TorEKA, Kan., Jan. 21. The Topulist
Louse committee on election yesterday
made a report unseating Herman of Paw
nee, Campbell of Doniphan, Bowers of
Grant and Ellingof Nesn, the four Repub
lican post-master members. The report
Went over under the rules. While the
chief clerk was reading the report the two
Populist postmaster members sat in their
seats and voted to lay it over. This makes
seven contests the Populist committee has
decided. At the conclusion of the rending
of the roll the Republican house took a re
cess till 2 o'clock, but many members re
mained in their seats, undisturbed by a
roll call ordered by the Populist house.
Connted In the Kepublirnn.
The Populist clerk included in his roll
call the names of the ten members who
bad not been formally seated. Counting
Republicans the Populist house had a quo
rum of certified members present, and it
proceeded in one, two, three order to un
seat seven Republicans and seat as many
Populists. This made no change in the
status of the seven, as they have been vot
ing and acting as menibt rs all the time.
Raving got this start the Populists pro
ceeded to pour in bills and resolutions by
the bushel which the chief clerk read by
title in all seriousness.
Will Filibuster in the Senate.
The senate elections committee will de
cide the coutests in favor of the contest
ants, and the opposition, led by Baker a- .1
O'Brien, have decided to adopt filibuster
ing tactics in order to prevent them front
being unseated until after the United
States senator is elected. The Populists,
however, propose to adopt extreme meas
ures, if necessary. At 4 o'clock, three
hours after ex-President Hayes was burie
the Populist house adjourned out of re
spect to his memory until today. The
speaker notified all that it was important
for them to be in their seats at V o'clock
Wilt Obey the Supreme Court.
J. "W. Breidenthal, the Populist chair
man, said yesterday: "If the supreme
court decides the laws passed by our house
to be unconstutional our fellows veill dis
band their organization and go with the
Republican house. All this talk I read in the
papers that we will undertake to impeach
the supreme court is nonsense. We know
what effect such a course would have and
we are not faoiish enough to try it. Such
scheme would be equal to many fool
tricks the Republicans have resorted to in
Looked Tpon aa a "Straw."
The secretary of state yesterday refused
to honor the requisition of the Republican
bouse for stationery, and a demand was
made on State Printer Snow, who has
addressed a letter to the Republican speak
er announcing that he will supply all sta
tionery needed and also print the Repub
lican house journal at his own expense. It
is believed that Snow docs this with the
consent of the Populists, and it is a straw
indicating that the Populists will surren
der should the supreme court declare the
Populist house unconstitutional. Before
this happens, however, the Populists hope
to have unseated enough Republican sen
ators to insure them a majority on joint
ballot. But, of course, the Republicans
will undo all this if the supreme court de
cides for the in.

Squabbled Over the J.Mivnal.
The house began the day with a squab
ble over the Journal, Xohe insisting that it
misrepresented ti e vote of Bryan on an un
important tuattei. The speaker declined to
entertain Nohe's orr plaint and an appeal
to the house resulted i a favor of the jour

THE OTHER DISPUTING SOLONS.
Make Little Trog ess but One .More Dem
ocratic SPimtor Is in Sight.
CHEYEXNE, Jan 21. The Democrats and
Populists have gi.iued full and complete
control of the Wyoming house of represen
tatives. All Thursday nk-ht the elections
committee set in t-ial in the ca.se in which
Pickett, Dem., coi tested the seat of Okie,
Rep., from Fremont county, and at the
break of day deci led that Okie must go
and he will soon b ! unseated. This gives
the Democrats V,, liepubiicans rj, and the
Populists 5. The Populists have made a
full and complete oalition with the Dem

books, claiming tht they were his person
al property, but oflVred to permit Mr. Gore
to examine them. The matter will be set
tled in the courts.
Nebraska Getting Tired of Horse Play.
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 21. The feeling
here is that Tuesday will be the "fatal"
day in the senatorial fight. Thus far it
has been horse play because it was unde
cided whether the balloting ahould begin
last Tuesday or next. Tuesday. The solid
Populist vote will si ay by Powers 'until it
is demonstrated tlat he has no show.
Then another man rill be given a trial. In
Republican circles the feeling is that the
Republican candidate will be Paddock or a
dark horse. The joint ballot yesterday
gave Powers 54 ore Republican voting
for him and one Poiultst voting for Mc
Kerghan; Paddock, 13; Majors, 10; Thurs
ton, 5; Boyd, 5.
Madisox, Jan. SI. The memorial asking
a constitutional amendment forbidding
the acceptance of rai way passes by legisla
tors was referred in the senate yesterday.

smoke that the firemen were impeded in
their work. The fire was not under con

Fremont, Jan. 21. Business was sus

body turned out to do honor to the memory
of General Hayes. There were 10,000 to

The religious services were conducted by
Rev. L. K Albritton, of the M. E. church,
and President J. W. lfcishford, D.D., who
forty-five years ago married the general
and Lucy Webb. The services were sim
ple and differed nothing from an ordinary
Methodist service of the kind. They were
held at Spiegel Grove, the deceased gen
eral's residence, and attended by the vis
iting dignitaries aud the members and
friends of the family. President-elect
Cleveland was, of course, present. Be
tween himself and General Hayes there
was the warmest personal friendship.
The March to the Tomb.
After the services the body was borne to
the hearse and followed by the distin
