Azinger wished to reach Hollidays

"Edge" Taken Off Monday's Cere
monies Because of Long Protracted
Special Session Much Work Ahead,
For the first time in many yearn
congress on Monday stepped over
from one session into another with
out a break in the routine and in con
sequence the interest usually sur
rounding the opening of a new con
gress wi.s absent.
The second or regular session ol
the sixty-third congress was ushered
in by formal proclamation of the vice
president and speaker in the senate
President Wilson appeared at 1
o'clock on Tuesday to read his annu il
message at a Joint session in the house
chamber. Aside from this formality
the first days of the new session will
be scarcely distinguishable from the
closing days of the old.
The extra session just ended was
limited, by informal agreements with
President Wilson, to the considera
tion of tariff and currency reform, and
nothing that might interfere with
these Issues was taken up. The cur
rency bill still dominates the situa
tion as the new session begins but the
administration program of antitrust
and railroad legislation, which is to
follow, must share the field with u
score or more of other Important sub
jects. It Is the hope of the Democratic
leaders that the currency bill can bo
disposed of in the senate by tho end
of December and can be completed
by botli houses of congress and signed
jy tie president In January. In an
ticipation of this the plans for anti
trust legislation will be taken up this
week by President Wilson, in confer
ence with Representative Clayton,
Senator Newlands and other members
of the Judiciary and Interstate com
merce committees of the two houses.
Other important projects Include:
Further regulation of railroads as to
rates and stock issues, government
owned railroads for Alaska, regulation
of trading in cotton and grain futures,
federal aid for vocational education,
establishment of a system of rural
land banks, independence of the Phil
ippines, constitutional amendment foi
woman's suffrage, regulation of work
ing conditions of merchant sailors
legislation to promote safety at sea:
two battleship naval program, estab
lishment of a federal armor-making
plant, good roads legislation, Investi
gation of cost-of-living problems and
all the annual appropriation bills.
The bill to give Sun Francisco
water Bupply rights in Hetch-Hetchy
valley, over which a conservationists'
fight has waged for more than a year,
Is set for a vote In the senate Dec. 8.
Another agreement calls for consider
ation Immediately afterward of the
bill to authorize construction of gov
ernment railroads in Alaska. A similar
measure has been favorably acted
unon by a committee of the house.
These bills, with the "seaman's servi
tude" bill which recently passed the
senate, probably will be the first meas
ures of a general character considered
Investigations to determine the
cause of Increased prices In food prod
ucts are expected to begin soon.
Resolutions demanding such Inquiries
are now before congress.
President Wilson has Indicated his
keen Interest in the development of a
system of rural land banks or credit
agencies that would meet the needs
of country districts more adequately
than can existing commercial banks.
The recent recommendations of the
commission that studied rural credit
systems of other countries have em
phasized the need of such a system.
It is expected that soon ufter the pas
sage of the currency reform bill the
work of devising un adequate system
of rural banks will be undertaken by
congress and an effort made to enact
legislation before adjournment next
Plans have not yet been matured by
the administration for the handling of
the Philippine problem. It Is expected
that renewed efforts will be made
early In the senate to pledge congress
to a measure giving early inde
pendence to the islands. This light
will be led by Representative Jones
of Virginia, chairman of the house
fxnmlttee on Insular affairs.
The new session probably will wit
hesB more activity prior to Christmas
lhan any session of recent years. Dein-ocrat-j
leaders propose to hold the
senate to thirteen hour sessipns, with
no Christinas vacation unless? tlm cur
rency bill Is passed before the time
set for the holiday. In the house
meantime an effort will be made to
dispose of several of the annual ap
propriation bills before Christmas so
that appropriation legislation will In
terfere as little os possible with th-J
consideration of other matters.
No Union pf Brotherhoods.
F.mphatlc rieninl that the five rail

In Altoona, Pa., by W. H. Pierce,
president of the Brotherhood of Loco
motive Firemen and Kiiginemen.
"There Is absolutely no truth In such
a report," he detiured.
Uncle Sam Won't Be Rich Enoujh to
Go Too Far, Secretary Declares.
Naval , Holiday Idea Is Indorsed.
In his first annual report to tho
president Secretary of the Navy Dan
iels recommends a navy building pro
gram considerably less than that
recommended by the navy general
Two dreadnoughts, eight destroyers
and three submarines is as much as
Uncle Sum's pocketbook will stand ac
cording to the present estimate of
revenues, according to the secretary.
Despite this curtailment the naval sec
retary believes the program he recom
mends Is a progressive one.
Regarding his building program Sec
retary Daniels nays in part:
"With the authorization of two of
the largest battleships ever construct
ed, before the close of the present
administration, the United States will
have enough ships to have always a
creditable and capable fleet In both
the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans.
These, together with the smaller Bhlps
under construction, will make the
American navy one of strength and
power, ready for the protection of
American shores and American in
terests. "Those who bid us stand still In
construction will not approve this con-
servative program. Those who wish
to hasten more rapidly in construction
will not give It their approval. It Ims
been recommended, after mature con
sideration, as a middle course of wis
dom." Second only in interest to the sec
retary's building program is an In
dorsement of Winston Churchill's pro
posed "naval hollduy," with a recom
mendation thut the United States
take the initiative anfd" that President
Wilson ask congress to authorize him
to invite all the powers to a confer
ence to disruss the project.
In Indorsing a naval holiday the
"The growing cost of dreadnoughts,
of powder and of everything that
makes an efficient navy give reason
for pause. This heavy expense com
mands national and International con
sideration. The naval appropriation
has doubled In thirteen years and yet
this country has not Joined the ex
pensive competition and race for over
large navies to the same extent as
have some other great nations.
"I venture to recommend that tho
war and naval officials and other rep
resentatives of all the nations be in
vited to hold a conference to discuss
whether they cannot agree upon a
plan for lessening the cost of prepara
tion for war.
"I trust the tentative suggestion for
a naval holiday by the strongest of
the powers will be debated and the
matter seriously considered by an In
ternational conference looking to re
duction of the ambitious and costly
plans for navy increase. I trust that
this country will take the initiative
and thut steps will be taken by a
conference of all the powers to dis
cuss reduction of the heavy cost of
the army and navy."
Immediate acquirement and opera
tion of oil wells and refineries to fur
nish fuel for the navy, government
manufacture of armor, more naval
chaplains, better educational facilities
for enlisted men and a graduated re
tirement law are the other chief
Tho secretary thinks that tho time
bus come when the navy should bo
freed from excessive prices charged
by prlvuto manufacturers of armor
plate, guns and gun forgings, powder,
torpedoes and other supplies and
munitions, so he recommends appro
priations for an armor plate factory
and an Increase in tho gun factory,
the powder factory and torpedo works.
NO GINGER TO BUSINESS
Situation Is Flat Because of Prevail
Dun's Review of Trade says this
"Lessened activity in industrial
channels reflects prevailing uncertain
ty regarding the future. The distribu
tion of merchandise for Immediate re
quirements coptinues large, Vftfl re
trenchment rather than expansion
characterizes the situation. Caution
in entering upon forward commit
ments in general and new enterprises
are limited, while economy is prac
ticed in numerous quarters. Labor is
not so well employed and more ma
chinery Is idle In iron and steel, the
leading mills now running cousider
ably below their full capacity.
"Curtailment of operations results
mainly from the restricted buying on
the part of the transporting com
panies, which experienced difficulty In
obtaining needed funds for equipment
and extensions. The opening of tho
eastern freight rate Inquiry and the
beginning of the currency debate in
the senate attracted attention."
