Tho House assembled at- noon and then recessed until the hour for the Hours before the time sot for the President's Ihe corridorH of ths Capitol were beaieged by appli- cants for admispion to the House gal- leries. Admittance was "by ticket, how over, and each Senator aiid Itepreiien- tative received one. President Wilson arrived at the Capitol just before 1 o'clock. 'He went at once to Speaker Clark's room, where he was met by a coinmittee of the House and 'Senate and escorted nto the House chamber to the ros- trum. The joint session and the reading of the message did not beg-in protmptly it 1 o'clock, as had been provided, because uf the failure of the Senate to recess in time to cross to the House chamlbor. It was within one minute of 1 before tho Senators were filing over to the other side of -the Capitol. .Mean- while the President -waited in Speaker. Clark's office, chatting -with the re- ception committee and a few Con- gressmen. Galleries, packed with a company of ofik-ials and their families, greeted the President, however, when he joint session finally settled down to "business. All present, roso to their 'set and a deafening roar of applause swftpt the chamber as Mr. took his -placo behind the desk and "began to read, at o'clock. The President read easily and clearly, in his usual pleasing tones, which carried his oi'ds to the doors of the chamber. Tho solemn quiet Wli-lc-h attended the President's reading was broken general ajjplau.se when, he read his vinws on the .Mexican situation in the emphatic words: "There ean be no Or peace in America until General Huerta !has 'surrendereJ ua auuiuritv in Mexico."

President Wilson's message was a foliows: Gentlednen of the Congress: In pursuance my constltutiona duty to "give to tho Congress in- formation or tbo state nf tho I take the liberty of addressing you 01 several matters which ought, as i: seems to me, particularly to engar.' the attention of your honorable bod IRS, as of all who study the wolfan and progress of the nation. J shall ask your Indulgence 1f 3 venture to depart in some degree from the usual custom of setting be-for- you In formal review the many mat- ters which have engaged the attentioi and called -for tho action of the aev eral departments of the governmeni or which look to them for early treat ment In tho future, because the Hal is long, very long, and "would suffer In the abbreviation to which I shoulc have to subject it. I shall submit t( you the reports o; the heads of th( several in which these subjects are set forth in careful de- tail, and -bog that they may receive the thoughtful attention of your com- mittees and of a'll members of tin Congress who may have the leisure U study them. Their obvious importance as constituting the very nubstance oi tho business of the government makes comment and emphasis on part unnecessary. The country, I am thankful to say, IE at peaco with all tile world, and man> happy manifestations multiply us of a growing cordiality and sense of community of interest among the nations, foreshadowing an age of set- tled peace and igoud will. 'More and more readily each do the na- tions manifest their willingness to bind themselves by aoiomn treaty to th' processes of peace, the wocesses c frankness and fair concession. So far the United States has stood at th front of such negotiations. She will I earnestly hopn and eonrulently be llcve, give fresh proof of her sincer adherence to the cause of intornatum al friendship by ratifying the sovera treaties of arbitration nwolting newnl by tho Senate.

Chief Interest Seems to Centre in Fourth and Fifth i-ast Year's Figures. The city election opened under tho nailer chilly weatjier this morning. It looked gloomy and it Ceil cold, but the workers wore out in torce early, and started to out a big vote. Apparently they were suc- cetding for taking the total cast at times between 1 and 2 this afternoon there seemed to be about 00 more than were In at about the same hour last year.

It may also fan that there is rnu.rt; Interest in anil that men year are this election this year, ho failed to vote last casting their ballots. There is a lavish display of printed atter all over the city.

In line places a voter has a chance to ceive nearly 40 ballots before he. aches the gate; in other places ey are content to hand out n couple, lie small districts are naturally lorl on workers, as the chief interest ntres in the five big districts. Tho chief Interest seems lo the Fourtn and Fifth -wards. That because of the keen competition of ie candidates for the Co'infil.. who out in force and arc not afraid let the voters know, liy handing ,em tickets, that they are trying to 1 in the running. In the "First First voting dls- ict, the "Old at the No. 2 ngine house, thing's liorc their usual uiet aspect. There were a few work- 's around, but no special excitement, lough there had been something to ary the monotony early in :he morn- g. The number of. ticket rasscrs as small compared with other ho rival forces had prepared two ckets and two ticket passers served r all the Council, a great saving in inters' ink, and also in workers. The ote eame in earlier than last year, first bO being In at against i last year; the first 10" at gainst last year; 150 al ist year at 200 at ItuU ear At 1 there, were IMS votes n, or more than 20 votes ahead.

Things were humming m tnc D.K istrict of the Second ward. hev must be early If they wish to uav'o their voles in. There was an rmy of workers, oach with tickets, nd apparently by agreement they ormed a line and passed out tickets s the voters entered.

The oto began to come in early, 78 be- ng ra.st 'in tho hour and 124 at a in.; at 10 there were 203 votes, gainst 266 last year; at 11 there were 15, at noon SCO. at 1 p. m. 425 and at p. m 494.

Tn Ehe Second district at the Sol- iers and Sailors monument, the vote TTne out rather earlier. At noon it .'as against lust year, and at p. m. agolnsl 70 last year. The Third ward, district 1, st nes' fire station, at was a trifle chind the vote ol' last year, the count :sn to 32S. There was a host f workers. In the Second district of same ward, on Pelham street, nero was also n falliriK off the vote cing 55 at 1 o'clock against 58 the ear before. At the Fourth ward polling- place n Young street., tho station of Truck tne vote was .100 at 1 o'clock, gainst at and 366 at year ago. Here was the real Ufa f the southern part of the c.ity in early afternoon and the workers vere keeping the ward officials busy. The Fifth ward, district 1. in the ribernian hall on Wellington avenue, howed considerable life this afier- loon, but not so much as in tho rnorn- ng. The vote at was 343, against 15 a fiuarler of an hour earlier last In district on Perry street, he vote was 14. against 15 a year ago.
