The illness which ended fatally to-day began a little less than two years ago, when he was threatened with heart trouble. All about the Capitol were heard the most gineers and tamest expressions of regret this afternoon. Mr. Beck was extremely popular with the members of the Senate, and its employes and officers alike.

WASAIWGTOST, D. C. May 3.—The House to-day passed the diplomatic and consular appropriation bill. Mr. Hopkins, (Illinois), called up his motion to table th? motion to reconsider the vote b.v which the House yesterday refused to order the. copyright bill to engrossment and third reading.

C., May, 3.—Mr. BleComas. of Maryland, to-day submitted to the House the views of the majority of the House Committee on the election of President. Vice President and Representatives in Congress on his bill to regulate in part the time and rnauuer of holding elections of Representatives iu Congress of which the committee authorized a favorable report some weeks ago. The majority of the committee b.-lieve in the light of recent history that the power conferred by the constitution of Congress to make or alter such regulations should now be exerted to restrain abuses in the redistrieting of the states to secure lirsc a stable and equal representation of the people in Congress, and then to prevent intimidation or bribery at elections for Repaenta- tives iu Congress. As the country grows, more anx-' ions to secure fair elections, congress is justly urged to pass national election laws to guarantee fair voting, counting and return of the election of Congress. In Slates hostile to the exercise of the suffrage by colored citizens the enforcement of such laws is difficult indeed. The subject of a national election law is involved in the Negro problem. This anTi-gerrymanderlng bill may be effective in the white States where powerful minority of white voters are to-day .suppressed by shameful gerrymandering. It will check reckless gerrymandering in the black belt and make it easier for Represe-i-atives elected there to obtain certification of election. A KKJIITKOl'S JVOKK. He Utters a Sentiment Tliat Merit* XiOBd. Applause. By Telegraph to the Journal. NEW YORK. May 3.—Frank Buch hit August Schlansky, the elder janitor of the house at No. 8 Elizabeth street, on the head with a board on January 7. Schlansky died. Buch and lourother Italians were indicted for murder in the first degree, but it was found that Schlansky had died of heart disease, accelerated by the excitement of the fight, and yesterday Judge Marline accepted the plea of manslaughter. ''Homicide," said he "has come to be about the safest crime for a man to commit. If he wounds his enemy or steals his property, he is reasonably sure of receiving severe'-'ptinishment; but if he kills him he can feel quite confident that some lawyer, some corporation or some individual full of maudlin sentimentality will Take all possible care that if any human agency can avert such a fate he does not die by the hand of the law. For the slaynr there is any amount of sympathy; for th« s'ain there is none. I do not share in this misdirected sentiment. My sympathy is with tbe dead, and I am of the opinion that every man who takes the life of another with deliberation and premeditation should pay tne forfeit of his life."
