Washington, Mar. 3. This is the
last legislative day of the sixty fifth
congress. . , j
Beth .houses will remain in practic

Tho final hours promised to elima

left undone ' ...
Interest centered" in the senate as
to how many appropriation bills the re
iuiblicaii.) would1 force over to the ex
tra session.
Tho general impression among both
democrats and republicans early to
day was that tho army and navy, agri-
culture and District of Columbia appro
priation bi!ls would fail of passage.
Republicans Reticent

eKpre9sion, due, tlioy 8aid, to what they
termed their party's surrender on the
victory loan bill, regarded as the only
measure failure' of which might mean

.Failure of republicans to unite in a'
determined filibutor against tho presi

Telegraphers Union Strikes
As Soon As Officials Order
Portland,' Ore., March 3. Tho Port
land council of the Commercial tele
graphers union of America has voted
to strike as soon us orders are received
from the international president.
The council met Hunday and so de
cided. Resolutions which were adopted
declare that Postmaster General Burle
son has failed to keep his promises and
that the United States telephone and
telegraph administration has shown con
tinued hostility toward organized labor.
The principal grievance cited by tho
council was tho alleged failure to re
instate discharged members and fulfil
wage agreements.
Similar strike votos were taken Sun
day in many other cities of tho country.
A great deal nf enow has fallen in
the Ciise-nde and Coast mountains in
