BECKSTRDM, 51S JACKSON ST. .JUSTICE 1IORTON ENDORSED Judge C orley Say H in Decision la th Ounn Caie Was Good. The decision written by Chief Justice Ilorton in the Gunn case growing out of the political struggle for the control of the Kansas legislature in le93,- was quoted fully in the settlement of the re cent controversy ia New Jersey, the court of that state taking substantially the same ground a3 in the Gunn case. Since the New Jersey case was decid ed. Judge Ilorton has received the fol low inir letter froci Judge Thomas 31. C'ooley, of Ann Arbor: "The criticism made by your decision In the legislative case never, so far as I could see. affected in the lean the public sentiment of the country, either in the profession or out of it. The decision was sound and right, and the common sense of the country had no difficulty in recognizing that fact. The decision in the New Jersey case is on the same lines and is also sound and right. I never ex pected anything different from that court. The able lawyers of the country who belong to the same political party' with a majority of the judges would have been suprisel and shocked, I am sure, by a different decision." OVER THE VETO. and Making- Efforts to Pass BU mil Others kusuia Cleveland. Washington, Ar.rU 3. The question of passing the Bland silver seigniorage bill over President Cleveland's veto was to have come before the house today, and active preparations have been made by the elements tor and against the presi dent's proposition. Representative Tra cer (Dern.. N. Y.) sent 174 letters Democratic members who could be to t rC- i lied upon to sustain the president. The letter is as follows: "Mr. Bland has given notice that Tues day, April 3rd, he will ask to have the seigniorage bid passed over the presi dent a veto. I ara uirected tv the minor ity members of the committee on coin age, weignis, ana measures, to urge you to be present in the house that day and to remain until the vote has been taken. "Respectfully yours, "Charles Tracey. There is every probability, however, that the contest over the veto will be put off, owing to the deadlock over the con tested election cases. Representative Tracey saya the veto will be sustained by a large vote. "It will not be far short of two hundred if there is a full house," said he. "There will be the vote of those against the bill in the first place, and the added vote of those who wish to sustain the president, although formerly favorable to the bilL" "If the Republicans do not vote," said 3lr. Uland. "1 think we can pass the bill over the veto by a two-thirds vote of the Democrats, but if the Republicans vote they will sustain the veto.". Mr. Tracey says it is absolutely certain that the Republicans will vote. "n Iranfinfo" oe to Blnefield.

TO SELECT FROM. fill Work Guaranteed AND SUPEINTEDED ME PERSONALLY. BY H. C. LANG, 908 Kansas Ave.) LONG DRAWN OUT, No Prospect -of This Session of Congress Ending Before Next, October at the Ontside. IT IS ALL . NONSENSE To Try to Make Cleveland Favor Silver. Washington, April 8. Special. If the past fortnight is to be taken as a measure of progress, then instead of reach ing an adjournment in July the present session will lap over and far into the next and leave a great deal of unfinished busi ness at that. The dreary monotony of roll calls, the ringing of bells to call members from committee rooms and the rushing of messengers hither and yon to hunt up the absent have been the principal sources of amusement to onlookers, and it is a sort of amusement of which a very little goes a great way. Among the live questions about the cap itol i3 this, "Why do the Democrats have so much difficulty iu maintaining a quo rum?" There are two answers. One is: "Because they have such a brutal majori ty. Each fellow thinks he can leave at will and it will make no difference, and the city members are particularly bad a very large number of them being feverish to get away friday afternoon and unwill ing to return until Tuesday. The fact is, we haven't got our big majority well or ganized and disciplined yet."' So say the Democrats. The Republicans put it thus: "The majority of the majority have got up a mass of stuff which the minority of that majority doesn't want to see adopted, and yet does not want to break party lines and vote against. Take this contested election case of O'Neill against Joy. The fair minded Democrats don't want to turn out Mr. Joy, and yet they don't wan to vote against a report of their own committee. " A Republican. View. Mr. McCall of Massachusetts Bays: 'These absentee Democrats are not here because their hearts are not in the work which was cut out for them. They want a reform of the tariff, and they want a great many other thing-;, bat they don't want a general onslaught on everything that is distinctively northern and north eastern." When, however, an opinion is asked of such Republicans as General Gros venor and Hendersou, they have the same old explanation the total depravity of Democrats and their inborn, inherent, ir remediable incapacity to govern the coun try. Whatever the reason may be, it is certain that the dominant party is burning daylight, and the leaders are getting ex tremely nervous abovit it, as a great many important measures are still to be discuss ed, and on at least three of them the Hatch antioption bill leading the fight is to be terri". The various McGann bills to protect la bor, or, as the sarcastic members say, to make their authors solid with the laborers, have been pretty well ground through the judiciary committee, and Messrs. Boatner of Louisiana, Terry of Arkansas and Stone of Pennsylvania, as a subcommittee, are bard at work investigating Judze Jenkins and the railroad employees. Mr. Boatner continues to nromisn that lie will stir things np from the bottom and get in some very energetic work on the question of col lecting what the Pacific railroad owes the government, but Senator Cullom and oth er old senators smile as skeptically as ever and prophesy confidently that nothing will be done at this session. The Coxey XSIizzard. The appropriations bills also have taken up a great deal more time than was ex pected, and there are some measures from the committees on public lands and Indian affairs which are expected to excite lively debate. In the recent dull times, when the principal business was calling the roll and answering thereto, our only amusements were the current comments on the Breck inridge case and the freezing out of Cox ey's army of invasion. According to the weather bureeru, the blizzard which scat tered Coxey "s forces started in Texas and traveled northeastward. John Allen says, however, that it is a great mistake to sup-r pose that Providence sent the blizzard es pecially to abate the malign influence of Coxey, as it was really started by the flop ping of the two wings of the TexasDemoc racy in their late efforts to get together. The Texan members admit that the flop ping was vigorous indeed, but just the same the two wings have got together, and the whole delegation expect toabe returned by the usual figures, with a majority of 150,000 or so for the state at large. When President Cleveland returned from his late trip down the river, all who saw him expressed astonishment at his vivaci ty and greatly improved appearance, and for a few days he seemed really glad to see members and handed out the otlices with something like old fashioned Democratic alacrity. Before he got through with the seigniorage bill, however, far different re ports were given out, not only as to health, but as to his temper and spirit. And now it is the turn of western Democrats to be on the anxious seat. Mr. Bailey says: "It is all nonsense to try to go on this way. one side at a time, lika a half sled on ice. The Democrats have got to do just like the Republicans did on some of the questions that arose in their early days and particu larly during the war that is, plcw around' the diiEculty. Ia other words, the Democrats must cut loose from Cleveland's silver policy. It is all nonsense to go ou pretendiDg or ting to make ourselves be lieve that he is lrienuly to silver when we know as a matter of fact that he is hostile to it." Another Hot Fiht L.,ke'l For. If any single standard man has be-u In dulging the hope that either success or failure in any measure so far reported would pacify the silver men and make them quiet for the rest of this congress, he may aoandon it at once. Mr. BIlU frank ly acknowledges that the i-at little mite of success only whets the r.pp&tite of his folks for more, and any successful opposi tion irritates thetu iiud excites them to greater effort. The advocates of radical measures in counactioa with the tariff do not go quite eo far, but it is every day more evident that in the house the opposi tion to the senate's action on the Wilson bill is growing, and several Republicans look forward glc-iuily to another hot fight before the ssiate Eien(ivueats are adopted. Ia short, ti-e ger-rr,i eialion at present may be summed up thus: The jrospeetacf an early adjourn uent, if tey ever amount ed to anything, have completely faded away, and in .their stead there is an arie- ipation of several fierce contests which will be prolonged until late in August anyhow and possibly much later. MURDER IN TAMMANY HALL The Revelry of the Cariuencita Club Ends in a Riot. New York, April 3. From revelry to riot was but a step and a short one at that at the masked ball of the Carmencita club in Tammany hall at about 4 o'clock this morning. There were upon the floor and in the boxes not far from 1,500 persons and though the bar was closed there was no lack of intoxicants, so that when the dis turbance .began many persons were crazed with drink. Roundsman Shay precipitated the trouble bv undertaking to stop the performance that was going on in a box occupied by Eddie Hirsch, proprietor of a Coney Island dance house, and a party of his friends. The otiicer was told to mind his own business, whereupon he tried to pull Hirsch from the box. Instantly a rush was made for the officer. Other police men iu the hall went to Shay's assis tance. Bottles and chairs were made use of by the crowd. Clubs were swung lustily and many heads felt the force of the locusts. In the midst of the affray the 'lights were extinguished, but the struggle did not even then abate. When the lights w ere again turned on one man was lying dead upon the stairs leading to the street. His name was Terrence Gallagher, aged 33 years, a race track tout, whose residence was 122 East 125th street. Mark Buckner, a Baxter 6treet puller-in, had his head cracked and may die. George Bernstein, a barkeeper, was badly cut in the haud. The tight lasted until a call sent to the nearest police station had brought to the hall a detail of officers strong enough to overawe the frenzied crowd. The police say that Gallagher's death was caused by heart disease. It is al leged that Roundsman Shay, whose efforts to stop the skirt dance in Eddie Ilirsch's box brought on the row, had been drinking, and was in fact drunk. The organizer of the Carmencita club is Edward A. Corey, an ex-detective and a former partner of Hilly McGlory of "dive"' fame. Corey now has a saloon at 115 East Fourteenth street. The pro gramme shows that among the honorary are the leaders of several East Side poli tical clubs. UNCLE SAM'S MONEY. There I $133,050,025 in the Treasury, Bat He Owe $1,630,000,000.

When the alarm was sounded at fire department headquarters the worshippers began to stir, and when a big blaze shot through the roof the barn, letting its light fall on the windows of Chickering hall, there came near being a panic. The men were not much alarmed, but the women, some of them at least, made a wild rush for the exita. Some screamed and others felt like fainting. The cool headed men, seeing there was absolutely no cause for alarm, acted promptly and the stir was soon quieted. During the excitement the Rev. W. X. t'age mounted a chair and shouted: "If you people who are making such a stir were half as afraid of hell fire as you are of the one out there it would result in the accomplishment of much good."
