The Work ol the Mcoalon,
WAsnt-voioK, Dec. 1. Senator and
resentatives to-day in discussing tho outlook
for tho session generally agreo that it ia
likely to extend into next Hummer; that no
very great amount of legislation will bo ac
complished, but that each party will bo kopt
busy watching tho other and taking up as
good a position as possible for tho presiden
tial vcar. The policy of tho dominant ma
jority in both houses in regard to such mat
ters as tho proposed renewal of last year's
contest over tho election laws, and upon
financial moasurcs llko Warner's sliver bill
will not bo settled in Imsto, nor without
inaturo inucus deliberation concerning th m.
It ia not likely, then, that ntiy indefinito
forecast can bo tnado roiiKcllnif tlieso sub
jects until after tho Christmas recess. Tho
nununl appropriation bills nro not expected
to bo reported very cnily this session, but
tho IIouso will bo occupied for sumo tlmo
with tho dlscasslon of a thorough revision
of its rules soon to bo reported from Speaker
Itandall'H committee, and wltJ contested
election cases 10 in all which Chairman
Springer promises to bring bcloro the IIouso
for notion this session with much greater
promptitudo than has been unfortunately
tho custom in provious sessions of Congress.
Another subject that will bo brought for
ward for speedy action, niilcst a resignation
forestalls its main purpose, Is tho impeach
ment of Minister Howard.
Tho Henato will shortly receive reports
