liurn',4 election was Impossible, and his
forces tried to tluow their strength to ex.
Congressman John l.lnd. -Mr. I.lnd, after
looking over tlio situation, refused to enter
tho light, and the Washburn supporters
concluded to vote, for tho senator to tho
last, although hopeless of electing him,
hoping1 to prolong tho light, nnd thereby
defeat Governor Nelson, to whom they
uttrlbuted Senator Washburn's defeat.
When tho two houses had ussembled and
woro oigunUed. the roll was called, and
Governor Knuto NeWon shown to have been
elected, lleforo tho announcement of tho
voto theru were several changes made by

led In New York.
lie warned Ids lio.it era nbovo nil things
to do no gunning with blank cartridges.
Ho went out, he said, with blank cart
ridges, but the grand Jury got after him
for his Hist sermon. He nlil:
".My next step was to (111 my cartrldgo
box. Tho grand Jury threw down the
gauntlet nnd 1 picked It up. I accumu
lated a few facts that I was not obliged to
write with quotation 111.11 ks. Having been
trodden down, sneered at, cursed, threat
ened for stating what 1 did not know ns of
my own knowledge, I would have entered
Into hell If need be to find facts to answer
tho challenge. I did go Into boll nnd I got
my facts; then I got out my little gun on
another Sunday and went Into my pulpit
with cartridges that were not blank cart
ridges and then they svvoie at me worso
for knowing what I was talking about,
than they hail the month before for not
knowing what I was talking about"
lie told nt somo length how he worked
up his evidence and closed this part of his
address by saying: "When finally the thing
had been pushed bo far that people be
gan to be ashamed of themselves and of
ench other, to live In a city that was gov
erned b a crew of banditti that would
bo a disgrace to Turkey, and a brood of

"A year ago or more I put detectives on
the track of orne of our police Justices,
studying up their history ns they make It
day by day, but more particularly night bv
night, and Supurlntendent flyrnes, or the
police force, got wind of It. It Is one of the
remarkable features of the gontlemnn's
administration, that while ho Is as Inno

Dr. I'aikhurst drew a hard picture of
the fortitude and endurance tieeessnry to

On being uucsttoned about tho probable
loss of life, Captain Conlou stated that ho
believed that no one was lost, but later
views with others differed, tho majority
being of the belief that at least thieo col.
orcd deck hands were drowned. Captain
Conlou and his men denounced the ex.
aggerateU reports sent to the newspapers
from the little towns down the river, and
in regard to this tho captain said;
"I was amused at two icportera for En

Itotlri'd from llnlj.
Itronklyn, N. Y., Jan. 23. There Is 11
greater public conlldemo In the maliib'
mince of public order to-day than 011 any
liny since tho strike roinhirmed The city
Is nlmtil free from the vngue ttrroilsm of
nameless dofds by inuhs which kept the
public mind nt a high tension nnd served
lo Increase the danger of serious lollislnns
nnd outbreaks. The mere iovvd.vHm which
Is looking for trouble nnd wants to de
stroy property from wantonness hns been
pretty well suppressed. It has been dem
onstrated to those chnr.ieters that the
mllilbi will shoot to kill, If necessaiy, to
suppress lavv lossness.
Another nbortlvo ittetnpt was made on
behalf of the slrlkeis to Induce the trolley
nlllclals to submit lo arbitration. The prop
osition which was submitted to President
Norton of the Atlantic avenue company
was flatly refused by him.
The refusal Indicates that tho compa
nies feel no uhattment of confidence that
they will win tho tight. The success which
tlio Atlantic nvenuo company has met
with In Its efforts to operate Its lines un
doubtedly had Its Influence upon Piesl
dent Not ton In Ibis matter That the
strikers made llin overture nfter having
been several timet repulsed In tlio paine
quarters muy bo regarded ns Indlrutlng
that they have Imt some confidence and
nre 1111x10111 for pence. Indeed, It Is al
leged that for thief days the highest hope
has been thnt ther might bo nble to ex
tort from the companies tho concession
that those who nbandoned their enra ten
days ago should be reinstated and that the
new hands brought here to take their
places be discharged.
When It was found that the linemen
wore nt work as uual repairing the dam
age during the night. Mnster Workman
Connelly denied that be had mderod the
men to strike. Later In the dny, after the
episode at Odd Fellows' ball, bo declared
again that the linemen were on strike and
would nil be out by morning Thio nro
no Indentions of the linemen quitting
work Tliev nre under contracts with the
rompnnles for from thirty to nlnotv days.
In Isolnteit cases crews have refused to
take orders to repair wires which have
been cut by the strikers or their friends.
As a class, they remain I05.1l to their om
ploers. The fact thnt the Thirteenth regiment
was tills evening retired from nctlve duty
Is believed to be Indicative of the beginning
of the end
The evening passed without sensational
incident of any kind. There was some
trouble feared at the Myrtle avenue car
shops, but up to midnight none had been
reported. The discovery that the wound
of Illchnrd Mitchell, who was shot lost
night, was caused by a 22-callher ball has
caused some doubt ns to whether ho was
shot bv one of the militia, ns they have no
wenpons of that caliber.
RIVAL ARBITRATION BILLS.
Tho Olney and Wright STensnrui I.lkely to
Cnuso a Lively IHmuhhIoii 111
Washington, Jnn. 23.There is likely to
be a most Interesting discussion In the
house committee on labor on the relative
merits of the two plans for aibltraiion, fur
which 1abor Commissioner Wiighl mil
Attorney General Gluey aro sponsors. Tho
two distinguished authors of the prlnclp.il
bills before the committee will speak, It Is
expected, In ndvoou y of their vbws It
they appear their cimches will doubtless
piove valuable to Hie literature of the
subject. Commissioner Wilght has a r. p
utatlon bevond tho limits of tlio 1 nlu.l
Stales na one of tli- foremost authorities
upon que-stions conioming the Inteiosts of
labor, while Attorn, y General olney Is a
high authority upon the legal principles
Involved In tlm movimtnt for arbltrition
There was a dlsroui iglng ileart'i of interest
In tho arbitration ipustlon for a time
among those who inllit naturally be ex
pected to load In tie' discussion, but tlio
past week has brum-ht to Chnlmnn Me
Gann, of tho labor mimlttee, manv com
munications, giving . wdeuce thnt the labor
unions aro awakening to the lmpoi tarn e
of tho matter. Som,' if the criticisms in.i
tho cumjkarlsons of tin two propis, I 1 y.s
101111 aio Interesting Fault Is found In
certain quarters Willi that featuie of At
torney General Oln.v's plan which would
glvo tho attorney r, nrnl power to apply
for a receiver who should manage a 1 all
road In tho Interests of the public wli'ii
thy employers nnd employes refuseil to sub
mit to nrbluallon disputes which threat
ened to Impair or did Injuriously affect tho
public Interests. Curiously enough tho cilt
Iclsm passed upon this .scheme Is that Its
tendencies nro soi lillstle and that It Is tho
longest stop vvlilib has been advocated
by high authority In tho illieetion of gov
ernment control of railroads.
An objection offered to Mr. Wright's plan
for a commission by somo laboring men
vv.w that a permanent sal.u led commission
might bet-onin allied to tho corporations In
Its sympathies. The Olney plan nukes tho
chairman of the Interst.ito commerce com
mission chairman of tho arbitration com
mission, whlln his colleagues nre appointed,
ono by tho employes nnd one by tho em
ployer. It la contended by ono of McOnnn'a
correspondents that two temporal y mem
bers might bo counted uimn to stand for
the Interests of their constituents, leaving
tho balance of power In tho hands of tho
chairman. It Is hardly prohablo 'hat tho
house will bo ablo to pass any arbitration
bill this session.
TRYING TO DEFER TRANSFER.
.lodge llroderlrlc Has Prepared 11 Vilmtituto
Hill for tho I.iai.'iiworth l'rioii
Washington, Jnn, 23 (Special,) It Is ex
pected that tho Item ll thu sundry civil bill
concerning tho Fort, Leavenworth mllllniy
prison, transferring It from tho war de
partment to the department of Justice will
be reached to-nioirov. Judge Hroderl' k
lias preinred a subst'tute that meets the
approval of Judgo Crosier, of Leavenworth,
who Is heio lighting the proposed change,
Tho subitltuto will requlra tho prison to
be left under tho control of tho department
of war; that It bo usut for tho same pur
poses to which It is a plied now and In ad
dition tho United Stales can keep ce-rtuln
classes of prisoners thiro sentenced by tho
United States courts, Ono hundred nnd
twenty-five thousand collars Is uppioprlat

under this arrangement.
The idea la to defer wtual transfer of the
prison from tho war department until thu

Judgo llroderick hrs been doing soma
