VARIOUS CAPITAL GOSSIP. When the Senate met nt noon to-day, tho most noticeable contrast with yesterday's eessfon was tho fact that while fully three fourths of the spectators yesterday wero ladies, at least four-ilfths of to-day's visit ors weio men. The portion of tho gal leries reserved exclusively for ladles wero almost empty, whllo thoso assigned to tho sterner sex wcro better filled thau during yesterday's session. Tho philosopher who would have puzzled himself for n solution of tlio problem of wny tno snow ami novelty or mo opening session, nnd tho monotonous ordeal of listening to tho reading of tho message should attract such different audiences, would havo been Interrupted exactly at noon by Iho fall of tho gavel, nud would havo heard tho report of tlio commlttco that Iho President had been noil lied of tlio Sen ate's readiness to receive Executlro com munications, aud that the messago was ou Its way. Major l'rudcn, tho President's trusted emissary, was promptly on hand and tho messago was soon In tho hands of tho clerk and its reading commenced. Coutrary to custom tho Senators, collectively and indi vidually, manifested a respectful and at tentive Interest lu tho contents of tho com munication. Kvery Senator who was present yesterday was in Ills scat to-day and tho reading of the message was listened to by nil with evident appreciation of its clear aud forciblo stylo and frank declarations. Tho President's message opens with a feeling trlbuto to tho lato Vlco-l'resldcnt Ilcudticks. roiinroN nrxAUONS. Tho forclsu relations nro carefully re viewed, and all nro declared to bo friendly. Tho President declares against tho acquisi tion of now nud distant territory. Tho Austrian mission is said to remain vacant, because tho Austrian Government objected to tho envoy appointed, on grounds which tho Ptcsldent could not constitutionally recognize Tho Nicaragua canal project Is commented upon as deslrablo If devoid of any responsibility on tho part of this Gov ernment for tlio government and protection of tho surrounding country. Legis lation to carry out tho commercial treaty with Mexico Is recommended. Tho operations of tho commercial agreement with Spain havo proved inadequate, and tlio negotiation of a moro comprehensive treaty Is In progress. Better legislation concern ing citizenship and naturalization Is ro- quircii. ttiu ircsiucnt expresses tno opin ion that tho proposed reciprocity trcatlos with Spain and fcanto Domingo submitted to tho last Scnato wcro Inexpedient. Tho apiiioprlatlous for the diplomatic nnd con sular servico should bo largely Increased. The means of encouraging commercial re lations and strengthening friendship with tidjolnlnjr tertltory should lie carefully con sidered. Tlio tarllt discrimination In favor of American artists abroad should bo done away with. KCV1SISO tiid TAitirr, Tho President approves and commends to tho attention of Congress tho recommenda tions of Secretary Mauultig's report. Tho fact that our reveufles arc unnecessarily largo Justifies a reduction of taxation. The question of frco trado Is not involved lu thu present necessity for reducing tho rarcniiu received by tho Government nnd Indirectly paid by the pcoplo ftoui customs duties. In dustries and Interests protcctod by present laws should not be ruthlessly Injured or do slrojcd lu whatever modification Is made of existing rovcuuo laws. Within thoso limita tions Iho roremto should bo reduced, and tho reduction can best bo made lu tho tax uponlmpoitcd neccssatles of llfo. rill! CIT.UENCV ASM UOIXAOC. Tho currency and coinage problems aro commented upon as being of tho utmost Importance. In refcrouco to tho compul sory coinago of silver dollars tho President says thu constitutional authority ''to coin money" does not justify purchase and coinago beyond tho requirements of circu lation. Tho desire to utilize tho silver pro duct of tho country should not lead to an abuse of this constitutional power. Tho present silver coinago would eventually convert nil the gold held by tho Govern ment Into kllver. Tho hoiirifiiitc of gold has alieady commenced und tho percentage of gold in customs payments must necessarily dcclluo while tho ptesentsllver coinago con tinues. Tlio results nt the withdrawn) of gold from circulation would bo perma nently Itijuiloiis to the Interostsof tho people. Tho stiver now In circulation Is not sufll clent to cause uneasiness, and even the aniimnt thus faroolned may eventually ha must, but there aro already Indications of lack of coulldouce In our tluauclnl processes, and continued coinago Involves fear and uncertainty. The ntcps taken Mnco the d lotirniui'iit of Congress have fully demon strated tliu usclononess of further attcmplt at present to ariive at any Inteiiiatlunul bl-mo-tallc agreement . The present course of this country w 111 lender Itan unwelcome party to future monetary International conference. Tliu recent ngreetueut of the Latin Union all oi ds an additional warning. The condi tion to which our Trenury U tending causes apprehension to all patilotleiitkens, who do not desire to sue the Government pay IU uold obligations In silver, aud who regret that peiideticti prevents ttie calling hi and payment of Intcrest-bourlug obligatluus which w e now have tho right to discharge. Dlsaidcr bus thus far bcuti averted by un usual opodlonts and by oimfldenco In thu ability of l oiigress to relieve Iho sltuutlou. The itonbl und ruluci-aucu of Inventors, mi nted capital and unemployed labor now ap peal strongly tu Congress for a safe and stable currency. The sttspouslmi of thu compulsoi'j coinage act Is urgently recom mended. MINoll llKCilMMI.NmllO.NH. The work of the survey of the const should lie transferred to the Navy Depart purtineiit, and loglfJatlou alVettlng the Coast Survey Bureau Is necessary, Th" I leeonuniiivl.ition-. of ih Nuil.ii. of Win are rovluwcd and approved. Iteiorm in court-martial law Is urged. Liberal appro ptlallons for coast defenses aro recom mended. Tho Signal Servico should bo separated from tho military establishment and governed by definite laws. lltm.lHNO M'TIIONAVV. The course pursued by Secretary Whit ney Is approved In all respects and llboral appropriations for tho Increase of tho Navy nro urged. A thoroughly ro-organlzod Navy Department and n thoroughly re-or-ganlzcd Navy aro pressing national noeosl tlcs. Tlio efforts thus far to revive thu Navy ate characterized as aimless follies. Tlio President expresses tlio hopo that tho Navy Department may bo supplied with the highest order of talent and ingenuity, and tho Navy mado to compare favorably with those of other great nations. Tin: rosTAt. smivici:. Tho operations of tho postal service aro rovlovicd and tho belief expressed that tlio servico will soon again bo self-supporting, with postal rates as favorablo ns thoso of fered iiy any other country. Tho proposod reduction of intcs ou domestic tiionoy orders Is approved. Tlio free delivery sys tem should l)o rapidly extended. Tholnad vlsablllly of Indcllulto steamship subsidy appropriations is commented upon. Another assistant to tho Postmaster-General should bo provided for, TltC llCl'AllTMlINT OP JfSTIOI!. Tho Attorney-General's report Is declared to show that tlio present overburdened con dition of many of the courts causos delay and virtual denial of Justlco and calls for remedial legislation. Tho transfer of all ottginal Jutlsdlctlon of circuit courts to dis trict cottits, an Increased number of Judges and limitations as to appeals aro recom mended. Appeals from courts of this Dis trict and Iho Tcriitorles should ho subject to tho same restrictions as those from Statu courts, Tho system of allowing fees to marshals and district at torneys should bo abolished as tending to cncoiiriigo frivolous prosecutions, and thoso olllccrs should ho paid by salary only. Tho jurisdiction of United States commissioners might also bo extended lu the interest of humanity and economy to certain classes of misdemeanors. Some plan for correcting abuses in criminal law administration Is very necessary. Tlin INIIIAN QUESTION, Tho Indian problem Is carefully treated. Some progress has been accomplished by prudent administration, but a fixed policy should bo provided. Tho moans to bo cmplojcdto fit them for citizenship aro as yet problematical. Tho varied, circum stances, needs and desires of tho various tribes prevent tho application of ono gen eral plan to all classes. Tho needs of va rious tribes should bo separately consid ered and provided for. Tho parsago of a law authorizing the appointment of sixconnnls sloncrs.tlii eo of w hum shall bo detailed from tho army, Is recommend. This commission should be empowered to Investigate thu needs of v.,ilous tribes, inspect reservations, determine when removals from reservations orpuichtiii sor sales of hind nro advisable, determine upon changes In modes of hold ing lands, repint how and where privileges and rcspoii'lhillUcs of citizenship can bo given, aud should bo entrusted with us much outhoitty ns Congress deems proper. All questions of supplies, employment and treatment of Indians should bu entrusted to this commission In conjunction with tho Sccrctaiy of tho Interior. 1TIK.IC LANDS foil 8CTTI.CR9, Legislation Is asked to aid in preserving the public lands for settlers aud honic- ecckcrs and protect them from speculators and corporations. Tho subsidized railroads should be held strictly to Uielr accountabil ities. l'Essros orricr. ncronMs. Tho rcfotms lu tho Pension (Jlllco promise fuller and moro prompt recognition of tho services of tho soldiers and better protec tion from fraud. THE PATENT OrriCE. Tho suggestions of tlio Commissioner of Patents aro approved. MTl'IICSSINO rOLYOAMV. Tho enforcement of tho anti-polygamy law has been energetic and has secured measurably good results. There will bo no relaxation in its enforcement and tho 1'retldctit will gladly approvo futther legis lation to tid the country of tlio blot of polygamy. A law preventing tho importa tion of Monnons is recommended. THE AI.11ICUJ.TU1IAI. INTKllESTS.

CONCLUDING OIISEUVATIONS. Legislation governing the Presidential succession Is recommended. Tho messago concludes as follows: In conclusion I commend to tho who caro nnd thoughtful attention of t'oinrruss thu need", thu welfare nud tho aspirations ot an Inklllci'tit and generous nation. To subordi nate those to tho narrow- advantages of parti sanship, or tlio accomplishment ot selfish alms Is to violate tliu poopio's trust anil betray tho people's Interests.

As the reading of the message progressed, printed and bound copies were distributed In tho press gallerv, and a few of thoso, to gether with copies of tlio "book of esti mates," wcro the only literature vlslblo ou the desks of the Senators. The little comment on tlio message ob tainable from Senators dining Its reading was mainly commendatory. Tho President's course In devoting more than ono-ilfth ot tho entire document to a review of tho sil ver question was commended. The absetico ot any recommendation respecting tho In ternal revenuo was criticised. Although the message Is fully twice as long as usual, Its stylo was generally coui- piimcnicii. 1 ho approval of tho Mexican commercial treaty was generally received with surprise. Tho ubsenco of any argument for subsldlos was a disappointment in the lobby. Tlio recommendations in reference to thu Indian policy wero commended by those Interested in tho civilization of tho Indians nud tho Improvement of their condition. Tho tlmo occupied in reading tho President's messago was ono hour and forty-two minutes. Tho annual report of thu Secretary of thu Treasury was then submitted; also, a memorial from tho Legislature ot Now Hampshire re questing Congress to pass legislation tliat may secure exclusively to tho American pcoplo tho public lands of tho United States. .Mr. Hoar then introduced his hill (hereto fore published) to provide for tho perform ance of tbo duties of tlio olllco of President In case of removal, death, resignation or In ability both of tho President and Vlco-Pros-Ident.

After tho reading of tho Journal, tho message of tho President wil received from tho White House, through Assistant Secretary l'rudcn, and was laid beforo tlio Houso and the reading was at onco pro ceeded with, THE ltOPbC COMMITTEES. Thcro Is a good deal of talk around thu Capitol to-day about tho probability of thu Speaker making no announcement ot his committees until after tho holiday recess. It seems to bo tbo general Impression that a light over the proposod change of tlio rulos is unavoidable, and uluco tho formation of tbo commlttoes may bo supposed to depend somewhat upon what changes may bu mado iu tho rules, It is said that tlio Speaker Is not expected to announce tlio committees until the question of the rules is disposed of.
