WASHINGTON , D. C. , Dec. 4. The
opening work of the session In the
house promises to bo crowded with
stfrlng events. There is always a
good deal of glamour In connection
with the assembling of a now con
gress , which Is a social as well as
n political event. The galleries arc
always crowded and there is intense
interest In the election of speaker ,
the swearing In of members at the
bar of the house , the rending of the
president's message , the biennial scat
drawing , the Introduction of bills and
rosolutlonu into the legislative hopper
nnd the general clearing of decks for
action later on.
But , as the commi'ttccs are not ap
pointed until just before the holiday
recess , no actual business Is transacted
usually until after recefaB. This year
it will bo different. At the very
threshold of the scsnlon will come the
contest over the admission of Repre
sentative-elect Roberts of Utah , and
later In the week the house will plunge
Into an Important , nnd possibly a pro
tracted , debate upon the financial bll
which was prepared by the ropubllcai
leaders last spring nt Atlantic City.
The Roberts cano has attracted Iho
attention of the whole country. The
republican leaders Imvc adopted a plan
of procedure which Is designed to pre
vent Mr. Roberts from taking the oath
of ofilco until the facts In regard to
his alleged polygamous practices have
been Investigated by a special com
Mr. Taylor of Ohio will make the
( Abjection to the admission of Mr
Roberts nnd will offer a resolution of
his case to the committee. There Is
considerable scattered opposition to
this method of procedure on the
ground that refusal of the house to
permit a repreesntatlve-elect bearing
proper credentials to bo sworn in upon
unprovcn charges would create a bad
precedent and might result In chaos nt
some future time when political feel
ing ran high. But there are several
precedents for this course In the case
of members charged with disloyalty
after the war. and these will be used
In support of the procedure. Every
member of the house has be-on bom
barded with petitions In the Roberts
case and there undoubtedly will be n
largo malority vote without regard
to party lines In support of the plan
outlined by republican leaders. Ow
ing to the tlmo which will bo con
sumed In the disposition of the Rob
erts case tomorrow , the drawing of
seats , which usually requires several
hours , probably will bo postponed un
The announcement of Vice Presi
dent's Hobart's death will bo made
probably Immediately afer , the Rob
erts case is disposed of and the house
will adjourn out of respect to his mem
ory. The drawing of seats and the
reading of the president's message will
occupv Tucsdov. Tuesday night the
republicans will caucus on the financial
cialbill. . It Is the intention of the
republican leaders to make this n cau
cus measure and proceed and pass It
before the holiday recess.
The caucus will decide , if the pres
ent Intention Is followed , not to wait
for the appointment of the committee
on banking nnd currency , but to bring
the bill Into the house forthwith , prob
ably under n special order from the
committee on rules. The debate may
begin on Wednesday.
The length of tlmo to bo given to

four days may suffice.

NEW YORK , Dec. 4. A movement
[ or the raising of funds lor a memor
ial orphan asylum for Cuban children
which shall bear the name of Mrs.
Thurslon , the first wife of Senator
Tohn M. Thurston , and who died dur
ing a visit she made to Cuba , was
started tonight In the Madison avenue
Presbyterian church undr the auspi
ces of the Thurstcn Memorial associa
tion. The name of the proposed homo
Is to be "The Thurgton Home of Or
phans and Homeless Children in Cuba , "
and General Vandervoort of Nebraska ,
ono ot the managers of the Cuban
Mall Steamship company , has offered
n tract of ground for the Institution.
General Vnndervoort and Mrs. G. E
Andiows of Echo Lake , N. J. , wore thr
speakers at the meeting tonight. General -
oral Vnndervoort told of the large num
ber of orphans In Cuba and of the need
of some Institution to care for them.
The homo Is to be an Industrial school ,
ho said , us well as a mission. It is
especially fitting , ho thought , that this
work ho started as a memorial to Mrs.
Thurston , whoso death , her friends be
lieved , was caused by a Lroken heart
the result of her visit to Cuba and
seeing with her own eyes the condi
tions there. >
The collection tonight was devoted
to the fund and contribution slips
were handed around on which a largo
number of members of the church
pledged themselves to large amounts.

I'm nl < for I Tniluy ,
FRANKFORT , Ky. , Dec. 4. At noon
today the state board of election com
missioners of Kentucky will mcet to
canvass the returns from the last state
election and to decide whether Ooebel
or Taylor Is entitled to the certificate )
o * election. There Is not much proba
bility that the matter will bo settled
today and It may bo Wednesday or
later before a certificate Is Issued. Both
bides express confidence , but no ono
can predict with accuracy the decision
which will bo arrived at by the board.
The certified returns from the country
boards , now on flic , give Taylor a plur
ality of 2,435 , but the democrats de
clare that enough of these votes will
bo thrown out and that Goebel will bo
awarded the certificate.
The Kentucky election law Is capa
ble of divers constructions and the
definite conclusion of the board will
rest very largely upon how Its mem
bers decide to construe certain portions
tions of the statute. There IH a loop
hole In the very sections upon which
the republicans rely which may work
npalnst them. It Is this : "The said
otnto board shall be a board for exam
ining and canvassing the returns. '
How the board will construe the word
"examining" IB a matter of doubt. The
same words exactly arc used In defin
ing the the powers of the various
county boards , and under this wording
they have claimed and used the power
of rejecting votes which they believed

WASHINGTON , Dec. 2. At a con
ference of about twtnty-flvo promi
nent house republicans held at the
capltol tonight It was decided that the
eligibility of Representative Robert1 ?
of Utah to occupy a seat In the house
tbould be Investigated and determined
and that pending the decision ho
should not be permitted to talto the
oath of office.
This decision was arrived at by
those present without a dissenting
voice. Representative Tayler of Ohio ,
who will have charge of the matter In
the house , explained after the confer
ence had adjourned that this proceed
ing does not Involve a pro-judgment
of the case , but irrespective of party ,
will afford the members an oppor
tunity to vote after a thorough Inves
tigation and complete presentation
of the case for consideration.
Mr. Tayler had made a study of the
allegations and precedents and pre
sented them at length to his col
leagues. He offongd a plan of proced
ure which was ngieed to after a gen
eral exchange of views. The proced
ure Is to be as follows ;
When Mr. Roberts appears at the
bar of the house to take the oath ob-
jfctkm Is to be made upon the ground
that he Is Ineligible. He will then
step aside and after the other mem
bers are sworn in the member mak
ing the objection who probably will
be Mr. Tayler will recite the allega
tions and offer a resolution for their
investigation by a special committee.
This will give the house an oppor
tunity to vote in the first instance on
the question of postponing the ad
ministration of the oath until after
the allegations have been Investigated.
The resolutions have not been for-
multed yet , but they will Include the
Investigation of the charge that Mr.
Roberts' alleged conviction of viola
tion of the Edmunds act In 1S89 ren
ders him Ineligible by the terms of
that act , whether the fact that he Is
an avowed polygamlst renders him In
eligible and whether tne state of Utah
In electing him has not violated the
compact by which it obtained state
