It ecu pit ji m 11on at the Law Mn!t« or*' Work From 1883 to 1887. Washington, March 3. — Congress, which ended its existence at noon ta-day, has afforded striking illustrations of the constant increase in tbe volume of legis lation demanding the attention of Con gress, which has been going on for tbe last three or four Congresses. More bills were introduced in both Horses, more committee repirts made, more bills passed, more became laws and more were vetoed than ever before. A number of the bills enacted into laws were old and familiar clHimants for legislative favors. In this category belong the Presidential fcueoessiou bill, the Electoral Count bill, the luter-Siuto Commerce bill, and the bill for the relief of Fitz-Jobn Porter. The Forty-ninth Congress commenced its session on the ■tihof December, ISBS, and was in ses sion until the s:Uuf August, when it ad journed until the 6th aud continued iv session until its o'ois to-day, coverkg a total period of ten months and twenty six days. Id this limo the Benate was in station 224 days, and the House '251 days. There were introduced in the House during this time 11,268 bills, and 2(53 joint resolutions, on which ove, 5000 reports were made, being sr\eral thousand more bills and over one thousand more reports than were made in the Forty-eighth Congress, which had iv its turn beaten the record. In the Senate there were introduced 3357 bills and 118 joiut resolutions, on which 1!)00 written reports were made, being upwards of 500 more b.lls, and over 400 more reports thau iv the record of the Forty-eighth Cougrtss. The total number of laws enacted was approxi mately 1431, of' which 1093 originated in the House, nnd 338 in the Senate. Two hundred and fitly four of these became laws by the expiration of the Constitu tional ten-days' limitation. Fifty bills failed to becme laws, owing to the ad 3&»irnment of Congress; one of them at th 3 close of the first session. There weie 132 bills vetoed by the President; more ins<auces of the exercise of the Presiden tial prerogative of the veto than had oc curred from the foundation of the gov ernment down to tbe beginuing of this Congress. Of the vetoed bills, ninety four originated in tbe House aud thirty eight in the Senate. Oi private bills, that granting a tension to Joseph Ro meiser, and of public bills, that provid ing for the erectiou of government build- ings al Dayton, Ohio, were the only ones tbat succeeded in passing both Houses over the President's veto. Several others obtained tbe rerpiisite two-thirds vote in the Senate only to fait in tbe House. The death-roll of this Congress was also an extraordinary one, com prising the unprecedented number of thirteen names iv the house and Sen ate. Following is tbe list of the more, important House bills which have become laws: The bill to forfeit the Atlautio and Pacific Railroad land grant; to in crease the pensions of widows and de pendent relations from §6 to $12 per month; to abolish certain fees for official services to American vessels, and to amend the shipping laws ithe Dingley shipping bill); to amend the Thurman act; increase of tbe naval establish ment; to pension Mexican War Veterans; to prohibit the passage of local or special laws in the Territories;- to create tbe Judicial District of Southern California; for the erection of public buildings at Los Angeles, California; for the pur chase of a site for several Federal build ings at San Francisco, California.

The rising at Rustcbuck has been entirely suppressed. All insurgent officers were either take n prisouers, killed or wounded in battle with the loyal troops, or were drowned.

The very attractive bill effereel by the Booth Company at the Grand Opera House last night, filled that theuter with another splendid audience. The curtain rose ou 'The Merchant of V<nice, as arranged for Mr. Booth's performan ces. It is a very judicious condensa tion of tbe piece from text; but preserve;, in all its strength aud beauty, tho main plot of the drama. We were prepared to liud Mr. Booth's rendition of "Shylock," a study of interest and power; but we confess that our expectations were more thau realized. He elevated the charac ter of the Jew from that of a mere re pulsive, grasping, covetous usurer, with out any of the higher or more ennobling instincts, to that of a mau careful ot his wealth and ambitious to increase it, but at the same time imbued with a strergth of character and a reso luteness of purpose—cruel, implacable and determined—that raised him to a position of admiration; not of the lofti est type, but still grand iv its inthxi hil ty of purpose. No oue could make "Sbylock" an amiable oharaoter. It would fail, because it would be|unaatu ral. But Booth invested it witb au in terest which redeemed the sordid faults of a nature from which we could expect none of the higher or more en nobling attributes. Greatness is as pos sible in tho evil as in the virtuous pas siens; and Booth made "Shylock" great in bis hatreds and antipathies; great in h,s determined purpose of re venge; great .in his rigidity of religious fixity; great in his contempt for the creed which had been that of the perse cutors of himself and his tribe. In the trial scene he elisplayed his marvelous powers of exemplifying in his looks and facial changes the workings of tile varied pas nious that inflamed his heart. His tran sitions were kaleidoscopic and as legible tis print; and tho stage tusiucss in this scene was a great improvement upon the regulation routine work we have hereto fore been useel to. The support last night waa far better than on the previous evenings, and the piece passed off with the fiost complete success. In 'oiitraat of the tragical cast of the Mtrc;>nnt of Venice, the evening was eked out with a moat excell -nt stage version of Katharine and Petruccio. The vim and spirit that w ere thrown into this light comedy by Mr. Booth gave the audience a hue sample of the capacity of the groat actor as a come dian. He made it a most merry and en joyable morceau, and was cleverly as sisted by Miss Emma Vaders as "Kath arine." Ups and Downs of Bouma nia's Bevolt.

Other Witnesses. The taking of testimony in tbe Con. greasional contest was resumed before Notary Owens at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. General Vandever was absent but theattorneys as mentioned yesterday were on band. Republican County Clerk Dunsmoor was put upon the stand aud was cross-examined by Vandever's attorneys. The cross-examination failed to shake his testimony in the least. After this he was sabjected to a re direct examination in which he stated tbat had the Deputy Assessors been Republicans he would most assuredly have told them that the lists of enrolled names they brought in could not be legally regis tered, and won 11 have advised the Deputy Assessors to file their oaths and re-register the names. As they were Democratic officials he let them go on, knowing tbat the lists of men brought in would not be allowed to vote. The Herald is desirous of publi-bing the tesdmony of Mr. Dunsmoor as full as possible, and to-day first prints his testimony at the afternoon session of Thursday and follows it up by his re direct examination of yesterday.

Q. When did you receive from the printer the last supplemental list? A. I think about the SOth. Let us look at this one minute (witness referring to Great Register). Q. That is oertified by you on the 28th, I think? A. H ell, let's see; this is on the 20th day of October. Well, that does not contain all the supplements, because there are some that run down as late as the 30th. Q. . Yes, sir, three supplements to the City Register ? A. Yes, sir. i). This, that you have in your hand there, aud certified by you, is of date the SOth of October? A. This is the 20th of October. Q. Twentieth? A. Yes, sir. (j. When were they distributed through the country? A. The Registers were sent out, I think ou the 20th. Mr. Campbell. Now you have got down there about tbe first ami last sup plement; it don't appear what they are; there isn't anything to indicate anything, in fact. News Notes. Mr. Robarts. I am referring to the portion of the Great Register which was certified to by Mr. Dunsmoor on the 20th of October. It bears his certificate of date the 20th of October. (To the wit nes:) Does it not? A. Yes, sir. Q. I uek you now when that was dis tributed to the different Boards of Elec tion? A. They were sent by Wells-Fargo un the 26th aud 27tb. y. But none j nor to the 26th ? A. I dou't think so. Now then, when was the supple ment, supplemental Register succeeding this main Register yon have spoken of, that is of the 'iOth of October, when were they sent to tho different Boards of Elec tion throughout the county? Mr. Campbell. The first supplement you ore speaking of, now ? Mr. Robarts. Yes, sir. A. I think the supplements were all after that. My recollection is that they were sent either the 30th or 31st. Q. Then a portion of the Register was distributed to the various precincts throughout the county prior to tbe sup plement ? A. Well, they were sent to the vari ous precincts, yes, sir, Q, Prior to the supplement, or were they all sent together ? A, Could not have all been sent to gether. In some instances I think they were all sent together. Fur instance, in tbe city I think tb,-y were all dis tributed together, because they were sent out; they were delivered along on Satur day, and some ou Monday, differeut pre cincts,and I think iv this one instance that supplements, as stated by Mr. Lynch (Eighth Precinct), were not down there until Mr. A. N. Hamilton took them down there. We had supposeel that each package in the ten products con tained all the supplements, but it seems to me that about 8 o'clock, when he got there to the precinct he olalmed tbat the supplements were not there. He got a team and came right back and got it —so he says. Q. By Mr. Campbell. You say it was supposed that all the supplements were sent? A. Yes, sir. Q, By Mr. Robarts. In the city? A. I instructed the deputies to tie up the requisite number of Great Registers, poll-hats and tally-lists, which are re quired by the Statute, and to deliver them to the proper persons in the pre cincl; aud some of them I turned over myself, that is, to parties that came af ter that. CRIMINALITIES. Q. Ido not doubt that at all. What I am trying to get at, aud I have not got an answer yet, Mr. Dunsmoor—you may not have understood me—was this. Was this book of registration certified on the 20th of October, 1886, delivered to the Hoards of Election throughout the county simultaneously with the supplement? Were they all sent together to the different precincts or was one portion sent before and the other subsequently? A. Well, in some instances one por tion was sent before, because I know that at Santa Ana I sent down to Mr. Freeman for him to hold the first lot that I had sent until he received ihe supple ments, so as to save two flips; and then he procured a team and delivered them to the different precincts there. V In what other precinct did you do that, did you send tbe main list first and then subsequently the supplemental? A. Idu not recollect. Q. As a matter of fact Santa Ana ia a Republican precinot, isn't it; returns a Republican majority ? A. It seems so, yes, sir. But then this that I om speaking of as sent to Mr. Freeman were for outside precincts. Q. Well, what outside precincts did you send him any for ? A. I think it was Yorba or Garden Grove or Westminister. Q. Then the balance of the precincts IB the county, the main lists and tl* supplemental, were all sent together along with the poll lists ? A. I don't say that they were. Q. Well, can you tell us in which ones they were nol? A. No, I cannot. I simply hold N ells-Fargo's receipts at differeut days running from the 20tb, 27tb; that is in the one book that I find. Q. Well, are those packages you sent them, running from the 26th, 27th and 28th—what were in those packages if you know? A. Why, all of the registration that had been priutod up to that time. Q. Precisely; including both the main and supplemental list? A. Yes, sir—no, no; not the—could not contain the list which was certified to on tbe 28th. Q. The one that was certified to, then, on the 20th? A. Yes, sir; contained those that were certified to on the 20th. The first includes all up to and including the sec ond. Q. Tbat is certified to by you? A. Tbat is certified to 011 the 20th. Q. . All right. That is the main one? A. Yes, sir. The second, up to and including October 27th, was certified to on tbe 30th day of October. Then there is a supplemental list on the 30th of October; there was a list of a few names that was certified by, I think, Mr. Brewer of Vernon, that I got out a supplemental list for. Q. Now, you have got the dates of those; I want to osk you, was the list that was certified to by you on the 20th of October and the one certified by you on the 30th of October sent out together to the other precincts excepting Santa Ana? Ido not attempt to deny it. Then this contest of Vogeie waa brought nnd the .judge tuatructed Mr. Vegele that he could register, and he went down stain and availed himself, Q. Yon bud nn rqual opportunity, did you not Mr. Dunsmoor, of deciding whether the enrollment of tho Araewore wi.a legal or otherwise prior to tbe 27th? You bnew that the Assessors had not tiled their appointments in your office? A. Yes, sir. Q. Well, why did you not inform them then, or Mr. Bilderrain, their principal, that their enrollment would be illegal because their appointments were not filed in > our office? A. I intended to register tbe namea that were brought in by those parties, and so informed Mr. White. But I afterwards, from the District Attorney, received advice that it was not proper to register them. Q. What called your attention to that fact, and what made you seek the advice ef the District Attorney at that time? A. Because there was a good deal of feeling evidenced by Mr. White. Ha claimed tbat my office was a ministerial one, nnd that I had no right to take judicial action. Q. Knowing, as you did, the law, then, that the Deputy Assessors would have to tile their appointments prior to being able to take or enroll parties, why did you not then so inform them before tbe 2titb, or on tbe 26th, and give them a chance to re-register the votes? A. I don't think tbe question waa— was brought up until about the '26th. Q. Was it net a fact, sir, really, tbat occasioned your idea in that matter, or your determination not to do so, the fact waa that all the Deputy Assessors were Democrats? A. They could not have been, be ! cause they could not have been printed on the 27th, because there were about 450—there were about 450 names turned iuon the 27th. A. No, sir, for I tell you juntas I stilted before, that at the time Mr. White and Mr. Del Valle were there I fully in tended to place them upon tbe Register. Q. Well, then, you intend, d to pat them upon the Register then, kuowing it was illegal; is that it'/ A, No,sir, not knowing it whs illegal, beciuse Mr. White advised me that it was proper, and having confidence in Mr. White's judgment, he being an at torney of standing iv the community. Q. Wheu was that confidence first shaken? A. After Mr. White's—after consult ing the Distriot Attorney, after having this conversation with Mr. White. Q. When was this conversation with, the District Attorney? A. Well, about tbe 20:h or 27'h; I think it was the 27th; it may have been thu 26th. y But you say yon published tbe no tice of the extention of time for registra tion in tlie Express/ A. Yes sir. Q. And yon have said, I believe, tbat thai was a paper of Republican princi ples, did you not? A. I did so. Q. There was also in this town a Democratic paper, wasn't then. ? A. Yes, sir. Q. Of equal circulation with the Re press ! A. Yes, sir. Q. Well, why did you not put the notice in that paper also ? A. I don't think that I put the notice in but the one paper. I put it in tbe Evening Express. Q. Then you knew all the time dur ing the period in which these Assessors were enrolling men, parties, throughout the county for the purpose of registra tion, you knew that they had not tiled their appointment in the office—in your office ? A. I didn't know any such thing. Nearly all of the appointments of the Asses ors had been filed in the office. ',' lam referring now to the ones whoso enrollment you rejected; X am re ferring to the parties whose enrollment you rejected. A. I kuew that some of them had not. Q. And knowing that fact and know ing that their registration or enrollment would be illegal, you kept silent? A. There were many of them that I did not know were appointed until after the appointment came in. Q, Well, those that you did know, sit? A. Well ? Q. You kept silent? A. I did; I did excepting as I tell you with Mr. White. Q, Do you know C. L. Northcraft in this town? A. I do. Q. Well, when were theysent out to the different precincts? A. They must have beeu sent out Int. 1 than that. Q. Well, when? A. Probably as late as tbe 30th. Q. The3o:h. Well, then, the nimes that had been sent in, for instance, by Mr. MoNish? A. Yes, sir. Q. He having received that supple mental list on the 30th, as you say, if he did receive it—on the 30th you tent it out—thon it was impossible for him to re-register them. A. J,think those names of Mr. Mo- Mish were hauded in on the 27th. Q, Yes, sir, the night of the 27th? A. Yes, sir. Q Then when did you determine to reluse them? A. Th—l think about the middle of the 28th. Q. Middle of tho 28tb? A. Or the 29th; I am not positive as to that date. Mr. White, and I think Mr. Del Valle and some other gentle man, I do not recollect who it was, came iv and this question arose as to whether those names would go on the Great Reg ister; and Mr. White cited to me cer tain sections of the Code, and claimed that they ought to go upon the Great Register, anil I, having confidence in Mr. White's judgement in the matter, told him that they would go upon it, and I certainly intended to place them upon the Register, Q. What date was that, sir, you give him that assurance ? A. I think that was about the 27th. Q. Are you suie it was not the 26th ? A. Well, it m ght have been. Q. 20ch or 27th. You also assured Air. Del Valle, did you not? A. Mr. Del Valle was present. Q. Mr. Bilderrain ? A. 1 dou't know whether Mr. Bilder rain was there or not. Now theu, I went to Mr. Rilderrain's office; he had first sent over certain lists without tbe affidavits. Q. Excuse me, sir, what date was that? Please fix the date. A. I think it was the 27th. Q. 27th of Ootober? A. Vis, sir; and I told him that I could not receive them unless the affi davits accompanied them. Well, he said that his attorney had instructed him to not Bend the affidavits. At 5 o'olock I went to his office and told him that Q. The same day ? A. Yes sir, and told him that I posi tively refused to place the names upon the Register unless the affidavits accora panied them. And then he reiterated what his attorneys had advised him, and I cited the sections of the Code requiring that the affidavits should be sent iv, and I told him that I would be nt my of fice in the eveniig. At a there were several gentlemen in the office at the time that I was there —Mr. Bilderrain's cffioe, now. And he said that be would see his attorneys. And then, after 7 o'clock, I came over to the Clerk's office, and Mr. Bteunerhas set came in with tbe sheets without the affidavits, and I told him tbat I would not take them unless the affidavits were there, and he got somewhat excited about it, aud I told him it was useless to oreato any disturbance or get excited over the matter, and he finally cooled down and went off and brought in the affidavits later iv the evening. Q. The night of the 27th? A. The night of the 27th. And on the mornirg of the 28th I had Mr. Ward, and I think Mr. Whitney, go through the lists and we fouud tbat there were a number where tho appoint ments of the parties who had taken these affidavits had not been tiled, and on several there were evidences of the whole matter having been taken in one hand, and in others dates had been changed, and then I consulted the Dis trict Attorney, and he said clearly it was not right to register 'these parties, and acting upon his judgment iv the matter I refused to enter them. Q. The District Attorney was also a Republican? A. Yes, sir, ' Q. Candidate for re-election? A. Yes, sir; and acting upon the ad vice of the District Attorney I withheld the names. Q. Well, you didn't come to that con clusion, then, to reject the lists handed in by Mr. Bilderrain and supplemented with the affidavits, until October 28 h ? A. I think it was October the 28th or possibly the 20th, because we didn't have an opportunity of examining those affidavits until the 28th. Q. Do you remember having a con versation with Mr. Sam Hamilton at your office on the afternoon of the 28th of October? A. I have had a good many con versations with him. Q. He was one of the Deputy As sessors, whose enrollment was rejtoted, was he not? A. He was. Q. Did you not, assure him on tho afternoon of the 28th that the names handed in by the Assessors would be put upon the Register? A. Quite possible thatl did. As I slated before, I intended lo place them upon the list, and so informed Mr. White, aud Q. Do you remember having a conver sation with him ou or about the sth of October ? A. I do. Q. Wdl you please detail it as far as you can remember. Mr. Dunsmoor? A. Yes, sir. Northcraft came into the office and said that he was thinking about going to the northern portion of the county, and he wanted to know if I would appoint him as a deputy for reg istration purposei. Aud that was before thu question of a supplemental registra tion hud beeu taken before the Judge. Ward consulted him in regard to it. Q. Fifth of October, it wa*? A. Well, yes. And I told Charlie that I would just as soon appoint hitn as anybody else, and asknd him when he was going, and be said he didn't know, and I told him it was a question as t > whether the names should begothn upon tbe Great Register, that is tbe printed Great Register, but whenever he got ready to go to come in and see me. And he said that he could not toll when he would go, but I told him whenever be did get ready to come in and see me. Q. Did he not tell you at tbat time tbat there was a large uuniber of voters at a place called Alpine, who were not on the Register? A. No, he did not tell me there was a large number; he said there were a few up there. There cannot be a great many at Alpine. (J. Well, there waa over twenty. Was he accompanied by anybody? A. I think Major Bonebrake was with him. Q. Well, did yon not assure him at that time aud tell him tbe following word*, or words to this effect: That it would be useless for you to appoint him as Deputy Clerk to registerthose parties) because the registration had closed ou the 2d of October, and that although their names would go upon the Register, yet they would not be allowed to vote? A. I don't—l don't think that I used that language; but at that time I was not aware that we could have a supplemental registration; that is, that there would be a supplemental registration, and I don't thiuk at that time that I knew of the Judge's decision regarding the vot ing upon certificates. Q. Did he not, then, upon receiving your answer, go with Major Bonebrake to Judge Bruuson? A. I don't know. Mr. Northcraft would have been appointed if he had come back when he was ready to go up, as I told him whenever he got re idy to go up to come and see me. As a matter i i fact I did u>t refuse to srpnlnt him i CONTINUED ON EIGHTH PAUB, NO. 134.
