had their beginnings uo one could say

Big crowds were there, but not so big

stood under the stand reserved Tor tho

but a sea or upturned races from the steps

waiters In the distance might be heard
the rovcllle of stnut-Iunged buglers, the
roll of the assemblj drum, or even the
spirited music or e irlj bandmen Under
the influence or this and the accumulating
numbers, the crowd warmed up as it
grew , and two Im rs berore there was any
hope or seei lg the awaited spectacle the
crevices of the groups of waiters had all
filled up, and the gathering ussumed the
proportions of a multitude
Tho police kept passages clear for the
arrival or diplomats, Senators and their
mends and the Executives, actual and
elect, as thev drove up under the arcade
on the Senate side There was really very
little cheering for Mr Cleveland and Mr
McKlnlev, indeed, they seemed to be
scarcely observed, and the cheering all
went for others
The crowd was rull of the inevitable in
divielualities There was the alwajs with

One fellow had some Democratic roosters
rampant, unsold from the last inaugura

upon them, turned them upside elown and
was barking In a ting bong strain, "Grov er,

the special committee appointed at the last
regular meeting of the chamber to conrer
with the new administration and urge the
consideration or the currencv question at
the contemplated special session of Con

subject the committee had addressed to
President elect McKinley The letter says
In p irt
"We think wo rcHect the conviction
which obtains with manj who attended
tho sound money convention at Indian
apolis that lavva which would provide
Tor more even distribution ot currency
would disarm the arguments which have
driven inanj Western and Southern voters
into the Tree silver camp, and it is, there
rore, deemed or the utmost importance
that the rirancial question be considered
in the extra session ir no stepb can be
taken to revise our bauking and cur
rency law s until Congress meets in regu
lar session, we rear that nothing will be
accomplished in time to deplete the
ranks ot the Tree silver party of such
voters, who have no real interest in
silver, and no special krve for it, ex
cepting that, in their minds, It would
remedj the scarcity of circulating medium
from which their section surrers, and we
will stand in danger or the lower House

"We desire again to call jour atten

This committee ieiieve that while lack
ot levenue has done much to imrair the
credit ot the government, the e.ils ex

that tho long and continued errort to
rorce silver leglation, the constant and
peristent attacks on capital ami corpora

desire in manj sections to retrain the
collections of debts, and the existence or

laws, have all done their rull share in
bringing on the existing condition or

"The process or liquidation In the country
