which always attaches to the annual as-
oemblagea ot-vthe national lawmakers.
There was on lidded interest in the event
this year, for the many far-reaching questions awaiting consideration gave unusual
importance to the return of congress.
Aside from this, the Roberts case intvo-
duced a phase which promised somethiug
outside of the ordinary developments oi
an opening day.
Karly in the day the throngs began
converging at the capitol. The day waa
bright and propitious, and the thoroughfares leading to the building presented a
gay and animated appearance, while within the building all was bustle and excitement Long before the hour for calling
the house to order the outer doors were
open to all, and through these flowed continuous streams of humanity until the
great corridors, galleries and rotundas
were fairly packed.
As early as 10:30 o'clock the conspicuous figures of congress began to arrive,
and this served to give the waiting
throngs a temporary diversion.
General Henderson went directly to
the speaker's private ouice, where he
shared his time with the house leaders
and with those pleading for   admission
Representative Richardson, of Tennessee, made his way through the crowd to
the members' private lobby. Here he
chanced to meet Mr. Richardson, and the
two held a short conference aa to whether
Mr. Roberta would seek to address the
A dum of comment followed the gentleman from Utah wherever he went, but
there was no disrespectful demonstration.

The eyes of the nation are focused on
David R. Henderson, whom the republicans have selected to be the next speaker
of the house of representatives. He was
bora in Old Deer, Scotland, March 14,
1840. His parents come to the United
Statea when he was 6 years of age, settling finally in Iowa in 1849. He obtained
his earlier education in the public schools
of that state, and subsequently took a
course in the Upper Iowa university.
When the civil war broke out he gave up
the study of law and shouldered a musket
and went to the front aa a private. He
was with ti>e regiment in numerous engagements and wss wounded slightly several times. In a subsequent engagement
he lost one of his legs. After the wounds
were healed he re-enlisted as a colonel of
the Forty-sixth Iowa volunteer infantry,
and served at the head of his regiment
until the close of the war. He was admitted to the bar in 1865, and from that
time until 1809 he served as collector of
internal revenue for tbe Third district of
Iowa. For two yeans he was assistant
United States district attorney for the
northern division of the district of
Iowa. In 1883 he was elected to the house
of representatives, in which capacity he
haa since served continuously.

Washington, Dec 4.—In the shadow of
the recent .death, the senate convened at
noon today in its session ol the fifty-sixth
congress. The death of Vice President
llobart cast a poll over the preliminary
proceeding in the senate. As usual on
the opening days of congress the senate
chamber was a veritable conservatory.
Pending the actual convention of the
senate die chamber presented a most animated and picturesque scene. The galleries were filled with a brilliant and distinguished audience. Promptly at noon
Mr. Frye, of Maine, president pro tern.,
called the senate to order. The blind
chaplain, Mr. Milburn, pronounced the invocation, making a beautiful and touching reference to the death of Mr. llobart.
Mr. Penrose, of Pennsylvania, presented
the credentials of Mr. Quay, which were
presented to the committee on privileges
and elections.

Chicago, Dec. 4.—The News says that
ex-Champion Robert Fltzsimmons and his
old time manager, Martin Julian, have
parted company. This was the result of
a bitter quarrel in the pugilists rooms
in the Sherman house, in which fists
were swung and a revolver displayed.
Fltzsimmons left for New York last night,
vowing he was done with Julian for good.
Tlie disagreement comes after a scries of
misunderstandings. According to the stories of both men it grew out of Fitzsim-
mons' inability to obtain a box at the
Lyric theater during a crowded period.
Julian is interested in the Lyric. The
pugilist, it is said, made certain remarks
of an uncomplimentary nature concerning
the Lyric and Julian took him to task for
After a little talk Julian slapped the big
fellow in the face and the fighter swung

gun.  ^^^^

1.on Jon, Dec. 4.—The meager dispatch giving a list of the British casualties at Modder river and announcing the
bare fact that Lord Methuen is still there
awaiting reinforcements, is only supplemented by a brief special message from
Cape Town tonight slating that the Boers
destroyed the bridge over the Mo.Ulcr river before the battle, and ure now concentrating nt Bpyfontein, where the final battle before Kimberly is relieved is expected
to takl place.
The censor has apparently stopped ull
press messages from the front relating to
the buttle, whicli is not regarded as a
favorable indication. As lo the material results oi General Methuen's victories it is
not clear whether (ieneral Methuen's
i force actually crossed the Modder river
or is still awaiting the rebuilding of the]
bridge before the artillery and cavalry
can cross.
In any case the railroad must be curried over the bridge before the indispensable big natal guns can pass, because
Lord Methuen's lust message showed that
they were worked on trucks aloug the
railroad. It is a significant fact that Lord
Methuen's cable makes no mention of the
liner loss, which therefore is assumed to
he small.

The struggle lieing mnde by thjb
coal barons of British Columbia,
headed bv the Dum-muirs, to keep the
coal mines of our province open to the
employment of Chinese which virtually
means the exclusion of most white
miners, is an object lesson tor the
thinking people of our country to
stndy over. It is only a sample of
what some of our own people will
stoop to to increase their ftlicady many
millions. Unless the influx of Chinese is stopped their will be trouble in
this province and a few men through
their greed will he responsible for any
outbreak that may occur.

Whv British Columbia papers,
poning oa mining paper*, should be
continually abusing the Coeur d' Alene
miners and makiag false and malicious
Statements regarding them is a mystery
to most people in this section of oar
country. Are they so utterly ignorant
of the fact tbat Britiah Columbia
numbers among her very best citizens,
hundreds of these self same Coeur d'
Aleners, that tbere is no mining camp
or town in the Kootenays that has
not some of them among its most,
enterprising citizens'! Thai there has
been an outrage, in the name of law,
committed in Idaho is proven by the
fact that hundreds of men were confined in prison for months and then
turned loose without even being given
a trial. This fact would appear to
most to be a conclucivo proof of their
innocence. The good and bad element
in the Coeur d' Alene district will be
found to average about the same as
tbat of the Nelson or any other district of British Columbia. Why then
continually abuse these people, have
they not suffered enough!
