dentials of Edmund Winston Peltus as
senator from Alabama for the term be
ginning March 4 next.
Allen of Nebraska offered a resolution
for a committee of nine senators "on the
use of money in elections." The resolu
tion directs the committee to thoroughly
investigate the extent to which money
was used in connection with the recent
presidential election, either in promot
ing nominations or influencing the
choice of presidential electors, and to
inquire whether such expenditures were
excessive, illegitimate, corrupt of unlaw
ful, and to especially inquire and ascer
tain to what extent for euch purposes,
the owners of silver mines, gold mines,
bankers, manufacturers, railroads or
other incorporations and millionaires of
all classes made contributions, and if
contributions were made by any persons
or corporations residing abroad. ' The
resolution empowers the proposed com

and directs that a report be made by the
first Monday of December, 1897.
Allen sent to the clerk's deBk and bad

taining charges of iregularity in con
nection with the recent election. The
resolution was referred to the committee
on contingent expenses, Allen remark
ing that he earnestly desired a speedy
The bill validating some New Mexican
bonds, passed and now goes to the president.
Morgan of Alabama took the floor to
make a pre-Cuban speech, taking the
ground that as the president had made
no recommendations and gave no indi
cation of his intentions, congress must
assume responsibility on the matter ot
most serious gravity. Morgan used very
strong language concerning the conduct
of the Spaniards in Cuba, characterizing
them as "robbers, cutthroats, assassins,
ravishers and pirates."
Morean closed at 2:10 p. m. The
senate then agreed ' to bis resolution
calling for information on the Com
petitor and other cases. N
The Day In the Honae.
.Washington, Dec. 15. Representa
tive Woodman, of Illinois, today intro
ilnced a joint resolution directing ' the
president to intervene in Cuban affairs.
' The resolution, after reciting Maceo's
assassination and Spanish cruelties in
Cuba, says the president having failed
to carry out the wishes of the people, the
honor of the JJnited States is at stake,
and histqry gives no precedent on which
to base a hope that the Spaniards will
consent to compliance with civilized war
The president is directed to express
severe condemnation of Spanish meth
ods of warfare, especially the murder of
Maceo ; recognize the independence of

Caracas, Dec. 15. Many persons of
education and position in the republic
have begun to realize the importance of
the protocol arranged between the gov
ernments of the United States and Great
Britain for the settlement of the bound
ary dispute in Guiana.' This statement
is given on the authority of politicians
It may be added, on authority, that
President Crespo will not yield to any
popular demand, but will hold firm to
his purpose to accept the proposed
Anglo-Venezuelan treaty. Serious peo
ple, in fact, according to the best infor
mation, are beginning to understand
that it might be unwise to reject the
protocol, and they are fortified in their
belief by the attitude of the government.
The more the protocol is studied, poli
ticians say, the more certain becomes
the prospect that the sentiment of the
people will uphold the efforts of the
United States in their behalf.
In order to foster this sentiment it is
semi-official ly announced that states
men of prominence will publish articles
on the protocol, and the proposed treaty,
emphasizing their efficacy in the deter
ruination of the question, and advisa
bility of acquiescing in the terms. '
THE PACIFIC RAILWAYS.
Movement Toward Securing Early Ac

Washington, Dec. 15. The senate
committee on Pacific railways today
agreed that in view of the fact that the
mortgages of both the Union and Cen
tral Pacific are now practically doe it
was important to secure action by con
gress at the earliest practicable date.
Senator Morgan was the only senator
present who dissented. He said he did
not desire a delay. He expressed the
opinion, however, that fuather testi'
mony should be taken. He was over'
The committee decided to ask for a

The Origin of This Ever Popalar Enter-
Generations of children have found
pleasure in witnessing1 the antics of
Punch, and Judy, and the mimic the
ater in which their adventures are dis
played still gives amusement to both
roung and old. The origin of this al
ways attractive entertainment is not
English, as many Vho have enjoyed it'
may suppose, but according to an old ,
book, Punch and Judy are of Italian
ncestry. In the district of Acezza,
near Naples, the people are very much
addicted to the making of wine, from
grapes; and it is curious that from
antiquity they have been famous for.
their love of droll wit and comic fun.
Many years ago in the season of the
intage, which is a. time when every
body seems to be full of fun and frolic,
some comic players came along
through. Acezza. They began to poke
fun at the vintagers, and in war of wit
the players got the worst of it.
Now, there was among the vintagers
a, fellow with, an enormous red nose,
long and crooked like a powder horn;
and he was the very drollest and wit
tiest of the whole company. The play-
rs were so tickled with his witty say
ings, all set off by his odd face and very
queer air and manner, that they almost
went into hysterics with laughter.
After they went away they began to
think that this droll fellow would be a
great success to their company; so
they wenfback and made otters to h;im.
These he accepted; and euch was the
success of his efforts that the company
acquired great fame and a great deal of
money. Everybody went to see this
witty buffoon and all were delighted.
This example led to the establish
ment of a droll or buffoon in all com
panies of comediaEs; and he was al
ways called after tine original one,
whose ncme was Pucco d'Anicllo. Tills
was, in the course of time, softened into
Polecenello; the French -made it Po
lichenel, and the English Punchinello.
After a. time the English, for the sake
of brevity, left off tha latter part of the
word, and called it plain Punch.
Hoy Judy originated,' history does
not record; but it is very easv to sur
mise her story. Such a merry fellow as
Punch had as good a right to a wife as
anybody, if he could get one. 'Why not?
One might, think that his bect-likc rose
would have stood in his way cf liiulinp-
a woman willing to marry him; but his
wit was an offset to this. Woiupi are
fond of wit, and Punch would have
played his part, ill if he could not have
made it cover his nose.
Now thsit we have supposed Punch to
have had a wife, and also supposed Ikt
name to have been .Tudv. what was
more natural than for this amiable
rouple, now and then, to have a bit of a
breeze? They lived a wandering life,
and; like other people in their station,
took a. little liquor to raise their spir
its. After the effect was over, feeling a
little peevish, they fell to calling eacfi
other names, and hard blows followed.
So this is their whole history. Detroit
