ligation of the bribery charges made by Representative Otis of Hamilton county. After the election of Hanna the house adjourned until tomorrow with its reso lution still under consideration. Consid eration of this resolution was resumed in the senate this afternoon and adopted by a vote of 22 to 6. The dissenting vote 3 were Senators Blake, Carpenter, Gar field, May, Sullivan and Voight, who ex plained that they regarded the matter ns buncombe. The Republicans voting with the Democrats for the adoption of the resolution were Senators Burke, Ca ble, Crandall, Lutz, Riley, Wrightman and Wolcott. There were eight senators absent or not voting. The committee of five appointed under this resolution be gan its work tonight, but nothing addi tional was developed. After their ses sion tomorrow both branches of the legislature will adjourn until Monday. After the adoption of the resolution to Investigate all bribery charges, the Bramley bill to repeal the fifty jnears street railway franchise law was dis k -ssed at length with many passages on c recent senatorial contest. The bill was ay" and Passed. Amoftf/ the representatives druing the afternoon % there was considerable agi ta tion of a proposition to reorganize the house by ousting Speaker Mason and all other officers of tv at bod y tnat had bo en elected by the fuslu" ten da ys ago.

At the hotels, the opposing headquarters presented the same anxious scenes. The workers on both sides showed more plainly their | weariness than on former mornings. The Hanna hustlers were up all night on the watch. Their opponents spe.it the entire night in getting some mem bers out of bed and staying near others, i There were several collisions in the hotels between opposing workers and Wife of the Ohio legislator who accuses Senator Hanna of attemptecf bri bery. She was kept all night in a Columbus hotel by Senator Hanna's agents in their efforts to influence .her to influence her husbr.ucl's vote, for Haxtna. the watchmen before daybreak, and their feeling had not abated any when I they met again in the State House. There were reports about attempts to abduct certain members during the night, but none were lost in any of the alleged escapades. There seemed to be less curiosity over the result of tho joint ballot for Senator than over the well-advertised dramatic performance ln connection with charges of bribery, conspiracy and other wrongs, charged by both sides against each other. And in the midst of all the cheering there were sighs of relief from the wearying suspense over the action of doubtful statesmen. It will be two weeks next Friday since Senator Hanna arrived here, but most of his workers had been here over two weeks then, and tome of his opponents had been on the sleepless vigil for months. Even those who had everything to gain nnd nothing to lose seemed to dread further tension of a deadlock. All were ready for the cur tain to drop ■When the House convened at 10 o'clock, Representative C> t iwas promptly recognized on a question of privilege. He made a lone statement regarding the Boyce bribery charges. He said it was due the House and him self to have an investigation before pro ceeding further in the election of a United State Senator, and offered a reso lution accordingly. On a motion to suspend the rubs for immediate consideration of the n solu tion, the vote stood 52 ayes, 56 nays. On the motion being declared lo3t, there were cheers on the Republican side. The vote was precisely the Bame on all the votes cast as on the ballots for the short and lons term Senator yes terday. There are 109 members of the House. The 56 Hanna men always voted solidly. Representative Cramer was absent, and is still very sick. The other Democratic members and the bolting Republicans, 52 in all, voted to gether for an Investigation before elect ing a Senator. Representative Stew art, one of the Hanna leaders, said there would come a proper time for the in vestigation, but this was the time for electing a Senator. He moved to take a recess until noon. There v. ere num erous dilatory motions, on which the vote always stood 50 to 52. The motion for a recess of five minutes was di rent ed —ayes 52, nays 56, Bramley, Mas.in. Jones, Otis, Rutan and Scott always voting with the Democrats. IN THE SENATE COLUMBUS, 0., Jan. 12.—Soon after Ihe Senate assembled Senator Burke of Cleveland offered a motion demanding an Investigation of the charge that mon ey had been offered by workers In the In terest of Senator Hanna for the vote of Representative Otis. The resolution as introduced by Senator Burke provid ed for a committee of Aye, consisting of Senators Burke, Robinson, Finck, Garfield and Long. Senator Burke af terwards requested to have his name stricken out and that of Senator Sulli van was submitted. The committee, as constituted, consisted of three Demo crats and two Republicans. A long and bitter discussion followed, led by Sena tor Burke, for immediate consideration at the proper time. During the discus sion it was charged that the considera tion of this resolution had been defeated in the House nnd that it was a matter that concerned the House and not the Senate, but that it had been precipitated.

Hanna elected Sen ator for the unexpired term, ending .March 4, 1899. | Owing to ihe cheering nnd noise, the i chair allowed the jolllfiers to retire be fore the less exciting vote for the long i term began. The ballot for the long term proceeded without much interest being manifest. The result for tho long term was the same as that lor the short term. Gen ROBERT E. M'KISSON LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, JANUARY 13, 1898 eral Wiley again voted for Lentz. Han na received 73; McKisson, 70, and Lents, 1, with one absent. After Hanna was declared elected Sen ator for the long term pandemonium reigned supreme in the hall of the House. The galleries went wild, and the Senators and Representatives par ticipated. On motion of Senator Alexander, which was unanimously carried, a com mittee ot five was appointed to escort Senator Hanna to the hall. The galler ies and lobbies loudly vlva-voced for the entmmittee to escort Senator Hanna to thte hall. Representatives Stewart, Ice land and Bolin and Senators Sullivan arid Alexander were appointed on this coimmittee, and while they were en roaite to the Neil House the crowd in dulged in all sorts of demonstrations. FORAKER FAILED COLUMBUS, 0.. Jan. 12.—Senator Pinnna has received over 2000 congratu latory telegrams. All the members of tlu? National Republican committee nnd n iany state committeemen and other n Republicans from all the si ntes and every county ln Ohio are mc l uded. Mr. Hanna sent this message tc/ President McKinley: Columbus, 0., Jan. 12. To Hon Wm. McKinley, president, "Washington: God reigns and the Republican party s fill lives. M. A. HANNA. Among the telegrams received were the following: EXECUTIVE MANSION, WASH INGTON, D. C, Jan. 12.—Mrs. McKinley Joins me in heartfelt congratulations. The result now plainly forecasted is one in which our citizenship, irrespective of party, will profoundly rejoice. I con gratulate you heartily, not only upon a victory beneficial to the country but upon your leadership in a contest worthily won, under the most trying circumstances. (Signed) WM. M'KINLEY. Secretaries Bliss. Sherman, Alger and Attorney-General McKenna were among the first to send congratulations. Up to midnight no congratulatory telegram had been received from Sena tor Foraker. The Columbus Glee club headed a largo delegation of citizens that called on Senator Hanna. Mr. Hanna ad dressed them at considerable length. Among other things he said: "The lines are drawn now. We know the difference between patriot and traitor and it so happens that aside from > Ing chosen for tho United States sen ate by the people, I also happen to oc cupy the exalted position given me by the Republican party of the United States as chairman of the national com mittee of that party and ln my official capacity I now utter the proclamation ihat no traitors axa wanted in our camp." H. M. Dougherty, chairman of the Re publican state central committee, fol lowed Mr. Hanna. He announced that the state central committee would soon be called together for the purpose of selecting a man representing the Re publican party of Ohio upon the national committee as the colleague of Mr. Han na, who is not a traitor to his party. This was readily understood to mean that an attempt would l>e made to remove Mr. Kuartz from the national committee. VETOED TOO LATE Gavigan Wants Pay as a Sociological Expert SACRAMENTO, Jan. 12—Governor Budd was cited to appear in tHe superior' court of this county on Saturday next and show cause why he does not declare a certain bill passed by the last legisla ture a law. This order is made in re sponse to the application of W. J. Gavi gan of San Francisco for a writ of man date to that effect. The last legislature passed t* bill cre ating the office of sociological expert in cities having 25.000 school children or over (San Francisco). Ten days after Its passage Governor Budd vetoed the bill, but Gavigan—in whose interest It is said to have been passed—has always claimed that more than ten days elapsed before the governor sent his veto to the senate, and that the bill is in force. The San Francisco authorities elected Gavigan to the office, and he brought the action against the governor to compel him to promulgate the bill as a law. Gavigan's claim is that the governor allowed nearly three hours in excess of the legal ten days to pass before the senate was notified of his veto. A Parcel Agreement NEW YORK. Jan. 12.—Francis B. Loomis, United Stated Minister to Vene zuela, who has been here for some weeks on official business, will start Tuesday for Caracas. Mr. Loomis says: "The main business which brought me back home so soon after going to Venezuela was the question of package postal agreement between the two countries. It is now likely that a parcel convention may be arranged soon which will be of great benefit, especially to the manu facturers of the United States. I take back with me the draft of an agreement which may eventually be entered into between the two countries."

SEX SCIENCE Is Reduced to a System by Prof. Schenck FOURTEEN SEVERAL TIMES THE SAVANT MATTE TESTS AND ESCAPED DETECTION Jacob's Pilled Chestnut Tree Is Useless Unless Some Wild Westerner Should Need a Club Associated Press Special Wire NEW YORK, Jan. 12.—A dispatch to the World from Vienna, says: Prof. Schenck of the Vienna Univer sity, whose reported marvelous discov ery of the secret of sex startled civiliza tion last week, has made the following statements of the results of his experi ments. Dr. Schenck, for more than four years, has been absorbed in the study of the development of the human and loweranimals' embryos.and Is the recog nized leading authority in that branch of science. He published in 1865 the first eseay on the development of the em bryonical heart and since that time has written a whole library on the develop ment of man and beast from the ovum or egg. He is a thoroughly serious scientist, who does not exploit his dis covery for money. He refuses to treat patients for fees, however tempting. The correspondent asked: "Can you give positive, direct informa tion of your discovery with regard to the treatment of women anxious to have sons?" Prof. Schenck answered with deter- mlnation: "I give the treatment under seal to the Vienna Imperial Academy of Sciences, where it will be tested and published. But I can tell you the results of my dis covery and let you have the scientific facts upon which my discovery is based. What lies between is my secret. If 1 say I can determine the sex of a child to be born, you must understand that I can bring; it about that the woman shall become the mother of a son and not ot a daughter. My treatment has no other aim than causing boys to be born. I made my discovery many years ago and subjected it to protifs. "It is by my own choice that I am fath er of six sons, four of whom are alive and strong. I have achieved similar results in the family of relatives, friends and some persons in whose ability to keep a secret I had full confidence—four teen cases in all. "But I cannot trust every stranger that may appeal to me. I must be able to watch the patient,must be certain that my directions are scrupulously obeyed. I consider every new case an experi ment, a test of my discovery. I must have certainty. I can bring it about with human beings or with animals which have one young at a time, that this offspring shall be male and with animals bearing many together, that the majority shall be male. When I ob served hens I numbered the eggs, de termining beforehand whether a male or a female bird would come out. I scare ly ever was mistaken." The World's correspondent remarked that no doubt he would be appealed to by many families, especially where large fortunes are at stake. The professor re plied: "I am no man of business, but ex clusively a scientist. I am not anxious to gain a fortune, but desire above everything that my discovery shall be scientifically confirmed and recognized. "The Academy of Sciences alone can do this. "I have accepted no reward for the successful cases I have treated. They are precious to me beyond gold as proof of the reality of my discovery. "I have achieved success in a family in which the desire for a birth'of a son was intense. If I told you the name of the head of the family, you wouSd know that for him to pay $10,000 for my ser vices would be no more than for you to pay a doctor for examining your throat. But I did not accept any reward. "All former theories and hpotheses have all been proven false. According to my discovery, the man has no Influ ence whatever on the sex of the child. It all depends upon the woman. But the treatment must not begin afjter preg nancy. "It must begin before conception, as the woman must be put into a position to enable her to develop a male child, from the ovum. The assertion that the ovum in the female ovary possesses the male or the female germ already de veloped before impregnation is false. On the contrary the embryo is sexless dur ing several stages ot development. It is possible that my treatment can develop a male child even in this stage, but there is no certainty of it. "My discovery is based on the scien tific fact that the blood in a grown-up man contains five million blood corpus cles, the bearers of life-giving nourish ing oxygen, while the blood ln a grown up woman contains only four millions. "This difference is the basis- of differ ences in sex and of the different moral and physical working powers in man and woman. This proportion is observ able in the slightest quantity of blood from a man or woman. All my efforts are directed toward producing in the embryo the right number of blood cor puscles required by the made. I have succeeded in attaining this effect by suitable nourishment of the woman and by influencing the metabolic process in the change of matter." VOTE TO STRIKE The Union Weavers Will Not Stand a Cut NEW BEDFORD, Mass., Jan. 12.—The vote of the Weavers' Union last night was G.",G for striking to 5 against. The State Board of Arbitration accomplished nothing on its visit to New Bedford, and the situation is practically unchanged from what it was before the visit of the board. The board met with the manu facturers and the representatives of the Spinners' Union at the office of one of the mill treasurers and the situation was generally discussed. Several prop ositions looking toward the settlement .of the strike were made, but no agree ment could be reached. In addition to holding a secret meeting, the members of the conference were pledged to se crecy and at the close of the meeting they would give out nothing. The only thing they would say was that tho visit of the board had not amounted to any thing and there was no difference in the outlook than before the conference. The New England Association of Weavers has voted to permit the Weavers' Union In this city to engage In a strike against the present cut-down and a Committee on Legislation has been appointed to look out for labor matter at the State House this winter.

Brown of Hollister in this city, was captured this evening on a ranch thirty miles from town. Erwin had been given food and shel ter by Brown, but was an inveterate gambler, and his cupidity made him ready for crime when he learned that Brown had $31)0. He was taking the money when Brown awoke, and Erwin then attempted to murder him, beating his defenseless victim over the head with a heavy revolver. Erwin escaped and started south on foot. He reached the Weber ranch last night and was engaged in plowing when the officers from this city put him under arrest. He was brought back to town tonight. None of the stolen money has been recovered, and it is thought that it is buried on the Weber ranch. The prisoner protests that he is innocent, claiming that he arose Saturday morning, went out to get a drink and when he returned he found Brown bruised and battered. Fearing he would be arrested on suspicion, he at once took flight. No stock is taken in this story. Erwin was formerly a pros perous farmer of Klamath county, Or. BAD YANKEES Plan a Bobbery of a Mexican Gam bling Hall EL PASO, Tex., Jan. 12.—The police of Juarez, Mexico have made a discovery that has caused a sensation on both sides of the Rio Grande. The officials were informed that a band of Ameri cans had arranged to hold up the Juarez Fiesta gambling hall at 11 o'clock last Sunday night, but the robbers decided to postpone their raid. A half-breed told the police that if they would search a certain saloon the arms of the robbers would be found. The police found in the saloon twelve rifles and several hundred rounds of cartridges. The saloon-keeper, James Hall, and Lily Rhime, were arrested. If the robbers had carried out their scheme Sunday night they would have secured $30,000 in the principal gambling hall, where the money Is openly piled on the tables. It Is believed that the notorious train robber, "Black Jack," planned the rob bery and is in hiding In Juarez. Reason for Fear VANCOUVER, B. C, Jan. 12.—1t is feared that Captain Grant and Han« Johnson, a deck hand on the steamer Transfer, have been drowned in Fraser River. On Sunday last the two men left Westminster in a rowboat.

STRUCK BY A CYCLONE (Continued From Page One) farmers here, who crowded the cheaper boarding houses and wagon yards. The National house, a two-story frame, went down ln the wreckage with fifteen In mates, but all escaped without serious Injury. George Carter's house was one of the first struck, and it turned completely over, and Is now supported on the roof. A half pane of glass was driven through Carter's body, almost severing his head from the trunk. The beautiful National cemetery is a wreck. The huge trees aru uprooted, the lodge demolished and the walls torn down. Fort Smith's $50,000 school house build ing;, the finest one of the kind ln the southwest, was badly wrecked, but was one of the few buildings on which there was any tornado Insurance. The tornado destroyed two historic buildings. Judge Parker's residence is badly wrecked, and the old Rector man sion, where Allen Pike passed his days, is a pile of ashes, the ruins having caught fire from a lamp. The First Baptist church and the Central Methodist church were rased to the ground, and are now only a scattered pile of kindling wood. The church of the Immaculate Conception and Brownscombe Memorial church lost their spires and sustained other damage. It is now thought all persons ln the storm-wrecked buildings have been ac counted for. CROSSED THE RIVER The tornado crossed the Potoau River and swept the National Cemetery, lay ing low tha walls and demolishing the residence of R. G. Baldwin. Its path was about two hundred yards wide and for that distance, across the reserve, to Ninth street, where it struck Garrison avenue, It left devastation In its wake. The brick building owned by Fagan Bourt was shattered and the east end of the two-story frame building Just north of it was blown completely out. Across the street was the frame build ing known as the Wellington Hotel. It was completely demolished and only a heap of debris shows where it once stood. Twenty-five people were ln the house at the time and all escaped unin jured. The house occupied by George Carter, formerly engineer at the Grand Opera House, was turned completely upside down and stands as evidence of the ter rific power of the tornado. Mr. Carter was killed outright, a Jagged pane of glass nearly severing his head from his body. Electric Park, used as a cotton yard, was wiped completely out. A number of houses were totally demolished, among them being the Krone residence, Frank Magruder's cottage, R. W. For don's home and the house of John Greb. Dr. Bell's barn was laid flat on the ground and Mrs. Annie Byrd's home was badly damaged. The handsome resi dence of Judge Thomas Bates stood right in the path of the tornado but the same fury which destroyed the building occupled by I. Isaacson, on Garrison avenue, passed it, leaving It almost un scathed. All the window glass facing the storm was blown out, but no great damage was done. RELIEF WORK The Citizens' Relief company has $10, --000 in hand for assisting sufferers. President Robinson of the Frisco rail road, unsolicited, sent his check for $1000. The Missouri Pacific also con tributed $1000. Business is practically abandoned all over the city and men of all classes are assisting in clearing the debris. IN CRAWWFORD COUNTY VAN BUREN, Ark., Jan. 12.—The tor nado that descended upon Fort Smith last night crossed the Arkansas river one half of a mile south of her and tore a path two hundred yards wide through this Crawford county, and dealt death and devastation to evrything in its path. A score or more of houses were blown down and many persons were hurt. Chas. Wright was instantly killed by his house being blown down on him. The house of Mrs. Bash was demolished and she was crushed to death and two of her children fatally hurt. It is estimated one hundred head of cattle and horses were In the path of the tornado and were killed or injured so badly that they had to be killed. It is five miles in a direct line from Van Bur en to Fort Smith and debris from there was strewn over the ground three miles beyond here.
