Court of wil&'telphia, declared the law of
the rof 'n Pennsylvania to be that per-roo-ni6eting
oa the highway most each
ysrp to the right. This rule is modified
in the case of footman cr horse
man, who cannot compel a team
ster who haa a heavy load to
turn oat of the beaten track, or even a
light wauon with a heavy draught. If a
horseman or Iiaht vehicle can pass with
BaMy on the le t of a heavily laden team
it is their duty to give way and leave the
choica to the more unwieldy vehicle.
The g'laet'.y story, the j articulars of
whith we publish iu another column, is a
mystery that will puzzle the police of St.
Loais to unravel. With ten days the start
of them, and some confusion as to the sex
of the friend cf the murdered man, the
criminal has an advantage he will not be
slow to avail himself of. The inscription
on tksi paper found in tho trunk with the
dead body "S3 periah all traitors to the
great esuse" intensifies the mystery that
hanss about a tir?at crime.

Current.
Eome, April 1 1. The periodic rumor of
the Pope's intention to leave Borne is
s;."in current. The marked favor shown
the ultramontane cardinal, Oreglia, by the
holy fatner is interpreted rather hastily as
proof that this time the report is worthy
of credence. This much is true, Leo
XIII haa counseled Cardinal Oreglia to
present a proposal to the Caaierhngo to
arrange the meeting of the next conclave
outside of Italy, should the Italians at
tempt the slightest interferencs with its
labors. Oreglia'a nomination is very disa
greeable to the Q.iirinal.

It It Adjourned?
Nashville Banner: The Legislature has
been dec'ared adjourned by the Speakers
of the two houses, but that i: has beea
constitutionally adjourned is a question
involved ia very grave doubt. Taking a
common-sence view of it, it must be said
that the regular session of the Legislature
has not been legally terminated. The
members have simplv disbanded. The
constitution provides that !e?s than a quo
rum may aaiourn irom day to day. but it
does not autliorize a sine die adjournment
by iees than a uuorum of members. For
the test of reasons euch authority is not
given. If less than a quotum could ad
journ sine die, it is easy to seo how great in
jury m:gat be done, and how legislation
might be frequently obstructed. Both
houses of the General Assembly funnd
them elves without a qaorum, and
the expedient was adopted of omit
ting the call of the rolls i.i or
der that the journals would not show the
real ststa of affairs. In othei words, it
was agreed that tho tru'.h should not be
recorded. By a stretch of public courtesy
and of the public conscience, and by the
Kinking at an avoidance, if not an abso
lute breach, of tho law, the Legislature
may he considered aojourced. iut if oc
casi.n should arit-o to test the question iu
the courte, and such a contingency is by no
means unlikely, it can be positively proved
that there was not a quorum in either
House when the vote to adjourn was taken.
Suppose that all of the members of the
Legislature except the Speak ra and three
or four members of both houses had gone
on another trip t) New Orl.nns or on a
fishing excursion and had refused to come
back until some indefinite- time dependent
on their own sweet wills, dots anyone sup
pose that the three or four members at
their posts coui 1 legl y and constitution
ally aiijourn the Genera: Ass?moly sine
dif with the most important unfi.iifhed
business pending? Vtty these membeia
would have as much right to cloe the
scss on r.g any number lea t::an a quo
rum. If then the Legislature is not con
stitutionally adjourned can the Governor
call a new and extraordinary session until
the regular session has been properly ter
minated? Should he call an extra cession
under the present circumstances would
not there be good reason to doubt the
constitutionality of any iegisialion in such
a pt-ssiop, -and would tot tha enforcement

There might still be grave questions
la'sed, but the neare t approach to legiti

Everything should be done according to
tho law ai'd constitution. A great Stato
cannot afford to eet tho bad example of
going outsi ie of the letter aod r-pirit of
the law and winking at unauthorized
methoii. A Legislature has no more
right to disregard the law than a citizen
has. On tho other haul the law-making
power should have a punctilious regard
for tLe very letter cf the cuustilui on and

it is a bad one, and the proper remedy
should bo applied at the earliest day.
ability, and is popular with the people and
worthy of their confidence. Judge
Featherston's political and social life is
part of the history of this State, and both
are bright and clear without a stain. Gov.
Lowry is also a candidate of pronounced
popularity, of une sb lities, and possesses
much strength. Judging from the ability,
popularity and strength of the several
candidate's, this quartette fight portendB a
lively and interesting contest, and how
ever it may result Mississippi will have a
good Governor.

he was hung. Johnson then recited in a
cool and deliberate manner the details of
a shocking crime which haa always been
shrouded in mystery. Two months since
a lady living forty miles from Burnsville
mysteriously disappeared and no trace of
her could be found. Johnson confesseri
to having outraged the woman, and after
accomplishing his purpose cut her throat

A white man and a mulatto girl who oc
cupied adjacent cells at the stationhouse
last night will figure in the Police Court
this morning as the central figures in a
little one-act drama, with several sensa
tional climaxes. The man, W. A. Vaughn,
is a clere for the Mississippi Valley rail
road, and has resided in the city about
four months. He is about thirty years of
ago and very neatly dressed. The woman,
who ia callel Amelia Lewis, is perhaps
twenty-two years of age, very bright, in
telligent above her class, and evidently
completely under Vaughn's dominion.
Patrolman Jackson, who
MADE THE A BREST,
states that when on the corner of Beale
and Desoto streets last evening about 8
o'clock he beard cries of distress, and
going in the direction of the sound, found
1 ho woman crying as if she had been
beaten and the man standing near her in
a terrible rage. Both were accordingly
.UtRESTED AND LOCKED CP
for trial in the Police Court this morning.
Vaughn was found in his cell by an ArrAL
man last nigot- He was the picture
of dispair and evidently felt a
deep sense of humiliation, which
v, as augmented by ti e information that
the aff air has gone too far to admit of any
suppression of the facts. "I am not guilty
of ihe charge made againtt me," he de
clared;"! have known
TDE YELLOW CJIRL
Amelia for some time, and while I ad
mit I am a married man, I will not deny
that I went to see her. Sly wife heard of
it and got Ciiief Davis to send for me. I
went to his otii- e and promised to send
the woman away. I have tried to get the
money, and weot to see him two or three
times afterward to tell him I would
KEEP MY rROMISE,
but coul 1 not fiud him. I went down to
visit Amelia this evening and told her she
must go back to Georgia. She began to
scream and cry, and I tried to qu et her
but couldn't. 1 he lirst thing I knew tbe
police rushed in and arrested ns, This is
all I know of the whole matter. I was
never in aph.c of this kind before, and I
would to God I had never got
INTO THIS SCRAPE.
Om't I get you to do something for me?"
The reporter declared his willirjgcet-s to
biig him, and Vau.bu said his wife did
not know he ha 1 been arrested, and he
wanted to send her word, but when
roeucil and paper were produced
he declined to five her address. The
soH 'on-hued heroine, who occupied a cell
within call, wt- nc-"t approacned, and

she was lerfectiy willing to talk. With

of an hour about her relations with
Vaughn. "I have known him for seme

time, and was a clerk

He canie to see me and looked alter me

me to come to Memphis. I don't think
his wtra knew
what wss going on until I came here. She
tried lo get me to go away, and I am sorry
she is in trouble on my account. Mr.
Vaughn did not beat me, but he told me
I must go away, and I was crying about it
when tne police came id.
"Wasn't there a man in the case""
"No, sir."
"Are you sure?"
"Well, a

roughly treated.
RESOLUTIONS OF BESPECT.
New Yobk, April 14. With daylight
this morning it was eitsy enough to fceo
the cause of the terrible acciduut on Sixty
second street yesterday afternoon. The
buildings fell because there was simply
nothing to hold them together. Ilad
densick, the builder of the tenement, that
fell, has constructed block after block in
the neighborhood of yesterday's accident.
Philip liausman, a builder, said: "The
houses fell because they were rottert.
They were built of refu-.e. Look at the
bricks th t were being used. They are
not br c-s, but halves and quarters and
chunks oi bricks, poorly burned, the
miserable oflV of a biirk-yard. This stuff
is what the walls were being constructed
of. But, though that -is enough to con
demn any building if the public eafety is
considered at all, it is by no means the
worst feature of this case. 1 on see these
brickbats are almost clean. 1 here is no
mortar on them at all. The stuff
used in laying the bricks in the
wa'l was simply wet dirt. It is
called loam, and is tha clayey stuff exca
vated from the callars after the rocks were
blasted for the foundations. This loam is
fine dirt. Sand and lime make mortar.
A fourth part of tha lime required to
make good mortal with sand will mix this
loam, and while it is wet it is somewhat
sticky. 80 soon as it gets dry it does not
bold at all. Mat is wnat sued ttieso
buildings. The walls were matte of brick
bats stuck together with dry dirt."
All the builders and masons present
corroborated these statements.
Said one, "This loam, when we, is mud ;
when dry, it is pewder, and thousands of
tenementhouses and flats for the poor
people are being put up in this city with
just this stuff. All there houses thi" 70s
see about here are built of rotten bricks
and mud."
8eak:hiku the at ins.
Gangs of men worked all night in the
ruins of the eight fallen tenements in
West Sixty-second s'reet, but turned i p
nothing siave bricks and broken timbers.
No dead or irjnred were found, and there
wss no sign ct life about the ragged heaps
of wreck. The firemen are of the opinion
that there are bodies in the ruins. The
hope grows stronger, however, that this
may not be so. Neither atth- hospital
norat the police station had inquiries been
made for missing persons up to 10 o'clock
this morning. Many of the workmen
were unmarried Germans without friends
or relations in this city and living inboard
inghouses. Some of theBemay have been
killed without their absence exciting spe
cial inquiry. The building inspector will
to-morrow place on trial Examiner Robert
Mackey, who was in charge of that
district, for allowing the defective mortar
to be used in the construction of
the houses. To day Baddwnsick'a other
buildings in the city will be inspected by
the department. Baddecsick has ulways
been clashing with the health department,
in his con-taut efforts to evade the laws of
the department. Baddeusick is backed by
a syndicate of moneyed men, who, it is
said, wocld stop at nothing to make money.
one leatii.
Louis Walters, the framer, who was in
jured in the catastrophe, died to-day in
the hospital. The coroner has impaneled
a jurv and will to day view the r-ins. His
investigation will be thorough, and will
fix the responsibility where it belongs.
The police this afternoon arrested Chae.

tion of the buildings.
