LINCOLN , May 14. When Mr. TcfTt
had cogitated oror night on his ex
planation , called out by Myors' reso
lution , he evidently came to the con
clusion that ho had placed himself in
a dubious position thereby. Accord
ingly ho took occasion when the senate -
ate mot yesterday morning to introduce -
duce the following resolution :
WHEREAS , A certain newspaper
called The Omaha Herald , piloted
and published in Omaha , Nob. , o"
date ot May 10,1882 , makes and pub
lishca in its editorial columns charges
of bribery and corruption occurring
during the late senatorial election in
the state of Nebraska , in thatln con
sideration of the vote given by Sen
ator Graham , of Seward county , Jor
den. Van \Vyck for United State sen
ator under certain arrangements made
to that effect , Senator Graham re
ceived a surveying contract ; and ,
furthermore , that Senator Tefft , of
Cass county had participated in a
burglary in connection with the sur
veyor general's office at Flattamoutb ,
whereby certain public moneys vrere
fraudulently converted to his own
WUERBAB , It is important that the
truth or falsity of said charges shall
be established ; therefore , bo it
RESOLVED , That a committop of
three be appointed by the chair to
inquire into the aforesaid charges ,
and that said committee have power

This-was laid over until Monday
under the rules , and will come tip for
consideration then. Members of the
flonate state that the resolution will
bo adopted , and that the charges will
be probed to the bottom. AfterTeffc
had presented his resolution , Col.
Myers arose and aaked to have his
resolution of the day previous with'
drawn from , the record , as ho conaid-
iho course taken by Mr. Tofl't in the
premises extremely honorable and
creditable. This was nothing moro or
less than a little piece of cheap
"taffy , " as Myors is only too anxious
to have the matter brought up before
the eonate. In conversation with TUB
BSB correspondent yesterday ho
stated that it Mr. Teffc had not taken
this action , ho ( Mjora ) would have
introduced ono to
THE SAME EFFBOT ,
andif that had been ruled out he
would have asked to have the matter
tvrnod over to the grand jury and
tried in court.
JVIr. Moore , of York county , introduced -
duced the following resoluion in the
house yesterday :
WIIKREAS , The calling out of troops
for the purpose of suppressing riots or
labor disturbances is attended with
great expense to the tax-payera of the
state , and
\YiiEKEA8 , A part of the press and
people of the state allege that the
calling out of the state troops in the
.ato labor riot in the city of Omaha
was premature and uncalled for , and
WHKRKAB , Officials may , if permit
ted , become careless and injudiciously
uao this power vested in them and
thereby increase the danger of blood-
filled and destruction of property ,
therefore bo it
RIISOI/VKD , That it is the aonso of
-this house that it is dangerous for the
peace and weltaro of the state to es
tablish the precedent of making ap
propriations to pay the expanses of
calling put troops without making
careful inquiry intu the cauco and ne
cessity of the same , letting the blame ,
if any , attach to where it belongs.
Therefore , the committee on claims
is hereby instructed to make careful
inquiry into the cause of tliolato labor
riot in the city of Omaha and the ne
cessity of calling out atatetroopa teen
force peace and order , and report facts
to the house as soon a consiton ) with

the outrage of the attempt to make an
