two parties would get together and formulate an agreement for a Nothing has been done in that The respec tive committees are awaiting caucus or and before long will get at the work All the irrespective of are tired of the deadlock and are anxious that something may be done o set them really at A on entering the senate is apt to be a little alarmed at he large yellow cards hung at the sides of the secretarys desk and the presi dents The first thought suggested is and surmises are made as to why the state doesnt provide some means of ridding the senate cham ber of danger from this dread dig But a closer inspection reveals hat the cards are perfectly harmless They are merely notices that the general rablic shall observe that the is n charge of that part of the house and anyone desiring anything therefrom must go to the proper source of inform ation for what is A little flurry was created in the re porters gallery inthe senate by the passage of the resolution granting them tationery to the amount of 1 per t is a wellknown fact that there are more reporters around than there are eats and a number who have not seats are laboring under the delusion that they oust have a place assigned them in order o draw As a consequence the outs of that opinion wanted a re assignment yesterday and made things ively for a little while after the adjourn ment of the No change will be and we will be found jefore at seat The advantages of the pairing agree ment which was talked of so plainly yes erday cannot be overestimated by the members of either It is not at all likely that Holbrook in his first psech really meant that the agreement n this regard should be set and us subsequent explanation of his poai ion in this regard was very much in f a rcr of continuing the arranzement until all hope of a compromise had been dissi The agreement originally cov red only cases of sickness of members r their but it has not by ixpress but by been ixtended to covered almost every case of for lolbrook was not there on he had nade no pair on going home to mt the committee looked the mat er and he was put on the list with a re mblican Undoubtedly there been numerous cases similar to this ne where a pair really was not et they have been and in dvantage taken of It is safe o say that neither party has any great esire to go back on an agreement which as so much good in it as this pairing and so long as the majcri of the house favors keeping it up aere will be no action taken toward re cinding The pioneer lawmakers drop in every nee in a while to see how things are oing on among the legislators of mod rn They dont like to see EO rach standing and say that when ley have their meeting here the latter art of the month they will have some ling to Ray about the methods of work which may start the wheels of the twen ythird general and if they are started the motion will be accelerated y the impulse On account of the fact that a number f tha reporter had no the custo ian

side be appointed to ascertain what mem era of the house would be willing to pen the sessions with prayer without prepare a roll of such members and have the same placed in le hands of the who shall

After this diversion the roll call on ermanent speaker began again with the It resulted in a as all lie the vote standing Hamilton Wilson Only one more ballot was aken and then the house adjourned un

and the investigation com mittees were of great As there is nothing of importance to investi gate this time the committee on repre sentative districts wffl be the bone of contention aad the democrats will work or that very During the day and evening the committees having the matter in charge were expected to be at and the sessions of the caucuses in the morning will have considerable weight in deUirming the time when the deadlock will break and the compromise bs All the memberi lay it can not IOWA Dnwcntt Ctata u WU1 IToct DEB dem ocrats aaim that Governor Boies wiH be inaugurated Thursday of next and say the deadlock will be broken before the end of this There is no linger eo much talk on either side about hang ing out all summer and the expressions Df a desire for a compromise have come quite frequently from both sides during tha last few There have been factions in the caucuses of both parties that have advised this for some but other factions have opposed The latter factions have now concluded that the deadlock has lasted long enough to convince the state that both parties are in and the hint dropped by Holbrook today in regard to declaring all pairs off and going in for a fight to the death has convinced many that the fight hap better be even if a compromise was So it seems that a break in the deadlock may reascably be upected in a few days and it is believed that the republicans will obtain the This plan may all be by a dis over some minor but such a result is hardly In regard to the committee on the sup pression of intemperance the democrats will not object seriously to the republi cans having control of as they do not apprehend that any important legislation upon that subject will come up this ses Consequently they will probably concede almost anything in the line of committees except that on apportion It seems quite probable that some such compromise as this will be agreed and in a few ELOPJS D WITH A Join Beanie aad FOKBUJB at Bock Special to THE
