THE EXTRA SESSION
UNDER THE CALL IT CAN DO ANY
BUSINESS IT DE8IRES.
PROBALY PASS CENSUS BILL
This Matter, the Statehood Bill and
Other Measures Are Likely to
Washington, D. C. When congress
meets on the 15th Inst., upon the call
of the president to consider a revi
sion of the tariff, there will be no
constitutional restrictions upon the
nature of the business that may he
transacted. It is generally conceded
that at least two months will be re
quired for the representatives to
conclude consideration of all' the
schedules involved in this legislation.
The house itself will not receive, the
bill for some weeks, as the commit
tee on way and means will require
considerable time to report the meas
ure. During this long period the
senate will have nothing to do in
respect to the tariff, and even after
the bill leaves the house it will be
in the hands of the committee on
finance for some time before the
senate actually gets possession of it,
and the debate begins. Then will be
gin a long wait by the house of rep
resentatives until the state amend
ments can be known and conferees
appointed to bring about an agree
ment upon them.
This procedure will result in each
house having to remain in session
with nothing to do in relation to the
tariff covering a period of a couple
of months. Three days is the extent
of a recess that may be taken by
In view of the extended period of
inactivity that would face each house
should nothing be considered except
the tariff, many senators are consid
ering the advisability of entering up
on other legislation which they be
lieve ought to be passed in time to
send it over to the house when that
body has disposed of its bill and will
only have to wait for senate action on
the tariff. The advocates of poctal
savings banks have talked of the pos
sibility of such a policy being adopted
ever since they becam- aware of
their inability to secure legislation in
the last session of congress.
There are many earnest advocates
of a change of date in the inaugura
tion from March 4 until a later day,
when favorable weather is likely to
prevail. Senator Depew took the
first legislative step in favor of such
a change when he introduced a reso
lution proposing an amendment to
the constitution to change the date
of the Inauguration from "March 4 to
the last Wednesday in April.
Advocates of statehooa for New
Mexico and Arizona were greatly dis
appointed that no progress could be
made toward the enactment of an
enabling act during the last session
and they are restless over any propo
sition to delay action until the regu
lar session of congress because they
fear that the mass of legislation that
will then come up will crowd their
claims to the bacitsround.
The president's veto of the census
bill make mandatory some action to
provide for the enumeration of the
thirteenth census, and while legisla
tion might be delayed until early
next winter, some of those who are
interested in tbe passage believe that
the extra session would give an ad
mirable opportunity to dispose of it.

Mr. Taft became President Taft
Thursday afternoon at 12:55, the
inaugural ceremony being held in the
senate chamber, instead of on the
east portico of the capitol building, on
account of a terrific snow and sleet
storm which raged here for nearly 24
hours. And the day before the

But for all that the ceremony was
carried out in the crowded senate

The ceremony of the Inauguration
was accomplished with all due formal
ity and finality, but under most un
usual conditions owing to the terrific
blizzard which swept over the na
tional capital, paralyzing street traf
fic, destroying communication with the
outside world, and bringing dismay to
the thousands of assembled visitors'
who had gathered In expectation of the
usual spectacular demonstration. Not
withstanding the adverse conditions,
efforts were made to carry out all of
the main features of the inauguration.
The main change was in modifying the
original program so that the inaugural
address, usually delivered from the east
portico of the capitol, was pronounced
by Mr. Taft in the senate chamber.
"Blizzard to the End."
When Mr. Taft and President Roose

Taft's greeting to the man he was so
soon to succeed, was:

"Mr. President-elect," quickly re

would be a blizzard clear up to the

Notwithstanding the fury of the
storm outside, there was happiness

the moment that Mr. Taft and Presi
dent Roosevelt started for the capitol.
Vice-President Fairbanks and the en

Good Newspaper's Influence.
The influence of the right kind of a

and abuses, some small, some great
grow up on every hand. The rights of
individuals and the rights of the pub

through ignorance, and assailed by
graft and greed. The newspaper with
a helpful policy must ever be vigilant

these attacks. From the Philadelphia

last night at the White House as the

movement and constant color. The

every cornice. The inaugural commit

all previous efforts at decoratice ef

the capitol up Pennsylvania avenue,
past the great treasury building and
White House there were nearly 4,000
regular troops and twice as many
members of the National Guard of the
different states and independent mili

trades, the professions and all kinds
of business activities were represent

to Washington to do honor to the
country's new civil chief.
Sherman Sworn In First.
Early in the day the president-elect
met the out-going president in the
White House. About an hour before
noon the congressional committee of
arrangements, consisting of Senators
Knox. Lodge and Bacon, and Repre

arrived at the executive mansion and
informed the president and the president-elect
that congress was in "readi

Escorted by a guard of honor of
veterans, Messrs. Roosevelt and Taft
and the several committees then
drove to the capitol, where they were
met by Vice-President Fairbanks and
Mr. Sherman. All went to the senate
chamber, where, after prayer by Ed
ward Everett Hale, chaplain of the
senate, Mr. Sherman took the oath of
office as vice-president and delivered
his inaugural address. He then ad
ministered the oath to the newly
elected United States senators.
Present on the floor of the senate
chamber were many former senators
of the United States, who have the
privilege of the senate at all- times
owing to the fact of once having held
I membership in the body.
Taft Is Made President.
The white-haired chief justice of
