Washington, Dec 7. Congress is once
more In session and ready to do busi
ness, or will be by the time this dis
patch is read by the public The two
houses convened this noon tn the
time-honored manner, the hour or so
previous to the fall of the presiding
officers' ravels, showing the floors of
the two chambers scattered over with
groups of congressmen greeting each
other, talking politics, or speculating
on what would be said in the presi
dent's message about Cuba or the
finances, and what would be done by
this session of congress with reference
to the tariff, the money question or the
pleas of the Cuban rebels for the as
sistance of Uncle Sam.
Little To Be Done This Week.
Vice President Stevenson, with a rap
of the gavel, called the senate to order
at noon today. The first day of the ses
sion will be devoted almost entirely to
receiving the president's message, pro
vided it is sent in today, as it is gener
ally conceded that it will be. Immedi
ately after the opening prayer a com
mittee was appointed to notify the
president and the house of representa
tives that the senate was organized
end ready to receive communications
and proceed with business. The first
week of the session is not expected to
be productive of any important results
In a legislative way. There are many
senators who think nothing should be
done beyond the passage of the appro
priation hills at .this session, and as
these measures necessarily originate In
the house there will be a disposition to
postpone the season of activity until
some of these bills can be received from
the other end of the Capitol.
There Ia Plenty of Work'Ready.
The probabilities are that the daily
sessions at the beginning will be com
paratively brief, and that the senate will
contentitself with four days' work each
week. The calendar presents a wide
range of material for consideration in
case the senate shows a disposition to
busy Itself. In this Is Included the im
migration bill, which is the unfinished
business; the Pacific railroad refunding
bill, the statehood bills and the Dingley
tariff and bond bills, as well as the
Cuban and Hawaiian questions. Sen
ators Lodge and Chandler have an
nounced their determination to press
the immigration bill to a vote as speedi
ly as they can. It will be the first regu
lar business to be taken up, and cannot
be displced except by vote or unani
mous consent. They hope to get the
bill through before the holidays.
Tariir WU1 Walt oa a Caacaa.
It is also possible that the president's
message may suggest subjects for
speeches, and there are those who pre
dict that the Cuban question will re
ceive vigorous attention from the be
ginning of the session. It is generally
agreed that the Republicans will hold
a caucus to determine upon a line of
policy, especially with reference to the
tariff, and until after the exchange of
views which this conference will per
mit no step Is likely to be taken which
will commit the party to any position
on any question of political significance.
HOCSE LIKELY TO PUSH BUSINESS.
Appopriationa Have the RIglit-of-Way,
and Two of Them Are Ready.
The opening week promises to aee the
house put its shoulder to the wheel of
the regular appropriation bills. Chair
man Cannon and the committee on ap
propriations were at work all last week,
and it Is their eanest Intention to pass
two and possible three of the bills be
fore the Christmas holdays. The pen
sion and legislative appropriation bills
are about ready, and work on one or
the other of these will be begun In the
house before the week closes. The pen
sion bill, although It carries a larger
amount of money than any of the oth
er supply bills, la very brief, and unless
some political discussion Is precipitated
Is not likely to consume much time In
Its consideration. Beyond these two
bills nothing Is in sight at present. It
is. of course, not unlikely that the com
mittee on rules will provide something
for the house to do In case the commit'
tee on appropriations is not prepared to
go ahead with either of these appro
The course of the legislation, so far as
the important measures on the calen
dar Is concerned (like the Pacific rail
road funding bill, the Nicaragua canal
bill, etc), will be determined entirely
by the rules committee. But it Is safe
to assume that nothing will be allowed
to block the appropriation bills as they
are reported for action. They always
have the-right-of-way at the short ses
sion. Today will probably be devoted
entirely to the reading- of the presi
OX THE ETE OF THE SESSION.
Influx of Statenaea at the Hotel BUrk
Haaaa the Central Figaro.
That last night was the eve of a new
session of congress was apparent in the
Washington hotels, which are always
barometers of political activity under
the dome. Senators and members com
ing to the city by every train, rein
forced by the attaches and lookers-on
of congress, were drifting Into the lob
bies, greeting one another like school
boys after a vacation with much hand
shaking, with reminiscences of the
campaign and many explanations of
how their re-elections or defeats had
been brought about. There was com
paratively small interest In the work of
the coming congress itself apart from
the president's message, but clouds of
speculation were afloat dealing with,
the policies of the new administration
to be Inaugurated oa the 4th of March,
and with the personnel of the cabinet.
It was unanimously conceded that
the Republican programme was to Ig
nore the Dingley tariff bill and to aum-
the 15th cf March, fir the purpose' of
pavfuig a new tariff mc-avure. Curios
ity vas expressed over what reference
If any I iesident Cleveland rr.ir.ht make
to the rssu s and the result of the pres
idential campaign, and particularly as
to Ms policy U,n tbe Cuban question.
The central figure of the night was
Marcus A. Hanna. who is looked upon
here as the advance agent of the Mc
Klnley administration, with a commis
sion to feel the pulse of congress and
to communicate the policy of the president-elect
to the leaders. When Han
na appeared in the Arlington lobby
after his dinner, accompanied by H.
C. Payne, of Wisconsin, who is slated
as a cabinet probability; C. J. Dawes,
of Chicago, a member of the republi
can committee, and General Horace
Porter, the marshal of the Inauguration
parade, the party was urrnund4 by
congressmen and other politicians who
escorted them to Hanna's rooms. The
Republican chairman had been Invisi
ble during the day. trying to put aside
politics for a Sunday, he explained, but

GERMAN GOVERNMENT PROTESTS.
Doesn't Like the President's Proclamation
Impoalng Tonnage Dntire.
Washington, Dec. 7. Tho German
government has lodged an energetic
protest with the state department
against the action of the president In
Imposing tonnage duties on German
ships entering American ports. The re
ceipt of this protest will be duly ac
knowledged, but there the matter Is
likely to reft unless the German gov
eminent ttl;es stops to remove the
charges on American shli-ping which
formed the basis fur the president's
proclamation. The contention of the
German government Is that it does not
tax Amerlenn hlping, and that the
ImiMTlal government cannot lo held
accountable for the lmKisitlon of local
charges by provincial government ofu
The contention of our government Is
that regardless of the puestlon of who Is
responsible for the levying of the port
dues their collection from American
vessels Is the only fact necessary to be
establish d to put In operation at once
the Dingley law Imposing tonnage dues
on foreign vessels: that the law Is self
operative, and once the president Is sat
isfied that port charges of any charac
ter are Imposed on American ships by
a foreign government he must croclalm
the fact, thus setting the law in force.
I'NCTLK SAM'S NATAL PROGRESS.
Marked Increase In It Strength Daring
the Past Three Year.
Washington, Dec. 7. The annual re
port of Hilary A. Herbert, secretary of
the navy, calls attention to the fact
that In his last report he had stated
that at that tithe the United States had
not a single war vessel that could keep
seas against a first-class vessel of any
Important power. On June 30, 1S33.
there were thirty vessels in commission
with a tonnage of (2.820; on June 30.
1836, there were forty with a tonnage of
tons, and with the Brooklyn and
Puritan now in commission the number
Is forty-two with a tonnage of 13.RS.
The Increase In the number of those
serving in tbe navy was about Z.000
during the same time. Now also we
have ships that tan hold the seas with
those of any pouer In the world. The
secretary takes ground in favor of
more battleships rather than more

on a determination to continue In
