Mr. Stevenson r-fused to discuss polities,

the Populists have repeatedly stated that
they would take posseBsica of thehoase

is a man in Kansas who is not aware that
the Republicans have a majority of the

only by revolutionary measures that they

CHETKNSK, Wy., Dec. St A demurrer to
the mandamus petition to foroe the Repub
lican state canvassing board to make a fair
count was argued before the supreme court
yesterday. " The decision, which may be
handed down tomorrow, will settle the
main queetiou. Democrats contend that
the returning board should accept the ab

constituting a majority of the supervising
commission. Republicans take the stand
that the returns submitted by the county
clerk must be used.
SUM TOTAL. OF THE VOTE.
It Appears thst Several Hundred Thou
sand Voters Stayed at Home.
New Tokk, Dec 22. The Evening Post,
prints a table of the total vote of the recent
election as follows: Cleveland, 5,567,990;
Harrison, 5,176,611; Weaver, 1,025,060, and
Bidwell, 2S4,347. Cleveland's plurality 391,
379. In Ixinisiana, the Republicans and
People's party having nominated a fusion
ticket on which there were five Ilarrison
electors and three Weaver electors, the
voto for plurality purposes is credited to
Some $ignlficiu)t Comparisons.
The total vote was 12,12H,0(. In 18S8
the vote was ll,rfi3,43, showing that the
increase of vote was only 7SC.579, while the
Increase from 1SS1 to 1888 was 1,843,790
nearly twice a great. Moreover tLere were
no new states admitted between '84 and
'FS. while several territories were admitted
in the latter four years. The increase of
vote, jmlgrd by former psriods of for.r
years, should have been considerably over
Who Was It Went rishius?
Evidently several hundred thousand fov-
creigns "went fishing" on Nov. 8, and it ap-
pears that most of these were Republicans
I at any rate the Republican vote shows
! the heaviest failing off. The vote of such
great states as New York, Ohio, and Indi
ana w;is smaller this year th.-.n it w;is four
years ago. Apparently a "campaign of ed

St. JosKrH, Mo.. Dee, 22-In the I thItI

tenced George W. Howell, general man
ngex of the lumber firm of Howell, Jewett
& Co., which until two years ago did sue.h
an extensive biimness in AtcUihoti, Omahn,
and other towns in Kansas and Nebraska,
and in which Spooner K. Howell, of Chi
cago, was a heavy stockholder, to eighteen
months' hard labor in the Missouri peni
tentiary and to pay a fine of $2,000. Ed
ward Tibbette, manager of the firm's
Omaha yards, was sentenced to a similar
fine and imprisonment.
First Conviction Coder tbe Law.
St Joseph peeresses the distinction of
being the first city in which a trial under
the inter-state commerce law took place
and a conviction and sentence followed.
The trial was held last July and the de
fendants were Spooner R. Howell, of Chi
cago; George W. Howell, of Atchison, and
Edward Tibbetta, of Omaha. All three
were found guilty of violations of the inter
state commerce law and all filed motions
for a new trial, which were overruled as to
George W. Howell and TibbeUa. Spooner
K. Howell was granted a new trial and the
district attorney quashed the indictment,
as he couldn't convict on a new trial.
Th Chas c" Against Defendants.
G. W. Howell and Tibbete will appeal to
the supreme court of the United States.
The charge against these men was that
they gave heavy bribes to Edward Prince
and W. D. Mott, employes of the Western
Weighing aimociation, to underweigh cars
loaded with lumber. Prince and Mott
turned "informers" and were discharged,
presumably with their - "swag", which
amounted to from $1,50 to $3.00 per car.)
