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 votes. 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 the legislature.
