atorshlps A Democrat from California
TOPEKA, Kan., Jan. 19. -Governor Lev
elling yesterday prepared a statement cov
ering the legislative situation as be sees it.
He begins by stating that the reports here
tofore sent out from this city are partisan;
permanent' state "TilgQways; tor Indemnity
to railway employes when injured through
negligence of other employes; prohibiting
the employment of aliens as deputy sher
iffs, etc; to prevent the employment of
Tisdale Keeps His Seat.
Cheyenne, Wyo., Jan. !'.. In the sen
ate yesterday Senator Tisdale, one of the
defendants in the cattlemen's trial, was
seated hj- vote of 12 to 4 after a lively de
bate, in which he was denounced by Kurd
as a member of a band of assassins and
not a citizen of the state. Tisdale will be
excused from day to day during the trial.
FIGHTS FOR SENATORSHIPS.
Status In the Several States 'Where Things
Are Mixed The Day's Elect.
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 19. The senatorial
situation is beginning to assume definite
shape. Legislators are beginning to realize
what a protracted battle means, and are
casting about for a way out of the present
said reports were inflammatory and wholly difficulty. The Republicans will be last to
unreliable, made so purposely, to create ( caucus, as none of them will ever vote for a
public sentiment against the Populists. Democrat or Populist. The Democrats
The mass meetings, also, which have de- J have not yet clecidcl. what to do. The In
nounce 1 the Topulist tactics, have, he says, . dependents will cHutis tonight, and there
been managed by the corporate interests, is no doubt that Powers will be the nomi-
ancl addressed in every instance by corpora-1 "ee. The joint ballot yesterday resulted
tion attorneys, who have withheld fucts of
which they could not have been ignorant.
The public has consequently only heard one
side of the case, and he proceeds to give the
Itepublicans Not Fairly elected.
To the Republican claim that a majority
of the members of the houe having cer
tificates of elections signed by the proper
officers are Republicans the governor re
plies that certificates of election were is
sued to men who clearly had not received
a majority of the votes cast and that the
board violated the law. He says represen
tatives were elected who were coDstitu
tutionally ineligible to membership in the
legislature. Precedents established by the
ludiaua senate in 1S71, the Alabama legis
lature and the United States house of
representatives in the Twenty-sixth con
gress are cited to sustain the Populist po
sition. Not Prima Facie Kvideure.
The governor insists that certificates of
the canvassing board are not prima facie
evidence of the right oZ the holders to par
ticipate in the organization of the house.
In brief he holds that the governor has
right to ignore the decision of the canvass
ing board, go behind the returns and for
himself decide which is the legal legisla
ture. And believing this way and that
a majority of Populists had been elected
he recognized the Populist house regard
less of the possession of a majority of the
certificates by an opposing party.
Looks Like an Implied Threat.
He then goes on to s.ty that the K-tv.i1 -licans
in the Luse have been acting in de
fiance of law and precedent, of the decis
ions of the courts and of the legally consti
tuted authorities. Says he: "If it were
for a moment granted that their claims are
valid, still the authority competent under
the law to pass upon them has decided
ngainst them. As law-abiding citizens,
therefore, it'jft their duty to submit to tb;
decision, arid if they believe in
justice has been done then to appeal
to the higher court the people of the state.
It is my desire that there be no
further complication growing out of th:s
unfortunate affair; lit the same time it is
my duty to Fee that the authority of the
state is respected by all citizens, and it
must not longer be disregarded by those
who are now engaged in the illegal pro
ceedings in the house."
Doings in the Legislature.
There was talk that the Populists would
unseat five Repnblican senators In cases
where there were contests, but as the Re
publicans would immediately unseat seven
Populist members of the honse this would
hardly pay. All that was done in the
honse yesterday was the introduction of
many bills by both factions. The Popu
lists have introduced .a bill appropriating
$50,000 for the Worlds fair exhibit. This
bill will settle the legal status of the two
parties, as the Republicans will immedi
ately take it to the supreme conrt. The
Fopnlist election committee has reported
in favor of unseating Ballinger, Republi
can, who was seated, under the law pro
viding for tie votes, by lot.
