MISSISSIPPI AND SOUTH CAROLINA. Republicans May Not Attack t Mate lonsmuiion mis session. Washington, Dec. 5. Although there was talk hefore congress met that the Southern Republicans might try to bring about congres sionul action on the State constitu tions oi South Carolina and Missis sippi, which they claim ore design ed to disfranchise their party, there does not seem to he much liklihood that any effective steps in that di rection w il! he taken. Some ot the new member have talked with the house veterans on the subject and have become convinced that there is nothing this congress can do, and that the only practical result would be to bring the question involved into the Supreme court. la iho next congress, if it be a Republican house, the status will be different. Already there Is talk among South ern Republicans that members who bring credentials from South Caro lina to the next congress may be re fused their seats on the ground that the State has not the Republicim form of government guaranteed by the constitution.

He claims to have been counted out and says he has not the slightest doubt thut he will be seat ed. The Republicans of the State, lie says, notwithstanding their re cent rebuff iu the Supreme court, are preparing to bring the question of the validity of the new coustitu before the court in a form which they think will lequirea decision on the main Issue at stake.
