fffdn! Ditpalch to (hi Inidtlqcnctr,
Washington', 1>. C., Nov. 30.?l.ittlo
change has been noted in tho speaker
ship contest within tho past twenty
four hours. Mr. Mills in apparently
yet in the lead, and has tho largest
number oi second choico votes. His
reserve strength is believed to be far in
advnnco of any of the other candidates.
Mr. Crisp; of Georgia, is regarded as a
waning candidate. Crisp's district has
enjoyed a great manufacturing boom
within the past year. It owes its pros
perity to a protective tariff, and Crisp
must therefore favor protection, mild
though it may be. If he is the least
tainted with protection he is not in line
with tho vast majority of the Demo
cratic members of tho house, four-fifths
of whom ;iro out and out freo traders,
and. thus he is between two lires.
Should he desire the speakership more
than a continuance in congress ho
would renounce all tendency toward
protection. But if ho would prefer a
return to congress rather than a singlo
term as speaker ho would hold to the
best interests of liis district and loso
his present light.
Mr. .Snrincer, of Illinois, continues
to play fast and looso with everyone,
claiming to be every and anything for
thopurnose of antagonizing 110 one,
hoping lie may be the compromise can
Mr. Mills yet "stands pat" on the
Cleveland, freo trade and anti-silver
platform, believing that the ex-Presi
dent's power will pull him through.
Hatch, oi Missouri, and McMillan, oi
Tennessee, are understood to be playing
for committee positions. Tho first
wants to be chairman of the ways and
means committee, and the latter "appro
priations. Bynum, of Indiana, llolinan,
of the same state, McMilian, Hatch,
Crisp and a half dozen others beside
Mills, expect either the chairmanship of
the appropriations, or ways and means
committees, ii not speaker. Should
Mills bo elected Bynum will probably
be chairman of tho ways and moans

"Washington*, D. C., Nov. 00.?AVitb
tho beginning of the last week before
the meeting of Congress, representatives
are flocking to Washington in increas- j
ing numbers, and their presence is giv
ing renewed interest to the Speakership
contest. The situation is now beginning |
to assume clearer outlines anil inter
esting developments may result any
day between this and Saturday.
All live of tho avowed candidates are
now in "Washington, Mr. Hatch, of Mis
souri, having arrived to-day. Messrs. |
Crisp and Mills are each very sanguine
of winning, and each expressed a belief i
that the contest will be short,sharp and
decisive. Messrs. Springer, McMillan j
and Hatch express themselves as of the j
opinion that the fight in caucus will be
ol considerable duration. Each of these
gentlemen says ho is in tho fight to tho ,
end, and each" sees in a prolonged fight
a lair chance oi ultimate victory. The
friends oi Mr. Crisp stato to-day that i
after eliminating all uncertain "votes
? hoy figured ninety-two votes on which j
they could count. They expect at least j
one hundred votes 011 the first ballot
and prophecy Mr. Crisn's election by, j
or before, the second ballot.
Mr. Mills was in excellent spirits and j
confident of election.
"How many ballots would there bo?" 1
''And yourself, the speaker?"
This being the dialogue between an
Associated Press reporter and Mr. Mills
to-day. Mr. Mills also said that every
thing was progressing satisfactorily and
things were unmistakably shaping
themselves in his favor.
Mr. Springer has quite an array of
friends at his headquarters, and others
are expected from Illinois to aid him.
Mr. .McMillan said that besides Ten
nessee's solid vote ho expected to get a
good part oi tho votes of Kentucky,
Louisiana, Mississippi and West Vir
ginia, together with votes from Virginia
and scattering votes from other states.
Koproicutntivo Hatch and party did
not arrivo until late this atternoon. as
the train on which they traveled
was detained by a wreck. Gov
ernor Francis and a largo dele
gation from Missouri arc expected hero
Wednesday to aid Mr. Hatch. Mr.
Hatch stated to an Associated Press re
porter this evening that he was in tho
race for the speakership in good faith.
Tho headquarters of tho various can
didates wore crowded with their friends
uutil late in the evening. There wero
no developments, however, so far as
? known, and tho battle is still between
the five avowed candidates.
There is as yet 110 talk of any with
drawal from tho raco. Each candidate,
according to tho statements of his
friends, is in the contost to stay to the
end. There was some littlo * talk to
niirht, but a very littlo indeed, of a pos

Xkw York, 2stov. 30.? Joseph II.
Choatc has been retained by the -Re
publican leaders of this state to repre
sent the party in its efforts to prevent
Hill and his servants from stealing the
legislature. IIo is now engaged looking
up tho case, and will havo tho general
direction of it.
Associated with him is a formidable
array of legal talent, including Judge
Lester W. Russell, William A. Suther
land, candidate for attorney general in
the recent election, J. F. Park hurst, of
Bath; Robert F. Wilkinson; Mr. Not
tingham, of Syracuse; and James A.
Blanchnrd, counsel of the Republican
National League. Matthew llale, of
Albany, will, in all probability, be re
tained", and possibly one or two other
equally prominent members of the bar.
The retention of these irentlemen
means that the Republican managers
arc going to tight Hill with all the
power of tho law. They aro going to
appeal to tho courts for justice, making
this appeal through men of tho highest
character and attainments. A careful
consideration otall the cases in dispute
has been made, and a plan of action has
been ai:reed upon. Instead of being
managed separately and independently
as heretofore, each caso will havo tho
guidance of tho entire counsel, as the
attorney in direct charge of it will be in
communication with the leading counsel
in this city. Tho result of this arrange
ment cannot fail to bo of the greatest
importance. No matter when the State
Board of Canvassers takes up the dis
puted districts, whether to-morrow,
next day, or a fortnight hence," the
Republican side will be properly repre
sented and ready to proceed.

fipcce of All-T/io Jubilee UcrvlccH
St. Louis, Nov. 30.?On November 30,
1841, just fifty years ago, Peter Richard
Konrick was consecrated a Bishop of
the Roman Catholic Church. To-dav,
tlio fiftieth anniversary oi his conse
cration, liis goldpn jubiloo is being
celebratod with a pomp and glorification
that lias never beforo been witnessed
excepting on the occasion of the golden
jubileo of Leo XIII. Tlio celebration
lias been made grand for tlio reason
that Archbishop Kcnrick is among the
foremost men in tho church; because of
hia sterling qualities and purity of
character; because of his deep piety
and great learning, and because he has
at all times been the friend of tho poor
and oppressed. He is universally lie
loved and especially by citizens of .St.
Louis, to very many of" whom ho has
not only administered religious con
solation but on various occasions ex
tended much needed financial aid. As a
business man he was recognized to be tho
peer of any. The financial affairs of tho
archdiocese have been so well managed
that never have private or individual
contributions been solicited for the
supportNof any cliuich, institution oi
learning, or of relief. Tho schools, con
vents, hospitals and homos of the
Roman church in !?t. Ixmi? lu\vo all
been erected and operated with the
greatest success through his etl'orts.
Only onco beforo has the goldcd jubileo
of a bishop boon celebrated, that of
John Mcllale, archbishop of Tuam,
Ireland, eleven years ago. It is an
event so rare that tho whole world is
interested in it, and in this caso not
simply becauso such celebrations are
infrequent, but because Archbishop
Kenriek has tilled these fifty years
with usefulness and good, and were it
not for the fact that ou a notable occa
sion iie incurred the displeasure of the
Holy See by declaring boldly his unbe
lief in the infallibility of the pope, ho
would now be a prince of the church.
It iy related in connection with the
above that had he not virtually defied
the head of the Roman church he would
have been created n cardinal long before
THE GRAND PONTIFICAL MASS.
The grand pontifical mass, commem
orative of the occasion, began at i)
o'clock in the historic old cathodral on
Walnut street. It was the most im
pressive ceremony ever seen in a Cath
olic chiirch in "this city, the leading
representatives of the Roman Catholic
hierarchy of the United .States olficiat
ing. An" hour before this grand cere
mony the venerable archbishop said
mass privately in his own chapel, and
then repaired to the cathedral, where,
in cape and mitre, ho assisted the car
dinal. As has been stated the jubilee
sermon was delivered by his grace,
Archbishop Kyan, of Philadelphia, who
for years held the coadjutor bishopric
of this province. Preceding the mass
there was an impressive procession
from tho Catholic parish school, situa
ted next to tho church, to'thc main en
trance to the cathedral.
Tho ollicers of the mass and tho school
then formed and marched out to Wal
nut street in the following Order. Cross
bearer, acolytes, priests in cassock and !
surplice, superiors of religious order,
monsignori, mitred abbots, bishops

In tho march out from the yard and
up tho steps of the church, the vener
able archbishop walked under a canopv,
which was carried by the attendants
appointed for the occasion.
AN UNUSUAL CEREMONY.
The pontifical mass was somewhat
unique, as it has not occurred in this
city for a number of years. The cere
monies differ from usual high mass, in
that they were more inipressivo and
elaborate. The altar was dressed in
magnificent style with llower^, ever
greens aud colors. An illuminated cru
cifix adorned the tabernacle. On the
epistlo side was the cardinal's tiirono,
decorated with cardinal silk and bunt
ing. Directly opposite was tho arch
bishop's throne. Kneeling stools and
chairs were provided iortho otherciergv
participating. After tho cardinal hail
vested, ho proceeded'to the foot of the
altar, meanwhile blessing tho clergy
and tho people. lie then said tho "fu
troit," and incensed tho altar, after
which ho passed between the deacons
to his throne.
After tho choir sang the "Kvrio" tho
cardinal intoned the "Gloria 'in oxeol
sis." After the sermon tho "credo"
was recited by tho cardinal, his assist
ants, the deacons, sub-deacons and all
tho assistaut priests. lie then read the
offertory, aud following this read the
mass in the usual manner. Tho eere

Tho music of tho mass was given 011 a
grand scale. Tho mass was selected for
the occasion, Gounod's "Messe Solemn

an orchestra of thirty-six pieces and the
After tho pontifical mass Archbishop
Kenrick, Cardinal Gibbons, Arch
bishop Kyan and all the visiting arch
bishops and priests were driven to tho
Lindell hotel, where a banquet was ten

guests. Tho toasts were responded to
by visiting prelates.
The Cardinal and Archbishop Ken

deeply moved by tho expressions of
love from his priests, arose and made n
short but directing response. Nov.
Father Goller then made an address ot
welcomo to Cardinal Gibbons and the
visiting clergymen. Father Coffee, tho
toastmastor, then announced the urn
toast, which was responded to by
Cardinal Gibbon*. Tho toast was Our
Holv Father, l>o XIU. , ,^ar^V,RT
Gibbons said: "Tho namoof l<eo XIu

peer of bin lireat namesake, Uo I, ami

Church of God. Leo hns provod him

also a man of tho people. Like his Ui
vino master, ho can say 4I havo com

"In ono of his first encyclicals en
titled, 'Kternl 1'atris,' tho Holy l athor
invites the student of divinity and tho
Christian priest to ascend liko Moses
the Mount of God, there to commune
with their maker and to study tho
mvsteries of the kingdom of heaven.
In his luminous encyclical on the con
stitution ot Christian states, our lloly
Father proclaims tho fundamental truth,
a truth which, though fundamental is
sometimes forgotten or controverted,
that the Catholic religion is adapted to
all the times and all places, and that
she finds herself at homo under overv
form of government.
She is at home not only under mon
archal svstems, but also under repub
lican forms of government. JThank GoU,
wo can hear this evening echo back the
sentiments of our Holy Father, and 111
the light of experience and observation
can attirm that, while tho church has
had to stru2?le, and while she still
"tridtgles for existence under the dark
shadows of despotic rule, she grows and
expands like the oak of the forest under
the free air o f our republican institu
tions. Nowhoro docs the church ot
God enjoy greater liberty than here,
and nowhero else does she advance >\ ith
more rapid strides.
Till: LAllOlt QUESTION*.
In his latest encyclical on labor tho
Holy Father proclaims the rights and
dignity of labor and the laboring man.
He tells us that Christ by his teachings
and example has ennobled labor and
that ever since ho toiled at his trade/in
Nazareth ho has bhed a halo around the
workshop. In all his public utterances
the pope proves that he is abreast with
the times and that he is in sympathy
with tho legitimate aspirations
of humanity. Wo are grateful
to the lloly Father for his
paternal interest in the Anieri
ean church. Wo are grateiul to him
for tho affection lie has always mani
fested toward tlio clergy and the peoplo
of the United States. We thank him

X. W. Bliss, of Chicago, argued the
third point that the law was unconstitu

tobacco rebate section from the bill as
signed by the President.
After ^ho had stated his objection,
