It is believed that the house will ultimately concur, since it will be apparent that l he senate cannot be forced to puss any of the 1'lngree measures.

Hlackburn was nominated for I'uiicd Slates senator by a joint Itemocratic caucus, presided over by Senator (ioebel. The caucus was not .attended by Senators Hays and Alexander and the Brown Democrats, but every other Democratic, member of both houses was either present or accounted lor. The meeting was harmonious throughout and no oilier person was mentioned The legislative bribery case was before .Indge Cantrill. The officers of Hie Louisville Trust company had been ruled for contempt for refusing to turn over to the court here the safety box, said to contain .1!4.r>no to be paid by U halleu to Senator llarrell if he voted against (ioeliel in the contest case. Tho response of President Loving to l lie rule admits that \Vhallon, llarrell and Ityan came together and rented a box .-Hid put something In it, but alleges that this Is private property and not subject to court orders, .luclgc Canlrill adjudged the response iusigni- licatit. and that the box must lie brought here. President LoVIng and other ofilcers of the Trust coinpau. were then ordered before'the grand jury to give testimony in the case. The governorship contest was precipitated in the house by a motion from Itepreseiilative llasv.'cll. Republican, for ihe appointment of a cominittee of two Democrats and two Uepnbllc ans lo assist ihe clerk and witness the preparation of the ballots from which the contest committee is lo be drawn by lot. Tin 1 Democrats opposed the mo- lion on ihe ground that the law provides the manlier of soloeiing the committee. A partisan debate followed and Ilic million was finally ruled out of order by Speaker Trimble. The notices of contests by (ioebel and Keek- ham were tiled in each house dml spread on the journals. .Sru Vurk (,1-ifUliitiov M«•<•!•.. Albany. N.

The British losses were only three men killed and eight wounded. London, Jan. ."..—The success of Genera! French's column is at length «iu- lirmed officially, the war office issuing a dispatch from Cape Town, Monday, Jan. 1. as follows: "French reports at '2 p. in. today from Colenkop, by heliograph, as follows: 'Leaving al ttensburg, holding the enemy in front, half of the First Sulfolks ami a section of Ihc.Uoyal Horse artillery I started them-e ai ."i iu Ihe afternoon.

" 'The enemy's outposts were taken completely by surprise. Al daylight we shelled the laager and enliladcd the right of the enemy's position. The artillery tire in reply was very hot from a l.Vpouuder using royal laboratory ammunition and oilier guns. We silenced Ihe guns ini the enemy's right think, demonstrating with cavalry and gnus to the north of Colesberg, towards the junction where a strong laager of the enemy was holding a hill, and a position southeast of Colesberg as far as the junction. Our position cuts Ihe line of retreat via the road and bridge. Some thousands of Boers with two guns are reported to be retiring towards Norval's Pont. All of Remington's scouts proceeded toward Aehtvrland yesterday morning. Slight casualties, about three killed and few wounded. Details later." Itocrs Snl)'«ri-(l Heavily. Brief Independent messages from Colesberg Hied the evening of Jan. 1 supplemented (ieneral French's dispatch but slightly. According to them the British were still shelling the Boer position at fi o'clock Monday evening and expected to enter Coles- berg Tuesday. The British losses were three men killed and seven wounded. No officers were killed or wounded. The Boers are supposed to have suffered heavily from the aci.'nracy of the British artillery lire. (ieneral French's statement that the Boers were using a In- pounder and Woolwich ammunition evidently refers to one of the British guns captured at Stromberg. The Boer strength in the engagement with (ieneral French was estimated at from 5.000 to 7,000 men. The war office has also received the following from Cape Town under Tuesday's date: "Colonel Pilcher reports through the officer commanding at the Orange river: 'I 1mve completely defeated a hostile command at the Suniiyslde Innger, this day. .Ian. 1, taking the laager and forty prisoners, besides the killed and woiimled. Our casualties two privates killed and Lieutenant Adie wounded. Am encamped a( Dover farm, twenty miles northwest of Belmont and ten miles I'rom Smmysidc.' " KnVct of I'ViMlHi'M Nnrr«**fi. Wldle the afternoon newspapers are disposed to overrate the brilliancy of (ieiienil French's success, It will doubtless have a good moral effect and, If prompUy followed up, as seems likely I'rom tlie fact that Itemington's guides are already advancing on Achterlang's, li may result In securing Norval's Ponl bridge, thus gaining an Important strategic advantage, as thence (ieneral French will probably be able to threaten Belhnlie bridge, which Is the main line of retreat for the Boers facing (ieneral (iatacre.

Ooolirl In Control. Senator (ioebel is in control of the slate legislature and it now looks very promising for his light to unseat Governor Taylor, (ioebel held the house caucus safe and the senate caucus chose him for president pro tem. Only four senators remained away through dissension. They were Alexander. Hays, (illlesple and Huberts. Senator Kobel-ls wfis ill and unable to attend, but sent word Iliat he was with (Soebel In everything that might be done. South Trimble. Ihe (ioebel candidate for speaker of Hie house, was chosen on the sixth ballot of Ihe caucus for speaker of l lie house. Senator < ioebel. chairman of the I'roniixr Dc-IVnl for Illncklni rn. Democratic joint caucus, has issued a call for a caucus. lie says the caucus is for l lie purpose of nominating a candidate for fulled Stales senator, lie expects Blackburn will be the only name presented and that Blackburn will be nominated by acclamation. The anti-i!oehclitcs. however, assert and produce ligures to show that they have Blackburn defeated. P. Wat llardiu may be brought forward as their candidate. This would weaken Blackburn very much. Atorneys for (ioebel and other w.m- testing Democratic candidates for state offices have served notices upon tlie Jtepnbliean conlestees to lake depositions to be used as evidence in Ihe pending conlest cases and naming their witnesses. The list of witnesses includes ex-Ciovernor Bradley, Senator Deboe. (ieneral Basil W. Duke, John II. Whulleii and others. Anlts O|K>n l!*Ml(l(|iltirlcrN.
