LINCOLN , May 12. The legislature
got well at work yesterday , bills being
introduced on all but two of the sub
jects included in the governor's call.
No fewer than eight bills on the ap
portionment problem were presented
in the two houses , throe originating
hi the senate and five in the house
Some of those bills were pretty much
alike , their authors notovidently com
paring notes before submitting their
offspring to the scrutiny of the legisla
ture. Throe of the bills place Doug
ias and Sarpy counties with the
country south of the Platte and east
of Saline connty. Two put Sarpy
south and Douglas north , and the rest
place Douglas north of the Platto.
The determination to beat the Burns
bill and its imitators is so strong that
it looks as though , it would certainly
succeed , though some of the members
are a trifle non-committal.
At the session of the senate yesterday -
day throe bills were introduced on the
subject of apportionment , Senators
Burns , Ballontino and Ervin being
the authors thereof. The text of
thiiXurna bill , which Booma likely to
be defeated now , although very popu
lar last winter , is substantially as fol
lows :

son , Nemaha , Pawnee , Gage , Lancas
ter , Otoo , Casa , Sounders , Sarpy and
Second District-That portion of
the South Platte not included in the
above district.
Third District That portion of the
North Platte not included in the first
district. This gives a population of
170,000,148,000 arid,137,000 , , in the
three districts respectively. *
The Ervin bill makes the districts
this shape :
First Lincoln , Gage , Pawnee ,
Richardson , Nemaha , Johnson , Otoo ,
Cass , Saunders , liutler , Seward and
Sarpy Bounties.

The population of these districs is
154,091 for the first , 149.594 for the
second and 143,822 for the third.

Mr. Broatch presented a memorial

No business of importance was
transacted in the house this forenoon.
The senate convened at 10 o'clock ,
mmodietoly after the reading of the
ournal was concluded by the clerk
Senator Myers , of Douglas called up
lia resolutions to investigate alleged
rauda and embezzlement in conneo-
ion with the surveyor general's oflico
t Plattsmouth.
Senator Powers raised the point of
rdor that these resolutions could note
> o entertained because they proposed
iiisiness not embraced in the gov-
rnor'o call , hence were unconstltu-
ionol Ho cited section 8 , article 5 ,
of the constitution , wh'ich _ provides
bat the legislature shall enter 'upon
no business except that for Which
hey were called together ; and section
.5 of article 8 , which says that all
resolutions that require the concur
rence of both houses must bo sub
mitted to the governor for his ap
proval , and therefore are in the na-
ure of legislation. The resolutions
offered by Mr. Myers being of that
haractor , could thoroforp not bo on-
ertainod under the constitution.
The president of the senate
adding f urther that ho , ( Gams ) , had
, he verbal opinion of Attorney General
Jillworth that these Investigation
evolutions could not bo acted on at
his session , and ho assured the senate
ate ho could procure this opinion in
writing if it was wanted.
Mr. Myers : I appeal from the de
cision of the chair.
Senator Toft rose to a question of
irivilego Ho appealed to his col
leagues in the senate whether during
his long service his reputation had
over been tarnished by any dishon
orable act. It was well known that
16 had boon an ardent supporter of
Senator Van Wyck during the late
senatorial canvass and ho labored with
Ilia colleagues earnestly on behalf of
lia candidate , but ho would ask "any
senator on the floor whether ho waa
ever approached by him with offers of
patronage or place , Pausing a few
moments the senator said , I hear no
response. I was perhaps as intimately
associated with Senator Van Wyck as
any of his supporters , and I never
liavo known or heard of any bargain
or promise of patronage dur'nB the
senatorial canvass , Ho pronounced
the charges of the'Omaha Herald as
connecting his name with any frauds
or jobbery as
At the proper time ho intended tc
take up and moot these charges bul
no man who does not own a newspa
per could afford to indulge In newspaper
per controversies and am appeal to the
courts might involve a man in an out
lay of $400 or $500 for lawyers anc
an award by a jury of perhaps five
cents. ( This was an allusion to Sena
tor Myers' $20,000 libel suit against
THE BEG. ) If the senate had the
time and authority to act in this matter -
tor he was willing to have it dono.
At the conclusion of these remarks
Mr , Myers withdrew his appeal from
the decision of the chair.
President Garni thereupon declared
the investigating resolutions out of
order and ruled out.
Senator Toft's remarks were pronounced
oven by his best friends , and the po
litical friends of Van Wyck nro chuck <
ling over their success in smirching
the reputation of one of his loading
supporters and creating a damaging
impression concerning ins own con
duct. Cams , who fools terribly uneasy -
easy about the threatened revelations
of his late partner , Reynolds , also
fools much relieved. Ho has been
laboring hard to establish a precedent
against investigation at this session.
The opinion is freely expressed , how
ever , that this is by no moans the end
of the Investigating business. It is
predicted that Senator Van Wyok will
doirand and insist upon some action
to disprove the slanders _ against him
self that were embodied in the Meyers
resolution. There is no doubt that
either house can legally investigate
the conduct of its own members , or
enter upon any inquiry that docs not
require the assant of the governor or
concurrence of the houso.
The militia appropriation bill ,
liandod In by Rlickoy , of Polk county ,
calls for the disbursement of the sum
of $12,023.83 for the payment of the
following expenses : Quartermaster's
department , $2,403.34 , including
transportations ; commissary depart
ment , $4,167.10 ; pay-roll , $5.039.19 ]
surgeon , $114.25 ; regimental staff ,
$674.09 ; governor's staff , $807.90 ; os-
; imated outstanding claims , $200-
[ "ho " charge for transportation by the
Union Pacific is $276.80 , and by the
& M. $1,503.50. Markol & Swobo
irosont a bill for meals furnished at
ho rate of 50o each , amounting to
$2,765. $ Oanfield house bill is $590.
Che transportation of the regulars is
charged to the government , and is
nainly oror the U. P. , which doubt-
ess made moro than the B. & M. out
of the Omaha labor troubles.
The house committee on claims to
whom these bills were referred will
nsist upon an itemized statement of
some of those bills , especially these
or the governor's and staff and regi
mental staff are regarded as decidedly
steep. _

Union was crowded to its utmost ca

the assassination of Oavcndiah and
Burke was received by nil classes of
American citizens. Among the nudi-

of a number of threats having boon

distributed throughout the hall to preserve -
servo order , and a reserve of fifry was
detailed in the upper part of the
wilding , ready to act at a moment's
Mayor Grace presided and jn open-
ng said : The last time ho presided in
ho hall itHAS when a meeting TTOS
told to protest against the imprison-
nont of Americans in English prisons.
Soppily they are released , wo are
now assembled to express our abhor-
nnco of a great crime. Wo had re
covered from ono surprise when the
news flashed out over the wires [ A
voice. "Threo cheers for assassins ! "
Another. "God save Ireland ! " ]
hat the chief secretary of Ireland had
> eou sir ken to death , which I fear
las done no little harm to the Irish
cause. I feel confident the deed was
not done by friends of Ireland or of
-ho Irish cause. "
The speaker then denounced the
now bill which had recently been in
troduced in parliament , and con
cluded by saying ho had no doubt but
; hat at an early day the Irish people
would obtain self government
Hon. Richard O'Gorman ivai the
next speaker. Ho said : "I dil not see
that it was necessary to hoHja public
mooting to denounce thq./c'jjfftnd iin-
natural murder unnatural ; because it
was committed in Ireland. " [ Uproar. ]
"It was a cold blooded murder and
; hat was the least that could bo said
of it. " fA. voice 'Humbug , " and
general uproar. ] The speaker next
oforred to tho' killing ot President
JJarfiold and said , "That assassin of
our chief magistrate is now
waiting his doom. " Ho was
> leased that no complicity could bo
> rganlzed against the Irishmen of any
faction , but it was foolishness to sup-
lose Irishmen would treat England
with J brute forco. England was too
> oworful to attempt to do what was
n his opinion a criminal act. " [ A
voice "Dynamite. " ] Koviowing at
; roat length the wrongn of Ireland ,
10 condemned in strong terms the
now bill recently introduced into the
English parliament. Ho concluded by
saying that the hour in Ireland was a
very stormy ono. It was ono of dan
ger ; but light followed darkness. It
ras their darkest hour just before
the dawn.
Great uproar hero followed , during
which a man named Morgan among
ho audience attempted to address the
meeting. Order was finally restored
and the chairman introduced Wm , B.
Wallace , president of the land league
of New York , who said they bad , as
sembled together to repudiate the
assassination. No matter by whom it
was committed , England was sure
o take advantage of it , and would
enact stronger laws than over before.
Their duty was to stand by Charles
Stewart Parnell , { "groat cheer
ing1' ' ] in strengthening their hands
jy your support. The assassination
was not the work of the land leaguers ,
but the enemies of the Irish people.
James Hcdpath said that an assassin
was not only a man without heart , but
without brains. Ho detested assassins ,
but God bless nihilism and dynamite
In Russia [ cheers ] . The assassination
of Cavendish and Burke was n fatal
blow to progressive liberty in Ireland ,
but the real assassins of Cavondisl :
and Burke were not the rea hearted
murderers that committed the act ,
but Gladstone and Forster. [ Cheers/
Resolutions were adopted strongly
condemning the assassination and the
damage caused Irish nationality ; de
nouncing the law last night oflved by
the government as a greater wront ,
than any to which Ireland has yet
been subjected , protesting against the
employment of brute force , whether
by the dagger of the assassin or by
organized militia power.
