Tba debates in the United States
Senate on Mr. Hoar's bill to regulate
the succeasion to the office of Presi?
dent of the I ni ted States are very in?
teresting. On Wednesday Mr. Beck
made a new point against the law as it
now stands?namely, that had the Pre?
sident of tba United States died before
the meeting of this Congress (the Re?
publican senators, although as a whole
in a majority, not being present in suf?
ficient numbers oo the opening of Con?
gress to have constituted a quorum.
the Democratic senators might have re?
fused to go into the Senate until the
House of Representative had elected a
Speaker, and, in electing him, elected
an officer to act as President of the
I'nited States. Such a condition of
things might have resulted in a revolu?
Mr. F.DMCNi's objected that if any
one of the officers named for the succes?
sion should die or go out of office
during a vacation of the Senate, the
President would have absolute power
to appoint his successor without con?
firmation by the Senate. As the lsw
now stands the House of Representa?
tives has nothing to do with the election
of a President pro tem. of the Senate,
though that officer might have to Bet as
President. Nay, the people themselves
have no voice whatever in the matter.
According to Mr. Edmcnds's state?
ment, the law would allow*he Presi?
dent to remove a Secretary and substi?
tute a son or nephew, and thus control
the succession and keep it in the family.
Mr. Edmunds asked Mr. Hoar
what would happen under his bill if the'
President of the I'nited States should
become the rictim of the " inability "
provided for in the Constitution, but
Mr. Hoar declined to answer. Mr.
Teller, however, has introduced abill
that provides a method of ascertaining
that " inability." He would have two
Cabinet members certify the President's
inability to two justices of the Supreme
('oort of the I'nited States, and em.
power these two justices to decide the
question of inability.' He would also
nave the Mme proceedings resorted to
in case the President should recover
from his state of inability.
The more the question is discussed,
the more difficult the problem appears
tobe. The Hoar bill passed the Senate
during the last Congress; yet it is as
fruitful of debate as if it had never been
before that body at all. It is a good
bill M it stands. If it can be improved,
let this be done, lt should be discussed
in all its features and in all their as?
pects. There are now two officers
qualified to act as President of the
United States if Mr. Cleveland
should unfortunately die. There is.
therefore, no pressing necessity for
baste in the passage of the bill. Both
bouses of Congress can discuss it at
the same time if they prefer so to do.

Os May 4th Secretary Bayard in?
formed the Austrian Minister at Wa?h
iogtoe that the President had appointed
Mr. Kelley to succeed Mr. Francie ar
Minister to Vienna. On May 9th the
Austrian Minister handed to Mr. Kay
ard the translation of a telegram from
the Austrian Minister for Foreign Af?
fairs, in which it waa declared that
Hbo position of a foreign Envoy
wedded to a Jewess by a civil mar?
riage would be untenable and
oren impossible in Vienna." This
pat the objection upon a basis as
instinct aa it waa narrow. The objec?
tion waa to the religious belief of the
wife of the commissioned Minister. As
Mr. Keiley waa oa his way to Vienna
when this message waa presented to the
Secretary of State, there was neither
opportunity to delay his departure, nor
for him to act as in the former case, by
resignation, bad he been so disposed.
Loder these circumstances the Secre?
tary of State proceeds to discuss the
It is not a party, it is not a political,
question. With regard to it Freling
huysen would have taken precisely the
position taken by Bayard. It is the
American position, and it is sustained
by Secretary Bayard with equal ability,
dignity, and firmness. " The question,"
he sayg, " raised by your (the Aus
trign) Government involves principles
of the greatest importance, and has
no precedent aa yet discoverable
to mo in modern times and
in intercourse between friendly na?
tions." Austria is informed that the
ground of rejection of Mr. Keiley?the
real or supposed entertainment by bis
wife of a certain religious faith?cannot
be assented to by the Executire of the
Gorernment of the American people ;
that the supreme law of the land ex?
pressly declares that " no religioug test
shall ever be required as a qualification
to any office or public trust under the
United States," and C ^rets shall
make no law respecting an establish?
ment of religion or prohibiting the free
That which the Government of the
Cnited States will not do in this behalf
it will not permit any foreign Govern?
ment to do; with this qualification, (hat
it cannot exercise its sovereign power
in the matter of an exequatur. ** Re?
ligious liberty," the Secretary goos on
to say, " is the chief corner-stone of
the American system of government,
and provisions for its security are em?
bedded in the written charter and in?
terwoven in the moral fabric of its
laws." This is indeed common learn?
ing in this country; it is grateful to
find it so clearly acknowledged and so
admirably enforced. The Secretary
continues the argument in an animated
and patriotic strain, and in a tone which
commands not only the respect, but the
highest approval of every intelligent'
American citizen. And he concludes
by conceding and claiming the righi of
Governments to decide whether a Min?
ister shall or shall not be received.
There seems to have been some shuf?
fling on the part of the Austrian Gov?
ernment as to the grounds of its rejec?
tion of Mr. Keiley, all of which was
promptly disposed of by Mr. Bayard,
who recited the allegations made, and
said : M These conditions are simply in?
tolerable, and are in the case of the
Cnited States not only inhibited
by the plain letter of our Constitu?
tion of Government, but are incon?
sistent with that docent self-respect
which forbids a nation of sixty millions
of free men to accept the position of a
diplomatic dependency of the friendly
Power whose behests appear to have
been acquiesced in and carried out by
Austria-Hungary in the present in?
Mr. Keiley resigned his position. In
this whole business the Secretary of
State has placed himself, waiving any
question of the nomination in thc first
instance, upon undeniable principle; he
managed his cause with equal calmness
and force ; the subject-matter has been
disposed of in a manner satisfactory to
the judgment, the conscience, and the
just pride of the country. We can af?
ford to allow it to remain in its present
General Lawton's Case.
We are glad to be able to agree with
the New \ ork Herald in its views on the
question of whether General Lawton
bas labored under disabilities or not,
One of our exchanges asks why the
bill removing his disabilities expressed
a doubt as to whether he had any ot
not, by using the words "if any he
has." The answer to this question is
found in the fact that the Attorney.
General of the United States had giver
it as his opinion that General Law
ton's disabilities had been removed bj
the President of the Cnited States
who had pardoned him. A number o
senators and other congressmen con
curred in that opinion. It was, there
fore, a mere act of courtesy to recog
nize the fact that there were two sidei
to the question.
The Herald puts the whole case in i
nutshell when it says there is no rea
sonable doubt that thc pardoning powe
of the President may be controlled b;
constitutional amendment, and it i
equally plain that the fourteenth amend
ment applies to all persons of the desig
neted class, whether they were or wer
not pardoned before the adoption of th

all. Recent events would seem to in?

pretty much of his way of thinking.
We are afraid the organs cannot reform
matters in this respect for several years
to come, and would therefore suggest to
them that it would be more profitable

Washinotox, Ga., December 17.
The funeral of General Robert Toombs
took place here to-day in the Methodist
Episcopal church. The whole town is
in mourning. Thc church was appro?
priately draped. On the chancel-rail
was a beautiful pillow of flowers, which
bore the letters "R. T." in immor?
telles. On one side of the pulpit was
another bearing the word " Lest." and
opposite this an exquisite dural anchor.
The casket was bronze, with wrought
leaves of beautiful workmanship orna?
menting it. Governor McDaniel and
many prominent citizens of the
State were present. Selections
from the Scriptures were read by Rev,
W. II. Laprade, pastor of the church,
and prayers were offered by Revs. S,
S. C. Hillyer and J. D. Brown. Th?
funeral discourses were by Rev. W,
H. Laprade and Bishop Beckwith
They were frank and straightforward

Toombs and regretting the late date a'
which he connected himself with tin
Church and his failure to usc hit
magnificent powers throughout hi:
life on the side of religion. Gen

ago. His integrity has never beei
questioned. His lore for his .rife wa
beautiful in its unaffected sincerit;
and fervor, and his home-life was irre

always lived, mourns his death like

At the end of the war between Chili
and Peru the latter Power was greatly
exhausted. Ceneral Miguel Iglesias
was at that time recognized as the de
facto President of the country. As such
he signed a treaty of peace with Chili,
on October 20, 1883, after which he
was allowed to occupy Lima, the capi?
tal. I iider the conditions of peace the
province of Tarapaca went into the pos?
session of Chili. The Chilians also oc?
cupied the denartments of Tocna and
Alica for ten years, after which a pop?
ular vote is to decide to which country
i hey belong. From the time when peace
was nude with Chili until quite recently

buildings on the Plaza, nt Lima. Gene

should abdicate and permit the holdinf.
of a general election. He then de

had fortified. After some lightinj

life in Peru. Thc mother had Indiai

The Convention was called to order
at vfio P. M., and as the Committee
on Resolutions were not ready to re?
port Dr. R. A, Wise, representative
from this district, was. on motion, in?
vited to address the assemblage. He
spoke for a short while, informing hi<
audience that he came to be instructed
on the oyster question, and whatever
they would agree upon he would labor
to have done.
The Committee on Resolutions sub?
mitted their report through Mr. J. B.
Donovan, of Matthews, chairman. Kach
resolution was voted upon as real, and
adopted. The report was as follows :

This second resolution caused quite
:i spirited debate between Messrs.
Carnett, McCandlish. Donovan, ami
others on the one side, and MosSM.
Hughes and Collier on the other. Mr.
Hughes opposed it earnestly, ami toll
the Convention it was going too far:
that If they asked too much of the
Legislature its work would avail
nothing. It was finally adopted on a
roll-call by a vote of '>'.' to 14.
