In fuel more negotiation Is required to get
a look lit the common In session than to

distinction between the eapltol buildings
of the two nations Is this: In Washington

Nor was It easy to llnd Americans who
knew much alxiut the comniotis, for Ills
a singular fact that of tho many thousand
Yankees lu lmdon during "the season"
scarcely onu in a hundred nets a peep at
tho Louse. To the question, however, as
to what struck them most, as dilTeruut
from the congressional proceedings, all
who had looked at parliament answered:
"Tho habit of cross-examining thu cab
inet ollielnls. There would have to Ik)
quite a revolution al Washington licforo
our fellows would stand up and answer
nny question any member of thuopposltiou
party chose to ask."
As a matter of fact, the ministers do not
answer all the questions; they aro nt liber
ty to "reserve. 11 reply when Important In
terest might Ihi Jeopardized by premature
publication." And when they do answer
their words nru often so ordered that an
American has to study them with tho aid
of 11 world's atlas, a political dictionary
and n set of thu "hluo lKHk" to get. at tho
exact meaning. It Is amusing to note,
however, that human nature breaks out lu
much tho same way at Westminster and
Washington. Tho members lu tho minor
ity usually ask In such a way as to Imply
that tho whole concern is going ti tho
"demnltion Ihjwwowh," and tho minister's
answer contains a marked Implication
that tho Ilritish empire is now in tho high
est state of prosperity, and would bo in
much better caso weru It not for tho pesky

less Ikj otiened as many preceding ones
have been, by thu lords commissioners
that is, by the lord chancellor and live other
members of tho privy council. F.xaetly at
2 o'clock on tho day set Lord Chancellor
Halsbury takes his scat "on the woolsack,"
nnd tho lords picscnt also take seats and
remajn silent for about 0110 solemn min
ute. Then tho lord chancellor walks Into
a hldo room and soon reappears at the head
of thu commission all tho six in gorgeous
scarlet and ermine robes. They rangu
themselves on a bench In front of tho
throne, and tho chancellor commands tho
"gentleman usher of the black rod" (Hon.
Sir James It. Druinmnnd, G. C. Ii., at pres
ent) to announce to her majesty's com
mons that tho lords await.
The commons meanwhile are having n
good deal of fun. The speaker simply calls
them to order, and then thoy fall to talk
ing and laughing, inquiring as to each
other's health during tho recess and "clmf
ling" the into coiners. Tho door toward
llio lords opens, the cry of "Black Hod" is
raised and there is bilence. He bows threo
times and delivers his message, then fol
lows the speaker out, and all the members
march after to thu hall of tho lords. Of
Into years there has been much relaxation,
nnd few of the commoners listen to tho
proceedings, Thu royal commission is read
by tho clerks, each of tho six commission
ers rising and bowing as Ids name is men
tioned, Then Lord Halsbury reads thu
queen's speech, but no olio hears it. Tho
mcmls'i's will soon have the papers coil
mining it, and so they, especially tho com
moners, put in tho time socially. They are
then dismissed, and go to their own hall
by "route step and arms at will," snino
times gettim; up a pretty good Imitation
of 11 college "rush."
Such in brief Is tho account given hy all
Americans wlio have witnessed tho cere
mony of late ears. Not only is there a
natural tendency to relax the old strict
ness, but many of tho younger radicals
make it a point to Ihi boisterous The
I lilted States parliament (which was
named congress only hy a sort of accident)
neer was very formal, and hence in Amer
ican histories one liuds none of those llorld
and studied descriptions of It beginnings
so common in P.nglish histories. With
but three exceptions party majorities have
always Is-eu so laryi that speakers were
chosen with 110 sirugglu in the bo'iso,
though them is generally a hut time In the

t, IWtl; then despairing of giving any can
dldate a majority of all tho votes cast, it
agreed to allow a plurality to elect, and
on Feb. 3 Nathaniel P Hanks Israiuo
speaker. It Is an odd coincidence that
after having been a general and goxeruor
of Massachusetts he rcktrncd In cnugicss
for 11 time and al the lata election was de
feated hv Sherman Hoar.
The senate Isdlig lu theory a continuing
(sidy, and having tho lce president for Its
presiding olltcer, meets very much as If
It had adjourned but tho previous day.
Nevertheless the opening of a new con
gress excites general attention, and tho
galleries aro usually crowded, as they are
also at tho opening of the second session.
At this thu speaker usually says a few nice
things iiIhhiL his Joy at meeting tho mem
bers again, and it is presumed that nothing
has lately happened to cause Mr, Heed to
omit that cheerful . o.irtesy this year.
At the opening of the next congress,
however, t hero will ho fun. There always
is some fun over the proceedings of tho
new members, and tho house of the Fifty
second eoniiroHS will certainly he "now."
F.ntire state delegations will consist of now
men, anil there will bo nearly 100 members
who have never served lu any parliament
ary body, not even astute legislature. Of
those new to congress I BO will Ihi Demo
crats and !W Itepuhllcans- -as near as can
now be determined with 11 somewhat un
certain quantity of Fanners' Alliance men.
That nearly all tho prominent Republicans
of preceding congresses wore "left" is of
common knowledge, but It Is a little sur
prising to observe that many prominent
Democrats aro lu tho sauio llx.

In the present house and among tho very
Mr. Chcadle, of Indiana, has been con
spicuous for several reasons, and'stauils as
a remarkable example of how much talent
lies concealed about tho country till somo
exigency calls it out. Ho ran tho usual
course of thu ambitious country hoy, llrst
its teacher in a district school, then law
student, and for some tlmo editor of a ram
shackle country newspaper, the lluauclal
condition of which was matter for laugh
ter and tears. The coming of a circus
show, with its usual SI!) hill for a "mam
moth ad," was a whin titty with him then.
I speak feelingly on this subject, for Mr.
Cheadlo Mild thu concern to me. Hu went
to Frankfort, Clinton county, got a better
show, and at. tho end of n long party dis
sension was nominated as a compromise
candidate, thus becoming t lie member from
the Ninth Indiana district. Hu served his
constituency admirably, and, having been
a private for threo years In the Seventy
first Indiana, hu naturally stood forth as a
"soldier champion," According to north

custom) ho was given hut two terms.
