Wasiiimitox, May 20. The president
pro teni. laid la-fore "the m-natc resolutions
of the city of Cliicii!(o praying for the pan
nage of the Jiouse hill to place the name of
Gen. Jan. Shields upon the retired list of
the anny, with the rank of brigadier gener
al. Laid on the table.
Senator Thunnan, from the judiciary
committee, to w hich was recommitted the
house bill to provide for the admission to
the bur of the miprcme court of the United
States of any woman w ho has been a mem
ber of the bur in the highest court of any
state or territory for a period of three years,
reMited it back with the amendment of
Senator Sargent, providing that no person
shall be refused admission to the bur in any
United States court on account of sex. Sen
ator Thurniaii said he had been directed by
the committee to report as they had report
ed before. There was no law prohibiting a
court from admitting women to the bar,
and therefore there was no necessity for this
legislotion. At t some iliscussion the bill
was placed on the calendar, with the ad
Bills wen- introduced and referred:
By Senator Christancy. by request To
reorganize a court of claims "and extend its
jurisdiction, taking all claims from before
congress ami the departments for adjudica
tion. By S.-nator Sargent To regulate immi
gration. Senator Cockrell moved to take up the
house bill to place the name of Gen. Jas,
Shields on the retired list of the army, with
th.- rank of brigadi-r-geiu-ral. but" after
some discussion he withdrew the motion
and gave notice that he would renew it
later in the day, after Senator MorriU,
chairman of the finance committee, sjioke
Senator Cockrcll's motion to take up the
bill authorizinir the president to phiLe the
name of (leu. Shields on the retired list of
the army, was agreed to: yeas, ;!:; nays, 20.
Senator Sargent said that now, as the
bill was before the senate, he hoped the
senator who stood sponsor for it would en
lighten tin- .senate as to any pii cedents for

Iliniyar wins. Mr. Lorilliird will pay fin,,

Mr. Lorillard is willing to make the race u
sweepstakes, so as to let Mr, George I.oril

Major Thomas consents. It is to be hoped
that the latter will consent to make the
match. The offer is certainly a liberal one,
ami if lliniyarcan beat Spartan, the Major
and bis friends can win a big stake. Such
a raee on the Fourth of July w ill attract a
