Savannah. Ga., January 13. When

that the Georgia scalp lock, showing
that the trophy had been won by

THE SITUATION SERIOUS
BOTH SIDES TO KENTUCKY POLITICAL
THE DECISION TO BE RESISTED
By That Party Against Whom It Is
Made Republicans Charged With
t Importing Soldiers In Citizens'
Clothes to the Capital Consequences
of Taylor's Refusal to Submit to the
Finding of tlu Legislature -"Honest
Democrats" Appeal to the People.
Frankfort, Ky., January 13. The sit
uation in the contests for governor
and the starte offices and the question
of what is going to happen when the
final result is declared, are tonight
fruitful of the most extravagant spec
ulation. If the adherents of . the con
testees, the republican incumbents of
the state offices, carry out the line of
procedure they now threaten by re
fusing to vacate even in. case the legis
lature decides in favor of the demo
cratic contestants, the situation will
be serious, and if the statements of
some of the men high in councils of the
state are to be credited, thie is what
they propose to do.
K. J. Hampton, secretary of the re
publican state central committee, said
today that the talk of holding an ana
Goebei state convention here next week
was purely an invention, but he pre
dicted that several thousand anti
Goebel men from all parts of the state
would be here to protest, by their pres..
ence, against unseating of Taylor and
Marshall and to sustain them if the
legislature votes to turn them out. He
denied that any of those now here ar
soldiers in citizens cloUhee as charged
by the Goebel democrats.
James Andrew Scott, one of the at
torneys for the contestants in minor
state contests said tonight:
Th!e importation of soldiers and
thugs here for the purpose of intimi
dating the legislature will not work.
They are bluffing and no trouble will
occur. As for' Oheir threats that they
will hold on in spite of ' the decision by
the legislature, they may do this for a
few days, but 'the courts would recog
nize the regular state government, and
if Mr. Taylor does not then give in, he
will subject himself to prosecution and
all the penalties against usurpation
wihich I have no idea he will want to
Most of the democratic leaders coin
cide with Scott. Ex-Governor Bradley
and all of the republican leaders held
that the contest proceedings are being
conducted in am arbitrary manner
without regard to the law and that for
these reasons the decision, If adverse
to Taylor, slhould not be. binding on
him. They file a bill of specifications
as to their objections to the trial of
contests and the reasons why the pro
ceedings are all illegal. The sum total
of these, according to Governor Taylor's
attorenys brings the case within some
of t"ne inhibitions of the fourteenth
amendment to the federal constitution.
The republican state committee,
through its officers and the organiza
tion formed by disaffected democrats
during the recent campaign, has issued
statements reviewing the political cam
paign and calling upon its constituents

CUBAN JUDICIAL SYSTEM
To be Snbjected to Sweeping Reforms
by Secretary Root.
Washington, January 13. Secretary
Root has taken steps to institute at
once sweeping reforms in the judicial
system in Cuba, the animating purpose
being to correct as soon as possible the
Cuban prison abuses which have al
ready been the subject of representa
tions to the war department. To ac
complish this purpose, the secretary
-has decided to appoint a commission,
composed of three Americans and an
equal number of Cubans. This com
mission will probably consist of Ho
ratio Rubens, E. L. Conant and Mr.
Runcie for the American side. They
are all lawyers, well versed in the
Spanish code, as well as thoroughly
acquainted with American practice.
The Cuban contingent will probably
be selected by Governor Wood from
among the members of the Havana
bar. The commission will meet at the
earliest possible moment In Havana
and begin at once with a revision o(
the criminal methods, follow jag this
up later on with amendments of the
civil code, where necessary. Mr. Ru
bens had consultation with Secretary
Root today and left Washington for
New York. He expects to proceed to
Havana via Miami next Wednesday.

BUYING A SEAT IN THE SENATE
Evidence Before the Senate Committee
Against Senator Clark.
Washington, January 13. The senate
committee on privileges and elections
today continued the investigation of
charges against Senator Clark, of
M L. Hewett, a miner, who was in
Helena during the session of the leg
islature in 1899, said that Charley Clark
had asked him to see Senator Myers
and offer him $10,000 for his vote for
Mr. Clark for senator. He had accord
ingly talked with Mr. Myers and tes
tified that that gentleman had told
him, after firsii d eel i King the proposi
tion, to say to Clark that if he was
disposed to do so he could put $10,000
in the hands of Mr. Whiteside to be
paid to him (Myers) in case he should
vote for Mr. Clark. Hewett said that
the senator's son tiiattd that this ar
rangement was s:".i factory and had
afterward told 'hii.i that the money
for Myers had been given to White
sides and that his vote was assured.
The witness said he had seen the sen
ator at his rooms at the Helena hotel a
short time after the Whiteside expo
sure and had asked him what he pro
posed to do, when the senator had re
plied: "There is only one thing to do,
and thait is to make tthe people believe
that the Daly gang nave furnished the
money and have put up a conspiracy
Concluding his testimony, Mr. Hew
ett said he had received no pay for his
services from Mr. Clark and no promise
of any. He had been interested with
the senator in a mining company and
preferred him to his opponents.
Charles W. Jackson, of Salt Lake,
Utah, a member of the legislature of
that state, testified that he had met
Clark in Salt Lake City during the sen
atorial deadlock in thait state, last
February, and thait Clark had tried to
influence him to vote for McCune for
United States senator from Utah, in
timating to him that in case he should
do so he would be paid foT the act. Mr.
Jackson said he had declined and that
Clark had then proceeded to argue the
point, saying that all scandals of that
character soon died out, that it was
the custom of men of wealth to spend
money to secure election to the senate.
Jackson said Mr. Clark cited the case
of Senator Hanna, of Ohio, as in point.
Continuing, he said that Mr. Clark
stated that in his own . case he had
used money ito secure his own election,
Which had then but recently occurred.
His election had caused some talk and
one of the members had foolishly ex
hibited some bills in a careless way,
but he had no doubt that the talk
would soon die out and thait he would
hear little more of it. The witness said
that Mr. Clark had asked him to re
gard the conversation as confidential.
When Mr. Jackson concluded his tes
timony it was announced that no
more witnesses would be examined be

ecutive session, ' the committee ad

She Urtrea the Punishment of Lynchers
of Italians in This Country.
Washington, January 13. The Italian
government has signified to the govern
ment of the United States, in' the polite
and courteous method known to dip
lomacy, a wish that the persons guilty
of lynching the five Italians at Talulah,
La., last spring should be punished.
Heretofore in cases of the lynching of
Itaians, the matter has been compro
mised by the payment of an Indemnity,
but this does not meet the present de
mand of the Italian government.
Washington January 13. As under
the existing law the trial and prosecu
tion of such cases as this is left entire
ly to the state authorities, the national
government is well nigh helpless to
meet the request of the Italian govern
ment. As an outcome of uhia embarrassing
position, the president will probably
make fresh representations to congress
urging the speedy passage of the pend
ing bills intended to remove from state
courts jurisdiction in cases where per
sons claiming treaty protection are the
victims, and transferring jurisdiction
over them to the federal courts.

British government had released the
American goods on the Dutch vessel

the Boers Back Toward Colesberg.
London, January 14. 1 a. m. The
veil concealing the (theatre of war
from the eyes of Great Britain and the
rest of the world Is still unlifted. It is
impossible to doubt ithat this absolute
closing of all the channels of infor
mation is due to the censorship, the
strictness of which has been redoubled
since the landing of Lord Roberts and
Lord Kitchener, concerning whom
nothing has transpired since the an
nouncement of their arrival at Cape
Town four days ago.
The war office stated at midnight
thait no further news from the front
had been received and none from any
other source has come to hand during
the night. As usual, when news is
scarce, the rumor mongers have been
busy. The latesjt story floated was
that intelligence had reached head
quarters of the Scots Guards that
General Buller had again sustained a
serious , defeat. Inquiry at Wellington
barracks showed that while such a
rumor had reached there, it was neith

Renesburg, Cape Colony, January 9.
A strong force of British troops ad
vanced this morning under cover of a
brisk artillery fire and encamped at
Slingersfontein on the Boers eastern
flank. The Boer patrols retired, but
subsequently a body of Boers attempt
ed to seize Ithe position, threatening
communication between the British
encampment and Renesburg. The New
Zealanders with a brilliant dash, frus
trated the atftempt. They raced and
seized the position first and fired vol
leys at the enemy, who retired in the
direction of Colesburg.
London, January 13. The movement
of General French's troops in the
vicinity of Colesburg is taken to indi
cate that Lord General Roberts has
recognized the importance of General
French's objective, namely, to obtain
command of both bridges across the
Orange river and has "hastened to send
him reinforcements. It is also thought
to partially confirm the suggestion that
General Buller's plans include syn
chronous movements in all the spheres
of operation. About four thousand
troops sailed for Souith Africa this af
ternoon. RUMORED ASSAULT ON LADY

It is possible that the news received
in Vienna by way of Brussels from

fact that the Boers occupied one

HANNA WANTS MONEY
To Meet Democratic Political Agita
tion Among the Laboring Class of
Philadelphia, January 13. The sub
committee of the republican national
campaign committee began today the
work of laying plans for the presiden
tial campaign, which can now be said
to be fairly well under way. Shortly
after 9 o'clock the committeemen vis
ited Mayor Ashbridge.
In tthe party were Senator Hanna,
chairman, "Joe" Manley, H. C. Paine,
of Wisconsin; United States Senator
N. B. Scott, of West Virginia; Rich
ard Kerens, of Missouri; and Charles
Dick, of Ohio, the secretary of the na
From the mayor's office the commit
tee went to the exposition buildings to
inspect the auditorium in which the
national convention is to be held. All
the visitors expressed their satisfac
tion at the selection of the hall.
Senator Hanna particularly was
much interested in all the arrange
ments conducted so far by the local
committees, and regarding the conven
tion, said ithat those who imagine it
will be a cut and drived affair will be
badly fooled. He said:
"Of course President 'McKinley will
be renominated and without doubt he
will receive every vote in the conven
tion; but when it comes to choosing
his running mate and deciding on the
platform there is likely to be an abun
dance of excitement."
During the conference with Mayor
Ashbridge, Senator Hanna made the
firft statement which he has uttered In
his capacity as republican national
chairman on the Issues and plans of
the coming campaign. He said: "First,
the. national issues will be the prosper
ity of the working people of the coun
try; second, the retention of the Phil
ippines. The republican party is in
pressing and immediate need of funds
to carry on the work of pie campaign
and it must be begun without a
moment's delay. The democratic par
ty haj labor agitators at work through

paign committee finds It necessary to

The Name of the Wrecked Steamer In
St. Mary's Bay Yet Unknown.
St. Johns, N. F., January 13. The
name of the vessel wrecked and on fire
on a reef in St. Mary's hay, is still un
known. The weather continued rough
today and the fisher folk were unable
to board her. She is wholly submerged
and her hull is badly battered. There

weather tonight, however, and it Is be
lieved that it will be possible to "Tret
full news tomorrow. At present the
seas are breaking over the ship and
running mountain high against the
rocks. Much wreckage is strewn along
the strand, and many bodies, some of
them dismembered, are visible. Por
tions of the boats remain hooked to the
blocks and this is taken to indicate
that the boats were swamped in lower-
ng and that their crews perished. Most
of the bodies are only half clothed.
The wind iswiow off the land, and the
wreckage Is not coming ashore. There

and fires are kept burning at night and

boats crew which may have escaped.
It is not considered likely, however.
that any succeeded in getting away
from the wreck. . .
Derricks were erected today at likely
points to lower men down tomorrow to
recover the bodies washed up, and if
possible to discover the name of the
vessel from the wreckage. Divers will
be sent from here if it is found to be
mpossible to obtain the steamer's
name by, other means, but nobody now
cares to" act until instructions are re

The recovery and burial of the dead
bodies of the ship's company have been
ordered by the marine department.

that a check for this amount has been

TWO EDITORS SHOT.
Denver, Col., January 13. Frederick
G. Bonfils and H. II. Tammen, proprie

shot in their office at noon today by
W. W. Anderson, a prominent local at

was mortally injured. Both were able
to walk to carriages that carried them

walked out of the office, unmolested,
but later was arrested. The exact
cause of the shooting is not known.
Anderson went to the editorial rooms
of The Post and entered the office of
Bonfils and Tammen. Polly Pry, a
