Mow the Senate Did the .Job.
The senate convened at 10 a. in. when
the secretary started to call the roll.
Rich and Royce, clerks of the two house,
escorted by the sergeant-nt-nrms, walked tin
the centre aisle side by side, and the officer
announced a message from the houe. The
president then for the first time recogni-d
chief elerk Pen. C. Rich, of the Populist
house, but Mr. Scott raised the point, of
order that the president had reeoguized 31
person not entitled to recognition upon the
floor of the senate. The president ruled
him out of older, whereupon Scott appealed
from the decision of the chair aud started
to discuss the matter, when the president
again, ruled him out of order. Thatcher
was then likewise declared, ontof order al
though he held the floor for 'iidkae minutes,
but was finally seated by the chairman.
Itepublicang Strongly I'rotest.
The roll call sustained the chair by a
vote of 2,'J to lri. O Hrien aud Taylor voting
with the Republicans. Thus was the Pop
ulist house formally recognized by the sen
ate. The Republicans entered a strong
protest against this action. In this protest
they were joined by Senators Taylor,
O'Brien and Parker, Populists, who "pre
sented to the president written statements
to the effect that they considered the Re
publican house the legal body and looked
upon the action of the senate in recogniz
ing an illegal body as revolutionary. The
senate adjourned until 2 p. m., but" on re

: CllKYKWK, Wyo., Jan. 14. The story ol
A. I J Xew's senatorial boom and it col
lapse Thursday is the laughing stock of the
city. Two gentlemen, one from the north
and the other from the west, chanced to
meet in Cheyenne, both having come here
in the interest of Mr. New. One told tt-e
other that. Mr. New had promised him the
United States marshalship. "There must
I some mistake," replied his friend, "for
Mr. Xew has promised that place tome."
And Now His Name Is Dennis.
They went out from their conference and
told the story to .friends and soon found
out that the same place had been promised
to no less than five other men. During
yesterday it transpired that there had been
post oflices, land offices, the position of the
1'nited States attorney and numerous
other places promised three or four deep.

Charlie Hetlden, who lives at Belleville. N.

street. A freight train was standing on
the Erie tracks and he announced his in
tention of coasting under it. As the sled
reached the track the rails turned the sled
sidewise, and at t he same time the train
started to move. Iledden was then directly
beneath a car and every one expected to see
him gi-ound to pieces, but with rare pres

above his head and allowed himself and
the sled to be pulled along over the snow
clear to the station, where the train
stopped. He then emerged uninjured from
beneath the car.
