Barker Case Continued,
Tlio hoaring of tho motion for n now
t riiil in tho Barker murder caso wiis to
havocomo up in tho supremo court
Tuesday. Owing to tho fact that ono
of tlio .justices of tho supremo court
was compelled to ho absent on account
of tho death of his mother, tlio case
was continued until tho noxt term,
which convenes March 21, tho mom
hors of tho court dooming it unwiso to
tako action in so important a cuso ex
cept by tho entire membership of tho
court. Tho delay in the caso is un
avoidable and, though tho wait will bo
a short one, many people aro disap
pointed. The Kemptons.
Tho Kompton Koniody Kompany,
which has boon showing at tho opera
houso all wcok, is ono of tho host popu
lar prlco shows on tho road. Thoir
repertory includes only standard
comody-dranias, tuid for several of
these thoy carry thoir own special
scenory. Tho company has boon play
ing to crowded houses, and ovoVyono
seems to otijoy tho performances. To
night tho company will present "Tho
County Fair," Noil 13urgoss' great suc
cess. In "Tho County Fair" thero aro
none of tho "mushy" love scones ho
common in comedy-drama. Tho story
is a beautiful ono, of two waifs who aro
given a homo by a pious maiden lady,
and they repay her by saving her homo
from tho clutches of an avarcious
neighbor, through the tho instrumen
tality of her colt, "Cold Molasses,"
which tho by in tho play trains and
entors for tho races at ' tho county
fair." Tho horror of "Aunt Abigail,"
when sho sees her colt led into tho
stretch, is turned into rejoicing when
ho wins tho race and litts tho mort
gage Tho play is brimful of comedy
of tho most wholesome kind and
should bo seen to bo appreciated.
Saturday afternoon there will bo a
matinee for women and children, at
which timo tho company will presont
"A Guilty Mothor" and tho engage
jnont'will close with tho performance

NOTES OF THE LEGISIATIRE.
Bridge Building Trust.
Lincoln, March 0. Tho timo for tho
introduction of bills closed last week
with a much smaller number than
usual put in. Just boforo tho closo
of tho forty-day period it was
made public that a gang of eight men
was located at tho capital doing a
thriving business in tho manufacture
of bills. These thoy would eithor got
introduced by innocent members, or
thoy would go to somo party or cor
poration and threaten to liavo tho
bills introduced. In every caso money
was demanded to guaranteo tho death
of tho bill. Thoy succeeded in getting
a number of this sort of "hold-up"
bills introduced, when a public expos
ure drove most of tho gang out of town
nnd stopped tho business. It was an
old trick, which some of tho hold-up
artists have worked for a number of
sessions, and thero aro nlways mom
bors innocent or gulliblo enough to in
troduce such bills "by request" and
thus help along tho infamous busi
ness. Tho indications now aro that tho ses
sion will ond about tho 1st of April
Tho appropriation bills aro always sub
jects for belated consideration, and
causo delay at tho latter end of tho
session. But tho house is making fairly
good speed on them and will soon have
thorn over to tho senate As usual this
work is somewhat intorfored with by
tho heads of institutions who demand
extra largo appropriations, and by
clorks who aro clamoring for inoreaso
in salaries. It is not probable that
thero will bo any cut from former
years, unless tho sonato trims down
tho house figures.
The sonato commitiee, on tho motion
of Senator Cady, has put tho binding
twine bill on lilo with an amendment
providing for tho issuanco of bonds
for the investment, to bo carried by
tho permanent school fund until paid
off from tho profits. This makes no
addition to tlys direct appropriation
and adds nothing to tho total of direct
taxes It is tho way Kansas has pro
vided for her light against tho Stand
ard Oil trust.
Tho lobby of tho bridge trust grows
larger and bolder as tho session draws
to a close, aud money is flowing liko
water in tho offort to prevent bridgo
legislation. Tho money spent by the
bridge men in entertainment of mem
bers, and in carousals, runs well into
tho thousands, aud it later will como
from tho pockets of tho taxpayers, as
tho'o is scarcely a county that has not
already sulfored at tho hands of tho
bridgo trust. Somo fow of tho county
commissioners aro still boldly assist
ing tho bridgo men. An effort is being
made to discourage members of tho
legislature from accepting theater
tickets and othor favors from this dis
graceful lobby, with somo results. But
tho usual answor is that thero is a
combination between all tho lobbyists
in Lincoln, to further or prevent legis
lation, that tho "favors" aro for com
mon use in provouting bridgo legisla
tion, corporation regulation, primary
reform, and tho liko, and that tho
bridgo men aro no worso than tho
others. F. A. Harrison.
