I "Washington, "March 17. In the
honse to-day McKeuua called up the
bills to amend the census act so as to
authorize and require the superintend
ent of the census to enumerate the
Chinese opulation and to give them
certificates. Morrow addressed the
house on the bill, explaining its pro
visions and reasons "why certificates
should be given. He showed how the
ScottChinese exclusion act was null and
void, and claimed that as many Chi
nese laborers come into the country
now as before the adoption of the
Scott law. Ho believed that if this
bill was passed, the coming of this
class could be checked, if not stopped.
If a Chinese Laborer could not show a
certificate, then he should be returned.
Clunie followed and urged the passage
of the bilL Ho said the Pacific coast
demanded the exclusion of all Chinese,
including merchants, and would only
allow members of the old Chinese le
gation to enter. Owens opposed the
bill. He thought the superintendent
of the census has quite enough to do
without having this additional labor
imposed on him. He favored the ex
clusion of the Chinese, but wanted it
done in another manner. McCreary,
of Kentucky, and Vandover, of Cali
fornia, followed in favor of the bill.
At the close of Vandever's speech the
bill was passed, with but few opposing
Legal Decision oa Idaho Legislature.
Special to Thf. Astohiax.
Washington, March 17. The su
premo court of the United States has
affirmed the judgments of the supreme
court of the territory of Idaho in the
cases of J. P. Clough, president of the
council of the 15th session of the leg
islature of Idaho, appellant, against
I. J. Curtis, secretary of the territory
and that of, H. J. Burnhart, speaker
of the house of representatives, appel
lant, against C. H. Reed, chief clerk
of the house of represen
tatives and I. J. Curti3
Secretary of the territory. The ap
pellants, alleged that they declared
their respective bodies adjourned at
midnight after a session lasting sixty
days; this being the limit to which
the legislative Bession might exist un
der the law of congress. They assert
that some members of each body re
mained behind and elected new pre
siding officers, and passed some seven
teen acts. By the present proceed
ings it is sought to obtain writs of
mandamus to compel the secretary
and chief clerk respectively to strike
from the laws of Idaho, the acts
passed after the first adjournment.
The Idaho supremo court denied
the application and this court affirms
these judgments. The court says it
is not of the functions of the court to
inquire into the records of a legislative
body and to determine whether the
body assuming to be the legislature
is legal or not A suit preventing this
question, it says, might arise in some
case growing out of an act passed by
Coinages of Silver.
Special to Thk astouiak.
Washington, March 17. At a meet
ing or tho house committee on coinage
and weights and measured, the Win
dom silver bill was again under dis
cussion. An amendment providing
for free coinage when the price of sil
ver reaches SI for :171 grains pure
silver was adopted; also an amend
ment striking out the section author
izing the becrctary of the treasury to
suspend, temporarily, the receipt of
silver bullion at any time when he is
satisfied that through speculative
manipulation the price of silver is fie
titious. As several members of the
committee were absent-from the meet
ing, what has been done to-day may
be amended at the next meeting.
