March senate in wrret ncsxinn yesterday disf-ussed the resolution of Dolpli for the incarceration for contempt of tllfe senate of thu newspaper men who have relused to disclose the source of their executive session news. The debate turned entirely upon the constitutional ques- tion at issue, some of the senators holding that the M'liate had no right to imprison the men for refusing to disclose pro- fessional see-rets. quoted liberally from the debate on the imprison- ment of White and in 1873 for re- fusing to disclose the source where the ob- tained a I'ojiy of a treaty with Oi-eat Britain, then under i-onsiderai ion. White and Rams- dell were imprisoned for some time and were released rnthor in deference to public opinion tliiin out of i-cspect for their constitutional rights. Senator fivarts made a dry speech, and Senator Edmunds and Senator George also spoke at some length on tho consfcitu- tional of the It seemed evi- dent before the senate doors had closed for half un hour that the debate could not be concluded licfore to-day, and one after another Ihe --eiiators skipped away. When tho senate adjourned not more than a dozen were in UicirH-ats. Of those who spoke Bcnator said lost evening that "no two agreed." An effort will be made to bring tho discussion to a close to-day, hut several constitutional lawyers of eminence are anxious to be heard, and tho whole umtte.- may go over to noxt week. MAIN STItEET, Hotel, HOUSE AND SENATE Mr. Harbour on the Illulr FrntlierKtone Seated. WASHINGTON, March the senate yes- terday Mr. Stockbridge presented petitions laid to have sipnatures of adult citi- of the United States, against the passage of the Sunday rent bill. The calendar w as then taken up, and on a vote on the increasing the pen- alou of the widow of Jlaj. CJen. was developed that no quorum was present A call of the senate was ordered, which consumed tho time up to 2 o'clock, when the calendar was laid aside and the consideration of the educational bill was resumed. Mr. Barbour advocated the bill. He spoke of the great interest which of Vir- ginia took in the measure, anil said that it had been favored in the platforms of both political parties in that state. H was of the deepest and profomidi'.t interest to the peo- ple of so much for the sake of education in the last fifteen years as the people of any other state. They had expended about for that purpose and had given to educate the col- ored illiterates which the general govern- ment had put upon thrm, not only as citi- rens, but as creigns. He expressed hi- surprise at tho lack of in- terest in tbe subject taken by the senate, and was astonished at tho opposition of the Southern senators to- the bill. He Imd no constitutional doubts on the sub- ject of this bill, as he did not belong to the hair-splitting class of constitutional lawyers. Mr. Plumb spoke in opposition to the bill, saying that it was clear to him that the peo- ple of the South did not want this money, and it that if money was liestowed where it was not wanted, it would not be wisely expended. Within two years, if this bill went over, every Southern state would say they did not want it. Tin- bill, if passed, would bo the beginning of the control of the educational system of the country by the general government, and ultimately the de- moralization of the great body of the people on the subjr'H of tho common schools. At the conclusion of Mr. Plumb's speech, the senate went into secret session and at p. m. adjourned. IN THK HOUSE. TV'ASHIXOTON, Jlarch 6. Immediately after the reading of the journal the contested election case of Fenthei-stone vs. Cate was taken up, and the oontetw, Mr. Cate, took the floor in his own behalf. He said it was the duty of the monitors not to elect a repre- sentative from the Pir-t district of Arkan- sas, but laying aside nil prejudice or pnrty feeling, determino whom tho people of that diiLrict had chosen to represent them. Mr. Ilouk of Tennessee made a strong pre- ttntation of tho claims of tho contestant. He charged that tho "Arkansas bull-dozing com- ffiunity'' had entered into a conspiracy to prevent the return of Mr. Featherstone to congress. He appealed for a fair chance for the colored people of the South, and said: "Let no man hold a sent upon this floor who was returned by the means of Winchester rine chins and fraudulent bnllnt boxes." He was in favor of a national election law, and he thought the goveinmcnt strong enough tn protect tlu neased was formerly a school teacher. REPUBLICAN LEAGUE. Lalt at tl.na Adopted. NASHVILLE, Tenn., March the Republic un league convention re-assembled yesterday afternoon it was 3 o'clock. The order of business was the reports of com- mittees, and the first committee to submit its report was the committee on resolutions. The platform as presented was adopted after a heated discussion over an amendment that was finally tabled. It congratulates Presi- dent Harrison upon his eminently wise, loyal and administration, nnd rejoices in the restoration of dignity, 'vigor and statoknianship to the conduct of foreign affairs. On the subject of tariff it says: "We demand the maintenance of the Ar.H-ricnn system of protection to American industry nnd labor, the policy that has been identified with every period of our national prosperity But we pledge onr support to a thorough and equitable revision of the tariff, so as to adapt the protection it affords to changed business and we arraign the Democratic party for the manner in which for years it ban prevented thaacoom- plishinent of this purpose. PROTECTION TO VOTEB8. The platform demands full protection for Republican votes in the South; protests against seating in congress any one unless his- election is untainted, and indorses the present action of congress in carrying out this policy; favors the general provisions of the Intel-state commerce act; condemns com- bines and trusts; approves of liberal and equitable pension laws and the liberal policy of the administration in giving Union veter- ans preference in appointments. LABOK LEGISLATION. The platform continues: "We recognize the dignity of labor and the necessity of proper legislation to protect its interests. We shall unswervingly oppose any attempt to lessen the fruits of toil, or to place honest workmen in competition with paupers and domestic or foreign. The rigid enforcement by this administration of the alien labor con- tract law commands our approbation. The request of wage workers for reasonable hours of labor demands and should receive legisla- tive consideration. "We approve the action ol the various Re- publican legislatures in adopting a system of ballot reform, whereby fraud at the polls is prevented nnd every elector is enabled to vote indeiiendently and intelligently. FAVOR1NO EDUCATION. "We believe education of the masses to be the best preventive of bad government, and we therefore favor federal assistance, where needed, in the work of eliminating illiteracy among our population. The Re- publican party bos always been distinguished for its courage, and always has been prompt in recognizing any display of this quality by its lenders. In line of this policy this con- vention expresses its approbation of Speaker Reed's- action in standing boldly for the prin- ciple of majority rule against the Democratic power in ami o.it of congress." The amendment that crested the only breeze during the two days-'session was of- ferod by Isaac Revet of Washington and is tu follows: "Ar.d we demand that our repi-e- bentativesin congress redeem every pledge made to the people at Chicago in by re- pealing the internal revenue lawn, by revis- ing tlie tariff, by passing the Blair educa- tional bill anil completely restoring silver to the currency of tho country, aud by the lib- eral pensioning of every federal soldier." Cincinnati was chosen as the location of the next convention. Hon. Johu M. Thurs- ton of Nebraska was elected president, A. M. Humphreys of New York, secretary, and Hon. Phineos Lounsbury of Connecticut, treasurer. After passing resolutions thanking the press and citizens of Nashville for their treat- ment, the convention adjourned sine die at 7 o'clock lost night. The I'hll Welch Fund. NEW YORK, March fund raised by the and trfl-ujrers of the late humor- ist, Philip 11. Welch, for the benefit of his and children, has reached the sum of nearly Voluntary subscriptions were received from men and women in all walUs of life and in all parts of the world. The story of Welch's lingering death from cancer, and the knowledge that while suffer- ing great agony he continued to amuse public with his merry quips touched all hearts, and the letters received by the fnnd jommittoe contain many feeling references to this ending of n brilliant though brief .-nreer. The fund will be deposited with a trust company, to be paid over to the family in annual sums, the last payment to be made in 1990. .Mr. Mlnnlck PITTSBURO. March Minnick, a citizen of Bradilock recently confined in Dix- mont asylum for insane, under very peculiar circumstances, was brought before Judge White, m common pleas court yesterday under habeas corpus proceedings for exam- ination as to his insanity by the court. A large number of witnesses, together with tbe accused, testified. The effort to establish Mr. Minmrk's insanity was a failure and he was discharged from custody. The case was first brought to public attention by Roliert J. Cunningham, a representative of The Leader. Owing lo Urn prominence of ttie interested parties the case has excited widespread in- terest. Rxllnt Fi-MUdfl In New Jerftey. TRENTON, N. J., March senate com- mittee, has finished the re-count of the Hud- son countv ballot cast in the senatorial elec- tion on the contest of W. H. Stuhr against the present senator, Edward F. McDonald. The official returns show that Mr. McDonald received votes and Stuhr The re-count gave McDonald which in- cludes "jokers" or fraudulent voters, and Htuhr 1G.8SW. If the committee throw out tho precincts where fraud was detected it will still give McDonald a majority of 1 Cane. LOUISVILLE, March Phelps of the American association telegraphed President Young of the National league, ask- ing him to fix a date for the meeting of the board of arbitration before March 15, to set- tle the Lehane case. Mr. Fhelps said he did not think that Lehane haji signed with New York. If he has signed Mr. Day's contract and the Columbus club should demand it, will certainly be black-listed. Mr. Phelps thinks, however, that the matter will be settled by Lehane going to Columbus. ThrcatenM to Kesieti. COLUMBUS, O., March to the refusal of certain members to act with him in securing a modification of the Owen Sun- day closing law Senator Brown states that he will present his resignation to the gover- nor. If carried out this will greatly em- barrass the Democratic majority in party legislation and the passage of tbe congress- ional redistricting bill. The Chancellor Mot DlMouraced. COLOGNE, March Gazette says that at the coming meeting of the reichstag the government will demand fresh military credits, and will again introduce the anti- Socialist bill which was rejected by the last rekbstag. A RATTLING FIGHT. THE ALBANY CAPITOL BESMEARED WITH RUDDY GORE. Awcmbl.rman Rice Takes the Peace ranker's Part and (he Peaeomakcr's Black Ejes and Hlo.xlr Nosei for to the Rill Pro- posed by the Assembly Committee. ALBANY, March with black and bruised faces, and outsiders with bleeding nows formed a disagreeable scene in the committee room corridors of the capitol yesterrlay afternoon about 5 o'clock. The cause of the free fight which was insti- tuted is briefly told. Arthur Carsey of New York appearel, with his son and five or six railroad men, before the senate labor com inittee to oppose the weekly pay bill. There were also present a reporter of a New York paper named Dunham, Assemblyman Rice a Mr. Buckbee ol East Albany. A con- troversy arose in the committee rooms over the publication of certain articles in the paper represented by Dunham, and after some Imul talk between hi in imd the elder Car- Bey they were all ejected from the committee rooms. Hardly had they reached the corridor be- fore Arthur Carsey inade a remark to Dun- ham. "You're a retorted Dunham. Quick as a flush Carsey sent out a right- hander for Dunham'x face. Dunham dodged and Assemblyman Ruw stepped between the men. Carrey's son, thinking Rice was about to hit his father, jumped forward and sent his fibt with full force in Rice's left eye, pmV ting it in mourning most effectually. Quicker than can be told Homebody else hit young Carsey, drawing blood and blacking both optics, and then a general melee ensued, the men tumbling over one another and ham- mering and choking each other. A squad of orderlies stopped tbe fight. Assemblyman Rice and Mr. Dunham both wear black eyes. The elder Carsey's face was and swollen and his son's eyes were black and his nose bleeding. Mr. Buckbee had very little collar or necktie left, a man named Douglas was catching red fluid in a handkerchief and several other participants were trying to restore damaged hats to origi- nal shape. It was only upon threats of ar- rest that a continuation of the flght was pre- vented. Mr. Dunham said, after the affietf, tbat be had simply told Mr. Carsey thtt he was not speaking the truth. Mr. Carsey said that he did not allow anybody to call him a liar and his son said that ha only went into the fight to protect his father. Assemblyman Rice said that he was simply trying to stop a fight and was not intending to be actually engaged in it. He was pushing the men apart when he was struck. RADICAL CHANGES In Ssxton Bill Proposed b; the AiMfmbly Ameudmiint. ALBANY, .March The assembly judiciary commitew's amendments to the Kaxton ballot reform bill prove to be rather radical. Tbe principal amendments are: Allow ing the certificate of nomination for senator in the Fifth district to Bled with the county dorks of New York and Rich- mond counties; providing tbat when the nomination is for an office to be filled by the votes of the city and county of New York, the county of Kings and the city of Brooklyn; the number of signatures required for the certificate of nomination shall not be less than 300. Posting of the candidates' names is made unnecessary in cities where publication as required by section 10 of the bill is made in two or more daily papers of the city. The nomination of a man is void if he de- clines twelve (instead of ten) days before election. Objections tn certificates of nomination must be filed within three (instead of five) days. Simple ballots in the form of those used on election day and containing the names of all candidates duly certified shall be printed iind in possession of the county rlerk or other officers or boards having the duty of preparing ballots, seven days before election, subject to public inspection. The official Inilloth shall bo printed and in posses- sion of county clerks or other ofllcers at least four days before election, for inspection by candidates. The New York municipal ballot contains names for all public offices to be filled ex- clusively by votes of said city and county or of any district, within it, except candidates for congress and the state senate and assembly. The two ballot clerks shall be chosen from the parties polling at the last election the largest number of on stuta issues. The inspectors of election shall remove the stub from each ballot in plain view of the voter, and without unfolding or discovering the contents of the ballot before depositing it in the ballot box. Nominations for town or village offices shall be filed with town or village clerks five (instead of three) days before election. The net shnll take effect July 1, (in- stead of The senate bill provides that um.ilii iul ballots may be used only when a candidate die'i. The assembly committee amends by allowing unofficial balots to be used also when a man declines o.- becomes in- eligible. Clifton Kacen.

Th. Claim. Title to Pn- Railroad MONTGOMERY, Ala., March United States marshals, directed by United States Marshal Walker, are confiscating all the timber from the lands originally granted the Mobile and Girard railroad, the title to which the government now claims. Near Andalusia the saw mills of Miller, Parker ft Hodges, John I. Dixon, LinJsoy, Kimmons Bro., H. B, Garrett, B, Mulligan Co., fV. B. Steele and Jones Bros, have been seized by the marshals. Mills near Brewton lire in the same predicament. All rafts flouting down the Escarobia river, the timber composing which was cut from the lands in question, have been seized. Hundreds of mill employes are out of work. The action of the government in stopping the lumber trade over half a million aci-es of the best pine lands in the South, works a serious hardship on Ihe luniliurmen, and Judge Par- dee will Nj aaked to so modify his order as to allow the mills to run until a flnal decision is rendered. Motions for the appointment of a receiver for the lands in question will be heard by March 10. present. Judge Pal-dee in New Orleans Attorney Ueneral Miller will be MR. SCOTT'S BIQ DEAL.
