The validity and tho constitutional
ity of the Sunday rest 'law of the stato
of Georgia have been sustained by the

L. X- Uennington, superintendent of
transportation of the Alabamn Great
Southern Railroad, was- indicted in
Dodo county, Georgia, March 18, 189.1
in violation of tho stato law which for
bids tho running of any frolght trains
in tho state on tho Sabbath day. Ho
pleaded not guilty, setting up in
defenso that the caso was in conflict
with the federal constitntion giving
power to"rogulale commerce among the
Ho was convicted and the conviction
wus affirmed by the snprcme court of
tho state. From that judgment the
caso camo to tho supremo conrt of tho
United States. Mr. Justice Harlan
delivered tho opinion of tho court,
' that such n law, although In a lim
ited degree affecting interstate com
merce, Is not for that reason a needless
intrusion upon the dbinnlh of the fed
eral jurisdiction, nor strictly a regula
tion of interstate commerce, but con
sidered in its own natnrc, 1b an ordi
nary police regulation, designed to
scenro tho well being and to proniQte
the general welfare of tho people within
the state by which it was established
and therefore not Invalid by force
alone of the constitution of tho United
Aid for District Charities.
After tho reading of the District of
Columbia appropriation bill was begnn
in tho Sonato Mr Piatt and Mr. Peffer
opposed any appropriations for private
charities, whether sectarian or not
Mr. Teller declared that tho govern
ment charities wore not sufficient to
jnstify'tlio abandonment ot tho present
system. Mr. Shormnn, Mr, Oonnun,
nnd Mr. Cockrell stood by Mr. Teller,
and after Mr. Allison, chairman of the
appropriation committee, had said that
the committee, amendments were,
designed to uiako the largest possible

was short lived. Tho House, with
practical unanimity, suppresed him.

to tho clerk's desk. Tho resolution
was as follows r

sale of bonds without tho anthnrlty of

which makes United States notes and

When the clerk concluded reading
Mr. Howard, who had arisen to

lender of tho republicans, who raised
the question of consideration against

promptly put up by the speaker and by
a practically unnnlnions voto the
House declined tq give Mr. Howard a
