Appointment of Committees Iowa Legislature. by the FROM MAINE- Augusta, Maine, Jan. 20.—Machinists workM all night on the safe in the secreta ry's office ana finally opened it. There were no valuable papers in it nor the seal of the state nor official election returns. It .is conjectured that the returns have been ^destroyed. The fuaioni't senate^nd house were called to o,rder in Union hall. In the house Dickey urgedall members to stand firm. He was confident the courts and congress would recognize this as the legal legislature. He had assurance to that effect. Dr. Bradbury said some members lacked the firmness necessary to success. He be lieved, however, a higher tnan partisan supreme court would recognise this legisla ture, and argued that the legislature pro ceed as though their hall bad not been usurped. He read telegrams promising pecuniary aid and adjuring them to stand by, the legislature and Governor Smith. He Mid the state felt the same way about this act of violence. It had strengthened the fusionists' cause and bound them to gether. Swan followed, accusing the republicans of bribery and Intimidation at the polls, of planning to get a partisan decision from the •UDreme court, of usurping the governor's office. The fusionists should say to the court "Hands off! We will not be sup pressed by your partisan action." A dark cloud of. treason bangs over us. The capi tal is in the hands of rebels. If we staiid firm, the victory will be ours. A committee wan appointed on the pay roll and mileage of members. Dickey said the state treasurer refused to Ee ay out funds for this legislature. It would provided for otherwise. Plaisted deprecated haste or rashness. Affairs were in safe and able hands, and if they were careful all Would be well. H« deprecated force and iaQtmuiatory talk. Staples said he had told ihe republicans-, who invited him into ttieir legislature that that body was like a hotel without a bed, pantry or food, nothing but a sign. His quaint remarks provoked great laughter. In tbe fusioo senate Potion said we.sre waiting a reply from the- judges as to whether they will entertslo questions from this body. Patton believed intimidation WAS rampant throughout the country. Barker said attempts were made to bribe him, and hoped the resolution of investiga tion would pass. Thompson, of Knox, believed frauds were practiced. Justice required that jus tice should be done, Thompson, of Franklin, was sure bribery had been practiced in his county and favored investigation. JEllis said he wished the opinion of the court, thought that the fusion house was not legal, but that the senate was a legal body, that no business transacted by the house would start legally. Some action must be taken that will be re cognized br tbe court also some action that would affect the greenback party in the spring election. Patten believed both branches legal. Adjourned to 4 p. m. It Is thought that tbe committee will re port In favor of adjournment till May. Tbe matter of pay roll was taken into consider ation. Where tbe funds are to come from Is noi definitely known. It is not believeo tbe fusionists can hold out long unless money is obtained outside of tbe state. Boston, Jan. 20.The Herald's Augusta special says In the republican house this morning a communication was received from B. White, of Winthrop, demanding an investigation of tbe charges of bribery preferred against him by the fusionist legis lature. White states that he has been waiting for the organization of the legisla ture in order, to present bis demand for special committee to investigate the case. Eugene Hale ofiered a resolution declar ing the state^ government fully established, add denouncing all other bodies pretending to be a part of the state government as un constitutional, Tbe events of yesterday stiffened up the fusionists' backbone and their legislature shows fewer signs of decay than ever. The refusal to admit members like Strickland and Knowles and others of whose right to seat there is no doubt, when they went to the state bonse yesterday, has helped tbe fusionists. It was just sucb a step ss Gov. Smith snd Pillsbury hsd hoped would be taked. There bad been a strong possibility before that Senator Strickland, who is a lawyer and has a lawyer's respect for the opinion of the supreme court, would go into the republican legislature this week, but such were his feelings at being shut out of the state house yesterday- that there is very little danger of his leaving the fuaion ranks now. Looking at it this way, the affair at the state house was a great benefit to tbe fu sionists. Boston, Jan. 20.—Tbe Journal's Augusta special: Some of the best fusionist law yers here are considering the legality of the legialation, but the conservstive element is notably absent. Augusts, Jan. 20.—The legislature in session al tbe state house declares tbe exist ence of the fusion legislature wholly with out authority, and ordering inquir whether legislation is necessary to pnnisl the abstraction of the state records and property.
