appropriation bill. Strong pressure was
made to raise nearly every salary Included
In the Mil. The proceedings were almost
tumultuous, the chairman Ix lng unable to
keep order. Tie* salary of the governor’s
private secretary was raised to £2,000. and
several other Increases were made. At II
o'clock the committee rose, having com
pleted less than half the bill. A n urn lx* r of
house rolls were read the first time, among
them being the bill to ix rrnlt counties to
vote bonds for the aid of the Trans-Missls
I sippl exposition. The senate then adjourned.
PEJtATB.—‘I Mi* senate on the HI.H JUKI under

amend incuts to the constitution. There are
I Jin newspaper* Interested in this hill. The
bill also includes the claims of the railroads
for transportation of the Nebraska national
guard, for the deficiencies of the soldiers'
home at Milford and for the home
for the friendless located at Lincoln.
Mr. Watson took advantage of a temporary
lull In the tempest to advance bouse roll No.
W7, a hill making chicken stealing a penal
offense. The statement of the lieutenant
governor, made from the chair, that ail tin*
w idow* and preachers of Lincoln were de
manding the passage of this hill wa* suffi
cient to hustle it to the front. Mr. hr moved
and wan accorded the advancement of house
roll No. 7.1. to amend the Irrigation laws.
After recess the appropriation bill wa* taken
up again and I ts consideration was continued
until the bill was completed and rccorn- :
mended for passage, .lust b forc tin* bill
was completed Mr. wpe nee r offered unamend- !
ineiit. providing for the payment of the
chlcoay bninty earned by the American
chicory company, amounting to 117,000. The
claim wa* rejected. Mr. Murphy had no b*t
ter success in his attempt to secure the In
sertion of the 1**1 sugar bounty claims, lie
fresco ted them a* follows: For the Grand

for IMW, the sum of 63L££7.*s; for the Nor

house, devoted all its time to tho passage of
bills on third reading. Thirty-six bills were
read the third time ami all pass* d hut live.
Work was commenced at V o'clock and the
monotony of the proceeding* wa* broken only
by the roll call*. There were many Incidents
during the day Early In the forenoon Lteu
tenanl Governor Harris announced from the
presiding officer's d<-*k that the order of bill*
on third reading should cease promptly at
noon, the time fixed for final adjournment.
The announcement drifted through the cor
ridors ami reached the office of Speaker
GatHii and Governor Holcomb at abml the
same time. Tho enforcement of the order
would have undungcrcd the siiccessof several
party measures, and shortly afterward* the
lieutenant governor ordered the custodiu i of
the senate to turn back the hand* of the
clock. The custodian turned buck the dork
until Tbe hands point' d t«< 2 *> Later ||» the

thm lirantl .Jury Find* Indictment*
Agaln*t the Republican Caacu*
Nominee for Senator — Five
Thousand Karh Offered for
Four Democratic Vote*
—Charge* Denied*
Frankkokt. Ky., April 11. — Indict
ment* charging bribery and conspir
acy to bribe have been prepared by
the Franklin county grand jury
against three of the most noted Re
publicans in the state, and true bills
may also be returned against ex-Con
' gressman \V. Godfrey limiter of tlie
Third district, Republican nominee for
the United Htalcs Senate; Congress
man .J. 11. Wilson of the Seventh dis
trict, one of Dr. Hunter's closest ad
visers, and K. T. Franks, one of the
leading Republican politicians of the
Second district
The indictments were prepared
upon the testlmoney of (‘upturn Noel
Gaines, Captain Thomas Tanner, hi*
brother-in-law, and Fred Gordon, ail
of thi* city.
The charges are indignantly denied
by Dr. Hunter, Mr. Wilson and Mr.
Franks, all of whom say they will
prosecute for criminal libel all who
have testified before the grand jury.
They all claim that It is the last dcs
nerate effort of the Blackburn Demo
crate to prevent Dr. Hunter'* election.
The following authorized interview
was given out this morning by Captain
'J'Uoma* Tanner, one of the accusing
witnesses: "I wax first called to the
Capitol hotel on April 1. and took Dr,
Hunter to Captain Gaines's house.
1 there board the conversation
which followed between Dr. Hunter
and Gaines. I was in an adjoining
room. My, principal connection with
the case was through Wilson and
I’ranks. On various occasions I was
called to consult with them and urged
to take a hand in buying votes. They
insisted they must have three or four
Democratic votes, and singled out Rep
resentatives Gossoma, Clarke, Johns
and Lykens, whom they said we
(Gaines and myself) must get, al
though any Democratic votes would
be acceptable. I was called to the Cap
ital hotel Monday night and had a
conference with Wilson in room 21,
#!lson had a big roll of bills—he said
there were 85,uiu in the package, and
from all appearances there were.
There were four such packages, or
820,000, and he said this would be paid
for four votes for Dr. Hunter, lie
showed me the money as an evidence
of good faith. He seemed to be the
man who handled all the money. I
had severat conferences with Franks
in the same room. 1 was last called
there Thursday morning, when they
seemed to think that some members of
the legislature had offered to succumb
for 810,ooo, but they thought this too
high. Franks was in the plan and
talked about buying votes, but he
never directly offered me money with
which to buy them. ’’
Captain Games' statement directly
charges Hunter with offering him
815,000 with which to secure three
Democratic votes, and relates with
specific particulars alt the details of
tin- attempted bribery.
The greatest excitement prevailed
during the first ballot for I'nitcd
States senator at noon. The call of
the roll showed no quorum present,
hut a vote was taken which gave
Hunter 57 and Hoyle 1. Sixty an
swered to their names.
A motion to adjourn brought out
the absentees and the votj stood 5s to
5M, but. President Worthington voted
to continue balloting and the second
ballot wus ordered. In this there was
no change.

One of Moody'* Sermon*.
St. Lol l*. Mo., April 11.—Dwight L.
Moody was asked what lie thought of
Robert t!. Ingersoll, who is billed to
lecture here.
“Why dou’t you ask ine what I think
of Corbett?" asked the evangelist, in a
slightly nettled tone. “I never saw
Ingersoll in my life. I don't know a
thing about him. He doesn't Interest
me in the least. I see he is going to
lecture here on ‘Truth,’ is he not?”
continued Air. Moody. “Well, that’s
what I have been preaching for thirty
years. I preached it last night in my
sermon on ‘Sowing and Reaping.’
That's the truth and you can't get
away from it. You go to ingersoll
when he gets here and show him my
sermon on ‘Sowing and Reaping.' If
he denies anything in it let mo know.
I'd just like to hear what he would say
about it.”
