Unique Revel of Citizens
Facial Dispatch to The Call.
WARDNER. Idaho. Dec. The elite
of society of this camp held high rev
elry last night in the morgue of Under
taker Wolborn. who gave one of the most
unique functions ever pulled off in this
part of the country. Coffins for seats,
embalming fluid cans for coffee, and sand
wiches served on silver coffin plates were
some of the grenwme features of the
evening, which passed off in a whirl of
dances, music and gayety. In spite of the
chilling surroundings. The room smelled
of cotlln varnish. All around were recep
tacles for the dead. Wore they all empty?
Undertaker Wolborn did not say.
When the tired dancers sought a mo
ment's rest coffins were pulled out and
the ladles sat upon them, while the gen
tlemen fanned the flushed cheeks with
hymn books. When the music started
again the deathboxe were shoved back
against the wall and the waltz would be
gin with us much happiness in evideneo
n? if the surroundings had been less sug
gestive of the tomb.
The supper was served at the ghostly
hour of midnight. The guests sat around
the room on caskets, while waiters with
pallbearers' badges and black apron*
served coffee from a nice new embalming
fluid ran anil passed sandwiches on a silver
casket plate. Thirty couples attended the
dance and participated In the coffin sup
per. Mining superintendents, merchants,

ladies of the riir.n were In attendance.

PITTSBURG, Dec. 23.— Whether there
will be an extra session of the Pennsyl
vania State Legislature called to elect a
successor to Matthew S. Quay depends
entirely upon the United States Senate
regarding the seating of Quay on the cer
tificate of Governor William A. Stone,
who appointed him. Former Senator Quay-
Is at his home In Beaver, near here, He
was expected In Pittsburg to-day to con
fer with his lieutenants regarding the
selection of candidates for the new Legis
lature. He Is figuring now whether It
would be better to allow the matter to
go before an extra session of the present
body or take chance^ on the new Legis
lature, which will organize in January,
It Is the general opinion In this State
that the United States Senate will refuse
to seat Mr. Quay and that an extra ses
sion of the Legislature will be called by
Governor Stone Just as soon as Mr. Quay
gives the word. Mr. Quay concedes that
if an extra session of the present Legis
lature is called he cannot be elected a.a
he Is no stronger now than he was be
fore the body adjourned.
It is his Intention, therefore. It Is said
by persons or. the inside, to withdraw
and put forward a candidate that will
be agreeable to him. Who this candidate
will be Is not known. No matter who
he may be if he is a State machine man

against him and It is doubtful If he can
It is believed that Mr. Quay, with his
superior political sagacity and knowledge,
would not think of Roinß before either

TROOPS FOR ALASKA.
One or More Additional Posts Likely
to B? Established.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 23— At the Cab
j met meeting to-day much of the time
was occupied by Secretary Wilson In d:-
cusslni? th* agricultural possibilities of
L Alaska. It may he decided to Increase
the number of troops In Alaska, on the
trround that the constantly Increasing
population demands additional protection.
Reports reaching the Oovernment Indicate
that the rush next year to Alaska, es
pecially to Cape Nome, will be large and
that more troops probably will be re
| quired. It Is likely one or more additional
I posts will be established, one doubtless at
: Cape Nome, hut none of the details have
yet been worked out.
