Up Much of the Time Rivers
and Harbors are Safe.
Washington, Dec. 6. On the atroko
of 12 today tho second soBSion of tho
58th congress will bo called to order by
President Pro Tom Fryo In tho senate,
and by Speaker Cannon in tho Iioubo.
When the gavels of tho presiding offi
cers summon tho senators and repre
sentatives to duty nearly overy member
will be in his seat, but only routine
business will be transacted.
Tho president's meseage generally is
received and road the first day, but
the senato is punctilious in certain
matters, and is almost sure to adjourn
as n tribute of respect to tho late Sen
ator Hoar, of Massachusetts, and the
late Senator Quay, of Pennsylvania.
The message, therefore, probably will
not bo read until Tuesday.
After the opening day, when tho
message of the piesident is read, tho
regular business of tho session will be
gin and the legislative wheels will
grind steadily until March, 1905
There is plenty to do. The calendars
of both houses are loaded with bills of
all kinds; hundreds of new bills will
be introduced, and committess aie

months congress probably will do little
more than pass the regular annual
There has been some talk of n possi
ble extra session. The only reason
why such a session should be called if
because there is a demand in certain
quarters for a revision of the tariff, but
many of the incoming congressmen
during the past two weeks have made
it plahi they do not want tariff revision
and further say that they do not want
an extia session.
There is one feature of tho tariff le
vision talk that has some substance
More revenue must be had, or theie
must be it curtailment of expenditure.
With the increa-jing annual appropria
tions, a river and harbor bill, increase
of the navy, the Panama canal and
other featureB of extraordinary dis
burspment, there nil I be need of more
money than present customs and inter
nal revenue provide. An intimation
has been made that curtailment will
satisfy many congressional leaders, but
the majority may determine otherwise,
in which event some revenue legisla
tion may be necessary, and an extra
session for that purpose may be called.
But this is said to be a remote con
ingency, and the probabilities, accord
ing to the leaders who are here, are
that there will be neither tariff legisla
tion nor an extra session.

Washington, Dec. 5. Representa

the rivers and harbors committee with
the expectation of having a hearing, so
that he might pieseut the needs of
anous river and harbor improvements
along the Oregon coast, but was in
formed that the committee is (living no
hearings. An ariaugement has been
made, however, for a hearing before
the subcommittee, at which time Mr.
Hermann will appear with the delega
tion from San Francieco, now en route
to Washington to urge a liberal appro
priation for the improvement of the
tiuBlaw river. Mr. Wendling, a large
shipowner of San Francisco, who is
deeply interested in the Siuslaw trade,
will head the committee. If permitted
to do so, Mr. Hermann will uIbo urge
the subcommittee to make liberal ap
propriationB for other rivers and har

The Czar a Saint.
The Emperor, Nicholas II., has al

ruled for fully eight; yet the concrete
man, his individual character, nud the

ble, are nearly nil as legendary ns
those of Nu inn rouiplllus. Clouds of
Journalistic myths, mainly of German
origin, enwrap his figure, hiding It
from tho vulgar gnzo ns thoroughly as

fanciful portrait, which wo nro risked

less ntt that of our legendary Russian
princes. Beyond tho precincts of tho
palace, his person Is transfigured, his
most trivial deeds arc glorified, and his
least disinterested motives arc twisted
and pulled luto lino with tho funda
mental principles of ethics. Tho ro
Bult Is a cnrlcaturo closely bordering
on tho grotesque. Nlkalal Alexandre

making of this uuhiuo ruler, who
stands upon a much higher lovel than
that of the common run of mortals or
of kings, In virtue, not only of tho
dread responsibilities laid upon him
by tho Most High, but also by reason
of his own pnRslonnto lovo of human
