The proceedings can warranto in nature, and hosed on call to the speaker to show cause why he prevents mq from exei cising the privileges of a mcrnb r A suit for salary can also be enteitd In either event the question for settlement will be whether the speaker has a light to declare a member unseated with- out a quorum voting To Mult Until Atkinion Votes The Democrats say they will not bring suit until Mr Atkinson votes on some bill which btcomes a law, and then they will make the point that it is unconstitutional The Republican managers are perfectly satisfied to make a test case of the matter They claim they could have a quorum vot- ing when Mi Pendleton was unseated, but in order to decide the question definitely they allowed Mr Atkinson to take his beat on W2 votes Conrt Martlals Galore WASHINGTON, March a accusa tions of cruelty on the part of army and navy officers to subordinates, as charged in the cases of Private Wild and the gailois on board the United States steamship Enter- prise, have created a gieat deal of gossip in army and navy circles here Within the next few court mnrtials will probably be under way, one trying Lieut. Stoole, of the army, at Fort Snelhng, Minn for per- secuting and Imprisoning a private soldier for refusing to perform monial oorvicos to him, and the other trying commander Mc- Calla, of the navy, at Brooklyn, for cutting down with his sword a wulor for a breach of naval regulations. These two cases com ing so clofra together have attracted unusual attention Even in departmental circles, where the cases have been topics of conver- sation, it is not an unusual thing to hear the practice of cruelty by army and navy ofB cers roundly denounced Brutality wholly Vnnecesaary. Brutality on the part of officers, it is maintained, is not at all necessary to the proper enforcement of discipline In the case of Lieut Bteele, Gen Crook is now pr paring a court martial for his trial Officially the case of Commander McCalla, of the Entei prise, has not been called to the attention of Secretary Tracy, but as soon as it is the secretary will doubtless follow the emmple of Secretary Proctor and order a court martial to ascertain all the facts in the case Private advices re- ceived here respecting the two cases men- tioned corroborate the newspaper accounts which have been published about them The Week In Congress.
