beginning next Monday So much time necessarily must lie used in considering the appropriation billa that the general program must bo very limited The administration apparently is determined that thure shall be no extra session next sum mer so the president must make very adroit selections if he is to set favored measures through without too great risk of compelling an tra session to finish with the sup ply bills Conservation will undoubtedly have an important place on Mr Wilsons list Two waterpower bills have passed tha house and are favorj ed by the oresident having TK proved from the conservationists over the form Va which they were introduced The president may also urge a bill which extends the policy of leasing public lands following the model of the Alaska leasing bill This proposed measure find opposition in the senate The mystery attending the fateoil the seamens bill has not yet been solved The president has continued noncommittal regarding thia legisla tion which passed both houses Iti radically different forms and is now awaitinga conference This bill is one of the pets of union labor Ac cording to its opponents its pro visions are wholly inconsistent with the business policy which must bo followed by ship owners it they are ic take full advantage of their privileges under the ship regfstiy law During the present period of transition it wight embarrass the ad ministration Nevertheless uii ions are likely to insist that this measure be enacted despite the ar gument that it may handicap the growth of the American merchant marine 4 Probably some of the

last session In their eagerness to forte the govern ment Into cotton speculation and which acording to the Reserve Board would have Increased the leading power of the reserve banks having dealings with the South to the extent of Not the least important among the measures which congress must consider soon Is the railway mail pay bill The president by his sil ence has practically approved the Moon bill which is backed by Post masterGeneral Burlesori and virtu ally turns the assistant postmaster ships over to the spoilsmen This bill also provides less rate of com pensation to the railroads than pro vided by the Bourne bill which has been worked out as a scientific meas ure The railroads are enthusiastic over the Bourne bill and the presi dent may be forced into a definite position soon The ShacklefordBryan good roads bill has passed the house and awaits action by the Senate This is a gift to the states of An other bill has been prepared em bodying a scientific plan of Federal aid to roadbuilding Here again the president must make a choice The house has also sent to the senate two convict labor bills one making goods of this kind carried In Interstate commerce subject to the laws of the state of destination and the other forbidding their Importa tion from abroad The Burnett im migration bill with its literary test is ready for action by the senate The President is expected to re new his advocacy of the shippur chase bill which will meet with hard sledding in both branches An im portant House bill seeks to place all water transportation under the jur isdiction of the Interstate Commerce commission Resale prices patent legislation the labelling of manu factured goods with reference to adulteration and misbranding the licensing of warehouses the admis sion of state banks to the Federal Reserve are only n few of many important subjects fur legislation which may be considered during the term of President Wilson Ifnot in the coming session The contest over the rivers and harbors bill may be renewed al though it can be said that the spoils men are in a somewhat chastened mood So far President Wilson has not announced his attitude toward this measure But with the neces sity of economy staring him in the face it Is expected he will ask for its close pruning At an election tield early in No vember the school district 61 Thorn ton and several nearby rural dis
