In the Legal House'
Tope K A, Kan., Feb. 27 Tomorrow
Kansas will have but one house of
representatives. The populists
after caucusing all day on the de
cision of the supreme court that
the republican house was the legal
house decided to take the step.
They will, however, demand that
the .house pass an 'appropriation
bill for the payment of the salaries
and per diem of the officers
and members of the populist house
up to date. The populists decided
also that no bills should be passed
excepting those necessary to keep
in motion the machinery of the
state and (that an adjournment is
to be reached as soon as possible.
The senate empowered their dec-
iton committee to inquire into the
election of Chief Justice Horton ot
the supreme court. The populists
say they believe Mr. Horton was
illegally declared to be elected in
1890 over the populist candidate.
MISER'S HIOOKX TKEASUKK.
Holly, Mich., Feb. 28. About $20,.
000 in cash belonging to the Fagin
misers, the two brothers who were
found frozen to death in their
house five miles north of here
Saturday, has been unearthed up
to today. Last night $15,000 had
been recovered, and this morning
a pot containing $5,000 in gold was
dug up in the celler. It is not
known to which brother belonged.
Another mystery was cleared up
today by the finding of a certificate
ofdesposit for $7,500. It was the
money received in the sale of John's
farm. The property belonging to
the Fagins already recovered and
accounted for amounts to $:t7,OX).
The old shanty where the brothers
lived is being torn down piece by

MANIAC IN THE I'ULl'IT.
West Union, la., Feb. 27. Kev. K.
Sanlord of the Methodist church at
Sumjicr, was seized with temporary
insanty while occupying the pulpit
Sunday, and for a time pendeinoni
um reigned. For five minutes he
was a raving maniac. He raved,
swore, threatened violence, smash
ed the bible over the pulpit, jumped
on it, cursing and calling down the
wrath of God all the while.
The audience was simply para
ly.ed, the people rinted to their
Mcntcs. A town official happened
to come in just at this time, went
foreward and took hold of Mr. San
ford, spoke a few words to him and
reason returned. He was taken
home, but in a critical condition
physically and mentally.
INAICI KAL AliDKLSS.
New Yokk, Feb. 27 St. Clair Mc
Klway, editor of the Hrooklyn
Kagle who has been several days at
Lakewood, and during that Jtime
had a conference with President
elect Cleveland, writes his paper as
follows: "Cleveland's inaugural
address as president of the United
States will contain 1,700 words and
will be more general than specific
in its character. Cleveland has
carefully written out what he de
sires to say but will speak at the in-
nigural without manuscript."
TOO VIVID A PICT LRU.
Fokt Doncii, la., Feb. 2'V Mrs.
William Wilbur of Kowan has been
adjudged insane and sent to the
asylum. The immediate cause of
her losing her mind was a graphic
picture of hell drawn in the pulpit
of her pastor. The preacher's dis
cription of the torments of the dam
ned made such a vivid impression
upon Mrs. Wilbur's mind that her
reason was overthrown and it is
feared that she is hopelessly insane.
WALSH TCk'NS DEMOC'KAT.
New Yokk, Feb. 27 A special
from Grand Forks, N. D., says that
George Walsh speaker of the house
of representatives, has renounced
the republican party and gone over
to the democrats. He declares the
senatorial contest at Hismarck
ought to end the existence of a re
publican party in the state.
Chihuahua, Mexico, Feb. 23.
There is great excitement throgh
out the Mate ofChihuahna over a
silver and gold strike reported
from the mining distrist of Hato
pilas. Thestrike was made on oneof
thr properties of Alexander K. Shep
herd, na "Hoss" Washington. 1). C.
Oneof the veins of silver rims $2,7lX)
to the ton, while another is gold of
the richest nature. One sample
which was about the size of a
pancake was tested and its value
estimated at $12. A primary strike
was made about one year ago, and
only lately the fabulous wealth
of the property has been revealed.
He Calls and Extra Session of
the Senate to Convene on
Whekeah, public interests require
that the senate should be convened
at 12 o'clock on the fourth day of
March, to receive the communica
tions as may be made by the ex
ecutive. Therefore, I, Henjamiu Harrison,
president of the United States, do
herby proclaim and declare that an
extraordinary occasion requires
the senate of the United States to
convene at the capital at Washing
ton on the fourth day of March
uext at 12 o'clock at noon, of which
all persons who shall at that time
be entitled to act as members of
that body are required to take no
tice. Given under my hand and the
seal of the United States at Wash
ington this twenty-fifth day of
February, in the year of our Lord,

ninety-three, and of the indepen

Willinm F. Wharton.
Acting Secretary of State.
This is the usual course pursued
at the outgoing of each administra
tion to enable the senate to "advise
and consent" to the cabinet selec
tions by the incoming president.
It is also customary at the same
session to send in the names of
those selected for the most impor
tant foreign posts and the leading
officers at home.
Cleveland's proclamation, issued
under similar conditions four years
ago, was dated February 20, and
the proclamation of today follows
that document closely. There was
some talk today, in connection with
the issuing of the proclamation,
about the question whether or not
a president had ever convened con
gress as a whole in special session
by proclamation issued just pre
vions to his retirement from office
An examination of the records
shows that this was never done

PERFORMS ROUTINE WORK
Chaplain Hall Informs the House
That Representative Ruggles

The following bills Came Up on
the reports of committees:
House roll, No. 315, by Oakley to
provide for the establishment and
management of private hospitals,
asylums or institutions for the
treatment and the custoday of the
insane, feeble-min Jed or inebria
tes, was recommended to pass
which report was adopted.
House roll No. 1(55, by McKesson
to provide for the encouragement
of the sugar beet industry and the
paying of a bounty to the growers
and producers of sugar beets, was
recommended to pass by the com
mittee. helton insisted that it was not a
proper bill, as soon as he could get
the lloor. and said several unim.
portaut things. He was followed by
Soderman with about the same
kind of a speech.
Kldcr wanted to see the bill go on
general tile and made an eloquent
appeal for the bill that evidently
caused the scales to fall from the
eyes of some of his radical breath-
Nason, who is one of the most un
tiring workers for Nebraska, dwelt
at some length upon the fairness of
the bill and concluded by saying
that Nebraska could be made the
great sugar producing center of
the world if the people would only
stand up for Nebraska and foster
her interests and industries.
iiorst came in in Ins usual way
and moved that the bill be indefini
tely postponed. Then he rose to a
point of order claiming that the
resolution passed on the 20th of
January while the republicans
were absent and it still remains
mystery as to wnetner a quorum
was present or not, barred any
further action upon the bill but the
speaker righteously sat down on
THE AMENDED CHARTER.
