Simon of Oregon Will Not Ho Stationed on Democratic Side. -Washington, Dec. , 7.—When Joseph Simon, the new senator from Oregon, was formally sworn Into office he found that there was no seat for him In the senate. As he had qualified, signed the roll and received congratulations he was turned over to the sergeant-at- arms, who was expected to provide him with a desk and a seat. The senatorshlp in Oregon had been vacant so long that in the arrangements of seats no provision was made for Senator Simon on .the Republican side of'the chamber. The new senator resented the suggestion that he sit on the Democratic side. The Republican leaders consulted and It was suggested that Senator Butler, the Populist from North Carolina, might be willing to move over to the Democratic side. The North Carolina man had tried that side early In the day and was stung by a chance remark that In view of the race troubles in his state he would hereafter Identify himself with the Democratic party, so he refused to give up his present seat and Senator Simon Is stilt seatless. 1'roceedliiff* In CongreRB. Washington, Dec. 7.—-The session of the senate was devoted mainly to routine matters, the Introduction of bills and presentation of reports.

Judge Smith'* Derinlon In aPamoun Mltli IgHti Cone. . Pontiac, Mich./ Deo. 7.-—Judge Smith has rendered his decision in the case of Stephen A. Baldwin vs.-Fred A. Baker In favor of the former.

Baldwin filed a bill In chancery asking that the mortgage be discharged Inasmuch as he had tendered the payment to Baker. Mr. Baker filed B lengthy answer In reply covering al the points of the coinage laws. In It he quoted the coinage law passed by congress Fob. 12, 1S73, providing that the standard gold dollar "should be the unit of value." On this basis he argued he was not being paid the full value of the mortgage, as a silver dollar's market value was but 68% cents. Judge Smith's decision was that the tender of the silver in payment for the mortgage waa good, and accordingly ordered the mortgage discharged as palii; The case .will he appealed to the supreme court of Michigan and from there it is expected that It will go to the United States supreme court.

London, Dec. 7.—The afternoon newspapers here express satisfaction at president McKlnley's message to congress with the exception of the allusion to the Nicaragua canal, which to the minds of the editors, does not show sufficient, appreciation of British treaty rights. The Pall Mall Gazette says: "In language of studied moderation, but which leaves no room to doubt Its meaning, the president foreshadows the fixed determination of the government to stand by the policy of the 'open door' In the east. That declaration brings the United States In a line with us. it ever the time comes to speak with enemies in the 'open door' way." Referring to the Nicaragua canal, The Pall Mall Gazette remarks: "While fully admitting the validity of the president's claims for the complete protection of the commerce of the United States, we may be permitted to point out that British Interests are no less entitled to consideration, and that the government at Washington Is already bound by definite obligations. We are convinced, however, that when it comes to business, there will be no. disposition In the United States to question the friendly equality of the two countries in this matter." The St. James Gazette says: "The message will be read with pleasure. The president faces new Issues in a broadminded way and suggests the solution of their problems on large and generous lines." The St. James Gazette reads the Nicaragua and friendly relations with Great Britain sentences of the message together and draws the Inference therefrom that President McKinley recognizes the binding character of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty, "It would be strange," the article continues, "If the opportunities Just now offered by the Canadian negotiations do not result In the near future In a comprehensive understanding between the two great branches of the English-speaking race, not merely on the broad, general lines of common commercial Interests, but on such closely-related details us the creation and guarantee of the Inter- oceanic waterway."
