On tlie day fixed upon, all the orders, after
having been present at divine service, assemble
in the throne-room, where the Emperor or his
representative reads an address to the Estates
and declares the Diet open, after which the
Presidents in turn make speeches, in which
they tender their homage to His Majesty. The
Emperor then communicates to the Estates a
list of the legislative measures proposed to be
submitted to them.

Within eight days of the opening, each
ordinary Diet forms five committees charged with
the preparation of the various matters to be
considered. These are : the legislative
committee, the committee on economical questions,
the finance committee, the extraordinary taxes
committee, and the bank committee.

The Diet may also form other special
committees, should such bo thought necessary.

There are twelve or sixteen members on each
committee, a quarter of whom are chosen by
each order, by means of electors nominated for
that purpose. Senators may not be members of
a committee.
