Madisov, Wis., Jan. The Demo-
sratic senatorial caucus yesterday after
noon opened and closed without any mate
rial change in the result. The fourth
formal ballot was taken. When Senator
Adam Apple's name was called he arose
and created much enthusiasm among the
Brags following by stating that unless he
secured reinforcements he would on the
nextfmllot vote for Gen. R. S. Bragg. Four
ballots were taken, the last showing the
following vote: Mitchell, 31: Knight, 20;
Bragg, 'JR. An adjournment was then
taken to S:30 p. m.
The Kenut in the Kvenine;.
The caucus reassembled at 8:.T0 p. in. and
balloted for an hour, five ballot Ix-itm
iaken, showing a gain of two votes f.r
Mitchell Kvrtns and Schmidt, who had
been supporting Knight. Knight's friends
were greatly discouraged, and it was bt
lieved that if five more ballots had been
taken Mitchell would have been nominated.
For that reason when a motion to adjourn
to Monday w.i made part of the Kuiy'it
men voted with the Bragg nu n, and the
motion was carried. These Knight mi a
will stand by him to the last. Hut when
the break conies it is believed that most of
the Knight men will go to Mitchell.
Jtrnj-ij Men Olnlm a Victory,
The Bragg men clam, a big victorv in
this, while the Knight forces are jubilant
and claim that they hold the key to the
situation. Mitchell's supporter say hat
little. There is every indication that the
adjournment was not pleasing to them,
but they take their medicine with as (rood
a grace rs possible. The last ballot, which
wns the eleventh, resulted as follows:
Mitchell, at; Knight, IS; Bragg. US. Hragg's
supporters claim that he is the choice of
the people, anil it is to be expected that on
Monday evening the caucus will be flood
ed with yards of petitions asking the cau
cus to nominate him.
At the R publican senatorial caucus
Assemblyman Tucker placed in nomina
tion the name of l'hilelus Sawyer, of Osh
kosh. There was no second and the name
was withdrawn and that of ex-l'nited
States Senator John C. Spooner was sub
stituted, lie was unanimously nominat
ed. In the evening Colonel Spooner ad
dressed the caucus, in which he extolled
the party and Jts principles.
THE SITUATION IN KANSAS.
Populists Iietin to t nsent KcpiiMicaiix A
Tor-KKA, Kan., dan. 30. The l'opulists
in the house began the unseating process
yesterday. The committee on elections re
ported in favor of ousting Xick Kline, of
Jackson county nnd seat inn Ed Shellabnr
ger. a Populist contestant, and of ousting
J. V. l)i.. of Reno county, and seating
"V. H. Mitchell, the Populist contestant.
The report was laid over under the rules.
The grounds of these contests are that the
people of the city of llolton voted in one
district, and the people of the city of Xick
erson voted in the other.alt hough they had
by mistake been omitted in the apportion
ment act of the legislature. Omitting
these cities from their respective districts
the Populist candidates were elected, but
to do so so would disfranchise 4(15 voters in
llolton and 117 in Xickerson.
Rcpiihlie.m in a Hurry.
To prevent Punsinore, Populist speaker,
from counting a quorum the Republicans
yesterday, when a roll call was ordered,
hurriedly left their seats and the hall."
There was much laughter at their precipi
tancy and Dunsmore said it would not lie
necessary to call the militia to clear the
hall of Republicans hereafter, as he would
only have to call the roll. The Republican
senators and representatives yesterdav
held a joint session on state printer. No
Democrats were present and Crane, the
Republican nominee, did not receive a
A NEBRASKA COMPLICATION.
The Supreme Conrt Threatens Regulators
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 20. The supreme
court yesterday handed down an opinion in
the case of Norton against Tan Camp,
made famous by the action of the legis
lature in deposing Norton and seating
Krnse withont the formality of a contest.
Norton applied to the snpreme court for a
writ of mandamus compelling Van Camp,
clerk of Knox county, to give him a certifi
cate. Norton received his certificate only
to be ousted by the legislature without a
hearing. The supreme court holds that its
action was binding, and that the legislature
acted in a revolutionary manner. It is
stated that if the legislature does not undo
its action the court will order the arrest of
every member who voted to unseat Norton
and fine each (500 for contempt.
Made 1'nwers Their Nominee.
Forty-four Populists caucused last
night, eleven being absent. Several ballots
were taken and finally John 1L Powers re
ceived a majority and was declared the
nominee. Yesterday one Populist voted
for Church Howe (Rep.), which is looked
upon by many as a straw. The joint ballot
in the legislature resulted: Powers (Pop.)
80, Paddock (Kcp.) 31, Majors (Rep.) 8,
Morton (Dem.) 6, Thurston (Rep.) 5, Mc
Keighan (lud.) 6, Kdgerton (Ind.)
Thirty-eight votes were scattered among
the other twenty candidates.

SOME BOOKS ARE MISSING.
A Iispute l'.ctween Illinois Official and
Sfi:in(.fifi.ii, Jan. 2 It is announced
here that cash books showing the disposi
tion of the money paid into the treasury of
Illinois for many years are missing from
the auditor's office. When questioned
David Gore, the new Democratic state aud
itor, said ha should at once begin formal
proceedings against tx-Auditor Pavc-.

ing him to produce cash books which are
The Auditor States His Cae.
Auditor (Jore says the records wanted
have always been left at the office until the
time arrived for the Democrats to take
possession. Then they suddenly dis
appeared. The looks wanted are the cash
books of the banking and insurance depart
ments and show what has been expended
in maintaining the said departments
and the specific purpose of expenses. They
also show ;tbe amount of fees collected and
the amount turned into the treasury,
which is said to have shown a difference t
from $15,000 to FJO.OOO each year, and he
wants to know what has become of the
Tavey falls Them Private Property.
Kx-Audiior Pavey is here, and says he
regards the missing books as his private
property. Auditor Gore says he will not
serve papers on Pavey unless the latter re
fuses to give up the books on a verbal re
quest. He does not want, he says, to do a
grave injustice to Pavey, but the differ
ences mentioned in the foregoing, if they
occurred every year, would amount to
about ?,'i",("i, and he desires to make a re
port showing the facts.
Deraocratu on Top in Montana.
Helena, Jan. 20. Davidson, the sick
Democratic member of the house, is now
well enough to lie taken to the house when
he is wanted. With him and Betcher, who
has stated that he will vote for any Demo
crat, the Democrats have a majority on
joint ballot without the other two Popu
lists. So one more senator is practicallv
added to the Democratic column.
