All the State Troops Gone to Their Homes. A Populist Chaplain's Sensational Invocation. Rumored Attempts to Assassinate the Populist Oorernnr— The Republi can House Reoognlxed by the District Court. By the Associated Press.] Topeka, Kan., Feb. 18.—Peace pre vails. At 10 o'clock this morning the last of the troopa called here departed, and the last vestige of grim-vieagjsd war disappeared with them. A large party of Populistß from Lawrence tried to steal a march on tbe Republicans last night by seeking tr enter representative hall, bat the Re publicans had taken the precaution to leave the hall in the hands of an armed guard, and the invaders were driven away. The action was taken without the sanction of the governor or Populist house. A sensational tbayer, Tbe Populist chaplain of tbe senate at the opening of tbe session this morning caused a sensation by his prayer, which was us follows: "May God have mercy on thiß treason-infested state. Amen I" The Republican house met this morn ing, transacted considerable routine business, and adjourned till this after noon. a startling rumor. The startling rumor was circulated freely this afternoon that an attempt wka to be made to assassinate Governor Llewellins. A telephone message re ceived at the sheriff's oflice to the effect that his presence was desired at the cap itol to protect the governor's life strengthened the force of the rumor. Sheriff Wilkenaon at once went to tho capitol to investigate. He found tho governor's office surrounded by guards and the corridors filled with excited Populists. Alter much inquiry he finally located the man who was said to be the would-be assassin, and who proved to be a half-witted man from Cherokee county. After the sheriff as certained the facts he put tbe man out of tho building, disarmed him and told rrnn togo rmjis. ma man eouid not give his name. The sheriff did not con sider the case serious enough to warrant the man's arrest. REPUBLICAN HOUSE SUSTAINED. The district couit this morning sus tained the motion of the Republican house for a permanent injunction res training the state treasurer from paying warrants issued by anthority of the legislative appropriation bill passed by the Populist house. This is virtually a recognition of the constitutionality of the Republican house, and the membera are correspondingly jubilant. The at torney general haß filed a notice of ap peal to the supreme conrt. A majority of the Populiat members had alreadydrawn the money coming to them before tbe decision waa rendered. In all some $20,000 has been paid out by the treasurer. The question is, if the decision holds, whether the treasurer will have to make the amount good. ANOTHER TEST CASE. Early in the month the Republican house summoned L. C. Gunn, Democrat, of La Bette county, to appear and testify in a contested election caae. He re fused, and the sergeant-at-arms arrested him and brought him here. He applied for a writ of habeas corpus to the su preme couft, alleging that tbe Republi can house was not legal, thus bringing tbe question to a direct issue. His mo tion was beard this morning. The Pop uliat attorney-general asked the court to dismiss the case, on the ground that it waß collusive and arranged in advance between the Republican house and Gunn. Finally, on motion of the attor ney-general, the hearing was postponed till Tuesday. MILITIA OFFICERS SUSPENDED. Adjutant-General Artz tod3y aua pended the following officers of the state militia: Lieutenant Bird, Topeka; Ad jutant Nelson, Topeka, aud Paymaster- General Bonebrake, Topeka. The sus pensions were not made for disobedience of orders, but because the men are not sufficiently in sympathy with the gov ernor to explicitly carry out his orders. The captain of the company at Kansas City, Kansas, whose company refused to come to Topeka when ordered to do so by the governor will alao be suspended, as will a number of other officer*.

Sacramemto, Feb. 18.—Immediately after the senate convened this morning Seawell presented a report of the minor ity of the committee on corporations relative to the reassessment bill.

SHOWERED WITH BULLETS). Vengeance Wreaked on a Negro for In sulting a Young Lady. Mobebly, Mo., Feb. 18.—Yeaterday afternoon John Hughes, a negro, made insulting advances to a young lady on the street. He was quickly arrested and hustled into the lockup. About 10 o'clock thia morning, while the atten tion of the guard was diverted, three unknown men, but supposed to be brothers of the young lady, entered the cell room and literally showered bullets at the negro. He is not dead but will probably die. Tbe girl's brothers have been arrested. Hughes waa studying for the ministry. M. DE LESSEPS' MONEY. WAS IX USED TO-CORRUPT AMERI- CAN OFFICAT.S? A Mystorloua Chango in the Sentiment of the Hayes Administration on the Subject of the Mon roe Doctrine. Washington, Feb. 18. —In the Pana ma investigation today, J. Floyd King, an ex-member of congress from Louis iana, testified that while a member he assisted at an investigation on the sub ject of the canal and frequently saw the late President Hayes on the subject, iHa ia-. Hayes wa--. strongly opposed to French control of the canal, and he eu logized Hayes as a man of the highest honor and integrity. King testified that Hayes' adminis tration was strongly in favor of uphold ing the Monroe doctrine and hostile to the French company. Secretary of the Navy Thompson waß strongly opposed to the French company and vehement in his expression that the Monroe doc trine ehould be asserted against the Panama Canal company. Mr. Geary—What then did you think of the retirement of Secretary Thompson to become a representative of the Pana ma Canal company ? King—l thought it most unpreced ented action. I had not the slightest premonition he was going to resign. Mr. Geary asked without receiving any very definite response a number of ques tions as to whether or not at the time the canal matters were under discussion there was not a good deal of talk about the use of improper means to influence legislation. King replied that a painful fact to his mind was that after De Leesepa' visit there was a lack of any feeling regard ing the assertion of the Monroe doctrine. Tbe atmosphere sug gested that public sentiment had mysteriously changed concerning the Panama company. "I know of no improper menus used to change the sentiment, and cannot recall any cir cumstances, save that one lady, now dead, aaid to me in badinage, as I took it, something about 'Better get Borne of De Leaseps' money.' I turned it off and it passed as a joke, and perhaps she meant it as auch. That is the only time any improper speech about such matters was made in my hearing. I think it was immediately after De Lesseps waß here." Thia evening Representatives Storey and Patterson of the investigating com mit tee left for Terre Haute, Ind., to ex amine ex-Secretary of tbe Navy Thomp son. Coat of Producing Precloue Metals. Washington, Feb. 18.—Senator Stew art today submitted an exhaustive re port from the senate committee on mines and mining, relative to the cost of the production of gold and eilver. The conclusions drawn are that the cost of production of silver and gold are about equal to the established ratio, 25 8-10 grains of gold to 412'n grains of silver, and in both casea the cost of produc tion, taking account of all legitimate investments, is much greater than the coinage value.

At noon he sent word to an inquirer that he had no engagement to meet Corbett's repre sentatives today, and he did not know when he would meet them. He intimat ed that he did not care. Corbett's manager, Brady, said this afternoon, regarding tbe proposed match: "I exceeded my authority aa manager when I offered $2500 out of the purse for the loser. Corbett wants the winner to take all. I'll consent to pay $2500 to the loser, but not a cent more. I don't think Mitchell wants to fight and I am of the opinion that the match will fall through." A BOMBSHELL AMONG THE BPORTS. Superintendent Byrnes' action forbid ding match negotiations was a perfect bombshell among the sports. The World building, the appointed place for negotiations, was surrounded by an im mense crowd, which even pressed into the lower corridors. None of the prin cipals appeared.

After very liltle preliminary discus sion Mitchell announced that he was willing to concede that the winner should have all the stakes. The state ment was greeted with profound satis faction, as it disposed of the only objec tion in tbe way of the fight. Mitchell went on to say that as Corbett seemed determined to wiu or lose everything, he (Mitchell) would not let it stand in the way of a match being arranged. He intimated that he thought Corbett was obstinate only to make it apoear that he (Mitchell) did not want to fight. articles not signed yet. Superintendent Byrnea'e action was discussed and it was decided, as a safe guard, not to sign articles at present and withdraw the money held by Dick inson. Accordingly, each man withdrew hia $10,000. An agreement waß then drawn up that the representatives of each party ehould meet on Saturday, February 25tb at 9 p. in., on the Canadian side of the Niagara falls and there deposit the stakes and sign articles. Mitchell and Brady affixed their signatures to the agreement. It was understood that tbe arrangements as made on Friday in reference to the fight, should be considered ac binding.

It was as serted today on the board that there was a decline of 6 per cent yesterday due to calling for more margin on loans by the Mercantile Trust company. The pool was apparently unable to respond and the collateral, consisting in a great part of Reading stocks and bonds, waa said to have been sold ont through Grant Brothers.

At the office of tbe Reading company it is stated there is nothing in the con dition of the company's affairs to war rant the decline of the stock. None of the rumors current, it was declared, have any foundation, and the company's finances are sound and its relations har monious. The withdrawal of tbe pay cars yesterday, it waß further said, waa due to the fact that errors and confusions had occurred in making up the accounts, and the cars will go out Monday with tbe pay for the employees.
