Cannon called the body to order, few
members were in their seats, but soon
after It took on the usual appearance
of a session.
A prolonged discussion was precipi
tated of the conference report on a
bill prohibiting the selection of timber
lands In lieu of lands in forest re
serves. The report was agreed to and
the bill was passed.
At 10:40 o'clock the House took a
recess for 15 minutes. At its conclu

the committee on appropriations. In
accordance with custom, gave a re

the present Congress. The 'total per

explained, were 5697,048,104, while the
estimates for the next fiscal year were
5725,590,515. If there were no addi

appointed to join a similar committee
from the Senate to wait on the Presl

had completed its business and was
ready to adjourn. The Speaker ap
pointed Payne (Rep.. N. Y.), Hepburn
(Rep., Ia.) and De Armond (Dern Mo.).
At 11:10 a recess for 20 minutes was
taken. Immediately thereafter Payne
announced there would be a "joint cau

said there were occasions when a mild
Republican like himself could be per
mitted to preside over a "Democratic"
caucus and when a distinguished Demo

Hay (Dem. - Va.), chairman of the
regular Democratic caucus, then took
the chair and In humorous vein said
the occasion was the most unique in
the political history of the country. A
pleasing incident, said to be without
precedent, then followed. Speaker
Cannon was presented with a hand
Rome loving-cup, the tribute of affec
tion and esteem of the members, re
gardless of party. The presentation
speech was made by Boutell (Rep., 111.)
and was punctuated throughout with
applause, the members several times
rising en masse and cheering. He was
folloVcd by Williams (Dem., Miss.), the
minority leader, who also delivered a
most feeling and appropriate address.
'Amid deafening applause Speaker Can

"A gift from master to servant humbles
the recipient. A gift from servant to
master embarrasses the master. A gift
from equal to equal, when prompted by
confidence and esteem, is 'like unto apples

who compose the National House of Rep

that I am one of .you. I am 'more grati

Clark (Dem. Mo.) produced a second dem

'Williams (Dem. Miss.), the minority lead

to respond he was accorded the same
ppontaneous and general applause given
to the Speaker. He said in part:
'I have been touched by the words of
ny friend from Missouri. My colleagues,
I have felt at times the burden of ap
prehended, even approaching, failure. In
attending to the duties which you have
laid on me. I will, therefore, only say
now that It affords me, and will afford me
hereafter, unceasing pleasure to know
that you are pleased to say that I have
measurably well succeeded. It affords me
the same degree of pleasure to know
that you are pleased to say or that you
are pleased to applaud the gentleman
from Missouri when he said that In what
ever measure 1 might have succeeded or
bailed I had tried to do my work, and had
succeeded thus far, at any rate, in in
dulging in no port of enmity, no sort of
animosity and no sort of malice."

"Having heard much of the great curative power of your
Peruna, we concluded to try It. For colds and dyspepsia,
we have found It to be an excellent remedy."
FOR many yars the clergy have been
praising Peruna. By the humblest
pastor and the most exalted bishop,
Peruna Is held In high esteem.
These professional gentlemen come In
contact with the facts of society. They
are acquainted with the homes and know
the real life of the people.
They have seen Peruna in thousands
of households. They know of its bene
ficial results. They hear It discussed
by their parishioners and praised by all
It is therefore no wonder that the
clergymen almost unanimously believe
in Peruna. '
Remarkable Cures Effected.
Many remarkable cures have been
made among the clergy themselves by
Peruna. The vocation of preaching Is a
constant strain to the voice.
Diseases of the larynx and the lungs
are common among the preachers. Pc-
them were present at the hour of meet
ing. Other arrangements had been made
over night for the reception of Invited
guests. The change consisted principally
in placing as many extra chairs on the
floor as space would permit. Many ex
Senators and most of the newly-elected
proximate amount appropriated this ees-
The Senate soon found Itself In the pre
dicament of being In a position to work,
but without having anything to do. As
a consequence, it sat much of the two
hours between the time of meeting and
the beginning of the Inaugural ceremonies
in an Informal manner. Business began
with the adoption of a resolution making
provision for the payment of expenses
attendant upon the Inaugural.
Allison then made his annual statement
concerning the appropriations made dur
ing the session. He said tbat,iwhile ac
curate figures could not be given, the ap
proximate amount appropriated this sea
sion was $818,000,000, as against 5781,000,000
last year. The estimated revenues for
next year were 5726,000,000. Allison ex
pressed the opinion that the deficit for
the fiscal year beginning next July would
be no greater than that for the year which
will end on that date.
For some time thereafter the business
consisted In receiving members from the
House and In the announcement by the
presiding officer of his signature to bills.
At 10:45 a recess was taken for SO min
utes. About 11 o'clock the members of Presi
dent Roosevelt's household and the friends
and kinsfolk be had Invited to be of his
family party to witness the Inaugural
ceremonies at the Capitol arrived and
were shown to the seats reserved for
them. Soon afterward the members of

Lulu Fairbanks, Mrs. J. L. Griffiths. J. L.

chief counsel for James II. Peabody in
his contest for the office of Governor, con
tinued his argument before, the joint con
vention of the General Assembly today In
favor of ousting Governor Alva Adams
and seating the contestor. Having spoken
one hour yesterday, Mr. Waldron - had
four hours remaining of the allotted time
for his opening address. Representatives

was not crowded, but nearly all the seats
were occupied. Only persons holding
tickets are admitted, and the number or
tickets for the public is limited to BOO.
The two contestants were In the audience

Having laid down and elaborated on the
proposition that the Legislature Is not
sitting as a Judicial body or In a Judicial
capacity, but as a legislative body "to
exercise a political function," Mr. Wal
dron today proceeded to discuss the law
and the evidence In the case, though he
declared that he was undertaking a
method he was not called upon to assume
merely because there were Republicans
who had "such a lofty conception of their
duty as to require a preponderernce of
evidence in deciding the case."
Mr. Waldron dwelt on the alleged Ille
gality of the practice of assisting Illit
erate voters without first having them
swear to their Inability to read or write
the English language. In nearly all of
the 10 precincts in this city which Gov
ernor Peabody asks to havo thrown out,
he said- the law was not obeyed in this
respect. As no record was kept of the il
literates, as the law requires, it was im
possible to separate the good from the
Mr. Waldron also touched on what he
called the conspiracy on the part of Dem
ocratic officeholders to carry the election
in Denver for Adams.
On the question of the recbeck of
voters, which the Democrats say was
worthless, he said that every obstacle was
put in the way of t.ne Republicans to pre
vent tbcm from getting correct lists of
voters. Notwithstanding the Incomplete
lists furnished the Republicans, ho said,
a recheck showed that 6000 names were

In regard to the testimony of Supreme
Court watchers, who testified as to the
regularity of the election, he said, they
knew no more of the manner In which
crooked elections were conducted than
they knew of Sanscrit, and, therefore,
ther- testimony was worthless.
The testimony taken before notaries
public, contradicting the recheckers, was
ridiculed by Mr. Waldron, who said it was
worthless, as it was easy to produce a
man to swear he had qualified and voted
at the nlacft alleged, a if t tn v. -,.-.
men vote under assumed names. He de-
ienaea tne nanawnung experts, declaring
that their testimony was correct In prac
tically every case.
He ridiculed the method In which the
Democrats had witnesses Identify their
ballots before the committee, and said
that the witnesses were mistaken in their
Identifications. He said that. In stuffing

with this terrible disease for more
than 20 years, until since I have been
using Peruna, which has relieved me
of the trouble.

spent a great deal of hard earned
money far them, hut I found nothing
so effectual la the cure of catarrh
as the great medicine, Peruna.

Mr. Waldron touched on the alleged
frauds in Adams. Conejos, Las Animas
and Pueblo Counties, which, he contended,
were all In favor of the Democrats. If
the precincts IA these counties where Il
literate voters were allowed1 to vote with
out being sworn be thrown out. as he
said they should be under the law, Mr.
Peabodya plurality, he said, would be In
creased by nearly 3000.
Mr. Waldron elected to take up the en
tire day In his presentation of the case of
his client, and to reserve but two hours
for his closing speech. He closed his ar
gument with an eloquent appeal to the
Assembly to seat Peabody.
The attorneys for Governor Adams will
have eight hours, beginning Monday, and
continuing until 3P.il. Tuesday, to pre
sent their case. Mr. Waldron will make
hjs closing address Tuesday afternoon.
On Wednesday the discussion will be
open to the members of the Legislature,
each member being limited to ten min

of this privilege or transfer their time to
fellow-members, voting will not begin be

GRAFT ON THE GAS MONOPOLY
New York State Senators Accused of
Negotiating for Bribes.
NEW YORK, March 4. The Evening
World today says that "It is charged,
without the slightest equivocation, that a
Democratic States Senator, representing

several Republicans of the State Senate
57500 each to Influence them In Joining

vent the passage of bills that might hurt

According to the paper. It Is further "as

Throat Affected by Catarrh.
Rev. H. W. Tate. 471 S. 11th Street,
Columbus, Ohio, writes:
"For several years I have been
troubled with a peculiar spasmodic af
fection of the throat. It would seize
me suddenly, and for a few minutes I
would be unable to speak audibly, and my
breath would be greatly Interfered with.
I would be obliged to gasp for breath.
"I finally concluded that It was some
catarrhal affection which probably
excited the spasm. It Interfered with
my vocation ns a preacher, attacking
me occasionally Ik the pulpit.
"I had heard so much about Peruna as
a catarrh remedy that I determined to

trouble has disappeared. I feel sure
that Peruna has greatly benefited me."

his Inaugural address which surprised his
hearers by its brevity. As the ceremony
closed he was again greeted by tho roar
ing cheers of the immense throng. Ac
companied by hia escort ana iouowea Dy
tnjops and civilian paraders, he started
for the White House. It was tne most
perfect column that ever marched in an
inaugural parade, though its numbers
were less than former ones. General
Chaffee had Insisted that a brigade of the
National Guard from each state should
be the maximum representation. Never
had there been so perfect a regular army
column in any previous National pageant.
While the whole military column was a
marvel and a delight, as Indicated by the
continuing tornado of cheers where it
passed, there were elements of special in
terest. The Ninth Cavalry, that splendid
colored regiment, received marked atten
tion. The crowds went wild over the sec
tion of Rough Riders. The scouts and the
Porto Rico battalion excited Intense In
terest. The brigade of cadet battalions
from many states, organized by General
Chaffee, attracted universal attention and
received unbounded applause. The civic
grand division of eight brigades in three
divisions, made up of over 50 organlza-
.tlons, was In every respect better organ
ized than ever before.
Gorgeous Scenes at Night.
Turning from the pageant of the day,
the doubled population of the city dis
posed itself from the three Imposing spec
tacles of the night, the promenade at the
Pension Office, misnamed a ball; the fire
works on the White House lot, and the
dazzling street decorations. The attend
ance at the ball was limited to 12,000 or
15,000. The streot decorations were viewed
"by a solid marching column filling the
wide pavements of the avenue and the
street itself, and reaching for 2 miles.
No such brilliant scheme of decoration
and illumination was ever witnessed be
fore in this country, or In any other. The
dome of the Capitol stood white against
the darkness, the illuminations of search
lights In the top of the Washington Monu
ment being made visible for many miles.
The fireworks exceeded all previous dis
plays. There were no ordinary pieces.
Rockets were discarded. The ' set pieces
were of large dimensions such as a wheel
more than 100 feet In diameter, a Presi
dential .piece 200 feet in length, and a Na
tional flag 300 feet long, carried up 1000
feet by balloons and there developed In
the sight of the city and beyond.
The decorations of the ballroom success
fully conformed to the agreement that
every inauguration should excel all pre

"I unhesitatingly recommend It to all
sufferers from the above troubles."

used any length of time without ac

VERY FEW PEOPLE
Are Free From Some Form of Indi
gestion. Very few people are free from some
form of indigestion, but scarcely two
will have the same symptoms.
Some suffer mo3t directly after eating,
bloating from gas in stomach and bowels,
others have heartburn or sour risings,
a till others have palpitation of the heart,
headaches, sleeplessness, pains in chest
and under shoulder blades, some have
extreme nervousness, as in nervous dys
pepsia. But whatever tha symptoms may be,
the cause in all cases of Indigestion; is tha
same, that Is the stomach for soms
reason falls to properly and promptly
digest what Is eaten.
This Is the whole story of stomach
troubles in a nutshell. The stomach must
have rest and assistance and Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets give it both by sup
plying those natural digestives which
every weak stomach lacks, owing to the
failure of the- peptic glands In the stom
ach to secrete sufficient acid and pepsin
to thoroughly digest and assimilate tha
One. grain of the active . principle -In
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will digest
SCOO grains of meat, eggs or other whole
some food, and this claim lias been
proven by actual experiment, which, any
one can perform for himself in the fol
lowing manner: Cut a hard-boiled egg
lntp very small pieces, as It would be if
masticated; place tha egg and two or
three of the tablets In a bottle or Jar
containing warm water heated to SS de
grees (the temperature of the body) and
keep It at this temperature for three
and one-half hours, at the end of-which
time the egg will be as completely .di
gested as It would have been in ths
healthy stomach of a hungry boy.
The point of this experiment Is that
what Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will do
to the egg In the bottle they will do
to the egg or meat in the stomach and
nothing else will rest and Invigorate
the stomach so safely and effectually.
Even a little child can 'take Stuart's
Tablets with safety and benefit if its
digestion is weak, and the thousands of
cures accomplisheu by their regular
daily use. are easily explained when It
Is understood that they are composed
of vegetable essences, aseptic, pepsin,
diastase and Golden Seal, which mingle
with the food and digest it thoroughly,
giving the over-worked stomach a chance
Dieting never cures Dyspepsia, neither
do pills and cathartic medicines, wlilch
simply irritate and Inflame the" .Intes
tines. When enough food is eaten and promDt-
y digested there will be no constlnatinn.
nor In fact will there be disease of
any kind Because good digestion means
good nealtn to every organ.
The merit and success of Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets are world-wide and they
are sold at the moderate- price of Sft
cents .for full-sized package. In' every
