NOT MUCH DOING .UNTJjL AFTER
ADJOURNMENT FOR A TIME
Appointment of Lurton to Be Asee
elate Justice Occupying Atten
tion of the Senate.
Washington. With probably fewer
than a- quorum "ofmembers of either
house in the city, all legislation In
congress 'during the next two days
will be by common consent. The
house, will undertake nothing more
than the passage of some bills of
minor importance and the comple
tion of its work on the District of
Columbia appropriation bill, which al
ready has been under consideration
for two or three days.
It has been hoped that the army,
supply bill might be taken up and dis
posed of before adjournment, but that
program has been abandoned in the
face of the departure of so many
members. It is expected that very
little time will be necessary for the
disposal of the District bill, and with
it out of the way the house, in the
main, will simply "tread water" until
the time for adjournment for the holi
days. The senate will undertake very lit
tle except the confirmation of Hon.
Horace H. Lurton to be associate
Justice of the supreme court of the
United States. The nomination will
be reported favorably to the senate
on Monday and an effort will be made
to have it acted upon. The present
Indications are that there will be no
objection to such a course and that
Mr. Lurton's confirmation will take
place before the beginning of the holi
days, thus enabling him to take his
seat on the supreme bench upon the
reconvening of that body" after the
It Is not expected that a quorum
will be present either Monday or
Tuesday, and if such should prove to
be the case a call for an aye and no
vote would have the effect of postpon
ing action until January. No one
seems willing to accept this responsi
bility, and Senator Bacon of the judi
ciary committee, who has charge of
the nomination, is hopeful that the
expediency of such a call will not be
Undoubtedly there are a number of
senators who consider Mr. Lurton's
age to be against him, but their ob
jection does not go to the extent of
Some investigation is being made of
Judge Lurton's decisions as a circuit
judge, with a view to determining the
foundation of the charge that they are
in the interest of corporations, and a
statement covering this phase of the
question probably will be presented
to the senate when the subject is tak
en up for consideration.
In the main, the disposition is to al
low the president to have his way In
the selection of a successor to Justice
Peckham, but many of the senators
are disposed to make a record regard
ing Mr. Lurton's shortcomings, if he
If it were a question of success or
defeat, Mr. Lurton would have many
champions and there is no doubt that
he would be confirmed on a vote. The
only question involved at this time is
the advisability of delay. He would
be confirmed soon after the holidays,
even though the question should be
deferred so long.
Both houses will adjourn on Tues
day for two weeks, the day for the re
convening being fixed for Tuesday,

Is "Prayer Geographical?
Not long ago, in an important coun
ty in Ohio, the women and others
prayed that it would go "dry" and it
did. A few days later, the people in
Nassau and Suffolk counties, Long Is
land, prayed that these counties would
become desiccated and a count of
the votes showed that there was noth
ing doing. In both cases only those
poople prayed who were accustomed
to that form of weapon. Accordingly
there is a strong suggestion that
prayer, like the tariff, is a local issue.
