It Promises to Be an Intense
ly Exciting Session.
No Party Has a Majority In Either
of the Two Housfes-CblcaKO
Society Shocked Over an
Aliened Insult.
I.INOU.N, Neb., Dec. !!!. -The com
ing legislative HeKHion promises to
J ie intensely exciting. For the first
time in the history of the state no
party ban a majority in either of the
two bonnes, and therefore no party
van organise either of the two
house without making a combine
with the members of another party.
There will be plots and counter
plots, combined and countercom
bines. There will be contents and
investigations. There will be
mnashed slates and wrecked hopes.
The session promises to be a light
nil along the line from start to fin
ish, with the ablest political brains
and the most shrewd political strat
egists directing the contest.
The irrepressible conflict is to be
gin with the opening of the session
next Tuesday. The advance guard
is already on the ground, and by
Sunday night the chiefs of the war
ring clans and a good many of their
followers will be in their respective
The constitution requires the leg
islature to convene on the first
Tuesday aftr the first Monday in
lanuary, but it is decidedly doubt
ful whether the legislature will be
fully organized by the end of the
week. There are too many compli
cations in the way. It is a 11-15-1.1
puzzle, and the question is, who
can manage to get most of the
pigs in the pen? The senatorial
contest conies into play from the
outset and blocks the way of the
railroad gang from fusing the men
with brass collars regardless of
party. For instance, it will be no
trouble fo get Jim North to vote
against any and all railroad regu
lating bills but Senator North
can't be induced to vote for a re
publican pro torn. The senator
from l'latte has his eye cocked for
the biggest sugarplum in the Ne
braska orchard within the gift of
Grover. lie wants to succeed John
Peters after the 4th of March and
that makes a heap o'dilTerence, as
lTncle Hilly I'axton would say
when he sized up a bunch of Texas
What is true of North is true of
nearly all democrats with the pos
sible exception of Senator Habcock
of Douglas. Ho does not look for
fodder at the federal crib so long as
he remains superintendent of the
stock yards.
At this moment nobody can tell
who will get on top in the melee
over the speakership. If a republi
can caucus is held the enhances are
ten to one in favor of Oakley, but
there will be no house caucus at
least not as long as it remains a
railroad jughandle. A very re
spectable number of persons will
positively decline to be caught in
caucus trap. They are detirmined
to break up the oilroom gang at all
hazards. They know they have no
show in the caucus and therefore
prefer to tight, in the open field,
where they can dictate terms.
Kumors are almost as thick now
us the smoke will be in the hotel
corridors by next Monday. It is
rumored that Tom Majors held a
consultation with Oakley, Jensen
and the Lincoln contingent last
night with a view to withdrawing
them from the race and putting up
a new man for speaker who would
be favorable to either Crounse or
Majors for United States senator.
It is pretty well settled that Tom
Majors will take up his headquar
ters at the capital city with his man
Friday, Walt Seeley, as his confi
dential negotiator.
It is rumored that the democratic
and independent politicians have
been in session all day trying to ef
fect a fusion.
Jt is settled that Senator Paddock
and (.iovernor-elect Gronnse will
have their quarters at the Lincoln.
It is rumored that the counter
coinbinejjiade up of five republi
cans uud eleven independents has
signed an agreement binding the
members to support a maximum
rate bill; a bill for the abolition of
railroad passed hud a bill to repeal
the law creating a state board of
It is pretty well settled that ex
Senator Koonz is to be bounced
from his sinecure as secretary of
the state board of transportation,
and that his. soft job is to be given
to Tom Henton or Charles Magoon.
It is rumored that Kric Johnson,
ex-chief clerk of the house, has of
fered two votes from the ranks of
the independents to the republicans
for his re-election as chief clerk of
the uexthouse. These two votes

Chicago, 111., Dec. 2'.). Chills ran
up and down the aristocratic spines
of Chicago society persons today,
when they saw on a heavy calendar
for lS'.tt the well-known picture of
Mrs. Totter Palmer, president of
the board of women commissioners
of the Columbian exposition. Mrs.
Palmer'a picture has nppeared in
some Chicago newspaper every day
for a year, but no one dreamed that
it would decorate a vulgar beer
"ad." Lithographically, the adver
tisement, which is an lSxW-inch
calendar, is a grand success. It is
in the most gorgeous, blazing
colors. On the top is a view in per
spective of the woman's building,
with the lake in the foreground and
gonodolas floating lazily upon it.
lleneath this is an oval picture of
Mrs. Palmer, with a stand of Hags
of fill nations on each side. Her
name, with the added title; "Presi
dent of the Woman's Department,
World's Columbian Exposition," is
placed beneath the picture, for fear
it should be mistaken for some one
else. In a few days every saloon in
town which deals with this particu
lar brewery will display behind its
bar this interesting picture. Al
ready many have hung them up for
the calendar reference.
Mrs. Palmer was shocked beyond
measure when she saw the picture,
and Mr. Palmer was frantic.
"Did I give any permission for
that?" he shouted. "No, sir, I did no
such a thing. An unwarrantable
liberty has been taken. Give me
the names of the firms and I will
put a stop to it at once. I will en
join every party in the transaction.
If they do not immediately stop the
issuance of these things I will be
gin suit at once.
The brewery president said crow
nod heads in the old country did
not object to such advertising, and
he thought Mrs. Palmer was too
"It's a great lot to make a fuss
about." said one of the lithograph
ers. "We have used the presidents
and vice presidents, Mrs. Cleveland
and others."

Sadie Griffith, Mrs. Kendall's sister,

ing instantly. A servant in the
house escaped.

ated from escaping natural gas.
Mrs. Kendall's room was heated by
a natural gas stove, and it is
thought that the gas asphyxiated
Mrs. Kendall, her baby and her sis
tor before it ignited. This theory
is strengthened by the fact that no
scroamos or groans wore hoard
from the victims of the (lames. The
money loss is small.

Some Sensational Stories.
A Nebraska Town all Tore Up Over

Couple Compelled to
Leave Town.
Washixctox, 1). C, Doc. 31. As
sistant Secretary Lambertson was
at his desk bright and early this
morning disposing of accumulated
business. Later he conducted
Indian Commissioner T. J. Morgan
and party through the treasury de
partment. The assistant secretary
was soon this afternoon and showed
the newspaper clipping insinuat
ing that he was a covert candidate
for the Nebraska senatorship. Mr.
Lambertson road it over and said:
"I think 1 1uiow the source of this
item, which is at once antagonistic
to me personally and to my friend
Senator Paddock. It is utterally
and absolutely false in statement
and in inference. I will not dignify
it by discussing it. I taw t he pub
lication last night and wrote to
Senator Paddock concerning it."
Here Secretary Lambertson called
to his clerk to bring him his letter
book and said: "You may print the
follovvingoxtract from my letter to
Senator Paddock. "1 heartily wish
you deserved success. You doubt
loss have seen in some of the news
papers my name mentioned in con
nection with the senatorship. It
was done, of course, without my
knowledge or consent. I am sin
cerely devoted to you and am as
anxious as any of jour devoted
friends to see you returned to the
senate, whore you have done such
faithful and unremitting work for
our state. If I can be of any assist
ance to you I will be glad to render
it on a moment's notice."
Assistant Secretary Lambertson
said that ho would make no present
changes in his department, retain
ing his clerk and stenographer,
who, by their familiarity with the
work of the office, wore for the time
being quite essential.
Sioux City, la., Dec. 30. The lit
tle town Of Homer in Dakota county
Nebraska has developed a sensa
tion. About a month ago Kev. B.
S. Masten went to Homer from this
city to take the pastorage of the
Methodist church in that place. He
boarded with a family named Harris
fcoon after he had settled down in
the place there were numerous and
unsavory rumors put in circulation
that wore anything but compli
mentary to Masten. The result was
that President Elder Maxwell of
Omaha made an investigation into
Mastou's conduct, and last Sunday
suspended him from the ministry,
saying that it would do him no
good to make inquiry as to the
cause etc., as there was reason for
taking the action and he could not
hope to be reinistated.
Tuesday Masten took out a li
cense to marry Miss Harris, the
daughter of his landladly. The cit
izens of Homer learned of this and
also ascertained that Masten was to
be married. They organized a
posse and started for the Harris
home with the avowed intention of
tarring and feathering the minister
and thus preventing the marriage.
Masten had spunk and got a gun,
with which he succeeded in stand
ing off the mob. They retreated to
points of safety behind haystacks,
etc., and from their points of van
tage informed Masten that if the
wedding came off next day they
would return and carry out their
purpose, and ride him out of town
on a rail.
The wedding has not taken place
and Homer citizens say they have
been assured that it will not. It has
since been learned that Homer peo
ple also warned the Dakota City
minister who was to perform the
ceremony to keep away from
llomerand that he took the hint.
