This being the cae, it is the dutv of the senate to resort to sec ondary prool to determine which ol tlie eluimants is entitled to the scat. As such secondary proof it is competent to show that the house of representatives una the senate, at the time they voted fur the United States senators contained a muioritv of members duly circled to incsc oouics; nnu unit in mi. case inere was no change in the membership of the Montana legislature Irom the time 11 was orennixed.

He affirmed that there is, and thut it is in fuvor ol his clients. 2. Is there, or was there, s leinslnture to elect senators? There wns, lie said, and the certificate of the clerk of the enmmissoners of Silver How county is the O'lly credential of the right of repre sentation from that county to sit thereon. 3.

Governor Fleming, of Florida, nnd the attorney general of thnt State who are in the city on official business, called nt the White House to-tlny and had a cotilcrrnce with the President. One of the mnttcrs dis cussed was the recent assassination of Deputy Marshal Saunders nt fjuincy, and the governor assured the President that the State authorities would cer tainly assist in bringing the guilty per sons to justice. The President suggested thut tliey see the attorney general, and they subsequently had an interview with ihnt gentleman. It is not likely thnt the authorities here will take any action in this matter until the report of Marshal Allien is received. I his document will probably arrive on Monday's mail.

BTRIKIKGI.V nEAt'TIFVL TRANSFORMATION. A Splendid and Valuable Add I lion lo the First Class Hotel Facilities of Aaheville, and one That will be Popular. The Oaks hotel, at the corner of Wood- fin and Oak street, is now so far com plete as to lie opeacd for the reception of guests and ndds another star to the bright galuxy of Asheville first class houses. The situation is an extremely familiar one to the people of the city und to mnnv in the habit of visiting it in connection with certain annual ceremonies. It is on the site of the original boarding house ol the Asheville Female College, and is in fact so changed, enlarged and improved as to suggest no memory of what it nee wns. The old structure forms only loundntion for the new, or nucleus for adornment and convenience. Out of very modest architectural claim has grown a ombinntion of such utility, size nnd pict- urcsquecffcct as to fix the most impassive eye. From among the surrounding oaks id against the background ol the glis tcning masses of white pines arise 01 stund the long towering mass of build ings with their projecting porches, theii long eolonades, and the tower crested luttlements, crowned with the tall as piring pinnacle of the main tower; and A hcthcr viewed close nt hand, or from lome (.distant point of view where per- pective lines run favorably to group the whole into a clustered muss, the effect is fine and beautiful. The hotel building itself is 160 feet long, und including the basement, which is all above ground, is five stories high. As we have said, little of the old building remains. Addition has been made to the length and to the height, and the exter nals are entirely altered. Access to the principal floor is had by a magnificent projecting portico renched by n Hight 01 Htuirs of easy ascent opening out in every lirection. From this is entered the of fice or reception roum, the old Literary Hall of the college, but changed to ac commodate it to its present uses. Off' of his opens nn ample, most licnutiful par lor, handsomely furnished. Through each story run long and wide passages ir halls, along which arc the chambers if good size, well furnished, well lighted tnd vcntilnUd, nnd furnished with ull he comforts of grates, gus lights, elec tric bells, etc. There is uniformity ol onvenience on nil the floors, even to the innnsnrd, in which the height of the rooms is eleven feet four inches. On each il the floors, nnd at convenient distances from each other, nre bath rooms mid losets, the baths being either hot or old ; and through the house is conveyed tbundance of water forced by pressure. Hid readily available for personal use or safeguard against fire. A double series if staircases make easy access from story to story, ensuring privacy to guests, and also ready exit in case of fire ; and in this respect the facilities nre admirable nnd worthy of imitntion; for not only is es- npe made easy by these staircases, but here is nowhere that the broad veran- la's around every story would not be available with independent communica tion with the ground. Going through ill the stories, which are alike in the main, we ascend to the roof through a vestibule in the mnin tower and find lurselves sixty-seven feet from the ground with the magnificent panorama of mountain scenery around us. We will not, however, dwell on this, a thrice told tale to us at home, but none the less udmirnble to strangers, who, Irom any point in this hotel, from the roof, from the vcrnndns, from the windows, an enjoy prosccis that will never wenry. In this tower, the pinnacle ol which reaches the height of 140 lect, is in reric, an outlook, 100 feet from the ground. The roof is so arranged with stepping pieces thut it can be traversed with ease and safety from one end to the other, nnd will without question prove very popular pnrt of the establish ment. Descending to the first floor, we find first the offices of the proprietors, very pleasant and cosy rooms, then t.,e kitchens which are teniirarily occupied until another building is specially pro- ided for them, and then the dining room, improved by the addition of n double row of columns down the centre. In all there urc one hundred rooms in the hotel, about eighty-five of which are guest chambers. They arc well furnished and all light mid airy. All arc lit with gas made on the premises, nnd the gus fixtures are very elegant. The situation of the hotel is one of its features; without the ndvnntnge of a de tached elevation, it is still elevated enough to give it commanding views in every direction. Its ;iwn nmplc grounds are covered with grass, and shaded with fine oaks, and attached to it are the fine grounds ol the college, comprising thir teen ncress of well shaded ground, over which the guests of the hotel may ram ble, and enjoy all the luxuries of fresh forest atmosphere and the healthful odor of the turf; nnd through n pnrt of these grounds they may slim ten their distance to the city ; or if they prefer to ride, the electric railway runs at the very doors at short intervals, nnd nt all the hours of the day and late in the night; con necting also with the railroads for nil points in the country. The hotel is the enterprise of Dr. T. J. Hnrgan and Prof. H, J. Grecnwell. Dr. Cured Meat and Mutton As well us the very finest fresh meats will be found ut Martin's Market, 50 S.Main street. Hargun is well known in Asheville, hav ing successfully practiced his specialty here for the post four years. He came here from Indiana, but is a Kentuckian. Prof. Greenwell is from Kentucky also, for fifteen years president of a college nt Bnrdstown. He is a man of fine culture, and came here influenced largely by con. siderntions of health. They have both engaged in their present undertaking with all their energies. They show this by the expenditures they have mnde. In addition to the cost of the original build. ings and grounds, $12,000, they hnve spent in additions and improvements $17,500, and in furniture $0,500, making nn outlay up to the present a sum of $3(1,000. Tiiis will be increased bv the expenditures on outbuildings, stables, etc. It mny be remarked that all the work is of the must Inithtul and substnn tinl character. A good deal of work yet remains to be done, such ns the introduc- tion ol an elevator, steam heating ap paratus, the electric annunciator, etc. The furniture of the whole building is of Asheville manufacture, and as far as possible, everything used in construction mil equipment has been purchased here, The most gratifying feature of the whole constructive is that the architect and builder is a native of Asheville, Mr. 0. 1). Revel. He is still a young man, but he shows remarkable and original architectural genius. The exterior ol the building is unique, picturesque nnd pleas ing, while in the interior there is tbi prevalence of a practical judgment, con trolled by excellent taste, but which makes practical utility the guiding prin- iple. The house is now open for guests, and without question will command its full share of popular favor. A SEVERE REBVKE. The Jacksonville Tlmes-Vnlon on the Kece.it Assassination. Jacksonville, Fin.. February 15. The Times-Union suvs editorially this mimi ng: I he people of Honda, without reeard to party, arc unanimously deploring and leuouiicing the lirutnl ami cowardly as sassination of Deputy Marshal Saunders at Quincy. For sucli a vile murder no right thinking man can offer the least ex cuse or pulliiitiuii ; there is nothing to he suggested in mitigation of the crime. the cold, cruel, premeditated manner 01 its execution Hikes its perpetration be yond the pnle of public sympathy, and they must suffer the consequences ol a Iced so tool that Us very atrocity re ieves Cnilsden countv and the people ol Florida and the South of any suspicion ofsympnthy or complicity. What mo tive lor such a villainous purpose could any mind, one degree removed from idi ocy or insanity suggest ? Organized re sistance to wrong would be n thousand Id more honorable. The sudden bund- ng together ol men who felt the stini! ol (KTSccutiou, the killing of nn officer in fair open resistance and defiance of legal ized wrong might excite a measure 01 public respect; but to entice nn unsus- K'ctmg man into some secluded spot nnd here coldly nnd cruelly assassinate him. livests the net of every clement of hero ism. We know the people ol middle Florida. They are brave, candid, honor able. They maintain their rights in nn open honorable tnunner. The public will not visit upon them the con sequences of the act which no honornbh community can countenance. This killing wns hedged about by mere personul mo tive and no honorable man will seek to inflict uKn nnv community the respon sibility for such oulrnge an outrage in engennce ! personal wrong. v nut could lie exiccted of murdering one man in sixty millions? What public wronit is righted ? One man is but a drop in the ocean of human affairs, vital ns his bring mnv be to his lainilv and friends, inthis rilicul iuncttire we should do nothing to second the call fur United States troops, nothing to justtly t lie judicial proceedings which have been condemned everywhere throughout the country. This murder is n wound which no patriotic, ho.iorable, public spirited citizen would inflict upon his ieoplc. We still maintain that this United Stntes court wns organized to promote partisan purposes, partisan persecution, and law abiding everywhere would keep it on the delensive. i'assive resistance lo wrong is more potent thnn ill advised spasmodic rcs'stnuceol n phys ical character, which inflicts s deepei wound upon the Mate than could ne ntlicted oil nnv individual. .Mcl-orland s conspirator, Mitchell, was promptly arrested by the local authorities and lodged in jail. Gadsden county should exhaust all its resources for the arrest ot the guilty parties. The murder wus no doubt instigated bv crsonul enmity, nno the assassins should not be permitted to throw any of the responsibility for the crime upon people to whom they have done such grievous wrong." End of the Navasas Trials. Baltimore. February 15. James Tns- ker, Ed. Woodl'ork and Norman Webster, three of t.ic Navussa rioters, pleaded guilty this morning to manslaughter.
