Fx Governor Fnlnier Chosn Senator From Illinois After u Long nml Fventlnl Struggle. (By United Pres). Spuinofield, III., March 11. General John M. Pulrr: was elected to the U. S. tienatoon tho tirst ballot of tho Illinois Legislature in joint assembly to-day An oxeiting scene followed. It appearod to hi a foregone conclusion this morn ing that. Gen. Palmer would bo elected to-day by tho solid 101 Democratic votes of tho j iut assembly assisted by those ofthl'.M. li A men, Messrs. Moore aud Cockrell. Yet the Republicans were not re ily to go down without a struggle. They lu l l a caucus to seo if they could act at lea.t kill oil tho.Deniocratio can didate. To that end tho steering com- lnitieo was empowered to handle the matter us it might thiuk best. That conunitteo held a cousultation, and at its conclusion sent for represen tative Mooio, one of tho F. M. B. A. men, and ilTered there the solid Repub lican vot f 1" ' is" and his two cou- i join them. This offer was considered good politics in any event, if accepted, would defeat General Palmer. The Final Roll Call. The roll was called at 12:15. Tho Re publicans refused to answer to their names. Cockrell and Moore both re loaded. The roll showed 101 Demo-crat- and 2 Alliancemen to ba presont. The l.Tlth ballot was then taken. It re sulted: Palnur 103; Liudley 100; Streeter 1. Tho Republicans had decided to sup port Lindley. It was an exciting occa sion. When Tanberneck voted for Streeter ho dropped back in his chair and cried freely. One of the Republican members was quite iutoxicatcd and was raising a disturbance. The verification of the roll-call showed every Republican voting for Lindley, every Democrat for Palmer, and Tanber neck for Streeter. Speaker Crafts then declared John M. INllner duly elected as United States Sir at or. Deafening applause from the Democratic side, and the galleries greet ed tail announcement. Palmer Notified. General Palmer was notified of his election, and was conducted into tho Cl.nmbr by tho notifying committee. Speaker Crafts introduced him and he spoke as follows : "Gentlemen of tho 37th General As somWy : - You ought scarcely to expect rne to sputk at this time. I feel more like saying : 'Ain't I glad to get out of tho wilderness.' I thank you one hundred and one members for vindicating the rights of the people. By a plurality of votes was expended the desire of the people to select me Senator and my elec tion is historical. You men who have WRECK ON TIIK R. & D. One Man Killrd and Several Injured in a Wreck Near Danville, Va. (By United Press.) Danville, Va., March 11 -Great ex citement was created Lure this afternoon by a report that the delayed south bound passenger train on the Richmond & Dan ville road leaving thin city about noon had collided with another train" about three miles from Danville and that thirty people wero killed. The Register's re porters rodo at once to tho scene of tho wreck, but fouud that the accident was nothing like so bad us had been reported. Indeed there was no collision at all. The train left tho track and was badly wrecked, but only ono man was killed. Tho train was a heavy one and was being pulled by two engines, tho assisting en gine beiug in front. Too tender of this engine jumped ' ho track and the engine behind soon followed. The front engine was not damaged but tho second one was ditched and badly wrecked. Tho bag gage and mail cars were also ditched ;i d they wero smashed, but the passenger cars were not much in jured and the sleepers did not leave the track. Fireman G. M. Robert son, of tho front engine, either jumped, or was thrown from the cab. Ho was oHUht under the rear eugiuo and in Muutlj Li'Iei V Eugineer L. Bryant, and fireman W. II. Jackson, of the rear en gine, were caught under the wreck, and their escape was seemingly miraculous, as they were seriously hurt. The bag gage master, man agent and express messenger were slightly hurt, but the wonder is that all were not killed. ENGLAND. THE INS;DE OF IT. PBICE 5 CENTS THE CHRONICLE'S TELEGRAM EXPL VINS THE VATTERSON HILL EPISODE. The Retiring Sea Troubles Have Finally Keen Settled, and W e Shall Have a Rest. By United Press.l Washington, March 11. The; text of the last letter from Lord Salisbury to Sir Julian Pauncefote tho British Min ister here, on tho Behring Sea seal trou bles, published this morning, practically accepts arbitration suggested by Secie tary Blaine in his last communication on the subject, and bids fair to lead to a settlement of hat vexed question. Lord Salisbury accepts as proper for arbitration all tho essential parts of tho six points suggested by Secretary Blaine, which cover tho question whether the United States has any rights in Behring Sea outside of tho Uaual territorial limits. The question of damages due from the United States for seizures of British ves sels will also probably bo included in arbitration. It Says That Wattcrson's Letter Was Written by Him, but Aftei wards Was Consigned to the Waste Basket Out of Which it Was Fished. (By United Press.) New York, March 11. A special to the Worid from Keokuk, Iowa, savs : "From information which eaaio into the possession of the World representative yesterday it is clear that the insids his tory of the origin and disposition of the Wattersou-Hili letter has never been sjiven to the public. Eiriy in January Col. W---?rson cams to Iowa on a Uctirring tour. Ho de livered his celebrated lecture on "Money and Morals" in the cities of Grinneli, Des Moines, W interact and hero iu Keokuk. .With D.-moer.-ts he discussed politics aud gave it as his opinion thac one result of tho late elections would hi tbe nomination ofJieveland, and he ex pressed a desire for Democratic harmony iu the country at large, and especial iy iu New York. With that object in view he s iid ho had written a letter to Gov Hi!i which ho went on to describe mi nutely, a description which corresponded exactly with the letter which appeared soon after that in the columns of the Eistern press and which Gov. Hill de nied ever having received. Mr. Watterson further said that after having written the letter doubts arose in his mind as to whether it would most help or hurt matters, and not beiug able to satisfy himself on that point ho mailed the letter to Mr. Cleveland and aiked for his advice on the matter Mr. Cleveland kept the letter two weeks and then returned it with the re mark that ho doubted tho advisability of sending it. Mr. Watterson thereupon threw it in to the waste basket, from which he no doubL supposed it would never be resur rected. How tho letter finally got into print, he, probably, does not know, but that it was pither fishftd nnt of tho wa.c-" paper receptacle of the Courier Journui office, or that a copy of it was surrep titiously made while it was in Mr. Cleve lacd's possession, there can be no doubt. It will bo remembered that in his reply, to G V Hill's denial of tho receipt of the Utter, Mr. Watterson now says he sent it. Ho declares that ho wroto it, and beyond that this denial is evasive. THE SOUTHERN EXPOSITION. The Chamber of Commerce Getting Things in the Right Shape. The Chamber of Commerce, as previ ously stated, held a meeting last night. In the absence of the President, W. G.

Morrison have long boen intimate friends and they have many friends in common. Mr. Carlisle is one of them.

He then burned the clothes in the furnace. Peterson lived in Sioux City for two months after the murder and then came here.
