In a Deadlock.
The legislature of Nebraska eo.u
vened in regular session at noon
Tuesday. The senate was unable to
organize, the members of the three
parties voting solidly for their own
candidate for secretary. Two ses
sions were held without result. In
the house a great uproar ensued
when the oecretary of state called
the name of Norton instead of
Kruse, but Norton took the seat.
The democrats joined with the in
dependents and gave them the or
ganization. Gall in was elected
speaker and Eric Johnson chief
clerk. The committee on creden
tials appointed by the new organi
zation reported against Norton re
publican and Kruse the independ
ent was seated.
At 12 o'clock Lieutenaut Governor
Thomas J Majors, took the chair
and began arranging the docu
ments on his desk. Mr. Pirtle,
bearing fcthe votes of an indepen
dent caucus nomination for the
post of secretary, seated himself at
Major's right and appeared to be
ready to answer to the call of duty.
The senators took their seats and
the spectators in the gallery settled
down to a condition of quiet ex
pecteucy. There was not the
slightest bint of excitement. It was
supposed that the senate would go
into a deadlock, and this promise
was fulfilled in the most quiet and
dignified way imaginale.
At 12:15 the lieutenant governor
arose and said that as the hour
Gxed by the constitution for the as
sembling of the senate had arrived
the body would come to order. He
then called upon Chaplain Ger-
herdt, who officiated two years ago,
to offer prayer. The members arose
and the chaplain offered an ernest
plea for Divine guidance in the
work of (he session.
Senator Darner of Dawson then
nominated C. II. Pirtle as tenipory
secretary. The nomination was
seconded by Senator Dysart.
Senator Everett nominated Frank
Wilson, and Lobeck rose to offer a

report, which recited in substance
as follows: First, that the supreme

proper way. Casper said that it
was a political fight and he pro
posed to treat it in a political way.
