WORK OF CONGRESS BROUGHT TO CLOSE 1 Much Was Accomplished Dur- Ing Session---0ver Billion Appropriated. WASHINGTONAfter a final day of double pressure, congress adjourn- ed Saturday night until December with a remarkable record of work and all factions claiming the greater part of the credit The president's annual message cov- ered the whole legislative field. The program which he especially urged contained about 18 measures, of which six were adopted. The regulars claim credit for everything done that was mentioned in his message. The in- surgents and democrats see the re- sulfa far differently. The railroad bill, the main issue of the session, as adopted, bore practically no semb- lance to the original Taft-Wickersham bill, the insurgents claiming that the president had nothing left of it but the commerce court. The great bulk of the work was done in the last month, and a very im- portant part during the last week. In the early half of the session the house was not industrious and the senate did practically nothing at all. A Billion Dollars proprlated. More than a billion dollars was ap- proprlatod, if continuing appropria- tions are incorporated in the totals of the general appropriation measures. Insofar as e figures could be obtain- ed from measures which underwent changes in the last hours of the sea- .siGn, the total of the appropriations, exclusive of continuing appropriat/ons, was $894,086,943. The amount of the continuing ap- propriations for the last fiscal year was about $16@,00,000. It is safe to 6ay hat it will not be less for the next fiscal year, an the grand total there- fore will aggregate at least $1,054,- 000,000. Not the least conspicuous acts of congress were the strenuous mea- sures taken by the house of represen- tatives to reform its system of con- ducting business, ao that less power might be reposed in the speaker and the organization of which he was the natural leader. Railway Bill Takes Time. More time was consumed in consid- ering the railroad bill than was taken by all other subjects of legislation. This measure not only creates a com- merce court, but embodies power for a committee to inquire in stock and bond issues of railroads, extends the provision of the interstate commerce act to telegraph and telephone com- panies and gives the interstate com- merce commission power to suspend increases in rates until the commis- sion has found the reason for such in- creases. Under the withdrawal act almost unlimited power was given to the president to withhold lands from set- tiement and to conserve water power. On the other hand, the act providing for the agricultural entry of the sur- face of coal lands will open to Httla- ment at least 60,000,000 acres, but will .reHrve to the government the right to the cold.

The robbers drove from Ogden in a buggy, with which they made their escape. They stopped the train by placing railroad torpedoes on the track. When the engineer brought the train to a stop the head brakeman went forward to ascertain the cause of the delay, and was struck over the head. with a revolver by one of the robbers. He was then taken at the point of a gun o the express car and I compelle to call to the messenger to open the door. As soon as the door was opened one of the bandits crawled in and commanded the mes- senger to open the safe. After rifling the safe he robbers turned their at- tention to the coaches. Although there were nearly 100 pas- sengers on the train, every one of whom lost something, the conductor estimated the total losses at less than $00. The officials of the Amer- ican Express Company state that the robbers secured less than $500.
