HUMAN BOXES IX SHARK
Grewsome Find, First of Kifad, on
South Florida Coast
Miami, Fla., March 4. —A human
skull, right altoulder-blade, left thigh
bone, upper arm bone aud one finger
bon e were found yesterday morning in
the stomach of a 12-foot shark cap-
I ture. by Henry Sanford, of New York
' and Lritehfield, Conn., near Soldier Key,
12 miles from Miami. The shape of
the skull and size of the bones indicate
they were those of a white man, evi
. dentlv about 40 years old. The bones
I were in good condition and highly pol
j ist\ed, undoubtedly having been in the
shark's stomach tor months.
The shark was cut open at the Royal
Palm Hotel dock, and the gruesome find
! caused a commotion at the fashionable
J hostelry, as it is the first man-eating
[ .--hark ever found on the south Florida,
coast. There has been no death by

First Body- Under Com
plete Control of
Democratic Party in
WAS IN SESSION
FOR 637 DAYS
Much Important Legislation Accom
plished While Many Measures Pro-
Posed by President Wilson and
Party Leaders Failed of Paaeage
Washington, March 4.—The Sixty
third Congress, first under complete
domination the Democratie party
since 1895, ended to-day at noon.
It had been in almost continuous ses
sion since President Wilson's inaugura
tion two years ago. Beginning with an
extra session called by the President
April 7, 1913, the Congress thas worked
actually GJ 7 days.
Much important legislation was ac
complished, but much contemplated,
some of it hard pressed by. the Presi
dent and party leaders, was left undone.
It is the present intention of the Pres
ident and his advisees to give Congress
a rest. Kather than force au extra
session, they would leave the remainder
of the administration's constructive as
pirations to a new Congress next win
ter, wttiich, although under Democratic
control, will have a greatly reduced ma
jority in the House.
Foremost in the enactments of the
Sixty-third Congress were:
The Underwxjod-Simmons tariiKact,
with tho income tax, which reiplacecKthe
Pavne-Aldrich tariff law.
The Federal reserve act, reorganiz
ing the currency system.
Anti-trust laws to supplement the
Sherman act, including the Clayton law
aud Federal Trade Commission act, the
former providing for punishment of in
dividuals who violate business regula
tions and the latter establishing a gov
ernment institution to aid in keeping
business within the 'aw.
Kepeal of the Panama canal tolls
exemption for American coastwise sliip
Act directing the bu'-lding at a cost
of $35,000,000 of a government rail
road to the mineral fields of Alaska.
Act to regulat * cotton exchanges and
to penalize dealings in purely specula
tive cotton future sales.
A special internal revenue tax, com
monly called the "war tax."
A government war risk insurance bu
reau to insure American ships against
the hazards of war, and an act provid
ing for t-l.e transfer of foreign-owned
or built ships to American registry.
Of those measures which failed of
enactment or could not be considered
for lack of lime, the following arc re
garded by Democratic leaders as para

The immigration bill, including a lit
eracy test for admission of aliens,
which passe 1 both houses, was vetoed
by President Wilson and failed by a
narrow margin to repass the House on
a motion to overturn the veto.
Conservation measures urged by the
President to j rovide n new system for
leasing of water power sites and a
leasing system to open the mineral re
sources of the country.

The last session of the Congress was
notable, too, for the failure of the
great issues, national prohibition and
woman suffrage. Proposed constitu
tionaJ amendments precipitated two of
the most exciting legislative battles in
the history of the House of Represent
atives, both measures failing to re
ceive a necessary two-thiras vote.
Foreign relations of the nation were
constantly to the fore almost from the
beginning of the Congress, the Mexican
situation requiring close attention
from the outset, as had t-iie European
war. Throughout the session the Presi
dent ami the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee were in frequent conferences
.and much was done to restrain unusual
demonstrations which might have dis
turbed international tranquility. Early
in the session general arbitration
treaties witih several great foreign
lowers were renewed for five-year pe
riods and 2'! peace commission treaties
providing for investigation of interna
tional disputes before resort to arms
were negotiated aud ratified. A treaty
to enforce the regulatious adopted by
the London Safety at Sea Conference
was ratified last December, but with
an amendment making reservations
which came too late for other powers to
consider, thus preventing enforcement
of the convention. A treaty with Nica
ragua providing for acquirement of the
Nicaraguan canal route and naval sta
tions for $3,000,000 was left unratified
by the Senate and the pending treaty
witih Colombia directing payment of
$25,000,000 for the Panama canal
strip was held by the Foreign Relations
The closing session of the Congress
was almost whollv devoted to appropri
ation bills, the ship purchase bill fight
and a few general measures. Aside
from appropriations, about the only im
portant legislative enactments included
the creation of the coast guard by con
solidation of the life saving and reve
nue cutter services; reclassification of
grades in the diplomatic and consular
service; requirement of registration of
and iavposing social taxes upon all
dealers, manufacturers or importers of
opium, or its derivatives, and the cre
ation of the Kocky Mountain National
Park in Colorado.
Much debate on the condition of na
tional defenses enlivened the closing
session. Proposals for special investi-
the preparedness of the na
tion for war all failed. House naval
and militarv committees, however, con
ducted pubiie hearings on the subject
in connection with the military supply
The Congress also was marked by
I differences between President Wilson
i and some Democratic Senators over
' patronage; a spirited contest over con
firmation of nominees for the Pederal
' Reserve Board; two successful filibus-
I ters—one in the summer session against
I the rivers and har'boi'B appropriation
| bill and the oflier the fight of Repub
licans and Democratic allies against
the ship purchase bill —an unsuccessful
effort in the Senate to establish a
cloture rule to limit prolonged debate;
institution of a special inquiry into
outside influences exerted against the-,
ship purchase bill; a general lobby in

months, and'pro|>osal of an inquiry into
