John Morley Mated "r ""
Office ind Herbert AniHli for
leJNDON, Dec 4. -The political crisis In
the United Kingdom reached climax to
day when Arthur J. Balfour, the premier,
formally tendered the realfnatlone of htm
relf and hl cabinet to Klnf Edward, who
accepted them. The majority ha Invited
Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman to an
Interview tomorrow, when he will offer
him the mission of forming- a new cahlnet.
Hir Henry will accept the task and within
a few daya, even within a few houra, a
new government will h formed.
A brief official announcement waa made
tonight that the cabinet had resigned, that
the king had accepted .the resignations of
hU mlniatera and that Blr Henry Campbell
Bannerman had been ent for. It would
now appear that the entire program has
been cut and dried for aome time and It
la even probable that the liberal leader has
already completed hie cabinet, though thla,
like anything else connected , with British
officialdom, must be left to aurmlse.
- Will Ignore Koaebrry.
It may be stated as-certain that Lord
Roaebery wil be entirely ignored In the
make up of' the cabinet, and that John
Morley will be one of the chlut adviser of
Sir Henry In drawing up the list of his
official family which will be presented
to hla ftiftJoBty. Mr. Slorley. himself. Is
considered Ukcly to go to the Indian office,
and It Is probable that Herbert Heajry
Asqiilth will be chancellor of the exchequer.
The foreign affulrs portfolio will go etthec
to Lord. Elgin or Sir Edward Grey, though
the latter Is considered likely to be made
, secretary for the colonies. The meeting
of the privy council, which was set for
tomorrow morning, has been postponed.
It Is understood that the king will leave
tomorrow, to be the guest at Lord Alllng
ton'a house party at Crlchcl, Wlmborn,
ln:l this in still Indefinite.
1.1st of Honor Issued.
A piirtiitl list of the honors usually con
iV.reo nn the retirement of the govern
ment was Issued tonight. It Includes a
leiigo for Blr Thomas Sanderson, the re-
liting und'.-r secretary of atate for foreign
uftutra, and a pumber of minor honors. It

- i.'ueial luuderg who are known to be op-
pused to home rule on the linos of the last
bills Introduced In Partuimenl. Since Ills
xnuech at Stirling,- which raised such a
furore, Bir Henry nas not made any
statement, but It la confidently asserted in
l liu liberal clubs that he Is ready with a
policy which will secure the adhesion of
Llio. nationalists and at the same time
avoid raising the issue as one of thf most
iuoiuln4.nl planks In his plutfurni.
Fatnre of Parliament.
There la some uncertainly as to when
1 1 io dissolution ot Parliament will be. t-f-icctlve.
but It Is not considered probable
until after the new year.

BADGER LEGISLATURE MEETS
(Governor LaFollette's Message Not
,- Ready and Adjournment Is
Taken I'nttl Today.
.YJADISON. Wis., Dec. 4. The legislature,
w l.kh has been called together for a special
neslon- by Governor ' Lafollette, met here
at I o'clock this afternoon, but beyond
organising nothing was accomplished.
The anxiously awaited message of the
governor was not ready , and an adjourn
ment was taken until 9:30 tomorrow, when
It is understood the nieaauge .will be re
ceived and read. I'p to tonight the gov
ernor had not made uny move showing
what plans he has for the future. There
are those who believe he will resign the
governorship nnd go to the United States
-enete, while others believe ho will notify
the legislature thai he does not care to go
to Washington and In the senatorial elec
tion that will then follow will try to obtain
the election of Isaac Stephonson of Martin-He.
What the message of the governor will
tontaln nobody knows with any degree of
certainty. It Is generally believed, how
ever, that his message will touch on the
rovUlon of the railroad, the tax and the
primary insurance luwa ot the state.

sent ot trie deletulsnts counsel, nnd that
many cases are so delayed that the wit
nesses scatter or die and Justice Is de
feated. It la the general practice of the courts
to give precedence to criminal cases over
civil cases, but thla practice does not pre
vail In this district. For many years In
dictments have been returned In the circuit
.ourt and the cases have been disposed
of tinder a special proviolon of the Reviled
Statutes fsectlon Co), which establishes six
terms annually of the circuit court for .hln
district exclusively for the trial and dispo
sition of criminal cases. By section 13.
Revised Statutes, these terms may be held
by the circuit Judge or by either of the
Judges of the southern district or by the
Judge of the 'eastern district of New York.
In point of fact these terms ore held, in-vr.-.
Uibl. by the' judge of thr eastern -jl's-trlct
of New Yprk, who. . by statute,, re.
Colves extra coniix.nnatlon for the perform-

The' work of Thf-" ch-cuif "co'OrY ua pre
vented the circuit Judge from presiding
at these criminal terms, and the two Judges
of . this -district regard the disposition of
the civil huuiness as preventing them from
presiding at these terms. The business of
the eastern district, which' has only one
Judge, has much increased and the judija
or Uiat district cuu no longer hold these
criminal terms for the southern district,

WASHINGTON, Dec. 4-tSpeclnl Tele
gram.) The scenes attendant upon the
opening of former congresses were
noticeable by their absence when the two
houses of the fifty-ninth congrcsa as
sembled at noon today. Flowers were
wholly lacking from the brilliancy which
marked other assemblages of a similar
character. The crowded galleries, largely
made up of splendidly gowned women,
gave the onlv suggestion of color to an
otherwise common-place picture. Senators
occupied their scats with little regard
for tn,Mr HCnnlng of a new congress.
They had. with one or two exceptions,
qualified before, at the extra-session called
0 confirm the president s cabinet and lo
do those things which, under the constl-
tutlon, wholly devolves upon the senate.
In the house, however, an entirely dlf-
ferent rcene was nlctured I'rjwards of
nem w.is piriurcn. I prn oi
eighty new men were to be sworn in and
the democratic minority was to be rele
gated to a atlll smaller space than it occu
pied In the preceding congress.
The senate took Just twenty-five minutes
to organise, appoint Its committees and
adjourn for the day. As for the house, It
was In continuous aesslon from noon until
8:i o'clock, during which time it elected
a speaker, qualified Its members, had a
tilt over the adoption of the rules and, by
Immemorial custom, indulged in the lottery
of selecting seats for the members.

Of the Nebraska delegation. Congressman
Hinshaw's name was the first out of the
box. He selected a seat next to Dalxell of
Pennsylvania, who, as one of the leaders
of ti e house, Was given permission to re
tain the seat he occupied In the Fifty
eighth congress. With the exception of
Klnkald, the Nebraskans were exception
ally fortunate, the bachelor from the Sixth
being compelled to take a seat In the
"Cherokee strip," the name given to a row
of seats far on the right of the speaker
and on the democratic side. But Klnkald
baa no reason to complain, for many of
the oldtlmera in the houae Crunvpacker,
Mann and ex-Governor Powers all fell
by the wayside and were forced to Join
the Nebraska .representative on the same
side. Congressman Kennedy was for
tunate in the choice of a scat. Although
on the democratic side, made necessary by
reason of the republican excess over - the
last congress, Mr. Kennedy woa privileged
to select a seat In the main body of the
house and within two rows of the leader
of the minority, John Sharp .Williams.

NEBRASKA WOMAN KILLS SELF
Jessie Johnson of Wymore nnd
Omabn Coramlta nlrlde In
ft. Lonls Hotel.
ST. LOC1S. Dec. 4.-Speclnl Tch grani.)
A well-dressed, handsome young woman,
registered ns Jessie Johnston. Omaha,. Neb.,
was found dead this afternoon In. her room
at the Jefferson hotel, with the gas turned
on and an almost drained bottle of chloro
form on a chair near her. That she had at
tempted suicide before Is Indicated by a
torn. Unsigned letter, dated December 3,
reading as follows:
Miss JcskIc Falrchlld, St. Joseph, Mo.
My Dear Jessie: Say. Girlie, Just a word
of farewell. It's a sure thing this time.
Clutched In the woman's hand was a note
signed Frank L. Johnstone, Newcastle,
Wyo., reading. "When you get old and can
not see, put on your glasses and look at
me." -In a wnstebasket near the bed were
a doien letters torn Into small pieces. Some
were from Newcastle, Wyo., some from
Edgemont, 8. D., some from Grand Island.
Neb., and some from Omaha. One of the
torn notes was nddressed to Misses Harriet
and Bethany Dawson. Presbyterian hos--pltal.
Omaha. A passenger's check put to
gether by the coroner showed that the
holder. Miss Jessie Johnston, has recently
traveled between Edgemont and Lincoln,
Neb., and that she was a trained nurse.
Jessie Johnson was ill In the Presby
l"t!.iii hospital In the latter part of Feb-rvit;-.
1H04. May 1 of the same year alio
."ll-d at the hospital for a position as
ti.:li:id nurse, and was kept there on pro
bation until May 21, when she waa rejected.
When she left she said she was going to
Chicago. Recently some of the nurses at
the hospital have received letters from her
at St. Louis. She was seen In Omaha about
two months ago and she said at the time
she was working In a hospital, but the au
thorities of the Presbyterian hospital say
they doubt this.
The hospital people understand that she
was married tn a switchman In South
Omaha named Gardner. Her real name la
Johnson, and her parents live In Wymore.

In the coming Joint conference- Is reliable.

Oregon Short Line to Extend Brunch
from St. Anthony. Idaho, to

CHICAGO, Dec. 4. Among the new Hues
to be built by the Harrlman system this
season, according to the Record-Herald,
will bo' an extension of the Oregon Short
Lino from St. (Anthony, Idaho, to the
Yellowstone National park, by way of
Marysvllle, a distance of seventy-four
miles. The St Anthony route was aban
doned years ago for the Moulda route Into
the park, necessitating a long stage ride
before the park la reached, and on this
account the Oregon Short Line has never
been ablo to compete with the Northern
Pacific for 'traffic to tho park. With, tho
completion of the St. Anthony line tho
Oregon Short Line will reach tho very
gates of the park, enabling the road to
abandon its stage line entirely.

WASHINGTON. Dec. 4.-The assembling
today of the members of the fifty-ninth
congress for their first session wa'e marked
by no unusual incidents, but it attracted
to the capitol crowds of spectator, who
took a lively Interest In the proceedings.
The day was perfect. The sun shone
brightly and the air waa keen. Society
waa out In force and filled tho reserved
galleries, while visitors unable to find seats
roamed the corridors to catch glimpses of
puhllc men. In the senate the proceedings
were brief, but most of the spectators
seemed to find quite as much to Interest
them in observing the senators who re
mained on tho floor after adjournment as
they could have experienced had the ses
sion continued longer.
The house was In session for more than
three hours, and while the proceedings
followed the program that has marked the
opening of congress for many years, there
was enough of Interest to hold an excep
tionally large audience during the entire
One noticeable feature waa the absence of
flowers, which heretofore have been com
mon to both chambers. On opening daya
the display had been so great that this
exhibition alone would have been BUfflclont
to draw great crowds, and the absence
of floral tributes, dye to a resolution
adopted unanimously by the senate and
to an order of the speaker in the house,
robbed the occasion of much of Its pic
turesqueness. During tho sessions senators and repre
sentatives visited the galleries and chatted
Senators Allison and Morgan were ap
pointed by Vice President Fairbanks as a
committee to notify the president that con
gress was ready for any communication
he desired to make. The senate waa In
session only twenty minutes. Senators
Aldrlch of Rhoade Island. Knox of Penn
sylvania, Warner of Missouri and Fraader
of Tennessee . took the oath of office and
an adjournment was taken as a mark of
respect to the late Senator Piatt of Con
Organisation of tha Honse. ' ' '
.Tbe'..prellmIay...stos ,to organisation
were taken by tho house. Joseph G. Can
non of Illinois was re-elected speaker, tho
members ot thd house took tbe oath of
office, the officers and floor employee of
the body were re-elected, the rulea of the
last congress were adopted and members .
went through the formality of drawing
for seats, all of which was enlivened by
the presence of crowds In the galleries, 1
the animation of. the reunion of veteran
members and interest of new ones.
In a brief speech against the adoption of
the rules the minority leader, Mr. Williams
of Missouri, touched on the Interest of the
country in tariff legislation and told of the
new republican "it?eas" which were being
"wafted to Washington on breeses from '
every part of the country." Theee, he
said, might be properly legislated for
should the "minority of the majority"
stand with the democratic members tn
opposing the adoption of the old rules and
forming new ones, which would permit
consideration of such legislation as popu
lar opinion might dictate.
A committee waa appointed to act with
tne senate committee In notifying Presi
dent Roosevelt that congress waa ready to
transact business, the rules committee and
the committee on mileage were appointed
and the house adjourned, after a session
which lasted three and a half hours, tu
compliance with resolutions announcing the
death of Senator Piatt of Connecticut and
Rcptescniutlve Marsh of Illinois.
House Called to Order.
For un hour preceding the opening ot
the Fifty-ninth congress there were scenes
of increutilng animation on the floor and
In the galleries of the house of representa
tives. Legislative veterans exchunged Coidiul
greetings and newly elected muinbera made
acquaintances. As early as 10 o'clock tho
galleries beeun to fill. Admission was by
card only and tho many who came to the
capitol unprovided thronged the corridors
in vain efforts to gain admission.
