By the recent decision of the l'lilted States Snpreiue Court it is apparent I that Congress alone has the power to regulate rates upon railroads which are , not wholly coufllied to the limits of one State. The Inter-state measures Intro duced at the Inst session of Congress have been resurrected. The hills pro l*«*ed will prohibit unjust discrimina tion, giving of special rates and similar concessions. These rueiumres have been i Ip-fore Congress for a time iiumetnorinl, hut that they never can become laws In dicates the (tower of these corporations. A hill wus introduced in the House | for the free coinage of silver. It pro • vidns that the holdei* of silver hiilliou j may have the same coined into standard - dollars of IIJ| grains on Uie same terms as are applied to the coiftugr of gold; that the silver dollar shall Is- the unit of account and stundurd of value, iu like luuuucr ns now provided for the gold dollar, and it shall lie a full legal tender. | 'l‘lils law would suit the majority of the |M-ople of the I 'lilted States, but the bill would have to |*oas over the veto of the I'resident, as it would not meet hia approtuitlou, Tiik Wallow World thus ends ita career: "Subscribers who do not get their |>a|>rrn hereafter will know why it J is that way.

FlolU It will lie seen that the fight of the right of the settler is not exlinudrd until lie receives the "ahee|e | skin" from the government for Ids laud. The rav was that of the I’nlted States versus J. It. Simpson. Indicted at this' term of c**urt for perjury on two counts. Simpson had takMi up a homestead > entry Iu the Stale of Wismnalu. and \ afterward had moimnted It t*» a rash 1 entry, lie moved to Wyoming and en tried a homedewl there, sweating. 11l 1 proving up. that he h«l never male a h«unesteal entry prior to the one Hint lie lial male in that Tejritory. The . point Introltred was whether or not the hoiiiesteal entry flint lie male In Wis consin. and afterward commuted, ex haii»te«l his rights under the hoiuesteal law. Judge Blair instructed th«* Jury that Sun peon's entry In Wisconsin did not exhaust Ids rights under the hoiuesteal law. and In re-entering In the Territory J he did not commit perjury. ) Judge Blair was long and exhaust ive and the rigid* of set tiers under the various land laws were fidtv discussed. The decision meets w ith general ap proval. AT THE SEAT OF GOVERNMENT. t*r» in Ihir llnruter CurreMpaMi'U-nL WasiiisotoN. I). C. Ike. 10. |sM. Fongreas has again met. the Presi dent's message real and Isdh houses are j nt work. As to the message, which a- gnnd many inemlierN rrfrnlmsl from com menting U|miu until after they had real it tilemselves, there arc various opin ions. The Itepuhlicnns are disposed to criticise Its length and some of them accuse Mr. t'le\eland of having sacri llced conciseness to a ileslre to please condlctlng elements of Ids party. Their rritlrisin Is not more severe, however, than oppitning political sentiment Is usually regarded as calling for. The Democrats are disputed to praise the document with the except lon of that part relating to silver, which creatos some diversity of comment. The tariff reformers contend that the President has committed himself to rebum. while some of the protectionista regard Ids views as conservative enough to suit them. When Bandall was asked liow he liked the message he replied that lie was well pleas4*il with it. “What do you think of the tariff section ?" “Oh. I am very Well pleased with the message." the leader of the protectionist Demo crats repeated, “that is lha only opinion I have to give.’’ Members of Congress always think at the t>cgtnni»'gnf a new session that (hey are going to do a great deal of work. Kadi man lio|n>s to gel some action on his pet project. Thus** who want to re form the tariff are particularly eager and energetic. The strong imsltinn taken by the President on the subject Inis given them new courage. The mem-; hers have cotne hack free and ready to work with no fear of n campaign liefore them, and there is every’ reason why much should lie accomplished. A great deal of the long session is always taken up by committee work ; now. this work j is done ami everything is ready for leg-, I islntion. I ll is thought l» ineniheiH of the House Judlcian Committee that the Kdiuiind'H polygamy hdi will Im passed this winter in a ire sidled form. The I KdUlulid’s hill would coiillocate thei church properly us well i s disestablish j the church, blit the bill as modified by the House committee will respect the rights of property. Willie it will dis establish the Mormon church aud pluck polygamy out by the roots. It up|>ears that <'apt.

Thus tlielr company will In- iudc|N*ndeut, and can look everybody squarely In the face whether the enterprise succeeds or fads.

It was a singular fact 1 that while Mr. Bluir was ehsiiuxilly 1 pleading their cause, not more than a score of Imlles were lii the gallery to smile down gratitude upon his effort. The Senator propoM-s to ask ii vote on the question at nil early day. and what ever may lie the result, women who wrant to vote cannot complain of neg lect ; for this speech in iN-lmlf of their necessities wan made on the third day of the session.

It Didn't Work. When Mr. Jenkins went lo Ids tied room nt half past one it was with the determination that lie would not be in terviewed by Mrs. Jenkins. So. ass*Nm as he hud entered the room aud set th« lamp on the table, he la'gun: “I loeaed the front dfNir. I pul thr cat out. Thu cook t»sik the silver to l*ed with her*.

Mr. Jenkins smiled to himself and felt that lie had hedged against all in quiry. aud a triiimphnnt look was on his face as lie took hold of the lamp to put out the light, nnd sighted a line for the la-d. when he was emthqiiake<l by a ringing laugh, nnd the query rrom Mrs. Jenkins: “Why didn’t you take off your lint?"

"Dove,” riald Mr. Sencook, as he en tered the door, "did you buy the things I gave you money for to-day "Yes,” answered the devoted wife, "mid. as you said that I was only to purchase wlint we really need, I didn't Invest in a new dress." “That's right, Matilda: you're a wife jto be proud of.
