place and will work hard for There is no use in slick ing to one locali y and as we want to make this a specially notable in we want to get it away from the old There is no doubt that tho democracy will try tc make this in aucuration the most splendid held here for a long With the senate out of the way now all interest will be settled in the house which continues as stubbornly as Home hopes wore entertained this morning that there would be Rome change in the but the ballots taken proved the hope to be According to custom the members nf the par ties met in their separate caucus rooms and a few

appoint a com mittee of two democrats and two repub then shake up in a bos the names of five republicans and five democrats and have one name and the man designated shall be tho fifth member of a committee to decide who shall be This method will bring abaut a ready solution of the Re presentative said in reply to this That seems fair but they wont do That just about expresses the Neither party
