At n minute t ) noon by the big cloak rpposilc bis desk, Speaker Heed en. Icrcd tlic Hall of Iteprasentntives with cluw and solemn trend. Ilia face did not wear n smile. Ills coming was un noticed by the member, the only one of whom who went up and shook lmmls v 1th him belnc Frank Liwler. The tmart of defeat was upon them both nnd they felt sympathetic. Long before noon the members began coming lu upon the floor. The Demo crats look oi radiant and triumphant, the Itcinibllcnru downcast. Greetings (wcro exchanKed and the successful ones congratulated cacii otucr. lemocrats cotnmiecratcd with tholiepublicans.tho latter looking bored. Their efforts to (mile and look cheerful wcro really ptln ful to see. The space In front of tho Speaker's desk was filled with membtrs or both parties, all talking at once. Mr. Springer and Mr. llurrotvs shook hands warmly and engaged In an ant mated conversation, which appeared qullo amulog, as both gentlemen lauubid heartily. When Major McKlnley entered he wore tho traditional Napoleonic expres sion of the campaign of 1871. lie was surrounded by n sympathetic crowd who, like him. had fallen outside the liteastwiitks. During all the talk he mvt r smlltd, but wore a high and stern look. Mr. Kllgore of Texas sat In his so it I ' the last row on the Democratic side, his hair bristling more defiantly thin ever, and nulled as blandly at though ho had kicked the whole side out of the Hi publican House. He shook hnnds with friends, two at a time, and al together looked as cheery nnd breery as n Texas prairie on a crisp, sunny day in spring. Promptly at Vi the Speaker's gavel fell upon his desk, and his familiar voice told, "The House will be In or der." Instantly the hum of conversa tion cuawl and the members quickly so u itb t their seats. The blind Clianlalu Invoked Divine aid and support. Then the Speaker directed the Clerk to call the roll of States. This disclosed a quorum. The next thing la order was the Swearing in of new member. They are Mr. I'ladar of New York, elected to fill the vacancy created by the death of Mr. Wilbur of the a'weety fourth district; Mr. Hiyesof Iowa, lathe place of Mr. Conger of the Seventh district, who resigned to go as Minister to ltrazll.

There were some slight, technical objectioaa to the cmleatiiU of Messrs. niular awl Hayes, but tbey n ere dually sworn la. The only oae of them who received any applause was Mr. llfeekleridge of Arkansas. Wbea the Speaker aa aouaeed that it was tlase to swear ia the "geutleiaaa frotu Arkansas," Mtasrs. McIUe ami Peel, h bo are. as Tim Casuitbell would say, "eolllies" of Mr. HrccKiarbige. walked over to the letter's seat aad escorted hint dowa the ile. The Democratic members ap plauded Mr. lireeklaridge to the echo as be proudly auMcbed doa to the C'Uik's desk to pledge biaiseit to aiaad by the Coastitutioa aad the laws cf his citualry. It was a bitter dose for Speaker lieed to have to go through the fursaality of sweeriag ia the areas ber frotu Arsaasas, but he did it with bU usual stolid dlgalty. The appiause wbk-h folbwed upoa his takiag the oath was loud, eatbusiastte aad loag eoatiaued. It would have delighted aa actor oa the stage, aad this was oae with 9,000.000 spectators, besides Alaska aad Iadiaas aot tasked. It was a sigaal coalrast to the aileace aad ia dUfereace with wsuVeh Speaker Heed's apsearaace had beea greeied aad saust have galled that geaiktiiaa greatly, though he did aot alace.

On the desk of Senator Voor hnswas n lines lloral piece. In the middle of a bed of roses rested a mound of uhlte and purple immortelles, on which were the woids: "D. W. Voor litis. Indlnmi."

Mr. Carey and Mr. Warren had luen slaudingoti the Republican side of tbe Chamber talking with Mr. Dolph, Mr. Plumb and other Republican Senators.

When tbe oath had been admin istered orally Chief Clerk Johnson placed the written oath before each of l lu in, and tliey signed it. Then they walked', unescorted, to their desks, which are in the last row on the Republican side of the Chamber, between the desks of Mr. Power awl Mr. Illcgtas. For several minutes tbe new Senttors held a reception and shook tbe hinds of one after another of their fellow Senators. W bile this reception was beins; held Senator Edmunds offered In succession, two resolutions, to which tbe Senate agreed. One of them dt dared uoon tbe regular hour of meetlac, ami Ibe other directed tbe Secretary of tbe Seaate to inform tbe House of It-rpre sentatlvu that the Senate was assem bled.

IKIIKMAL KI.KiTIOKr.AW. It is gratifying lo know that gen erally there is a growing and non-pir-tUsu demand for better election laws. Hut against tbl sign of bone and progress must be set tbe depressing and undeniable fact that election law and methods are lotnettim? cunningly con trived to secure minority control, while vh'lence complete tbe shortcomings of fraud. In my last annual messase Isurgeated that the development of tbe existing law provhllnK a Federal supervision of Congreaslomtl ekethm offered sn effect Ive method of forming these abuses. Tbe neetl of such a law has manifested Itself In many parts of ibe country, and its wholesome restraints and penalties will be useful In all. Tbe coastitu llouallty of tuch legislation has been smtined by tbe Supreme Court lis probable itrectiveness Is evidenced by ibe character of tbe opposition that is made to it. It has been denounced as if it arte a new exercise of federal pow-r ami an invasion of the rights of tbe Stales. Nothing could be further Irom tbe Huth ll is not a uueion whether we sbsll bhe Kidrial Klectlon law, for we now have one. aad has bad for twenty year, lmt whether we shall b.ve an tffictlve law.
