Mt night'rf ratification which broftght Bo many Republican politicians to Tope ka has reultivl in the fight for the or ganization of the house of representa tives being opened seven weeks ahead of tiLae. There are already five fully Hedged can didates for speaker and there may be more who have determined to be dark horses. But this ha.- been a bad year for dark horses. Kansas Republicans this year demand a fre open light. Mr. C E. Lobdell, the young lawyer from Dightoti, Lane county, who was chairman of the judiciary committee in the Douglass house, is a candidate, and J. K. C'ubbisoa of Kansas City. Ivans., the well known orator, is doing all in his power to convince the other representa tives that lie would make the best pre siding officer. The third candidate is Mr. S. S. Bene dict of Fredonia, Wilson count-. Mr. Bene lict is a tall man with iron grey hair and beard. He was not a member of tii i last lions, but he has been in the legislature and has served two terms as state senator. Mr. J. V. Biekman of Arkansas City, is also a candidate lor speaker, and he is popular wuh tie politicians. The only serious object. on to his candidacy is that Cowley county has two candidates for state printer which may interfere with his aspirations. CoL Alex. Warner of Cherokee county, otie of the lighting members of the last house, is mentioned as a candidate for si Baker. Col. Warner was one of the men who were the active participants in the settlement of the difficulties between the two hou-sei in the last legislature, and after the war was over he captured the doors leading to representative hall which were brttered down with Speaker Djngiass' sledge- hammer.

The 1 iirt oi nimes given in yesterday's Journal in coinection with the appoint ments to be uiii.l-s under the coming Re publican aim mstration is not intended to represent al the persons mentioned as actual caudidttes for the several posi tions, but the names published are amonif those v.ho have been and are be ing mention jd by their friends for the appointments. An intimate friend of ex-Secretary of State William Higgins said today that -Mr. Higgins will not accept any appoint ment under M ij r .Morrill's admtnistra tio:i tat he (au't afford to go back iiito pol itics. J. Urtjco Lynch who was a candidate for state treasurer two years ago and has been rnentioael as a candidate for rail road c unniissioner, has eutered the list of apj. licants fir warden of the peniten tiary and he is being warmly supported for that position by his friends. D.ivH V. MuSvatie says he will not ac cept an appointment uuder the coming administration and his friends who have been using his name in connection with a place on the board of public works have done so without consulting him. S. . Winn who has been named in the list of applicants for a clerkship in the auditor's office, says the use of his name by his ftiends is wholly unathor iz d; that he is not a candidate, wants no political office and is just now well sat isfied with his growing business. -M aj or Morrill says he has not yet con sidered any of the applications for ap pointments and that he himself has made no promises. The governor-elect went to Leavenworth tjday and will go from th-re to his home at Hiawatha, where he will spend mos: i f his time between now and the assemt ling of the legislature. IHtKIDtMHAL WILL STAY. Hi Term I auk Commissioner i for four Year. A story was circulated a few days a?o that Hank Ccmmissioner Breidenth'al, Superintendent of Insurance Snider and the other appointive oilieers whose terms do not expire January 1, had agreed to voluntarily giv-j up their otlices and re tire to private life. That story was, however, without foundation as Chairman Breidenthal said tu a mte Journal reporter: "Jlv un derstanding U, that my term of cilice as I a:ik commissioner does not expire for two ye ars from next January. 1 was ap pointed for a term of four years and my appointment was confirmed by the sen ate. I was the llrst commissioner to be appointed uuier the present law. Charles P. Johnson was only a de facto commissioner. If his ap pointment had been confirmed by the senate he would still be filling the office. 1 fail to see why 1 should turn my office over. It there were any charges agaiust me, if the patrjns cf the banks or the bankers tlieuiotives have any complaint tJ make as to my administration oT the affairs of the ol.ice, it would be different. If there were imy charges against me I would resign at once. "My o'iice would be turned over tomorrow. "There is no question but that Gov ernor Lewellii g can during the lirst w eek i:i January reappoint Jtide Snider i superintendent of insurance aud if WHO FOR SPEfi iKEH? his appointment e". oul i be connrmed by the senate, as it no dout-t would be. the Republicans could not yet him out ex ctJDt for cause." OXK WAY TO MA Kit TROUBLE Eewellingr Will lie Governor For sl Week Alter tlie Legislature fleets. It so happens, as it did when Governor Humphrey succeeded Governor Martin, that the legislature convenes several days before the governor is inaugurated, 1 he legislature will meet on the sec ond Tuesday, January 8, and the gover nor will take his seat on the second Mon day. January 14. (jovernur Lewellintr will be governor a week after the legislature meets. Several Popuiist politicians, who are sore over their defeat, are at work on a scheme to luAa Governor Lewelling, during the first week of his administra tion, fill about fifty or- sixty appointive offices, the terms of which expire in Jan uary. They argue that if the governor will consent to this, the Populist sena'e will contirm his appointments, and the Republican administration will be crip pled at the start by having a lot of office seekers on hand and nothing to give them.

He noticed all the po.iticiaus in the dining room laughed, bat hu did not "catch on:" ho afterwards learned that the cause of the laughter was that Col. P. 13.

Tlie Flayrtafl on IIepi:hii':t;i Headquarters Stia anil tlie Flaji- Falls. In the midst of the jubilee over the recent victory yesterday afternoon an event occurred to somewhat mar the serenity of the occasion. About 3 o'clock while the wind was blowing a gale the lartre flag staff over Republican state headquarters suddenly snapped and the emblem of liberty, which Chairman Breidenthal of the Populist state central committee had given the victors, was trailed in the dust. The gag-staff broke about half way up and tha stars ai.d stripes went down. A hard-working Republican who wit nessed the incident trapped, "That might have been a bad omen it it had happen ed three weeks ago, tut it is too late now.7' The captured bunting was not rescued from its fallen position and the wind whipped it on the gravel roof all night lung.

National Coal Miners' Organization to Stop Work. Pittsburg, Pa., Nov. 14. The pros pect of another national coal miners strike grows certain. The reduction fever among the operators spread east war d today, and the Clearfield district is now coucerned. Bell, Lewis & Yates, who employ 2,000 men at Dubois and Dubois and Reynoldsville, posted notices that on account of lower prices in min ing in competitive districts the firm is compelled to force a reduction to 33 cents per net ton. The price now being paid is 40 cents and prior to tha great strike last spring it was 45 cents. Tlie Berwind-White mining company in the same dstrict, employing 0,300 men, will probably follow this example of reduction, and a general lowering of the scale rate in this district will result. The operators in the Pittsburg district have threatened to make reductions and will now probably be forced lo this end. I'NION" MEN' LOCKED OUT.

McCabe and Henry Engell of the city engineer's department who were discharged yesterday by tne mayor turned over tlie keys of the otlice to the city clerk, but they refuse to recogn.za the right ol the mayor to remove them. Eugeil has been acting as sewer in spector in the construction of the sewer now being built in district 17 and when he quit yesterday the contractor quit worfi on the sewer. Acting upon the ad vice of members of the council Engell went to work this morning, and the sewer force is agaiu at work. The sewer is Hearing completion, and there is only about another week's work in it. It was reported last night that Ritchie would lay no more sidewalk under his contract until a city engineer was ap pointed, but the furce is at work this morning. McCabe went to work this morning measuring the sidewalks al ready laid by Ruchie.' Mayor Harrison said this morning that he had received no information that Mc Cabe and Lugell had refused to recog nize his authority to discharge them. He eays that neither of the men were ap pointed by the mayor after the sa!ar3' or dinance letting them out was approved in February. "The only question will be," said he, '"wtiether the men can col lect their pay for work done since their discharge." HAD TO SHELL OUT. How tlie M. K. V T. Itobbers Collect ed Their I5ooty. Kansas City, Nov. 14. Passengers on the .!., K. & T. train which was robbed near Muskogee last night gave more par ticulars of the hold-up when the train arrived here. Wagner Car Conductor Murphy was given a gunny sack by the bandits and compelled to walk ahead of them. Two robl ers followed behind them with lev eled guns. The passenpers were re quired to divest themselves of money and jewels and drop them into the sack. They were rather lenient about it, not de manding a show down from anybody but appearing satisfied when the passenger dropped the first roll he laid hands on. The Wanner passengers were nil in their berths and the car was quite dark. The robbers ordered more light and made Murphy do the talking necessary to convince the passengers that they had better give up. The passengers in the day coaches were not molested. Some of the victims were: W. li Hushes of Kan sas City, gold watch and $10.00. Bert Wilkins of Omaha, Neb., on h'13 way from San Antonio with his brother and sister. tflS. N. G. Roberts of Houston, Texas, gave $3.50. J. W. Springer, Dallas, Texas, gold watch worth $75, a double gold chain, a diamond locket and 10 in cash. J.

MOB SPIHITjjOT DEAD People at Washington Court House Are Still Excited. Col. Coit is Afraid to to Testify. Go There WOULD LYNCH HIM. Lawabiding People Are Afraid to Sav Anything. Two Alternatives Are Presented by the Case. Either Law or Mob Spirit Must Have the Victory. Columbus, O., Nov. 14. Great events are brewing at Washington Court House. Colonel Coit declines by advice of his attorneys, to go to Fayette county to be a witness to the coroner as to the part the Fourteenth Ohio national guard took in obedience of orders from Governor 31c Kinley to assist Sheriff Cook in protect ing Dolby, a negro, who confessed to criminal assault and who had been sen tenced to twenty years in the peniten tiary. In giving that protection four persons were killed and about a dozen wounded by the military firing upon the mob when it had broken open the doors of the court house to get the negro. Colonel Coit's attorney, Hon. George K. Nash, and Henry J. Booth, assures the governor that Coit's life would bo placed in jeopardy by going. The coro ner declines to come to Columbus to take Coit's deposition, insisting that he shall go there. Leading law-abiding citizens of Washington Court House, have as sured the governor privately that if Coit j were to gb t here, he and Snerill Cook, no j doubt, would be thrown into jail, charged i with murder, after which the coroner would become sheriff ex-oilicio, and that men whose friends were killeil would ride the country and ttatlier a mob, and both Coit and t ook and especially Coit would be dragged from the jail and lynched. Governor McKinley has assured Col onel Coit that if he were to go and harm were offered the whole power of the state and nation, if necessary, would be sent to his support. Colonel l oil's reply to that is: "What good would that do my wife and family aiter I had been jailed or lynched?" Lieutenant Colonel N. V. P. Darrow,a graduate of West Point but now a citi zen here and an officer of the 14th Ohio national " guards, eaid to the governor that the regiment would not suffer Coit to be injured and asked the gov ernor to detail au escort to protect him. Pending this conversation and while the governor was coustdering some plan by which the sending of the military might be averted, Colonel Dar row said : 'Governor, the detail from the Four teenth desires to go with your official sanction. If you cannot see your way clear to give such auction I will have the regimeit uo as individuals and with guns, to protect the colonel in case harm is offered." j In that event and if such trouble were to occur and blood be spiilled, the men, it ; would seem, might be indicted for mur der or shooting with intent to kill. The situation is very grave. It is so grave, indeed, that the representative of the Associated Press cannot give the names of the law-abiding and well known men at Washington Court House whom he has seen privately and who are conferring privately with the officers of the state. Attorneys at Washington Court House, w ho say that the irovernor and military did right in maintaining the law, absolutely refuse to assist in the legal defense of Coit because it would be tantamount to making arrangements to practice law in some other country. All law-abidinir mouths in Washington Court House are still as death. The other side is doing all the talking. The question which ia confronting the governor is: Shall a aherilf, elected and sworn to execute law, and a colonel, or dered to hi assistance, be sacrificed for doing their official duty. lie v. Dr. Gladden, who denounced the mob in a letter to the Columbus Dis patch, declines to give out for publica tion letters received from Washington Court House from both sides, because of the fact that the writers would be made to suffer by members of the mob. He was threatened with assassination if he came there for any purpose. He burned that letter. It is mentioned to show the feeling at the place. Publication of all these events is made here today. . GEN. CLAY ON GUARD. He Will "Sot Let Anyone Come Near Ills Young liride. Lexington', Ky., Nov. 14. White Hail, the castle of General Cassius M. Clay, is closed to all visitors today, the general having placed his son, Lonnie, in command, with instructions to allow no one to disturb him. None of the neighbors dare venture on the premises in the face of these instructions. General Clay is fearful that some harm may come to his bride and will not allow her to leave the house. Dr. C. C. Smith carried away to Richmond yesterday some documents, which give rise to the story that General Ciay had made a new will. The- .Vational Grange Meet.
