that her bhusband has it, and when they

A Case to Contest the Coostitutionality
Bostox, Sep. 6.—A suit to test the con
stitutionality of the Australian Ballotlaw
was heard yesterday by the full bench of
the Supreme Court.
Rev. A. A. Miner, the petitioner, was
nominated in May to the office of Senator
in the Seventh Suffolk district, by a con
vention of the Prohibition party, which
did not poll 3 per cent. of the vote for
Governor at the last election. The ~ cer
tificate of his nomination, filed with the
Secretary of the Commonwealth, did not
show that in the caucusses which chose the
delegates composing the convention 25
voters participated and voted. On account
of this omission the Secretary refused to
t Dr. Miner's name upon the official
Ellot. Thereupon Dr. Miner requested
the Ballot Law Commissioners to consider
the case. The Commission determined,
for the same reason, that Dr. Miner's
name could not be placed upon the ballot.
The court took the case under consider

Introduction of the Distingnished Celes

Exclusion Act,
WasmiNaros, Sep. 5 —Yesterday the
conduct of the case of China in the ne
getiations over the Exclusion law was
officially taken in charge by Yang Yu,
the new Chinese Minister, whose rank 1
his own country is so high that it is only
four degrees below that of the Emperor of
the celestial kingdom himself. The Min
ister presented his credentials to the Presi
dent and was formally recognized by the
latter as the accredited diplomatic repre
sentagive of China to the United States.
Yaug Yu with four attaches of his lega
tion met Secretary Gresham at the Siate
Department by appointment a few min
utes before 3 o'clock and the party witu
the addition of assistant Secretary Adee
were driven to the White House and usu
ered into the blue room. 7The Miuister
and his attaches were attired in silk robes, 1
the blouses of black and the skirts ofblue.
Each wore a hat of red and black adorned |
with plumes of horse-hair. Strungaround
the wist of the Minister were insignia ol
the Order of the Eight Banuers, while the
other diplomatists wore minor decorations
similarly appended,
When Secretary Gresham had made
the presentations the Minister mude a
brief speech.
“Mr. President,” be said, ‘I have the

Convention of Christinn Prohibitionists
to Consider the Relation of the
Church to Their Canse,
New York, Sep. 6.—The following was
jssued yesterday: Recognizing in the legal
ized liquor traflic a foe to the general, moral,
physical and financial well-being of the
human race, a serious menace to the pros
perity of the nation and undoubtedly the
great 4mpediment to the advancement and
coming of Christ's Kingdom on earth ;
convinced that the denominational church
of to-day is not discharging its full duty
toward this evil; but on the contrary is.
through the guilty silence of its pulpits,
and the unrebuked political subserviency
of the vast majority of its male members
to this evil, practically in complicify with
it; and, feeling assured that it is against
the laws of ethics and common sense 0
hope for redress from this legalized
“scourge of all time” until the organic
church, the recognized human source of
all earthly purity, shall either ‘‘come to the
help of the Lord against the mighty” in
this couflict, or cease to he recognized as
the true church; We the undersigned, res
pectfully call upop the Christian prohibi
tionists who have—llst, a definite idea of
what the attitude of the church should be
towards this diabolical “traffic in human
blood; 24, a firm conviction that the
church is not living up to that idea; and
3d, either a remedy to suggest for this
attitude of the church, or a determination
to find one—to meet i» the City of New
York on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sep. 19
and 20, 1803, to discuss this subject, and
to organize for definite wesk as Divioe

Origin of Recent Boundary Troubles—
How Changes in the Course of a River
Are Decided by International Law-—A
Commission Required.
W asuixGrox, Sep. 7.—The trouble over |
the boundary line between Mexico and
the United States, which has caused both
countries involved to send troops to the
Havaua Ranch and has brought about the
arrest of Mexican customs officials, will
probably result in the appointment of a
commission to determine all such disputes
that have arisen within recent years,
principally through changes in the chan
nel of the Rio Grande. This commission |
is already provideld for in a treaty between
the United States and Mexico agreed to
nine years ago, but its provisions have re
mained in statu quo. The State Depart
ment and the War Department are now en
deavoring to determine the ownership of
the sheep seized, and whether the land on
which thoy were grazing is in Mexico or
in this country, From the meagre re
ports of the present dispute received at the
War Department, it appears that yearsago
a “‘cut-off” eaused by the sudden changing
in the chaunel of the Rio Grande, left cer
tain Texas land on the Mexican side of the
river, butrecently the river changed back
to its old channel, During all this time
the owner of the land, an American citi
zen, continued to allow his sheep to graze
on it. The owner of the adjacent land in
Mexico, whose ranch is now separated from
the disputed piece by the channel of the
Rio Grande, claimed that the ‘‘ent-off”
was Mexican soil and reverted to him.
Complaint made to the Mexican authori
ties resulted in the seizure of the sheep by
Mexican custom houss officials on the
ground that the flock was unlawfully
grazing on Mexican soil, and the arrest of
the Mexican officers by United States
troops followed.
According to international law, alluvial
matters; gradually washed from one side
of a @seam forming an international
boundary, and deposited on the opposite
side 80 as to increase the size of the land
there, perhaps to the amount of several
hundred feet into the river, becomes the
property of the country to whose bank it
adheres and the country on the other side
of the stream suffers a consequent loss. In
such an instance the channel of the stream
becomes the houndary between the two
conntries. But if the beuandary stream
change suddenly by freshet or otherwise so
as to leave a large ‘‘cut-off” on the banks
of the new-formed channel opposite to its
original position, the old channel remains
the boundary.
The question to be settled is whether the
contested land is the result of a ‘“‘cut-off”
or merely of the gradual deposit of alluvial
matter from one side of the stream to the
other, and it is believed that the consider
ation which the President and Secretary
Giresham are giving to the question will
result in the appointment of the comumis
sion provided by the treaty.

A Significant Letter From the Convieted
Doctor te His Wife lanti
mating Suiclde,
DexvEß, Sep. 6. Attorney Macon, rep
resenting the widow of T. Thacher Giraves,
the suicide, has asked the County Commis
sioners so ignore the dying request of Dr.
Graves that the county pay his funeral
expenses and Mrs. Graves' traveling ex
penses east. The idea is repulsive to the
widow, who says that her brothers will
pay all expenses,
The body is now being embalmed and
the veins and arteries are full of poisonous
fluid. Anautopsy therefore now is impos.
sible and it never can be known with
what drug Giraves ended his life. Notable
passages in Dr. Giraves' letter to his wife,
first published yesterday, are as follows:
“You will soon find hosts of frieuds
who will advise you when lam goune, |
want to begin preparing for that course
which 1 have fully determined omn, if
Stevens gets the money from the County
Commissioners. It is no use, Kitty, for
me to use up every cent we have fighting
him. I must leave something for you and
mother, Kitty dear. 1 do hope you will
get all of the Barnaby legacy and make a
good thing onthe book. Tou will, if you
will rush it through while the public are
ready to buy it. Don't let any one pre
vent you for it will make you independ
ent for life.”
The above is the first direct intimation
that the doctor contemplated suicide,
““My dear, precious, I have not the
slightest fear or objectionto passing away.
All will be well, 1 trust, and 1 do it wil
lingly and cheerfuily, satisfied in my own
mind it is the best course. You publish
the book as soon us possible and work it
for your advantage. 7 !
“Ask Judge Macon to please guard my
name as much as possible and reply
sharply to any newspaper articles that may
assert, and they will, that I am afraid to
meet a new trial, But this enough for to

Bloomfield Drum, took place here yester

from the investigation made upon Drum’s

be held for murder. White and Drum got
into a fight over a game of pool, but
came to a settlement., The men, with two
others, started on a drive and when a short
distance away Drum renewed the argu

ordered White out to settle affairs. White
refused, and was then dragged out, thrown
down, kicked about the face and body
and otherwise pounded, White finally drew
a knife and gave Drum some doep, long

Steadily Nearing a Vote in
the Senate.
Silver Men Vainly Fighting for Delay -All
Other Legisiation Must Give Way to the
Repeal Bill-House Rules Adopted at
Last and Business Beguan,
Wasmixaron, Sep. 7.--The indications
in the Senate yesterday did not point to
speedy action on the House bill to repeal
the purchasing clause of the Sherman act,
The first two hours were occupied by Mr.
Morgan (Dem. Ala.,) in advoeacy of the
resolution which he had offered on Tues
day to provide for a joint select committee
on finauce and which, he avowed, was in
tended to supercede the Finance Committees
of both the Senate and the House, There
were ten minutes to sparve, after he took
his seat, before the repeal bill would come
up as the “unfinished business” and that
mterval was occupled in a somewhat
aerimonious colloguy between Senators and
in a yeu and nay voie on a motion to take
up the repeal bill. The bill was taken up
by a vote of 87 to 21, and Mr. Morgan's
resolution went to the ealendar, from which
it can ouly be taken ona modion, and by
a majority vote. The remaninder of the
day was consumed by Mr. Stewart (Rep,
Nev.,) in a continuation of the specch on
which he had spent tour hours of the pre
vious day's session.
House Rules Adopted,
Wasuisaron, Sep. 7. The House yos
terday adopted the ecode of rules which
will govern it during the Fifty-third Con
gress subject to the decision of the Com
mittee on Rules, which under the rules has
an almost absolute power to direct the busi
ness of the body. T'he rules vary but lit
tle from those that controlled the Fifty
second Congress. When flest reported they
contained one radical change and re-enacted
the clause which permits 100 members to
constitute s quorum in Commitiee of the
Whole. This clause was borrowed from
the rules of the Fifty-first Congress and
although every member of the Committee
on Hules was in favor of it, the pressure
brought against it on the Democratic side
proved too powerful and the commitiee
graceful.y ylelding, surrendered their point,
and the clause was stricken out,
After the adoption of the rules by the
House Speaker Crisp announced that it
would be in order tor members to send
bills and resolutions to the Speaker's desk
for printing and reference and pecitions to
the |ox tor reference only. lmmediately
every page on the floor was converted into
w messenger and loaded with bills, Many
members did not wait the services of a
puge, but themselv.s bore the precious
loand to the desk and delivered them. The
clerks were almost overwhelmed by the
mass, there being several huodred bills
presented, The mere work of numbering
them and sortiog for reference will ocenpy
the file clerk and his assistants for a day
or two. Most of the bills of a general
character have already been mentioned,
The House adjourned until Savurday.
Pushing Repeal Cautiously,
WasHINGTON, Sep. 7.--Secretary Car
lisle had quite a conference with some of
the leaders of the House after which he
went to the Senate and had a long talk
with Chairman Voorhees of the Finance
Committee, It was after Mr. Carlisle had
conferred with a number of BSenators
thut the conclusion wus reached that it
would be well not to push the resolution
providing for the change of the hour of
meeting to 11 o'clock, for the reason that
such action might be construed as a desire
on the part of those friendly to the repeal
bill, to press it too hard,
It hus been said that it was decided to
bring the repeal bill to a vote on the 15th
of the mouth, but Mr. Voorhees denies
that thers has been any discussion on that
proposition or that any day has been sug
geated. It Is known, however, that just
as soon as the leaders on the administra
tion side believe that legitimate debate has
been exhausted and that discussion has
degenerated into a species of oratorical fili
bustering, they will endeavor to force a
vole by passing & resolution providing for
gontinuous sessions of the Senate day
and night until a vote is reached.
The silver men, however, meet this pro
gramme with one of their own which even
thus early in the proceediugs brings to the
front the question of endurance. It is
simply demanding a call from the Senate
and the attendance of a quorum, whenever,
during the debate on the part of the silver
men it becomes apparent there is npo
quorum present in the chamber.
The action of the various committees, or
eather their pou-action, indicates that
thers is to be no general legisiation wntil
repeal has been acted upon. KEvery com
mittes has befors it important bills bearing
upon every conceivable subject and yet,
save a few bills for private relief, not a
report has been made 10 the Senate. This
is understood to be in accordance with the
programme that nothing shall be per
mitted to get in the way of the mearure the
senate is now debating.
