WORK OF CONGRESS
BROUGHT TO CLOSE
Much Was Accomplished Dur
. ing SessionOver Billion
. 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 in
surgents and democrats see the re
sults far differently. The railroad bin,
the main Issue of . the " session,' as
adopted, ; bore ' practically no semb
lance to the original Taft-Wickeraham
Din, me insurgents Claiming mat tne
president had nothing left of it but
the commerce court. '" ''
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,'
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. V

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
Whatever fight there was against
the administration seems to have been

CHICAGO. Alarmed over unfavor
able crop reports, rallioa'ds extending
into the Northwest have decided to
inaugurate one of the most rigid rc
trenchment policies of recent years.
All Western railroads, including those
running from Chicago into the North
west and Into Canada, have had ex
perts out. on their lines for the last
ten days gathering ' data regarding
crop conditions. These men have
made reports to various railroad man
agements, which have caused general
alarm as to the tonnage of the future.
Railroad crop reports indicated
that along the lines of the St. Paul,
Burlington, Northwestern, Minneapo
lis & Omaha and other roads the
wheat crop, in several states, will not
be greater than 50 per cent The ex
perts declare that in Minnesota and
in North and South Dakota, for exam
ple, a large ' proportion of the wheat
acreage Is being plowed up and sown
to flax. ,
An early drouth, followed by days
of contlnuouB hot winds, which took
the moisture out of the ground and
started the wheat to heading out, have
been the causes of the threatened crop
shortage. On all of the Northwestern
roads all new construction has been
ordered stopped. One road which had
several hundred miles of new road
graded and ready for rails has ceased
