Kcpulillcnnn clnlin their leading rnmlltlnte,
Colonel Henry A, Dtipotit, wna legally
elected. The matter w 111 probably be taken
to the United State? senate for a ilecMon.
The 211th ballot since the deadlock beRan
four months ago, and the lint of the ses
sion, was taken a few minute? before 3
o'clock. It resulted: Henry A. Dupont,
Hepubllcan. 15: J, IMnant Addleks, llepub

Tunnel, Democrat, 1.
During the ilay the Democrats filibustered
with the object of undenting balloting,
and when the state home clock rang the
hour of 3 and sounded the death-knoll of
the legislative session o. 1S93, the cleric was

Governor Watson, Democrat, who, bv re
son of the fact that he was speaker of thJ

had previously been agreed upon bv the
Itepubllcan leaders. The Delaware Icgls

rniblle.uis claim when Watson, by virtue of
his position as speaker of the enutc, sue
ceedeil to the governorship, upon the death
of Governor .Mnrvll one month ngo, the
number of senators was reduced to eight,
and therefore there were only tvventv-nlne

On the other hand, the Democrats and
Governor Watson claim the law distinctly
declares the "speaker of the sennte" shall
become governor. Therefore, It .Mr. Wat
son withdraws from the senate, he ceases
to be "speaker of the senate." and conse
quently loses the governorship.
The senatorial question Is llkelv to occupy
n largo amount of public attention for
months to come. Whether the governor
has a right to appoint Is u disputed ques
tion. If he has, the appointment will ho only
until the next legislature, which meets In
January, 1VW, unless sooner called to
gether by the governor. This latter con
tingency Is not pioluhlc, however.
J. Hilwnnl Addleks has made good his
threat, uttered at the very beginning of the
contest, to prevent the election of n He
publlcan senator from Delaware If he could
not secure the prize for hlmselt.
Colonel Henry A. Dupont, who will make
the contest for the senatorshlp. Is a mem
ber of the famous Dupont famllv, who
have been manufacturers of powder and
other o.plolves in Wilmington, this state,
for over a century. He Is u son or the
late General Henry Dupont, and was born
nt Hr.indywlne Hanks In 1SJG. He attended
the University of Pennsylvania and was ap
pointed to the United States millt.irv acad
emy at West Point, graduating In 1801. Ho
entered the Fifth t'nltei' States artillery,
and served through the civil war. Colonel
Dupont has been a Hepubllcan ever slueo

DEATH FOR ANADULTERER,
Judge Thompson Silys It In it Deserved
l"nt nml Discharges Fulton Gordon,
Louisville, Kj' May 9. Tho city court
was crowded again to-day, when the caic
of Kulton Gordon, charged with the murder
of his wife and Archie Hronn, w.i called.
Arguments were promptly begun by Prose
cuting Attorney Thurman, who, nfler re
viewing the case at some length, endeav
ored to show the court that Gordon's crime
was nothing less than deliberate murder,
Mr, Thurman was followed by Attorney
Shields for the defense, who njked the dis
missal of the prisoner on the grounds of
Justification. Then Mr, Scott, who repre
sents Governor llrown In the prorcutlon,
nroe and began a vigorous arraignment of
Gordon, nml pictured In glowing rolots the
character nml qualities of Archie Hronn,
After nrgumeiits were completed and the
cae clos.d. Judge Thompson announced
that ho could not hold the prloncr, nnd
that ho would discharge hltn, as an object
lcon to other adulterers.
Never was a crowd more demonstrative
In Its appreciation th-vn was the immense
throng in the police court when Judge
Thnnip'oii announced In n. clear tone the
erdlct In the cae. Cheer after cheer went
up, nnd hand nfler hand was thrust out
to the Judge to show how much his ver
dict was nppreclntcd. There was evidently
not a soul In the court save tho attorneys
for tho prosecution, and perhaps some
friends of the dead man, but was pleased
with thrt ventlnt.
When the Judge had finished and hardly
' before the last word bad fallen from his
'lp, the cheering began, which continued
; fully twenty minutes; )n .iln did the
I bailiff elideavorer to restore order, but was
in m iiwiii, 111111 not until tne vast tnrong
had departed from the room vvn order re
stored, and even nfler reaching the streets
tho cheering was kept up,
In explanation, the Judge said that there
was no evidence of guilt on Gordon's prt,
but that the adulterer nnd ndultcros stood
on the verge of an abyss of ruin and
death, and that their rate was only what
cpuld be oxppcted. Thus ends the last
chapter to the most senatlonnl tragedy In
the history of Kentucky.
