Madison, Wis., Sept. 28. The so-called
erriJiandern suit No. 2, brought nomin
ally by C. F. I Jtmlj.nf t h is ci t y , as relator.bu t
really backed by the Republican party and j
ex-Senator Ppooner, present Republican j
candidate for governor, was decided by the ;
supreme court yesterday favorable to the
Republicans, and adversely to the secre-1
tary of state. The action was in junctional
to restrain the secretary of state from con- :
tinning the publication of election notices
under the legislative apportionment law
enacted at the special session of the legisla
ture two months ago, and from otherwise
carrying out the provisions of the act.
Attorney General O'Connor's Stand.
The primary move in the case was for an
order from the court permitting the relator j
as a private citizen to bring the suit in the (
name of the state if Attorney General
O'Conner, a Democrat, refused to do so.
finch an order was granted six weeks ago, .
and the attorney general, exercising his
prerogative, declined to bring the action
and formally forbade it being brought in '
the name of his office, the court having, J
tiowever, already granted the relator Bnch j
right. The complaint claimed that the
present apportionment was unconstitutional i
because senate and assembly districts were '
Dot formed as the constitution reouires. in '
as compact iorm as praeticaoie.ana that the therefore ir.eli"ible
lumuunrnuti law was runner violated oe
caase districts were not of equal population,
or near as may be.
The Court Doexn't Waste Time.
Senator Vilas entered a demurrer to the
complaint on the ground that the suit was
not properly brought, insofar as it must
come through the attorney general's office,
and that, also, not suflicient facts were
stated to constitute a cause of action. Then
the relator, through Col onel George W.
liird. Senator Spooner, and his nttorneys
moved to strike out the demurrer as frivo
lous. The court three weeks ago denied the
motion to strike out,nied the whole ques
tion of the constitutionality of the law, and
lor four days last week arguments were
made, Vila alone speaking for the defense
and Hird, Spooner and C. E. Kstabrook
and George C. Green for the relator.
Overrule the Iemurrer.
In view of the proximity of the general
election the court dropped all other work
Jn order to give an early decision, which
was rendered yesterday. The following is
the order made by the court: "The court
bold that the order granting leave to the
relator to bring this action on the behalf of
the state was properly mude and the court
fcas jurisdiction of the action in its present
form; hence the motion on behalf of the de
fendant to vacate the same and dismiss the
action must be denied. The court further
holds tbat the complainant states facts suf
ficient to entitle the state to the relief de
manded therein. Hence the motion on be
half of the state to strike out the demurrer
to the complaint as frivolous and for judg
ment must be granted. Such determina
tion of these questions in effect overrules
the demurrer to the complaint. An opinion
will be prepared and filed at an early date.
If the defendant desires leave to interpose
an answer to the complaint the court will
hear a motion for such leave on the next
Effect of the Decision.
Associate Justice Winslow dissented. The
court is composed of three Democrats and
two Republicans and hence two Democrats
agreed with two Republican judges. The
decision is a complete victory for relator and
another special session of the legislature
will no doubt be called at once to enact a
new law. The suit did not involve the con
gressional apportionment. The decision
will require new legfsiative nomations to
be made and will vitiate the score or more
already made. Under the law just set aside
the Democrats could easily control both
branches of the legislature and thus elect a
Democratic United States senator next
file in mv office or be made a matcer of
The Law Compelled Hfm,
He said he found in the law creating his
office the provision that no witness should
be forced to give information of his private
busiiii-.-s. It was evidi-;t therefore if facts
of value were to le pre-ented in the annual
reports they must be obtained sf.me other
way. and he hud adopted the me? bod used
in other states promising j4loiute se
crecy. He annexed copiirs of the circulars
sei:t cut over his signature proniisi'i this
aucrecy. He therefore declared his opiuion
that the publication of the reports in ques
tion would le injurious to public interests.
The case was iostnoried until Oct. 8 be

Canaday killed himself
yesterday with a pistol. His body was
found early in the morning in his room at
712 Tenth street. About an hour earlier
other occupants of the house were aroused
by outcriesjn his office in the same building

In the stove were a lot of partly burned pa

Houghton Refuses to Relieve.
When Houghton an ived he told Cana
day he did not believe his story, and went
for the police to have it investigated.
While he was gone Canaday went to his
own room gnd shot himself. He left a note
to a Miss Moore, with whom he was on
friendly terms, saying that he was not
guilty of any wrong, but that people were
persecuting him and "He is a villain
of the largest." Who "he" is
does not appear. A note to Captain
Houghton said that his refusal to believe
what Canaday had said caused him to have
no further wish for life. Canaday ws
married, but separated from his wife. He
was an ex-Confederate, but a Republican
and a North Carolina man. He had specu
lated largely and lost for ten years.

A I'en Picture of Hamburg; Drinking
Water fan In Texas.
Nevt York, Sept. 28. Development of
cholera on the Bohemia, the last but one
of the Hamburg ships left in the lower
bay, caused a stir among the health offi
cfiicials yesterday, and the third visit to the
infected vessel and Swinburne island made
late yesterday afternoon by Dr. Jenkins
and his consulting bacteriologist, Dr.tern
berg. plainly told of the anxiety caused by
the fresh outbreak. The first news of
sickness reached the health officer late on
Monday night, and the official report by
Dr. Byron, given out soon after & o'clock
yesterday morning, showed that two chil
dren hal been transferred to Swiribnroe
island about midnight, one a boy of S, dy
ing two hours after entering the hospital.
Three More I'nfortnnates.
Shortly before noon Dr. Byron again re
ported that in answer to the flag hoisted on
the I5.-hvn.ia at 9:20 o'clock he had trans
ferred three more cases, all suffering from
severe symptoms of cholera. Among the
Bohemia's passengers are 100 children, ami
the long confinement has begun tohae
most serious results. Dr. Walzer chanced
to see the new patients at the hospital yes
terday morning. In the bosom of the young
man Jossman he found food in the shape
of herrings and cheese, which had been
secreted for future consumption. It is this
difficulty of keeping food from the Russian
Jews end their slovenly habits that make it
almost impossible to pre-ent sickness,
especially when confined on shipboard. Four
of the eases are children and one an adult,
the youg man Gossman.

London. Sept. 2S. A correspondent sends
the following from Hamburg to the Times;
The cisterns are choked with solid matter.
The water in the river is clearer than thht
in the water works; there is clearer water
in the water works than in the mains.
Only one thing was wanted. It was to
provide an entrance of cholera poison into
the water system. This was arrangi-d.

Out at ltasement in at Roof.
In Hamburg bouses the sewage runs out
at the liasement and in airain at the rv,f,
after a little tour of the river and Ibe water
works. This criminal state of thincs h:is
been notorious for fifteen or twenty years.
New water works are planned, but little
else. They sre not likely to be completed
for two years. Whether they will be ef
fective is a question. But the fact stands
that Altona is in a worse condition with re
gard to sewage, but has escaped the scourge
by virtue of having power water works.

8. At a meeting of the post Monday night

caused consternation in the ranks and
prompted several members of the post to

tenancing such proceeding in the coming
demonstration it would be best to deny the
negro the privilege of participating other
