It can now be stated as a certainty that
the Republicans of the South will demand
rccosnltlbn in the selection of officers for
the uext House..
This luteUgence Is a trifle staggering
in its effect upon those who have from the
OJtsel banked upon the success of a pow
erful combination, which. It is alleged,
seeks (o control the election of Clerk, Door
keeper and Sergcanl-nl-Arms.
With Col. McDowell of Pennsylvania for
the first-nanivd place. Mr. Glean orNew
York for the second, and Mr. Russell of Mis
souri for the third, the supposition has pre
vailed that enough, votes could bo aggre
gated to push the slate through the caucus
with little or no difficulty.
But the whole aspect of the pending con
testhas today beenchanged. Representative
John E. McCall of the Eighth Tennessee
District, a Republican to the core, and a
young man of brains and energy, this,
morning arrived in the city.
NEW MAN FROM THE SOUTH.
The first thing Mr. McCall did was
to take oft his coat, roll up his sleeves and
preiiare to advance in every possible way
the Interests of his friend. Col. Tipton, of
Tennessee, who has established headquar
ters in the Hbbllt House as a candidate for
Aside from being popular and in every
way qualified ror,tlic place. Col. Tipton
Is basing his candidacy on the declaration

Mr. McCall will take up this keynote
and make it the battle cry of his cam
paign. He will attempt to secure the mild
aud unanimous support of the twentj -three
Southern members for Col. Tipton.
When this unillcation shall have been
accomplished the Representatives (mm the
South will' he in a position to say to the
Hast or the West: "We have u larger
representation In Congress than at any
period since reconstruction days. We are
entitled to consideration In the allotment
of the elective officers. We hate twenty
three votes, which will be glten to good
men that you may designate for the other
places, but we want the Doorkeepership,
and what can you do for us?"
The startling character of this propo
sition is seir-apparent. The Eastern mem
oirs are presumably committed to tl e trn
didacy of Mr. Gknn, and therefore are
unable to offer anything in return for the
WELCOME THE SITUATION.
On the other hand the West is only inter
red in the success of General Henderson
for the clerkship, and might be so situated
as lo welcome the suggestion, and In re
turn give Col. Tipton such a support a
would make Ills calling and election Mire.
No such stone wallas this has heretofore
confronted the managers of what is desig
nated as the combination." Its nelghth,
depth and possible Impenetrability are ap
parent. The entering wedge of twenty
three Southern members, united and solidi
fied on the one question of Col. Tipton's
candidacy, may unhorse allthccalculatlon

In conversation this afternoon with The
Times' reporter Mr. McCall said thai he was
distinctly in favor of the Republicans of
the South being recognized In the organi

yet if Col. Tipton cannol win then he ra vors

aster on Sew York "I." Train.
New York, Nov. 23. An accident which
would have resulted disastrously except for
the usual good luck -which attends the ele
vated railroad, occurred on the Sixth
acnuc line. An engine drawing a train
of cars jumped the trackand nearly crashed
into the street.
There -were not many passengers In the
traiu at the time, but those -who were in the
cars wero thrown into commotion. Ihe
woodtu, guard rails along the track were
lorn and twisted by the rear wheels", which
ploughed across them. The sound of the
splintered timbers created excitement in
the street, where a number of workmen
were repairing the pavements.
It looked as If the engine was going to
topple into the street. The first wheel re
mained on the track, and this prevented
the engine from falling.

Chamber Unit. Been Itenowitcd in
, Complete and Unubnal Fimlllbn.
When the members of the Senate come to
stand-op for prayers on the 2d day of De
cember they will be puzzled at a cer
tain strangeness in the. familiar chamber.
The changes.made during, the summer,
while not radical, arc pervasive, and about
the only things within the lour walls that
have come through the ordeal unscathed
are Ihe busts of lone-forgotten Vice Presi
dents, well hidden lu darKcncd niches.
No such renovations have becu made
since the chamber was llrst occupied in
18511. The work of renovation was given
over to a well-known llrm n New l'ork
decorators, who have gone all over the
gilding, cleaned the delicate traceries, aud
painted tbe moldings in light colors. The
old leather doors leading to the lobby
and from tbe lobby to the reception room
have been replaced by long plate-glass
uoors, lemng in light anu adding lo me
apparent size or the chamber.
The most decided change, however, is
In the banishment of the incongruous and
ill-assorted cane-backed chairs, by means
of which a numocr of tne senators had
consulted their ease rather than the dig
nity or tbclr surroundings.
The chair of immemorial pattern only Is
allowed, but a slight concession to comfort
has been made in providing cane seats for
summer use. These chairs, together with
the desks, are of solid mahogany, but the
custom has been to apply a coat of varnish
each year. Thcsq coats of varnish have
been removed, and the natural wood has
been brought out in all the richness of color
known to Ihe days of Webster and Clay.
The kitchen tables that rormerly dl.gr.iced
the corners of the cbamlier have given place
to mahogany desks for Ihe use of the mes
sengers, and tiio'clerks" desks and the re
porters' tables have also been uncoa ted and
USED Br THE VISITORS.
The great, round, brass-grated fresh-air
ducts, used as "wanarnakcrs" by iKlting
members of the House, have been closed
and coiered with a carpet so soft to tbo
tread as to reel like moss, and the stains
or n hundred night sessions have been re
moved trom the galleries. Altogether,
the Senate chamber Is now as luxurious as
a fashionable church.
These changes in material things In the
Senate chamber will be accompanied by
corresponding changes lu the location ot
the Senators. Of the thirty members of
the Senate whoc terms expired on March
'4. seventeen were not returned .,
Many of these Senators occupied de
sirable seats, which now go.lo those who
were fortunate enough to file early requests
for the vacant chairs. On the Democratic
side of, the, chamber Senator Hill will be
misted from a conspicuous seat on the back
row. directly in front of the, door way lead;,
lug lo the cioakroorn.
He objected tp thc.draught on Ids bald
head, consequently he has moved to a less
conspicuous scat on the second row, well
around lo tbe right-df the presiding officer,
between Senators Turpie of Indiana and
Irby of, South .Carolina. His former seat
was between, Senators' Gibson of Mary
land and Daniel of'Virglnla. The other
changes on the Democratic lde nre as fol

In the front row Senator Bacon, of Geor
gia takes the end seat vacated by cx-Sen-ator
Huuton from Virginia. Senator Allen,
tbel'opulislfroru Nebraska, moves from the
back row to the chair made vacant by the
retirement of Senator Coke of Texas, Sen
ator Chilton ofTexas taking Allen's former
desk. Senator Jones of ArLon&as moves
into the place occupied by Senator Butler
ot South,. Carolina for nearly itwHve years.
In tbe second row Senator Tillman of South
Carolina, takes the end seat which Mr. Mar
tin ot Kansas occupied for a short period,
Senator Walthall of Mississippi takes the
end seat on the center alslo so long occu
pied by Gen. Ransom of North Carolina.
JEFF DAVIS' SEAT.
It Is not generally known, but it is a fact
that Jefferson Davis, when a member of the
Senate, used the desk now assigned lo Sen
ator Walthall. When Gen. Ransom was
defeated forre-clecllouSenator Gorman was
the first applicant for the seat, and it was
assigned to him. He subsequently recon

the Republican side. Senator Jcffer will
appear in the front row on the Republican
side, al the desk previously occupied by
Senator Gallingcr of New Hampshire, who
moves into the scat made vacant by the
retirement of Senator Dixon of Rhcde Isl
and, in the same row.
In the second row. Senator rettlgrew

Mr. Froctpr moves over to the desk irom

MR. BIRNEY'S ANNOUNCEMENT.
Most or the evidence on the Government's
side was on the opening day of tbe trial.
Atthebeginntngof these eonddaylt will be
remembered. District Attorney Birney,
who was making as determined a fight
for Ray's conviction as Mr. Taylor was for
tils acquittal, made the startling announce
ment that the Jury had been tampered with.
The incidents that followed have been
fully descrllied in The Times. Mr. Tailor
inslautly objected to such a statement in
open court, before the cry Jury itself.
Judge Cox sustained him. and- the case
proceeded. The same day Kay was con
victed, almost as soon as the Juroi, reached
His attorney filed a motion for a new
trial, alleging that the statement or the
District Attorney to the Jury concerning
tampering was Improper, and alsousscrt
lng that the Jury was not an Impartial one.

riled the affidavit or J. D. Sum van. a real
estate man, saying that Foreman Mickum,
ot the Jury, bad expressed an opinion to
him concerning the Kay case.
Another affidavit was subsequently filed
by Mr. Taylor, also going to sbow that the
jury had not been impartial. In reply to
the two affidavits Mr. Birney submitted
tour to show that Mickum had not made
ante-trial statements. The motion for
a new trial was to have been argued today
and both the government and defense were
making every effort to make a strong case.
Mr. Kay and his attorney and Mr. Birney
appeared in open court late yesterday arter
noon, aud Mr. Taylor withdrew the motion
ror a new trial. Judge Cox then directed
the clerk to enter tLe order of "sentence
suspended during good behavior; personal
recognizance $100 taken." Ray's bonds
man was Uien discharged and the prisoner
PROMISED TO QUIT.
Mr.Birncy'sanswer when asked how Bay
happened to be let down so easyafter heav
en and earth had been moved to convict
him was: "He has promised to quit the
business and get out of tbe place. He
will leave the Division. That was the
principal reason we agreed to the sus
pension of sentence."
The district uttorney dismissed the sub
ject without giving uny secondary reasons
for the rather startling step he had ac
quiesced in, and hurried Into court where
he liad an. engagement.
There was uo little surprise expressed
about tbe city liall this morning at tbe man
ner in which Ray got off. The sudden ac
tion or the district attorney in changing
from an aggressive policy to an acquiesc
ing disposition was remarked upon and the
n hole cac discussed by lawyers in all its
Where Ray is going or what buslress he
will follow is not known, his counsel being
able only to state that be was to go out of
the saloon business in the Division.
