Tho Republican bona tors hae boon sumtnonod to Now York by Mr.. Plntt. and those who wore here have gone to that city. It is ln their power to provont tho organization of the Bernite by leav ing the btato or by not being sworn In. Tholr original plan Is ohangod. It was too drnmatlo and absurd. As oon coivod It was for them to go to the Benato and bo sworn ln, thon to wrap them selvos up in tholr dignity and overcoats. In stead of togas, and to stalk out liko Romans amid tho applause of tholr partisans. This. It was found, would not worK The Bennto could at onco organize and a Bergeant-nt-Arms or tho local Rhoriffs could catch them before thoy loft the Btato and bt Ing them back. Tho Benato could havo been organlzod. and It would havo full powors. With ono captured Republican Senator, guarded by the Borgeant-nt-Arms In tho Sonatu chambor. tho Democrats could have u quorum present and a majority of that quorum could unseat the, Republicans In tho four contostcd districts. The people, of the Btate would justify tho Senate In this course, and tho Republicans would be laughed at tor having made fools of thomsohes. The Senate of the Btate of Now York consists of thirty-two mombors. Tho State Constitu tion (article 3. Bectton 10) says: "A majority of each Houso shall constltuto a quorum to do business." Article l'J. section 1 ot tho Consti tution says: "Mombors ot tho Legislature shall, before they enter on the duties ot their respective offices, tako and subscribe the following oath or nmrinatton (horo follows the form of tho oath), and all such ofllcors who Bhall have been chosen at any election shall, boforo they enter on the dutlos of their respectho offices, tako and subscribe the oath or affirma tion abovo prescribed, togethor with the fol lowing addition thereto as part thereof." Horo follows additional oath.) This article is mandatory. No man who has not takon and subscribed to this oath of office Bhall entor on tho duties of his office. All tho Republican Senators need do is to decline to bo sworn In. Borne sharp lawyer, or Mr. Piatt himself, may havo found this out As soon as Tlatt had Investigated it ho telegraphed to tho Republican Senators to meot him In New York unit consult. Tliuy are meeting to-night. Tlioro aro only sixteen Democratic Sonators. The Democrats, of course, can go on and bo sworn In. but aftertheyaio sworn in they nro helpless unless some other Senator will also tako tho oath of office, '1 ho Constitution pro- Idea that there must boa quorum to do busi ness, mid that it takes a mnjotity of thirty-two to mako a quorum. A majority of thirty-two la sotontcon, un.l tho Democrats have sixteen. Dr. James T. hdwardsof Cattaraugus county holds thesltuation in his hand, if he goes in and qualifies the Democrats can control tho benuto und tho Legislature of the btato. If he stays after he takes tho oath, tho Democrats will havo no trouble. If he does not stay, tho Dem ocrats can haotho betgeant-at-Arras arrest liini at onco and keep him in the benuto cham ber until they unseat ono of the Republicans whose seat Is contested. This situation de- eloped to-day with Mr. Piatt's summons to tho Republican benators. Dr. 1 dw arils represents one of the strongest Republican districts in the btato. It comprises Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties, and no Democrat hns como to tho benato from them slneo tho new Cat Itol was built Thoy nro granite-ribbed ln tliolr Republicanism.

A Floe Hnlr-or-Ttiiln Fiorrrnntuie Arrnngcd If They C'un Cuptiire Edwurtlii. The Republican Senntors will meet In caucua at Albauy to-night Preliminary to that Inter esting occasion, Senator Georgo ' Edwin of Bt Lawronce, tho acknowledged leader of tho Ropubllcan minority In tho benato, arrived at the Fifth Avenue Hotel from Potsdam yester day. He was shortly followed by United States Senator HUcock of bjracuse, and closo behind him ca no btute bonators Hoivoy J. Don aldson of baiatoja und Derby of Rensse laer. All hud talks with ox-benntor PJ.att about tho proginmmo of the Republican Si nn tors. Donaldson and Derby were greatly dis turbed for their own safety. The frequently felt to boo If their heads wero still upon their shoulders. With tho claim of thu Dumoctallc btato Committee that it can bo provun that gross Republican frauds woropurpctiatcd in tho districts now represented by Donaldson and Derby, moro than usual attention was given to their cases. Tho story was upper most with tho Republicans that if the Demo crats organize the Benate Donaldson and. Derhy will be unseated Induecoiirseon proofs of the frnuds, and, furthermore, that Charles K Walker of Corning will bo seuted in bhor w. 'oil's ill. ice.

The Republicans agreed that hu was a pretty big man just now. bhould ho swear in thu heuntu would, bo lust bnond roderaptlon to thu Republicans. l.ery effort will be made to capture Senator M wards. If the Bepublloaua are successful in thslr blandish- mente they will maintain that tho Democrats are unnblo to organize on tho ground tnnt they hno only sixteen Senators. "But believing that Lieut-Guv. Sheohan will organize tho Senate with that number, nnd believing that they will bo successful In Influencing benator Edwards not to act with tho Democrats, they propose, according to the progi ammo yesterday, to rcsol. e at the caucus to-night not to prosontthemselvos to be sworn in as members of tho Sonnte. Thon the Ser-geant-at-Arms. elected by Lleut-Gov. Shoehan nnd his sixteen Bonators. will, they hold, havo no jurisdiction over them. Thoy can absont themselves from the Benate and not caro n fat thing about tho Sorgeant-at-Arms. They argued yesterday that until they aro sworn lu they nro not mem hers of tho Senate. It was ery evident thnt tho Republican hao determined upon a strlko of somo sort They aro out for blood. Despite tho doolslons of the Com t of Appeals thoy will hot let go without making all tlm troublo they can. It Is declared that should the Senate bo organized by the Domocruts with sixteon members, and should anything happen to tho Cornell hold overs thoro will bo Hiinthorund a longBerlos of contests In the courts. "Mr. Sheohan cannot locally organize, with tho sixti.cn." said one of the Repulilloans. "and arguing on the belief that lxlwnrds will finally be prevailed to Hct wllh us, tho seutlngof tho opponents of Donaldson, Dar by, nnd She! wood would ho Illegal, nnd would lie taken to tho courts. It would open a now Hold for discussion. The eoutts would bo compelled to decide whether slxtoen or seven teen Is tho constitutional majority In the Sen ate. Should Gov. Flowor attempt to appoint men to succeed tho Ropuhltcans now In offlco, as tho Health Officer of tho Port tho Port Wardons, Ac., and should these appointments be confirmed by a body that was organized by sixteon Senators, the legal ity of tho appointments would bo taken to tho courts." Kvorythlng hinges, though. In the matter of fatronage, according to tho Republicans, on lie couiso to be adopted by Senator tdwards. He may vote to organize tho benato and then refuse to uld ln confirming the Governor's ap pointments. But once organlzod with Ed wards's vote tho Republicans admit that thoy lose their last prop. They might refrain from being sworn ln, but that would not help thon). Indeed they would bo greatly Injured person ally.

Dktveb. Jan. a-Ni ver In the criminal his tory of tho West havo there boon so many sen sational developments In a murder trial as have occurred slnco tho verdict In the Graves caso last night. Under pressuro of the oxcltn ment Dr. Graves made a confession of guilt on his way to his coll. implicating one of Ills council. Col. Ballou of Providence, who has disappeared. In tho murder of Mrs. Barnabr. To-day ho repudiated this confession. Mrs. Graves lost hor reason last night and the prls. oner's mother Is so prostratod that she Is not expectod to llvo. The worth of the alleged confession depends upon the trustworthiness of Deputy Sheriffs Wilson and Moans. Dr. Graves confessed on the way to the jail. That is what Deputy Wilson stated to District Attorney Sto vens and John H. Conrad early this morning. Graves doclared that OoL Ballou who drow tho first will for Mrs. Barnaby. was the instigator of tho crime. John H. Conrad and Attorney Ponoe called at tho county jail nt 3:30 o'clock this morning as soon as thoy heard of the allegod oonfesslon. Deputy Sheriff Wilson was with thorn. Wilson went Into tho jail and asked Dr. Graves It he would be willing to make a statement to Judge Ris ing and to Mr. Stevens. Dr. Graves said: "No. I will oo my attorney first ln the morning." An hour before Wilson and Means were oloseted with District Attorney Stevens and Mr. Conrad at the Albany Hotel." Their de positions wore taken by a notary public. This afternoon Wilson told this story ot Dr. Graves's confession: "Isuggosted."ho said, "that we get into a carrlago to go to the jail In, but Dr. Graves ob jected. 'Please let me walk In.' he aaid. 'It may make me foel better. I shall not be alive to-morrow.' "Noticing the despairing condition of the prisoner, we bogan to ply him with questions. Wo found him an easy subject Graves yielded to the first Innucament I said to him: 'Now. Doctor, you have been eonvloted altera fair trial, and your only hope lies In making a clean breast of it and relying on the clemency of the Governor. Dr. Graves at once exolaimed: "'lam not to blame, gentlemen. I am not to blame. Ballou was the author of the entire plot Ho came to mo nnd said that our flnuncos were at a low ebb. Wo wore behind with Mrs, Barnaby's account There wus only one way out of the difficulty, he said, and that was the way I adopted. Ballou planned the entire soheme.' " I then turned to Deputy Means, and asked him not to listen to what Dr. Graves was say ing. Graves stnppod me. and facing us both said very emphatically: "'Yes. gentlemon. I repeat before yon both what I havo just said. Ballou was the author of this scheme. I wanted to testify on the stand that I sent a bottle of good whiskey, but thoy would not let mo. If they had it would h vo saved me.' " At that Dr. Graves tottored. reolod. and fell into my arms, and for a minute he could scarcely breathe." After turning over Dr. Graves to the jailer, Wilson notified District Attorney Stevens at once. Doputy Sheriff Means has corroborated Wilson's statement During the day papers were drawn up by tho District Attorney for tho nrrest of Ballou ns the leading conspirator, and John If. Conrad, the prosecuting witness, snysthat nn indictment will bo found to-morrow against Ballou. Ballou left Denver last night for the L'ast bofoio a verdict had beon reached. His associate in the case. Judge Furman, said: "Owing to the illness of Mrs. Ballou In Providence it was compulsory. I understand sho has gone mad." In company with Judge Furman, TnisSuH correspondent this afternoon called upon Dr. Gravos in tho county jail. His cell Is in mur derers' row, nnd It is scantily furnished. The prisoner was vety much dejected, and after greeting his visitors with "God bless you for calling," Judge Furman said: "Doctor, you havo boen convicted nnd I don't think that Judge Rising will grunt you a new trial. I attribute this conviction to Judge Rising's manner on tho bench. He prejudiced tho jury against us. Tho Supremo Court may nossilily reverse the decision. I wlshtoirho poBBiuiy IUVUISD ma UUIISIOU. 1 wmiliuitivo you the sumo advice now that I did when I llrst took chnrgo of vour case. Toll the truth. If there Is anything you aro concealing como out and tell it You uioa poor man anu unlimited menus aro being used against you. and by all moans you must tell tho truth. There is no use koeping up this fight. If you are guilty you ought not to go to tho gallows with a Ho ui on your lips." Dr. Gruves. with much offort thon said: "I cannot truthfully alter any statement I have told you In tho last. 1 never told either of the deputies u single word. Deputy ilson suggested in me that ballou was morn to blan h than myself, and that If I worotocnnfe.ss.it would go eusioi with mo. I heard what they had to suy. but never oponcd my mouth Hero in tho presence of my God, ulm Is the only friend I have outside of my poor wifo and poor mother, 1 swear that I am Innocent of this aw I ill crlnio. 1 am simply the victim of a strange chain of circumstances, nnd 1' I over live to go to tho gallows, my last words will bo: 'God, I am Innocent' As lur an I know, I believe Mr. Ballou innocent, and think htm u:. other victim." This closed the interview. Counsel for the defonco havo llvo ilas in which to present their petition for n new trial. Ono of the must Pathetic. Incidents ln connection with the .nso is the alarming oonriltlon of Mis. Graves. On reaching hor room I ist night sho remarked to n consoling friend: " I woiidot what's the mat ter with my head such strange sounds, I appear dlzy. Am I golngmad r Pioniisomc. if I lose my reason tliut I will not be placed in unyasvlum." With that sho fell helpless on a tied. Slnco then sho has not uttered an intel ligent word, and it Is feared that she lias lost hor reason. The older Mrs. Graves, mother of the rrisoner. hns not been out of her bed since the announcement of the verdict and it is doubtful If she will survive. After court adjourned Inst night a rush was made for the conviit by his friends and sym- fathlzers. Ah they crowded ai omul him Judgo uimunwept It w.isseveiul minutes before hecomposod himself. Dr. Graves shed no tears, hut his excitement was more Intense thun his attorney's gnf. lie juniijeil from hischuir tntho table, und sat there liken man stricken dumb. Hu could not speak for fully live IllinutHb. "WIij, I am surprised: vory much mil prised, he said finally. "I did not expect it ut all. I had no Idea It would bo like this." John Conrad, tho sou-in law of Mrs. Barna by. was in the ro nn when tho vuialct was an nounced. When tho words wero hpoken ho arose and stepie-d from the coutt room. His ejes were llllei) with tears: he would not say a word, but looked sorrowfully ut tho man who hud boen lonvl'ted, tin his wav to jail Dr. Graves said: "Tho whole twelve said guilty, did they? Hu scorned in hope that one man would hold out for him. In tho jail Dr, Graves gavo way com pleteh. He sank down in tho hair like one In n faint. 1 hen lie ls-gati to cry and nt one time said, "I'll pover live for a pew trial." Ho was put in the conilcr.un droll, all his clothing was removed, .mil ne, g ir mints substituted. About half past .' o'clock this morning. In alitor ftonv. he attempted to commit suieldo, ami had it not I., cu Hint a deputj in guard Interfeied hawoiild haw-mii-co.'doil In swallowing the contents of u i, Boforo .mother day has passed it ih expected that Col. Halloo will ho under at test In Chi cago. It Is also said to-night that at an early hour to-morrow Judge Rising mid District Attorney btuvens will visit the county jail and take a confession from Dr. Graves. In this I confession, according to John IL Conrad, the accused will voluntarily tell tho entire story of his oonnectlon with Mrs. Barnaby. He will cnnfOHs sending tho bottle nf poison, I ut will clnltn it was done nt the Instigation of Lawyer Ballou, In o ler to prevent nn Investigation as to their wnsteful expenditures of tho woman's money. If this confession Is mado tho tto fnndant will boat the mnrcy of tho prosecu tion. His counsel will discontinue all Inter est in his behall. In return for this confession the prosecution tuny agree to havo tho death penalty suspended. The city Is much excited to-night. A dotiblo guard has been placed over Dr, Graves to pre vent any further attempt at snlcble. It has been learned that atterllstenlng to tho greater portion of District Attorney Movens'selo-lm,' argument Ballou went dlreitly to tho alli jo. tho private hotel where lm was stopping, and hurriedly packed his things. He called Man ager Lvans to his apartments, und told blm ho desired to settle his bills. '1 ho latter ex pressed his surnriSK that the lawyer would leave so unexpectedly, when the f.ttn of his cllont had not vet boon determined. Col.

One hour alter his depatitiro tho verdict condemning Graves to death was found. Before tho lawyer's dopnituro he w-iu occused of being an accomplice of Dr. Graves. It Is supposed that this, coupled with a pro monltton of what the verdict would bo, fright ened htm. OIRL STUDENTS FLEE FROM FIRE. Coaverse College Burned and the (Undents Turned Out In the Night.

Nearly 100 of thoso hud gone home for the Christmas holidays, leaving fifty, bestdos tho collogo force. In the building. Saturday night was intenoly oold and the furnaces wore tested to their limit About half an hour after midnight a colored man hurrying by noticed flames shooting from the furnace room. Boforo ho oould give the alarm the central wing ot the building secmod to bo on Are. ' ' The main stairways reaching to the dormi tories were Boon aflame. Two men who had by thlstlmoreachod tho building broke open tho doors of the west annox. and ran from door to door awakening tho stooping occupants. As the girls orowded Into the hallways, and saw tin main exits closed against them great con fusion reigned. The matrons found it almost Impossible to give directions for their escape. Ono young woman, driven almost to Insanity, mado a rush to get through the fire, but was pulled back. Her hands and faco wote terribly burned. At length they wero put on tho way to escape through tho annox stairways, ana began streaming out into the open air. The change from the hont and smoke of the burning building into tho freezing atmosphere was almost ns terriblons the fate which thoy had escaped. Tho nearest houso was half it mllo away, and in tho confusion which result ed from their hurried exit and scant attire und want of leadership they suffered much. In about hnlf an hour people began nrriving from tho city, and tho offort to gathor up tho girls and take them to homes began, bhiverlng with cold, somo of them wore grouped around the burning building hoping to get some warmth. Others had wandered off. They wore all found in a short time. The thormometor was about 20" abovo zero. A FORMER STATE SENATOR SUOT. lie Was Found In Another Man's Bedroom and Waa Escaping Thronsjh a Window. Rochxavd. Mo., Jan 3. Ex-Senator Btephon J. Gushoe is lying nt death's door from a gun shot wound in the little village of Apploton, and a youug man named Weed Is under arrest awaiting tho result of tho wounded man's in juries. Young Weed's explanation of tho shooting places the ex -Senator ln avery unen viable position. Wood Is a sportsman of some repute, and on Thursday last he started out on a hunting expedition, announcing that he should bo gone soveral days. On that night however, n sevoro storm arose, and Weed, who had loft his pretty 17-j oar-old wife alono nt home, decided to return at onco. lest sho should bo alarmed as to his safety. Whon ho reached homo at about midnight ho was ns tonished tollnd another mun.nourly undo. In his room. This man. according to Weed's story, made a break for tho window. Wood's wifo was speechless, but no excuses woro offered. Weed dollberntcly lifted his gun and fired at the despoller of his homo. By tho Hash of the gun he idontilled tho mannsex henator btephon J. Gusliee, a politician widely known In thu State. Ho was badly wounded, but made good his escape to his own homo. Gusheo's promlironeo nnd the fact that his wound was serious and might prove fatal; lent additional Interest to tho caso. and while Wocd's conduct was not altogether con demned. It was nocessary for somo official action to betaken. Sheriff Gray, accompanied by County Attorney I'roscott left for Appleton yesterday to arrest Weed. ON A REEF OFF TIIE ItATTERT.
