LINCOLN , May 1M , The legislative

j" Bsrtcd and Gov. Nance once moro
breathes free. The disgraceful scenes
It , * enacted last night under tlfo Icader-
I ship of that political mountebank ,
> Church Howe , arc n fit climax to the
career of a legislature that had wasted
much time , squandered "tho publio
moneys , and whitewashed ono of the
biggest'knavca I hat has over been
t , elevated to high ollico in the stale.
The most important legislative act of
tha extra session is the apportionment
bill dividing Nebraska into three con
gressional districts. The supporters
of this measure wore actuated by
vmany different motives. There is no
doubt that the political man
agers of the railroads would have pre
ferred that the statn should not bo
dintricted because tha nomination
ot largo of three concresjmen would
have enabled them to drive all their
' strikers into the bull pan at the state
convention , and force the nomination
of three out and out monopoly
men , with an excellent chance of eltct-
ing them in a state that has over 20- ,
< X)0 ) republican majority. Next to an
election at largo the bill that did piss
is looked upon by them with the great
The first district , composed of
Douglas , Sarpy , Oaas , Otoo , Nemaha ,
Richardson , P.iwneo , Gisje , Johnson ,
' .Lancaster nml Sdundorscouutie * , con-
"tains over 10 000 republican majority.
The most , populous of thoao counties
are under railroad control , and by
pooling in the convention the U. Pi
and B. & M. expect to control the
nomination , " * which -'th'cyi regard as
equal tp an oliic nljp % J ? ft f $
Church Howe an'd'WVndham , who
ore said to bo affected -nth a congres
sional "bee in theiri'bonnet , " were
doubtless actuated mainly in their
of thu Birns-Slooumb bill by
these considerations They certainly
/support reflect the sentiment of the
people of Nemaha and QMS counties ,
JMt _ , who have no interest in common with
* . w-s * " '
, - Sr"'Douglas county.
On the other hand , "Valentino , who
would also have much prt furred that
the state should not bo districted ,
gave active support through his
friends , in both houses , to the Burns
bill , because ho did not want Douglas
county attached to the northern dis
trict , for various rersons In the first
place , Dauglas county was liable to
bring out some formidable candidate
to ihrosv V.il in convention , and in the
next place , there was danger that Val
would aun several thousand behind in
Douglass county on account of Ins no
toriously bid record.
While Valentine's friends supported
the Burns bill for those reasons , Val'a
political rivals supported it because
they believe that such a division in
sures Val'a political defeat.
Senator Burns , the father of the
bill , assured mo that this was his main
niotivo in pushing this measure. Mr.
JJurns is now an avowed candidate for
"Val'a seat in congress , and he u con
fident of success. While he insisted
that Douglas and Sarpy should bo at
tached to Lancaster , 0 < ws and Nema-
' ha , in order to make the election of a
, republican congressman doubly sure ,
ho was in reality anxious to get rid of
Douglas county in the northern dis
trict , because ho feared that the U ,
P. delegation in the congressional con
vention would nominate Valentino ,
With Douglas out of the district ,
Washington , Burt , Dodge , Merriok ,
Platte , H ill and BulUlo will have the
preponderance , and there is very little
danger that Valentino can carry thoao
Mr. Burns will not'bo the only
formidable rival Val. inuat encounter.
There is a probability that Hen. Li-
under Gerard , of PJatte , and Hon. B
0. Calkins , of Buffalo , will also come
to the front as candidates , with candi
dates from several back counties yet
to hoar fiom. The fact that the mem
bers from Washington and Burt , aa
well as other known political friends
of Judge Orounso supported the Burns
bill confirms my impression that by
general agreement annng leading
politicians in the North Plutte district
Val. is to bo laid on the shelf. After
a careful canvass I feel safe in predict
ing that in any event Vals. political
goose is cooked.
Another class of supporters of the
Burns-Slocumb bill came from the
strong anti-monopoly section in the
southwest. Thoao parties believe
that by joining Douglas and Lan
caster , the two great railroad colters ,
they concede ono district to the mo
nopolies and insure two anti-monopoly
congressmen from the northern and
western districts , This view may be
correct , and if it were not lor the
divergence of material interests be
/ tween Douglas and the southern
f/ counties in the first district , I should
f9 perhaps regard the division upon the
9 whole favorable to the state at large.
The most objectionable feature in this
measure is the manner iu which it
was crowded and forced through , I
know there has been Homo outrageous
gerrymandering in many states , but
never in any state lias a party formed
a concessional district which was A
unanimously opposed by the people
that inhabit U. It is safeto any tha
out of the population of 171000 in thi
district there are not ono hundred per
ions in favor of this division
When the bill first came up in the
senate only ono member , Myers o
Douglas , roied for it , and ho knov
that not ten men nmong the 50,000
people in his district favored the
On the final passage only two ou
the fourteen senators from the distric
Buppotted tno bill. Ono of those ,
Cfl&sol of Gagr , flopped bccausd his
hrnthcr-in-lvw , Governor Nance , was
for the bill.
But Mr. Niuico will re.ip no bencfi

state. Lilto the good Indian , ho is

LINCOLN , May 24. The senate yoE-
.crdy nttornoon considered the tcetl-
mony presented by the Carm investi
gating committee at length , A ultra *
jer of speeches being made upon the
subject , Howe moved the adoption
of the minority report , and Burns , of
Dodge movnd to amoud by adopting
ho the majority report. Turner , of
Platte county , moved to further
amend by holding Carna to bltuno for
acting bearer of such messages as
xTBsed between Robborts and Thurs-
.011 , This was rejcotcd , and the ma
jority report carried by n vote of 20
o 4 , Senators Doano , Dailoy , Howe
and Turner voting in the negative.
The hottest episode of the session
occurred last evening in the houco ,
when the testimony in the house in
vestigation case came up for consid
eration. The house met at eight
o'clock in the evening , the testimony
having been nearly all printed by tliat
time. For a couple nf hours or more
the members amused themselves by
rending it for themselves. At cloven
o'clock Church Howe moved the
adoption of the report of the committee
mittoo , which censures Itobbcrta
strongly in either view of the en BO.
lliniBom opposed thie , as did also
Whedon and Windham. Mr. Franco
expressed his opinion that the com
mittee had exceeded its powtrs ,
and offered a substitute exonerating
llobberts altogether. McShano further
amended by suggesting that both
Cams and liobberts bo cen
sured. Howe objected to tliii on
the ground that the house
had no right to censure an
oiiicer of the sonato. After .sev
eral speeches on this question , a
lively piece of filibustering was com
menced. McShane'd amendment was
lost by a vote of 31 to 32 , and then
the minority , who were headed by
Church Howe , and who were working
to save Carnr , began moving for calls
of the house and for adjournment.
Finally , seeing that the majority wore
not going to wait for tha sergeant-al
arms to summon the absentees , and
that , their side would bo beaten , iHk
came ttf a vote then , Howe and > thirty * '
others left the room and locked them
selves in the sonata chamber. This
was at 3 o'clock this morning. The
sergeant at-arras was sent after them
and wna captured and kept locked up
until 5 o'clock. Tlio house , which
had meanwhile been without a quorum ,
finally agreed to summon the absentees
and get the matter cleared up. A
compromise was accordingly < ffjctcd ,
and at G o'clock the house , by a viva
voce vote , passed a resolution that
leaves both Ilobborta and Cams with
Both houses mcl for short sessions
this morning , and at ten o'clock ad
journed &ino die. Tlio balance of the
time up till noon was profitably em
ployed by the members in drawing
their per diem and mileage , and in
bidding each other tearful goodbyes.
The house this morning presented to
Speaker Stcdd the chair he cccupied
during the session , and ptrformcd a
like eervico for Mr. Kint' , the ser
geant at arms. The governor sent a
woul of congratulation over the brev
ity of the session. The members
gathered up their stationery and oth
er plunder and vanished , and the
Seventeenth session of the Nebraska
legislature passed into history.Allans.

opened the mills this morning and
promised to keep them running if
enough operatives reported for work
at the company's terms to pay for
running the machinery. No such
number reporting the mills were
closed. The strikers now hope to
compel the corporation to yield rather
than suffer further loss.
