Again the democrats had protested and would protest as an anconstiiutional practice, but it was a <q iC3tioa which could not be decided in this house, aid whenever the proper oc ion arose it would go to some other forum. It was the purpose of his side of the house to see that this occasion should be made in such shape as would permit it to be finally and decisively passed upon Therefore, he now saw no reason why the j urn a1, the form of which the house had a right to prescribe, Bbou d not be approved This was done When the world’s fair committee was called Caandler, of Massachusetts, offered the mowing resolution: Resolved, That Thursday and Friday, February 20 and 21 afear the approval of th j journal, beset aside for genera’ de ate on the world a fair bills and that a v lit b i taken on noonday, February 24 in the manner prescribed by the reso Union submitted in the committee’s re port — u - Ie-8 the h< toe shall have de-termini d by vote that a worlds fair shall not be held.

The speaker r»n his eye over tho house and in a few minutes said:    “There are 172 members prest n I—more than a quorum " Mr McMillan, of Tennessee, said tha* am j Tty by tellers bad not seconded the moi ice; that it was not competent for the £ floater to nuke a quorum by his gbvc! or hts penc I The sp aker .eplied that the rule pro vid«d for a count of thole who voted and the vote had rt suited in what seemed to be a rn j »rity Mr McMillin insisted that neither the speaker cr any other man ciuld assume the mon c ured herein the house while the vote wa-> b iDg taken If they were not then the* had no right to vote The speaker replied In had announced at the time (hero were 173 members present by actual couni; no one was counted who was not presented at the time the vote was taken Mr. McMillin declared the speaker would not presume that every man was hero when the tellers were ia place. The speaker replied the vote had been announced finally. Mr. Bland wished to know by what right the tel lens left their place before tho gentlemen had voted and the speaker said if the gentlemen desired to vote the tellers would take their place. Mr Mills, of Texss, maintained the! tho rules required a decision by the tell en, and argu d against the speaker’s action. Mr Gannon declared the chair had done his duty in counting tho members to determine tho presence of a quorum It was aa entirely different question from a vote bf'tellers. Mr Carlisle maintained the moment tho tellers waic ordered by the house to take I heir places tho power of the chair to c unt their report ceased He was not making an argument because he wis opposed to seconding the motion, but believed this was the most important cinstruction of the rule, and the house sh uld cot surrender its power to the speaker Mr Cantion asked under what rule Carlisle, when speaker, had ordered the roil to bi cal cd to di close a quorum wi'h nit the i is.ruction of the house. Mr Carlisle replied by citing the rule requiring tee presence of a quorum be f >ro the house bogies its daily business. H > asserted he never held that he had a right to count a q uorum on the fl mr. Mr Peters, of K msas, said the trouble was thai this bon e had been wrapped round and r< uml by cords of legal fiction unt’i it was an lifeless as a mummy. Tile speaker said in this house the question was settled that if a majority was present to do business their pres ence was all that was required to make a quorum, lf th y declined to vote their inaction could not be in the pa hway of tbo-e who did their duly In this casette Clair c tinted daring the vote aid after it cl s d, and belue sari tied of a c 'n-t im ii mal qu mu rn pre ent to do business, announced 114 yeas, nays 8, and the motion seconded. Mr Chanti er took the ti ior and announced his satisfaction at the conclusion of the world’s f ur c mmittee work and hoped its report would be given im mediate consideration M<* Hitt also urged speedy action on tho question. A motion to suspend tho rules and make a special order for the bill resulted yeas 148 rays 27. Mr Blunt demanded the yeas and nays. They resulted yeas 209, nays 56, and the special order wa* made Among the bills introduced were the following: By Uansbteragh—Appropriating $50,-000 ft the purchase of a site and the flection f an Indian industrial school in N *rth Dakota By Turner, of Kansas—Declaring the forfeiture of a I lands opposite to unoccupied sections of railroads for which the land grant was made The following reso’.u'ion was also introduced: By Taylor, of Illinois—Changing the Petit!(ma Gator#—TM* Pacific Fonding Bill Washington, Feb 17 —Mr. Daw?s preseu»ed over 240 petitions from Ma* sr. chuaetts stating that more than 800 000 gallons of intoxicating liquors a*e an nually exported from the U ited Statee to Africa, demoralizing the people there and being detrimental to all legitimate commerce with that people a d praying that under that section of the c jnftitu tion which authorized congress to regu late commerce with foreign nations, that part of the thing sh»ll be stopped He asked that the petitions be referred t the committee on education and labor and invoked the careful c msideration of he committee on the subj net. Mr Chandler presented several peti tions from Mississippi complaining of the suppression of the republican vole of the state of M SHssippi and representing that the s) calh d legislature 1 f M s sissippi had rec ntiy enacted a law e-t.bistrng a new c nstitution for the state on the 12;h day of August, 1890. the same rot to be submitted to the p o p.e for ratification, and that it was th‘ avowed purp se of the democrats to employ fraudulent methods to deprive many intelligent cit'zens of their franchise R ferrad to the committee on privilege:-ac d elections Mr Blair presented petitions signed by 36 OOO members of the G A.

The latter report, he declared, had bien drafted br the senator from Mineola (Davb). H explained that the reason why the two bills were reported back adversely wae that the committee had finally succeeded (*o its own satisfaction) rn nonsolid ming these bills in one. The bill contained the terms of adjustmeit with both 0 ra-paote*-the Union Pac flc and the Central Pacific The rep ria had been linac imously adopted by the committee a d the bill, so far as the Union Pacific wa concerned, had also b;en unanimously reported.

Capitol, Building Des Moines, la , Fe The opinion of Attorney Genera1 Stone on the salary question was the one thing which attracted attention in the house session to day. vIt goes-directly contrary to Auditor Lyons decision that the auditor of state cannot issue warrants upon the certificate of the temporary speaker. The attorney-genera’ discusses the matter at great length and deals with every part of the auditors communication to the house, basing hif opinion upon the law enacted in 1874 General Stone says: “The auditor’s opinion is based upon the idea that this ceri’ficate cannot be lawfully recognized until after the houses are permanently organized, or as he puts it, until each is fully organ ized and clothed with the power aud authority to enact law and otherw se perform the duties of a leisla-t ve b dy. Under the statute first above quoted I do not think it is necessary that either 1*16 hou:e should be permanently organ zed before a certificate can be la? fu.ly made. The making of this cor-ifiiate is not a legitlative act. It is sim-p y the official act of tbs two presiding Steers and is entirely independent of he will or co operation of the members on tho floor It derives its vitality and validity from the statute already in ex lienee, aud no further legislative act i*< necessary to secure it recognition. The house, though not permanently organ zed is nevertheless a h use within he meaning of the code. It bas been called to order by a pe'son claiming to be a member. It has el cted a clerk for thp imc b^ing who has received the certif! cates of election of the members fr.m *h:ch he has made a roll Persons cerned on this roll have anted under the statute and have appointed a committee n credentials This committee as provided by law has reported the list of menb re who, in accordance with the statute, have taken the oath of Ai e as represen’aiives. The membership of the house has, therefore been de ermined In pursuance cf the statute ^rnpowerirg the body to elect such other fficers for the time bsiDg as may be re quieite. It has elected a pres d ng officer f. r the time being who by courtesy and Jobg usage is designated ‘temporary speaker.’ By reason of the inability rf members to reach a agreement of minds all this has taken much time. But it has been public business. Since the election ■ f the temporary speakar much time has been consumed in the tffjrt to f fleet a permanent organization by the diction of i fficers. So far the effort hae been a f ihue but it has nevertheless been pub lie business in which members have acted within the scope of their powers *nd at must be conclusively presumed as their conciences dictated They have not agreed because in the exercise of individual judgement and acting upon their own connections upon the question under consideration they have oi been able to bring their minds to gether. This has all been public service performed by authored representKtives acting upon their own authorized j ldg meet as to what was best to b i done in (he interest of those who sent them here They alone are responsible for the re suits of Heir acts I do not think that under the law this service should be without remuneration nor do I think that it was intended in the statute that he permanent organization of both houses should b° a condition precedent to a partial payment." After discussing he matter still further the opinion closes ss follows: Impelled by the foregoing c nsidt rations I reach the conclusion that in order to give legal potercy to the certificate of two presiding officers it is not necessary that both or either of the houses should be in a slate of permanent organization, ard that the c rtiAcate signed by Hon. J. A r Hull, as president of the senate, and EL n. L D Hotchkiss, as temporary ape ker of the house, is lawful auth mity to the auditor of state to issue warrants ;o members and officers of the two houses aa pro vided in the section of the statute first quoted in the opinion.’ Just befire supper Auditor Lyons war asked wh<d he was going to do in the ma ter. He said he had not heard the opinion read, had not seen it nor examined ii closely, and he could not state what course cf action he would perdue. The members say if he persists in his course they will institute mandamus proceedings to compel him to pay their salaries The republicans of the house were caucusing the greater part of the day and towards evening prepared a proposition for the democrats. They wou'd not m&kfl public the condition? *hen until it hsd been presented to the democratic caucus. ADDITIONAL SENATE BILLS.

A BEEH IN LIFE. Berlin Feb. 17.—A painted woman in a coffin! That is the strange thing we have lately had in the German capi tai. To make the fact still more starting than any conceit of fiction, she was the deceased Empress Augusta. Your respondent has investigated care fully, and the truth is as here for the first time told for publication, although already discussed in the inner court cir des. Without b?ing absolutely an imperial Mrs 8kewton, the empress de cli led to the last to recognize the fact hat even empresses must grow old. AU that the arts of the toilet could do to hide the ravages of the years was done Paint, powder, cosmetics and an elab orate series of half-wigs preserved a semblance of youth a.mcs to the last, and enabled the empress to indulge in the not very harmful vanity which was one of the few pleasures of her not very happy life. She kept up these artifices through her last illness, and her toilet attendants found their duties not in the east intermitted Not only that, bu' a few days before her death she er j nned teem to prepare her for burial in the same manner. She chose the wig to be Interred in, as well as every detail of the final toilet* and was particular to mak« them promise to leave on her face the in Is of their skill As the Empress Augusta lay in her coff!a. the loveliest flowers lay around her, and she w-.8 covered with a gorgeous cloak of saffron satip edged with ermine, a lees veil covering her brow and head B it through the film of l»ce a wig of bright brown hair was visible It was one which she had worn for a vear previous, and it c >mpletely overed the scant white locks which were left to her by nature in her extreme old age An artfully managed dim lght fell on the face, but to the comparatively few who were permitted to gaze on it. the penciling of the eyebrows, the blacking of the lashes, the f A it tinge of oink in the cheeks and the red of the lips were all as they had been in life—all colored by a skillful brush. ing for some time past among the young men and boys.

Washington, Feb 17 —The contest over the rules has been a rare scene. Unable to allege any good reason why the proposed code should not be adopted the democrats have spent most of their time in denunciations of Speaker Reed and in declaiming against rulings he made before the committee on rules reported Looking down upon the terne listening to their oratory, your correspondent is reminded of a set of school boys pelting a stone wall with paper wads; it amuses the boys, while it does no injury to the wall. So their denunciations cf Speaker R ed do bim no hurt, but it discloses to the country hie strength and his worth A minister said to me to-day that the cry of the democrats for rules, and theii action since tbe proposed code was submitted, reminded him of the Israelites when they murmured against eating mrana and rritd out for fl sh to eat; foi Hardly had the quails been provided for them than they discovered that they had a surfeit of ftesh. Speaker Reed to day received an anonymous communication in which the writer said the action of the democrats in the house reminded him of one of Lincoln’s stories in which he told about a man traveling on board a steamer on the Mississippi river. He dropped an apple overboard, upon which he rushed to the captain and wanted him to stop the b >at until he could recover his apple. The democratic party finds its apple, the control of the legislation of the house, has been dropped overboard and is now asking that the buoi ness of the country shall be stopped un til, perchance, it may recover it. If the people from Iowa visiting here become at all acquained with the prevailing sentiment about the capitol, in the departments and among the people from all parts of the country do not become elated, it will be from no fault of theirs. They hear on all sides that the senior senator from their state is destined to be the next president. No wonder the people of that state admire him and insist on his re election to be his own successor Senator Allison is the favorite in the re porters’ gallery ; on tbe floor of the senate he has more friends and fewer enemies than any man who has served the e half the length of time he has, while by the politicians and all classes he is looked unon as one of the ablest and safest men now in public life. At the other end of the capitol Iowa men command no less respect. Hender son’s speech to day on the rules furnishes the topic of conversation among groups in the houie, iu the corridors and in the committee room*. When he drew him self up to his full height and said, “The irentleman from Kentucky (Caruth) who preceded me in a noble burst of elo-q ie* ce says they want a chance for ineir white ally. The republicans want a chance for the:r black ally, and utdir the constitution and laws of the country they are going to have it!’ he was greeted with a round of applause that ha* been accorded to no other member who has spoken on the question. Y jfir own member, Mr. Gear, is spoken of on all sid^B as the peer of any man on the floor. H o services on the committee on ways and means, of which he is hon ored with a membership, is recognized by every member of that most important committtee, as well as by all who have appeared before it in behalf of the vari ous lines of business, it necessarily ha* under consideration, and by those WY o have simply attended their meetings listen to their proceeding*, as invaluable He shows an acquaintance with ©Ii the important questions of the day, that surprises even those who had expected much from him. No member of the house works harder or more houri each day than he does. His mail i* simply immense, and rare is the evening that he i? not engaged foal seven o’clock until midnight or after in replying to his cor respondents He ha? a genius, but it is for hard work, and well it seems to be appreciated by his constituents, as well a* by all who have business dealings with him. Dolliverwill be heard from tonight before the republican club at D simon-ico s, New York At least he is booked i for a speech there to night, and when he does speak he is always sure of having a large audience, an audience composed not only of those win hear him, but of ail the newspaper venders of the land as well. Iowa has the further distinction of having accorded to two of its members, chairmanships of house committees, Henderson being chairman of the committee on militia; Struble being chairman of the com r ittee on territories, and C niger being chairman of the committee on coinage, weights and measures. With such men on deck no fears need be felt that the interests of tee state wifi not be carefully looked after and prudently attended to, and that too with New Orleans, Feb. 17.—J. J. Corbett, a teacher of the Olympian club at San Francisco, bested Jake KUrain in a 9:.x round contest for a purse of $S 500 at the Southern Athletic club rooms to-* night Kilrain abreed to knock Corbett out in six rounds, but was outfought at every point. Corbett is a giant youngster, well educated ambitious, and ii regarded in the west as the coming world’s champion. He has never been defeated. Kilrain stated his weight at between 201 and 205 pounds. He did not look very lively. Corbett stands six feet one and one half inches and weighs 183 pounds, but looks    less.    Mr. Eiviolep, the well known cotton man. was referee. The fight was one of the best ever seen here and Corbett is a master. He ha* a long reach and the referee allowed no close infighting. In the Ai st round Kilrain made several slugging attempts, which Corbett cleverly tvjded and in return smashed hisop-ponet in the face and stomach He was a* quick as a flash in getting out of the *ay cf Kilrain’s    leads    Finally, after much feinting and clinchieg Kilrain managed to get in a good right hand mash on Corbett'* nee* but the latter we* not much affected. He countered luck )y with his left on Kilrain’s fi.cs. The round ended    with Kilrain looking much astonished Corbett opened up the second round aith a rattling left hander on Kilrain’* face which marie that gentleman start In return he planted a vicious smashed on Corbett’s neck but the Californian never fl nchtd    while Kilrain was fainting after    this    Corbett’s left •lid ieniy shot out and caught the exchampion over the left eye, drawing blood. The crowd went wild and Kil-rain was evidently disheartened Cornett got in several rib roasters while Kilrain’s leads fell short. H o antagonist dancing away from him. After several clinches Corbett came back with a smasher on his antagonist’s face. KH rain countered and then Corbett brought hi* right around in a hurry and smashed Kilrain fq iare in the nose. In the tfiird round Kilrain was more wary and finally succeeded in getting in blows on Corbett's stomach and chest, bat Corbett did not look punished and got back with a left harder. In the fourth round Kilrain was evidently mad and pushing matters succeeded in reaching Corbett’s neck by swinging his riuht and ribs with tee left. Ile clinched and began the fighting, but lbs rtf dree ordered a break. Kilrain got in several more good body blows, but finally Corbett landed a vicious upper-cut with his right, which raised a lump slightly below Kilrsia’s left eye and immediately after he smashed K Irate on the neck. Kilrain again landed his left on Corbett’s ribs but Corbett with marvelous rapidity succeeded in landing twice on the side and face of the exchampion and getting away The fifth and sixth rounds were marked by brilliant hits on both tiles. Corbett landed a fierce blow squarely on Kilrain’s nose, and after a few further passes time a a? called and the fight was given to Corbett. WILL ABUSH r THS LADIES.
