House to Swear in New
President's Message Won't
Be Read Before
Very Littlo Business Likely "to Be
Transacted Before Hext
"WASHINGTON, Dec. 4. Little in tho
way of legislative business Is expected
the first week of the session of Con
gress. Monday, the first day, will be
devoted to calling the roll and swearing
In new members who have been elected
to fill vacancies. Tho usual committee
will be appointed to inform the Presi
dent that Congress Is in session and the
resolution notifying the Senate that a
quorum of the House Is ready for busi
ness will be passed. Tuesday the Presi
dent's message will" be read, but it Is
rot expected that any other business
will be transacted.
There are a number of minor matters
of legislation that may be considered on
"Wednesday and on Thursday, as no
special order has been made for con
sideration of any general measure. It
is possible that the legislative, execu
tive and Judicial appropriation bill may
be reported Wednesday or Thursday.
Friday is pension day and there will
be more than a thousand private pen
sion bills ready for the House to con
sider. Early adjournments each day are ex
pected during the first week, in order
to give time to shape the session's busl
nesa Objection may be Interposed against
administering the oath of office to J.
Thomas Heflin, elected to fill the va
cancy caused by the death of Represen

WHAT SENATE WILL DO.
Assembles, Then Adjourns in Mem-,
ory of Senators Hoar and Quay.
WASHINGTON, Dec 4. The first act
of the Senate, convening tomorrow, will
be one of respect to the- memory of two
distinguished Senators Senator Quay
and Senator Hoar. Adjournment for the
day will follow at once and will post
pone receipt of tho President's annual
message until Tuesday. That document
will be received early Tuesday and very
little, if any, further business beyond
its reading and the Introduction into
office of Knox of Pennsylvania nnd
Crane of Massachusetts will be under
taken that day. For tho remainder of
tho week exceedingly brief sessions are
expected. On Thursday adjournment
will be taken until the following Mon
day. Senator Lodge will press the House
bill for the Philippines Government as
soon as it la possible to get that meas
ure before the Senate, and he has an
nounced his Intention not to brook op
position to Its consideration. The bill
has the vast advantage of being on the
calendar as unfinished business, so that
It cannot easily be displaced. It Is not
probable, however, that Mr. Lodge now
will attempt more with reference to it
than to give notice of his Intention to
press its adoption.
Before the close of the session last
spring, Sonator Hoar gave notice that
on next Tuesday he would call up the
bill providing means for the protection
of the President, but owing to the
death of the Senator, consideration of
the bill will be deferred for some time
Senator Heyburn gave notice last ses
sion that he would call up the pure
food bill next Tuesday, but whllo It is
generally understood that he will press
that question at alt proper times, it is
believed he will not make serious ef
forts to proceed with it during the first
few days of tho session. Another meas
ure which probably will bo taken up
early In the session Ib the bill for ad
mission ul- the four southwestern Terri
tories as U-& States.
Nothing more than preliminary work,
howfr, can be done on any of these
blllsn the first week.
It Is- expected that the Republican
steering committee will give attention
to the order of business early In the
session, with a view to general legisla
tion before the appropriation bills begin
to arrive from the House of Represen
tatives. Attention will be given to fill
ing committee vacancies caused by tho
deaths of Senators Hanna, Hoar and
Quay, but the disposition seems to bo
opposed to doing more In that direction
at present than to passing to Senator
Piatt of Connecticut the chairmanship
of the Committee on Judiciary, which
place will go to him by virtue of se
niority. Monday will be characterized as usual
by the attendance of a largo number of'
spectators and a liberal display of flow
ers on the desks of Senators.

WASHINGTON, Dec 4.-Scnator Halo.
of Maine, has declared himself as Immov-
ably In favor of tho "stand pat" policy, J
and against revision of tho tariff. jJ
"I do not proposo to let this be done,"
he said, "except in tho face of all the
.opposition to it which I can help to mus-
tor. Tho election was remarkable In tho H
oxtent of the Republican triumphs, and,
as It Is not unusual in such Cases, somo
Question has arisen whether tho party
shall enjoy the fruits of Its victory. It Is
no rare thing, after a political battle has
been won, to find tho week sisters coming
in and urging the successful party to low-
cr Its colors, and In whole or In part give
up what It has won. If
Lessons Are Plain.
"Tho lessons of tho election arc plain IH
enough to read. Both the Republican par- IH
ty nnd the President were In high favor IH
with tho people. Tho President's Individ-
uallty was a strong clement In Increasing IH
Republican majorities everywhere. He IH
helped the tlckot In every State and thous- IH
ands of Democrats voted for him who 1
have not beforo been, and novcr will be 1
Republicans. As for tho poor gentleman IH
at Esopus, who was not in it at all, he IH
was a good Judge and a good lawyer, but IH
ho ncvfr succeeded In arousing nny in-
truest with the American people. IH
Party Position Impregnable.
"But beyond all this the Republican po- H
sltlon nnd the issues which the party IH
maintained, not only commanded popular IH
support, but those issues were advanced
and upheld in Just as bold and courageous
fashion as wore the words and acts of the
President. Tho position of the party on
three great issues the protective tariff,
tho currency nnd the handling of over
grown, dictatorial and oppressive trusts
wa3 simply impregnable. Every attack by
the Democrats on theso positions -touch-ing
any of theso great issues met with
disgraceful defeat, and, when the Amcri- IH
-can people awoke on tho morning after
selection and knew its results, they had a
right to expect and assume that tho policy
of the party on these three great questions
had bo?n settled and would be so con
sldercd during the next four years of ad- IH
Would Disrupt the Party. jH
"I do not look to sco any movement on
the part of the administration, cither for
tariff revision or for any form of reel
procity that will glvo away tho benefits
of trade, which are now in our favor, with
any country whatever."
"Do you bollevo that the President Is
Inclined to favor a revision of the tariff?"
Mr. Hale was asked.
"1 have no information as to the PresI
dent's feelings or Intentions," he replied.
"He stands today as the representative
not of the grumblers and the critics of IH
the party, Inside Its Hues, but of tho great
masses who havo expressed their co.nfi
deuce In him and In the party and Its IH
principles. The President is no novice
In politics. Ills observation Is both keen
and wise. In this hour of its triumph, I
do not think the party need fear that ho
will do anything to weaken or disrupt It,
and nny attempt at tariff revision will cor
tnlnly do both. IH

"Wo canhavo no partial or piecemeal
revision on the tariff. Whenever It is un
dertaken it will go to the bottom. You
cannot repair a tariff bill ns you would
sharpen a blunt pencil or a dull razor
Should the President follow the advice of
the few revisionists who are now making
so much noise, he will at once find two
things before him; First, the Democratic
party will be solidly with him. clamoring
for revision and for all the free trade It
can get out of it; second, ho will find fac
ing him a divided party, with the most
of its leaders and the great masses of the
people bitterly hostile to any such move

Tariff Is Not Perfect.
"If you ask me whether the present tar
Iff Is perfect In all Its details, tho answer jH
Is easy enough that, of course. It is not.
J3ut tho good In it is so prevailing nnd its
results have been so beneficial and Its IH
strength with the pcoplo Is so trcmondoun IH
that its smaller defects weigh nothing
compared with tho disasters that would
follow any attempt to open the question. "
Owing to Hale's pronounced stand, tho IH
attitude of Speaker Cannon Is looked upon IH
with Increased Interest. While tho Speak
er Is known as a "stand patter," It is
ulgnlficant that ho has not yet put him
