George Q. Cannon and Colonel Trumbo
Likely to be the Winners.
SALT LAKE CITY (Utah), Dec. P.O.—
In accordance with the call issued by
Governor-elect Wells, the first Legis
lature of the State of Utah will meet on
the first Monday after President Cleve
land shall have issued the proclamation
admitting Utah to the Union of the
States. The proclamation is expected
to issue on Saturday next, and the mem
bers of the Legislature are making ar
rangements to convene on Monday,
January 6th.
Among their first acts will be the
•lection of the two United States Sena
tors, for which offices there is a host of
candidates. The House will be com
posed of forty-five members, of whom
thirty-one are Republicans and four
teen Democrats. The Senate has eigh
teen members twelve of whom are Re
publicans an. six Democrats, giving the
Republi ans a majority of forty-three
on joint ballot.
The most prominent candidates for
•ors are Colonel Isaac Trumbo,
( reorge Q. Cannon, Judge C. W. Bennett,
• Goodwin, Attorney C. S. Varian,
Attorney Arthur Brown and Frank
The contest is likely to be very bitter,
and although the Democrats are in a
hopeless minority, they may hold the
>:e of power between the opposing
forces. If they decide after the first
few ballots to give up voting for the
two nominees of the Democratic party,
and throw their strength to any par
ticular candidate, it would result in
settling the contest.
Summing up the whole situation, the
chances seem to be that George Q. Can

A Young Girl Describes the Scenes At
tending the Harpoot Massacre.
Bullets Poured Upon the Christians
Like ITailstones From the Crowds
of Turks and Kurds.
BOSTON, Dec. 30.—An Armenian in
this city has received a letter from his
sixteen-year-old sister, who was a pupil
in the college at Harpoot at the time of
the massacre, giving in detail her per
sonal experiences and events that came
under her observation. The letter says
in part:
"Monday morning at the breaking of
day the boys sent us all to the girls'
college because the dangerous moment
was at hand. The Kurds had besieged
the city. Suddenly are were tola to run.
Then everybody grasped one another's
hands and ran. The bullets were
pouring upon us like hailstones without
ceasing, the flames of the burning
buildings rose up to Heaven, and every
where nothing could be seen but
swarming crowds of Turks and Kurds.
"During the rush to escape the people
Beparated into two groups. We ran
hither and thither on the mountains. In
whatever direction we went a Turkish
mob confronted us. The scene was
heartrending with the waitings,
screamings and groanings and noise of
the guns.
"While terrified and mad with an
guish, we did not know where to run.We
saw the military commander. Every
one of us rushed to him.and he said that
he would protect us. Then he led us to
the direction where cannons were lo
cated. Then of a sudden the mouth of
:iniion was turn.-d toward us.
When we saw this we left the chief and

The s<>idiers ran after us, yelling that
they would shoot us down like dogs if
we kept on running. Many did not give
attention to this threat, and ran to the
collage, where the other group hud en

lists, and therefore the Populist party
had resolved, as a matter of policy, to
take no part whatever in the organiza
tion of the Senate. The Populists felt
that the Republican party, as between
itself and the Democratic party, was
in the ascendancy, and that the re
sponsibility for legislation should be
long to the Republican party in both
houses as speedily as possible.
Harris (Dem.) of Tennessee asked
Allen whether the Populist Senators —
an annex of the Republican party—had
not deliberately determined to allow,
by their silence, a Republican organiza
tion of the Senate, and whether, there
fore, the Senator did not understand
and know that the Populists were re
sponsible for the result.
Allen replied that when the Populists
came to consider the question they real
ized that they held the balance of power
in their hands, and, he added, with
much emphasis, that they were going
to utilize it to its fullest extent as they
went along.
In the discussion following Mitchell
(Rep.) of Oregon remarked that the
Republicans were not in a majority in
the Senate. That it will be responsible
for measures whenever it has enough
Senators to pass them, and only then.
"Whenever," said Allen, "you pre
sent a respectable measure that will be
for the relief of the people of the coun
try, you may count on the Populistic
"I hope so," said Mitchell, "and I hope
that when the Republican party pre-
BentS a respectable measure, not only
the Populists, but the Democrats, will
vote for it. I should hope so, but that
is perhaps 'hoping against hope.' "
Harris (Dem.) of Tennessee asked
whether the Populist position of non
action and silence was not as satis
factory to the Senator from Oregon
(from his Republican standpoint) as if
the members of the Populist party had
been pledged to vote with the Republi
cans, and hau done so.
"I am always bound," Mitchell re
plied, good-humoredly, "to be satisfied
with whatever the majority does. And
so far as I am personally concerned, I
was not advised, when I offered the res
olution, and before the vote was taken,
as to whether the result would be a ma
jority in favor of the resolution."
Hoar (Rep.) of Massachusetts said
that Harris' remarks were calculated
to give a wrong impression to the coun
try, and that the fact was that the
committee membership required, not a
majority vote, but a plurality vote.
"Does the Republican party." 'Palmer
(Dem.) of Illinois broke in, "decline to
be responsible for the committees?"
"That question," Hoar replied, "does
not relate to anything that I am saying
at present." (Laughter.) As to Harris'
remark about the Populist party being
an annex of the Republican party, Hoar
remarked that the Populists had voted
in the past, and would probably vote in
the future, ten times with the Demo
cratic party for the once that they
had voted or would vote with the Re
publican party. In reply to Palmer's
question he would now say that he sup
posed the Republican party expected to
bo responsible in all reasonable bounds.
If the committee reported (as they ordi
narily did) measures based upon prin
ciples which the Republican party be
lieved in it would accept the responsi
bility for them. If any Republican Sen
ator dissented from them and acted on
his own responsibility, he could, of
course, do so.
"The concrete of the whole matter,"
Vest (Dem.) of Missouri broke in, "is
thflt the Populists remained silent and
allowed the Republicans to take charge
of the committees because the Finance
Committee, as now constituted, has a
majority of one of silver coinage men.
is been stated that the committee
rta of six Republicans, six Demo
crats and one Populist; but the Senator
from Colorado (Walcott) was placed
upon it by the Republicans with the un
i tiding that that would give a ma
jority of silver coinage men to that
committee. That is the concrete in this
whole business, and without that we
never would have seen our Populist
friends sit dumb as oysters when this
thing wa.s carried through."
Allison (Rep.) of lowa remarked that
omplexion of the Finance Commit
tee had not been changed from what it
was at the last Congress; its number
had only been increased. No matter
what we may say here, it is known
that that committee was and is in favor
of the free coinage of silver, and it is
also known that no organization of
this Senate could have been without,
practically, that being so, and i
fore it is that we are dealing her<- to
day with "leather and prunella" as re
spects the whole question.
Senator Gorman declared that hence

sponsible for the legislation in both
branches <<\' Congress. "Yon came

"After all. Mr. President," continued
Gorman, "the country will hold neither

ecutive chair a gentleman who was
elected as a Democrat. (This caustic
allusion to the President provoked
some laughter.) And therefore it was
BUggested in Wv- last Congress that we
CO-operate here in the Senate. The de

The debate continuing, Mr. Hale re

would have had a majority on it, and
that when they refused to do that the

they thought Congress, in view of the
message of the President, ought not to
take a recess for any length of time.
Mr. Hill made a speech, in which he
went over much of the ground of his
speech the other day. He called upon
his B to stay here and en
deavor to pasa some legislation that
would give the treasury relief.
Mr. Hill was reminded that nothing
the President had asked could be got

sense to ask the Senate to stay and
make an effort to do that which every
body knew was impossible.
In view, however, of the objections
that had been raised. Mr. Cockrell
withdrew his resolution, and the Senate

NEW YORK, Dec. MO.—The "Times"
to-morrow will publish the following
Havana dispatch dated December 23d:
The excitement in this city is almost
beyond description. For the first time
the blind supporters of Spanish rule in
the island realize that it is seriously
threatened by the revolution. The
shock has been the most severe, as it
was expected by those who have faith
in the military abilities of Martinez
Campos that th" moment had arrived
when the Cuban forces, if not entirely
crushed, should meet with such a sud
den cheek as to demoralize, scatter and
send them back flying to Camaguey.
Instead of that anticipated result of
General Campos' plans, it is he and his
whole army who are flying before the
victorious army, whose march seems
to find no opposition. It is impossible
to ascertain how many times and to
what extent the Spaniards have been
defeated. The Government has so far
succeeded in suppressing the news
which must have reached Havana. It
is said that tne mail from the imme
diate vicinity of the field of operation
has been withheld, and if any letters
have been received by private courier,
those receiving: them are careful not
to make the contents public, in order
to avoid suppi'-ion respecting" their con
nection with the rebels. One thing,
however, is plain, that is that Martinez
Campos' plans have been shattered,
and that he had been compelled to beat
a hasty retreat before the advancing
A "Recorder" special from Key West,
Fla., says: A letter has been received
here giving an account of the recent
fighting around Colon, and of the rough
manner in which the Spaniards were
handled. Some of the Spanish com
mands were nearly cut to pieces. One
brigade, composed of 2,000 men, was
practically destroyed. This brigade,
early in the engagement, became de
tached from Campos' main army and
tried to make its way to Cienfuegos.
The guides proved treacherous and led
the Spaniards through a country
swarming with insurgents. From every
point of vantage the insurgents poured
in a withering fire on the Spaniards,
and soon all semblance of discipline was
lost. The Spaniards' retreat became a
rout, each man seeking shelter from the
bullets of the concealed foe.
After four days of incredible suffer
ing the remnants of the brigade
reached Santo Domingo, on the road to
Cienfuegos. Of the 2.000 soldiers which
began the retreat 1,100 were missing.
More than half the officers of the com
mand were missing.
