or rar=: art that makes a happy .home.
The six wise men of Greece gave prescriptions
for a happy home. Solon says
a happy home is a place where a man's
estate was gotten without injustice, kept
without disquietude and spent without
repentance. Chilo says that a happy
home is the place where a man rules as
a monarch a kingdom. Bias says that a

"Return to thine own house and shew
how great things God hath done unto
thee." Now, in the first place, we waGt
religion in our domestic daties.
Every housekeeper needs ereat grace.
If Martha had had more religion, she
would not have rushed with such bad
temper to scold Mary in the presence ot
Christ. It is no small thing to keep order,
and secure cleanliness, and mend
breakages, aod achieve economy, ana
cotrol all the aftairs of the household advantageously.
Expenses will run up,
store bilh will come in twice as large as
you think they ought to be, lurniture will
wear out, carpets will unravel, and the
martyrs cf the fire are very few in comparison
with the martyrs o-. housekeeping.
Yet there are hund. eds of people
in this church this morning who in their
homes are managing all these aflairs
with a composure, an adroitness, an ingenuity
and a faithfulness which they
never could have reached but for the
grace of our practical Christianity. Tbe
exasperations which wear out others
tn vcu sDiritual development
and sanctiGcatlon. Employments which
seemed to relate oily to an hour have
on them all the grandeurs of eternal history.
You need the relision oi Christ in *he
discipline of your children. The rod
which in other homes mav be the first
means used in yours will be the lasr.
There will be no harsh epithets?"you
knave, you villain, you scoundrel, I'll
trash the life out or jou; you are the
worst child I ever knew." AH thai
kind of chastisement makes thieves pick
pcckets, murderers and the outlaws o?
society. That parent who in an^er
strikes his child across the head desrrve*
the penitentiary. And yet this work of
discipline must be attended to. Gcd's
grace can direct us. Alas, for those who
come to tbe worK wito nercc passion sua

laxativeness Ihere is no choice. Both
rninous and boih destructive. But tbere

children ar? very impresfible jast now.
They are alert; they are gathering impressions
you have no idea of. Have
yon not been surprised sometimes,
months or years afier some conversation
which you supposed was too profound or
intricate for them to understand?some
question of the child demonstrated the
fact that he knew all about it?
Yonr children are apt to think that
what ycu do is right. They have n?
ideal of truth or righteousness but yourself
Things which yon do, knowing at
the time to bs wrong, they take to be
ri^ht. They reason this way: "Fath*
?r alwau dees right. Father d:d th;s.
Therefore this is right." Tbat is good
logic hot bad premises. No one ever
gets over having a bad example set him.
Your cenduct more than jour teaching
makes impression. Your laugh, your
frown, your dress, your walk, your
greetings, your goodbye, your comings,
your goings, your habits at the table, the
tones of your voice, are making an lm
pression which will last a mnuon years
after you are dead, and the Bun will be
extinguished, and the mountains will
crumble, and the world will die, and
eternity will roll on in perpetual cylces,
but there will be no dimurition of the
force of your couduct upon the young
eyes that saw it or the young ears that
I beard it.
! Now, I would aot have by Ibis the
Idea given to you that you mu3t be in
cold reserve in the presence of yoar children.
Your are not emperor; you are
companion with them. As far as yon
can you must walk with them, skate with

in all that interests them. Spensippcis,
the nephew and successor of Plato in the
academy, had pictures of joy and gladness

You must not give vour children the impression
that when they come to you
they are plavful ripples striking against
a reek. "Ycu mu3t have them understand
that ycu were a boy once yourself

So it was demoostrated in a police
court in Canada, where a motner, her
little cMld ! her aroaa. sat by a table on
wh'Cu her own handcuffs lav, and the lit
tie babe took up the handcuffs and played
with them and had great glee. She
knew not the sorrow of the hour. And
then when the mother was sent to prison
the mother cried out: "Oh, God, let-not
this babe go into the jiU! Is there not
some mdther heie who w;ll take this
child? It is good enough for heaven. It
is pure. I am bad. I am wicked. Is
there not some who will take this child?
I cannot have it tainted with the prison"
Then a brazen creature rushed up and
said, "Yes, I'll take the child." "Xo,
no," said the mother, 4*not you, not you.
Is there not some eood mother here who
will take this child?" And then, when

There is contention already among
?ninistering spirits of salvation and fal*
leu angels as to who shall have the siastery
cf that immortal spirit. Your children
are soon going out in the world.
The temptations of life will rush upon
tbem. The most rigid resolutioa will
bend in the blast of evil. What will be
the result? It will require all the restraints
of the gospel, all the strength

Too early to brine them to God? Do you
know bow early children were taken to
the ancient passover? The rule wa3 jast

lather's hand and walk up Mount Moriah
they should be taken to the parsover.
Y^nr children are not tooyouag to come

A. Christian minister said that m the
first year of his pastorate he tried to persuade
a youoiT mechanic of ihe importance
of lamily worship. Some time
passed, and the mechanic came to the
pastor's study and said: '-Do yon remember
that sirl? Tbat was my own
child. She died this morning yery 3ud
denlv. She has gone to God, I uave no
dcubt, but it so she bas told him what I

say VI us: i uevcr ucatu my lawci

Again, I remark, we want rel^i^n in
all our home sorrows. Tnere are 10,000
questions tbat cjme up in the best regulated
household that mu3t be settled.
Perhaps the lather has one favorite in
ibe family, asd the mother another favorite
in the family, and there a? e many
questions that need delicate treatment.
Tyrany and arbitrary decision have
! no place in a household. If the parents
love God, there will be a spirit of selfj
sacrifice, and a spirit of forgiveness, and
a kindness which will throw its charm
over the entire household. Christ will
ccme into thai hoasehold and will sa>:
' Husbands love your wives anc! be not

Rnf thp.rft will hft sorrows that will
come to the household. There are bat
few families that escape the stroke of financial
misfortune. Financial misfortune
come3 to a house where there is no
religion. They kick against divine allotments,
they curse God for the incoming
calamity, they withdraw from the
world because they cannot hold as high
a position in society as they once did,
and they fret, and they scow!, and they
sorrow and they die. Burin? the past
few years there have been tens of thous

But misfortune comes to the Chris
tain household. If religion has full
sway in that home, they stoop gracefully.
They savs, "This is right." The
father says, ''Perhaps money was getting

to make me a better Christian by
putting me through the furnace of

this hitter day! God has dealt very
severely with me; I can never look up.
0 God, I cannot bear it!" Christ comes
in, and he says: "Hush, 0 trouble soul;

Bat there are hundreds of families
represented here this morning where
religion has been a great comfort,.
There are in.vour homes the pictures
of your departed and thiogs that have
no wonderful value of themselves, but
you keep them preciously and carefully
because bands now still once touched
them. A father has gone out of this
household, a mother has gone out of <
this, a daughter just after her graduation
a son j -isr as he was entering on
the duties of life.
And to other homes trouble will
come. I say it is not that you
may be foreboding, not that you
may do the unwise thing of
taking trouble by the forelock, but that
you may be ready. We must go one by
one. There will be partings in all our
households. We must s*y farewell. We
must die. And yet there are triumphant
strains that down these tremulous
accents; tnere are antnems tnai
whelm tne.dirge. Heaven is full of the
shout of aeliverec captives, and to the
great wide field of human sorrow there
come now the reaper angele with keen
sickles to harvest the sheaves of heaven.
Saints will to end the ea-iure;
Saftey will the nhepard keep
Those he purchased for his sheep.
Go home this day and ask the blessiog

set up the family altar. Do not wait
until you become a Christian yourself.

Washington, iipm n.??ne ?iouse
was precipitated at once, upon the
opening of the session today" into an
animated, not to say bitter, controversy
over the proposition to count a quorum.
Immediately afcer the chaplain
had concluded the Lord's Prayer, Mr
Catchings got the Ibor and stated that
by direction of the committee on rules,
he would withdraw the report of the
committee made last ;veek, proposing
to fine members for unexcused absences
and failures to vote. That having
been done, he offered the resolution
agreed upon by the committee as a
substitute for the DeArmond resolution,
referred to the committee by the
Democratic caucus last Friday. Following
is the resolution:
Amend iiule 15,by inserting between
Clauses 1 aud 2 tne following as Clauses
2 and change the number cf Clauses
2 and change the number of before the
beginning thereof, the speaker shall
noma torn mamheps Ann frv>rn o9f>h ciirtu

who shall tnke their places at the clerk's
desk to tell the names of at least i
enough members who are ia the haii
of the House during the oil call whu
do not respond, when added to those
responding, to make a quorum. If a
quorum dues not respond on the roll
call, then ths names of those so noted
or present shall be ieported to the
Speaker, w ho shall cause the list to be
called from the clerk's desk and recorded
on the journal; and in determining
'he presence of a quorum to do business,
those who vo ed, those answered
preseut and those so reported present,
shall be considered. Members noted
may, wueu uitrir uauiea ard yaueu, tocord
their votes notwithstanding the
provision:? of Claus-1 of the Rale.
Amend Clause 1 of Rule 8 by adding
thereto the following words: Aod on a
roll call, should he not vote, he shall
ans wer'"present" so as to read: ''Every
member shall be present within the
hall of the house duriDg its sittings,
ualt-ss excused or nectssarily prevented,
and shall vote on each question put,
unless he has a direcc personal or pecuniary
interest in the event of such '
question, and on a roll call should he
not vote, he shall answer "present."
When it had been read Catchings
asked unanimous consent that the pre
vious question on the passage or tne
resolution be considered ord?red, and
that debate be elnsed in an hour and a
half, the time to be controlled by the
Speaker of the House. At once tbere
was opposition manifested on the Dem
ocratic side, and so much confusion
existed that the proceedings could not
be distinguished at the Speaker's desk.
Burrows asked to be allowed to offer
as a substitute for the rule reporttd,
the rule inforced in the Fifty-first Con- '
gress. as representing the vie^s of the
This was agreed to and the iule was
read as follews: "On the demand of any 1

Catchiags' request for unanimous 1
consent was then submitted, and Wells |
(Dem) of Wisconsin objected.
Cachings then moved that the pre- .
vious question be ordered on the pas
sage of the resolution. On. division, the
vote was aye3,128; nays, 98.
The Republicans generally voted 1
against ordering the previous question. ,
Tne yeas ana nays were Gemanaea ana
ordered, resulting yeas, 140; nays, 120; ;
so the previous question was ordered.
Burrows said that the rule reported ;
by the committee and the substitute
offered by him both contained the prin- ,
ciple of counting a quorum, differing
only as to detail, jtfot desiring to embarrass
or delay the option of tne prin- ;
ciple by the House, desiring rather ;
that the Democratic majority should
nave an unobstructed opportunity 1
to endorse the Fifty-first Congress, he
would withdraw the substitute.
The debate was opened by Caterings
In explanation of the rule, saying it
was the result of the action of the caucus
of last Friday.
Springer said the proposed rule contemplated
no change of the Constitution;
it was only a proposition whereby
the House could do the business for
which the members had been sent here.
(Republican applause.) The House
had sat here for a month past and done
scarcely two day's work. He was tired
of it,he said, and hoped the House was.
He should hail the adoption of the
ruie as cue uawa ui a UBLter era m piumotmg
legislation. (The delivery of
Springer's remarks was accompanied
by almost continuous appiause from
the Republican benches.)
Kilgore was greeted with a round of
applause as he began to speak, which
caused Speaker Crisp to warn tne galleries
tbat they were present by courtesy
of the House, and that tbe rules required
them to refrain from any dem
onitration what'-yer. "In this case,"
said tbe Speaker, ''the chair noticed
tnat tbe applause started in the galleries."

adoption 01 tats ruie, ui vvumu m- got*tieman
from Maine (Reed) was the parent.
T&h rule was unnecessary in tiis
opinion. Rules were not adopted by
parliamentary bodies to exp--dir,tj but
to hiader the transaction of business;
to bridle the majority and to compel
it to tafce all the responsibility of legislation.
Russell of Georgia lamented the humiliating
spectacle presented to the
country "by the Democratic majority of
the H.ousa, with seventy or eighty
more votes than the Republicans and
thirty-nine more than a .majority, finding
themselves unable to do business
without calliag to their aid the excep;
tional and revolutionary methods of
the Fifty first Congress.
Mr. iteea Siia: "i ao not aesire to
acdress the House again upon the general
subject. Thi3 scene here today is
a more effective address than any I
could make. Tne House Is about to
aaopt the principle for which we contended
in the Fifty-first Congress, and
is about to adopt it under circumstances
which show conclusively to the
country its value. Xo worcs that I can
utter can add to tne importance of tbe
occasion. I congratulate the Fiftythird
Congress upon the wise decision
it is about to make. (Applause on the
Outhwaite spoke in favor of the proposed
new rule. Cumminj?s opposed it.
The debate was closed by Catchings,
who pointed out the necessity for toe
adoption of the rule, and said the present
conditions were widely diiierent
from those which obtained in the Fifty-first
Congress and against which
the Democratic party protested.
While Catcbings was speaking Bynum
rose to a point of order that
Catcbings had exceeded the limit of
time remaining to him.
The Speaker: The time is being kept

The Speaker (sharply); The chair

This colloquy was greatly enjoyed
by the Republicans.
The vote on tbe passage of the reso
luMon was announced at 2 o'clock to

resolution was agreed to.
The announcement was received with
loud applause on the Republican side,

Burrows called attention to the
speech of Wheeler (Dm.) of Alabama
contained ia the Record today. The
gentleman had baen granted one minute
by Catchlngs yesterday, Burrows
said, in which to express his views on
the quorum counting rule. In that
minute, according to the Record, he
nad been aDle to say enough to fill four
colums of the Record. He knew that
the eentleman was a rapid talker, bat
he did not believe he could talk that

Reed?It is his duty to be here, and f
if we had a proper system of fines for i
absence, doubtless he would be. I
Burrows said that having called at- ,
temion to the matter he was willing to ?
postpone further consideration until ,
Wne-ler was present. If he had deliv- ,
ered that speech in the minute he was

taken to expung the speech from the
Record. The matter was thereupon
posponed. The House went into com
mittee of the whole, Bailey of Texas in
the chair, for the consideration of the
diplomatic and consular appropriation ,
The debate was entirley political'
with only incidental reference to the ,
bill before the House. In its course,
Mr. Wise (Dem.) of Virginia read from '
the Record to show the position tafcen (
by ex-Speaker Reed when the amend- <
mentoffered by J. Randolph Tucker of 1
Virginia to the rules, providing for the <
counting of a quorum, was under dis- :
uussion in the Forty-eighth Congress. I
He showed that Reed opposed the \
amendment and added with^ much ,
3pirit that "this adulation of Thomas <
B. Reed by the Republican party was a
Wise went on to say that Reed was
Dot the originator of this proposition
to count a quorum until it was iirst proposed
by'a Democrat from Virginia.
Grosv^nor (Rsp.) of Ohio, who had
several times attempted without success
to interrupt Mr. Wise?May I ask
the gentleman a question ?
Wise, emphatically and amid general I
laughter?I cannot refuse you the cp- i
portunity to talk. '
Grosvenor?Was that a Democratic ?,
Wise replied that it was; and added
that it was his purpose to strip Thos Jt5.
Reed of the false colors under which he ,
had sailed. He added that Springer of
Illinois had voted and spoken for the
"That vote," said Keed, sotto voce, 1
"accounts for its defeat."
"Garfield." continued Wise, "voted
against it and denounced it as unconstitutional;
30 that this pretense that
the country is indebted to the Republican
party for this rule, is a base lie. On
lhat occasion, Reed denounced the proposed
rule as a violation of the Constitution
and the Republican leaders
joined him in the denunciation."
Wise stated that he refused to vote
yesterday for the rule because he had
bad no opportunity to examine it, and
because there was no chance to debate
it. But he believed that if the power
resided in the House to bring a man
from California to his seat, the House
had a right to count his presence for
the transaction of busineas.

Savannah, April 15.?The city authorities
sat dowa on Sunday baseball
in Savannah today. Savannah and
Macon agreed to play the game scheduled
for Monday, today, leaving Monday
a rest ofday. Announcements of the
game were made in the newspapers
and scattered through the city. This
morning the mayor notified the chief ot
polic9 not to permit the game. The
management of tbe club was also notified.
The grounds are just beyond She
city Umits, but under the city ordinance
giving the mayor jurisdiction
two milts beyond the limits, the game
conld not be nlaved. A detail of police
was stationed at the park gates to enforce
the mayor's order. Over two
thousand people went out expecting to
see the game. The action of the authorities
today will probably settle the
question of Sunday baseball in Savannah.
The management of the club will
not figh s the matter.

Clasb Between Striking Poles and a Sheriff's
Detroit, Mich., April 18.?Trouble
has been brewing- between the water
board and the Polish laborers engaged
to lay the pipe extension east of the water-works
near Connor's creek, four
miles from the city, over the question
of wages for soma days. These men
were quarrelsome yesterday and refused ,
to go to work themselues or allow any ,
one else to do so, but no serious out- \
At 5 o'clock this morning an angry 1
looking mob began to gather at the 1
scene and when 7 o'clock arrived, more J
than five hundred men carrying pick- ;
axes and spades were patrolling the '
road. Four policemen were sworn in )
as deputy sheriffs and a force of eigh- J
teen men were put to work. The stri- 3
kers threatened to kill the first man \
who dared attempt to do any work, ;
and when one of the men, more daring ;
than his feliow workmen, jumped into :
the ditch, he was savagely assaulted.
The handful of deputies were overpowered
and the strikers were left in possession
for the time being. At 10 o'clock
the mob further armed itself with
clubs and cudgels.
SberiK?&>lllns was telephoned for
and hurried to the scene, taking with
him balf a dozen deputies. After a
conference with the water board about
work for the day and then the clash
came. Wnen Eagineer "Williams attempted
to withdraw his men peacefully,
the strikers became furious and
made an onslaught on one of the men.
Sheriff Collies ordered the mob to dis
perse, threatening to shoot it the order
was not obeyed. The mob appeared
maddened, however, and continued the
attack. Then the sheriff ordered his
posse to (Ire. He stilted the action to
the words, and fired three shots from
his revolver ia rapid succession. This
was a signal for a volley from the deputies,
who emptied their revolvers at
the advancing mob. Two strikers were
shot dead, and at least fifteen others.
are more or less dangerously woanded.
This had a demoralizing effect on toe
mob and it fell back. Policeheadqaarters
were notified and a large force of
policemen were hurried to the scene,
aDd all the ambulances in the city.
The trouble commenced when Engineer
Williams gave the order for the
removal 01 ine sucuou puuips auu uuuis
from a small excavation that had been
made at the end of the pipe line fa
preparation for the work. As he spoke
in English, however, the mob did not
comprehend what he said. Sheriff Collins
stood near the excavation with a
deputy. The deputy spoke German and
told the mob that the water board had
given in and it only wanted to remove
its tools. Foreman Cathey then
jumped into the excavation and began
taking up the pump. One of the strikers
yelled: "Are we going to stand
this? Let us all strike together."
At this speech there was a forward
rush of the" strikers, who held their
sbovels and picks aloft. Cathy was
struck a blow on the head, which
knocked him to the bottom of the excavation.
Sheriff Collins waved his arms
wildly and fairly shrieked to the mob
to stand back, but his efforts were
wasted. No attention being paid to
what he said. Instead of retreating, he
drew his revolver and aimed it point
blank at the crowd. He tired three
shots as rapidly as he could pull the
trigger. Then a long-handled siovel
upraised behind him, descended swiftly
and a corner of it pierced his skull.
He was struck again and again and
was probably fatally injured. Foreman
Cathy is also fatally injured. One
member of the water works police was
seriously cut. The two strikers killed j
and all the wounded are Poles.

when Engineer Williams of the water
works sought to introduce a system of
paying the men by the cubic yard of
excavation instead of a daily wage
rate. The Polish laborers rebelled at
this and as a result the water board decided
to suspend operations.
This afternoon and evening deputy
sheriffs scoured the Polish quarter for
the rioters and by night fifty of the lawbreakers
had been gathered in. The
corridors of the jail cell block were
filled with them. About 6 o'clock a
group of Polanders gathered about the ;
jail and made ugly demonstrations. <
One of them was shot in the leg by a !
deputy sheriff and carted on ro a nospi- tal.
The crowd about the jail, mostly I
spectators, continued until midnight. .
The Polish quarter is all excitement
tonight. A meeting was arranged in
a Polish hall for tonight from which it
was declared the Polandera would
march to the jail and wreck it, but the J
police were watchful and the meeting ;
did not materialize. !

Washington, April 16.?Judge Izlar i
is rapidly becoming familiar with his
Congressional duties, and to-day he
made the round of the executive depart
merit in ine Interest of his constituents.
Se has been overrun with requests for
fiower and garden seed, and he says he
was not aware until he yislted the agricultural
department that the quota belonging
to the 1st district had been exhausted
for the present session by his
predecessor, Judge Brawley. It did not
take 3 udge Izlar long to learn that some
of the Congressmen who live in city
districts sometimes make exchanges of
seed for books and Congressional publications,
so Judge Izlar is now negotlat
ing a deal by which he hofes to fulfil
some of the requests for garden seed.
Ttiere is considerable comment
among the members of South Carolina
delegation over the revival of the
Hampton proposition to organize Anti- '
Tillman clubs throughout the State.
Representative Latimer says he does
not think it will assist in quieting the
contending factions to start such a
movement at this time. On the contrary,
he says it is calculated to increase
the bitterness on both sides and
3olidify the "Reform" element. He
is fearful that the recent outbreak at
Darlington and Florence is but a forerunner
of furher difficulty. He regrets
that the feeling between the town
folks and the country people is so intense,
and he also regrets that military
companies are being formed in many
country districts. iie preuicis iaai cue
coming campaign will be one of the
most exciting in the history of the
State and he is vsry much afraid it will
end io,bloodshed. He would like to see
ail the differences of opinion now existing
between the Conservative and
"Reform'" factions, growing out of the
dispensary law, submitted to a veto of
the people, and whichever side is outvoted
peacefully abide the result.
Judge Izlar is naturally cautious in discussing
the situation at home, for he ,
realizes that the feeling is running '
high between the contending factions,
and any thing said at this time is apt
t,o be misconstrued or misunderstood.
He does not see the propriety at this
time of starting the Hampton clubs.
He is very fond of Gen Hampton and
under ordinary circumstances would
cheerfully aid him in any movement
that is calculated to relieve; the
State from the present unhappy condition
of affairs. Judge Izlar, however .
is thoroushly familiar with the - existing
conditions, and he is disposed to accept
the views of The News and Courier
to the effect that the proposed
movement is untimely and perhaps illadvised
under .the present circumstances.
