CoiXMHUS, O., Feb. 11. In the meeting
of the United Mine workers yesterday
there was an exciting discussion of a reso
lution reported from the resolution com

the organization accepting any public
office. This was aimed directly at John
Mcl'.ride, of Ohio, who was a candidate for
the presidency 'of the organization and

WAS A CASE OF MANIPULATION.
The Great tenre on the C'hleago Hoard of
Chicago, Feb. ll. Contrary to expecta
tions there was no recurrence of Tuesday's
flurry on the Board of Trade yesterday
morning. In anticipation of possible ex
citement the sjiectators' gallery was
packed, and for some time before the oien
ing hour the operators gathered in groups
aud commented upon the scare. There
was a genend consensus of opinion that
the miniatui e panic had nothing behind to
warrant it save the manipulation of cer
tain operatois who wanted to get under
cover, aud wire willing to avail themselves
of a rumor tl at the Hatch option bill was
likely to pass as a means to that end.
A lies'oratlon of Confidence.
There was on the whole a feeling of con

many's Host at Chicago Miscellaneous
Madison, Wis., Feb. 11. Arguments in
the Wisconsin gerrymander case were
completed yesterday by ex-Senator J. C
Spooner, and General E. S. Bragg. The
court took the case under advisement and
adjourned till Feb. U'i, when a decision is
expected that will settle the question of
jurisdiction and of the constitutionality of
the apportionment. If the Democratic
law is declared invalid the Democrats will
bring suit to nullify the last Republican
apportionment on the same grounds.
The Argument Spooner Made.
In the course of his argument cx-ftenatof
Spooner said that there is nothing in the
character of the office held by the secretary
of state or iu the duties the performance
of which the court is enjoined which puts
him beyond the reach of injunction, lie
declared that this injunction, if granted,
would not restrain an election nor the
giving and tiling of notices of election of
members of senate and assembly. It w ill
only restrain the giving of notices describ
ing the districts attempted to l)e created
by the act of last winter. If granted
notices could be given under valid unre
pealed laws or uuiler a new law, should
one be enacted.
Not a Political Power.
"There is no more st use," said Spooner,
"in calling the power of making an appor
tionment a political power because it af
fects quite directly political rights than
it would be in saying that an uct of the
legislature providing for a system of com
mon schools is an educational power, or
that the act providing for the protection of
the religious rights ami liberties of the
people is a religious power, or that the act
providing for the militia is a military pow
er. If the contention of the counsel for
the defense is right the legislature could
violate any of the limitations respecting
the apportionment, and the people have no
Argued Against Jurisdiction.
General Bragg concluded his argument
late in the afteruoon. All his remarks fol
lowing Spooner were devoted to showing
the court that it lacked jurisdiction to take
cognizance of the case, lie cited cases in
Alalmma, Rhode Island, Maine, aud Mas
sachusetts where substantially the sums
question is involved as here, and stated
that in each instance the court had refused
to assume jurisdiction, and in the case
from Massachusetts he announced that the
federal supreme court had affirmed tho
ruling of the lower court.
Some Illinois Politics.

Washington, Feb. 11. Before the house

arguments as others who have been re

bane of the grain and provision trade, and
that Chicago dealers were a great national
