COURTS TO DECIDE.
The Treaty of Peace Signed at
Kansas' Capital. - . 1
RIVAL HOUSES TO ASSEMBLE APAET
The " Don class Clau " to Bold the Repre
sentative Ball and the Popnllsts Find
Another Chamber Questions at Issue
Now in Frogress of Solution by the
Court. Troops and Deputy Sheriffs Dis
banded Hilarious Scene In the Repub
lican Bonne When the Settlement Was
Reached A Little Blood-Spilling.
Topeka, Feb. IS. Peace reigns supreme
In the capital city of the "Grasshopper"
state. The specter of civil war no longer
stalks abroad. Hostilities have been avert
ed without the shedding of blood. Like
the ruler of France in anclent-history Gov
ernor Lewelling has marched his men tip
the hill and marched them down again.
That and nothing more.
The members of the "legal house," as the
Republicans call themselves, regard the
outcome of the difficulty in the light of a
signal victory. They have secured all that
they Were contending for the right to
meet and transact their business in the
hall of the house of representatives and
the reference of the question at issue to
Populist Take Another View.
Meanwhile the Populist house is on the
outside, but its members do not by any
means concede that they are worsted. On
the contrary they claim that the situation
has returned to the original status, and
this solely on account of their disinclina
tion to mar the good name of the state by
insisting on a course that would inevitably
have involved the shedding of blood. Gov
ernor Lewelling himself asserts that to the
magnanimity of the Populists in failing
to insist upon their legal rights is due alone
the peaceable tnrn of affairs.
The Compromise Agreement.
The agreement, as signed by the parties
to the squabble, which has brought peace
out of disorder, is to the effect that the Re
publicans are to have undisputed possession
of representative hall; that the Populists
shall meet in another hall; that no more
arrests of Populists shall be made by Re
publican officials; that the governor shall
remove the military force and the sheriff
disband his deputies, and that the ques
tions at issue shall be decided by the courts.
The sheriff was permitted to retain
eighteen deputies, twelve of whom were
to keep curiosity mongers out of the capi
tol building and the others to guard the
state house grounds.
Carried Into Effect at Onee.
Measures were at once taken to carry
this agreement into effect. The deputies
were disbanded by the sheriff and the mili
tia given home-marching orders. There
were 2,000 of the deputies, and the sheriff
says that none of them has asked or will
ask for a warrant for pay, each considering
that he was performing a patriotic duty in
serving. He said the governor was a per
fect gentleman in every respect and if let
alone would do what wjik right. Tt took
time to attend to the business of disband
ing and it was afternoon liefore the whole
matter was satisfactorily arranged. But
the work was finally done and Topeka has
ceased, for the time anyhow, to be an
armed camp of partisans.
First and Only Klondslied,
There was a rush through the militia
guard at the state house made yesterday
morning by a force of deputy sheriffs with
food for the besieged Douglass house. Dur
ing the scuffle a boy of twelve years at
tempted to get through. Lieutenant Patty,
in charge of the guard, pounced upon the
little fellow. The boy resisted and was
kicking and scratching when the lieuten
ant choked him into submission. He had
the boy down in the snow when some one
struck the lieutenant a hard blow ou the
head with a club, felling him prostrate
upon the ground and bringing the blood
from the severe cut inflicted. Lieutenant
Patty rose and threw btck his coat as if
to draw bis revolver. Mr. Stein got the
drop on "him and threatened to shoot if
Patty drew his revolver. Patty walked
away and a serious conflict was averted.
REJOICING OF THE REPUBLICANS.
They Co Sort of Wild Over the Issue of
';. the Difficulty.
The scenes in the hall yesterday afternoon
after the agreement had leen approved
have probably never been parallelled in the
history of a legislative assembly. Over in
one corner an improvised quartette started
the "Star Spangled Banner;" in the oppo
site one a group of solons wrung each oth
er's hands to the air of "Anld Lang Syne."
Some embraced their colleagues at the
desks to the right and left; others threaded
their way around the chamber grasping
and squeezing every band in sight. -The
Girls They Left Behind Them.
Meanwhile the wives, daughters apd
friends of many of the legislators, who had
been weighed down with anxiety since the
inauguration of the siege, were clamoring
for admittance. The speaker gave the
order for the doors to be opened and the
representatives of the gentler sex rushed in
pell-mell, seeking out their loved ones and
smothering them with caresses, .' Several
member of the State University Glee club
were alse admitted at the instance of Rep
resentative Lobdell and sang "The Old
Camp Gtound," "John Brown's Body," and
other familiar songs, the members and offi
cers joining in the chorus. As a kind of
interlude, while this was going on dinner
arrived and the half famished statesmen
fell to with a will, adjourning all other
proceedings until they had disposed of
their first square meal for nearly three
Douglass Makes a Speech.
At 2:45 the house was again called to
order, and G. M. Hoch was designated as
speaker pro tern. Speaker Douglass an
nounced that all except thirty of the dep
uty sergeants-at-arms would be dispensed
with. There were loud cheers for Doug
lass, and mounting a chair the speaker
made some impassioned remarks: "You
have acted," he said, "in behalf of human
liberty, in the name of' law and order in
Kansas. Yonr efforts are not lightly ap
preciated by the men of . this house, or the
Republicans and law loving people of our
state. What yon have done may not seem
much to you. bat the day will come when
you will look back and realize that you
have done your state a greater service than
had ever been done for it before."
First Adjournment for Three Days.
The speaker's sentiments were greeted
With continued cheering. Then speaker
pro tern. Hoch told bis listeners to carry
home and preserve their badges of authority,
for they were mementoes of a thrilling ex
perience, and the time would come when
K"" would again be Republican and
they could then hold leunions and trot out
those fcadges as decorations of honor.
Other speeches of a similar teuor were
made and then a motion to adjourn to this
morning was voted on and carried unani
mously after some little talk. The Repub
licans then, for the first time since Wednes
day, in a body filed out of the hall and into
Lewelling Feel Much Relieved.
While all this had been going on Gover
nor Lewelling was closeted in his office
down stairs with several nienibers of the
Populist party. The state executive looked
and acted as though a load had been lifted
from his shoulders. Some of his visitors
commended his course others upbraided
him for what they characterized as his lack
of back bona To the latter he replied that
he considered the outcome as a vindication
of his own dignity, that for the state and
for the party bloodshed would not have
been justified, and the entire matter was J
relegated where it properly belonged, to
the arbitrament of the courts.
PPOCEEDINGS IN THE COURTS.
An Injnnction Against Faying Salaries
and Dunne's Contempt Case.
The interest in the squabble is now trans
ferred to the courts. Yesterday two jurists
were hearing cases upon which hinged the
issue as to which house is the legally con
stituted body. In the district court the
motion for an injunction to prevent Treas
urer Biddle and Auditor Prather from pay
ing the salaries of the Populist members
And attaches was heard by Judge Hazen,
Attorney General Little insisted that the
court had no jurisdiction, and upon being
overruled gathered up his papers and pro
ceeded to the chambers of the supreme
court, where he filed an appeal. The dis
trict court, however, proceeded with the
hearing and it was still in progress when
the court adjourned.
Donne's HabeAS Corpus Case.
In the supreme court the habeas corpus
case of W. Dunne (not Gunn, as printed
yesterday), who was arrested for refusing
to testify before the election investigating
committee of the house, was taken up and
finally adjourned until today. The decision
in this case will also establish the legal
ity or otherwise of the Republican
house. The Populist house remained in
session throughout the dav at Trade As-
, sembly hall. A resolution was adopted
declaring an adjournment until April !,

I.AkKWoon, X. J., Feb 18. Cleveland
