Secretary Ulnlijn'" Add rein The delegates being assembled Secretary Blalne, who bad been busy doing the courtesies of the occasion, arose and culled the congress to order and delivered the following address: QKNTI.KMF.S of THE INTKUNATIONAT, CON- FKBKNCE:—Speaking for the government of the United States. I bid you welcome tn this capital. Speaking for tlio people of the United States, I hid you welcome to every wi-tlmi and to every state in the Union. You come In response to an invitation oxtwded by the president on the special authorization of congress. •Your presence hero Is no ordinary event. It signifies much to tho people of all-America to-day. It may s unify far more In the days to come. No conference of nations has over assembled .tn consider tho welfare of territorial possessions so vast and to contemplate the possibilities of a future so great and BO Inspiring. Those now sitting within these walls are empowered to speak for nations whose borders are both tho great oceans, whoso northern limits aro touchedby the arctic waters for 1,000 miles beyond the straits of Behrlng, whoso southern extension furnishes human habitations farther below tho equator than elsewhere possible on tlin globe. The aggregate territorial extent, of the nations hero represented falls but little short of I-,OCK),OX) of Hciuiirii miles- more than three (linen the area of all Europe, and but little less than one-fourth part of the globe; while In respect to the power of proluclngthe articles which are css-ntlalto human life and those which minister to life's luxury, they constitute even a larger proportion of the entire world. Those great possessions to-day have an aggregate population approaching lSU,oni),<lUO. but If peopled as densely as the average of Europe the total number would exceed l,a>0,OJO,UOO. What tlie Conference Cun Do. While considerations of this character must Insfilre Americans, both South und North, with the liveliest anticipations of future grandeur and power, they must also impress them with a sense of the gravest responsibility louchins; the character and development of. their respective nationalities. The delegates whom I am now addressing can—-do—much—to—establish- permanent relations of confidence, respect and friendship between the nations which they represent. They can show to tho world an honorable and peaceful conference of seventeen independent American powers. In which all shall meet together on terms of absolute equality, a conference In which there can bo no attempt to cnerco a single delegate against his own conception of the interests of his nation; a conference which will permit no secret understanding on any subject, but will frankly publish to the world all its conclusions; a conference which will tolerate no splr- It of conquest, but will aim to cultivate an American sympathy as broad as both continents; a conference which will form no selflsh' alliance against the older nations from which wo a,-e proud to claim inheritance; a conference. In fine, which will seek nothing, propose nothing, endure nothing that is not In tho general sensu of all tho delegates timely and wise and peaceful. A I'loii for Closer Relation*. And yet wo cannot be expected to forget thjit our common fate has made us inhabitants of the two continents which, at the close of four centuries, are still regarded beyond the sea as the New'World. Like HltuatloiH beget like sympathies, and Impose like duties. Wo meet in tho firm belief that tho nations of America ought to be, and can be, more helpful, each to tho other, limn they now are, iind that each will find advantage and profit from an enlarged Intercourse with the others. Wo believe that we should bo drawn together moro closely by the highways ot tho son. and that atnodlfttantday the, railway systems of tho north aiid south will meet upon thu isthmus and connect by laud routes the political and i ouimerclal capitals-of all America.

Ho said tho deliberations of tho congress would doubtless bo Ecrutiniz.'d ai closely ns thoso of any body cf men that over assembled, and tho eyes of tho world woro upon it. Ho dwelt at some length on the far-reaching possibilities of tho doings of tho congress. In referring to the cxcurRion to which the delegates bail been invited, Mr. Henderson said it was intended not only to give them an opportunity to soe tlin places of 1 terost in the various parts of tho country to bo visited, but to study tho commercial und industrial features of the United Stales, and toi give the citizens tho privilege and pleasure of funking their acquaintance. Mr. Blaino then came in and escorted tho members to the White House. The president gave a special reception to tho delegates at MONTANAIN DOUBT, Governor, Congressman and Legislature Very Close.

The Groat Kolly Makm n^llrllltunt Ex- hibition—Thn 1'oiinaut llaee. — CLEVELAND, O., Oct. 3.—The most disgraceful tceiie that was ever witnessed on tho local ball grounds happeded yesterday afternoon when Kelly, captain of the Bos- tons, was ejected from the premises for threatening the umpire. Kelly was under tho influence of liquor and did not play. In the sixth inning Richardson was thrown out at the plate by Itadford, nnd when throe hands were retired Kelly approached Umpire McQuald and began abusing him with tho moat indecent and vulgar language. Mo- Quaid ordered him back to tho bench, and night was ns forty-eight hours before. The vote will bo v«ry done, and it is boliovcd it will require tho official count to eotllu the question.

The Republican majority in tho stnlo will not exceed 7,000 and the sprinkling of Demo-* crals in the first legislature will be far greater than has over before been tho caso with representatives from tho northern section.

LIVINGSTON, Mont, Oct. !!.—The present indications point to tho election, of Carter (Rep.), for ' congress by a majority of less than 500. Power and Toolo aro running very close, with chances slightly in favor of Power. It is impossible to make reliable estimates as to which party has carried the legislative ticket, as it is very closo, and tho result will not bo known for some hours. of tlie questions to bo settled at this session is the proposed change of tho name of the church. Another important clmn.'e is that of proportionate representation.
