March after the morning business Thursday the Senate went into secret session to consider the question of imprisoning the newspaper men who have been guilty of publishing the business of the Senate in executive session, and of re- fusing to tell where the news was ob- tained. The discussion turned to the constitutional phase of the question and for a long time the Senators debated whether, under the Constitution, they had a right to imprison the newspaper correspondents. Every Senator who has any knowledge of constitutional law spoke at some length. The question of the definition of "sedition" having raised, a copy of Webster's Dictionary was obtained and the definition there given was read and commented upon at some length. Among the orators of the afternoon were Senators Edmunds, Allison, Plumb, Faulkner and Dolph. Mr. Dolph read to the Senate a paragraph from Wednes- day's Washington Star, as follows: "The Senate 'smelling' committee was not in session to-day. The Senate itself is sap- posed to be maturing a plan to close the mouths of journalistic lions who are en- deavoring, with a good deal of success, to tear the entrails out of secret ses- sions. It is probable that the business, or fun, or whatever else it is, may be taken up to-morrow-, but to-day nothing will be done because Senator Dolph, who is chief of the ia giving a Salmon lunch in the restaurant." This paragraph, Mr. Dolph said, was written by a man who enjoyed the privi leges of the press gallery. He thought it was an outrage that a man who was granted special privileges by the Senate should be allowed to abuse one of its members in this way. the course of his talk to the Senate, Mr. Edmunds proposed that the old remedy be applied in this all the Senators ajif employes of the Senate take an oath of purgation to re- lieve them of all suspicion for what had been done in the past, and that the mat- ter be closed with that. Mr. Ingalls laid before the Senate a proposition that a committee be appointed to confer with the press committee. Ho thought the rules of the press galleryshould provide that any man admitted to its privileges who published what purported to be a report of the proceedings in executive sessions should be expelled. Mr. In galls' proposition did not meet with much favor and both the Ingalls and Ed- munds propositions were laid aside The Senate then adjourned, with the understanding that the matter would be disposed of to-day. x. Tbe fall Mystorlotu Murder Cleared Up After Twenty-four Sensation Created by the Story of a Crine Perpetrated in a Penn- sylvania Tillage. CUUen DahwrdwM His Mlad ol TerrinU Secret and Acknowledges FhyaMM. NORBISTOWX, Pa., March mys- tery surrounding the killing of Dr. Joseph H. Levering, of Lower Merlon, twenty-four years ago, has been cleared up by the death bed confession of John G. Henderson, who died at this place Tuesday evening. February 18, 18W, Dr. Levering was ia the act of putting away his team for the night, and while going out of the stable the report of a gun was heard from behind a stone wall within ten feet of the door in which the doctor stood. The doctor's residence was close to Henderson's store, between the villages of Rosemont and Whitehall. The unusual report of a gun within the yard of the dwelling aroused the family and the lifeless body was found two minutes after the shooting. Alarm and exitement drew a large crowd that evening and every house- holder joined in scouring the neighbor- hood for the assassin, Henderson assist- ing his neighbors. An inquest was held, but without result The excite- ment occasioned by the shooting was slow to die out. Ths leading citizens of the locality, including Henderson, is- sued circulars offering a reward of for the apprehension of the murderer. Last Tuesday, Henderson being sick and fearing that he was to die, called his family to his bedside and in the presence of the family physician con- fessed to killing Dr. Levering in cold blood. He described the tragedy mi- nutely. Henderson expired a little be- fore midnight. He gave no reason for his bloody deed and the confession has caused as much of an excitement as did the crime itself. IMPORTING CHINAMEN.
