CONGRESS IS NOW
IN EXTRA SESSION
JOS. G . CANNON, OF ILLIONOIS, CHOSEN
The President's Message Was Short, Deal
ing Solely With the Cuban
The fifty-eighth congress con
vened in extraordinary session at
noon on Monda y, in accordance with
the proclamation of President Roose
velt, for the purpose of enacting
legislation necessary to make effec
tive the Cuban reciprocity treaty.
The day was devoted simply to per
sonal greetings and organization.
The house elected Jos. G. Cannon,
of Illinois, speaker.
THE PRESIDENT'S MFMSAGEt
Tuesday's session of the senate
was devoted exclusively to ttbe read4
ing of the Pr,_-sident's message in
support of reciprocity wN'itlh Cuba.
The message was very short, con
taining less than r,c. words, and
dealing entirely with the Cuban
treaty, for the ratification of which
the special session was called, afid
urging that it be promptly ratified.
The house was in session less than
half an hour on Tuesday. The
President's message was read. The
speaker appointed the committees
on rules and mileage, putting three
republicans and two democrats on
Action taken by the Republican
caucus on Tuesday will no doubt
displuce Senator Morgan as chair
man of committee on inter-oceanic
canals. The democratic steering
committee, it is stated, recognizes
the propriety of making the change
and will aid in bringing it about by
selecting Senator Morgan for the
chairmanship of one of the impor
tant minority committees.
On Wednesday the senate got
down to b'.isiness and received a
number of petitions and also many
bills. Nutierously signed petitions
protested against. Senator Smoot, of
Utah, remaining in the Sena-.
The democratic stcering con
illittee was in session before the
senate met and again considered the
Panama situation. No conclusion
was reached but the indications are
that the do-mocrats will attack the
course of the administration on the
isthmus with reference to the es
tablishnment of the new republic of
RENOMINATION OF CRUM.
Reorganization of tihe Committee May Re
sult in Favorable Report on
A dispatch fronm Washinigtoni to
the News andl Courier says that
President Roosevelt has again sent
to the Senate thle nominat in of D r.
Crtun to be collector ot the port of
Charleston. Since ihe Seniat e comn
mlittee oin comm icee reportied thle
nom11iniation of Cr1iin there have
been severalI changes in thle mnem
bershi p of t hat conniiijtte'e. M asona
of Illinois, and Jones, of Nevadla,
Repulicans, and Vest and Turner,
Democrats, have retired. The op
p)osition to Crunm loses three votes,
while Mason was a pronounced ad
vocate of the negro collector.
It is probable that the rerga..:a
tion of the c:mmittee inav result in
a favorable report on the Crum
nomination, but the opposition on
the minority side is sufficiently
strong to prevent his confirination.
