certain that the Republicans also
will organize the Senate. One indi
cation of an extra session therefore in
that connection is that the present
Democratic employes in both the Sen
ate and House arc now looking for
other employment.
A difference of opinion seems to exist
between the public health service and
the Army school as to the efficacy of
the vaccine serum treatment as a pre
ventative for influenza and pneumonia.
This becomes apparent in the attitude
of the two bureaus toward a request
for the distribution of some of the
serum among physicians in Idaho,
made by Representative Addison T.
timith. In reply to a request for a
quantity of this serum the public health
service responded that it was not pos
sible to respond to the request, but
added that investigations regarding the
serum treatment as a pneumonia de
terrent had been unsatisfactory. The
Army school, on the other hand, ex
pressed pleasure at being able to send a
quantity of the serum.
At memorial services to be held in
the chamber of the House of Represen
tatives next Sunday, tribute will be
paid to the life and public service of
the late James H. Brady, of Idaho. Rep
resentatives Smith and French, of
Idaho, will deliver the opening eulo
gies, and will be followed by Repre
entatives Little, of Kansas; McArthur
and Hawley, of Oregon; Baker, of Cali
fornia; Johnson, of Washington; Well
ing, of Utah; Austin, of Tennessee;
Mondell. of Wyoming; B. L. Fairchild,
of New York; "Baylor, of Colorado, and
Evans, of Montana.
Some of the California members of
Congress who have tummcr play
grounds and other spots worth a "once
over," from the tourist in their dis
tricts, find themselves in an awful
mess, a really, truly embarrassing pre
dicament. Representative Nicholas J.
Sinnott, of the Third Oregon district.
Is responsible for their troubles.
Mr. Slnnott, in a speech on the water
power bill in the House, digressed for
a moment from the subject under dis
cussion to tell the House of Represen
tatives and the world about the beauty
spots of Oregon in general and Crater
Lake in particular. During his flight
the Oregon Representative was wafted
off into poetry and the nature of his
inspiration can best be interpreted by
quoting his own language. Among
Other things, are these:
Crater Lake, cauldron-Uk. and circular,
7000 feet high, is perched amid the peaks.
Perpendicular sides of slassy lava rise over
a thousand feet from waters of indigo blue
lx miles across and two thousand fet deep.
To the scientist, a mighty volcano col
lapsed within itself. Mount Maz&ma. 15,000
feet high, telescoped.
To the poet, "the sea of silence," "a lake
of mystery."
To me, a shell hole of a war of worlds
who knows?
Could the great blind poet have seen this
marvel ere his pen had Lucifer and his
host of rebel angels
"Hurled headlong flaming from the etheral
"With hideous ruin and combustion, down
in Miltonic imagery here he'd have found
the impact.
vlsts, the reverse to the Russian and
Czecho-Slovak forces there being said
to be chiefly due to failure of arms t
arrive from Vladivostok.
Troops Retreat 14 Mllf m.
The troops which defended the city
have fallen back to Zlatoust, 140 miles
to the northeast, where they are mak
ing a courageous stand in the gorges
of the Ural country. Thousands of
rifles have arrived at .the front and
have been rushed to Cheliabinsk, which
is not believed to be in danger.
Military experts here realize that the
weak points on the Ural front are be
tween Ufa and Cheliabinsk and- further
south at Orenburg, where General Du
toff's Cossacks are reported to be worn
out by constant pressure from- superior
forces of Bolshevists. Negotiations for
the dispatch of allied contingents to
Orenburg are now going on, but have
not as yet been brought to a successful
conclusion. The capture of Orenburg
would give the Bolshevists oontrol of
the railroad running into a rich sec
tion of Turkestan and would ' increase
their ability to resist allied and Rus
sian forces. (Unconfirmed reports re
ceived in London, January 23, stated
that Orenburg had been taken by the
Reds Are Reorganized.
Farther north Bolshevist forces driv
en back from Perm when General Gal
da's Siberian and Czecho-Slovak troops
took that city, have 'been reorganized
and are reported fighting desperately
along the Kama River. The Bolshev
ists are reported to be attempting an
advance to the southeast of Perm in
the direction of Ekaterinberg. In spite
of the fact that the Russian troops and
their comrades are without sufficient
clothing and have suffered great hard
ships, it is believed here that with Gen
eral Jules Janin, commander of the
Czecho-Slovak army, in charge of mil
itary affairs, and with General Knox
of the British army, looking after the
equipment of the forces, the situation
in this section is favorable.

Allowances on Credits This Month
Said to Be Smallest Since
Nation Entered War.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 25. America's
job as banker for the allies has been
lighter this month than at any time
since the Nation entered the war. Only
$170,000,000 has been paid out as allied
loans since January 1, tlje Treasury re
ported today, although payments on
this account have been nearly J400,
000,000 a month. The reduction is
caused principally by the curtailment
of shipments of food, for payment of
which American credits had been large
ly used.
Total credits extended by the Treas
ury now amount to J8.588.773.000. but
only $7,854,816,000 has been actually
paid out under these credits.
Credits established and payments
made up to today were reported as follows:

pose as being to provide employment
for returning soldiers and the other
surplus labor but Representatives Sin
nott, of Oregon, and French of Idaho,
declined to take this excuse seriously.
Representative Sinnott said he doubted
the advisability of appropriating large
sums for public buildings at this time
although the bill will give his district
$60,000 for a building at Hood RfVer
and $10,000 for a postoffice site at
Klamath Falls.
Representative French sent a letter
to Chairman Clark of the committee
protesting against a building pro
gramme in which he said:
"This cannot be done on the plea
that it will be a means of furnishing
employment for labor or a market for
materials because experience tells us
that it requires two or three years
after a bill is approved before work
on buildings actually can begin."
The building bill which is revived
by this direction includes the following
Northwest building projects besides
those at Hood River and Klamath
Falls: Oregon City, $75,000 for building;
Corvallis, $10,000 for building " site;
Hoquiam, Wash., $70,000 for building.

NEW YORK. A modest home at No.
462 Second avenue was turned from a
desolate house of mourning last Friday
to one of joy, when news was received
by Mrs. Mary Lynch that her son. Pri
vate William F. Lynch, of I Company.
308th Infantry, was living and would
soon return to her. He had been re
ported killed in action at Chateau
Thierry and a solemn high requiem
mass had been said for him at St. Car
mellate Church.
He left for France on April 6, 1917.
and for several months his mother had
not heard from him. On September 24
last she received the dreaded ofTlclal
telegram from Washington announcing
that he had been killed in action on
August 22 in the battle of the Vesle
River near Fisme.
Mrs. Lynch aged from her grief, and
than came a letter from a fellow sol
dier In her son's company. George Mc
eGe, giving the details of the soldier's
death as this friend had been told by
another. In the letter McGee said that
"Bill and three others, had Post No. 3
and I had Post No. 1, and on August
22. at a quarter of 5 in the morning the
Hoc ho put over a barlge which lasted
25 minutes. The infantry advanced on
us. but the boys all stuck to their posts.
Bill was operating a big machine gun
on his post when he received a bullet
right through his head, and he just
said 'My Ood,' and died."
Later a friend of Mrs. Lynch saw her
son's name reported in the casualty
lists as "previously reported killed in
action" and then reported as a prisoner
In Germany. Mrs. Lynch at once com
municated with the War Department in
Washington and received a reply on
Friday notifying her he was alive. That
same day she received a letter from
him, in which he said he was gassed
and taken prisoner at Chateaur Thierry
and that he was coming home soon.
"Don't have any soup ofr me when I
get home." he write.
