representatives of the people in Congress wben it involves neglect of a public, duty places the responsibility of such neeiect upon
the Executive himself. The condition ot the public treasury, as has been indicated, demands the immediate consideration of
Congress. It alone has the power to provide revenues for the country.
Not to convene under sucti circumstances 1 can view in no other sense than the neglect of a plain duty. Ido not sympathize
with the sentiment that Congress in session is dangerous to our general business interest. Its members are the agents of the peo
ple, and their presence at the seat of Government in the execution of the sovereign will should not operate as an injury but a ben
efit. There could be no better time to put the Government upon a sound financial and economic basis than now. The people
have only recently voted that this should be done, and nothing is more binding UDon the agents of their will than the
obligation of immediate action. It has always seemed to me that the postponement of the meeting of Congress until
more than a year after it has been chosen deprives Congress too often of the inspiration of the popular will and tue
country of the corresponding benofits. It is evident, therefore, to postpone action in the presence of so great a necessity would be
unwise on the part of the Executive, became unjust to the interests of the people. Our action will now be freer from partisan
views than if the tariff question was postponed until the regular session of Coneress. We are nearly two years from a Congres
sional election and politics cannot nearly so distract us as if the election was immediately pending. We can approach the problem
calmly and patriotically without fearing its effects upon an early election. Our fellow-citizens who may disa^rae with us upon
the character of this legislation prefer to have the question settled now, even against the preconceived views— and perhaps set
tled so reasonably, I trust and believe it will, as to insure gr'^at permanence— than to have further uncertainty menacing the vast
and varied interests of the United States. Again, whatever action Congress may take will be. given a fair opportunity for trial
before the people are called to pass judgment, and this I consider a great essential to the rightful settlement of the question. In
view of tbete considerations I shall deem it my duty as President to convene Congress in extra session on Monday, the 15th day of
In conclusion I congratulate the country udoh the fraternal spirit of the people and on the manifestations of good will every
where so apparent. The recent elections not only most fortunately demonstrated the obliteration of sectional or geographical
lines, but to some extent also the prejudices which for years have detracted our councils and marred our true greatness as a
Nation. The triumph of the peonle whosa verdict is carried into effect to-day is not tbe triumph of one section, nor wholly of
one party, but of all the sections and all the people. North and South no longer divide on the old lines, but upon principles and
policies, and in this fact surely every lover of the country can find cause for true felicitation. Let us rejoice in and cultivate
this spirit. It is ennobling and will be both a gain and blessing to our beloved country. It will be my constant aim to do noth
ing and permit nothinß to be done that will arrest or disturb this growing sentiment of unity and co-operation, this revival of
esteem and affiliation which now animates so many thouands in both the old antagonistic sections, and which I ehall cheer
fully do everything possible to promote and increase.
Let me aeain repeat the words of the oath administered by the Chief Justice, which, in their respective spheres, so far
as practicable, I would have all my Countrymen observe: "I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States,
and will, to the best of my ability, preseive, protect and defend the constitution of the United States."
This is tbe obligation I have reverentially taken befora the Lord most high. To keep it will be my single purpose, my
constant prayer, and I shall confidently rely upon the forbearance and assistanca of all the psopla in the discharge of my solemn

She appeared to take a lively interest in
the scene, occasionally leaning over the

assemblage. Many of the other occupants
of the diplomatic galleries were ladies and
families of the Ministers and attaches.

That was immediately followed by the

The next to enter were the Chief Justice

WEYLER REACHES HAVANA.
His Return Probably Due to the Change
in Administration at Wash
HAVANA, CrBA, March 4.— Captain-
General Weyler arrived here at 3 o'clock
this afternoon on the transport Legasepi,
from Caibarien, province of Santa Clara.
He was accompanied by the members of
The arrival of the party wan not ex
pected so soon and when the tignals on
Morro Castle announced that the Legasep'
was to the eastward, bound in, the news
spread rapidly and caused somewhat of a
sensation among the Spaniards, who could
not imagine why tha Captain-General
should have hurried to reach Havana.
General Weyler Janded at the Muelte de
Calabria, which is only a short dislance
from the palace. Here he was received
by the Marquis de Ahumada, who has
been acting in his stead during his ab
sence, and other authorities.
Tuere was no great crowd present and
the scene was vastly different from that
which characterized his return from the
pacification of the province of Pinar
del Rio. Instead of riding through
crowds of cheering admirers he walked
from the waterside to the palace, where
he soon retired to hi-* apartments without
having received any popular welcome.
This was due perhaps to his unexpected
arrival which did not allow of any official
preparations being made to welcome him.
No reason is eiven for General Weyler's
return to Havana*
It is well known that his campaign in
Matauzas and Santa Clara has been an
ignominious failure, and while he was
claiming to have compelled the insur
gents to retreat eastward to Puerto Prin
cipe, they had, in fact, dodged past his
columns and pursued their way westward.
It is thought that the change in admin
istration in Washington may have much,
if not all, to do with his return, as he has
been led to believe ihat President McKin
ley will not sanction the illegal arrest and
detention of American citiz?n!>, which in
many cases passed without protest from
the Cleveland Government.

WASHINGTON, D. C, March 4.— When
the House was called to order at 8:30 a. m.
but two members, Dalzell (R.) of Penn
sylvania and Dcckery (D.) of Missouri,
were present, although a few others strag
gled in shortly after.
The enrollment of the sundry civil bill
was announced. The time intervening lor
an hour or two was passed in practical re
cess, waiting for the S?nate to report its
action on the deficiency bill.
At 10:30 a message was received from
the Senate announcing ita action on the
deficiency and labor bills.
Phillips (R.) of Pennsylvania, author of
the latter measure, moved that the HoU3e
agree with the Senate amendment, winch
Dingley (R.) of Maine offered the cus
tomary resolution, which was agreed to,
to appoint a committee of three to wait
upon the President and inform him that
Congress had completed its labors, and
it was ready to adjourn sine die, unless
he had something further to communi
cate to it.
The Speaker appointed as such commit
tee Dalzell (R.) of Pennsylvania, Grosve
nor (R.) of Ohio and Sayers (D.) of Texas,
the author of the resolution asking to be
excused from service.
The history of the negotiations between
the House and the S.nate on the defi
ciency bill was recalled to the House by
Cannon (R. ) of Illinois for the purpose of
showing why the House conferees would
not consent to the insertion in the bill of
the appropriation to pay the Bowman and
other claims added by the Senate. He
said it was the belief of the conferees, and
he hoped it would be the policy of the
House, that ihe-^e bills should be confined
to appropriations for meeting the current
expenses of the Government and to pay
legal claims. [Applause.]
The amount involved in the items of dif
ference was about $3,0u0,000. The con
ference report was agreed to.
The chair announced the appointment
of Northway (R.) of Ohio as a member of
the joint committee to investigate the
charities of the District of Columbia in
place of Blue (R.) of Kansas.
Cannon moved that the House further
insist upon its disagreement to the re
maining items in difference. Bingham
(R ) of Pennsylvania demanded a separate
voie upon each amendment, the effect of
which was to keep the bill before the
House to the exclusion of other matters.
At 11:30 Dalzeil (R.) of Pennsylvania,
from the committee appointed to visit the
President and notify him that Congress
was ready to adjourn Bine die, reported
that the committee had been unable to
discharge the duty devolving upon it, for
the reason that when the members
reached the White House the President
had already departed for the Capitol.
Bingham withdrew his motions for a sepa
rate vote, and at 11:40 Cannon's moiion to
further disagree and con pent to a confer

a moment while Dockery announced the

Miss Lucille Scott Gives Lively Evidence
in the Idaho Bribery
BOISE, Idaho, March 4.— Things are
getting quite interesting in the Idaho Sen
atorial bribery cases. Miss Lucille Scott
testified before the committee of investi

her he wanted to go home with $3000 or

out of it.
Miss Scott also testified that she had
overheard a conversation in a railroad
eoacli between Representative George A.
Williams and a lumber - dealer of La
Grande County, whose name she had for
gotten, in which Williams said that there
was crookedness in the election of Heit
feld and gave the names of a number of
legislators, including Joines, Perkins and
McCarthy, who liad received money for
their votes, and that one legislator had
been paid $1700. The witness said she
was working in the interest of Dubois, and
that Perkins had said he could help her
and that his vote was worth $300 anyway.
H. 8. Wooley, she testified,' told her he
bad $12,000 which he could give her if sue
would secure twelve voles for any man to
defeat Dubois, and she mentioned to him
the names of nine legialators whom she
thought she could handle. Vie Bier
