Associated Press Dispatches.
Columbus, 0., Jan. 3.—The Sabbath
has been reverently respected by the
senatorial contestants, and a temporary
armistice has been declared in the great
political battle which has been waged
so vigorously for the past few weeks.
Both Senator Sherman and ex-Governor
Foraker have remained on the ground,
but the day was one of inactivity so far
as their lieutenants were concerned.
Tbis sudden inaction, the Foraker men
say, is but the calm which precedes the
storm. The Sherman men say it iB the
rigor mortis of the expiring cause. To
the friends of the distinguished senator
the battle is fought and won; to tbe ad
herents of the eloquent Foraker, the
political atmosphere is laden with the
hopeful augury that into the web of the
future is stilt to be woven the woof of
strange results. Thus the situation to
night is one of complacent expectancy on
the one hand, and eternal hope on the
While the impression is certainly gen
eral among impartial lookers on at Col
umbus that the speakership contest was
fought upon' senatorial lines, and that
its result must be accepted as indicating
Sherman's renomination, the friends of
Foraker still maintain that several For
aker men voted for Laylin, and that
these, together with the votee Foraker
will get in the senate will be sufficient
to give him the nomination. Foraker's
managers assert that the ex-governor
will have not less than eight votes in
the senate.
Conceding Sherman fourteen voi.es iv
the senate, and admitting Foraker's
claims in the house, Sherman's vote
would stand in the house, 32; in the
senate, 14; total, 48. lhia would leave
Senator Sherman one short of nomina
tion, Foraker three short, and Dicks
and Welsh holding the balance of pow
er, but unable to do more than create a
tie between Sherman and Foraker
should they vote for the latter. Accord
ing to other Foraker claims, the ex-gov
ernor will have 38 in the house | and 7
in the senate; total, 45. Foster will
have ono and McKinley one.
It will be seen that the admission of
Iden to the caucus might have an im
portant effect on the result; but the
Foraker people's claim of at least
eight in tbe senate, if verified, along
with the claim of thirty-eight in the
house, would reverse things, and give
Foraker forty-six and Sherman forty
five. Then if Iden be not admitted
Sherman's vote would fall to forty-four.
Welsh voting for Foraker, or one of the
Sherman men going to him, would give
him the required forty-seven. These are
the views at Foraker headquarters, but
they are derided by the Sherman peo
ple, and treated as mirth-provoking pre
The senator's friends are loudly say
ing tonight that he will have a majority
.of not less than fourteen votes in the
caucus, and profess their willingness to
have either an open or a secret ballot, as
Foraker desires. They cay tbe loud
claims of ForaKer'a managers are made
with the hope of keeping his followers
loyal to him, in order that he may go
down in the caucus with at least a re
spectable following. They state that a
pledge has been drawn that is iron-clad
in its nature, and those devoted to the
cauao of the ex-governor are being
asked to sign it. By these
terms th« supporters of Foraker
agree to remain true to his candidacy
until he wins or loses, and' not weaken
or waver in the slightest degree. For
aker's managers deny that such a docu
ment is in existence or is demanded to
insure tho continued loyalty of the ex
governor's supporters.
Senator Parker of Cleveland, who has
been ostensibly in the doubtful list, but
generally counted in the Foraker list,
formally declared tonight for Foraker.
It has been practically determined to
hold the senatorial caucus Tuesday, in
stead of Thurday night. It is generally
agreed between tbe Sherman and
Foraker men that the few members re
maining doubtfjl will be ready or forced
to declare by that time, and there will
be no advantage to either Bide to pro
long the contest.
Considerable excitement was created
tonight by the report that the Foraker
senators had determined to prevent
Iden from participating in the sena
torial caucus or being seated over Gau
mer, his Democratic competitor, until
after the senatorial contest was over.
Neither Iden nor Gaumer have been ,
granted < ertificates, the courts holding
that the case was one in which the
senate alone had jurisdiction, but of
course Iden will ultimately be seated.
As Iden is for Sheriden, and the contest
between the candidates is very close,
the friends of Foraker naturally insist
that there should be no unseemly
haste in seating Iden. The Sher
man people are preparing to make
short work of the contest, and
will seat Iden tomorrow, in which
event his vote will naturally be availa
ble in the senatorial caucus the follow
ing day. It said tonight that the For
aker senators will move that the Iden-
Gaumer case be referred to the commit
tee on elections when appointed. This
would naturally delay the matter two or
three days. It is likely that the Sher
man senators will insist upon settling
the matter at once by seating Iden. The
Foraker men, it is said, will vote against
this, and as they naturally have the
support of the Democratic senators who
are, of course, opposed to seating Iden
at any time, however remote, the
.Republican contestant cannot be seated.
It iB stated tonight that the Foraker
men have received assurances from the
Democratic senators that they will sup
port the movement, but the Sherman
men still maintain that the Iden case
will be disposed on Tuesday at the
latest. Some Democrats are in favor of
supporting the Foraker senators only
upon promise that Gaumer, the Demo
crat, ultimately be seated. This condi
tion the ex-governor's friends are not
willing to accept, but it is
said they are willing to pledge
that the contest be finally decided
entirely upon its merits and without
regarded to political consideration. It
is likely that this assurance will be per
fectly satisfactory to the majority of the
Democrats. At "Foraker's headquarters
tonight no acknowledgement could be
obtained of the plan. Neither was the
report of such intention contradicted.
The report is generally accepted as au
Senator Sherman this evening re
ceived a telegram from Governor Ferry
of the state of Washington, stating:
"The Republicans on the Pacific coast
believe your defeat will be-a great ca
lamity to the nation and our party."
The Union Pacini- Loses Two of Its Leased
St. Joseph, Mo , Jan. 3.—An official
telegram from James H. Benedict, pres
ident of the St. Joseph and Grand Island
and Kansas City and Omaha railways,
has been received by J. W. Walker,
president of the board of trade, announc
ing that the bondholders of the St.
Joseph and Grand Island, becoming dis
satisfied with the operation of the road
by the Union Pacific, had taken both
lines from the control of that corpora
tion, and reestablished general offices in
this city, with W. P. Robinson, jr., of
the Erie dispatch, as general manager.
The remainder of the offices will be filled
during the week.
Colonel Ballon Was the Instigator of the
Crime and Brought Him to tbe Callows.
The Confession Re traeted- Ballou
Denver, Jan. 3.—Deputy Sheriff
George Means and James Wilson, who
conveyed Dr. Graves from the court
house to his cell, stated that on the way
he confessed to them that Daniel K.
Ballou waß the instigator of the crime.
The men left the court house immedi
ately after the doctor was given in their
charge and walked to jail. Means and
Wilson consented to tell a reporter the
facts which they allege were confessed
by Graves.
"As we went along," said Wilson,
"tbe doctor began to speak of the case
and asked what i though i of his chances
on appeal to the supreme court. I
told him 1 did not think his chances
were of much account, adding that I
thought the best thing was to make a
confession of tbe whole matter, and be
might have a chance to receive execu
tive clemency. To this he said 'Ballou
has brought me to the gallows. I cent
the Dottle of poison, but Ballou insti
gated the whole affair.' Dr. Graves
stopped, turned round and told the
whole thing over again."
A reporter called ou Graves in hiß cell
and he" refused to deny that he had con
fessed, putting it in this way: "I have
nothing more to say until I see Judge
It is stated that Messrs. Macon and
Furman used every effort to prevent
Ballou from coming to Denver, as they
feared he would prejudice the case. Dr.
Graves insisted that he should come.
Tonight Judge Furman emphatically
denied that Graves had made the above
confession to the deputy sheriffs. Dr.
Graves later refused to say anything in
regard to the matter, excepting that he
was entirely innocent, and desired to be
left undisturbed.
Colonel Ballou has no,t been seen
today, and it is said he disappeared from
public sight a short time alter the ver
dict was rendered.
When Graves was searched in jail last
night before being put in a cell three or
four small phials were found on his per
son. They contained a colorless fluid,
which the doctor said was entirely
harmless. This led to a story that he
attempted to commit suicide.
A Young Wife Ravished by Seven
Toughs in Her Husband's Presence.
New York, Jan. 3.—William Parell,
21 years old, and his newly wedded
wife, aged 19, living at 608 West Fifth
Btreet, were awakened this morning by
some one breaking into their apart
ment. Seven young toughs rushed into
the room, pufled him out of bed, and
threatened him with death if he made
an outcry. He broke away from them,
however, and ran out to the street,
shouting for help. Hearing screams
from his wife's room, he rushed back to
her assistance, only to find her strug
gling in the embrace of one of the
toughß. Before he could reach her side,
however, he was seized by several oth
ers, who held bim and compelled him
to witness a sight that cannot be de
scribed in words, aB one after another of
the young scoundrels ravished hia wife.
The poor woman fought desperately,
but the assailants beat her into insensi
bility and accomplished their purpose.
A policeman now entered the house,
when the ruffians all escaped, but one
whom the officer succeeded in captur
ing. He proved to be Richard Kane, 20
years old, of Eleventh avenue. 'Ihe offi
cer rang for an ambulance. The surgeon
who accompanied it found the woman
very badly injured, besides suffering
greatly from nervous prostration. She
has been in an exceedingly critical con
dition all day. Justice Ryan committed
Kane for examination on Wednesday
next. His six accomplices are not yet
known, but the police believe all of them
will be under arrest before the day set
for Kane's examination.

been put to has about used them up,

San Antonio, Tex., Jan. 3. —The lat
est news from the border is a telegram
received at military headquarters from
Captain Wheeler, commanding officer
of Fort Ringgold. He . reports that
Lieutenant Langborne, with a detach
ment, surprised a camp of revolution
ists a few miles from Las Cuevas, who

escaped into a dense thicket, not, how
ever, until one of Garza's leaders,
Col. Pablo Munoz, had been captured,
as well as the horses ' and

for his services.
Juan Antonio Flores, a follower of
Garza in Nueva Leon, Mexico, has issued
another proclamation calling npon all
patriotic Mexicans to take up arms and
assist in overthrowing Diaz and restor
ing the constitution.
St. Louis, Jan. 3—A Republic
special from San Antonio says: Follow
ing is a translation of the pronuncia
miento by Juan Antonio Flores, in
"As Mexicans we must not remain
spectators of the revolutionary move
ment initiated by Garza, because, be
sides basing the revolution on the holy
principles of democracy, proclaiming
thereby the liberty of the people, be
has demonstrated that his political ideil
rests on the pillar of the rights of the
people. What worthy Mexican does not,
love the freedom of his country? He is
the moat miserable type in America. Bear
in mind we have examples given us. On
different occasions Mexicans shed their
blood on the battlefield before submit
ting to slavery's yoke. The revolution
is founded on a great precedent, and has
great piestige. Garza has managed to
reproach with facta, anil not fatalities,
the publications of the subsidized press.
He has established in the midst of po
litical conventions an insurrectionary
system entirely of modern times."
After calling the Mexicans to arms,
the document givea a brief history of
the life of Gen. Servado Canates, "the
bold director who spurned the dictato
rial dispositions of the supreme govern
ment with the constitution of "
The document then goes on: "Now
is the time, fellow countrymen.
The revolutionary standard calls you
to cover yourselves with its shadow. Be
convinced that the revoltionary spark
has been kindled, and the blaze tbat
will give us freedom is rapidly spread
ing throughout our territory. It only
lacks for the frontiersmen to rise so that
the throne of the tyrant Diaz may
be overthrown by the great work in
angurated by the most modest of Mexi
can writers, Garza. The attitude of the
United States government signifies
nothing, taking under consideration
the propositions the tyrant, Diaz has
been making to it, but maybe pretty
soon the American legislators will be
convinced of the just reasons on which
the revolution is founded, and will pro
test against those exaggerated laws
of neutrality which amount to nothing
when placed before the cry of a
nation for liberty. On the other hand,
the neighboring" republic ought not up
hold an autocratic chief, allowing
that international laws emanate
from similar constitutions, one of
which (Mexico's) does not exist
even in book or manuscript, because it
has been stepped upon by Mexicans at
will. He who writes is a Mexican who
loves the freedom of his country.
Hurrah for the revolution and Mexico
free! Your companion in danger,
"Juan Antonio Fi.ores."
Washington, Jan. 3.—A dispatch re

engagement here tonight, after having
done a large business.
In an interview tonight Sullivan said:
"I have taken the pledge to quit drink

meet Slavin, but he is apparently trying
to evade the issue. My tour with Har
rison closes the first week in June; then
I would like the match to take place

erence to New Orleans. Charley John

Reciprocity a Good Thing for France
and the United States.
Paris, Jan 3. —A correspondent of the
Associated Press has had an interview
with M. Pierre le Grand, member of the
chamber of deputies and ex-minister of
commerce, on the subject of commercial
treaty negotiations between France and
the United States. In the course of the
conversation, Le Grand said: "I am
opposed on principle to treaties of com
merce, aa I consider them dangerous in
struments for the government to handle.
But if the ministry haa decided to enter
into new contracts, I will be happy to
learn of the conclusion of a treaty with
tbe United States. I believe both France

reciprocity." »
