The Tariff Kill's Legality.
WASHINGTON , Oct. 24. Secretary
Windom said that he knew nothing
officially about the protests against the
legality of the McKinley tariff bill. 'I
do not " he said " the
, , "regardit as pro
vince of an executive officer to ques
tion the constitutionality of acts of con
gress. It is for him to enforce the law
as ho finds it and not to determine ques
tions affecting its legality. lam there
fore executing the McKinley act as I
find it , and shall continue to do so un
less a competent legal tribunal , such
as the supreme court , decides the
law unconstitutional. It is-not for mete
to question the validity of any of the
signatures to the bill as enrolled ,
neither is it for me to determine
whether the bill signed by the presi
dent did or did not in fact pass the
lower house , much less is it for me to
determine whether the omission of the
tobacco or drawback section or any
other provision of the bill invalidates
the law as a whole. As I understand
it , the act of October 1 , 1890 , is the
law of the land. My duty , therefore ,
is plain , and I shall execute its provi
sions to the best of my ability. Its
constitutionality is a question for the
courts , and until they decide against it
I shall be governed by it as it stands. "
Attorney General Miller positively
declined to discuss the question , say
ing it would be manifestly improper
to do so unless it came to him in an
Commissioner of Internal Revenue
Mason said : "It is not for me to say
whether or not the omission of the to
bacco provision vitiates the tariff.
Being merely an executive officer of
the government , I must enforce it as I
find it. Anyhow , the tobacco schedule
does not take effect until January 1 ,
so if congress desires to refund 2 cents
a pound on all the tobacco on hand
when the law takes effect it has ample
time to legislate to that end. "
No alarm whatever , is felt here
among the friends of the McKinley bill
as to the legality of its enactment.
The precedents of unnumbered years ,
an old and experienced employe of the
house said today , leaves no doubt that
an error , whether of omission or com
mission in the enrollment of a bill
passed by congress , does not vitiate
any part of the measure except that ,
part to which the error relates.
Captain McGregor , chief of the cus
toms division , recalls a somewhat sim
ilar case under the wool act of 1867.
The tariff act bore date of March 2.
but congress extended the session of
the 2d over to the 4th , so , as a matter
of fact , the bill was not signed till
about noon March 4. The question
arose as to whether the cargo that ar
rived on the od should pay duty at the
old rates as the bill was actually not
signed till after its arrival. The case
was carried into court , which consented
to go behind the public record /and
take the testimony of President John
son himself as to when the act was
signed. A similar question will of
course come up in connection with the
McKinley bill. The copy of the act
which went to the president and was
signed by him certainly bore the sig
natures of the presiding officers of the
two houses of congress , certifying to
its correctness. It must now be settled
whether it be lawful to go behind this
certification and ascertain what Was
really the bill passed by the two houses.
American Institute of Architects.
WASHINGTON , Oct. 24. The annual
convention of the American Institute
of Architects began , yesterday. The
attendance is very encouraging , repre
senting all parts of the union. Many
interesting and valuable reports will be
presented and papers read before the
convention during the three days' ses
sion. But one session was held today ,
chiefly devoted to preliminary matters.
R. M. Hunt , president of the institute ,
was unable to be present on account of
illness and his report was read by one
of the directors. In it , referring to
the government building work as con
ducted by the architects of the treas
ury , he said that while the work is
generally well done , we must hold it
preposterous to assume that any one
person can do justice to the present re
quirements of the office. The present
arrangements are by no means eco
nomical and the 'imperfections on it
are naturally attributed to polit'cal
jobbery or indifference towards the
natter of art. Were a national build
ing put in charge of well selected men
and the power of the supervising arch
itect restricted to general supervision
of them , it Ls but reasonable to assume
that the government would be better
and more economically served.
A Frantic Mother.
MAUC3 CHUNK. Pa. , Oct. 24. Web
ster B. Campbell who was convicted in
court last week of involuntary man
slaughter for the killing of Gertie His-
key was senterced yesterday by Judge
Dreher to imprisonment fc ? six months
in the county juil and to pay a fine of
$20. Then followed one of the most
extraordinary and dramatic scenes ever
witnessed in the courts of Carbon coun
ty. The aged mother of the dead girl
gew fairly wild in her dissatisfaction
with the sentence and her attorneys
were powerless to pacify her. The
unfortunate woman gave vent to her
pent up ff/elings and lost entire control
of herself. She sprang to her feet and
with ar/ns raised high in a shrill voice
called out : "God , Almighty , come
down and do justice , I am not satisfied
to see my dear daughter slaughtered
in cold blood and him ( pointing her
finger at the prisoner ( have only six
months in jail. No , no , God , Al
mighty , come into this court house and
do the fair thing. Oh ! come down , oh !
do justice to this case. "
Everytime an attempt was made to
pacify her she would break out afresh
and exclaim : "Leave go ; God has sent
me here to tell tell truth. " She scored
the judge , attorneys for the defen&o
and everyone whom in her frenzy she
thought responsible for the easy man
ner in which the slayer of her daugh
ter got olf. She finally sank to the
lloor entirely exhausted and faintecl
away. A cot was brought in and the
distracted mother placed upon it and
carried out of the court.
Political At HCSKincMts.
WASHINGTON , Oct. 24. In regard to
the alleged activity of political asso
ciations , especially among employes
in Washington , Civil Service Commis-
"sioner lloosvelt said : "There is not
the slightest necessity for any. clerk to
pay anything now unless he or she
wishes to. We are sure no cabinet
officer would permit a man to be mo

Tlio Corn Crop.
CHICAGO , 111. , Oct. 23.The Farm
ers' Review says that a careful exami
nation of the estimates furnished by
correspondents reveals the fact that the
corn crop is turning out somewhat bet
ter than expected. The crop in Mich
igan and Wisconsin is larger than last
year ; in Minnesota and Dakota almost
as large. Other states , especially Kan
sas and Nebraska , show a considerable
shortage. In several counties in Kan
sas and Nebraska corn is nearly a total
failure. The Review gives estimates
on the production of Illinois , Indiana ,
Ohio , Kentucky , Missouri , Kansas.
Wisconsin , Michigan , Iowa , Nebraska ,
Minnesota and the Dakotas , and says ,
after deducting from the gross product
a large percentage of unmerchantable
corn , the estimate of the total market
able in the states named is 825,935,253
bushels. The condition of the crop in
the remaining states not covered by
the report is estimated at about 85 per
cent of an average.
Bridal Tour in a Balloon.
BIKMINGHAM , Ala. , Oct. 25. At the
state fair yesterday Thomas J. Mins

Ala. , were married in front of the

people. The young couple then step
ped into the car of a balloon and with
Aeronaut Baldwin sailed off on their
bridal tour. The balloon when it was
last seen this afternoon was heading
for the mountainous region of Shelby
county. The young couple secured a
purse of $250 and a large number of
The balloon with the bridal couple
finally landed on top of a inoutain ,

Justice Miller's Successor.
WASHINGTON. Oct 22. It is now
generally understood that no election
of a successor to the late Justice Miller
will be made until after the meeting of
Private Secretary Halford remarked
that the appointment of a justice of
the court when congress was not in
session was a thing almost unheard of ,
and especially in case of a vacancy oc
curring so near the date of the meet
ing of congress as is this one.
Published reports from Chicago state
that reports were in circulation there
that Judge Gresham had received a
telegram from Washington asking if
he would accept the position. It can
be safely asserted that the report is
not true. The president is in no hurry
about making a selection for the place.
It is now well understood that both
Miller of Indiana and Noble are as
nearly candidates for the place as is
possible under the delicate relations
they hold to the president. Noble is
quoted as having said the position is
the highest ambition of his life , and
that he could not do otherwise than ac
cept it if offered. Miller is silent when
questioned on the subject. The gen
eral feeling- here is that Gresham is
the best of all the men yet mentioned
for the place , but it is doubtful if Harrison
risen will so far forget their personal
and political differences as to appoint
him under any circumstances.
Ex-Gambler Tarred and Feathered.
CHICAGO , Oct. 23. A curious as
sault was made to-night upon an ex-
gambler named J. B. Quinn. Two
men held him up in a dark spot on
Lake street , on the edge of Union
park , compelled him to strip to the
waist , poured a bucked of liquid tar
over the upper portion of his body and
then added some feathers by way of
adornment. The assailants then !
knocked him down and kicked him re
peatedly , rendering him unconscious.
He was found by some people stroljing
through the park and the police were
notified , but with no trace of the as
sailants. Quinn has been posing as a
"reformed gambler. " writing a book
on gamblers' methods , and is supposed
to have incurred the enmity of the
fraternity , although prominent sport
ing men &cout the idea that any such
motive provoked the attack.

JL MAZIER OF IMPORTANCE NO IOWA

Court to Determine the Boundary

Wreck on tlio Santa Fo Jjinc None
Killed , but Quito a Number In
jured Indian Schools Quarantine
Against Criminals Silver Pur-
Ncbranka-Iowit Boundary lilnc.
WASHINGTON , Oct. 25. Attorney-
General Leeso has filed a bill in the
supreme court to determine the bound
ary line between the states of Nebraska
and Iowa. The question disputable
was occasioned , the bill recites , by the
shifting of the bed and channel of the
Missouri river. The document on file
with the clerk of the supreme court
contains nine pages of judiciary print
and is occupied in the beginning by a
description of the well known boundary
line recognized by congress when Iowa
in 1846 was admitted to the union of
states and which is found in the law of
the United States , revised statutes , con
taining the Iowa admission bill. Then
follows a recitation of the history of
the work in the United States land
office to mark the boundary lines , done
in 1851. and which is a matter of
record in the office of the state's attor
ney general and the surveyor. The
boundary line recognized by congress
when Nebraska was admitted to btate-
hood in 1867 is then recited. There is
given a statement of the changes of
the course of the current , bed and
channel of the Missouri river which
have occurred sinte 1851 , when
they began. A very minute de
scription of the changes of the river
along and in sections 16 , 17 , 21 , 22 ,
23 and 28 in Iowa is made , and it is
alleged that they have , under the
boundary lines now recognized by the
United States , given the state of Ne
braska jurisdiction over a part of
them , and the supreme court is asked
to grant the usual writ of subpoena
commanding the state of Iowa to ap
pear before this court and answer the
premises and stand to' perform and
abide such order and decree as to this
court as shall be meet and equitable.
There is full and familiar reference
made to the well known questions of
jurisdiction and disputes which have
for years arisen between the two states
on the points named and the court is
reminded that the lands in dispute
"are adjacent to the city of Omaha
and various large industries are being
established and built thereon , over
which each state claims jurisdiction. "
The object of the proceedings , the
attorney general states through the
bill , which was filed by his representa
tives , J. M. Woolworth and C. J.
Green , counsel , is to forever settle the
right of jurisdiction by determining
the present boundary lines. There
will not likely be further proceedings
under some months , as no answer has
yet been filed by the attorney general
