The bill introduced in December last ! "by Mr. MeCall, of Massachusetts, to give United States district ' courts jurisdiction first over contested election cases was ordered to be favorably reported Friday by the elections committee of the house. The report accompanying the bill was written by Mr. MeCall. It shows that the question who are prima facie members of the house is really determined by the county and state officials having control of the votes. These ofllcials, it says, are generally political ollicers who have no special qualifications to decide judicial questions. They usually hold offices for a short term, are often candidates for reelection.* and susceptible to partisan influence. The courts, on the other hand, are made up of judges trained in the law and created for the express purpose of considering and determining legal questions. The report shows that for many years the decision of contests for seats in the British house of commons was made liy the house itself, but in 1SOS a statute was passed conferring- jurisdiction in contested election cases upon l;he courts, and the new method is Tinivcr- ally admitted to have worked well. The report concludes: "There can lie no Question In the mini! of anyone \v!io i-arefully considers Uic recent lits- t.ory or contests In cho house that they ure decided purely on F llrtls; «> grounds. The members ot a majority or u committee and also of the house n-Ul be found voting usually on one side and the members of the minority on the other. That side is right which hus the most voi.es, anil the record of the Jw. ten congrCMies. Which shows ihttt forty-live states have bi.-ua taken from Die minoriH', ami substantially aone Iroui the majority, is conclusive evidence th.it the decision is inuile by numbers un'', .aot acvordhig to ln\v nnd justice."

Tex.) *poko of the great interest manifested hi the senate in Hawaiian matters, and said itwasaa old tale. It was a powerful sugar interest in the United States and in the Hawaiian islands >\vhich was constantly demanding that the new Hawaiian government should be protected by the iron power of the United States. Senator Mills wen t on to argue that: the senate had no right to call on the president to know why or how he had executed a law. The Hawaiian resolution went over until Saturday without action, but first a substitute for it was offered by Senator Vest (dem.. Mo.), declaring that "While the people of the United States earnestly syrnputhi/.ed with the effort to establish republican institutions wherever that effort is made, they reaffirm the polic3' of absolute non-interference" and that the administration of President Cleveland in maintaining this policy "deserves the ap- prova.1 . uncl support of the American people." The Nicaragua canal bill was then taken up, the agreement being to have the vote taken at 5 p. m. TO CELEBRATE AT JERUSALEM. Movement on J'out to Properly Observe the Opening of the Twentieth Century, Puii.ADEi.riiiA, Jan. 25. — A joint meeting of the Council of Thirty-Six and members of the association, which proposes celebrating the closing of the nineteenth century of the Christian era nt Jerusalem by erecting a temple, "in honor of the Christ," was held at Carpenter's hall Thursday night. A memorial to be presented to congress was adopted reciting that as five years hence will conclude the nineteenth century of the teachings of Christ, it is proper that the nations of the world be 'invited to appoint commissioners to meet in the city of Jerusalem to close the nineteenth and formally open the twentieth century of the Christian era. The memorial further says: "And your memorialists further respectfully sUKKCStthut the presldcntof the United States be requested to appoint commissioners to cooperate with those *o be appointed by governors of states and territories, and thus have the United States of America represented in the city of Jerusalem at the time named.
