NEWS REVIEW OF
Congress Adjourns, Leaving
Boulder Dam Unsettled?
Notes of Politics.
By KDWARO W. PICKARD
WITH a row In the sennte that al
moat amounted to a riot, the Aral
session of the Seventieth congress
came to an end. The quarrel was an
Incident of the tnslatent efforts of
8enator. Johnson of California, and
othera to get action on the Boulder
dam bill. Senatdra Aahurat and Hay
den, with the help of Senator Blease,
had conducted a successful filibuster
for many bours and when the senate
by a vote of 46 to 35 adopted.a res
olution for adjournment Johnson ad
mitted defeat "I have made the best
fight of whlcb I have been capable,"
he Mid. "I have been whipped; but
by Heaven, gentlemen, there Is an
other day, and somebody else may be
whipped on that day."
Aa a matter of fact Johnson won
to a certain extent, for tbe Boulder
dam measure remained before the sen
ate at unfinished business * and aa
.such will hare tbe right of way when
congress meets In December.
One most , Important bill failed ?1
passage because of the QJIbuster. This
was tbe administration naval con
struction measure authorizing tbq
bunding of fifteen 10,000 ton cruisers
and one aircraft carrier. The army
blH -tmpowerthg the secretary of war
to place educational munition orders
with arms manufacturers also went
by the board. . 8o both the nitvy and
tbe army authorities, are feeling
ratber sad. Two other big bills "that
were left stranded were the railroad
consolidation bin, wblch was on tbe
house calendar, and the Shlpstead
Among the thousand bills passed by
congress In this session were the tax
reduction bill, tbe flood control mess
ure, the bill settling the alien prop
erty 'problem, that for development
of the-merchant mariffe, and tbe bIH
for utilisation or the plants at-Muscle
Shoals, - Whlcb last named Was ex
pected to meet e-"pocket veto" by tbe
President. Other measures enacted
provide for the extension of tbi Mis
sissippi barge - line to Its tributaries,
reduce postal rates, renew federal
aid road appropriations for two ad
ditional years, and authorize a gom
pretrenslve forestry research program.
president Cooltdge vetoed thirteen
bills, chief of them being the McNery
Haugen farm relief measure. Three
bills were passed over tbe President's
veto. One of these provided for/tbe
retirement of disabled emergency
army officers, another. Increased pay
of'postal employees assigned to nlgbt
work and the third Increased allow
ances for fourth-class postmasters.
Jf THE leaders of tbe Middle West
fanners can bring It about, there
wll) tp a great demonstration by agri
culturists of that region at tbe Repub
lican convention *tn Kansas City, for
the purpose of forcing the Urtf to
recognise, the claims of the farmers
la Its lllatfonn. A committee of /ep
resentatlves from fourteen state? baa
been named to go there and impress
on the convention that tbe "corn belt
uprising" Is more than talk and rep
resents a serious peril to the Repub
lican prospects In November. Tbe
prompters of this movement are near
ly all supportors of. Lowden, Watson
or Curtis, and they are headed by M.
J. Tobln of Vinson; fpwa. Talk con
tinued of having thousands of farmers
marcb on the convention, but tbe fact
that real agriculturists are mlghfy busy
with their harvesting at this time led
to the belief that there would be
mace farm .politicians than -formers In
the proposed demonstration.
Naturally the Demherats were tak
ing advantage of the situation, and
Jesus Janes -Jasued an Invitation to
the farawm to bring thair troubles to
the Houston convention. "We Invite
them to -Houston to help write thst
platform, .(fsnw. relief), and wp will
Invite them -to Washington to help
ess the legislation thqt affects tram,"
said. Tot-innately there-1? a bet

people, not of the privileged claw.

Democratic platform builders realise
that the party declaration on farm re
lief ?now overshadows In Importance

leaders are also conilderlng the ad
visability of selecting a middle west

this honor are Gilbert Hitchcock of
Nebraska, Governor Rulnw of South
Dakota, Senator Hnwes of Missouri
