a Hopeful Outlook for a Bow.
Tofeka, Kan., Feb. 8. No move was
made yesterday to remove the Republicans
from the house, though many expected a

The Republicans will not vacate until they
are driven out by .bayonets and the con

method, though it is believed the hotheads
will force the governor to order out the
