Chattanoox;a, Tenn., Jan. 10. - The
story of a singular tragedy in Buchanan
count, Virginia, comes through a reliable
sounx. Charles Carroll, a moonshiner
who vas beinj; pursued by deputy mar
shals, concealed himself in an abandoned
cabin, barred the door and stood peeping
out through a knothole. The posse camo
along the road, stopped, and began talking
on the edge of the clearing, too far away to
be heard in ordinary conversation. A bet
was rr ade and taken that one of the party
could not shoot through a knothole in tbe
door. A Winchester was leveled and fired
and scmething was heard to fall inside the
cabin. The officers rushed to the spot aud
found writhing in death the man for whom
they were hunting.

Chicago, Jan. 10. Today a Democratic
administration was inaugurated at Spring
field, this state, and for tbe first time since
1856 that party is in power through all tlio
state departments as well as in the legis
lature. It was a great day for the "old
wheelhorses," who could remember the
time when it vas the regular thing. The
only thought that came up to disturb their
minds was "how long will it last?"
Transformation In Kansas.
Twenty-four hours previously, if any
thing a more remarkable scene was
enacted, when with the help of the Dem
ocrats a young party in Kansas ousted the
old-time rulers of the state and took
charge. Kansas is still young, but since
ber admission to the Union she has been
noted for her Republicanism and for tbe
majorities thereof. The ceremony took
place in the hall of the bouse of representa
tives and was witnessed by probably the
largest crowd that has ever assembled in
Kansas on similar occasions. The hall, in
cluding both galleries, was packed to its
utmost capacity, and hundreds who came
late were comm-lled to stand without the
doors. Breidenthal, the Populist chair- j
man, remarked when be opened the cere
monies that the assembly was to inaugu
rate the first People's party on earth.
Peculiarities of the Electoral Vote.
There werj some novelties in the electo
ral voting yesterday, too. There vtas Illi
nois casting her total vote for a Demo
cratic candidate. There was Ohio casting
one of hers for the same. Only one, but
the margin was so close in the others that
old stagers gasped as they heard the fig
ures: "Great Scott! where are we at?"
There was North Dakota so badly mixed
that her three votes went one to each of
the leading candidate;" would probably
have been one for Bidwell if the state bad
Nevada's Silver Ticket.
Nevada got up a unique feature. Her
people are argentiferous to a man. The
population talks silver all day and dreams
silver all night. So she got up a set of elec
toral ballots made of silver, 2x3 inches, en
graved with the nau.es of Weaver ami
Field. Of course nobody else was "in it"
out there. California was another state
that divided her vote, giving S for Cleve
land and 1 for Harrison. Michigan divided
her vote, but it was owing to the law that
gave the electoral votes to the districts.
otherwise Harrison would have had them j
Another State Changes Sides.
Wisconsin, which has so long been a Re
publican stronghold also made a mark in its
history by giving its electoral vote for a
Democratic president. The majority was not
large, less then ".CKO, but it was enough.
Then there was Colorado, the! Centennial

given to Weaver, as the standard bearer of
the lusty young party that played so much
havoc with Republican hopes in the west.
Wrote Their Ballots with Gold.
The Wisconsin electors, in face of the
fact that it was a new thing for Wisconsin
to cast its vcfte for a Democratic candi
date for president, wrote their ballots with
gold pens, and each will wtain the pen he
used as a souvenir. Another state that
divided its vote was Oregon, which gave
one vote to Cleveland.
Tlave Possession of Nebraska's Capital
Speculations. Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 10. The city fairly
swarms with politicians and each politi
cian has a rumor. But the important ques
tion is whether the postponement of the
organization of the legislature will post
pone the senatorial election. It is claimed
that Lieutenant Governor Majors will hold
that in one week from today the legisla
ture may commence to ballot for senator.
It is also claimed that Speaker Coffin will
rule that the senatorial election cannot
take place until the second Tuesday after
the organization, or two weeks from to
day. Would Swamp the Republicans.
This is an important point, for if Speaker
Goffin so rules it.will allow the Douglas
county contest to be heard and if it is
heard there is no doubt the seven Repub
lican representatives from Douglas will
have to make room for the Democratic
contestants. The senatorial candidate
whose name is most mentioned is John H.
Powers, Populist. The Populists support
ers claim that if he is the party caucus
nominee Several Republicans will vote for
bim. Powers is a radical free silver man
and says "tariff is not an issue."
TWO:HOUSES IN KANSAS.
Breidenthal Makes What May Re Called
a Sensational Move.
Topeka, Kan., Jan. 10 Breidenthal,
chairman of the Populist committee, has
sent out twenty-six telegrams ordering
here all those for whom contests have been
filed in both houses, twenty being in tbe
lower bouse. Under advice of ,Judge3
Doster and Webb and C. G. Clemens, the
latter the principal Kansas lieutenant of
Parsons when that Chicago anarchist or
ganized this state, Breidenthal has deter
mined to organize a Populist house by
withdrawing all the members of that par
ty as soon as it is demonstrated that the
Republicanstbave a majority.
A Republican Counter-Move.
Some of the Populist members are op
posed to such a revolutionary proceeding,
and workers are endeavoring to whip them
into line. Breidenthal assures them that the
senate and state officers will recognize
them, and eventually the courts will do so.
In the meantime the Republicans have al
ready taken steps to have tbe supreme
court enjoin the state auditor and treasurer
from paying any bills that may be con
tracted by such rump house, as well as tbe
per diem and mileage of tbe members.
GREAT IS THE COMBINE.
The Iealln k in Colorado Broken by
DENVER, Jan. 10. Tbe deadlock in the
senate was broken yesterday afternoon by
a combination of Populists and Democrats.
The terms of the deal had not been com
pleted yesterday morning, as the Populists
thought the Democrats were as kin'j too
much, but terms acceptable to both sides
were agreed upon at the noon recess and
immediately on convening in the afternoon
they proceeded to the election;of the.secre
tary, aud Kennedy, the Democratic candi
date, was elected by '3) votes to 15 votes.
For scrgfant-at-arms Cummings, the Popu
list candidate, was elected. The minor
offices were divided between the two par
ties. The only business of the senate out
side the election of officers was the
adoption of the house resolution asking for
the full and unlimited coinage of silver at
a ratio of lt to 1.

He was accompanied by two physicians
and his wife. Arriving at the house he was
put into an invalid's chair and four stout
men carried bim into the halt The chair
was deposited in the center of the hall and
the speaker came down to him and admin
istered the oath of office. The stillness
during the time Davidson was carried into
tbe house and while tbe oath was being
administered was almost painful. The
lobby was jammed with people and no !
soouer had the bath been subscribed by i
him t han a cheer went up that could be
heard a block.
Republicans Were Hardhearted.
An appeal was made to the Republicans
to pair with the sick man, but none re
sponded. After some discussion it was de
cided to postpone actiou on the Hamiltou
Leech case until today. Davidson was ex
cused, and now that the Republicans see
that the sick man is sure to be on hand
when Lis vote is needed on political ques
tions it is probable a pair will be arranged

The Situation in Wyoming.
Cheyenne, Wy., Jan. 10 There was
great activity in legislative circles yester
day. The populists held a conference in
the morning to decide what line of action
they would take in organizing the house
today. There seemed to be a slight division
of opinion, and they adjourned to the
evening. The Democrats were trying to
make a deal with the Populists to s cure
the speakership, but hist evening the Re
publicans ottered the speaker to the Popu
lists and almost anything else they asked
for. The People's party people are in splen
