Lansing, Mich., An jr. 6. Promptly at
Boon yesterday the legislature convened in
special session for the purpose of reappor
tioning the state into legislative and sena
torial districts. Governor Winans, before
joint convention of the senate and
house, read his message, in which he rec
ommended the passage of just apportion
ment laws with all possible celerity. Soon
After the house adjourned until this morn
ing. The contest for party supremacy is
being made in the senate, where the par
ties are more evenly divided.
KepnbUcans Fight for Time.
No sooner had the lieutenant governor
called tkat body to order than it became
apparent that every artifice known to par
liamentary bodies wonld be adopted by
the Republican side to prolong the session
until after next Tuesday, when the appor
tionment laws must be given immediate
effect in order for them to become opera
tive for the coming election. In this they
succeeded o well that up to 10 p. m.
no progress had been made by the senate
toward the consummation of the work in
hand. A conference committee composed
of six Democratic senators and five Re
publicans was constituted.
Prospect for a Fair Law.
To this committee was referred the work
of preparing a fair and politically impar
tial bill to be brought before the senate.
Several hours was spent in conference, but J

STEVENSON AT FRANKFORT.
Warmly Received by the People and
Frankfort. Ky., Aug. 6 Kentucky's
capital was gay with fluttering flag and
the bright costumes of pretty girls which
were liberally scattered through the crowd
which greeted Hon. Adlai Stevenson on
arrival of the train yesterday. Old-time
Democrats who had not seen a vice presi
dential candidate since John C. Brecken
ridge came in from the back woods dis
tricts ami mingled their chet-rs with those
of the Blue Grass aristocracy. A commit
tee of citizens and members of the legisla
ture awaited the state's guest, and when
he arrived he was escorted to a carriage
and followed by a procession of carriages
containing prominent citizens conveyed
to the state house.
Stevenson entered the capitol arm in
arm with Judge William Lindsay. There
was an enthusiastic cheer as the party en
tered. Judge Lindsay presented the dis
tinguished visiturto President Alford.who
occupied the chair, and the two houses of
the general assembly and the citizens as
sembled, as General Adlai C Stevenson, a
native of Kentucky. Alford responded in
well chosen, words, and then introduced
General Stevenson, who addressed the au
dience. His speech was a non-political
Gave them a Brief Talk.
It dealt mainly with his relations to
Kentucky and Kentuckians and the close
kinship of Kentucky and Illinois. It was
delivered in a pleasant conversational tone
with little attempt at oratory and in the
spirit of one who was talking to friends
and dealing in reminiscences. The talk
was brief, but was much enjoyed. Last
night General Stevenson held a reception
at the residence of ex-Governor Proctor
Knott and today returned to his home at
M'KINLEY SPEAKS AT OMAHA.

Omaha, Aug. 6 At noon yesterday at
the Millard hotel, according to invitation,
Governor McKinley met the members of
the Ohio club of this city, ami indeed all
Ohio people whether members of the club
or not. Several hundred called to pay
their respects. One of the first to shake
bands with him was General Cowin, who
for three years in war time was a member
of WtKinley's regiment. Last night Gov
ernor McKinley was the center of a mam
moth Kepublican demonstration. The
meeting was held in the high school
grounds and it is estimated that 20,000
people attended, and they were very en
thusiastic. A Practical Illustration.
The governor discussed the methods of
taxation and tariff proposed by the Ke
publican and Democratic parties. . Ue ad

Governor MiKinley said: "We were beaten
two years ago by false pretences.'' a voice
shouted "Absolute lying." The speaker
retorted: "Th.it kind of language wouldn't
be parliamentary for me." The governor
was loudly cheered all through his speech.
At 10 a. m. tuday he left for Denver.
The President Saves Nebraska.
Washington, Aug. 6. According to
custom at the close of a congress session
the president went to the Capitol last
night and stayed until adjournment sign
ing bills etc The last bill signed

Senators Pandock and Sanders told the
president he had saved the state by sign
ing this bill.
Cronnse for Governor.
Lincoln, Xeb., Aug. 6. The struggle in
the Kepublican state convention over a
nominee for governor came to nn end ves
tsrday morning on the first ballot, Crounse
receiving 446 votes. Rev. J. G. Tate was
chosen for lieutenant governor, John C.
Allen renominated for secretary of state,

ceived from Crounse, who is assistant sec
retary of the treasury at Washington,
thanking the convention for the honor
and assuring the Republicans that he
would do everything possible for success.
He will resiga Sept. 1 and enter the can

Harrlty to Tackle Non-Vnlon Papers.
New York, Aug. 6. Chairman Will

take up the grievances of the union print

Rociikster, X. Y., Aug. 6. Judge Ram

FRICK AT WORK AGAIN.
Carnegie's Manager at His Office A
Pittsbchg, Aug. 6. H. C. Frick has so
far recovered as to be able to be at his
office, where he arrived shortly after 10
o'clock yesterday morning, and went to
work as if nothing had happened to him.
His recovery is considered a remarkable
one, in view of its rapidity and the nature
of his wounds. The story that the men at
Studebaker's wagon works at South Bend,
Ind , had struck is false and its origin a
Captured Eleven Rioters.
Eleven of the men who were engaged in
the riot at Duquesne Thursday were ar
rested yesterday, hand-cuffed in pairs and
brought to this city, where they were
jailed. They will probably be bailed to
day. There are other warrants out, but
the strikers are keeping shady. There is
no change in the situation either at Home
stead or Duquesne. The strikers are con
fident and so are the managers. Plenty of
aid has been promised the strikers.
Old Time Iloings in Homestead.
Homestead, Pa., Aug. 6. Ralph Get
ty, sub-agent for the Keystone employ
ment agency, Pittsburg, came to Home
stead yesterday morning. On his arrival
a number of locked-out men spotted him,
and he was followed and "held up." Officer
Jim Walls arrested him, and when Getty
protested the crowd wanted to take him to
the river ami throw him in. Instead he
was placed in the lock-up charged with
"resisting an officer," and "perjury." The
"perjury" is this way: He was here thrue
weeks ago when the strikers came near
mobbing him, letting him go when he
swore he would never return.

The truth became known when an at

Chicago, Aug. 6. Conditions were fa
vorable for rapid work on the fair grounds
L during July and the 8,200 employes made
a fine showing. Great progress was made
in laying water and sewer pipes,more than
thirteen miles of underground piping be
ing being put in during the month. The
lagoons, found to be too shallow for the
passage of launches through the channels,
have been deepened all round the wooded
island. More than 90,000 cubic yards of
sand and clay have been taken out. Road
bed to the extent of 71,000 square yards
was graveled, and finished roads to the
extent of 42.000 yards were made. .
State and Porelgrn Ruildinfrs.
On state and foreign buildings 675 men
have been employed, and, with few excep
tions, this work has advanced rapidly.
Most of the twenty-three states now work
ing on their buildings will have them
ready for the dedication ceremonies in Oc
toler, but it does not appear now that
many of the foreign buildings will be
ready in time for those exercises. Eng
land's building is the only one now under
way, and all that has been done on that is
to put down the foundations.
Work on the Kxhibit Structnres.
On the principal buildings of the expo
sition work progressed to such an extent
that no comment is necessary. The only
structures that seem to be delayed are the
manufHCtures aud machinery halls, but
these are growing at a tremendous rate.'
The former will probably be under roof by
Sept. 1, as an army of carpenters follows

It is more than probable that at an early

the World's fair action will be taken in
opposition to Congressman Breckinridge,
of Kentucky, as orator of the day on the
occasion of t he ded icatory exercises. Ev
erybody around exposition headquarters
is disgruntled at the attitude of Breckin

doubtful if a steam calliope of gigantic

Had Wreck on the Lake Shore.
Hakiiok Creek, Pa., Aug. 6. A bad
wreck occurred on the Lake Shore rail
way at this place last night. Shortly after
11 o'clock two freight trains came in col
lision, and a few minutes later
train No. 6, the Chicago aud western
special eastward bound, while running
at a rapid rate, crashed into the wreck and
piled up in a heap. Lngineer Welch and

passengers, names unknown at present,
were instantly killed aud many wounded.

London, Aug. C It was a feature of the
