Wasiiinoton, Feb. 29 The three
cases in which importers sought to test
the constitutionally of the Mi Kinley
tariff act were today decided by the
United States supreme court. The courl
affirmed the judgements of the New
York and Illinois circuit court of the
United States in favor of the constitu
tionality of the act.
The three cases mentioned were those
of the llovd, Sutton Co., aed Herman,
Sterbaeh & Co., each against the United
States, and Joel Earhardl, collector of
the port of Now York and J. V. Farwell
& Co. against Clark, collector of
the port of Chicago. The grounds on
which it was claimed that the tiuiff
act is unconstitutional were that the
tobacco rebate section of the bill had
been omitted in its enrollment after its
passage hy congress, and therefore the
bill signed by the president was not the
hill passed by the legislative department
of the government ; that the reciprocity
feature was a transmission to the ex
ecutive of the law making power, anil
therefore void, violating the whole act;
and lastly that the act is void because
of the sugar bounty provision.
IT IS LEGAL TO COI NT A QUORUM.
Wasiiinoton, Eel). 29. The ' no quo
rum ' case, in which tlie legality oi me
Oingley worsted act was attacked by
importers, was today decided by the
United States supreme court. The
Uingley act passed through the action of
Speaker Reed in counting a quorum
when the quorum was of members pres
ent but not voting. Tlie importers main
tained that Sjieaker Reed's action was
in violation of the constitution and the
act passed in this manner was void.
The court, in the opinion of Justice
Brewer holds that " the quorum " rule
was valid, and the house of representa
tives had a right to make such a rule.
The constitution provides, says the
opinion, that, a majority of each .house
shall constitute a quorum to do business,
and iis capacity to transact business is
then established, created by the mere
presence of a majority, and does not de
pend upon the disposition or assent or
action of any single member fraction of
a majority present. All that the consti
tution requires is the presence of a major
ity. Tlio constitution has prescribed
no mothod of ascertaining the presence
of a majority, and it is, therefore, clearly

Wasiu.vgtos, Feb. 29. Negotia
tions lietweeu the United States and
tireat Britain looking to submission to
arbitration of the controversy between
the two countries in regard to the Behr-
init sea seal fishery reached a favorable
conclusion today. Pauncefote, British
minister, signed tislav the aureetnont ot
atbi'.ration in behalf of England and
Blaine on behalf of this government.
The treaty is subject, however, to the
action of tlio British parliament and the
United States senate. The exact terms
of the treaty cannot now be etuted, but
it is known that the board otarbitta
lion will consist of seven persons, two
representing the United States, two rep
resenting Great Britain, one of whom
is to be a Canadian, and one each repre-
I ienting the neutral government of France
Sweden and Italy .
are due to the low price of silver and
the litigation in which it has been in
yolved for several years. A big suit for
damages that had kept the mine closed
for two years was settled a year ago at a
cost of 180,000 cash and notes for ffii),-
000, which are due tomorrow. Mr. Van
Zandt left for England a month ago to
negotiate loans to meet this and take op
30,000 worth of more notes, given for
the purchase of the Oround Squirrel.
Another big suit for damages is pending
against the company. These damage
suits were for trespassing in the under
ground workings of the Blue Bird on nd
jacent mines Ovei 100 men are thrown
out of employment oy the attachments.
Revolution Imminent in Br nil.
New York, Feb. 29. The British
steamship Cyril arrived from Brazil to
day, bringing news of general dissatis
faction in that conntrv, and reports the
existence of a difference between the
army and navy there that w ill result in
a conflict whenever the two factions
meet. A serious encounter between
the two took place January 31, at
Manaos, an important town in Para, in
which three sailors and one soldier are
known to have been killed, and many
injured. Captain Oliphant, of the Cyril,
says continued troubles in Brazil might
be expected, and that a general revolu
tion is not far distant.
C:iticl Stite of AEatri.
Vienna, Feb. 20 The authorities of
