S. D. . Jan. 8. ( Special Tele
gram. ) The first fight of the acsalon came
up today Irv the senate on a Joint resolution
to repeal article xx of the constitution and
nubmlt to tlio people at the next tsencral
election. A number of bills were Introduced
In the senate providing for amendments of
the election laws and purity of the ballot.
In the hotiso the principal bills Introduced
\vcro : Illlla regulating the lobby , fixing a
maximum rate of telegraph tolls , Increasing
the membership of the supreme court from
three to Jlvo members , Increasing penalty
for officials who falsify accounts , providing
penalties for bribing In public office. A
number of bills were also presented In the
house providing for reform of the ballot
and for punishment of election enemies.
All the members of the railroad commh-
eton arc hero , Tompklns arriving today.
They will organize as soon as they can BO-
cure the attendance of the old secretary
nnd the records of the ofllce , possibly Mon
Senator Palmer took advantage of the first
opportunity to Introduce the railroad mrns-
uro on which ho made the principal part
of his campaign , and It was given Its first
leading In the nenato yesterday afternoon.
The joint resolution Introduced In the
house by Representative Olcson for an
amendment of the constitution , making full
citizenship a qualification for suffrage , Is
largely duo to the fact that under the prra-
tnt law numbers of foreigners are rushed In
and their first papers paid for by cam
paign committees just about election time ,
and this often gives a partisan advantage
on this vote where It could bo secured by
the votco of "gehulno" citizens.

WASHINGTON , Jan. 8. Arguments In the
election contest of Thoinaa E. Watson , late
candidate for vice president onlho populltt
ticket , against James C. Black of the Tenth
congressional district ot Georgia , were begun
today before the house elections committee.
It was thought Mr. Watson would bo pres
ent , but he did not put In an appearance.
The sitting member , Mr. Black , was among
those who heard the arguments of a formid
able array of counsel , Messrs. Cross , West ,
Glenn and Rountrco appearing for Watson
nnd Meesrs. Cummlngs , Lamar , Cohen and
Wright for Black. Mr. Glenn. In behalf
of Watson , argued that the entire vote of
the city of Augusta should be thrown out
Jbccawie of a number of alleged Irregularltlcn
in registration and of the ballot boxes , lack
of representation on the boards , etc. In
behalf of Black the entire regularity of the
V election waa argued by Mr. Cummlngs , who
V maintained that the entire theory of Wat-
N son's case that a widespread conspiracy
of fraud existed , was not justified by the
facts. The committee Is not likely to vote
on the contest for the present.
The arguments took a wide range , going
into the general political conditions of the
south nnd the progress of the populist party.
Mr. Glenn contended that Watson exempli
fied this new clement , which had turned
Its back on the old regime represented by
the wealth and aristocracy of the south.
Tl\o latter clement looked upon the new
comers as revolutionists and every power
t of the old machine , ho said , was directed
A * toward crushing them. Whtlo conceding
I Representative Black's personal Integrity ,
Mr. Glenn asserted that Mr. Black was a
beneficiary of the methods employed by the
old regime ot the south to perpetuate Ita
\ortli DnUotn .Senatorial Situation.
BISMARCK , N. D. , Jan. S. The senate re
publicans met In caucus , perfected organiza
tion and appointed a committee of two to
confer with n committee from the house ai
to the tlmo for holding the senatorial
caucus. The Indications are tint Hanebrou.ih
will succeed himself , but an effort will bo
made by the populists to get enough Ola-
satisfied republicans to prevent a caucus , In
tha hopeof helping elect a republican who
will concede something to them for their
support. The republicans of the oBscmoly
have called a caucus to choceo a nominee
for United States senator for Saturday ,
January 9. Two Judicial districts , comprUi-
are always
.guaranteed to be
free from any defect
in material or

INDIANAPOLIS , Jan. 8. The last mcs-
Bago of Governor Claude Matthews was sub
mitted to the legislature todayi After mak
ing a detailed report of the condition of the
various state Institution certain recom
mendations arc made. Notable among these
arc a compulsory education law and a law
prohibiting the formation of trusts or their
operation within the state , a violation of
wlilch should , he says , bo met with heavy
penalties. The message does not fecommcnd
the celebration of the Indiana centennial ,
which was considered at the last session
of the legislature , but urges careful consid
eration of the proposals submitted by the
committee already In existence , and If It Is
deemed that the present depressed times will
not Interfere with the undertaking an elab
orate celebration should bo had. The men-
sage asks for on accounting by the Vandnlla
railroad as to the matter of Its alleged debt
to the state under an old charter , nnd that
the attorney general be empowered to em
ploy help needed In any legal procedure lookIng -
Ing to this end. The governor expressed
strong sympathy with the Cuban Insurgents
nnd recommends that the legislature at least
adopt a resolution requesting congress to use
every effort that nt least belligerent rights
bo accorded them by our government.

SCDALIA , Mo. , Jan. 8. Miss L. Draytou
Aetor , an heiress and descendant of tlio
late John Jacob Astor of Now York , Is em
ployed ns a chambermaid nt the Hotel Slcher
here , under the name of "Draytlc Langdon. "
She Is a daughter of W. D. Astor , who died
lu St. Louts twenty-three years ago , leav
ing hla only child In charge of her aunt ,
wife of the late Major Langdon. Six years
later the aunt died , leaving Draytlc to fight
her way In the World. She ncaulrcd a
common echool education nnd was sfnt out
as n public speaker by the National He-
form association. Three years ago she
suffered a severe attack of pneumonia and
was compelled to abandon her vocation on
account of a weak voice. Then she went
to live with her aunt's relatives In Sallno
county , Missouri.
Attorney Garrcscho of St. Louis , who has
Miss Astor's Interests In charge , says she
will receive a legacy of $20,000 In June ,
1897 , left her by a cousin , Miss Drexel of
Philadelphia , who recently entered a con
vent. She will also receive in October the
deeds and full title to a 4SO-ncre tract of
land In Saline county , Missouri , which Is
In a high state of cultivation and Is very
valuable. The land Is part of the estate
of Miss Astor's aunt and has been In litiga
tion for thirteen years. Recently the case
has been decided In favor of Miss Astor ,
It having been shown that It was purchased
with money belonging to her father. Law
yer Garrescho says that by August next ho
will have disposed of three wills , which
will leave Miss Astor In possession of $70-
000 , besides which she will receive , after the
first of May next , an annual Income of $ G,000
from the estate of the loto J. J. Astor of
New York.
Mies Astor Is a grand niece of the lalo John
Jacob Astor , deceased. Her mother was n
Drexel. Her father was connected with
Blows' lead factory at St. Louts , and at
the tlmo of his death was studying law.
Miss Astor was 12 years old when her
father died. She says she prefers doing
the work of a domestic to living on the
bounty of relatives until she comes Into
her property.
The girl's story Is generally discredited
here. The first Intimation of It came to a
newspaper In an anonymous letter , date !
Jefferson City , nnd postmarked Sedalla. Lot-
tic , Leon or Droytle Langdon she Is known
by all of these names tellii the story of
her great connections haltingly. She Is not
qulto certain of the Initials or given name ? .
She says she knows William Waldorf As
tor , who came to St. Louis for her when her
father died , and when she refused to go with
him ho got very angry nnd said she should
have nothing. The anonymous letter Is re
garded by thosu who received It as a hoax.
It was the badly disguised writing of a
person who writes a good hand , and the
spelling Is obviously the Illiteracy of an
educated person ,
KANSAS CITY , Jan. 8. A special to the
Star from Scdnlla says : Miss L. Drayton
Astor , who has been working In a hotel
here , awaiting the time when she should
legally become heir to part of the Astor
tstatc , Is greatly chagrined at the news
paper notoriety accorded her here and
abroad. She says she does not wish the
Idea to gain currency that she has relatives
with whom she could bo living , but prefers
to work in a hotel. Her father , she says ,
was alienated from his family by his mar-
rlago to a Catholic , and during hc.r lifetime
she has had nothing to do with her relatives.
Relatives with whom she resided In her
early days , she says , arc all dead , and she
docs not care to burden friends pending
the settlement of her father's claims to the
Astor estate and payment of the legacy
left by her cousin. She decs not think It a
disgrace to work , and Is content to wait a
few months longer for the Inheritance.
NEW YORK , Jan. 8. Representatives of
the Astorsl deny the story sent out from So-
dalla , Mo. , to the effect that Miss Drayton
Astor , a chambermaid In a hotel there , was
an heiress , Inheriting an annuity of $5,000
a year from the estate of John Jacob Astor.
The eMato knows no such person .
AilniiiK Convleteil of StenlliiK Money
from n I'ONtolllco.
A Jury In the federal court yesterday
returned a verdict , finding Charles Adams
guilty of stealing money from a postoOlce.
A motion will be made for a' new trial. On
May 30 last , whllo tbo postmaster at Millard -
lard was momentarily absent Jroin his
ofllce , Adams went Into the postodico and
helped himself to about $90 of government
money. He was shortly afterward arrested ,
but the money was not found on his person.
It was presumed that ho throw It away
when tbo officers approached him.
The attorney for James Dally withdrew
the plea set up that the former Jury which
tried Dally had been discharged , without
his consent , and the case will proceed to
trial. The district attorney telegraphed for
Judge Eblras , who presided at the former
trial , to como and hear the argument on
the pica , but after It had been withdrawn
Judge Shlras was notified that ho need not
Apropos to the near approach of the ex
piration of the sentence of Charles W.
Masher for the wrecking of the Capital Na
tional bank at Lincoln , there arc two cases
against him now on the docket of the fed
eral court , but District Attorney Sawyer
said yesterday that It was hardly possi
ble that they would be pushed , as ho thought
the points In them had been practically
covered In the former Indictments.
District Attorney Sawyer admitted yes
terday that It would bo almost Impossible
to reach the cases against Frank M. Horsey
nnd Ezra Higgles , charged with the wreck
ing of the First National bank of Ponca , at
this term , but as the term at Lincoln Is not
much more than a continuance of the ono
here , he hopes to bo able to arrange far
trial there. HIgglns Is still In Jail here ,
having been unable to secure a bond since
his rearrcst In Missouri several weeks ago.

"A Friend" has written the following
trlbuto to the memory of UIG dead man :
"llllly" Shull has Joined the silent ma
jority. Ills life wont out sweetly nnd
'cncefttlly , nnd , Mtiough not unexpected ,
the news brought n P.UIB of pmlnos.i to hla
rent number of friends. In poor "llllly"
§ hull's soul the spirit of humanity nml
good fellowship wis predominant. He
socmed the embodiment of litownlng's
Idnnl when he rorote :
"Hand Krnsjm hand , eye lights cyo In
good friendship ,
And great hearts expand.
And crow ono In the sense of this world's
fife. "
Ho coula not have existed without con
genial companionship , and the sad death of
the beloved companion of hlo life a few-
years ago doubtless hastened his own tak
ing off.
"Billy's" mission on earth ( and every man
has one ) , It always seemed to me , was to
disseminate pleasure and sunshine to cheer
hla fellowtnan and lighten the load of care
and trouble In this sorrowing world of outn.
Many a ono who has como under his fra
ternizing Influence will miss the sunny old
face , the strung grasp ot friendship , the
cheering words , the hearty congeniality ot
"Billy" Shull , nnd yesterday many a. tear
fell from eyelids that seldom glvo outward
expression to grief nJ the frame that but a
short time ago held his great soul was ten
derly laid away by loving friends.
"Billy" had great griefs of his own , but
ho bore them manfully. Never n word of
complaint escaped his lips , but during the
last days of his life he seemed to derive
great comfort In the hope that ho would
soon bo with his wife.
I am sure that the good God of us all
will judge "Billy" Shull by his overflowing
goodness ot heart , and that these qualities
of soul which fie exercised so charitably hereon
on earth will secure for him a title to the
home beyond the mists.
Vale , "Billy , " till we meet again.
"Leaves have their times to fall ,

.Meat Ilcv. Frederick Temple , D.I ) . , was civ
throned today at the cathedral here as nrclv
bishop of Canterbury and prlmato of nil
England. The approaches to the cathedral
were crowded , and the old edifice wae
thronged with spectators eoon after the
doors wcro opened. The mandate for the
enthronement was presented by the vlcai
general to the chapter of Canterbury , In
the treasury. After this ceremony the chajv
tcr proceeded to the deanery nnd conducted
the archbishop to the great west door. The
procession was formed , bended by the bcdcs'
men and the high seneschal , fallowed by the
municipal representatives.
Archbishop Temple was attired In full
nrchoplscopal robes , his long scarlet train
being borne by two boys , king's scholars ol
the Cathedral school. They wore , accordlns
to Immemorial custom , surplices of pure
white linen , yellow sandals and little purple
caps. The order of Installation was read In
Latin , and the archbls'hop was conducted to
the marble chair accompanied by the arch
deacons of Canterbury , the venerable 13cn-
Jamln F. Smith , M. A. , and lit. Ilcv. George
n. Eden , D.D. , attended by the dean ol
Canterbury , Hcv. F. W. Farrar , nnd the
vice dean. The marble choir , known ns the
.patrlarchlal throne. Is said to have been
used by St. Augustine , nnd In It , during
many centuries , the archbishops of Canter
bury have been enthroned.
The now archbishop of Canterbury Is one
of tbo most advanced liberals among Eng
lish churchmen. Ho Is a professed advocate
of Darwin's theory of evolution , nnd , upon
the occasion of his confirmation as arch
bishop of Canterbury In the church of St.
London December 22 Rev.
Mary-lc-Bow , , on ,
Sir. Drown John made an Ineffectual protest
against Dr. Temple's confirmation on the
ground of the lattcr's belief In the theory
of evolution.
The archbishop of Canterbury , who was
born In 1821 , has been successively head
master of Hugby , bishop of Dieter and re
cently bishop of London. Ho took a double
first class nt Oxford nnd married a daughter
of Rt. Hon. W. S. Lasccllcs.
Later In the afternoon the dean and
chapter entertained the now archbishop ol
Canterbury and a numerous company at
luncheon In the library of the cathedral.
The city was thronged with sightseers :
There was a dramatic Incident ns the arch
bishop was traversing the nave at the end
of the procession. A voice shouted loudly :
"Tho whole1 proceedings are a fraud. " The
Interruption came from on elderly gentle
man of clerical appearance. Ho was
promptly and forcibly ejected amid consider
able excitement. The spectators nt first
thought that the disturber was Her. Mr.
Ilrown John , the clergyman who protested
against the confirmation of the archbishop
In the Church of St. Mary-le-Dow , London ,
on December 22 , asserting Ineffectually that
the archbishop should not bo confirmed , as
he was a believer In Darwin's theory ol
evolution. Dut It developed that the name
of the Interrupter today Is Greenwood and
ho Is not a clergyman.

A meeting Is to be called for some evening
next week to discuss the advisability of
voting bonds to the amount of (5,000 for
erecting a new high school 'building. ' The
school district at the present time la not

In the project assert that the proposed bonds
would sell readily at par , or possibly a
premium. Members of tha Board of Educa
tion and Superintendent Munroc assert that
moro room Is needed , and that something
must be done before long to relieve thu
crowded condition of the down town school
buildings. The Intention Is to arrange the
matter so that It may bo voted on at the

bis mother watching over him. The mother
of Napoleon was n strong , healthy , active
woman. She brought into the world n fain ,
ily of smart , handsome , healthy children.
Without health nnd strength Napoleon
would never have risen above the position
in which he was born. His mother could
not give him wealth or high station in life ,
but she gave something better. She gave
him the ability to secure these things for
himself. She equipped him with a strong
body nnd n clear intellect. Every mother
may do ns much for her son. The first btcp
in this direction is perfect health for her
self. Perfect health in n womanly way. She
must take thought for the most important
mid delicate organs of the body. She must
keep them strongly healthy for the perform
ance of the greatest nnd most wonderful
work in the world. Women do not suffi
ciently appreciate the importance of health
and carefulness. This is shown by the
dreadful prevalence of so-called "I'cmale
Complaint. " IJvcrywoman maybe strong
nnd healthy by taking Dr. Picrcc's 1'nvorite

tended to cure just otic kind of disease , and
it cures it. It works directly on the female
organs , cleanses , strengthens and makes
them healthy. It makes weak women
