A Lively Section.
CntTtsxE, Wye, Jan. IS. The List
day's mmwIoo of the Wyoming legbtla-
turo rloKodnhb morning at 6 o'clock
after an exciting all night seseion. A
big fight was tua'le on the question of
excluding the bible from the public
The fight against reading the bible in
the schools was led by Representative
Brown, who professes bhuddism. He
carried the question in the house, but
in the senate nearly all the preachers
of the city lobbied so effectively that
the bill was killed.
Toe bill making a legislative appor-
u-mment was almost equally divided In
its support and opposition. Lobbying
for tad against it went on until 4
o'clock this morning, when its sup
porters, who had the speaker with
them, thought they could carry it
The speaker ruled the bill to be on its
final passage. The opposition claimed
it had nc been read a second time and
coma not be put on final passage ex
ccpt by suspension of the rules, requir
ing a two-thirds majority. A dozen
members were on their feet at once.
The speaker called upon the tergeant-
atrartns to preserve order, but no one
paid any attention to him. A call was
made for a reading of the endorsements
on we out. wnen tne cierij read one
which was "read second time,' the up
roar was renewed and members jumped
on their desks and shouted that the en
dorseaent was false. Representative
Baker, who led the opposition to the
bill, rushed to the desk of the speaker,
snatched the bill from his hand and
rushed with it about the hall, showing
the members that the endorsement
"read second t W had been iater
llneated and was newly -written, the
ink being fresher than the endorse-
ments following it

The Real Facts of lbs Case From
Assistant Sergeant-at-Arms of
Ex Lieutenant Governor afeikiejofea on
bring Interviewed by the Bee correspondent
"It is the eloeest place I ever sot into la mj
life, and the experience was anything- but
arreeable. I was eeruin I was rl-ht and
was determined to stand tny frauDd, bat any
mistake would bavs been fatal. I got wind
that tbey intended to exclude me from the
bulldinf yesterday moraine and prepared for
thera. Tbey bad a warrant for me at tbe
front door, bat ( went aro'ind, led by some
Intuition, to tbe back door, and directed W.
A. Kelly, O. B Sedgwick, Jesse Moore and
Grant Enaig-a. my four trusty sergeants, to
moet me. Tbey were promptly on band.
With my eoat collar drawn up I walked
leisurely along with my ruardi to tbe door of
the bouse, knocked lightly with my pencil,
the door opened end in we went, without any
one knowing, who we were. At the entrapoe
to the speaker's desk there were two trusty
guards who disputed my passage, but I said to
myeelf, "I don't need that chair. I will jost
stay here in the elerk's chair.' I swore In my
deputies and we sat down.
Pretty soon a sergeant eame around and
said: I guess I have a warrant for your ar
All right,' says 1. net me see it.' I toek it
and raw it was signed by tbe speaker, so I
placed it In my pocket. Pretty loon bo said.
I guest we will put yeu out.'
Hold on.' said L 'Where Is your author
ity t I have your warrant, sad 1st me see you
get it Without tbe warrant you have no au
thority, to touch me If you dare.'
Re thought a moment, and seemed to take
the same vkw of the, ?.n4 ws had a pleas
ant time after that. -
When th" speaker earns be seemed sur
prised, but ! greeted blm cordially ana we
soon were chatting together .
Bad tbey been smart enough to get out a
civil warrant for malfeasance In office tbey
eould have made it very interesting for me.
In tbe afternoon I was denied admission
and threatened to eall upon the governor, but
the speaker thought better of it and let me
O well,' said Tom Majors, who was pres
ent, 'your experience and tbe result shows
tbs power of mind over mere matter.' "
The above is clipped from the Bee of
January 10, and Is as near tbe truth as
a man like Meiklejohn can tell the
I had the warrant in the house and
was disposing of what few men I had,
and gave the order to keep everybody
out and admit no one without calling
me. But by deception or bribery te
and bis "trusty" mob were admitted.

Increased Revenue Receipts.
Washington, Jan. 13 The com
missioner of Internal revenue says the
receipts during the quarter year just
closed were much greater than that in
any other year and he does not antici
pate an appreciable lessening of Inter
nal receipts In the future notwithstand
ing the McKinley tariff law makes a
a- heavy cut in the tobacco tax and the
law will entirely abolish the special
' wholesale and retail taxes for dealers
after May 1 next The Increase of du
ties upon Sumatra wrappers and for
eign made cigars, it Is believed by the
commissioner, will not materially re
duce the receipts from imports. There
will be of course a material reduction
of internat revenue by the abolition of
the special taxes, but the Increase upon
, Imported cigars has already increased
the domestic manufacture and from
that direction It is believed the reduc
tions by the abolition of the special
taxes will be overcome.
