Columtus, O., Jan. . In reply to the
report! 'about Secretary Sherman, As
sistant Secretary Day, Ttepresentative
Grosvencr and others being; made the
Republican I'nltcd States eenatoriai
nominee, Uanna yesterday aid posi
tively that be would never retire. He
says he was nominated by the Toledo
state convention for senator and can
not retire In favor of any other or.e.
If he Is defeated the reeponslbillty for
dl.reeardir.ft the decree cf thestate con
vention will rest on those who are now
co-opc ratlnit with the Democrats, The
senator inslrts that he will never with
draw, even If dcteat should become in
vlte4le; but he Ftlll Insets that he
will win out Otfore another week rolls
around. Hffnno, Kurtz and other lead
ers are new almost worn out, ar.d they
evidently have a long struggle s'ill
ahead of them.
Itarke Retains to His Party.
In the senate yesterday Burke
showed seme tendency to co-rperate
with his Republican colleagues. The
Democrats wanted to report the com
mittee, but Rurke stopped It by sayir.g
he would vote with the Republicans.
Later In the day Hurke was in confer
ence with Ilanr.a, and he sport most
of bia time with the Uanna workers.
The Republicans announced Tuesday
that Uiey would hold no Joint senator
ial caucus, and the Democratio mem
bers have made the same announce
ment. The arrtl-Hanna Republicans
will have no caucus, so that there will
be no test cf strength till next Tuesday,
hllo tha Ilanr.a men are still short
three or more votes on the currqnt
claims cf both sides, yet the -combine"
Is having Its troubles in fixing on
some ne who can command all the
Democratic votes as well as that of the
Threat uf aa lodeflnlto Deadlock.
The nntl-llanra Remihlirnna an.
nounce positively that under no circum-
-lanre win mey vote for a Democrat.
They will continue fhe deadlock indefi
nitely rather than elect a Democratic
sen.Ttrr. The Tress was out w ith a sen
sational extra edition lart night an
nPTrncipe; that the Democratic prosecut
ing attorney had presented the sena
torial situation to the pratid Jury. In
referring to this IrquieHlon The Dress

mitted to the grand Jury from Repre

The Uanna men iatiah at th attp-nnt
to aecare tillctmenta against certain
workers and say that the men who are
trend. ng the nvney are the one to
uiee the cry abjut bribery. The cry of
the opposition has been that of "bess-
ism Ana Boodle" during the contest.
At (be anti-Hanna hp.nr.nwrt.ir. th.-

sion la.t night, but. refused to give the
name of the member Senator Burks and
aeverni other members got away from

ship comes a report that Mrs. Snider,
the wife of Representative Snider, of
Green county, is taking an Interest in
the contest, and Is unfavorable to the
opposition. Snider attended the lte
publtcan house caurna Ht " Satitr.titr

on aionuay, but the opposition is con
stantly after him to vote against Uan

about Representative Griffith, and es
pecially about the Dreferene of Un
Griffith, thtre nre reports that the
wives or other Republican members are
being enlisted In the contest.
And there are renorts that the
of some Democratic members are urg
ing xr.eir nusbands not to vote for any
RipubMsan senator, but to stand out
for a Democrat. Kurtz and hi km.
e!ats are reported to be unable to con
trol the anti-Hanna Repuhfican mem-
cers tor a rvmocratlc senator, and the
Mi Lean mannccrs are believed t. hv
the same trouble to get all the Demo

Not Soli to Crnt.h. and a St. Louis Sjnat
rate- in the l icld.
St. Iou1s, Jan. C The news man who
telegraphed all over the country that
Brush, the Indianapolis base ball man,
had bought the Von dcr Ahe segrega
tion of the National League, was un
doubtedly "too previous." Drush has
not bought the club. It appears now
that there Is a sort of contest between
a syndicate of St. Louis men and an
other syndicate headed by John T.
Brush, for the control of the St. Louis
League franchise. Brush is in the Mis
souri city all right, and with him he
has William Sthraidt, of Indianapolis,
and a sache! In which $60.0v0 Is neatly
tucked away. Intended for part pay
ment on the purchase of the basa ball
But Brush probably will not get his
hands on the Browns after all. Yes
terday it was announced on the best of
authority that a syndicate of you"n.2
business men of St. Louis has made ail
arrangements for buying the Browns
nnd will pay $:0,OOO for the National
Le?ue franchise, grr.und3, etc., whicii
will be turned over by President Von
fier Ahe free of all Incumbrance.
Von dr Ahe was seen last night and
said: The truth of the whole matter
is that these gentlemen are all dicker
ing for the Browns, and that as yet no
deal has been coasumij-.ated. You can
bank on thisv despite what anybody
