Congress had not passed all regular appropriation bills so that department would have money to spend beginning July 1 With the War and Interior Departments' bills still unpassed, the Senate adopted a "continuing resolution" the same rate as last year, then House and Senate leisurely went about the business of passing the permanent appropriation bills.
