Washington-, March 1. The supreme
court- reconvened yesterday for spring ses
sion. Along list of unusually important
and interesting cases was disposed of and
the attendance of attorneys was large,
among them being Attorney General
Miller, General B. F. Butler, ex-Secretary turs t enact any nil
Boutwell, 'Senators Davis and Kenna,
Solictor General Taft and e.x-Kepresenta-tive
Payson. So far as the Amerieau
people are concerned probably the moat
important of the decisions was that on the
validity of the McKinley tariff law. This
was in the case of Marshall Field & Co.,
of Chicago; R. M. Boyd, et al., and Charles
Steruback et al. of New York, vs. the
United States. The opinion was delivered
by Justice Harlan.
Kxplunnf ion of the Ca.e.
Duties were assessed on various articles
Imported by the appellants under the Mc
Kinley bill, and they protested against
payirg them on the ground that the act
was not the law of the United States for j
the reason that section thirty of the act as
it passed loth houses and was agreed to in
conference was omitted from the enrolled
bill signed by the presiding officers of the
two houses and by the president, and that
therefore it did not comply with the re
quirements of the constitution. This was
the first time the question was presented
to the court, and the justice saiil it receiv
ed the consideration it deserved.
Complete Authentication Defined.
After referring to the constitutional re
quirements respecting the passage of a
bill and the proceedings of congress, the
The Mtniiug by the speaker of the house of
representatives and by the president of the

official attestation by the two houses of nch a

a bill thus attested receives his ( the presi
dent's) apiroal and is deposited in the public!
archives, its authentication, as a bill that has
passed congress, should le deemed complete
and unimpeachable. i
Contention of the Appellant. I
It is admitted that an enrolled act thus au
thenticated is suffliie t evidence of ito!f
nothing to the contrary appearing upon its face
that it passed conmrss. Hut the contention
is that it cannot ho regarded as a law of tho
United States f the journal of either house
fails to hmv that it passed in the precise form
act. When it was liefore the house for
action 138 votes were recorded for the pas
sage f the bill, w hereupon the speaker
proceeded to make a quorum by counting
seven' y-four representatives present, but
not voting. The decision says:
It is within the competency of the lenisla-
not forbidden by the
constitution or aifaiiw natural justieo to
secure the prescm-e of a quorum, and wluvi
that q loruiu is present it is there for the pur
pose of doiiiK business.
A tu the Act Itself.
As to the meaning of the act,
Justic.i Brewer said it was a general in
struct! m to the secretary of the treasury
to classify as worsted goods nil imported
woolen goods, mid that he was not requir
ed in every particular case of importation
to maka the change by special order. The
I conclusion of the court is that the act was
j legally passed; and that by its own terms
and irrespective of any action by the sec
retary f the treasury the duties on worst
ed clot is were to be such as were placed
by the act of ls-Sl on woolen cloths.
DECIDED THE SAYWARD CASE.
Vncle Sam Wins Barbed-Wire Patents
That English Hector.
The Sayward case was decided in favoi
of the U iited States. The Sayward was
seized filty-nine miles from land iu Behr
lng sea v hik killing seals in violation ot
United States law. The vessel was con
demned to be sold by the district court in
Alaska, and its owners, who really repre
sented the British government, asked lor
a writ of prohibition to prevent the sale.
The United States claimed that the su
preme court did not have jurisdiction be
cause the question was a political one, but
on this pciut the court decided in favor of
the British contention. The writ of pro
hibition v.iis, however, denied.
Means Life Imprisonment for Them.
Fieldeii and Schwab, the Chicago anar
chists, must stay in prison for life, so says
the supreme court. The claim of the ap
pellants v as that in deciding an appe.il
the suprt me court of Illinois had not
called the prisoners personally before it to
pass judgment, they being at Chicago in
jail at the time the decision against them
was rendered. The supreme court s.ysi
that the provision of law requiring the
prisoners to be in court personally when
sentenced refers entirely to the court of
jn wnien it was sit;nei uy the presiding oiticers original jurisdiction and the prisoners ap-
oi ine two uoust s and approvxi by the pr. si- peal is denied,
dent. It is Mud that, under any other view, it t Itarbed Wl
becomes jio-sil lc for the speaker of the hou
of representatives and the president of the sen
ate to impose upon the people as a law a b 11
that was never passed by congress.
Too l;cluote a Possibility.
But this possibility is too remote to le seri
ously considered in the present inquiry. It
suggests a deliberate conspiracy to which the
presiding officers, the i-ommittces on enrolled
bills, and the clerks of the two houses must
necessarily be parties, all acting with a com
mon purpose to defeat an expression of the pop.
nlarwill iu the mods prescribed by the con
stitution. Judicial action based up in such a
suggestion U forbidden by the respect due to a
coordinate branch of the government.
C hose the Least of Two Evils.
The evils that may result from the recogni
tion of the principle that an enrolled act in the
custody of the secretary of state, attested by
the signature of the presiding officers of the
two houses of congress and the approval of the
president, is conclusive evidence that it as
passed by congress according to the forms of
the constitution, would be far less than those
that would certainly result from a rule mak
ing the vulidity of congressional enactments
depend upon the manner in which the journals
ot the respective houses are kept by the sub
ordinate officers charged with the duty of
RECIPROCITY SECTION ALSO VALID.
re Patents Valid.
The W.isliborti-Moon manufacturing
company g lined a voctury before the court
in cases sei t from the northern Iowa cir
cuit court which had derided against the
validity ol patents on barlied wire for
fences held by the company. It was claim
ed that the patents contained no new
principle aiid were not novel. The supreme
court decides thutalthoughsouiethinglike,
these pateirs many have lieen used before
these had been failures, while the inven
tion of the Washboru-Moen patents had
made a success.
Clergymen Not Contract Laborers.
Some tim ago the circuit court of New
York lined the vestry of Trinity church,
New York, ami Kev. Mr. Warren, an
Kuglish clergyman, $1,000 for violating Cue
alien labor contract law, holding that
under that law Mr. Warren was a laborer
anil the con met with him having been
made prior to his dearture from Knglaud
it was in violation of that law. The
supreme court says that the decision may
be agreeable to the letter of the law, but
not to its s;irit, and therefore the lower
court's judgment is reversed.
The Michigan Railway Law.
A case involving the Michigan railway
law of 18s!) -egulating rates or railwnvs
was decided ii favor of the validity of the
law, the decision being based on the fact
apparently that the evidence for the rail
way company was not competent, as it re-
The Power Given the President Therein
ot at All a New Thing.
The opinion closes the consideration of
the foregoing contention by declaring that
it is not competent for the appellants to ferred entirely to freight rates, while those

Executing, not Making, Law.
What, the president was required to do
was sliuply in execution of the act of
congress... It was not the making of law.
The court is of opinion concluded Justice
Harlan on this point that the third section of
the act is not liable to the objection that it
transfers legislative power to the president.
Even if it were, it would not, by any means,
follow that other parts of the net, those which
Imposed duties upon articles Imported, would
The Sugar Bounty Clause.
The third contention of appellants was
that -the sugar bounty provision was un
constitutional, and the whole act there
fore void. Without going iuto the ques
tion of the constitutionality of the pro
vision, the court says the different parts of
the act, in respect of their operation, have
no legal connection whatever with each
other. The opinion concludes:

strike of miners. It is expected that at
least 1,000,0(10 ii en will lie involved in the

lie church, whom Secretary Blaine in hts
statement criticises for having married
James Blaine, Jr., and Marie Xevins,
left town yesterday. Before he went away
he hud something to say i:i reply to Mr.
Blaine. ''Mr. Blaine says I transgressed
my preistly duty in marrying his son,"
said Father Ducey. "What I did I did
with the knowledge and approval of Arch
bishop Corrigan. The dispensation was ob
tained from the archbishop, who knew nil
the circumstances. Mr. Blaine's sou told
me he was 21 years old. Mr. Blaine should
prefer his complaint to the archbishop,

lie explained the situation. As the young
woman was a tat none and the. young
man was not a Catholic and the couple
wisneu to tie married ny a catholic priest
a dispensation was necessary.
Tried to Dissuade the Connie.
"The archbishop was reluctant to grant
a dispensation. He talked to the. young
couple for more than an hour, but he could
not dissuade them from their purpose.
The young man said that as he lacked but
a few weeks of being 21 there could be no
objection on the score of age. The arch
bishop told young Blaine that on account
of the conspicuous position of his father
lie should be careful not to do anything
that might interfere with his father s plans.
The young man was persistent, and on
Father Ducey's recommendation the dis
pensation was granted.
The I'riest Wholly Responsible.
'It should be understood that the arch
bishop's part was simply to grant permis
sion to Mr. Blaine and Miss Xevins to be
married by a Catholic priest. It was the
duty of the priest who performed the cere
niony to ascertnin if there were anv ob
stacles to the marriage.'' He further said
that Mr. Blaine expressed himself satisfied
with the archbishop's course.
MARIE'S MOTHER TO
Mrs. Ncvlns Charges the Secret iry
State with Lying.
Nkw i i:k, March 1. Mrs. Xevins, the
mother of Marie Xevins-Blaine, was seen
yesterday in reference to the statement
sent out by Secretary of State Blaine.
Mrs. Nevins said: "Secretary Blnine's
statement is at tissue of lies from end to
end. land my daughter will prove that
to the world before we are through with
it. His story of our interview with Mrs.
Blaine is largely manufactured out of the
whole cloth. 1 will tell vou exactly what
took place. I accompanied my daughter
to the house. I he nurse and the child
were with us. We were shown into tin
drawing room. Mrs. Blaine came in. We
all bowed and proceeded at once to busi
ness. Not Allowed to See .lames, .Ir.
"Marie asked to see her husband. Mrs.
Blaine said she could not see him. She
insisted upon the nurse leaving the room.
She said she would not discuss the matter
before a servant. The nurse and little
Jim went to the kitchen. We contintud
to talk matters over for some time. Ail
three of us were perfectly cool. Nil
Blaine said when Marie spoke of Coii.g
away again. 'Well, you can leave your
baby Here it you want to.' If Marie had
been some poor outcast whom Jim Blaine
had seduced Mrs. Blaine could not have
spoken in a more brutal manner. I spoke
up tor .Mane: "lhey have Intth done
wrong, Mrs. Blain", in marrying without
our consent.' A moment or two later she
turned to my daughter and said in an
extremely significant sort of way: 'Well.
your marriage was all wrong any way.
Ordered "These Persons" Shown Out,
"Then I protested. Mrs. Blaine immedi
ately flew into a fury. She almost foamed
at t he mouth. She rang a liell, and a serv
ant appeared with surprising speed. If it
had been my servant I should certainly
have accused her of eavesdropping. 'Show
these persons out,' cried Mrs. Blaine, and
then she added: 'And watch them.' We
walked out and called the nurse and little
Jim. At the door of the carriage the nur?e,
who was crying out of sympathy for Marie,
said: 'Mrs. Blaine, you're a goose to go
away like this. You're his wife. Go right
up to his room. Xo one has a right to stop
you.' Marie went hack into the house. I
stayed in the carriage. Then it was that
the scene took place."
Talk at the National Capital.
Washington, March 1. The most sig
nificant thing iu Bl aiue's letter, it is
thought here, is his denunciation of Father
Ducey for marrying his sou under the cir
cumstances. Universal surprise is ex
pressed that Blaine should attack a promi
nent Roman Catholic iu such scathing
language as he uses in his
letter. Among those who have
read the letter the opinion is ex
pressed that had Jlr. Blaine not given up
all thought of being a presidential candi
date he would not have dared to raise a
conflict between himself and that portion
of the Catholic church that would defend
action of Father Ducey.
The Divorcee Sends for a Paper.

Xevins-Blaine was too ill yesterday to be

Blaine's letter she sent for a newspaper

as soon as possible she will reply.
Took Poison by Accident.

Friend, who lived near La Grange, died
Suuday from the effects of some powertul
drug self-administered, but probably not
with suicidal intent. She was found by
neighbors on the floor in convulsions, her
