IN .SESSION AGAIN.
Both Houses of Congress Convene ttt
Noon, With the Usual Cere­
monies.
Committees Appointed to Wait On the
President and Notify Hint ('011
gress I" Session.
After a Recess of an Hour the Mes­
sage Is Read In Both
Houses.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 5,—The encircling
galleries of the house, except those re­
served for the president and diplomatic
corps, which looked gloomy and vacant,
were filled to overflowing with the eager
nnd expectant persons, when Speaker
Crisp, dignified and stately, ascended
the rostram at high noon and rapped the
regular session of the Fifty-third con­
gress to order. Fully a00 members were
in their seats. Conspicuous upon the
floor were the two vacant chairs of
Representative O'Neill of Pennsylvania,
the "father of the house," and his col­
league, Mr. Lilley, the representative at
large from the Keystone state. Their
desks were draped in black and covered
with floral tributes. Among the dis­
tinguished visitors on the floor when the
house convened was ex-Postmaster Gen­
eral Don M. Dickinson of Michigan.
Rev. Bagby. in his invocation, referred
feelingly to the death of '-Father"
O'Neill and Mr. Lilley. According to
the rule at the opening of the session,
the speaker then directed the clerk to
call the roll in order to officially ascer­
tain the presence of a quorum.
Passed One Kill.
Chairman Sayers, from the committee
on appropriations, asked unanimous con­
sent for the consideration of a bill appro­
priating $50,000 additional to pay the
salaries of officials engaged in the en­
forcement of the Chinese deportation
and registration act of last May, and the
amendment to that act passed at the
extra session.
Mr. Baker of New York objected. He
afterwards withdrew his objection, how­
ever, and the resolution was passed.
Mr. Hines of Pennsylvania asked
unanimous consent for the consideration
of a resolution for the appointment of a
committee of live to investigate the Le­
high Valley railway strike, its causes,
the loss of life and property, and to rec­
ommend any feasible general legislation
for the prevention of strikes in the future.
Mr. Kilgore of Texas objected and the
resolution was referred under the rule.
Upon motion of Mr. Dockery, the
house then at 12:55 o'clock, took a re­
cess until 1:10 p. m.
At 1:25, two new members having
been sworn in, the committee appointed
by the house inarched down the senate
aisle and faced Mr. Wilson, the chair­
man, and announced that the president
would immediately communicate a
message in writing. The message was
then delivered to the speaker, and the
clerk began its reading.
THE SENATK.
Similar Opening Exercises to Those of the
Home.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 5.—The first sen­
ate session of the Fifty-third congress
convened at high noon pursuant to the
constitutional provisions.
"The inaudible and noiseless foot of
Time" had apparently tripped lightly
through the lives of senators during the
brief vacation period, and brighter faces
greeted one another than when 80 odd
days ago, tired and showing signs of a
parliamentary struggle unequaled in the
history of the government, the repre­
sentatives of the state left the National
Capitol. All traces of that memorable
battle seemed effaced, and the greeting
amongst senators bore the evidence of
warm fraternal friendship and personal
regard.
In the Galleries
large crowd had gathered to witness
the opening of the session, and the bright
colors in the ladies gowns and bonnets
were the more conspicuous because of
the sombre hued background. As the
massive clock over the main entrance
announced the hour of la o'clock the
blind chaplain was led up to the vice
president's desk, and after an eloquent
prayer, while all senators present in the
chamber remained standing, Vice Presi­
dent Stevenson called the senate to
order.
At the suggestion of Senator Sherman
the roll of the senate was called and 50
members responded. The usual resolu­
tions notifying the house of representa­
tives of the meeting of the senate and
the resolution for a committee of two
senators to join a similar committee of
the house
To Wait Upon the President
of the United States and inform him
that congress had assembled and was
ready to receive any communication he
may desire to make, were offered and
agreed to. The chairman appointed Mr.
McPherson (Dern., N. J.) and Mr. Sher­
man (Rep., O.) as the committee on the
part of the senate. After a resolution
had been adopted that the hour of daily
meeting of the senate shall be o'clock
meridian, on the motion of Senator
Harris, a recess at 12:10 was taken for
•ne hour to enable the committee to
Wait on the president.
At the expiration of the recess at 1:10
a.
m. the senate resumed its session, and
message from the honse of representa­
tives informing the senate that a
quorum of the house was present and of
the appointment of a committee to join
similar committee of the senate previ­
ously appointed to wait upon the presi­
dent. Then another recess of 20 min­
utes was taken upon motion of Mr.
(Dem., Tenn.) Promptly at
1:38, the senate resumed its session, and
Mr. Mcl herson of the committee to wait
upon tho president, uppeared at the bar
of tho senate and announced thai the
president would immediately communi­
cate with the house in writing.
Secretary Pruden at once steppod for­
ward and delivered the message and it
was laid before the sonate by the vice
president who directed its reading.
Tho secretary of the senate, Mr. Cox,
then began the reading of the message.
These Attracted Attention.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 4.—The recom­
mendations relative to an international
monetary conference and the request for
further authority for the issue of bonds
caused many significant shakes of the
head on the part of extreme silver men.
The president's bold endorsement of the
pension policy of the interior depart­
ment, of civil service reform and his ap­
peal for rigid economy in appropriations
also attracted attention.
Polled On the Income Tax.
NEW YORK, Dec. 5.—A morning paper
prints opinions of 171 members of con­
gress on the subject of taxing incomes.
Of these 71 favor an income tax in some
form, 62 oppose it, 5 are against it, but
may reconsider, while 33 asked to be ex­
cused from expressing an opinion.
The Stein Failure.
NEW YORK, Dec. 5.—The examination
of the affairs of the firm of Stein & Co.,
which failed for over $1,000,000 on Fri­
day, continued under the direction of
Receiver Wiles, who said that the
straightening out would take longer
than was at first thought. He also said
that the action of the London and River
Platte bank and the German bank of
London, enjoining the receiver from
disposing of certain warehouse receipts
was not unexpected. Senior Partner
Abe Stein is on his way to this country.
It is thought his presence will expedite
the receiver's work.
Knjoiii tho New York Central.
i'frcw YORK, Dec. 5.—The motion of
Emil Colberman and tho stockholders of
the New York and Northern railroad to
enjoin the New York Central and Hud­
son River railroad from voting on tho
majority of stock which it held of the
New York and Northern, has been de­
nied by Justice Andrews of the supreme
court.
Crew Narrowly Escaped.
PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 5. During a
heavy blow on the coast the two-masted
schooner, M. E. Bayard, Captain Camp,
from New York to Norfolk, Va., while
attempting to make the Delaware break­
water for harbor, da.slied against the
rock built ice breaker and was almost
rent asunder. The vessel immediately
filled with water and her crew of five
men narrowly escaped death, but were
finally rescued by the life savers.
Ituciiig in Mcxico.
CITY OF MEXICO, Dec. 5.—The in­
augural of the Penon race track brought
out the largest and most enthusiastic
crowd ever assembled in Mexico. Presi­
dent Diaz and Mrs. Diaz, the cabinet
and diplomatic corps, were present, to­
gether with the elite.of Mexican society.
The greatest enthusiasm prevailed
throughout. In the pools the Mexicans
learned readily the American system of
betting and laid heavy wagers, es­
pecially on Mexican horses. There were
about 3,000 carriages inside the grounds
and two military bands furnished music.
Propeller Ashore.
MICHIGAN CITY, Ind., Dec. 5.—The
propeller F. W. Wheeler, bound from
Buffalo, N. Y., for Chicago, went
ashore here at 3:30 p. m., with 3,100
tons of coal aboard. She is damaged,
and if the storm continues may go to
pieces. The steamer is owned by B.
Whitney, Jr., of Detroit, and is valued
at |120,000, with no insurance. The
crew of 16 meu were rescued by the
Michigan City lifesavers, amid a blind­
ing snow storm and a furious sea.
The Cable Broke.
ALLENTOWN, Pa., Dec. 5.—Ice cansed
the cable to break at Joel Neff & Co.'s
slate quarry, near Slatington, as three
men were being lowered into the pit to
begin their day's work. The men were
precipitated to the bottom of the pit and
instantly killed. They were Frank
Mearn, Charles Schlesier and an un­
known Hungarian.
Driven Insane by a Fire.
BELOiT,Wis..
Dec. 5.—Mrs. Meta Sage
was badly cut on one of her arms and
Miss Lillie Larson rendered temporarily
insane from afire in the house they oc­
cupied. Miss Larson thought that Mrs.
Sage and her daughter had been burned
to death, and she became delirious and
has not as yet recovered her reason.
KILLED THREE.
Edward Cady Slays Two Children and
Then Commits Suicide.
ERIE, Pa., Dec. 5.—Edward Cady,
aged 38, killed his two children and put
a bullet into his own brain during the
morning. The victims were a boy and a
girl, aged 6 and 8. Cady was a morphine
fiend, and seemed to labor under the im­
pression that his family and himself
woald become hopelessly insane if
allowed to live.
Met the Cat.
CHICAGO, Dec. 5.—The eastbound lines
have met the cut of the Erie on grain
and grain products from Chicago, mak­
ing a rate of 20 cents to New York, 22
cents to Boston, and 18 cents to Phila­
delphia, other points proportionate. The
rate on provisions is very unsteady and
it may take a tumble soon.
Denver Newspaper Man Dead.
DENVER, Dec. 5.—Sumner Johnson,
city editor of The Republican for several
yean, died Sunday of typhoid fever.
War News Confirmed.
ELPASO, Tex., Dec. 5.—Persons who
arrived from Cluhuahua confirm re­
ports of revolutionists of a severe battle
between the federal troops and the in­
surgents.
18 X0T PATERNAL.
Little Likelihood That Congress Will
Do Anything to Assist the
riicinploycd.
It Would lie Too Heavy a Bttrdrn
and the Treasury Is Too
Low,
Income Tax Has Narrowed Down to a
Tax on Corporations and Patent
Medicines.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 1.—Letters re­
ceived here and inquiry among senators
and members indicate that there are
many people throughout the country
asking themselves whether congress can
be counted upon during the approaching
session to do anything in the interest of
the communities which have suffered
nnusual hardships because of disasters
or dull times. Reports are generally to
the effect that a hard winter is to be ex­
pected in various sections, and that
actual suffering will be experienced in
many places. City and country alike
report unusual numbers out of
employment. In the Western ag­
ricultural regioas, the low price
of grain and livestock, in the South the
cotton depression, in the Rocky moun­
tains, the shutting down of many of
many of the silver mines, in the towns
of New England and the Eastern and
Middle states the closing of manufac­
turing establishments and the reduction
of forces are reported. While all these
causes have had the effect of driving
members to the large cities, thus in­
creasing the quota of idle people, un­
usually large this season because of the
general and local cauees in the larger
centers of population. Many people
seem to think that at such a time con­
gress ought to furnish assistance in some
way, either by gratuitous distribution
in specially marked cases, or by means
of public works.
Not a l'iiteriiiil Government.
Congressmen, when asked to express
their views of the probability of such
assistance being given, shake their heads
significantly. They say this is not a
paternal government, and each com­
munity will have to depend upon its
own resources. When Senator Hoar,
during the extra session, made an effort
at the instance of Miss Clara Barton of
the Red Cross society to secure an ap
propriation of sjyiO.OOO for the relief of
the Sea island sufferers of South Caro­
lina, he met with stubborn resistance
at the hands of Senators Turpie and
Coekrell. Senator Butler, representing
the state in which these unfortunate
people reside, while not antagonizing
the bill, said he did not endorse the
principle, and Senator Pelfer said if gov­
ernment aid was to be furnished in that
instance he should demand like assist
ance for the people of the West, upon
whom no less a calamity had fallen. It
was thus made apparent that if a
gratuity should be rendered in any one
case it would be demanded in various
others, and, as a consequence, Mr. Hoar
was unable to secure the slightest con­
sideration for his appropriation.
Uncle Saw Hard Up Too.
With reference to the question of in­
creasing the outlay upon public works,
the fact is pointed out that if this plan
should be attempted it would have to be
undertaken upon so large a scale to fur­
nish real relief that the treasury would
not be able to meet the extra demand
upon it, and it is shown that the United
States treasury, like many individuals,
is in hard straits at the present time.
Even in the case of the public buildings
authorized by acts of congress, no extra
efforts are being made to have the work
begun or pushed along because of the
condition of the public funds, and of the
fact that a deficit instead of 1 surplus is
in prospect.
INCOMES AND 1NTEUNAL KEVENIE.
What Will Probably He Done b.v the
Ways and Means Committee.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 1—Those who
have been counting ujion an internal rev­
enue bill to be reported by the Demo­
cratic members of the committee on
ways and means, which would revolu­
tionize the whisky and tobacco tax, may
yet be disappointed. The whole ques­
tion of internal revenue has been dis­
cussed pro and con by the committee
and a wide range of plans canvassed.
The question has been found to be one
of the most difficult of all that the com­
mittee has been called upon to deal with
and it is asserted by those in a position
to know, that there are members of the
committe who
Have Changed Their Views
on material points since the exchange of
opinion was begun and since their re­
search and investigations have been di­
rected into different channels by fellow
members and by outsiders. It is, for
instance, said that almost all of the
members were favorable to a heavy
increase of the tax on whisky and to­
bacco, when they first met as a commit­
tee, but it is now asserted that the views
of many of them have undergone such a
radical change upon this question that
it is even doubtful whether a majority
can be found favoring any increase
whatever upon the present rates upon
these articles, and that if there should
be any increase it will grudgingly be
given, and only because the reduction of
duty proposed by the tariff bill will ren­
der it necesrary to increase the collec­
tion from internal revenue sources.
Later information is confirmatory of
the prediction heretofore sent out that
the income tax proposition of which so
much has been said of late will not ex­
tend much beyond the imposition of a
tax upon the net earnings of corpora­
tions and upon bequests. It is quite
certain that the bill will contain provi­
sions of this kind, and also that a
.Stiff Tax on Proprietary Medicines
will be levied. This latter tax is meet­
ing with general favor, because of the
prevailing belief that large profits are
mode upon this class of medicines, and
uLso because of the simplicity of collect­
ing the tax, which can be done by the
Bale
of stamp!!. It is not believed that
the committee will find many sittings
necessary to complete the internal rev­
enue bill, and the prediction is made
that it will be sufficiently advanced to
make public Friday night or Saturday.
The one great problem which is agitat­
ing the committee is that of finding a
means for making good the deficiency
which will be caused by the tariff reduc­
tions, and some of the members are
Baid
to have reached the conclusion that do
the best they may there will still be im­
perfections of this character when the
bill shall have passed the house whicn
will be left to the senate to deal with,
and they count upon many changes in
the latter body. It is even thus early
hinted that the senate will report a sub­
stitute for the entire bill.
ADMIRAL STANTON ARRIVES.
The Recalled Naval Otlicer Reaches New
York From ISIo.
NEW YORK, Dec. 1.—Admiral Stan­
ton, who was relieved of his command
of the South American squadron for
•'saluting the insurgent Admiral Mello
in Rio harbor," arrived here on the
steamship Spree. In conversation with
a representative of the Associated Press,
Who boarded the Spree at Quarantine
and came up to New York with him,
the admiral said:
"I sailed from Rio on Oct. 31 on the
steamship Thames, my intention being
to sail for New York on the City of
Paris, which I missed by six hours. I
then arranged to sail on the Spree from
Southampton Nov. 22.
The Associated Press man asked Ad
mirnl Stanton if he would say anything
about ui„ incident in Rio harbor which
resulted in his being relieved of his com­
mand.
"I will have to ask you to excuse me
from speaking of that," he replied. "I
really know nothing about it. I re­
ceived a dispatch from the navy depart­
ment ordering my immediate return but
I have no official information as to why
I am recalled. I, of course, know why,
but could not speak of it nor say any­
thing on the subject until I have re­
ported to the secretary of the navy. I
have had scarcely any opportunity to
see the newspapers since I sailed from
Rio, and have only seen the English pa­
pers."
The admiral will go to his home at
New London, Conn., and await further
orders from Washington. He said the
outcome of the Brazilian rebellion was
difficult to predict. No great damage
had been done on either side.
EXTEND THE MINING LAWS.
A Bill to Make Them Applicable to
Minnesota.
WASHINGTON-, Dec. 1.—Congressman
Baldwin will introduce immediately
after congress assembles a bill extending
the general mining laws to Minnesota.
This is to provide for withdrawing min­
eral lands in the northern part of Minne­
sota from hetnestead entry. Minnesota,
Wisconsin and Michigan were excepted
from mining laws applicable to other
states. The bill is being drawn by Land
Commissioner Lamoreaux. It will pro­
vide that homesteads known to be on
mineral lands shall be cancelled by land
officers as in violation of the homestead
law, to prevent wholesale grabbing of
mining claims along Rainy river.
Wisconsin's Crack Shot.
WHITEHALL, Wis., Dec. 1. To
Trempeleau county belongs the honor of

receiving from the officials of the Colum­
bian shooting match of Chicago a gold
medal valued at !j30 and four cash
prizes, amounting to $372, which he
won at their match held during the

meet in Minneapolis to arrange their re­
ports and recommendations for presenta­
tion to the convention.
After Lottery Companion*
KANSAS CITY. Dec. 1.—County At­
torney Cobb of Wyandotte county, peti­
tioned District Judge Alden for injunc­
tions restraining a number of lottery

granted injunctions restraining twelve
dealers from carrying on their business.
Steamer on Fire.

The fire broke out in the foreliold,
amongst the lot of chemicals, and was
with great difficulty subdued. Cause

Was of Hecvnt Date.
PARIS, Dec. t.—It would seem that
the trouble between the Prince and
Princess of Colonua. which has finally
led to legal proceedings, is of recent
date, as the couple were living here to­
gether a month ago, and, apparently,
happily.
Was a Dangrrnu* Machine.

MRS. LEASE SCORES.
Two u/ Her Eneinluw in Kanaa* Ousted
FROM Official 1'O«IMOMK.
OLATHE, Kan., Dec. 5. -Warfare that
has been going on among the head offi­
cers of the deaf and dumb institution of
this city for two months has resulted in
the discharge by the board of charities
of Steward T. L. Dixon and liis wife,
the matron.
Judge Dixon denounces Mrs. M. E.
Lease in connection with his dismissal,
and in an interview said he would soon
"expose her doings." "When I get
through exposing her," he vehemently
exclaimed, "no political party will
claim her." Dixon is high in the coun­
cils of the Populist party.
SUSl'END OPERATIONS.
A St. Paul Bond Company Quits Pending
the Resnlt of Uncle Sam'sRaid.
ST. PAUL, Dec. 5.—The North Ameri­
can Bond Investment company has de­
cided to suspend active operations for
the present. This is the result of the
warfare made upon such companies by

cago, and it is proposed by the St. Paul
company to await the result of an appeal
to a higher court.
I'ere Uyacinttie's Aim.

jects of the new religious society com­
posed of Catholics and Protestants, called
the National Society of Evangelization,
and founded bv himself and Pastor Mat
tedal, ex-president of the consistory of
the Lutheran church. Pere Hyacinthe
said skepticism arose from the formal­
ism and inclusiveism in the routine of
the various Christian churches. He ap­
pealed for a union of Catholics and
Protestants as realizing the idea of the
new church ajul embracing all those
known as Christians.

PLEASANT
THE NCXT MORNING I FEEL BRIGHT AND
