Meet and Cast the Electoral Vote.
HFLENA, Mont., Jan. K Within the past
twenty-four lioors the three Populists in
the legislature linre reeeive'l instructions
from the lenders of the party, presumably
from Wasliini;ton, not to vote for a Dem
ocrat for United States senator under-any
circumstance. It is also stated that the
Fopulists in Wyoming and California have
received exactly the same instructions,
with the view of preventing the Democrats
from Becuriiifj nn absolute majority in the
senate. By holding out the Populists hope
to get into a position to force the Dem
ocrats into promising some radical legisla
tion on silver.
Two of Them Will Obey.
It is known that two of the Montana
Populists are intending tooley the request
which has come from the east, but the
third, Bcecher, has. made no promises, and
because he is in a position to elect a Dem
ent a great deal of worry is felt as to his
attitude. He walked out of the house with
the Democrats last Tuesday and has more
than once said that he would vote for a
Democrat for senator. The Republicans
are hard at worK trying to pet him to
promise to be neutral at least for the first
few ballots, but he has sudd nly taken to
keeping his own council and saying noth
ing one way or the other.
Jnsl What the Situation I.
The joint ballot for senator must begin
tomorrow. That was the decision in the
Dubois-CIaggett case in Idaho, where the
state law is the same as it is in this state.
The Democrats have thirty-five members
of the legislature, the Republicans thirty
two and the Populists three, and there is
one seat vacant which either Ieech. Rep.,
or Hamilton, Dem., is entitled to, the case
being a contested one. The Democni"s
must have Hamilton or a Populist. With
Hamilton they do not want a Populist. If
the Leech-Hamilton case takes, the usual
course neithc man could vote until the
senatorial case was settled.
If the three Populists vote with the Re
publicans on the contest and seat Lent h,
they can dictate to both parties. If they
vote to seat Hamilton their glory will be
departed. So the probability is that they
will vote for Teech. The Democrats talk
of reporting the case without hearing te-tti-niony
and i iJeecher will vote with them
they could carry their point, but if Ueeel.:?r
votes for them he swamps his own party as
far as the ba... ace ofj power is concerni-1.
The question now is in view of the above,
and also of orders from headquarters,
"where is Beecher at."
SIMPSON AND STREET E Ft QUARREL.
The Latter Proposes to "Get Even" With
the Kansas Man.
TOPEKA, Kan., Jan. 9. The entente cor
dial in third party ranks was rudely dis
turbed Saturday evening by a stormy
scene in a ho.jl lobby, in which the princi
pals were Congressman Jerry Simpson and
A- J. Streeter, of Illinois. The latter has
come here for the express purpose of de
feating Simpson for senator in return for
the sookless f tutesiiian's aid of Palmer in
the sonsatlonal contest in Illinois two ye.trs
j go, when istreejter, the third party leac. ,
was a candidate for senator, with chance
of success as a compromise candidate. , .
- Cam Nr Using their "Dukes."
Simpson upbraided Streeter for his action
and denied sending a telegram which the
Illinois man produced, signed by him and
urging Palmer's election as the man most
likely to subserve third party intersts.
Streeter intin ited that the truth was wide
ly at variance with Simpson's denial, and
a personal encounter was prevented oniy
by the interference of bystanders. The occur
rence in apt to operate against the election
of a third party man u senator from this
Weaver Reinforces Streeter. 'CTV
General Weaver arrived here today. He
will join Streeter to tight Jerry Simpson or
the election of any Democrat to the United
States senate. Weaver will not be here
long, but will lay the law down to the
Populists on the senatorial matter.
Streeter was assaulting Jerry Simpson
right and left yesterday. His room at the
Chesterfield was visited by many Populist
members, to whom he has exhibited letters
and telegrams proving Simpson to be
working in the interest of the Democrats.
HE HAS 'EM ON THE LIST.

HOSTILE TO UNIONS
Railways Open a Fight on Or
PENNSYLVANIA. LEADS THE ATTACK
The Order Goes Out That Loyalty to the
Company and the Hrotherhood Are In
compatible, and That the Workmen
Must Choose Their Allegiance Ad
hesion to the Union To Be Followed by
the Official Ax TrouWe lirewlng with
the Kngiiieers A Tle-Vp Probable.
ClXClSNAT . Jan. 9. The Pennsylvania
railroad company has openly declared war
on all organized labor. No longer is there
any doubt of the road's hostility to the
different brotherhoods to which the em
ployes in different departments have at
tached themselves. Openly and without
any equivocntion the order goes that the
men roust sever all connection with organ
ised labor bo-lies or their names will be
erased from the pay rolls of the company.
For months the officials have been clandes
tinely at work, using suasive means to
diminish the membership of brotherhoods
among the force of men in their employ.
Lukewarm members renounced their or
ders. Others refused and openly denounced
the road, but got a welt with the ofticialax
across the neck.
How it Worked at Indianapolis.
Saturday the crisis was reached, and as
the news of the company's net ion has gone
to every point on the line, including its
spurs and ramifications, there is iute -
agitation all over the country. At Indian
apolis Saturday morning Orin Perry, ci'v
freight agent, summoned the freight
handlets before him, saluting theruwi'h
the remark, "All of you who desire to re
main with the company instead of the
union will walk to this side of the room."
Fifteen did so and five ri fused. "I do pot
want to be misunderstood," continued
Colonel Perry. "This company will not
furnish bread and butter to men who are
likely to prove unfaithful to it.
Ten Men Promptly ISoiinced.
"You caunot be loyal to the company
and your union, and if yon prefer the un
ion to the company that pays you your
wages, well and good. It is not necessary
to mince matters. You five men are dis
charged and you will get your pay at once.
The others can return to work, but they
cannot continue to work and belong tot ..e
uniou. This shall not lie a uniou freight
house while I am in charge. The company
reserves the right to conduct its own busi
ness, and while I am doing this of my own
accord I am satisfied my superior officers
will find no fault with it." Altogether
there were twenty-three uniou men. Ten
were discharged and the remuiuder with
drew fra; i l be union.
Will Include Kvery Union.
It leaks out in connection with the
Pennsylvania Central affairs here, that
where there were nine members of the
Order of Rauway Telegraphers on the In
dianapolis division three weeks ago, but
three are left, and these expect dismissal
within tweij'-y-four hours. Thus it is
plainly evide.it that the edict is far reach
ing, and wiU include engineers, firemen,
brakemen. conductors, switchmen ad
even freight handlers. In other words
every department of lalx.r 011 the ror.d
banding themselves in a body for 1m1tu.1l
benefits w ill lie asked to quit their jobs or
their secret orders.
PreparinR for Apprehended Strikes.
The company's actions are possibly due
to strikes which are apprehended duri-. g
the World's fair. The more formidable
the labor organization the better it is
enabled to demand an increase in pay or
successfully conduct a strike. By non
unionizing their force of men a general
strike is utterly impossible. When it is
considered that the Pennsylvania road, the
greatest in the world, employs thousands
of men it can be seen how long the com
pany may be in successfully weeding out
their union men.
Other Railways Join the Move.
A telegram from Indianapolis says that
the Vandalia railroad has determiued to
follow the example of the Pennsylvania
and discharge all freight handlers who re
fuse to leave their unions. B. F. Kennedy,
chairman of the grievance committee, says
that City Freight Agent Perry, who dis
charged the men Saturday, says that all
the roads have determined to pursue 8
similar policy, and that a determined stand
is to be made against every class of organ
ized labor. The unions held meetings yes
terday, but refused to say what conclusion
had been reached or what policy was to be
ARTHUR'S MEN GETTING RESTLESS
The Knirineers In a Squabble with a Mary
Baltimore, Jan. 9. Grand Chief Ar
thur, of tbe Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers, held a conference here yester
day with a committee representing the en
gineers of the Western Maryland rail
way, whose demands for increased pay
have been rc'used. It was decided to ad
here to these demands, and Mr. Arthur
agreed to confer with President Hood with
the view of effecting an agreement. In
case none is reached it has been deter
miued to order a tie-np.
Demards of the Brotherhood.
It is claimed that tbe engineers obtain
less pay and are required to do more work
than on any . f the roads with which the
Western Maryland connects. The demands
will be made that passenger engineers re
ceive 4 cents per mile and the freight en
gineers 3i cents and that the latter shall
also receive : 5 cents per hour for all over
twelve bour-work. The road will also be
asked not to employ firemen as engineers.
