West "Virginia Senator II nil Pro

eral's Dlevution to the Supreme
jieiiiij A OuiU date of ills ior uf
fice Aliened tuHnve u Hail lleeord.
A few days since Senator Elklnr,
called at the White House to protect
against the appumtnient of Attorney uen
eral McKenna to he justice of the Su
preme Court. The objection urged by the
West Virginia Senator was, in the main,
that -Mr. MoKcnnu's opinion ruling against
section 22 or the Dlngley tariff law wan
unnuud. This particulur section was a
pet boheme of -Mr. Elkmr,, and, according
totbetestim.iiiyof Dingley. Reed and other
Republican statesmen, Senator .Elkins ran
lit that section li. conference when
they ay ere not looking.
The Attorney General now has a very
good chance to even tcores with Air.
Ulkuib. Tliere Is no doubt that he will do
to; it Is not clear how lie can doothei
wlse. Not long ago, at the request of Senator
Elklns, the Attorney Geneial appointed
Sam C, Burdette, of West Virginia, to be
au asslntant United btales attorney for
that Slate There were strong piotests.
from the people of the vicinity, but Mi.
J21kn& insisted that Burdettc should get
the iffice. Burnctte's eritic 'have been
at wVk on his record, and have laid it
before the Attorney General. This comes
lu at a good time to enable McKenna to
dlc"--d't the Senator at the Wldte House
and prevent him from further injuring
the Attorney General's chances for the
Judgeship he hcekH.
It appKirs fioni tne record that Senator
Elkins' -Tieiul, Burdette, has held offico
lrore his lecent appointment. He is a
man wltn a past. On the 2lst or April,
1881, ne wat made commissloiipr of schnnl
lands for Kanawna county, audoerved until
18S4. It v.-as a part of Ilurdette's di'ty to
bell, under court decrees, certain lands on
wnich taxes had not been paid, and to
deposit tne proceeds In the State treasury,
to me credit of the school fund. From the
taleof inese delinquent tax lands Burdette
received $l0,4i3.72 dining hn term of
office. The lwoks show , it is clain.ed by
tnose wlh have filed charges, that he de
posited In the State trcas-ury butS3.1C.1.0.l.
Naturally there were many people tn
West Viiginia who objected to this al
leged manner or performing a public trust,
and the State auditor began biiit against
Eiudetfce and his bondsmen to recover the
n.ilanrr rialineri to be due the State. The
bond wab found to be "Worthiest., aud 'ip
to the present time the money has nol
been recovered. When Burdette became
an applicant for tiic oftice of assistant
attorney objection was made to a man
of this record being entrusted with .sii'.h
duties. But Mr. Elkint.' powerful influ
ence at the White House decided the mut
ter in favor of Burdette. Unfortunately
the asslstnnt attorney does not need to nc
confirmed by the Senate, or the Democrats
and Popnlists would -have made suor
work or his nomination.
Tli" casf against Burdette is said to be a
very clear one. The record Is now being
examined by the Attorney General, and
there is little doubt that the duty of
prosecuting Federal offenders In We.st V'r
ginip 8oqn will be placed in other hands.
The Attorney General has a good an mice
to purify the public service, ami at the
same U.ns to whisper a few words to the
President almut Senator Elkins, In return
for the coinpPments the Senator has paid
The attention of the Attorney General

a general way, had been made hereto

been made in bpedflc and convincing form.
The matter will be referred to the district

assistant will be awaited, and then what

Eljjht, Ptirtiiipated ii: Geneinlly.
Vienna, Nov. 2-1. Recent cabledibpatches
have told of the disgraceful scenes that
have repeatedly marked tee proceedings
of -the Relchhrath, the members of which
appear to have lost all eene of decency
in their political animosity. The sitting
this afternoon opened with the usual feigns
of a brewing storm, and the proceedings
had not progressed far before there "was
a riot that was without parallel in the
usually tumultuous chamber.
In the courte, or the debate, which was
on the bill providing for the renewal for
one year of the Aus.tro-IItmgarIan agree
ment, Herr Von Abramovlcvr newly elect-.
cd president, refused to give the floor
to Herr Georg Schoenerer, a leader of
the German opposition, who has been
most active in precipitating disorder in
A tumult followed the president's re
fusal, and, while the uproar was nt its
height, Herr Schoenerer forced his way
to the president's tribune and seized the
bell that Is iibed in calling the members
to order. Herr Potoczet rushed to Schoen
erer with the intention of getting the
bell and returning it to the president.
The latter, apparently imagining that a
personal attack was about to be made
upon him, turned nnd fled from the trib
une. Meanwhile, the deputies from both sides
swarmed to the tribune, where they jostled
each, other roughly. The ministers then
withdrew from their seats in frout of the
president's tribune, and left the chamber.
As soon as they bad disappeared a free
tight took r!nce between the members
in the tribune, nnd, there being no evi-
dent liope of restoring a
ordcr one f Ul(, vjce
presidents who hau
retained his seat throughout the riot, de
clared the sitting busponded for half .in
When the chamber again assembled
Schoenerer again demanded that he be

Anton. Sjtelncfj.rus'ned m the tribune, where
they persisted in sitting, despite, the presi
dent's effort1? to Induce them to retire.
Herr Wolfi amused himself by shouting
and pounding upon a table, while the
others added to the confusion in various
Finallir the president, baited beyond en
durance, shouted, to the sergeant at-arnw.
'Deliver me from those who are rendering
it impossible tor me to exercise my duties.-"
Immediately the crowd of Czechs and
Poles rushed upon Wolff and the others
occupying the tribune. Herr Breznowskl,
a ruembei for Prague, was the first to
reach Wolff and dealt him a tenific blow.
Wolff, pale with fury, shouted" "I will
bring a revolver tomorrow," whereat Herr
Potoczet seized him by the throat and
put him out of the tribune. Pferscho drew
a knife and would undoubtedly have done
damage with it had not a friend wrenched
it away fioni him.
At this lime there were a hundred depu
ties scrambling around the tribune und
the steps around the seats of the
ministers. Schoenerer grablied a chair
und swinging it aiound his head struck
a number or the Czechs, who were attempt
lug to get at him. In the meantime a
German-Liberal dodged in on him and
seized him by the throat, whereupon
Scuoeueicr dropped the chair and a lively
fight took place, both ot the men repeatedly

A dozen members were also fighting close

warfare, were shocked by the resort to
physical foice, and many of them cried

a little while and adjourned the sitting.

the air. Breznowskl snatched the bell out
of Wolff's hand and dealt him a blow in
the face with it. Wolffs eyeglasses fell
in fragments. He was momentarily unable
to move. Then recovering he .-ecmed
