Oltmpia, Jan. 24. The following dis patcli was today sent to President Har rison and Secretary Foster by Turners managers : On the 22d day of last De cember, you sent to the United States Senate the name of Fredrick J. Grant, of Seattle, for envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary to Bolivia. Special haste was made by the senate, which went into executive session, the judiciary committee having agreed not to insist on an examination into the re quirements of the candidate. Haste was made in confirming the appoint ment due to the fact that had.it been de layed Mr. Grant could not have entered upon his duties before January 4, to which date congress on the 22d of De cember had adjourned. The Associated Press dispatches of that date said : 'Mr. Grant will qualify at once and proceed to Bolivia, by way of England, where some matters involv ing the three governments must be set tled as soon as possible.' The Telegram goes on to tell how Grant, 'instead of going to Bolivia, is at Olympia, and de plores the unusual spectacle of a diplo matic minister of the government acting as manager in a senatorial contest. The dispatch closes: "You are looked upon as a model chief executive of the nation, and have it in yonr power to stop such scandalous proceedings. Will you doit? and save the republicans in this state from total disruption?" : 1 ' ' ONE SENATOR CHOSEN. Toptfca'i Doable Header Oljrmpia'i Scandal Nebraska Cautious. Portland, Jan. 25.- Special. Re ports from Topeka show that when both the house and senate met at noon to ballot for United States senator, the situation was very complicated. The populists and democrats had not even decided on a caucus nominee. The first ballot In the republican house resulted : .Ady, rep.. 62; four others scattering. The populist house voted as follows: Breidenthal, pop., 17; Coburn, 11 ; Dos ter, pop., 13; Martin, fusion-dem., 9; King, pop., 3 ; others scattering among 14 candidates. In the senate the vote was as follows : Ady . 15, Doster 10, Breidenthal 6, Martin 6, others scatter ing; no choice. Lincoln reports are to the effect that in order to be sure the statutes are com plied with the legislature yesterday took two ballots for United States senator. Each body balloted in its own House by common consent to avoid a possibility of future trouble. The' joint ballot was taken at noon without change from yes terday in. the relative strength of the candidates. Power received 55, Pad dock 25, Myers 13, Boyd 3, Ryan 2, re mainder scattering. It is thought, since the caucus last night, that John MaKCn, a democrat and a lawyer of Topeka, who was nom inated by the populist caucus for sena tor on the fourteenth ballot will be elected, as members of the populist house and populist senators, as well as the democrats, will support him. A Carson dispatch announces that Hon. Wm. M. Stewart was re-elected to the United States senate by the Nevada legislature vesterdav. He was the silver party candidate and received the unani moils vote. Ex-Congressman Bartine was the republican candidate. The "kodac" party have not yet elected Allen at Olympia.

Something; Additional About its Con nection with the Oreron Pacific. Gulesburg, 111., Daily Mail. J i A prominent man said today that within two years trains would be run ning over .the" Chicago, Burlington & Quincy road to Portland. The road is graded from Merino, Wyo., to the Idaho line, and will be extended to Boise next year. lrom Boise the road will run west to the Snake river where a spur wil! be run up to connect with the Hunt system in Washington, while the' main line will run west and connect with the Oregon Pacific. Burlington's coming to the coast, however does not depend upon its purchase of the Oregon Pacific. If the Burlington does not purchase the Hunt system, it will be built through Washington, connecting with Tacoma, Lake Park, and Columbia river, surveys for the extension of which are now being made in Cascade mountains. This line is considered- the Burlington interest and will give this road an outlet to fuget sound. " - Very Wise titeu. Union Journal. The Oregon legisla ture shows great wisdom in appointing a committee to visit the Walla Walla jute mill, investigate its cost, value to the state, so far as earning capacity and as a means of the healthy employment of convicts is concerned. Oregon could well afford to appropriate $200,000 or $250,000 for a jute mill establishment, which would furnish employment for 400 men, save the farmers of the state a cent on each sack used in the state's grain fields and would at the same time earn at least five per cent, on the invest ment. - Would be Popular. Seattle Telegraph. If some member of the' present legislature wants to do something that will gain the applause of every man, woman and child in the state, let him move a resolution to the effect that the legislature memorialize congress, praying for a constitutional amendment to provide for the direct election of United States senators by popular vote.

Speculation Among The Leading Politi cians as to McComas. NO NOMINATION EXPECTED SOON. It Might Lead to Complication, An tagonism, And Final Defeat. THE LEHAB CIRCUIT RECOGNIZED. The Circuit Embraces Six Leading And. Prominent Statea of The Soutl Other News. WASHisciwrCJan. 25. Special! The sudsWTT and unexpected death of Hon. L. Lamar, associate justice of the supreme court, at his home in Macon, Ga., on the 23d, has already caused . much speculation as to his successor. In a conversation on the subject, last evening Congressman Moore of Texas, said : "The' particular person who will be chosen is not considered so much as the question whether Harrison will make a nomination to fill the vacancy or leave the matter open for President-elect Cleveland's action. It is certain in view of the 'attitude of certain democratic senators toward the nomination of Mc Comas, to be judge of the court of the district of Columbia, that a nomination by Harrison would be antagonized to the end of the session, and defeated if pos sible. In view of that fact, it is probable the president will not care to provoke a. bitter controversy and will, take no action ; but it can be said he will come to- no determination upon the matter, and will not consider it even for several days at least, should lie decide to make a nomination. The probabilities are a member of the United States judiciary within Justice Lamar's old circuit will be honored by the appointment. This circuit embraces ' Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas." . Work In Salem. Salem, Jan. 25. Special. There ia nothing of importance to send yon.
