Washington, Sept' 8. The lirs't
session qf the Sixty-fourth congress,
which adjourns today, was concerned
chiefly with national defense.
When the gavel fell congress had
directed reorganization and equip
ment of the army and navy defense
of the country at the unprecedented
cost of $655,000,000 with authoriza
tions that will Increase the total in
three years to nearly $800,000,000.
With all other expenditures, appro
priations were brought to the grand
total of $1,637,583,682, the greatest
aggregate in the country's history and
exceeding that for the last fiscal year
by more than a billion dollars. :

paredness and the calling into action Uim, canneries and other establish-
of military forces to meet the Mexi
can emergency demanded revenue
legislation in the closing days of the
session. Congress responded by
doubling the normal tax on incomes,
creating an inheritance tax, munitions
tax and miscellaneous excise taxes to
raise $205,000,000 and by directing sale
of $130,000,000 Panama canal bonds.
New Board and Commissions.
Congress established a tariff com
mission; a government ship-building
board1 to rehabilitate the American,
merchant marines a Workman's Com
pensation commission to administer
a new uniform compensation law;. a
farm loan banking system; a child
labor law; enlarged the system of
self-government- in the -Philippines
and enacted many other important
laws which had been contemplated
by the administration.
The session was disturbed throuah-
out by frequently recurring threats of
foreign complications from the
European war and imminence at one
time of diplomatic break with
Germany; interference with American
mails land commerce, ' invasion of
American soil and killing by Mexi
can bandits, and danger of actual war
with Mexico. , . . , ;

The crisis in comrress over the
international, situation followed Ger
many's naval order to sjnk armed
belligerent merchant I snips witnout
warning. - Introduction . oi resolu
tions warning Americans to keep off
armed merchantmen caused Presi
dent Wilson to halt diplomatic nego
tiation and go to the capitol to. de
mand t showdown. The result was
tabling of the Gore resolution in the
senate by vote of 68 to 14 on March
3,. and of the McLemore resolution
in the house by voje'of 276 to 142
March 7. Immediately afterward
the president sent to Germany and
read to congress a note theratcning
to sever diplomatic relations Unless
the German government "immedi
ately effected a modification of its
methods fii submarine warfare.." ,
Later in tne session trouoie arose
in the senate over the nomination1 of
Louis D. Brandeis of Boston to suc
ceed the late Justice Lamar aa a
member of the supreme court. Weeks
of investigation and deliberation' by
the judiciary committee ended in con
firmation of Mr. Brandeis by large
majority. ' ."
' Held Up by Labor Troubles. "
' In the week bfore adjournment

lation which prevented threatened

officials oi-the railroads and railroad
brotherhoods, submitted the contro
versy to congress, recommending
legislation to prevent the strike and to
prevent such emergencies from arising
in W1Q. mime . . ... . - i
After a week of consideration, dur
ing which the president visited the
capitol daily, conferring with adminis
tration leaders, a bill was passed to
