respects to Secretary Elfcins at the war de
partment Saturday, their diplomatic an
tagonist, Paul Xeuman, the ex-queen's
representative, was in another part of the
building in consultation with Acting Sec
retary Wharton, of the state department,
with whom he had a long talk concerning
the object of his visit. Wharton could, of
course, do nothing, and Neuman expressed
himself as satisfied that his only chance for
successfully representini? the claims of the
ex-queen lay through the medium of con
gress. Prince David said: "We do not in
tend to make a struggle against annexa

There was not even the formality of a vote.

TOPE K A. Kan., Feb. 20. The first fight
hi the court has been decided for tbe Re

before Judge Hazen, restraining the treas
urer and auditor from paying the salaries
of the Populist bouse. A temporary in

that it could not go behind the returns.
but that it could decide a case on the cer-

A half-witted man from Cherokee City
threatened the governor that he would
shoot him on sight. The fellow was found
by the sheriff, who in spite of the fact tbat
a lunatic may shoot as straight as any one,
and is as likely to keep his word if given the
chance, let him go.i The governor refused
the services of a guard. 1 be report caused
intense excitement for a time.
Straight-out Democrats Gather.
The straight-out Democratic committee
met Saturday and declared that hereafter
there should be a straight Democratic
ticket in the field at all important elec
tions, from representative in congress
down. The committee also indorsed the

of the committee, says Martin was not
legally elected and doesn't represent the

The Populists are exceedingly chagrined
over tbe fact that the militia would not

NO SENATOR FROM WYOMING.
A Billiard Accompanied by Thunder
WILKESBARRE, Pa., Feb. 20. At 9
o'clock last night a terrific blizzard swept
over this city and vicinity, accompanied by
peals of thunder and blinding flashes of
lightning. It had been snowing all day,
and in the evening the fury of the storm

The pedestrians almost within reach ot
their own doors became confused by the
blinding snow and bad serious difficulty in
reaching places of safety. For fully half
an hour tbe blizzard raged, the mercury
going down 10 degrees. The air seemed to
be packed with flying snow, the wind
howled frightfully and the lightning
played about iu a dangerous manner.

The various colonial societies have peti-,

Prospects la the Senate.
Of the treaty now pending in the senate
Senator MicbAel.o! Oregon, w bo is a stanch
SXLeXaUon it, says he believes two-thirds
of the senators will vote for its ratification.
Senator Sherman and the Republican
members of the foreign relations commit
tee are not making any predictions at this
time. Senator Hansbrough.who has charge
of the pairs on the Republican side, says he !
believes there is a majority in favor of
ratifying the treaty, but be is not sure it
will receive the necesary two-third vote.
Senator Vest, who appears to be the most
active leader of tbe opposition, makes the
prediction that the treaty will not be
ratified before March 4.
I Vest Announces His Opposition.
Senator Vest declared his unqualified
hostility to the proposed treaty, and an
nounces his intention to try to defeat it it
he can. He says tbe closer the question is
studied the more apparent becomes the fact
that the annexation of the Sandwich isl

It is probably the intention ot the anti-

in secret session, for there Is little pros
pect ot the doors of the senate being thrown
open while the discussion is in progress.
Tbe opponents to the treaty made an effort
to have the subject discussed in open ses

The point was made that an exception to

The Legislature Doesn't Klect and tbe
Governor Cannot Appoint.
Cheyenne, Feb. 30.--The governor, if he
has the right, will appoint a senator from
this state, and he will be a Democrat, which
his name is Thompson, although A. L.
New claims that he should receive the ap
pointment. There is some doubt, however,
that tbe governor can appoint. The reasou
for action by tbe governor is that the legis
lnture adjourned early yesterdny without
Can Only Have One Senator.
But a telegram from Washington says
that the question as to the governor's right
to appoint has already been decieed in tbe
United states senate in a case similar to
this one and the governor's appointee was
not permitted to take his seat. 1 he point
is that the governor has no right to ap
point a senator at tbe beginning of a term,
and more than half of the Democratic sena
tors are on record sustaining this point.

office of secretary of agriculture in Mr.
Cleveland's cabinet, in an interview said:
"I am opposed to the Hatch anti-option
bill. What the farmers in this country
most need is protection from some of tbeir
alleged friends. It is generally said and
believed that tbe farmers are the insti
