A prolonged debate ensued, in which the members were divided, practically as they were at tire summer session on the question of choosing a special commis sion to do the work of conforming the Code to the Constitution, and much of the same ground was gone' over' in" the' discussion that was then traversed. Mr. Gardner, led the forces opposed to Sena tor Mann's steering committee proposi tion, ami was strongly supported, by THE RICHMOND T)TSP A TCH-THUESDAY. yOVEMBEB 13, 1902 Messrs. Bland. .of Portsmouth; Folkes and Wallace, of Richmond city: White head, of Norfolk: Settle, of Rappahan nock, and others. Mr. Davirf, of Petersburg: Mr. Cardwell, of Hanova»..and Mr. Southall, of Amelia, championed the Mann joint resolution, and Mr. Edwards, of West Point, and others allied themselves with this trio. Mr. Jennings, of Lynchburg, made the noint of order that the joint resolution was in the nature of an amendment to the rules and should go to the rules com mittee, and Mr. Leake subsequently re newed the point and stated it very clearly, but the speaker ruled that it was not well taken. The house, he said, was competent to act as it deemed best, but if the resolution was 'referred jit would properly go' to the rules committee: At 1:20 o'clock the house, without ac tion on the joint resolution, adjourned on motion of Mi\ T. D. Jennings, until noon to-morrow. The following is an abstract of the bills "and resolutions introduced under Rule 39. 'a1l being referred to the proper com mittees: -PRESENTED AND REFERRED.

Halsey. of Lynchbiirgr, the only new member 'of the body, has been assigned the seat vacated by Sena tor Opic. "Uncle Billy" Wilson,, the custodian and librarian of the senate, had everything in splendid shape for the senators—station ery- pens, ink and everything pertaining to the. work before them. There are few lobbyists on hand— fewer than ever before. This is due to the fact that no officers are Up be elected. Dr. J. D. Pendleton, for a lons time clerk of the Senate, was on the floor yes terday shaking hands with his old friends. Secretary Button, of the senate, and his staff of assistants, were on hand early. They met all demands for information and bills which had been introduced. Former Senator Glass was present at the opening. He spent some time in pre senting Senator Halsey to his old col leagues. .

Patteson, a well-known former member of the house, was an in terested listener to the debate, in that body on the question- of "appointing a steering committee. Mr. Patteson was one of the best representatives Richmond has had in many years. Gwynn T. Shepperd, secretary of the Jamestown Ter-Centenary 'Exposition;, was among the visitors on the floor of the House. He is working- for, a $200, 000 State appropriation. .

C, November 12.— Superintendent Peairs. of Haskell In dian Institute, Kansas, in his annual re port, says that although at times the results of the work of education among the Indians do not satisfy the onlookers, to those who are in the work, and there fore have opportunities to " observe the gradual development of individuals, there is more and more encouragement and sat isfaction. As proof of the permanent, good l-esults of training of the Indians, the report says that of ninety-five grad uates previous to the classes of 1902, at least seventy-seven are at work earning their own living, and in many instances aiding parents, or supporting in a re spectable way a little family of their own." Of the forty-five graduates of the class of 1902, it is stated that there is not one but is qualified to make a record equal to the earlier graduates. The under graduates also are making excellent re cords. The fact, however, that the per centage of successes among under-gradu ates Ts not as large as among graduates is cited as a strong argument in favor, of the continuation of thorough education al work.

November 12.— Vrofessor Samuel M. Lindsay, commis sioner of" education in Porto Rico, and formerly of the University o£. ; Pennsylva nia faculty, reached his home inithis city last- night" from Ponce. He comes to this country to submit his report to President Roosevelt, and to take his family buck to Porto Rico. He spoke with enthusiasm of the educational prospects of the island, and, turning to the recent insular elec tion, said: '.-, , 'The election -went off remarkably well. The insular police proved able and effi cient, and the quiet orderly manner in which the election was conducted in every district of the island reflects credit upon the people of Porto Rico. This was the first real contest, because two years ago, when the first election for a dele gate to Washington and a House of Dele gates m the insular, legislature was.hefd, only one party went to the polls. This time both Republicans and Federals voted in nearly all the precincts, and tho Federal party made a. good showing. The present Republican delegate to Washing ton, Frcderico Degretau, was re-elected-' by a large majority." Professor Lindsay says reports of riot and blodshed in Porto Rico were much exaggerated.. "On tho first registration day, October 14." he said, . "there was much excitement, and some disorder in places, but at no time was there' any danger of disturbances with which the civil government and the police could not cope successfully. Nor were the dis turbances any. 'more serious than those that occur at election times in some parts of nearly every State in the union." HAWAII GOES REPUBLICAN. ••'Prince Cupid" Elected Delegate to Conicrress, Over Wilcox. SAN FRANCISCO, CAL,,. November 12. The steamer Alameda. from Honolulu, brings the news that the recent election in the Territory of Hawiii resulted in. a sweeping Republican, victory. Prince Kalanianaole, popularly known as "Prince Cupid," was elected delegate to Congress, over Robert W. Wilcox, the incumbent, and the Democratic . candidate, by a ma jority of over 2,000." When the. Alameda left- the island port, the- full election returns had' not been received. The Island of Maui had not been heard from, and the exact result of the election of candidates for the Terri torial legislature was uncertain. The legislature will be almost entirely Repub lican, however, as fifteen Republican representatives and five senators are known- to have been elected. When- the Alameda is released from quarantine to-day, a telegram from Gov ernor Dole/to President Roosevelt, an nouncing the result of the election," as given above, will be sent to Washington by thepurser of the steamer. . Prince Kalanianaole. the Congressional delegate-elect, is a full-blooded Hawaiian, "and has in the past been identified vwith the. Home Rule party. When both the Republican and Democratic parties of feredvhim the eandidacy'lfbr the nomina tion of : Territorial 'delegate, he accepted the Republican nomination. Both candi dates instituted' "an active campaign throughout the islands. Wilcox -was elect ed to . : Congress in 1903, defeating Samuel Parker. ~ ■' \\ -.: .. : v-:- : .-.. ■•■--: .
