Adjutant General Barry is having
prepared a new hoof : of roles and regulations -
lations for the use of the Nebraska National -
tional Guard. The last one was issued
in 1833 , and since then many of its
provisions have been rendered nugato-
ty by subsequent legislation. The pres.
tntcode has nothing whatever t0 do

State Military Board on the 15th inst.
among the interesting contents wit ! be
found rules and procedure , arms and
accouterments , target practice , honors
salutes and ailvial } visits , armories and
arsenals and an instructive chapter on
ourt martial. One of the most useful
portions of the new wash is the article
of instruction to civil officers as to the
method of procedure in callingoat the

there generally arises serious questions
of formality and precedence in making
emands upon the governor for troops

WASIIINGTON , MarC11 2.-Time Semite -
a te amendments to the
army appro-
p riation bills were 1)on concurred in
by the House today and the bill was
sent to conference.
lir . Lacey , chairutan of the public
l ands committee , called up the bill to
lea ; e certain lands in Arizona for
school purposes , tvhtch was vetoed
y esterday by the President , and indeed
that } t be passed over the veto.
Lacey , in support of his motion ,
Said that the house was confronted
with the coustitational interference
of the president on a bill that had
passed Loth houses unanimously.
Mr. Lacey explained that the bill
was identical with that authorizing
01lahouta to lease her educational
.ands for school purposes , which had
been prepared : utd passed by the last
C ongress at tlic request of the Secretary -
tary of the interior oath the commis'
sinner of the ventral land office. As
a result of lire Oklahoma bills. $35,0110
had been rcalizcrl in that territory last
year , whrlr : tinder the former system
SHudil ; had been obtained. Was
it izimplied now , lie asked ,
t hat tltc governor of Arizona was
not as competent to tease these lands
as the Secretary o [ the Interior , 1SU0
miles ; ttva } . Both were Mr. Clet c-
land's ; tppoiattes. 'rime veto message
had called attention to the opposition
of "iuflnenlial citizens" in Arizona.
Naturally such opposition would exist.
The cattle humus in Oklahoma had
protested , yet the law in that territory -
tory had worked acntiraLly. Some
of these lands there now occupied
without ; uttdtorit } and without rental.
1'hc President , Mr. Lace } ' said , had un-
duahtedly been deceived. Ile had
been influenced by men who had , per-
haps. been tnllnenced br others inter-
e sted in obtaining the use of these
lands free of charge.
Mr. Jlurpliy , the Arizona delegate ,
made the positive statement that the
bill had the approval of the secretary
of the interior and the commissioner
of the general laud office , and that
their opinions in writing hall been
] rid before the
; President while lie was
c onsidering the bill. Notwithstanding -
ing this statement. 3m. Turner of
Georgia tlionght it could be assumed'
Safely that the President had had tltq
advice of the sect etu v of the interior
and that the latter probably had in-
s pired the veto One of the principal
objections raised by the President was
that the lands , if leased by the local
authorities of the Territory , could be
denuded of their timber , as by the
terms of the bill it was not necessary
t o submit the leases for the approval
of the seeraary.
The vote resulted 2ar0 to 38. more
t han two-thirds having voted in the
atlirinative , the bill was declared
passed over the Presidents veto.
The announcement was greeted
with scattering applause b } the ] { e-
pnbfican side.
Nr. Henderson , Republican of
Iotra , from the committee on cults ,
then presented a special order , offering -
ing tlic Cpdegrafte bill to abolish the
fee system in the case of united States
attorneys and marshals as an amendment
ment to the legislative appropriation

greeted with great applause in the

joined lIr. Sherman , chairutan of the
S enate committee on Foreign Bela-
li ons , to a whispered conference at
Shtrman's . 'The Ohio senator
announced that the Cuban question
w ould be taken up without ( waiting
f or the usual expiration of the mornp

Mr. Lindsay of Kentucky then addressed -
dressed the Senate on the Cuban reso-
lu tions. Be said the conflict in Cuba
w as at our very doors and was being
waged with such desperation that
only one of two results could come-
either the complete independence of
Cuba , on the one hand , or the utter
annihilation of the Cuban people on
the other. The senator said he approached -
preached the subject from the standpoint -
point of humanity rather than law.
Declarations of sympathy would avail
n othing to the Cubans. Declarations
that they had progressed to the stage
of belligerents would avail nothing.
"If time t nttecl States intends taking
any steps that furl ] avail these struggling -
gling Cubans , that step should be in
the direction of thcultimate independence -
ence of Cuba. " declared 1r. Lindsay
in stentorian lanes. In the past the
United States had not hesitated to
tape the position of recognizing independence -
pendence under circumstances similar
to those now existing in Cuba.
Quoting front international authorities -
ities , the Senator maintained that a
condition now existed } n Cuba justifying -
ing the united States in considering a
pr oposition for active intervention to
restore public order and in behalf of
humanity. flat , lair } .fir. Lindaaw , the
resolutiorn dill not contemplate active
intervention. It extended good offices
Strain with a view to securing the
timate independence of Cuba.
"And such independence , " added
3Ir. Lindsay , " s the only basis which j
will bring Jastin peace to Cuba ,
judged from tit ( experience of seventy f
years. The United States could not ;
relieve itself from the responsibility
seeing that Spain showed this
island some tetrad of justice. Could we j
say to the world that unless Cuba
cured ter independence by her own
unaided efforts she might remain o
under the abject subjection of Spain : '
Should we not say to Spain that same
sort of protection. some sari of justice
and liberty , onsistcnt vith an en-
litrhtened age must be shown to these ,
people ?

At 13 p. in. , Mr. Sherman began no
speech , closing time debate. He
spoke of the keen sensitiveness of the
anish people and their tendency to I in
quickly resent any act they regarded '
injurious to them. But , he felt
that the time had come when the
liraled States mast intervene to put
end to crime almost beyond de-
scription. The Senator said he would
re enter on the legal arguments so
fully covered by Mr. Horgan , but he w
referred to several pamphlets present- so
by Mr. Estrada Palma , the agent
and representative of tltc Cubans in
this country. 1r. Sherman said those ;
statements bore the stamp ) f authen-
city. They overcame the misappre
pension that the Cubans were scat- , .

WASIUNGTON , Feb. 20.-The remark-
a ble speech of Mr. Carter in the Semite -
a te , taken in connection with that of
Secretary Carlisle at time Manhattan
club in New York a few days ago , has
started a good deal of talk about a reorganization -
organization of the old noitira par-
tics and a division of t1tC people aeon
new lines. Moth the Republican , ) : ,
the Democrats seem almost iiopuies..1v
divided upon the same istte , anti that
the most important before the American -
can people today. The parties are
untied upon every other. flora
than half the ] Democrats in 'ont
grass declare that they will not j
support time candidate to be nuni-
nated at Chicago unless ht pCdgc { ;
himself to free coinage. A considcm a-
Lie portion of the Republicans say the t i
same concerning the candidate to be
nominated at St. Louis. Then rutty , it
is asked , cannot those in both ptrtic :
who thin ] : alike get together anti
name men vvlio agree with them ? : l
great many people believe that if di'--
Cussion and division continues mach
longer that will Jtappen. SecrCtu r 1
Morton suggetc d serb an expectation
upon his part in a newspaper interview -

those who claim to have heat's ] the
President predict a general break up '
and reorganization before the rod of
this adL .1nlStration , but it is not likely a J
that there will be any bolting iron : -
either party anti } after the national '
conventions are held oath the platform m
are adopted. ti
The Republican leaders do not cx- t i '
pact any bolt. ] loth Mr. ' 1'cller and
Jli . Carter , who attnaunctd the terms r-
, the sifter Senators , declare that
they will not leave the Republican
party , and that they cannot be driven i
out no matter who is nominated. ,
"I am a Iepublicatt { and I always : t r
expect to be a Republican. " said 11 r.

Senator Carter " 1
