MR. QUAY'S TITLE
Right of the Pennsylvania Ex Senator to a Seat Through Appointment Being Debated Before the Senate Committee on Privileges and Elections. Formidable Array of Counsel on Both Sides—Question Purely Legal. WASHINGTON. Dec. 18.—The investi gation of the right of former Senator Quay to a seat in the senate by appoint ment of the governor of Pennsylvania, was begun by the senate committee on privileges and elections. The hearing was purely a legal argument on the right of the governor to make the ap pointment in the circumstances which arose in the case of Mr. Qnay—a ques tion which repeatedly has been threshed over by the senate in other cases. Hon. John H. Elkin, attorney general of Pennsylvania, stated that he would ad dress the committee on behalf of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Ex Senator Edmunds announced that he would appear for those who remon strated against the seating of Mr. Quay, and that he had as coadjutors Hampton L. Carson and George Wharton Keeper. W. J. Brennen. an attorney of Pitts burg, announced his appearance for the Democratic members of the Pennsyl vania legislature, and that he had asso ciated with him James A. Stranahan. In the course of his opening argu ment. Mr. Elkin contended that a sov ereign state was at all times entitled tc full representation in the senate, ac cording to the spirit and letter of the constitution. The intention of the framers of the constitution was to keep the representa tion of each state complete, and he maintained that the governor having authority to appoint a senator to fill a vacancy caused by death, resignation, disqualification or expulsion, had also full power to appoint in the event the legislature failed of its duty to e!ect. He held that the failure of the legisla ture to perform its duty, ought not and could not operate to the state's disad vantage in the senate. Attorney General Elkin was followed by H.impton L. Carson. As lie was about to begin his argument, Senator Penrose of Pennsylvania interrupted tc inquire: "Do you not appear here as the paid litornev of John Wanamaker' Sir. Carson replied that he did not appear in the pay of Mr. Wanamaker or in that of anybody else. Former Senator Edmunds then seized the opportunity to disclaim for himself any connection with Mr. Wanamaker ill the case. Mr. Carson presented an elaborate legal and constitutional argument against the seating of Air. Quay. Will Not Affect Atl*n. XKW Dtc. —A special dis patch to Tno Herald from Washington says: Republican leaders in the senate ••y there will be no difficulty about the seating of Senator Allen. They say the Nebraska legislature discharged it. duty in electing Mr. Hayward, and the fact that he did not qualify before he died does not affect the situation. JUDGE COLLINS OUT. Will Not Malt® A Fight for the Mlnn* loU Oahemalorial Nomination. ST. PALL. Dec. I1?.—Judge Loren W. Collins will not be an active candidate for governor. The judge authorized the press to state that he had decided not to try for the nomination. He first announced this decision at the meeting of the committee of five to which the question was referred. He will accept the nomination if it come* to him, but he will not work for it.
