SPRisoriELD, Ills., Jan. 20.—Weary,
careworn and red eyed were the poli
ticians who made up the excited throng
in the lobbies. Many had been up all
night, scheming and hustling in the
senatorial fight. Few had taken more
than a few hours' sleep. None of the
candidates have yet withdrawn. Some
are considering the move, however,
and are only waiting for the moment
when they can get into the camp of the
•ictor. If current gossip eould be ac«
wpted the whole question will be set
tled very soon. It is claimed by some
that tho victorious tide is toward Con
gressman Hitt. The managers of sev
eral of the less pretensious candidates
have admitted that they have been dis
cussing the advisability of going ov^r
with their forces to Hitt.

Long before the hour set for the
meeting of the joint assembly, the gal
leries were packed with visitors who
had come to hear the nominating
fcpecches. The first to take the floor
was Representative O'Donnell of
Bloomington. He placed in nomina
tion for United States senator, in be
half of the Democratic members, ex
Governor John P. Altgeld. O'Donnell
was frequently interrupted by ap
plause, but the concluding sentence of
his speech brought
both sides of the house and the gallery
as well. He had been reiterating
the virtues of the ex-governor, and in
conclusion said
"If the motives of men be known in
heaven, then the angels speak his name
sweetest accents."
Representative Blood, one of the
Populist membeis, seconded the name
of Altgeld.
A number of other addresses were
made in praise of Governor Altgeld.
The Republicans {refrained from speech
making, and also refrained from vot
ing, except that one vote was cast for
each of the Republican candidates.
Governor Altgeld received the full
Democratic vote. No quorum having
voted each house adjourned for the

WASHINGTON, Jan. 20.—The house
senate conferees on the immigra
tion bill are meeting with several
i knotty problems in their attempts to
settle the differences between the two
i houses. Chairman Bartholdt of the
I house committee is the most deter-
mined opponent of some of the most
stringent features of the proposed legis
lation. Mr. Bartholdt says that unless
the feature of the bill which makes the
educational test apply to both men and
women, aud which, he thinks, would,
if enforced, result in tlie separation of
families, is omitted, he will be com
pelled to oppose the bill in the house
He has proposed in conference to
amend the bill by exempting women
from that test. Another amendment
which he proposes is to require that the
immigrants shall be able to read aud
write the English or any other lan
guage instead of the English or their
own language.

The Spanish Gunboat Relampago
Sunk by the Cuban In
Commander and Others Killed.
Nearly All the Crew
Decision in the Thre« Friends
Case of Great Value to
HAVANA, Jan. 20. The gunboats
Centinela and Relampago left Manzan
illo on the night of Jan. 16 with the
object of going up the river Canto to
Fort Guamo, in compliance with the
orders of General Bosch. At 10 o'clock
jn the morning of Jan. 17 both gun
boats were near Mango Landing when
an explosion of a torpedo, which had
been well {placed in the river, sank the
Relampago. Those of the crew who
survived swam towaid shore, but were
fired on from the banks. At this criti
cal moment a boat was launched from
the Centinela and nearly all of the
crew still in the water were rescued.
In view of the instructions and tho
fact that the commander of the
Centiuela and nearly all of the crews of
both gunboats had been seriously
wounded, the expedition had to return
to Manzanillo. Six of the officers and
crew of the Relampago were killed out
right and all the rest received wounds
of more or less
severity. On the gun
boat Centinela the commander, Senor
Puerta, was seriously wounded and one
of the crew was killed.
When the gunboat struck the tor
pedo there was no time to lower a boat,
and almost before the extent of the dis
aster could be realized, the vessel went

injured jumped into the water and

As soon as it was seen that that the
Relampago was sinking, the Centinela's
boats were ordered away to assist in
the rescue of the crew of the former.
Tho relels appeared to be in strong
force along the banks of the river, and
when they saw the Spaniards in the
water, they directed a heavy rifle lire
upon them. The Centinela opened lire
upon the rebels, but as they could not
be seen, and their positions could only
be discovered by the smoke from their
guns, it was not believed that serious
losses were inflicted upon them.
When the Centinela's boats at
tempted to rescue the men struggling
in the water, the rebels fired upon
them, but the Spaniards bravely per
sisted in their work of rescue, until all
the men had been taken from the
Nearly every survivor of the Relam
pago's crew was wounded, and there
were only a few of the men belonging
to the Centinela who had not been hit
by the rebel bullets. The commander
of the Centiuela was so seriously
wounded that doubts are entertained of
his recovery.
Tho condition of the survivors was
such that it was impossile for the Cen
tinela to proceed to Guama and she
therefore returned to Manzanillo,
where the news of the disaster caused
intense excitement.
The official report of the affair states
that the commander, second engineer
and three sailors of the Relampago were
killed aud her boatswain, quarter*
master, chief engineer, pilot and four
sailors were wounded.
New Point Kaised by the DefeaM
Sustained by the Court
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jau. 20.—Judge
Locke of the United States court for
the Southern district of Florida has
rendered his decision in the Three
Friends case upon the exception cf the
defense to the libel of the government
for violating neutrality laws. The
point was raised by counsel for the de
fense that inasmuch as the Cuban in
surgents had not been recognized by
the United States government they
were neither a people nor a body poli
tic a«t defined by section 5298, under
which the libel was drawn. This was
sustained by Judge Locke, and tbe dis
trict attorney was given 10 days in
which to tile an amended libel. The
point was one that had never been
raised befora.
Should Judge Locke's decision bo
sustained by the court of last resort, it
would appear that every inhibition in
the act aguiust fitting out hostile expe
ditions of every character against a for
eign state with whom the United States
are at peace, becomes of no effect. The
question decided by Judge Locke,
therefore. of the highest importance,
as, if it is sustained, every act restrain
ing the fitting out of expeditions to aid
the Cuban insurgents in their struggle
against Spanish authority becomes in
