took charge. The various companies
which had been drawn up about the
state bouse, according the ideas of the
individual commandants, were given
stations at the four main entrances to
the capitol on its four sides.
CORPORATION HELP INVOKED.
The Republicans, hearing of the gov
ernor's action, held a hurried consulta
tion as to the course to pursue. No
definite plan was decided on, but indi
vidual Republicans tried to induce the
Santa Fe railroad to call out its shop
men to oppose the militia. Other in
dustries known to be in sympathy with
the Republicans were alto asked to fur
nish men for the same purpose.
POPULISTS NOT IDLE.
Meantime the Populists were not idle.
Company 0 of the local militia respond
ed promptly to the call, having been
notified by Adjutant-General Artz last
night to be in readiness. They marched
to the capitol grounds, took up a posi
tion and awaited orders. Orders were
also telegraphed to Hoi ton and Marion
for Companies D and G, and they start
ed at once on special trains.
A SHOW or doing business.
In the hell oi the honse, the Republi
cans made a show of doing business.
Oreat enthueiam and loud cheers were
evoked by the presentation to Speaker
Douglass of the sledge hammer with
which entrance was effected into the
ball, and which Douglass subsequently
used in place of a gavel to call the
bouse to order. A resolution was passed
citing Chief Clerk Rich of the Populist
bouse, Howard Breidenthal and Scott
to appear before the houee for contempt
in resisting the process of the house
yesterday when an attempt was made to
NO ARMED DISTURBANCE.
There were 24 Populist assistant ser
geants-at-arms in the house when the
Republicans forced their way in, but
they did nothing to prevent it except to
warn the Republicans that they were
destroying state property and would be
held accountable for it. The only
weapons shown by the Populists were a
Winchester and a couple of revolvers in
the hands of a mild young man, who
made no attempt to use them. They
were captured by the Republicans, and
will be preserved as trophies.
This morning the Santa Fe train from
Atchison and other places brought 75
Republicans to act as sergeants-at-arms,
and other trains are expected to bring
additional reinforcements. The Repub
licans, anticipating trouble, telegraphed
for the help last night. Some of the
messages were late in being delivered,
but the recipients got out of bed at mid
night to respond to the call.
The Republican house passed a reso
lution reviewing the situation and call
ing on ail citizens of Kansas for "moral
aid and active support to help resist the
forces of anarchy and revolution."
POPULISTS WILL BE ON TOP.
Governor Lewelling was found in his
jtivate office in consultation with Judge
Webb, attorney for the Populists, and
Chairman Breidenthal of the Populist
stats committee. The governor refused
to discuss the situation, but Webb said
the Populists would come out of the
fight on top of the heap.

Topeka, Kan., Feb. 15.—The Repub

Populists have decided to freeze the
Republicans out, and the janitor haa

CANNON BUM OUT AND LOADED.
A militia company has been stationed
near the arsenal with guards posted.
Two cannon have been run out of the
arsenal loaded with shot, and everything
looks decidedly warlike. The militia
have full control of the situation, and
every move of the Populist house de
pends on the governor.
IT CANNOT LAST LONG.
The Republican house is .in no condi
tion to stand a prclodged siege. It haa
neither supplies nor the means of ob
taining them. Baring the excitement
prevalent at noon they succeeded in
running the Populists' blockade and se
cured sandwiches ard coffee for lunch.
Enough was left for a Meagre meal this
evening, bnt when that is gone all hope
of eating, except at the cost of an un
conditional surrender, is rone. Guards
are stationed in all the corridors, and
no one is allowed to enter the building.
The steam is turned off and they are
forced to wear overcoats to keep warm.
The policy of the Republicans is to hold
ont as long as possible and wait for the
forcible entrance of the militia to the
hall. They will obey no orders to va
cate the hall and will compel the troops
to remove each man bodily.
OVKKTITRKK FOR PEACE REJECTED,
At the instance of Joseph Waters, the
Republicans appointed a committee to
visit Governor Lewelling and agree, if
possible, on a suspension of the hostili
ties. They proposed that both booses
adjourn until a case could be made in the
supreme court and finally adjudicated.
The governor would not consent to this
and a wordy war ensued. Finally
Waters turned to Judge Frank Doeter,
who is the leading Populist candidate for
senator, and who has been the legal ad
viser of the Populist house, and told
him it would be his (Poster's) interest
to settle the matter, "You have been
more active than any other member,"
he continued, "in bringing about this
state of affairs; bat for your advise to
to the Populists the house quarrel would
have been settled long ago. Now we tell
you that 100 men have it in for you and

The governor said he would consider
no compromise and no appeal by the
Republicans. If the Republicans would
not surrender then be would be forced
to order the militia to drive them from

A voice from the seats asked: "Will
you abide by the decision oi the courts ?"
The governor declined to reply and
left the hall.
EX-GOVERNOR OSBORNE'S ADVICE.
Ex-Governor Osborne, Republican,
who accompanied Governor Lewelling,
said he had come with the governor
from a conference between a committee
of citizens and the chief executive, and
was assured from the temper of the gov
ernor and his associates that they would
consent to no compromise. Continued
resistance by the Republicans, he said,
would lead to bloodshed, and the scenes
of the border wars would be repeated.
Tomorrow would see the gathering in
Topeka of hundreds of Republicans and
Populists. The intense feeling prevail
ing would lead to a conflict and blood
would surely flow. He counseled mod

The chief sergeant-at-arms then gath

structions that they should follow in
the event of tbe military appearing in
the hall. He told them not to use their
revolvers until ordered by him so to do.

Topeka, Kan., Feb. 15.—At 6 o'clock
this morning two Republican guards
stationed in the corridor chanced to run
across Assistant State Auditor Maokey,
Populist, and arrested him on the charge
of having assaulted a Republican guard
during tbe morning scrimmage. He
was hustled into the hall ana after a
brief examination confined as a prisoner
in one of the closed rooms, under the
guard of tbe aasistant-sergeant-at

said he attempted to open the door

without farther provocation. The guard
says Mackey threatened him with a

Springfield, 111., Feb. 15.—The house
was thrown into an uproar for half an
hour today by a motion to suspend the
rules for the passage of a resolution
eulogizing Judge Gresham and congrat
ulating the country and Mr. Cleveland
on selecting him for secretary of state.
The Democrats opposed the considera
tion of the resolution, but the Republi
cans demanded the yeas and nays with a
view to embarrassing the Democrats by
forcing them into the position of with
holding their approval oi Cleveland's
action. The house refused, 56 to 66, to
suspend the rules.
GRESHAM'S HONOR DEFENDED.
Crown Point, Ind., Feb. 15.—As an
answer to the charge that Gresham is
guilty of political perfidy in acecepting
the portfolio of state under Cleveland,
Judge E. C. Field, a delegate to the Re
publican convention of 1888, who voted
for Gresham on every ballot, declares
him tbe truest friend and most cour
ageous where his convictions of right
and wrong are concerned he ever knew
and gives a bit of inside history of that
convention to prove it. He said a charge
was industriously made againt his loyalty
to the extreme tariff views then espoused
by his adversaries in the oonvention.
It was deemed expedient to have the
Chicago Inter-Ocean publish an editorial
Thursday morning of the first week of
the convention putting at rest all doubts
of the judge on this question. Accord
ingly the committee late at night laid
the matter before the editor, William
Perm Nixon, who proceeded to pen an
editorial on the lines indicated. As the
committee were about to depart, Nixon
"Of course you have seen the judge
and have obtained hia consent."
We aaid we had not, but would vouch
for hia approval of it. He aaid:
"That won't do. I gueaa you don't
know the judge very well."
60 the committee went to the Palmer
house, routed Judge Gresham from hia
slumbers and explained tbe matter to
him, assuring him that the publication
of the editorial with hia sanction wonld
insure hie nomination and election.
He etood before ua In hlti white robe,
the embodiment of pnrity. There was
a pause for a moment, and tbe judge
looked handsomer and braver than I
ever saw him, and then he said:
"I appreciate your friendship and the
good offices yon are performing in my
behalf, but, president or no president,
yon cannot publish that editorial by my
authority, because I do not believe in it.
It is better I should not be nominated
than commit myself to that doctrine."
The editorial was not published.

Chicago Kail way* doing; to Be Tied Up
Chicago, Feb. 15.—The Chicago rail
way managers have settled down to the
conviction that they are going to have
trouble with their switchmsn. They
are determined to resist to the bitter
end the demands which they are confi
dent will be presented within a
few days. At a meeting last
week the managers unanimously
agreed to allow no advances in the wages
of employees this year, and they say
they will adhere to that resolution re
gardless of the consequences. The
switchmen were in session here today,
and reports from St. Louis and other
points indicate that meetings are being
held simultaneously in different sec
tions. If the demands are refused, as
they certainly will be, there is
little doubt that a strike will follow.
One of the managers said this evening
that if they submitted to the demands
of the switchmen it would be but a
short time before other classes of em
ployees would come to the front with
similar demands. The companies can
not afford it, and rather than surrender
they will go out of business.

THE NEW CATARRH TREATMENT
Formulated From Years of Ex
perience by Dr. De Monco
It Acta Like a Charm— Mr. Henry
The $5 Rate far All Diseases Ex
tended Until March xst.
The great eharni of Dr. Da Monco and assocl
elates' new method of treatment is Ha mild and
soothing nature. It is ths palliative mbthod
as opposxo to ths HBKOic. It Is a process of
constant aad methodical cleansing, healing
and soothing the membranes, foul and irritated
by the poisonous catarrhal secretions, asa
wound mu»t be kept cUau from poisonous ac
cumulations, so must the membranes be kept
free from thew poisonous secretions. The
sprays and applications used in healing, sooth
ing and curing the affected parts by Dr, De
Monco and associates' aew mttbod are effect
ive, pleasant and occasion neither the slightest
pain nor discomfort. They relieve the nostrils
from their stopped-up and irritated condition,
cleanse the parts thoroughly, restore the
healthy action of the membranes, alleviate the
inflammation, and, with the aid of proper con
stitutional treatment, in good process of time
core the disease. The harsher methods of
treatment are done away with, and Dr. De
Monco and associates congratulate themselves
upon no one thin* more than upon the fact
that their new methods are painless as well a§
•scientific and effective.
The $5 per month rate not only ap
plies to the treatment of Catarrh,
both local and constitutional, bat to
all diseases as well.
MR- HENRY SCOTT,
A Retired Knslneas Man, Residing at
>".i Myrtle Avenue, lios Angeles,
<'*... in Conversation With the
"I have suffered with catarrh in its worst
form for fourteen years. At first it began with
ringing and roaring sounds in my head, with
partial deafness in both oars, and at times en
tirely deaf in left ear. My eyes ran a stream of
water; nose discharged freely. Great quanti
ties of mucous dropped into my throat, making
it very Bore. I had sharp, shooting pains In the
chest—they would dart through my body and
lodge under my shoulder blades.
"Gradually tho disease, which first affected
my head and throat, extended until my entire
system waß undermined. I suffered terrib y
with catarrh of the stomach and indigestion;
after eating my food laid Jike so much lead in
ray stomach. I couldn t eat anything without
feeling distressed. I came to this climate in
search of relief, and while I have improved in
some ways, catarrh has always been my main
trouble aud annoyance. I have spent a great
deal of time and money on doctors and patent
medicines for the treatment of this disease, bub
all to no avail,
"After oue month's treatment at the De
Monco Medical Institute I have been relieved
of all these annoying symptoms. I sleep well,
eat well, digest my food thoroughly, and no
longer have that distressed feeling in my
stomach. lv fact, lam practically a well man.
I would recommend any person suffering from
this disease not to hesitate to place their case
with Dr. De Monco and associates.
"I tell you, the local and constitutional
treatment these specialists administer gets
right at the seat of the disease. I felt better
from the ve/y first treatment. There's no use
talking, I've tried every patent medicine I ever
heard of, aud I wouldn't give the snap of my
finger for any of them, but there is no getting
urouud tbe local and constitutional treatment
of Dr. De Monco and associates. 1 never heard
or saw anything like it before. It acted like
a chaim in ray enso.
"Why, I would cot go back to the aches ancl
pains I have suffered from catarrh for five hun
dred dollars, let alone five dollars.
"As I told my son, who came here sometime
ago aud spent $150.00 with other doctors tor
the treatment of catarrh, I had received more
benefit from one month's treatment at the De
Monco Medical Institute for five dollars than
he did for one hundred and fifty dollars with
