Tope k A, Kas., Jan. 28. Amid intense
excitement and under the most peculiar
circumstances surrounding an election of
this kind Judge John Mirtin, leader of
the fusion Democracy of Kansas, was yes
terday afternoon elected to the senate by a
combination cf Populists and Democrats.
Martin received the solid vote of the
twenty-five Pepulists and Democrats in
the senate; it the Populist house he re
ceived f2 vote'v.this number including sev
eral of those who have been seated by the
Populist on contests. But his election
leaves the sulfation as complicated as be

done by the fetes of a house the constit

The Republicans and the stalwart Demo
crats claim thJt the election is a farce by
reason that thi Populist bouse is an illegal
body and non4of its acts can be le?al. The
Republicans and themselves in a prvdica
ment for the rlnson that they are unable to
muster a quorum to vote on senator and
will not be able to do so until their rights
in the house have been passed upon by the
courts. If thsbourts decide that the Re
publicans bae the constitutional lower
house then thtr will elect another senator
who will undoubtedly be a straighout
Democrat, and; the contest for recognition
will be transft-rred to Washington. The
morning was frnsily spent by the leaders
of the factionskrying to keep their men in
line. The supreme moment came a few

Mrs. Diggs said: "The People's party

A Mistake rn Calling the Roll in the
Honse Inquiry at Jollet. '
SruiscFlELD, Jan. 26. There was a
warm time in the house yesterday and for
a time it looked as though there would be
a few fights to a finish a la Corbett-Sulli-van,
but the peace was preserved. Ths
election committee reported in favor of
sending a sub-committee to Chicago to
take evidence in the Van Praag-Bish con
tested election case. The Republicans
opposed the move and said they wanted thf
inquiry held here in the capitol, so that
the members of the legislature . could see

Sort of Counted Them In.
Roll was called on a motion to table tht
sub-committee proposal and the result wa
announced as 77 to 73 against the motion
to table. The Republicans challenged the
roll, declaring that Smith and Ferns re
corded as voting against tabling wer
not in the city at all. Some Democrats
said they had seen the men in the chamber
and Speaker Crafts decided that the roll
must stand, when lo! it was discovered
that Smith and Ferns were both ab
sent and had not been in the hall all day.
But the motion was tabled and the Re
publicans fought the sub-committee with
proposition that the whole committee con
duct the inquiry. Points of order, appeals,
etc, followed and finally the speaker de
clared the session adjourned.

Washington, Jan. 26. Reports received
here from Kansas lead Republicans to
abandon hope of controlling tbe senate.
From these advices it seems now extreme

be returned to succeed Perkins. This, with
California's new Democratic senator, would
make tbe senate a tie and give Vice Presi
dent Stevenson tbe deciding vote.
