Congress Not Likely to Continue In
Session After Juno IS.
Washington, MAy 22. Preseril Indl
cations point to nn adjournment of con
gress About tbo IGtb of Juno. The
great dttlmto of tltu session has been
brought to n close, tho railroad rate
bill hns beon pnsscd by tbo senate, nnd
the way la now clear for tho regular ap
propriation hills And other Important
legislation that demands consideration.
In tho house of representatives tne
work is up to dalo. All of tho big ap
propriation bills, oxcopt the sundry
civil bill, bavo beon passed by that
body, And this last bill will bo reported
to tho house Just as soon as tho houso
Is ready to rocelvo tt. At tbo outside
two weeks la ample to pass this bill
and two unimportant appropriation
bills ynt to bo considered, tbo general
deficiency and tbo diplomatic.
In tbo senate appropriation bills
bavo lagged behind on account of the
dobs to on tbo rati bill, yot in splto of
this protracted discussion the senate
has found opportunity to pass the urgen
cy deficiency, pension, fortifications,
army nnd Indian appropriation bills,
and will make short work of those.jiow
awaiting consldoratlon, namely, the
postofllco, agricultural, leglrlatlvo, Dis
trict of Columbia and military academy
bills. Tbo flcnato, in splto of ita repu

approaches. It always docs. Bo the
leglrlatlvo program, so far ns the ap

considered in such shape as to itermlt

It la tbo appropriation bills that deter
mine the length of tho session after all,
for when the last of these bills is agreed
to congress always adjourns, unless it
happens to bo In extra session, called
for some steclal purjtose.
Tbo conference committee having the
rate bill In charge Is not likely to ro
port Inside of two weeks, but in the
end tho houso will probably orcopt the
essential senate amendments, including
that offered by Senator Allison. The
fsct that th president approves this
amendmsnt will be ample justification
for the houso to give its assent, and the
further fact that practically all ths
other amendments meet with the ap
proval of tho president will insure their
