cation, leaving behind a series of j
investigations to proceed during the
Both houses adjourned until
Thursday, January when war leg
islation is to take the forefront of
the calendar.
In the last day's business the sen
ate took final action toward submis
sion to the states of a national pro
hibition amendment to the constitu
tion, ordered two new investigations
-into railroad legislation and the
merchant ship building situation
and arranged for disposal of the coal

The house passed the resolution to
remove doubt as to application 01
the new war excess profits taxes to
congressmen and arranged for re
newal of the battle for woman suff
rage, January 10.
To Probe Railroads.
Efforts to rush through legislation
authorizing the treasury to buy
$100,000,000 of farm loan bonds be
fore the adjournment failed. The
senate passed the bill today, but it
was held up in the house to be con
sidered when congres serassembles.
During the recess a half dozen of
invstigations into war activities will
be in progress. Heading the list is
the railroad inquiry.
An address by President Wilson
with his recommendations for solu
tion of the problem is expected soon
after congress reconvenes. Senator
Borah today failed in an effort to
hold congress in session for consid
eration of the transportation ques
tion, a motion to "reconsider the ad
journment plan being defeated.
Several Other Invest witions.
Other investigations, in addition
to those of railroad problems and the
ship building situation, deal with
army and navy war operations, the
sugar and fuel shortages and the al
leged disloyal St. Paul speech of
Senator La Follette.
Some of the congressional commit
tees will work during the holiday
period on the enormous appropria
tion bills under preparation and oth
er legislation, including water power
and other natural resource develop

An Italian with a Gondola, or a
Hottentot with a Mud Scow, would
do a good business here at this time,
the streets which are in the main
kept nice and neat, could be im
proved with a good flushing clearing
away the dirt and coal dust which
has settled since the snow fell. The
Christmas shoppers add to the work
of the ones who care for the stores,
by being compelled to carry in the
mud and dirt from the pavements.
It never rains but it pours is the
saying, and that seems to be the
case, in respect to the matter of the
taxi service in this city. Some time
there is, or has been in the past no
one at the trains, and those who de
sire the service, complain because of
its absence. Now we have four cars
at the stations at every train, and
with not enough business for each
to have a little. Q. K. Parmele
