The Committee on Privileges an 1 Elec
tions cf the Senate heard argument of
ounfel vesterdar in the case of John T
McGraw and members of the lcgslaturc of
prove Upon this the committee will de
termine whether it will go Into the ques
tions of fact and hear testimony acd
whclbcrit will determine the case by pass
ing only on the law points Involved tie
opposing counsel being agreed on many of
the faeis
The opening argument was made by
Judge Hilt Tlie first contention was that
Senator Scott did not receive a majority of
the votes of the Joint assembly of West
Virginla He said that the record icons
Uon its race that the Legislature of We t
Virginia consisted of ninety seven mem
bers and that Senator Scctt rc elvH but
fcrt -eight votes He held that two of the
votes cast for Senator Scott wen- of State
senators who had vacated their offices by
accepting military commissions In the Vol
unteer Army of the Initeil States
The point dwelt on by counsel was Uinl
the acceptance by Messrs Galzcndanncr
and Iicrson of offices of emolument under
tho Govctimcnt of the United States vacat
ed their offices as Slate senators Counsel
cited n number of authorities to sustain
this noint quoting at some length from
the nport of the Committee on the
iarj of the House of Iteprescnlatives in
the cafe of Gen Joseph heeler of Ala
bama
During a recess of the legislature Gat
yeudanner and Picison resigned their mili
tary commissions and re entered the State
a uatc There having been two vacancies
created bj the gentlemen upon their ac
ceptance of military commissions these
men could not again fill those vacancies
simply by their Individual acts The Leg
islature of West Virginia voted that
on TiT Knn Twm entitled to I
their scats but thet decision said counsel
for the remonstrants was not final as
constitutional question was involved The
Senate or the United States was asked to
construe the constitution of West Virginia
and lo determine tie qualification and re
turns of its own members Counsel
brought forward numerous authorities lo
sustain the contention that the Senate of
tlic Initcd States could go behind the re
lurtis cf a State legislature
Jud e Holt said
Then- is no question whatever that the
United States Senators must be elected bj
the Stale legislatures The Joint assem
Ml I- th legislature The language tit
the tut of 1W In requiring a majority t
the votes ot the Joint assembly must be
equivalent to requiring a majority xif -the
leclslature The act does net say or mean
a majority of votes cast but a majority
cf the legislature
It is tLe universal rule of law applying
to rll Imdies composed of a definite nura
br formed for the purpose of doing a
crie thing that a majority of the whole
Is miulred although a msjorlt where
notice is given lo all may transact busi
ness by a vote which represents the entire
ltody The coinmcn law rule In such eases
was that in such a liody all must be act
ually present anil In a number of English
eases It was held that the absence or the
mayor or a single member of a city couu
ell invalidated any election because an
Integral part of the body was absent The
later and better rule Is that those ab ent
must be considered in determining the
question of majority but that a majorit
if the body can meet for the transaction
of business
Judge Holt cntc cd upon a discussion of
the contention ot the remonstrants that
the election of Senator Scott is void on
the ground that the Joint convention was
held under a fraudulent private agreement
and not under the statute II was fol
lowed by Irank L Welles who maintained
thai Senatpr Scott at the time of his elec
tion as a United Slates Senator was not
an Inhabitant of the State in which lie
was elected as required under the Fed
eral Constitution He admitted that Sena
tor Scott at the time of his election was a
clllien of West Virginia Mr Welles said
m substance that for a great many pur
oscs tho terms inhabitants and rcti
ilents are snnnomous Hut a very differ
ent meaning was intended lo the word
inhabitant as used in the Constitution
At the time of his election Senator Scott
was holding a Federal appointive office
at Washington and living in that city
There Is no authority which holds that
a person residing in Washington holding
an appointive office is an inhabitant ot the
State frcm which he came eald Mr
Welles All the authorities hold Jie oth
er way The contention that this vvnuM
deprive Senators of the right to re tlcctlon
U not sound If a man is elected by his
neighbor and those who are
ants with hltn to represent them for a
tenn of years he retains Ills inhabitancy
localise he remains as their agent in on
siast tench with them Ilut a man wbu
leaves his State under an appointment of
the Federal Government and acts not as a
representative of tho State but of the Ied
Tal Government and inhabits the city of
Vashington for an Indefinite period iomt 8
rjthln the constitutional Inhibition
The office of Commissioner of Internal
Hcvenue has no definite term and the oc
cupant of that office being absent from
Ilis State for an indefinite period loses hid
inhabitancy
At the afternoon session of the com
mittee former Senator Faulkner presented
tho case for Senator Scott He maintained
that the Joint assembly met regularl
that 48 votes were cast for Kalhan It
Scott 4C for John T JlcGraw and 1 for
Judg Ooff Mr Faulkner proceeded lo
discus the question whether Senator
Scott at the time of his election as r
United States Senator was an inhabitant
of West Virginia Senator Tettus inter
rupted liim and told him to pass the point
by Senator llurrows also said Ves you
need not discuss that This was taken to
Indicate that the Senators thought Uie
1 olni made by the remonstrants against
Senator Scott was not worthy of further
onslderatlon
Passlnc to the question of the final
right of the legislature of a State lo con
strue the constitution of that Slate so far
as it concerns the eligibility of the mem
bers of such legislature llr Faulkner
maintained vigorously and eloquently that
the United States Senate could not enquire
Into the constituent parts of tho
legislature when the legality of Uioe
parts had been determined by the legisla
ture itself He defied the remonstrants to
rite a tingle precedent on which the
United States Senate or any of its com
mittees could base the action assed for by
the remonstrants Mr Faulkner discussed
at lencth the points of law involved In
Ills citation of authorities be was closely
followed by the members of the commit
tee present all ot them manifesting a
lively interest In legal technicalities

REORGANIZING THE SERVICE
llir Wenttirr Iliirenn Iltll lie Re
port ril Ill torn lilj
One of the most interesting bills lint will
shortly come up In thy House Is the meas
ure reported by Mr Wadworth from the
Committee on Agriculture which provides
for a reorganization of the United States
Weather Rurcau One of the features of
the bill which has attracted attention is
the granting of authority to the employes
of the bureau to create exclusively from
their own moneys n fund for the retire
ment ot disabled and aged officials this to
be accomplished without one dollar of ex
pense to the Federal Government and In
such a way that at no lime in the future
can the Federal Government be called on
The report concludes as follows
To briefly summarize the salient fea
tures of the proposed law It may be said
that It apportions appointments among
Senators Representatives and Delegates
without regard to their political faith and
It provides that candidates shall be nomi
nated under such conditions as will render
the department who are well posted In It dlilicult If not Impossible to affect the
pension matters There is no pcrious ob- permanent appointment or Hie promotion
jectlon to his lioard as it now stands ex- j of an unfit person It prohibits the use of
ecpt that it docs uot icess the required I political or other Influences to seriire pro
legal authority and is not made up of motion or assignment We believe that this
ncnt jurists It is also felt by the com- measure properly co ordinates the pre
millet that when Congress passes the rogatlves of Congress and the executive
amendment lo pension laws now desired officers of the Government In the matter
the laws themselves will be sufficiently J cf the appointment to and th control ot
clear and explicit and will only need
the weather service It places each
ploje strictly upou his merits and com
pels him to work out his own salration
while the present law leaves this to the
will of the executive officer or the rules of
a commission It prohibits the removal
of any cmplojc for iolltical reasons and
makes his tcnurr of office secure so long
as his services arc advantageous to the
Government and no longer Without one
cent of expense lo the Government it pro
vides far the separation from the public
pa rolls of disabled aged or only partly
efficient employes and at the same time It
provides support in their hours of need
The bill is strictly in line with th
most advanced ideas on civil service as
espoused by man executive officers who
have had wide experience in the public
service and who are earnest in their de
sire to maintain either the existing laws
on tbe civil service or an improvement
uiou tbeni
The lull is strong endorsed by the
department commander of the Grand
Army of tbe District ot Columbia by the
last past department commander ot the
same District by the commander-in-chief
of the Grand Arm of the Republic by
all the large maritime asi idations cf Ihe
United States by the principal boards of
trade cotton cm lunges pioducc and com
mercial exchanges essel masters asso
ciations and by the press in ever Stale
In the Union as evidenced by Several hun
dred editorial expressions wnich the com
mittee lias received Among these edi
torials there ate less Hun a dozen dis
senting opinions
While allowing nominations to lie iniile
by the rore eiilat ves of the people the
bill provides such a high standard for
admittance to the service and fueli a
rigid system of merit after tlic candidate
Is once nppoiutcd as lo coinmaid the

Wit Ting Fang the Chinese Minister was
applauded when he arose to speak He said
In part
I am here to protect the Interests of my
country and my countrymen but In so do
ing nothing would make me want to hurt
ou or jour country My one object In life
Is to cement and draw closer the happy
relations now existing between our respec
tive countries
We all know that Chlni Is one of the
greatest markels of the world with a imp
utation of 400000000 who must be fed and
clothed and receive the necessaries of life
She wants your wheat jour cotton your
iron and steel and your manufactured ar
ticles of the New Knglaml States She
wants steel rail electrical machines and
one hundred other things that she cannot
get at home and must get abroad It is n
fine field for American industry to fill these
wants It is particularly easy for jou to
reach China on account of the fine high
way you have on the Iacific and especially
desirable that you do so since vou have be
come our next door neighbor In the Ihll
Ipplnes If you do not come up to your
own expectations and meet this opportunity
it Is your own fault
Although China wants these things
America will have lo go Iff China to sell
them Americans must study the require
ments and wants of the Chinese It wont
do for you to dump your surplus goods on
them because they wont take them You
mu3t exhibit your goods because Chinese
will not buy on trust as they must see and
bo pleased with what they arc going to pay
their money for
Here Is another hint Be more civil lo
them Remember they have been brought
up in a different way from you and that
in many questions their etiquette differs
from that prevalent In Wall Street Let
there be no more browbeating such as has
been going on for many years Civility
goes a long way Deal fairly with them
This Is no insinuation that oit iheat but
dont try to b too sharp The Chinese
have always hellevcd that verbal con
tracts are binding They have had some
shocking experiences with Americans who
held that nothing but a written contract
was binding That question should be
looked into
Above all things else lei roc warn you
lo lie careful how you treat your new sub
jects In the rhlllDPtnes 1 feel my duty
to warn you as a friend rl tnc United
States who fears that his efforts on your
behalf may be frustrated If any unfair
advantage Is taken ot the Filipinos I
know that such actions would cause a gen
eral mistrust in all China and ruin all
prospects of trade there You must treat
them in a manner not on
the principle of taking all and giving noth
ing
The Japanese Minister said he was
pleased to welcome in the efforts of the
Japanese themselves the addition of
American energy and skill for the work
still to be done and the Industrial im
provements still to I made He rejoiced
that In tho Presidents message and in all
the acts of Congress as well as In the
business world such h arty good will had
been shonn toward Japan and Insisted
that nowhere would American Industries
be more welcome than In his country
Sir Denby an Mr Ilarretl 1 oth urged
