The speech of Senator Van \Vjck , of Ne
braska , In the senate this afternoon nualnst
perpetuating the Utah commission , vva ? the
sensation of the day , Uesidcs scoring n mini-
burof points against the profligate habits of
the commissioner liu llooicil Senator Voor-
hce.sof Indiana. Mr. Van Wyck veiy much
objected to continuing this commission at an
expense of twenty or thlity thousand dollars
per year , when the ilutlea of it might Juit as
clldovolvo upon tlueo letlred army olllccrs ,
there being a number of mm on the ictlicd
list \\lio arc callable , and who coidd
lie pressed Into service , lie said that
the government was not only called
upon to pay the expenses of tliocommls-
sionin going to Utah , but also on their
numerous tilps to Washington. Kveiyyear ,
he stated , the commlssioiicis came heie and
dollveied their leports. No other registration
ofllcers under the government me loqtiircd to
comu line dimply to make their lepoit , and
the poveminent had to foot all the hills , even
to tint tips they made to the porters on the
train and at the hotels , and while the com
missioners weio hem paid their slrcet car
' fare to the capltol and their bills lor luncheon
" \Ve must loosen the gilp of theses and
other men on the tteasury , " paid Mr. Van
AVyck. "It Is seldom , however , " ho con
tinued , "that when once an olllcer gets hold
of tlm thioat of the treasury ho can bo choked
on" . " The anti-polygamy laws , ho declared ,
wcic Milliclently and properly executed by
theteniloilalollleots any way. Turning to
tlmdcmociatli.side of the .senate .Mr. Van
Wyck said : "J hope the men on this side
\vlionri ! new balling In the vnllev of icforin
will help cut oft this abuse which has crept
into the public Mjtvlco under icpubllcan
rule. " The senator called attention to the
fact that thoio vu'io no less than six clerks
employed by the Utah commission , a laigcr
number than as many senators \\ould employ
P while the duties of the commission were
known to bo nominal.
When tliis statement was made Mr. Cock-
lell of Ml.ssoml sprang to his feet and de
manded that the f-unator Irom Nebraska
should name the oleiks employed , olheiwise
ho would di-cicdit the statement. Mr. Van
AVyck leplicd that he did not like to enter
into personalities and lofiisod to name the
clerks. Then Mr. Vooihec.s ot tudlana
Jumped up , and in a dramatic way challenged
the statement of Mr. Van Wyck , and said
that It was unloundcd In tact , and unices the
names of the eloiks weio leait ho would pro-
noiinco the assertion false. This cicatcd a
decided sensation. Mr. Van Wyelc , however ,
was equal to the moment. Drawing fiomhis
papeisa iccent repoitoftho commission , ho
began loading the names of the cluilcs cm-
ployed by it at Salt Lake City. It look
Bomo time to lind the names of three
cleiks , dining which time lie had named the
commissioner and counted a messenger as a
cleik. Then Mr. Voihees jumped to his feet
nnil began taunting Mr. Van AVyck , declaring
f ho could not rind out thrco clerks employed
even though ho did count a messenger as a
clerk. Mr. Van AVyck had something In
reserve , lie read fuither in thoiepoitand
btill fuithrr , and boloio lie hail Mulshed ho
had named eight oleiks Instead of blx- . The
whole scene was like stage acting. Senator
Van AVyck never played a pait better or
stronger , and when he Hooted the Indiana
senator the senate chamber rang with
cAiti.isi.ii's roMMiTTin : rioiiiti.if. : :
Speaker Cuillslo was In hiding last night
In order to get u little ro'4 liom- impor
tunate committee seekers. Ho Is not , how-
o\er , making many changes , and the chair
manships of Impoitaut committees , with onu
or two exceptions , an ; about what newspa
pers have guessed them to bo. Col. Moirlson
said the speaker went to the capltol Tuesday
prepaied to announce the committees , pro
vided that itftcT consultation with some of
Hie mciiibt rs of the hout-e the lists weio found
to bo satisfactory. On the opening of the house
only a few of those weio picsent whom the
Speaker de.slrcd to tulle with , and ho felt
obliged to wait until ho had a
chance to Fee them. The committees will
without doubt be announced to-day In almost
the MUim the older as that decided upon oilg-
Inally by Speaker Carsllle , unless some lur-
thcr complication shall arise. A bitter con
test has been waged over the ehalimanshlp
of the I'acilio lalhoads. Tlnockmoiton , of
Texas , lias been assigned to the place , but the
Puellle nilhoad Interests aio endeavoring to
have the speaker substitute Dunn , of Aikan-
sas , because of Throckmoi ton's alleged hos
tility to the 1'acllle toads. It is not piobablo
UK change will bo made. Two impoitant
changes that Inteiiuptud the woik of the
speaker were those of Hewitt , of Now A'oik ,
undCuitln , of I'eniisylvanla , Hewitt was
originally assigned to the chaliman-
t t hhlp of naval alTaliK , as ho had
expressed a disinclination for tin ( her sei vice
on the ways and means commlttco under
Morrison , ' Upon ictuinlug to Now York ,
however , during the holidays , ho was pci-
Miadcd to lecouslder this determination by
leading men of that city , who 1'cel that ( ho
largo commercial Intciosts of Now Yoik
should bo lepiosontod upon the ways and
moans committee , Yielding to this senti
ment Hewitt declined the tirst place on the
nnval affairs , and at his own icquest will bo
continued on the way.s and means commlttco.
In addition to this ho will bo second on the
naval allalrs commlttco. the chairman ot
which will bo Heibctt , of Alab.ima. Cm tin
was put down for chilrmanof the banking

displeased with his removal from the foreign

SIIINKY , Nib. Jan. 0. [ Special Telegram. ]
Jim Kennolds , the murderer of the Pink-
slons , was to-day sentenced by Judge Hamer
to bo hung on May 21.
The o line for which llennolds Is to be
hung was one of the most revolting In the
annals of Ncbiaska. On the moinlng of
September 17 Jim llennolds and Leo Nnnn
came Into Sidney and icpoited n honible
murder had been perpetrated on Middle
Clock , thlity miles northwest of here. About
dusk two men , as they stated , disguised as
negroes , came Into the tent of James Plnk-
ston and John Plnkstou , father and son ,
who had located a slioil tlmo before on a
homestead. After a short conversation , one
of the strangers picked up an axe , striking
the old man and son on the
back of their heads , killing them
Instantly. llonnouls was in the tent
during all this and could do nothing ,
tlm other stranger pointing a cocked pistol at
him. The murdeiers then examined the
pockets of their victims , extracting S51. They
hitched up Plukston's team , carried the dead
bodies In wagons to a sand draw a mile and
a half distant , and coveied them up with
sand. They compelled Jleunolds to assist
them. Coming b.ick to the tent they burnt
up the entire effects and advised IJenuolds to
skip out , turned the horse loose and de
camped on foot , going In a westerly direc
AVhen I'cniiolds was first questioned by the
authorities here , ho said ho had no money.
The latter deemed It adKible , fiom the eon-
lllctlng stories of llennolds and Nunn , to
place them both under aracst. Searching
Jlcnnolds they found SIM In his possession.
He accounted for this by saying he found a
loll of greenbacks six miles from town.
Investigations were made by the ofllcials of
tills county , and enough evldenco secured to
convict llennolds of the double crime.
Enough was developed on the trial , which
concluded on December ai. to warrant the
jury in bringing in a verdict of murder in the
fust degree. On tlio night of the muider the
Pinkstons cro visited by Itennolds dis
guised as a negro. After a short conversa
tion llcmiouls grabbed an ajcc and felled
the olil man , splitting his head open. Then
turning upon his son liennolds served him
In like manner. Both died instantly. The
muiderer's motive was robbery , as ho ran
sacked tlio picmises and secured S > in cash.
The sentence gives general satisfaction in
this county , as the evidence of llennolds'
guilt and the enormity of tlio ciimo are con
sidered suflicicnl \\aiiant it.

shook him shook the whole commonwealth.
It would not do to place the selection of post-
masteis in the bauds of the people. 1 do not
mean that the people aie Incapable of making
their choice of olllceis , but we must have some
way of demonstrating the power ot the gov-
eminent. AVhy , the boy who cm lies the mall
to and fro between the posloftloe and
the railroad station is a part of
tlio government of the United
Stales , and weio It necessary ah
army would be pent to protect him in the dis
charge of his duty. This Is a local Illustia-
lion of the necessaiily far-icaeliing power
and duty of a coveminent. Now , you put
the selection of postmastcis in tlio hands of
the patrons of the ollices and it w ill have the
effect of making the people believe that they
have the power to contiol the details of the
government , and the fear of and respect for
the government will at once diminish. "
Jndiro Kdgerton does not believe that the

The story of the cilnio which will lesult In
AVeston's confinement lor a term of four
years Is an Interesting one. About live > ears
ago , being of a speculative iiatme , lie went to
the gas well i egions ot Westmoi eland county ,
Pennsylvania , and located a tiact of laud on
which lie purposed to boio for gas. Alter
making the pmchaso it was discoveied that
the title to the land was In dNputo , and. In
outer that no advantage might be taken ot
him in the matter , AVeston built a cabin on
tholiactand pienaied to assert the light of
squatter sovereignty in addition to that ho
had acqulied by the payment ot money.
With him weie a do/en lesolnte fellows , who
were armed 10 the teeth , and under the lead
ership of so detei mined a man as the Chicago
capitalist It was Inevitable that bloodshed
should ensue , In ease other claimants to tlio
property used force. This limy linalli did ,
coming lo the laud one night in IbSt , at the
head of the crowd being a man named Obe-
diah llaj maker. A pitched battle followed ,
In which mu-kets and b.i.sonets weio tieely
used bv both sides , and at its clouo it was
found that Haymaker had icccivod several
bayonet wounds , liom which ho
died a few days later. Weston
was Indicted and tried for riot and muider ,
being convicted and sentenced to seven years
impiisonmcnt. A new trial was seemed , i
and about a year agoa second conviction was
had , the penalty being llxed at four years
impiisonment. An appeal to the Pennsyl
vania supieme com I was taken , and not long
ago the finding of the lower court wasap-
pioved and a new tilal denied. Nothing
theiefoie lemains for Mr. Weston but to
serve the sentence.
