clandestiny on both sides No claims
of changes were made on either side
It was the purpose of the managers in
not holding any caucus to be able to
keep their own secret until the ballot
ing begins a week hence I is be
lieved that secret compacts are being
made that will not become known un
til the votes of members are recorded
The situation today is the same as after
the caucuses of Saturday night and
the organization of the legislature on
Monday All those who changed their
iontay
preferences yesterday were brought
back during the night to their original
places
There was much comment today on
the departure of Congressman Gros
venor for Washington after exSecre
tary Ryan and others who have re
cently ben there in the interest of
Senator Hanna The Hanna men in
sisted that there would be no legatee

Columbus Jan 5The feature of the
day was the passage in the house as
its first measure and by a unanimous
vote of the combine of the bill re
peal g the law for 50year franchises
to street railways This repealing bill
was introduced by Representative
Bromley of Cleveland who is one of
the Republicans opposing Hanna Mr
Bromley spoke for his bill Mr Box
well replied and charged Bromley with
using this bill for defense and bunco
at this time Bromley said he voted
for the 50year franchise law in the
last legislature and was sorry for i
but he did not then understand the
measure and was induced to support
i by Senator Foraker who was there
at that time The debate became gen
eral and it was freely charged by
members in their speeches that Sena
tor Hanna was at the state house two
years ago as well as Senator Foraker
lobbyng for the 50year street railway
franchise law Other proceedings in
the house were merely routine but the
old lines of Monday were drawn when
ever the steering committees so de
sired
In the senate there were no new de
velopments Senator Burke continuing
to cooperate with the Democrats
At 1 a m both branches of the gen
eral assembly met in conference to can
vass the vote of the last state election
I was a dull proceeding During the
two hours devoted to the canvassing of
the vote the senators and representatives I
tives put in the time in talking of the
senatorial contest
I was the concensus of opinion that
Hanna was short three votes and that
the opposition was becoming more con
centrated on Kurtz for the short term
and Bushnell for the long term
There was much talk in the lobbies
about the references to Senators For
aker and Hanna in the discussion of
the 50year street railway franchise
law The Republicans said Mr Hanna
was not a senator two years ago or in I
any public capacity and that he did
not come to the state capitol and ap
pear before the committee and lobby
with the members as they said the
senior Ohio senator did
The legislature completed its sessions
for the day this afternoon without I
the committees being announced The I
preferred places will not be given out i
as long as the senatorship is in doubt
I is announced that Senator Burke
the only dissenting Republican senator
is dissatisfied with the senate
dissatsfed organ
ization and will vote for reorganiza
tion
Senator Sullivan has the resolution
of the steering committee ready to
offer at any time Senator Burke names
WOMEN I THE PLOT
I
Active Interest Taken By Wives of
the Legislators
Columbus 0 Jan 5The Hanna
men laugh at the attempt to secure in
dictments against certain workers and
say that the men who are spending the
money are the ones who raise the cry
about bribery The cry of the opposi
tion has been that of bossism and
boodle during the contest
At the antiHanna headquarters they
are confidently claiming a new acces
eit n tonight but refuse to give the
nan e of the member Senator Burke
and several other members got away
from the pressure tonight by returning
ti their homes
Following close on the reports about
Mrs Griffith taking a deep interest in
the vote of her husband on the senator
ship comes a report that Mrs Snider
the wife of Representative Snider of
Greene county is taking an interest in I
the contest and is favorable to the op
r > i > sition Mr Snider attended the Re
publican house roucus last Saturday
night and voted for Boxwell for speaker
on Monday but the opposition are con
Hanna stantly after him to vote against Mr
In connection with the reports about
Representative Griffith especially about
the preference of Mrs Griffith there are
reports of the wives of other Republican
can members being enlisted in the con
test And there are reports that the
wins of some Democratic members are
urging their husbands not to vote for
any Republican senator but to stand
out for a Democrat Mr Kurtz and his
associates are reported to be unable
to control the antiHanna Republican
members for a Democratic senator and
the McLean managers are believed to
have some trouble to get all the Demo
crats to support a Republican for
crat Republcn sen
ator
Governor Bushnell and members of
his staff attended the theatre tonight
and a incident occurred to cause much
cheering for Hanna I
SENATOR BBICES ADVICE
Ineffective t Move the Three Gold
Democrats I the Combine
Columbus 0 Jan 5The scenes at
the Nell House and the Great Southern
today were continued with increased
bitterness and counter charges but no
changes are believed to have been
made at either headquarters
At the Great Southern hotel are the
Democratic and Kurtz headquarters co
opertlftg and occupying adjoining
sul es of rooms At the rooms of the
Democratic managers there was quite
a stir over telegrams from exSenator
Brice advising the Democratic mem
bers to vote for a Democrat for United
States senator and not become an at
tachment to the bolting Republicans on
national issues
Of the 65 Democrats in the legislature
only three are said to agree with Brice
on the financial question and it is said
they will not break away from the
course that is agreed upon by their I
I
Democratic colleagues I three Demo
crats should break from the
crts away com
bine Hanna could be elected
The reports about Brice taking part
caused the Democratic steering com
mittee to talk bout John R McLean
being the Democratic silver candi
date and if the combine did not go
through on the first ballot there would
Df a long deadlock with votes cast for
Tanna and Bushnell on one side and
for McLean and Brice on the other side
Representative Jones one of the doubt
ful members was not in his seat today
but remained at his hotel

Topeka Kan Jan 5The two days
conference of the leaders of the Popu
list party in this state began here this
afternoon
The greatest secrecy is maintained in
regard to the proceedings but i is
know > that the question of fusion or
no fusion was taken up for discussion
and that no definite action was taken
The matter of a special session of the
legislature is also an important num
ber on the programme of the meet
ing
The Democrats tonight sprung a sen
sation on the Populist conference which
is being held here and will force them
to go on record for the liquor question
a thing which they a Populists have
never yet done
The Democratic leaders have offered
to forego representation on the state
ticket in the next campaign if the Pop
ulists will insert a resubmission plank
in their platform

night to make any statement regarding
the proposal of the Democrats and will
decide the matter tomorrow

WHAT MEANS I
Senator Chandlers Organ Not I
Harmony With the Senator
Concord N H Jan 5The Monitor
Senator Chandlers paper in an edi
torial tonight says
Recent utterances of Senator Gallin
ger and Representative Sulloway in
which they declare against internation
al bimetallism are unfortunate We
cannot look with approval upon at
tempts to force this issue either by
statesmen in other sections or by those
of New Hampshire We should in this
state firmly adhere to the St Louis
platform and to Mr McKinleys pres
ent attitude and keep the party united
as it was in March 1896 Then Sena
tor Gallinger manfully contends for bi
metallism and secured for it practically
the unanimous approval of the Repub
lican state convention as against the
single gold standard advocated almost
I
alone by Colonel Hollins

last night arrived here today and was I
in the house this afterhoon To all in
quiries as to the sensational contest
he expressed the opinion that Senator
Hanna would be reelecteJ
I Hanna should be defeated said
General Grosvenor it would be by the
combination of Democrats and bolting
Republicans which will give the Demo
crats the senator for the long and short
term They will not furnish the votes
without getting part of the spoils But
I still maintain that Hanna will be reelected

CEDED TO ewn
KaioChau Bay Formally Trans

IT JS CALLED A LEASE

TEBMINATION
The Arrangement Does Not Please
England 1 1 Implications That
She Will 1c a Voice I Future
Events Port Arthur Negotiations
With Bussia Situation Easing
Berlin Jan 5The Reichsanzeiger
I
this evening announces that according
I to a telegram from Pekin an under
standing has been reached between
Germany and China regarding the ces
sion of KiaoChau bay to the former
The arrangement it is added is sub
stantially as follows It is intended by
the cession to render i possible for
Germany in the fulfillment of her just
wish for the possession in the same
way as other powers of a base of trade
and navigation in Chinese waters
The cession of KiaoChau bay to Ger
many takes the form of a lease for an
indefinite time Germany is at liberty
to erect on the ceded territory all the
necessary buildings and establishments
and to take the measures required for
their protection
CEDED TERRITORY
Continuing the Reichsanzeiger says
The ceded territory comprises the
whole of the inner basin of KiaoChau
of
bay as far as the high water line the
larger headlands situated south and
north of the entrance of the bay to the
point where they are naturally bounded
by mountain ranges and also the is
lands situated within and in front of
the bay No obstacles are to be raised
by China to any measures Germany
deems necessary for the regulation O
the water courses China has trans
ferred to Germany for a period not
stated in the telegram a lease of sov
ereign rights over the ceded territory
I for any cause KiaoChau bay
should prove unsuitable for the objects
Germany has in view China after ar
riving at an understanding with Ger
many will cede another piece of ter
ritory on the coast which Germany may
regard a more suitable for her pur
pose
GERMANY GETS ALL
London Jan 6A dispatch to the
Times from Pekin dated yesterday
Wednesday says that Germany has
taken a lease of KiaoChau for 50 years
I also says that reports are current
there that a French occupation of Hal
Nan Island is imminent
Commenting on this the morning pa
per editorials generally point out that
the contract is one in which Germany
apparently gets everything and China
nothing while the question of the safe
ty of the missionaries is entirely
dropped Nothing however is said
about railways or mines
ASCENDENCY OF MONEY
There is a general feeling in England
and i is reflected on the stock ex
change that the situation in the far
east is improving I is believed the
proposed Chinese loan of 16000000
will be guaranteed by the British gov
ernment
The Pall Mall Gazette this afternoon I
refers to the ascendency of money over
the mailed fist and says
Great Britains vessels are anchored
off Chemulpo and at Port Arthur This
is quietly implying that Great Britain
will have a voice in future arrange
ments Further the latest telegrams
clearly indicate that she has plenty of
friends I
BROWN IS A STAYER
Special dispatches from Shanghai to
day say that J McLeavy Brown the
British Corean customs agent at Seoul
maintains a firm hold on his post and
that H Alexieff the Russian agent
who has been endeavoring to supplant
him has been unable to obtain control
lof the finances owing to the fact that all
the funds are vested in Mr Browns
name in the Hong Kong bank at Shang
hai which institution honors Mr
Browns signature only

fection and confidence for each other

In the United States one of the greatest
sorrows that could come to a general
of God has come to me One of my

proud I can assure you the president
fully realizes the effective relief work

FRENCH IMPUTATIONS
Germany Denies Any Connection
With Dreyfus Affair
Berlin Jan 5The Cologne Gazette
reiterates most emphatically that the
Dreyfus affair has absolutely no con
nection with Germany or the Germans
in any way whatever This statement
gives great satisfaction here I is sup
posed to be a final challenge to the
French government to repudiate the
insinuations against Germany
The Vossiche Zeitung says Count von
Munster German ambassador to
France volunteered to make a similar
statement at the trial of Dreyfus but
the French authorities declined his of J

Equally Vigorous Denial That the

St Louis Mo Jan 50n the au
thority of a prominent sporting man of
this city who is closely connected with
those interested in the deal it is stated
today that a syndicate of business men
of St Louis made all arrangements for
buying the St Louis Browns They
were to pay 90000 for the National
League franchise grounds etc
Whether or not the St Louis baseball
club has changed hands is still an un
certainty but i is pretty generally
thought that the deal has been consum
mated This however is vigorously
denied by President Von der Ahe who
at 4 oclock tihs afternoon met S F
Myerson and stated positively to him
that the Browns had not yet been sold
to anybody Mr Myerson openly ac
cused Mr Von der Ahe of using him
as a tool to force Mr Brush to come to
terms Von der Ade disclaimed having
any such intention and furthermore
said lie would meet Myerson at 1
oclock and further consider Myersons
offer to purchase the Browns Mr Von
der Ahe still asserts this evening that
he has not seen Mr Brush Von der
Ahtj saAs he has placed the matter
wholly in the hands of his attorney
John M Glover
I is a significant fact that Mr Muck
enfuss Mr Brush and Attorney Glover
were closeted together for the greater
part of the afternoon and upon that
meeting the results of which are
guarded with great secrecy is based
the general impression that Mr Brush
has consummated the purchase

SMITH SATISFIED
George A Smith wore a pleased ex
pression when he learned of his ap
pointment as receiver George did not
manifest any considerable degree of
surprise at getting an unsought job
I did have an intimation that it
might come that way he said yester
day Something to that effect came
to me about ten days ago and as I
would really prefer the receivership to
the postmastership I had no feeling
save one of satisfaction
Mr Smith is a young man who has
been in the employ of Z C 1 L for
some time a traveling representative
He i a son of Apostle John Henry
Smith who worked zealously for his
sons appointment a postmaster
GREENEWALD SURPRISED
Jake Greenewald was confined to his
home yesterday by illness The ap
pointment of Thomas came as a com
plete surprise to hini because he had
within the past few days received let
ters from very influential men at Wash
ington indicating that he was sure of
the appointment While well indorsed
locally Jake relied largely upon the
influence of Senators Quay and Pen
rose of Pennsylvania who made a
strong personal effort in his behalf
SO WAS NASH
A H Nash was another surprised
individual Taken all in all he had
the strongest backing of any candidate
for the postmastership and was really
the most prominent applicant in the II I
field I
THE RECEIVERSHIP
Colonel Percy Sowers a personal
friend of McKinley expected the re
ceivership He was silent as a
sphinx over the appointment of Smith
however and if disappointed did not
show it I is said he has assurances
that he is to be taken care of
HOBBS NOT TALKATIVE
F D Hobbs was not in a talking
mood He accepted the defeat cheer
fully to make and had no particular criticism
makeMR BARRATT TALKS
A Herald reporter called on Postmas
ter Barratt yesterday and asked him
What do vou know about the ap
pointment of your successor
To which Mr Barratt replied
Nothing further than this This
afternoon a friend dropped in and said
A L Thomas had been appointed post
master As our English cousins say I
thought he was chaffing me and he
left me under that impression Later
Mr Vigas agent of the Associated
Press called and assured me it was
trueI ca think of no one better quali
fied by natural gifts and experience to
fill the position than the exgovernor
Indeed the difficulty I fancy will be
in toning down abilities schooled in
higher official positions to the daily
drudgery of this Further let me say J
knowing what I do and remembering
the statements volunteered to me here I
I cannot believe Governor Thomas ask
ed for the appointment but I think I
know why i is given Further than
this I have nothing to say at present
Yes I would like to say this in addi
tion Since I have been so cavalierly
treated I congratulate myself that I
have at no time and in no way though
urged to do otherwise sacrificed my I
selfrespect by soliciting consideration
I have been seeking the governors
address that I might wire my congrat
ulations As yet I have been unable to
reach him

Havana via Key West Jan 5Senor
Canalejas was coldly received at Santiago
tiago de Cuba The Spanish casino re
fused to tender him a banquet and
he was hissed on the street I is un
derstood that the position is due to the I
fact that he is the editor of El Heraldo
de Madrid which has violently attack I
ed General Weyler I is reported that
his impressions regarding Cuba are pes
simistic and that he will advise the
Spanish government to abandon the
land
Today General Blanco General Par
rado and General Pando called upon
General Seguerra at the hotel Florida
to try to induce him to remain on the i
island He refused He does not wish
to be responsible he declares for the I
future development of the disgraceful
Spanish rule in Cuba
HONEST FIGHTER I
General Seguerra is an intelligent
and honest fighter and is wholly dis
gusted with General Pandos method of
campaign He says Pando spends more
gunpowder In greeting autonomy than
in fighting insurgents and adds that I
in his opinion Cuba is lost to Spain un
less the government sends General POI
aveija or returns General Weyler The I
latter he considers out of the question l
because General Weyler was relieved
of his command at the request of I
Washington General Polaveija he
holds in high esteem believing that this
officer could end the war if an extermi I
ofcer
nation policy were adopted He also
believes war inevitable between the I
United States and Spain under the pre
text of the filibustering expeditions
NO GRINDING t
The insurgents are carrying out the I
I orders of General Maximo Gomez hot to
allow grinding and they set fire to the
cane fields wherever possible from one I
i end of the island to the other
General Pando will sail tomorrow I
morning by the steamer Panama going
I eastward The insurgents recently i
made a strong attack upon Nuevitas I
province of Puerto Principe in consid j
I
erable force with loss on both sides I
I is believed that this is the reason why I
Gneral Pando is going there r
The insurgent general Ducassi is in I
I sight of Bahia Honda with 350 men I
j Troops have been sent to meet him i i
Captain Cabalcarri chief of the guerillas I

I Villanueuva left Caimito this prov I

others
Senor Marcos Garcia civil governor
of Santa Clara reports that 80 recon I
centrados died in this city during De
cember last and over 1000 in Novem

number will die during the present
month from lack of food clothing and i

WHAT GOMEZ UTTEBS
Spaniards Will Not Be Persecuted i
Cuba Triumph
New York Jan 6The Herald prints
an interview with Gomez from its cor
respondent
The correspondent found Gomez in
the best of health and spirits and fully
convinced that the long struggle Is
drawing to a close The intrageantes
of Cuba said General Gomez have
been the only ones willing to continue
the struggle because they feared that
Cuban triumph would result in their
prosecution and the confiscation of
their property They are absolutely
mistaken I Maximo Gomez whose
word has never been broken assure
them of absolute protection
I know these people represent the
thrifty business element of the island
and believe they are destined to rank
among the most valued citizens of the
republic The triumph of our cause
will bring to them assurance and ijer
mission to follow their vocations in
peace There will be no persecution
either political or social All we ask
of them is to help us in building up
the fortunes of the island and repair
ing the wastes of war I say the same
thing too to the Spanish officers in
the field They have been fighting us
not because they hate Cuba but be
cause they love Spain They have
proved themselves to be loyal sons of
the motherland and when they have
laid down their arms we will gladly
extend to them the right hand of fel
lowship We will bury the bloody past
and go forward shoulder to shoulder
shoulder
to build up Cubas laboring classes
which have been almost destroyed and
we shall need men to till the soil The
rank and file of the Spanish army will
fill the gap I
Speaking of terms on which Cuba
might win freedom General Gomez re
iterated his statement that Cuba is
still waiting to purchase1 her liberty
It is believed that 250000000 would be
an equitable amount now He said he
had no dpubt that an arrangement
could be made with American capital
ists to form a syndicate collect cus
toms duties and pay Spain in install
ments In this way the general sold
there would be a positive end to the

I war by the establishment of friendly
relations with Spain
When peace is declared he ad
ded we want to reckon Spain among
our friends
Referring to the ability of Cuba to
carry on the war General Gomez said
his forces were ample and declared that
Cuba could continue the fighting even
if the soldiers had to go naked that
the war cost the Cubans nothing
whereas Spains life blood is being rap
idly drained by her enormous expenses
He spoke in terms of affectionate admiration

miration of America describing her as
the light of Cuba and said he would
welcome intervention as affording a
instantaneous solution of the problem
but deprecated annexation although
willing to accept a protectorate
DRIFT OF POPULATION
Young Men Are Leaving the Farm
and Crowding the Cities
Indianapolis Ind Jan 5The state
board of agriculture which is holding
its annual session in this city has be
fore ia proposition that the proparty
i owns be turned over to the state
and it become a state organization
Several years ago the supreme court
held that the body was a private cor
poration Governor Mount delivered an
address before the board He said
A few evenings ago I heard a dis
cussion among distinguished gentlemen
of this city in which it was the con
sensus of opinion that the most dis
couraging outlook for agriculture was
found in the fact that too many young
men were leaving the farm Statistics
and observation strongly tend to show
that the urban population is rapidly
increasing while that of the rural dis
tricts is increasing at a far less rate
The casual observer might conclude
that this is to the advantage of the
farmer as the tendency is to the de
creasing of producers and the increas
ing of consumers The careful student
of economics however wants to un
derstand the reason why there seems
to be so little attraction in country life
Farmers as a rule are inclined to talk
farming down instead of exalting its
possibilities One of the gentlemen
above referred to said that some ag
gressive efforts are needed to attract
attention and add interest to farm life
The superintendent of public Instruc
tion informs me that the total amount
annually expended in the cause of ed
ucation in Indiana would not fall short
of 10000000 I am in favor of the
broadest kind of education but I want
farmers educated in the science of ag
riculture as well There is practically
no instruction as to how crops grow
the elements of plant food they require
how to conserve and how restore those
elements to the soil There is little or
nothing in the text books of our schools
to interest children in nature study
CLIPPERTON ISLAND
Straight Facts Believe the Mexicans
of All Blame
Mexico City Jan 5A high official
of the department of foreign relations
said today regarding the Clipperton
island incident
The sending of the gunboat Demo t
crata on a visit of inspection to por
tions of the Mexicans territory was
de facto attended with no conflict or
difficulty with the individual Ameri
cans found there and in no event could
that visit have given rise to interna
tional questions inasmuch as the oc
cupation of the island if occupation it
can be called was the act of private
persons having no official character
The American flag was found flying
there but the Americans themselves
on hearing from the lips of Mexican
officers that the island was Mexican
territory hauled it down and allowed
the party of Mexicans to run up the
flag of this country without the
slightest opposition either in act or
wordThere
There was no illfeeling or bitter
ness between Americans found on the
island and the expeditionary party On
the contrary nothing but good will and
friendly disposition was displayed on
both sides The claim made in bthalf
of France by La Liberte of Paris is
regarded as a canard France never
held the island
