WASHINGTON , Dec. I" , . [ Special Telegram
( o llio Hnn.--Congrcss ] , for the fiftieth time ,
convened lo-diiy. ItVUB so iiulut nn opening
that Home far-seeing statesmen Imvo said to
the Hir. : correspondent to-night that It Is nn
omen of u stormy tlmo bofoiu Iho heat of
Rummer forces n vacation. Hut there wore
In attendance all the adjuncts which usually
go to malto up nny great event ut the nutlomil
rapltol. There were the crowd , Iho excite
ment , the ( lowers , the fuss and hurry the
fresh young persons and the Irrepressible
cranks. The dny was flnu mid pleasant out
side and , notwithstanding thu cloud Inside ,
the atmosphere .In thu eapitol was good for
the capltol. The ctowd c.imo last. The same
old crowd that always attends a big day at
the eapitol ladlcn who come early and tale
the best seats ; men also , having nothing bet
ter to do than nit on the hard
benches of the galleries , and sight-seers
who came to see thu opening of congress.
The Semite Bide was the attraction at first be
cause , after all the funs Htlrred up , cverjono
thought there was going to bo a busy tiinu on
the lloor. Hut how disappointed everyone
was , because thu opening of thu senate was
dignified and stately as it should be. Hut
the crowds had a Jolly time in looking at thu
people and watching thu new senators on
the lloor.
Everyone wanted to know who occupied
the sent on the lust row of chairs on the elum-
ocratlu side which was almost hidden by
( lowers. At last It became known thut the
seat was to bo occupied by Daniel , of Vir
ginia , und then they began to count the floral
tributes scattered carelessly about It. Thuro
were horto shoes and baskets , bonuets mid
wreaths , all beautiful and sweet smelling
flowers , but thu floral tribute that took the
cake was u rather rickety looking ladder of
roses and carnations , supposed to represent
the ladder of fanio. On the top round weru
the words , "United States senate. "
"Why , " exclaimed an old lady In the
' "it Jiienb who
stranger's Bill lory , was
: limbcd the ladder , not Daniel. Seine one
aught to send him a lion's den. "
The only i cmark sdu got in answer was
from u stout old man who was sitting next to
her , "Ho has Just left the great American
bcnr pit across the way and by coming to
thu senate has got among the lions. " The
ttld lady looked at him as If she would be
obliged for a diagram of his Joko. A huge
panic of the choicest roses weru upon thu desk
) f Senator Paddock and ho was most cor-
ilnlly received by iivcryono. Onu of the
( land tributes that attracted the most atten
tion in the senate was a large harp on Kiddlu-
ucrgcr's desk. It was a gorgeous affair and
Svas tied with gay ribbons und a big card.
The senate presented a strange appearance
to an old timer in thu gallery because llicru
tvciu so many new faces there to-day. The
great sensation Iho democrats had tried to
scare up did not nmtcriali/o and hcncuthu
opening proceedings were very tamo. The
republican senators told the democrats that
F.iulkner , of West Virginia , could not bo
heated , and llku good little boys thu demo
crats ube.\ed. Faulkner was disai > ponted ! ,
because somu lady friend had sent him u
florfil chain with an invitation to take a seat.
He did take a seat but not onu in thu senate.
The only point of interest in the proceed
ings , outside thu usual run of the opening of
thucitato , was the swearing in ot Turpie of
Indiana. Ho was nervous , and when he was
asked to hold up his right hand , it trembled
to that hounild Imiclly do it.
Hut , even in the house the fun was supreme
and thu crank hud full sway. The house was
hi a sort of a chaotic state all morning. The
old memb'Ts took their old seats but the new
membijis flitted about and now ami then
into a vacant chair , only to rise again at thu
approach of someone with an apologetic remark -
mark , for occupying the wrongscat. . The
pages \\cro kept busy all morning bringing
In floral tributes for the members. The cow
boy congressman fiom Texas , Mai tin , sat in
_ a scat in the back row , looking like a fish out
if water. John linker , Morrison's successor ,
ccuplcd a seat near William Walter Pin Ips ,

Vvhcn under ids wing. Springer danced
about the lloor witli u red , red rose-bud ii ;

pad things in store for him , but Springer is
nlways dancing about the lloorwhelher ho bi

largo green harp which had been placed ot

General Clark , thu clerk , nipped thu housi
to order and the hum of voices cleared for t

"No I" shouted a strong volco from thover.\ \

All eyes \vcio turned in the direction of thi
voice and every one saw a lank man with ret
chin whiskers standing up in thu corner o :
the gallery. He raised his arms and began
"PrulsoGod from whom all blessings How '
Here lie stopped , Hoping to hear sonm re

Then bis voice was drowned by the uproa
of hand-chipping and laughter. Mr. Clarke' :

it to the very end und finished with a loui

could be. The man had selected a good place
for no onu could get nt him , a

was not very fortunate In securing seals ns
Iholr names were not early called. Mr. Dor-

delegation also fared indifferently.
WASHINGTON , Dec. 5. The senate cham
ber were n fresh nnd tasteful op-
pcaranco this morning. The Doors
und galleries were newly carpeted
and thu desks gllstcneil in their coat of
varnish , the odor of which mingled faintly
with that of boqucts and gorgeous floral de
vices which entwined the picture. The thief
topic of convctsation with the majority was
the prospect of n conflict over thu
admission of certain democratic senators-
elect , and pat liy because it was known that
thu republicans , In default of nny
caucus plan of ai'tlon , bad concluded to fol
low the lead of their members of the commit
tee on privileges and elections. There had
been an informal consultation , It was under
stood , und hud leached the conclusion to
maku no opposition to thu admission of Turpie ,
of Indiana , but to object to Faulkner , of
West Virginia , on the ground that there weru
conflicting credentials from that state. Thu
general opinion was that there ) would bo no
dead-lock and that the usual coursu of open
ing proceedings would not bu broken.
Mrs. Cleveland , clad In a costume of dark
green and accompanied by Mrs. Gilder , Mrs.
Mlngsford and several others , occupied the
seats reserved for the family of the presi
dent in one of the privuto galleries. The di
plomatic gallery was filled by members of
the various legations , the front scat being oc-
cuplcd by thu Chinese minister , his secretary
und his associates.
Thu proceedings of the day wcro opened
with prayer by Chaplain Kcv. .1. C ! . Hutler.
President of the Senate Ingalls then took thu
chair nnd called the senate to order. Ho said
ho would now place before the senate the
certificates of election , cei tilicatesof appoint
ment nnd other papeis received since the
The following papers were thereupon sub
mitted and read :
Certificate ot the governor of Florida
making the temporary appointment of J. J.
Finlay as senator from the -Hli of March ,
1SS7 , until the legislature should fill the va
cancy caused by the expiration of the term of
Senator Jones.
Certificate of the governor of Florida of
the election by the legislature of Samuel
Certificate of the governor of New Jersey
of the election of Kufus Hlodgett.
Certificate of the governor of West Vir
ginia of thu appointment by him of Daniel H.
Lucas to fill the vacam-y caused by the ex
piration of the term of Senator Camden.
Certificate of the governor of We-st Vir

the legislature ) In special session elected
Charles J. Faulkner as scimtor to 111 ! a va-
Credentials of William E. Chandler ns Sen
ator from Now Hampshire.
Protest eif Daniel H. Lucas against the
administration of the oath of office lo Charles
T. Faulkner. Thu grounds of the protest
are : I. Tlmt the executive of Hie state of
West Virginia 1ms not certified the election
of Faulkner under the seal of the state , as
required by act of congress. ! i. For the
reasons set out in the briuf of Daniel S.
Lucas , a copy of which accompanied the
protest. ! l. HeeaiiM ! Charles J. Faulkner
was , at the time and date of his alleged elec
tion , on tbo Mb of May , Ibb7. Judge of the
Thirteenth judicial district of West Virginia ,
nnd therefore Ineligible to thu oftlco of
senator ,
The protest was laid on the table and or
dered printed in tliu record.
The ceremony of administering the oaths of
oftlco to the newly elected senators was then
proceeded with , such senators being called in
parties of four , and in alphabetical order.
Mr. Hoar objected for the time ) being to ad
ministering the oath of olllcu to Mr. Faulk
ner. Ho understood that whatever question
arose concerning the title of that senator to a
seat uroso on the credentials themselves.
While thu proceedings of the legislature anil
history of the case wcro being discussed and
fully recited , he gave assurance ) that the
question should bo dealt with at the earliest
possible moment , so that the gentleman enti
tled to the seat would bo able to enter on the
discharge of his duties us u senator.
Mr ICunna said the course sugeestcd
seemed eminently uppropriuto und ho trusted
thataition would bo taken without the for
mality of a vote.
This suggestion was adopted.
At the suggestion of Mr. Vest the privi
leges of the lloor were given to Mr. Faulkner
pending the decision of the contest.
Mr. Harris presented a memorial for a
constitutional amendment prohibiting the
manufacture , sale , Importation , exportation
or transportation of alcoholic drinks in the
United States. Heferred.
i Mr. Hoar presented a memorial of F. Win
ter'and others In respect to the scat of
Senator Turpio of Indiana , and moved its
, reference to the cammittco on privileges anil
i elections. So ordered.
Ifesolutlons were adopted to Inform the :
house that a quorum of the senate hail
assembled , and for the appointment of n
oommlttco of two senators to join a like
committee of the house nnd inform the presi
dent that quorums pf both houses had as

any communication he might bo pleased tc

WASHINGTON , Dec. 5. Long before the
hour of noon thu galleries of the house were
crowded to the utmost rnp.icity with spccta
tors. Ladica were in the majority and thcii
gay costumes lent an air of animation to the
chamber. On the lloor the members congre
gated and exchanged greetings and congrat
ulations. At noon thu clerk of the house
s culled the body to order and was about tc
cull tliu roll when n crunk in thu gnllerj
started a Salvation army hymn , which he
sang lustily until ejected by the doorkeeper. .
The clerk then proceeded with the roll call

been administered by Mr. Kelly , of Pennsyl
vania , the speaker rapped the house to ordei
und made a spe-ech. Ho said In part :
I Gentlemen of the House of Heprescnta

for which you Imvo just chosen me 1 desire

governing your prouceding * . There scarcely
has ever been a tlmo in our history when tin
continued prosperity of our country do
pcndcd co largeJy upon legislation in congress
us now. Whatever is done must bo done
hero , nnd If nothing is done , the rcsponsl
bllity must rest hero. It must bo evident te
everyone who 1ms taken oven a partial survcj
of public affairs that the tlmo has now comi
when a revision of our revenue laws and a re
duction of taxation are absolutely necessary ii
. order to prevent a large and dangerous uc
cumulation of money in the treasury , TJn
financial condition of the government nnd the
private business of the people alike demand
prompt consideration of these hubjrels nnd
the speedy enactment of f omo substantial
measure of rehuf. Unfortunately wo are
menaced by dangers from opposite directions.
While the jiolley of non-action must Inevit
ably result , sooner or later , In serious Injury
to the country , wo cannot bo unmindful of
the fact that hasty und Jnconsidciatc legisla
tion on subjects more or less affecting largo
financial and Industrial interests might pro
duce , temporarily ut least , dlsturbatucs nnd
cinharrassnie'iits which a more prudent cause
would entirely avoid. No part of our people
are more Immediately or vitally interested in
the continuance of financial prosperity than
those who labor for wages. Upon them nnd
their families must always fall the most
illsastrous consequences of n monetary
risls , and they , too , are always the last to
iiillre the benefit of a return to prosperous
lines. Then wages are always first to fall
, vhen the crisis comes nnd the last to rise
ivlien It passes away. Our efforts should bu
o nffoul necessary relief to all without In-
,11 ry to the interests of any and therefore that
course of legislation should bu pursued
.vhich will guarantee thu laboring people of
.ho country ngainst the paraly/ing effects of
general and prolonged llnnnclal dcpressldn
mil at the same ttmu time not interfere with
.heir steady employment or deprive them of
inypart of the just reward they arc entitled
o. If this can bo done , and I believe It can ,
four deliberations mo conducted with the
wisdom or patriotism which the gravity of
thu situation demands , this congress will
have caitbo to congratulate Itsulf
on nn achievement which prom-
"ses peace and prosperity to the
oiintry for tunny years to come. These
remarks may bo considered somewhat out of
llio usual course and perhaps not entirely
pertinent to the occasion , but J bollevo you
will excuse them , gentlemen , because they
rulutp to subjects which , us we. usscmblo hereto
to day"arc uppermost in the minds of all
people. On a correct .solution of thu ques

When the applause which greeted this
speech had subsided thu speaker entered
upon the duty of administering the oaths of

accomplished , the speaker announced that

CiiHtoily of the Children Givuii to tin ;
DnxvnH , Cole , , Dec. . " . [ Special Telegram
to thu Hui : . ] Judge Hogers , of the superior
court , to-day made a final order in the cele
brated ex-Governor Ollpin divorce case in re
gard to the possession of the children. Fol
lowing is a summary of the opinion : Julia P.
Gilpin's bill , seeking alimony and payment
of attorney's fees , ordered dismissed , William
Gilpin to have t'ao custoJy of the children ,
but the the defendant , Julia P. Gilpin , to have
the right to visit the children for a spuco of
twelve hours per week on any day she may
select for that purpose and the children to
have the privilege of visiting their mother
one day each week at proper and reasonable
hours. Should cither or any of the children
bo taken ill und require care or nursing , Iho
mother shall have the privilege of performing
these duties. Neither of thochildren is to betaken
taken from under the Jurisdiction of the
court by their father without notice being
given to the defendant , their mother , or with
out formal order of the court. Lastly , the
plaintiff , William Gilpin , is to pay ull costs
of suit.
The order made does not signify that the
end of litigation in this cause celebro has yet
been reached. It is more than likely thattho
attorneys for the defense may take and carry
the case to a higher court. Mrs. Gilpin is u
daughter of the late General S. H. Pratt , of
St. Louis.

tious disease in ice used for domestic purposes

lyn comes from the Hudson river between

might bo spi cad umong the consumers. Ho
finds an average pint of melted ice contains

Hudson ice contains more than other ice. It

A Cold AVnter Decision.
Dcu. 5. A very linK | > rtant
decision and turn likely to bo far-reaching In
its consequences was rendered In thu supreme
premo court to-elay In the so-culled ICnnsns
irohibition cases of Muglcr ngulnst the State
if Kansas nnd thu State of Kansas against
{ cibolel and others. The Judgment of the
rourt was pronounced In n long and elaborate
oninlon by Justice Harlan , who said :
The general question In each e-nso Is
whether the prohibition statutes of Kansas
lire in conflict with that clause of tliu four-
ecnth amendment which provides that "No
state shall muko or enforce any law which
hall abridge the privileges or Immunities of
ciU/cns of ttio United States , nor
shall uny stuto deprive uny person of
life , liberty or property without duo process
) f law , " That the legislation by u state pro-
libiting the manufacture within her limits
of Intoxicating liquors , to bo there sold or
jartered for general use ns u beverage , docs
lot necessarily Infrlngs any right , privilege
or Immunity acquired by the constitution of
the United States Is made clcur by decisions
this e'ourt rendered before and since Iho
iidoptlon o < ° the fourteenth amendment. It
Is , however , contended thut although the
state may prohibit the manufacture of Intox
icating liquors for sale or barter within her
llin its for ( 'cneral use ns a bevcragu , no con
vention or legislature has u right under our
form of government to prohibit any clti/en
from manufacturing for his own use or for
export or storage any uiticle of food or drink
not endangering or affecting the rights of
others , The argument made in
support of the first branch of
th'is proposition , briefly stated , is :
that in implied compacts between the state
and a citizen certain rights nro preserved by
the hitter which are guaranteed by constitu
tional provision , and with which the state
cannot interfere ; that among these rights Is
that of manufacturing for one's own use ,
either food or drink. The proosition | and
argument made In support equally concede
that the right to manufacture ilrink for one's
personal use is subject to the condition that
such manufacture elocs not cndangeroraffect
the rights of others. If such manufacture
docs prejudicially uffocttho rights and Inter
est of the community , it follows from the
very premises stated by counsel , that u so
ciety has power to protect itself by legisla
tion against thu injurious consequences of
that business. As was was said in Mum vs.
Illingers , while the i > ewer does not exist
with the whole people to control rights that
are purely and exclusively private , thu
government may requiru each cti/.en ! so to
conduct himself and se > use his own property
as not to unnecessarily injure another. Hut
by whom or by what authority is it to bo de
termined whether tbo manufacture of a par
ticular article of drink , cither for general
use or for the personal use of the maker , will
injuriously affect the public. Under our sys
tem that power is lodged with the legislative
branch of the government. It belongs to
that department to exert what uro known as
the police powers of the state. It must deter
mine primarily what measures nro appro
priate or needful for the protection of public
morals , public health or jmbliesnfety. It does
not nt nil follow from these principles
that every statute enacted ostensibly lor the
promotion of these ends is to be accepted an
u legitimate exertion of the polic-o powers of
the stato. There are of necessity limits be
yond which legislation cannot rightfully go.
As the courts must obey the constitution
rather than the lawmaking department ol
the government , It must upon its responsi
bility determine whether in nny purticulai
casu these limits have been passed. Keeping
in view these principles , us governing ichf-
lions with each other of the Judicial anil
legislative departments of the government ,
it is difficult to perceive uny ground for the
Judiciary to declare that thu prohibition by
Kansas of.tho manufacture and sale within
her limits of intoxicating liquors for general
use there a.i a beverage is not fairly adapteel
to the end of protecting the community
against the evils which confessedly result
the excessive use of ardent spirits. There
is hero no justification for holding
that the state under the gulso merely ol
police regulations is aiming to deprive a citi
zen of his constitutional rights , for wo cannot
shut out of view the fact , within the knowl
edge of all , that public health , public morals
and public safely may bo endangered by the
general use of intoxicating drinks , nor can
wo ignore the fact established by statistics ,
accessible to every one , that the dlsonlcr ,
pauperism nnd crime prevalent in the coun
try arc in n largo measure directly traceable
to this evil. If , therefore , the stuto deems

functions , override the will of the

the assertion thut prohibition of the nianu

Justice Field concurred in the opinion so

Kansas prohibiting the sulo of intoxicants

not prepared , however , to say that
the prohibition of the manufacture of suet

Another Important Dec'lxlon ,
WASHINGTON , Doe. fi. A decision waswen-
ilercd by the United Stutes supreme court
this afternoon In the Virginia habeas corpus
cases of Attorney General Aycrs nnd Iho
commonwealth's ' attorneys , Scott nnd Me-
Cube , who Lwcro Imprisoned by order of
Judge Hond , for disobedience to n restrain
ing order forbidding them to
bring suits for the collection of
tuxes in e'nscs whcro tenders had been made
by receivable coupons cut from state bonds.
This court In a very long und elaborate opin
ion by Judge ) Matthews , holds thu suit In
which Judgu Hond Issued a restraining order
in the cm-cult court , nlthouph nominally a
suit ugiilnst individuals , is In reality u suit
ugalnst the state of Virginia und us such Is
forbidden by the eleventh amendment to
the federal constitution ; that the United
States circuit court had therefore no author
ity to entertain such suit. In so doing und
In Issuing u rcslrulnlng order to prevent the
officers of llio sluto from discharging their
duties under the laws of the state ,
ludgo Hond was acting without constitu
tional warrant and that the restraining
order nml ull subsequent proceedings under
It , Including the arrest and Imprisonment of
petitioners , weru illegal and without author
ity. The court therefore direct * tlmt the pe
titioners , Attorney General Aycrs and the
commonwealth's attorneys , Scott and Me-
Caho , bo nt once discharged.
The opinion , which Is that of the whole
coiiiC with Iho exception of Judge Harlan ,
who dissents , sustains the state of Virginia
ul ull points and viitually declares thut astute
stuto , us u political sovereignty , cannot bu
sued or coerced in the federal courts , cither
by action brought against her by name or by
action brought against her officers In Ihoir
official capacity unless by express consent of
the state.
This Is not Intended In nny way to infringe
upon the principle which Justilies suits
against individual defendants who , under
cover of Iho authority of unconstitutional
legislation by the state , arc guilty of personal
trespasses und wrongs. "It need not bo ap
prehended , " .Tuslicu Matthews says , "that
tliu constitution applied to the eleventh
amendment In this case will embarrass or
obstruct the execution of thu laws of the
United States in cases where stuto oftL'ers are
officers arc guilty of acting in violation of
them , because tliu United Stutes deals with
them as individuals owing obedience to its
authority. Astute has not ( rawer to Inipuit
to them any Immunity for ivsjioiisibllity to
the supreme court of the United States. "

Bookkeeper Walters was then cross-ex
amined ut considerable Icngtfi. He said the

stated also that Hurpcr had a fictitious credit
with the First National bunk of Now York
upon which ho drew. Wallers slated that ho

Inasmuch as President Carnet was com-
uinillvely unknown here his portrait at-
.fueled the most attention und comment , und
ils three competitors come In for Interest ,

ild in giving the first full account of the

lime several years ago when It In Now York
javo an account of the death of ox President

London paper was silent about that event.
Several club men weru heard hoping that

There was a faint exhibition of intelligence
when hu was receiving thu last offices of the
church. When the physicians came
at early breakfast tlmo with thu in
tention of pcrcparlng n bulletin thuy

their patient had calmly , painlessly and un
consciously passed away. So ejuietly was his
death that his nephew , the Duke of Norfolk ,
his three nieces , Ladies Mary Philllpa and
Margaret Howard and his private secretary ,
Mr. George Sheffield , who watched by the
bedside , wcro unable to fix the minutes of
dissolution from first to last. There no was
opportunity to senel dying messages
to his only surviving sister , who is
married to the Haron von Worthburg , of
Havarla , as his baronetage and baronywliieli
ho inherited , and ills viscounlship and recent

Lord Lyons Joined the Konmu Catholic church ,
his conversion , although not much talked
of , having been known to his friends and in
timates for some time past. On the day of
his paralytic seizure his lordship received the

Dr. Hutt , chaplain to thu Duke ! of Norfolk.
Ho had been through.a complete e-oursoof in
struction , and since his return to London was
frequently to bo seen ut mass at Corpus
Christ ! church , in Maiden Lane.
Ho had won the gratitude of the
church when ho prevented the expulsion of
thu English passionisls and the breaking up
of the historical college of the English Hene-
dictcs at Donny. Ho had cleverly r.sked
Count Hcust , the Austrian ambassador , to
oppose the departure of the German
Jesuits in the Eve Lafayette on in
tentional grounds with the secret ap
proval of the German embassy. When
the precedent had been established he good-
humoredly obtained its extension to the Eng

that the body should bo intencd on Satur

mains will bo icmovcd from the Duke
of Norfolk's house , St. James square , to

When Sullivan was Introduced at 10 p , m.
to the audience a lady next to mo remarked
to u feminine friend :
"He seems a jolly nice follow. "
Judging from the appioving looks of the
two or three hundred ladies present this
seemed to bo their general verdict. Sullivan
was In evening dress and said :
Ladies and gentlemen , I thank you very
much for your kind reception und I hope I
hall always please you and deserve * it.
Presently , In prl/o ring accoutrements , ho
reappeared with Ashton.
Hound one began by both hitting fast and
furious , Ashton getting tlo | most blows in
und appaicntly having the best of it.

but Ashton stuck fairly well to him until

Hound three-After shaking hands both
got together , when John had soon the best
play and both c'llnching und fibbing amid
great applause. When this round cumo to u.n

Sullivan came to the front and said , in answer
to n few hisses :
Ladies and gentlemen : You will excuse

always In an audience such ns thin you will
find some pigs without tails.
After this even the dissentients laughed ,
for the applause seemed unanimous.

I am strictly sober and only occasionally
