Wsshtr.gtoii, January 2, 1902. The beautiful garment of unanimi which clothed the republican maj at the opening of Congress is rent astunder during the hollday wms and there ts reason to believe when Congress reconvenes the sqpblican brethren will dwell togeth. Ii a harmony very similar to that uted to the famous cats of Likenny. Already there are the protection wing and the modifie.i tiou wing and it is not impro 'e that there will develop an ad .slstration wing in the near future. members who composed the first ed faction are, from conviction the pursunason of their favored es, committed to the mrst me protection. They are un ag to concede the lowering of the. on the least important schedule, though by so doing the pacifica of the Phillipines may be ex ad or the annexation of Cuba tea. The second faction believes in some cations of the House Phi;ippine bill because they conitider that concessions will further the of General Chatffe and the UCommtssion. They are n fa:vor grantiug some measure of recipro to Cuba, notwitlh.tanding the ests of Mr. Oxnard and the ishments of the beet sugar . They are, to a slight extent, ia in the policy of President !ley laid down-at Buffalo. But they are not prepared to go to eztent to insure Cuban prosperity b advocated by the President. Its third faction devel",ps it will a support of the President's views regard to Cuban reciprocity, but more to sustain Mr. Roosevelt in stand he has taken in regard to SSchley controversy and his efforts uphold Secretary Long. There wany members of Congress who that the President has been of "bad politics" in not heed tbs wishes of the people in this and It is anticipated that when congressmen who have spent holidays in their districts return 'Washington the sentiment will definite form. Any effort to the affairs of the Navy Depart. will be bitterly opposed by the nt who well knows that were COressional investigation under Snothing could save from ig-. s defeat the Secretary of the and the entire clique which has duously persecuted Admiral Mr. Roosevelt will be sup In both House and Senate by mronal friends and by a number :Osgreesmen who believe that a course will put them in a posi. to influence a large share of I tial patronage. is little doubt but that the sjozity of the people would to see Congress go to almost hsngth to vindicate Admiral and expose those who have uusponsible for his humilitation. *other hand Mr. Roosevelt willi his influence to prevent even the vindication of Schley which result from Congress passlng a• ag him full pay, instead of Mklmd pay which he would other- . draw. Whether the republican ' will heed the wishes of I Soastituents or the wishes of 2 to House remains to be seen, tere are many, even among the -an members, who believe that opinion will compel Congress h Ia violation of the President's 4 has nJust developed that the 8 o friction between Germany th United States and of German on Venezuelan territory which r Utouved such widespread pub-' have emanated from the Navy t which sought this extra- i method of compelling favor- a olgressional action on the re- F dations of Secretary Long "ecreased Navy.

Senators McMillan and is Nelson are frank in their stateme'ts :1y of disapproval of the bill and it is ve known that Senator Elkins is not well he disposed towards it. It is further .h. believed that even if the bill were to at get through the Senate it would be of defeated in the louse. Speaker he Henderson has himself notified Sen eŽt ator Ianrna that, in case the hill e- comes before his committee, he will 1- vote with the Dcmocrats for its re. detest. .st A number of Senators have their )n eye on a very attractive junket. They e'i desire to be sent as a committee of rst Congress to represent the legislative n brunch of the government at the be coronation of Edward I'II. Senator c, Cullom w11 introduce in the Senate a a. resolution providing for such a deie - gatil(n soon aft.:r Congress reassem a : bles and it seemns prob:ble that It Iwill pass the Scn:ite. Whether or not it will pass the [louse is another 1e question. The delegation wouldl, of at course, !cc!udc a numbelur of repre-enu le tatives and whth all expenses paindi re out of the Treasury there is every Dr reasons to believe tial the trip would prove a most delightful one, but, as Sonly a few members of the bHousi, 1e could be selected and all would pro- I r bab'y be called to account by their constituents for voting for such an t expensive junket, its fate in that it body is dubious. t The extent to which the sentiment I ,y in favor of furthr consideration of the merits of the Panama canal route 1 is grailg is quite remarkalh!e and it r is by no means likely that either the Mt Morgan or the Hepburn bill will pass t n the Senate without an extensive and ;o comprehensive discussion of the merits of the Panama route. There e is no partisan division on the subject o and opinions are being formed re n gardless of party affiliation. While I there is no tendency to underestimate s the efforts of the Walker Commission n to arrive at a correct discussion, it is q it believed that the price of $109,000,- e 000, which the French company a o placed on their property, was sufl--. t. cient in itself to warrant the Com e mission in its adverse recommends- t e tion and now that it seems probable c that the plant can be bought for a e $40,000,000, many members believe that it should receive further consid I eration.

The pictorial - features are headed by the second part of The Journal's picture story of "What a Girl Do'es at College," wh ch shows the athletic side of col lege life, and there are two page's devoted to pretty rural scenes "Along Country Roads." Eight pages are given up to the new fashion delpart ment under the editorship of Virginia Louis Ralstou, and all of the regular editorial departments are excellent.
