Stick Chairman Carter Gives Vp the
Senate Another New Party "a-Born-in"
Helena, Mont., Jan. 4. Democrats have
Becured the organization of the house of
representatives, thus practically assuring
the election of a Democratic United States
senator. When the twenty-five Repub
licans and two Populists took an adjourn
ment Monday after the Democrats had
walked out of - the house it was to meet
again at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Monday night and yesterday morning
there were numerous conferences between
the three Populists members and the rep
resentatives of the two other parties. The
Republicans agreed to give the Populists
all the offices in the house, any position
they might wont on commit toes and also
to pass all their bills, provided in return
the Populists would vote with them on all
Democrats Bid Highest.
The Populists refused to entertain any
of these propositions for the reason that
the. Democrats controled Jthe senate, the
thing they most desired the passage of
their bills through both branches of the
legislature the Republicans could not
give them. The Democrats offered the
speakership to the Populists, the other
offices to be divided between the two par
ties, and to pass certain measures in which
the Populists are interested through both
houses. In return the Populists agreed to
stand by the Democrats on all political
questions and the senatorsuip.
Republicans Learn Their Fate.
When the house met yesterday afternoon
the assembly hall was packed to suffoca
tion. Every Democrat but the sick mem
ber, Davidson, was present, also all the
Republicans and the Populists. Watkins,
the Populist who had been put in by the
Republican majority Monday as temporary
speaker, occupied the chair. The Repub
licans knew that something was going to
happen, but did not know exactly what.
Monteith, Republican, immediately moved
to adjourn until 9 p. m. This was done to
test the strength of the Democrat, and
also because the certificate of Leech, the
Republican contestant from Choteau coun
tySras supposed to be on its way here and
would arrive about 7 p. m. The motion to
adjourn was voted down by a vote of 25
for and 27 against, the Populists voting
with the Democrats.
Conclusion of the Deal
Then the Republicans liean all sorts of
dilatory tactics, but finally a motion to
proceed to the permanent organization
was carried. Democrats nominated Mat
thews for speaker and Republicans
Lockey. The vote stood 2!) for Matthews
and 24 for Ixxrkey. All the Populists and
one Republican voted with the Democrats.
For chief clerk, the Democratic caucus
nominee was elected. Then t he house ad
journed for the day. The joint ballot will
show 36 Democrats, 3 Populists and 32 Re
publicans. This ensures a Democratic
senator and S. T. Hauser seems to be the
Makes Senator Paddock a Probable Bark
Number from Nebraska.
LINCOLN, Xeb., Jan. 4. Promptly at
noon yesterday Secretary of State Allen
called the house of representatives to order,
and fifteen minutes later Lieutenant Gov
ernor Majors called the senate to order.
The senate took three unsuccessful ballots
on secretary and adjourned. In the house
there was a big row in which the Populists
and Democrats combined scored a signal
victory over the Republicans iu the tem
porary organization of that body. Secre
tary of State Allen appointed Rev. L. P.
Ludden to act as temporary secretary, and
directed him to call the roll prepared in the
office of the secretary of state. When the
clerk called the name of Chester Norton,
Republican, seated by the supreme court
as representative from Knox and Boyd
counties, a dozen Democrats and Populists
sprang to their feet and protested.
Accused the Supreme Court.
Fortor, Populist, of Merrick, called at
tention to the fact that the roll-call dis
tributed among the memters did cot tally
with the one called. Secretary Allen re
plied that he held the certificate of Norton.
Porter asked if he did not also hold that
of Kruse, Norton's opponent. Porter de
manded thatKmse's name be placed be
side Norton's, or Norton's struck off. Wat
son, Republican, held that the roll of the
secretary should stand until the house was
organized and the rights of the contestants
be then decided. Casper, Democrat, of But
ler, said the supreme court and the secre
tary of state were being used for partisan
ends, and Torter, of Merrick, said that
the Populists could not be played for suck
ers again. Casper said that he did not pro
pose to allow the supreme court to again
practice chicanery on the legislature. Cas
per moved and Porter seconded that Nor
ton's name be stricken off, but Secretary
Allen refused to put the motion.
Majority Against the Republicans.
So Porter put it and declared it carried.
The secretary proceeded with roll call.
but the Democrats and Populists refused
to answer, i ae secretary aeciaea that a
majority had answered and called for
nominations for temporary speaker. Howe,
of Helena, was named by the Republicans
and Sheridan, oi tied Willow, by the Fopu
lists. The Democrats sided with the Popu
lists and bhendan was elected 51 to 48,
Eric Johnson was elected temporary clerk
by acclamation. A committee of five, two
Populists, two Democrats, one Republican.
was named to pass on credentials. The
bouse adjourned to 3 p. m.

Ran Dnwu That County Clerk.
A telegram from Omaha says that Mon
day night County Clerk VanCamp, of
Knox county, was captured by a messen
ger from the state supreme court and or
dered to canvass the returns of Knox and
Boyd counties. VanCamp had already is
sued a certificate of election to Krnse, the
Populist candidate for the house, but had
not canvassed the vote of Boyd county.
When he was ordered to do so VanCamp
fled and was only captured after a two
days' chase. Late Monday night he com
pleted the canvass of the votes and issued
a second certificate of election to Chester
Norton, the Republican.

Denver., Jan. 4. The legislative situa
tion is still very much mixed and the or
ganization of the two houses as much a
matter of doubt as ever. Combinations
are made and broken as rapidly as made.
The Republicans senators have decided to
present the name of Senator Smith, the
Populists the name of B. Clark Wheeler,
the straight Democrats the name of Cas
simeo Barela, and the "White Wings" the
Dame of Senator McKinley, for sneaker
pro. tern, of the senate. In the house
straight Democratic meitibers adhere to
Wooten for speaker.

The Populists appointed a committee to
confer with Woolen to obtain his condi

effected, while the Republicans, who have
one majority, will probably settle upon

As neither party has a clear majority in
the senate some sort of a combination must
be made and the chances favor a fusion of
Democrats and Populists, the former try

positively deny the report that two of
their number would act tic traitor.
