carried if I had not been on the commit

Mr Carter expressed the opinion that
public buildings constituted the worst
place for an attempt at economy The
appropriations of the present session he
said were calculated to challenge the at
tention of the country although the most
strenuous efforts had been made to keep
them down It was true that the JjWMrJ
appropriation for the St Louis Exposition
might have been left out but it was
questionable whether it would have been
sound public policy to have disregarded
that great exposition The pension appro
priations had been larger than ever be
fore he declared
Mr Gallinger Just the sime
Mr Carter But the number of private
pension bills that have been passed In this
Congress Is greater than the number
passed at any previous Congresses e
are about to close this Congress and I do
not think we can make a record of econ
omy by keeping down the appropriations
for public buildings
Mr Fairbanks Chairman of the Com

In the House yesterday Mr Taylor
Chairman or the Committee on Elec
tions remitted the conclusions of that
committee on the protest of George D
Gem- against the seating of Robert W
Wilcox Delegate from Hawaii and on
th contest of George MDavidson against
Gxirgo G tert Fitting for the Eighth
illstrict of Kentucky
Davidsons contest was based upon the
contention that the act of the Legisla
ture of Kentucky changing the bound
aries of the Eighth district in March
tf3 lolaled the constitution of the State
and was contrary to the act of Congress
apportioning Hcprcsenti tives among the I
States The report says that this is be
lieved to be tlie first time in the history
of the Government that Congress was
called upon to undo the work of a State
whoso Legislature had divided itself Into
the proper number of Congressional dis
tricts A discurslon of the matter led
liic committee to conclude
That a proper construction of the Con
stitution docs not warrant the conclusion
that by that Instrument Congress Is
clothed with power to determine the boun
daries of Congressional districts or to
revise the acts or a State Legislature
in fixing such boundaries and your com 4
mittee Is further of opinion that even It
sucli power is to be Implied from the
language of the Constitution it would be
In the last degree unwise and Intolerable
that It should exercise it To do so would
be to put into tlie hands of Congress the
ability to disfranchise In effect a large
body of the electors It would give Con
gress the power to apply to nil the States
In favor of one party a general system
of gerrymandering It is true that the
same method is to a large degree resorted
to by the several States but the division
of political power is so general and di
verse that notwithstanding the Inherent
vice of the system of gerrymandering
some kind of equality of distribution of
results is attained
Upon the charge of treason made
against Mr Wilcox by Mr Gear the com
mittee says We do not think that the
conduct of n native of the Hawaiian Isl
ands a year or more prior to the passage
of the organic act establishing a Terri
tory however Improper It may have been
abstractly viewed ought to deprive the
Hawaiian people of the representative
they have sent
As to the validity of the election at
which WJIcox was chosen It Is said
There was a full and free expression of
the popular will under the theory that
the Territory was entitled to send a Dele
gate to Congress and as a result of that
full and free popular expression Wilcox
was chosen by a considerable plurality
He comes here therefore as tho agent of
his people chosen apparently under the
forms of and with all the solemnity which
surrounds the most carefully conducted
election and we think he ought to be per
mitted to retain his seat as their repre
sentative In the capacity of a Delegate
if he Is not a suitable person to
here give expression to the wishes and
feelings of the people who Inhabit those
Islands and who are for all time to be
citzens of the American Hepubllc they
wlll no doubt discover that fact and in
due time send another

wives It Is said live In Mount Vernon
Hocking Is a house painter and Is thirty-six
years old The priest says that
he has a glib tongue and that he caught
his victims by conversing with them
while he worked
Hockings last venture in the matrimo
nial line and the one which brought him
to prief took place two weeks ago when
he married Miss Elizabeth Maycock a
housekeeper for Assistant City Judge
Charles Sinnot Miss Maycock Is one of
Father Flynns parishioners She want
ed to be married by the priest but Hock
ing insisted on having the llev S I
Iraliam an Episcopal clergyman per
form the ceremony and he carried his
point
When Father Flynn heard of the wed
ding he began an investigation lie
found a woman named Mary Archer who
said that Hocking married her in the
northern part of the State In 1SS4 and
that four years later he married a crip
pled woman named Jane Tucker at
Ileasantville JJ Y The second wife
died and It is reported that Hocking

that he expected to secure nulte a sum
