All the State Troops Gone to
A Populist Chaplain's Sensational
Rumored Attempts to Assassinate the
Populist Oorernnr— The Republi
can House Reoognlxed by
the District Court.
By the Associated Press.]
Topeka, Kan., Feb. 18.—Peace pre
vails. At 10 o'clock this morning the
last of the troopa called here departed,
and the last vestige of grim-vieagjsd war
disappeared with them.
A large party of Populistß from
Lawrence tried to steal a march on tbe
Republicans last night by seeking tr
enter representative hall, bat the Re
publicans had taken the precaution to
leave the hall in the hands of an armed
guard, and the invaders were driven
away. The action was taken without
the sanction of the governor or Populist
A sensational tbayer,
Tbe Populist chaplain of tbe senate at
the opening of tbe session this morning
caused a sensation by his prayer, which
was us follows: "May God have mercy
on thiß treason-infested state. Amen I"
The Republican house met this morn
ing, transacted considerable routine
business, and adjourned till this after
a startling rumor.
The startling rumor was circulated
freely this afternoon that an attempt
wka to be made to assassinate Governor
Llewellins. A telephone message re
ceived at the sheriff's oflice to the effect
that his presence was desired at the cap
itol to protect the governor's life
strengthened the force of the rumor.
Sheriff Wilkenaon at once went to tho
capitol to investigate. He found tho
governor's office surrounded by guards
and the corridors filled with excited
Populists. Alter much inquiry he
finally located the man who was said to
be the would-be assassin, and who
proved to be a half-witted man from
Cherokee county. After the sheriff as
certained the facts he put tbe man out
of tho building, disarmed him and told
rrnn togo rmjis. ma man eouid not
give his name. The sheriff did not con
sider the case serious enough to warrant
the man's arrest.
REPUBLICAN HOUSE SUSTAINED.
The district couit this morning sus
tained the motion of the Republican
house for a permanent injunction res
training the state treasurer from paying
warrants issued by anthority of the
legislative appropriation bill passed by
the Populist house. This is virtually a
recognition of the constitutionality of
the Republican house, and the membera
are correspondingly jubilant. The at
torney general haß filed a notice of ap
peal to the supreme conrt.
A majority of the Populiat members
had alreadydrawn the money coming to
them before tbe decision waa rendered.
In all some $20,000 has been paid out by
the treasurer. The question is, if the
decision holds, whether the treasurer
will have to make the amount good.
ANOTHER TEST CASE.
Early in the month the Republican
house summoned L. C. Gunn, Democrat,
of La Bette county, to appear and testify
in a contested election caae. He re
fused, and the sergeant-at-arms arrested
him and brought him here. He applied
for a writ of habeas corpus to the su
preme couft, alleging that tbe Republi
can house was not legal, thus bringing
tbe question to a direct issue. His mo
tion was beard this morning. The Pop
uliat attorney-general asked the court to
dismiss the case, on the ground that it
waß collusive and arranged in advance
between the Republican house and
Gunn. Finally, on motion of the attor
ney-general, the hearing was postponed
MILITIA OFFICERS SUSPENDED.

Vengeance Wreaked on a Negro for In
sulting a Young Lady.
Mobebly, Mo., Feb. 18.—Yeaterday
afternoon John Hughes, a negro, made
insulting advances to a young lady on
the street. He was quickly arrested
and hustled into the lockup. About 10
o'clock thia morning, while the atten
tion of the guard was diverted, three
unknown men, but supposed to be
brothers of the young lady, entered the
cell room and literally showered bullets
at the negro. He is not dead but will
probably die. Tbe girl's brothers have
been arrested. Hughes waa studying
for the ministry.
M. DE LESSEPS' MONEY.
WAS IX USED TO-CORRUPT AMERI-
A Mystorloua Chango in the Sentiment
of the Hayes Administration on
the Subject of the Mon
Washington, Feb. 18. —In the Pana
ma investigation today, J. Floyd King,
an ex-member of congress from Louis
iana, testified that while a member he
assisted at an investigation on the sub
ject of the canal and frequently saw the
late President Hayes on the subject,
iHa ia-. Hayes wa--. strongly opposed to
French control of the canal, and he eu
logized Hayes as a man of the highest
honor and integrity.
King testified that Hayes' adminis
tration was strongly in favor of uphold
ing the Monroe doctrine and hostile to
the French company. Secretary of the
Navy Thompson waß strongly opposed
to the French company and vehement
in his expression that the Monroe doc
trine ehould be asserted against the
Panama Canal company.
Mr. Geary—What then did you think
of the retirement of Secretary Thompson
to become a representative of the Pana
ma Canal company ?
King—l thought it most unpreced
ented action. I had not the slightest
premonition he was going to resign.
Mr. Geary asked without receiving any
very definite response a number of ques
tions as to whether or not at the time
the canal matters were under discussion
there was not a good deal of talk about
the use of improper means to influence
King replied that a painful fact to his
mind was that after De Leesepa' visit
there was a lack of any feeling regard
ing the assertion of the Monroe
doctrine. Tbe atmosphere sug
gested that public sentiment had
mysteriously changed concerning
the Panama company. "I know of no
improper menus used to change the
sentiment, and cannot recall any cir
cumstances, save that one lady, now
dead, aaid to me in badinage, as I took
it, something about 'Better get Borne of
De Leaseps' money.' I turned it off and
it passed as a joke, and perhaps she
meant it as auch. That is the only time
any improper speech about such matters
was made in my hearing. I think it
was immediately after De Lesseps waß

Washington, Feb. 18.—Senator Stew
art today submitted an exhaustive re
port from the senate committee on
mines and mining, relative to the cost
of the production of gold and eilver. The
conclusions drawn are that the cost of
production of silver and gold are about
equal to the established ratio, 25 8-10
grains of gold to 412'n grains of silver,
and in both casea the cost of produc

Mitchell Accepts Corbett's Conditions
and Agrees to Meet Manager
Brady In Canada to
By the Associated Press.
New York, Feb. 18.— Superintendent
Byrnes says he will not permit any fur
ther progress of the preparations for the
Corbett-Mitchell fight in this city, and
threatens to arrest all concerned if any
further attempt is made here to con
summate battle arrangements.
MITCHELL FEIONS INDIFFERENCE.
Charlie Mitchell did not reach his
bed until early this morning. At noon
he sent word to an inquirer that he had
no engagement to meet Corbett's repre
sentatives today, and he did not know
when he would meet them. He intimat
ed that he did not care.
Corbett's manager, Brady, said this
afternoon, regarding tbe proposed
match: "I exceeded my authority aa
manager when I offered $2500 out of the
purse for the loser. Corbett wants the
winner to take all. I'll consent to pay
$2500 to the loser, but not a cent more.
I don't think Mitchell wants to fight
and I am of the opinion that the match
will fall through."
A BOMBSHELL AMONG THE BPORTS.
Superintendent Byrnes' action forbid
ding match negotiations was a perfect
bombshell among the sports. The
World building, the appointed place for
negotiations, was surrounded by an im
mense crowd, which even pressed into
the lower corridors. None of the prin
cipals appeared. Brady was warned of
the proposed action of the police while
Superintendent Byrnes had tbe World
building surrounded and two officers
made known his mission. It is thought
the principals in the arrangements will
try to meet at some other place near
New York. Brady communicated with
Mitchell, and an arrangement was made
for a meeting tonight.
BRADY MAD AND DISGUSTED.
Late in the afternoon Brady waß
found, wrathful and disgusted. He ex
pressed hia opinion of the Englishman
freely as a big bluffer and fake fighter.
Brady added that if Mitchell did not
agree to tbe terms this evening all ne
gotiations would be declared off and
arrangements for a match between Cor
bett aud Jackson proceeded with.
A MATCH ARRANGED.
Charley Mitchell has conceded all the
conditions demanded by Corbett, and a
fight between the two men is now as
sured. The two parties met this even
ing in the office of the Dramatic Journal.
Mitchell was accompanied by Squire
Abington, Baird, Baker, Abrahams, an
English lawyer, and Secretary Bailey;
Brady and Billy Delaney represented
Corbett. BillyJladden was present.
After very liltle preliminary discus
sion Mitchell announced that he was
willing to concede that the winner
should have all the stakes. The state
ment was greeted with profound satis
faction, as it disposed of the only objec
tion in tbe way of the fight. Mitchell
went on to say that as Corbett seemed
determined to wiu or lose everything,
he (Mitchell) would not let it stand in
the way of a match being arranged. He
intimated that he thought Corbett was
obstinate only to make it apoear that
he (Mitchell) did not want to fight.
articles not signed yet.
Superintendent Byrnea'e action was
discussed and it was decided, as a safe
guard, not to sign articles at present
and withdraw the money held by Dick

An agreement waß then drawn up that
the representatives of each party ehould
meet on Saturday, February 25tb at 9 p.
in., on the Canadian side of the Niagara
falls and there deposit the stakes and
sign articles. Mitchell and Brady affixed
their signatures to the agreement. It
was understood that tbe arrangements
as made on Friday in reference to the
fight, should be considered ac binding.
There wae some talk of increasing the
size of the stakes. Mitchell said he waa
perfectly willing to make the atakes $25,
--000 each if Corbett would so agree.

ArchbUhop Kendrick Dying.
St. Louis, Feb. 19. —The illness of

He is confined to his bed, and for the
major part of the time bis mind, it Is

New York, Feb. 18.— J. Sterling Mor
ton of Nebraska, who haa accepted the
office of secretary of agriculture in Cleve
land's cabinet, in an interview today
"I am opposed to the Hatch anti
option bill. What the farmers of thll
country moat need ia protection from
their alleged frienda. The farmers need
a change in some of their ideas and thej
would be materially benefited by a certain
kind of education. It ia generally Said
and believed that the farmers were the
instigators and supporters of the Hatch
anti-option bill. In my opinion they
should be its moat vigorous opponent!.
The produce exchanges and board of
trade, which this bill ie intended to de
stroy, are of the greatest advantage to
producers of grain.
"I am and alwaya have been a hard
money man," eaid the next secretary
of agricultnre. "I waa opposed
to tbe nnredeemable greenback issue
and have been oppoaed to every measure

WALL BTREET VISITED BT A FI
Millions Romp Tip and Down the Ladder
of Prlees—Reading: Securities
the Center of the
New York, Feb. 18,—There waa a
wild whirl of fortunes in Wall Btreet
today. Millions romped up and down
the ladder of prices and tonight there
are sad pockets in town, some, too, that
are cheerful. Reading was the core of
the ft >rm center and a blizzard of danc
ing ouctationa swirlod about It. There
were only two hours of it, from 10
o'clock until noon, but in that time
693,000 shares of stock changed bands.
Of this great total, Reading unwound
over half a million shares. It was as
serted today on the board that there
was a decline of 6 per cent yesterday
due to calling for more margin on loans
by the Mercantile Trust company. The
pool was apparently unable to respond
and the collateral, consisting in a great
part of Reading stocks and bonds, waa
said to have been sold ont through
Grant Brothers. This was understood
to have marked a collapse in the con
trolling interest in the Reading and to
be the end of the present management.
Philadelphia, Feb. 18. —A. prominent
financier who conferred with President
Mel.sod today said: "Reading is per
fectly sound. If I had $5,000,000 I would
not hesitate in loaning it to the com
pany. The break waß caused by a sud
den and imperative demand npon a
heavy creditor for $200,000."
At the office of tbe Reading company
it is stated there is nothing in the con
dition of the company's affairs to war
rant the decline of the stock. None of
the rumors current, it was declared, have
any foundation, and the company's
finances are sound and its relations har
monious. The withdrawal of tbe pay
cars yesterday, it waß further said, waa
due to the fact that errors and confusions
had occurred in making up the accounts,
and the cars will go out Monday with
tbe pay for the employees.
