Ni.w Yona, January ‘-M.—A Washing ton special says: Last week Senator Voorhees introduced u bill to admit Washington i'erritory as a state, and yesterday lie introduced a bill to admit Montana. Ihe Senator was asked if he intended to make the admission of Da kota conditional on the admission of Montana, ns it lias been reported the Democrats were disposed to do. He re plied; "lean speak only for miself. I think the best arrangement we can make is to admit Dakota. Montana and Wash ington together. They must all come in soon, anti they might as well come now. I can't see how we can prevent Dakota coming in. She has a voting population of Sil,ooo, and is certainly entitled to ad mittance. 1 thought at tint Hint 1 should oppose the division of Dakota, but 1 do not see how I can. The 'I ern tory has an area of five times my own state, anti South Dakota Will be about as large as Ohio and Indiana. Montana lias a voting population of 260,1X10 ami W asbington a voting population of 40,- 1100. There are not 15 congressional dis tricts in tlie country with the population of Washington, and not a hundred witli t hat of Montana. Dakota is Bepubiican, Montana is Democratic, and I am confi dent will remain so. Washington is close, and may be won by either party. If she comes into the Union by Demo cratic votes, under a Democratic admin istration, our chances in the new Slate will be all the better. It seems to me mileh the best plan to take in these three territories at once. They are entitled to it, and. politically, it will be as fair and practicable an arrangement as can be made.” Several prominent Democrats are re ported as agreeing with Mr.Voorhees. Mr. Springer expresses the opinion Hint the House Committee on Territories will report favorably on the division and admission of Dakota, unless the party shall hold a caucus upon the subject. In that event, it Is his opinion that the decision would be adverse. In the Coke Regions. STOXKMLI.E, l’a., January 20.—The situation has assumed an alarming phase in tlie coke regions. I'his morning 300 strikers, armed witli bars, eoke forksand revolvers, started on the march. They drove the men from work at tlie "Alice'' and charged Warden's coke yard at this place. Then the Mayfield mid Donnelly mines a mile west of here was visited. A boy, named Metzer. was terribly beaten, and three yard bosses al Mu < aba's were chased and hammered. Every oven was crushed in. The rioters have gone across the country towards tlie Rising Sun Works. The greatest trouble is yet to come. Saturday will be pay day. and on Monday the ten days will have expired since notice to quit was given to strikers in company houses, 'there will likely be serious trouble when ejectment is attempted. Tlie re port that the Governor lias been called upou for aid is untrue. Sheriff Stewart says he will not send until he finds him self unable to cope with the disturbing elements. Two Men and One Woman. I.AWKKNt kmm.e, Ga.. January 20.— Yesterday, Dr. A. 8. Reviere. a well known physician of this place, secured from the ordinary of Logansville. a li cense to marry Miss Octavia Nash, of that place. As he was passing out of the ordinary's office he was passed by by Mr. John Jackson, who had secured a license to marry the same lady. Dr. Reviere mounted his horse and giving it the spurs, started out at full gallop for the lady’s home. Five minutes later Jackson was mounted and in full pur suit of the doctor. The men rode furi ously, but the Doctor having five min utes the start, was married to the girl by the time his rival reached the scene. It seems that she was engaged to both, and had named the day and hour for each to appear as her groom. Not until the licenses were issued had the two men found out the true state of affairs. Striking Cigarmakers. New York, January 20.—Nine thous and cigarmakers and other employ ees of tlie league employed by the < igar Man ufacturers' Association are idle to day. The direct cause of the trouble is the re fusal of the employees of Levy Brothers to declare their strike ngainst the new uniform price list ofi'and return to work. The employees banded together to resist this demand. By to-morrow packers in all the shops will have joined the strikers. The strike extends to the cigarbox-mak ing trade. When the packers quit work the number on the strike will have been swelled to over 10.000. The strikers say they have enough money to hold out for six months. She Knew Her Papa. A little girl, aged nine, callsd her fa ther to her bedside the other evening.

A meeting look place yesterday, which resulted in the organization of tlie San Antonio Club and Opera House Company. Judge T. J. Devine was elected President, W. H. Maverick, treasurer, and L. S. Berry, secretary. The next meeting of thia company will be held on the first Tuesday in Febru ary, when a site for tlie new Club and Opera House will be definitely decided on. The choice has resolved itself into two pieces of property, both of which cost $22,(100 to secure. The first, ami possibly the most favorable location is that site controlled by Mr. A. Maverick, at the corner of East Houston and Na varro street. This site would allow a spacious and commodious building to be erected and is desirably situated, from tlie fact that it is in a central portion of the city, and has easy access either from College. Navarro or Houston streets, and commands the whole of the stieet car system. In the event of this site being selected, it is proposed to build two stores facing Houston street and also an arcade leadisg to an entrance of the theafe, the main approach to w hich would be on Navarro street The second and third doors would be occu pied permanently by the San Antonio Club, and about 20 dormitories would lie added for the accommodation of club members, 10 on each side of the arcade, and over it. On tlie purchase of this site. Mrs. Vance has agreed to donate $lOOO and to take $6OOO in shares. 't he other location is situated on Alamo Plaza, on the west side, at the corner of the Crockett street continuation. The greater portion of thia lot is the proper ty of Messrs. Adams & Wickes, who will sell their interest for $12,000. Tlie cor ner portion of the lot (formerly Morris' saloon) Is owned by a Mexican family, who will release their title to It for $lO,OOO. Messrs. Adams A Wickes have consented to take $7500 in shares if the company completes negotiations with them. Both these sites are good ones, but Hie Maverick property is undoubtedly the more favorable of the two. There is no institution the city more needs than an opera bouse, and the enterprise of the newly organized company is lo lie com mended anil fostered. THE MARKETS.
