TorEKA, Kau., Jan. U. There are indi
tatious that the house deadlock may end
in something s rious. Up to latest re
ports there was no weakening on either
side. The Pcpulists are al! firmed, and at
one time pistols were drawn by a Repub
lican !eader and a Populist official The
Populist p!ar. is said to be that Governor
dwelling will cal! out the militia and eject
the Republicans from the house. Jerry
Simpson said last night, when asked if he
thought such a proceeding would be t -.-held
by the upreme court, that if not ' is

is very strained and there are t;rave fear
Topeka, Kan., Jan. U. The predicted
clash between the Republicans and Popu
lists of K;m-as over the organization of
the house ba come, but in a totally un
expected maimer. The Populists made a
bold bluff to exclude from participation
all those members nsrainst whom contests
were pendiiiir. Tin- Repulilican won. 1
not listen to such a proposition, whi.-b
would mean the surren'.iTr-f th'j house to
the enemy, ai. the result is that two houses
are organized and are ii: full blast sii!i
by side in the same room It has settled
down to a case of freeze out, and the side
with the most endurance will win. At
1:25 o'clock yesterday Secretary of State
Osborne appeared at the speaker's stand
and announced that the law provided that
he should lay before the house a list of
members as he found it in the secretary uf
The Hat tie Promptly Begun.
George L. Douglass interrupted with the
statement thht the secretary should lay the
list before the house and should not pic
side. He said that for one he would not con
sent for Osborne to preside, and other mem
bers agreed with him. I):tnsmore, i.ie
Populist candidate for speaker, said that
there was no precedent to be found in the
state to settle questions that will be pre
sented in this organization. Somebody, ie
said, must pass on these questions. In or
der to arrive at a preliminary organizatu :t
somebody must put motions to the hoo.-e
pending a regular organization. The
speaker declared that for the purpose of
completing the roll of the house Osborne
was the chuirmau.
And Jsow the Circus l'estus.
Douglass declared that the secretary of
state could only present the roll of mem
bers and he demanded that he do that and
nothing else. Gentlemen," said Osborn",
"I am here to act in a ministerial capacif v
When this house informs me that it has a
presiding officer to receive this roll I will
deliver it," With that. Osborne abruptly
left the de: i and disappeared from the
hall. Semper of Franklin county. Popu
list, walked to the desk and assumed the
gavel, and Cnbbison, a Republican, quic.v
ly joined him and both began leating the
gavel. Hocb nominated Remington of
Miama for secretary and Cubbison put ; ' e
motion. The Republicans voted aye, a...l
Semper called for the noes. The house
was in confusion, but the Rcpublic.as
continued to nominate officers, who were
declared elected by Cubbison.
Call, d Some Sort of Roll.
Then somelody moved that the house pro
ceed to call the roll. The certified roll
was missing, having been carried away by
Osborne, but a roll of some kind was found
and Remington held it up saying that he
had the roll as certified by the secretary of
state, CubbNon ordered Remington to call
the roll. Shouts of objections were mad.-,
but Remington proceeded, Dunmore direct
ing his forces to ignore the Republican or
ganization. Sent pie continued to hold his
place by the side of Cubbison, but seeme-i
to lack the nerve to enact his part and tfc
management of the Populist forces was 'eft
to Dunsmore. As the roll call proceeded
the Democrats responded as their names
were called w hile the Populists kopt up a
roar of protest.
The Comedy . Right On.
Dunsmor. then got hit. forces together
and they pioceeded to elect Ryan tempo

for the mem Iters to come forward and be

hands, and a Topeka lawyer named Thos.
H. Bain administered the oath. Then the
Republican tb'rk called the roll again aad
Douglass was declared elected speake
Judge Stronj swore Douglass in and he
assumed the chair. By this time the
Populists had progressed so far in the or
ganization as to elect Dunsmore speaker,
and he soon had a full set of officers. Sec
retary Brown, of the senate, now appeared,
and recognizing Speaker Dunsmore an
nounced that the senate had organized.
A "HORSE ON" DUNSMORE.
Douglass' Reply " Hops Oat Too Quick "
for the Populist.
As soon an Brown had finished the read
ing Speaker Douglass quickly said : "Ames
sage to me fjvim the senate says that body
is now organized." This was a horse on
Dunsmore, and everybody langhed. The
Republican r-ouse now began the reading
of a petition alleged to bare been received
from South Hutchinson. Dunsmore w
by this time exhausted, perspiration poured
down his face in great drops, but he beld
to his post. The Republicans began the
selection of their seats for the session a::d
Assistant Clerk Royce read some bills fo. a
ohange, afu..- which Warner of Cherokee,
to keep np the farce, moved that they be
referred to the proper committees.
Democrats Watch the Row.
It was now the Populists' turn to adopt
the rules of tje last bouse, and having
done this the Populists' clerk called the
roll. Through all the excitement the
speakers Douglass and Dunsmore stood
side by side, beating their gavels upon the
same block and good naturedly crowding
eacholher. Once they laughed aloud at
tne ilrajcrou? situation tiny were in. Th
Republicans seemed to have come loaded
with petitions and bills in anticipation of a
dual organization, as Clerk Royce bad an
inexhaustible supply, and whenever there
was a lull in the proceedings produced
them. The Democrats were quietly
watching the row and taking no part in
Both S'des Camp on the Field.
At about b p. ni. a Populist commissary
officer appeared with a large quantity of
Bologna sausage and made them into
sandwiches and these were served in lien
of supper. They announced that they were
in the hall to stay and are confident they
will rout the Republicans and finally cap
ture the organization. At 7 p. m. the situ
ation was unique and interesting, Both
sides were camping on the field of battle,
and both sai l they would stay until the
others tire out.
"OUT THEY GO, IN WE GO."
The Procedure at Springfield in the Prai
rie .State Altgeld's Address.
Springfield, Jan. 11. Probably 30,000
Democrats from all parts of the state came
to this city yesterday to see the Democracy
resume sway after years of exile in the
state government. It was a jolly crowd
a most enthusiastically happy throng, for
to them "Babylon is fallen and wese a
gwine to occupy de land." The day was
fine, the procession of Democratic clubs,
etc., very isiiMising and thecapitol very
Cheered the New Governor.
The inauguration took place in the
chamber of the house and here, amid the
cheers of the packed audience, Governor
elect Alt geld appeared and took the oath
of office that made him chief executive of
the state for four years. With him were
sworn in the other state officers elected at
the same time, and that ceremony beir
oyer the new governor proceeded to read
his inaugural address.
Altgi lil Reviews History.
The governor began his inaugural with
a reference to the history of the state, say
ing that during the period of Democratic
ascendency the foundations were laid for
all the blessings which the state had since
enjoyed. lie also referred to the chaiiKe of
administration ami the honorable part tl'e.J
ftate took in the war for the L'nion. T'le
richness of the soil had attracted immigra
tion from all parts of the world, and in
material prosiH-rity the state scarcely had
a rival anywhere. This prosperity, he
said, had been gained in spite of unjust
m.d injurious governmental policies
The Question of Kiltirat ion.
The party that at first guided the state
bad been called agaiu to power and was
confronted by many important problem",
among them compulsory tducation. Of
this important matter the governor said
that we "have a statute passed four years
ago, known as the compulsory education
act, which is no part of our common school
system and which violates the fundament
al principles of free government. It will
be our duty to not only repeal this act at
as early ada- as practicable, but to provide
in its place auother law thatt shall be free
from the objections that apply to this and
which shall make ample provisions for the
care of neglected children. The state can
not permit children to grow up on the
street, learning nothing but the rudiments
of crime and learning nothing to tit them
for the discharge of even the ordinary
duties of American citizenship, even that
Interest ou the Public Funds.
The governor then pas'd to the question
as to w ho should have the interest on pub
lic funds. 1 le declared his opinion that the
public should, and he advocatedagener.il
law providing that salai ies of officers who
have custody of public money shall be a
per centage of the amount of nionev thev
handle, and rll interest shall belong to the
public. He rrged reform in procedure of
magistrates' courts, which courts he said,
could do great violence to the rights of the
citizens and frequently did so. He called
attention to some of the evils of the system
as it exists, crd urged a reform of the same.
Compulsory Labor Arbitration.
He expressed himself in favor of non
partisan management of public institu
tions; advocated a compulsory arbitra
tion law which shall have power to settle
disputes between labor and capital, refer
ing to which system he said: "Thereseems
to be no doubt about the right of the state
to make a thorough investigation and
render a decision, but the difficulty arises
in enforcing the decision. The state cannot
compel an up willing employer to run his
shop, nor can it compel unwilling employes
to go to work. The state may compel "an
employer who disregarded its decision and
persisted in operating his works to pay th
expense of any special protection he re
ceived. On the other hand, if employes
should refuse to go to work in accordance
with the terms of a decision, the state can
give its entire power in protecting the em
ployer in hiring new men, but the moral
influence alone of a state decision would in
many cases be sufficient to end a strike."
A Word About Finkertons.
Referring to the obligat ion of the state to
protect its citizens in their rights during
strikes the governor said: "Many civil
officers have shown a disposition to shhi
their duty duringastrike.ann this has been
followed by the introduction of an irre
sponsible armed force contrclled by pri
vate individuals. The presence of these
armed strangers always acts as an irrita
tion and tends to provoke riot and disorder,
and we should take warning by the expe
rience of son-; of our sister states and ab
solutely prohibit the use of these armed
mercenaries "-y private corporations or in
dividuals. At the same timeweshoulj
see to it that the civil officers do their
Matters Worth Looking Into.
The fact that a large number of insane
was scattered about the state in poorhouses
was noted as worthy of attention; legisla
tion against the sweating system was ad
vocated; municipal ownersbipof everything
used by the general publio in cities was
suggested a& a matter to be examined. A
good word said for good roads; pro
vision for the employment of convict labor
so as not to compete with free labor was
urged on the legislature's atten
tion; a fair redistricting of the
state was urged; a heavy tax on estates
of deceased persons, heavy fees for corpora
tions on org-iization, and a general over
hauling of the revenue system of the sta. s,
are commended to the no. ice of the legis
lature; whicli is finally asked to tke less
time "off" an . work more continuously. t
"I used Dr. Ball' Cough 8yrup in tny
family and found its work marvelous."
No household is complete without it.
