A cordon of blue-coated, brass-but

as they marched majoHtically oyer t the

As the iioueo and senate sat in j int
session and littteuod i'jiotly to the count,
those atirring da a were recalled. Of
the 15 men who sat on the turnout doc
toral cotnmiasiou ahich decided that
contest by peaceful meane, Senator
Hoar of Manaachuaetts was the only one
prenent. The otlieia, rxwptinK JuBtice
Field, have all retired from public life,
nr have passed away. The vicieHlttides
of political fortune in two aboil decades
have removed all but 17 of IboBo who
then rat in either end of tho capitol.
Most of tbo 17 survivors were conspicu
ous in the joint session. Two of t hem,
Kheriuan, who is soon to he called to the
first place in the McKiuley cabinet, and
Mori ill ol Vermont, author of the war
tatitT, entered public life together, 40
years agn. Tiia others were : .Senators
Teller of Colorado, tiordou of Georgia,
Allison of Iowa, Cockrell of Missouri,
Hale and Frye of Maine, Burrows ol
Michigan, Mills of Texas, Blackburn of
Kentucky and Elkina of West Virginia,
who were then in the houe.
Vice-President Stevenson was also a
memlier of the house at that time. Mr.
Cannon, of Illinois, (who lost one Urm),
and Mr. Cothberaon of Tex a, alone sur
vive in the houso the imitations of 20
years, aiinougti Mr. I'amoru ol umo,
who was a member of that congress, is
also a member of the present body.
Tones of Arkansas and Hutler of North
Carolina, w ho managed the democratic
and populistic campaigns, were present,
but did not appear to take a deep inter-
eat in the count. Prominent also in the
sea of faces was the white-haired Hena-
tor Palmer of Illinois, who beaded the
gold democratic ticket last fall.
The count itself was very formal.
President Stevenson sat at the side of
Speaker Iteed and preided over the joint
session. Senators Lodge and Blackburn,
on tbe part ot the senate, and Groevenor
and Richardson, on behalf of the house,
acted as tellers. Tho returns weie
opened by tho vice-president and an
nounced by the tellers. The reading of
the certificates, long in verbiage, was
omitted, after that of Alabama bad been
road. No demonstration occurred at
any point during tho count, but when
the vlce-pretident at its conclusion an
nounced the result there was a round of
applatuc, both on tho floor and in tbe
galleiies. The totals were as follows :
For president McKinley, 271 j Bryan,
For vice-president Hobart, 271 ; Sew-
all, 140; Watson, 7.
There was do demonstration during
the several announcements. The digni
fied and solemn presence ol the senate
soomed to put a damper on the usually
effervescent spirits of tbe house. The
galler'es, Imprestod by the profound
character ol the proceedings were re
strained by the quiet which roigned on
the floor. Tally-cards bad been dis
tributed nt the houae,-and many mem
bers and several ronators checked oft
the states as tbelr votes wore announced,
At the conclusion of the state an
nouncements, the totals were fooled up
and aigued by the tour tellers. Senator
Lodge, oo bchulf ol tho tellers, then an
nounced the result, say lug:
"The state of the vote for president
and vice-president of the United States
as found by the tellers is : Whole num
ber of electors, 447, of which a majority
Is 224. William McKinley, ot Ohio, lias
received 271 votes for preiident, and W.
J, Bryan, of Nebraska, has received 170
"The state of the vote for vice-presi
dent Is: Garret A. Hobart has received
271 electoral votes. Arthur 6ewall 149
votea and Thomas K. Watson 27 votes.'
Lodge handed the result to the vice
president. Stoveniou rose and repeated
the vote, adding the constitutional an
noyneement that William McKinley and
Garret A. itounrt were elected prcit
dent and vice-president respectively, for
the term beginning March 4. This
closed the proceedings, which lasted 50
minutes, and had been devoi l of Inci

their chamber and the honsn adjourned.

"He is the son of fo ithau Mourn., of
New Bedford, who in his timo wa,i one of
the most famous and shrewdest poli
ticians of Southeastern Massacliiiwus.
Jonathan, Hi , represented itis New Bed
ford district in the govnroor's council lor
five yearr 1884, 1885, 188C, 1887, and
"He WHS iinmonsflr wealthy, and was
a man famous for attainments along
other lines than politics anil buftiness.
His fondness for the roclely of ladies
nev'r deserted him, though ho whs past
70 years of age when lie died. The son
pwei'tmed an inheritance of something
besides money. As 'Johnnie' Bourne,
be was known far and wide, and ac
quire J a reputation as a 'high-roller,'
which is not often excelled even in these
days of fSteley dinners.
' The old gentleman laid the founda
tion of his wealth in the whaling busi
ness, and, though as a young man he was
so poor that a jack-knife was a luxury
which be had no money to buy, after bo
bad made his fortune be enjoyed it to utmost.
"Stubborn und obstinate, be would go
any leng'h to accomplish whatever he
had started to achieve, cost what it
might. Therefore, it Is not astouishing
to find tbe f on now a man of 43 or 41
'holding up' an entire legiilature and
pluying the fctar role of tiie populist
patty of the Northwest, though 1 o or 20
years ago in New Bedford and Boston
scarcely tho wildest imagination would
ever have pictured him at the bead of
such a party anywhere. ;
"Ills free-silver notions perhaps are
not so surprising, for no" only silver, but
gold usod to flow out of J.is pockets with
astonishing freedom, according to all tbe
stDries told about him.
"No one knows how much money be
received from his father's estate but it
is commonly supposed that it was at
least 11,000,000, a good portion ot which,
however was left in trust. The old gen
tleman was reputed to be worth between
13,000,000 aud $5,000,000."
Denied by Pennoyer.
Concerning the repoited deal between
Mitchell and ex-Governor Pnnoyer,
the latter is reported by a Portland paper
'Your correspondent is laboring under
a mistake," said tbe governor yesterday.
"I have never sent one word to any
member of tbe legislature at Salem, and
am content to attend to my own busi
ness. I will say this: last Sunday
Senator Dufur, of Wasco county, called
to see me, and I told him, If I were a
member of the legielatuie, I would make
no deal with either faction of the repub
lican party. I would take uiy seat in
the bouse, ready to be counted at all
times, and so throw the responsibility of
non-organisation on the republicans. I
have never written a letter or bad any
communication with aoy member of the
legislature, and if they will attend to
their business I will attend to mine."
"Personally, I think the populists are
making a great mistuko in preventing
organisation of the bouse. Such action
on their part is revolutionary, in fact.
So far as choice for renator is concerned,
I will say that, if we have got to have a
republican, I would prefer one with good
Guancial sense rather than one pos
sessed of nothing but financial nonsense."
The Massachusetts state board of
cattle commissioners had laBt year at its
disposal 4300,000, of which more than
two-thirds was extended in payment for
cattle condemned for tuberculosis, the
full value ot healthy animals being paid.
In his inaugural message Governor Wol
cott recommends a change iu this sys
tem, ex perieuca showing that farmers
will do little or nothing to prevent the
spread of the diseaee so long as assured
ot a cash sale for nil animals found dis
eased on their hands. The governor
recommends a couieneation graded ac
cording to the condition of the animals

necticut commission, which has been
actively combating the disease, found
about one-halt the herds examined en
tirely sound. Of all animals examined

The Stars of the "Dipper."
'"The seven stais in tbe G'Piit l)p'

Aetronomy "are in reality seven splt-n-did
suns, and glowing with intense lus
ter. Iron, sodium, lufpucsiuui and
other well-known elements exist in the
atmosphere of these liars, and ilieir
massive globes, raging with Geiy beat,
rush through the depth of si see with in
conceivable speed. Five of lb ewe stars
are receding from us at the ra e of
seventeen miles per second and the
other two are traveling in an opposite
direction, It is certain that these two
do not belong lo tbe same system as the
other five. Tbirty-eeven thousand

Dipper will have dissolved partnership,

Tbe handle of the dipper will be bent

and two in another. During countlera
ages the stars which seem so steadfast
have been rushing onward through
space. 1 hero are stars traveling through
space. There are stars traveling in
family parties,' as Miss Clerko quaintly
expresses it, olonies of stars of a
friendly tendency drifting together,
others lets friendly drifting apart. De

its way through rpace is an er.ormous

Padding the Mails.
Tho New York World charges that tbe
railroads got f 10.000,000 more than they
were entitled to for carrying vbe mails
during 1896. They padded Ue" mails
when weighing time came, Ibns de
frauding tbe government. Under the
law the mail matter passing oyer a
given line is weighed every day for a
month, once in fonr years. The resnlt
in taken as indicating tbe average
amount of mail matter carried by the
road, and the company is paid for that
amount for the next four years. Tbe
World charges that wben weighing time
comes, senators, congressmen and pub
lic officials are induced lo send some
enormous quantities of mail matter
under their franks, in order to increase
tbe showing of tbe toad. Out, senator
bad sixteen tons of free matter sent sev
eral times back and forth over a single
line, to swell its averages on which the
government must pay excessive rates
for four years to come.

It is as well that Senator Morgan and

th administration that they unspar
ingly denounce such a good measure as

the pass that they even refuse to con

from the people whose servants they are.
they pave the way to the total lose of

The appointment of Lyman J. Gage is
bringing praise to Mr. McKinley frooi
all parties. No more popular selection
has beeu mado by any president for any
post in many years, ssys tbe St. Louis
Globe. Yet this Is Just such a could
reasonably have been expected. Mr.
McKinley has a wider acquaintance
among prominent men in all fields than
any president has had previous to tak
ing office since the war days except Gar.

capabilities. All his appointments thus
far have given ratisfaction to the country.
