Mr. Randall came to Washington last November a sick man, but with hopes of improvement He. expected to be able to take his seat in the house when congress met in December. But when congress convened he was unable to leave liis home. Subsequently the oath of office as a representative was- administered at. hia residence by Speaker Reed, and Mr. Randall was made a. member of the committee on rules and appropriations- the two important committees he had served on for so many years. Mr. Randall then hoped to be able to luke his seac and parti, ipate actively in the affairs of the house at the conclusion of are (lisp ayed at half mnst over sBvernI prominent clubs, iuoluding all the Democratic clubs, for Mr. Randall's death.

Providence, April 14.-The oity election for senator and eight representatives resulted in the election of all the Democrat ticket except one representative, by majorities ranging from 184 to 5!;a. This insures the election of Gov emor Davis and the Democratic general officers in grand committ e. The in-coiniiig legislature now stands: Democrats, 57; Republvcans, 50. This insures the election by at least two ma; jority in the grand committee of the Democratic state ticket, as follows: Governor, John W. Davis of Pawtucket; lieutena t governor, William T. C. Wardwell of Bristol; secret.iry of state, Edwin D. McGuinneas of Providence; attorney general, Ziba Q. Slocum of Gloucester; treasurer, John C. Perry of South Kingston. Saturday's half-holiday and pleasant ' weather brought out the full Democratic vote. The Republicans also polled a larger vote than at the regular election, but could not overcome the increased vote of their rivals. The. election of Governor Davis and bis colleagues will take place in the May session of .the general usseinbly at Newport. The ticket is the same as that elected in 1887, with the exception of Mr. Wardwell. The Australian ballot system worked smoothly, very few voters requiring instructions and all having ample time to prepare their vote.
