The inauguration is to take place

During the aiteruonn, af;er the
inaugural ceremonies have been

Mississippi is getting a good
deal of free advertising by those
fellows who are hired by Western
newspapers to slander the state,
such slanders a'ways operating as

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

the constitution. Murray of South

member of the last congress, is back
as a tontestant for his old seat the
certificate to which is held by a
Democrat. 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. General
opinion among the house Republi
cans appears to be that this congress
will be conservative in unseating
the thirty-two members whose 'eats
are contested. The Republican ma
jority is so large that there is no
need to strain a point in unseating
Democrats, so it is thought not like
