"First, that said Joint session Is or

whether a certain justice of the su
prenie court shall be removed from

stated in said subpoena is not mater

and therefore the said Joint session
is without authority to Inquire int

"Second, that a power of investiga

respect of matters upon which It Is
authorized to legislate and the said
Joint session not having such power
nor this extraordinary session having
any present authority to so legislate
it is without power to investigate.
"Third, that neither house of tho

the time of the publication of tho nr

by the governor's direction. On tho

aside from which each of them was
without power to act.
Lastly, the state constitution pro

"John A. Hennessey,
Letter Produced a Sensation.
"Managing Editor New York Press."
This letter produced a profound sen
sation and opened up at once the ques
tion of the powers of tho joint ses
ion. Assemblyman Rogers immedi
ately presented a resolution, already
prepared, instructing the lieutenant
governor and the speaker of the as
sembly to Issue a warrant for the nr
rest of Mr. Hennessey and his appear
ance before the bar of the Joint ses
sion, directing that he be held In cus
tody of the sergeant -nt-armr, to await
action on his case. Mr. Rogers de
clared that Mr. Hennessey's answer to
the summons was "astounding" and
"taking advantage of a subterfuge."
Senator Grady took immediate issue
with this proposition, asserting that
the only way to coerce a witness was
for each house to act separately, after
getting" legal advice upon the iiniiiie
question. Thus began a long debat
over the authority of the Joint session
Senator Grady contended that Hennes
sey was not guilty of contempt since
the session had no power to Issue tho
tubpoena. Senator Fuge and Assem-
blyman Fish sided with him, while
Senator Elsberg took tho opposite
The question was left in the all
when Senator Raines ended the discus
sion by moving that Mr. Rogers' reso
lution be laid on the table and thai
Editor Hennessey be again subpocn
aed under the form provided for In the
special rules of the joint session. Such
a subpoena will definitely require him
to give testimony relative to the
Hooker case.
This closed the incident for the
time being, and the taking of testi
mony was resumed.
Will Turn Over Equitable Holdings
at Price He Paid.
New York, July 18. From a direc
tor of the Equitable Life Assurance so
clety, it was learned that Thomas F
Ryan, who recently purchased th
stock holdings of James H. Hyde, ha
made an agreement with the thret
trustees of the Ryan holdings and th
newly elected directors to sell the
stock he purchased back to tho Eqult
able Foclety.
This sale Is to be made and as soon
as possible, it is stated, nnd Mr. Ryan
has agreed to turn It into the society,
thus thoroughly mutualb.ing It, for the
same sum he paid for It, $2,500,000
plus 4 per cent interest, between thf
dates of his purchase and the sale.
It was stated that a number of the
newly chosen directors, those selected
by the trustees, Grovor Cleveland
Judge Morgan J. O'Brien and Georgt
Westinghouse, accepted posts in thfi
directorate only after they had beer
assured most emphatically that suc!i
an agreement was in view and that
such an agreement existed between
Mr. Ryan nnd the three trustees.
There was a meeting of the execu
tlve committee of the society yester
day but at Its conclusion Chairman
Morton said there was no business ol
any moment transacted.
As a Result Bridge Over Missouri
Must Be Shifted.
Omaha, July 18. The Missouri
river has at last changed its channel
under the big Illinois Central railroad
bridge at this place, and it will be
necessary for the railroad people tc
shift the heavy draw from the Ne
braska to the Iowa side of the stream
Where there were 30 feet, of wate
two weeks ago, today there Is scarce
ly three feet, and on the Iowa side ol
the stream, where for years there ha'
been only a shoal and sand flat, the
Missouri is now 40 feet deep.
The change was made during the
flood of last week, and was discovered
today when the pilot of the steamei
Gtinter hail soundings made before he
would attempt to pass tieneath the
bridge with the draw open.

Hei Legally Dead.

up as dead, appeared in court here

declared her legally dead.
Mrs. Von Linden Is Co years old,
and she and her aunt, Mary Arnold,
aged 84. who started the proceedings
to have her declared dead, met for the
first time In 45 years. Thero was no
difficulty about identification, however,
for Mrs. Arnold recognized her nleco
as soon as she saw her. Mrs. Von Liu
den, formerly Mrs. Henry Mlnnlch,
nee Sarg, told an interesting story to
the court. Attired in a blue silk
dress, the impression she. made was
very favorable.
When asked to give her history, she
brushed rapidly over the last 50 years.
She was born in Perry, this county. In
1810. She first married Henry Mln
nlch of .V,ehlgh county. Several years
later they separated. She loceted in
Newark 2C years ago. Sho married
Von Linden, who was a contractor, and
he died 11 years ago.
In the opinion of tho court 8ho fully
established her identity and in this
her relatives acquiesced. Arrange
ments were then niado to pay over to
her the $500 she Inherits. The money
has been held by Solomon K. Hoffman,
executor of the estate, for 10 years.
Her r.rst husband, Henry Mlnnlch of
Mlnnlch'? Station, Lehigh county,
wrote hep friends a few years ago that
ne thought her dead over 30 years ago
and her Berks relatives had not hoard
from h?r for 45 years. Mr. Mlnnlch
was too Infirm to come here.
