FOREBAST OF THE
WORK OF CONGRESS NOT LIKELY THAT MAJORITY CAN COME TO ANY AGREE MENT. Washington, Dec. 1—Never at the beginning of congress have the con gressional leaders of both parties found themselves more at sea con cerning legislation than they are on the eve of the convening of the present assembly of the national leg isature, which will take place to morrow at noon. Very little except the financial sit uation is engaging the attention of any member of either house, and all the members of both houses, wheth er leaders or followers, confess their inability to forecast what may be done on that subject. All of them lament the present situation, but all of them do not believe that the remedy for it is to be found in leg isation. Those who believe that such a remedy will prove effective are in the majority, but their opinions vary so widely that all admit the great difficulty of getting together. There is some general division along party lines, but there is also great divergence of views among both republicans and democrats. In view of this state of affairs, it is evident that very lttle attention will be given to other questions until there can be some crystalization of thought on the stiuation. In hs speech of acceptance last night, Speaker Cannon intimated the possibility of some amendments to the railroad rate law, and but for the disturbance in money centers there is little doubt that this would have been undertaken during the session. It is stll possble that some thing may be attempted in that line, but all plans to that end are now quite nebulous. The democrats have already in dicated a purpose of trying to force the tariff to the front, but the re publicans are so largely in the ma jority in both houses and are so well united in their purpose of postponing action upon this important subject until after the presidential election that their opponents have very little hope of accomplishing anything be yond getting recognition for a few speeches for campaign consumption. Among other subjects which will receive serious attention will be the question of taxing sales made on stock exchanges, and while it is ap preciated that even an effort in this direction may affect the market, there are a number of senators and members who attribute most of the disturbances in the market to this speculative process and who would like to make the road as rocky as possible for itl It is too early, how ever, to say whether such efforts at legislation will be successful. There will be some anti-trust talk, but the financial panic will probably have the effect of curtailing it to a considerable extent. The Philippines tariff bill and the bill for the admission of New Mexico and Arizona as states will be intro duced early in the session and it is probable that all will receive con siderable attention. It is also understood that the president will suggest an enlarge ment of the navy. When congress does not seem entirely prepared matter, the prospect is good for .some increase of the navy. A number of resolutions of in quiry growing out of the financial sit uation will be introduced by demo cratic senators. Some of these will make inquiry concerning the recent issue of certificates by the treasury department i some will propound questions concerning the distribution in the national banks of the treasury reserve, and still others will deal with recent phases of the financial question. Even now the men who do the most to formulate the policies of the two houses are putting their heads together, with a view to securing an adjournment of the session at as early a date as possible. They are using the fact that the national con ventions will probably be held in June to influence both republicans and democrats, and the response re ceived is generally favorable to the view that the session should come to a close not later than the last oi May. The speaker will make an effort to get the house committees in working order before the holidays. Ring's Little Liver Pills wake up lazy livers, clean the system and clear the skin.

Boise, Ida., Dec. 1.—One hundred talesmen will report for examination as to their qualifications to sit as jurors in the trial of George A. Pet tibone, charged with complicity in the murder of Steunenberg, in the district court here tomorrow There is little probability that a jury can be secured from the present venire. The defendant's health is still very poor and he is barely able to climb the two fights of stairs to the court room. He continues to give as surances, however .that he will be able to sit through the trial. The elimination of testimony in regard to the Colorado labor war, which was struck out by Judge Wood in the Heywood trial will mean the saving of much time, and it is be lieved that the taking of testimony will not require over four weeks.
