Yesterday's Session of the Senate Was Both Brief and Busy. Senator Tawney Inveigled Into Buying' Cig-ars for the House. In Committee of the Whole ffiany Measures Are Ad vanced. Nothing Exciting 1 and the Usual Forensic Contest Was Omitted. The senators pretty generally attend ed divine services at their bones and spent the Sabbath evening in the bosom of their families. Then the storm yes terday morning intervened, and the larger number of the whole found themselves unable to reach the senate chamber at the hour named for com mencing—lo o'clock. The few that did come had pleasure instead of business for innocent diversion"! There was a passage of pleasantries between Presi dent Clougli and Senator Tawncy, who despaired of getting a quorum, and he moved to adjourn. But Senator Stevens is a glutton for work, and he met the issue with a call of the senate. It was a little tough on the sergeant-at-arms. for what was the poor fellow to do in the face of the blizzard? He hadn't the slightest idea of the whereabouts of the delinquent senators, but Senator Ste vens, with a shiver, insisted upon the call, and the sergeant had to make a pretense of bunting up enough senators to make a quorum. Senator Tawney still had no faith in the proposition and undertook to retire upon the subterfuge of getting a cigar. President (.'lough's argus eyes detected the move, and the sergeant-at-arms was instructed to deter the senator from Winona. "If the president pleases. I'll take the privilege of going out to get a cigar," pleaded Senator Tawney in a pathetic tone. "The senator from Winona asks unanimous consent,'' said President (.lough, "to bring a box of cigars for the senate." "1 move that it be at the expense of the president,'' retorted Tawney. and smiled complacently as tiov. Clougn suggested: "That will be the course of the senate unless objection is raised." The presi dent got the cigars, however, and then he tailed attention to Kule o'J of the senate, prohibiting smoking. So the first hour was spent, but finally a quorum was reported and routine work was taken up. With Senator Day in the chair, considerable business was done in the committee of the whole. COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE. Lit-iitiu'* 'lortiraji<- and the Pom* Interest Bill*. Senator Lieuau's bill, relating to the manner of procedure for the collection of mortgages, was the first measure taken up in the committee of the whole in tin senate. An exception of oper ation with banks and trust companies was the feature that Senator John D. I Smith objected to. The bill provides that in the ease of mortgage security, the security shall be exhausted before the person can be held liable in an action to collect. Senator Donnelly held that it was a good bill as a whole, although he doubted the expediency of the exception concerning bank and trust companies. Senator Stevens thought the exception wise. Were it not for that provision in the bill, and should it become a law, one effect woo d be to drive banking capital out of the state. It was here discovered that the bill had not been printed, and Senator Tawney moved, therefore, that the committee report progress and that the bill be printed. This was accepted by the author, and then, upon the motion of Senator £. R. Smith, the tour inter est bills pending were made a special order for Thursday atternoou at 2:30. 11. F. ISO was reported, and it "was recommended to pass. It provides that the liquor dealer who makes applica tion for a license must deposit $10 with the application. S. F. 331, changing the present system of electing town supervisors so that terms of otiiee shall alternate, was dis cussed at some length. It is a bill that grew out of the good roads convention held in January. Senator Me Hale thought the present system is all right, and he asked how the change can offer benefit to the people. Senator I'robst h'eld moved for the indefinite postpone ment of the measure, and Senator Ham mer approved the bill. Senator Tawney explained that town supervisors are members of the board of health, ami the secretary of the state board of health reports that before the town supervisors become familiar with the work, and be fore they can be instructed, an entire new board is elected. The bill provides that there shall always be two old mem bers. Senator Hoinpe Suspicious. Senator Hompe was suspicious of the solicitude of the city members lor the interests of the farmers. Senator Kelly offered an amendment, providing for the election in 1894. This met with Sen ator llompe's opposition. Senator Hammer was unequivocally arrayed against the proposed change, and Sena tor Tawney replied that the farmer members were too jealous. The bill originated with the farmers of Winona county, and a recent farmers' institute had unanimously passed a resolution asking for the passage of the bill. Sen ator Loin men expressed his entire satis faction with the present law. He favored short terms of office, and the nearer an office can be to the people the better the service. Senator Probst field's motion prevailed. FHOBS.tTK LAW. To Quiet rill.- Alter the Court Passes Upon the Same.

THE PAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY MORNING, MATfcCII 14, JBf»st. cure sales was reeomnipnted to pass upon lilt* senate going into the commit tee "of the. whole in the afternoon, as was Senator Millale's bill concerning deeds, mortgages and conveyances. Senator Kiesier spoke at some length upon Senator Stevens' bill, relating to the administration of the estates of ', deceased persons. He. urged that it is a meritorious measure. Senator Stevens explained that it is a curative act. Sena tor Mcllai» offered an amendment so that the heir may appear in probate court by attorney or in person. The " object of the bill is to protect innocent purchaser* of estates from . the possibility of an unknown subsequently appearing and laying claim. It is a limitation net, in other words. Senator Craven feared that some isolated case may come up in which hii heir may be cheated out of the property that 'should pass to him. A child would not know about its rights, but after growing up It should have tho right to recover. Senator Stevens was willing to amend, but he held that while the bill as it is might do an injustice in one ease, it would do good in hundreds of cases. The bill was recommended to pass. Senator Sevatson's bill upon lien of debts and claims relates to the same species of law. It is copied trom the New York law. There was no opposi tion and it was recommended to pass. Cholera Resolution Killed. John Day Smith moved to recommend the Indefinite postponement of the joint resolution asking congress fora strin gent enactment to provide protection against a possible cholera epidemic. He said he did not think the legislature should meddle with a subject about which it knows so little. Senator l'robstfield charged in drastic terms that the opposition to the bill seemed to be prompted by the spirit that is so often noticed in die senate— to legislate for the plutocrats and against the interests of poor humanity. He urged the pas sage of the bill, but Senator Smith's mo tion prevailed. AXTI-SCAIjPKKS' BILL. Senators Will Hear A rjj"tnei»tH on It Tonight. The anti-scalpers' bill Is to havo a bearing tonight before tho senate com mittee on judiciary. It is expected by those members who are opposed to laws of this character on principle that the senate will condemn the bill outright or radically amend it. Yesterday it came to the ears of the legislators that North Carolina had followed the example of New York and repealed such a law. which was enacted in 189 L The North Carolina law, commonly called the "Pennsylvania" law, from the fact that the Pennsylvania Railroad com pany was the power behind the throne in securing its passnire, made it unlaw ful for any but a duly authorized rail road ticket agent to sell railroad tickets. The North Carolina memoers of the Ticket brokers' association continued the business in the face of the law, and two of them were indicted. The lower court found them guilty under the law, and the association took the cases to the North Carolina Supreme court. This body reversed the decision of the lower courts on the ground that the law under which the brokers had been indicted was unconstitutional, and they were dismissed. SENATIC ROITIXE. Minor Bills PaKNcd (pon In Ordi nary Sequence. S. F. 395, MM, :;!)7 and 3'JS. the bills in troduced by the judiciary committee, and dealing with the subjects of trusts, deeds, new trials, the probate code and the matter of witness fees, were recom mended to pass. S. F. 197, Grafe's bill allowing an ap peal from the decisions of county super intendents in the examinations for teachers' certificates, was nof* acted upon, owing to opposition displayed. Progress was reported. The committee rose and the report was adopted. The senate took a recess until 3 p. nt. Little else of special importance was done. Senate File 413, relating to I streets and highways, and coming from the committee on munici pal corporations, was recommended to pass as the Muskallunge bill, amending the game an J fish laws. The bill relating to the sentence and parole of prisoners was indefinitely postponed. House File 893, relating to the proposed organization of new coun i ties, was recommended to pass, but a j constitutional question was afterwards raised, and this bill was withdrawn and referred to the juiliciary committee after a short and decisive debate. Sen ate File :iS\. emanating from fciie com mittee on sanitary affairs and quaran tine and relating to the state board of health, was recommended to pass. The life of Senate File 372, Sanborn's bill, governing the parole system at the state reformatory, was saved for the nonce owing to the light attendance when the committee arose, and it was laid on the table temporarily, to be taken up today, probably, for a more complete discussion. OCCUPIED HIS OLD PEW.I \ Sat oil 1 Establishes an Important Precedent. Wi>tciif.sti:k, Pa., March 13.— For the first time in six years, yesterday, W. A. Bowen, of Westehester,occupied his old pew in St. Agnes' Catholic churcti, this place. Acting upon the then exist ing rule's and laws of the Catholic church in this country as they were in terpreted by the ecclesiastical author ities of that body, he was excluded from holding it by the rector. Rev. S. Spauld- Ing. The pew was yesterday restored to him by the same rector, acting under the advice and instructions which he last week received from Mgr. Satolli at Washington, whither Father Spauld ing went In reference to a decision pending the latter. The case is the first on record in this country where the church has decided in an appeal against a decision of a priest that all Catholic children must attend the Catholic parish school under pain of the Bacramentfl oeing denied the parents who refuse to send their children to tlie pari>h schools a:ul of vacating their pews in the church, and in this case it haa been decided against the pastor. Sale Postponed. ' Corvai.i.is, Or., March 13. —The sale of the Oregon Pacific railroad has been continued until June 28. The object of continuance is to place the property in the hands of an impartial receiver, and also for the purpose ot obtaining-, time to send experts over the road to deter mine the value of an extension of the line east of the Cascade mountains, and $50,000 lias been placed In the hands of Blair «ft Co., of New York, for the pur pose of partially discharging the claims and the .back pay due the men, which aggregates £10.000. The company is in arrears since April 1, IS'J2. Suicide Identified. New Yobk, March IS.— The young woman who committed suicide at the Coleman house yesterday was identified this morning as that of Leonide Coz zens, eighteen years old, of 240 West Thirteenth street. Tne identification wns made by Mine. Wood, a dress maker, wlio made the dress the young woman wore when sho killed herself. Miss Cozzena belonged to a wealthy family and lived with her mother at the address liven. It is believed that dis appointment in love was the cause of the suicide. Dempsey's Appeal Filed. Philadelphia, March 13.— The ap peal ml petition for a special alocatur in the case of The Commonwealth vs. Hugh F. Dempsey.who stands convicted in the Allegheny county courts of "felonious and aggravated assault and battery/" and in which charge is con tained Ins alleged attempts at poisoning the Homestead ironworkers, has been filed in the supreme court. SAVINGS BANK LOANS The House Declares Itself De cidedly in Favor of a Limitation, And Refuses to Extend the Territory in Which They May Be Made. Mr. Fletcher's Bill Stirs Up the Solitary Debate of the Day. A Bare Quorum of the Repre sentatives Transacts Business. Minnesota savings banks will not be allowed to extend the field or their loaning operations— not a little bit. If the disposition evinced in the house yesterday is any criterion, a bill to limit the territory at present covered by their loans would meet with favor. The pre vailing sentiment seems to be that loans of savings banks ought to be con tin ed to Minnesota alone, so that farmer I borrowers could have a show to get needed cash with less trouble and at a lower rate than under present circum stances. This conviction was voiced all through an hour's debate yesterday afternoon on a bill introduced by Mr. Fletcher, of llennepin. which debate Is given below. Beyond the flurry raised by Fletcher's bill, nothing of even ordinary interest transpired in the house. The attendance was so light that even much of the time given to general orders was spent in bootless talk. On many of the bills con sidered the committee simply reported progress, which is in reality no progress at all. Fifty-eight members, just a quo rum, were reported as present at roll call in the morning, and Speaker Pro Tern. Wyuian decided to" go ahead with business. Not a new bill'" was intro duced, and general orders were taken up. with Mr. lijoige in the chair. Action taken on bills discussed is noted else where, except in cases of reporting progress MANY MISSING From Their Seat* in the Hall of Representatives. On taking the chair after recess Mr. Wvman anxiously surveyed an appalling array of empty seats, but he ordered business to proceed. No one raised the point of "no quorum," and Mr. Fletch er, from the committee on judiciary, re ported bacK several minor bills, with recommendations favorable and otlrer wise. The report was adopted in a per functory manner, without any show of interest. The house then resumed considera tion of general orders, with Mr.Vansaut in the chair. Very little talk was in duUed in by members. Thirty-seven bills were considered in a listless fash ion, some of them taking up only time j enough to read the title, and adopt a motion to report progress. About a score were acted on definitely, as follows: S. F. 400, Tawuev's bill to provide for | protecting employes of street railway I companies; recommitted to committee on incorporations. S. F. 127, Crandall's bill to compel railroad companies to post bulletins of delayed trains; to pass. S. "F. 54, Stevens' bill relating to va cation of streets and alleys; to pass. : 11.

F. 19, once killed and afterward placed on general .orders, which would allow savings banks to invest In several states where they cannot Invest at present, Mr. Fletcher made a speech for ; it. and moved that it be recommended to pass. Mr. O'Neill protested that its passage would take 14,000,000 out of the state, and make it harder even than at present for farmers to boriow money. .Ho claimed they cannot now get the money they want at 10 per cent. : j Mr. Cole, or Otter Tail, moved to amend the Fletcher motion by recom mending the bill for indefinite postpone ment. Mr. Turreli spoke earnestly for the bill, and Mr. Gorman followed in the same strain. Mr. Fleming had seen no reason to change his mind since voting acainst the bill when it was up before. There fore he was opposed to it, he said, and proceeded to argue at length against its wisdom or advisability. He considered that the present law. placed a wise limitation on the loaning opperations of savings banks and hoped it would not be tampered with. Mr. Gorman amain spoke for the bill, halding it would be for the benefit of depositors. Mr. Williams took similiar ground. In his opinion, there was no ttood reason to prevent the widening of the field of operations of savings banks. Messrs. T. Cole, Jacobsou and Lock wood lired*a broadside of questions at the Chesterfield of the Ilennepiu dele gation, who introduced and cared for tie bill on its courat* Mr. Fletcher stood to his work like a hero, making really a creditable showing for his po sition, but thu pace grew so hot that Chairman Vansaut had to taice a hard pull on the reins to keep his cults in the middle of the road. Mr. Maguire could see no use for such a widening of the territory of savings banks, but he could see great possible danger. He thought a law to limit their territory even more than at present would be indorsed by the people. All the money tho savings banks wanted to loan could be placed at good interest in Western Minnesota, he said, and Mr. Fletcher was assured that he could find plenty of agents to handle the coin. Mr. Turrell maintained that savings banks should luive the same privilege as other financial institutions to loan out money where they could place it to the best advantage. Mr. Staples expressed himself in fa vor of the bill, and Mr. Jacobson made one of his red-hot talks against it. Mr. Fletcher undertook to question the gentleman from Lac gui l'arle, but tha Western whirlwind took him otf his feet as a cyclone would a village church, and the Hennepiu man gave up in de spair. Tlieu, on a standing vote, the house once more and for the last time killed the movement to extend the limit ot operations of state savings banks. A short debate occurred on 11. F. 567, which would amend the present law governing the salo of intoxicating liq uors so that violators thereof could be tilted or imprisoned, in the discretion of justices. The outcome was the adoption of a motion to report progress, in order that the bill might be amended in some particulars. H. F. 316 and 11. F. (508, providing for taxation of sleeping car companies. were read and considered together. Mr. llor tou stated that the bills were prepared jointly by members of the house and senate judiciary committees, under a joint resolution. One, he snid, provides for a gross earnings tax and the other for a property tax. The design was to let the companies take which method they liked, and the bills should bo car ried through together in order to be of any use in accomplishing the object aimed at. Both measures were recom mended to pass without opposition. 11. F. No. :UO, Mr. Jacobson's bill re quiring railroad companies to afford transfer facilities to other connecting lines and to establish joint rates, was taken up during the morning session. Mr. Jacobson, In moving that the bill be recommended to pass, offered an amendment providing that no company shall be required to transfer its freight cars to another line when its own road reaches the point of destination, even if the distance is greater; provided, however, that the charge shall not be greater than the rate is over the shorter road. The amendment was adopted and the bill was recommended to pass as amended. This measure and th* Greer bill, con sidered together, incorporate even more drastic regulations than the Currier bill of last session, which was so bitterly fought and ultimately defeated. NEW CAPITOL BILL. Indications Favorable to Itß Pas sage Tomorrow. Tomorrow afternoon the capitol bill will be a soecial order at 2::3 O. So far as the feeling among the members can be analyzed, there will be slight opposi tion, except on the extreme ground that the stale can get alone for a while yet without a new capitol. It is not appar ent, however, that enough members will take this view to endanger the pas sage of the bill. Nmie objection has been raised to the "three-quarter-mile limit" provision, but it is safe to say that the Ramsey delegation will pull this pin from under the opponents of the bill by accepting an amendment, it one should be offered, to designate the present site, or so much more adjacent ground as may be neces sary. Careful catwassing warrants the statement that, barring any complica tion not now in evidence, a good ma jority of the house will vote for the bill. Talks with state officers have convinced many members who were undecided as to what stand to take tl:at a new build ing will be an absolute necessity within a very brief period. The time in which the buiidine is to be erected is bound to witnu&s a tremendous growth in Minne sota. NOTES OF THE HOUSE. The normal school committee has rn tnrned from its trip to Tracy to examine sites for a proposed new normal school. The hustling little city offers a selection of several sites containing twenty acres each, and also to li^at and light the building for thirty years free of cost if it is erected. There seems little likeli hood, however, of its laudable ambition bointr gratitied by the present legisla ture. Editor C. F. Macdonald, of the St. Cloud Times* was an interested visitor en the floor of the boose yesterday. .Senator Dean's bills to repeal the laws creating the offices of gasoline inspector and weigher of coal and wood in St. Paul came up yesterday in the house, and were referred to tne Ramsey county delegation.

Why Could She Not Burn the Hook as Sli3 Twice Trie I to Do? Certainly This Is a Most Singular and Remarkable Latter. Following Is one of the strangest of letters. It Is from the poetess and author, Mrs. F. llelsten, who resides at 404 Bedford avenue, Brooklyn; N. V.: "One day my door-bell rang. 1 man aged to go down stairs to answer it.
