ffirdlntr Seotlon 8.
Harrisburg, Pa., Sept. 13 Attor
ney General Hensel has given the sec.
retary ot the commonwealth an opin
ion regarding a construction of tbe
third clause of section 3 of the Biker
ballot law, which requires nomination
paper to be signed by at leasf 3 per
cent, of the largest entire vote for any
officer elected at the last preeediog
He says the law means just what it
ays and that the election for congress-man-at-large
in any particular distriot
oannot be made the basis of distriot
nominations. Tbe opinion was given
because of a question raised by the
chairman ot the People's party as to
whether the vote of 1892 or February

tion. A WOMAN HONORED.

Washington, Sept. 13 On Sept. 28
the demurrers ot brokers, Elverton R,
Chapman, of New York, nnd John
MaCartney, of this city, to tbe indict
ments charging them with unlaw
fully refusing to answer questions
before the seuate sugar investigat
ing committee, will be argued in
tbe distriot of Columbia criminal
court. The arguments will be on
constitutional grounds that is. the
contention will be that the senate com
mittee had no power to compel wit
nesses to answer questions. In the
event that the demurrers are sustained
no further action will be taken in the
matter, as the government has not the
right of appeal in a criminal case.
bbonld the decision of the court be
against the defendants, the cases will
be carried to the court of appeals, and
if that court, too,decides against them,
tbe matter will go to the supreme
court of the United States.
