talk for the ".y. Tinner of ( ieorgia took
the floor to speak on tin- subject but soon
cropped it and tackled I!eed on the qu.
ruru counting business. He said that
Reed's decisions on counting quorums had
doomed him to eternal fame. .4.s for the
decision of the supreme con: t, it had de
cided that the house had a right to enact
roles for its procedure, but il did not by
this legalize Keed's outrageous ruling.

antagonist of Hii-d's rulintrs, and he
(Crisp) was now in Deed's place. Ap

Reed replied to Turner's allusion to the
quorum decision of the supreme court. He
ras glad that the Democratic party had
put forth its strongest man. He had stated
the position with a vigor audstreugth that
required no assistance from any other
ource. His declaration was not whether
a present quorum or an active quorum was
demanded by the courts of the United
States, but whether he Iteed as an indi
vidual and as a speaker had violated his
fluty in counting members present who
were in the house. Ho was amused to
listen to such a statement, and said that
until the decision of the supreme court no
one on the other side ever dreamed that
was the issue, and never during t he discus
lion of the rules was any such admission
mad that it was a present and not an act
ing quorum which the courts of the United
States demanded. The gentleman from
Georgia (Turner) had shown the contrary
A Difference an to the Incision.
Turner replied that he had merely in
listed that the decision made by the su
preme court clearly announced that the
ipeaker had a right to count a quorum
after the house hud made the rule allow
ing him to do so. Iteed said the supreme
eouxt never announced any such thlnij.
This showed the acenracy with
which Turner treated this subject.
A short but good natured colloquy
ensued between Reed and Turner
as to the latter's motives. The latter

STATES HIS POSITION IN FULL.
The Ex-Speaker Get the Last 'Word in
Reed replied that his own course was
correct and consistent. "I leave the gen
tleman with the credit he has with his
party associates on that subject. The
whole attempt of the Democratic party to
shift their objection from the question of
a present against nn active quorum, to a
question of my personal net, is one so
transparent that there is not a member on
the floor who does not understand it. The
supreme court has decided iu favor of the
position taken by the Republican party,
and has decided the question by a unani
mous vote, the chief justice and two
Democratic justices concurring in the
opinion. Every court in every state that
has ever decided this question, had been
unanimous in its decision without regard
to party predilections or party feeling.
The House Defying the Law.
"The house of representatives today is
acting in absolute defiance of the consti
tution because it insists upon an actirg
Quorum, where the constitution of the
United States says that a present quorum
Is all sufficient for the transaction of busi
ness. The house can make rules for its
uldance, but they should be in accord
ance with the constitution of the United
States. Whether a quorum is present
or acting is not to be determined by the
house. That was settled by the constitu
tion and by the supreme court, which in
terpreted the constitution. The gentle
man from Georgia has referred to the last

WILL "CALL ENGLAND'S BLUFF."
A General Agreement at Washington as
to the Itehring Sea Case.
Washington, March 11. Everything
Was very quiet Htxmt the state department
yesterday. The Dehring sea matter was,
of course, n subject of discussion among
the officials and attaches, but there was
nothing new in the matter. Sir Julian
Fauncefote did not visit the department
and it was stated that uo communication
had been received from the British gov
ernment, ili.vrt or indirect, to indicate the
tone of Lon. Salisbury's reply to the note
tif the Sth iust. In olHc'uil c ircles, depa.x-
nient and congressional, there w:is ex
pressed a desire, in snorting parlance, "to
call England's bluff."'
Munition NuitH the 1'rrsblent.
It is said I hat the president is content
wil h tlie sit la! ion a far as it has devel
oped, and is 'at isiied that he will lx loy
ally support -d by congress and the people
in maintain ng the rights of the United
States. Tin otlicials appreciate the polit
ical exigency t hat doubtless impels- Lord
Salisbury to take the position implied by
his refusal t extend the modus vivcudi. An
approaching general election in Creat
Dritain and Lord Salisbury's natural de
sire to win i re sullicient to explain that;
but it is beli 'Ved that not even that con
sideration w ill Ik- sufficient to lead the
government to enter into a contest with
the United Siaies over an issue which thej
concede to be wrong and indefensible.
Thinks 1 liulaml Wun't Mj;lit.
Inquiry at the Capitol revealed the fact
that iu its j resent shape and un;!er pres
ent conditio! s the treaty will hardly be
ratified. Said one senator: "I am in
favor of 'ca.ling England's bluff.' She
won't light, and I am not in favor of ask
ing her to a-bit rate as to a right claimed
by us whic.ii she has been and is persist
ently violat iig. There is no excuse for
any one not Inowing to what country the
seals in the North l'acilic and Ilehring sea
lielong. The seals on the Russian side,
living in warmer water, have thinner fur
than those f etjtieuting the rookeries on
the American shores and are worth 1(1 fVr
Oppi-sed to Arhitration.
"Any one w ho kills a seal, even in mid
ocean, knows to what country it belongs.
They can be identified just as easily as a
fleet of boats carrying the United States
flag, anil there would be just as much
sense in a proposition to arbitrate our
right to protect those boats from destruc
tion as th"re is in the proposition to arbi
trate on those seals."
Aiil and Contort from "the Knemy.'
(ioldwin Smith, the noted reciprocity
man, of Torm to, Canada, said yesterday
(he is here yorktng up the reciprocity
fccheme) that the policy stated to have
been enunciat il by Senator Frye in execu
tive session i:ul put into shape by the
Morgan bill to exclude Canadian gotuls
from free transit in bond across the terri
tory of the United States, if rigorously en
forced, would bring Canada to terms inside
of three weeks, and would dispose of all
this sealing business in short order. I:i
other words it would force Canada to a !
mit everything claimed by the United
Republican Split in Texas.

New Yoi:k, March 11. The Standard
Oil trust, the greatest and most powerful
monopoly in the world, is going out of
existence. C T. Hold, solicitor in
charge of till the Standard's legal busi
ness, explained yesterday why it hail been
thought ai'. i.-a'nlvj to have a vote on a
proposition to dissolve the trust. "Tlia
proposal dissolution of the trust,'' said he,
"is due more than anything else to ti e
public outcry ag ainst trus's. It is also a
direct result of the decision of the stipierie
court of Ohio. That decision was tile fust
rendered in any court in the United Siati s
that in any way affected the legality tf
the Standard trust.
Klidikeii tint hy Hie Ohio Court.
"The stockholders of the various stan
dard Oil companies merely put thcir stocks
into the hands of the trustees to hold in
trust in othci" woril.s, the Standard trust
was a trust of personal holders and not C
companies. The supreme court of Ohio,
however, has decided that the Standard
trust iu that state was illegal, on ti:0
ground that a sufficient number of stock
holders of one company had put their stock
into the hands of a trust to give the trust
the control of the company.
The Case May He Appealed.
'"The trust could easily have appeal
ed from the decision of the Ooio court to
the supreme court of the United States,
and no doubt a proposition to do so will
be one of the important matters to be dis
cussed at th.-- coming meeting. It is not
decided yet that it would be wise to dis
solve the trust. 15ut if the trust is dis
solved at that meetinic there w ill be no
reorganization, no applying to other states
and nothing but a straightforward relin
quishment of the trust."
iiiety-l-'ive Millions of Capital.
Mr. Dodd said that the litigation lead
ing np to the decision of the Ohio supreme
court was begun ten years ago, shortly
after the tru-t was organized. The total
capital of the combined companies as rep
resented in t he Standard trust is cl'o.tKM,
UW. In the last ten days the trust certifi
cates have advanced from l.V to 109. The
conditions of the trust, according to Solic
itor Dodd, provide that the trust maybe
terminated :i any time within ten years
from the date of its organization.
l fl. i t of a Klssolut loii.
"At the time the trust was organized
there were thirty certificate holders. There
are now about 2.IV0 scattered ever the
United States and Europe. Should the
jj.ajorityjrte-ciiio to dissolve the trust all
certificate holders will have an equity in
all the companies dominated by the
Standard Oil company. Furthr
more, should the trust bo dis
solved all the companies will lie run as
separate companies, as before the or
ganization of the trust. The controlling
interest will then necessarily be in few
hands, as compared to the present lar&e
number inteiested in the welfare oC the
trust. For eiitht years the trust has paid
8 jier cent, quarterly on the investment.

Mrs. Deacon is described by the concierge

when.as he says, she came to Abeille. The
room in which they met was on the ground
floor, and the concierge was able to see
them looking in a back window from a
balcony across the court.
