Washixgtox, March 4. The Fifty-third
congress has passed oat of existence. As
the hands of the clock pointed to neon
today tha gavels in cither house came
down with a resounding thwack on the
respective presiding officers' desks and
something ovur X Ftancsmen heaved a
heavy sigh of relief and congratulated
themselves that it was all over. There
were a number of goodbyes said, a few
nu revoirs, and in a short time silence
had possession of the two chambers that
since last December had rung with the
eloquence of senator and representative.
Tbe close of the session was like all other
closes full of hurried conference, of com
promise and adjustment of differences on
the bills that had to pass the nppropria
4. Were Awake in the Early Morn.
It was ' a. ni. yesterday before the two
houses that had met Saturday concluded
that a recess would not hurt business, but
rather, probably, enable the conference
committees to make better progress, and
so it came about that the congress of tho
United States was in open session and
transacting business at 2 a. ni. on Sun
day. But to the statesmen it was not
Sunday. Tho session of congress was
that of Saturday March 2, continued.
With this fiction it is supposed some of
the gentlemen who would bo horror
struck at tho hie of profaning tho "Sab
bath" eased their consciences and got in
their work for their constituents, when
teat ore of the Recent Session.
a review of tho work of this last session
of tho Fifty-third con truss must necessar
ily deal mora with what was attempted to
bo done than that which was accom
plished. Tho term has been particularly
marked by the inability of the senate and
the house to ngreo tipon any of tho most
important prjblems pro-enU-d by them.
Congress ni-Jt on the 4i,h of December
last with vno imperativu and perennial
task, to frame and mint the various ap
propriation bill Next in inin-irtanee
was tho financial question, for which no
deflnito plan of settlement beyond many
free sliver bills and various individual
schemes were then in view. Several im
portant bills came over as a heritago
from tho preceding session. Foremost
among them were, in tho bouse, the Xion
'TnpTM wnM bill, tho nllrond pooling bill
and the bill for the settlement of the in
debtedness of tho Union Pacific railroads.
Some of the Itllls That Failed.
Tho Nicaragua can il project has not
been able to securo a hearing in the house,
although it passed the sonata Tho pool
ing bill waspassdby tho house early in
the session, but the senate raf used to eon
eider it. Strong opposition to the Keilly
bill was developed in the house and after
a very sharp debato it was recommitted
to tho committee without instructions.
Then there were several legacies from the
first session tho bankruptcy bill, the
anti-option bill, the "pop-gun" tariff bills
to place sugar, coal, iron and barbed wire
on tho free list, are the most important
which arc left over yet.
FIGHT OVER THE FINANCES.
Eastcd All ltironcli the Srwilnn and Kndtd
In Nothing Itcing llone-
Tho most interest in 3 chapter of tho
hbtory of tho session is mado by tho
attempt at financial legislation in both
houses. These are too well known to re
quire recapitulation. No financial legis
lation has yet resulted from the host of
bills Introduced during the session with
more or less weight of authority behind
them. The principal class of legislation
accomplished by the short session was
that making appropriations for tho sup
port 01 tne govern mvnt. ot a little gen
eral legislation was incorp irnted into the
appropriation bills. Those liillsin theordor
in which they were pissed liv thj house
were: For tie military academy (West

Columbia, postal, agricultural, Indian,
sundry civil, legislative, executive and
Judicial, navy, and general deficiency.
When tho lisst week of congress began
the house h.ul patscd all except the gen
eral deficiency and the senate hail the last
four yet to consider. The pension bill, as
enacted, contained provisions that pen
sions shall not bo paid to non-resi'.Ionts
who are not citizens of the United States,
except for actual disabilities incurred in
tho nTvire, directing examining surgeons
to state the ratings to which they think
tbe applicants are entitled, and Cxing the
lowest rate of pension at rt a month. The
diplomatic and consular bill increased the
salaries of several foreign representatives,
but tho senate amendment for a Hawaiian
table was defeated by tho house.

clenched teeth of Harry Hayward, on

weeks the trial has bjen In progress. Ho
flushed crimson as ho said them, and
though they wcro not spoken loudly,
they wore audible at the reporters' tablo

a car for the city at the junction on Low

tbe murder. As the car reached Lmr

boulevard, he saw a man coming out on
to tho avenue. Ho supposed the man
wanted to catch the car and - called the
conductor's attention to tho fact. Tho
conductor stopiied the car, whereupon the

'Are yon able to identify that man?'
asked Mr. Hall.
"I believe 1 am." was the answer.
"It was Harry Hayward."
"You are a liar," exclaimed Harry, as
the blood mounted his temples. He was
quick to see the tremendous Importance
to hiiu of this evidence. In the li.-st
place this evidence fitted in exactly with
the evidence of Liveryman Wilson that
he had seen Harry Hayward, driving out
Kenward boulevard with Miss Ging that
night shortly after 7:10. If Harry had
so driven and had then stopped tho buggy.

Griudall's Kviflence Discredited.
The evidence of Grindall, tho man who
claims to have seen the "third man" get
into the bug.ry with Miss Ging, was fur
ther discredited by the evidence of two
witnesses who had been at or near tho
spot and saw nothing of Grindall or tho
occurrence ho described. U. A. McAr

another part of Harry's evidence by
swearing that ho saw him walking up

careful nursing Mr. Dyer may ba fit to
come into court on Monday morning.
Sensation in CunrU
There was a sensational sceno In cinrt
after the adjournment until Monday had
been ordered. It was between Harry and
his brother Adry. Harry was violently
angry at Adry und swore at him, saying,
"You , I may hang, but before I quit,
I will send you to telill water. I know
enough about you to give you twenty
four years there and I'll do it, too, before
I quit. I am on earth yet. Hero," he
added, turning to Erwin, "I want to swear

"So, you don't," said F-rwin, striving to
quit his client.
"I don't wish you any harm," said
Adry. "l"d rather see you go out of this
court a free man," and the brother went
away with his deputy. Harry then de
