Washington, Jan. 5. Secretary of
State John W. Foster will lay down the
portfolio of state on February 1st, and
leave for Europe. His objective point
will be Paris, where the court of arbi
tration in the- Behring sea controversy
will hold their sessions. Some' months
ago, before Mr. Foster was appointed to
succeed Mr. Blaine, the president had
selected ' him to represent the United
States as special council before the court
of arbitration. It was . expected . after
Mr. Foster became secretary of state
that another gentlemarfwould be chosen
as special counsel. The president, how
ever, feels that Mr. Foster's experience
fits him especially to discharge tbe
duties of the place, and that at his sug
gestion Mr. Foster will leave the state
department in time to attend the first
meeting of the board. . From the time of
his departure until the 4th of March
next Mr. Wharton will diecbarge the
duties of secretary, a work for which his
long connection with the department
has admirably fitted him. Mr. Foster
will be accompanied to Europe Ty Mrs.
Foster, and alter the court of arbitration
has closed its sittings the secretary and
his wife will travel oh the continent for
some months, returning to the United
States some time during the coming
autumn. ' " - .
. Hay Cheapen Electricity.
Philadelphia, Jan. 5. Special.
Two French scientists have recently dis
covered an entirely new property of
Faraday's disk, and the result may be
an important improvement in the dy
namo. It will be remembered thatiFar
aday discovered the principle of the
dynamo when he attached one end of
the wire to the center of a copper disk
revolving between the poles of a magnet
and the other end at the circumference.
A current of electricity was thus pro
duced on the wire, and this simple ex
periment resulted in the commercial
dynamo. Instead of the Faraday disk,
the French scientists employ tin plates
of a certain constitution not made pub
lic. These plates are composed, in the
direction of their thickness, of a very
magnetic and highly conducting metal,
and aP so placed that the lines of force
of the field of the magnet are perpendic
ular to this direction of thickness. Thus
it is said, the flow of induction which
proceeds from the north pole of the mag
net is divided into several sheets of par
allel lines, which are ver- close together
and which only traverse the magnetic
portions of the bimetallic conductors.
The discoverers of Tfels property con
structed a small machine employing this
principle, and it was found that the
available energy of the machine in
creases at a rate which is practically
proportional to the height of the con
ductors. The results achieved are re
markable, and are believed to indicate a
valuable discovery of great commercial

Republican Victory in Colorado.
Denvee, Jan. 4. The republicans
have organized the house, and will prob
ably control the senate. In the house,
Piatt Wickes, after a bitter fight, was
chosen temporary speaker by a vote of
thirty-three to thirty-two. Amnions
will be' chosen permanent speaker by
the same vote. The result was achieved
over a democraticpopulist combination.
The senate adjourned without action.
The Deadlock In Nebraska.
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 4! The deadlock
in the senate remains unbroken. Frank
Wilson,' republican, was chosen tem
porary secretary, but it was a pre
arranged plan to make a show of pro

seated and sworn in, after which they
adjourned till this afternoon. The house
continued the work of organizing, the

Populists Not In It.
"Topeka, Kan., Jan. 4. The supreme
court this morning decided two of the
four legislative contests argued yester
day, one" in Jackson county, the other
in Republic county, both against the
populists. A further hearing will be
had in the two other cases. If James
Wilson, independent republican, will
act with the party, the republicans can
organize the house, even if one of the
undecided cases go against them. The
republicans claim he will do so.
After The Detectives.
Washington, Jan. 4. Senator Chand
ler introduced a bill today making it un
lawful for any body of men numbering
10 or more to assemble, drill or bear
arms as a military body unless called for
by the properly authorized civil or mili
tary officers. It makes it the duty of the
president to disband and disperse any
such organization. .This bill is aimed at
the Pinkertons and semi-military anar
chist organizations.' Senator Chandler
also introduced a bill to restrict immi
gration. It designates four new classes
of excluded persons, provides for infor
mation regarding immigrants, the issue
of certificates by a United States consul,
requirement for more cubic space for im
migrants "aboard vessels, and a new
naturalization clause requiring 60 days'
notice of the application.

Mr. Villard is the'latest democrat to
make application for membership in the
society of. gentlemen who don't want
cabinet positions., Mr. Villard does not
think it .would be well for him to go into
Cleveland's cabinet. Mr. Villard should
not think entirely of himself ; be should
give some thought to his railroad and
its stockholders. Nobody would be so
glad to see Mr. Villard in the Cleveland
cabinet as the stockholders of his road,
whose property has been depreciating

Special to Thb Chronicle.) ,
Chicago, Jan. 5. It 'is said there ia
the substance of fact in the story which
comes from Spokane respecting the
whereabouts of William B. Tascott
wanted in this city fofc the murder of
millionaire Snell. Full particulars have
been sent for, and the narrative is sub
stantially this, as told by Jules Beauvais,
a well-known and reliable mining man,
now in Spokane from the Slocan coun
try, where he is developing some fine
properties. Last summer he was pros
pecting in Alaska, and states with
every indication of truthfulness that in
Sitka, Juneau and other places he saw
and conversed with William B. Tascott.
who is accused of the murder of Snell,
the Chicago millionaire. "I knew bim
in Chicago," said Mr. Beauvais, "and I
can not possibly be mistaken. He has
changed very little in appearance, only
he is slightly more - rugged now and
shows some signs of dissipation." Mr.
Beauvais related further that Tascott
has been in Alaska nearly all the time
since the murder, and makes no pre
tense of concealing . his identity. He
has made a little money at times pros
pecting and dabbling in mining proper
ties, but during the past summer he
was hard up and drinking heavily. Mr.
Beauvais gave him money on several
occasions, Tascott stating that the mys
tery of the murder will soon be cleared
up and then he will have plenty of
money. He dislikes to talk about the
murder, but when questioned on the
subject answers without hesitation, but
quickly changes the drift of conversa
tion into other channels. The theory
prevailing in Alaska is that Tascott did
not kid Snell, but that the murder was
perpetrated by some one of wealth and
influence, and he having been of a ro- -mantic
and adventurous disposition ac
cepted a bribe to take upon his own
shoulders the odium of another's crime.
An officer will be sent to Alaska from
Portland to bring Tascott to Oregon,
where an officer from this city will meet
them and bring the prisoner here for a
trial, which may prove to be the greatest
sensation of modern times. Detective
Dyer, who probably knows more than
anybody else regarding the murder o
Snell, says the real murderer hired
Tascott to go with him to rob the Snell
residence; that Snell heard them and
came down-stairs, and that the man
mentioned killed bim. ' Tascott, be de
clares, could have been arrested many
times over if he really was wanted.
