The Beaalt or tne Caaeu.es at ths Capitol Last Nirht No Contesting mr. Hoy t TJnaninsonslr C'noaen Clinton B. Darts tbe Democratic Nominee. Special to the Journal and Oovbikr Habtfobd, Jan. 4. The representatives of both political parties, members-elect of the General Assembly, were on hand in full force at the State Capitol to-night, when the can cases were held, and dryer or less exciting or interesting oauouses seldom have taken place in the Capitol eity. There was really no con testing from the beginning to the close of the sessions, exoept in the case of the assistant clerk nominee in the Republican House. The" Democratic House caucus was held in the Senate chamber. It was twenty minntes late in getting together. "Mr. Bertram, of Sharon, was appointed chairman and John E. Sosnlan, of Hartford, clerk. The name of Clinton B. Davis, of Middlesex, was the only one mentioned for the Democratic speaker ship. ' and he was so chosen. William Jamison, of Middlesex, received the nomina tion for clerk, William J. Beeoher, of New town, that of assistant clerk. It was then moved and Seconded to appoint a committee ot tnree rrom tne members of tbe House to propare ballots for the election of State offi cers on Thursday. Gesrge M. Gnnn, of Milford, and John H. Griffin, of Middle town, were then nominated as a committee whose duty it shall be to call caucuses. Before the members-elect adjourned the newly nomi nated Speaker, Clinton B. Davis, favored the caucus with his thanks for his -nomination. The caucus then adjourned. The Republican House caucus very prompt ly assembled. It met in Representatives' hall. Representative Thompson, of East Haven, was appointed ohairman. Messrs. Holmes, of BidgeSeld, and Bartholomew, of Derby, were appointed olerk and assistant clerk re spectively. Tellers appointed were: Messrs. Oandee of Suffield, Roach of Middletown, Bates of Putnam and Morgan of Groton. Representative Higgins, of Greenwich, pro posed the name of Colonel Hoyt, of Green wich, for Speaker. Representative Higgins said in proposing Colonel Hoyt's name for the nomination: "Gentlemen of the House, I take exceedingly great pleasure in presenting to yen the name of Colonel Hoyt. He is a man well known by you all. He has served unfailingly and faithfully the Assembly, the State and his fellow-citizens. His char acter for integrity, uprightness and honesty no one can dispute, and I feel " sure if he is nominated he will be duly elected to the office, which he can, I warrant yon, fill both ably and efficiently."' Mr. Shqmway, of Killingly, seconded Mr. Higgins' nomination. He said: "I second the nomination of the gentleman from Green wich because I know Colonel Hoyt to be eminently fitted for the position that I feel sore this canons will nominate him to. I am voicing the unanimous sentiment of the eastern section of the State when I eulogize Colonel Hoyt." The motion to nominate Colonel Hoyt for Republican Speaker of the House was put and carried, receiving no dis senting vote. The chair declared nominations in order for a clerk. Representative Shumway, of Killingly, spoke very highly of W. J. McConville, of Hartford. He is well fitted for the arduous duties of a clerk of the House and there is no doubt he will fill that office to perfection. The motion was car ried and Mr. McConville was declared nom inated for clerk. So far the nominations hsd met with no opposition, but in the choosing of an assistant clerk there was con siderable interest and spirit manifested. The candidates for assistant clerk were L. A. Eddy of North Canaan, L. L. Plummer of Killingly and Clarence E. Jones of New Hart ford. The contest lay between the first two gentlemen. The prevailing impression be fore the ballot was taken was that Mr. Eddy would receive the nomination. Last year for the same office Mr. Eddy came very near being victorious. This rear his friends oame to the caucus determined to nominate him for the' office by all means. Mr. Eddy wss first eulogized. Representa tive Steele, of Torrihgton, presented his name to the caucus in well chosen and well spoken words of eulogy. He said: "Gen tlemen of the caucus, I know that if you elect to the assistant clerkship Mr. Eddy you will have just the right man for the right place. We who present his name to yon to night are glad to know him. He has served his country snd fellow men most faithfully and efficiently. He commands my respect and the respect of all the gentlemen from Litchfield county. He is a farmer and I think you would: do well to elect a farmer to the assistant . clerkship. Litchfield county, 1 think, has this office due her." She has never had a clerk in the House and but one assistant clerk. We claim some rights and yon will- agree, gentlemen, we ought to have the office." Representative Shumway,- of Killingly, arose and proceeded to speak in glowing terms of Mr. Leroy I. Plummer, of Killing ly. for the position of - assistant clerk. The locality claim was strongly pressed in Mr. Plnmmer's behalf by Mr. Shumway. He said: "Mr. Plummer is in every way well qualified for the office for which I propose his name. He is a young man of decided and recognized ability and ' would make an excellent clerk. He is backed by all the prominent Republicans of the eastern section of Connecticut." A vote was taken and resulted as follows: Whole number of votes cast 139; necessary for a choice 70; S. A. Eddy 95; L,. I. Plum mer 44. Mr. Eddy was declared elected as sistant clerk. - It was voted to nominate tiev. O. P. Smith, of Hartford, chaplain. A committee of eight, one from each county, were next appointed a commit tee to call future cansuses. They are Heze- kiah R. Sheldon, Hartford county; Mr. Bran son, New London; John S. Morgan, Wind ham; Milton A. bhumway, .Latohneld; Mr. Morey, Middlesex; Rufus G. Shepherd, Fair field; A. F. Higgins, Tolland. A committee of one from each county was then appointed to nominate door-tenders and messengers. The caucus then . ad journed. The committee appointed for aoor-tenaers Charles P. Fitch, George L. Carey, E. S. Seabry, D. S. Simmons, George F. Tyler, N. S. Buckland. Messengers: David B. Mansfield, David Broderick, W. S. Hooper, Daniel K. HiiL . The Democratic Senators met in the Sen ate ante-room and nominated ex-Lieutenant Governor Hyde for president pro tern. The Republican Senators met in the Sen ate chamber. Senator Walsh was nominat ed for president pro tern, and Austin Brain- erd, of East Haddam, for clerk, and the Bev. D. G. Downey chaplain. They nomi nated committees. Polo Last Might.

The New England Journal of Education prints a sketoh of Prof. William R. Harper, recently appointed to the chair of . scientific languages at the University of Yale, in which occurs the following account of his earlier studies: He was born in Concord. O., July 2e, 1856. He took to learning early and graduated from Musk iogum college Fa bis native town at the age of four teen. The colleee was a small one. but it was at hand and he used it, as every student should use his college, not to end, but to begin the pursuit of knowledge. After graduation he spent three years at home in study, principally of language. He read tne on IK oi tne l-Aiin ana ureea uteratures. rue historians, poets, philosophers and orators of whose writings we study fragments in the regular college course, and others besides, he traversed at length. At this time he acquired also prac tical use of German and French and all tbe languages of southern Europe with something of .the Scandinavian. As yet he had no definite plan for his future, and his strong passion for music almost led him to choose it as nis spnere oi proiessionat activity; out a wise paternal discernment of his capacities cent him to Yale, where he pursued graduate courses of study, largely in language Latin and Oreek Gothic ivith Professfor Carter. Hebrew with Professor Day and Sanscrit with Profeesor Whitney. In two yars, at the age of nineteen.he received the degree of Ph. D. Now, with formed tastes, he sought to know where, as a philologist, he might best direct his energies. Professor Whitney told him that the Semitic Held was comparatively unworked and that with the then dawning interest in Assyriology there was a splendid epportunity for the scientific pur suit of the Oriental languages and for promotion of interest in them. In this sagacious counsel the key note of his future was sounded. HAMJWSASSKTT'S WIGWAM. The Red Men's Grand Powwow and Council Fire Last Night.

Wallace 4c Sons' Eleetrle Carbon Shop Destroyed ny Fire Loss Twenty-five Thousand Dollars. Yesterday forenoon about 10:30 o'clock fire was discovered in the electrio carbon shop of Wallace & Sons in Ansonia. The flames spread rapidly and soon the entire building was wrapped in flames. Eagle hose respond ed promptly to the alarm and soon had three streams on the fire. When the fire reached a portion of the building in which were stored many barrels of tar the flames shot upward to a great height and the heat was intense. It was difficult to reach this part of the building, but the firemen after an boar's hard work had the fire under control. The weather was so cold that many of the firemen had their fingers frozen and. others were drenched with water which froze on them. The building was of wood and was about 60 by 30 and two stories high. In ths building was a large amount of stock and valuable machinery, all of which was destroyed. The department worked hard and by their efforts succeeded in saving many adjacent buildings. The loss is estimated at from $20,000 to $30, 000, all of whieh is covered by insurance. The origin of the fire is supposed to have been the accidental dropping ot a piece of hot iron into a pot of tar. HOIHE FOR THE FRIENDLESS. . The Annaal Donation Day Is Next Thursday.
