The House Again Hold Two Sessions
in One Day Weaver as Alliance Candi
date for President.
Washington-City. Feb. 2. The debato
yesterday io the house was pretty lively
from be ginning to end. but business was
puliel forward with considerable rapid
ity notwithstanding the frequent squab
bles. The first skirmish was over a spe
cial order to come to a vote on the ship
jiiu' subsidy. McMillin and Mills both
tippled the order, and said it was simply
in line with the policy of the majority.
The new rules had been adopted for four
reasons: To pass the elections bill, the
direct tax bill, the tariff bill, and the
shipping Kubidy. Three of these had
been passed, ami now the gag was to be
put on to pass the fourth. McKinley said
that the practice of "making special orders
had been in vogue since the Forty-sixth
congress; then it had been done in viola
tion of the rules, and now the rules pro
vided for that method.
The Verdict of November.
The majority were responsible for public
legislation, and it should be permitted to
put its purpose into public law ti be
tried only before the great tribunal of the
American people. "To that tribunal we
omlidently commit the work of the l ifty
lirst congress. If the gentlemen on the
other side imagine that the verdict of last
November was based on the public legisla
tion of the Fifty-hrst congress they are
veiy much mistaken and in error. I don't
believe that there is a gentleman who has
studied the causes that led to the verdict
in November who can conscientiously de
clare that it was based on thewori of
' What was it?" queried the Democrats.
McKinley The majority on the tloor
having only a tew days derisive laugh

being here, with our seats well fillet'., we
propose to go on and complete the work
ul the Fil'ty-firt congress, no matter what
t'M ruction may be put in our waj by
gentlemen on that, side of the chamber.
I u ton Runs Afoul of liut W-rworl h.
The order having been adopted, am: the
house having gone into committee on the
agricultural appropriation, Funstoi. of
Kansas, who hud charge of the bill.got into
a controversy with Dutterworth. The letter
bavins made a remark which irritated 1 'un
ston, Funston made an attack upon him,
in which he alluded to the office which -iut-tcrworth
occupies in the World's fair
commission, and said that if that geutle
man, whose name was associated with the
anti-option bill, had taken as muchiime
to forwarding that measure as he ha 1 to
drawing his salary as secretary of the
World's fair, the measure would now have
U'eu passed a measure which would bring
great relief to the agricultural interes-.s.
"JIurled" the Insinuation Back.
Butterworth, in reply.charged Funston,
as chairman of the committee on agricul
ture, with neglecting the interests of the
farmers. The gentleman, he said, was
actively concerned about the anti-option
bill. Haifa million farmers bad asked
the gentleman over and over again, as
chairman of the committee, to get up and
move the consideration of the measure.
Had he done it? Cries of "No, no!" Not
at all. He had not moved in that direc
tion, but had stood trembling like an as
pen leaf under the favor of the speaker.
(Great laughter and loud applause on the
Democratic side. He Butterwoith had
at least the courage of his convictions.
Funston denied that he had failed t do
his duty in regard to the option bilL
Hatch Returns Thanks.
Hatch of Missouri, after deploring the
condition of the farmers of the country,
made a speech in favor of free coicage
and a reduction of taxation. He ;ilso
touched upon the option bill and critic.sed
the majority, and especially the chairraan
of the committee of agriculture, for not
acting upon the question. The gentleman
from Ohio McKinley had said that there
were but a few more hours of this con
gress. Thank God for it. Democratic
Spinola Lay it on, brother. Latgh
ter. Hatch "We will all join in the Doiology
next Wednesday. Laughter,
Hatch, continuing, said that the req lest
of the farmers for the passage of the op
tion bill should be acceded to before they
demand and no longer plead.
Cannon You can pass it next session.
Hatch 'And we will pass it next session,
and we will pass every other bill that is
constitutional and is demanded by the peo
ple of the country. Democratic applause.
Great Times at the Night Session.
When the house met at night it was
manifest that congress was drawing to a
close. Every member who addressed the
chair was laughed at, cheered and ap
plauded by bis colleagues, irrespective of
party lines. The disorder was great and
incessant, and the chair was utterly una
ble to prevent it. Again and again he ap
pealed to members to preserve order, bat
his appeals vere unavailing. As the hour
grew later be proceedings became mora,
noisy and it was with extreme difficulty
that the chairman preserved a semblance

last act of the retiring president. Miss
Willard, was the introduction of Mrs.
May Wright Sewall, the new president,

Washington city, Feb. 2.-Rowell,
from the committee on elections, submit
ted to the house yesterday the report in
the contested election case of Kernaghan
vs. Hooker, of the Seventh congressional
district of Mississippi. The report says
that the evidence shows a state of affair
in the district that can neither be excused
nor palliated; that taking all the evidence
together the committee is satisfied that
frauds sufficient to invalidate the election
were committed, but that the number of
fraudulent votes actually proved Wing
insufficient to overcome the majority re
turned, it recommends that Kernaghan
be permitted to retain his seat.

vis, Alliance congressman-elect from Kan
sas, says that the Alliance will have a

Alliance, for vice president are spoken f
as the ticket. No one can say what w.Il
be the result. It may throw the election
into the house.
FRENCH ANTI-GERMAN SPLEEN.
Kxliibiteil on the Occasion of Km press
Frederick's Yii.it to Paris.
IX)MON, Feb. 20. The sentiment
among Parisian artists against represen
tation at the Berlin Art exhibition is
growing more bitter, and Detaille and
Botinat are almost subjected to a boycott.
M. Bonnat has quoted the incident of the
conferring of the Cross of the legion of
Honor on Heir Uhde, tile German painter,
as a precedent of courtesy toward the
Berlin exhibition. To this his critics re
ply that the cross was awarded for pict
ures exhibited in Paris and not in Berlin.
Wrath of the "League of Tatriots."
The organization known as the League
of Patriots has violently denounced the
visit of Empress Frederick of Germany to
the palace of Versailles on Monday last.
The League has decided to hold daily
meetings of protest until the imperial vis
itor leaves the city. It is known here that
in Berlin it was expected that President
Carnot would call upon Empress Freder
ick, but after a special cabinet meeting
had been held and the question had been
fully discussed, it was decided that, as
Empress Frederick was traveling incog
nito, the French government could com
promise the matter by sending the chief
of President Carnot's military household.
Gen. Brugere, and M. Ribot, the minister
of foreign affairs, to call upon the ex
empress. , It Worried the Cabinet.
This was accordingly done, Gen. Bru
gere and M. Ribot calling at the German
embassy and inscribing their name in the
i isitors' book. This question of etiquette
was undoubtedly the cause of much anx
iety and worry to the members of the
French cabinet, and was made the subject
of a long and earnest discussion before it
was finally concluded that the govern
ment could not dare to risk the verdict of
public opinion in case President Carnot
called upon the imperial visitor to Paris.
REMARKABLE SCENE IN LONDON.
The Funeral of a "Jack the Ripper" Vic
tim Attended by Thousands.
London, Feb. 26. The city yesterday
was he scene of a most remarkable spec
tacle in the funeral of the Coles woman,
otherwise known as "Carroty Nell," whose
murder has created such excitement The
woman, who could not have mustered
half a dozen friends before the tragedy,
was followed to the grave by an enormous
multitude of mourners. The crowds made
angry demonstrations against the police,
whom they seemed to regard in some way
responsible for the crime, or at least for
not having captured Jack the Ripper be
fore he claimed so many victims. Most of
the crowd dropped oft on the way, but a
straggling procession continued for four
miles, as far as the East End cemetery.
The woman's coffin was deluged with
flowers. It was with difficulty that the
police prevented a serious demonstration
of popular anger.
