BiSMAliiK, N. D. Jan. 25. The legisla
ture took two ballots yesterday The last,
which was the tweuty-flrst, resulted: Ca
sey, 13; Worst, 7; Smith, la; Kingman, 11;
Anderson, 6; Koaeh, 22; Muir, 12L The
Republicans are still hard at work trying
to secure a caucus but they still lack fif
teen votes and really there is almost no
prospect of a caucus as long as Senator Ca
sey remains a candidate. At least ten Re
publican members bave said that they
would vote for either Judge Hose or Judge
McConnell, Democrats, before they would
vote for the return of Casey.

met at 3 o'clock and after taking six
ballots without change took a recess until
8 o'clock at night. It was anticipated that

he was a stayer. The last ballot resulted: ,

THEY JUMP ON CROUNSE-
Nebraska Populist Propose to Impeach
llim ior Obejlng the Law.
LlXCOLS, Jan. 25. Yesterday afternoon
the house took official notice of the collapse
of the Capital Nations bank. In this bank
funds of the state were e?oS ited on approval
of the bank bond by Governor Cronnse. A3
soon as the house was ready for business
Barry, Populist, offered resolutions re
citing that Croitnwe approved the band of
the bank, thtreby jeopardizing the state
funds, therefor that the attorney general
take measures to impeach Cronnse on the
ground of wilful neglect of duty etc.
The Law Passed hy Populists.
Un.'h'f rules the resolution went over
one dav. The approval of the bank's bond

been his friend. His story in substance is
that he and one John Ray were switching
in . tbe Wann yards, clearing the track
for the approaching southwestern limited
train. A train of oil tanks was run on a
side track and Ray went in and uncoupled
I it, setting'the brakes. Kay then went to the

Insists That He Bid His Duty.
The duty of shutting the switch thus de
volved on Gratten, and he admits it. but
persists in the statement that he did shut
it. Xo amount of talk has the effect of
zausing him to waver in the les't frcm. his
story. The coroner's iurv rendered a v. v-
diet yesterday censuriug the cotuj.any for
employing incompetent men. The lawyers

Discussing Lamar's Successor.
Washington, Jan. '. There Ls consid
erable discussion here as to whether Harri

The harvest of death goes on. Two more
tinmen were recorded yesterday. - W. F.
Richardson died at 6 o'clock at St. Joseph's
hospital and George RololT passed away at
R o'lock at his home at Upper Alton.

No Knronraing; Reports of the Kx-Secre-tary's
Washington, Jan. 25. Xo encouraging
reports as to even temporary gaining of
strength were received from Mr. Blaine's

by deprive the bankruptcy bill of it posi
tion on the calendar.
To Legalize Sunday Papers.
IlAnniSBl KG, Pa., Jan. 25. The agita
tion in Pittsburg of the Law and Order

making it lawful to print, sell and deliver
newspapers on Sunday was introduced in
the house yesterday by Mr. Marshall, of
Allegheny, and was referred to the proper
