THE KANSAS SITUATION.
Democrats Hold the Balance or Power
and Mean to Exercise It.
Topeka, Kan., Jan. 5. —The supreme
court this afternoon decided the Stubbs-
Roaenthal legislative contest in favor of
Stubba, Republican. Thia virtually in
aures the Republicans the organization

In joint session the partiea would be
divided thna: Republicans, 74; Popu
lists, 71; Democrats, 6—giving a clear
opposition to the Republicana of two.
Thia majority, however, ia not a harmo
nioua one except in its opposition to
Republicanism. It would be an easy
matter to combine it on the question it
will have to decide, viz.: the aenator

Watterion Says Carlisle Will Be Presl
ident After Cleveland.
St. Louis. Mo., Jan, 5. —Henry Wat
terson speaking today of the attitude of
John G. Carlisle toward the Cleveland
administration, said: "You can state,
as my belief, that Mr. Carlisle will ac
cept the proffered portfolio of the treas
ury. This will entail an actual sacrifice
on the part of Carlisle, for, as secretary,
his expenses wonld be greater than his
income. As senator he can supplement
his salary by law practice. As secretary
he could not."
"If Mr. Carlisle administers the treas
ury as the country has reason to expect
he will," continued Mr. Watterson, "ho
power on earth can keep him out of the
presidency, if he wants it."

By the Associated Press.
Boston, Jan. 5 —"In the name of (iod
I arraign yon, tbe head of the British
government, for the murder of Florence
Elizabeth Maybrick, now dying in tbe
convict prison at Woking." So writeß
Miss Abigail Dodge, the authoress known
to the literary world as Gail Hamilton,
to Rt. Hon. William E. Gladstone, prime
minister of Great Britain. Miss Dodge
declares there is no evidence of the
imprisoned woman's guilt, and shames
the great government for binding the
feeble hands ot a woman in a living
tomb, and demanding more evidence of
her innocence. After reproaching the
British government, and the home office
in particular, for its barbarons action,
Miss Dodge declares they are guilty of
©losing Bhe aaye: "But if there
be a God who makes and notes the ways
of thia world; who heara the voice of
innocent blood crying unto Him from
the ground ; it ia better to be the young
wife and mother, perishing in Woking
prison, than the prime minister of the
government which works her torture
and her alaughter."

out tonight in a large brick building oc

story buildings and a residence
on Pennsylvania avenue. The buildings
destroyed were occupied by P. Duff &
Sons, commission merchants ; Cavitt &
Pollock, lamps and fancy imported
goods; Booth & Fiynn, contractors, and
numerous offices. The losses at mid
night are estimated from a quarter to
half a million dollars.
Keech's immense installment house
and the Weatinghouse machine shops
were on fire several times, but the good
work ofe the fire departments saved
them. At 11 '30 o'clock the walls of the
Duff building fell with a crash,
burying the old Verner mansion,
adjoining. Fortunately the family had
deserted the house before the walls
came down, and so far aB known no one
was injured, but many valuable paint
ings and works of art were destroyed.

ing: The friends of President Harrison,
who have had occasion to see and talk
with him of late, are very much con
cerned about his condition, and express
fear that his health will break down be
fore the close of his administration. It
is sa ; d the president's health is tbe chief
argument used by bis friends to have
him accept the overtures made by Stan
ford university, to go to California, and
that it is not at all unlikely that he will
agree to deliver a course of lectures for
Washington, Jan. s.—ln view of the
statement published that President Har
rison's health is failing and likely to

health and had not in four years been

THE NEXT SEN AT E.
Republicans Bent Jon Getting Control of
It by Hook or Crook.
Washington, Jan. 5. —The Republican
senators met in caucus thia morning to
consider the order of business. The
initial steps were taken toward the be
ginning of a bitter fight for the control
of toe next senate. If there has been
aDy belief that the Republicans in
tended permitting the organization of
the next senate to go by default, that
belief is shattered by tbe action taken
The committee consisting of Teller,
Hoar, Mitchell, Chandler and Higgins,
all Republican members of the com
mittee on privileges and elections,
waa appointed to take special charge
of the subject of organizing the
next senate, and incidentally thereto

the western states where a fight, ie cow
on._ The senators are all astute pol
iticians and will see that nothing is
done to jeopardize the chances of the
Republicans, and will prepare all the
cases, so that in the event ol contepts,
which are inevitable, the beet possible
front can be made. •
The question of order |of business is
secondary to the more important matter
of organization, and a committee was
appointed, in the persona of Senators
Sherman, Frye, Dolph, Cullom, Piatt,
Washburn, and Quay. Tbfv will can-
VAse tho situation and report at another

Modksto, Cal., Jan. 5 —The mystery
Btirrounding the killing of Lafayette
