5'enator Chandler probably will make
an effort Monday to get the senate to
agree upon a day for taking a vole on
thti resolution concerning the seating
"f Senator Quay. The present Indica
tions are that for the present , he will
tail to scpuro unanimous consent and In
iny event the discussion of the reso
lution will proceed. Among the t'ona-
tors who are expected to engage In the
( Mscusslon are Messrs. Burrows ,
CJuarles and Platt of Connecticut , all of
whom oppose the seating of Mr. Quay
Mr. Burrows will speak today.
The Indian appropriation bill , will
continue to receive attention until dis
posed of , but it Is not expected to oc
casion a great deal more of debate.
Senator Carter hopes to proceed with
the consideration of the Alaskan code
bill early In the week with the hope of
securing action at an early date. There
i are still some differences pertaining to
mining rights to be adjusted In this
measure and more or less discussion
necessarily will precede their deter
mination. The appropriation bill for
the District of Columbia probably will
be considered during the week.
On Wednesday Senator Lodge will
able the senate to vote upon the Philip-
| . ! no temporary measure , but he does
not expect to accomplish more than to
got a day fixed for the vote. There Is
apparently no disposition to debate this
Mil to any great extent , but an oh-
Action Is likely to be entered to a vote
at this time.
The republican senators are disposed
to crowd on all possible sail with the'
view of securing early adjournment , '
and to this end will seek to get early !
action on appropriation bills and on
other necessary legislation. The domo-i
crats apparently are disposed to fall
In "with this Idea , and the.v , too , ox-
| -ress a desire to get away early In the
hummer.
The committee on elections will con
clude Its consldf-ratlon of the case of
Senator Clark of Montana , during the
veek. Senator Chandler , chairman ot
the committee' , expresses the opinion
that only one sitting of tljc committee
' . ' 111 be necessary to determine .the attl-
t.ide of the committee.
A portion of the session of the sen-
; to of Tuesday afternoon will be de
voted to eulogies upon the the late
Representative Bland of Missouri.
The features of the week in the house
will be the closing fight on the Porto
IJicnn tariff bill. The republican man
agers will carry out the program agreed
upon In caucus on Wednesday , when a
H-eclal rule will be adopted which will

site amendments to a vote after several
l'o\u-s of debate.
Both sides arc laboring earnestly to

N | inratu Opinion
FRANKFORT , Ky. , 7. The court of
appeals today handed down a decision
In the governorship case In favor of
the democrats. The opinion Is by six
of the judges , four democrats ami two
Republicans.
Judge Durelle was the only judge
dissenting. The other two republican
Judges , Burnam and Guffy , gave a sep
arate opinion from the democratic
judges , but which agreed with the
democratic members In its conclusion.
Judge Hobhon wrote tlie opinion of
the court. The concurrence of Judges
Bunuun and Guffy with the four dem
ocratic judges was a surprise gener
ally , but to the republicans especially.
The opinion holds that the action
of the legislature in seating Governor
Bcckham was final and that the courts
have no power to review It ; that Gov-
etnor Taylor exceeded his authority In
adjourning the legislature to London
and that the Journals of the two
houses of the legislature , being reg
ular , cannot bo Impeached. Thirty
days must elapse before tin ; mandate
of the court of appeals , In accordance
with today's decision , Is Issued. Meaa-
whlle no radical change In the rela
tive positions of the two state govern
ments Is expected.
Former Governor Bradley , chief
counsel for Governor Taylor , tonlgnt
authorized the statement that an ap
peal on behalf of Governor Taylor and
Lieutenant Governor Marshall will be
carried to the supreme court of the
United Stales. Bradley and Judge W. !
H. Yost , counsel for Hie republican
state officers , were In consultation with .
Governor Taylor for several hours !
this afternoon and the statement was
made at the close of the conference.
It Is said that Colonel W. C. P. Brock-
inridge and republican leaders from
different parts of the state will meet
Taylor in conference here tomorrow
morning. !
Judge Burnam and Guffy , republicans - |
cans , while concurring in the opinion i
tl'tit the courts have no jurisdiction , j
dissented from the reasoning. Judge |
Burnam's separate opinion says : i
"It Is hard to imagine a more fla- i
jrrant and partisan regard of the modes j
ol procedure than is made manifest i
by the facts alleged and rolled on j
by contestees and admitted by de- i
niurrcr and I am firmly convinced
from admitted facts that the legisla
ture In the heat of au r , engendered
by intense partisan excitement , has
done two faithful , conscientious and ,
able public servants an irreparable ,
injury by depriving them of the office
to which they were elected and a still '
greater wrong to the large majority |
of the electors who voted under difll- |
cult circumstances to elect these ser
vants , ' i
"But we are met at the threshold j
with the contention that the courts |
of the state under the constitution have j
no power to go behind the legislative |
journal and review the Judgment of i
the assembly in the proceedings over
which they are given by the constitu
tion exclusive jurisdiction and from
whoso determination of the question i
no appeal is provided. J have been led j
with sonio leluctance to the conclusion ,
and not without home misgivings as I
to its correctness , that there is now '
po.ver in the courts of the state to !
review the findings of the general assembly - i
sombly In a contested election for the
offices of governor and lieutenant gov-
> rnor as shown by Us only authenc-
inted records. Many question have
been raised and diseased liy counsel
for the appellants , but it will be un
necessary to consider mem In view
of the conclusion we have reached.on
this fundamental question. "

LONDON , April 7. Lord Roberts
reports that five companies of British
troops luivo been captured by the
Hoers near Uethany.
The following Is the text of Lord
Roberts' dispatch to the war office :
"OLOEMKONTEIN , Thursday , April

1-as occurred resulting , 1 f"nr , | n the
capture of a party of Infantry con-
fisting of three companion of the
Hoyal Irish Pusllcors and two compa
nies of the Ninth 'regiment of mounted
infantry near Rcddersburg , a little
eastward of Bethany railway station ,
within a few miles of this place. They
were surrounded by a stronger force
of the enemy with four or live guns.
"The detachment hold out from noon

then , apparently surrendered , for it is
reported that the firing ceased at that

LONDON , April 7. Not a word re
garding the disaster at Rcddersburg
lias conic through , except the dis
patch of Lord Roberts. Meanwhile the
British public is beginning to realize
the Immense difficulties to bo over
come even before Pretoria ic reached
and Is revising premature ideas with
icspect to the time at which the war
will be over. No one believes that
it will have ended by the beginning

The latest disaster more particularly
illustrates the heavy tasK involved in
holding the railroad. This body of :
some r > 00 British troops , without gnus ,
which disappeared so completely with
in thirty-five miles of the great British
army , had for its business to guard a
section of nearly ninety miles of rail
way between Bloemfontein and Sprlng-
lonteln. If It could thus be spirited
away , how is Lord uoberts to ensurq
his continually extending communica
tions ?
Ctlier pertinent questions arc being
asked as a result of these successive
uniortunato occurrences. The fore
most isWhy do not the British troops
entrench ? It is argued that if this
had been done even fiOO men might
have held out until reinforcements
arilvcd. It cannot be concealed that
the utmost alarm Is beginning to be
felt.

It Is said that the Boers who cap

he has not returned north , and hopes
arc expressed that he may still be cut

surrendered during General Clement's
northward march.
