ESTAELISHED 1865 NEWBERRY. S. C., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13. 1 rWW R 3,193.TwTn-1i A wwT?1ir 1Y L en- -n~ CONGRESS IS NOW IN EXTRA SESSION JOS. G . CANNON, OF ILLIONOIS, CHOSEN SPEAKER. The President's Message Was Short, Deal ing Solely With the Cuban Question. The fifty-eighth congress con vened in extraordinary session at noon on Monda y, in accordance with the proclamation of President Roose velt, for the purpose of enacting legislation necessary to make effec tive the Cuban reciprocity treaty. The day was devoted simply to per sonal greetings and organization. The house elected Jos. G. Cannon, of Illinois, speaker. THE PRESIDENT'S MFMSAGEt Tuesday's session of the senate was devoted exclusively to ttbe read4 ing of the Pr,_-sident's message in support of reciprocity wN'itlh Cuba. The message was very short, con taining less than r,c. words, and dealing entirely with the Cuban treaty, for the ratification of which the special session was called, afid urging that it be promptly ratified. The house was in session less than half an hour on Tuesday. The President's message was read. The speaker appointed the committees on rules and mileage, putting three republicans and two democrats on each. REORGANIZING COMMITTR''ES Action taken by the Republican caucus on Tuesday will no doubt displuce Senator Morgan as chair man of committee on inter-oceanic canals. The democratic steering committee, it is stated, recognizes the propriety of making the change and will aid in bringing it about by selecting Senator Morgan for the chairmanship of one of the impor tant minority committees. WRDNISDAY'S SRSSTON On Wednesday the senate got down to b'.isiness and received a number of petitions and also many bills. Nutierously signed petitions protested against. Senator Smoot, of Utah, remaining in the Sena-. The democratic stcering con illittee was in session before the senate met and again considered the Panama situation. No conclusion was reached but the indications are that the do-mocrats will attack the course of the administration on the isthmus with reference to the es tablishnment of the new republic of Pananma. RENOMINATION OF CRUM. Reorganization of tihe Committee May Re sult in Favorable Report on the Nomination. A dispatch fronm Washinigtoni to the News andl Courier says that President Roosevelt has again sent to the Senate thle nominat in of D r. Crtun to be collector ot the port of Charleston. Since ihe Seniat e comn mlittee oin comm icee reportied thle nom11iniation of Cr1iin there have been severalI changes in thle mnem bershi p of t hat conniiijtte'e. M asona of Illinois, and Jones, of Nevadla, Repulicans, and Vest and Turner, Democrats, have retired. The op p)osition to Crunm loses three votes, while Mason was a pronounced ad vocate of the negro collector. It is probable that the rerga..:a tion of the c:mmittee inav result in a favorable report on the Crum nomination, but the opposition on the minority side is sufficiently strong to prevent his confirination.
