No business was trans acted during tihe first hour of the ses sion. The wvnflcers of both sides were busily engaged in the lobbies. Senator Hanna. Mayorr McKisson. Mr. Kurtz and otter leaders kept up the contest at the hotels. The call of the House showed that Representative Cramer, Democrat, of PauldUng Count y, was the only absentee, and the Sergermt-at-Arms was dis patched for hlin. Mr. Cramer Is very sick and his physician forbade his at tendance, but :«r. Cramer requested to be carried to the hall of the House. On the first ca 1! of the House, Dunton, of Morgan, an d Manuel, of Montgom ery, did not respond, but were soon found in the I Jbby.

He offered a r«'solution that a commit tee of five be aj ipolnted at once to inves tigate these etpecific chaises and any other charges of bribery affecting any member of the House. Mr. Astlford moved to amend the reso lution so that si iid committee of live shall be empowered to investigate any other charges or peirsi>ns, in connection witli the election of United States Senator. Ayes and nays were called on every motion and there was an attempt at this juncture to delay the proceedings by the calls. A motion wan made on the Democratic Side to suspend the rules and consider the Kenny resc lution at once. This was defeated by the same vote of .".0 no -s to 52 yeas, when there was aguin applause on the Republican side. The votes were on strict party lines with the exception of Speaker Martin, of Cuyahoga, Representative Brantley, of Cuyahoga, Jc lies, of Stark.

Smith, of Delaware. The name of Robert E. McKisson, of Cleveland, was presented by Represen tative Bramley. Representative Li land praised Sena tor Hanna in a dignified manner, but Representative Smith referred to the treachery in the party in strong terms. This brought out Representative Bram ley in vigorous terms in presenting the name of McKisson. There were loud demonstrations of hisses with cries of •Traitor.'' The nomination of McKisson was sec onded by Jones, of Stark, also a Repub lican. The Democrats took no part ex cept In voting and applauding. Jones applauded President McKinley in his speech and denounced Senator Hanna. Representative Dross announced that he had intended to present the nam- of Jephtha Gerard, but he would not now do so at the request of that gentleman.

"It is not so much a matter of person allty with me," said he, "as it is a ques tion of keeping and upholding the in tegrity of the party, and of giving heei to the will of the people." The excited crowd lifted the Senato from the crowd and man after man em braced him while othi rs wen ahakini both his hands. Finally the crowd wa held back and got into line and for full; in hour the Senator stood and graspei the hands and listened to tin.- exultan congratulations of the crowd. "Praist God, From Whom All Blessings Flow,' and kindred expressions, filled the all In choral singing. One voter, with up lifted hands, shouted, "Senator, this takes a load off me as big as a freight car." At 12:30 the House adjourned nnd tht hall was used for a jollification meeting with the crowd singing, "Praise God, From Whom All Blessings Flow."

THE AMERICAN HORSE MAY FIND BUYERS IN MARKETS OF EUROPE Low Prices Have Driven Breeders Out of Business While the Foreign Demand Increases ST. PAUL. Minn.. Jan. 11.—The con vention of the American Livestock Feeders' and Freeders assembled here today. There were fully 200 delegates in the hall, and it is estimated thnt another hundred arrived this evening. Bishop Gilbert delivered the invoca tion. Chairman Bchmuler, who has been at the head of the committee In charge of the management, delivered a brief address. Mayor Doran and Gov. Clough greeted the convention. W. J. Berry of Chicago, in the ad dress of the morning on "The Expoit Horse—How to Breed," gave it as his 1 own opinion, as well as that of expert j horsemen everywhere, that this coun try will soon witness a horse famine. The ruinous prices of the past few years had driven farmers and breeders out of business. In the states which had long been famous for their fine horses the number of first-cinss animals was not one-tenth what it was before the fall in price. It was now the hardest kind of work to pick up the best class of horses. In the meantime the foreign demand for American horses was grow ing. All the markets were crowded with foreigners looking for first-class animals. The American horse industry would soon be foremost among the branches of agriculture if the farmers would give it attention. It is laid with in the power of horse breeders in this country to cultivate the foreign de mand for the American horse until it builds up a trade which could never be taken away from them, and in which millions of money might be made. He did not advise every farmer to go int ■ horse raising, but for those who had the necessary education and a fancy for that branch of stock raising it was a most promising field. Five classes of horses w ere demanded for export: First, a well bred coach horse: sec ond, a cab horse: third, the omnibus horse: fourth, the draft horse, and fifth, the American trotter. The address was followed by discussion. A committee on credentials was ap pointed. W. H. Anderson of Chicago present ed a resolution calling for a closer in spection of imported it was adopted.

Jan. 11.—Patrick A. largey, president of the State Savings bank and one of the best-known citizens of Butte, was shot and killed In the bank building about 1 oclock this after noon, by Thomas J. Riley. Riley en tered the bank flveorten minutes before committing the bloody act. He called l.argey to the cashier's window, and the two talked for five minutes or more. They were conversing in ordinary tones and there was nothing to indicate that their talk was otherwise than friendly. Suddenly Riley drew a gun and shot through the window at Largey., Tbe bullet struck the latter in the left arm and shattered the bone. Largey stooped down, and had he continued in that posi tion he might have esce.ped with his life, em he was protected by the counter. However, he rose partly, and as he did so Riley fired a second shot. The bullet struck Mr. Largey squarely in the fore head and he fell ovt r on the floor dead. The murderer starw.nl for the front door on Park street, and as he passed tbe teller's window he took a shot at those behind the railing. The bullet narrow ly missed Frank Holmes, one of the clerks, dug a hole in his desk and went through a glass in ome of the windows on the Main-street s»de of the building Riley then rushed out of the Park-street door, thrusting his pistol into his pocket as he did so. William Huselton, a customer of the bank, was outside the railing when the shooting occurred. He made a rush fol the man. but, deterred by the sight of the weapon, did not grab him. He fol lowed Riley, however. Tlie murderer hurried west on Park street, followed by Huselton. who kept calling out to ar rest the man. Officers attracted by the shooting did so, and he was taken to jail. "He fooled me too long." exclaimed Riley, when he arrived at the county jail, "and I killed him. He kept prom ising me work, but he did not give me any. and I could not stand it any long er. Now. if you want to hang me for it. all right. Give me a quick trial and end it." The murderer has but one leg. He lost the other in an explosion of the powder warehouse at the Montana Central yards and has since worn a cork leg. Largey was manager of one of th' companies whose warehouse exploded and caused the loss.of fifty-eight lives. In contradiction to his statement that Largey refused to help him. it is well known that the banker frequently helped him. He secured employment for him a number of times, but Riley was unable to hold a position any length of time. Largey also occasionally sup plied him with money. It is asserted that the killing was the result of a conspiracy or an understand ing to kill more than one man whd had managerial or proprietary interests in the two warehouses that were the scene of the explosions. These warehouses belonged to the Hutte Hardware company, of which Largey was manager, and the Kenyon - Connell company, of which W. R. Ken yon was the head. Suits for damages aggregating a quarter of a million of dollars were brought, and several ver dicts were secured, but the explosions and subsequent attachments had ex hausted the resources of the Kenyon- Connell company, white the Butte Hard . are company had gone into liquidation and th.- judgments are unsatisfied. Riley was taken to Deer Lodge peni tentiary this afternoon, in company with Bob Chadwell, another murderer, to n vent lynching, which looked very ssible. They were smuggled out of town in the poor farm ambulance. WANTS A MILLION For Losses Occurring Through the Spanish Censorship NEW YOIIK, Jan. 11.—Vice-Presi- lent Thomas F.

LOUIS, Jan. 11.—The St. Louis and New Orleans Anchor line made an as signment at noon today to Archibald Woods, conveying to him for the benefit of creditors all of the steamboats, barges, stock In stbre. elevators, land ings and other property of the company of every kind.

These short lines were all taken into the Anchor Line company. The small boats unsuitable for the trade were condemned, laid up or sold, and new boats were built. Two lines were started -one between St. Louis and Memphis and the other between St. Louis and New Orleans. At the various towns along the Mississippi river freight elevators were built, and the controlling interest in these elevators was held by the Anchor line or people Interested "Between 1864 and 1880 the Anchor line practically controlled the traffic on the waterway between St. Louis and Mem phis and New Orleans. About 18S0 the Mississippi Valley Transportation com pany was organized. This line, with its powerful stern-wheel towboats and its grain barges, cut into the Anchor line's business. The barges and towboats could be operated cheaper than the An chor line's floating palaces. Railroads w ere built on each side of the Mississip pi, and the passenger travel went from the boats to the railroads. Secretary Forbes Zeigler said today "The vast amount of liabilities has not been determined, but there Is no doubt the assets will cover them fully. Hard luck has pursued us for two years. Dis aster followed disaster until we were temporarily forced to the wall. When the present Anchor line company was organized there were seven boats, the finest on the river, with an average val uation of $60,000. There are only three boats left now.
