vote on temporary speaker of the
house resulted: Tice (Rep.). 50;
Rapp (Dem.), 13; McLaughlin
(Dem.), 24; Ryan (Dem.), 7;

Springfield, 111., Jan. 8. The
state senate was unable to organ
ize today when the 48th general
assembly of Illinois convened at
In hte house an even more cha
otic condition existed. Election
of speaker was the first business,
and factional strife made imme
diate agreement seem impossible.
That the legislators realized this
was shown by their agreement to

morrow. The senate failed to organize

vote could muster only 25 sena
tors in favor of J' H. Paddock for
secretary. The Democrats and
the two Progressives rerrtained si
lent. That left the Republicans
without a majority.
The oath of office was adminis
tered in both houses by Supreme
Court Justice Dunn. Lieut. Gov.
Oglesby and Lieut. Gov. -elect
Barrett O'Hara made brief
speeches in the senate.
It is a fit time to inquire: What
about the prosecution of Wood,
head of the Wool Trust?
