this morning disarranged the pro

'Marshal Lord Roberts, and it was an
hour aCter the appointed time when he
arrived The :inthusiasm of the large
concourse of peOple, however, was in no
way damnenej by the thick pall of
mist, and amid' sceneS of great jubila
'OM commingled with cheering and the
singing of patriotic airs in accompani
ment of the halals of music Lord Rob
crts landed and drove through the pro
fusely decorated streets to the Hartley
in.tit me, where' the mayor, surrounded
by the members of the corporation in
full robes of odice, presented him with
the freedom of the city in a gold casket.
The institute was crowded to its ca
pacity, and there was a remarkable
demonstration as the tield marshal, in
the uniform of -his rank. stepped on a
raised. platform. The proceedings were
most brief. Lord Roberts, in a feat
words of thanks, referred to the war in
terms similar to those which he used
yesterday. On returning to the railroad
station be was greeted with continuous
plaudits from the assembled throngs.
At 11:30 a. m. the held marshal's train
started for London.
London, Jan. 3.Crowds of people
flocked to pointS of vantage along the
route to be followed by Lord Roberts
from Paddington station to Bucking

the morning. but the numbers in no way
compared with those that gathered at
the demonstration in honor of the re

Fears of the riotous behavior and dis

troops. in addition to thousands of peo

streets, and were concentrated In the

rushes,
Lord Roberts reached Paddington sia
tinn only tm-enty minutes behind the

.,aloon carriage to the platform of the
elab,;rately decorated railroad station he
was greeted by the Prince of Wales. the
Princess et Wales. the Duke and Duchess
of York. theiuke of Connaught and the
Doke tit Cambridge. The members of the
royal family shook hand, heartily with
the field marshal. while the bands played
t he na I iona 1 anthem. The Princess of

The hotels and other buildings were all

HOUSE SUAPRISED
Olmstead Stirs Up the Demo
crats With a Resolution.
Subsidy Bill Displaced by Army
Measure in Senate.
'Washington, Jan. 3.When the house
reassembled today after the, holiday recess-
not more than 75 members were
present. It had been arranged before
the house met that the consideration of
the reapportionment bill was ta be en
tered upon today.
Immediately after the reading of the
journal, Mr. Olmstead (Pa.) sprung a,
surprise by offering as a matter of priv
ilege a resolution reciting' the alleged
abridgement of the rig,ht to vote in
Louisiana. Mississippi, South Carolina.
and North Carolina, ,and instructing'
the committee on census to inquire into
the subject and report the facts to the
h,:urse.
The reading of the resolution caused
a. flurry on the Democratic side. Eefore
it had proceeded far, Mr Richardson
(Tenn.), the minority leader, jumped to
his feet and interrupted the reading to
ask' whether the resolution required
unanimous consent.
dt does not," replied the speaker. "It
is offered as a, matter of privilege::
-I make the, point that the resolution
does not constitute a matter of privi
lege," said Mr. Richardson.
-The reading has not proceeded far
enough to determine that point," said
the speaker.
Mr. Richardson took his seat, but be
fore the clerk could proceed, Mr. Un

11.1M. IN THE SENATE.
Washington, Jan. fl.At the first SeS
sion of the senate in the Twentieth Cen
tury business was resumed 'without the
appearance of a break in the continuity
of the proceedings. The work was taken
up just where it was left off when con
gress took a recess for the holidays.
Notwithstanding the fact that the hoi
Mays had scarcely ended,the attendance
at the opening' session was notably
large. President Pro Tempore Frye
called the senate to order. The time
just before the session convened and
just after, was occupied by rnany sena
tors in the exchange of greetings. That
was the only evidence that there had
be(.,n a recess.
The senate proceeded to the considera
tion of the army reorganization bill,
Consideration 15 tO be limited to the

ton managers were "trying to make an
early show of strength yesterday a,1-
though they denied it. If they were not
using every endeavor tn have their sup
porters here the old politicians are sad
ly fooled. The explanation that the Bur
ton men gave yesterday for the sudden
rush of Burton followers was that such
a. great majority of the members were
for Burton that thirty members could
not come ,to the city without checking'
up at least twenty for Burton.
They had a meeting in Burton's head
quarters last night and tried to stir up
a little enthusiasm among the boys,"
but they refused to enthuse. The show
ing they had made after their effort to
get a big crowd here took away the
enthusiasm, for it turned out that of the
thirty-two members who were pledged
to support one cr the other of the sen
atorial candidates, fifteen were for
Baker. The meeting lasted for about
an hour and the only result WilS that a.
cloud of uncertainty- arose over the
members who were before sure that
they were on the winning side.
It is more evident than ever today
that the fig,ht is open to any one and
that neither Burton nor Baker has more
than a righting chance. The tendency
of the members to listen to "dark horse"
talk is, more pronounced than ever and
the managers of both senatorial aspir
ants are worried a,bout it, although they
profess ,to,be certain of the success or
t,her candidate.
It is told on the quiet and vouched for
by men- who are not given to telling
fables tha,t the Burton managers are
attempting' to get members who have
not been instructed, but are favorable to
him to sign papers to the effect that
they will support Burton. It is rumored
that one of the members did sign a Bur
ton paper last night.
A member who is uninstructed said
this morning- that he had been taken up
on the top of the mountain by the Bur
ton managers and had been shown the
broad expanse of the county he repre
sented and had been told that it was all
his if he would only come into their
camp. He refused to express his "prefer
ence. however, and said he expected to
have another county added to it before
night by the men who are offering any
thing in the patronage line although
they claim to have more than enough
votes to secure the place in the senate.
The talk of Judge ...Johnston of the su
pretne court as a dark horse possibility
is looming Up again today and is causing.
a great deal of uneasiness on both sides.
The boomers of Baker and Burton have
a nem pted to kill the dark horse talk.
but it will not down and today is more 1
evident than ever. Johnston is not posing
as a candidate, but he has not rim in the
house and barred the door, and it Is pos.,
sible for good neighbors to enter and talk
to him on the subject.
It is said that Cy Leland. who has a.
reputation for lighting easily, is quietly
lending aid to the Johnston movement.
-whieli is in ellarge of Attorney General
Godard. in anticipation that things may
go that way. Leland Will stay by Baker
ftS long as he has a chance to win. hut
some of the old politicians say that Le
land has seen the writing on the wall and
think he has interpreted it correctly. If
Baker is unable to land the prize, It is
believed by the politicians generally that
the :Baker anti Leland factions will get
together on Jonhston.
The Burton men say that if a combina
tion of that kind was attempted M. A
Low would take a hand and spoil the
plan. They do not state just when I,ow
was appointed guardian angel of the Bur
ton interests.
The Burton members claim
from the following members who mi.&re
here last night:
Sweet of Coffey. Hefley of Osborne,
Short of Cloud. Henley of Douglas. Jol
niTe marion. Dougherty of Harvey,
Snyder of Chase, Grosser of Dickinson, ,
"Ward of -Wallace, Cave of Haskell. Fitz
patrick of Chautauqua. Millar of Barber,
Nichols of Woodson, EilITTIOTIS IllieN,
:McKeever of Shavvnee. Betts of Shawnee.
Chaney of Shawnee and Morehouse uf
Morris. who arrived this morning, making
a. total of 38.
The members who were here last night
and were claimed by the Baker :people
were:
-Willetts of Wilson. Remington of .Mi
fIrrii. Allen of DonPthan. 'Vincent ef Reno,
Hayden of Nemaha. Finley of Franklin.
hingard of Franklin. -Wulfekultier of
Leavenworth. Markhert of Leavenworth,
Hund of Leavenworth. Sarbach of Jack,
son. Griffin of Jefferson. Edwards of Dort
iphan, Bonne!! of Brown: total. 15.
The Burton people say that the four
Baker men from Leavenworth were tele
graphed for yesterday morning when it
became evident that a majority of the
members here were for Burton-.
-With all the talk about Burton and
Baker, who have practically monopo
lized the senatorial situation. not only
for months, but for years, there is a.
marked lack of enthusiasm upon, the
part of the Republican public and many
of the members of the legislature.
There is a widespread feeling not only
of indifference to both Mr. Baker and
Mr. Burton. but of positive force that a
r,ew man should be sent to the United
States senate.
There is considerable quiet talk g-oing
on to the effect that all interests might
happily unite upon Charles S. Gleed,
He would make an ideal senator.
Reared in Kansas, he has thorough
knowleci.ge of the needs and resources
of the state. Probably no man has a
wider acquaintance with the people of
Kansas; no Kansan has a, larger circle
of personal and business- friends in the
country at large.
He is thoroughly representative not
only of the younger political element,
but is identified with the pioneers in
the political and -Inaterial welfare of
this, one of the younger of the states.
Ile is a fine speaker; a, man successful
In accomplishing results, and combines
many of the superb qualifications of
Plumb and Ingalls. He is not seeking',
the office so far as known, and may
not be in close touch with the politicians
ho have been pulling the wires for
Baker or Burton.- But none of thes;.s
adherents could make any objection to
a man like C. S. Gleed. and they could
probably unite upon him more easily
than upon any other possible factor.
Clean, capable, a-nd popular, his name in
this connection would create enthu
siasm and admiration leading tO Et
happy outcome.
Cil ICKERING'S WIDOWS.
Four 'Women Claim the Estate of a
Plainfield, Conn., Man.
NeW Haven, Jan. 1The question as
to how many widows C. H. Chickering,
the former proprietor of the Plainfield
(Conn.) hotel leaves is one that is likely
to keep the courts busy for some time to
come. Chickering- was found dead in
Albion yesterday, and there are thus far
four claimants for his estate front wo
men who show certificates of their mar
riage to him.
Chickering appeared in Plainflecl last
summer ard bought the hotel, and, on
account of his address and popularity,
soon became a leading light in the vil
lage. There was a woman with him who
he said was his housekeeper. I-le disap
peared on election day just as the sher
iff arrived to attach his person.
His housekeeper claimed to be his
wife. and three days later a woman
from Springfield, Masa, arrived with
the same claim. It was then stated that
Chickering was engaged to marry the
daughter of a. well known farmer in the
district.
Since then two other women haVe ap
peared in search of their missing- spouse,
and there was a general reunion toda,y
over the body in Albion.
Chickering was killed by a freight
train v,-hile walking on the railroad
track

Friends Shocked at the Report
of His Death.
Detroit, Jan. 3.--Bishop W. X. Xinde,
aged 68 3-ears, of the Methodist Episco
pal church, was found (lead in his bed
at his home here today. It is thought
the cause of death was heart trouble.
He attended a funeral yesterday anti
caug-ht a cold. The deceased had been
a bishop of the Methodist Episcopal
church since 1884 and was known
throughout the -United States.
Prior to his election as a, bishop he
was pastor of the Central Methodist
Episcopal church here and was at one
time a missionary in India.
He leaves a wife, three sons and one
daughter. One son, Edward, is a Metho
dist minister at Ann Arbor. His daugh

The other sum George, is also ill at his
home here.
Yesterday the presiding elders of
Michigan held a conference here and
decided to sell the episcopal residence
here, now occupied by Bishop Ninde's
family because the churches of Michi
gan outside of Detroit and other cities
failed to contribute sufficient funds to
maintain it.
BISHOP NINDE IN TOPEKA.
Bishop William X. Nintle was station
ed at Topeka, eight years, from 1884 un
til 1892.
It was at the general conference of the
Methodist ministers at Philadelphia, that
he was elected bishop and his first as
signment following his election to that
office was to Topeka,.
This position was filled by him with
great credit and it was at the general
conference in 1892 at Omaha when lie
was sent to Detroit where he died.
T. B. Sweet, of this city, knew Bishop
Ninde twenty-tive years ago when -he
lived in Cincinnati. He was then tha
pastor of St. Paul's church.
He left this pastorate to become pres
ident of tbe theological department of
the Methodist school at Evanston,
the Northwestern university.
Representing that conference he Visi
ted Topeka. in 1880 when the general
conference was held here.
Since being made a bishop, Mr. Ninde
has made two trips abroad. One was to.
Corea., and the last time, about twil
years before his departure from Topeka,
he made the trip around the world, ac
companied by his only daughter, Miss
Mary.
At the conference at Cleveland in 1896
Bishop Ninde was put in charge of the
Epworth League of the United States
He held that position for four years, be
ing relieved of that duty by the last
conference which was held in Chicago
last summer.
- T. B. Sweet said: "I have known
Bishop Ninde for nearly 30 years and ir:
all that time I never saw him impatienr.
but once. It -was at a meeting of the
general conference in Philadelphia. He
had just gotte,n out of bed from a sick
ness, and I felt that he was unable to
stand the strain the conferenco work
would necessitate and I remonstrated
with -him. Ile persisted in working
however."
P. Bonebrake, when told of the
bishop's death by a. State JOUrnal re
porter expressed regret at the fact.
Bishop Ninde and Mr. Bonebrake were
neighbors during the time Mr. Ninde
lived in Topeka and were great friends.
-Fames A. Troutman WAS also told of
the death by a. reporter. He said:
-Bishop Ninde was an excellent man.
He was one of the best orators the state
has ever known."
Bishop Ninde received his education
in one of the early Methodist colleges at
Middletown, Conn.

SEVEN FEET OF SNOW.
Worst Storm in Tett Years Visits
Southern Oregon
Ashland, Ore., Jan. 3.The worst snow
storm since the winterof18S9-90throughout
southern Oregon and northern Cal
ifornia. has raged during the last 24
hours. Telegraph and telephone com
munication have been paralyzed. The
Sciuthern Pacific has experienced great
difficulty in k?eping its track clear be
tween Ashland and Dunsmuir.
The EnOW plows have befi.o working
continuously on the Siskiyou where the
lerW is seven feet deep on the level and
14 feet in the cuts and drifts, and the
rotary plow is nOW working, north from
Dunsmuir. All passenger trains have
been able to get through five and six
hours behind schedule time, but all
freight trains are annulled. The storm
center appears to have been on the
south side of the Siskiyou extending as
far as the canyon of the Sacramento,
with much drifting of the ST1OW on the
south side of the mountains, while on
the Oregon side it is wet and does not
drift. The following is the snow fall at
the principal points in the track of the
storm:
Ashland, 1'2 inches; Jacksonville, 13
inches; Yerka, feet; Sisson, 5 feet;
Dunsmuir, 5 feet; Siskiyou. 7 feet.
Indications at present are that the
backbone of the storm is broken. In
northern point"; of the Rogue river val
ley it is gTov,.ing warmer and raining.
