WASHINGTON, March 18.-The fore
cast, of the week's events is as follows:
The debate on the railroad rate bill
will be continued in the Senate during
the present week. The prospect is that
the bill will more completely monopolize
attention this week than last, for while
under previous arrangement, the bill
could not be taken up until 2 o'clock,
under Tillman's present policy the bill
can be taken up each day as soon as
the routine business is completed. j
The House this week will consider ai
bill abolishing the grade of lieutenant-
general, the legislative appropriation ;
bill, some minor bills and possibly the :
post oflice appropriation biU. Although '
the program is not yet determined, it is
expected the statehood lull will lie
brought into the House Wednesday and
The fact that the Algeciras conference
has adjourned until March 20th has
given rise to the hope that France and
(icrniany in the meantime will reach a
basis of accord. At Algeciras the
symptoms of an agreement are consid

sign. This decision coming after the
conference between the foreign minister
and Prince Von Radolin on Saturday is
considered to show that while the Mo
roccan knot is not yet untied and while
the end of the conference is not in
sight, hopes are still undiminished that
a solution of the difficulty will be found.
The premier's position is rendered more
difficult owing to the uncompromising
attitude of the newspapers, the Temp
taking the le.id. which states that France
bus reached the utmost limit on both
the police and bank questions and this
view has the support of a very influ
ential body of opinion. The premier
therefore hesitates at a further conces
sion, realizing that further yielding will
render the ministry unpopular to the
the governors of Idaho and Colorado for
an alleged conspiracy to deprive the
defendants of their constitutional rights.
At the meeting held tonight under the
auspices of the Industrial Workers of
the World a number of speakers voiced
similar sentiments and a considerable
sum of omney was raised for the de
fense of the Federation officials.
