Jlemb rs of Legislature Pay Ifespcct
' ' to Deceased Associate.' '
OUTLOOK FOR CENTENNIAL BILL.
Several Measures Launched In the
Bcnuto Notwithstanding the
Brief Time Before Final Ad
journietit House Items.
Columbus, O., April 10. When the
house- assembled the desk and vacant
chair of Mr. Clement of Medina was
found draped In crepe, and on the desk
a vase of flowers.
On motion of Mr. Swain a committee
of three was appointed by Speaker
Reynolds to draft suitable resolutions,
which shall be considered as a special
order the day and hour of the funeral.
That committee consists of Mr. Swain
of Hamilton, Mr. Rankin of Fayette
and Mr. Comings of Lorain.
Speaker Reynolds appointed Mr.
Smith of Delaware, Mr. Manchester of
Mahoning', Mr. Hendley of Hamilton,
Mr, Wells of Wayne, Mr. Love of Eric
and Mr. Garrison of Brown a special
committee to go to Brunswick Thurs
day, to attend the funeral of Mr. Clem
ent. He died Monday of pneumonia.
The house and senate both adjourned
at 10:20 a. m., and members of the
two branches went In a body to the
lodgings, where Mr. Clement died to
escort the remains to the depot. There
were no services. The deceased mem
ber was taken to his home.
A resolution was adopted by the
house which means that there shall
be no postponement of the day of ad
journment, unless there shall be an
extraordinary amount of filibustering
resorted to this week. It Is claimed
the fillbusterers, who want to "bust"
the resolution to adjourn next Mon
day, favored adjournment on account
of the death of Mr. Clement until after
the funeral Thursday. The members
of the house were not disposed to take
so long a stride toward indefinitely
postponing the day of adjournment, so
that the attempt was not made to ad
journ over until the funeral of Mr.
The "hurry up" resolution was Intro
duced by Mr. Swain. It rescinds a
former resolution fixing the hours of
the session, and provides that the
house shall convene at 9 a. m., instead
of 10; at 1:30 p. m., Instead of 2:30,
after the noon recess, and at 7:30 p.
m. The resolution was adopted under
a suspension of the rules.
The authorship of the resolution to
postpone, .the final' adjournment was
attributed to Mr. Griffin. But Mr.
Griffin denied that he had such a reso
lution drafted. Mr. Griffln had Mr.
Swain's resolution changed so as to
leave the sessions of the house Satur
day hereafter to be determined so that
the house might transact business
afternoon and night, too, If necessary,
so that Mr. Griffin seems to be trim
ming his sails to put Into port next
The centennial proposition seems to
be very much in doubt. Governor
Nash is unyielding in his opposition to
expending more than $500,000 on the
centennial celebration. All kinds of
speculation as to the ultimate action
of the legislature may be heard.
Senator Howard's bill to increase the
allowance from $35 to $50 for the
burial of Indigent soldiers, which was
defeated by the house some time ago,
but upon reconsideration was restored
to the calendar, came up in its order
Tuesday afternoon, and was amended
and passed. The amendment of most
consequence was to extend the pres
ent law to soldiers of all wars.
A bill by Rankin of CiaTk, providing
that unincorporated banks shall be
taxed1 the same as national and Incor
porated banks, was passed in the
Senate bills passed in the house
were: To provide for the organization

Sir Godfrey Lagden, the British res
ident commissioner of Basutoland, has
left Mazeru for the border. The events
in the southeast portion of the Free
State have caused the Eighth division,
which had been ordered to Fourteen
Streams, to be diverted to Sprlngfon
teln. Mysterious movements of troops at
Bloemfonteln are proceeding. The
newspaper correspondents are not al
lowed to telegraph their destinations,
and the presumption is that Lord Rob
erts is making dispositions to cut oil'
the raiding Boer forces when they try
to withdraw northward from the pur
suing British columns.
The appearance of the Boors in the
occupied country has caused a revival
of the warlike feeling among the Free
Staters of the Fauresmith and Phillp
polis districts. The Federal agents

ADVERSE TO MR. CLARK
Committee Unanimously Declare Sen
ator's Seat Vacant.
SENATE WILL VOTE ON QUAY CASE.
By Unanimous Consent, the Vote on
Seating the Gentleman From
Pennsylvania Will Bo
Taken April 2i.
Washington, April 10. The senate
committee on privileges and elections
decided by a unanimous vote to rec
ommend the adoption of a resolution
declaring that Hon. W. A. Clark of
Montana Is not entitled to occupy his
seat as a senator from Montana.
The decision was reached after two
hours' sitting, at which all the mem
bers of the committee were present
except one. The absentee was Senator
Caffery of Louisiana, and he wired his
vote In opposition to Mr. Clark. Tho
ballot was not taken until all the mem
bers present had expressed themselves
upon the question, some of them
speaking at some length and all ex
pressing different shades of opinion.
Senator Harris of Kansas indicated
leaning toward leniency for Mr. Clark.
He did not express any doubt that
there had been a lavish expenditure
of money In Mr. Clark's behalf, and
while not condoning this course, ho
spoke in terms of strong condemnation
of the tactics pursued by some of his
(Clark's) opponents, referring espe
cially to Congressman Campbell and
former State Senator Whiteside. He
said that whatever Mr. Clark's offenses
were, they were but little worse than
the methods pursued by Campbell and
Whiteside In their efforts to expose
the senator, and he insisted that If the
report was to be antagonistic to Mr.
Clarke, It should at the same time re
late In full detail the course pursued
by the two principal witnesses against
Senator Pottus practically agreed
with Mr. Harris. The two senators
also expressed some doubt as to the
justification of the conclusion drawn
by a majority of the committee, that
Senator Clark's candidacy for the sen
ate began in August, 1898, when ho
returned to Butte from New York. The
effect of this conclusion was to charge
up the entire $133,000, which Senator
Clark confessed to having expended,
to his campaign for the senate, while
the contention was made in Senator
Clark's behalf that he had not become
a candidate until after the state elec
tion, thus eliminating from thecara
palgn in his individual behalf tho
amount spent In the general contest.
Senator McComas was among the sen
ators who expiessed himself as con
vinced that the senatorial seat was
In view from the beginning. Mr. Mc
Comas, however, united with other
senators in condemning the methods
pursued in prosecuting the case.
Senator Clark was at the capitol
when the announcement of the action
of tho committee was made known.
He was surprised at the result, but
refused to make a statement until
after consultation with his friends and
Ex-Senator Fan!' npr. counsel for
Mr. Clark, was sum noned to the cap
itol immediately after the verdict of
the committee was announced, and had
a long consultation with his client
over the situation.

missioner general of the Paris exnosl-
tlon; and also to state the salaries of
all employes of tho commission. Mr.
Jones stated that In the report already
filed with the senate the detailed items
of expenses and salaries were not In
cluded in accordance with tho law.
