A HELENA (Mont.) dispatch savs: All the Senators have left for Washington. Sanders and Powfer applied to Gov. Toole before leaving for certificates of election, which the Governor refused to issue, having already given certificates to Clark and Maginnis. The applicants then in­ duced tho Secretary of State to attach the seal of the State to the cer­ tified proceedings of the Senate and House, which the Republicans took to Washington in place of the Governor's certificate. The Democratic certificates lack the State seal, which the Republican Secretary refused to attach. The Republicans, it is said, propose to declare the seat of McNamara, Democrat, vacant on the ground that, being a post trader, he is a government official, and 'ore ineligible to membership. This " e Senate will stand nine Repub- and seven Democrats. NGLAND IS SATISFIED** Gomes' Beply Said to Furnish a Baa's for a (settlement.

Stewart, of Prestonburg. Blackburn's vote was 105. AT Helena, Mont., after days of cau­ cusing and consultation, the Democratic House and the Democratic members of the Senate met in joint session and elect­ ed W. A. Clark and Martin Maginnis, the caucus nominees, United States Senators. This was done notwithstanding the opposition of ex-Gov. Samuel T. Hauser, who exhausted all his efforts to pre­ vent such a result. He might have suc­ ceeded had it not been for Marquis Daly. Neither Maginniq nor Clark was Mr. Daly's choice, but he informed Mr. Hauser that the members of the Legisla­ ture must stand by the action of the cau­ cus. It is believed that Gov. Toole will give Clark and Maginnis certificates and refuse them to Sanders and Power. Both sets of Senators will to to Washington and present their claims fo the United States Senate, which will decide the question. Ax Annapelis (Md.) dispatch says: In ihe Democratic caucus .Senator Wilson was renominated by acclamation to suc­ ceed nimself as United States Senator.

Washington dispatch: At 6:20 Thurs­ day evening, surrounded by every mem­ ber of his family except his hiarricd daughter, who resides in York city, Congressman Kelley. mo veteran "father of the House," breathed his last. His tnd was peaceful and quiet. Speaker Reed was notified at once and directed Holmes to take charge of the remains and conduct tne iuneral in accordance with the wishes of the family. Tho interment will bo In Phllv adclphta, where tho remains will b6 taken Saturday. Mr. Kelley was in his seventy-sixth year, and had he lived to finish his term he would have served continuously for thirty years in Congress. His death war caused by cancer of the jaw, which first, made its appearance three years ago. He was liked by everyone who knew him, and his death has called forth expres­ sions of sorrow from both Democrats and Republicans. The death was unnounced In both Houses Friday and both adjourned at once out of respect for the tf the deceased. ' William Darragh Kelley was born in Philadelphia April 12, 1814. His father died when ho was 2 years old. At th£ age of 11 Mr. Kelley began to earn hw living as an errand boy. and later served an apprenticeship to the jewelry trade. He early began to take an interest in politics, and when the deposits were re­ moved from the United States bank in Philadelphia he headed the Democratic demonstration made against the Whig capitalists. In eonsequemce of his ac­ tion in tho matter he became so un­ popular among the employers of Philadelphia that he decided to remove to Boston, to which city he went in 1834 and worked at his trade until 1839, when he returned to Philadelphia. He immediately began the study of law and in 1841 was admitted to the bar. He met with Immediate success in his profession, and in 1840 when a vacancy occurred in tho court of common pleat he was appointed to the position by Gov. Shunk. He occupied the position until 1851, when he was elected to the same place. . In 18S6 he received the Congres­ sional nomination in the Fourth Penn­ sylvania district on the Republican tick­ et, but was defeated. He resigned his seat on the bench after the election from motives of delicacy and resumed the practice of law. In 1840 ho was again nominated for Oonercss bv the Republi­ cans of the Fourth Pennsylvania district and elected, and has represented the dis­ trict continuously from that time to the present. Mr." ,Kelly began his public career as a Democrat, but left that party on the repeal of the Missouri com­ promise. During the war he was one of the earliest agitators for tho removal of McClellan from the com­ mand of the army, making a bitter at­ tack on that General's policy early in the session of 1802. In 18C.5 he favored im­ partial suffrage as a fundamental con­ dition of the restoration of local govern­ ment in the various Southern States which had rebelled. During the pro- eedings against President Johnson in 1808 Mr. Kelley voted for his impeach­ ment. In later years he has been chiefly noted for his fidelity to tho doctrine of protection and especially that portion which most diro^ly affected his con­ stituents, w4i© •WlArgcly engaged in the iron industry, and on this account he gained the sobriquet of 4,Pig-Iron" Kelley," which has become so well known all over the country. Only Two Ballots Necessary to Decide tho Matter--The Successful Contestant Thanks the' Caucus for Its Action, and the Gathering Winds Up as a Ratifica­ tion Meeting. A Columbus (O.) dispatch says: C. S. Brice took the Senatorial prize in tho Democratic Legislative caucus on the secomd ballot.

Messrs. Smith and Brown sent letters to the caucus announcing they would sup­ port the caucus nominee. The names of Calvin S. BHce, Charles W. Baker, John A. McMahon, John II. Thomas, James E. Ncal, Gen. Samuel F. Hunt and George I. Scney were put in nomination. Tho first ballot resulted: Brice, 20; Thomas, 11; McMahon, 14; Baker, 6; Hunt, 2: Neal, 2; Seney, 2; McSwecliey, 4; Geddes, 2; Outhwaite, 1. After the second call of the roll had been begun Senator Corcoran withdrew the name of Hunt and was about to make a speech, when he was closed out under the rules and voted for Brice. Changes were rapid after this and tho second ball.ot resulted: Brice, 53; Thomas, 3; McMahon, 13; Baker, 14; Seney, 2; Outhwaite, 1. Monott, on behalf of Mr. Thomas, moved that tho nomination be made unanimous, which was agreed to with a whirl and much enthusiasm. Col. Brice was brought to the caucus by a committee and the caucus converted itself into a ratification meeting. Mr. Brice Wing introduced said: -"Mr. Chairman and gentlemen of this joint caucus: I tender to you my sin­ cere and heartfelt acknowledgments for the greatest honor, it seems to me. to be possible to bo bestowed upon a man reared in Ohio in sympathy with her people and her constitution. You will not expect me here and now, at the con­ clusion of this somewhat exciting con­ test through which we have passed, to do more thai; to acknowledge to you tho weight of obligations which I bear to you and which I desire here and now to acknowledge. Whether tho issue be a temporary one or a protracted one, *1 know I can test and determine the place where I will stand and where the Democratic party ought to be.

Not only, they say, was Serpa Pinto himself ill at Moz­ ambique at the time when the revolt broke out, btot the bulk of his forces had retired from the district, leaving the natives no im­ mediate cause for their action* The government here believes that the sharp attacks on Portugal appearing in the English press are due to the machina­ tions of certain English politicians seek­ ing to force Lord Salisbury into a rup­ ture with Portugal. The authorities here are unmoved by this newspaper warfare, but await with anxiety the tone of the debate in the Honse of Commons during its approaching sittings in Feb­ ruary. Tho government has not re­ called Sennor Serpa Pinto, who only left Nyassaland to return home in order to recruit his shattered health. London cable: Tho British naval squadron is collecting at Zanzibar, and is supposed to be destined for Delagoabay. Lord Salisbury insists that Portugal must give guarantees " to prevent the recurrence of outrages in Africa on British subjects and interests, which, as the situation now is, must interfere with a diplomatic settlement of the misunder­ standing between the two countries. The British admiralty has dispatched the Enchantress with sealed orders to the Iienbow and Colossus at Gibraltar. The Portugese officials fct Quillimane, on the east coast of Africa, have forbid­ den British steamers to receive the British Consul Johnston's dispatches direct, but insist that they must pass through the Portuguese postoffice. Lisbon cable: The body of the late Empress of Brazil has been con­ signed to its final resting place in the pantheon here. The remains were brought by the train from Oporto. Doin Pedro and the family came on the same train. The King and his suite waited at the station and received them. The re­ mains were transferred from the train to the hearse amid salutations of respect from all present. The King then bade farewell to Dom Pedro and returned to the palace. Dom Pedro and his relatives then entered the state carriage and the funeral procession moved to the pan­ theon. The representatives of the Em­ perors of Germany and Austria and of the Regent of Spain, the papal nuncio, tho whole diplomatic corps, and the State officials met the cortege at the cathedral. After tho dean had pro­ nounced absolution the Imperial family followed the coffin to the vault and there heard the remainder^of the funeral ser­ vice. Madrid cable: Sagasta, having found It impossible to organize a new cabi­ net, has resigned. The Insuperable diffi­ culty was found with the protection­ ist Liberals, who demanded that revision of tho tariff should be made part of the government program.

Louisville (Ky.) dispatch: Fourteen workmen employed on the construction of the new Louisville and Jeffersonville bridge were drowned by the Sinking of the c a ss on. The dead are: THOMAS ASH. CTIA KLES CHARLES. J. JORDON. WILLIAM HYNES. THOMAS JOHNSON. JOHN KNOX. FRANK MA1IAR. Mr. McAPAMS. H. MONROE. HAMILTON MORRIS. r. NAYLOIi. THOMAS SMITH. FRANK SOAPER. ROBERT TYLOR. William Ilaynes, 40 years of age, was a resident of this city. He leaves a widow and trhree children. Knox was a gang boss and aiso resided here. Me Adams was from Hyde Park, Pa. Mahar was from New Jersey and Xaylor from Philadelphia. The rest of the dead are colored, all of Henderson, Ky. The last man out of the caisson was Frank Haddix. He was barely saved by Murray, who dragged him from wherrt he was caught waist-deep in the quicksand Taylor says he stood nearest the iron ladder by which they got iu and out of thecaifson. He heard a rumbling and there was a rush of air almost at the same instant. He jumped up the rungs of the ladder, followed by the other men. They had hardly got clear of the caisson • when the water burst through tlfe man­ hole in a surge, knocking them into the river, wlwre they were picked up. Haddix says he saw Ham Morris, who was climbing next below himself, swiftly drawn under by the sand and heard his cries for help but could do nothing. The caisson is not, wrecked, as at first supposed, but has settled down In tho bed of the stream, completely filled with sand and water. The pumping station is hard at work clearing the way to the bodies, but none will be Reached to­ night. There seems absolutely no hope for any of those caught within the caisson. John Knox, the gang boss, took charge of the work Monday. The negroes who escaped say he had them dig too deep be­ fore letting the caisson settle, and the digging was too close to the shoe of the caisson. Just before the accident Knox gave some order to Robert Baldwin, the keeper in charge of the upper door to the exit. Baldwin then opened this door, and the compressed air which kept out the river rushed out, letting in the stream* The men say they were working in an ugly quicksand at the time. The caisson was about 40 feet by 20 and built of timbers 12 inches square. It was protected by a coffer-dam, but tho river is very high and the pressure of the water very great.

Col. Brice was followed by Baker, Hunt, McMahon, and other unsuccessful competitors. They all accepted the sit­ uation with good grace and called for a united support to the nominee. During the speaking Mrs. Brice, her sister, and a friend came in to witness her husband's triumph. There is less bitterness shown at the conclusion of the present fight than hi any that has been waged for the Sena- torship in the last twelve year®. The after meeting amounted to a joll"jeation, and all signs of a bolt seemed to have disap­ peared. One of the most pleasant epi­ sodes of the after meeting was tho finished talk of Gen. Hunt, who gave a brief story of his acquaintance with Brice from boyhood. The committee appointed to bring Mr. Thomas before the caucus was unable to find him. He is probably tho most thoroughly disap­ pointed man among the candidatos. Kniffln and Miss. Purccil Released. Trenton (N. J.) difpatch: Dr. Arthur S.

Plan for a Road Through Central Amer­ ica and the Isthmus. • A Washington dispatch says: There is a movement on foot now--and the pan- American Congress is made tho field of agitation--to build a continuous railroad system beginning at the southermost point of Mexico reached by rail from the United S-tates through Central America and the isthmus and running well down into South America. Mexico will take care of her share of the enterprise and the South American States involved will take care of theirs. In Central America, however, the governments are too poor to do anything except cede large tracts of land. They look to see our Congress supply the money by giving the govern­ ment's guarantee to the bonds issued, on the strength of tho whole scheme being engineered by American financiers and statesmen. large number of bills were introduced in both houses. Congressman Bynum.of Indiana, in­ troduced a resolution for the appointment of a epecial committee to investigate the course of' the United States District Attorney at Indiauan- oliB, especially with reference to the Dudlev cases. IK the Senate/on the 7th Inst., Mr. Voorheea offered a preamble and resolu'a «n reciting the newspaper report that Mr. Chambers, tho United States District Attorney at Indian­ apolis, had interfered in his official capacity to prevent the arrest of W. W. Dudley on a charge of feloniously violating the election lawa of Indiana at the last Presidential election, and directing the Attorney General to report what • instructions the Department of Justice had is­ sued to Chambers on the subject, and to furnish copies of the correspondence. Ho asked that • the resolution go over one day, when he would submit gome remarks upon it, which was agreed to. Mr, Morgan addressed the Bui.ate on the subject of the bill heretofore introduced by Mr. Butler to provide for the emigration of pt-raonn of color from the Southern States. He closed by declaring it to be the'duty of this • nation, which once brought the negro in the • chains of slavery from Africa, to assist • him to return there and aid in balld- ing up the civilization, enlightenment. and wealth of his native land. The Senate than went into executive session and shortly alter adjourned. In the House Mr. McComaa, of Maryland, offered a resolution that, the House resolve itself into committor of the whole for the consideration of the District of Columbia- appropriation bill, the committee to be govern­ ed i)y the rules of the last Congress. Mr. _ Breckinridge raised the question of' consideration against the resolution. The Hpeaker ruled that the question of considera­ tion could not be liaised against the resolu­ tion because the resolution waa in the nature of a motion regulating the business of the House. Mr. Breckinridge appealed from the de­ cision, aud yielded the floor to Mr. Carlisle, of ' Kentucky, who vigorously attacked the Speak­ er's ruling. After several other speeches had been made a vote was taken and the decision of ' the Speaker sustained--yeas, 133 ; nays, 124. All the Republicans voted to sustain Speaker Reed'B ruling and all the Democrats against it. Tho House then took up the Districo of Co­ lumbia biil and spent the remainder of the' afternoon on its consideration and then ad­ journed. AFTER some routine business in the Senate > on the 8th inst., Mr. Voorheea called up the> resolution offered by him the previous day in relation to the alleged interference by Mr. Chambers, the United States District Attorney • at Indianapolis, to prevent the arrest of W. W. Dudley on a charge of violating the election laws of Indiana, and proceeded to address the Senate. Ho spoke or tho crimo as having inflicted an indelible Btain upon the memora­ ble election and impeached the integrity of the political result that followed. It was hig}} time, Mr. Voorhees Bald, that this episode R lib bid be fully understood by the- whole people, and that the proper degree of responsibility should be assigned to the instru­ ment by whom it was perpetrated. Mr. Voor- hees sent tq, the clerk's desk and had read the notorious "blocks of five" letter. At the con­ clusion of Mr. Voorhees' speech a number of unimportant measures were considered, and the Hen ate then went into executive session and. made the following confirmations: Owen A. Luckenbach, Postmaster, Bethlehem, Pa.; John D. Delille, Consul to Bristol. In the House the Speaker laid before that body a letter from the Secretary of the Treasury recouimend- iug that the estimated appropriation of $150,000 for the public building at fc>an Francisco be- made in a deficiency appropriation bill. The House then went into committee of the whole, Mr. Burrows, of Michigan, taking the chair, for the further consideration of the District of Co­ lumbia appropriation bill. The afternoon waa spent in the discussion of the bill, and that por­ tion of it relating to the laying of overhead electric wires underground waa passed, and the. House adjourned. *, IN the Senate on the 9th inst. the Vice Presi­ dent presented a communication from Attor­ ney General Miller in response to the resolu­ tion adopted by the Senate the previous day. The Attorney General declares that thPre have been no instructions given to District Attorney Chambers on the subject of the arrest of W. W. Dudley, and that 110 communication whatever has passed between the Department, of Justice and the District Attorney in relation to the matter.
