Dover, Del., March 2.-For the first time in four years the State of Delaware today secured full repro sentation in the United States senate. At a special session the State legis lature elected State Senator J. Frank Allee (Union Republican) to the sen atorship which expires in 1907, and Congressman L. Hoister Ball (Regu lar Republican) to the term expiring in 1905. The selection was un doubtedly due to pressure from Washington brought to bear upon the Regular Republicans in the legis laturo who havc all along been op posed to the election of J. Edward Addicks or any of his adherents to the United States senate. Congress man Dick of Ohio came to Dover to day in the interest of Republican harmony. He established bead quarters at the Hotel Richardson where, prior to the joint seas'on of the legislature he received a delega tion from each Republican faction. He advised the acceptance by the Regular R.'publicauns of the Union Republicans' proposition agreed upon in Philadelphia Saturday that. a Union Republican be elected to the long term senatorship and a Regular Republican for the shot term, Ad. dioks himself being eliminated.
