COLUMBUS, O., Jan. 6.—The senate has seated Iden, the contesting Republican, in the place of Gaumer, Democrat, and there will therefore be 93 votes in the Republican senatorial caucus. The num ber of votes necessary to nominate, however, still remains 47. Senator Sherman seems to be gaining strength every hour, but the Foraker men show no less confidence in the re sult than they have shown from the first. Chairman Hahn, of the state Re publican executive committee, who has been managing Senator Sherman's can didacy, said to the United Press: Senator Sherman will have 56 votes in the caucus—15 from the senate and 41 from the house. This is uo supposition. We know just how every man we claim will vote. We have no doubt at all about the result. No, I will furnish no list of the names of the men who will vote for Sherman, but I will say that there are no 'doubtful' men to us, we know and have known for some time just how every man will vote. Outside of the Foraker headquarters the opinion seems to prevail generally that it is impossible now to elect Foraker. TO REDISTR1CT OHIO. A. Bill Introduced Which Would Give Republi!»ii* Seventeen Congressmen. COLUMBUS. O., Jan. 6.—The first bill introduced in the general assembly after its organization was for redistricting the state for representation in congress so that the Republicans will have seven teen congressmen and the Democrats four. This city, which has been in a Democratic district for twenty years, is thrown in a Republican district, though the majority is less than 1,000 in a total vote of 35,000. The four Democratic districts will have an average majority of 10,000. Congressman Outhwaite is thrown into a Republican district. DULY ORGANIZED. The New York Legislature Beady for Business—Republicans on Hand. ALBANY, N. Y., Jan. 6—The senate was called to order at 11:20 a. m. by Lieutenant Governor Sheehan. The Republicans did not absent themselves and there were only two vacant seats, those of Senator Sexton and Senator Sherwood, the latter being judicially declared vacant. After prayer the members were sworn in alphabetically. A telegram stated that Senator Sexton was detained by illness. Charles T. Gunning, the Democratic nominee, was elected clerk by 17 to 13, Edwards, (Ind.,) voting with the Democrats. The other Demo cratic nominees for the various offices were also elected. Senator Cantor was nominated by the Democrats for president pro tem. and George Z. Irwin by the Republicans. Cantor was elected. Mr. Cantor moved the seating of Walker, (Dem.,) from the Twentv-sjv enth. Mr. Erwin asked leave io present Sherwood's case. HJ was ruled out of order and Walker was sea' t» 1. Edwards voted against him. Business then proceeded without spe cial incident. The governor's message was read and referred, and several nom inations of state officers were confirmed. The senate adjourned until next Tues day. Bush Klected Speaker. The house met and elected Robert K. Bush, Democrat, speaker. The gover nor's message was read and after elect ing officers the house adjourned until next Tuesday. In his message Governor Flower calls attention to the need of reapportionment of the state and recom mends liberal appropriation for the state exhibit at the world's fair. pr/vatf & A FRIGHTFUL WRECK. Ms Killed and Two Fatally Injur *4 ia an Illinois Collision. JACKSONVILLE Ills., Jan. 6.—• terri ble collision occurred at 1:45 a. m. on the Wabash railway at Alladin, a small station east of Hannibal. Six men were killed outright, two probably fatally in jured and many others badly hurt. The victims are: A. S. Bouchard, engineer, killed oat right. James Wilson, engineer, killed. Four Italian emigrant passengers, names unknown, killed and cremated. Henry WarbogB, fireman, of Spring field, Ills., fatally injured. Ed Conwell, fireman, not expected to live. The trains were the eastbound and the westbound Cannon Ball trains. The eastbound train had the right of way and was waiting at Alladin for the other, No. 41, to take the siding. The night was foggy and Engineer Bushart was not very well ac quainted with the run and failed to stop at the switch, bnt went rushing by into the station at a high rate of speed. He was unable to see anything ahead of him, at least this is the supposition. The engines came together with a terrific crash, and in an instant all was confu sion. To add to the horror of the scene both trains took fire, consuming the baggage and smoking cars and one chair car. The remainder of the cars were detached and saved. The body of Bushart was found pinned to the earth under his engine, and his fireman was fatally injured. Charles Wilson, th» engineer of the east bound train, was buried in the wreck, and his body has not yet been found. His fireman was severely injured, but may recover. Be sides the four Italian emigrants killed and cremated, several more were wounded. The belated train passed through here at 11 o'clock. A LIVELY GAME. Eight Georgians Killed in Bow Over a Game of Cards. MACON, Ga., Jan. 6.—Eight men were killed in a general fight at Briglits & William's turpentiue still in Clinch county. The light started with a quar rel between two of the men named Ed Williams and John Parker over alleged cheating in a game of cards. Parker began the shooting. Both he and Will iams were killed. Perished in a Snow Slide. RED CUFF, Colo., Jan. 6.—Word has been received here of the death of United States Marshal A. H. Fulford in a snow slide, at Camp Nolan, in the Fulford mining district. Mr. Fulford was a well known miner and was heav ily interested in mining property in Eagle county. He left his house at Eagle on the 31st of December to visit some property about fifteen miles dis tant. His family becoming alarmed at his long absence, began a search and followed his footsteps in the snow till they were lost in a slide, which was about a mile in width and two and one half miles in length, gradually contract ing and ending in a gulch about 400 yards wids, where the snow reaches a depth of from 75 to 100 feet. There is no doubt but Fulford was caught in this slide and suffocated. Fatal iowst Collision* CRESTON, la., Jan. 6.—At the inter section of the tracks in the Creston yards a switch engine backing east pushing a train collided witii an engine backing west with a train. The engines came together sideways, though on dif ferent tracks. Colonel McKenna, of the switch engine, was considerably bruised about the head. "Fireman W. L. Van Worman, of the switch engine, was instantly killed. Just Saved Hnll's Neck. NASHVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 6. -Talton Hall, who has killed many persons in cold blood, has been removed from Gladsville jail to save his neck. A mob was organized and would have hung liim. They advanced on the jail and were so wild that they set fire to the structure. Hall was removed to Wizena in a close covered wagon. The people of that vicinity are very angry. A lV»in Left the Trestle. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Jan. (5.—Four people were killed by the "Daisy" train on the Kentucky and Indiana bridge running off a high trestle. Several persons were injured. The wreck was a terrible one. Police Superintendent Burled. KEYPORT. N. J., Jan.

Reforut In 9Cea'» Urea*, "A Business Woman" writes to pro test against the agitation of dress reform for women, upon the ground that women's dress is in no need of reforma tion, and to propose a dress reform for men. She wants to know why men's trousers should not be cut off at the ankles she wants to know if there is comfort in a shiny shirt front or a stiff collar—the growing prevalence of flan nel, silk, cheviot and unstarched linen answers nay she asks why men should stuff a yard or two of superfluous cotton cloth into their trousers, instead of wearing shirt waists as the little shavers do she shoots the hat of man, so to speak, with a condemnation of its stiffness. Sensible men will welcome the thought of an effort to reform their dress in the direction of comfort and convenience. But our hopes are damped somewhat by the memory of the fact that, throughout the ages, when women were the architects of men's shirts, there was never known a shirt that fitted.—San Francisco Argonaut. How Some Men Waste Time. The train stopped at a little town. A commercial traveler, dealing in groceriea and tobacco, got off a crate of live chick ens was put on and the cars started again. The stopping of a train was no rare sight in that village^ for it happens two or three times every day. The peo ple had no welcome for the commercial traveler, no tears were shed over the- de parture of the chickens yet on tha sta tion steps 1 counted forty men and boys who were there when the train came in —farm boys* who ought to have been at work in the fields village boys, who might have been doing something some where, every interest of economics aud aesthetics alike calling them away from the village and off to the farms. Two men attended to all the business of the station. The solitary passenger went his own way. The rest were there because they had not the moral strength to go anywhere else. They stood there on the station steps, embodied ghosts, dead to all life and hope, with only force enough to stand around and gape.—David S. Jordan in Forum. The Aiiauttiu* Tree. The first ailanthus trees grown in America were brought from the far eas and planted in the ganleu of Burns' cof fee house on lower Broadway, opposite Bowling New York. They were much ailuiiivd hv the New York beaux Rnd belles of seventy-five years ago, from which the conclusion is drawn that fashions in odors also change.—Es change. One Way of A story is told and it is a true story that over seventy per cent, of all the baking powders sold contain either alum or ammonia, and many of these powders contain both.
