A reorganization in the plan of the operation of the Union Pacific railway system has been ordered. It is to be made effective January 15. A circular was received in this city this morning announcing the changes that are to be made. One of the most important changes is the abolishment of the old Missouri river and the Grand Island divisions and the creation of two new eastern divisions which will be known as the Kansas division and the Nebraska division respectively. According to the circular General Man ager W. P. Eobinson, Jr., of the St Joseph & Grand Island division, whose headquarters have always been at St. Joseph, is left out in the cold as, apparently, is also his stenographer and force of clerks. Hereafter it is said the Union Pacific will have a general agency at St. Joseph like the Santa Fe has. General Manager J.'D. ISrinkerhoff, of the Missouri river division will become general superintendent of the Kansas division. Mr. Brinkerhoff's position is made a more important one by the change in title. He will have charge of all the lines in Kansas and the greater portion of the St Joseph A Grand Island division is added to hIsterritory. The Kansas division includes the lines from Kansas City to Denver, from St Joseph to Grand Island, from Fairfield to Alma, from Marysville to Manhattan, from Leavenworth to Miltonsvale, from Leavenworth to Lawrence, from Leavenworth to Topeka, from Junction City to Concordia and Belleville, from Solomon to Beloit, from Salina to Wakeley and from Salina to McPherson. Mr. Brink-rhoff will continue to make his headquarters at Kansas City. The circular states that Robert Bllck-ensderfer will be general acting superintendent of the Nebraska division, until further notice. He will have charge of the system in Nebraska outside of the old Grand Island division. The 'cut off" from Julesburg to La Salle, Col., will be taken from the gulf division and included In his territory. ' After January 15 E. J.

Winnipeg, Man., Jan. 9. The skeleton of a ten-year-old Victoria Indian boy has been found six miles east of Fort Saskatchewan, standing with Its arms outstretched and the wrists tied to two trees. The body has been identified aa the son of the Indian Blue Horn, who went hunting and trapping with his boy in the Beaver Hills near Fort Saskatchewan last June. While looking at his traps one day, accompanied by the i-boy, Blue Horn told the latter to re-1 turn to camp while he continued to ex-I amine his traps. On the return of Blue Horn to the camp he was surprised to find that the boy had not returned." The other Indians in the camp turned out and searched for the boy, but did not find him. Yesterday a half-breed from Beaver Lake, named Charles Desch-nault, found in the woods not far from New Beaver Lake a trail, and about six miles east of Fort Saskatchewan the skeleton of the child. From the situation of the skeleton it is evident that the boy was killed and offered as a sacrifice by some Indiana on a hunting expedition, as is their cos-toni. The Indians had hung about the body pieces of . cloth and trinkets to secure the favor of the gods. TORNADO IN TEXAS. Several House Blown Down at - Sher-( man. Sherman, Tex., Jan. 8.

COSXECriCCT CONTENTION. Tronble In Orgnnliln; the New State Government. Hartford, Conn., Jan. 9. Both branches of .the Legislature met at 10 o'clock yesterday. The Senate speedily organized, by electing Read, of Bridgeport (Democrat) President pro tens, with the other caucus nominees. The House spent a long time in organizing owing to technical questions about seating several members which, however, did not affect the Republican majorty. Finally A. W. Paige was made Speaker and the other Republican caucus nominees elected. The Senate sent a committee of two Democrats to the board of canvassers, demanding the official canvass. It was refused on the ground that the canvass must be sent to the General Assembly, which was not then organized. At 1 o'clock, however, it was. sent to the House, according to custom. The House adopted the usual joint rules and committees were appointed under them. About 5 o'clock the House sent the official canvass to the Senate with a resolution referring it to the joint committee on canvass of votes for State officers. The Senate had voted not to create such a committee this year and when the canvass and returns came in the Senate created a special committee of its own to examine and report upon them. After about two hours' conference the majority of the committee (two Democrats) reported that Luzon B. Morris was elected Governor the regular Democratic ticket Resolutions declaring each candidate so elected were The Republican member of the committee reported that various persons had been refused opportunity to show that the returns were incorrect and that as the returns were not right no one should be declared elected, and the matter Bhould be examined into and the fact of no election shown. This was defeated. The House took a recess to 10 o'clock next morning and the Senate, after declaring the State officers elected adjourned. A caucus of Republican Senators and Representatives nominated 0. II. Piatt for Senator unanimously. THE TVRXER LETTER. McOrath Bitterly Denounce the Publication of the Alleged Turner Letter The Congressman Denies That He Wrote It. Topeka, Kan., Jan. 9. The Alliance Tribune publishes a ' statement from President McGrath, of the State Alliance, with reference to the letter published yesterday in the Advocate, purporting to have been addressed to Mr. McGrath by Congressman Turner, and which created a tremendous sensation in political circles.

Salt Law?, Utah, Jan. 9. A special dispatch this morning from Pocatello, Idaho, says the Indians are burning the town. Troops have been asked for from Boise City. An earlier, dispatch, from Pocatello said: "The Indians on the Fort Hall reserve have been dancing, and 200 bucks in war paint have taken to the mountains with arms, causing great excitement. "Governor Wiley has been asked to order the militia to Pocatello, and probably a company of United States cavalry at Boise barracks will be sent there. "The Indians on the reserve number 1,200 or 1,500, more than half of whom are Bannocks who caused the prolonged war twelve year ago. !JThe people of Pocatello have almost no arms, and the towns of Eagle and Blackfoot are on the border of the reserve. "The Indians who took to the mountains are working eastward toward Wyoming. . 'The belief is expressed that if the the Indians at Pocatello go on the war path they will be joined by the tribes on the Lemhi reservation, who number 500, embracing 125 able bodied bucks."

Outlying Plrkrts Attacked Red Cloud and Followers Desirous of Peace Mysterious Movement of Hostile Many Tribe In Rebellion. Pine Ridgk Agency, S. D., Jan. 9. Late last night General Miles received official information of the killing near the hostile tamp of Lieutenant Casey of the Twenty-second infantry, who had ventured too near the savages. He was shot through the head. General Brooke, who sent this startling information, also reported heavy firing in the 'direction of the hostile camp, and it is supposed that the Indians have attacked a division of the troops or fired upon a passing train. Lieutenant Casey was one of the brightest young officers of the army. The Indians who are now in rebellion represent all the reservations in Dakota. There are many Cheyennes among them, and scouts say that bands of Ara-pahoes have joined the hostile forces. Yesterday was beef issue day, and over 4,000 Indians took a hand in the slaughter of the 105 steers which were issued. Many of the hostiles came to get their meat and when'lhey received their share, they galloped back to the village with their Winchesters slung over the pummels of their saddles. General Miles expects to leave the agency in a day or two to superintend the movements himself. The cordon of troops is slowly closing in around the hostiles in the valley on White Clay creek. General Brooke has given instructions that each commander of troops in this vicinity patrol the country from one command to the other to see that no party, however small, of the hostiles escapes. Late Tuesdav night the camp was aroused by shots being exchanged by one of the outlying pickets about three-quarters of a mile from camp. Immediately every one was under arms, horses were saddled and two troops were sent out to the scene. Ky this time a picket rode into camp and stated that while they were on guard a band of Indians tried to surprise them, shooting at them from behind a pile of rocks. They returned the tire. During the firing one of the pickets was slightly wounded. Lioutenant C-'usev was born in California, but was appointed to the Military Academy at West Point from Louisiana in 1869. On graduating in 1875 he was appointed as Second Lieutenant in the Twenty-second infantry,, ai-il. was promoted to a First Lieutenancy in 1880. He served with his regiment in the Department of Texas, Dakota and "Missouri up to 1883, when he was made senior assistant instructor of infantry and artillery tactics at West Point, serving there a year. He was adjutant of his regiment from 1884 to 1887. He was regarded as one of the brightest young officers in the service. Couriers from among the hostiles repeat the announcement that nothing can arrest bloodshed while at headquarters hopes are entertained that the trouble will soon end in peace. Late last evening the General received word from Red Cloud that he would come in and bring all the Indians he could with him. The General thinks that Two Strike will accompany Red Cloud and that they may be followed by all the other Indians. Some of the hostiles were seen leaving camp Tuesday night and making their way over the country toward the various agencies. Whether their errand signified disintegration or an effort to secure recruits is not yet known, though the scouts think the former. Paymaster Major Baker has left Rushville for the agency with money to pay off the troops. WEDNESDAY'S CONGRESS. Further Debate on the Financial Bill In the Senate The Home and Ship Subsidies. Washington, Jan. 8. After agreeing to the conference report on the public printing deficiency bill the Senate yesterday took up the financial bill. Mr. DanH (Va.) spoke in favor -of the bill and the absolute free and unlimited coinage of silver. At the close of his speech Mr. Plumb followed in an argument in favor of free coinage. He did not elaim that free coinage was a panacea for all evils, but contended it was a long, a wise and important step in the right direction. Mr. lliscock spoke against the amendment (free coinage). After an executive session the Senate adjourned. After the morning hour the House, in Committee of the Whole, resumed consideration of the shipping bill Mr. Herbert (Ala.) opposed the bill and Mr. Dingley jM,e.) spoke in favor. Mr. Dockeryf li.) spoke against it Pending debat ' the House adjourned. Matabele Hen Threatening. London, Jan. 9.

The forces of the South Africa Company are in a bad condition, and are not likely to hold their ground in the face of a serious attack, so that it the natives are not dissuaded from their purpose, the work oi that expedition will be virtually destroyed. - A Consul's Reception. Huron, S. D., Jan. 9. Colonel Ray Myers, Consul at San Salvador, has instituted a suit for (50,000 against that Republic ' and is pressing his claim through the State Department When he arrived at his post a year ago he found a rebellion in progress and he had to make his way to his hotel amid shot and shell.

"THE BE A UTLTVL.' Prof. Snow Reduce to Figures the Balmy CUraate of Kansas. Lawrevce, Kan., Jan. 9. Prof. Snow ha-J prepared a meteorological summary for the year 1890 from observations taken from the university. This shows that the year 1890 was one of the six warmest years upon his twenty-three years' record, the thermometer having reached the zero point but twice during the year. The rainfall was above the average, but an untimely deficiency in June and July was disastrous to the crop in nearly all parts of the State. Some remarkable peculiarities of this year were the extremely low barometer of March 37, which gave the lowest reading ever observed at this station, and the date of the first snow, which did not make its appearance until Dec-cember 23, forty-three days later than the average date. The mean temperature of the year was 54:10 degrees, which is 1:83 degrees above the mean for the preceding twenty-two years. The highest was 101.5 degrees on July 14; the lowest 5 degrees below zero, January 16, giving a range of 105:5 degrees. The mean of the winter months, 31:99 degrees, which is 3:06 degrees above the average. Of the spring it was 52:55 degrees, which was 1:17 degrees above the average; of the summer, 77:94 degrees, 2:33 degrees above the average; of the autumn, 54:03, 0:55 degrees above the average. The warmest month of the year was July, with mean temperature 82:76; the warmest week, July 8 to 14, mean, 85:13 degrees; the warmest day, July 14, mean, 88:47 degrees. The mercury reached or exceeded 90 degrees on forty-three days, 8 below average. The coldest month was January, the mean temperature being 23:24 degrees; the coldest week, January 15 to 21, mean temperature, 13:56 degrees; the coldest day, January 15, mean, 6:12 above zero. The mercury fell below zero on only two days, of which one was in January and the other in February. The entire rainfall, including melted snow, was 30.32 inches, was was 0.83 inches above the annual average. The rain of the afternoon and night of October 12 measured 4.42 inches, which surpassed any previous single rainfall on record, except the 5.68 inches of August 12, 1889. The number of thunder showers was twenty-four. May 20 occurred the only hailstorm of the year. The entire depth of snow was 15.50 inches, of which eight inches fell in January, three in February, one-half in March and four inches in December. This was 5.08 inches below the annual average. The velocity of the wind was below the average for the preceding seventeen years. There were twenty-five fogs, which number had been but twice exceeded. REDISTRICTLNB DISTRICTS.

Two Chairmen and Two Gavel Going-After Four Hours' Barking Both Bides Agree to Adjourn The Points Involved In the Controversy. Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 9. The proceedings in the Nebraska Legislature yesterday afternoon were of an extraordinary character. At 8 o'clock the Senate aud House assembled in joint session for the purpose of canvassing the vote of State officers as prescribed by the Constitution. Trouble was precipitated at the outset by a misunderstanding as to which officer should preside over the joint convention. Lieutenant-Governor Mickle-john advanced to the chair to preside, claiming his right under the Constitution, the statutes and the uniform practice of the State. Speaker Elder, of the House, refused to vacate and the two officers occupied 'chairs side by side, each claiming the gaveL The Speaker attempted to call the body to order, but was himself called to order by the Lieutenant-Governor. The hall was crowded and the excitement was intense, but no demonstration was made beyond some loud talk and a number of motions to change the plan of proceeding to the canvass. These motions were declared out of order. The official returns were brought in by the Secretary of State and laid before the body. The Speaker was directed by the Lieutenant-Governor to open the package and read the returns. He began the work, but was advised by the attorney for the Independent party not to do so. He then refused to go on with the work. The Lieutenant-Governor ruled that no businfess could be transacted until the returns were canvassed and this brought on a deadlock. The joint convention sat for nearly four hours, the time being taken up by oratorical fencing and labored argument from each side to prove that the other was in the wrong. At 7 o'clock a recess was taken until 10 o'clock this morning, when the deadlock will again be in force unless one side decides on a course that will bring victory. The point involved is this: The Independent or Alliance party is contesting the election of the Democratic Governor and the remaining State officers, all Republicans. They wish to prevent the announcement of the election of these officers, evidently preferring to Beat the contestants directly. Lieutenant-Governor Micklejohn, who is a Republican, holds that it is his duty to declare the officers having a majority on the face of the returns, so that if there is to be a contest it must be commenced in the regular way after this announcement of election is made. The Alliance men are in a majority and had the Speaker of the House been a stronger man they would undoubtedly have brought affairs to a crisis yesterday by a show of muscular as well as numerical strength. MINNESOTA LEGISLATURE. No Choice For Speaker of the House Bills In the Senate. St. Paul, Minn., Jan. 9. The House of Representatives met at 10 o'clock and resumed balloting for Speaker. There was no material change. At the afternoon session another ballot for Speaker was cast, resulting: Searles 40, Stivers 41, Chaplain 83. The House then adjourned till morning and the conference committees from the caucuses resumed their efforts to bring about a compromise. The Senate met and adioumed till afternoon. Two bills introduced were to fix the rate of interest, 8 per cent being made the maximum in both cases and 6 minimum in one and 7 in the other bill. A bill for the inspection of binding twine by the dairy commission was introduced and one for the separation of villages from towns. The caucus . conference committees were hard at work and at midnight there -was hut one point to be agreed upon that of chairmanship of the House Railroad Committee, which was wanted by both the Alliance and the Democrats. THE PENSION ROLLS. The New Certificates Issued During DecemberFee Paid Attorney. Washington, Jan. 9. The Pension Office. during December issued 8,599 certificates under the old laws and 5,183 certificates under the law of June 27 last Besides these original pension claims there were adjusted 9,531 claims for an increase, reissue and rerating, making in all 18,802 claims adjudicated, or about 800 more than in any previous month. Inasmuch as all claims under the new law are taken up in their order, and the adjudication of new claims has just begun, any person having a claim can ascertain approximately the number of months before it will be reached by dividing the number of his claim by five. The total of fees paid to pension attorneys for claims adjusted during December amounts to 8237,005. Only 23 per cent of the claims taken from the completed files were found to -be complete. All claims in which no attorney is employed have been given to a board of experienced clerks for immediate adjustment Senator Teller, Washington, Jan. 9. Senator Teller has received a dispatch from Denver, signed by every Republican of the Legis lature of Colorado, saying that whatever differences might exist on other subjects in the minds of the members of the Republican party in Colorado there was but one sentiment throughout the State respecting the Senator-ship, and that was in favor of Senator Teller.
