Applause for Cannon.
As the call proceeded it was noted
that the old members generally occu
pied their former seats, while new
members occupied those left vacant.
The red carnation was much in

troduced Mr. Cannon, saying:
It is a high honor to present a speaker
of the house of representatives, the great
est parliamentary body on the surface of,
the earth. It is an especial honor to pre
sent to this house this particular speaker.
I think the majority have selected their
hest type and I am satisfied the minority
will be given a full measure of fairness
and impartiality from him. I have the
honor to preBent your speaker, the Hon
orable Joseph G. Cannon of Illinois.
Cannon's Reply.
Mr. Cannon in a brief response said:
1 appreciate the honor you confer in
choosing me as the presiding officer of
the house. After twenty-eight years' ser
vice in the house, such an expression of
your confidence touches me profoundly. I
thank you. In the performance of the du
ties of office, I bring to the service a sin
cere desire to acquit myself with courtesy,
efficiency and firmness.
If I err it will be an error of the head,
not of the heart. I am quite sure that in
'the consideration of the people's business,
however sharp may be our differences, we
will not forget that courtesy and demeanor
which should olways obtain between man
ly opopnents who honestly differ.
In the performance of the duties of
speaker, I bespeak kindly co-operation of
each member of the house.
I am ready to take.the oath of office.--
Mr Bingham. Pennsylvania, upon
whom falls the titular honor of ''fethj
er of the house" having seen the long
est continuous service, administered
the oath. The members were then
sworn in by Mr. Cannon.
Following this a resolution was
adopted re-electing the old officers of
the house: Alexander McDowell,
-lerk Henry Casson, sergeant-at
nrms: Fra nk B. Lyon, doorkeeper J.
C. McElroy. postmaster and Rev. H.

H im Enthusiastically.
Washington. Nov. 9.With gal
leries crowded with the chamber a
mass of elaborate floral tributes and
nearly every senator in his seat, the
gavel of President pro tern. Frye
sounded at noon to-day. calling the
senate together in the extraordinary
session of the fifty-eighth congress.
The special session of the senate, fol
lowing the adjournment last spring of
the fifty-seventh congress, eliminated
much of the 'routine work which
otherwise would have been performed
to-day. Now senators had taken
oaths of office, seats had been as
signed and nearly all functions of the
organization had been completed.
Two hours before the senate was
called to order the galleries began
filling up with spectators, who
watched the pages and. messengers
place the constantly arriving floral
offerings upon the desks of senators.
Senator Hanna's pronounced victory
in Ohio won for him one of the most
pretentious floral designs ever seen in
the senate, a shield three and a half
by four and a half feet, of blue im
mortelles, in which were wrought out
of California grasses-, ribbons and red,
white and blue immortelles the design
of the American eagle. The shield
was surmounted with a gorgeous
cluster of American Beauty roses.
The offering bore the inscription:
I v..
I Senator Mark Hanna, from his
J friends, "The Irish Democrats" of |
| Cleveland. j
Fully a score of smaller tributes
were banked around Senator Hanna's
Gorman's Flowers. - -
Senator Gorman's triumph in Mary
land was recognized by a handsome,
wreath more than two feet in diameter
with a crossed cluster of roses, carna-:
lions and chrysanthemums as the,
base. Chrysanthemums were used" in
profusion, and there was hardly a
desk that did not carry one or more
huge bimches. ,
' * Senator Frye was the first to arrive,

and he amused himself by visiting the
desks, -admiring .th .flowers and read
ing the inscriptions.
When Senator Hanna came he was
greeted with cheers, which increased
to thunderous applause as he was fol
lowed a moment later by Senator Gor
man, and the two met in the center
aisle for a cordial handshake. The
senate was called to order at noon,
and the Rev.- F. J. Prettyman of
Washington made the prayer.
At roll-call seventy members an
swered, and President Frye declared^a
quorum present. Mr. Piatt, Connecti
cut, offered a resolution to notify the
house that the senate was ready to
proceed to business. .Mr. Hoar and
Mr. Gorman were appointed a commit
tee to join a committee appointed by
the house to inform the president con
gress had organized and was ready to
receive any communication he had to
make. A resolution made by Mr. Cul
lom fixing noon as the hour for con

keep its paws off of Korea or get

yesterday underwent an operation for
the removal of a polypus from his
The operation was performed: by
Professor Moritz Schmidt, and it was
entirely successful. The only incon

that he has been enjoined, not to

Fears Are Expressed That Kaiser's
Malady Is Dangerous. ' ''.
New York, - Nov. 9.Information
contained in private dispatches re
ceived here shows that the operation
on Emperor William is similar to the
first one performed on his father, and
consequently causes: .concern . to his
household. The official statement is
sued by the surgeona fails to reassure
because it is well understood that for*
reasons of state the emperor would: be
given the benefit of any dbubt as to
the true character of his disease-.: -

is anxiety because both Em
peror William's father and mother
died of cancer and. his grandmother,
Augusta, also was so afflicted. The
emperor's aunt, -the Grand Duchess of
Baden, as is well known-in Germany,
is suffering from the same malady.
It will take months to decide wheth

founded.At present the whole weight

that he has not cancer. ^,

The story of the day concerning the
emperor Is not the story of the bul
letins, of the telegram's from foreign
sovereigns nor of the sympathetic ihr
quirles of the ambassadors, but of the
regret and concern of the people.
"It is worth being ill to receive a
thing like this," the emperor is re
ported as saying, when some chrys
anthemums sent to hifh by three
working women, were handed to hint
to-day. Several similar indications of
regard were made by poor, persons at
