BEEPS RESPONSE The Speaker Replies to a Name less Writer A DEPENBE OP THE HOUSE BTJLES The Question of Quorums and How to De termine TlnEir Own era to Have Opportunity to Sell to Uncle Newspaper Charge Good a Privileged Eternal Tariff Rascality at St Notes WASHINGTON ClTT Aug this weeks North American Review Speaker Reed will make reply to the criticism of to have been inspired if not written by Mr re cently appeared In that publication The criticism was on the new rules of the house and waa a vigorous presentation of the objections to the present method of doing business The following extracts from advance sheets give a very general idea of Mr Heeds argument The Consent of a Quorum Tho presence of a majority of the legislative body tnnatttuto4 n quorum to do business The eaionce of nil luslness on the part of the legis lative body In the consent of a quorum of that body either express or Implied It may boas thoroughly expressed by sihmcu as by sound In tho parliamentary sense Presence always implies full sijjht and hearing of all that t akei place If a n lumber then is present in full flight and wound of alt occurrences and if all action Is loudly proclaimed by clurk or speaker ho Is much a party consenting to all that oc curs RH If ho voc fcrated in his loudest tones This all admit Even the writer of ihe anony mouH article nrtajUgthis in all cariun oxcept that of a yea and nay vote Hence even with him wo have only to deal with that method of determining tho result How to JJotermino Consent It must be obvious that nil methods of de termining tho consent of the members are of equal valuo By raeh of thorn laws are passed which have equal validity Whether the aenao of tho house is made manifest by more volume offlnnnd or by the rising of the members in their places by members passing between tellers or by yeas and nays makes no differ ence whatever in tho result Laws passed either way have equal force What theu j waa the object of the constitutional provision j aa to yeaaand nays Was it to establish a new and separate doctrine of quorum Was the quorum to bo a majority present when all other mothc da of determining the question were used but a majority voting when yeas a ii naya were called Was there one Quorum to bo required in one case and another quorum in another Does it require any different body to paJS a bill by yeas and nays than by a rising vote A majority of the house being present can 1JJ members to one pass a bill atandtng up and not pass it by yeas and nays Piirpofte ot the Yeas and Nays A claim like this utterly ignores tho me of the call for yeas and naya and tUo right to hare It which Is given under the constitu tion What were the yeas and nays given for Look at tho debates on the adoption of the constitution and you will sco It was to In m the people how tho representatives tod if they voted at nil and also the Tact that they did not vote if such was tho caso 1he idea that In addition to this tho consti tional quorum was thereby instantly shifted from a majority present to a majority acting entirely a modern Invention as illogical It Is unconstitutional Some Sure fistic Reflections Mr then refers to tho proposal of the unknown writer to apply another rem edy to the trouble of nonvoting and says Did it ever occur to the reader what a singu lar dispensation of providence it is whereby those who do nothavo the things of this world to do t on Id have always done them so much better than tho poor creatures who did do them Did you ever sue a sidewalk committee wbo could uot 1 ulld a finer house than the architect and master workman It r calif looks as if providence had wasted its most cloying S3 on tlio desert air The new rule wtrch tho critic suggests is that the jpeaker should fine each member who refuses to vote ui t exceeding 83V and thereby com pel the horse to drlnlc The lasr allusion refers to the remark of X M C Llmti you cnn lend a horse to water but cant make him drink DO use

Repudiated NETV YoitK Aug B Harri son in speaking to a press reporter yes terday about the Cape May cottage said that when the parties visited Washington City with the deed of the cottage the president declined to accept the gift but told the wouldbe donors that as they had prepared the cottage for the family he would arrange for them to go there and would determine later whether to rent or buy the cottage Mrs Harrison was so pleased with the cottage after occupying it that the president decided to buy it and did so Other Real Estate Referring to the Echo Point real estate purchases Mr Harrison said that the land was bought as an investment It lies outside of the District ot Columbia and could not be affected by any action of congress or the District commissioners The property standing in Mrs Harrisons name is owned by her father Dr Scott He wished it deeded to her because of his great age and In lieu of a will A Recent Interview Denied Mrs Harrison lias informed Russell Harrison that sbe never made the state ments about the gift of the Cape May cot tage which wero attributed to her She never gave an interview on the subject Mr Harrison added that he was sorry that some Independent and Democratic papers had attacked tho ladies of the presidents family The course of these papers was more marked wheu the uni form kind treatment Mrs Cleveland re ceived from the Republican press is con sidered A Rftp for Chicago Paper Every lover of decency will resent the Sume Odious Am lean Good Advertisement for the Russian Relations British Cabinets with the Pope To Be Incident Trans pires In Men Shot Down and a Small Riot LOXDOS Aug cables report that the United States postal authorities had excluded Tolstois Kreutzer Sonsita from the math is received here with ex pressions of mingled astonishment and ridicule A wellknown literary man said last night In view of the nauseating and paltry indecency of many American nov those of women are coming over hereevery day and which are presumably allowed to circulate through the American mails one can hardly credit this report that Tolstois re markable though painful study has been singled out for the rare iondemnatiou of the United States government It will be interesting to see what will follow If the Washington postal authorities have constituted themselves censois of literary morality they must not stop short with Tolstoi Who will be the next victim or perhaps it would be more correct to say the next beneficiary from an advertising point of view of their fastidious judg mentP Justifying Toljtol Another critic on beiingj shown the ca blegram said This is a very singular official action The fact is that the Kreutzer Sonata is as 1ar removed from the erotic of fiction as a physiological textbook is from an obscene picture book While we may question Tolstois judgment we are not permitted to doubt the exaltation of his purpose in writing the book Eminent medical men and moralists have agreed that the subject matter of the book is one that demands recognition and that Tolstois treatment of it while not perhaps conclusive is justifiable on the ground that it is sci entific in aim though popular in method course of a certain Chicago paper in pub lishing disgraceful fabrications to the ef fect that Mrs Russell Harrison Is not treated well by Mrs Benjamin Harrison and Mrs Mclveo Every one familiar with the facts knows that tho story of that pa per is an outrage on decency and an insult to truth Runs Round the Diamond CHICAGO Aug scores recorded yesterday by the base ball players ware

mission of Gen Simmons to Rome was de clared by Gladstone to be for the purpose of obtaining papal influence in Irish af fairs The counter attack by the Tories was under cover of a query propounded by Russell Unionist He asked tho gov ernment whether any papers existed in the foreign office relating to the Erring ton mission to Rome during Gladstones government Smith government leader promised to make inquiry on the subject Gladstonesaid v as any thing in tne natureof a mission to the Vaticurs from the government with which he had been connected A Ouestioii of Precedence In the house Smith refused to express any opinion in answer to a question whether Cardinal Manning or any other priest ought to have precedence after the members of the royal fnmily The gov ernment did not intend to

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
