This Week of Congress-
Wasuinotox, Jan. 29. The educa

of the senate for to-touiorrow. It is
likely it will give place temporarily to
the house bill making appropriations for

week it will probably be succeeded by
the undervaluation or dependent pension
bills. The urgent deficiency bill will bc-
reportpd to the house in the beginning of
the week and will probably occupj' the
attention for a day or two. The Wil-
kins notional bank bill stands first in the
order of unfinished business, but if Wil-
kins remains ill, it will probably give
way to resolution assigning an unlimited
period of time for the consideration of a
large number of bills for the erection of
