Ex-Representative E. 8. Browne, of

run without much friction in the lower
branch of tbe assembly at least.
Itrmucratn in i'ontrnl.
For the first lime in many years tbe
democrats have organized a branch of the
genertl assembly of Illinois. Clayton E.
Crafts, as speaker, and a full set of dem
ocratic subordinate officers were elected
by A strict party vote democrats 77; re
publicans 7"' F. M. It. A. :t. Rumors
bad been actively circulated up to the
hour for organizing that the full demo
cratic strength couM not be polled fur
Crafts, and the republicans were sadly
disappointed to tWd that they had been
building castles of such an airy nature.
The three farmers asserted their Indepen
dence by voting as a unit.
The successful organisation of the
bouse by the democrats is of considerable
significance in connection with the sena
torial contest. It it indisputable proof
that Gen. Palmer will get every demo
cratlc vote on joint ballot, and most
probably thai of one or two of the F. M.
B. A.'s. Il is known that Dr. Moore has
strong preddections for Palmer,
and when bis v.Hr will elect tbe grand
old man, it is pretty certain In he forth
coming. Ami ' Ti Merrill has his eye
on Farmer CocWrell, w hich signifies that
there is good grounds for hope in that
quarter. On the other hand the republi
cans seem hopelessly at sea as to whom
tbey shall support for the senate, so the
chances of Oen. Palmer's election to the
senate grow brighter as tbe time draws
near for a ballot.

Lincoln, Xeb., Jan. 8. The jolntsession
if the legislature for the purpose of open
ing, canvassing, and publishing the re
turns of the late election waa held yester
3ay, and for the greater part of tbe time
the w ildest anarchy reigned. The Alli
ance members had a clear majority, but
the Democrats mid Republicans were not
n illing to lay down their bands quietly,
and a fight was made. The afternoon was
pent in wrangling, and nothing was ac
complished, tbe Republican and Demo
?ratic members being able to keep the Al
liance members from bringing the contest
?nses up in the canvass of tbe returns. The
joint convention adjonrued last evening
with the light still unsettled.
Nail the Law at His Bark.
The attempt to choose committees of
three in the bouse, and senate to canvass
the vote was defeated in the morning by
the president of the senate, who quoted
the constitution that the election of ofti
rers of the executive department shall be
ehled up anil delivered to the secretary of
state and directed to the speaker of the
house, and ftttened in the presence of both
houses, and tbe one receiving the highest
number of votes shall be declared elected.
The Prohibitionists and Independent at
torneys were lobbying hard duriin the
sutire. session to unseat Hoyd, the Domo
jratic governor-elect, and this waa a
tcnock ilon-n for them.
A Struggle for the Chair.
The tlrxt lilt in tbe afternoon was be
tween Lieutenant IJoveruor Meiklejohn
mil SH-nker Elder as to who should pre
side over the joint convention. By reason
jf his greater experience and better knowl
edge of parliamentary law, Meiklejohn
was able to take the reins of tbe conven
tion and keep them in spite of the protests
of a ma jorit y. At times during the after
oou tbe wilih-U confusion prevailed, and
s dozen members were excitedly talking at
the same lime, tiovernor Thayer had taken
the precaution to station a couple of com
panies 1 f state militia in the basement for
use in cHse tbey had lieeu found ueeea

Both bodies hail met in the house cham

bies were crowded to sutTix-ation w hen
Lieutenant lioveriior Meiklejohn rapped
for order, lie uunounced that the count
would proceed, mid requested Speaker El
der to oeii the sealed returns. An Alii
anee inemlier moved that it tie the wnse
of the joint assembly that tbe sjieaker of
the house preside. This was declared out
of order, the lieutenant governor holding
that he was. under the constitution, the
proper pre-iiliio; officer until after his suc
cessor bad qualilied.
Meiklejuhll Not To Be Bulldosed.
Then the hubbub begau. Kifty Alliance
memtiers were ou their feet with points of
order and excitedly calling upon Sfieaker
Elder to exercise what they claimed was
his right. This he attempted to do, but
Meiklejohn held his ground and the spec
tacle was presented of two presid
ing officers with widely differ
-nt views. Thus the uproar con
tinued until nearly 7 o'clock, when a com
promise resolution was adopted providing
that the election returns be remanded to
the secretary of state and tbat a recess be
taken for the day.

from the Senate Debate Tbe Old Sys

Perpetuated, but Koyer to Oet the
Ronnre Hllver Brick Men Again Re
pulsed Official News Items.
Washisgtox City, Jan. a -The debate
In the senate yesterday on the silver ques
tion was very uninteresting, aa A general
thing. All the old arguments pro and
con were made to do duty again, and few
new points were evolved from the braina
of the senators. Daniel took the oppor
tunity of quoting a prediction made by
Ingalls aome yean ago. In referring to
Morrill's prophecy Tuesday of a very brief
honeymoon between senators from the sil
ver states and Democratic senators, Dan
iel aaid that it length ot coirrtship was
any security foribe happioessof marriage,
the union which took place Monday waa
ode that had been preceded by as long A
eonrtship as in the famous scriptural in
stance of J aeob and Rachel. Twelve years
fn the senator from Kansas (Ingalls) had
rophesied that the day was not Ut dis
tant when the community of interest be
tween tbe agricultural and producing sec
tions of the south and west would bring
into harmonious relations those great por
tions of the country in self defense of their
interests and for the promotion ot their
general welfare against the aggressions of
And Mere Von Are, Mr. Install.
And now the senator from Kansas (In
galls) witnessed what he had predicted
twelve years ago the drawing together ot
men by tbat moat stable and permanent
tie, the tie of conviction and oppatriotiara.
There never had been a vote cast in the
senate which more thoroughly represented
the temper of the public mind and the
majority of the suffrages of the people
than that vote in which the senate de
clared that it would proceed to the consid
eration of the financial measure.
In criticism of Sherman's speech of Mon
day, Daniel said that if be were at
tempting to make a syllabus of it, be
would state tbe condensed analysis of it
somewhat thus: First I am opposed to
the free coinage of silver, because it will
inflate the currency. Second I am op
posed to the free coinage of silver because
it will contract the currency."
Other I'olnts from the Debate.
Daniel said that more silver meant more
gold, anil in proof of this cited the fact
that there whs more gold iu ihe country
now than when the Wand bill wan panned.
He also quoted Thurlow Weed aa holding
that when the national debt wan created
the cheapness of silver was anticipated aa
an easy means of redeeming the bonds, as
it was known then that new mines were
being rapidlv developed. I'lnmb devoted
hisHpeech to a demonstration that finan
cial legislation had never disturbed tbe
equity of contracts, "certainly not in favor
of the debtor," and tbat such legislation
bal never contributed to an unsafe condi
tion of things. The last silver act I id
prevented a universal panic. A good deal
of capital was made of the failure ot the
predictions of disaster if the Bland bill
passed, made by Sherman and others.
Opposition to the R.tnd Hcheme.
The silver senators were opposed to the
whole bill, and especially to the bond por
tion, which they said would increase tbe
national debt. They held t hat free coinage
would make silver equal to gold, a conten
tion which waa controverted by Hiscock
and Frye, but in this phase of the deltate
nothing but old straw waa threshed on
. The Talk in the House.
The same state of affairs existed in the
house in the debate on tbe shipping sub
sidy bill. Tbe Democrats insisted tbat
American shipping could not be restored
wit bout a decrease in tbe tariff and ship
ping taxes, tbe Republicans that what had
built up the merchant marine of Kugland
aud France would also build up ours.
INDIAN BUREAU STILL ON DECK.
The Only Chsna-e Will Be tbe Removal of
A rent Boyer.
Washington City, Jan. 8. The pub
lished statement that all tbe Sioux Indian
agents are to be supplanted by army offi
cers is denied at the interior and war de
partments. There will be a change made

It is understood that the president will
make tbe removal at once, and Capt.
Pierce, an army officer of much experience
in Indian agency matters, will be detailed
to take temporary charge ot tbe agency

be under the control of the secretary of tbe
interior and the commissioner of Indian
affairs like any oilier Indian agent, and
will have no more authority than any

Washington City, Jan. 8. Three or

that a personal investigation be made by
the ortirersof tbe department into the

on good authority that Senator Cullom

BLAINE'S CONTENTION CRITICIZED.
A Canadian Rtaletman's Heply ta the
Behring Hea Letter.
Otta w ,"Ont., Jan. 8. Sir John Thomp
son, mints ter ot justice, in an interview
on the subject ot Secretary Illaiue'a reply
to Lord Salisberry, says that in the cane
ot the Ceylon pearl fisheries, which
Blaine cites, the jurisdiction exercised by
England is simply to prohibit injurious
operations to tboss fisheries by airitish
subjects. No attempt has been made to
exclude foreigners from the pearl fisheries,
or to restrain t heiroperations. Regarding
Blaiue's contention as to St. Ut-lena, the
minister of justice says that it will he for
Blaine to enforce this contention in the
face of the fact that Dwight Foster, who
rond ui-ted the rase for the United Stales
before the Halifax commission, made it as
a strong point that tlie pretensions of all
maritime countries at that time could not
be cited at the present day an defining the
bounds of international law an regards'
Fart About . Helens.
Continuing, Sir John said that in 110
Napoleon wascoufiued at St. Helena, and
tirrat Britain's action in ex. lnding vessels
from waters within eight leagues of St.
Helena was a measure of wsr. taken in
concert with the great allied powers, who
alone would be interested in resisting a
cession of dominion. Great Britain hail
been for years asserting sovereignty over
all seas surrounding British i-lands, and
she had claimed, with the ariiiec-ence of
both France ami Suain. all tlie bank ILsli
iries within sixty miles nf th" t-oat of
Newfoundland aid the whole Ou If of St
Lawrence, not one of w bird claims) would
tbe United States admit now.
Aallshury'e Proposals the Broadest.
On bring asked what he thought nf tbe
quest inns w hich Blaine desires to submit
to arbitration. Sir John replied: "They are
all lu voiced m the reference w hich Ird
Salisbury proposed: What were the riirhts
exercised by Russia in Behring sea? How
far were they conceded by lireat Britain?
Waa Bebring sea included in the Pacific
