signed. FARI8. Feb. IS. The assumption uf the
office of chief executive .of, the i'ranch
republic, today Is marked out from pre
vious inaugurations by the fact that, until
M. Falllerea' arrival at the Elyaee. no
president of the third republic has ever
found hi predecessor there to formally
transmit the powers conferred on him bv
tha constitution. Either because of aa
aasalnatlon, sudden death or irsignatlon
of office an Interregnum, during which
tha cabinet has exercised executive pow
ers," has preceded the beginning of each
new presidential term, and for one or an
other of these reasons the function of In
stallation has been denuded of ceremony.
When the first president. Thiers, re
signed. In May. 1873, the country waa pass
ing through a very critical period of Ha
h later y and his successor. McMahon,
merely conaented to accept office aa pro
visional, president, and It waa only In No
vember of that year that h agreed to
continue for the full scptcnnctc, destined
to be cut short by his resignation. Orevy'a
auooesslon passed off quietly and unosten
tatiously and at his re-election there waa
no necessity for a tranemlaxion of powers.
Carnal filled the place left vacant by
Qrenejr's practically enforced retirement
owing to the decoration scandal. He entered
the Elysee direct from Versailles. The an
archist Caserlo's dastardly deed left the
country In mourning, so that there waa no
room In thu midst of the national sorrow
for rejoicing at the coming of Caslmtr-
', Porter, who soon decided to give up the
Maitlon, for what reason waa r.ever clearly
explained. Fu re followed, once more

tion Counsel Maclay Hoyne today sub
mitted a report to Mayor Dunne upon the
litigation now In progress between the city
of Chicago and the Chicago Telephone com
pany, in which he urges that the fran
chise of the company be forfeited to the
city. The statement of Hoyne to the mayor
In part reads:
In view of the fact that the Chicaao
Telephone company la now negotiating
with the city for a new franchise, and in
view of the arbitrary and arrogant atti
tude whicn thla coni.iany haa maintained
for so many years past toward the city
government, its officials and the public at
large, I would respectfully recommend that
the city urgently request the mate's at
torney to proceed with all possiole dis
patcn to obiuln a forfeiture of the license
anu privileges granted to the company oy
the oidlnanee of January 4, ltf$. The pres
ent negotiations can then proceed upon tne
basin that tue telephone company ut the
present time is a mere tresspasser in the
streets of the city.
Mayor Dunne, after a consultation with
Mr. Hoyne and other city officials, decided
to nsk the states attorney to proceed
against tlie telephone company In accord
ance with the suggestions of Mr. Hoyne.
It was decided to allow, during the prog
ress of the legal proceedings against the
company, the Issuance of temporary
licenses, revnkable at will, that the tele

the consular service Antwerp haa been rele
gated to a consular position, which seri
ously affect Colonel Church Howe of Au
burn, Neb., consul general at that place.
The senate committee on foreign rela
tione shifted tho consul general for Belgium
to Brussels, in conformity with a plan to
confine consuls general to the capital of
foreign states. This action 1 particularly
unfortunate with reference to Antwerp be
cause of the extraordinary Importance of
that port In the commercial world and be
cause of the foot that all the principal na
tions have a consul general there, while
they have nono nt Bruesel. An effort Is
being made with the house committee on
foreign affairs to have the present statu
of Antwerp retained. Senator Millard waa
not aware of the action of the senate com
mittee until after the bill had passed the
senate, his time being so fully occupied
with the continuous hearing of the senate
committee on interoceunlo canals that he
could not familiarise himself with the pro
vision of the Lodge bill. Now that the
matter bus been called to his attention
Senator Millard Is putting forth every ef
fort to ad Hist the matter.
