News or the Week From Our Kogular Cor
respondent at tha Capital.
Americans have moer ways, in
ninny ie?peot, nnd it is not to ho
wondered at that foreigneis, who judu
largely from outward appearances,
should fail to comprehend our real
character. For instance, the United
States supreme court tliis week heiud
the arguments in the thice cases
brought against the constitutionality
of the McKinley tariff law, cases in
which it is possible for a- decision of
the court to turn the commercial and
industiial world, us far as .they are
represented in this country, upside
down and per.-onally affect in out) way
or the other, peihups one thiid of our
population, and the fact excited no
pubiie interest, ami at no time dining
thofuveral days that the arguments
were being mtulo by some of the ablest
constitutional lawyers of the country
was there fifty people in the court
room, if members of the bar were not
counted. That is one plnuo of Amer
ican character. Now for another. In
the District of Columbia's criminal
court a man is being tried for having
shot his wife and another man, and so
gieatis the public interest that the
judge has found it necessary to station
ollicers tit the court room door to keep
out the crowds.
It would be presumption on the
part of your correspondent to say how
the supreme court will decide tho
tariff cases, but it is apparent from tho
questions asked by tho justices of the
lawyers, while the argument was being
made, that the validity of tho law will
Ex-Kepicscntativo Davidson's con
test of Senator Call's seat will bo an
interesting case. Senator Call has
the certificate of election signed by
tho presiding officers of tho two houses
of the Florida legislature, and Air.
Davidson has the governor's certificate.
The case will turn upon tho right of a
majority of tho legislature, which does
not include a quorum of both houses,
to meet and elect a senator. Tho
precedents appear to bo in Call's favor,
and a number of senators, including
Yorhecs and Turpin, of Indiana, havo
expressed themselves as believing that
ho will bo confirmed in his seat. Mr
Davidson says ho is confident the seat
will bo given to him when the facts
aro fully ptescnled.
There is a general fooling of relief
that the excitement attendant upon
the hot and vicious fight for tho speak
ership of the House of Represenlativeh
will close tomorrow, when tho demo
cratic caucus will end tho suspenso of
tho candidates and their friends. Tho
fight hits boon so conducted that much
bitter feeling has been engendered
that will bo likely to crop out to tho
embarrassment of tho victor all
during the long scesion of congress
that will convono on Monday next.
It is only natural that tho man who
win will reward those who holpod
with the most desirable committee
chairmanships, and that will, of course,
leave a good many gentlemen out in
tho cold who bolievo themselves enti
tled to prominent committees.

Considerable surprise was caused
here by the announcement that tho
farmers alliance candidate for congress,
in tho election to be held on the !Hh
inst. to fill the vacancy in the Eighth
Virginia Congressional district mado

tive Lee, had withdrawn, as arrange
ments had been made by Representa

men in congress to take an active part
in the campaign. It is stated that the
withdrawal was caused by the nomina
tion of a lepubliean candidate, tho
alliance managers having eountod
upon tho support of tho republicans.
There has been a number of alarming
rumors in circulation this week about
tho condition of Secretary Foster, who
has hton confined to his residonc for
some days, but his friends say that
theio is no cause for alarm. Ho will
go tooth for a couple of weeks for
recuperation before returning to the
