Chicago Traders Indulge I" Their Animal
Piiivuuw and (.host Oaurc
Chicago, Dec. 31. The annual New Year's
revel on tho board ot trade was observed
to-day with unusual enthusiasm. Tho
market was neglected during tho last
hour, anil at the tap of thu bell at noon
every trader on the door was Ions on
sacks of Hour and short on dignity. The
naileries were crowded with people who
had como to see the fun and the perform
ance van fully up to tho expectations.
When tho maiket closed tho ball opened.
The festivities begun with a series of
blood-curdling yells and u vivid Imitation
of tho ghost dance. A short fat trader
with a nihil silk hat, who was leading th'i
vocal exercises, was suddenly cut slioit
In his musical lllght by the swift descent
of a bursting sack of Hour. With the slg
pal every man on the Hour entered ener
Ketlqally Into tho attempt to pound every
ntlnr man with a Hour sack. Hats were
battered and hurled toward the celling;
coats were torn; mn wero upset and fur
half an hour a merry war was waged In
a mist of Hying Hour. When tho stock of
Hour was exhausted the samplu tables
were robbed of barley, oats and corn, and
tho air was full of Hying missiles until
exhaustion ended tho fun. When It win
over the pit looked as though It had been
struck by a blizzard and the traders jt

minister, to Deputy SlieilfC W. W. I'erln,
of Lebanon, Ky., until ho had assurance
of Governor Ilrown and of the sheriff ot
Green comity, Ky., th.1t the man would
ho protected from any mob. Rev. Hamp
ton was formerly a teacher at Whltewood,
Ky., and had some words with J. C. Dur
ham, a farmer, In June, WH. because the
pupils were stealing the hitter's fruit.
Rev. Hampton shot .Durham, hut not fa
tally, and lied. Deputy Sheriff I'erln, a
relative of Durham, last night arrested
Hampton while preaching at Avondale.
After an exciting time he was to-day
brought before Judge Duchwalter on ex
tradition papers. Hampton said ho was
Indicted, and Durham had recovered. He
had been willing to go back If assured a
fair trial. He had received letters from
prominent people there warning him Jvls
llfo was not safe.
A colored man and a colored boy had
been lynched there, one for murder and
the other for assault, and he would be
strung up If taken back by Deputy Sheriff
"I have sent two colored men back
lately," said Judge Hur-hwnlter. "One to
Georgia and one to Kentucky. Although
the otfense ot the latter, who was an Itin
erant peddler, was only shooting at some
body, he was taken by a mob out of llur
llngtnn jail and hunt; to a tree. 1 deter
mined then I would never send another
prisoner South unless 1 had assurance he
would he protected from a mob and given
a fair trial. I must have a letter from
Governor Ilrown and the sheriff of your
county to that effect."
Itev. Hampton, or Jackson, was taken
back to ,1all until further order of court.
Deputy Sheriff I'erln returned, and said
he expected to be lviek with the letters

statement that tho decreo concerning se

jnltted to bishops In order lo secure from
them their opinion thereon, Monslgnor
S.uolll authorizes the Associated l'ress to
make the following brief statement ot the

possible mint presentations:
The archibshops ot the T'nlted States
hae taken counsel with respect to three
societies, namely: Tho Odd fellows, tho
Sons of Temperance and the Knights ot
l'ythlas. The archbishops decided that the
whole iiuestiun should bo submitted to the
apostolic see. In a communication from
his eminence, Cardinal .Monaco, to Mon
slgnor Satolll, the action of the general
congregation of cardinals, to whom his
holiness committed the question, Is made
known. The congregation, after consider
ing carefully the matter, made a decree.
This decreo his holiness fullv conllrmed.
and gave It complete effect. Tho decree is,
therefore, transmitted to all archblHhnps.

In a quarter ot n century tho Madison hotel
b not 'headquarters. Tho Monroe house
has that honor now. Tho more spacious
lobby ot tho Madison Is not ono-thlrd tilled.
This fact Is u revelation to those who for
years have attended at tho opening of tho
general assembly, livery candidate for the
speakership has arrived. Major Hlttlngcr
ami B. Hlgbeo, ot Schuyler, were the last
to get In. and havo established themselves.
Major Hlttlngcr, as was his habit in tho
years past, is at the MeCirty house. Illg
beo Is at tho City hotel. Tho arrival of
lllttltiger excited tho gossips to tho tip
top of expectancy. At once the local De
mocracy started a rumor that llussel was
losing his lead and that his following was
scattering to the winds. Coupled with
these rumors others stated that Fllley
would ha up on tho night train, hut this
was denied a little later. Somo who stand
closo to "tie old man" said ho wotlld not
airlvo until to-mottow night. This much
appears evident that the Kllley and antl
1'illey light exists principally In the minds
of Democratic coriespoiulcnts. Among Re
publicans the agreement Is general that ac
tional lights must not bu permitted this
year. Tho stake Is too great. And It Is
equally evident that If a factional tight is
ptecfpltated, the Republican party In tho
state will suiter. Under such circum
stances tho party, at the hands of Repub
lican representatives-elect, will sit down
hard on tho man or men precipitating tho
light. It Is not written that any one par
ticular man is to be speaker. Whoever Is
elected must stand aloof from all tactions,
and make his race as a man and u He
publlcan. Such Is the declared demand of
practically all. Appearances this evening
aro that Hussell leads the Held for the
speakership, with Dlttlnger a close sec
ond. Thu Held niralnst Itussell would de
feat him easily. Ilothwell will have a
good following. Hlgbue's strength, as yet,
H an unknown quantity.
In conversation this afternoon Dr. Pcttl
jolin said: "I am neither for Fllley, nor
against him: 1 am a Republican." His
sentiments aro thoso of tho majority. Ma
jor Dlttlnger expressed himself very freely
and forcibly along tho same lines, and said
It appeared to him that Democrats wero
hack of much of tho talk concerning party
dissensions. i'ho popular demand that fac
tions lie quashed will result In harmony.
Forewarned Is foreaimed. The consensus
of opinion among Republican members Is
that no radical temperance measure can
bo passed at tills session. They are well
satisfied with tho law as it is In this state,
at least, they would not favor tampering
with It, la view ot thu Imperative neces
sity of remedial legislation as to election
laws, criminal procedure, etc. Nor are tho
members In any humor to, extend privileges
and Immunities to tliodiig corporations. It
is mole than probable that the schemo to
consolidate thu various street car lines In
St. Louts will meet bitter opposition in
tlio house. Present appearances aro that

Topeka, Kas., Dec. 31. (Special.) For
the Hrst time since the senatorial cam
paign opened one ot the talent has made
public his figures, und at the best they fur
nish but little Information for the people
who aro on the qui vivo to know how the
senatorial cat is going to Jump. The gen
tlemen reforrod to Is close enough to the
politicians and has had experience enough
in former senatorial contests to make his
conclusions valuable und therefore Inter
esting. He claims to havo carefully canvnssea
the lOt! Republicans who will have a vote
for United States senator on Joint ballot
Ot these llfty-tlve expressed a preference
anil fifty-one declined to express any
choice. The fifty-live gentlemen who are
willing to stnte that they had selected
their standard bearer were divided ns fol
lows: Fur Hood, 9; for Ally, 11; for Car
ton, 13; for ..eland, II; for Thnchcr, C: for
Smith, 3. In all human probability a
large per cent of the Ilfty-one members
Who declined to make their choice known
have a leaning toward some one ot the
.,.,. in. ,t ,m m, .,1 lint thu fact that they
are not willing t name their choice will
give the outsider a fair Insight Into tho
unsettled condition ot ino coiucsi ut mm
time. It is any man's game to-day and
i ohrowilest nolltlclans at the capital do
not protend to have any Idea who will be
the lucky mnn.
The gentleman quoted above supplements
his figure!) with the further statement
that the candidates themselves, do not
know their own strength. It there has
not been a preconcerted movement to
abstain from pledges both on senator and
statu printer, It certainly looks like it.
New systems aro entering Into Kansas
politics. Tho now blood In the legislature
makes no eoueealment of the fact that
there will be tight from the drop of the
hat against the old machine methods. I he
old set of politicians are alieady begin
ning to feel It. They can no lunger put
their wise old heads together in the lobby
and "Hx" up. a legislative programme, 'lo
their astonishment and consequent un
easiness they can not even tell here only
a week beiore tho convening of tho legis
lature, what the attitude of any consid
erable number of members will lie on nny
prominent question.
Tho fact that Governor-elect Morrill Is
preserving a dignllled reticence mi tho
question of appointments seems to have,
encouraged the members to a. llku hide
pendenee. It Is doubtful If anyonu has
anything like an Inkling as to Mho Gov
ernor Morrill Intends to select as his lie -tenants.
Hu keeps Ills own councils with
a matter-of-coursn air which does not of
fend the place hunters, but which un
doubtedly puzzles und surprises them. In
fact. It Is beginning to dawn over the pol
iticians that Governor Morrill meant
something when ho pledged I he peoplu
rrom thu rostrum that hu would cotisii t
only the beat Interests ot tho statu 111 nil
ministering tho olllce of governor. Ho
" frank open and approachable to every
caller, hilt his stream of visitors eiimu and
go without llnillng out ans thing tangible.
It Is almost laughable in observe tho be.
wlldernient of somo of tint old-timers who
havo hetetiiforo enjoyed thu distinction of
carrying mound a list of the uppo Int.
moms In their pocketH weeks before they
wc ro Hindu. It looks now ftoni an outside
standpoint as though Kimsaa was going
to have a new deal all around.
Tho political headquarters aro vlrttinll
debet ted to-day and will remain ro until
Wednesday. ..very Bcnatoiial and, Indeed,
every other candidate, will have his head
quartern Hi active operation by Wednesday
night and somo tangible shape may lorm
to the lines, It Is tho present programme
to havo the speakorbltlp caucim nn next
Monday night, when it :i likely the chief
clerk, sergeniit-nt-urms, and posulbly oth
er house olllceis. will bo agreetl upon, 'iho
llrst light on hand will bu over thu method
of voting Hi caucus, There Is a growing
element who will demand a secret ballot
and they maintain, Ihelr position by say
ing that tt is right In lino with the Austra
lian ballot system, while, the other hide
claim that a secret ballot Is a subler
fuge for members who do not wunr to
make u record, Within the past, fow days
It has been n evidence that Mr, I.nlidell
did not muku his outsldo cuuvans foruoth
leg, Hu has more avowed supporters than
any other candidate, and It Is certain tltat
ho will bo one or the, two men, balloted
for when thu limit choice Is made. Next
to Mr. Lohdcll comes .Mr. llcncdlc't. am
It looks now as though tho choice would
fall between them. Mr. Cubblsoii Is third
In the race as Indications go, while Colonel
Wurner and Judge Sutton will have a re
spectable following. On the supposition
that thu showdown will be between Lob.
dell and Item-diet, the course of Mr. Cub
blbon la being watched with Interest. If
ho goes to either It Is assumed lo Insura
election. An effort Is ulso being made by
tho I.obdell forces to get Judgo Sutton off
the track as he Is the only rival on I.ob
dell's Western Kansas territory. Tho
Judge, however, is bald to bu favorable to
Henedlct, and his votes may fall there.
Members who havo talked at all scout
the Idea of a senatorial dark horse. If
there Is u movement toward Ingalls or any
one elso It has kent Its presence most en
tirely concealed. Thoso who talk say thero
Is abundant timber In night und thero Is
very little likelihood ot uny bitter
ness being engendered which will
demand an entire dealing ot the
boards. One member from Western Kan
sas when approached to-day rcmntked
that If the light was between Ingalls and
any one other of thu candidates named
Ingalls would not pluck the plum. In
galls had made Ids umiwiiI that ho was
not a candidate at tills time; the people
had taken him at his word; ho was nnt
under consideration, and talk of taking him
up at tills time was tin- wot It of rank out
siders. Two years hence theie will be no
question ot the ox-senator being In tho
race, but now tho Issues have been made
between certain candidates who will not
bo called upon to contest with a man who
says his destiny lies along other lines.

ficials of the leading roads ot Georgia,
asking them to enter the good work by
granting free transput tntlon lo such corn
as Is shipped over their roads for the
Ill response to these requests ho has re
ceived assurances from Pri-sldcnt Holfmnn,
ot the Seaboard Air line; from the Atlanta
& West Point railroad, and from the West

cilities free and such other assistance as
mav be la their power.
Mayor Ilrown, of Carrolllon, answers the
appeal as follows:
"Your telegram tecelved this morning and
the appeal went straight to my heart.
While money is searee, what you ask for
God lias bountifully lilessid our country
