The senate had been in a deadlock because the democrats had twenty-live votes, 4)he republicans twenty-four, and the Engle party one vote. The democrats, not being able to deal satisfactorily with Kngle, simply refused to vote, and as the roll calls showed only 25 ballots, •or loss than a majority, no quorum under the old rule was present. This was unimportantat first as the presiding Officer had hold that it would take 20 votes to transact business or elect officers. But the republican leaders Wednesday showed him where that question had been repeatedly decided In the courts, and they had uniformly held that a majority of 1,he whole body was not needed to transact business, but only n majority of those taking part, a quorum being present. Thursday morning, therefore, tho chair announced that a majority of the quorum would elect officers, and the balloting began on the candidate for chief clerk. stay away.

There was no quorum under the old rule, although every democrat was in his chair and nearly all had answered to roll call. But a change was at hand and one that made the democratic leaders buzz about like bees in an overturned hive. Gov.

Twelve senators were called, making a quorum present, and there being 25 votes cast, of which Cliff had a majority, he was duly declared elected.

The next ballot showed a full democratic and the democratic candidate „ Senator Brewer's vote was elected. The entire business of choosing minor officers was closed in a few hours, and the regular work of the session begun. What promised to bo a week's deadlock was brought to a standstill in a few minutes by this simple expedient of saying that a membor is present when to the unaided eye it is apparent that he is present. When Speaker Reed first announced this rule it was received with great indignation. He was denounced as a czar, autocrat, dictator, and general disturber of tho public peace. But the moment anyone was asked whoroin it was unjust, there was a hitch in the discussion.

What objection there to saying that Senator Bolter present and ready for business when he was in his sent and had answered to the roll call? What right of the people was being infringed by assuming that their representatives wore business when they had Senator Brower voted with the democrats and helped them elect the minor officers in the senate, except the chief clerk He gave as his reason the democratic majority on a tie vote after Bestow is seated and said: "I prefer that the party whom the people of Iowa at the ballot box decreed should have a majority of one In this body on a tie vote, when the permanent organization is perfected, should have what the people of Iowa said they should have and shall vote accordingly." This rule, if carried to a logical conclusion, would warrant republicans in voting for any democratic measure, and is manifestly not well founded. But Senator Brower probably did not intend it to apply to anything but the election of minor officials.

BRAINERD, Minn.,.'Special Telegram, Jan. 15.—-A horrible railroad nocidi.-nt occurred on the Northern Pacific road seven miles from this city, near Janesville, today. Tihe train left West Superior about midnight as second section of No. 9, consisting of a baggage car and sleeper, the latter coach being occupied by the Andrews Opera company, who were on iheir way to Grand Forks, where they were to appear this evening. The train was in charge of Conductor Eugene Ball and Engineer Chas. Leake. The night was one of the coldest this season, the thermometer marking as low as 52 degrees below zero. When about a quarter of a mile this side of Janesville the train struck a broken rail, the engine and baggage car passing over in safety, but the sleeper was derailed. No one but occupants of the sleeping car knew there was anything ,wrong,:and quicker .than it takes to write of it, the car toppled over on her side and broke loose from the balance of the train, sliding down a five-foot embankment and lying in that condition. The jar occasioned by was not runhiiig over 25 or SO miles ail hour. THK KlttED AND INJURED. . The list of killed and Injured is as follows: • - ,; »*T i Mrs. Ed. M.

Brave men paled at the sight, and commenced with resolute hands to rescue the perishing. A HORRIBLE SITUATION. It seemed to those who were outside that many must be burned to death before they could possibly get out. By this time the whole car was a mass of flames. Women clad in scanty garments were being rescued with their hair and night clothes in flames. It was a sickening sight. Finally it was reported that everyone had been rescued; but upon a count it was discovered that Mrs. Edward Andrews and Mrs. year somewhere, and is very likely to goithrough to Sioux City, and all items about it have local interest. The Republican aiiys: Hon. Thos. Simpson, secretary of the Winona & South western railroad, was in ithe city for a few days last week. On Saturday night a meeting of a number of the prominent men of the city was held at the office of Messrs. Cliggett & Rule. Mr. Simpson made a short address before the meeting in which ho outlined the purposes of the management of the Winona & Southwestern Railroad company. Ho said it was the purpose of the company to extend their line farther west in order to secure an outlet for the lumber and coal located on the eastern branch of their system. The company he said had originally intended to go to Omaha in securing the Mason Citv *.-i? n »t. The fortieth annual meeting of the state agricultural society was held at Des Moines last Wednesday, and wag attended by 95 delegates from county associations and as many more who came to visit. It Was a representative body of Iowa citizens, and as much interest was taken in its proceedings as in the deadlock in the Senate. The morning session was devoted to ah ad'' dress from President Head, Secretary Shaffer's report, and reports of committees. President Head said there are now 114 agricultural fair associations in the state. We have already published tho returns of Iowa's crops as given by Secretary Shaffer. His report is the most voluminous ever prepared, and by it the grand total value of Iowa products of farm, pasture, and dairy is placed at the almost stunend. ous figure of $404,210,308, or over S for every man, woman, and child In the state, an average of $],1()0 per fa m t" v ncluding those engaged in mining transportation, manufactures, or coin! merce. As the number of farms in tho state is placed at 200,000 it means that the average farmer raised $2,200 worth of products in 1891. tn » ELECTION OP OFFICERS.
