Ox the first Tuesday after the

qualified voters of the Corporation
of Bolivar will elect a Mayor, a

Board of Education, consisting of
three members, to serve one year.
At the January Term of Quarter

be transacted will be the election of
a Chairman to preside for the en
suing year. The present incum
bent, Esquire D. VV. McAnulty, a
candidate fur re-election, we under
stand has no opposition. He should
have none because he has been
faithful to the trust, attentive to
his duties, careful of the county's
interests and has made a most com
petent and courteous official. Men
of Esquire McAnulty's make-up are
exceptions, and so long as they cou
sent to serve the public, tafety aud
satisfaction are assured.

Washington, December 5. The
last session of the Fifty-eight Con
gress was called together at noon to
day. The openiag was under the
usual interesting conditions and
amid those scenes that for years
have made the reassembling of Con
gress among the notable events of
Our country. Hundreds of sight
seers to-day thronged the corridors
and crowded into the galleries to
witness the formal proceedings
From one end of the capitol build
ing to the other the busy tread of
statesmen and the flutter of femin
initv distinguished tbe occasion
from any other in the official or so
cial calendar of the year.
From the lethargy which has
characterized Washington since
early in the spring the city awaken
ed to a new era and heralded with
apparent joy the day which opens
both the official and social seasons.
The streets were crowded with peo
pie intent on witnessing the ceremo
nies. Carriages flocked about the
hotels ready to carry guests to the
capitol, and two hours before noon
a steady stream of vehicles bearing
gay parties made its way to the east
front of the building. Many new
members were at the capitol, al
though they will not enter office
until after March 4. A particularly
sad feature of the reassembling was
the absence of kindly faces grown
old in the service of the country.
Rarely in the memory of the old
guard has the opening day been
made such a eala occasion. The
galleries, rather than the floor,
proved the center of attraction, for
rows upon rows of handsomely
gowned women looked down upon
the statesmen who were grouped
about the chambers or strolled in
and out of the cloak-rooms to ex
change greeting with old friends
and receive those of new ones.
Members of both bodies were
flooded with remembrances in the
form of floral pieces, and the cham
bers presented an appearance which
they never knew on any other oc
casiou. Baskets and clusters of
bright roses, chrysanthemums and
other fall flowers covered the desks.
Though rain and sleet fell during
the entire morning, these discom
forts were insufficient to mar the
success of the event.
This will be the short seseijn of
the Fifty-eighth Congress and a no
tably interesting one, for it is pre
sumed the session will go out in a
blaze of glory. Only once in four
years does Congress have an op
portunity to wind up its affairs un
der the historic conditions which
will prevail next Match.
In the Senate.
Washington, December 5. The
Senate convened for its final session
of the'Fiftyeighth Congress-prompt-ly
at noon to-day. The first Sen
ator in his seat was Mr. Piatt of !
New York. Long before 12 o'clock
the galleries were filled, but the
buzz of conversation ceased abrupt
ly when President Pro. Tern. Frye's
gavel fell. Itev. Edward Everett
Hale, D. D., Chaplain of the Sen
ate, offered prayer. Two seats had
been vacated by death those of
Senators Hoar of Massachusetts and
Quay of Pennsylvania. Many eyes
were turned sorrowfully toward the
desks so long occupied by these men,
who had grown old in tbe public
service. Their successors, Senator
elect Crane of Massachusetts and.
Knox of Pennsylvania attended the
session, but they will not occupy
the seats assigned them until they
are formally sworn in. These seats
are in the extreme rear on the Dem
The floral decorations were equal
to those of auy session in the histo
ry of the Seivate. Many desks
were overflowing with the offeiings,
and the Seuate force was occupied
from 11 to 12 o'clock in arranging
them so Senators could take their
seats. The largest single tiibule
was placed on the desk of Senator
Tillman of South Carolina. It was
a huge basket of American Beauty
roses and chrysanthemums. The
largest collection of flowers was
that sent to Senator Dryden of New
Jersey. His desk, chair and the
floor all about were strewn with
clusters of roses and chrysanthe
mums and baskets of flowers of all
When Senator Fairbanks, the
Vice President elect, entered the
chamber he was greeted warmly by
many of his colleagues. The vis
itors applauded his entrance with
cheers and hand clapping.
After prayer the roll -was called
and seventy three Senators respond
ed. Then the flowers were removed
and the routine business of the ses
siou was opened. Mr. Platl (Conn.)
offered a resolution to i-iform the
House of Represf ntatives that the
Senate was in session and ready to
proceed with " business. Stinior
Allison ina.ie the usual fuirnil mo
lion that a committee be nam-d to
inform the President t'r.at the Sen
ate was ready to receive any mes
sage that he had to communicate.
President pro tern Frye appointed
Messrs. Allison and Cou k re 11 for
On moii m of Mr. Cockreil, 12
o'clock was fixed as the hour for the
meeting of the Senate. The death
of the late Senator Quay was an
uouneetTby Mr. Penrose, who said
that he would later in the session
make some remarks concerning the
career of his colleague. He with
held the customary motion that the
Senate adjourn out of respect to the
memory of Senator Quay in order
to give Mr. Lodge (Mass.) an op
portunity to announce the death of
his late colleague. Senator Hoar.
Mr. Lodge then presented a res
olution on behalf of himself and
Mr. Penrose asking that the Sen
ate adjourn. The session was ad
journed at 12:13 o'clock.
Washington, Dec. 5. The House
of Representatives convened to-day
at noon for the last session of the
Fifty-eighth Congress. The ever
interesting; event attracted to the
House side of the capitol, the usual
openiug day throng who, although
conscious that admission to the gal
leries was by card only, ueverthe
less began to assemble as early as
9 o'clock. From that hour on the
crowd grew in size until the corri
dors became choked with constantly
moving humanity, many of whom
indulged in the vain hope that by
some stroke of good fortune they
might gam admittance, while others
were coutent if they but only could
peep in. The occupants, therefore,
were strictly limited to the families
and personal friends of members.
The gallery doors were thrown
open at half past ten o'clock and in
a very short time every seat was
taken. The Diplomatic Corps was
well represented in the section set
apart for their e.-peciil use. The
spectators evinced the greatest in
terest in the happenings on tbe floor
below, and kept up an incessant
conversation. Jow ana then as
some favorite entered the chamber,
he was liberally applauded.
r or an hour or more preceding
the calling of the body to order by
Speiker Cannon, the members slow
ly hied ' into the chamber and ex
changed greetings. Some came in
for hearty congratulations, while
others received the sincere reg'ets
of their colleagues, who, ou account
of tLeir misfortune at the polls,
were getting together for possibly
the last time.
The Republicans, fresh from thtir
recent victory, gathered in groups
aud talked over the late campaign,
while their democratic brethren
gave no outward f-ign of having suf
fered defeat. Men of both parties
freely intermingled aud discussed
the issues of the last election and
its result, the Democrats good-
naturedly taking the thrusts and
gibes heaped upon them in friendly
couversaiion by their victorious op
ponents Good fellowship prevail
In his private room, for some
time before the House met Speaker
Cannon held an informal reception
to "the boys," as he is wont to call
his associates in the House. With
out distinction as to party, the mem
bers dropped in to pay their respects
and for each he had a pleasant
The floral display was beautiful :
