MUNICIPAL LHAOtm WORK.
The nniesslty of a municipal league

Already the nucleus for the civic
federation or municipal league Is be
ing formed in more than one portion
of tho city. In the Punchbowl section
of Maklkl Col. Will H. Klsher has In a
quiet way laid tho lines for n district
Improvement association. The resi
dents of Kallhl will be heard fiom at
no far distant day. Tho work is going
on slowly nt the present time, but ns

tho civic federation Is an nccomplshed
fact. The local District Improvement

In the Chinatown district fear of a
plague epidemic need not troublo tho
minds of ine people. Tho country that
falls to glvo d.uo recognition to homo
builders when In Boarch for labor must
nooner or later pay the penalty for ItEi
short sighted action.
Washington, Jan. 10. With tho
openliig of today's session of tho Sen
ate, Mr. Cullom of Illinois, presented a
petition, handsomely bound and sign
ed by 3,200 colored persons nsklng for
such legislation ns will protect colored
men of this country from tho "Unrbar
oiis practlco of lynching and burning
of colored men."
Mr. Cullom asked that tho petition bo
rcfened to tho Committee on Judiciary,
Although ho said, It might bo deslrnblo
to lefcr It to tho Commlttteo on Privi
leges and Elections.
Air. Hoar, chairman of tho Judiciary
Committee, said ho believed every
Senator would bo glad to linvo such
niensuica adopted us would mipprcss
this wrong doing ami ennblo tho olll
olals to enforce the laws. No Scnntor,
he thought, would dlsngrco to that. Ho
directed attention to tho fact that the
stuto laws tako cognizance of thu
crimes referred to In the petition. Ily
what coiiHtlttiutloual method tho
United Slates could tako action In this
question Is a dlttlrult query.
Mr. Chandler, clmlrman of thu Com
mllteo on Pilvlleges nnd Elections,
thought It deslrnblo j iu peifcctly
frank. Thero Is no power In Congress,
said ho, "to provent or punish crimes
committed In various States. If tho
States do not punish crimes for tho
punishment of which they havo enacted
laws, no Federal law can tako tho place
of useless State laws."
Mr. Chandler said theio was no rod
rrul law under which tho violator of
oven the suffrage laws tould bo pun
ished. Mr. Spooner of Wisconsin "Thnio Is
such Perioral legislation."
Mr. Chandler "There Is not now
such legislation. Congress has no con
stitutional power to punish such
Mr. Cullom thought that Inasmuch as
It Involved new legislation, tho peti
tion go to the Commlttcto on Judiciary.
"This subject." Mr. Cullom said,
"seems to call for Investigation. Theso
peoplo realize thoy aro being badly
treated. Such treatment is without au
thority of law, nnd It ought to bo stop
ped It possible"
Mr. Tillman of South Carolina
"What Is tho Immediate causa of this
potltlon? Does It como from Chicago?"

hood. The Invitation which the Call
fornlnns presented to Admiral Dewey

tho Invitation, stated that California
would nt all times bo proud to extend
tho hospitality of that Stato to Ad
miral Dewey. He added that there was
no more fitting occasion for his visit
than tho Golden anniversary of Cali
fornia's admission to tho Union. His
invitation was given further weight by
Senator Perkins, who referred to tho
fact that tho Admiral's flagship, tho
Olympla, was built In San Francisco
and that tho people of that city felt
that they owed to him and his fleet
a debt of gratitude for having effectual
ly prevented tho Spnnlsh squadron in
Manila bay from crossing tho ocean to
bombnrd the Golden Gato metropolis.
Admiral Dewey said ho would cer
tainly visit California at somo llmo In
the future, but wns not ready to Mate
at pescut whether ho would be ,ible to
