five representatives to scrutinize the

Jeffeksox Citv, Jan. 6. The Democrat

because it did not stick to its mutton. A
resolution was offered indorsing Governor
Francis for a cabinet position and it raised
Cain, during wh-h the chairman threw
down his gavel and left the room. There
was no opposition to Cockrell for senator.

In this be said: "It will be seen, there'
fore, that in the past thirty-six years a state
debt of over $17,100,000 ha been wholly ex
tinguished; fourteen state institutions
counting the relocation of the Illinois state
penitentiary have 'been erected and
equipped; nearly $3,000,000 was paid, as we
have seen, to the city of Chicago; a new
state house costing over 4,000,000 has been
built; and, besides these, other heavy ex
penses were incurred during the war pe
riod. It should be mentioned, also, that,
during this period do defalcation occurred

A FREAK IN POLITICS.
Likely !to Be Shown by the Krbraska
LINCOLN, Xeb., Jan. 6. The Nebraska
house of representatives is ready to canvass
the rote on state officers and can do noth
ing until that order of business is finished.
The senate remains in a deadlock and it is
impossible to tell when the vote can lie
canvassed. The Republican and Topulist
Benators are in consultation and there is
a possibility that the strange sight will be
seen of the Republicans and 1'opnlists
combining in the senate and the Populists
and Democrats combining in the house.
The senate adjourned without completing
orgnriaation, but an effort will be made to
canvass and declare the state vote today.
Sure of Derision in Sixty Days.
The action of the senate yesterday com
plicates the senatorial situation worse than
ever, if such a thing is mssible, and the
fight will doubtless resolve itself into a
question of which of the parties can hold
out the longest. It will lie decided within
sixty days, anyhow, as the pay of the mem
bers stops jit the end of that time. It is
now n jvaiting game.
Working Into tlie I)eruorrat' Hands.
15lsfci:CK, X. D., Jan. f. The senato
figbt egan-in earnest yesterday. Four
enndifhites have opened headquarters at
the SHrridan and the fifth, cx-Govenior
Ordwnjr, will be here on Sunday from
Washington. The bust named is said to be
the special candidate of Representative
Johnson, who is reported to be losing his
influence with the Scandinavian mem
bers. Senator Casey is apparently leading
with 26 votes. The Casey Jnien are working
hard f6r a caucus, but there will be a com
bination against this by the anti-Casey
men. This is exactly what the Democrats
have been working for. They claim that
if tbe ejection is thrown into open joint
session; Senator Kinter, Democrat, will
win, because he has three or four Red River
valley Republicans pledged to him in the
event (hat they are not bound by a caucus.
The election will occur at noon, Jan. 17.
Lost an Electoral Tote.
Bismarck, N. D., Jan. 6. Owing to the
peculiar fact that Governor Burke issued
an electoral certificate to a Republican
when the supreme court had decided that
all three Populists were elected there will
be but two vctes cast in the college from
this state The Republican with the cer
tificate will not vote because he has no
"moral right to do so, and the Populist
elected cannot vote because has no certifi
cate. No odium attaches to Governor
Burke, It was Populist neglect that did it.
$tockbridge Gets There asily.
Lansixg, Jan. C After all tbe sensa
tional talk about a hot fight oven, senator
the Xtepublican caucus last night settled it
ery easily and very quietly. Stockbridge
was efected on the first ballot by the follow

Cheyenxk, Jan. 6. The senatorial fight
in this state waxes warmer as the conven

ernor Baxter is the favorite in the betting.

L.AXSIXG, Jan. 6. Governor Rich was

They Found a Heavy Chain in a Dead Kle
Bakaboo, Wis., Jan. 6. An autopsy was
held yesterday on the body of the mam
moth elephant "Zip" that died a few nights
ago. Professor Donaldson, of the Chicago
university, and Professor Akely. of Mil
waukee, performed the autopsy. An in
cision was made in the stomach and pro
fessor Donaldson, who was wielding the
scalpel, uttered an exclamation of surprise.
The next moment the cause of the pro
fessor's astonishment was plain. As the
ligaments parted the spectators crowding
around could see links of a big chain.
Be Had Swallowed It Whole.
It was four feet long and weighed over
ninety pounds. There was no longer any
doubt as to what had caused the elephant's
death. The professors both declared that
it was a marvel that the animal had lived
so long with so large a foreign substance in
the stomach. The action of the elephant
in swallowing the chain was also consid

Montreal, Jan. 6. T. W. Russell, Liberal-Unionist
member of parliament for
Tyrone, Ireland, who has been visiting
Canada, left Canada yesterday for Boston.
Speaking of the result of his mission in
Canada he said that the province of Quebec
had proved a veritable gold mine for him.
"Here," he said, "you have home rule and
the Roman Catholic church supreme as a
Christian institution and as a political
machine. This is what Ireland would be
if Gladstone had his way. I could say
much, and in another place I will say it;
but this may be said here one Quebec is
enough for the nineteenth century. We

Waterloo, la., Jan. 6. T. H Smith, in
jail at Vinton for killing William Perry
near Mount Auburn on account of the
latter's intimacy with Mrs. Smith, has
little to say in regard to the deed. The
Perry family is noted as being very re
vengeful, and it is claimed that tbe father
of the dead man has announced a determi
nation to shoot Smith on sight.
