Wln'u ho left public sentiment seemed
to bo witislied with tho recount of
Poi Hand and tho county where that
city is located. Tho total population
is now placed at about 320,000,
which will give tho stato an
additional member of Congress,
and this is the main point iu tho
controversy. Leland says he is op
posed to a recount of the stato for two
reasens: "First that the figures as
now ascertained give tho slate all tho
population which it is entitled to."
Second, that the reasons which justi
fied the recount of Portland do not
apply to the entire state and a general
recount is not warranted by tho facts.
Tho secretary of tho iuterior has tho
matter still under tonsideration, but
it seems highly probablo that tho con
clusion reached will bo adverse to or
dering a recount of the stato.

from Iowa. Sweeney was greeted
with applause on his unexpected ap
pearance. Meanwhile Cheadlo, of In

in favor of tho Democratic contestant,
Mr. Veuable. hnd walked out of the
House into the lobby and settled him

which was cut in many places. Trains
were stopped and employes driven

Tqngshal colliery is stopped and
