Omits sold tvallaule In suy part ol tlie world Teleirratihlo exchanges sola I on Portland, Ban 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 Wltnin me competency ot me uousu iu proscribe any mothod that may be rea- 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.

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.
