Mr. Conkling asked if the senator
from Indiana proposed to raise a per' '

had supposed from tha senator's well

Ho hoped the resolution would bo
modified eo as to provide for a eclect
committee , so that when the sun went
down on the last day of the session ' i
resolution might be reached [ S1L . ci

Mr. McDonald said the senator had
misunderstood his objection. He had
no desire to postpone relief to the fu
ture. Ho simply proposed that on
behalf of the citizens of the United
States they should have an organ a
tribunal to which they could apply in
matters pertaining to legislation. As

A bill to provide fortho attachment a
land to Indiana on the various aP
reservations , and to extend the pro P

Mr. Coke suggested Mr. Teller in

LINCOLN , Neb. , January 19. The
State , Board of Agriculture met yes
terday afternoon in this city. In
cluding the officers of county societies
there were over ono hundred mem
bers present. From scinning their
facoa and listening to the able di * .
cussion on the subject which the &
gentlemen [ have made a life study , I
venture to eay that a moro intelligent
and manly body of men could not
have been mustered in tbe Mate. At-
tur the usual preliminaries , the elec
tion of officers took
place , which wai
bitterly contested. The following is
the result ;
President J. T. Clarkson , of
Vice-Presidents G. W. E Dorsey
and Ed. McTntyre.
Secretary J. C. fllcBride.
Treasurer C. Hariman.
The meeting then adjourned unti
9 o'clock thia morning.

A motion to amend the by-laws in
creasing the treasurer's salary to § 25 (
On motion Messrs. Moses Stocking
K. W. Furnas and J. S. Morton wore
made life members.
Judge Kinney , of Otoo county , pro
tei ith < ) following resolutions :
WHEREAS , It has become an ac
cepted fact that representative men in
the western and eastern states as
also state and county agricultural so
ciotles and agricultural and horticultnr-
alpaper influenced by the eminent fit
ness of ex Gov. Robert Furnas for
the office of commissioner of agricul
ture , are , of their own volition , bring
g his name promino'tly before the
country for that office ; and
WHEREAS , The west is vitally in
terested in having at the head of the
agricultural bureau a practical man ,
who is thoroughly familiar with its
needs , adaptability , resources and
progress ; and
WHEREAS , Gov. Furnas , having re
sided in the west all his life , and for
the past twenty-five years in Nebraska ,
tind for over twenty years has been an
active and valuable member of this
board ( , ani could bring to the bureau
ripe experience such as few men
possess , not only as a scientific aud
practical agriculturist and horticultur
, but as a gentleman of catholic
riews , and familiar with the necessi
ties of the people and the growing
irants of the country ; therefore
llesolved , By the State Board of
Agriculture and Horticulture for the
state of Nebraska , at this its annual a
neeting , that ex-Gov. Robert W.
Furnas to an extraordinary degree
ombines all the qualifications for
ommissioner of agriculture , and his nt
appointment would bo but a just tribm
ite to well-deserved merit. ti
Setolrcd , That this board do most th :
sarnestly unite with the efforts now st
ioing made by the state and county fo
oards of our sister states in recomm
nending to our newly elected preslfa
lent Gor. Furnas for the office of tl. ;
iommissloner of agriculture.
Resolved , That the national reputaai
ion ( acquired by Gov. Fiirnas as c n- b
essedly occupying a place in the cl
rent ranks of men renowned for B
heir agricultural and pomological rete
eirches and practical experiences , m
annot fail to recommend him to the bi >
resident as a man worthy of the ap- in
lointment , an appointment which
iannot : fail to be well received
hrouehont the entire country.
Resolrcd , That in private , social and
lublic life Robert W. Fnrnas has es-
abliahed for himself an impeachable
iharactcr , and won the admiration
nd friendship of ail classes of people- .
Rcsolttd , That R copy of these reso- wivl
utions be forwarded by the secretary vlvl
this board to our senators and rep- vlal
esentative in congress with the re- io
neat that they place them before th j wi
resident , and earnestly use their ef-
orts to secure for Gov. Furnas the an
.ppointment of commissioner of agri dean so
Carried by a unanimous vote. an
The following resolution was then
iresented by Mr. Abbey :
WHEREAS , The legislature of No-
iraska has generously appropriated to
tha State Board of Agriculture in
laying premiums aud other legitimate low
ocpensea ; and , w
WHEREAS , After paying all claims nc
.gainst the board , there is a surplus ar
619.75 on hand , a sufficient or
amount , with judicious management ,
to meet all liabilities that may here
after accrue , therefore be it
Resolved , That the president and
secretary of this board are hereby in
structed to notify tha legislature now
In session , that no further appropria
tion of public money is asked for the
aid of the board.
This resolution was warmly Opposed
by.sover * ! meuibera of the board.
Mr. Wheeler sai 'tnatj although
thers was1 a surplus in the treasury , a
week of unfavorable weather during
the next fair would throw them on
their backs again. The state had not
been aa liberal with ib appropriations
as hail cthr states for thia object , es-
I partially Kansas , which considered
" ? 50,000 not too much. A great deal
of this sum , however , had been de
void to printed statistics and docu
ments , which had beou circulated to
induce immigration into Kansas. Ho
thought it very unwise to adopt the
resolution , and moved that ii be de
stroyed and omitted from the min
utes , tarried.
A resolution presentsd by C. H
" \ \ alkor , to ask the legislature to aid
the State Board of Agriculture of Ne
braska in making a creditable display
at the world's fair , uas amended by
Judge Ivinney as follows *
Hcsolml , Tnat a committee of three
be appointed by this board , to aid the
commissioners in securing the neces
sary legislation to have Nebraska
properly represented at the world's
fair 1883 and that such committee bo
the accredited pjjetita to thn world's
fairai representatives from this board.
Tno chair appointed Messrs. C. II
