Passage Into History ; of the
Fifty-Third Con
Politics Laid Aside in Both
Houses and a. Love Feast
Washington, March 4.— At noon to-day,
after a continuous session of forty-eight
hours, interrupted by an occasional recess,
the flags above the Capitol were lowered
and the Fifty-third Congress had passed
into history. In the House the end was
not marked or marred by any unpleasant
incident. All the appropriation bills were
out of the way when the House convened
at 8 o'clock this morning. The time was
dwindled away until 11 o'clock, the only
feature being a rather brisk debate on the
results to follow from the projected mone
tary conference. The usual committee was
sent to the President to inform him that
Congress was ready to adjourn and the
other formalities of the end of a Congress
were gone through with. The concluding
minutes were in the nature of a love feast.
The best of feeling prevailed. The resolu
tion of thanks to the Speaker which came
from the minority was offered to-day by
Cannon in a very graceful speech, bearing
testimony to the high appreciation in
which the presiding officer was held by the
Republican minority.
"Wilson of "West Virginia responded on
behalf of the majority, and Simpson of
Kansas, representing the Populists, joined
in the expression of thanks for the cour
tesies and kindnesses extended by the
Speaker. All the kindly sentiments were
applauded, and when Crisp himself as
cended the rostrum to return thanks and
deliver his parting words the demonstra
tion was terrific. At the conclusion of his
speech, just before declaring the House ad
' journed, he appointed Culberson of Texas,
Hitt of Illinois and himself as members of
the monetary commission. His own ap
pointment was by resolution.
As the Fifty-third Congress came to an
end the doxology was sung by the corre
spondents in the press gallery.
At 8 o'clock this morning when the House
reconvened in its final session after a four-hour
recess there were exactly eleven members on
the floor. The Speaker was at his post. All
looked tired and worn out. In the public gal
lery opposite the Speaker's gallery lounged a
half-dozen belated visitors who had remained
there all night, and in the private gallery a
solitary female held the fort. She looked be
draggled, but was evidently determined to sit
it out. Otherwise the hall was deserted.
Baker (R.) of New Hampshire had the honor
of passing the first bill of the final session. It
was a bill to pay a war claim of Margaret Ken
nedy, amounting to -£1000. The husband of
the beneficiary had been a well-known figure
about the Capitol for years. Every morning he
was to be found at one of the doors with his
pocket fall of apples dealing them out to mem
bers and appealing for votes for his bilL
Dockery was in the watch tower looking after
Uncle Sam's strong box, Out he allowed several
bills to go through by unanimous consent. One
by one the members arrived and the galleries
began to fill. At 9 o'clock Chairman Sayers of
t__e Appropriation Committee entered the hall.
Although he has been almost constantly at
work for forty-eight hours, he was buoyant and
of light step, overjoyed that the last appropria
tion bill had passed. |H__B
Grosvenor (R.) of Ohio caused the first flurry
by a sharp speech contending that the Repub
licans were the true friends of bimetallism.
The repeal of the Sherman act two years ago,
he said, had accomplished more than any other
influence to bring about the hopeful condition
for silver we now observe the world over. He
predicted great results from the proposed! mon
etary conference.
Grosvenor's speech precipitated quite astir
among the silver men. They all rushed for
ward and appealed for recognition. Bryan
(D.) of Nebraska managed to get the floor and
indignantly resented the reflection made by
Pence yesterday upon the silver men who
favored this conference. He was for free sil
ver, but he believed it the heigh tof folly for the
United States not to join hands with other
countries of the world if they were ready and
' willing to join in the scheme for the remoneti
ration of silver.
Dingley (R.) of Maine agreed with Grosvenor,
contending with the European bimetallists
that the single attempt of any country— the
United States, France or Germany— to open its
mints to the free coinage of silver, would
swamp it and place it immediately on a silver
Walker (R.) of Massachusetts, Wangcr (R.) of
Pennsylvania and Simpson (Pop.) of Kansas
crowded in a few words before the debate was
cut off at 10 o'clock by a motion for a recess
until 11 o'clock. Simpson made the point of
no quorum. Meantime visitors had poured
into the galleries until they were packed. On
the floor all was confusion. Members chatted
and laughed and bid each other good-by.
Finally Simpson surrendered and a recess was
taken until 11 o'clock.
At 11 o'clock, when the House reconvened,
the noise in the galleries and the confusion on
the floor ceased. The usual committee, con
sisting of Catchings of Mississippi, Outhwaite
of Ohio and Reed of Maine, was appointed to
join a similar committee from the Senate and
inform the President that Congress was ready
to adjourn. The Speaker appointed Rusk of
Maryland, Meredith of Virginia aud Coffin of
Maryland on the Committee of Accounts, to
•serve during the recess.
The committee appointed to wait on the
President, with Catchings as spokesman, then
appeared and informed the Speaker that the
President had :no further communication to
make to Congress. 7'V ;
.X I the conclusion of the love feast, when the
resolution complimenting Speaker Crisp was
passed and all the nice things said, the end
came. The hands of the clock pointed to 12
o'clock. "I now declare the third session of
the Fifty-third Congress," said the Speaker,
"adjourned without day."
The silver mace was lifted from its malachite
pedestal, the flag above the House was low
ered, and amid cheers and catcalls from the
galleries a rush was made for the doors. But
from the press gallery came the sound of
music. The newspaper correspondents were
singing the doxology. "Praise God from whom
all blessings* flow." The spectators paused to
listen and applaud and then, as the chorus
ceased, pushed out and in a few minutes the
hall was deserted.
Crowded Galleries and the Usual Con
gratulatory Resolutions.
Washington, March 4.— noon to-day
the United States Senate closed its final
session of the Fifty-third JCongress amid
crowded galleries, congratulatory resolu
tions, a parting word from President
Cleveland and a brief valedictory from the
The wonted dignity of the Senate was
preserved to the end, except for the rush
of business incident to the last hours of a
session. The Senators were at work by 9
o'clock, . after having remained in the
chamber until 4a. m. They clearly showed
the fatigue of the Jong session lasting from
Saturday noon and their ranks were too
thin up to 11 o'clock for the transaction of
iny^iing beyond formal business. By
•hat time there were few vacant seats on
;he floor of the Senate and the galleries
were literally packed, the crowds filling
the Senate, pushing into the aisles and
overflowing in long lines down the "orri
dors and stairways.
Many members of the diplomatic corps
occupied the gallery reserved for them. By
10 o'clock the last formalities on the two
remaining appropriation bills—naval and
deficiency — were concluded, and the meas
ures started to the executive mansion.
There was no disposition to take tip new
business and two efforts to consider ques
tions affecting the Bering Sea were cut off
by objections.
A feature of the last moments of the
session was the tumultuous laughter that
greeted the announcement of Voorhees of
the committee to wait on the President
that the latter tendered his congratulations
to Congress on the close of their labors.
Vice-President Stevenson closed the ses
sion with a few well-chosen words, as he
stated the work of the Fifty-third Con
gress passed into history.
Cockrell, who as chairman of the Appro
priations Committee has borne a large part of
the burden of the 48 hours of continuous
struggle on the appropriation bills, was among
the late arrivals. At 9:10, when the Senate
proceedings were resumed, the Vice-President
announced his signature to the naval appro
priation bill. It was the last formality before
the taking of the last important measure to
the President.
At 9:40 the Vice-President announced his
signature to the deficiency bill. This was the
last of the appropriation bills, and thus all of
the great measures for the carrying on of the
Government were either at the executive man
sion or on their way there. Little was done,
unanimous consent having been given to con
fine the business to conference agreements.
Then the Senators lapsed into inaction, wait
ing for the concluding hour to arrive.
At 10:15 Voorhees offered a resolution, which
was adopted, for the appointment of a joint
committee ol the two houses to wait upon the
President of the United States and inform him
that Congress, having completed its business,
was ready to adjourn. . The Vice-President
named Voorhees and Sherman as the Senate
members of the committee.
Morrill of Vermont here presented a graceful
compliment to the Vice-President, who had
temporarily left the chair, in the form of a
resolution thanking him for the ability, dig
nity and impartiality with which he had ad
ministered the duties of presiding officer.
There was a loud and unanimous adoption of
the resolution.
At 11:40 a joint resolution was passed as to
compensation to employes. A messenger
dashed away with it in a race to get to the
White House and secure the President's signa
ture within twenty minutes. 7__Eiai6
The thanks of the Senate were expressed in a
resolution offered by Manderson for the cour
tesy and impartiality with which Harris had
served as President pro tern. of the Senate.
Harris then took the chair and returned his
thanks for the flattering resolution.
At 12 minutes to 12 o'clock the last enrolled
bill was reported to the Senate as signed by the
Vice-President, but it seemed impossible to get
the executive signature in time.
Call vehemently insisted on a final vote on
his Florida resolution. Aldrich declared that
a special committee, if appointed, will be for a
political purpose alone. He moved an amend
ment that the Committee on Judiciary make
the investigation. Call excitedly denounced
the statement of Aldrich concerning the politi
cal purposes of the inquiry. At this moment
Voorhees and Sherman, the Senate committee
to wait on the President, appeared at the door
and announced that the President had no
further communication to make.
The Vice-President announced Senators
Cockrell, Davis, Daniel, Gordon, Quay and
Sherman as the members of the committee to
take part in the dedication of theChickamauga
military park. The Vice-President rose as the
clock pointed to two minutes to 12 for a part
ing word to the Senate. He said :
"Senators, the hour has arrived, fixed by law,
for the termination of this Congress. For the
courtesy uniformly extended me and the reso
lutions just adopted my gratitude cannot be
measured by words. I would do violence to
my feelings if I failed to express my thanks to
the officers of this body for the fidelity with
which they have discharged their important
duties and for their assistance and courtesy to
the presiding officer. It only remains to make j
the official announcement that the Senate
stands adjourned without day."
As the last words were spoken by the Vice-
President, being timed to conclude at 12, he
brought his gavel down sharply and declared
the session at an end. There was no demon
stration and no applause. Senators began bid
ding their adieus. The appearance of the
chamber and the weary looks of worn-out Sen
ators were evidence that the end had come.
Why are users of Dr. Price's Baking
Powder like Oliver Twist? They like it so
well they always cry for more.

Washington, March 4.— The Fifty-third
will be remembered in Washington as
"The Rump Congress." Everybody is
disgusted with it and glad that it is gone.
The Pacific Coast delegation is especially
displeased because no action was taken
on the Nicaragua canal. In the
House nothing was done for silver;
the Wilson tariff almost paralyzed some
of most important industries of California.
The Senate ratified the new Chinese treaty,
and, not content with all the mischief, in
the closing hours knocked out one of the
new battle-ships, thereby sorely disappoint
ing Irving M. Scott, as it is not sure by any
means that he will get one of the con

repeated efforts he failed to get recognition
for Oakland's postoffice bill. " The naval
bill, as passed, also eliminates $250,000 for
the Hartford, as well as a provision requir
ing one of the torpedo-boats to be built at
Mare Island.
Bowers was knocked out on his bill to
provide mountain-stream motive power for
Southern California electric lighting.
Caminetti was defeated in his attempt to
pass the mineral land classification bill.
Geary is sore over the failure of . the Nica
ragua bill, and Senator Perkins because the
Hawaiian cable amendment was defeated.
. Senator White also met with a failure to
day in his attempt to have the Commerce
Committee of the Senate go to San Pedro
and Santa Monica to investigate their re
spective merits for a deep-water harbor.
The Senate refused this, but White says
some individual members may go anyhow
in May. The only thoroughly contented
man in the California delegation is Ma
guire 1 who gloats over his defeat of Hunt
ington and his lobby.
Senator Perkins left for home to-night.
White goes to-morrow. Of the Represen

morrow, Maguire, English and Caminetti
will remain here for several days yet.

Bride of the Count de

Witnessed Such a Scene of
Royal Splendor.
New York, March 4.— The marriage of
Miss Anna Gould/daughter of the late Jay
Gould of this city, to Count Paul Ernest
Boniface de Castellane was solemnized
to-day at noon, Archbishop Corrigan
officiating, at the residence of her brother,
George J. Gould, Sixty-seventh street and
Fifth avenue.
At 11:30 o'clock the relatives and less
than 100 intimate friends assembled at the
house. The residence was artistically
decorated throughout with a profusion of
tropical plants, smilax, plumes and
maidenhair, and overj 20,000 La France
roses, lilies of the valley and Japan lilies.
The wedding took place on the first or
parlor floor, the ceremony being performed
in what is known as the East India room
"Rom her latest photograph, taken about two weeks ago and [Reproduced from the New York "Herald's" drawing of the Count's
drawn for the New York" World.'*] ... ."'. latest photograph.] .
I in the southwest corner of the mansion.
The bridal procession formed in the library,
a room of ample dimensions on the second
floor immediately over the East India
room, where the presents of the bride and
groom were afterward exhibited. The
guests received the first information of the
formation of the bridal party by music
issuing from an orchestra concealed in the
hall behind a bank of palms and ferns. The
number given was the "Largo" of Handel
by an orchestra and an organ, and "Lisa's
Dream" from "Lohengrin, "which was sung
by Rosa Sucher, the operatic soprano, to
the accompaniment of the string orches
tra. This was followed by the bridal
march from Lohengrin, and the assembled
guests witnessed the bridal procession
descending the flower-adorned stairs in the
following order:
First came the ushers, Prince del Drago,
Raoul Duval.Brockholst Cutting and How
ard Gould. They were followed by the
bridesmaids, Miss Beatrice. Richardson,
Miss Adelaide Montgomery, Miss Catherine
Cameron and Miss Helen Gould. The
bride then followed, leaning on the arm of
her brother, George J. Could, her train be
ing carried by her nephews, Masters King
don and Jay Gould. They entered the
music-room and passed into the East
India room, walking slowly up the aisles,
which had been made by running parallel
white ribbons fastened to bushes of flower
ing roses. When they reached the dais at
the Fifth-avenue end of the room the
music stopped. The ushers stood to each
side and the bridesmaids stood before the
ushers. Here, awaiting the approach of
his bride, stood the bridegroom attended
by his brother, the Count Jean de Castel
lane, while on the dais stood Archbishop
Corrigan, wearing his ecclesiastical robes.
Mr. Gould placed his sister's hand in
Count de Casteliane's hand and withdrew
to the left, where his wife and her two
little sons stood.
The ceremony was abridged by the fact
that the bride has not, as has been fre
quently stated, surrendered her own re
ligious faith. , When the time came for the
bride to have placed, upon her finger the
wedding ring, she handed her large and
beautiful bouquet of lilies of. the valley to
her sister, Miss Helen Gould, who stood
on her immediate right. The "Aye
Maria" was sung by Rosa Sucher,
stationed at the foot of the stairs in the
large hall, her rich glorious voice blend
ing with the strains of the orchestra.
After the . benediction had been spoken
Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" was
rendered, and the bride received the good
wishes of the Archbishop and the two
officiating priests, which were .followed im
mediately -by those of her sister, Miss
Helen Gould, and her brother. The Count,
radiant and happy, led his wife into the
alcove where, under a showering mass of
lilies of the valley, they stood ready to re
ceive the congratulation of their friends.
Immediately the flowering plants, which
had served as posts for the ribbons form
ing the aisle, were removed, and in a short
time after the doors of the dining-room
were thrown wide open and a number of
small tables were brought into the room
and placed about it, where the guests
seated . themselves to enjoy a delicious
breakfast. As all sp_.ee was essential, the
house being of moderate capacity, the
orchestra was moved to the gallery on the
third floor, and for an hour or more dis
coursed a programme of varied music.
At 2:30 p. m. the bride, attired in her
traveling dress, passed through the hall
crowded with friends anxious to bid her
farewell. .
Speculation, which has been rife for
many weeks as to the marriage, has
evolved a varied programme of the bride's
honeymoon, but the young couple have
kept this a close secret and none, not even
the immediate family, have a remote idea
as to the immediate future movements of
Count and Countess de Castellane.
In addition to the immediate relatives of
the bride there were present at the cere
mony and breakfast about eighty intimate
friends outhe bride and family, among them
being: Sir Roderick and the Misses Cam
eron, Duncan Cameron, Roy Cameron,
Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Rippon, Mrs. Brock

The bride's wedding gown was a heavy
ivory satin duchess ' tastefully trimmed
with . point d'Angleterre lace, which was
twelve inches wide and of rare and beauti
ful pattern. The skirt fits very tightly
over the hips and flares out at the bottom.
The train is round and is about three yards
in length. The gown is lined throughout
with heavy ivory silk, fashioned at the bot
tom with three full ruffles of full lace.
These ruffles are trimmed with bows of
satin ribbons. Point d'Angleterre lace forms
a drapery over the body beginning a little
back of the right shoulder. It then crosses
to the left side and passes under a folded
empire belt, which is made of satin. At
the bottom of the belt the drapery begins
again and is extended over the left side
like a jabot, and is carried around the
front of the skirt in Vandykes which are
looped and fastened by small bunches of
real orange blossoms. The sleeves are cut
in the latest fashion, the top of the sleeves
being very full and the under part very
tight. The sleeves buttoned very closely
over the wrist. The collar was a Henry
IV and at the top rolled over, displaying
facing which was of point d'Angleterre.
The bodice of the gown is fastened at the
back under a roll of satin and two bows of
lace. The bridal veil was rare old lace pre
sented to the bride by the Marquise de Cas
tellane, and was fastened at the crown of
the head with a bunch of orange blossoms.
Ihe petticoat worn with the gown was
made of heavy ivory moire silk of the same
beautiful tint as the dress, and trimmed
with three flounces of real lace headed with
little butterfly bows and narrow satin rib
bons about six inches apart.
Tlie Count and Countess Wedded a Second
Time. \
New York, March The World to-'
morrow will say: No arrangements seem
to have been made for the civil wedding
previous to yesterday. In fact, it had been
decided not to have a civil ceremony until
nearly two hours after the religious serv
ices had been concluded by Archbishop
Corrigan. V .;:-"
At 2p. m. George Gould telephoned to
his attorney, Julien T. Davies, saying in
effect: "We have decided to have a civil
marriage. Go immediately to the Court
house and ask a Judge to come up pre
pared to perform a marriage ceremony.'? •
This message caused great excitement in
the law office. It was decided to ask Judge
Miles Beach of the Court of Common Pleas,
but the Judge was 'holding court and said
it was out of the question for him to leave.
Justice Andrews finally consented, and
leaving the bench was driven rapidly to
the Gould home. When he arrived it was
3:30 o'clock, and the wedding party was in
a state of excitement for fear the "plan to
have a civil marriage might fall through. I
Many of the guests had gone., -j;
At « Justice Andrews' suggestion those
remaining went upstairs to the sitting-room
on the second floor, and there in the center
of the room the simple ceremony Which
declared the two man and wife a second
time was performed. "George and Helen
Gould, Attorney Garner ami about half a
dozen of the guests were witnesses. The
bridesmaids and ushers were not present.
The bride and bridegroom signed the
certificate hurriedly and departed.
Moral and Justifiable. in the
, Trapping of Bold Crim
Other Decisions of Much Inter
. est to This Coast Are
Washington, March The Supreme
j Court met to-day after a recess of four
■ weeks, with all the Justices, except Mr.
j Jackson, in attendance. A long list of
j opinions was disposed of rapidly. Many
: of them decided cases of great importance.
The interesting question whether the
| conviction of a person by means of a de
; coy letter is legal was passed upon in the
: case of one Grirnme, convicted in Missouri
i for dealing in obscene pictures. He an
. swered a letter from the Postoffice In
spector which resulted in his conviction,
, and he appealed, complaining against the
means by which it was secured. The
court held that decoy letters were both
; morally and legally justifiable.
! The decision of the Circuit Court for the
District of Massachusetts in the case of the
National Cash Register Company against
the Boston Cash Indicator and Record
Company was reversed, the opinion by
Justice Brown holding that the defend
ant's machine is an infringement on the
National cash register.
An interesting constitutional question
was decided in the case of E. S. Emmert
against the State of Missouri. The former
was an agent or peddler of Singer sewing
machines. It was sought to make him pay
a peddler's license. He refused, contend
ing that as the machines came from New
Jersey, the license was a restriction on the
constitutional right of interstate com
merce. The court held that being handled
as a part of the local and domestic com
merce, they were no longer the subject of
interstate traffic and were properly subject
to the State police regulations.
The Arkansas law of 1887, limiting pas
senger fares to 3 cents a mile and fixing a
penalty of $300 for each overcharge, was
In the case of the United States against
George H. Pratt and Monroe Salisbury of
California, to recover excessive payments
made to them for carrying the mails, the
action of the court below in dismissing the
case was reversed.
The conviction of Harry F. Batchcler,
formerly president of the Lockgrowers'
National Bank of Miles City, Mont., for
embezzlement by the Circuit Court for the
District of Montana, was reversed on the
ground that the indictment was defective.
The case of Bannon and Mulkey against
the State of Oregon, the plaintiffs having
been convicted with twenty-five others of
conspiring to bring Chinese laborers into
the State contrary to law, was decided.
The chief allegation of plaintiffs in error
was that the indictment failed to aver that
the act was feloniously done, but the court
held this was not good and sustained the
lower court in the conviction.

Washington, March 4.— A1l the appro-
I priation bills have become laws, the Presi

Important Meetings of the
American Bimetallic
The People to Be Asked to Do
Their Own Nominating
in Future, v 7
"Washington, March 4.— The meeting of
members of the American Bimetallic
League, which has been in progress here
during the pa^t two weeks, will
soon issue an address to the Ameri
can people asking support for a new
party having the principal plank of its
platform the free and unlimited coinage of
silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, and demanding
that the money of the country shall be
issued by the Government itself.
The address will inaugurate a new
feature in American politics by doing away
with the old system of nominating con
ventions, will call upon the people them
selves to nominate candidates for the
Presidency and Vice-Presidency by peti
It is urged that delegates to nominating
conventions do not' always represent the
views and wishes of the people sending
them, and it has been decided that the
people in their own name shall name
their candidates.
The league has had in conference during
the last two weeks leading silver men
from twenty-four States and Territor
ies and the decision to ask the
voters of the country to lay aside
their allegiance to the old parties
until the great fight for silver had been
won was not arrived at without much de
liberation and consultation with the lead
ing silver men in all sections of the country.

Why the Grip Is So Much More Feared
Than Many Other Diseases That
Affect Us.
If the grip would run its coarse like another
disease and then go away, leaving no trace be-
hind, it would still be dangerous enough to
justify all the precautions against it. But the
evil that grip does lives after it. People who
can't digest their food and complain of cold
hands and feet, or of shattered nerves, or are
tormented by a persistent cough, say: . "I have
never been well since I had the grip."
The reason is simple enough. There has been
an immense drain of vital force during the
battle with the disease, and this loss has never
been made good. Thus the weakened body,
like a town without fortifications, is open to
the enemy. A second attack of grip is, for this
reason, more serious than the first. How shall
•the harmful consequence of the first battle bo
remedied, and how shall a second siege be pre-
vented? Here is the answer:
"My lungs have been weak for four months
after a severe attack of the grip," says Mrs.
Hague of Bridgeport, Pa. "Three weeks ago
I I began using Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey, and
can highly recommend it. I wish I had tried
it sooner."
For the benefit of people who like to know
the why and wherefore, it should be said that
Duffy's Pure MaltJ Whiskey is a medicinal stimu-
lant, which stirs all the functions of the body
to such brjsk and healthy action that the grip
can find no weak spot to seize upon.
Hard work, anxiety and exposure drag down
the most vigorous constitutions. It is only a
question of time, unless the strength be sus-
tained by a stimulant that goes to help the
respiratory, digestive and excretory organs,
Because Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey does this
| it has robbed the dreaded grip of its terrors.
I Please remember, though, that a remedy used
promptly is doubled in value.
