TorEKA, Kan., Jan. 13. The rival houses
met again yesterday morning and spent
the forenoon in waiting on the conference
committee, which had no chance to ac
complish anything, so radical were the de
mands of both parties. As the day wore
ou the feeling deepened that Governor
Levelling Riid the senate would in the !
coarse o the day recognize the !
Populist house and that the adjutant gen- j
trvl would eject the Republicans from the
ball by force if necessary. -.,-Qgjayr the roll
call by the Republicans at 8 lock in the
afternoon Chambers, the CoiaiiiAe county
Democrat, when his rjama reached,
came forward nd -started thuV'-he Demo- j
crats of the bouse nad feeptvc'nrt of the con- i
troversy ijeween the Republicans and
Populists and ' had visited .Governor
Lewelling to enlist hie aid In arriving at a ;
settlement of the fight, but now the con-J
iroversy being as far from settlement s
ever, the Democrats felt it to be their duty :
to rocoif lii. the lpu.illv nrcanizefl hniwiv I
4 Populist Make a Mistake.
They had not for a moment aoubted the
legality of th'i P.epublican organization.
This action was unexpected, and was re
ceived with wild demonstrations f ap
plause on the Ker-ibiiean side. Dougherty,
a Populist from Geary county, said he had
been a Democrat all his life, but lie was
not the kind of a Democrat to help the Re
publicans. This action was a semi-recognition
of the Republican speaker, and his
friends pulled him away amid groat excite
ment. Order having been restored, the call
proceeded. When the name of Meagher,
Democrat of Leavenworth, was reached,
he, too, announced his allegiance to the
Republican side, and following bim, Rosen
thal made a like declaration, lie spoke at
length, and said his sympathy was with
the Populists as against the Republican
party, but he felt that the house should gt
to work, aud he believed it to be bis duty
to take n stand in this controversy with
the Republican house.
Jerry Simpson's Views.
The speeches, of Chambers and Rosen
thal were listened to wit h great interest
by both sides. On the Populist side were
gathered the lvaiers of that party, includ
ing Jerry Smt ifson. Jerry Simpson said
the Populists' fvi-re not surprised at the
action of the iVof xirats, as they had been
looking for it fr-nome time; but the Dem
ocrats having been playing for position
eversince the election Simpson thought that
by theitactionthey had endangered the
election of either a Populist or Democratic
senator. The had widened the breach be
tween tliemsrlves and the Populists and
he feared their relations would liecome so
strained that they could not get together
on a senator.
ropnllxta Demand Everything.
The Republicans at 3 p. m. heard from
their committee and said that all hope of
arriving at a settlement was at an end.
The conference agreed that the Populists
should recognize the Republican organiza
tion and be given some of the committees,
and that all contests should go over until
after the senatorial election, but this was
not satisfactory to the fire-eaters, and their
committee withdrew their consent to the
agreement. The Republicans bad resolved
to give up the house to the Populists
without resistance if the governor should
recognize that organization, hut it was
later determined to make a fight for it.
The programme was for Cubbison to take
the speaker's stand and direct the opera
tions of the Republican house until he was
forcibly ejected by the adjutant general.
RECOGNIZED BY LEWELLING.
The ropulist Governor Stands by His
Nci In the Legislature.
Shortly after 5 o'clock in the afternoon
Governor Lewelling sent in a message recog
nizing the Populist lower house, by Secre
tary J. Close. When the Populist sergeant-at-arms
was called to the door to receive
the governor's I message the excitement in
the house had in a large measure subsided.
Bat as the door opened and Secretary Close
was recognized the Populists arose and be
gan cheering. Populist Speaker Dunsmore
rapped for order and restored quiet, the
Republicans making no demonstration.
Secretary Close called out "Mr. Speaker
Dunsmore," at-.d this official recognition
gave the Populist side another opportunity
to cheer. Women waved their hankerchiefe
an 1 men climfoed,into their seats and waved
their hats. , ...
Republicans Defy the Governor.
There were cat-calls from the Republican
aide as the Populist chief clerk read the
following to "J. X. Dunsmore, speaker
of the bouse of representatives:" "In an
swer to your communication Jan 8, 1893,
notifying me that the house was duly or
ganized with J. K. Dunsmore as speaker.
Ben. C. Rich as chief clerk. L. F. Dick
sergeant-at-arms. and was ready for busi
ness, I desire to say that I will communi
cate with you further in writing.
"L. D. Lkwellixg, Governor."
The Populist" again cheered, but Repub
lican Speaker Douglass rapped for order
and ssid: "The legally organized house of
representative will come to order." Some
minor resolotieus were then offered and
the roll call ordered, sixty-seven members
answering the Republican roll.
An Appeal to the Co nits.
The Republicans realizing that an ap
peal to the courts was the only thing left
for them proceeded immediately to carry
out their programme to that effect.
Mandamus proceedings which had already
been carefully prepared were filed in the
supreme court tq compel Secretary of State
Osborne to turn over to Speaker Douglass,
of the Republican house, all the papers in
his possession relating to the bouse of rep
resentatives, Including 'the certified copy
, of toe roll as made no by tne state board
of canvassers arid those relating to all the
various coutest cases. The returns were
compiled by ex-Secretary of State Higgint
and show sixty-four legally elected Repub
lican members of the legislature entitled
An Incendiary Proclamation.
It is clearly understood that the pro
gramme of the Populists is to at once use
the power of the governor and the state to
force the Republicans to leave the hall.
Republicans will resist this, but will be
compelled to retire. An incendiary pro
clamation has been issued by Clements and
other Populist leaders calling on the
Populist house to maintain its rights by
arms if necessary. This document was
adopted at a meeting held Wednesday
night in the shape of resolutions, one of
which says that if the Populist house is '
riot recognized by the governor the Popu
list members must "say to him as did
Mirabeau to his man when the monarch
refused to recognize the French assembly
of the people: Slave, go tell vour master
that we are here by the will of the people
and we shall disperse onlv at the point of

Illinois Statesmen Are Who ipiug It Cpon
IIIlli of all KiciU.
Sprixgfielp. Ills., Jan. 23. The senate
yesterday postponed the resolution asking
congress to repeal the Sunday closing
clause of the World's fair bill. Phocion
Howard was elected reading clerk Bills

the Illinois at Hennepin, providing for
local option in the matter of poll tax; for
the election of school boards by the people
in cities of 100,000 or more population; to
punish parents, etc., who send children to
saloons for intoxicating liquors: to transfer
the Quincy soldiers' h.iuie to the United
States: requiring petitioners under the
eminent domain law at to pay all costs; to
protect workingmenfrom discharge because
they belong to labor unions. A resolution
was adopted for a committee to investigate
the "sweating" system at Chicago.
Same Way In the Honxe.
As in the senate there was a flood of bills,
so there was in the house, only more so.
The speaker announced some committees,
the chairmen of which are given as follows:
Committee on congressional apportion
ment, Smith of Livingston; committee on
senatorial apportionment. Black; commit
tee on election, O'Donnell; committee on
contingent expenses of the house, Kelly.
Then the bills came on. A few of them are
as follows: For uniform text-books in the
public schools; repealing the law prohibit
ing animals running at large in cities and
towns; repealing the "Edwards" law; mak
ing Saturday afternoon a legal half holi
day: repealing the "Edwards" law and pro
viding a substitute therefor (two bills, one
by Merritt and one by Berry).
A Dairy Commiwlonrr P. oposed.
Other bills were for the creation of the
office of dairy commissioner and inspection
of dairy products; prohibiting the employ
ment of minors under 16 in factories, etc.,
more than eight hours a day; for t mini
mum liquor license of $1,000 per year; au
thorizing cities and towns to rpake their
own gas - and electricity prohibit
ing the discharge of employes
without notice; requiring the United
States flag to be displayed from all
public school buildings; creating a board
of highway commissioners. An attempt to

action of the senate and house education
committees on t he compulsory education
bill (Edwards' law) was referred and the

Towderly Confesses Himself a Socialist
FiriLAPELritiA, Jan. 13. A special dis
patch from Scranton, Pa., says: General
Master Workman Powderly Wednesday
emerged from a retirement of some weeks
to address a gathering of union carpenters
in this city. During the course of his re
marks he said: "I am a socialist, and I
say it without blushing. If the avowal
brings condemnation I am willing to take
it. I am one of 05,000,000 socialists in this
country. I believe the railroads are pub
lic highways and should be nationalized,
and that the telegraph system should be
owned and operated by the government,"
Another Iilock in Nebraska.
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 13. Once more the
wheels of the legislature are blocked, and
this time they seem blocked for good. The
rules for joint sessions provide that the
lieutenant governor shall preside. The
bouse amended this rule so that the speaker
shall preside, but the Democrats and Re
publicans in the senate defeated the amend
ment in that body. The legislature then
adjourned in respect to the memory of
General Butler. The militia was called
out two years ago over a similar contest,
but the lieutenant governor won.
Tbe Montana Joint Ballot.
Helena, Mont. Jan. 13. The joint bal
lot for United States senator yesterday re
sulted about tbe same as Wednesday, the
only change being that Beecber, Populist,
voted for Mellville, Populist, instead of for
Hanser, Democrat. At a Democratic cau
cus last night Hauser withdrew and gave
all his votes to Clark, who was made the
unanimous choice. The caucus was com
posed entirely of Clark men, eight votes,
friends of Marcus Daly, not being present.
What they will do is not known.
Trouble In a Popnlist Camp.
Denver, Jan. 13. There is trouble in the
Populist camp because of an election prom
ise. It is in violation of tbe law in this
state for a candidate for an office to give a
written promise to any one to employ him
in a public position for services rendered.
Auditor Goodykuntz promised to make
Nathan Hurd insurance commissioner, and
be admits it. The penalty for making the
promise is $1,000 fine, and the Republi cans
demand that tbe law be enforced.
A Bishop In the Lobby.
Siocx Falls, S. D. Jan. 14. it will
create little short of a tremendous sensa
tion when it is learned in the str.te that
Bishop W. H. Hare, who has led the op
position to the divorce law, is going to
Pierre to lobby for reform. The bishop left
yesterday for Huron. From there he goes to
i-ierre, wnere ne will preach Sundav and
after a few days trip north from Pierre
will return to pat in his best licks again?
