HILL AND BDLKELY
Grim Visaged War Presents Its
THE DISPUTE TO BE MADE ACUTE.
A Scheme by Which the Two Executives
Will Exchange Tosltlons The Gut
ernor of New York to the Governor of
Conuerticnt Proceeding in the Illi
nois Assembly and Joint Session Mich
igan Democrats Nominate Lemcke
for I n i ted Mates Treasurer.
Daxbukt, Coun., Feb. 27. Steps have
already been taken by the officials here to
make application for requisition papers ;n
the case of John W. Colburt, charged
with stealing a $500 horse and carriage
from the barn of William Thompson
Tuesday night, and who was arrested st
Brewster, and now lies in the county jail
at CarmeL N Y. It is probable that req
usitiou will not be granted by Governor
Hill, as he refused to issue papers in tLe
case of Fardon, the Waterbnry burglar.
Iftbis istheca.se it is said that the pris
oner will undoubtedly be brought to
Connecticut without a requisition, and
the officer who brings him across the line
will rely upon Governor Bulkely to refuse
a requisition to have him (the officer)
taken back to New York state on tLe
charge of taking the prisoner from the
Hill's Reply to Ilurkely.
Albany, N. Y., Feb. 27. Governor Hill
was seen yesterday and asked whether he
preposed to reply to the letter sent him by
Governor Bulkely, of Connecticut, bearing
on the Fardon extradition matter. Gov
ernor Hill's reply was: "No, I shall take
no official notice of Governor Bulkely's
communication. Mr. Bulkely evidently
regards his usurpation of the office of gov
ernor as a joke. The face of the
returns in Connecticut shows that Judge
Morris has a clear majority over the other
candidates and was legally elected. He
has taken the oath of office, and is not
only governor de jure but governor de
facto. When requisition papers are pre
sented to me I am under the constitution
and the laws the sole judge of their suffi
ciency. Will Not R4ToRnlze a "Usurper."
"I could not consistently recognize a re
quest for extrat on signed by John Jones
governor of I'ennsylvania. and I can no
more consistently recognize such a request
signed by Morgan G. Bulkely, governor of
Connecticut, who has no more title to the
office of governor of Connecticut than
John Jones' has v that of governor of
I'ennsylvania. There is no disposition on
my part that New York shall be made a
place of refuge for Connecticut criminals,
but even that hardship will not compel
me to recognize a usurper."
They Indorse Governor Hill.
Hartfokd, Conn., Feb. 27. The follow
ing letter has been forwarded by the
Democratic managing committee in the
house to Governor Hill in recognition of
his action ignoring Governor Bulkely:
"Deab Sie: We, the members of the
committee appointed by the Democratic
side of the house of representatives to
gaard the interests of candidates for the
different state offices elected in November,
1330, hereby desire to express to you our
appreciation of your manly and Demo
cratic action in refusing to grant the re
quisition papers made upon you by ex
Governor Bulkely, now and for some time
past wrongfully exercising the franchise
o! governor of this state."
THE ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE.
Important Decision as to Business In
Speisgfield, Bis., Feb. 27. Bills intro
duced in the senate yesterday: Appropri
ating for the purchase of brick machines
for the southern penitentiary; requiring
the speaker of the bouse to announce the
standing committees within two weeks of
organization; to fix the rates of telephone
rental; taxing express companies 5
per cent. of their gross earnings.
In the house l letter was read
from the Kansas legislature inviting Illi
nois to join in calliug a commercial con
gress. Bills were introduced: Designating
the qualifications of public school teach
ers; to compel snloouiat to obtain the con
sent of a majority of voters before being
granted a license; giving women the right
to vote in all elections; providing for me
chanic's liens a bill indorsed by employ
ers and employes at Chicago; requesting
the speaker to announce the standing
committees within two weeks of organ
ization. The joint session took a few ballots,
only Democrats voting. Unless the F. M.
B. A. men change their plans there will
be no quorum until Senator Mathews gets
back. He is at present ill at home, and
will probably be absent a week. Senator
Fuller made the point of order that the
only businesss in order when there was no
quorum of each bouse voting was to
adjourn or order a call of the house. He
insisted thnt the two bodies were separate
bodies, acting together and under joint
rules. Speaker Crafts, who presided,
ruled that the session was a meeting of
members of both bouses, as members of
the legislature.and not as separate bodies,
and that a majority of the total membet
ship of both houses was a quorum.

The Late Indiana Treasurer Said To De
In Good Luck.
Evans viLLE.Ind., Feb. 27 "J. Alexander
Lemcke has been appointed United States
treasurer." Thii was the substance of a
confidential telegram received yesterday

urer bad not then expired. J. Alexander
Lemcke is one of the most popular and

police commissioner, and served two

ed btate treasurer, and re-elected in 1888.
He is now in New York placing a loan of
1 31)0,000 for the state.

ANNA DICKINSON'S AFFLICTION.
Suffering from Insomnia and Taken to a
Wilkesbarre, Pa, Feb. 27. The repot t
that Anna M. Dickinson had been removed
to the Danville insane asylum created a
sensation here yesterday. Miss Dickins. n
has resided with her sister Susan at West
Pittston for some time past. Of late hi r
health has been in a precarious
condition, and she has been un
der a doctor's care. Her mal
ady was insomnia. Though receiving the
best of care, no improvement in her condi
tion has been noted, and at a consulta
tion held Wednesday it was decided that
change of scene and absolute quiet was
the only hope that the lady bad for com
plete recovery. Accordingly she was re
moved quietly from her home yesterday,
but where she has been taken her friends
decline to say. They emphatically de
clare, . however, that she has not ln
taken to an asylum, and deny thnt her
mind has become unbalanced. IPs gen
