Washington, April 27. The plans of
11k; senate for the week do not extend
beyond the continuation of the debate
on the Philippine government bill and
the consideration of minor matters
when there In no one prepared to speak
on the Philippine bill. There Is no pros
pect thus far for speeches In support of
that measure, and consequently all the
talk bids fair to continue to be on the
ii"gatlve side of the question. Up to the
present time the speeches nil have been
made by minority members of the Phil
ippine committee, but it is stated that
other Democratic senators have prom
ised to lift their voices in opposition to
the bill, among- them being Messrs. Tur
ner. Clay and Simmons. Senator Hoar
also has made known his intention to
speak on the bill, but it isnot expected
that he will be henrd during the pres
In the committees, the inquiries into
the sugar question s related to Cuba !
and into General Crozler's connection
with gun carriage inventions probably ',
will be begun. The committee on the
Philippines also will proceed with its
investigation into the condition of af
fairs in the Philippines.
There is a miscellaneous programme
nhcad for the house this week. Tomor
row the special rule for consideration of
the omnibus public building- bill will
bo brought in and passed, and the ir
mainder of the day will be devoted to
District of Columbia business. Tues
day the omnibus bill will be passed.
Wednesday consideration of the agri
cultural appropriation bill will be re
Hiimed and when It is. disposed of the

Seldom have the appropriation bills
been so well advanced at a long session
of congress as they are this year.
