Sprixgfield. III., Jan. 30. The public
has been assured tonight that some time
towards the middle of next week the
deadlock will be broken and Palmer
elected, but a similar tale has been told
so eften thht no one places much confi
dence in the statement. The three F. M.

here for their tenacity in holding out, but
they claim they have as much right to hold
out as have ihe members of the other two
parties, The balloting has become so
monotonous that little attention Is paid to
roll call members chattiog, reading
newspapers or writing letters during the
time. Speaker Crafts and Lieutenant
Governor Ray looking the while as smil
ing as if tbey were attending aa amus'ng
dramatic performance. It is not expected
that much will be done until the matter
19 settled. Gen. Palmer looks contented
and confident and when he visits the
house his presence attrac's attention and
his language is as cheerful as if he had
alreidy obtained the votes of Moore and
Cockrell in addition to the 101 which he
daily receive. -Uncle" Dick sys a god
miny cuss words about one thing or an
other and by his anions shows that he is
aw&rs that he hasa't a ghost of a show.
The came of Gen. Black was mentioned
here today in connec'ion with the senate,
but no desertion of Palmer is likely to
take place until every hope has gone.

Vinton is paying strict attention o

western portion of the state, and has in
view o:her matters of importance. Noth

of the house from the Twenty firt dis
trict. Crawford of Rock Island has in
troduced some measures in the senate and
is acting as well as his political lights
will admit. Xothiug. of course, can be
done of a tangible nature until the speak

is not expected to be done until after a
Rock Island or Moline people have not
been numerous here since the session be

that the four wise men from the west
whom they have sent here are amply able
to look after their interests without their
presence, exposing themselves as tbey
would do to the ccntaaunaUun of politics.
