Rajeeted OMtBiualMiitm wtu aol M re* FRIDAY...DECEMBER 18, 1885. The Snoceaeion. 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? tion. 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. The Kelley Cane. The people of Virginia will enjoy the leading of the following article from the Providence Journal. Our contemporary ii*rs superior to party comiderations. and awards to Mr. Kkii.ky, Mr. Bay ard, and President Cleveland tin credit to which they are entitled in th( premises. We quote : Ch t Kr it and Government.?Tb correspondence of Secretary Heyan with the representatives of the Govern menu of Italy and Austria with refer ene* relatively to tho appointment o Kailey, of Virginia, as Minister first t< one and neat to the other of tba Govern UMats, is interesting reading, as show in how. at thia late day, freedom of speec ia abhorred in one and liberty of cot: science denied in another of the Powei of CnotlnBOtal Europe. The Italia Government objected to the reception < Mr. Kailey because of certain politici utterances, or alleged utterances, of hi made fat 1871. The Secretary of Sta' took tba ground that thia Governmei Raving Mlected to represent it as Mini tar to Italy " a gentleman of the big eat Barwon al character and intelligent and one who entertains no other mb nant towards your Governmrat th of ontira respect and friendship ; further devolves on thia Govei 1 it ia for the Italian Govei st to exerdM ita discretion ia acce< lng Mr. Keilor as the representen' as Minister of the United States, or refuM him bia exeywaivr?a right p taming to the sovereignty of the Govei Mut of Italy. At thia point appears Mr. Keiley ii letter to the Secretary of State, which be, while not at all pretending bo indifferent to the settlement of I matter, puta himself absolutely at I datpoaeJ of tba Secretary and Pit dent It wu once Mid by a ?? ery al Premier of England that ia appoint] a judge ho Bought, in the first pla far a gentleman; if be know a lit law, m moah tba better.

In thia cam tba o Jaotien ta Mr. Kailey wm a politic ?waa. Ia that af Auntriait will beae it waa a raligtoas objection, and, thai feta, Basra mterestiag and unportai It deetaavdad, kt tact, the deaieioe I ?or Gararaaaait wbatawU ia argaaua nar "nivtl mb Beran " emly, ar lt bb witta* or sBTsfiBTBfiii ta dlacBja ai set epos the religioug eenUmcnte of lu citiseoa. 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 main question. 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 exercise th.rcof. 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? stance." 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 state. _ 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 amendment. The people of Virginia when the next make a new Constitution have th g ?., power to disfranchise all persons wh ,r engaged in the late war between tb tl States, on either tide. The fourteen! i, amendment is a part of the Federi * Constitution, and was ratified sim '* General Lawton's disabilities wei t,. removed. Under that amendment Ge g, era! La wton wag disfranchised. Ind ti- it his disabilities have been remove tn _. t? ? ' Adulterating Artioles ol Food. n. The Pittsburgh Dispatch, in coi ,t- morning upon the movement in Ne re, York to compel manufacturers of ole 10 margarine to color that product so th there would be no chance of its beii mistaken for butter, says : i? "The law should protect the publ ia from being imposed upon by fraudule to end adulterated compounds in all articl he of food. Aa this is the biggest ai he I most notorious among the many chea si- of that nature it ig to be hoped that t da lew will make ita effort to abolish it og thorough success." se, Wo once beard an eminent divi to declare from the pulpit that he woo ^ faror hanging any mao "as high ?, Haman " who wag caught edulterati articles of food and palming thom off < the public ss genuine; and we do n know that hie language waa a bit t atroag. Talk About the Weather. Whet disgruntles the orgeat mo tbes aay thing glee when they ooma cossidtr tho President's msaeage U tl i Basket so allueiob to tl mr southern question nor to the color line. It wee exceedingly unkind in Mr. Clbvbland to Ignore the two great issues that bare constituted the politi? cal capital of the Republican party for j gars, but tho feet ia he teemt to hare gotten it into his head that he was elected President of the whole country, and that it is not t pgrt of the President's business to errsy section against sec? tion and race against race. Nor is thia all. Recent events would seem to in? dicate that a majority of tho people are 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 to???talk about the weather."

Were the Bulgarians asleep. Wonder what has become of poor little Bill Chandler? He hasn't afforded the public any fun for a month. The fact that no one bas tried to prove that Vandkbbilt wis insane excites a suspicion that his will is iile fd. m One objection to making Alaska a penal settlement is that Canada an? swers the purpose without expense to this Government. The Philadelphia Press says : " The Richmond Dispatch says that thc Vir? ginia Democrats would enjoy seeing John Sherman defeated for re? election simply because he went into that State last fall and spoke for honest elections." The genius of the Press for Fairy stories is something remark? able. * Personal. Philip F. Brown will have the man? agement of the Markham House, At? lanta, Ga., until the 1st of May next, when he will return to the Blue Ridge Springs. Robertll. Coleman, the wealthy iron man of Lebanon, will throw open his residence on Christmas-day to all of his workmen and their families. An enor? mous Christmas-tree in the parlor will contain a present for each of his work? men's children. Senator Evarts usually writes his speeches out in full, and. then going into a room by himself, he says them over until he is a perfect master of their elaborate periods. He is a failure as a five-minute, off-hand speaker. He is ponderous or nothing. Dr. McLean, who was deposed from his pastorate in St. Paul, Minn., for alleged scandalous conduct, has just been discharged from a dime museum, in which he ofliciated as a mesmerizer, for calling a visitor -la condemned liar." The deposition seems to have been timely. Senator Logan denies that he is to wilfully antagonize the Administration. To tho Washington correspondent of the New York Wirld he said on Tues? day : M I shall oppose only the continua? tion of men that I would oppose if nomi? nated under a Republican Administra? tion. That is the whole of my posi? tion." Mr. Labouchere, writing of the late Alfonso, gives an odd incident in his personal experience. He was visiting Madrid. M The tombs of the Spanish Kings," he tells us, M had been opened. I had a courier with me who was a friend of their guardian, so he showed us the exposed monarchs. As wo were look? ing at Charles V. he stooped down and handed the courier a pinch of the dead Emperor's beard, and offered SMI one. Not caring for these sort of mortuary spoils, I declined, but I suppose that, had I accepted it, many would have re? garded it as a curiosity if I had offered it to them." I., n.nil tomlins'* Funeral. [By telegraph to the Dispatch.) 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 acknowledging the frailties of Genera 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 eral Toombs joined the Metho dist Episcopal Church three year 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 proachable. This place, where he ha always lived, mourns his death like great family, and old and young, whit and black, in one common bereavemen followed to its last resting-place all tht was mortal of Georgia's greatest orato and most majestic intellect.

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 Iglesias administered as the Executive of the Government, throughout Peru excepting where the revolutionary lead er. Caceres, held authority by force o military occupation. In the early part of the present monti tho startling intelligence was receiver ihat General Caceres had proven victo rious over President Iglesias. Th< former besieged the latter, whose troop! occupied the palace, the cathedral, am the Archbishop's house, with othei buildings on the Plaza, nt Lima. Gene ral Caceres demanded that Iglesia' should abdicate and permit the holdinf. of a general election. He then de livered an attack from the Plaza Boli var, about six blocks away, which h< had fortified. After some lightinj Iglesias surrendered and hostilitie: ceased. A provisional President wa named, and a commission formed ti direct public affairs ami hold the clcc tions. A general amnesty was de dared. The leader who thus overturned th< power of Iglesias is about fifty years o age. He was born at Ayacu< ho, and i the son of a colonel of the army o Chili. His mother was a Peruvian, am his father spent the latter years of hi life in Peru. Thc mother had Indiai blood in her veins, and from her Ca ceres inherited much of the Indian dis position and character which have givci him his popularity among the montenoro or mountaineers who have followed hi standard in thc struggle At an earl; age Caceres entered the army, and having by his courage and military ca pacify gained the patronage of Presi 'lent Castilla, was sent to Kurope t learn thc art of war in the French am German military schools. Upon hi return he was detailed for duty as ai engineer. NS hen the war with Chi! broke out he was made a general n division. LOUIS I'A STE lit.

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 : ffceafard. 1.

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. :(.

Mr. Collier offered as a substitute: BttaJgast That no dredging he legalize, in any of the watara of the Slate of Vir Kima.
