BENDER I'nited Pres St.ill C-rreH|M>n<lenl. Washington, May 4.—With a tremendous emergency war program just ahead congressional leaders settled down to a fight today to adjourn by June 1. After two days' of discussion of the embargo section in the espionage bill Senator Overman in charge of the measure declared if the senate did not "get down to cases" today he would move for night sessions from now on. If adjournment is to be in rom* plished by June 1 it is admitted that there will have to be day and night sessions most ot the time' from now on.

Thts news may be summarized as follows: "Bad feeling is growing between Prussia and Austria. Emperor Karl is spurred on to friction with Germany by Hungary's open discontent. Hungary's ruling classes are said to be fearful of anarchy unless some hope of peace is shown to her people Persistent reports reach here that there is a growing feeling in Germany that the submarine warfare bas not been productive of the results anticipated. The city of Hamburg with it's vast shipping industries, is said now to be approving the course of the foreign office in opposing the submarine war at the time that ruthlessness was first agitated. It's approval was based on the belief that such a course had only succeeded in increasing the indemnities which Germany must later pay and ln drawing America into the conflict. Germany's commercial prospects it was held, have been injured (or years to come. Retention of the Belgian city of Antwerp by Germany is another thing featured by Hamburg, resulting in the well defined demand by shipping industries, that there be no annexation of territory by Germany —and, more over, that Germany so announce right now. IS READY TO AID ROOSEVELT Hy United Press. Chicago, May 4.—Chicago wants to be flrst city to raise a regiment for Colonel Roosevelt's volunteer expedition to France and has wired the colonel to that effect. Even though official sanction for the venture has not been granted by congress, plans are being laid for a whirlwind campaign when the call is issued. Thus far no reply has been received from Roosevelt,, but Chicago already knows tbe answer. Wilson dictatorial powers in directing the production, distribution and prices of food and all other necessities of life during the war. It is even more drastic than the one submitted to congress by Secre-' tary of Agriculture Houston. Out of the food bill fight promises to arise two collateral contests around a prohibition bill to be introduced by Senator Gronna providing that no food stuffs be used in the manufacture of alcohol and various measures directed at food speculation. "One thing that sure Is going to come out of this food bill fight is some drastic law to prevent speculators from extorting high prices from the public," Senator Kenyon, father of an anti-speculative bill and member of the agriculture committee said today. "The only question is how drastic it will be. We are urging the farmer to Increase production but we can't expect bim to enthuse much when the speculator is fixing the prices ln order to hold up the public." That the senate is in the mood for violent action along thia line has been assured by. outbursts from every corner of the floor tn debate the last few days. Another fight ls certain to develop around the administration taxation hill. It ls expected this measure will get through the house within a week but unless there are night sessions the senate will not be able to dispose of it quickly. There will be no trouble about the general appropriation bill, the army appropriation bill which ls now ready for re-lntroductlon nor the navy increase bill. The drastic shipping bill, coming up from the white house soon may develop a snarl, but for the most, part, both houses are ready to give the president all the power he wants within the limits of the constitution. The conscription bill was before the house and senate army conferees today. The principal differences— age limits tor the draft, and the question of sending the Roosevelt division to France—are expected to be ironed out within a few days. Its re-passage will not take long, and the congressional slate will then be practically clean. Washington, May 4.—Senate and house conferees agreed Thursday night on the army appropriation bill,, carrying about $280,000,000 for the t support of the regular establishment! ♦ for the fiscal year ending in June,!♦ 1918, and on the military academy * bill. Today they will take up thej'*' war army draft bill, with the hope!'*' of returning it for tinal actio- be-!* fore the end and the week. . The only serious differences between the conferees on the appro-' prlation measure was over a senate i amendment authorizing an increase i in the army genera! stair Trom *>. to' 91, and permitting all members to! be assigned to duty in Washington. Under the existing law, only alf the staff can be stationed here. The' house conferees accepted the section with a proviso that it should be ef-; fective only during the period of th. ' emergency. Conferees on the army bill today, agreed on a provision to pay $100 a month to men in training camps seeking to qualify as members of the officers' reserve corps. A $15 increase in the pay of all the enlisted men of the navy during the war was agreed upon today by the house naval committee. As an amendment to the naval bill it equalizes the enlisted pay of the army and the navy. Father Sherman went his illustrious pater one better today. "This war." be declared, is so bad that ir my father were alive he would owe an apology to hell." Father Sherman is in the recruiting business just at present—but not soldiers of war. He is seeking workers for the great farms of the northwest. ************ By H. B. ROBERTSON. I'nited Press (ori-es|M>mleiit.
