[Pkice: 15 Cents pee Week. THE SITD1T10H IK THE LEGISLATURE AT DES MOINES. Proceedings in Both Branches—Pairing in the House—Party Caucuses —A Review of the Situation— Legislative Gossip. Des Moines, Jan. 17.—Af ter the open ing of the house the following pairs were announced: Gardner (rep ) with Estes, and Smith with Beem. Estes is the first democratic member who has been unable to attend the session. All other members were present. The fifteenth roll call en temporary clerk was taken up and resulted in a vote of 48 to 48. In the house were many prominent politicians of both parties. It was expected that in conse quence of the action of the senatorial caucus last night, there would be a break in the democratic ranks, but up to 11:40, after fourteen ballots had been taken, it had not materialized There had been twenty-nine ballots in all. On motion of Luke, of Franklin, the house adjourned until 2:30. Both parties immediately went into caucus. This afternoon an ther pair was announced caused by the sickness of Eilers of Jones, on the democratic side. Brown of Ringold, paired with him. Immediately after the pair being announced, Dolbrook of Iowa, a democrat, moved an adjournment until to-morrow abl0:00 a. rn. to allow the conference committee time to work. The motion was lost and the thirtieth roll call was proceeded with. It resulted, Lehman, democrat, 47; Van Stenberg, republican, 47. Eight other ballots were taken, each resulting the same as the first, when Luke, of Franklin (republican), moved an adjournment. The aye and nay vote was called for and Wood, of the democrats, voted with the republicans for adjournment. Chairman Lane took the tally sheet from the reading clerk and read the vote to be a tie, but the t ally sheet of the tellers showed a vote of 40 to 48 for adjournment TUE SENATE. In the senate this morning a resolution was adopted authorizing the secretary of state to assign seats to reporters. Lieutenant Governor Hull announced as the committee on inauguration Senators Meservey, Ballingall and Dodge. Adjourned till 2 p rn. nextTuesday. A VIK W OF THS HOUSE. representatives mixed in with the opposite party, so that any scheme that may be tried ie sure to be found out and the information concerning it given at once to the opposite leader. The watch is very close. Besides this, members are constantly paroling the lobby to try to detect any weakness or attempt to spring a surprise worked up by the party leaders on the outside. When adjournment was taken at 11:40, it was with a feeling of relief that the members filed off to their respective caucuses. A DEMOCRATIC PROPOSITION. FI (wring ow Brown I we tho Deadlock --A Settlement Not Likely. Special to THI Hawk-Byi. Des Moines, Jan. 17.—The democrats this afternoon made the following proposition to the republicans, looking toward the settlement of the dead-lock. It provided that the present officers, who are republicans, be made regular temporary officers. That in the permanent organization the demo crate be given the speaker, the republicans the chief clerk, and the remainder of the offices be divided equally; that the democrats be given the chairmen of the committees on judiciary, suppresion of intemperance, appropriations and railroads. The republican caucus will act upon it in the morning, but no hopes are entertained of its acceptance. A talk with leading republicans tonight revealed that the proposition would be rejected promptly by the caucus in the morning. The democrats want too much and it appears their claims for a fair compromise are notably so. Both parties are determined to have the speakership, and as both are firm in their demands there is no prospect whatever for settlement. Senator Allison was a visitor on the floor of the house to-day and was warmly received by the republican members. THE CAUCUS DISCUSSED. <4antral Foaling That Republican Prospects are Brighter. Special to Thi Hawk-Kyts. Des Moines, Jan. 17.—The republican senatorial caucus was a great topic of discussion this morning. The republican members of the house and senate were feeling much better and considered the prospects much brighter with the senatorial question disposed of. So long as that remained unsettled the democrats had something to work on, but now the Republicans are all lined up on every question of importance, and their line considerably overshadows the democratic one. The felling among them is that now the senatorial question is clef initely settled by every member having in caucus expressed himself in favor of Allison there need be no fears of any- Nashua in a covered carriage and sent word by a friend to his fiance, who joined him at his hotel. A justice was summoned and the marriage was consummated. They took the evening train south, and a large concourse of admiring friends assembled at the depot to see them safely started on their journey. The father was dumbfounded when he heard of the wedding, but the verdict of the brothers is not known, for they returned to their homes, at some distance from Nashua, after their assault on Andrews, leaving word with the old gentleman to telephone them in the event of Andrews’ return. The mother’s sympathies are said to be with the daughter. DOUGHERTY’^ VICTIM DIES. The .Murderer Arrested at Haetle and Taken to Dee Moftaee. Des Moines, la., Jan. 17.—Joseph Dixon, the fourteen-year-old boy shot by Edward Dougherty, aged sixteen, at Hallie, last Friday, died yesterday, after lying in an unconscious state for several days. The Dougherty boy after romiDg about the country, stopping at farm houses for five days, returned Wednesday night to Hastie, where he was arrested, brought to this city at midnight and locked up in the county jail on a charge of murderous assault, *mch will not be changed to murder. Dougherty said he had been at Dexter. He protests his innocence, saying he did did not know the pistol was loaded. He told one person that he said to Dixon, “Suppose you were a millionaire and I a robber,” and pointed the pistol at him ana pulled the trigger, and that he was surprised when it went off. Dougherty is a tough character, and was only three months since released from the reform school, where he was sent for stealing whisky from a wholesale druggist of this city. USV* Bink to Triplets. Hamburg. la., Jan. 17.—A prominent local physician reports a case in which Mrs. William Miller, living three miles west of Hamburg, gave birth on Tuesday of this week to triplets, two girls and one boy, the combined weight of which was twenty-one pounds, all living and doing well. Twenty one months b afore the same woman gave birth to twins, making five children in less than two years. Combined with other abnormal complications it was a very interesting case, especially to the medical fraternity. Want $5,000 Damages. Keokuk, Jan. 17.—L. H. Ayer, administrator of the estate of Louis Barren, deceased, has instituted a suit against F A. Koechling for the recovery of alleged damages to the estate of the deceased through Burrell’s death, which resulted from a gunshot wound inflicted Decem- thing, and that the opposition, seeing ber IO by the defendant. The deceased a* Noted by “The bpeelal Correepon- I i/i* Hltu adon jelawk'Ky e’e ” lint, Hn'jiCiaJ to Tri* Hawk-Byv. <|Dk8 Moines, Jan. 17.—It had become apparent that there would be no change bu the house situation, so the majority of /the members came to the conclusion that it would be useless to remain here and try to do something when there was nothing that could be done. At the session yesterday Senator Woolson announced that the majority of the senators were in favor of adjourning over Sunday in order that they might go home and attend to business matters. The resolution authorizing the assignment of septa to reporters was quite unnecessary, as the secretary of the senate had already performed that duty. Your correspon dent can now be found either at senate desk No. 52 or house desk 102. The membership of the committee on inaug-| uration is well made up with Senator iMesewegar, chairman, and Dodge and yB&llingail as associate members. They will not have an easy time of it, howler, as Ballingall said only a short time * Tor adjournment:    “We    are into a n. bridle already We have to fight the old fogy notion of precedent that the cere mony must take place in the rotunda of tho capitol I want it to be held in some other more suitable place and will work hard for that. There is no use in sticking to one locali y forever, and as we want to make this a specially notable inauguration, we want to get it away from the old place.” There is no doubt that the democracy will try to make this inauguration the most splendid held here for a long time. W ith the senate out of the way now all interest will be settled in the house contest, which continues as stubbornly as ever Some hopes were entertained this morning that there would be some change in the situation, but the ballots taken proved the hope to be vain. According to custom the numbers of the two. parties met in their separate caucus rooms and a few minutes before ten filed back into the house chamber. The dead ock begins to show its effects upon the members. They do not come in smiling each morning eager for the fray as at first, but appear with a bored yet determined expression countenance It is getting tiresome and some members influenced by mere ennui will finally break ranks and help organize affairs Said Representative Russell, democrat, this morning: “I would like to get hold of some good honest republican who wants to get a man in for assistant clerk. I would vote for his candidate all the way through and give him a permanent job. That’s the way I like to help man to office. All we demo crate want is to get a democratic temporary speaker in the chair so that we can do a little something in the way of organization. He need not hold the position any great leangth of time, and after he is there we can appoint a committee of two democrats and two republicans. then shake up in a box the names of five republicans and five democrats and have one name drawn, and the man designated shall be the fifth member of a committee to decide who shall be speaker. This method will bring abaut a ready solution of the deadlock.” Re presentative 8hipley, republican, said in reply to this:    ‘    That seems fair enough, but they won’t do it.” That just about expresses the situation. Neither party wants to give in now as the strug gle has proceeded as far as it has. There is no use trying to speculate on how long it will continue, as there is nothing in the actions or votes of the members to indicate any change. Although the pro ceedings in the house this morning were of a very monotonous character there were a large nuber of visitors both on the floor and in the galleries. Public in terest is all centered in the strange spec tacle of men working so desperately and with so much determination for party supremacy. People come here and sit through the entire monotonous session paying close attention and expecting on every roll call to hear a change and have some result brougt about. But all are the bold front put on, will have to weaken ere long. Some of the expressions of opinion were about »s follows: Representative Chase, republican—I think the democrats appear as if an eve was knocked out this morning. That unanimous vote iast night will help us greatly to organize the nouse. Representative Richman, democrat— You know as well as I do that there was undoubtedly some opposition to Allison, but there was so little that the few members did not care to show it. I hope the house will soon get organized and get to work. Senator Davidson, republican—That was a grand endorsement and one of which any man would be proud. The democrats had hoped that by delay opposition could be brought out, but now as the matter is finally settled they can do nothing and we hope soon to see the house organized. Representative Luke, republican—We hope the action of last night will aid us in organizing the house, but can tell better as we see things open up this morning. Representative Thornburg, republican The action last night completely knocks the wind out of the democrats. Heveral of them have said to me: “Well, it looks like you fellows will organize the house yet.” Senator Gobble, democrat—The result last night was as I expected it would be and is perfectly satisfactory to me. What was most surprising about it was the unanimity with which the nomination was given. The republicans are to have the senator anyhow, and Allison is about as good a man as they could put in the p7ace. Representative Russell, democrat—The result was just as I expected it would be. That speech of Allison’s was all put on, however. Allison has become such an adept at speech-making and acting that he can readily adapt himself to any oc casten. There is no doubt in every county in the state an abler republican than Allison, but he has got a hold upon his place and will keep it. St nator Brown, Republican—The caucus iast night did a very wise and peaceful thing in nominating Senator Allison as they did Undoubtedly this action will greatly influence the organization of the house and help to settle the difficulty. It was a fine compliment to Senator Allison. Senator Finn, Republican—The action of the caucus was all that could have been expected. There was no opposition. It may have no influence upon the house, for the democrats may say that now Allison is nominated, the republicans will have to give in to organize the house and elect him The general conclusion would be that the republicans are jubilant and hopeful, while the democrats do not look very kindly or favorably upon the action of last night. ______ left a wifa and six children, and his estate is alleged to be damaged in the sum of $5,000.  _ McrtgaxH Declared Void. Fort Madison, Jan. 17.—It will be remembered that J. H Schwartz, of Fort Madison, failed a few years ago with his stock mortgaged up to the eyes in favor the mother and other relatives of Scwartz The United States court has just declared the mortgages void and decided in favor of the claims of the creditors on the stock. Hon. John W. Noble, secretary of the interior, was one of the attorneys for the creditors. Tile River at Davenport Special to Th* Hawk-Eye. Davenport, Jan 17.—The river was almost closed here last evening but today is wide open again and running with broken ice All immediate fear of a water famine is over as the rise has carried the gauge more than a foot above low water mark. Icemen here are pre paring to ship in their stock for the com ing season from the north. A Union Depot Project. Des Moines, Jan. 17.—It is announced that all the railroads entering this city have agreed to unite and build a union depot. It is understood that it will bs located south of the court house and ex tend from Fifth to Sixth streets. Fourteen railroads will run trains into this union depot_ May Bronk tho Deadlock. Cedar Rapids Jan. 17.—A dispatch says that Frank Morrison, son of Dr Morrison of Traer, a democratic member of the legislature, is very ill of la grippe, and the latter has been sent for. This may break the deadlock. IOWA BRIEFS.

McCausland, his vie tim, has recovered. LOVE LAUGHS AT LASHES. A knitting factory is one of the possi bilities of future location at Fort Madison. C M. Cunsell was found dead in his bed at Farley Thursday morning. He lived alone. Sixty volumes of choice books have been added to the library in the state horticultural rooms at Des Moines during the past few days. Some of the new books are very rare and are a very valuable addition t© the library. The Davenport water company will extend its supply pipe to the channel of the river. It will terminate in an elbow which will turn it down streak a few feet so that all the direct drift of objectionable matter into the inlet will be avoided. The expense of the improvement will-cost $10,000. There are now three different parties figuring on the Oskaloosa street railway matter, and the ordinance granting the franchise will be passed by the council next Monday night. The city needs this improvement and will soon enj oy it. The Jenkins Hay Rake and Stacker company, the first manufactory secured by Fort Madison’s recently organized citizens’ association, will soon begin op erations. The following officers have been elected: President, J. B. Morrison; vice president, R. L. Gibson; secretary, Charles H. Peters; treasurer, W. J. McCray: superintendent, M. R. Jenkins. ADELINA PATTI DEFAMED. for Mexican Editor Bant to Jolt Saying Hank Thin ga of Hor. City of Mexico, Jan. 17.—The El Progres8o, a newspaper published in this city, recently published articles defamatory of Madame Adelina Patti, who is creating such a seustUon here. An immediate suit was brought and the editor sent to jail. The affair has created much indignation among the many warm ad I mirers of the fair diva. Washington, Jan. 17.—In the house McKinley called up his motion to table the motion to reconsider the vote by which the house yesterday refused to substitute the resolutions reported by the committee on rules (as amended by the adoption of the Cannon resolution) for the original resolution referred to the committee.    ^ The motion to table the motion to reconsider was agreed to—yeas, 144; nays, 142. The question then recurred on the adoption of the original resolution, as follows: Resolved, That a select committee of nine members, to be called the “world’s fair committee,” shall be appointed by the speaker, to which shall be referred all matters relating to the proposed celebration of the four hundredth anniversary of th*e discovery of America, or the world’s fair of 1892. The resolution was adopted, yeas, 141; nays, 136. Mr. Springer, of Illinois, changed his vote from the negative to the affirmative, in order to enter a motion to reconsider. Springer said he only desired that the committee should be instructed to report next week to the house a plan by which the location might be selected. As it now stood the committee would be authorized to select the location. He withdrew his motion to reconsider, stating that he would trust to the fairness of the committee and of the house. Mr. Flower, of New York, introduced New York’s world’s fair bill, and it will be refered to the special committee when appointed. Mr. Hines, of New York, offered a resolution increasing the membership of that committee from nine to thirteen. Referred to the committee on rules. Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio, introduced a bill granting pensions to ex-soldiers and sailors incapaciated for the performance of manual labor. Referred Mr. Mills, of Texas, introduced a bill to extend trade and commerce of the United States, and to provide for full reciprocity between the United States and Mexico. Referred. The house then went into committee of the whole on the bill to provide for town site entries in Oklahoma. The first section of the bill authorizes the secretary of the interior to appoint three commissioners for ench portion of public lands settled upon and occupied as a town site (co more than two of whom shall be members of the same political organization), whose duty it shall be whenever called on by any occupants of such town site and money for the en try of such town site is furnished, to enter at the proper land office at a mini mum price, the land so settled and occupied not exceeding one-half section for each town site, in trust for the several use and benefit of the occupants thereof, according to their respective interests. Mr Baker, of New York, offered an amendment providing for the appoint-(inatead of an indefinate number of committees) of four boards to consist of three committees each, throe boards for eastern and one for western land dis tricts. Mr. Perkins believed at least five boards should be provided for. Mr. Pickier, of South Dakota, doubted whether five boards would be enough. Mr. Payson, of Illinois, while he was in favor of having the question settled, said the people in the town of Oklahoma ought to come to some sort of arrangement which would greatly reduce the work of the committee. While he would err on the side of generosity, he did not think that the house should be prodigal. Mr. Holman, of Indiana, offered a sub stitute for the first section devolving upon the local land officers (under rules and regulations prescribed by the secre tary of the interior), duties proposed to ae performed by the commissioners. Mr. Baker modified the amendment so as not to provide for the appointment of not more than five boards, to consist of three commissioners each; and as modified it was agreed to. Holman’s substitute was rejected. The second section of the bill authorizes the commissioners to do whatever may be necessary to execute in good faith and justice the provisions of this act. Section three authorizes the secretary of the interior to prescribe the rules and regulations to govern the commissioners and to make it the duty of the commissioners to determine all controversies arising between claimants. Mr. Culbertson moved an amendment providing the claim of any person, for any town site or lot [ shall be deemed invalid if such person entered the ter ritory or took possession of a town site or lot in advance of the date fixed by the president’s proclamation. Mr. Tarsney offered a substitute for this amendment providing when it shall be shown by satisfactory evidence the claimant was at noon on the 22 of April, 1889, a United States marshal, deputy marshal, or United States officer or agent, or was, prior to that date, in Ok ohoma representing himself to be such officer; or if it is shown the claimant en tered the territory in violation of the president’s proclamation such claimant shall not have a right to prove up or purchase any town site or lot. Pending action, the committee rose and the house adjourned until one 0’clack to-morrow, enabling the members to attend the funeral of Walker Blaine. ler and Springer. The result of the I contest is that a special committee of nine members will be appointed to be called a “world's fair committee.” It may choose a site if it seems fit, but it is more probable that the determination of that question wilt be relegated to the house. At the special meeting of the senate I committee on territories to day, Chairman Platt was instructed to report, recommending the passage of bills to I make a state of Wyoming and to organize a territorial form of government for Oklahoma. The committee decided, inasmuch as there is a case now pending before the supreme court involving the! constitutionality of such a test oath as is I required by the constitution, adopted by the people of Idaho, affecting the Mormons, the bill for the admission of Idaho as a state should not be acted upon defiritely until the supreme court rules I upon the question Representative Morse, of Massachusetts, addressed the house committee on I commerce to-day in advocacy of his bills, one for the entire repeal of the interstate commerce law and the other for the I repeal of the long and short haul and anti-pooling sections. At the cabinet meeting to day Secretary Windom submitted a draft of the bill prepared by himself in regard to the coinage of silver, and it received the ap-1 proval of the president and most of the! members. The bill will probably be introduced in the house by Conger, of Iowa on Monday, FATAL CRASH. A CHICAGO VESTIBULE THAIN DASHES INTO AN ACCOMMODATION. ber of People Killed Out right and a Number Seriously Wounded —The Wreck Takes Fire-Other Accidents. SECRETARY BLAINE VERY ILL. Filii ast He Will Never Get Over tne Lou of His Favorite Sob. Washington, Jan. 17.—The condition of Secretary Blaine is exciting the apprehension of his friends, who fear that he will never recover from the blow caused by the loss of his son Walker. The secretary has proxysms of grief and it is with great difficulty that he can restrain himself. For the last few years Walker has been so invaluable to him that his death leaves the secretary almost distracted. Mr. Blaine was not a man who attended to details, and these he had been in the habit of leaving entirely to Walker, who had in his hands all the loose ends of his father’s business and knew just what was going on and what matters the secretary desired to c msider and take up. There is nobody now to take his place, as Emmons is in business and James G , Jr., is not settled enough to be trusted with important business of any kind. _ INVESTIGATING THS FORGERIES. Ex-Governor Forester Tells the Committee Whet He Knows A boat Them. Washington, D. D,, Jan. 17.—The committee investigating the Ohio bollot box forgery cases held a session this morning and heard further statements from ex-Governor Foraker. He con sumed the entire morning reading letters and telegrams which passed between himself and Woods and the other parties relative to the ballot boxes and the bill affecting it in congress. The bulk of letters which were received by him from Woods were to urge him (Foraker) to press the appointment of Woods for smoke inspector at Cincinnati in return for the alleged facts given Foraker by Woods with reference to the ballot box matter. Mr Foraker testified that he had been informed that Woods’ character was bad, but that Woods in answer to his inquiries on the subject stated that the reports grew out of the fact that he had once been arrested and fined, but that the arrest was because of his attack on a nun who had insulted his wife, and he (Woods) plead guilty and received a fine of $5 OOO. Mr. Foraker testified that he obtained from Woods a sample ballot-box, which he exhibited during some of his speeches in Ohio and which was the one referred to by the bill supported by Campbell in Congress. Mr. Foraker testified that he had not furnished Woods any money as an equivalent for his information or for any other purpose. The committee then adjourned until to morrow, when Mr. For aker’a hearing will be resumed. Cincinnati, Jan. 17.—At 7:10 this evening aa the Glendale accommodation bound for Cincinnati was leaving the station near College Hill Junction, a Chicago vestibnled train ran into the rear of the accommodation. There were three passenger cars on the Glendale train, containing about seventy-five people. The locomotive of the Chicago vesti-buled train ran half-way through the rear car of the accommodation, piling the passenger cars in a heap and setting them on fire. At the present writing four persons have been taken out dead from the wreck. The wounded are now on their way to this city, where they will be taken to the hospital. The number of fatalities and injuries, considering the completeness of the wreck and the number of passengers, is reported to be comparatively small. Several of the persons rescued are fatally wounded. Bob Stevenson, the baggage master of the vestibuled train, is badly hurt and died shortly after being placed in a patrol wagon. The body of John Wilson, superintendent of the Metropolitan Life Insurance company, Cincinnati has been identified as one of those who were barned up. The engineer of the vestibuled train is seriously injured. THE DEAD AND INJURED Superintendent Nelson, who. arrived in this city from the secene of the wreck at midnight says John Wilson, of Cm cinnati, Conductor F. W. Witherbee and an unknown woman were the only ones killed outright. James Staley, the bag gage master, who was terribly burned, and William Klamitz, a passenger, have died at the hospital since being brought to the city, making the number of fatalities five. The engineer and fire man of No. 31 were terribly injured, as was also a boy (name unknown) from Carthage. They are in the hospital. It is claimed that no other persons were seriously hurt._ In,} ared la a Collision St. Joseph, Mo..

Chicago, Jan. 17 —At a meeting of the western freight association today it was agreed to confine the cut in cattle rates to shipments from Kansas City and intermediate points. The Omaha roads decided to maintain the 25 cent rate from Omaha to Chicago, and to preserve the present standard of rates in Iowa. This seems to be a violation of the provision of the interstate commerce law wh ch prohibits discrimination against traders. The arrangement will compel Omaha shippers to pay double the amount charged Kansas City shippers for the same service. A committee of ten was appointed to adjust intermediate rates between Kansas City and Chicago on a basis of the twelve and one-half cent rate. A millionaire dead.

English flags have been bought and publicly burned in several towns. WANT A MORE CONCILIATORY POIJCY. Lisbon, Jan. 17.— English residents in this city who have been victims of the public animosity occasioned by the attitude of Bogland toward Portugal, propose to appoint a deputation to wait on Lord Salisbury to urge that Great Britain adopt a more conciliatory policy. The feeling toward England is very bitter. Many English employes of Portuguese houses have been discharged. Several of the leasing English commercial houses of this city and Oporto are preparing a protest against the English ultimatum. liny regard the dispatch of British men-of war to Portuguese waters as harmful to their Puniness. SALISBURY SPOILS THINGS London, Jad. 17.—The Portuguese correspondence has been published in the blue book.
