At about 6 o'clock in theevening lines
of people from every direction began to
move towads the hall. and a few minutes
after the opening of the door, the hall
was crowded to Its utmost. The au

3 every one attired in light spring gar

and pleasures reigned supreme.
The ladies and especially the good
Sisters of Mercy had prepared everything
so as to offer the greatest ease to the
spectators,. and the entertainment as a

To the Editor of Messenger.
_ The Capitol was shaken to its very
b, foundation by the severe thunder storm
of a few days ago, and our Legislators
thought that the day of reckoning had
Ig come. The Senators were all brought to
,f their feet by sudden thunden clay, and
-. in horror observed the lightening playing
,n around the ceiling to their deliberative
e chamber, and were so paralized by the
scene that considerable time claped be
fore business was resumed in its accus
On the House side galleries were crow
ded, and the members below were enga
ged in a heated debate over the eight
hour bill when suddenly the peal of
thunder and flash of lighting brought
every member to his feet and caused the
crowds in the galleries to suddenly dis
, appear. The press gallery was also qul
ekly cleared by the ball of fire whieh
tr played around the telegraph instruments
- and cut them all off. In the rotunda,
e the shock was felt more than anywhere,
, else, because the massive iron dome ser
I I ved as a play ground for the lightening
and as a sounding board so that the- peo
ple in the rotunda ran to the doore,
thinking that the dome was falling.
r Beside the fright, no injury was done
- except destroylng thetelegraphic instru
s ments, and killieg aborse to a cab stand
s ing at the Senate wing of the building.
1 It now 13oks as if we will without
a doubt have the Congress of Nations to
consider a code of international laws,
and a mode of arbitration to settle dis
putes which may arise between American
nations without recourse to arms, The
bill for that purpose has already pass
ed the House, and the Sedate Committee
has reported favorably on it. The con
vention will be held April 1, 1889, and
will be composed of twenty-four delegates
from each country to meet in Washington.
but no nation shall have more than one
vote in the disposition of the question.
A uniform system of weights and mea
sures; a common silver coin for trade
purposes to be issued and redeemed by
each nation, and other important measu
res will be acted upon by the Congress.
The House Committee on the revision
of the laws has agreed to report a joint
resolution providing for the election of I
U. 8. Senators by a direct vote of the pee
pie, the same as members of the House
of Representatives. The resolution may
pass the House, but the indications are
that it will never get through the Senate.
Sentor Riddleberger is still pegging
away at his hobby for open Executive
Session, and if the change does not take
place this Congress, it will not be for the
want of persistency on the part of its I
champion. The Senator has just offered c
a resolution that the consideration of *
thh Fisheries treaty be in open session W
and asked unanimous consent for the i
Immediate consideration of his resolution. r
Senator Cockrell objected, and so the c
matter has gone over for the present.

Cleveland is booked for an address on
the subject, "Why is not Women the t
Equal of Man." It will be Mias Cleve
land's first visit to the city since thee
marrage of her brother, and her best do
friends here are anticipating muck plea
sure from seeing her again.
The sudden death of Chief Justicee
Waite has cast a gloon over both social
and political life at the Nation's Capital. 2
The death was the result of a cold con
tracted a month ago in attending the d
funeral of a Miss grown, who died while
visiting the family of the Chief Justlee.
The Supreme Court convened at the usu
al hour on FridiAy and Justice Miller,
the Senior Justice, after announcing the
death of their Chief adjourned the court
for one week. The court room was erow
ded and profound sorrow prevailed in the ]
quiet chamber. The Senate and Heose I
both adjourned over out of respect to the i
memory of the distinguished dead.
