OHETENNE. Wyo, Jan. 17.-(8peciRl.)
Senator Warrcn,'s. followers scored a
lignal, victory In tho house of representa
tlvei"yesterday, when, catching the'dem
oorats napping, they brought about- an
adjournment for three days: Representa
tive Sullivan of Big Horn county stated
that tho speaker had asked for a list of
republican selections for the various com
mittees. He said that a caucus had been
held the night before- and that most of
the selections had been made, but the
list was still Incomplete. Mr. Sullivan
declined to take tho responsibility of
filling In the missing names himself and
suggested that an adjournment be taken
for three days In order that the speaker
might havo time to arrange his com
mittees. The motion appeared to be an
Innocent ono and it went through before
the democrats fully realized -Its import.
Then they saw light. Tho 'Wwomlnc
law requires that the election for senator
shall bo held on the 2Sth day of January.
If tho democrats do not succeed beforo
that date In ousting the republican repre
sentatives whose seats are contested, they
cannot defeat Senator Warren. The house
had adjourned without first appointing an
election commltteo to take up the con
tests and tho democrats had deprived
themselves of what, from their point of
view, must be throe T)f the most valuable
days of tho session. In their hurry to
adjourn tho representatives entirely over
looked the fact that It was tho date for
both houses to hear the governor's message.
Immfcdlacly after the adjournment ex
cited groups of politicians gathered in
the lobbies and discussed the situation.
