Special to New York Times
Washington, Jan. 19. The Repub

it was yesterday, and the Senate leaders
to-nignt Know tnat tney are m io
worst box of their lives. The Presl-
rfnnt and tho npnwrats have ?ot them
in a corner and are squeezing them
against the wall.
To-day the leaders, while not aban

The President does not favor any
resolution which will be satisfactory
to the Republican leaders "who have
been against him on corporation ques-
tions, and who would now wrest con-
lc its old affiliations."
He is thoroughly disgusted, not only
with his Republics enemies, but with

of his who have not the nerve to take

This could not be found unless one

A crazy man named Alfred Womack

of the man who came to the lockup
to make Inquiries about him, said
that although the man is out of his
mind, he is harmless. She also stated
that he frequently runs away from
his home at Chorry Valley and comes
to town. The niece will see that b.5
is sent to his home,
