liioa (o the big capital building on open
ing davr-, and today there was an added
interest on account of the changes in
volved and the large influx of new blood.
It was an orderly crowd which camo
through the rain in piivate conveyances,
in streetcars and on foot. By 10:30
o'clock, an 'hour and a half before the
time of meeting, tho public galleries of
both houees were filled and the eager
crowd had overflowed into tho outer cor
ridors. The 'senate was called to order
promptly at noon. The rice-president
administered the cath to tho senators
elect, and tho usual formal resolutions
At 1:30 it was announced that tho
president's message would not bo sub
mitted today, and the senate adjourned.
Tho republican senators caucused half
an hour, but adjourned until Wednesday
without taking action on reorganization.
IN THIS IIOL'SE.
The 54th house of representatives was
called to order at noon by Clerk Kerr.
The roll was called and tho clerk an
nounced 341 of the 330 members present,
and that no credentials had been re
ceived from the tenth New York and
first Nevada districts.
Kerr then called for nominations for
speaker. No nominating speeches were
made, but Grosvenor of Obiu, named
Iteed, Sayres of Texas, Crisp and Kern
of Nebraska, Bell of Colorado.
The result of the vote for speaker was :
IteeU, 234; Criep, 05; Bell, 6; Culber
son, (dexn.) 1. Total 330. The an
nouncement of Heed's election was
greeted with great applause, which was
continued when he ascended tho ros
trum, acd his tpeech was also punctu
ated with applauee. It was as follows:
'"It will not le unbecoming in me, I
hope, if I acknowledge to tLia assembly
that it is very agreeable to me to stand
once more in the place I left four years
ago. Of the past, however, I shall not
speak, for tho past speaks for itself in
terms more fitting and appropriate than
any words which could come from my
lips. No' shall I speak of the future,
for we are nof putting off the harness,
but putting it on. Yet, I think I can
venture to say of the futuro, in tho light
of the past, that if we do something
which for the moment seems inadequate,
it may be that time, which has justified
it for us on many occasions, may do so
again. Those who have acted with wis
dom heretofore may be fairly exacted
to act with wisdom heieafter. I am

duties sflects tho whole people of the
United States I invoke their considerate
judgement. So far as it affects the
members of this house, 1 ask from both
chambers that cordial co-operation, with
out which I cannot hopo to succeed,
assuring tbem that no effort on my p art
will be spared to aid them in the per
formance of their duties by that entire
impartiality which is their jnst due."
The republican caucus nominees for
house offi.crs wero promptly elected.
By unanimous consent Newlands, of
Nevada and Cummings of New York,
whose credentials had not arrived, were
swern in with the other members.
The drawing of seats being concluded,
the house adjourned till tomorrow.
Powers Will Insis.
CoNbTATiNorLc, Dec. I. While bo
ng desirous of not doing anything which
would in any way tend to induce disturb
ances or to hinder tho work of restoring
order, the poweis again appear unani
mously resolved to insist upon their de
mand for extra guardships. In conse
quence, the ambassadors have arranged
for a meeting tomorrow (Monday) to
contider what action is necesiary in
view of tho sultan's continued objection
to granting firmans. In the meanwhile
the impression is being conveyed to tho
public that the sultan has won a great
victory. This tends to make tho matter
more delicate to handle, as to demon
etrate that sucli is not the caeo is almost
certain to lead to an outbreak even more
serious than the oue which gave a pre
ext for the demand for extra guard-
Turkish official, in discussing tho
withdrawal of tho Driad, intimated that
the lowers objected to any pon"cr taking
tho lead in any action lin Turkey. In
other words, if'action is to bo taken it
should bo a combined action upon the
part of the owers. Thus, it is intimated,
if tho passage of tho Dardanelles is to bo
forced it should bo dono by the warships
oi an u.o powers interested. J Ins was
the original understanding, hut Great
Britain, it appears, was not dispoeed to
delay matters beyond a certain point
Another diplomat said it looked hb if
Great Britain had attained tho object she
had in view, namely, to show thu sultan
and powers as well that while being tie
slrouB of acting in accord with the other
powcrB, bur majesty's government was
prepared to act alone- if necessity should
arise, and if the powers desiro concerted
action they must act promptly or Great
Britain will take the initiative.
The so-called firing on the British shii
Loch Rannocli in thu Dardanelles is said
by Turkish ofllcials to ho easily explained
Thoy say tho Loch Ranuoch arrived
after sundown mid instead of uuchuriug
attempted to proceed and was signaled
from tho shoro by n guu shot to bring up
As sho did not do so a second shot was
fired, und the Loch Rauuoch let go her
anchor. If tho mutter had beeu as seri
ous as thu Odessa correspondent of tho
.Daily Nows made out, tho captain of thu
Loch Rannoch would certainly havo
made complaint at the British embassy
A great deal of excitement was caused
here today by tho report that ex-Sultan
Mohammed Murad, who was disposed on
tho ground of idiocy, August 31, 187G,
had escaped from tho Yildiz Kiosk,
where ho is kept a close prisoner. Tho
report, it appears, grew out of the flight
of Murad Bey, tho imperial commissioner
of tho council of public debt, who was
also suspected of having relations with
tho young Turk party. Murad, it seems,
had been watched by the police, and was
suddenly summoned to the palace to ex
plain his conduct. Ho gave the sultan
what appeared to be a satisfactory ex
planation of tho charges against him,
but the matter being pressed further,
Murad fled on board a Russian ship.
The First Thing to Do.
Nkw Yokk, Dec, 2. A dispatch to the
Herald from Vienna aays :
The ambassador of a great power Baid
to a correspondent last night:
"The first thing to be done is to
strengthen tho position of the sultan, as
the question or the additional guard
ships has lessened lib authority with
his subjects and may cause an outburst
of fanaticism. Austria has changed the
direction of her policy and is now march
ing hand in hand with Englaud."
The sultan has complained to the Eng
lish ambassador of the false reports that
have appeared in the English press.
There is no truth in the report that
Austria is massing troops in Bosnia.
The Czar's Opinion.
New York, Dec. 2. A special to
Herald from St. Petersburg says :
The czar, who takes a keen personal
interest in Turkev, as in all other impor
tant questions, said while speaking very
earnestly on the subject at the palace of
"The sultan should be givea time to
carry out the prumised reforms, which,
under the circumstances, are not easy of
These few words throw more light up
on the question than the reams of haute
politique which are being daily pub
lished. Notwithstanding contradictions, the
news sent from hero that there was an
entente by Russia, Germany and France
to pieventthe disintegration of tho
Turkish empire remains perfectly true.

takeoff his tail and hook it onto the

and I, who have ruled for thousands of
years, yield to you."
A lot of petty thievery has been going
on in this neighborhood for the past
month which we have tefraincd from
mentioning as it was supposed it would
stop after the turkeys had been gathered
up, but they only seem to be encouraged
and are now visiting the grain bins and
fruit cellars. Enough is known that the
parties are not stealing for reason they
are iu want, but because they were born
to steal and are just fulfilling their miss
ion in this mundane spbeic.

England is aggressive. She is de
termined to enlarge her national phy
lacteries. Her intense greed knows no
bounds, She bows to no principle but
that of expediency. She is pragmatic
in the extreme. She is continually
reaching out her tentacles like the octo
pus to draw in everything that offers
sustenance. Her policy is self aggran
dizement, no m atter what nations
rights are assailed, if the way to the ac
quisition of new territory bids favorable
to success. By her ainrressiveness she
has extended her dominion to every
quarter of the globe. It is time the
other enlightened powers of the earth
combine to put a check upon her. The
United States should rigidly enforce the
Monroe doctrine. She has been med
dling with Nicaragua to induce it to
annul the contract with citizens of the
United States for the construction of the
canal across its territory. This inter
fering with our interest on this conti
nent ought to be rebuked forthwith and
she given to understand that this gov-
e rumens has rights that must be re
spected and that we will tolerate no
further meddling in our affairs.
She is also trying to gobble up a large
slice off of Alaska. She is ' 'bulldozine"
the Venezuelans, determined to force
that weak government to relinquish a
slice of territory which she covets. If
the United States would show a little
spirit by way of self protection and give
that blustering bragadocio, Johnny
Bull, to understand that she has en
croached on American rights far enough,
and give her also to nuderstand that we
mean it, she would stop to consider
whether or not it is good policy to press
her claims further. We demand a vie-
orous foreign policy, of "hands off" of
The American Economist furnishes
some important statistics on labor strikes
for the year 1891-04. These figures are
the more important, as they show the
difference in the number and costs of
these strikes under a protective tariff and
when the country was afflicted with a
free trade administration. During 1891-
92 the country was nnder an administra
tion favorable to protection. In that
time there were 3.010 strikes which
made idle 503,733 employes, with a wage
loss of $29,314,033, and a loss to employ
ers of 13,C34,937. Durintr the later
period to June 30, 1894, the country was
under the Cleveland administration with
all its free trade tendencies, and in eigh
teen months of this period there were
5,202 strikes, causing the idleness of
747,930 employes, with a wage loss of
$45,203,151, and a loss to employers of
$20,594,265,. Tnese figures show that in
the jear and a lialiaaderva-irse .trade
demccractic administration there were
242,245 more men idle by strikes than in
the previous two years under a republi
can administration, and that the loss of
wages to employes was $15,979,318
greater. There is good reason for the
people wanting to return to the good
days of republican protection.
Tho Grant's Pass Courier says: The
pine needle mouey $500 el it, has been
deposited in tbe bank here and cannot
be taken out except for the purchase of
pine needles at $5 a ton. Tbe plant is
expected the last of the week, and
shortly after will begin grinding St.
Jacob's oil out of Josephine county's
evergreens and drying the pulp for
medicated mattresses and pillows.
Some delay has been encountered in get
ting up the necessary machinery in San
Francisco, but the factory will no doubt
be in successful operation by the 15lh of
December. Owners of pine needle or
chards are beginning to look down on

John T. Hammond and W. B. Has
brouk, representing the letter-carriers of
the United States has approved tbe rec

granting the carriers a

enacted into a law. Tbe report of first
issistant Postmaster-General Jones
makes this recommendation.
The McKinley Tariff law may have
not been perfect. No human law is, and
yet thero never was a time during the
time it was in operation when the gov
ernment had to borrow money to pay its
running expenses. Tho Republican
Record. Edison looks for a gold mining boom
in this country as a result of the fact
that new methods secure a profit in
mines that have been closed because
they were too expensive to work. The
Kaffir excitement has served to call at
tention to the far greater gold resources
of the United States.
The official statistics prove that the
excess of our imports over our exports
during the first ten months of the
present year was about $125,002,000
greater than iu the corresponding
period of last year. This shows the
practical result of the Democratic tariff
pohev, and at the same time helps to
explain the outflow of gold to Europe-.
