New Yonic, Dee. 0. A special to
tho Herald, from Washington, 6ays:
"When Hon. Joseph Simon, tho new
senator from Oregon, was formally
sworn InlootV.cc, he found that there
was no seat for him In tho senate.
Tho fenaiorship from Oregon had
been vacant so long thnt
In the arrangement of seats no
arrangement was mado for
Senator Simon on the Republican side
of the chamber. The new senator re
sented the suggestion that ho sit on
tho Democratic sldo. The Republi
can leaders were consulted and It was
suggested that Senator Hutler, aPop
ullst, might be willing to move over
to the Democratlo aide, but ho re
fused to give up his present seat and
Senator Simon Is still seatless."

Paris, Dec.O. Thu history of tho
document which will certUy tno pass
ing or tho oldest colonial power in
tho world and tho advent or tho new
est was epitomized by Judge Day, In
a single sentence:
'A peace treaty tocontuln anything
which the victors put into It."
The Amorlcans had listened Tor
hours with their customary patience
to the technicalities convoked by
tho Spaniards, with their customary
shrewdness and persistency, against
every proposal ror tho dismember
ment ot tholr empire Darkness had
comoon, and the liveried attendants
mobilized by the French authorities
had placed a tloy lamp at tho elbow
of each commissioner. Senator Frye,
whoso unconcealed contempt for
diplomatic quibblings cxoltcs the
ustonlshmcnt or tho punctilious
Caatillans, had stalked home, his pa
The commissioners decline to say
what conclusion was reached, but tho
bargain ror a coaling station in tho
Carolines was not comontcd, and, ac
funding to present prospects, It Is
llkolv to rail. Tho temper or tho
Americans In this mutter Is:
"Wc make you a good offer ror an
Island. You may tuko It or leave It."
Tho Spaniards scorn disposed to
leave It. Tho Americans do not re
gard it us a prlzo which they can de
mand as one or the natural fruits or
the war, whllo tho whole policy or
the Spaniards Is to conllno tho ro
gotlutlons as narrowly as poislblo to
tho letter or tho protocol signed In
Washington, and to cxcludo nil
extraneous matlors, Tho result or
this policy may bo tho leaving or
many details Involved In tho change
orsovcroignty over tho various pos
sessions to settlement by the regular
diplomatic prooesscs when normal
relations between tho two govern
ments have been resumed.
The Spanish commlsshners insisted
at tho provlous meeting that the set
tlement of tho status of tho Spanish,
who remain In tho colonics wns a
problem so closo'y alcln to cession
that It could not bo logically sep
arated rrom tho matter, but should be
considered next to tho question or ces
sion, and before such matters as coal
lug stations and religious toleration.
They appeared to tho Amorlcans,
haying gained all tho great points to
begenorouson tho minor ones. Ac
cordingly, tho American commission
ers, as foroshadowod by tho corres
pondent of tho Assoclotcd Press, woro
conciliatory today on tho order of
procedure as to tho status of tho
Spaniards remaining In tho lost colo
ThcSpinlsh commissioners uoutl duo
lighting with tooth nnd nail to pro
euro ovory posslblo pecuniary and
other concos9lon, Tho Americans had
already promised to guarantee the
return of Spanish prlsqncrs in tho
hands of tho Filllplnos. Scnor Mon
te ro Rio? proposed that tho United
States should pay the expenses of
shipping them to Spain, arguing with
his customary ingenuity that this
was tho duty or tho Amorlcans; as a
matter or course Tho Americans
thought tho request unreasonable,
and a good deal or tlmo was consumed
In discussing tho qucstbn.
Tho question or tho status of tho
Spaniards In tho West Indies und tho
Philippines who wish to remain there
was nearly sottlcd, as well as certain
commercial questions involving tho
rights or shipping under tho Spanish
(lug, which will bo glvon advantages.
Secretary 0cda, or tho Spanish
commission, when questioned after
tho meeting as to tho progress made,
"I am almost mad, I cannot talk.
Wo aro making progress."
Thn Spanish commissioners have re
ceived authority to bind tholr govern
ment on certain matters, but thcro
are yet importunt questions on which
their Instructions arc unsatisfactory,
and It Is not unlikely that many of
tho details Involved In tho chango or
sovereignty In tho Spanish colonies
will bo left for settlement in tho regu
lar diplomatic process when relations
between tho two governments aro ro
sumed. When tho commissioner emerged
from tl'.O foreign ofllco this evening
artcr along session, Judgo Day an
nounced that all requests had been
settled and tho treaty will be signed
In three or rour days.
