There is no trace as to manner in which the entrance to house was effected, except that the k door was found to bo unlocked. A fact in connection with the af- r is that the house was robbed only a >rt tiruo ago under similai ciicum- tices. Dr. Kniffin was absent from the y at that time and the house was raa- ked, but the -burglars were never ight.

McGlory, another eastern salesman, had taken it by mistake for his own sample case, which it strongly resembled. Mr. Smith was greatly alaimed and spent a good deal of money in telegrams, trying to learn McGlory "s hereabouts. Before he had located him, however. McGlory had discovered his mistake and had shipped the valise back from Kansas City. When it reached Smith he found its valuable contents intact. Anxioim to Please the Legislators. S D Jan. Tho Legisla- ture will convene next Tuesday, and everybody is anxious that the members will be pleased, as their influence may decide the location of the permanent capital, which will Le voted on next November. Toe length of the session of the Legislatuie is mere conjecture. The constitution pti raits a session of sixty days. If a tithe of the work marked out by that instrument for the first Legislature is done it ivill requirt all the time legally allowed; The con- stitution provides that thirty-one laws, at least, must be passed. Bloodshed Feared at the JACKSOX, Miss.. Jan. It is not im- probable that a conflict may occur Janu- ary 6, the day on which will be held the election for city officers of Jackson.

Tho more conservative men of both sides, however, are endeavoring to bring about a better fpeling and are advising tem- perate utterances and deprecating acts not in every consistent with the law Murder Theory Exploded.

Chi- v.'-r" to -hfw no in the to ;n- ani I.-.-.- Sent ro, jn ivc THE WOOL TAKEFF. Coutlnutttion of the ArrotnenU the and Jan. The hearing ol the wool growers was continued day before the House Ways and Means Committee. Representative Carter, of Montana, opened the session with an ad- dress on behalf of the people of that State asking better protection for this industry. The passage of the Mills bill, or any such measure, he said, would drive every wool grower in his State out of the business; but with the neces- sary tariff the industry would bo de- eloped. Mr. Shepherd, of Texas, a wool grow- er, spoke of the ability of the home grower to supply the home market with Carpet and other wools. These wools, he said, with the necessary protection, could be produced in Texas and other Southern States as well as in the North and West; and tho Southern States alone could produce all the carpet wool used in this country. An address prepared by Mr. McDowell, of Pennsylvania, favoring a protective tariff on wool in all forms, was read. Hon. William Lawrence, of Ohio, who had boen selected by the national con- vention of wool growers to speak in their behalf, then began his address, lie said that no reason exists, if a protective tariff is maintained, why all wools used in the manufacture of woolen should not be produced in the United States, and the goods manufactured here. The carpet wools also, he saj-s, can and will, under a protective tariflj, bo supplied by the home producers. Mr. J. T. Rich, of Michigan, of the Merino Wool Association of that State, was next heard. He said that there had been a general and gradual failing of wool production in his State, and asked that no reduction in the tariff be made, but earnestly urged that steps be taken to prohibit tho frauds practiced in tho importation of the different grades of wool. Mr. Dobson, of Philadelphia, a carpet manufacturer, next addressed the com- mittee. He said that the wool interests of the country had been misrepresented. The production was not near enough to supply the demand, and he was wilkhtg to take his chance in free wool, but was tired of being tied down by the wool growers. William Whitman, president of tho National Association of Wool Manufac- turers, addressed committee on be- half of his association, which he said did not attempt to fix. the duties on raw wool, but was opposed to any increase and favored the present dutv. He asked for a slight increase on the manufac- tures of wool, so as to place the Ameri- can manufacturer on an equal footing1 with the foreigner. .NOT YET EVICTED, r Striking Refuse to Leave Their and trouble Will PuxxstiTA'H XEY. Pa., Jan. 4. None of tho miners have yet left their houses. SheriU Sutter called upon agent Quia- lisk and Grand Master Wilson yesterday and informed them that tho ten davs' notice had passed and intimated that to- day he would enforce the writs, and asked them to advise the men to get oat without trouble. They refused to do so Manager Haskell says the mines will opened Monday at all hazards The miners have sent out an appeal for aid and are being liberally assisted by the people of Punxsutawney. The Americans and more intelligent foreignois are making eflorts lo keep pcice and will leave the house.? without trouble. Some of the men have left the mines and secured work elsewhere. John Will Not JElope Again. WitKEsBAKKE, Pa., Jan. "Hanoc" Peter, who keeps a boarding house at Lewiston, is possessed of a fair wn'c who has numerous admirers among the boarders. "Poloc" John, one of them, induced tho woman to elopo to Shamokin The husband followed and caught thum and took the wife back to his home.

Doiiigs of Our Neighbors Other Ohio Cities. in SENATORIAL CONTEST. n I'uoonlirnu-d Kuiuor That Marqais Will be iu Lieutenant GoTeraor Governor Can- Coi.UMWi'5, Jan. 4. There is no ma- terial change in tho Senatorial situation, but a great amount of work is being done and the crowds are increasing in size. A feature of it is tho reported withdrawal of all candidates for Speaker with the exception of Hysell. This has given increased life to the Brice boom. Uysell is as the Speakership candidate of the Brice element in the Senatorial contest, although Brice his managers claim they have nothing do with it and have been steering clear of tho Speakorship fight. John A. McMahon, who is considered the third most prominent candidate, ar- rived at noon Friday, accompanied by quite a large following. Tho most im- portant rumor, which is as yet confined to select circles, is that the Democratio members of the Legislature since ing to the city have held a conference and concluded to seat Mr. Marquis for Lieutenant Governor over without delay and then bring out Gov- ernor Campbell as the chief opponent to Brice for tho Senate. This report lacks confirmation. FOR SOCIAL, PU1UTY. Members of a Feumle Minstrel Show Ar- rcsUMl and Fined at Steubenville. STEUBEXVII.LE, 0., Jan. 4.
