ToriKA, Feb, 17. If John Brown could
Stave spent yesterday in Topeka he would
tiave been immensely interested. How
ever, if tbe former resident of the "Sun
flower" state, whose "soul is marching on,"
Lad been here there might have been more
real war and leas bluffing-. It was a day of
waiting and resting on arms. The militia
Boarded the capitol grounds, the deputy
ergeants-at-arms stood behind barricades
and guarded tbe capitol and the hall of
bouse, and the deputy sheriffs overran the
whole to wd. Guns were everywhere
stacked tip; in the corridors of botelp, in the
hands of militiamen, on tbe shoulders of
the men who bad poured in from every sec
of the state. There was no fighting, not
even a street fight. Men felt the responsi
bility of the hour and no one was anxious
to do anything that would start the battle,
dwelling Sues for Peace.
Last night the Republicans had all the
best of the situation. The Populists
realised that they could not depend upon
tbe militia to attack tbe hall and they
were afraid to attempt to do anything with
their companies of provisional troops.
Lewelling bad sued for peace, or done
what amounts to the same thing in asking
the Republicans to submit a compromise
proposition. The proposition, which is ex
tremely favorable to Republicans, has been
submitted to the governor and be has
taken a day to consider and answer it
Until be answers it things will remain in
statu quo with tbe Republicans in posses
sion of the balL The supreme court may
set today and put an end to the struggle.
Proposition of the Republicans.
The proposition which the governor set
about considering was that the Republi
cans dismiss all tbe proceedings iu con
tempt except tbe Gunn ensej that tbe
eberi ff dismiss bis deputies; that the gov
ernor dismiss the militia from duty; that
the Republicans have full and undisturbed
possession of the hall of the house of repre
sentatives: that the Republicans will not
interfere with tbe Duusmore house, and
that the clerkB of the rival houses xhull be
arrested, and habeas corpus proceeding be
instituted in both cases lefore tbe supreme
ourt for immediate decision,
f Twenty Weak-Kneed F.pulists.
Notbiuii startling happened last nitrbt.
When the governor received tbe proposition
of the Republican bouse he sent back word
that he would have to submit it to bis ad
visers. Tbe Republicans agreed to allow
him until this morning to answer it. The
Populists met last night, but did nothing
of any consequence except to wrangle bit
terly among themselves over tbe situation.
They are handicapped by the fact tbat
twenty of their members are very weak
kneed, and are ready to join tbe Repub
lican bouse at the first opportunity.
SIEGE OF REPRESENTATIVE HALL.
tered in af nooti. Twenty students from
tbe state university, under the command
of J. A. Rush, who had been chosen cap
tain, arrived in tbe city yesterday morning
ana were sworn in as deputies and went on
duty. Student from Baldwin and Wash
burn colleges also volunteered in largo
STATE TROOPS NOT RELIABLE.
Bow the Douglass Men Passed the Might
The Sheriff's Posse.
Wednesday night was a cold and dreary
one for the Republicans besieged in repre
sentative balL Tbe hard-Learted janitor
of the capitol building refused to turn on
the heat. The ball was miserably cold,
and tbe Republicans were forced to en
gage in walking matches and other antics
About the hall to keep up a free circulation
of blood. Sleep was out of tbe question. Tbe
members, however, had the comfort of 1
food which the military guards in the 1
grounds below allowed to be hoisted '
through tbe windows. At 4 o'clock in tbe
morning six gasoline stoves were hoisted '
through tbe windows and tbe members
gathered around them in squads to absorb
what beat they afforded.
Amused Themselves With Cards.
Card parties were tunned by some of the
member and that amusement served to
pass tbe dreary Lours. The sledge-hammer
with which Speaker Douglass broke
down the door to the bouse Wednesday
and which he used as a gavel during the
day, reposed on the speaker's desk, a sym
bol at once of force and authority. The
aotice from Colonel Hughes that they need
(ear no hostile action on the part of the
troope so long as they were under his com
mand relieved tbe tension under which
the members bad been strained and created
a feeling of great oonfidet.ee.
Plenty of Food for AIL
A wagon load of food came in at noon,
and tbe besieged members got their break
last by mail, tbe postofUce carriers bring
ing it in their pouches, because the guards
were afraid to interfere with Uncle Sam.
Topeka was black with people who came
In from everywhere "to see the f uu," and
blue with troops who came at the govern
or's command. Every train that arrived
during the day brought its complement of
troops and Republican and Populist
volunteers armed with Winchesters, shot
guns, and revolvers, anxious to take a
band in the fight which was anticipated.
The capitol on all sides was surrounded
with soldiery and citizens. At every ap
proach of the building a picket line was
maintained. No one was allowed inside

as The Sheriff Recruits a Posse.
The sheriff established three recruiting
stations in the morning and swore in all
who would volunteer as deputies, fie told
bis men who were armed to remain there
and see who were unarmed and procure
veaK.'D8 as soon as possible and report for
aiuty. A thousand deputies bad been rona.
Col. Hughes Tells Lewelling Something
that Staggers Him.
The Populists intended to carry the hall
by storm at S a. m. Colonel Hughes, al
though not officially informed of the plan,
learned its details and apprised the Repub
licans of them, giving them to understand
at tbe same tiiua that they had nothing to
fear from him. A little later he was sum
moned to the governor's office, where the
plan was laid before him and he was or
dered to carry it out. The colonel informed
tbe governor that he was on duty to main
tain the peace und not to break it. The
Republican home, he said, was trie legally
constituted home of the state of Kansas,
and he did not p-opose to interfere with it
In the transaction of its business.
Some News for the Governor.
The governor made reply that the colonel
would obey the order or would be relieved
from bis comma id. The colonel retorted
that when the gc vernor relieved him of his
command his regiment would relieve itself
from duty, and vould disband on the spot
The First regiment, which Colonel Hughes
commands, comprised most of the compan
ies in the vicinity of Topeka, and they
formed a decided majority of the men in
the field. The xlonel's retort staggered
the governor, and the colonel's action em
barrassed him to that extent he decided to
place no more reliance on the state troops.
The colonel tol.l the truth. The state
troops were mainly all Republicans and
not the least relitble for what Lewelling
Another Plan Given TJp.
Then Lewellinr adoDted new tactics. Ha
relieved Hughes nnd took command him
self not of tbe state troops, but of the new
recruits all Popilists. He sent word to
the Douglass bouse at 11 a. m. that if they
did not vacate the hall in fifteen minutes
he would clear it with troops. But he
di dn'Lfor be found that the Populist force
was utterly inadequate to cods even with
the sheriff's posat. Therefore he went into
consultation with his Populist friends and
the balance of the day was spent in consul
tation fin offers of compromise that failed
Decided t Drop the Fight.
During the afte-noon, however, the Pop
ulists met and de :ided to make no further
attempt to pain c ntrance to representative
ball. The dispute will, therefore, be left
to the courts to decide. The sheriff then
took possession of tbe state house and
raised the siepe. The case will be decided
by the supreme court. L. C. Gunn, of
Labette county, was arrested by the Re
publican house find brought here on a
charge of contemi t in refusing to obey a
subpoena to testify in a contested election
case. He justifies ais refusal on the ground
that tbe Republic in bouse was not legal,
and has sued for a writ of balieas corpui
before the supreme court. The decision

received here yest rday for the Second reg

Cn't Elect a Democrat in Wyoming.
CUEThNKE, Feb. 17. Tbe Thompson men
went up to the capitol Wednesday to elect
the United States senator. The general
impression had gone abroad tbiough the
city that a senator was to be elected, but
when it came to a ballot Thompson only
had 4, lacking one cf electiou. Tbe four
Populists had addressed a note to the Dem
ocrats saying that they would stay with
General Thompson until the first ballot
was ended aad no longer, and that they
would not vote for any other Democrat.
The Democrats are therefore out of the
race, and if a senator is elected at all he
will be a .Republican. Nat Baker is the
only Democrat whe refused to vote for
Thompson and be is held responsible for
the defeat of the party and is being round
ly denounced by them in consequence.
