TOPEKA, Kan., Jan. 17. The white
winged dove of peace fluttered over Topeka
yesterday, ont thus far has obstinately re
fused to alight. Still the prospect for
peace wts better last night than at any
time since the famous wrangle began. The
rival houses have decided to bury their
animosities so far as to appoint a confer'
ence committee composed of three PopU

This committee has been in session several j
hours, and although no conclusion has been j
arrived fat as yet, there is good ground for
hope thit it may find a way out of the dif
Governor I.ewelllug Kxplalns.
Governor Lewelling last evening gave
out a statement for publication explaining
his departure from custom in recognizing
the Populist house before the senate had
even by resolution taken cognizance of its
existence. He said that he gave his official
recognition of.the Populist house on Thurs
day. The house had already notified him
of its organization and had sent a concur
rent resolution to the senate appointing a
committee to inform him that the house
was ready for business. Instead of adopt
ing that resolution the senate had ap
pointed a committee to inquire into the
leg.J status of the Populist house.
Senate Went Beyond Its night.
Then senate had uo right, although it
migut take the privilege, of inquiring into
the legality of the organization of the house
It should Judge simply on the ff.ee of the
facts before it, which was the legally or
ganized house. He had WHited two days
for tbe senate to pass the house resolution,
The senate having failed to take that action
he had on Thursday sent his message to
the Populist house recognizing it as the
one legally organized. The next day the
senate having passed the house resolution
he informed the joint committee that he
would transmit his message today.
Down to the Meat of the Matter.
The governor said that he had recognized
the Populist house because he had honest ly
believed it to be the one constitutionally
organized and because he did not wish to
appear to be influenced by he senate's
action on the matter. The Republican
state officers who constituted the board of
election had prepared the roll of members
of the legislature, Lad uuilifie i the law and
had ninc'e it appear that the republicans
had a majority, when, in reality, the
Populist had elected a majority of can

A REPUBLICAN FOR " PAP".
The Itmw Had Nothing Else to I, A p-
At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon the
rival henses assembled pursuant to the
agreement of Saturday. The attendance
on the loor was confined almost wholly
to members and members of the press, all
others being excluded. The galleries were
locked, -and for the first time since the ses
sion opened a week ago t here was some
thing like order in the hall. There had
been ta)k all day from both sides that
there ws)s no hope of a compromise, and the
members of the rival houses at once began
conferring among themselves with a view
to making a start toward a peaceful settle
ment of their troubles.
Nofel Committee of the Whole.
Both f houses began in the usual way,
first casing the rolls and then listening to
prayer By tbe chaplin. ; Then adopted con
currentfesolutious providing for joint con
ventions today for the election of a state
printer,'tbe Populists fixing tbe hour of
noon ailfi the Republicans the hour of 11
o'clock '.a. m. Having done this both
houses took a recess for an hour and the
two bodies immediately went into com
mittee of the whole to devise a way of set
tling thJc troubles. The suggestion to go
into committee of the whole was made by
Seaton .Rep.) of Atchison, and on mo
tion of jtVarner (Rep.) of Chrrokee. Whit
tin (Pojp.) of Lincoln was chosen chair
Appointed a Committee on Peaea.
This step toward peace so harmoniously
taken, a conference committee consisting of
Warnert Trout man, and Seaton. Republic
ans, ana Campbell, Coburn, and Rvan, Pop
ulists, as appointed to take the question of
a settlement in hand. These gentlemen acc
epted tle duty, and at 5 o'clock retired to a
room Undeliberate. Tbey were given thirty
minntef? in which to arrive at an agree
ment, with the understanding that they
were togbave more time if they wanted it.
While fihis was a good beginning, it was
not beloved that it could arrive at a satis
factory Agreement, but it was a chance for
a peaceful solution of the trouble, and as a
conservative spirit seemed to have taken
possession of the Popuilst side since the
afternoon session began there was a hope
ful feeling all over the floor. After wait
ing tillfter 5:30 and nothing from the
conference both houses adjourned nntil 6
o'clock In the evening.
Making; Mighty Slow Progress.
At 8 o'clock the two houses were called
to order again only to hear that the com
mittee was not yet ready to make a report.
By agreement a recos was then taken so
that each house could caucus for a state
printer. After this was done, finding that
the committee was still unable to report,
the house adjourned for the day.
lSfcrking for the Kepublieana.
DoDdt CITY, Kan., Jan. 17. At a meet
ing of ike citizens the following resolution
was adopted unanimously and wired to the
speaker! -of the Republican house at Topeka:
"That tie, citizens of Ford county, regard
less of former party affiliations, by com
mon consent have met to declare our faith
In our preventative, M. W. Sutton, and
to assure him that we are ready to support
him by all means in our power in standing

Doner vt, compromise. That we command
Appears to Be the Political Status of
Denver, Jan. 17. The Republican
majority in the lower honse of the legisla
ture yesterday became a minority by the
bolt of Representative Funderburgh, who
has gone over to the fusionists becase of a
failure to secure all the pntronage he
thought he was entitled to. The present
organization is threatened and the scenes
of two years ago are likely to be repeated,
when the regularly elected speaker was
supplanted by a combine speaker. Tha
Republicans are doing everything in their
power to bring the bolting member back
Into the traces, but he knows his power
and the fusionists are biddiig high for his
Too Good an Opportunity to Trade.
Funderburgh had very little to say, but
he declared that the Republicans had
broken every promise made to him in the
various caucuses, and he did not propose to
stand this sort of treatment any longer.
Several Republican members insisted that
no pledges had been brokrn with Funder
burgh. They declared that he was given
the appointment of sergeant-at-arms, the
only thing he asked for, and that besides a
place was secured for him on the World's
fair commission which was better than
half a dozen clerkships.
THE POPULIST CAN'T PRESIDE.
Balloting for t'nited States Senator Be
gins in Nebraska Today.
Lincoln-, Xeb., Jan. 17. The ltepnb
licans won the first move in the senatorial
game yesterday by defeating the amend
ment that the Populist speaker preside at
joint sessions. This was accomplished by
the aid of three Democrats. This allows
Majors, Repnblican lieutenant governor,
to preside, and the Republicans are
jubilant The balloting begius today.
Neither party will present caucus nominees
until the strength of each of the forty
three avowed candidate! is made known by
The Leading Candidates.
Last night the Republican tide seemed to
be setting in toward John M. Thurston.
John Powers seemed to be a favorite with
the Fopulists, but the Democrats oppose
him and the two parties must act together
in order to defeat the Republicans. Ex

Winchkster, Tenn., Jan. 17. A scens
never witnessed before in the history of
Tennessee took place yesterday at Wolf
Crag when, in the presence of the supreme
justices of the state, a committee from the
lcgislat ure, and a few friends, Peter Turney
took the oath that made him governor of
Tennessee. Governor Turney has been
seriously ill, and is now suffering from

Tbe House Adopts a Joint Resolution to
Washington, Jan. 17. Morrill, in the
senate yesterday spoke against the McGar
rahan bill: Peffer in favor of limiting the
presidential office to one term, and Call in
defense of tbe constitutionality of the anti
option bill. Progress was made on this
bill. The amendments that; had been
offered by Vilas and Daniel were defeated
by large majorities, and some amendments
offered by Washburn were agreed too, one
of them fixing tbe first of July, 1893, aa the
time when the bill is to go into effect.
For almost an hour the time of the honse
was consumed in t he considaration of a
resolution to which there was not the
slightest opposition in any quarter, and
which was finally adopted without ob
jection. It was one calling upon the exe
cutive departments for information as to
the number and amount of war claims
allowed or disallowed by such depart
ments. Tbs house defeated a bill to settle
the claims of Arkansas and other states
under the swamp land grants. A joint
resolution for a constitutional amendment
for the election of the United States sena
tors by popular vote was carried without
Vsncw ot Kepuiiicaa Senators.
Washington, Jan. 17. The Republican
senators caucused yesterday on the order
of business. It was decided that a vote on
the anti-option bill be taken tomorrow, a
decision to tbe same effect having been
come to by the Democrats. The anti-silver
senators war ted the Sherman law repeal
bill to come np next, but the silverites op
posed this and there being a small attend
ance the mat' ?r was left undecided. Ad
mission of territories as states was dis
cussed and it is probable that an omnibus
bill for the admission of New Mexico, Ari
cona, Oklahoma an4 Utah will be Intro
daced by Carey.
Tbe Canadian Squabble.
Washington, Jan, 17. The correspon
dence over the rights of Americans in
Canadian canals will soon be published.
Canada claimed that she had a right to levy
discriminating tolls because the United
States had not given Canadian vessels
equal privileges in - New' York canals, as
provided in the treaty, and had not permit
ted free navigation of said canals and the
Hudson river to Canadians, finally offering
to abolish the discriminating tolls if the
United States would extend Canadians
privileges to the Hudson. Secretary of
State Foster first shows that Canadians
haw had equal privileges on New York
canals, and next that ' navigation of the
Hudson is not in the treaty. The secre
tary's reply is a successful defense of the
position of the United States.
No More American Cardinals.
Rome, Jan. 17. The pope created four
teen cardinals at the consistory yesterday,
the list not including any Americans.
Archbishop Vanghan, of Westminster,
was elevated to the cardinalate, also Arch
bishop Logle, primate of Ireland.
