FITFY-FIRST CONGRESS.
Filibustering Kept Up in
the House.
BULES SOON TO BE REPORTED..
The Samoan Treaty Ratified by the
Senate—Mr. Carlisle's Address
to the Country.
[Associated Press Dispatches to tho-Herald.
Washington, February 4. —That the
Democrats did not consider themselves
yet vanquished, and that they proposed
to thro v every obstacle to thu transac
tion of business until rules were adopted
for Ihe government of the House, was
shown by their demand for the reading
of yesterday's jouruai in full this morn
ing. Tho reading having been completed,
McKinley moved that the journal be ap
proved and demanded the previous ques
tion. The previous question was ordered:
Yeas 165, nays 0, a number of Demo
crats being entered on the journal as
present and not voting.
Springer questioned the correctness of
the tally, but when, in response to the
Speaker's request, he expressed his in
ability to point out any individual in
stance of eiror, no objection was made
to the announcsnient of the vote,
but several Democrats kept a
strict count on the vote ou
the approval of the journal. The jour
nal was approved, yeas liilJ, nays none,
a constitutional quorum being counted
by the Speaker.
Springer moved to adjourn, suggesting
that this was a proper time to enter such
a motiou, and on this occasion the motion
waH entertained by the Speaker, only to
be defeated by a vote of yeaa 114, nays'
161.
The Speaker then proceeded to lay be
fore the House Senate bills for reference,
and among them one for the relief of
the Treasurer ol the United States, from
the amount :.ow charged to him and de
posited with the several States. This
bill the Speaker referred under the rules
to tho committee on ways and means.
Bland moved that the bill be referred
to the committee on appropriations.
The Speaker at first declined to enter
tain Bland's motion, but after debate said
thai for the present the chair would fol
low tbe ruling of the last House.
Springer demanded the reading of the
bill, and expressed his ability to rhow by
ptrliamentary practice that the demand
should be complied with.
The Speaker ignored Springer, but th:>
latter was indefatigable, and finally the
Speaker directed the reading of the bill.
Bland's motion was defeated, yeas 9,
noes 151, a quorum being counted by the
Speaker.
Flower moved that the bill be re
ferred to the committee on judiciary;
defeated, yeas !)4, noes 135. For
the first time in several days
this was not a strict party
vote. When the result was announced
McKinley moved the reference of the bill
to the committee on ways and means,
and upon that motion demanded tho pre
vious question.
McCreary then moved to adjourn, but
the Speaker declined to entertain the
motion.
Tbe Spaaker said that ordinarily a
motion to adjourn was in order, but the
situation of the House was such as to
render it improbable that tho House de
sired to take such action. As the pro
ceedings today had been of such a char
acter aa those of the preceding days, it
was evident to the Chair that these mo
tions were made for the purpose of ob
struction and delay. The Chair had al
ready ruled upon this point, aud an
appeal had been taken and the decision
of the Chair had been sustained.
McCreary then rose to a question of
privilege.
Tne Speaker—There 'cannot bo a
question of personal privilege when tho
uemand for the previous question is
pending.
After some further discussion a vote
was taken on tho demand for the previ
ous question, and was defeated; yeas
157, nays nothing.
During the calling of the roll Springer
held a consultation with McKinley, the
result of which was that the Democrats
no further opposition, and the bill
was referred to the Committee on Ways
and Means without a division. Then,
on motion of McKinley, the House ad
journed.
It is expected a code of rules will be
reported tomorrow.
SENATE PROCEEDINGS.
The Samoan Treaty Ratified—New '
Hill* Introduced, Etc.
Washington, February 4.—Soon after
the Senate went into executive session
today, Senator Sherman called up the
Samoan treaty, and for over three hours
it was under discussion.
Senator Eußtis led tho attack upon the
treaty, asserting that by its terms the
United States waß placed at a disadvan
tage compared with the other treaty
powers, Germany and England.
Senator Edmunds, a member of
the committee on foreign relations,
raised the question whether or
not the United States did not
by the treaty under consideration surren
der its rights to the harbor of Pago-Pago,
secured by the treaty of 1878. If it did,
he said, the loasof those rights more than
overbalanced the gain made in other
directions.
Senator Sherman replied that the rights
of the United States in the matter of
Pago-Pago were undisturbed by the treaty
of 188.).
He was supported in this view by Sen
ator Dolph. The discussion continued
until 5 o'clock, when the roll was called
upon ratifying the treaty. The motion to
ratify was adopted with only twelve neg
ative votes. •
Among the bills introduced and refer
red was one by Wolcott for the admission
of tho State of Now Mexico, end one by
Plumb for the protection of the American
bison, , . ,
lugalls presented a petition asking for
tho appropriation of $100 per capita for
emigrants to Liberia. Referred.
Plumb offered a resolution, which was
agreed to, for the Secretary of War to
furnish copies of the various reports of
military officers iv relation to affairs at
Guthrie and Oklahoma City since the
opening and pettlement of the territory.
After executive session the Senate ad
journed.
MR. GaßLlliiE'S A»I»RES3.
The Justness of the Democratic
Position Plain: > Set forth.
Washington, February 4.—Ex-Speak
er Carlisle's address to the country ex
plaining the position of the Democratic
members of the House, says in part-
Although nearly two months have
elapsed since the committee «v riles
was appointed, it has made no report,
except the partial one made on the Jtn
THE LOS AHQBLKB DAILY HKRALO- WEDNESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 5, 1890
of December, and consequently the
House has been compelled to conduct
its business without any rule
or system, except general parlia
mentary law as construed by the Speaker.
The American House of Representatives
has been during all this time, and siill
is, bo far as rules for its government are
concerned, in precisely the same con
dition aa a popular meeting or political
convention, in which the chairman and
hia partisans absolutely control all the
proceedings. No measure can get before
the House for consideration, unless the
Speaker chooses to allow it to be
presented, and the members have no
means of knowing in advance what they
are to be called upon to diecuss or
decide.
This is the first time in our history that
a legislative assembly, or even a public
meeting, has attempted to transact busi
ness for any considerable period without
a regular code of rules prescribing the
order of proceediDgs, and the inconven
ience and injustice resulting from such
attomtthas been forcibly illustrated in
the present instance. This personal and
partisan domination of the House was
submitted to, though not without re
peated protest, until we became con
vinced that it was the deliberate purpose
of the Speaker and hia supporters to pro
ceed without rules to oust the Democratic
members whose seats are contested, and
admit their Republican opponents.
On January 29th the Committee on
Elections called up a contested election
case, and the Democratic members de
termined that in the absence of rules it
should not be considered if they could
prevent it by any proper parliamentary
prcceedings. Accordingly they raised
the question of consideration, demanded
the yeas and nays, and on the call of the
roll, refrained from voting. The result
was that less than a constitu
tional quorum voted, but the Speaker,
in violation of the uniform
practice of the House for more than a
century, proceeded to count members
who were present but not voting, and
declared that the House had decided to
take the case up. From this decision an
appeal was taken, and on amotion to lay
the appeal on the table the yeas and
nays wore teken and less than a quorum
voted; but the Speaker again counted
members not voting and decided the
motion agreed to, and hi 3 ruling was
thereby sustained.
The Constitution of the United States
provides that a majority of each House
shall constitute a quorum to do
business; but a smaller number
may atljiurn from day to day
day, and may be authorized to comptl
the attendance of absent members in
such a manner find under such penalties
as each House may provide.
Another clause of the Constitution re
quires each House to keep a journal of
its proceedings, and provides that when
one-fifth cf the members present desire
it, the yeas and nays shall be taken on
any questiou and entered on the journal.
Since the beginning of tho Gcfvcrn
ment under the Constitution, more than
100 years ago, the House of Representa
tives and the Sdnate have uniformly con
s'rued the first clause of tho Constitu
tion quoted t.bove to mean that a major
ity of all the members-elect must be
present and actually participate in the
transaction of business, and that when
ever upon the call cf the yeas and nays
it appeared from the journal, which isthe
only official record, ttiat lesß than a
constitutional quoruuu voted on any prop
osition, the vote waa a nullity, and no
further business could be done until the
requisite number appeared and voted.
In order to secure certainty and stabil
ity in the administration of law, it is a
rule in our jurisprudence that when a
particular construction of the Constitu
tion or a statute has been for a long time
acquiesced to, not only by those whose
duty it is to execute it, but also by those
whose personal and property rights are
affected by it, the courts will recog
nizj it as the trus construction.
Even if this were an original
question it would not be difficult
to show that a practical construction of
theO onetitution which ha-< prevailed in
t 10 House and Senate for over a hundred
years, is the correct one. Speaker Reed
himself, when of the minoriiy on the
floor of the Hou;e, staled that to be the
true meaning aud true philosophy of the
Coußtitution when he said : "The consti
tutional idea of a quorum is not the pres
ence of a majority of all members in the
House, but a majority of the members
present, and participating in the business
of the Houte. It is not their visible
presence, but thoir judgment and votes
which the Constitution calls for."
General Garfield, Mr. Blame, Mr.
Conger, Mr. Robeson and other eminent
Republicans have taken the same posi
tion. When, therefore, the prosent
Speaker repudiated thia settled construc
tion of the Constitution, we considered
it our duty as a part of the
representatives of tho people to
enter our protests in every form
available to us uuder the circumstances.
We are not contending for the right of the
minority to govern, aa the supporters of
the Speaker bave endeavored to make
the country believe. On the contrary,
we are denying the right of the minority
to eject membars from their seats or to
pass laws for the government of the
people. ,
Uii'ter the Constitution a majority of
the House constitute a quorum to do
business, and we are simply insisting
that less than a majority shall not do
business. We are contending that the
majority shall take the responsibility
which properly belongs to them, aud
shall come into the House and vote if
they desire to control the proceedings,
and' we are protesting against their right
to carry their measures by counting us
when we do not vole.
The claim of the majority that they
have a right to govern the House with
out attending its sessions and takinc
part in the conduct of its business, is too
preposterous t) require refutation. It
must be evident to any one who under
stands the position taken by the Demo
cratic minority in the House, that it
cannot possibly result in any injury to
the country or in any injustice to the
majority. Its only effect will be to com
pel the Republican majority elected by
the psople to assume the responsibility
imposed upon them.
On the other hand no one can foresee
the evile that may result from the inau
guration of the practice of counting votes
not cast in order to make a
quorum. Under it a minority
of the members-elect to the House,
and Senate may pass most tyranmca
laws for tho oppression of the people and
the most corrupt laws for the spoliation
of the public treasury. Whether
so intended or not, its direct
tendency is to break down the
barriers heretofore existing for
the protection of citizens against the
encroachments of power and the spolia
tion of the treasury, by destroying the
limitations which the Constitution has
wisely imposed upon the Legislative
: department. Constitutions are made
to retrain majorities and protect
minorities. A majority ruling without
i iimita'cions or restraint upon its power,
i* a pure despotism, and is inconsistent
] with our system of government.
JUDICIARY CENTENNIAL.
The Department «f Justice Cele
brates It* Ceuicnlal.
New York, February 4.—The sad
events of the last few days at Washing
ton dimmed considerably the celebration
of the Centennial of the Federal Judi
ciary inaugurated this morning. The
weather, too, was very unfavorable, a
heavy rain falling. The attendance at
the exercises in the Metropolitan opera
house waa the most noted that ever
filled the magnificent building. Dis
tributed about the galleries were banners
and shields bearing tbe coats of arms of
tbe various States. The interior of the
building was otherwise elaborately
decorated. On the right of the stage, in
the front row, were seated the members
of the United States Supreme Court.
Ex-Prerident Grover Cleveland pre
sided. Others seated on the stage in
cluded ex-Justice William Strong, Sen
ator Evarts, T. J. Bemmes, of New
Orleans; General William T. Sherman,
Chauncey M. Depew and David Dudley
Field.
Whilo the distinguished gathering were
leaving their carriages at the door, and
filling the seats until there was standing
room only, the grand symphony orches
tra played the coronation march over
ture, to Znmpa and the American
fantasie.
EX-PRESIDENT CLEVELAND SPEAKS.
When the laßt air kad been played, ex-
President Cleveland stepped forward.
He was cheered to the echo, and some
minutes elapsed before he could speak.
Bowing his acknowledgments and ex
pressing his appreciation of the generous
welcome accorded him, Mr. Cleveland
delivered a brief introductory address, in
which, among other things, he said: "In
the work of creating our nation, the ele
ments of free government were sup
plied by concessions of the sovoroign
States, by surrender of their accustomed
rights, and by tbe inspiration of
pure and disinterested patriotism.
If from these elements there had not
been evolved that feature in our Federal
system, which is our theme today, the
structure might have been fair to look
upon and might have presented a sem
blance of solidity; but it Would have
been only a semblance, and the com
pleted edifice would have had within its
foundations the infirmity of decay and

by the veteran lawyer, Willian Allen

Chief Juctice Fuller then introduced
Justice Field, who responded on behalf
of the Supreme Court.
justice field's address.
Following is a synopsis of tlie address
of Justice Field:
"Iv every age and with every people,
there have been celebrations for triumphs
in war; for battles won on land and sea,
and for triumphs of peace; bat never un
til now has there been in any country a
celebration like this, to commemorate
the establishment of a judicial tribunal,
us a co-ordinate and permanent branch
of its government. This celebration
had its inspiration in a profound
reverencD for the Constitution of the
United States as the sure and only means
of preserving the Union, with its inesti
mable blessings, and the conviction that
this tribunal has materially contributed
to its just appreciation and ready obedi
ence to its authority. Experience has
shown that in a country of great terri
toria extent and varied interests, peace
and lasting prosperity can exist with a
civilized people only when local affairs
are controlled by the local authorities;
and at the same time there are lodged in
tho general Government of the country
such sovereign powers as will enable it
to regulate the intercourse of its people
\ith foreign nations and between com
nunities; protect them in all their rights
n such intercourse ; defend the country
igaicst invasion and domestic violence,
md maintain the supremacy of the laws
hroughout its whole domain.
"This principle the framers of the
Constitution act?d upon in establishing
he Government of the Union by leaving
mimpaired the power of the States to
;ontrol all matters of local interest and
;reating a new Government of the sov
jreigu powers for matters of general and
national concern. Tney thus succeeded
in reconciling local self-government, or
home rule, as it is termed, with the ex
srcise of national sovereignty for national
purposes. Under this dual Government
sach State may pursue the policy best
suited to its people and resources, though
unlike that of another State.
"And now, with its history in the cen
tury past, what is needed that the Su
preme Court of the United States should
sustain its character and be as useful in
the century to come ? I answer, as the
matter of first consideration, that it
should not be overborne with work; and
by that I mean it should have
fome relief from the immense burden
now cast upon it. This can only be
done by legislative action, aud in deter
mining what measures shall be adopted
for that purpose, Congress will undoubt
edly receive with favor suggestions from
the bar associations of the country.
"In view of the couoitions of the
court, its crowded docket, the multitude
of questions constantly brought before it
of the greatest and most extended iuflu
ence,.surely it has a right to call upon
the country to give it as?istance and re
lief. Something must be done in that
direction and should be done Hpeedily to
prevent tho delays now existing. To
delay justice is pernicious; to deny it is
tyranny. Oneef the most precious arti
cles of Magna Charta was that in which
the King declared he would not deny or
del«y to any man justice or right, and
assuredly what the barons of England
wrung from their monarch the people of
the United States will not refuse to any
suitor for justice in their tribunals."
liev. Talbot W. Chambers pronounced
tho benediction.

Katlier Slow Fi-ogress Hcliiff made
by the House Committee.
Washington, February 3—A meeting
of the House committee on World's Fair
was held this morning. The meeting
assumed a merely informal character,
and a discussion, relating in ptly to the
chances of the bill getting through th«
House while that body is proceeding
without rules, was indulged in at some
length. It is understood that the opinion
was expressed that the chances were
very precarious for the bill getting
through while the House was in its pres
ent condition. No attempt was made to
discuss the uncompleted sections of the
bill, and the work was left for a future
meeting.
