CALL Oil PRESIDENT, OYSTER BAT, I U August 14. Financial ' legislation and other work of the proposed extraordinary session of Congress were discussed today by the President and his callers, who Included Secretary Shaw, Senator Cul-lom and Comptroller of the Currency Ridgely. Considerable opposition has developed to the idea of calling the extra session in October. The point is made that many Senators and Representatives will be engaged during October In their State campaigns and that it would be politically unwise for them to leave their States at such a time. It was announced that no definite conclusion regarding the date of the extraordinary session had been reached. . - ;. .. . . AFRO-AMERICAN LEAGUE.

Both houses of Parliament assembled today to wind up the business of the session. - In the Bouse of Commons, several questions were asked relating to matters of International interest - Premier Balfour in a general reply said there had been an unexpected delay In the Venezuelan question, which however, was not due to Great Britain or Germany, who had taken parallel action but to the fact that France and Spain objected to the use of the English language by the tribunal. . . - -' - The question had been left to the tribunal . Itself to decide. He believed that ; the court, whose members the Czar had been .requested to nominate, would meet on the date originally fixed. - Regarding the complaints that the Government was showing a lack of sympathy with Macedonia, Mr. Balfour pointed out that one of the deep sources of mischief was the dissensions among the Christians. It was not the Turk alone deep as his guilt undoubtedly was, who was responsible for the miserable conditions. ? It would be folly to forget that the Christians committed atrocities on Christians.. : The Government was still of the opinion that the best policy was to support the Austro-Russian endeavors to improve the administratlonw Dealing with the protests ' against puzzling the House on the fiscal condition, the Premier thought there was no necessity for undue hurry in discussing the matter. There was no pending fiscal question before Parliament, nor would there be one during the currency of the present Parliament. With a final fling from Winston Churchill, who seemed doubtful whether the present Parliament would meet again and who characterized the Premier's policy of transferring the 'fiscal discussion from "Parliament to the country as that of a demagogue, the sitting was suspended. Subsequently the House was summoned to the House of Lords to hear the King's speech prorouging Parliament read. The speech was of little general interest. The most interesting portion of the speech to America deals with Ireland. It says: 'The warm expressions of good will with which I was everywhere received touched me. My visit enabled me to realize how much was being attempted to improve the housing accommodation for the working ' population, stimulate commercial activity; advance the methods of agriculture, develop technical education and provide for the sick and infirm. Much remains to be done but It was with feelings of the deepest gratification that I noticed signs of increasing concord among all classes in Ireland, pFeaag-ing as I hope a new era of unitedCr forts for the general welfare." Y Referring to the Irish land bill, the speech says it offers inducements to the land owners to continue theirs res idence among their' countryme and provides facilities for improving the conditions of life in the poorer districts of the West. It adds: "This reform, by removing the ancient causes of social dissension, will, I heartily trust, conduce to the common belief of all my Irish subjects." Reference is made in the sneech to the general anxiety regarding the situ ation In the European, provinces of Turkey, to the great progress made In the work of re-settlement and pacification in South Africa and the improvement in the conditions of agriculture and finance in India. After the reading of the King's speech, Parliament was prorouged until November 2. There has probably never been a prorogation of Parlian-ent Which for the future of the Government was so uncertain as is the case of this occasion. Many ' believe there will be a dissolution in the autumn, though this information does not support this belief. Mr. Balfour speech at Sheffield at the end of September, is awaited with the keenest interest as it will contain a pronouncement of policy which will possibly force either the Duke of Devonshire, a pronounced free trader, or Colonial Secretary Chamberlain, to resign. . The members of Parliament will curtail their holidays the Free Food Leaguers in order to open the fiscal campaign as speedily as possible and the followers of Mr. Chamberlain to repel the attack.
