Sam had but one little spot in the Pa

lies on the regular route between San
that should happen to become disabled
at sea, but fortunately there has never
been any occasion to seek relief of that
kind, and the coal and provisions have
been stolen by whalers that have cruised
around that way. Midway island is the
scene of Frank Stockton's droll storie6
about the "Remarkable Adventures of
Mrs. Ayleshine and Mrs. Leeks." Theee
women, passengers on a vessel that was
wrecked, drifted in a boat to Midway
island and lived there for a considerable
time under peculiar oiroumstanoee.
Midway island is about the center of
the north Pacific. About 2,000 miles
southeast is Honolulu, aboat the same
distance to the southwest is Quam
about 4,000 miles almost direotly south
ward is Tutuila, and 4,000 miles to the
southwest are the Philippines. Now, if
Uncle Sam could get an island or two off
the ooast of South America—whioh
would not be very difficult if he went
about it in the proper way—we wquld
be pretty well fixed for naval stations in
the Pacific ocean. Puerto Rico answers
the purpose in the northern part of the
West Indies, but we ought to have
another naval station down near the
isthmus, and Gorn island, whioh is in
dispute between Colombia, Costa Kica
and Nioaragua, would be just the thing.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 5.—The opening
of the Fifty-sixth congress at noon at
tracted the widespread attention which
always attaches to the aunual assem
bling of the national lawmakers. There
was added interest in the event this
year, for the many far reaching ques
tions awaiting consideration gave un
usual importance to the return of con
gress. Asidp from this, the Roberts
caso introduced a phase w)iicli prom
ised something outside of the ordinary
developments of an opening day.

fares leading to the building presented
a gay an«l animated appearance.
Within the building all was bustle and
excitement long before the hour for
calling the houses to order. The out«-r
doors were open to all and through
these flowed continuous streams of hu
manity until the groat corridors, gal
leries and rotundas were fairly packed.
As early as 10:"0 the conspicuous
figures of congress began to arrive, and
this served to give the waiting throng*
a temporary diversion. General Hen
derson went direct to the speaker's
private office, where he shared his time
with the house leaders and with those
pleading for admission cards.
Representative liichardson of Tennes
see, the Democratic house leader, was
also early on the scene, conferring with
his lieutenants. Shortly before 11
o'clock Mr. Roberts of Utah, in silk
hat and black frock suit, made his way
through the crowd to the members,
private lobby. Here bechanced to meet
Mr. Richardson and the two held a
short conference as to whether Mr.
Roberta should seek to address the
house. A buzz of comment followed
the gentleman from Utah wherever he
went, but there was no disrespectful
As the minute hand of the clock op
posite the speaker's rostrum overtook
the hour hand at noon, the gavel of tho
clerk of the last house, Major McDow
ell, descended with a bang. The inde
scribable buzz ceased. The members
arose aud the spectators in the galleries
bowed their heads.
After the invocation the reading clerk
began calling the roll and a minute
later the buzz had recommenced, mak'
inga noisy background for the staccato
notes of the clerk as he called out the
names. Mr. Roberts sat listening in
tently for his name, and when it was
called he responded "Here" in a loud
voice. But he looked nervous and ill at
ease. There were no demonstrations
during the roll call. When it was con
cluded, Clerk McDowell announced
that members had answered to their
names, a quorum.

The election of speaker was an
nounced as the first business to be
transacted. Henderson of Iowa was
nominated by the Republicans, and
Richardson of Tennessee by the Demo
crats. The vote resulted: Henderson,

General Henderson was escorted to
the chair by a committee and made a
brief speech of thanks and acceptance.
In accordance with the time honored
custom, the oldest member of the house
in point of service, Mr.Harmer of Penn
sylvania, administered the oath to the
speaker. The speaker then announced
that the oath would be administered to
the members by states. As the names
of the members were called they ap
peared at the bar in groups of aboat A
dozen, and with raised hands, were
sworn in by the speaker.
OIJMM to Mr. Roberta.
When the name of Brigham H. Rob
erts was reached in the house roll call,
the Utah member-elect proceeded alone
to the area in front of the speaker's
desk and awaited the administration of
the oath. At the same time Repreeen
tative Taylor of Ohio secured recogni
tion, and amidst breathless interest,
protested against the swearing ip of
Roberts, on the ground of his being a
poly gam is t, and not a properly natural
ized American citizen. Mr. Taylor
spoke calmly and dispassionately. Mr.
Roberts stood gazing intently at him.
