A VARIETY OF OPINIONS.
Senators and Representatives Discuss
iiAmiiMiios, uec. i. comments in
41 - .,
iuu euimie ou tue message were gener
ally favorable to the tenor of tho mes
eago on Cuba, though thero were Eome
opiweing views expressed. A large
number of senators, including a major
ity of the members of the committee on
foreign relations, excused themselves
from expressing opinions, on the ground
that they had not given it careful read
Mr. Mitchell, of Oregon Thoajeesage
seems to leave the Cuban situation as
ho found it, refraining from any rec
ommendation as to congressional action
Ilio president's quasi indorsement of
the existing tariff act will scarcely be
acceptable to republicans who believe in
tho protective policy.
Mr. Tettigrew It is the firit time in
hietory an executive, who is ihe repre
sentative of a defeated pattr, ever glori
fied, as President Cleveland docs in the
first paragraph of this message, over the
success at the polls of his part 'a oppo
Mr. Pritchard of North Carolina The
only noteworthy part of the message was
that devoted to Cuba, and 00 that ques
tion it reminds me of an old rhyme:
"He wired in and wired out,
And left the public still in doubt."
Senator Chandler Its treatment of
Cuba i elaborate and strong. While
not going as far as I wished it would, by
implication from the last sentences it
very plainly says that if Spain does cot
suppress the rebellion very quickl , the
united States will be sure to intervene
to secure the independence of the
islands. The most notable feature in
the message is the omission to menticn
the free coinage of silver or the currency
iceation, except to make the useless rec
ommendation that greenbacks be re
tired or be not reissued when Ihey come
to the treasury. The brief allueions to
the tariff reiterate the claim of Mr.
Cleveland that tits amount uf duty
always increases the cost to that amount,
but his feeble treatment of ihe taiiff
question, compared wilh the vehement
assault made on that tariff in previous
messages, is notable. The lone and
temper of the whole message is excel
lent, and the fervid patriotism and im
partial views shown in it ate doubtless
Senator Tillman It is commonplace.
The best thing about it is that it is the
last we will have from that source, at
least, the last annual message.
Senator Morgan, of Alatama In the
president's recital cf the facts and b:s
statement of the moral duties of the
United States toward the Cuban belliger
ents, there ij a response lo the senti
ment of the people, and I believe of the
senate. In asserting that no other na
tion must interfere in the affairs of Cuba
there is the most decisive and practical
declaration of the Monroe doctrine yet
made. But while the present govern
ment warns off all other nations, the
message calls the great civil war an in-
sunection, and on this false declaration
justifies active aid to Spain in furnish
ing all kinds of military monitions, while
it refuses our people the right to send
anything, even bread or medicine to the
insuruents. I regret that iternational
action is so illogu-al and unjust, that it
must still cost many lives and terrible
suffering to a people who are admitted
by the message to he at war for the sake
of liberty, and not as a means of gain
ing power for ersonal ends.
New York, Dec. 7. The World pub
lishes the following on tho views of a
prominent Cuban on the president's
Pisdel Fierot, of the junta The mes
sage is an enigma and paizlc. I should
have a far higher regard for Mr. Cleve
land had he simply announced that the
United States government was opposed
to the cause of Cuban liberty, and sym
pathized with Spain's effort to crush the
revolution. The message will not make
a particle of difference one wav or the
other so far as the revolution is con
cerned. If the soldiers of Gomez and
.uaceo realize tnat tue measure means
that the United Slates will not raise a
finger to stop Weyler'a butcheries, they
will fight with that terrible energy born
of despair. Cleveland's talk about
autonomy only shows how littlo he
really knons of the real state cf affairs.
The idea of autonomy is dead. Scarcely
anyono in Cuba, e en among tho Span
ish themselves, cousider it seriously.
Tho autonomist party went to pieces
months ago. For us now there aro left
only tho two alternatives independence
Congress in Session.
Washington, Dec. 7. The United
States Eenate began tho second sessiou of
the 51th congress with crowded galler
ies and with that accompaniment of
activity and of greeting that usually at
tends tho reassembling of congress.
Rut the upper branch of congress never
puts aside its dignity, and the meeting
developed no demonstrations of dra
matic incident. The reading of the
presidents niossage was tho feature of
tho proceedings, and beyouud this 110
attempt was mado to outer upon tho
business of tho sessiou. To many of the
forcigu representatives occupying the
diplomatic gallery, tho mossago had spe
cinl interest and significance, owing to
the part they had taken in tho couspic-
tiou9 foreitrn .events lo which 1 he presi
At the conclusion of the reading of the
president's message, the senate ad
journed at 3 :35 p. m.
IN THE HOUSE.
The house presented an animated
scene for an hour before Speaker Reed
appeared. The galleries, to which the
publ ic was admitted without cards, wero
crowned neiore u o clock, while the ; orongni in. mo increase in lmmtgra
balls were jammed with those unable to ! tionjover the preceding year amounted to
gain entrance. The reserved galleries
filled mora slowly. From the floor rose
a buzz of many voices, as the members
exchanged greetings. Pages were scur
rying about, carrying to members on the
floor floral pieces from their constituents
or admiring friends. Among the mem-
bars thus honored was Loud of California.
In the midst of the general rejoicing
there was an air of sadness as Ihe mem
bers glanced at the black pall which
covered the conspicuous desk of the late
ex-Speaker Crisp, the democratic leader,
On it were cut flowers. There were
many conspicuous personages on the
floor and in the galleries.
As the hands of the clock pointed to
12, Speaker Reed quietly ascended the
rostrum looking bronzed and vigorous.
The silver mace was lifted to its place
on the green malachite pedastal to the
right of the rostrum and wilh a crack of
the gavel the speaker called the house
to order. The hum of conversation
finally ceased. Rev. Cowder of Michi
gan, chaplain of the house, offered a sim-
ple.but itrpressive prayer, The roll-call
showed the presence of 271 members.
THE REPUBLICAN CAUCUS.
When the determination was reached
to hold a republican caucus tomorrow,
an interesting situation at once asserted
itself. Republican senators who bolted
the St. Louis platform and ticket were
an unknown quantity in their political
affiliations, and whether or not to invite
them to attend the republican caucus
was an undecided matter. Many con
ferences were held, Senator Chandler, of
New Hampshire, being particularly
active in recommending that the bolters
be notified of th- aueus, which is
practically an inviiati to attend. Sen
ator Chandler took ti e fositiou that the
votes of these men ,-a!d be needed in
passing a tariff bill. - ntor .Quay, it is
understood, took the m" view. It was
finally concluded that ';-ice8 should he
sent them, as before.
This result places the burden of action
on the Eilver republicans. They con
ferred until late tonight to settle on a
line of policy. Senator Dubois, of
Idaho, is, or was, secretary of the caucus
He will resign this place, as he has been
more active than many of the others in
the recent campaign, and was one of
the most urgent in advocacy of a bolt at
Secretary OIney to the President.
Washington, Dec. 7. For the first
time within the memory of the oldest of
ficials, the secretary of state has made a
regular report to the president for trans
mission to congress like the reports of
other officers of the cabinet. This re
port was laid before congress today ss
an appendix to the president's message.
It treats of many details cf our rela
tions during the past year with foreign
governments not touched npon at all in
the message or more briefly treated. OI
ney sets out in detail a story the growth
of the Cuban rebellion, the present evil
state of affairs on the island, and further
facts upon which the president bases his
broad etatement and conclusions.
The secretary's estimate of the present
situation is disclosed in the following
paragraph, made after the preliminary
statement of the destruction of the in
dustrial resources of Cuba,
"From whatever point of view we re
gard the matter, it is impossible not to
discern that a state of things exist; at
our doors alike dangerous to good rela
tions, destructive to legitimate com
merce, fatal to the internal resoutces of
Cuba, and most vexatious and trying
beeauso entailing on this government
excessive burdens in its domestic admin
istration and in its outward relations.
This situation cannot indefinitely con
tinue without growing still worse, and
the time may not be far distant when
the United States must seiously consider
whether its rich is and interests as well
as its international duties, in view of its
peculiar relations to tho island, do not
call lor some ueciuea cuange in liis poi
ity hitherto pursued.

The number of immigrants arrived in
the United States daring the fiscal year
was 343,207, of which 340,468 were per
mitted to land and 270!) were debarred
on various grounds prescribed by law
and returned to the countries whence
they came at the expense of the eteatn-
ship companies by which they were
84,131. It is reported that, with Eonie
exceptions, the immigrants of tbe past
year were cf a hardy laboring class, able
to earn a support for themselves, and it
is estimated that. the money broueht
with them amounted to at least $5,000,-
000, though it was probably much in ex
cess of that eom, since only those hay
ing less than 30 are required to disclose
the exact amount, and it is known (hat
many brought considerable sums ol
money to buy land and bmld homes.
Including all the immigrants arriving
who were over 14 years of age, 28.63 per
cent were illiterate, us against 20.37 per
cent of those of that age arriving during
the preceding fiscal year. The number of
immigrants over 14 years old, the conn
tries from which they came and ihe per
centage of illiterates among them were
as follows: Italy, 57,515 with 54.59 psr
cnt; Ireland, 37.49G, with 7 per cent;
Russia, 35.1S8, with 41.14 per cent; Austria-Hungary
and prcyinees, 57,053. with
38.92 par cent; Germany, 24.334, with
2.06 per cent; Sweden, 18,821, with 1.16
per cent, while from Portugal there
came 2067, of which 77.69 per cent were
illiterate. There arrived from Japan
during the year only 1110 immigranfs,
and it is the opinion of the immigration
authorities that the apprehension, here
tofore existing to some extent, of a lAge
tmmigiation from Japan to the United
tates is without any substantial founda
tion. President's Messace.
