Later in the day he was seen by the opponents of Senator Hanna and last night he gave out the following: "It is due to the public and to myself that I make a statement of my position on the senatorial matter. While it is true that the convention which nominated me passed a resolution requesting me to support Senator Hanna, and while at various times during the campaign nd ?ince declared my intention to fol- jw that request, and even promised a ozen or more of my constituents in •lanna's headquarters on Monday of his week that I would do so, I have, owever, since learning the particulars .f the indignities heaped upon my wife Monday morning, reached the convic- ion that I would be untrue to my nanhood should I cast my vote for a nan who either uses or employs such methods," etc., etc. Say That Griffith Is rulsifyine- The men referred to as having offered Mrs. Griffith indignities are Mr. McPeck an old friend of Griffith; Mr. Chapman, and Jerry P. Bliss. These Republicans were with Griffith and his wife together, and apart at different imes during the night of consultation, ccording to a statement made by McPeck, which winds up as follows: "Mr. hapman and myself have been very varra political as well as personal friends of Griffith; and if any indignities had been offered to Mrs. Griffith by any peeson while she was.in our presence we would have resented it. It is not reasonable to suppose that Senator Hanna or any of his friends would offer any indignity to any lady, especially the wife of a member who had promised to vote for Hanna for United States senator and whose vote at that time, as he had through the entire campaign, fully expected to receive."

"I have no vote in the legislature," he said. Continuing, Governor Bushnell said: , "I discharged my duty last spring when I appointed Mr. Hanna United States senator. Now the members of the legislature must discharge theirs," From the governor's office the delegation marched to Senator Hanna's headquarters in the Xeiil House, where the mem- bei-H greeted the senator. Addresses were made, reviewing the action of the Toli'do convention. — T!ie resolutions adopttfl by the state convention that nominated Bushnell for governor say this: "The thanks of the people of this state are due to Senators Foraker and Hanna for their splendid efforts during the present session of congress and we congratulate the people on their representation in the United States senate.

BLOW TO PURCHASING AGENTS. Rock Island and Alton Railroads Shut Them Out of Trains. Chicago, Jan. 5.—So far as the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific and Chicago and Alton is concerned _the busK ne:;s of the purchasing agent'for small towns near Chicago is gone. Orders were issued from the offices of the two railroads informing these purchasing agents that they would not be permits ted to use the trains of-either company.

AN 4.STONJSHING ARBITRATOR. Board a Train and Rob the Express Car Before It Has Passed ihe Ciry Limit*— A2AR Messenger Bound and Gagged »od Safe I/ooted of an CnUiiovru Sum. Official*, However, Saying That th« Swa« IVas Sot at All Large. Kansas City, Jan. 5. — After about three months of inactivity Kansas City's; train robbers scored another brilliant achievement last night This time the Kansas City, Pittsburg and Gulf road is tne sufferer. The company's Port Arthur express, which left the company's ;>tation here at 6:40 last nigiit, was robbed before it had passed beyond the city limits. Two men, .*hom no one but the express messenger seems to have seen, climbed into the express car as the train left the station. They overpowered the messenger, bound and gagged him, and riiled the car before the train came to a stop. When the train slowed up at a railroad crossing known as Air Une <Junction, near the southeastern limits of the city, they climbed out of the car and disappeared. Nothing was known of the< robbery until a negro train porter entered the car arid found the helpless express messenger. At this writing nothing is known as to the amount of booty secured. BoVbert Rifled the Local Safe. \fter the train had been stopped and others of the crew had come forward and-released the express messenger. It was found that the robbers had rifled the local safe, taking from it everything 0!! value. They had made no effort to disturb the through safe, which is protected by a time lock. From Air Line Junction a telegraphic report of the robbery was sent to the city and the train proceeded south. The Wells- Fargo company controls the express to JHJR Sympathies. ; Jan. 5-—The cause of arbitration in the settlement of claim* %'tween nations has received a severo cWk in the award by'the arbitrator in the case of Oberlander and Messenger, who-claimed J50.000 and $25,000 respectively, for ill treatment by theMe*- ican authorities. The arbitrator •*»• the \rgenline minister at Madrid, Senor Quesada, rind liiis decision was in favor of the Mexican government and against the American claimants. Tn« discouraging- feature of the decision i» that in making the same the arbitrator apparently overlooked every point of law. according to the English standards, and decided the case with reference to his sympathies. It is sala that a more extraordinary opinion than this from a legal point of view was never seen at the state department. Oberlander was a deputy sheriff in California, and he was kidnapped ana taken across the border by Mexlcanoffl- rers. Mrs. Messenger, in whose houte lie had taken refuge, was ill treated. When it came to rendering .his de» rision. the arbitrator, it Is said, ignored the facts and reasoned that because tho United States government had not recognized the rights of the Chinese Bov- ,'rnment to indemnity lor the killing ot Chinese at Rock Springs, Wyo., whil* insisting upon indemnity for losses «UB-, talned by American missionaries in China we could not expect to have an Indemnity awarded our citizens in such. this. This peculiar lack of legal cases as . perception Is said at the department to be almost 'without a parallel In th« histo it;: business. This is said to be true of the business between Chicago and Joliet, where there are a dozen or more purchasing agents who earn a snug income by mak- \ns a house-to-house canvass twice or three times a week, and then coming to Chicago and making the purchases which the housewives need. The order will also mean a. serious loss to a number of Chicago merchants, for the purchasing agents buy thousands of dollars' worth of goods in this city every month. W. H. Truesdale, vice president aiid general manager of the Rock Island, said that the Order wag simply a matter of living up to the contracts be- Uveen the railroad and the express corn- business on the road, hen: C. R. Teas, Pittsburg the local and Gulf office manager, . stated that there was not much of value L the local safe and that $200 \r $300 would probably cover the company s loss.

Sprinirfii-lrt Delegation Visits Him—Besolu- tinn of the Stat* Convention. Columbus, O., Jan. 5,—Probably the rao?t interesting feature of the doings yesterday was the visit of a large delegation of Republicans from Springfield to Governor Bushnell. Representative \Veaver. the .spokesman of the delegation, in addressing the sovernor.said: "'I nad the honor to present your name at the Toledo convention, and am proud of .t. Circumstances hstve arisen which have changed the current of a.ffairs. Certain persons who claim to be Republicans are endeavoring to thwurc ?,ir. Hanna's candidacy, but we cannot believe that you are one of these, that you are unlo^tl-. For you to do this would be a political blunder, if not a political crime. Hence we call to ask if you have done what is charged aigainst you." Governor Bushnell, in his response, referred to .the fact that the representatives and senators from Clarke county are strong adherents of Hamia, while but three-fourths of theCtiyahfl'ga county delegation are for him. He said he had been misunderstood arid misrepresented in the present controversy and charged that it -"iraa not true tliat he had attended a Democratic conference to defeat Hanna- He said he die not know that such a conference Itat been held. He expressed the belief tljat iihe members ol the house and senate i«hould settle the question; of a senator and that all others should remain »' ill tic fight. "But tbi*.**^ fce fkid.

The messerager ftVred no resistance, though he was rel'l armed, and after the robbers had .ound him one of the two stood-guard ,ver him while the other rifled the uafe. New Hand* JntUe Profession. The robbers are described as smooth aced young men and the fact that both vere extremely nervous while in the express car is taken as evidence that hey are new recruits to Kansas City's •orce of train robbers. At 7:10-o'clock ast night a special tram was sent to the scene of the robbery with a force of policemen and marshals, and these men are now scouring the country along the river banks in search of the robbers. Though last night's robbery Is the first that has occurred on the Pittsburg and Gulf line it is the sixth crime of the kind perpetrated In Kansas City within fifteen months. There have been several arrests of alleged train robber* during this period, but there has not been a single conviction. HE IS IN THE PEN FOR LIFE.

Sturgeon Bay, Wis., Jan. 5.—Mrs. Ephie Gilmore ended her life 'Sunday ig-ht by" committing suicide, taking a ose of arsenic. She and her mother, trs. Charles Stevenson, had been ar- ested the day before on the charge of eecing a Norwegian out of $10.
