Columbus, O., Jan. 13. — Marcus A. Hanna was elected yesterday to represent Ohio in the senate for seven years and two months. If McKinley should be re-elected Hanna would still bet here to the end of the president's second term. Including both the short and the long terms. Hanna's time as senator will expire in March, 1905. Less than two years ago Hanna entered politics, advocating William McKin- fey's candidacy for the presidency. He was successful as the leader of the McKinley forces at the St. Louis convention, and afterward as chairman of the national Republican committee. For almost a year he has been in the senate as the successor of John Sherman. During his short service in public life Hanna has participated in hard fighting, but he never before won such a victory as that of yesterday. Factional fighting has waged among Ohio Republican? for years. Hanna Fights in the Open. Others had been fighting under cover. Hanna came out openly at the state convention in Toledo last June and defeated Charles L. Kurtz, the close friend of Foraker. Bushnell and others, for chairman of the state committee. Kurtz had been a member of the state committee for many years and its chairman for 1895 and 1896. In the latter year Hanna, who was then managing the presidential campaign, was not satisfied with the work in Ohio, and he did not want Kurtz in that position for 1897. Hanna defeated Kurtz at Toledo for chairman, and has had a factional war on himself ever since. Although Hanna was duly declared senator at noon yesterday, for both the long and short terms, yet the opposition continued its fight in the afternoon and is still fig-bting. Proposition Indignantly Rejected. Previous to the joint balloting yesterday the opposition offered to support Senator Dodge, of Cleveland, for the short term, with McKisson for the long term. Dodge is a neighbor of Hanna in Cleveland, and was nominated and elected on pledges for Hanna. Dodge stated that the senators and representatives from Cleveland were instructed for Hanna, and indignantly rejected the proposition. The proposition was also made to Mrs. Dodge, who was equally as indignant as her husband. While there were many negotiations with the wives and other members of the families of senators and representatives' during the past week or more, the effort to secure the influence of Mrs. Dodge was the last one reported, Opposition Knew It Was Defeated. The opposition yesterday knew it was defeated before the joint balloting began, but fought to the last on the charges of bribery and coercion. In the oint balloting yesterday there were no changes whatever by the senators over their two ballots of yesterday for the ong and short terms, ' McKisson received 19 votes and Hanna 17. When .he roll Of the house was called it re- rulted in the ballots for both terms .s follows: Hanna, 56: McKisson, 51; Lentz, 1, and one absent (Cramer).

Columbus, O., Jan. 13.—Senator Hanna has received over 2.000 congratulatory telegrams. All the members of the national Republican committee and many state committeemen and other representative Republicans from all the states and various county chairmen are included among them. He has sent the following addressed to the president: "God reigns and the Republican party stiU lives." In reply he received this from the executive mansion at Washington: "Mrs. McKinley joins me in hearty congratulations." POLICE COMPLICATION AT OMAHA. Chief and Commission Fortified in Their Room* Against an Attack* Omaha, Jan. 13.—Pending the settlement of the existing difficulty in connection with the Omaha police commission the city hall is in a state of siege, the chief of police having in his office a force of men, while in the rooms of ihe police commission another force its quartered. All this grows out of an attack made by a firm of local attorneys on the constitutionality of the act under which the acting board was appointed by Governor Holcomb, Proceedings were broughfseveral davs ago for a writ of mandamus, directing the city council to declare vacant the office of police commissioner for Omaha and appoint tie new board. The question was submitted to Judge Scott, of the eqult division of the district court, and by him taken under advisemem: after argument. Yesterday morning Judge Scott handed down his decision holding that the provision of the statute under which the governor names the police commissioners for Omah? is unconstitutional. Since the decision was rendered the ccamcil has had several caucuses, and was last night • to receive from the mayor the names of the new board. After six hours spent in consultation and caucus the counc-il adjourned without taking action. It will meet, again today. In the meantime the governor's appointees hold the office with their force of policemen, and express determination to hang on in spite of the court's orders. THIS WOMAN A DEGENERATE! She Murders Her Stepdaughter and Nearly Getp Four Men. Lynched. Algonquin, Ills., Jan. 13.—Mrs. Annie Wollert has confessed that she killed her 13-year-old stepdaughter Tuesday and has been removed to the Woodstock jail for safe keeping. The woman first told her neighbors that a tramp had shot the girl. Within an hour after the crime was known searching parties were scouring: the country in every direction for tramps.

Fort Smith, Ark., Jan. 13.—Two score of human lives and upwards of $1,000,000 worth of property were destroyed by a terrible tornado which burst upon this city a few minutes past 11 o'clock Tuesday night. The storm struck near the National cemetery and tore ita way through the entire city, leaving Its path marked by death and desolation. Men, women and children, peacefully sleeping in their homes, were without a moment's warning- awakened to meet a horrible death in the fearful storm, while others momentarily more fortu-. nate, and who escaped the furies of tha wind, met a far worse fate a few moments later in the flames which aoon engulfed many of the wrecked build- Ings. The scene following the first terrific crash of the storm was one o£ awful grandeur. Business blocks, handsome mansions, hotels and humble cottages were razee! to the ground and scattered in shapeless masses. Several of the wrecks caught flre and the inflammable timbers burned furiously. Full Horror May Never Be K.UOIVH. The city was crowded with rural visitors, many of whom were sleeping at boarding houses unregistered. For this reason the' number of victims who perished in Fort Smith Tuesday may never be definitely known. The storm struck the city near the National cemetery and swept its way through the heart of the town. Leaving Fort Smith, it bounded by Van Buren and continued down the river, demolishing everything in its path. News from outside points is not yet at hand, but rumors of much damage as far south as Alma have reached here, it being reported that a number cf person.? were killed near that place. The citizens' relief committee' has 510,000 'in hand for assisting sufferers. President Robinson, of the 'Frisco railroad, unsolicited, sent hja check for $1,000. The Missouri Pacific railroad also sent $1,000. Business is practically abandoned all over the city and men of al! classes are assisting in clearing the debris. Fire Attacks One Ruin. The upper floor of the block on the corner of Garrison and Towsou avenue is used as a flat. The ruins caught fire from the night lamp. Seven bodies were taken from these ruins, two. of them being so badly burned that they could scarcely be identified. Burgessa hotel, a three story brick on Towsou. avenue, was demolished. There have been eight bodies already taken from the ruins. The federal court is In session and that brought a great many farmers here who crowded the cheaper boarding houses and wagon yards. Thr National House, a two-ptory frame, went down in wreckage with fifteen e?, but ajl escaped without serious injury.

Columbus, 0., Jan. li—The fight over the senatorshlp from Ohio being '~eflde< and Marcus A Hanna elected for both Jong and short terms by the one vote !n the Joint ballot that was necessary his partisans started in yesterday afternoon to celebrate the event. The demonstrations in the legislative hal were unusually enthusiastic. Governor Bushnell and some other state officers were not present. When Foraker was elected senator in the same hall two years ago, McKinley and Bushnell were both present, the one having just retired and the other having just been inaugurated governor. It has been customary in former years for the governor to be seated beside the lieutenant governor when the newly elected senator was escorted into Ihe hall. Hanna was very busily engaged in his contest last Monday and didn't participate in the inauguration exercises. It is stated that no invitation or special arrangement had been made for him on that occasion and that the same was true regarding the governor yesterday. Colonel J. L. Rodgers, the secretary ,o the governor, went to the Xeil House it 4 p. m., bearing the commission of ?anna as- United States senator for the ihort term. Hanna and .'''alf a dozen Friends repaired to the lidies' parlor, vhere Colonel Rodgers presented the iOmmission. Previous to the two houses if the legislature going into Joint con- •ention at noon for the election of a enator resolutions were offered in both louses for an investigation of the ribery charges made by Representa- ive Otis, of Hamilton county. A^ter the election of Hanna the house a«J- ourned until today with its resolutions till under consideration. Consideration of this resolution was •esumed In the senate yesterday after- oon and adopted by a vote of 22 to 6. Tie dissenting votes were Blake, Carenter, Gerfield. May, Sullivan and 'oisht, -who explained that they regarded the matter as buncombe. The »mmittee of five appointed under this resolution ttesae its work last Dodd having driven one before him for two miles al the point of a revolver 1 , while the others had been encountered by the posse sent out trim Algonquin. If the-dress had not been fouHd" there would probably have been a quadruple atrocity in the way of a lynching. ILLINOIS SENATE TAKES A REST. No Morn Business This Week — Biouw JPusgeg and Defeats Tax BilU. Springfield, Jan. 13.—The only business transacted In the senate yesterday was the reading of the senate revenue bill a second time. When the secretary concluded the reading Crawford moved that further consideration be postponed until next Tuesday. The motion prevailed and an adjournment was taken for the day. This practically means that no further business will be transacted in the senate this -week, or until the police investigation committee returns from Chicago. In the house LaMonte's bill taxing grain in elevators was advanced to third reading. Nohe's bill authorizing the state board of equalization to. assess "all companies or associations incorporated under the laws of otherstat.es, territories or foreign countries and doing business in this state, in the same manner as domestic corporations, was passed—yeas, 100; nays, 35. The house than took up on third reading the bill j taxing gas companies 4 per cent on their gross earnings, in addition to present taxes, and it was defeated—61 to 4& Notice of a motion to reconsider was given. ) The house adopted a resolution declaring that all property shall I* '.listed 'or taxation at cash value and passed he senate bill appropriating $15,000 for salaries of tn« present extra session- National Cemetery Devastated.
