The State Senate has missed its op

Philadelphia,;; Jan. 23. Dr.
Leonard Pierson, dean of the veter
inary departmeht'of the University
of Pennsylvania, today announced
that experiments covering a period
of more than two years had proved
conclusively' -that -'cattle- may be
rendered immune from tuberculo
sis by vaccination.- The "experi
ments, vr. rearson-stated,1 were
conducted by Dr. S. H . Gilliland
and himself, j The vaccination con
sisted of injecting into the - vein of
the animal a small a quantity of a
preparation V)f tubercle ? baocillij
nonvirulent for cattle. ' This pro
cedure was repeated several i times
with gTadaallyrr ascending ; quanti
ties." Thelmmediate effect '-'was to
produce a passing fever- following
each injection, which' did not 1 seri
ously annoy the animal. ' ' - 7 '
To prove the efficacy of this treat
ment, four healthy animals .were
seized, and two - were . vaccinated.
The four were inoculated with vir
ulent Tubercle baccilli. At the ex
piration of nearly a year the inocu
lated cattle were killed. . The two
animals that had . been vaccinated
were perfectly sound, while the un
vaccinated animals were extensive
ly tubercular. -; Dr. Pearson stated
that he intends devoting his ener
giee to perfecting the method used
in the vaccination. -.

Denver, Jan. 24.-
bers of the senate and house of the
Fourteenth assembly of Colorado,
cast their ballots, . 51 in b umber
for Henry M. Teller to succeed
himself 4as Un td States senator,
and he was; declared elected by
President W. H. Adams, who pre
sided. .The result was reached -, af
ter a week of.untiring effort on - the
part of the democratic leaders, dur
ing which many rumors of treach
ery had been circulated, and many
delays had occurred by , reason j of
the absence of rollcall of different
members of the assembly. , .' 7.'
. Since Monday morning the dem
ocratic; branch of the assembly had
been in practically contlnuoua ,sae
Bion, and since Wednesday at noon
the joint session of the democratic
members of both houses has been
continuous. . From yesterday morn
ing all the democrats were ready to
cast their ballots for Mr. Teller ex
cept Representative M, J. Madden,
of Denver. The absence : of Mad
den was unaccounted for. until this
afternoon, when it was learned that
he was at home ill with grip, and
fhad been forbidden to leave his
house by his physician. In epWe
of his condition, however, he decid
ed to attend this, evening, and at
the hour named was in his seat and
cast his vote for Mr Teller. There
either house present, and the legali
ty of the election is net admitted
by republican leaders. ; . ; -The
session today had been une
ventful, and when, at 4:45,J Repre
sentative .Madden- came into the
senate: chamber, he was greeted
with a burst of applause. This was
renewed when, on the rollcall for a
ballot, be cast his vote
ler, and when the call was finished
and the result announced the cheer
ing was prolonged.
Senator : Teller was - escorted to
the platform and expressed his
thanks for the patient zeal of hia
friends, which had won for him a
victory. He was elected Bix years
ago by a practically unanimous
vote of the legislature, and he dis
claimed the belief that any act of
his s'nce then had turned ; the ' sen
timent of the people of Colorado
against him. ; , n ,: ,
United States Senator Thomas
M. Patterson followed in a speech
in which, he declared that the : de
mocracy of the state is now more
closely united than ever before. He
declared that, he did not ..think it
likely that .a contest would be
made against Senator Teller. .f ;
1 ;These speeches were followed, by
congratulatory remarks from f 5x7
Governors Adams and Thomas 0.
J.' Hughes, J., and T, J. O'Donnell,
all of whom have been talked of, as
candidates for the senate, and Dem
ocrat'c State ; Chairman ! Milton
Smith.. The joint session then adjourned-'
,- j ' r V - ..
While ; the election of Senator
Teller by the democratic portion of
the general, assembly .has : removed
one element of uncertainty, .of; the
situation, it has not, by any means,
cleared the atmosphere. The elec
tion is declared illegal by the re
publican leaders, and the, dual sen
ates are still maintained. . ;
The democratic session ' resumed
its sessien immediately after the ad
journment of the joint session, and
it3 : leaders announced that; they
would continue to occupy the sen
ate chamber until Monday morning
at lea'et. ; , . : ' . i
' As a result of a conference : be
tween republican senators and rep
resentatives of the two . factions, a
proposition will be submitted in the
House Monday to recognize the re
publican senate as regular.- The
Wolcott med hope that .a sufficient
number of anti-Wolcott republicans
will join them in support of this
proposition to secure its adoption.
In that event n is proposed to hold
a joint session cf republicans next
week to, vote .upon a .United ;. States
senator. . Should, they succeed . io
agreeing upon a. candidate, he will
contest the seat with Mr. Teller. 1

' 'Denver, Janv 25. The 'climax In ' :-'
the 'senatorial fight in 1 Colorado
came tonight, when ex-Senator :E.'
W Wolcott, the candidate of - the
so-called ''stalwart" wing of the re-
publican party, announced his prac- ;
tical withdrawal from ' any ; further
contest and urged the people of CoU
orado to accept the situation as it
stands by the election yesterday of
Senator Harry M. Teller to succeed ;
himself by the joint session of the ;
democratic senators and re present a- '
tives. The - announcement "was '
made in a signed' statement in
which Mr. Wolcott charges certain " -republican
leaders associated with
the anti-Wolcott forces in the re- "
pttblicap laoks :;jwitktrea1cherT'.de
libefate and continuous, although -ha
disposes of others of the ' anti- r
Wolcott crowd by characterizing :
them as "dupes?' of the main con
spirators. He refers to the refusal
of the anti-Wolcott members of the '
House to unseat : the democratic-
members of Arapahoe county and
calls it "a crime against the repub-
Tel-pican party and justice."
Mr. Wolcott declares that Lieu -:
tenant Governor Haggott, when he
withdrew from the senate chamber
and with less than a dozen senators,. '
whose seats were undisputed, organ
ized another senate, was assured of
support . by his " associates : in . the -.
state government, which support .
"fell away from him," however. ,, , ,
-Continuing, Mr. Wolcott says:..
'.'There were thres joint sessions
of the general assembly., . .At the . ,
last one 51 democrats voted for
Teller. No other joint session bad t
been heldvand no republicans had
voted in a joint , session.' , The elec- -'- .
tion of Mr. :-Teller was; tinctured . .
with' fraud; first, in the trickery, of ; ;
adjournment by :the democrats 1 of "; ' t
rthe House: second, in the arbitrary" ; '
auu irauuuieuii expulsion ui iiwn le
gally elected senators. u There' '' isj '
however, now no other legally coil-3 :':f
stituted sepate,' as might have been t
but for this , conspiracy (jreierring 'f'
to the alleged combination between ;Ti '
democrats and anti-Wolcott repub-, f
licans), arid it is now too "late to- -
undo the wrong,-and by unseating- '
the fraudulently elected' members'' '
from" Arapahoe f county insure -
the valid election of ; a republican ?
senator. . 7; ' ' ) . ' .
' "Wicked and unforgivable as) isj
the wrong done the republican par- L
ty, yet from the point of viewof the'
highest citizenship there is but one "
thing to be done arid that is for the "
people to accept the deplorable sit--""
uation and the Governor of the state 1
to issue a certificate of election to- -Mr.
Teller." . v ; ; - ' '
Speaking of Mr.. Teller, - the ex- 1
senator says that in no sense was
he a party to the frauds above re
ferred to, although he was the ben- '
eficiary. He" pays the following
tribbute to the senator-elect:
' "He has served Colorado nearly,
a generation at .; Washington and
whatever may be our regret that he
no longer marches in the 1 ranks of
the party which has so highly hon
ored him-, every citizen of the state
wishes him health " and ' strength
and balieves that he is single-minded
in his devotion to the material
interests of the state." ' ' ' ' "
