WASHINGTON. D C. . Feb. 10.-SpoclnlTele [
gram to THC Br.c"A reformation of party
lines. " Tills Is the explanation made by
prominent democrats In con rre-w of Mr.
Cleveland s action in calling Judge Walter
Q , Grcsh.im of Chicago to the iwrtfollo of
scfri'turj of state.
It was reported in Washington yesterday
nflernoo" and reaffirmed by rumors in con-
grcsiiouai i-irrles last night , that Judge
Grcsham had been tendered and had ac
cepted the secretaryship of state , but it was
not given credence by those who were sup
posed to be In a position to know something
of the president-elect's Intcrilions. When
Ihe announcement was made through the
newspapers Ihls morning , and verified In Ihe
most positive manner by Representalive
Springer of Illinois and others democrats
were free tc express their private opinion
of the new turn In building "the Cleveland
party " Judirc Gresham's selection as pre
mier of the now cabinet comes as a stinging
blow to the old lino" nnd s | > oils democrats.
They tremble over what may bo in store for
them , now that the president-elect has evl-
dintlj d'HcnniiH'd to disregard his party
and appeal to the country Visions of civil
service reform and mugwumpery hang about
and menace them like a scourge. Notice has
been served upon the old party leaders that
they are to have a president who fears not
the machine or the individuals who compose
U , and one who has already made up bin
mind that partj ties are uncertain and dis-
npKInttnp |
Planning For III * Own Pnrty.
One of the most prominent democratic
members of the Indiana delegation said that
it was evidentlj the intention of Mr. Cleve
land to not oul > reform party lines , regulat
ing loaders and creating new ones , but to
forcibly slough off the rabble : that , to use
his own language. "Mr. Cleveland has un
doubtedly come to Dm conclusion that it is
time for him to get off the Bowery and move
down Fifth avenue. ' '
After his overwhelming defeat in attempt
ing to reiwal the silver purchase act. Mr.
Cleveland has concluded that ho will be con
fronted throughout his entire administration
with a divided party in congress and his
only course will be to frame measures , pre-
penl them to congress , and let the rcsi > ons-
iblllty rest theriv appealing to the country
for his vindication. He has determined to
bring the mugwump element. led
by Greshatn and MeVeagh nnd others
of thai school , lo Ihe front as
counselors and leaders and send to the rear
such veterans as Morrison , Voorhces. Mor-
Kau and others , who were party leaders
when Mr Cleveland was sheriff at Buffalo.
It is believed by democrats and republicans
hero that Mr Cleveland Intends to bid hich
for jiopullst suiiport. nnd that ho will dis
regard the party machine wherever U does
not offer prompt obedience , and that his aim
in calling Grcbham to the Department of
Slate Is lo conciliate Ihe farmers , who have
ever since his "famous" Wnbasti decision
been led lo believe that Gresham is their
siKX'ial champion.
It will be Mr Grtsham's duty to persuade
the American fanners that all the benefits
which must In the next few years accrue to
the agricultural classes from the policy of
reciprocity , should be placed lo the credit of
the Clovelan J administration.
Peel Itiither Put Out.
The friends of every disappointed cabinet
aspirant are ut a white heat of indignation
nt the Grcsham preferment , but most of
1 them , with a due regard for Mr. Cleveland's
rich store of patronage , are chary about ex-
I pressing their opinions for publication. The
' Illinois iricnds of Mr. Morrison , and the
Indiana supporters of ox-Governor Gray are
I particularly bitter. Mr. Morrison , his
friends claim , was ft democrat even before
President Grant picked up Mr. Grcsham
from obscurity nnd brought him Into public
notice. Gray's friends.bitlcrly protest thai
' the ex-governor stepped out of Cleveland's
i way at Chicago last year only after Mr.
i Whitney's distinct promise of a place in the
cabinet , and they add that if he should now ,
after the appointment of Gresham. accept
any place under the Cleveland administra
tion , ho would not only lose all self-respect
but casts among his friends In Indiana.
The southern democrats in the house bit
terly point out that Judge Grcsham en
dorsed , If he did not champion , the first
"force bill.'and the larlff reformers In con-
press call altentlon to the fact that
Gresham's enthusiasm for tariff reform was
never sufficient to take him out of the repub
lican parly until after President Harrison's
rcnomiuatlon in IbtfJ.
1 Will Not riilillcljr Protent.
i Allogelher no contemplate ! ! stop , by man
or party , has aroused such'a whirlwind
i of Indignation and angry protest as
this proposition of Mr. Cleveland's to
I make Mr. Gresham his secretary of
[ state , and yet it is safe to assert
1 that not a single protest will be forwarded
\ from Washington against the appointment
f for Iho simple reason that no democrat bo-
Hevcs a protest from a member from his own
i party would receive any consideration at the
[ hinds of Mr Cleveland.
U Is of Interest to add that the Gresham
news was tirsl brought hew bv Representa
tive William I. Wilson of West Virginia , the
same gentleman who announced only a day
or two ago that Mr. Cleveland was dolor-
mined not to again appoint any of his old
office holders.
COMMENT IN Ni\V YOIIK.

Ton n lluic to Say.
NEW YOIIK , Feb. 10. Referring to the re
port from Chicago that Prestdeut-elecl ClevO'
land had offered Judge Gresham the secre
taryship of state the Washington corre
spondent of the Herald says :
"Tho information , generally accepted , that
Judge Walter Q. Grcsham has boon offered
nud accepted the secretaryship of state
under Cleveland created much gossip here
today.
"Democrats were unwilling to freely ex.
press themselves on a subject upon which
they were nol furnished absolute proof ,
When for aivument's saice they admitted
the statement to bo true the tone was uu
favorable.
'Mr Cleveland is criticised for the np
polnlment Judge Gresham's motives In ac
cepting the place and his ability and hlgli
character are r.ot questioned to any extout.
Mr CJivcland. U Is said by some close
friends , did not expect to make an appolnl
ment cf Uus Kind without stirring up a
sionu In Ihe t'e-nocrolle party. He hojies ,
however , that in time the party and the
general public will endorse the npjiointment
as eminently fit and proper. Some of the
Irreeot . .tables are quoted as saying thcv
fear Mr I'levi'land's self-will will bo a bat !
thing for the democratic | wrtv.
"Iho apHilnlinenl | , it is believed in some
quarters , will result In uaUmufe bolns
given tt > Hill ami Murphy , should these twc
dcterirlne to make war on the administra
tion.
Palmer' * Pncul Feeling * .
"Senator Palmer is thought to bo in an
unpleasant frame of mind Mr. Morrison
caucot bclic'-e Hie report Is irue , Mr Isaac
P. Gray , It Is presumed , will bo given a
bureau appolnlmcnt or mission abroad.
"Senator Palmer said that he Know Judge
Orcsham and admired him. 'I think a good
democrat might have been found somewhere ,
If not In Illinois , for this , the most important
fublnct place. I know U is claimed that
Judge Grt'sham 1 * now n democrat , but I be
lieve be confesses himself a democrat only
to the extent of having voted for Cleveland
at the last election. I am not dls | > osed to

bill I must say I believe many good ilcino *
crats xUH be disappointed. They may have
no right to feel ag/rleved , for the reason
thai a president is expected to exercise his
own judgment and personal preference in
the ipl'H'ilon of socrelnry of state , but stfll
they aiv likely lo do o. '
"The senator docs not think the Illinois
democrals will bolt. He evidently thinks
they will got over their disappointment.
When asked his opinion as to the politi
cal wisdom of the ap | > ointment in a general
way , Senator Palmer replied thai he felt a
delicacy in expressing himself on this | Kjlnt.
because ho had not been consulted , and it
was probably none of his business. He ven
tured to s.i.\ . however , that Mr. Cleveland
had certainly departed from the ordinary
lines of | ) llllcal precedence. "
Surprise for Ne.iv Yorker * .
Locally the newspaper says : "The poli
ticians were trealod lo a genuine surprise
yesterday in the announcement that Judge
Walter ( J. Greshatn of Chicago was to be-
secrolary of slate in Mr. Cleveland's cabinet.
Democrats did not believe U | > ossible that
the president-elect would go outside of the
par't.\ for tin1 premier In his administration ,
but it certainly looks as if Mr. Cleveland had
again manifested his spirit of Independence
aiul chosen for the place Ihe man Dial he
considered best fitted for it , lrres | > ectlve of
party. "
Kdltorially the World ha * this to say on
the subject :
Assuming the tnilh of Ihe report , ' it Is an
example of Mr. Cleveland's i > olitlcal bold
ness , thus to call to what Is nominally the
lirst place among his advisers one who has
onlv ri'ccntl.v Joined the democratic party.
Judge Grcsnam Is a conspicuous representa
tive of the great host of former republicans
who haxe broken with their party because
of its Inlldelii.v to the people's Interesls and
have brouirht the democratic party into
power in order lo reslore Iho administration
of the national government to the principles
of duly and responsibility on which the
nation was founded.
Of Judge Gresham's great ability and
high character there can be no question.
He U thoroughly American in all his in
stincts and training. ' '
YVuultl Occiialnn Kntlinslaiini.
The Time * , speaking editorially , says :
"Mr. Cle\eland's reported invitation to
Judge Walter Q. Gresham to take the place
of secretary of state in his cabinet is re
ceived with marked satisfaction by promi
nent senators in Washington. Apart from
the fact that Judge Gresham is a man of the
highest character and of decided ability , his
selection i- , anew guaranty of disregard of
narrow political considerations on the p ; rt
of Mr. Cleveland. The apiKiintmenl would
be regarded with enthusiasm in the west. "
Tt'e Sun says : "In substantiation of Ihe
news from Chicago concerning Judge Gres
ham. those close to Mr. Cleveland
in New York admitted yesterday that
the i > ortfolio of secretary of state
had boon offered to the Judge , and
thai Ihcro was reason to believe he would
accept. This would make the cabinet up to
date stand : Secretary of stale. Waller Q.
Gresham of Indiana ; secrclary of Ihe treas
ury. John G. Carlisle of Kentucky : secre
tary of war , Daniel S. Lament of New York.
' It is known that Mr. Cleveland has se
lected his iwslmaster general , bul neither ho
nor any of his friends will eive the name.
Some of them say the place has been given
to a western man.
"Kx-Governor Isaac Pusey Gray and his
Indiana friends have insisted that the port

CIllL'ACiO SATISFIKD.
Democrat * oftlio Windy City.Seem Pleased
ut the Aiulntiiient.
CmcACio , 111. , Feb. 10. Judge Gresham
stated to a prominent democrat of Chicago
not more than four weeks ago , when the
question of his elevation to the supreme
bench was under discussion , that he could
not see his way clear to accepting any posi-
tiou \Vushniglon. . He did not think him
self equal , financially or physically , to the
demands which would be rnaae upon a man
occupying such a posilion , and he would
refuse any gift in Ihe disi > osal ot Ihe pres
ident. Chlcaifo democrats were of but one
opinion that the sek-clion was an admirable
one , if il has been made. John Mayo
Palmer , son of Senalor Palmer , said :
"If Ihe appointment were made I think it
would give great satisfaction to the people
at large , bul wouldjxt first be resented by
those who are classed as polllicians for ob
vious reasons. If , as I believe , Mr. Cleve
land regards Iho republican parly as having
gouo into bankruptcy , because its mission
has > been accomplished , and intends to re
organize iKirlics upon living issues and
draw to the support of his administration
all Ihose who agree with him upon Ihe pol
icy of larlff reform and a sound financial
syslem. without regard to their opinions
ui > on ISMICS which have been settled , nolhlng
could lw wiser than to take as ono of his ad
visers such u man as Judge Gresham , whose
opinions upon Iheso .luesllons and sjmpalhy
with the people as against aggregations of
wealth art ? so widely and favorably known.
F. S. Winston was emphatic in his ap
proval. "No boiler seleclion could be nade , "
he said. "H would bo an ideal nomination ,
both us regards a striking of the jiopular
fhord and as a slroke of democratic iwlitics.
The only fear I have is that Judge Grcsham
will not see his wav clear to accepting : ! . "
Until the apiKjintment Is announced on the
authority of Mr. Cleveland Franklin Mae-
Veuirh said it would be premature to discuss
it. -I cannot help , however , saying thai It
Is one of the most strategic moves ever made
m a political field if it is made. " he said. "It
will strengthen the reform element the
> oung i-lenu-nt in Ihe party , and effectually
bind that class of former republicans who
came over to the democracy last year , con
vinced that Ihelr former parly had oulllved
ils usefulness. "
Judge Thoman fell that the news , If true ,
was but another indication of the divorco-
nicnt of high governmenl Irusls from slrictly
partisan iwlitics. Colonel Sexton had similar
views. Kdward G. Mason regretted that the
apiwiatmenl was even mooted , as. as a law
yer , ho would much prefer to see Judge
Grcham remain on the bench.
liiilcu ( iresham Mart ! lit Work ,
Judge Grcsham accomplished a tremendous
amount of work in his private office at the
government building. From about 10.SO :
o'clock in the morning until nightfall his
dek was ecu-red with Ihe legal papers In
cases which had becn ubmttlcd to his deci
sion , and those occupied his undivided ntteu-
tlon during iho cnllre day. His callers were
nol numerous , and , though they were cour
teously received , reference to political affairs
met with no encouragement. When the
Judge reached his office m Ihe morning he at
once locked himself in his room and re
mained for same time In consultation with
an at oniey who -had called on legal busi
ness. He afterward admitted to his cham
ber tho.se whose business necessitated n
personal interview.
. The judge's chamber was m-rhaps the moat
comfortable spot in the building. A bright
coal tire was burning In the grate , near
which. In an easy chair , the Judge was
seated. In answer to a query put touching
upon the re | > ort that he had acivpled a place
in Mr. Cleveland's cabinet as MH-retary of
state the Judge replied wllh delibcralion :
"I have nothing to "bay. " Other queries met
with n like response , the judge politely refusing -
! fusing lo be led Into u conversation on Ihe
I subJecU
I Around Ihe governmenl building ihoro
i was a good deal of simulation as to the ac
curacy of the report. "Judging from appear
ances it looks very much us if It were true , "
said one old court official. "The judge has
left his scat in the court of appeals to work
on decisions in his chambers and this looks
as if he wquted to clean matters up.

DCADWOOD , S. D. . Feb. in. [ Ppecl.il Tele
gram to THE HIE. ] As has already been re-
l > orted , the two murderers , Marks and Un-
capapa-Hoy , were brought to Pine Kidgo
yesterday. The arrest was made by a nephew
of Youne-Man-Afrald-of-His-Horses , Hoar-
House , and Short-Bui' ' . They were escorted
to the agency by Youug-Man-Afrald-of-Hls-
Horses and 21O of his braves. Arriving at
the airency they formed a hollow square and
Marks , a son of Two Sticks , surrendered his
gun to the agent , Captain Brown. Brown
turned the prisoners over to United States
Marshal Fry of South iJakota , who arrived
here with them this morning.
The murderers refuse to make any state
ment. They arc both young bucks , neither
one over 17 years old. They are "blanket
Indians , " and belong to the almost extinct
band of Broken Bow Siouxs.
The prisoners were brought before the
United States grand Jury this afternoon that
they might exercise their challenges to the
Jury. In an interview with Judge John H.
Burns , their counsel , he declined to disclose
the exact line of defense , but expressed him
self as confident of being able to
show ujxin trial that the de
fendants had no guilty connection whatever
with the killing , and have always been well
behaved boys , rather than red-handed cut
throats as reported. They iilleee that the
Indian police gave them no chance to sur
render , as they were willing to do , but
opened Hre at close range witnout warning
or challenge , ana that While-Face-Horse fell
dead and Two-Sticks staggered and reeled
under the mortal wounds received , while the
clothing worn by the defendants was riddled
with bullets , but they escaped unhurt and
fled to the Indian village , where they were
advised by Young-Man-Afrald-of-His-Horses
and others that they should go to the "little
father , " as Captain Brown Is called , and
surrender.
' felt Their I'oiltlon.
The defendants , on being .brought into
court to present their challenge to the grand
Jury , seemed impressed with the solemn im-
iwrtance of the occasion , and keenly ob
served all that took place. They wore
rather shabby clothing , but their scalp locks
were ornamented with the usual sacred med
icine bag and eatrle feathers. Their counsel
removed these , causing a sad look to over
spread their dusky countenances. They said
they had worn them since they had been
able to ride a pony , and by virtue of their
mystical influences they had been able to
lead happy lives , harming none and being by
none harmed.
The case will not be tried at present , but
will go over to the next term.
1 have Just had an interview with Marshal
Fry. who states that he received information
that friends of the murdered men would
l.vneh the prisoners as they came through
Herniosa. He increased nis number of guards
iml Just before arriving at Hermosa pulled
down the blinds in the passenger coach ,
locked both doors and stationed himself and
Deputy Mathiesoii at the doors. When the
train pulled into Hermosa a large crowd was
at the. dejiot and seemed to be very anxious
to see the prisoners , but Fry told them ho
would allow no admittance under any circum
stances , and that he meant what ho said.
They evidently took him at his word and
withdrew. Fry has stationed a death watch
over the prisoners , being afraid Two Sticks'
son will commit suicide. It is rumored that
the grand jury has indicted the prisoners for
murder in the llrst degree.
Wyoming Cuttle and Politics.
Colonel \V. H. Parker , a leading lawyer of
Deadwood , is in the city. Colonel Parker
was one of the attorneys in the recent cattle
difllculty cases tried in Wyoming. Speaking
of thematteryesterday.hesaid : "lamof the
opinion that the unpleasantness that arose
over cattle interests In Wyoming has about
run Its course. I believe that those who en
gaged In the dlflteulte see very clearly now
that it was detrimental to the state
and they will not again enter Into It. Those
portions of the state most affected by the
disturbance constitute the most productive
section of the state and It was unfortunate
that such a disturbance should overtake the
community. "
Heferring to the efforts being made In the
Wyoming legislature to elect a senator Col
onel Parker said he did not believe the body
would succeed in reaching au election. Ho
thought that the governor would bo obliged
to appoint and that would mean a democrat
for senator.

PlEniiE , S. D. , Feb. 10. [ Special Telegram
to THE BEE. ] The World's fair bill went
through the house today and while the sum
named is not so large as friends of the meas
ure expected , ? oO,000 at least Is secured. The
bill provides that the commissioners shall be
chosen by the governor , senate and house ,
three each , and bo evenly divided between
the three political parties. The senate will
certainly refuse to concur in the reduced ap
propriation and the sum finally fixed will
undoubtedly be about jfO.OOO. Of this f 10.-
000 goes to the women's board , and their
success is duo largely to the earnest efforts
of Mrs William Duff Haynle of Kapid City ,
who has been here for the past month.
In the house the following bills were in
troduced : Providing for the registration of
births and deaths , for the formation of
building and loan associations , regulating
tolls to be charged for grinding grains , and
others of less Immrtance. The following bil s
passed : Forbidding the killing of game
birds before September 1 , extending the
boundaries of Custer , Meade and Penning-
tou counties so as to absorb the county of
Siebach and bring big cattlemen within

OEXVF.H. Colo.iFqb. 10. Heiwrts from
southern Colorado ? tell of the continuation
of the blockade of the railroads by snow ,
which , in many places. Is still falling.
Snow slides are numerous , es | > ceally ! In
the vicinity of Telluride and Silverton. Near
the latter place a snuw slide this morning Is
reported to have done considerable damage
to property.
PJJIn addition to the terrible snow slide which
killed four men oil the Yirginius road last
night , another avallmclie came down at
Riverside , on the Mears toll road , accom
panied by half a dozen smaller ones , carry
ing away the Ouray-Ironton mall stage and
horses and a team and sleigh belongln g to
Dr. Hereford of this place. The stage driver
and Dr. Hereford succeeded in getting out
of the snow and reached .Ouray this morn
ing. ' Their horses , however , were swept
over a precipice , and although two of them
are still alive , it is harJly jtossiblo that they
can be rescued.
In western Colorado the storm is the heav
iest ever exjierieiicod. and a terrible slide is
reiwrtcJ near Breekinridgc. in which two
trainmen were killed and four slightly in
jured.
A South Park railroad crew , with two en
gines pushing rotary plows , were fighting
snow this morning.- when an avalanche
rushed down the mountain side , catching
one engine and two plows , and hurling them
down the hill. Ensineer Lynch and Fire
man Smith were burled beneath their en
gine and instantly killed , and Engineers
Boynton and MeGreevey , Fireman Rowan
ami Brakeman Hawkins were slightly in
jured. Engineer Lynen's body has tx-en re
covered , but Fireman Smith's remains are
still In the snow. ,
Between Crested Butte and Ruby another
slide occurred , and two Italian labbrcrs are
said to be covered in It.
The passenger train from Monarch to Sa-
lida , due at 4IO : yesterday , has not yet ar
rived and Us location .is unknown. The
snow is very deep on this road , and the train
is undoubtedly blockadeu.
Aspen reports heavy , drifting snows and

meeting. He Intimated that the government
had plenty of time to act ID a deliberate

yet in view of the possibility of reaching

immediate action in the premises was not
deemed necessary.

S [ > ocial to THE BEE. ) The latest attempts
of the Corriiran party to discredit Cardi
nal Giblnms and diminish the prestige of
Mgr. Satolll have caused considerable ex
citement. I am in a iwsition to give a most
unqualified and authoritative denial to the
report that the appointment of the apostolic
delegate was directly or remotely brought
about by the suppression or delaying of in
formation with regard to the opinion of the
American archbishops concerning the estab
lishment of a i > ermanent delegation.
When the question was submitted to the
recent confcrencci eleven archbishops pro
nounced against a permanent delegation.
Archbishop Ireland alone voted In Us favor ,
while Cardinal Gibbons , with his usual pru
dence , held aloof. The IIH islon of the con
ference was instantly communicated to Mgr.
Satolli. A few hours later he wrote a letter
ofllclally informing the Vatican of the vote.
This letter was received here loug before
Mgr. O'Connell's return. The pope , there
fore , did not act in ignorance when he con
firmed Mgr. Satolll's powers.
Curri uii In IjOtlnt ; CSround.
The intrigues of Archbishop Corrigan's
adherents , their qulbblings and mlsstatc-
ments. have. I fear , offended the pope. Mirr.
O'Connell has not been snubbed by his holi
ness. On reading of his allegeJ rebuff in
the Herald Mgr. Council drove to the Vati
can and told the i > opo himself that the talcs
were current. Pope Ieo expressed his in
dignation and strongly denounced the reports
as malicious.
ArchJishop ) Corrisan's Roman friends
are now tri ing to harm Dr. McGlynn by
hawking about accounts of his pre
tended irreverence at the recent re
ception given by Dr ! Funk of
New York. In this connection 1 may briefly
answer Father Connolly's disingenuous as-
seition that Archbishop Corrigan sent no
protest about the manner of Dr. McGlynn's
reinstatement to the propaganda. In p > int
of fact the protest was addressed to Car
dinal I jdochowski , who is prefect of the
propaganda , with permission to transmit it
to the Vatican. The fine distinction may ap
pear important to Archbishop Corrigan , but
it will hardly strike the public in that

IxiNiiov , Feb. 10. In the House of Com
mons today the appearance of Michael
Davltt , the newly elected member for North
west Cork , was the stenal for prolonged
cheerlnc among the Irish home rule mem
bers and the radicals.
ArtliurJ. Balfour , leader of the unioiusts ,
s | > eke at length in favor of extending the
debate on the address. He reminded
the hous that when the conserva
tives were In 'onice the Hl > erals had Insisted
UIKHI longer debates on the address.
Mr. Gladstone questioned the correctness
of Mr. Balfour's statement. That matter ,
however , was not of vital Imiwtance. He
objected to the manner in which the exten
sion of the d-jbate had been introduced
without previous notice.
Mr. Balfour replied with spirit that ho
had not only given notice , but also had de
bated the question last evening , when the
right honorable gentleman oppa od , was
more nureeably occupied. This slur had an
unexpected effect on the house. The liberal
and Irish members answered itith cries of
"shame" and jeers , \\hich completely
drowned the opposition cheers for Mr.
Balfonr.
Mr Balfour paused until the confusion
subsided and then added that ho assumed
Hurt the right honorable gentleman had been
made acquainted with the circumstances of
the debate through his colleague i Sir Wil-
Han' Harcourt ) . If the house was to bo led
by two men win never communicated with
each other , the proceedings would neces
sarily be conducted with considerable diflt-
cully. [ Cries ofOh : Oh ! " and Shame : " )
When Mr. Gladstone rose to answer Mr.
Balfour hexas trembling with Indignation ,
and in a voice shaken with angci he thun
dered out : "With due regard to circum
stances and time. I have endeavored to serve
the house to the best of my ability. [ Ixiud
and prolonged cheers. ] The right honorable
member from Manchester would have shown
better taste , would better have fulfilled the
duties of the p.isitinn which he occupies , if
ho had spared the reference to my agreeable
occupation. ' '
Repeated cheers followed Mr. Gladstone's
words and amidst the enthusiasm of the
demonstration Mr. Balfour rose , unnoticed ,
to speak. He began three times before his
voice could be heard. Before he had sjioken
a dozen audible words the Irish members
drowned his voice airain with yelN , shouts of
"Oh 1" "Oh : " "Coward. " and -Withdraw. "
After several minutes of this bedlam
Thomas O'Connor , anti-Parncllite , rose , ai > -
parently to make a point of order. Mr.
Balfour yielded him the floor and the dis
order abated. Mr. O'Connor asked whether
or not any question was before the house.
The speaker replied that he understood
Mr. Balfour wished to explain.
Amid renewed confusion Mr. Balfour made
himself heard sufficiently to inform the house
that he had not intended to hurt the feelings
of iho prime minister , in fact , the right
honorable gentleman was the last person in
the houso'whom he willingly would offend.
This apology was received on all sides with
prolonged cheers , which turned to laughter
us Mr. Balfour added that the rlfilit honor-
.able , lo whose more agreeable occupation he
had referred , was not the prime minister ,
but ono of his colleugucn.

I INTOLX , Neb. , Feb. 10. [ Special to Tun

is on and many a legislator's hc.nl rents im-
easy on Us pillow tonight , through fear of
possible developments. The Investigation
that was inaugurated two days ago has
begun to bear fruit , and because of thu
revelations made in the house at n tan today ,
Just before the legislative recess of six days
was declared , that recess will have in It no
pleasure for someof the members , but on the
contrary the intervening days before the re
assembling of the twin bodies will be
fraught with anxiety and dread.

of consequences , and that failing Is
likely to cause that unlucky ofllcer
a great deal of uneasiness and certain mem
bers of the house an equal amount of trouble.
H lias set on foot an investigation that al
ready promises developments of the most
startling character , . and names that
have acquired a national prom
inence have been linked with transactions
of a questionable , not to say criminal ,
character. It has been openly charged that
boodle was used , and the use of thousands
more attempted to influence the votes of
certain members of the legislature , and the
house of representatives has set about dis
covering who the parties were who at

that the member from -f.anca.ster would
bring him water whenever it was necessary
for him to have a bracer of that kind.
lie was very much rattled during his ex
amination , but his manifest uneasiness was
not to be compared with that exhlDited by
certain members , whoso every move Indi
cated the desperation of the wild animal that ,
has been cornered , and on reaching the last
ditch turns back to give llnal battle to Its
pursuer.
The first indication of the approaching
storm was when Goss of Douglas called up
his resolution asking the scrgeant-at-anns to
appear at the bar of the house and explain
certain statements made by him in public to
the effect that he had an opportunity to
handle senatorial boodle money. There wan
no objection to the matter coming up. as It
had been allowed to go over from yesterday
with the understanding that it would betaken
taken up today , and a page was sjnt to
notify , the sorgeant-at-arms , who was in
another part of the building , that his pres
ence" was very much uesu-ed by the house.
Wami'l Very . \n\lmn to Tell.
When he appeared it was remarked that
he was very pale , and his appearance Indi
cated that he had slept very little , if at all ,
since the resolution was introduced. Ho
was asiccd to step to the front , and , after
attempting to make himself heard from the
floor , climbed to the platform behind thu
desk of the chief clerk. Ho again cleared
his throat , and , nerving himself with an ap
parent effort , said :
' I would like to take a little time and my
own course of reaching this. [ Louder ] I
say , ceullcinen , I would like to take my own
time and course of reacning this. ( C'rles

Some years ago I became so disgusted with
the lobby tnat ctianged the condition of
things so that Instead of allowing us to 1m
paid in the army when the paymaster came
around they only loaned 4U cents , on the
dollar a 40-cent dollar. That changed after
no siirned the bonded note , if you please ,
from our representatives in congress to pay
that. They came and told us to paj it back
in 100 cents on the dollar. This Is a lobby
done this and ever since I have had It in for
them. I believe that the lobby is legitimate.
I believe that it Is right if it is on the right
track , consequently I do not hesitate in the
least to use'those gentlemen Just as I used
to use the Johnnies. I have put my coat on
my ramrod and drew their tire , but I always
felt a Httlo Kid that there was a Johnn'lo
dead In front of me. and that a little de

think was right had l > een the cause of his

pity the poor rascals ; I pity the poor
scoundrels that may do the same thing now
that they have done before. I pity the man
that Is so low that will attempt to do the
same thing that these gentlemen attempt to
do. Consequently I iiity the page , the
youngest of them , that Is not able to

that every member and even n

good and would cull the youngest ,
