WashikSto, Aug-, a The first
Democratlo congress under a Demo
cratic administration since ante bel
lnm days met in extra session at the
national rapttol at high noon to-day.
The occasion was an impressive one,
recalling' as it did a political situation
that has not existed for over a third
of a century. Deep solemnity was
added to the scene bj appreciation

Of the first to walk down the aisle and
take his. seat on the Republican side
' was the dignified Mr. Itoiden of New
York. He nodded good natureifly to
Mr. Bailey who entered a moment
Mr, Funston of Kansas who sur
" vived the Populist fury In the last eon

early and grasped the hand of Mr.

" SIMPSON MIBtJB THE MIJBTACHK.
A man who looked like Hoi Ninith
' Russell walked down the Republican
aide and jostled another mun who
. looked as l'liil Kherldan did before he
' began to accumulate avoirdupois. The
'-t former was Jerry Simpson of Kansas,
who had shaved off his moustache and
the latter John Dalzell of , 1'ennsyl
! ranla, who many of his friends think
will some day be ' tho United
States senator from the Keystone
atate. "Where are the rest of you?"
shouted lirosius of Pennsylvania,
jocosely to Mr. Himpson, and the Kan
aan responded that they would come
, several hundred strong and control
the house of representives two years
banco if Republicans and Democrats
failed to restore silver as a money
, metal i ' ,!
; A conspicuous figure on the Demo
cratio side was Congressman William
M. Springer of Illinois. As he grasped
the hand of Bryan of Nebraska he
assured . the young lieutenant of
Chairman Bland of free coinage fame
that there was nothing In the rumor
that he (Springer) was to lose the
chairmanship of the ways and means
committee and congratulations fol
lowed. -i-:. A robust individual with a broad
breast and a stentorian voice shouted
cross the house to U'Neil of Massa
chusetts the inquiry of whether the
tariff was still the paramount issue,
and bowed profoundly when the Mas
sachusetts man responded that ' Truth
crashed to earth will rise again."
The robust man waa Julius Csssar
Burrows of Michigan, who had thrice
rejected speakerships which were prof
fered to him by Jerry Simpson under
projected alliance of all the silver
men of the house regardless of party.

instantly surrounded by a score of
felicitating , friends, appeared ex

The roll call was a very perfunctory
affair, but the occupantsof the gallery
took as lively an interest in It as
though the result were enshrouded in
clouds of doubt Nearly forty min

call, with the result as follows:
Charles K. Crisp, 214 votes; Thomas B.
Reed, 123 votes, and Jeremiah Simp

"Charles F. Crisp, a representative
from the state of Georgia," said the
clerk, "has received a majority of all
the votes given and he is duly

sentatives of the Fifty-third congress.
Great applause.) The clerk appoints
Mr. Holman of Indiana, Mr. Reed of
Maine and Mr. Kimpson of Kansas to
escort the speaker-elect to the chair."
. There was a burst of applause as
Speaker-elect Crisp appeared a few
minutes later under the escort of the
committee. As he took the chair, hs
said: -'Representatives: Profoundly
grateful for this mark of your confi

HOUSE OROAHIZATIOJf COMPLETED. "
At the conclusion of the prayer the
oath of office was administered by the
speaker to the members, the roll of
states being called for this purpose.
When the stste of Michigan was
reaohed Mr. Burrows of the Republi
can side arose and objected to the
oath being administered to Mr. Rich
ardson, whose name appears. The
member named was ordered to stand
After the administration of the
oath to the members bad been com
pleted, Mr. O'Ferrali of Virginia of
fered a resolution that Guorge F.
Richardson be sworn In snd Mr. Bur
rows of Michigan offered a substitute
declaring that Charles E. Bellnap was
entitled to be sworn in on his prima
facia case. After some wrangling the
two resolutions were postponed until
Mr. Holman presented a resolution
providing for the election of officers
of the house nominated by the Demo
cratic caucus Saturday. A sub
stitute proposed by Mr. Header-
son substituting the Republican
caucus nominees was rejected
and the Democratic resolution
adopted. The oath of office was then
administered by the speaker to the
fallowing: Clerk, James Kerr of Penn

Snow of Illinois; doorkeeper, A. B.

On resolutions offered by Messrs.

BLAND WILL LEAD.

For th Fray.
Washington, Aug. 7. As soon after
congress meets as it becomes practi
cable Mr. Bland, the leader of the sil
ver forces in the house, will introduce
a bill embodying the views ot the sil
ver men. It will provide for the re
peal of the Sherman purchasing act
and substitute therefor the free
coinage of silver at the present ratio
of sixteen to one.
"That," said Mr. Bland, "will be
the ground upon which we will make
the fight, although there has been no
definite plan agreed upon."
He recognized that men could hon
estly differ as to the ratio, but that
was a matter that should be settled in
the party itself. Upon the use of both
gold and silver as money at a parity,
the Democratic party could not differ.
If a compromise measure increasing
the ratio was reached, he said, he saw
no reason why the present dollar
should not be kept in circulation as it
was now. He proposed, however,
with . all his power to resist any in
crease In the ratio.
The champion of silver declared
that there would be a bitter fight
against any attempt to change the
rules so that a cloture provision might

FOR OCEAN TRAVEL,
What kUad aad Haw Men 7 Itrnw Are
ilaedad for a Trip ta Kara.
W hav rsoeived a letter from
Country GirLM says the PMlrdel
phla Times, asking what to wear on
S steamer in going across the ocean,
and also to give any other details
that may bo of serrico to her.
To begin with she should have at
least two traveling dresses on
somewhat heavier than tha other.
One of these she will wear on going
on board the steamer, and after the
first meal it Is advisable to hang up
that one and don another, which she
will only wear during the actual
voyage, as clothing becomes very
wrinkled and unpleasantly suggest
tive of tar, which effectively spoils
it for wear on land.
As a trip on the water, even in
summer, is generally cool, an ulster
Is an actual necessity, and In such a
wrap as this it will not matter if her
gown underneath it is not quite as
modish as the one which she will
wear when going off the steamer.
Besides these dresses, which per
taia more especially to the voyage,
she should have a pretty silk to wear
at dinners, In hotels tn England and
on the continent, and several simple
costumes to alternate with those
which she wears for travel and shop
ping, as one gets very dusty and
feels the need of such a change.
Two hats will be sufficient On
the steamer she wears a yachting cap
and velL There is no place where
good shoes are appreciated more
than on shipboard, for with the rol
ling of the vessel, the climbing in
and out of steamer chairs and the
sundry diversions that are so differ
ent from those on land, the feet be
come, very much en evidence and
pretty shoes and stooicings should be
worn if possible.
A steamer wrapper ta generally In
cluded in a voyager's outfit, and a
rug and chair fitted with cushions
are comforts that cannot be dis
pensed with. The plainer the gown
snd wrap to be worn on deck the
better, as a trim and neat little figure
is far more attractive than one with
countless ribbons flying to the breeze
and ruffles and trimmings that catch
00 every projecting hook.
. Though no complexities are in
volved In the making of scissors,
yet the process is very Interesting.
They are forged from good bar
steel heated to redness, each blade
being cut off with sufficient metal to
form the shank, or that destined to
become the cutting part and bow, or
that wn'eh later on is fashioned Into
tho holdiug portion. For the bow a
small hole is punched, and this is
afterward expanded to the proper
size by hammering it on a conical
anvil, after which both shank and
bow are filed into a more perfect
shape and the hole bored in the mid-
die for the rivet The blades are
next ground and the handles filed
smooth and burnished with oil and
emery, after which the pairs are
fitted together and tested as to their
easy working. They are not finished,
however. They have to undergo
hardening and tempering, and be
again adjusted, after which they are
finally put together again and pol
ished for the third time. In com
paring the edges of knives and scis
sors it will be noticed, of course, that
the latter are not in any way so
sharply ground as the former, and in
cutting scissors crush and bruise
more than knives.
A Herknhlre Chris tenlug-.
The late Dean Burgeon, when a
curate in Berkshire, writes James
I'ayn in the Independent, was re
quested by a village couple to christ
en their b y Venus, or as they called
it;i vanus. "Are you aware," he said,
"that you are asking something ridio
ulous as well as exceedingly wicked?
Do you suppose I am going to give a
Christian child a male child the
name of an infamous and abandoned
woman?" "Please, sir," said the
newly made father, "we wanted him
to be called after his grandfather. "
'And do you mean to say that his
grandfather was named Venus P"
4Yes, sir, there he is sir." A poor
old man, looking exceedingly unlike
Venus, hobbled out ot the crowd.
"Do you dare say that you were
christened Venus?" exclaimed th)
irate clergyman. "Well, no, sir, I
was christened Sylvanus, but they
always calls me Yanus."
