Washington, Dec. 2.—The meeting of the sixtieth congress today reassembled a social function rather than the gathering for transaction of important business of the country. There was an unusually big crowd of spec- Itators in both house galleries. In each house the session was short and con- lined to an adoption ot a formal resolution notifying President Roosevelt that congress is assembled and swearing in new senators and representatives and other perfunctory acta. Both houses adjourned in respect to members who have died since the close of jlhe last congress. Owen and Gore of Oklahoma, not having been elected to the senate by i their legislature were not received by the senate and their credentials will not be accepted until after their formal election on the tenth insL Prehlbltioa n Issaew Prohibition for the District of Columbia wilt be demanded of congress at the coming session.

The builders are now advertising for men to be added to the working force, for the freight cars are all to be turned out as fast as possl ble. The order was first placed early in thq.Sf^aaon. A month .fiac. pancelled, the American Car ft 1 . was starting to woric on the ii£ K. ft T. cars. A disagreement as to the meaning of a term in the contract caused the cancel. ftogislature. The temperance forces have MARRIED A YEAR active for months planning the campaign they will open with the convening of congress today. The temperance movement is under the direction of the Anti-Saloon league, the national headquarters of which are here. Working with it are the W. C. T. U.. the religious bodies and other organizations that for years have been opposing the saloons with only indifferent success. Since the elections of ^st year the Anti-Saloon league has l ^n in commnnication with every member of the bouse and every sen ator. It also has brought potent po- lltii^t Influence to bear In support of Its efforts to pledge members of con gress to anti-saloon legislation. It is probab/e that before congress has I been in session a week, at least twen ty temperance measures will have been introduced. Fu0emt>- Laughlin and Miss Marie v.

The -jaiTiage of the young people, kept a secret for nearly a year and a half, certainly proves that snch a thing as secret wedding is not a myth as nauy..|}elleve. A year ago last August Mr. Laugh went to Colorado to spend his snmmer vacation. Miss MWlory, who was then a stenographer in a local ofllce, took her vacation at the name t<me,^ goIn« to Colorado also. The young people met there and were marriod.

Dr. R. A. Torrey closed last night one of the most remarkable evangelistic campaigns ever seen In Chicago. The meetings which were held for the most part in a huge steam-heated tent erected at North Clark and Chestnut streets, have attracted an average attendance of 8.000 for Sundays and 3.00 on other nights . Dr. Torrey has delivered 135 sermons to more than 275.000 listeners. About 3.200 itersons have professed conversion. Less than 1,000 of these were women. The campaign was planned and financed by the Laymen's Evangellstlc- al Association, 2r>0 members of which contributed 130.000. Of this amount, 110,000 was expended for tho tent and $11,000 for advertising. The association has made i<1ans for another campaign of a similar nature, for next year.' , Dr. Torrey left last night for his home in Philadelphia. After a week's rest there he wilt go to Virginia, where .a series of meetings is to be held, and from there will leave for 1 Los Angeles, starting a campaign in the California city early In January. Guthrie. Okla., Dec 2.—A proposed amendment to the Taylor elecUon bill to be introduced by Senator Roddle Will have the effect. If passed by the legislature, of disfranchising many negroes In the state and a few of the more Ignorant among the white people. It provides for a poll tax certiGcate which must be presented In towns of 1,000 population or over before a citl- |sen is allowed to vote. This will be supplemented by a provision requiring registration In rural as well as tional qualification making ability to read a certain portion of the constltu- munlclpal communities and an education necessary to the exercise of the elective franchise. The Taylor bill contains a number novel provisions. Including one for expert election counters to begin counting the vote at one o'clock on election day, so that returns may be had early on election night.

In any form, by. city hall em­ ployes Is forbidden by President W. J. Springhorn, of the Iward of public service, in charge of the hall. He ad- raits the order was inspired by no less an authority than Mayor Tom L. John son. The mayor, who almost con- jstantly draws on a briar pipe while In his oHicc, says he shall obey his own order. Til be a victim of the reform we have decided on," said Mayor Johnson.

Cbckerill works, 1 mile east of LaHarpe, which for the l.«t two weeks or more were on dead fire, on account of being out of ore. were charged again and the entire works :3 now in full operation. The starting up of these two furnaces has significance in view of the fact that It was rumored about at the time the Cockerill furnaces went on dead fire that the shut down was not caused by a shortage of ore, but rath-* er on account of the price of zinc. Since Mr. Cockerill has again started the furnaces at the LaHarpe east works the smelter men believe that he will also start the Cherokee furnaces at Gas City as soon as the big 12 inch pipe line from the Elsmore gas field has been completed. Thr work on the big pipe line Is being rapidly pushed to completion and the present Indications are that It will be completed in two weeks. This njomlog the gang of 200 Graeks who are doing the pipe line work, moved their camp from Coal Creek onto the Runran farm on E'm creek. Just south of Gas City, Thore remains but seven miles of Ipe to be laid. Xew Raling Allows PaWlshers to Dis- tribnte 10 Per Cent TO AMEND THE LAW Washington, Dec. 2.—The trial of the Bradley case was resumed this morning. Attorney Hoover beginning the argument for the defense. Mr. Hoover argued it was Senator Brown who importuned for the alleged relations between Brown and Mrs. Brad- Icy; that her story of the tragedy was corroborated by the evidence and these give ample evidence that she was Insane a!t the time of the shooting. An hour later Judge Powers, leading cotinsel for the defense, began his presenting of the case. Powers argued that Brown dominated Mrs. Brown when she sought to leave him; he pleaded and begged her to remain and he true to him. When in a bnrst of eloquence he nrged that those "without sin among you cast the first stone." District Attorney Baker objected on the grounds that it was an improper argument bat ;the oomrt wonld not snstain the objection.

Dec. 2.—^The Topeka Min isterisl Union has started a movement for the amendment of the prohibitory law. so that the sale of intoxicating liquors by druggists shall be prohibited except upon prescription of a practicing physician. The plan Is already quite popular among the niore radical prohibitionists here and they are taking steps to spread the movement to other cities with a view to making the proposed amendment t9 the prohibitory law an Issue In the approaching campaign for the election of members of the legislature. Recent developmenta^ere have convinced the prohibitionists that it is aUnost impossible to stop the Illegal sale of liquor by druggists holding permiU under present conditions.
