was the only senator voting for the mo

motion lost. Then Mr. Blair demanded
the yeas nnd nay, but anain he was
himself the only senator to second the
demand. He thereupon proceeded to
state some of the views in the memo

would be virtually buried out of siirht.

HOUSE. Yesterdnv, just previous to
...i:..... ! til I !- kt! :
tmjwui llllll-lll, rtir, IlliUMI, til IIIKKOUI I,
moved that the house adjourn, and on n
division, the Stenkcr declared the motion
lost. Mr. iilnnd thereupon drmnnded
tellers, and m-conling to the record this
morning, the siicnker replied, "There
no provision for tellers." There was no
record of this fact made in the journal,
nnd this morning Mr. Iilnnd moved to
nave tne journal amended accordingly
The Sienker stated that he had made
his reply in nn interrogative lorm, and
that the gentleman from Missouri hnd
(iiiietly aciiuiesccd in it. The clmir was
inlormed that such details were not in
serted in the lournal. The chair sul
mitted Mr. Bland's motion to amend thr
journnl. and on a division declared the
motion lost by n vote ol 88 to 95. Mr.
Iilnnd demanded tellers. The speaker
utxiiirca w net tier tne gentleman from
Missouri hud discovered nnv ground
why tellers should be npnointcd. The
cluitr last night had suggested that lie
would like to hnve Ins attention culled
lo any provision regarding tellers. Mr.
illaud said that he had demanded tellers
under the general practice of the house.
The SK-akcr declined to entertain the de
mand lor tellers. Air. Iilnnd demanded
the yen and nays: but almost at the
same moment npiwuled from the decis
: r.i i n. , i.
mi ui urc vntiir. iic piicuKcr itniu inai
apiK-al came rather lute? but that he
would entertain it.
Mr. Mills argued that the vote bv tell
ers was as much a part ol the parliament
ary luw as n motion to adjourn. It wns
onlv a vote by which the house could
correct n decision of the spenker; nnd il
.i i .i:.i d. , .
mc iiiiunc inn nut iiiivc a rigut 10 cm
vote, tne iienkcr became a mere czar.
When the spenker refused to ix-rniit the
house to verify his count, he simply re
fused to allow the house to say whether
his division (right or wrong) should

thing done before and reversed by the
popular mind and porulnr vote. For
one, nsuii Aiiici ienn representative he pro
Mscil to make the issue on every point
on the rights of the minority. It wns an
American right. It was part of the gen
ius of American institutions, and he who
would trample upon it must take the rc-
Mr. (icur, of Iowa, said that the cus
tom of tellers grew up in the house under
a Sieciul rule. There was no such rule
now, and therefore it wns perfectly com
petent for the Sicnker to decide the re
sult of a (pies t ion a seemed best to liini
in his judgment.
Mr. Crisp, of Georgin, argued that the
decision deprived the minority of a con
stitutional right. He contended that
the demand lor tellers was a virtual
questioning; of the count of the speaker.
Mr. I'erkins, of Kansas, replied that no
one hnd challenged the correctness of the
Siriiker's count.
mr. crisp repnen mat tne gentlemen on
the democratic side undertook to be re-
siiectful. They questioned the count of
luc Spenser uiiocr parliamentary law.
They had usked for tellers. That find mil
necessarily retlected upon the Sienker. Il
might be that they thouuht he had
counted improperly or had nuiile a mis
take, and by culling lor tellers tucy could
hnve thnt mistake corrected in o respect
ful nnd decent way.
Mr. Culchcon. of Michigan, said that
if the argument of the gentleman from
Georgia, Mr. Crisp, wascorrect, and that
nn utlempt was Ining made loovertlirow
tue constitutionul rights of the minority,
the house wns in the throcsof revolution;
but he controverted the argument nnd he
challenged any one to show in the consti
tution any right given to the minority to
demnnd tellers. The constitutionul right
of the minority to the yens and nays was
not luterlered witn.
Mr. Crisp quoted Irom the record nlfor-
mrr itateincnt of the SK'nkcr thnt the
house was entitled lo tellers.
Mr. Carlisle entered into the discussion
of wlmt parliamentary law consisted in.
lie went buck to tne rules ol the knglish
house of common, uiHin which the rules
of previous congresses hud hecu iounileil.
Ill construing thut parliamentary law,
gentlemen must construe, it in relation to
lis modihcnlions by the rule of former
congresses. Those rule had been the re
sult ol experience, Memliers must look
buck to the manual which was printed
from year to year to find n set of rules
which the cxierience of memliers hud
shown to be applicable to the orderly
conduct of business in the house, so that
it bad been held, nnd rightly held, thnt
in the absence of conventional rules it
must look to those rules and apply them
so far ns could be to the situation in
which the house louiid itself. From time
iunnemotiul it bud been the law of Eng
lish speaking legislative assemblies thnt
no presiding olhcer co Jkl make an abso
lute final decision to bind the body over
which he presided. If the presiding officer
decided a question of order, it wns in the
power of any member to nppculand take
the judgment of the bodv itself. In the
English parliament it was in the nowe
of nnv single member to demand n divis
ion nnd have tellers. Congress had placed
a restriction on that rule, und hnd pro
vided thnt u count bv tellers must be uc
mnnded by one-fifth of a quorum. What
redress did a member have against
wrong count by the speaker if he could
not have the veas and nays? The man
who sat in the chair might do all the
legislative work transacted in this bodv
lie submitted that this house, in the nl
sencc of nnv conventional rules estab
lished by itself, was to be governed bv
the general parliamentary law ns modi
lied bv the rules heretofore prevailing.
In submitting nn apiieal to the house
the spenker said: "The chair Imsntwnv
been unable to sec how it is possible tor
a bouse which has p isscdoutol existence
to bind by rules and regulations, a house
which was to come inu existence in the
future. Recent decisions bv the sneukei
of the house have been to the effect thnt
the rules ol the last house did not beconu
the rules of the present lions.' directly
The chair is unable to see how thev cnn
become the rules ol the present house in
directly. The very fact that they have
wen made as rules shows clenrlv I he nee
cssity of a special enactment. If thev be
come by indirection tlc rules of the next
house it would not liecome necessary tn
re-enact them. I Ins house then is govern
ed by general pailiamentnrv law, such as
has Ikcii established in the same manner
that tne common law of England was
established, by rcjieated decisions nnd
general acquicsccusc ol the people m the
system which governs ordinnrv assem
blies. The present occupant of the chair
nils irequcntiy ordered tellers since the
beginning of this session of congress, and
is not unwilling to do so. But the quest ion
bus came up now us a tiucstum ol right:
and whatever the pci sonnl wishes of the
occupnnt nt the chair might lie, he was
obliged to decide in accordance with
what he regards ns the unmistukublc
parliamentary law ot the land
Mr. Cannon moved to lav the anneal
on i uc inoic.
Mr. Mills raised tbenoint of order thnt
mc parliamentary law recognized no
such motion.
The sneaker overruled the Doint of or-
dernnd submitted Mr. Cannon's motion.
It wns agreed to yeas, 13it; nuys. I.ltl
i uc i ucHiiou iicn recurren on air.
Illand's motion to amend the journal
aim u was lost, vens.i;iu; nays, l-iu.
The journal was then approved.
On motion of Mr. Candler of Mass ,
the World s I-mr committee wns granted
a leave to sit during the sessions of thr
Mr. Crnin of Texas, offered n resolution

to report witlnn one week whether tin

The house then resumed in the commit

A Prominent Manufacturer Killed
by HI Hrother-ln-l.aw.
Komk, Go., Innunrv 21. PcFoicst All-
good, president of Trion Factory, one ol
the wealthiest institution ol .North
Georgin, was shot nnd instantly killed
at 8 o'clock this evening by Dr. f. II. S.
Holmes, his hrothcr-iii-luw and one ol
the most prominent and popular ol Geor
gia's physicians.
Alkood nnd long cherished ill will to
wards Holmes for some business mutters
Ik'tween them, nnd had Ireoucntlv threat
ened his lile. Holmes had avoided All-
good for year, and went out ol town to
avoid meeting him. To-dnv Allgond
came down from Trion Factory to Koine
on un evening train and waited for
Holmes in bis otlice door.
Holmes, who bad had n vague wani
ng, sought to reach bis office by a back
street, Messrs. McKcldcn and Mnctoek,
of Tennessee, friends of Dr. Holmes, hud
lieen hunting with linn. When the pnrtv
Irrw up m trout of the office Allgood ad-
aiiced with n drawn pistol on Holmes.
I he latter shot Allgood twice with a
louble-burrelled shotgun loaded with
bird shot, both shots taking effect, the
first shivering the jugular vein, und the
second breaking the neck completely.
Allgood tell at the first shot, then hall
rose trying to draw his pistol. When he
received the second shot he lell on his
lace and instantly expired. Holmes cx-
luimed : I wu forced to do it to save
my own life. I am sorry, so sorry, but
he hunted mc down, nnd for the sake of
mv wile and my son I had to kill him."
Holmes immediately lurrciidcreiLiotlie
officers and is resting in hi own apart
ments in charge of n denutv sheriff. The
genera I sentiment agrees that the killing
was clearly in ell-delence, and, although
both men were exceedingly popular, the
urrent ot sympathy is strongly with Dr.

A Hull-Committee of Three Ap
pointed to ConHlder the HprliiK-
er KeHolutlon To vole ou the
Matter Next Thursday.
Washington, Junnnry 21. The special
bouse committee on the World's Fair held
its first meeting this morning in the
room ol the house committee on terri
tories. All ot the members were present
except Messrs, riuien nna Howden. Mr,
Springer culled up his resolution provid
ing thnt the house shall proceed next
Thursday to select the site for the fair by
onnot, and u was discussed lor nn hour:
Mr. Springer urged the importance ol
speedy action on the proposition. H
Held thnt by its action on the common
resolution Inst week, the house hnd vir
tuallv decided that the matter must he
settled as early as possible, and thnt the
committee was practically under instiuc-
tions and was as nun' n bound bv them ns
it they had been formulated. He argued
mat the bouse could not move in t he
matter until it hud first settled where the
bur was to be held. Mr. Hilt also declar
ed in favor of the immediate selection ol
the site bv the house and pointed out
how the delay jeopardized the chances of
the l.nr. He said that the committee on
liireign affairs had been working for some
nine un tne nor nius anu and practically
tne completed preliminary arrangements
All ot the results ol their work could be
made use of bv this committee, but the
site should be hrst agreed upon.
Mr. I-lower thought that the date fixed
for balloting in the Springer resolution
I I liursdny next was a little too soon
lie suggested that the resolution lie re
ported providing tor debate in the house
next Mondav, one hour and a half to be
illowed for the presentation of claims ol
c.icii city, to be tollowcd bv balloting on
I uesnny. .Mr. HelUen nt this point ex
pressed a doubt ns to whether unv fair
oiiki be held in in'JJ. It should be hrst
settled thnt the government would give
money and nut to the tair liclore an at
tempt was made to select the site. This
irought the Washington men to the floor
with n strong objection. Thev contend-
(I thnt to adopt Mr. Ik-Idea s course
would result in combiningill of theothcr
(intending cities against Washington
which must rclv upon the government's
hnnnciul nid. Mr. llelilen s men was that
1 historical celebration could be held in
18112. to lie followed a vear later bv the
world's fair. The chairman's attention
was here called to the language of the re
solution under which the committee was
ippointcd which Sienks of the world's
lair in 181)2, nnd the point wns made
hat the committee hnd no alternative
mil could (leal with no proposition thnt
lid not concern the fair to be held in thut
Mr. Frank of Missouri, offered n resolu-
ion thnt the Springer resolution provid
ing for balloting by the house next Thurs-
lay be relerred to a sub-committee ol
three, with instructions to report at the
next committee meeting. Subsequently
be motion wns modibed so ns to tmiKc
the chnirmnn of the lull committee also
linirman of the suli-coiiimittec and to
hove it report next Thursday.
Mr. springer said thnt it tins motion
wns defeated, he would move to modilv
us proposition so ns to ha vet he debute in
the house next Mondnvnudthc balloting
fucsdny ns suggested bv Mr. Flower.
New York memliers took alarm at this.
nwever. ns it was npimrentlv the object
of Cbicngoians to get the chairman to
otc and ascertain his views. The Cbi
cngoians had calculated on Mr. Flower
voting with them in support of his own
proposition. This would leave the re
maining three members present beside
the chnirmnn in opposition and compel
the chnirmnn to vote to break n tic, and
t wa not regarded as desirable that the
hiorinnn should lie committed at this
nrly date. So when Mr. Frank's resolu
tion was put, two Chicago men found
hemsclves alone in opposition and it
prevailed. So the chairman was in
structed to appoint u sub-committee to
insider the Springer resolution nnd re
port next Thursday when tne committee
ill meet again. 1 hcsiib-committcc was
selected, as follows: Chairman, Mr. Lnn-
cr. nnd Messrs. Ilitt nnd Flower. The
nuiiiittec decided to hear no argument
resicclitig the site of the fair. Then the
couiiriltee instructed the chnirmnn to
ask for iwrmissiou to sit during the ses
sion of the house, and adjourned till

The Old Year hits drawn to a close,
nnd with the beginning of the New Year
we wish to thank the public for their
patronage and recognition of our efforts
to do our full duty. He are fully con
icious that it is to them that we owe the
incxwcted success of the past year, in
which our business lias been more than
doubled, and we can only regard it as a
new evidence that our business maxims
.?re such as to cause our customers to
have confidence in us and attract those
who are cautious in dealing with any
Pharmacist until they have become fully
assured of the nature und extent of his
'lusiness principles. In out dealing with
the public we realhe that the most scru
pulous care nnd honesty are paramount
m importance. If these are virtues in
ill ordinary business transactions, they
'icconie sacred duties in Phurmacy, and
without them no one can lie a true Phar
macist. The health, maybe the lile, 01
those dealing with the Apothecary de-
lends upon them. Uc consider it our
nost sacred duty to shun adulterations
ind spoiled as well as inferior drugs.
They constitute an evil from which Phnr-
nacy suffers no less than the public. The
;vil is not a new one, inaugurated in late
vears; it has existed as long as there
were men whose cupidity was stronger
than their sense of justice, and it will
loubtless continue as long as there may
'ie men with conceptions of business so
ague that they expect to purchase gold
for the moncv value of dross. There are
no other moral principles required for
ransncting a Pharmaceutical business
than are necessary fur any other business.
Unwavering integrity thut remains unin-
iuenced by the visions of gold along the
road of questionable or deceitful prac
tins is the only foundation for success
that is worthy the mime; it is so in
i-ery pursuit, and more particularly in
Pharmacy, where ns a matter of neces
iity it must be combined with constant
vigilance in all directions, so us to secure
:ill possible snfegiinnis.
These are the principles which we hnve
ndcavored to live up to, and to which
we trust our increasing success is due.
We hope our former pations will show
the same kindness towmd us in the fu
ture thnt they have in the pust, knowing
thnt no action ol ours will ever make
tliem regret a continuance ol their fa-
ors. Yours trulv.
