The House debated the William? nhtl coinpai-t lire Insurance measure from 12:30 o'clock lo 2 P. M.. and it went OVcr as a. Special and continuing order for 12:30 O'clock to-day. There were many antl-clgarette and Mann bin peti? tions offered In the House? and tb?-y were referred. THE SENATE. Proposed Memorial to Congress Passed By. Few moments sufficed for preliminary business, and the S<-nnte was early at work on tho calendar; The proponed memorial to Congrswi in regard to rivers niul harbors was again passed by. A se? ries of bills appropriating certain funds for tin* payment for tin? Caplt'il furni? ture and for maklnc additional Improve? ments were taken np out of their order and pa*se?l. Th?- Senate was then for some nine engaged again In s discus? sion of ?a.?em?'iits. ft subject threshed out at some length early In the se?s|on. Severn! senators spoke. Including Mr. Chapman, of Oroeno: ilr. Maeh'en, of Alexandria; Mr. Thomas, of l.ynehburg; Judge I'hlegur, of Montgomery, after which; by h vote ?if l?> to :. the Senate r?.fus?-d to engross Hie Chapman bill, al? lowing municipalities the right to con? demn an easement; which bill tior? thc adverse report ot the Committee for Court? of Justice.

Tito ?lehnte wan very thorough. Advocates of the bllL Includ? ing Mr. Campbell, of Bedford; Sir. pill? ion, ?if Warren: Captain Pattcson, of Buckingham, and Major RIsou. of Pilt sylvnnln, declared, among other things, that tli?. present law presuming fraud In transactions between hushaiul and wife, nnd yet forbidding ?he latter to testify, was an outrage and an Indli-ttnent of the married women of Virginia, virtually stamping them nil with an Iniquitous willingness to perjure themselves for the pak?? Ot fraudulently retaining their prop? erty. The senators spoke earnestly, and appealed to the body to remove this stigma and permit, a? the Campbell bill contemplates, the testimony of husband nnd wife for and against each other in certain cases. Several of the heavyweight lawyers of the Senate, incluiling Judge . Phlegm-, of Montgomery, nmi Judge Mann, of Nottoway, lined up against the bill. Engrossed the Bill. To the surprise of many, the report of the Courts Committee was rejected and _a majority of three member? engrossed the Campbell measure.

After a spirited discussion the Phlegar bill relntlng to voting trusts was re? committed In order that representatives of the Southern Railway might have op? portunity to appear In opposition to the measure, which Is regarded as one of the most important offered at this ses? sion. Strenuous objection was made to recommittal, but agreement was finally reached through an expressed utider ?tnndtng that the Committee for' Courts of Justice would act on the bill to-day, und that tho bill, retaining Its placo on CURES WORST CASES OF CATARRH Jutt Breathe Hyomel Four Times a Day and Be Cured. >?ot until Ifyoinet was discovered, had It been possible to any truthfully that a remedy for catarrh was known..

HOUSE PROCEEDINGS. Body Discusses Williams Insur? ance Bill and Passes It By. Delegate Churchman, of Augusta, call? ed the Mouse to order at II o'clock, and prayer was offered by Rev. Mr. Haley, th.- member from Louisa. There were a large number of Mann bill petitions, ?and others were handed in praying the passage of the Ould antl ?igan-tto bill. They were referred, and when the morning hour had expired, the clerk called the ?-alendar. A number of Senate hills reported from committees were advanced to the calendar, before ttie special order of the day was reached. Mr. Lion called ?P Senate bill creating fi?-e new judicial ?-Ircuits for the State, and It was discussed at some length. Dr. Powell opposed the consideration of the measure out of it? order, and ho was supported by Mr. McRae and other*?. Mr. Lion finally withdrew his motion and said he would allow the bill to take its chances on the calendar, in its regular order. The Thomas Senate bill permitting the various magisterial districts to borrow money for roail purposes was discussed at some length. Mr.. Gregory contenmng, along with Mr. Gwathmcy and others that the bin is unconstitutional. Mr. C. C. Taliaforro and others took the oppo? site ?.-lew and ? thero was much further discussion. Pending final disposition of the bill, the clerk laid the special order 1/efore the House, which has for its object the re enacting of th? Wliai'ton untl-compnet firo insurance law and Its patron, Mr. Martin Williams, moved to dispense with Its constitutional readings. Mr. Williams Opens. This motion was adopted ami Mr. "Wil? liams took the floor to make his ooen Ing statement for the hill. He explained that it was an exact copy of the old li.iarton law, anTl after some brief references to the effect of the repeal, of the latter, Mr. "Williams said he woual submit some further remarks in closing ? the discussion in - favor of tho bill. Mr. Cox, ot^Rlehmond, followed In op? position to the measure,' and saitl it came into the House with an adverse recom? mendation from the Committee on Gen? eral Laws. He. did not believe thero was any real demand for re-enacting tho Wharton law, and when hn came to dis? cuss tho (tuostion ot lire insurance rates, there wero several colloquies between himself and other members. Mr. Lee deslr??d Mr. Cox to nnswer why the Southeastern Tariff Association kept In tho three-fourths value olnuso in fire ?policies, and the latter said tho pending bill' had nothing to do with the subject. The member from Richmond undertook to show that the passage of tho bill would, be a distinct blow at all the homo Insur? ance companies in Virginia, and lie said the penalties of the law ut pr?sont wore ample for the protection of the rights of the assured. Mr. Royall Replies. Mr. Cox contended that a fairer sys? tem of rules had been given the people under tho Southeastern Tariff Association than had obtained under the old Wliiiri ton law, nnd he was quite sure that 'tlm Culon general insurance measurx), already passed by the House, threw ample safe-, guards around the rights of the pen?la' In regard to Insurance, ? Mr. Roynll, Republican floor leader of tho House, strongly advocated the hills, lie contended that ratos In his section | had gone up and up, in his section under the regime of the Southeastern Tariff Aa fcoclatl?h, and that his people wero loudly clamoring for relief. Messrs. Cox and Royall became engaged In a sharp colloquy over a clipping from an insurance Journal, read by the latter, referring to what the Legislature would probably do with Insurance matters, and when it was over Mr. Old, of Norfolk, spoke against tho bill. His People Favor It. He read several letters and resolutions from his people, asking lilm to vote against the hill, and said: "I assert here on tho floor of this house that the people of Norfolk are unani? mously against the passage of this bill. because present conditions are favorable to the assured, and favorablo to the young home companies backe?l by local capital." Mr. Jennings, of Lynchburg, followe?] In opposition* and said the business men, Board of Trade ami other organizations In his city did not desire any change. He declared that rates and conditions in his city were more favorable to the as? sured than under the Wharton law. and he earnestly asked that the bill be re? jected. Mr. Pettlt spoke for the bill, and he declared that something was radically wring with the present system. He nail letters denouncing the S. E. T. A. ?s a trust, and when he, at 2 o'clock, concluded his remarks, the chair was ; vacated until 3:30 'o'clock. Afternoon Session. When th? chair was resumed the spe ? in I order Was passed by, an?! measures ' ov.-r which there were no contests taken up. A great many bills were ordered t,. their engrossment. Init when a con ti sted measure was reached one objection carrjed It over. The Ould anti-cigarette bill was con? sidered at some length, and was then passed on motion of. Mr. Reed. There Were several amendments ofTered nnd re? jected, one being that of Mr. Curie?, making it n misdemeanor for any minor to have In his possession cigarettes or cigarette papers, and fixing the punlsh iii? nt nt .-? fine of $1 for each offense. When th'- inn came up amending the i general educational bill, Mr. Gwathmcy moved to amend 3>y providing for tho adoption of the single l>ook list, and it was rejected, and the bill engrossed. Mr. Gwathmcy made a strong anil eloquent speech In favor of his amendment nnd was often loudly cheered. The member I tried t" get a roll call on bis motion ti> amend, but there were "not a sufficient number up." Senate Bills Passed. To'authorize the Mayor nnd Council of th? city of Wllllamsburg-.
