A Review of The Case.
C "Diseases desperate grown by des
perate appliances must be relieved."
For years the republican party bas
seemed to possess some sort of magical
power stronger almost than fata Itself.
Repeatedly ban it snatched victory from
defaat by brilliant tactics and unlimited
fll. Two years ago the wonderful
popular uprising under the name of
"The Alliance" suddenly set the repub
lican party back from a first to a tbird
party la this staU. Stunned and dazed
but not destroyed, that party rallied,
regained its equilibrium, renewed Its
gall and during the past campaign. In
stead of standing on the defensive, its
ohaiaplons boldly assailed the new party
k Its strong-holds. To ths surprise of
everybody such tactics won a complete
Iiabaldened by this success, they con
fidently planned to organize both
branches of the legislature, to elect a
Valted States senator, and to fully re
establish their party la power.
"There is a time for all things" said
wise old S)bmon. , The tlma had came
for republican miglo to fall.
The republican party failed to organ
ise the legislature, or either house.
It failed to elect a United States sena
tor. Neither Its magic nor its money
availed anythln; to accomplish these
objects. Worse than that. It found
that Its new enemy, the Independent
party, though defeatsd at the polls,
was vigorously pushing its campaign
along the saoao linos. Not satisfied
with the verdict f the people, the inde
pendents proposed to verify the truth of
their campaign charges by Investigat

lucky aoeldent, the reports of the prin

most favorable time. 3 The United
States senator had been'elocted. The
house had parsed the railroad bill, and
the appropriation bill, and got far
ahead of the sonata in all Important
natters of legislation. In fact the
house cot only had the time to consider
tkeie reports and act upon them, but It
bad the humor.
The three principal repjrU "were

Tope mored ttat the evidence and
articles of impeachment be read before
the joint convention before action
should be taken upon the matter. The
-motion prevailed and the clerk read one
ef tlu indictments through. Wateon
offered a motion just before the conclu
sion of the reading that the furthei
reading be dispensed with. The motion
stirred up some little foreneiq fury but
it soon blew over and the oierk finished
the reading of the article.
The articles of impeachment arc fora
fn number and are practically the same.
The one against ex-Treasurer Hill omit!
(he 1600 as a cause of action against him
but is used as one of the counts against
each member of the board. The sub
stance of the articles is given below and
Is evidently taken from the report 01
tbo cell house committee as the figure!
Deed in compiling the counts agree witl
those reported by that committee.
Article first cites the fact that tks board el
p-sblio lands and buildings ore the partiei
under which tke ooatrol of all itate kuildlngs,
? To Mia, lots, etc., belong; that among thee
netftaMons subject to taolr ooatrol was t
state poartenttArr: that at the tw.aty-seoens'
sondes of tke logidature the sum of $W ,Xt
was appropriated for tke purpose of bailcUnl
an Jili cm to the state penitentiary aoi
that the addition or cell keueo was to have.
boM built "by deytwork," that is, ths label
tspon the sarao should be employed by tbi
State upoa a per aiain basis.
It aiso professes to hold each and every
member of the board responsible for tbi
proper oare and keeping of these funds.
Farther that the amount came Into sba
possoesion of the board on or about ths
Bonth of Mar, 1M1. but the said board
did not properly and faithfully diebunsj
aid funds lor the purpose aforesaid, but
while the said fund was in their pessee
efan the board was guilty of unlawfully,
negligently and corruptly neglecting to
dtsoharge their duties in regard to auoh
fnnds whereby they became guilty of
misdemeanors in olilce.
This relates the condition of affairs be
tween the state and C. W. Mosbar recordist
the coutraet luber leae. It also recites that
the monibwa of the board knowingly ap
C ointed W. II. Dorgan, whom they wild
new was the agent of aakt Slasher, tf
soperintond the atfalrs of the state; thai
Itorgan was prutlty of many acts of injustice
to the state iu the performance of his duties
as such contractor. Among those irragi
larHies cited is ths one alleging that Dorgaa
oharcod tho sUte at the rate of 11.00 par
day for all labor while as a matter of foot hs
let the same labor to corporations aad Qrral
at tks rate of forty cents per day. The
allege that in this the state was greatly de
frauded and akto in tke appointment of said
Dorgan. In this it is also alleged that the
sneiubors of the board were guilty of misde
meanor in omoo.
Ia this specification it Is alleged that the
members ot the board are guilty of tniedo
meaaor la office beeause of the Snot that they
reeetved the appropriation afRremid for ths
sole purpose of building tke said cell heme,
but did oontrarv to law, pay over aad place
tu ths hands of tor;aa large sums of mossy
f ro4n liivt te tiiue in adranoo of the ureouro

that this was Una. wthotaleuto securltf

The joint convention then adjourned
to meet at 3 o'clock.
Although the republican state of
ficers had requested their friends to
vote for impeachment, and all open op
position had ceased, they had set up a
scheme by which they hoped to snatch
victory from defeat and make the
impeachment trial a farce. Tho com
mittee appointed by the joint conven
tlon of tbo previous week to attend to
drifting the articles had been on its
good behavior. Although two of Its
Ave members were openly opposed to
tie impeachment, and another was in
doubt, they had carried out the wishes
of the convention in the hope that such
behavior might secrue them a reappoint
ment. Then, with full power, after
the legislature should adjourn, they
could make the whole affair a farce
and a white-wash. They had succeeded
in hoodwinking Keckley and he had
fallen In with the scheme. Many of
the independents had been thrown off
their guard, and there was imminent
danger that the republican scheme

that be would ba appointed chairman
of the committee, being the mover of
the resolution. Cornish of Lincoln
was on his feet at once with a substi
tute embodying the republican scheme
It provided for te appointment of tbe
aame commitlee. North, Lowley, G l
ton, Barry and Van Housen, and In
structed them to employ G. M. Lam
birtson ano Judge Wooiwor h of Oma
ba as attorneys to prosecute the im
peachment . The "note of warning"
had thoroughly aroused the inde
pendents. I'orter aroe and protested
again-t the irjeont-ietency of eppointing
men on that committee who were in
stmpathy with the e'ate officers. Oth
er independents protested against dis
charging the lawyers who bad exam
ined the evidence and drafted the ar
ticles, and employing new men who
knew nothing of the case. The repub
licans plead for the adoption of the
f ub-titute, and talked about the honor
and Integrity of the gentlemen on the
committee. But the indepen tent mem
bers had seen all they wanted to see of
the honor (?) of such men as North and
Lowlev. and tbe substitute was de
feated by a vote of 64 to 42.
Then Porter offered the following to
take'the place of Sheridan's resolution,
and it was adopted by a vote of 62 to 54:
Porter to the Rescue.
While the house was engaged fa a
general wrangle over the adoption of
the resolutions Porter moved the follow
log as a substitute "for the whole busi
ness," as be termed it:
"I move to amend that ' a committee
ef three members of the joint conven
tion one from each ef the political
parties represented in the legislature be
chosen by their representative parties,
be selected to employ attorneys and
prosecute the cases of impeachment
against the various state officers and ex
Porter then moved that the joint con
vention take a recess to 4 o'clock and
caucus on a choice for members of tbe
committee from each party. The motion
carried and a recess was taken of twenty
five minutes. After recess the different
fiarties announced their clioice for mera
ors of the commute as follows: Repub
lican, C. R. Colton; democrat, C. D.
Casper; independent, P. H. Barry, and
on motion of Woods they were mad the
unanimous clioice of the convention.
The choice of Colton by tho republi
can caucus showed conclusively where
he stood, and vindicated the correct
ness Of THE ALLIiNCE-lNDEPENDENT'8
Each caucus alsi proposed the name
of an attorney. The independents
chose tireene and the democrats, uoane,
but tbe republicans discarded Pound
and chose Lambertson. Ihls again
showed that they were playing into the
bands of the accused omcors.
The joint convention having com
pleted its work, then adjourned with
out a day.
A Second Joint Convention Called

After It had been decided to impeach
ITlll, Allen, Humphrey and Hastings,
It occured to the minds of many mem
bers that the biggest boodler in the
gang had escaped. So the house com
mittee on impes.cb.ment was Instructed
to look into the record of one Thomas

consisted of Barry, Van Housen and
Lockner all men of nerve nnd energy,
and they went arter Mr. Benton wlh
