Joint Resolutions of Vld
Variety Introduced. .
WashlnRton, Dec. 14. The assem
bling to-day of the members of the
Fifty Ninth Congress for their first
session, was marked by no unusual In
cidents but It attracted to the capltol
crowds of spectators who took n lively
interest in the proceedings. Society
was out In force and fllled the reserved
galleries, while visitors, unable to find
seats, roamed the corridors to catch
glimpse of public men. 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.
One. noticeable feature was the ab
sence of flowers, which heretofore have
been common to both chambers, due to
a resolution adopted unanimously by
the. 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. The Sen
ate was in session only - minutes. Sin-
ators Aldrlch of Rhode Island, Knox of
Pennsylvania, Warner of Missouri and
I'razltr of Tennessee, took the ii.it h of
ollicu and an adjournment was taken as
a mail; of respect to the lato Senator
Piatt of Connecticut.
Strps preliminary to organization wero
taken by the House. Joseph G, Cannon of
Illinois was re-elected speaker, the mem
bers of the House took the oath of otrice;
the officers and floor employes of the body
were re-elected; the rules of tlio last Con
gress were adopted and members drew for
seats, all of which was enlivened by tho
presence of thn crowds in the galleries,
the animation ot the reunion of veteran
members and the Intel est of new ones.
In n brief speech against the adop
tion of the rules, the minority leader.
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.
SELECTION OF SPEAKER.
Spmkir Cannon was placed In nomina
tion for speaker by Mr. Hepburn of Iowa
nd the Iirst applause of tli
low, d. Mr. William of Mississippi was
nonilnatfd on behalf of the minority by
Mr, Henry of Texas, provoking demo
cratic applause. The toll call for the elec
tion of sjnaker nt once proceeded.
C.innon received '13 votes and Wlllnm
II. Cannon accepted the position say
ing, "1 thank you for the honor you have
conferred on me, particularly as I may
be able to consider your action as an
endorrement of my services as speaker
during the last Congress. 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.

Chauiplalii has been promulgated by tho

Assistant Sieretury Reynolds has been In
vestigating tile customs work through
out Now Kncland with a view to the rear
rangement of districts. Tills work has
now been completed, and the customs dls
Iricls of Ilurllngton ami Memphremagog,
Vt., have been attached to the third spe
cial agency district, the headqiiitrters of
which has been transferred from Ogdens
burg to Houses, Point. 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.
