Senate Is not yet organltcd nnd It will
take fully nnd hour nnd a halt, for that
little matter to bo attended' tn. It
could have been finished up nleoly this
forenoon, but tho Senators felt that
they should not proceed to business Un
til Senators 11. P. Baldwin nnd J. D.
Paris werejnho city, so they ndjnurn

It seems to be a wdl understood fact
that Dr, Russel who wns OUT forenoon
appointed temporary president of the
Senate, will be elected tomorrow as
permanent president The Independents
look, favorably on Edgar Cayploss for
tho position of secretary and John E.

P.M. Testa will contest with Mr. Bush
for this position.

According to Mr, Moyer, Governor
Dole agreed with tfcc, ,lhree rUlers at
his office to turn over fo Mcurer ns the
representative of the Department, of
Justice, the Customs House absolutely
and the rooms occupied by Judge Es

This formal transfer ot the cuntudy
of this Federal property was to havo
been acknowledged in writing by Gov

Mr. Moyer had hoped to close this

it wns possible fur the Executive of tho
Territory to violate his official prumlpo
and ignore tho accredited agent nt tho

Inquiries made at tho Governor's

made to Mr. Moyer, elicited this ex-'
