Concord, N. II., Feb. 25. Nearly the
entire afternooon in the house yesterday
was occupied by United States Senator
Elect Gallinger, o( Concord, and II. V.
Green, of Hopkinton, in replying, under a
question of personal privilege, to the alle
gations made by United States Senator
Chandler, in an editorial in th- columns
of tin: paper, The Concord Mot itor, that
thce gnitlemen and other Republicans
h.ul entered into a series of bargains with
Hon. Frank Jones, Hon. C. A. Sinclaire,
and other influential Democrats, inimical
to the Republicans of the state. Each gen
tleman replied at length, deuyir g plainly
and uuequivocally every one of t tie allega
tions. Applied Kpiihets to Chandler.
Mr. Green at times became very ani
mated, and uuritg these periods lie applied
the epithets "cur," "coward," ar d "assas
sin of character" to Senator Chandler.
Mr. Gallinger appealed to Mr.' Sulloway,
of Manchester, to state whether Mr. Chan
dler's allegations were true, that he (Gal
linger) was responsible for tbo attacks
made upou him (Chandler) in the Repub
lican senatorial c.uicus of 18.SS. Sullownv,
who was then a member, said that Mr.
Gallinger was not responsible, and Sena
tor Chandler was an unmitigated liar.
Is It Malice or Mania f
misbury, of Derry (Rep.), oC'ered the
following: "Resolved. That this house has
, read with unmeasurable surprise in. the
columns of a newspaper of extensive cir
culation, whose chief owner is Hon. Will
iam JE. Chandler, senator of the United
States from this commonwealth, charges
of the most offensive character against
certain prominent members of this body
who have been especially honored
by us and by the people of the
state; charges which, if true, would in
flict a lasting disgrace upon this body, ir
respective of party, and leave a stain upon
the fair name of our state. We therefore
feel called upon to characterize the utter
ances of said paper of the 10th hist., above
referred to, as either the inventions of
malice or the maniacal ravings oi one
whose reason seems to be dethroned. 1c
is therefore the sense of this house that
Senator Chandler ought to tender to this
legislature either an apology or a full re
traction of the charges."
The Resolution Tabled.
Angell, Rep., of Derry said: "Before
this resolution is submitted I si oulil like
to know whether William E. Ctandler is
sick, insane, or diseased. I judge from
what has been said this afternoon that he
is insane, and if he is, why notice these
things?" On motion of Lyman of Exe
ter, the resolution was tabled. During
these extraordinary proceedings the gal
leries and lobbies of the houte were
thronged with spectators.

Springfield, Ills., Feb. 25. More flag

Authorizing corporations, not f ir profit,
to care for children abandoned,'
neglected, or subject to perverted
training; to tax telegraph companies
$1 per mile for a single wire, and CO
cents additional for each ottier wire
strung on the same pole. Ileadon moved
that the house hereafter meet at
i0:05. Dixon moved that the hour
be 11:30. The last failed for want
of a quorum. Then a motion to ad
journ was made and carried, and Speaker
Crafts declared the house adjourned to 10
a. m. to-day.
The "P.ig Three" Threatened.
The joint session was a farce. Only one
vote was cast Speaker Crafts, who voted
for Palmer. The trouble was that there
were several absentees, and nobody else
There was i good deal of excitement last

REPUBLICANS CAUGHT NAPPING.
Michigan Democrats Unseat Two Senators
and Get a Majority.
1.AK6INO, Mich., Feb. 25. The three In
dependent senators who were elscted last
tail have held the balance of povrer in the
senate all winter. Yesterday by an adroit
flank movement on the part of the Demo
crats, the three were toppled headlong
from their commanding positio i and the
Democrats have a clean majority. The
senate has had two contested election
cases on hand for some time, Domocratic
contestants laying claim to the seats of
Horton and Morse, both Republicans. The
committees held back their re;ort9 be
cause it was clearly understood that the
three Independents would not vcte to seat
the contestants, their votes being neces
sary. Lapsed in Their Tigilaneo.
Yesterday several Republican senators
attended the state convention as Jackson
and the Democrats seized the opportunity.
- The committee's reports unseating Hor
ton and Morse were . presented and
-adopted, and James H. Morrow and
Charles Fredlinoer were declared elected
in their places, thus grrios; the Democrats
a clear majority. All the Republican sen
ators have been wired to return at once,
and an attempt will be made to overthrow
Legislation In Wisconsin.

killed a bill providing for the punishment

icines. Assembly bills were passed au
thorizing the governor to fill vacancies by
appoiutmentwhen state oflices become va

THE COLUMBUS, O., TRAGEDY.
The Kvldenee All Against the Klllntt
CoLUMDL's. O , Feb. 25 The awful tra
gedy of Monday, in which W. 1. Hughes
and Al C. Osborne lost their lives and five
men were wounded, is the sole topic of
conversation ou the streets, in the hotel
lobbies, and in the saloons here. O-tborne
seemed to have a premonition of his im
pending fate. Monday morning he was
down towu, armed, and watchful. He
was also very nervous, and would start
and glance over hU hhoulder at any un
usual sound. A young man named J. W.
Lincoln, who was an intimate friend of
Al Osborne, says that the deceased had
momentarily expected death, and had
made a final disposition of his possessions.
uuiy last week lie had made his will, and
had spoken to this young man as to how
he wished his remains cared for. "For,"
said he, wheu reproved for bis levity, "I
expect trouble with the Elliotts if we
meet, though I cannot say just what
Arranged for His Funeral.
He ordered that this young man take
his body from the coroner, as soon as
through with it, and have it placed in
charge of Tom Doonan, the undertaker
who by the way Was Osborne's friend
and until a year ago foreman on The Cap
ital. He further desired that Lis bo ly be
taken to the home of his sister, Mrs.
Mason, and that later it lie given inter
ment at Reynoldsburg. This conversa
tion between Lincoln and Osborne took
place last week. They again met Monday
noon near Scbrader's saloon, just after
Osborne ha 1 been weighed on the scales
and measured. Lincoln addressed him as
follows: "Al, I guess we had lietter put
that casket, which we had received for
you, back in its place, for you don't seem
to need it." Osborne immediately an
swered: "Thi3 is straight goods and no
joking. The day is not over, and I may
need the coffin before night." With that
the two parted.
The KUIotts Did All the Killing.
At 10 o'clock a. m. yesterday the cor
oner, with Drs. Frank Warner, E. F. Wil
son and J. F. Baldwiu, began a post-mortem
examination upon the bodies of Ed
itor Osborne and Mr. Hughes. It was
shown that the bullet Osborne received in
the head was from the revolver used by
W. J. Elliott and the one through his
lungs from the revolver of his brother
Patrick. It was also shown that the bul
let which killed Mr. Hughes was from
W. J. Elliott's revolver. Clarence Reed,
a young man living near Elliott's home at
Arlington, says that Elliott was prac
ticing with his pistol Monday morning.
He saw him, he says, shooting at a target.
At the conclusion of the practice he got
into his buggy and drove toward the city.
Proof Before the Coroner.
At the coroner's inquest the testimony
was all against the Elliott brothers.
The witnesses swore that W. J. El
liott fired first upon Osborne, who
stood with his hands in his pockets less
than ten feet away, and that the first shot
took effect in Osborne's chin. It was fur
ther testified that W. J. Elliott took ref
uge behind a woman and fired over her
shoulder, and that at this juncture
Hughes dropped dead. Osborne in the
meantime retreated to the hat store, fol
lowed by Pat, where he received his death
wound in the heart. Ed Osborne, mayor
of Reynoldsburg, brother of the deceased,
has filed an affidavit against the Elliott
brothers, charging them with murder.and
will push tho prosecution.
The Monon Litigation.
Chicago, Feb. 25. The attorneys for

ceiver should not be appointed for the cor
poration if, as is alleged, the road is in an
insolvent condition. Judge Collins or

fendant could file a bill in answer.
