WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 29,—
The longest extraordinary session in
the history of Congress practically
ended today and the regular session
will begin at noon next Monday. Dem-
ocratic leaders, acting in concert with
President Wil6on, would not permit an
actual finish to be written to the spe-
cial session, although the House ad-

Two great projects have held the at-
tention of Congr</;s and the country
throughout the unprecedented work of
the year. One of these, tariff re-
vision, crystallized into law in Sep-
tember. The othjr, currency reform,
still is the chief subject of legislative
interest, and will remain so until dis-
posed of in the regular session.
The extra session, opening a month after
the Democratic forces took complete con-
trol of the Government, began with a re-
organization of party leadership la the
Senate which overthrow precedent ami
brought the so-called Progressive force.-.
Into control and tbrougnout the contests
on tariff and currency the session has
teen marked by solidification of the Dem-
NIGHT SESSIONS PROMISED.
Demnnds of the regular Democratic lead-
ers that the currency bill be paused at
once brings the extra session to a stirring
ciose. Day and night sessions of the Dern-
ecratlc currency conference have marked
the last week and day and night sessions
of the Senate nre promised for the new
session until currency legislation is cou-
Although President Wilson urged the
Congress Just closing to hold Itself to the
two chief projects, tariff and currency,
several other matters of general Importance
have been considered.
One important legislative set was the so-
cnlied Newlunda law for mediation and
conciliation in labor disputes. Under this
enrctinent Federal arbitrators were able to
overt the threatened strike of the train-
men on Eastern railroads last summer
which threatened to tie up American com-
merce and industry for iin indefinite time.
The abolishment of tha United States
Commerce Court also was accomplished
through an amendment to the deficiency
appropriation bill. Another appropriation
bill "rider" took out of the classified civil
service most of the deputy United States
marshals and deputy collectors of Internal
revenue. Exemption of labor unions from
rosecutlon uuder the anti trust laws, so
'ar as certain funds were concerned, also
Many Important legislative acts were em-
braced in the tariff bill, In the form of
amendments, These Included prohibitions
against the Importation of feathers of
birds, a step loug demanded by bird pro-
tection societies, and a special rebate on
goods brought In In American ships, an
act designed to encourage American ship
building and to strengthen the American
COTTON TAX FAILS.
The long fight over the proposed tax
on cotton futures to prevent "cotton gam-
bling*' failed In the final developments
prior to the passage of the tariff btl. The
cotton tux subject was so thoroughly dis-
cussed, however, und the advocates of It
come to such nn understanding that it Is
expected that it measure to regulate trad
iug In futures will be passed before the
new session ends.
Many Lilts which underwent preliminary
preparation in the committee rooms will
be pushed to conclusion in the new Con-
gress. These include the "seamen's servi-
tude bill," which passed the Senate; the
Hetch 1 tetchy bill to grant Sun Francisco
water supplies rates In that valley, which
passed the House and Is to be voted on by
the Senate December 0, and the Alaskan
railroad bill, which the Seaate has agreed
to lake up In December.
The AlaSkun measure would provide for
government railroads that would morn
adequately open Alaska's resources.
Tie Investigating activities of the special
session were confined chiefly to the prob-
ing of lobbying activities and to the In-
quiry Into causes and conduct of the strike
In the West Virginia coal fields. The spe-
cial commlttees that conducted these In-
vestigations have not completed their work

WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 29—
An elaborated anti-high cost of living
bill, not only to restrict cold storage
of food, but to penalize agreements
for storage, pooling, division of terri-
tory, interference with competition or
other restraint of trade in foodstuffs,
was introduced today by Representa-
tive McKellar of Tennessee.
The new bill, which will be urged tin
mediately before the House Commerce
Committee, would make the maximum
period of storage on beef or Its products
seven months; veal, two months; pork,
four months; sheep or goats, four months;
lambs or kids, three months; poultry and
game, three mouths; fish, two mouths;
eggs, three months to six mouths, with
inspection; butter, three mouths. The bill
proposes that cold storage articles must
be labeled with the dates of production,
killing, parking or manufacturing, and
period of storage. It would bar thrawlng
out cold storage products, would have
regulations Issued by the Department of
Agriculture and provide other precautions.
Representative MacKellar h;i» recently
conferred frequently with Attorney General
Me Reynolds on the cost of living problem
and Is understood to have furnished some
Information which Department of Justice
agents now are Investigating In their
pursuit of an alleged cold storage com-
bination. It was generally Inferred al the
Capitol that Ills new bill, which Is dif-
ferent than some of his others has at
least the tacit approval of the Attorney
After providing against long storage of
foodstuffs, the bill provides that packers
of meat, poultry, butter nnd eggs and all
cold storage concerns must furnish to the
Government dally statements of goods on
hand, shipments, receipts and deliveries,
in violation of which fines ranging from
$100 to $1,0011 or prison sentences not ex-
ceeding five years may be imposed
