Columbus. O.. Jan. 11.—The mass Republican convenlioi at the Auditorium in this city yestettlay afternoon was the larg-est assemblage ever known in the history of the city. The capacity of the Auditorium is 5.000. All the standing room was taken and many thousand.-; were unable to gain admittance. The meeting: lasted from 3 to 6 p. m.. with unbroken enthusiasm and intense indignation throughout its proceedings. There were repeated scenes of hissing when the names of Governor Bushnell. Kurtz and others were mentioned. The terms "traitors," "Judas" and'the like were frequently used. In responses from the audience. Several of the speakers referred to Senator Poraker in connection with the revolution in the party. The audience was in close and deep sympathy with the intense and bitter utterances of most of the speakers. The Columbus Glee club, which refused to participate In the inaugural ceremonies, contributed largely to the enthusiasm of the occasion by its singing. Wild Scene of Enthusiasm. As Chairman Nash and Representative Weaver came upon the platform the Tippecanoe club, of Cleveland, and the Business Men's League of that city entered the ha.ll and there was a wild scene for some minutes. As soon as order could be restored Judge Nash addressed the audience, giving those who had refused to support Hanna for senator a roasting. Representative Walter L. Weaver, of Springfield, the home of Governor Bushnell, was then introduced as chairman of the meeting. He made a most vigorous speech against those whom he accused of schemes for the disruption of the party. The hissing of the name of Governor Bushnell, Kurtz and others that begun during t.he address of Judge Nash reached a much higher pitch during the address of Weaver. At the conclusion of Weaver's address Representatives Grosvenor, Xorthway, Burton and Southard, and Judge Gouble, of Cincinnati, were appointed ?- committee on resolutions. Nevin Whoops 'Jim Cp Louder. While the committee on resolutions was out Colonel Robert M, Nevln, of Dayton, spoke. Colonel Nevin has always been the close personal and political friend of Senator Foraker, Kurtz and others who are at this time opposing the election of Hanna. His speech against the action of those whom he charged with demoralizing and debauching the party caused the greatest demonstration of the afternoon. Almost the entire audience rose to it? feet and while standing on chairs, threw hats, handkerchiefs and other articles wildly about the hall. At the conclusion of this address the resolutions were read and unanimously adopted. Resolutions Are Not Very Severe. The -resolutions are preceded by a column of preamble, which at the end expresses the hope and belief that Gov- rrnor Bushnell will come out for party loyalty to Hanna. These are the reso- Tlic -.'--oncers; aia not sieep ana will not until after the balloting begins. There is a feeling among many of those opposing Hanna that if he is not defeated on the first ballot — or rather V>y the separate ballots—today- he will not be defeated at all. "While the exposition still Insists on Kurtz as the candidate against Hanna, yet it say* that Bushnell, Kurtz, or any other one will be dropped as soon as It Is demonstrated that he cannot secur« all of the votes of either the anti-Hanna Republicans or the Democratic members. One of the names most prominently mentionel yesterday was that of Representative John P. Jones, who represents Starke county, the home of President McKinley. Jones is a Republican and prominent in the miners' union. He is for free silver, and is advocated as the labor candidate against the capitalist. While the politicians were hard at work holding: votes in the senalorship light the inauguration of Governor Bushnell was proceeding.

According to the Outlook the Ji'ijrlit Before the Legislature Balloted. Columbus. O., Jan. 11.—Senator Hanna was believed last night to be one vote short of election. The opposition was not sure of 73 votes for any one man as against only 72 for Hanna, but it felt confident at least on preventing Hanna's election. Sunday night the Democratic steering- eommitteedemand- td of Kurtz that he furnish at least eight affidavits from Republican members that they would stand with the sixty-five Democratic members in voting against Hanna- The Democratic steering committee reported last night that it was satisfied. Representative Cayman, chaurman of the house Democratic steering committee, went so far as to say lianna's defeat today was assured. There is no doubt that Hanna was beaten for a week previous to l;nst Friday, when Representative Manuel, of Montgomery, changed in his favor. On Saturday the Hanna men secured Representative Griffith, of Union, trat they made no accessions Sundayor Saturday, and it is the general belief that they are short one vote. It has b&en agreed by a conference committee that the balloting in the two houses TrtU not begin until 2 p. m. today, ajid there may be several changes in that time.

GKOSVENOK BOYCOTTS BUSHNELL. Remarkable Letter to a Convict TVho Wanted His Professional Services. Columbus. O., Jan. 11.—Representative Grosvenor has written a remarkable letter. A convict in the Ohio penitentiary, Jannes H. Wiggins, serving a twenty-year term, has been endeavor- ins to get out. He had corresponded with Grosvenor, whom he desired to employ professionallly. In yesterday morning's mail a letter was received for Wiggins from Grosvenor. Letters to convicts are opened and read, and when the one from Grosvenor was received it was turned over to Warden Coffin. The letter was written on a letter head of the committee of mines and mining, of which Grosvenor is chairman, and bore the date of Washington, Jan. S, 1S9S. It is as follows: "Dear Sir—I will not undertake any employment, professional or otherwies, that will bring me in any way in contact with or into the presence of the person who is now exercising the office of governor of Ohio. Yours very truly, "C. H. GROSVENOR." Poraker "Kipt Out of It," Washington. Jan. 11.—Senator Foraker has returned to Washington and occupied his seat in the senate for the first time since the Christmas holidays. Referring to the Ohio senatorial contest, he said that it was very bitter and much to be deplored. "I have kept out of it," he said, "and have had nothing to do with it. except only to try to make peace. All efforts in this direction have so far been unavailing, but we hope yet to solve the difficulty in some way that will be as nearly satisfactory to the party and all. concerned as such settlements usually are. That is all I can say at present, without fear of doing more harm than good." SO CHARACTERISTIC, YOU KNC*V. Incident at a Murder Trial in the Great of Kentucky. Cincinnati. Jan. 11.—A special to The Commercial-Tribune from Mount Vernon, Ky., says: At the examining trial of William Hundley for killing John Lawrence, Judge Williams yesterday ordered the court room cleared so that all who desired to return might be examined by an" officer for weapons and disarmed. Five minutes afterwards Winchester rifles in front of the court house, in the hands of Pat and Eliza Langford, were firing at ex-Jailer William Mullins and his friends. Several revolvers replied from various quarters. Those injured by the Langfords were C. L. King, who received two bullets through the thigh, considered dangerous; William Mullins, shot throughboth hands. The Langfords claim that it was an accident in shooting King. All the participants were jailed, including ex- Deputy Sheriff Reuben Mullins, who was some distance away when the shooting opened and drew his pistol and fired at the Langfords until they disappeared. In the court room when the shooting occurred Hundley thought his father had been killed, and seizing the gun of a guard attempted to rush to the fray. It required six men to hold him. The trouble originated during the last campaign when a number uf leading Republicans bolted the ticket as nominated, among them being Sheriff Mullins. King and,.many^ others. Feels Himself Damaged $3O,OOO. Chicago. Jan. 11.—As an outcome of remark? which have been made Adolph Kraus. president of ihe civil service commission, who is a prominent Democrat, entered suit today against Attorney E. R. Bliss, a leading Republican, for $50.000 damages. The charge against Bliss is that he said Kraus was the whole thing—the Czax—of the civil service commission.. BUss says he never originated these statements, but simply repeated what another told him. He also says that he told Kraus himself the same story and joked about it, and that finally he had not repeated the charge for publication, distinctly telling the reporter who published it that what he said was not tor .the papers. Chicago T>xow Committee. Chicago, Jan. 11.—For three and a half hours yesterday afternoon the "police investigation" committee of the senate of the Illinois general assembly had the Chicago civil service commission on trial. Part of the time questions were asked by Senator Orville F. Berry, chairman of the committee, but E.

Glenn, secretary of the civil service commission. 2C° evidence of any f± Y&S- elidted. frorn. Gl£ Washington. Jan. 11.—In accordance with the previous notice Davis, chairman of the senate committee on foreign relations, brought up the subject of. the ratification of the Hawaiian annexation treaty in the senate yesterday. His motion was made soon after the disposal of the routine morning business, and the entire remainder of the day's session except the time given to the confirmation of nominations was devoted to the consideration of the question as to whether the treaty should be considered in open session or behind rlo.sed doors in executive session. After a debate of almost two hours upon this point an informal vote was taken, the ayes and noes not being demanded. The decision was overwhelmingly against an open session. The motion for open sessions was mad* by Gray, who presented his reasons in a speech of about five minutes' length urging that tlte question was of public concern, involving no entangling complications with oilier nations, and one which it was eminently proper should be considered before the public gaze. Davis Oppose* a Public DiBcnssion. Davis replied to Gray, contending for the observance of precedents in this matter and objecting quite strenuously to the proposition that the senata should take the public into its confidence in considering the treaty. But Morgan was the principal opponent of the Gray proposition. He talked at length. Most of the senators who spoke in opposition to open sessions referred to the probability that the action of the European powers in their evident purpose of partitioning the territory of China would form the basis of much of the debate on the question of Hawaiian annexation. It was also intimated that the: Monroe doctrine would come in for a fair share of discussion before the close of the debate. White Touches a Tender Spot White was among those who replied to these statements. He spoke spiritedly and in a sarcastic vein of the folly of attempting to keep executive secrets within the control of the senate. He made reply to the suggestion that the control of the publicity in regard, to^ treaties should be left to the executive. "" saying that the treaty Itself had been made public as also the president's message upon the subject. Merrill contended that the question of annexation was one of much public Interest and said that on this account the public should be fully informed of the reasons^ for and against annexation. He spoke* very briefly. M 11*011 tor Permanent Publicity. Mason took advantage of the opportunity to make a speech directed generally against executive sessions. He said he would take advantage of all ,1 such openings to exercise his Influence , to break down the senatorial rule for secret sessions. He asserted that the rule was out of date, out of keeping with the "progressive tendency,, of the times," moss-grown and obsolete, and argued;,that it should be abolished. The annexationists now claim 59 vote* ' for the treaty,, lacking only one of the number to ratify it. On the other baud the opposition says the radfiers will fair short from three to five votes.
