Washington, Dec. 6. It was an interest
ing occnpiitinn to watch the floor of the
house yesterday during the time in which
the members were assembling and until the
brief session was ended by adjournment.
Members greeted each other generally,
whether fellow partisans or bitter oppo

Proceedings in Congress.
. Washington, Dec. 6. The senate began
its second session of the Fifty-se -ond con
gress yesterday at noon. Seventy senators
were present, but for the first time in forty
years Dtunis Murphy, the official reporter,
was abst ut from his desk, being ill. The
committee to wait on the preside t was ap
pointed and performed its duty, where
upon tl e senate adjourned for the day.
In the house the same routine was gone
through. Durborow introduced a bill re
pealing the Sunday closing clause of the
World's fair bill. Dockery introduced a
resolution requiring the appropriations
committee to prepare a statement showing
the exact condition of the government as to
income and expenses; also for aco nmission
to ascertain whether the government can

Tom Reed on the Hindsight.
Tom Keed, a little thinner than usual,
lumbered into his house and to his seat,
laying his loss of flesh to grief over the re
eult of the general election, "although," he
said, "I had no doubt from the first of the
way it was going." Tim Campbell, from
de Ate" of New York, put in an early ap
pearance, wearing as usual a fresh white
tie and a Prince A'lx.Tt suit of black. AH
of ti.e C'hicirroTiiemliers were on the ground
early all save Xe wherry. So far as could
be h arned he has not reached the city.
Colonel Ab Taylor, looking a little fatter
than when he left, was the first on hand.
He said he felt uncommonly well and the
improvement wus doubtless due, he said,
to bis satisfaction at not having to serve
longer than the present term.
The Distinction of Tom McCann.
McCann, cler.n shaven and spruce, came
next. He was spied as he entered the door,
and there wns a rush for him, and for a
half hour he was subjected to steady con
gratulations upon being re-elected by a
larger majority than that received by any

REPUBLICAN SENATORS CAUCUS.
Discussing the Qnestinn of the Control of
Washington, Dec. 6. "Shall there be
any new states admitted at this session? "
was the principal question before the con
ference of Republican senators yesterday
afternoon. Other matters related to the
organization of committees, etc, but not
to an order of business, which was gener
ally supposed to be the object of their as
sembling. The discussion grew out of the
consideration of the question whether or
not it were desirable or expedient for the
Republicans to try to retain control of the
senate organisation. On this point there
to something of the humorous in the atti
tude of leading members of both parties.
Too Marrow for Cockrell.
Republicans like Hale say that the tail
must go with the hide, so to speak; that no
effort should be made by the Republicans
to direct or control the organization of the
aenate in the next congress, so that the
Democrats will have undisputed possession
of all branches of the government. On the
other hand there are Democrat who seem
to be not desirous of assuming the response
at the rate of 2 per cent, per annum, the
bonds to be known as the treasut y defi
ciency bonds. The bonds and inter-est on
them are to be exempt from the pnyment
of all taxes or duti-js of the United btates.
as we.ll us from taxation in any fort i. The
secretary is authorized to dispose of the
bonds at not less than their par val le, and
apply the proceeds to the payment of the
dehciency m the United States tr.-asury,
and for no other purpose.
They Are After the Marshal u
Then there were two bills aimed at the
United States election laws. One by Oates
repeals the section of the law prov icing for
supervisors aud deputy marshals at elec

makes it unlawf nl for an officer of t be fed
eral government to interfere with el actions
instates, and repeals all laws which uu-
thorize officers of the United State to in
terfere with elections in states. A!uchler
of Pennsylvania introduced in the 1 ouse a
bill transferring the bureau of pent ions or
pension office to the war departme it, and
placing it under the supervision of the sec
retary of war.

Cleveland, whom he introduced to the peo

parlor, reappearing with Mrs. Cleveland
and Baby Hut h, whom he introduced. The
assemblage responded with cheers. Cleve

feel as if I knew you already, having been
a neighbor of yours last winter. If you
will form in line it will be a pleasure for
me to shake hands with you." Amid a re
newal of cheers a line was formed. Cleve
land grasped the hand of each person as iie
passed, with a pleasant wonl for all. There
were several ladies present.
Future Movement Indefinite.
Cleveland said in response to an inquiry
that he had formed no plans for the imme
diate future. Fremsn said last night that
the president-elect would prolmbly re
main with him for a few days. He might
go to Xew York on Wednesday or Thurs
day. When Cleveland arrived at the Lake

with three hearty cheers. He recognized
