Nebraska Democratic Plan to
Catch the Gopher.
DOUBLE-ACTION COMBINE FIXED UP
A Deal With the Popnllsts in the House
and the Republican In the Senate
Kansas Statesmen Preparing for the
Legislative "Scrap" 'ext Week Very
Good Prospects of an Elegant Time A
Sure Thins Montana Carlisle Ac
cepts the Treasury Legislative Notes.
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 7. The Democrats
in tbe house combined with the Populists
Rnd elected the house officials. Yester
day the senate deadlock was broken by three
Democrats voting for the Republican candi
date for president pro tern., thus electing
him. Immediately after the senate ad
journed until Tuesday, thus delaying the
inauguration of the state officers-elect and
postponing the election of a United" States
senator. The Democratc and Republican
senators will put in their time during re
cess in making an equitable distribution
of the senate offices. The house also a-1-journed
until next Tuesday. On that day
the vote will be canvassed. On Thursday
the two houses will meet in joint session
and begin the great battle of electing
senator to succeed Senator Paddock.
Woods Full of Candidate.,
There is no lack of senatorial timber.
The Democratic candidates are: Congress
man Bryan ami J. Sterling Morton; the
Populist candidates, Congressman Mc
Keighan, ex-St-nator Van Wyck and
Joseph Kdgerton; Republican candidate",
Paddock (leads), Governor-elect Crounse,
Lieutenant Governor Majors, Church
Howe, John C. Watson, R. E. Moore and
a small army of lesser lights. It is said
that the Majors boom is an adjunct of
the Cronnse boom as Majors would be
come governor if Crounse should be elect
ed. The Republicans lack eight votes of a
majority on joint ballot, the Democrats
holding the balance of power.
Matters Are Wofully Complicated.
The combination in the house and the
opposite combination in the senate has
wofully complicated matters. If similar
combinations are made in jthe senatorial
struggle the fight will be a long and bitter
one. Several Populists declare they wid
not vote for a Democrat; several Democrats
declare they will not vote a Populist, and
every Republican insists that he willonl7
vote for a man of his own political faith. It
is not improbable that Governor CrounFa
will be called upon to appoint a senator, in
which case the assembly of "!5 will have to
elect two senators.
GET THERE AT ALL HAZARDS.
Word Sent Out to Kansas Republican
Legislators The Situation.
TorKK, Jan. 7. All but about a dozen
members-and senators have arrived ready
for the opening of the legislature Tuesday.
Five of these are Republican members who
live 3."i0 miles distant from Topeka. They
have written the state central committee
that they will be here next Monday, but
the committee wired back to each of them
to take the first train at all hazards. It is
feared that if a snow storm should come
now three or four members might be de
layed beyond Tuesday noon and the Re
publicans thereby lose the house. Chair
man BredentLal, of the Populist commit
tee, is positive that the Popr lists will or
ganize the house, lie declines to state
how it could be done with a majoriy
against them except that he expected Re
publican votes enough to win the fight.
Knvironed by Populist Influence
Tbe Republicans have been fearful of
this, as two of their members are stopping
at Populist headquarters and surrounded
by the influences there are likely to vote,
with the Fopulists on organization. A
caucus of Republicans was held yesterday.
It was agreed to submit to the representa
tives of the Populists and Democrats a pro
position looking to a peaceable and honor
able organization of the house. They will
suggest that all persons except members of
the press, members-elect and state officers
be excluded from the Hoor of the house un
til the work of nrgnuization is completed.
This would preclude any possibility of the
house being packed by members of any
political party and interfering with the or
ganization of that body in a peaceable and
?nt Wliere the ftow ltrcaks Out.
Rosenthal who, by the decision of the
supreme court, cannot vote at the organiza
tion, says that be will, notwithstanding
the dec isson. In an interview yesterday fce
said: "When Haskell is called I will lie
there and vote. Kveryhotly knows I ant
elected, and Srnbhs will not take the seat,
1 am entitled to take part in the organiza
tion, and I intend to walk into the house
and exercise my rights."
Cleveland and Murphy.
New York, Jan. 7. Richard Croker, the
Tammany chief, in an interview yesterday
said that the support of Tammany to Mur
phy for senator was not an et idence of an
tipathy to Cleveland, nor would he take it
so. He did not know Murphy as well as
Croker did or he would know he was a
worthy man. "Mr. Murphy is not an ora
tor, but he has wonderful executive ability.
This, together with his other admirable
qualifications, will make him a senator to
be proud of. Mr. Cleveland will never have
cause to regret the fact that the organized
Democracy of New York put Mr. Murphy
up. His election is certain. I think he
will get every Democratic vote in the
SmiXGFlELD, Ills., Jan. 7. The senate
yesterday laid over under the rules a joint
resolution declaring in favor of an ODen
Sunday World's fair and calling on Illinois
congressmen to use their influence to that
end. Bills appropriating $58,000 for care
ofcapitoland employes' pay were sent to
second reading. Certain necessary com
mittees were appointed, and the senate ad
journed to Monday.
In tbe house little business of any kind
was done. The rules committee reported,
and with a few amendments the report iwas
adopted. The house adjourned to Monday.
Montana Democrats Make 8 are.
Hjlena, Mont, Jan, 7. In recard to the
ceieoratert rSox raider precinct case Hamil
ton, the Democrat, will be seated. At the
meeting of the house yesterday a commit
tee of five two Democrats, two Republic
ans and one Populist was named to con
sider this case, and to make sure, that
there would be no hitch, the Populist
placed upon the committee was Beecher,
who has acted with the Democrats from
the first. With Hamilton seated the Dem
ocrats will have thirty-six members, just a
majority of the whole legislature, without
the aid of the Populists. Democratic sen
ator from this state sure.
Gov. Routt Gives Some Advice.
Denver, Jan. 7. There is no indication
of a break in the deadlock in the Colorado
senate. If continued it will take the legis
lature unorganized over Tuesday, the day
set for tbe inauguration of the governor.
Governor Routtwas in consulatation yester
day with Republican leaders of both
branches and he advised them to hold
things level and force the filibustered into
some recognition of their duty as servants
selected to transact business. The vote for
state officers was canvassed in joint session
Carlisle Will Take the Tlace.
Washington-, Jan. 7. Senator Carlisle
Las notified Cleveland that he will accept
thr treasury portfolio. Carlisle will resign
his senate seat Feb. 1, and today went to
Kentucky to consult about his successor.
Carlisle accepted the treasury portfolio be
cause Cleveland insisted that it was his de
sire to have a tariff bill prepared by the
cabinet during the coining summer, and
could not get along without the assistance
of the Kentucky senator.
Going to Root Out Rum.
Bismarck. N. D., Jan. 7. The new Top
ulist attorney general, Spencer, will begin
at once a sensational crusade against
the saloons of the state, which he says
have no right whatever to exist under the
prohibition law. He will make it his busi
ness to completely root out the rum traffic
of North Dakota. The question of re-submission
will come up next week in the
legislature. It will probably pas in the
senate, but it will not pass the house.
The Wisconsin iSenator&hip.
Madison, Mn. 7. A conservative esti
made of the strength of the Democratic
candidates for United States senator from
this state is: Bragg, 20; Knight, s23; Mitch
ell, 23. This estimate, which will prove en
tirely unsatisfactory to each one of the
three candidates, leaves fifteen votes in
doubt not enough, if they all went in a
ouncn, to make up the forty-two necessary
to carry the caucus.
White Seems a Sure Winner.
Sacramento, Cala., Jan. 7. Now that
the Democratic caucus has nominated
Stephen M. White, of IjOS Angeles', the
senatorial situation resolves itself into
this: The Democrats lack two voles of a
majority. They will get them from either
Burke, non-partisian, and Carlson, inde
pendent, or from Adams and Bennett,
Populists. A Democratic senatorvill cer
tainly he elected.
WORTHY OF A 3F.TTER WOMAN.
The Heroism ot a Pennsylvania Man
Jtring Il.iek His Recreant Wire.
Kaston, Pe.. Jan. 7. Frederick Wilhelm
nnd George Transue, each 19 years old,
went skating on the thin ice on the Lehigh
river Thursday. Transue fell in, and Wil
helm stood by directing him how to make
hi way to shore by breaking the thin ice
with his nanus. Just as Transue escaped
to thicker ice in safety W.lhelm broke
through, and his cries attracted the atten
tion of Alfred Bennecuff. The latter got a
rope, ana ie:,pite thinness or the ice and
the warnings shouted to him started out
on the river.
Nothing Heroic About Transue.
He met Transue and told bim to take
hold of the rope and take it out, but Tran
sue, who was badly frightened, hurried by
and ran home. Bennecuff hastened to the
place where Wilhelm was struggling in
the water. Being a full-grown man he
could not reach t he drowning boy, as Tran
pne might, and broke through himself.
He was rescued nearly dead, while young
Wilhelm drowned. l?enecuff's wife had
deserted him and he had been hunting her
When he passed by the ice. He had de
spaired of finding her. The news of the
drowning a id his heroism Spread over
town. It retched the ears of his wife, ai.J
when it was told that he was sufferirig
from shock she went to him and they
became recor tiled.

Bridgeton. N. J., Jan. 7. There was

learned that the grand jury had returned

dent Arringixm and Vice President Troth
of the National Glass bowers' union. Both
were arrested and required to give bail.
The indictments grow out of the strike
of the glasst wers employed by the Cum.

by a Fobrc.
Raleigh, N. C, Jan. 7 Randall Mc
Donald and two sisters, all old and un
married, lived together in Pocket town
ship, Moore ounty. On the night of Dec.
1 some unknown colored man knocked on
the door of the house. Entering, he de
manded of McDonald that he give up his
money. The two sisters, Mary and Christ
ine, raised the alarm. The negro opened
fire on the women, killing one outright
and mortally wounded the other. At the
point of a pistol McDonald was forced to
give up all his money.
Thought of Judge Lynch, Possibly,
There was no clue to the murderer for a
long time, but recently it was suspected
t&at Bob Ray, colored, was the murdere
and a posse v is formed to capture him.
They learned that Ray was in a negro hut
about a mile from Keyser, Moore county,
waiting to get out of the state. About 7
o'clock Thursday evening he came out "1
the hut to start for Keyser, when the pes.-
demanded his surrenuer. He dashed rt
them, shooting right and left. They shot
him down, k'Hing him Wmost instantly.
