Washington, A p ril 21.— The policy
of doing nothing in the house seems to
fie satisfactory w ith the Republicans,
or at least they do not complain about
the matter, except on rare occasions.
It is claimed on the Democratic side
tiiat if the committees were appointed
that tiiere would be quite a revolt from
tlie subjugation in which the speaker
holds the house. Considerable com­
plaint is heard among those who want
to get some legislation through the
house, but tlie fear of the Republicans
is that, in case any legislation is al­
lowed to pas* other than tlie tariff hill,
the senate w ill take occasion to take up
arid pass bills rather than consider the
tariff. If it is understood that the
house w ill not consider any legislation,
tlie senate may not devote any o f its
tim e to considering hills.

F«x»t o f Milauna Pass, A p ril 20.— A
fierce battle raged in tlie pass all night
long. The Greeks enter*«! ami «iesoemi-
tsd towar«! the valley, emroiuitere«! four
battalions of Turkish troop*, w ho drove
them back, and at the point o f the l»ay-
onet rescued the force garrisoning the
Turkish bloekitoueea, which the Greeks
had encircles! before entering the pass.
Kesha«! Pasha, commanding the Fifth
division, occupied Mount Harnia, with
a great force, while H airi Pasha, com­
manding the Sixth division, preparwi
to enter the Techaieahn pass, ami
Haida Pasha, with the Fourth d iv i­
sion, occupied Milouna pass.
Before dawn, Edhim Pasha rode out
to direct the disposition o f the <iivi-
siows. A general engagement ensue«!.
The battle still continues along tlie en­
tire [«ass, over 20.000 men being en­
gage«!. The combat turned on tiie pos­
session o f tlie Greek blockhouse, which
was most obstinately «defended. Sev­
eral vigorous attacks were made by tlie
Turks, without success, but, finally,
about 2 o ’clock, by a magnificent dash,
tbe*y took the blockhouse at the ¡saint
of the bayonet.
The Greeks are still «iefending their
positions on the summit of the hill.
A t the present moment four battalions

vancing to the frontier ¡ositions already
The Turks are fighting like demons.
The Turkish artillery is doing splemlid
work under the command of Hir.a Pasha.
The correspondent says: ‘ ‘ I regret
to have to announce tlie death of Hafiz
Pasha at Milouna. The battle is still
undecided, but the Turks, without call
ing up the reserves, have taken almost
the whole pass. It is impossible to
g iv e details as to basses. I saw many
group* o f wounded men, but they w«-re
mostly on the heights. Ambulances
have been sent to bring them in. I
cannot say whether the Turks intend to
advance on Larissa.”

Athens, A p ril 20.— In the fighting on
the frontier, the Turks have occupie«!
Ana ami Milouna, but they have n< t
succeeded in taking Kama. The en­
gagement at Milouna pass was of tlie
fiercest character, ami tlie losses were
heavy on both sides. The Turkish sol­
diers destroye«! two pieces of Greek ar­
tillery. The Greeks captured an en­
tire battery from the Turks. The Greek
officers of high rank were kille<J. A
