Senator Burke, the only dissenting 'It.-publican, presented the name of E. iMelCtsson, the Republican mayor of Cleveland, in a very forcible and in fla-mmable speech that commanded the ?losest attention. In one of his cli? maxes he said: "James A. Oa.i'fl-eld would have voted ir 'MoKiLsesin, if he were alive and a ein at or h-ere today." The vote of 'the 'House was the same s that of yesterday, with the exeep ion that Hazlet. who voted then for Vil'ey, and 'Hess, who v?>ted for. War? ner, today voted with the other Demo~ crats for M.-Kisson. General lAquilla Willy was the only Democrat not vot? ing with the coalition, and he vcte<t again for Congressman Lentz.

The other, forty -ix Democratic members and the six 'bolting 'Republican representatives voted together for an investigation be? fore electing a 'Senator. , Uepresentative Stewart, one of Han na'st leaders, said there would come a proper time for the fullest investiga? tion, but this was the time for electing a Senator. The appearance of Lieutenant Gov? ernor Jones and the Senators at the .bar >f >t.he House shut off the hot bribery discussion. After the election the House adjounn? ed until tomorrow, with tt3 bribery res? olutions still undinr consideration.

The committee of five appointed under this resolution began its work tonight, .but nothing additional was de? veloped.

Among the Representatives during the afternoon, there was considerable agitation of a proposition to re?rgaai?e the House by ousting Speaker Mason and all other officers of that body thait nad been elected by the fusion ten days nsro. It is claimed that the fifty-six Repr-e -entative-s who voted for Hanna today a_nd constitute-d a majority of three in the House, would stand together for ?tiat purpose. No plans for the reor? ganization of the Senate ar? considered, for the reason that Senator Burke con? tinues to co-operate with ithe Demo? crats, which leaves that body standing !9 to 1" as It was organlzea. If Senator Burke co-operated with the other Re? publicans, the 'Senate ivould stand a tie politically and could not be reorgan? ized. Governor Bushnell was not present In the hall when the hallots -were taken.
