from rixge 1 cy program for the most part but will offer criticism when it Is deem ed necessary Will Await Recommendations Prospects for the first few days of the session are somewhat cloud ed The first task facing congress is enactment of a new liquor taxa tion law but the issue facesso many controversies final settlement may be somewhat delayed Neither house will do much this week other than convene and await President Roosevelts recommenda tions in his annual and budget mes sages The first probably will be sent to Capitol Hill Thursday the second Friday Then the house probably will take up the liquor tax bill framed by its ways and means committee provid ing for a levy of 52 a gallon on dis tilled spirits in place of the present tax of Slay Press Silver The senate probably will await house action on this bill before get ting down to work unless there should be an unexpected move to consider some of the measures now on its calendar such as the St Lawrence waterway pact or the measure to give President Roose velt power to declare arms embar goes in cooperation with other na tions There is a distinct possibility that the silver bloc may seize the lull in the senate as the opportunity to press for their free coinage bill which Senator Wheeler D Mont has ready to introduce as soonas the rules permit Leaders of the silver movement claim sufficient votes to put their bill through congress provided President Roosevelt does not come out In opposition They conceded however that the chief executive will have the final say on this as well as other issues of the session Greater Strength Shown The silver bloc approaches the convening of congress with even greater strength than it demon strated in the last session when Senator Wheelers 16 to 1 measure was defeated by the narrow margin of 43 to 33 in the senate Already two senators who voted switched over and others are known against the bill at that time have to be on the fence But even the most ardent leaders admit they cannot muster enough votes to carry the legislation over a veto if one should be forthcom ing Their only hope is to win President Roosevelt over by the strength of their showing Others in Foreground From sections of the farm belt will come condemnation of the ag ricultural adjustment administra tions efforts and attempts to modi fy the law under which it operates Other issues already casting their shadows ahead include reciprocal tariff powers for the president de velopment of other rivers along the line established by the Tennessee valley development control of the stock exchanges railroad legisla tion extension of the reconstruc tion finance corporations authority and revision of the securities act Five Men Stabbed in Filipino Celebration SACRAMENTO Cal Jan 1 Knives
