WASHINGTON, Nov. 23.-The fifty-fifth
congress will assemble In regular session
on Monday. December 6, and many sena-
tors and representatives have already re
turned to the national capital. The gen
eral opinion of those already here seems
to be that the coining session will be of
the usual length and that an adjournment
will not be reached before next July or
August. Many of the older members are
expecting some warm debates on ques
tion* <>f national importance, and especi
ally tn regard to our foreign relations. The
Cuban question and Hawaiian annexation
will take up a great deal of time, and a
very vicious onslaught is to be made on
the civil service law in both houses of con
gress. The old fisrht on the bankruptcy
law will be renewed and there will al
most as many schemes to reform the cur
rency legislation of the country as there
are member? of congress.
Business will beg;n from the very day
GOVERNMENT FACTORY FOR ARMOR PLATE.
Special Naval Board Favors a $3,000,000 Plant,
With ati Output of 6,000 Tons.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 23.-The special
naval .board appointed to examine Into the
cost of armor making will present to con
gress details of a plant which it has de
signed. It will cost more than $3,000,000 and
will have a capacity of 6,000 tons of armor
per annum, which is about the combined
capacity of the two armor plants now
supplying the navy. The process of manu
facture will include the very latest devel
opments In the art of metallurgy, ar.d
while the plans contemplate the manufac
ture of Harveyired nickel steel armor ac
cording to methods used in the reforged
process, they will admit of easy adaptation
to the new secret Krupp process of hard
ening armor by the use o? gas. The plans
are s.ild to be perfect In every dttall and.
of the opening of the session. The com

GAG EON CURRENCY REFORM
The Secretary Dlseasses the Qae»-
tloa Before the Xew York Chan
ber of Commerce.
NEW YORK. Nov. 23.-The l»h annual
dinner of the New York Chamber of Com
merce was triven at Pelraonico's new res
taurant tonight. Men distinguished in pro
f* ssional and commercial life were pres
ent, and the l»eaiitiful banquet hall was
taxed to its utmost capacity.
Secretary of the Tnwurary Lyman J.
Gage was the guest of honor and the chief
speaker. He spck- to the toast "Currency
Reform: Now or When?" He said in part:
"Thanks to the wise instincts of our peo
ple. and to their roice. uttered
in November last, assurances have come
to lift doubt?, to banish fears, to brace
hope and to lend courage. This happy re
action in enterprise now witnessed—the
stimulation of industry which has follow
ed this new assurance—ls confirmatory
evidence of the blighting of that fierce
propaganda for free silver which met its
just rebuke in 1*96-
"Speaking broadly. I believe that the
shape anil destiny of our life as It may be
affected by financial legislation is to be
determined within the next four years.
Four years is a period so short in a peo
ple's history as to t>ar all idea of futurity,
and to require In substitution the more im
mediate. omnipresent now.
"It Is said that under present conditions
it is j>ossible that obstructionists can hin
der and defeat the popular will; that agi
tation on so delicate a subject as the mon
ey standard is disturbing: that we have
the best of guarantees that for four years
the present status will be maintained; that
the revival of business will be best assured
by the policy of inaction.
"That the condition of our currency and
banking system is 'bad enough' is certi
fied to by the deliberate judgment of the
great body of economic students ana by a
general consensus of opinion among busi
ness men.
"The establishment of our currency and
banking system upon more secure foun
dations is' the one thing lacking to the
things which make for a permanent condi
tion of reasonable prosperity.
"In a word. 1 commit myself to the fol
lowing proposition: At a cost too con
temptible for serious consideration. the de
batable condition of our currency and
banking system may be put on clearly safe,
if not theoretically scientific, foundations.
This may be secured without any neces
sary contraction of the circulating medi
um of exchange, and with no danger of an
undue expansion, and, best of all. this de
sirable end may carry in its effect potential
relief to those districts in the South and
West which, though rich in possibilities of
soil and climate, have been held back
having been drawn under one of the lead
ing experts of the country, the specifica
tions are said to be so well defined that no
difficulty is expected to arise in securing
straight bids. The board has prepared the
form of advertisement calling for bids for
erecting this plant, as congress desired
that information. Secretary Ix»ng will
soon issue the advertisement.
It ts the purpose to have al! of the plan*
In the secretary's hands by the first of
next month, and if the advertisement is
promptly sent out it is hoped that within
three months at the latest congress will
have before it full inforamtlon as to the
cost of an armor plant, as well as offers
from existing plants to sell out to the gov
ernment.

WOMES n POSTAL SERVICE.
Department Considers Their Work
as Satisfactory as the Men's.
WASHINGTON". Nov. 23.—First Assist
ant Postmaster Oentral Heath has trans
mitted to th« postal administration of the
German government, through Second As
sistant Shailenbergt-r. a comprehensive re
port on the employment of wom*n in the
government service. There are '.<!? wom< n
postmasters, and perhaps 80,»W0 women to
whom the oath of office has Vwen admin
istered to qualify them to assist in con
ducting the business of th- 1 post offices.
are 167 women employed in the post
office department proper. Women, the re
port says, are employed in all branches
of the postal service, except as letter car
riers, clerks in the railway mail service
and postoffice inspectors. Some of the
most faithful and efficient employes ,'n
the postal service are women.
The conclusion of the department Is that,
altogether, fhe service of women has
proved almost, if not equally, as satisfac
tory as that of men. The report is
based on a request of the German govern
ment as to what has been the general ex
perience of the government with wom n
employes.
Satisfied With the I'nion Pacific Sale.
Special Dispatch to the Post-Intelligencer.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 23.—Senator Har
ris, of Kansas, the Populist successor of
Senator Peffer. who strongly opposed the
original arrangement for the sale of the-
I'nion Pacific, now says that he Is satisfied
witi the course which the present admin
istration has taken. He expresses the be
lief that the government will also realiz"
its full claim on the Kansas Pacific. That
road, he says, is very valuable and will
Pay 4or 5 per cent, on $3" '*X>.ooo. Senator
Harris thinks there will be more trouble,
fcoyever. about getting the full value of
thi» Central Pacific. He is fnclln«»d to think
that when the sale is ordered the Union
Pacific purchasers will buy it In as essen
tial to their rond.

CAS ADA VILLM6 TO CO-OPERATE
WITH THE (.'SITED STATES.
Sir Wilfred laarirr and Secretary
NEW YORK. Nov. 8.-Secretary of War
Alger, speaking of the plans for the re
| lief of Klondike miners in case of a fam
ine, said today:,
"I met Sir Wilfred while he was
in Washington, and wo had a talk in re
gard to the Yukon country. We agreed to
work together if it becomes necessary to
send relief to the people in that froaen
region, who .ire seeking gold. The co-oper
ation of Canada being assured, 1 believe
that we could manage to get provisions to
Dawson in »om? way before the sunwncr
opens the Yukon river.
"Capt. Rea, who represents the war de
partment, his gone to Alaska to report,
but just where he is I cannot say. He left
St. Michael on Auguet 29. and in the mid
die of September I heard from him at
Fort Yukon, about 1,300 miles up the Yukon
river and 500 miles from Dawson.
"The Yukon river is froren and it if not
easy to travel on the rough ice. Therefore
to send relief in midwinter by that route is
not practicable. The government has
about 1.100 reindeer in Alaska, but they are
scattered. Mr. Bliss, secretary of the in
terior. has placed at the disposal of ths
war department 100 reindeer that are with
in 500 miles of St. Michael. It Is Just possi
ble that with the reindeer and with the
aid of Indians a small expedition might
be sent by this route.
"My idea is, however, that In March an
expedition will be sent over the Chiikat
pass by the Dalton trail. There are pro
visions In plenty at St. Michael. The last
I heard was that 5,000 or 6,000 tons of pro
visions were there and as steamships ply
betweeen and San Francisco the dan
ger of starvation 4 s not great."
"Do you think Alaska ehould be made a
territory?"
"I do, because by next summer I think
from 100.000 to 200,000 people will be tn the
Yukon country. My idea. la that two
territories should be made, and the Yukon
