The ways and means committee then prepared to report t resolution for, passage Un the house some time tonight, providing for the bond issue. They were hopeful that the senate would accept it later, thus' insuring that the extra fund would be pro vided without endangering the nav.,1 bill or violating the constitutional stipulation that such authorizations must pass the house first.

SITUATION UP IN THE AIR (from a Staff Correapondsnt.) Washington, March 2. (Special Telegram.) According to those near est ilu president, the "guess", is that an extra, session "will not' be called before May, provided the president is given substantial authority to do the things, he.-as asked for, as far as armed neutrality goes. The president is looking at the call ing of an extra session of congress with grave doubt. ThV vote between the two great parties is so close that its a litty-fjfty bet which side organ ires the house in the Sixty-fifth con gress. Then Michael F. Conroy, democrat, of New York City, is gravely ill and if he should succumb td hist illness and the call had gone out for an extra session, and no election in the Fifteenth ' New York district had been held, the republicans ' would easily organize the next house. v It seems reasonable, therefore, that the president will defer the convening of congress until the early summer, yet contingencies may arise so that he would like to have congress in ses sion at once.
