Cheyens-e. W'y., Dec. 2S. The decision
In the Carbon county contest case was
made public here at noon yesterday. The
supreme court decides that the state can-
vassingboar-lmust Bcecpt Carbon county
returns f, , L.M 1
returns from the two justices instead of
the abstract from the clerk alone. This
gives the Democrats more members of the
house and insures them the organization !
of that body. The Republicans may make
another move in the Carbon county case
by taking advantage of tbe fact that the j
Democrats made their nominations irreg- I
ulaily. The decision covers all points in
the cases presented as to the legislature at j
the present time. The court holds that a ,
judge of the court in vacation cm allow :
alternate writs of raar.flan-iis, but not pjr- j
emptcry writs. It ho. Is that the state ;
board of canvassers must base its determi- I
nation solely upon the face of the returns, '
mm the court therefore strikes out of the
petitions all allegations of matter not ap
pearing upon t he face of the retnrns.
A Little More Elucidation.
The court then takes the demurrers to
the petitions. The Wyoming statute re
quires that the county clerk take to his
assistance two justices of the peace, "who
shall canvass the precinct returns and
Bend abstract thereof to the secretary of
state." Tbe clerk and justices differed as
to the counting of the precinct returns, the
county clerk making one abstract and the
justices another. The court holds that the
clerk and two just ices constitute a "board
Df canvassers" and that two justices being
a majority of the board their abstract is
controlling and should le accepted and
counted by the state board.
POPULIST INDUSTRIAL LEGION.
Vandervoort Gets it Changed to His Lik

Indiaxatolis, Dec. 2S. At the meeting
of the Populists held here yesterday the
constitution of tbe Industrial Legion
adopted at the Memphis meeting was
amended to meet the demands of General
Paul Vandervoort, who was elected commander-in-chief.
objected to the military features that were
attached to the new organization. He also
objected to the classes that were establish

Tuesday night the committee appointed
to revise the constitution in accordance
with the Vandervoort view made their re
port, which was adopted. Through the
changes thus made the order is shorn of all
but a semblance of its military complexion,
although General Vandervoort's title re

Conceived by Vandervoort.
The Industrial Legion was conceived by
Paul Vandervoort, his intention being that
it should hold the same relation to the Pop
ulist party that the Lincoln League club
does to the Republican party. Afterward
it was decided to give the meeting a wider
scope, and in response to letters sent out by
Chairman Taubeneek about fifty Populists
are here, representing probably half that
number of states. 1 uesday afternoon the
Indiana branch of the legion was organized.
CLEVELAND FORMNST MURPHY.
The President-!- lect 4ippnses
New York Senator.
New YfKK, Dec. 2K The Times says
that it has it straight that President-elect
Cleveland is opposed to the movement to
rm:ke Kuuaid Murphy senator from this
state. The Times quotes Cleveland as say
ing: "It ought net to be necessary for me
to repeat for the public what I have so
often expressed to many gentlemen in pri
vate conversation. Among those have been
Mr. Murphy himself, Mr. Croker and gen
tlemen who have been prominent in the
party from every part of the state of Sew
York. It must not be forgotten, however,
that the party has a very hard task to per
form if we expect to keep the word we
have passed to the people of the country.
They have given usaphenomnal majority,
one showing that they expect us to do
much. In doing this a great deal depends
upon the state of New York and its great
Murphy Not the Right Man.
"The interests of the state and of the
party demand, it seems to me, the selec
tion of a senator who can
not only defend
the principles of our party, but who can
originate and promote policies that may
be presented for consideration in the sen
ate. In order to secure this the senator
from New York should be a man not only
I experienced in public affairs, but who has
' a clear conception of the vital issues with
which he must deal during the next few
years. Speaking frankly as I have already
done to those entitled to know my views,
it does not seem to me that the selection
of Mr. Murphy shows a desire or intention
of placing in the senate a man of such a

Widely Known Agricultural
J Iend ATtc-r a Uriel Illness.
j Chicago, Pec. 2S. Orange Judd, the
I senior ediior of the Orange Judd Farmer
j of this city, and the founder of the Amiri
j can Agriculturist, died at his home, 3J3
Chicago avenue, Evanston, at 5 o'clock
' yesterday morning. lie became ill last
Friday and death resulted from a hemor
rhagic complication known as Werlhoff's
disease. He was 70 years old. The funeral
j will take place Tuesday afternoon at 2
o'clock. Mr. Judd leaves one son, James
Judd, of South Evanston, and one daugh
ter, Mrs. Dr. J. Rrown.of Washington. A
widowed daughter-in-law, Mrs. George
Judd, has made her home with him.
Fonght His Own Way Through School.
Mr. Judd was born July 22, 1822, in one
of the pioneer log cabins near Niagara
Falls. He attained his majority before
starting for college. He refused the finan
cial aid offered by his father, claiming that
the latter would have sufficient to do in
giving an education to the other ten child
ren. At the preparatory seminary one of
his fellow students was Henry J. Ray
mond, founder of tbe New York Times.
During the three years interventing be
tween his graduation and his entering
college he lectured on science and made a
partial study of medicine, which profession
for a long time he thought of adopting.
Concludes to Study Agriculture.
The important departures in scientific
agricnlture, however, turned his thoughts.
He entered tbe first agricultural college
ever estabPshed in this country, now be
come the Sheffield Scientific school of Yale.
In 1872-3 he lectured before the various
farmers' institutes throughout Connecti
cut under the auspices of the state
board of agriculture. Long before this he
had been recognized as an authority upon
such matters. Such lectures were deliv
ered thirty years previous to that time by
himself, and twenty years before, on April
5, 18T3, he started for Chicago, intending
to make that a central point for the im
provement of national agriculture. In
passing through Xew York he met the
publisher of a small paper, the American
Agriculturist, who offered him the ed
itorship. His First Editorai Chair.
He accepted the position and six years
later, at the suggestion of such publishers
as Harper Brothers, Appleton and others,
he bought tho copyright of nearly all the
agricultural books in the country. Taking
the better class of these as a basis he es
tablished what he believed would become
the greatest agricultural publishing house
in the world. When Mr. Judd left the
Agriculturist he came to Chicago and took
the editorial management of the Prairie
Farmer, but left that journal after a few
years and established the Orange Judd
Farmer, which at the time of his death was
a well-established and prosperous paper.
WAS CRUNK OR DEMENTED.
That gro Who Confessed in Church at
Chicago, Dec 28. James Williams, who
created such a sensation at a negro church
in this city by confessing while kneeling at
prayer to having committed murder, is
backing water since he has felt the damp,
cool air of a prison cell. He now main
tains that he was in a wildly inebriated
condition when he unfolded the details of
murder committed at his instigation. Over
his allowance of dry bread and hot coffee
Williams said that La Fayette murdered
La Vauue five years after he had come to
America. Dr. Wade examined the prison
oner and thinks that while his mind is not
radically deranged he is probably a little
flighty, due either to alcoholism or undue
religious excitement. The police do not
attach much importance to the case, but
detain Williams until the receipt of ad
vices from Ixmisiana.
LATER. Telegrams from New Orleans
state that Williams' confession is a

j building, the woman dead and the husband
unconscious, with the room full of gas.

is that when he went to turn the gas off
his hand shook so that he turned the cock
partially back without knowing it. It is
thought he will die.

developments in the tragedy of Sunday
morning in this city, in which Henry C.
Varnum killed his wife, his 10 year-old
adopted daughter, mortally wounded his
mother-in-law, and killed himself, show
only that the deeds were not premeditated.
It was evidently a case of sudden mania.
