DEMOCRATS WALK OUT OP MEETING.
Republicans Troceed to Business, Elect a
Temporary Speaker and Adjourn to
Await Reinforcements Future Pros
pects Triangular Trouble in Nebraska
and Colorado Three Parties Who Don't
Know "Where They Are at" A Fine
to of Legislative Rows Indicated
Mixed Politics in California.
Helena, Mont., Jan. 3. Yesterday was
the date for the meeting of the Montana
legislature. There was tronble in the or
ganization of the house. Under the law
the state auditor is the official who is re
quired to call the roll of the house. Before
proceeding he announced that, while Ham
ilton, Democrat, of Choteau.held a regular
certificate of election, he was aware of the
existence of a writ of mandate issued by
the supreme court, which adjudged Ham
ilton's certificate as false. As Ieech, who
would be benefited by the supreme court's
decision, had not presented to him any evi
dence of his election he said he had deter
mined to omit both the names of Hamilton
and Leech from the roll.
Hamilton Fails to Get a Seat.
When the members were sworn Hamil
ton advanced to the bar to take the
oath with his certificate in hand, but the
auditor would not administer it and
threatened to call in the Vnited States
marshal to remove him. The Democrats
sprang to their feet and warned the aud
itor to be careful, and for a moment a
conflict was imminent, but Hamilton did
not insist and the other members were
sworn in. With Hamilton eliminated and
Davidson, a Democratic member, on the
sick list, the house Mood twenty-five Dem
ocrats, twenty-five Republicans And three
Populists. Two of the Populists went
over to the Republicans and one to the
Democrats, giving the l)emocrats36 votes
and the Republicans 27.
Twenty-Mx Members Bolt.
The auditor then rallpd fnr nnminntimia
for temporary sneaker. This was resented
by the Democrats who claimed that the
statutes provide that the oldest member of
the house shall do that duty. Then, as
suming that the Republicans were carry
ing out a scheme, the Democrats and one
. Uiu 8ui up mm ien me cnamoer wito l'opulists and Democrats have been hust
WbTr' SlUa : !in and. claim that they will organize the
as the whole membership is fifty-five. The
Republicans, however, went right on saw
ing wood and elected Populist Matthews
temporary speaker, a temporary clerk and
sergeant-at-arms and then adjourned until
5 p. m. today.
Expect to Have Leech on Hand.
The Republicans expect that Ieech will
be on hand by that hour with a certificate
that can be used to seat him. The senate
was organized without trouble by the Dem
ocrats, who have a majority of two in that
body. The committees were appointed to
notify the governor and house that they :
were ready for business. There is much
indignation expressed by the Democrats at
the action of Auditor Cook in refusing to
recognize t he cert ihcate of election of Ham
ilton. Cook says he bad an embarrassment !
of evidence and adopted what he thought
was the best and fairest course nnder the
The Democratic Programme.
rr i T". . i m . , ,

were in caucus all the afternoon, but what
they concluded to do is not known. It is
probable that they will have Hamilton
sworn in by a justice of the peace at noon
and with Davidson and one Populist organ
ize a, honse of twenty-eight members, just a
majority. The Democratic senators an
nounce that they stand ready to recognize
such a body.
COMBINES ARE IN ORDER.
An Interesting Political Sitnation in the
. OMAnA, Jan. 8. Today at Lincoln
opened one of the prettiest three cornered
fights ever witnessed in a legislative ses
sion. Neither of the three parties has
sufficient strength to organize either house
of the Nebraska state assembly without
the assistance of the other two, and thus
far no plan of fusion combination has been
presented that meets "the approval of the
parties interested. It seems quite probable,
bowever.thnt the Democrats and indepen
dents may get together lcfore tonight. In
addition to the election of United States
senator to succeed Senator Paddock the
legislature will be called upon to deal with
important railroad legislation and other
matters of vital interest to the state.
The House the Key or the Situation.
For these reasons comes the importance
of controlling the organization of the
house that constitntes the body, as the party
holding the organization can control the
legislation. It was suggested Sunday night
that the anti-monopoly members of the
legislature, irrespective of party, organize
tie body and let the senatorial fight take
care of itself. One of the peculiar features
Is the situation in Knox county. By a de
cision of the supreme court rendered Sat
urday a Republican will be sent to the
house from that county Instead of an inde
pendent. To accomplish this it is neces
sary to serve the court's writ on the county
clerk of Knox county.
A County Llark on the Run.
When the bailiff reached Niobrara, the
county seat, on Saturday evening he found
the county clerk, an Independent, bad been
warned of his coming and had decamped.
The bailiff is now chasing the fugitive
clerk from place to place in order to obtain
service on him. Bat it is too late to com
ply with the court's order and have the
Republican member present at the ODen-
ing session. Unless the combination last
mentioned is made effective the house and
senate will probably spend the week get
NATIONAL POLITICAL GOSSIP.
Reflection on What May Happen as to
an Extra Session.
Washington, Jan. a The recent con
ference between the president-elect and
Speaker Crisp was, expected to result in
some authorized announcement on the sub
ject of an extra session. While these an
ticipations save not been realised, as
Speaker Crisp has studiously refrained
from giving out any statement as to what
passed between Cleveland and himself,
something in the nature of a statement on
"good authority" is passed around among
the Democratic leaders. This runs to the
eflLt-t that while no final decision will be
made on the question of an extra session of
congress until February ,by which time the
calinet of President-elect Cleveland will
probably have been selected, the probabili
ties are decidedly against an extra session
of congress before next autumn.
May Depend on a House Committee.
Cleveland, it is said, has said to Demo
cratic leaders in congress that he vrill call
congress toget her in special session. He
also told them, it is reported, that it would
iiot be convoked before autumn unless the
financial situation and the condition of the
treasury made it absolutely imperative
that congress should meet In the spring to
provide the government the necessary
amount of revenue to meet its expenses.
Very soon after the holiday recess the
sub-committee of the house committee on
ways and means, appointed to investigate
the condition of the treasury, will begin
its work. On the result of its investi; v
tion may possibly depend the time at which
congress is called together.
Looks Well for an Karly Extra.
A conclusion on the part of the majority
of the sub-committee that there will be an
actual deficit in the treaEury unless addi
tional revenue is raised might induce Clevv
land, it is thought, to alter his views with
reference to an extra session in the spring,
but no other consideration that will bring
about such a result is now foreseen. It is
the opinion of some of the leading Demo
crats in the house that the investigation
will show that the treasury receipts and
expenditures are very nearly equal at pres
ent and that there is grave reason to fear
an excess of the latter in the coming fiscal
An tasy Way of Solution.
It is becam e of a possibility of a close ap
proximation between revenues and expen
ditures that some serious attention is be
ing paid by Democratic members to the
proposition to increase the whis.y tax.
This would be an easy method of raising
additional money and Springer and his
associates wilt take it nuder advisement if
theresiAt of their investigation discloses a
call for more revenue.

The great iutercst, however, will center
in the organization of the senate. Of the
thirty-five members fifteen are Republic
ans, twelve are Populists and eight Demo
crats, the latter holding the balance of
power, which in this particular case may
mean something beyond mere obstruction.

Sacramento, Cal., Jan. 3. W.W. Foote,

declare in favor of Stephen M. White, the
only other Democrat in the field. This

succeed Charles N. Felton, Republican, for
the reason that the legislature stands tins:

fight, but if some of the Republicans bolt

ST. Pavl, Jan. 3. The house Republi

candidates for speaker, etc The house

in the senate they have only the same num
