"Ropresontntlvo Dlnglcy of Maine is
to be chairman of the committee on
ways and means and leader of tho
House of Representatives. Mr. Reed,
Who has been very secretive ns to his
Intentions in regard to committeo ap

tion to get out finally. It is of tho
highest importance as indicating that
tho new speaker does not Intend to bo
Influenced so much bv senioritv of

as oy tne utnessot men for tho places
which he has to fill.
'Other Important chairmanships
that arc understood to have beon

committeo on rivers und harbors; Mr,
Daniels of New York, committee on

was a forogono conclusion, he had am-
Ele opportunity during the recess to
lock out tho committees and dccldo
upon the various chairmanships.
Tho members themselves generally
wroto to hm their aspirations. It is
believed that before iio arrired hero
almost all tho important places had
been decided upon. It Is understood,
though, that a few of tho important
assignments are yet in controversy.
It was for a tlmo proposed to mako
Mr. Payne, of New York, chairman of
the ways and means committee, and
Mr. Dlngley had consented to give
way In order not to embarrass Mr.
Reed. Now, however, that plan has
been changed and Mr. Dinglcy will

IliUq for New UnUlculilpi.

President Bryan asked unanimous
consent to mtroduco the following me
morial in behalf of tho Nebraska dele
gation: Whereas, We believe that an exposi
tion of all tho products, industries and
civilization of the states west of tho
Mississippi river, mado at some central
gateway where tho world can behold
the wonderful capabilities of thso great
wealth-producing states, would bo of
great value, not only to tfie Trans-Mississippi
states, hut to all tho homescck
ers in tho world; therefore", bo it
Resolved, That tho United States
congress bo asked to tako such steps ns
may bo necessary to hold u Trans-Mls-Blssippl
exposition in Omaha in the
mouths of August, September and Oc
tober in tho year 1808, and that repre
sentatives of such states and territo
ries in congress bo requested to favor
such an appropriation as is usual in
such cases to assist in carrying out this
In explanation of the motion Mr.
Bryan spoke briefly on tho advantages
which such un exposition would create
for the west Tho peoplo of tho east
had no conception of tho resources of
tho west When they visited Chicago
they thought that that was as far west
as civilization extended. Such an ex
position as was projected would bring
thousands of these people to view tho
actual possibilities of tho Trans-Mississippi
Colonel John Doniphan of St Louis
urged the adoption of the resolution.
He said that no more appropriate placo
than Omaha could bo selected at which
to givo an exposition of the growth,
the products and tho weather of the
western country. Omaha was in itself
a realization of tho fondest dreams of
tho early statesmen of this nation. He
briefly related the history of Nebraska
and tho surrounding states of which
Omaha was ono of tho grandest tri
umphs. Ho urged unanimous action by
tho congress In favor of the resolution.
Ills eloquent tribute to the west was
received with hearty applause.
Mr. Cannon said that fifty years ago
he had roamed over the hljls where
Omaha now stands. Then the Indians
occupied tho territory undisturbed, and
now he marveled to seo tho structures
that had grown on tho then barbarous
soil in this half century. Ho declared
that tho city hall and tho Beo building
had impressed him with tho enterpriso
of Omaha, and the disposition of its
citizens to build up a great city on the
banks of the Missouri.
Other speakers expressed similar sen
timents, and then tho resolution was
unanimously adopted by a rising vote,
and amidst prolonged applause.
Resolutions wero adopted declaring
in favor of a strict enforcement of the
Monroo doctrino and the completion of
the Nicaragua canal under the direct
tupervision and control of tho govern
ment; demanding the recognition of
the Cubans as belligerents; the admis
sion of New Mexico as a state; tho ap
propriation of 500,000 by tho
next national congress for tho
purpose of nn irrigation survey of
the arid and semi-arid regions of
tho west; declaring for the Imme
diate foreclosure of government mort
gages on tho Pacific roads, or else a re
organization on such lines as would
only allow tho rollrcads a reasonable
degree of profit W. J. Carlson of Cal
ifornia presented a minority report on
tho latter resolution, in which he
pointed out the utility of tho railroads
in developing the west, and urged that
a settlement be effected on the merits
of tho case. The resolution was cham
pioned by President Bryan, who had
originally introduced it,
Mr. Carlson spoke at length in favor
of the minority report, and after some
further discussion and a general ven
tilation of opinions, both reports wero
referred back to tho committee to seo
