tlFS MOINRS. la.. April 12-The dead
lock In the Iowa legislature ended this
afternoon shortly before 1 o'clock, when
Judge William 8. Kenyon of Fort Dodge
was elected United States senator to suc
ceed the late Senator Jonathan P. Dolli
ver, following, perhaps, the hardest sen
atorial contest ever fought In Iowa. Tha
election came with the sixty-seventh bal
lot and was attended by tumultous scene,
In which Kenyon adherents displayed their
enthusiasm by tossing hooks and papers
about the legislative hall where the Joint
(.naslon of the senate and house was held.
The second ballot of the day brought
victory to Attorney Oeneral Wlckerxham's
assistant, when Senator Chapman of Ce
dar county and Representative Vancamp
of Adair, who had been consistent sup
porters of Supreme Court Justice Horace
E. Deemer, changed their votes. Then fol
lowed other changes In quick succession,
so that when the hallot wa-s finally counted
It stood S6 for Kenyon to 19 for Deemer,
and 51 for Claude R. Porter, democrat.
Kenyon Men Determined.
As the hour for the flint Joint ballot of
the day approached it waa evident that
a determined effort to end the deadlock
was to be made by friends of Judge Ken
yon. The gallerlea were thronged by
frienda of the candidates when the first
rol. call was announced. This resulted In
a vote of 76 for Kenyon, 28 for Deemer
and 61 for Porter.
Senator Saunders Immediately aked for
and obtained a second ballot. During the
count It was seen that no change had been
effected, and then It was that Senator
Chapman arose from his seat amid sup
pressed excitement and said that. In view
of the possibility of the legislature ad
journing with a deadlock on its hands, he
wtuld go over to the Kenyon aide. Rep
resentative Vancamp Immediately fol
lowed. His vote waa enough to elect.
Kenyon had "S votes, the required num
ber. No sooner had Van Camp uttered the
word "Kenyon" than the members broke
Into pandemonium, the Deemer men and
the democrats Joining in the deafening
Adams Starts Mnmpede.
It was Senator Adams of Fayette, who
on the sixty-sixth ballot changed his vote
from Deemer to Kenyon. thereby starting
a stampede In the latter's direction.
The balloting for l'nited States senator
began In the Iowa legislature on January
17, with Senator Lifayette Young, Gov
ernor Carroll's appointee: A. B. Funk,
Warren Garst, H. W. Byers and Judge
Kenyon In the raoe. Funk withdrew after
the nineteenth ballot, Garst continued un
til the twenty-third, while Ryers dropped
oU after the fifth. Young was succeeded
on the twenty-second ballot by Jjdge
It was Senator Adams of Fayette, how
ever, who really started legislators to the
I Kenyon standard
Just prior to the an-
nouncement of the first ballot he arose
, and ald wnlla ne dj(1 not llke to dw,ert
change his vote from Deemer to Kenyon.
The announcement was greeted with deaf
ening cheers and as the ballot progressed
Kenyon developed strength.
In qui. k succession the following Deemer
men changed to Kenyon: 'Stipe of Page
Bowman of IJnn, Christ of Clarke, Beans
'of Mahaska, tlllilland of Mills. Huntley of
J Lucas and Iounsberry of Marshall.
This gave Kenyon eighty-five votes and
! reduced the Deemer vote to nineteen,

(From a Staff- Correspondent.
LINCOLN. April 13--( Special. )-The ex
cessive generosity of the democratio ma
jority In the Thirty-second legislature will
probably necessitate a f.i-mlll levy to raise
enough money for all the appropriations.
The totsl amount called for In the thirty
three special bills and the four general
appropriations Is 41.filT.Mt.rT. The total
valuation of the state la not unite $t1S.flnO,nno
and g S-niill levy upon that for two years
would not raise enough by S.'id0.(ii0. There
are other sources of Income, however, from
fees and such things, which will bring ths
total up to a high enough figure to pro
vide thr funds necessary.
The total valuation will be found to have
raised In the last two years, but In spite
of that the 5 mills of JSin will probably be
Increased by at least one-half a mill, as
the university will be given 1 mill and the
Cronln bill for state aid for bridges re
quires one-fifth of a mill mora.

In accordance with the Quackenbush- '
Hardin bill, passed and approved at the
recent session of the legislature, which
provides for the appointment of three bar
risters by Gocerno Aldrich for the purpose
of recodifying the Nebraska statutes, -several
applications have already come In re
questing places on the commission. John
O. Yelsrr of Omaha Is one of the names
now before the- governor, and the others
are Judge Hand of Kearney and J. E.
Cobbey of Beatrice. The governor so far,
however, has mt Indicated what he would
do In the matter. The positions are worth
S.'!.O0O per year to the fortunate members
of the bar who happen to land the plums,
with sufficient stenographic aid to conduct
the work to the beet advantage.
Iloush Trading; Stamp Bill.
Whether or not the recently passed
Housh trading-stamp act will meet the
exigencies of the case Is provoking more
or less discussion among numerous retail
ers of the state. Some contend that the
concrrns now operating In Nebraska do
not fall within the provisions of the new
law as their headquarters and ostensible
places of business are outside the stste.
therefore not within the Jurisdiction of sny
measure passed to secure their regulation.
Several retail merchants, It Is understood,

concerns to continue doing l-UHiness n In
