the necessity for increased revenues,
Stood out as the most Important
event of the week,
Owing to the difficulty of reorgsnislng
the house committees because of the
Breetly increased minority, congress could
not ret down to actual business. Minor

Tuesday, and little can be done before
Saturday, when congress plans to adjourn
until January for the Chiiatmaa holidays.

Immediately It was diecloeed that this
would be Impossible, and administration
leaders were confronted with the danger
that the war tax law would lap on

follow la which no emergency revenue
could be collected.
It waa thereupon agreed by houa lead
era that a Joint reeolution extending the
present war tax with the time limita

new bill with provisions for Increased
revenues to be submitted after the new

agreed to offer no oppoaltlon to such

WASHINGTON, Dec. lt-There
were so development today to al
leviate the serious situation that
threatens a rupture of diplomatic: re
lations between the United Btatee
Officials continued studiously ret
icent, but word that the American
note, on the sinking- of the Italian
liner Ancona with loss of American
Uvea, had reached the Vienna for
eign office yesterday, led to a feeling
that the question would resolve It
self one way or the other without
Wsad Fresnpt aetloa.
Th communication la understood to
ask disavowal of the act of the Austrian
submarine, which sank the liner, punish
ment of the submarine commander, and
reparation for the American live lost.
and It has been clearly Indicated that the
United State expect that theae thing
be don promptly. Thar will be no
lengthy discussion of ths principle in
volved. It Is said, such as waa conducted
vKa Germany after the Lusltania trag

be given cut for publication In morning

Baroa Zwtedinek, charge ot th Austrian
embassy here, by Secretary Lansing, and
it is understood the two discussed th
situation briefly and Informally.
It waa said th talk merely waa Inci
dental, the charge having called at the
State department to explain how h cam
to writ a letter to th Austro-Hungarian
conaul-general at New Tork early In th
war, auggestlng that passport o neu

Baroa Zwiedlnek explained that when
he wrote the letter he we a subordinate
official of the embassy, then In charge
ef Dr. Conetantln Dumba, alno recalled.
It could not be ascertained whether th
explanation waa satisfactory.
It waa apparent tonight that officials
who hav read the note to Austria viewed
the situation a serious, the opinion pre
vailing as strongly as ever that diplo
matic relations were In danger of beta
