Commission and Extra Session.
Cheyenne, Dec. 31. In the view of the
decision of the supreme court delivered
Thursday the Democrats openly say that
they fully believe that all other points yet
to be decided by the court will be against
them, and assuming this to be so they have
resolved tofcave a second legislature that
is a lower bouse and elect a Democrat to
the United iSates Semite. They comleoiu
in the strongest terms the decision of the
court Thursday which they claim was the
disfranchisement of electors through no
fault of their own. Mr. Campbell, the at
torney for the Democrats, laid gnat stress
on this point in his argument before the
court Thursday. ( He condemned such a.
decision in round terms and spoke of over
riding the issue by force. Judge Vi.a
Devetiter for the respondents sprang to Ms
feet, and took objections to the remark.
Mr. Campl)ell then withdrew the offensive

position, for what offices the nominees were
candidates, that it was for the counties of
Carbon and Natrona, that it was for or on
bchai of the Democratic party or any other
party, that its members were electors of
any precinct in any county or state. For
all that the certificate shows, this conven
tion might have been composed of miners
and might have been held in any state in
the union. The law prescribes a form that
was not considered in any particular. Mr.
Campbell, while smarting under the effects
of the decision, said to the court that the

THE FRI&TION IN NEW YORK.
Cleveland Again Says He Is "Agin" Mar
ply, But Has 'o Candidate.
New York, Dec. 31. Notwithstanding
the strong pressure brought to bear on
Cleveland in the hope of ' getting him to
withdraw- his opposition to JVIurphy, be
was as opposed to him as ever yesterday.
Clevelanfi.was seen at his house at 12 West
Fifty-first street. "While opposed to Mr.
Murphy," he said, "I am not in favor of
any one. It is too early yet. As Demo
crats and good citizens we should be very
careful at this juncture whom we select as
the senator from New York."
The Kind of Man He Wants.
A telegram from Baltimore says that ex
Mayor Grace was there Thursday night,
and said regarding Cleveland and the New
York senatorship that Cleveland had op
posed Murphy from the start. Grace had
heard it, stated that "Mr. Cleveland, like
many other New York Democrats, takes
the ground that the nomination of Mr.
Murphy, if made", would seem to be the
work of a few men who appear to control
the legislature rather t han the desire of
the Democrats of the state. I have also
heard that Mr. Cleveland is very anxious
to have in the senate some man from New
York city, the great financial center of the
country, who would be able to add some
thing to the influence it may be necessary
to exert in order to put the currency of the
country upon a sound basis.-1
Talked of a Tariff Commission.
New Yokk. Dec. 31. The most impor
tant subject that Cleveland discussed yes
terday was that submitted to him by Con
gressman Gear. The California congress
man believes that the Democrats of the
house should appoint a tariff commission
to be selected by Speaker Crisp and the
Democrats in caucus. This commission,
according to Gear, should consist of fifteen
members of the house, and should sit dur
ing the summer months. Cleveland was
hospitable to the idea. He was opposed to
au extra session immediately after his in
auguration, but he thought that the tariff
commission suggested by Gear would be
able to bring in a bill by August or Sep
tember next, subject to the advice of the
secretary of the treasury in his cabinet.
The North Dekota Senatorship.
Bismarck, X. D., Dec. 3;. Hon. George
Walsh, one of the Republican leaders of
the lower house, announced positively last
uigbt that there would be no caucus of
Republicans on the question of senator.
This creates great uneasiness among the
friends of Senator Casey. The Republican
majority on joint ballot is only 6, and ru
mors are continually bobbing up that the
old lottery crowd has formed a compact
looking to the election of State Senator
McCormack, Democrat, to succeed Casey.
In any event, if no caucus is held the con
test promises to be a long and bitter one,
in which it is feared money will cut a dis
Flooring on Carlisle's Successor.
Louisville, Dec. 31 It was reported
yesterday that if Senator Carlisle accepted
Mr. Cleveland's offer of a cabinet portfolio,
and became socretary of the treasury as the
understanding now seems to be. Colonel
Thomas II. Shirley ,of this city and a mem
ber of the national Democratic committee,
wouki be among the aspirants to fill the
high position thus vacated by Senator Car
lisle. It was further stated that some of
Mr. Shirley's friends were already at work
laying their plans to make a formidable
show and take a hand in the fight.
Senator Davis Has a Cinch.
Minneapolis, Dec. 31. United Senator
O. K. Davis will be bis own successor
without the formality of a joint ballot.
Suchlstbe inevitable conclusion from re
ports, which are as follows: Total members
of the legislature, senate and house, 168;

of Republicans as pledged, 8.

ly with this announcement it is ascertained
that ex-Mayor Grace, of New Vork, ar

with Senator Carlisle, and that both left

MONEY FOR ANOTHER COLLEGE,
About a Million Given to au Institution
at Atlanta, Ua,
Chicago, Dec. 81. By the death of Mrs.
Jane C. Gninmon, of Ratavia, 111., an es
timable and wepbhy lady, the' Methodist
toinliiary at Atlanta, Ga., becomes the pos
sessor of neai ly $750,090. The seminary, it
might be said, 1k1oiis In the Gammon
family, and it was Elijah II. Gammon's
cherished hope of the past few years before
his demise that it be made a monument to
his memory. The institution was estab
lished by the Methodists in Atlanta in lssg
as the theological department of the Clarke
university. Before his death Gammon gave
?Ii)0,000 to the college and in his will gave
Where the ST50.000 Comes from.
He gave the balance of h!s propert v, val
ued at $1,500,000, half to his wife and half
to the other heirs. His wife's half was hers
only during her- life, and at her death it
went to the college. Mrs. Gammon left no
will, and the half belonging to the heirs
will le divided equally, while the college
will ge $7o0,ij00. Mrs. Gammon was much
interested in the welfare of the seminary
us well as her husband during his life
time, and intended, had she lived, to con
tinue to make donations to its support, as
Mr. Gammon had previously done.
WASN'T SO BAD FOR OHIO.
The Huekeye State Trying to Kept t'p

Arthur, O., Dec 31. Particulars have
reached here ofashootingaffairat a country
church, near Porter, Gallia count, a dozen
miles from Gallipolis. Just as revival ser
vices were beginning Clark Watkins
caught his sister-in-law, Mrs. Peter Wat
kins, walking with a man with whom her
name had leen unpleasantly connected,
and attacked him with a knife. Both he
and the women rushed into the church
where a general fight stopped the services.
When the riot w.-is ended it was found that
Peter Watkius, the woman's husbaud, was
slain; Harris, the woman's escort, was
fatally wounded, having a broken skull
and several knife wounds; James Grover
had one eye cut out; Clark Watkins was
beaten almost to death and a half a dozen
others were hurt.' The church was almost
Very Deliberate Suicide.
Beatrice. Xeb., Dec. EL John IL Rock,
aged 59, a Bohemian farmer, committed
suicide Thursday forenoon on his farm
Bouthwest of here. The act was carefully
planned and executed. One end of a string
was attacked to the trigger of a shotgun
and the other end to a stairway in the
granary. Placing the muzzle against his
breast he moved slightly back, discharging
the weapon and receiving the entire cou
tents in the region of his heart. The large
arteries leading to the heart were com
pletely severed. He was wealthy, and no
motive is discernible for the act.
Sent Him to Join Collins.
Hunt ington, W. Va., Dec 31. The jury
in the case, cf Burrel Forgey, under trial
for the murder of Oscar Teck during an
attempted train robbery at this place on
the morning of the 14th inst, rendered a
verdict yesterday of murder in the first de
gree, affixing the penalty of life-imprisonment.
This is the same penalty as was
given Collins, the other robber. Public
sentiment was largely in favor of hanging,
and but for the belief that the trials would
result in that there would probably have
been a lynching bee.
Three Little Cholera Germs.
St. Petersburg, Dec. 31. Professor
Xensky has expounded a new theory of the
origin of cholera before the Russian Medi
cal society. Dr. Blostein, finding that he
could not produce cholera by the injection
of Koch's comma bacilli, sought for and
found two new organisms peculiar to
Asiatic cholera. The disease invariably
follows an injection of the three varieties
of organisms, and it is regarded as possi
ble that inocculation with the three or
ganisms will igive immunity from the
