Washington, D. C, March 4. In
auguratlon day preparations were carried
out successfully. The division in cbargs
of Gen. Gibson of the regular army was
in liae by 11 o'clock, and began the march
to the cipitol The senate doors were
thrown open at 1 1 . At 12
entered, escorted by Senator Corkrell;
then President-elect Harrison, escorted
by Senator Hoar and Vice President-elect
Morton, escorted by Senator Allison. All
stoad while Presiding Officer Ingalls ad
ministered the oath to Vice President
Morton, who called the senate to order in
extra session, and after prayer, addressed
the senate. The inauguration of
took place on the portico of the capitol,
whither he was driven in company with
President Cleveland. The oath was ad
ministered by Chief Justice Fuller, Mrs.
Harrison, Mrs. Cleveland and the mem
bers of the family of the president-elect
being upon the platform.
President Harrison at once commenced
the delivery of his

The cabinet as officially announced
will be composed of:
Secretary of State James O. Blaine,
Secretary of tbe Treasury William
Windom, of Minnesota.
Secretary, of War Redfleld Proctor, of
v erm ont.
Secretary of the Navy Benjamin F.
Tracy, of New York.
Secretary of tbe Ioterior John W.
Noble, of Missouri.
Postmaster General John Wana
maker, of Pennsylvania.
Attorney General W. n. H. Miller, of
Secretary of Agriculture Jeremiah
Rusk, of Wisconsin.
If the territories had a right to admis
sion, the bouse would have done far bet
ter to let each stand on its own merits,
but instead tbe "omnibus" plan was
adoptad and tbe senate was allowed to
exclude New Mexico on account of its
politics. On the civil war basis of poli
tics, the republicans count 182 electoral
votes as surely republican, concede 152
to the democrats, and elass 66 as doubt
ful. To the 182 republican votes tbey add
7 for north and south Dakota, making
189. to which tbevalso expect to add 6 for
Washiiffeton and Montana, making 195.80
that either Indiana or New York would
give them a majority. North and south
Dakota are as safely republican at present
as Vermont is. They will not change
before Illinois chances and revolution
izes politics tn tbe northwest. Montana
and Washington are debatable close
states, with the chances in favor of tbe
republicans and tbe chances are thus
that tbe republicans will have 13 more
electoral votes in 1893 than their "sure
state" votes in 1 98S. All of which means
that the democrats must make the fight
in me west ana bold jNew York, New
Jersey and Connecticut. The Harrison
administration will not allow the south
to divide. The next presidential cam
paign must he a western fight. The 22
votes of Illinois must be taken out of tbe
republican column St. Louis Republic.
Yes, tbe Republic is right. The next
presidential battle ground will be in the
west and the candidate should be a west
ern man. The signs ot tbe times seem to
indicate that Illinois has gone republican
for the last time, and that in 1692 she
will swing into the democratic line.
A Farmer dwindled.
About two years ago a farmer named
Andrew Burg, of Canoe Creek, obtained
the right for a certain territory for a pat
ent hay fork, closing the contract with
parties from Champaign, 111., and signing
as he supposed a contract, but it after
ward tnrned out that be bad put his sig
nature to a promissory note for f 250,
which in course 'of time came into posses
sion of E. H. Guyer, of this city.
The farmer meanwhile learned that
the patent was fraudulent and
worthless and that he was legally
responsible to Mr. Guyer for the payment
of the amount of the note. The latter
entered suit for judgment, secured it and
Mr. Burg being at that time unable to
meet the claim, gave a chattel mortgage
to Mr. Uuyer and a few days ago he paid
over the $250. Ag'ents having patent
rights to sell had better keep clear of that
farmer in the future.

Washington City, March 4. Senator
Riddloberger'g term ia in tbe uppor house of
congress practically wound up last uigbt
fifteen or sixteen hours earlier than it would
under ordinary circuintance in a very ex
traordinary manner. When tbe senate met
at 8 p. m. he arose and moved tbat the senate
go into executive session. Tbe motion was
lost, and then tbe senator made himself ex
ceedingly troublesome by interrupting nearly
every senator who was recognized by tbe
chair. Tbe presiding officer finally told him
tbat he would not again be recognized, but
he continued bis interruptions and demanded
recognition, bis demands being ignored.
Shortly before 9 o'clock be arose and an
nounced tbat he had telegraphed his resigna
tion to the governor of Virginia, because he
found that be bad uo recognition in tbe sen
ate. He was awaiting an answer to bis dis
patch and be hoped it would come soon and
relieve him from the embarrassment of his
position, lie then sat down, but iu a few
mlnutvs he again arose and demanded recog
nition. The cbair refused to recognize him
and told him to sit down, lie continued to
address the chair aud Honator Ingalls in
structed the sergoant-at-arms to arrest him if
he refused to he seated. Sergoant-at-Arms
Canaday started around tbe rear of tbe cham
ber, but before ho reached tbe seat of Riddle
berger Teller and others immediately around
him had persuaded tbe senator from Virginia
to sit down.
Tbe sergeant at-arma lingered altout, bow
ever, and when, a few minutes later, Kiddle
berger arose and once more addressed the
chair, be was placed under arrest Canaday
tried to persuade him to leave the chamber,
and when he refused the sargeaut-at-arms,
who is a muscular man, caught bold of his
coat and pulled him toward the clonic room.
Tbe senator caught hold of bis chair for siij
port, and the assistant of the sergeant- b
arms, Capt. May, caught bis arm, and to
gether tbe two otticers of tbe senate dragged
him out of the chamber into the cloak room.
There was a slight demonstration of applause
In the gallery, but it ceased very quickly.
When tbe two officers got Riddleberger
safely in tbe cloak room they placed him in a
cbair, and then tbey mounted guard over
him to prevent him returning to - tbe floor.
An effort was made to persuade him to leave
the building, but as he refused, it was thought
best not to drag him through tbe corridors,
which were tlironged with visitors.
Tbe scene attending the amsst of Riddle
berger was most extraordinary aud has no
parallel in tbe history of tbe senate. Riddle
berger was in a state of gross intoxication
and was not responsible for bis actions. Tbe
presiding officer exercued a great deal of
patience and his final action a i unavoid

Wbn tbe slight applause in the galleries,
which greeted the expulsion of Riddleberger,

again. Tbe business of the senate was theu

WHAT CONGRESS HAS ACCOMPLISHED
And Also Some Measures That Oot I ft
The Veto Record.
Washington CtTT, March 4. The Fiftieth
congress will be noted in history for four
things: First, the admission into tbe Union
ot four new states North Dakota, South Da
kota, Montana and Washington ; second, for
the tariff discussion which consumed so much
time in both house and senate; third, for the
creation of a new executive department, and,
fourth, for tbe amount of filibustering that
took place in tbe bouse.
Undoubtedly the most important piece of
business congress disposed of was the admis
sion of four new states. This action would
have been almost an impossibility before the
election which settled the question of tbe
presidency. It was a measure of great im
portance to tbe Union, adding to the strength
of tbe general government and relieving it
of a great deal of responsibility. It is of im
portance to the Republican party also, as
suring it a good working majority in the
The tariff discussion consumed a great deal
of tbe time of house and senate, and although
no legislation resulted to reduce tbe revenue
and simplify its collection, tbe debate served
to outline with distinctness tbe policy of
either party in the election contest, and pro
bably opened tbe way to legislation in tbe
Tbe abuse of the rules of tbe bouse by tbe
minority during the second session has been
among tbe most striking features of tbe busi
ness of tbat body, it having been clearly
demonstrated that under the present rules s
very small minority can successfully stop
business for any length of time or force the
majority to let the minority have Its way.
By this means the Pacific railway funding bill
and tbe Cowles tobacco tax repeal bill were
defeated. It is probable that the Fifty-first
congress will make a considerable cbange in
Tbe business placed before congress for
consideration in the last two years has
greatly exceeded in the aggregate that of any
previous congress. This is largely due to the
increase of measures for private relief, a fact
which emphasizes the necessity so often ad
mitted of providing some tribunal for the
arbitration of tbe claims against the govern
ment, which are now brought to congress
lor adjudication. There were introduced in
the senate in tbe Fiftieth congress, S.PW bills,
and 143 joint resolutions, and 2,710 reports
were made from committees. In the house
there were 12,059 bills, 207 joint resolutions
and 4,154 reports. In tbe Forty-ninth con
gress there were introduced 8,358 senate bills,
11,260 house bills, 118 senate joint resolutions,
1,266 bouse joint resolutions, and there were
received from senate committees 1,990, and
from house committee 4,181 reports.
Of the bills and joint resolutions in the
present congress, not one in twenty passed
tbe house, and not one in thirty passed both
houses and went to tbe president for his
Of tbe bills tbat became laws at tbe first
session of tbe present congress the following
are tbe most important: Establishing a de
partment of labor; giving. $100 bounty to
soldiers who were enrolled or enlisted for
three years prior to July 23, 18C1, aud who
were subsequently honorably discharged
from tbe service; remitting duties paid on
imported breeding animals and admitting
ire of duty those imported in the future; in
creasing pensions for utter deafness to ISO a
month; extending the eight-hour law to let-
ter-ran i'.ts; gnmgro Slate soldiers home
$100 a year for each inmate received who
would be entitled to admission to the na
tional home; re Irictiug Chinese immigra
tion, and provid ng boards of arbitration for '
Among the measures that have passed con
gress at tbe sens: on just closing, and which
have received tbi signature of the president
are the following: providing that letters
bearing a special delivery stamp shall be de
livered whet her ' hey bear the regular postage
or not; increasing the maximum amount of
international money orders from $50 to $100;
creating an executive department of agricul
ture; increasing tbe pension of those who
have lost both he nds to $100 a month; for the
admission of four territories; appropriating
$250,000 to ena le the president to protect
the interests of tlie United States in Panama;
strengthening the inter-state commerce law.
In tbe first sew ion of the Fiftieth congress,
the president returned without his approval
123 bills. Of thue 104 were pension bills,
twelve were elnii ts, and six wore for public
buildings. In the second session twenty
seven veto messa jfee were received from the
president. Of these twenty-one were pen
sion vetoes, four were relief bills and the
other bills disapt roved by the president were
the direct tax bill and tbe bill to quiot title ot
settlers on the D Moines river lands.
The senate, not withstanding the amount ol
time occupied b.v the tariff discussion, was
more fortunate t ban the house, and managed
to dispose of most of tbe business sent over
from that body.
Among tbe bills favorably reported from
the house comm ttees which wore not acted
upon at either -saion of congress were the
following: To adjust accounts of labor under
the eifht-hnur la : to pension female nurses:
to pensiou prisoners of war; to authorize tht
purchase of forei jn built ships by citizens ot
the United State; toorganiseanavalroserve;
regulating the manufacture and sale of com
pound lard; to establish a pure food division
in the department of agriculture; a river and
harbor bill; to p -o vide for the meeting ot
congress Dec. SI ; to prohibit polygamy by
constitutional an endment; to prohibit aliens
acquiring lands i 3 tbe United States; to pre
vent competition between free labor indus
tries and convict labor.
There were received from the president
during the session 483 messages representing
nearly 5(H) nominations. Of these nomina
tions 253 were ending last night Of tbi
number 212 were nominations of postmasters
and six were pro notions in the navy, and tht
others were for various o Dices.
HARD WORKING STATESMEN.
They Stay I'p All Night and Do Buslnese
on Sunday Also.
Washington Oitt, March 4. It was 3:5C
o'clock Katurduy uiorniug when tLe senate,
having passed t ie deficiency bill, received
tbe Indian appropriation bill and ordered it
printed, had th conference report on the
sundry civil bill read, allowed the latter tc
go over without action and adjourned until
11 a. ui. At thai, hour tbe members assem
bled again and ifter sending tbe deficiency
and sundry civil bills to conference commit
tee agreed to conference report on the port
office appropriation and then dist ussed tbf
Indian appropriation and passed the same
with amendment. The conference report on
tbe naval bill was presented next and agreed
to, and recess tali en to 8 p. m. At the evening
session the president sent in a veto of tbe
direct tax bill an 1 it was passed over tbe veto
45 to ft tbe nxative votes being Blair,

Pasco, Reagan, raulsburry and Vest. Con

protect the Alaska salmon fisheries. Blaii
tried to got up the prohibition amendment tc
the constitution itnd was defeated S3 to 13.
The Fourth of July claims bill was passed,
and at an early hour yesterday morn
ing the senate went into secret session.
The disagreement on the sundry civil bill it
on the matter of steam or hand presses in the
bureau ot' engrat Lng and printing, the house
insisting on a in isure that will abolish steam
presses. When vbe senate met again in open
session at 2 a m. adjournment was taken to
2 p.m. yesterday.
At the hour mentioned above tbe senate
met again, but immediately took recess to t
p. m. , and at that, hour tbe Indian appro
priation bill was finally agreed to on con
ference report. Riddleberger then moved ao
executive session aud the motion way de
feated. He theu kept up interruption ot
senators until he was notified tbat be would
not be recognised again. Shortly afterward
he announced tht t be had sent his resigna
tion to the govanor of Virginia, and still
later began again to interrupt proceedings,
and kept it up until be was ordered to be re
moved which was done, and the senate pro
ceeded to businest, and a number of Sunday
rest petitions were presented, which in view
of congress being at work on tbat day
created a good eeal of mirth. At 10:45 re
cess was taken to midnight
At midnight the senate reassembled, and
forty minute la r tbe deficiency bill, with
tbe appropriation for the French spoliation
claims eliminate 1, the senate receding on
that point, was ugreed to on conference re
port. An executive session was then held.
In tbe bouse Saturday tbe conference re
port on the amondmenta to the inter-state
law was agreed t x Tbe bouse receded from
iutauk-car amendment and ou that
conferring on state courts con
current jurisdiction with United States
courts on m er-state commerce cases.
Disagreements on the deficiency and
sundry civil bills kept those two meas
ures before both aouws, the principal trouble
with tbe latter U ing tbe steam press clause
and that giving the widow of Chief Justice
Waite tbe balance of one year's salary. In
the meantime tho salmon fishing disagree
ment was fixed up and tbe bill passed, tbe
house gaining i a point practically in the
matter of sending war Vessels into Behrings
1 to seize vessel illegally taking suaL A
recess was taken to 6 p. m., and at that hour
a report on the land forfeiture bill was the
cause of nlibustej ing which practically killed
progress until 1 .5 ) yesterday morning, when
recess was taken to 2 p. m.
Upon renusumtmng, the senate bill increas
ing the limit of c t of tbe public building
at Detroit to l,.i00,000 was passed, aud an
other disagreeing report on the deficiency
Diu was received and laid aside temnorarilv.
Tbe conference report on . the Indian appro
priation bill war next agreed to and an at
tempt being made to secure insistence on tbe
house view of tiw deficiency bill an objection
was made and S iringer filibustered until he
forced a reces to 8 p. in.
There was more filibustering at the even
ing session, tbe opponents of payment of tbe
French spoliatioa claims adopting obstruc
tive tactics to pn-vent a vote on a motion to
recede on tbat print in tbe deficiency bill,
which was returned to conference, and theu
filibustering was begun against the railway
land forfeiture t ill and the California elec
Resolutions were agreed to declaring that
the house protesi s against the subordinate
place assigned by the senate to the house in
tbe Inaugural ce.-emonies and declaring that
in all such cases the bouse should take an
equal position with tbe senate. Tbe confer
ence report on tie sundry civil bill was then
agreed to, the senate receding from its
amendments, aDd at 2:30 a. m. the house
took recess to 9:55.
THE DIRECT TAX VETO.
Reasons Given iy the Prenident for Refus
ing t Sign the BUI.
Washitiuto City, March 4. Tbe presi
dent's veto of th direct tax bill declares that
the appropriation is not a constitutional
measure. Tbe direct tax was lawfully laid
and collected, an 1 its exaction created no
debt against th government, consequently
the bill provides for the payment of no debt
Neither does the appropriation have a rela
tion to tbe common defense, as that was
what tbe money was raised and expended
for; nor can i: be properly put upon the
ground of coram n welfare, as it is a sheer,
bald gratuity end the foregoing complete
the purposes lor which money may be consti
tutionally appro mated.
But even if it were constitutional, tbe
president says, b) can see no reason for the
appropriation. To argue that because all
tbe tax levied wi not paid that which was
paid should be leturned would be just as
g tod in the case it any tax, for complete col
lection is a prablem that baa never been
solved there ats always delinquents. Yet
failure to coueot tbe wnoid tax bas never been
urged before as a reason for returning the
collected iortiou. Neither can he see any
reason for the reiiiibursnieut iu tbe fact that
the tax was only paid by the loyal states, the
government first being unable and later for
very valid reasons declining to enforce its
collection in the insurrectionary states.
Many federal taxi were not -collected in
tbose states, and if non payment Is to be used
as an argument why taxes should be re
funded where they were paid it is equally
good for a reimbursement of the income and
internal revenue taxes.
He closes wilh the statement tbat he be
lieves the people of the loyal states paid this
direct tax as tbey bore tbe other burdens of
the war, and tbat tbey are content; that the
bill is. unfair and unjust in operation; that
the bill is unconstitutional and without war
rant and there is no adequate reason In right
or equity for the. return of tbe tax; tbat the
biu is one or the baneful effects of a surplus
iu the bvasury, for the reduction of which a
better plan can lie d;visid one that, instead
of creat ing injn-.ii.-w and inequality, promotes
justi-e and equality by leaving in the hands
of the people and for their use the money not
needed by the government to pay the debt
and provide for the common defense and
general welfare of tbe United States."
