yesterday but a single house of represen
tatives where Monday there were two.
In obedience to the mandate of the su
preme court, though under the triple pro
test of the governor, the senate and the
members of the Populist house, the Popu
list representatives have taken their seats
in the Republican house and for the first
time addressed its presiding officer as "Mr.
Speaker." The final act by which the leg
islative bodies were merged into one was
accomplished at 10 o'clock yesterday morn
ing and was as remarkable a proceeding
not to be sensational as has ever been wit
nessed in the land.
M ill Honor Blddle's Payments.
It was generally understood on both
Ides that an honorable adjustment of
financial matters would be agreed to by
the representative members, that the pay
ments made by State Treasurer Biddle
would not be contested and the members
of the Populist house paid for the time
they had served. As one Republican re
marked: "The state of Kansas more fre
quently pays two or three time3 over than
Bhe refuses to pay a just debt." The hall
of representatives was filled long before the
hour of 10 o'clock arrived. The galleries

Speaker Douglass' , gavel was heard call

requested to vacate the seats of the mem

Brown then proceeded with the roll-call.
When Lnpfer of Pawnee (Populist) was
called he said he had a protest, which he
asked the clerk to entet . ob the journal,
against being forced into the Republican
house by the decision of the supreme court,
and on goiug home intended to have it

A big row was waged in the senate dur
ing the entire forenoon session. It was
caused by the introduction of a protest by
Landis (Populist) which took issue with
the supreme court for its "partisan decis
ion," but admitting that there was no ap
peal from such an "unwarrantable decis
ion," and denying the authority of the
court to pass upon any question relating to
the organization of either house. The pro
test ended with resolutions providing that
the clerk enter bills passed or to be passed
by the Douglass house and promising to do
everything in the senate's power to redeem
the pledges made to the people.

There was barely a quorum in the house,

LOST MOST VALUABLE TIME.
Prayers That Were of 'o Avail Result In
the Loss of Many Lives.
VIENNA, March J. A sudden rise of the
River Danube has caused the loss of many
lives in Gergely, near Pako, in Hungary.
The rise of the water drove the 1,000 people
of the village out of their mud huts and
they sought shelter in the village church
and school. The water continued to rise
and the people, led by their pastor, offered
np earnest prayers for safety, and mothers
and children kneeled at the altar beseech
ing the intercession of the saints.
A Large Number Drowned.
The raging streams covered the floors
of the two buildings fud the people in a
panic rushed out into the flood. Fathers
and mothers carried their children and at

thf weak were carried away and drowned.

Philadelphia, March 1. In the midst
of a driving storm of sleet and rain, and
with the applause of the president of the
United States, three members of his cabi
net, and 10.000 others following in his
wake, the battleship Indiana was launched
shortly after noon yesterday from the ship
yard of the Cramp Shipbuilding company.
Miss Jessie Miller, daughter of Attorney
General Miller, baptized the bow of the
vessel in foaming chnmpaune as the battle
ship started down the ways, and christened
it the 'Indiana." The ship took the water
like a duck, and with her reddened hull
showing in marked contrast' against the
muddy waters of the Delaware she was
carried far out into the river by the mo
mentum acquired by her passage from the
Preparations for the Launching.
As the vessel swung broadside on toward
the shore the anchors were, let go and she
rested upon the surface of the water as
beautiful a model of marine architecture
as ever left a builder's yard. With the
coming of the morning every preparation
for the launch had been completed and the
battleship stood ready for her plunge into
the waters that are to hereafter bear her
upon their bosom. The dull brown iron
hull was painted a virginal white to the
water line, below which a vivid nil coat
ing of paint shone. A line of gay bunting
ran the vessel's length along her deck, and
above the other flags the stars and stripes
flapped and stiffened in the northeast
wind. The ship stood upon the stocks
with her great steel ram pointed in toward
A Great Throng of Witnesses.
Around the bow a platform was built
and directly beneath the keel a small en
closed space was railed off and intended
for President Harrison and the christening
party. By 11 o'clock the streets before the
gates had lecome a heaving, tossinK sea
of umbrellas, and when the doors were
finally opened the umbrellas and the own
ers beneath them swept like a torrent into
the yard. Many persons had tickets for
the launching staild p.nd the'deck of the
sister ship of the Indiana, the Massachu
setts, which stood about twenty feet away
on the stocks, and these were in a measure
protected from the storm by awnings.
Arrlvnl of the President's Party.
Upon the arrival at the works of the
presidential train the party was met by
Mr. Charles H. Cramp and escorted to the
platform at the bow of the Indiana, the
president and Mr. Cramp walking arm in
arm. An awning over the platform afford
ed protection from the elements. The
guests stood on the platform for three
quarters of an hour, while workmen
knocked away and sawed the supports
from under the battle ship. Hydraulic
jacks were in readiness at the bow for use
should the ship stick, but these were not
needed and at 1S:40 p. m., the vessel glided
swiftly down the ways. Alter the launch
the presidential party were escorted to the
office of the company, where an informal
banquet was given. President Harrison
did not make any address nor did any
other person present.
SHE IS AN OCEAN TERROR.
Our Most Powerful Marine Knglne of
Destruction So Far.
The Indiana is the first of the first-class
battleships to be launched. She is &1S feet
long on the -water-line, and is 59 feet 3
inches beam. Her displacement is 10,400
tons, but with a full supply of coal and
stores on board she will draw 24 feet and
displace 11.000 ton of water. She will be
propelled by ttwin screws, and her engines
will be three in number, having 10,000
horse power. The engines will be of the
triple expansion type, and will be built
abieastin water-tight compartments, and
will give a speed of from l.V to 16 knots,
I he guaranteed speed being 15 knots.
Has a Mighty Tough Hide.
The armor will be made as nearly imper
vious to shot as it. can be made. The
water line armor belt will be of eighteen
inch nickel steel and will ixtndl96 feet
along each side amidships. At the end of
the armor belt is an armored bulkhead
athwartships which fa to be fourteen inch
es thick and above that and the water line
is to be a casemate belt five inches thick.
Above the athwarthip licit will be two
redoubts, one at lach end, forming the
basis of the revolving turrets. These re
doubts will be thirty-four feet and six
inches outside diameter and twelve feet
high. Over the armor lelt and over the
bow and stern will be a flat protected deck
plated with two-inch steel.
Description of Her Batteries.
At each of the four corners of the five
inch casemates rises up a redoubt eight
feet high and plated with eight-inch steel.
The redoubts will be surmounted by tur
rets eight inches thick and besides the
armored turrets there is to be an armored
pilothouse or conning tower. The total
weight of the armor is to be 2,685 tons.
The armament or the Indiana will be as
follows: Fonr 13-inch guus, forty feet
Ionic, mounted in pairs in the two main
turrets; eight 8-inch gum., mounted in

the casemates; four 6-inch guns, mounted
in broiidside with splinter bnlkheads back
of them; twenty 6-pounders and rapid-firing
guns; eight l- o;ind -rs aud Gatling
guns and six torpedo trlH-s.

His Holiness Has Hopes.
Rome, March 1. The pope bade a cour

His holiness said he hoped soon to see Eng
land once mote a Koman Catholic country.
The faithful ought to pray for the speedy
consummation of this hope, of which there
were already many signs. The pope warmly
commended the lofty spirit of justice shown
by the queen and parliament in granting
to all Koman Catholics of her majesty's
vast empire complete freedom of religion.
