tliat congress will adjourn between tba
lOili and 16th o( June," said Senator
Hale last Saturday when I asked him II
be tliouglit that it would b possibl to
accomplish th uecossarjr legislation bj
that time. "Of courso, we could con
tinue In session all summer," continued
tho senator, "but that is not our in
tention. W will dispose ol all -cnlial
legislation. Th balance w
will allow to go over to the short session
or will avoid entirely. Ho, I cannot tell
you anything more oi th program but
I regard it as a perfectly sal prediction
that adjournment will b taken at th
time mentioned." The senator' state
ment was received with the greateat
latisfaction by other members of con
gress to whom I mentioned it, especially
by the representatives, as practically all
are ansious to get home and many
have considerable campaign work ahead
No sooner had the lenale passed th
oleomargarine bill on Thunday, which
was done by a majority ol eight vote,
than the Chinese eiclusion bill was
taken in). In order, howiver, that no
time be waited, th Indian approprla
tion bill waa called up and made th
orilur of business (or "the morning
hour." This means that the approprl
tion bil! will be discussed ai soon as tbe
daily routine btiiiuess ii disposed ol,
each morning, and will occupy the
floor until 2 p. in., when th exclusion
bill will be th regular oratsr. Literally
peaking, the morning hour la
uiiinomer as the isuat doei not usually
cotiven until noon, but th term ap
plies to the interval between the hour ol
convening and 2 p. m. It ii anticipated
that other appropriation bills will fol
low the Indian bill and will b con'
idered in the same manner.
As there is no party division on th
question ol Chinese exclusion it i hoped
that the bill may b passed without
prolonged debate aud it will give place

The investigation of tha Captain
Christmas charge by a select committee "
ol tha bouse is still in progress and tha
opinion Is held by ail that the captain
waa a very gullible person who was led
to part with his money by a few un
principled persons having no connection
with the government or with congress.
This applies to all but Secretary Hay,
who did gtv tha captain an audience

of the government, Mr. White, to con
fer with the Danish minister of Foreign
affairs; but that was th extent of Mr.
Hay' recognition of th promoter.
The house committee on territories
has favorably reported an omnibus bill
prov idlng (or the adm ission of Oklahoma ,

and friends ot the measure claim that
they have sufficient vote pledged to
cure its passage in tha house. They
predict that not more than two days will
be required for debate in th house and
as soon as the bill is disposed of la the
lower chamber they will be able to turn
their attention to the senate where tha
prospects, they admit, are not flattering.

thusiastic brethren to coulent thsin-
selves with its pi ssag in th house at
this session aod then begin their cam

Tli president has had a conference
with the friends of th Irrigation bill
and has outlinsd to them tha change
which they must make to prevent hi
vetoing th measure. Mr. Itoosevnlt is
unwilling that th fsderal government
should expend larg sums to construct
water reservoirs and that the water
hould b under state supervision. Tbe
friends ot the bill say that tbry are
willing to make tbe changes Indicated
but that, in some instances, existing
tat laws would make it luipoiiible to
apply the proviiloni of th proposed bill
to lenitory within their borders. The
chances for the bill are not as bright a
