In the Senate the pioceeillngs wero brief, The House was In session for more than three hours and while the pro ceedings followed the programme that lias marked the opening of Congress for muny years, thorn was enough nf Intel est to hold a large audience dur ing the entire time.

Senate and to an order of the speaker of the House. Senators Allison and Morgan were ap pointed by Vice-President Fairbanks as a committee to notify the President that Congress was ready to lecelve any com munication he dcslicd to make.

Mr. Williams of Mississippi, touched on the interest of t;,r country in tariff legislation nnd told of tho new republi can "Ideas" which were being wafted to Washington on breezes from every part of the country. These, be said, might be properly legislated for shoild the, "minority of the majority" stand ;i(h the democratic members in oppos ing the adoption of the old rules and forming now ones which would permit consideration of sueli legislation as popular opinion might dictate. A committee was appointed to act with the Senate committee in notify ing President Roosevelt that Congress was ready to transact business, the rules committee and the committee on mileage were appointed, the House ad journed after a session wbieli lasted three and a half hours in compliance with resolutions announcing the deatli of Senator Piatt of Connecticut and Representative Marsh of Illinois.

The House Is powerless without a uuoiuni. Therefore, I -isk of you not only charity for nnd patience with my own short comings as presiding ofllcer, but also prompt at tendance and diligence, on your part, which ulone can make our coming ses sion rdvantageous to the country.

N. Y. The object of altering the district Hues is to pUc" the whole of Lake Champlaln in one dis trict. Heretofore the western side was iimler one ofliclal and the eastern side under mint her. Wringing Vermont and not tin rn New York into one district con solidates under 11 single official nil the cus toms work o ftho commercial gateway to Canada, comprising the ports of Ugdens- butg. Houses Point, and Malont, N. Y and Rlchfotd and Newport, Kive great trunk lines of railroad cross the border within the limits ot the new district, and tho special agency business of the lot can be hnndled more efficiently under tho direction ot one ofliclal at Houses Point, instead ot tho business on tho western side of Lake Champlaln being transacted through Ogdensburg and that of the eastern side through Portland, Me. In order that the addition of Vermont to eastern New York may not make the third special agency district unwielilly, the dis trict ol Oswego lias been lopped off the western side and attached to the fourth district, with headquarters at Buffalo.
