LINCOLN , May 23. The ghost of
the murdered Armstrong will not
down. It hfiunta the legislative halls
from day to day. Another exciting
and tumultous scene occuircd in the
houao this morning over the Omaha
Soon after the house was called to
order , Hoi man , of iXdcota , rose in
hi ? seat and presented a roll to the
clerk , which ho stated was a petition
and remonstrance representing five
thousand citizens of Douglas county.
The clerk was directed to read , and
upon opening the roll began reading
a letter signed by Edward Walsh ,
prceidcnt of the Omaha labor union ,
and directed to the house of repre
sentatives. After reading a few lines
of this communication , which began
by protesting against the outrages
misrepresentation of facts by the
committee on claims , the writer char
acterized the chairman , Barilett , ai
"A ' . "
No eooner had those words been
read than Church Howe jumped up
ferociously and demanded that the
further * reading of the communication
bu indefinitely postponed. Ho stated
that thu communication waaan , inmilt
tD the whole bDdy , in that it cast ro-
Jbctions upon ono of its members.
Considerable excitement followed ,
and iuquiiy was made whether the
letter ot VVulah waa part of the peti
tion. It was tound that the letter
wnsaoparate , and the clerk was then
directed to read the petition , which
was very carefully and respectfully
framed , earnestly protesting against
the one" sided , and unfair
Ireatrnanl" * of 'the- * "DjirNaittta , * -in
basing their entire report upon the
( statements from the mayor of Omaha
and Governor Nance , who were in-
tercstud in sustaining their official
courao during the labor troubles aud
finally praying that the communica
tion presented some days ago by Hon.
E Rsuwator be ) filed with the letters
of the officers as an unbiased state
ment , presenting thu viuwa of the
petitioners in thu'prumises.
A motion was made that the prayer
ba granted when Bartlett advanced to
the center of the room aud delivered
ono of his
in which ho very frantically , protested
aotaluat allowing any atump speech
from E. H)3uwater being printed
Hu said that last year the houao had
allowed several ladies the privilege of
delivering speeches on thu floor , but
if anybody had proposed to print ono
of thorn in the journals Iljsowator
and IIH rotten sheet would have de
nounced it as an outrage. ( Mr. Bart-
latt , by tlio way , probably is not aware
,4 that ono of thu peechus madu by a
lady was printed in the journals , al
though it waa not a proper thing to
do , ot courao , and in no wajs a paral
lel C4BO with the communication ad
dressed to Uio houao in writing )
Bartlutt continued to vent his
spleen iigainat THK Biii : and lloiowa-
ter until he had bellowed himself out
ot breath , and then ho w.ii followed
by Church Howe , who also discovered
a terrible trap in this petition ,
Howe finally moved that the whole
subject , petition and all , bo indefin
itely postponed , The ayes and nays
were called , audthi motion lost by a
vote of 37 to 35 , The Djuglas dele
gation , excepting Broatch , who was
absent , and Bartlett who voted to U-
bio thu thing , voted against indefinite
Tnu petition was then unanimously
During the d.ibato incident to the
excilii g cnitrovaray over thia peti
tion , Ganer < il llolman and Mr. Who-
don made strong appeals on behalf of
thu right of petition , and iho right of
men to bo heard , and protested
against the arbitral y course which
Church Howe and Bartlett seemed to
bo forcing on the house under whip
and spur.
The Jotter nf Walsh , which was regarded -
garded as disrespectful , was rejected
and returned ,
The debates on the mililu bill and
the votes given by the different mem
bers make
to the relations which members bear
to the existing state house ring and
thti corporations. Some of these men
who have all along professed ttrnng
sympathy with the producers and lab
orers , have now showed their hands
by voting thoujanda of dollars out of
the atato treasury to ornamental staff
oflieow and greedy railroada. It waa
decidedly amusing to BOO some of
them gyrata in this militia contro
onuncii uowu ,
who is a candidate for nearly every
oflico from governor down to member
of the legislature , struck out against
Alexander by moving that the salary
of that great man as a brigadier gen
eral bo knocked out , but Church
Howe meantime was a warm supporter
of every other item in the bill , includ
ing extravagant pay for all the other
staff officers , the railroads , eating
houses nnd over/body ehe ,
was also decidedly opposed to allowing
the brigadiers cxtrr irant nay , hu
when the item of the B. A M. R. It.
came np he made a terrible onslaughl
on the opponents to sustain the claim
of the pauper corporation , from which
ho has nad frequent retainers.
IIICKBT , or roue ,
the left bower of Nance , as a matter
of courie , was in faror of whole hog or
nono. lie was willing to pay eve < y
thing and everybody , and was very
bitter against the rioter * .
could see no virtue in anybody tha
would rofuao to foot the entire militia
bill or would dare question the need
less use of military.
although representing a 'strong anti
monopoly constituency voted with
Uowo and Bartlett through this cam
Ransom , of Ot.ic , Whedon , of Lin
castor , G-an , llolman , of Dakota
made a gallant fight against reckless
extravagance and partiality. While
tlio.y favoredtho , payment of thn eel
ditra , they word opposed to costly
trapping and exponsts incurred by
gold laced brigadiers of the efalT.
Members of the lonislaturd ai wo
know are privileged characters. They
are not responsible either under
criminal or civil law for words ppnken
in debate on the floor of legislative
halls. Church Howe and Bartlett
made use of that privilege for the
last time perhaps in their legislative
career in
upon the man , whom of all others ,
their mastcra , the railroad bosses ,
most dread , and who always is and
always will bp , in their political path.
It was a pastime that amused some
people , but created the impression
that it was the kick of the expiring
mules ,
A uumborof lesser lights exchanged
shots across the bloody chaem , but
they are hardly worth noticing be
cause most of them are destined for
the political bono yard just as soon as
the doors of the legislature close upon

Qur.nKC , May 23 The itearacr
Peruvian which has boon twenty-six
days out , arrived at this port at 5 p.
in. to-day , m tow of the tug Rocket
Hnd btoimahip Arcadian. Her pas-
sagd was eventful , owing to ice , snow
storms and fog off Capo lUy. Her
difficulties began on Mity ? . Nothing
could bo soon ahead but an immense
fluid of icj , oxtoi.ding as far as the
uyo could roach , and about a
dozen ships were passed in
a day which had como to anchor ,
waiting for the ice to break. At 11
p. m , the Peruvian waa unable to pro
ceed any further. Next morning she
put on full steam and made a dee-
perato effort to break her way through
tint icy barriers , but had not got
before thu ncrow broke and aim lay
helplessly tat and ice bound. The
steamship "Lako Huron" lay in sight
behind. On Muy Oth a anew storm
set in , Steerugu pafsungorn wcru
reduced to thort rations. Biscuits
were served out only every other
morning , and oatmeal gruel was dis
pensed with. The hardships were
keenly felt by women and children.
On the llth the ica began to move ,
hut the vussul made but very little
progress. The L ike Huron had by
this time got up steam and cleored
her way through the floating ico.
On the lUth not a vessel was
in flight , and Iho ice became thicker
than over and she was blown so close
to iho land that it was feared she
would go down , but the wind veering
iround aho was enabled to cut out in
the open aca aguin. On the 17th a
schooner hove in sight and was sig
nalled. A boat was lowered and the
purser go ton board with instructions
t" make for the nearest tolouraph
office and send the news to Quebec.
At 8 p. m. ho hid not returned ,
though anxiou lycxpcctcdand rockets
wore fired every ton minulos. On
the 18ch the wchoonor came in sight ,
but could not gut along side owing to
thu ico. The captain and purser walk
ed over the ice , which was in lumps
forty feet thick and fifty feet wide ,
to the steamer , from 'which a boat
was lovron'd ' , and they were taken on
board. The purser brought the
good tidings that three steamers
were on thu lookout for the distressed
vessel dnco the ILth. After hailing a
couple of steamers which proved to bo
Btrangers , the orew and passengers
hud thu delight of being hailed by the
Griffin with provisions on board.
The Peruvian was taken in
J/"T by the Arcadian , the
urillin hi'opinir alongaido. On the
21st the tn Rocket also camu to the
rescue , and in tow of both eho came
into port this afternoon. Thus ends
this prolonged voyage with fortunately
no loss of lifi ) . About 600 passengers
were on board.

Marshall's letter dcciininic to be a
candidate for congrcssman-at-largo on
the republican ticket was given to the
papers this evening. After saying
his nomination was the result of pas
sionate excitement rather than calm
judgment , and it was a strong tempta
tion to him to endorse the doctrine
of the platform on sound and in ac-
cird with the wishes of the poopoho )
aiys it is a mockery to displace
tried and faithful public servants
in order to provide places for
hungry applicants who may provo
worthless as they nro voracious. Ho
says thu HBO of public patronngo to
control or direct people in their choice
of candidates is a grave political
crime , and tends to make a servant
master. Party obligations sit light
ly cm hii shoulders , nnd the nomin
ation was a complete surprise. Per
sonal nnd private duties demand his
time , and ho declines rcluctlatitly.
He hopes the inheritors of-thu nnmo
and organization of the republican
part } ' may provo worthy to administer
thu fututo affairs of tlio government.
