On the floor of the senate the dieplay
of flowers was unusually beautiful even
for the opening day of a session of con
Kress. The odor of flwers filled the
chambers. The memorable scenes
enacted in the chamber during the last
seaalon, ami the momentous events
that have occurred since congress last
adjourned created a feeling of intense
expectancy on the part of the spectators
and the members of the senate. This
was made manifest by the long lines of

early arrival of the senators on the floor.

the members of the joint high com-'
lar occasion, animatel and brilliant.
There were more than the usual number
of diatinguislied personages in the
thronged galleries, including many rep
resentatives of foreign government,
high officials, and ladies and gentlemen
CMNnplcijous in social and political life.
The greetings of ihe members were most
cordial, and there was no outcropping of
partisan rancor to mar the occasion.
One of the most striking incidenta was
the cordial meeting between the floor
leaders of the respective 'sides, Messrs.
Dingley and Bailey. In view of the
gossip about the possibility of Mr Bailey
being deponed as the minority leader, it
is significant that the speaker named
Mr. Bailey as the minority member of
the committee to wait upon the presi
dent, an honor always bestowed opon
the recognized leader of the minority.
Speaker Reed received a warm wet-
come from both si iea of the house when
he ascended the roitrom to call the
house to order, but perhaps the greatest
personal ovation to any member wa
that given Major-General Wheeler, of
Alabama, who has not been seen by
many of his old colleigoes since he
went to the front at the bead of the
cavalry division of General Shatter's
army. Mr. W. A. Stone, of Penney!-
vania.McMillin, of Tennessee, and Mr.
Bayers, of Texas, who have been elected
governors of their respective states since
congress ailjwrned. were also over
whelmed with congratulations.

usually numerous and made the hall a
rentable bower of beautiful flowers.

the diplomatic corps appeared in the di

Sir Julian Pauncefote, ambassador of
Great Britain to the United States and
dean of the corps, with a party from the
British embassy. Mr. Wo Ting fang,
the Chinese minister, and party, and

The call of tha senate developed the
presence of 67 members. The usual
resolutions were offered and adopted.

the receipt of the president's message,
the senate took a recess of 30 minutes.
At 1:25 the committee appointed to
wait upon the president reported the
performance of its duties and announced
that the president would communicate
with the senate in writing. Scarcely
had the report been made when Pruden
entered the chamber and presented the
message. Hobart laid it beiore the
senate and the reading began at om.
During the recess of three-quarters of
an hour, while the senate was awaiting
the presentation of the message from the
preaident, the members of the joint high
commission held an informal levee,
greeting personally nearly all of the
members of the American senate.
The reading of the message occupied
two hours and 13 minutes. Many
persons remained in the galleries
throughout the reading, but, as is usual,
little attention was given to the presen
tation of the message, either in the
galleiles or on the floor, afier the first
Many of tho senators who had been
provided with printed copies of the
message retired either to the cloakrooms
or to the committee-rooms to read the
document at leisure. Not the slightest
demonstration occured during the read
ing of the message. When the clerk had
concluded the reading, Mason of Illinois
presented a telegram from Pritchard of
North Caioiina, announcing that Illness

The president's review of the causes

Washington, Dec. 5. After Senator

who were introduced to him, and de
voted what time was available daring
the leisure hours of the senate becoming
acquainted with those who will be his
colleagues tor four years. Mr. Simon

usually the place where new senators

that will be made after March

Simon is accompanied to Washington by
Graham Glass, secretary of the republi
can committee, who will remain in
Washington during the winter and act as
Senator Simon's clerk. In the biogra

congressional history today, nothing is
stated but the plain facts of his career
withnut any embellishments. ' ,

COXNISSIOMEIt AT PARI.
The Peace Treaty la Practically
Paris, Dec. 6. The peace treaty of
Paris is practically an accomplished fact.
Today's session disposed of the essentia)
festores of the treaty, which will be em
bodied In tbe following eight articles:
First The customary prelace of
treaties, in the nature of an expression
of amity and hope for'perpetual peace.
Second The relinquishment by Spain
of her sovereignty oyer Cuba.
Third The withdrawal of the Spanish
Fourth The relinquishment by Spain
of her sovereignty over Porto RM.
Fifth Spain's cession of tbe Philip
pines. Sixth The withdrawal of Ihe Spanish
Seventh Payment by the United
States of $20,000,000 for the Philippines
Eighth The provision for the "open
door" commercial policy in the Philip
pines. The rough draft of tbe treaty, which
may be considerably changed, covers
the proposals. It makes a long docu
ment, which Senator Davis, of tbe
United States peace commission, says
will be found to be one of the meet in
teresting papers of its character ever
written. 80 completely are the details
of the evacuation of the Philippines
stipulated that a commission, such as
arranged for the Spanish withdrawal
from the West Indies, will be unneces
sary. Among the questions not yet settled,
however, are the coaling station and re
ligious freedom of the Carolines, the
Spanish commission not having replied
to the American offer. Tbe Americans
have agreed to transport the Spanish
prisoners home, including the garrison
and sailors at Manila captured by Ad
miral Dewey and General Merrill, as
well as tbe soldiers and civilians held
by the Filipinos, whose return the
Americana have guaranteed. As com
pensation, Spain promises to liberate all
Cuban, Porto Rican and Philippine
political prisoners. Spanish soldiers
electing to remain in ttie colonies may
do so, but it is more a matter of economy
for the Americans to return the others,
as they must be fed as long as they are
kept and Spain is nnable to bear tbe ex
pense of the repatriation. Also, tbe
Americans Have rejected Spain's request
for shipping concessions for 10 years in
Cuban and Porto Bican waters, tbey
having given tbe Spanish comtniesioners
such poor consolation as the latter may
derive from permission to reapply,
when diplomatic relatione have been
renewed, for shipping concessions under
'be reciprocity scheme of tbe Dingley
law, for which Seoor Dupny de Lome
was negotiating In Washington when
tbe war broke out.
There are still under discussion eight
secondary subjects which tbe 8paniah
commissioners broached last week, in
cluding the status of patents snd copy
rights. The American commissioners
today handed to 8enor Monero Bios a
written reply covering these questions.
There will probably be no joint session
tomorrow, as the Spaniards desire time
to consider this document.
It waa at yesterday's session that the
Americans uncompromisingly rejected
Spain'a request that for a term of years
the ships of that comtry and its products
be sdmitted to Cuban and Porto Bican
ports under tbe same regulations and
customs tariffs as American ships and
products. Tbe Spanish commission for
some days bad been playing for this.
The Americans weie anxious for a de
cision on tbe question of a coaling station
in the Caroline islands, religions toler
ance in the Carolines and release of po
litical prisoners. The Spaniards were
unwilling to answer these points until
they heard what the Americans proposed
to do for their industries, which had
been built up by tbe Cuban and Porto
Rican trade. Tfcia is why Spain con
tended that the articles of tbe treaty
should be disposed of in their order,
while the Americans wanted first to set- '
tie their preseing needs. Tbe session of
yesterday was practically a fight on the
order of procedure Finally the Ameri
cans yielded, and then the Spaniards
proposed the shipping and commercial
contention which the Americans rejected
in its entirety. The session then ad
journed, with neither side ia an especi
ally amiable frame ol mind.
It is learned that there were differences
of opinion among tbe Americans on the
shipping question, and numerous tele
grams were exchanged with Washington,
Finally the American commission was
instructed to refuse, the principal reason
being that Porto Rico is about to be de
clared within the coast line of tbe United
States, while, as regards Cuba, authori
ties at Washington would make no
promises, as the American occupation
there is not flieJ and tbe future Cuban
government will make its own treaties.
Exactly what Spain requested was that
her ships and products should be ac
corded the same privileges in Cuba and
Porto Rico for a period of 10 years as bad
been conceded to 8pain in tbe Philip
pines. When the commissioners emerged
