The U. S. Supreme Court
Decides an important
WVashington, Dec. 3.-Opinions
were rendered in the Uuitcd
States supreme court yesterday
in the last two of the insular test
cases. One of them was that
knownas the Fourteen diamond
ring case, involving the Ilartion
ship of the United States to the
Philippine Islands from a tariff
point of view and the othei. what
is known.as the Dooley case No.
2, involving the constitutionality
of the collection of duty on goods
shipped from New York to Porto
Rico. In the former case the
court, through Justice Fuller,
held that the diamond rings
brought .in from the Philippines,
and over which the case arose
should h.lave been exempt from
duty under the Paris ltreaty, as
that treaty made the Philippines
The decision in the Philippines
case flllowed closely that of the
first Porto Rican case of last
In the second Dooley case, it
was held that the duty collected
on goods carried from New York
to Porto Rico was. permissible,
but that it was in reality a tax
for the benetit of the Porto Rican
themselves rather than an export
duty as was claimed by the mer
chants who antagonized the gov
ierninent in the case.

Both Houses Meet, Organize
and Adjourn_ Until
Washington, D.C. Dec. 8.-The
opening of the Fifty-seventh Con
gress was not greatly different
from other opeuings of recent
years.. .. ... .
Throngs of people filled the
Capitol, all anxious to get gallery
seats, but as it is the custom for
congressional families to occupy
the galleries on opening day the
general public realyhad little op
portunity to see.
As usual on such occasions,the
House was the center of interest.
Many changes had been made in
the floor .arrangement and furni
ture, made necessary by the ap
pcrtiornment act increasing the
membership of the body by 29.
The hall has been slightly in
creased in size, a new ventilating
system has been put in and 400
new mahogany desks and as
many new chairs had supple
mented the shabby furniture
which the last Congress left.
Soon after the drawing of
seats comsmenced the pages
brought in the customary floral
compliments, and the Republi
can side wa; transformed into a
sort of flower show. Few flowers
appeared on the Democratic side
which caused acynicin the press
gallery toremark that"God hates
