This was a field day for the constitutional law yers of the senate. A resolution by Senator Tillman (dem. S. C.) provoked general debate on the question of e dividing: line between state and jfederat control over the regulations of jthe sales of liquor. Senators Bailey, Bacon, Knox. Culberson and other lead , lng senate lawyers took advantage of this first opportunity of the session to ; speakt and none of them seemed to I agree on what is the law, or what ran be done by the congress along tho f lines proposed by Mr. Tillman. The latter, who assents to the title of a "cornfield lawyer," got into the dis cussion in an effort to elucidate, tho conflicting opinions. Everybody was fast getting beyond his depth when Senator Lodge, the scholar of the senate, discovered faulty construction in the language of tho Tillman resolution. . This resolution di rected the Judiciary committee to re port, by bill or otherwise, what legis lation is necessary to enable the states In the exercise of' therr police power to control Interstate commerce in In toxicating liquors, "so as to aid the cause of temperance and to prevent the Illicit ' dealing by the government in the same." Mr. 'Lodge called attention to the fact that the words "the same" would make It appear that the government had been engaged in an Illicit dealing In the cause of temperance. Mr. Till man, I could not see that his resolution was Improperly drawn, but when thejre was a heavy laugh, following another reading of the words, he gave In and Joined In the merriment. The Interruption seemed to straight en out tho tangle, for a little later Mr. Tlllmanwithdrew his resolution, and, in lieu introduced a bilKfor a modification of the so-called original package law.

Tribute to the Great Sovereign Who Has Passed Away. The venerable monarch who has just pased away, granilsrm of Berna dotte and son of Josephine Beauhar nais, might truly be described as "ev ery inch a King." There were more conspicuous sovereigns in Europe dur ing his long reign, but there were few, if an who more justly appre ciated the functions of a modern con stitutional monarch or who more dil igently am1 successfully strove to jus tify the r , fence of kingship by ser vice to the people. For thirty-five years Oscar II labored as earnestly as "any democratic chief of stale for the welfare of his liingdom. Its reign was a period of progress and prosper ity and of general advancement of his subjects' welfare. Its one untoward event from his point of view was the secession of Norway, which he ttrove to avert by uh'ms all his influ ence for the just conciliation of the Norwegians, and against which, when at last it inevitably came, he protest ed vainly but with a dignity not often rivaled. in royal utterances. He was a generous patron of literature, -sdence, and art, and was himself a man of let ters historian, essayist, and poet of no mean rank. Sweden is the better for his having reigned and the world is poorer for his death. He lias left the kingdom strong and prosperous, to be reigned over by his son, a worthy successor, already famil iar wmi uie uuues ui Kingcrait. xnji will be no disturbance of Swedish, I fairs, at home or abroad, because!, the change of monarchs, but of grateful recollections of the King is dead and loyally confident am, pation for the King who lives York Tribune.
