The House will convene at 11 o'clock today, when the Speaker and his forces will exert every effort to sidetrack the loan order for a plan which would have the $4,000,-000 come from the $13,000,000 bond issue already enacted. Showdown Today There are comparatively few matters remaining for consideration end it is agreed that the only obstacle is the new bond issue bilL Pres Moran of the Senate has gone so far as to discuss the hour of final adjournment, raying that he is opposed to night proceedings on the day of prorogation, but will hold the Senate in session until 7 o'clock if the work can be completed by that hour. On the other hand it is known that Gov Curley is prepared to hold the Legislature for an indefinite period if the $4,000,000 bill, which is understood to be acceptable to him, is defeated. But in face of this Speaker Saltonstall unhesitatingly expresses hope that the bill will be killed.

SENATE PASSES ELEVATED BILL Would Let City Borrow $12,000,000 Sams Body Balked Last Week at Smaller Sum . The Massachusetts Senate, by a vote of 19 to 16, yesterday ordered to a third reading the bill enabling Boston to borrow $12,000,000 outside the debt lirryt and use that sum, together with $10,000,000 which it is hoped the Federal Government will contribute, to tear down the Boston Elevated structure from Sullivan sq to Dudley st and construct a subway in place of it. The Senate afterwards suspended its rule and passed the bill to be engrossed, so that it may be taken up by the House today.

Hopson tonight took on certain comic opera trappings, toned down by contemplation of a possible Senate contempt citation against the finally located utilities magnate. The stiff-arming of a Senate lobby investigator as he sought to serve -a subpena on the rotund chief stockholder of the Associated Gas and Electric System precipitated the trouble. Aroused members of the Senate Investigating Committee quickly gathered testimony that Chairman O'Connor, Dem, of New York, of the House Lobby Probing Committee had arranged for police protection of the will o' the wisp utilities man when he finally appeared today as a House witness.

The rescue workers, troops and police, who were rushed with supplies to the stricken area from the city of Alessandria, said they could compute no definite toll of the dead until daylight. Scores of injured were given emergency treatment at hospitals and first aid stations and others, made homeless by the sudden .flood, spent the night in makeshift shelters.
