Cleveland Sets All Doubts Offi.
cially at Rest.
EE NAMES FOUB OP HIS CABINET.
The Judge for Secretary or State, Carlisle
for the Treasury, Lamont for War and
Blssell for the Postofflce Will Make no
Secret of Accomplished Facta The Situ
ation )o Kansas Grows Interesting Re
publicans Attempt to Arrest the Popu
list Clerk and a Small Riot Takes Place
The .Prospect Once More Takes on a
Gory Hue Political Notes.
LAKEWOOD, N. J., Feb. 15. Cleveland
officially announced the names of four
members of his cabinet through the United
Press last evening. They are Walter Q.
Gresham, of Illinois, secretary of state;
John C, Carlisle, of Kentucky, secretary of
the treasury; Daniel S. Lamont, of New
York, secretary of war; Wilson S. Bissell,
of Buffalo, postmaster general. On mak
ing the announcements, Mr. Cleveland
said: "There is no need of any mystery in
regard to the cabinet and it is useless to
speculate and indulge in guess work. I
shall make no secret of the matter but
shall announce the names of gentlemen se
lected to fill the positions as fast as I receive
their acceptances and permission to make
the matter public."
Will Confer About Some Olhers.
Cleveland would say nothing in regard to
the other positions or the men who have
been mentioned in connection with them.
It is evident that Hoke Smith, Hilary A.
Herbert and others who have been men
tioned are still under consideration. A
conference which will probably settle Hoke
Smith's chances one way or the other will
be held at Cleveland's office in New York
some day this week. Senator Gordon and
other southerners will be present. Cleveland
had .a social visit from Mr. Cadwallader,
of Philadelphia, yesterday. This is Cad
wallader's second visit inside of a week. He
is supposed to have an interest in the selec
tion of a Philadelphian whose name he
carefully guards from the public.
Populist Martin Has a Confab.
Populist Senator-elect Martin, of Kansas,
and Dr. S. J. Neely, of the same state, had
a long talk with Cleveland yesterday. They
put in a strong claim for a representation
in the cabinet from Kansas. Martin urged
the selection of ex Governor Glick, and left
Lakewood in a happy frame of mind as to
the chances of his candidate. He said that
Cleveland informed him that Gresham. had
not bein selected to" temporarily fill the
place ofNwcretary of state until Minister
El J. Phelps finished with the Behring sea
sontroversy, but has been selected lor
WAR BREAKS OUT IN KANSAS.
An Attempt to Arrest a Populist Results
In a Small Riot.
ToPEKA, Has., Feb. .15. War is on in
real earnest between the two houses of the
legislature and blows have been exchanged.
There are now open threats by the Popu
lists of sensational hostilities and at any
moment there may be something more
than the talk which has been so long in
dulKed : in. An attempt by deputy ser-geants-at-arms
of the Republican house to
arrest Ben C. Rich, clerk of the Populist
house, on orders from the Republicans,
caused a conflict during which two Repub
licans were knocked down and several men
on both sides were liadly bruised by blows
of fists. The encounter occurred in the very
center of the city and created the greatest
excitement. What will be the outcome of
the trouble no One attempts to foretell, but
it is generally agreed that today will wit
ness the most exciting scenes known in
Kansas in years.
Resolution for the Arrest of Rich.
E. W. Hoch, of Marion, arose in the Re
publican house at 11:35 o'clock yesterday
mornint, and after reviewing the history of
the hoisse muddle said that the people of
the state were tired of the waste of time
and demanded Chat it get down to business.
He knew only two ways to settle the ques
tion either to knock down or to go into
the courts. He did not believe in the
knock-down policy, but he was satisfied
the courts would bring about a settlement.
He thereupon .offered a resolution, which
was adopted, for the arrest of Ben C. Rich,
Populist clerk, on the charge of disturbing
the legal house by his actions.
The Sergeants Fiud Their Man.
The sergeants-at arms succeeded in find
ing Rich after considerable search in the
parlor of the Dutton hotel, read their war
rant to him, and demanded that he accom
pany them. John W. Briedenthal, Fred
Bailey, and others interfered in behalf of
Rich, and immediately there was a great
crowd of people in the hotel. After a brief
struggle- the crowd moved out upon the
street, and with Rich in custody of both
Republicans and Populists the crowd
moved up the avenue. At the corner of
Ninth street and Kansas avenue-the Re
publicans tried to run Rich over to the
Cope land house, and a warlike scene fol
lowed. Released by the Populists.
In the struggle Representative Ryan
knocked one of the Republican sergeants
down and immediately got astride of him,
while John W. Briedenthal had to nse
force to get rid of - a Republican who was
trying to pull him away from Rich. Other
men exch mged blows but nobody was se
riously h( .rt. In the end the Populists got
their mal. away and took him to the gov
ernor's office, from where a few minutes
later he was triumphantly escorted into
the hall of the house of representatives, his
wife holding one arm and Representative
Wordsworth, the 'other. His appearance
in the "jail was greeted with cheers and
clapping of hands.
Dunmore Makes Speech.
When Rich appeared, it was not quite
time for the Populist house to meet, but
Speaker Dunmore rapped for order and
made a short speech: "The Republicans
have begun this thing and we will now
carry it out. We, by passing bills, have
offered an opportunity for oar Republican
friends' to bring this trouble to a settlement
OtM wnh out potwiuntawuna jftstf
freluent cmmis to the contrary tbeycnoee
rather to win after the methods of prize-
fighters. We have just shown them that
j we are as good scrappers as they are. They
, ! think this controversy will be settled dur
ing to is session of the legislature. I tell
you that it will be finally settled only at
Hurls Defiance at the Enemy.
"The people will settle it at the ballot
box. Loud cheers. We are right, and
by the God above we will keep right. This
bouse is ours. We fairly elected it, and no
minions of the Santa Fe road shall take it
away from us. We are here to stay, and
we are here to transact business. And now,
gentlemen of the house, the hour to which
we adjourned having arrived the house
will come to order. Chief Clerk Ben C
Rich (he is still with us, gentlemen,) will
call the roll." Rich called the roll, and
after a prayer by the chaplain the house
proceeded with business in its regular
Both Sides Tery Determined.
The situation here is serious in the ex
treme. There is likely to be a conflict here
today which may end in riot and blood
shed. The Republicans are determined to
arrest Rich and the Populists sav they
never will submit to it. Both speakers
have sworn in 100 extra sergeants-at-arms
and they are all armed. It is firmly be
lieved that the Populists will bar the
doors of representative hall against the
Republicans today and the Republicans
sny that if they do they will batter down
towelling's Advice to the PnpnlUts.
Speaker Douglass, of the Republican
house, said last night that the end of this
revolutionary business must come and that
the majesty of the law should be upheld
no matter at what cost. Governor Lewell
ing is advising the Populists to resist by
force all attempts at arrest. Sergeant-at-arms
Clevenger, of the Republican house,
will be here today with a Populist witness
whom he arrested in Labette county, and'
it is believed that the Populists will at
tempt to rescue him when he reaches here
and another fight will ensue.

Another Apportionment Scheme.
The Democratic members of t he legislature
neld a meeting yesterday and fixed upon an
apportionment scheme. It gives the Re
publicans the First. Seventh, Eighth,

doubtful, the Eleventh, but the chances

It may be assumed, therefore, that if the
state is reapportioned on the basis of this
bill the Democrats will have thirteen dis
tricts, the Republicans eight and one will
be doubtful hut with chances favoring the
Democrats. The Democrats claim that all
doubt as to constitutionality is removed
from this bill, as the averace variation
from t he ratio is but .021)9.
FROM THE OTHER DEADLOCKS.
Senators Elected Tet by the Other
.BISMARCK, J. JJ., Feb. 15. It was an
nounced just before the joint assembly
conventd that Judge W. B. McConnell
would yesterday receive the votes of the
Democrats and Populists, on the statement
of some of McConnell's friends that be
could command twenty Republican votes.
There must have been something wrong,
for McConnell got no Republican votes.
Representative Simpson (Rep.) announced
on the floor of the house that he would cast
his vote today for any Democrat who could
come within one vote of being elected.

Chetennk, Wyo., Feb. 15. Ever since
the senatorial fight has been in progress
here the opponents of ex-Governor Baxter
have claimed that he has so' blocked the
way as to make the election of a Democrat
an impossibility. That charge was ex
ploded at neon yesterday. Every member
of the Baxter delegation voted for General

to work for the repeal of the Sherman sil

road, which left Kansas City at 7 o'clock
