BOUND TO GAQ THE PRESS : The Ijlncoln Iloodlcrs ) lint nnd Re consider the Libel IJI11 Anotlicr Prohibition lilnck Eye Much Other Legislation. Thr Story ofthe Connplrncy. LINCOLN , Neb. , March 2S. ( Special Tele gram to the UEI.J : The linn's exposition of the conspiracy on the part of cer- tnln members of Iliu judiciary committee - too of the house to extoi t money from the gamblers for the purpose of killing the anti-gambling bill caused the greatest excitement All day yesterday the promised disclosure was the talk of the crowds In the hotels aud the same subject was continued throughout this morning's session of the house. As the noon hour approached preached , nearly ouu-half of the members slipped out of their scats and struck oil' for towu to get early copies of the JJin. : Among these were the parties whose names figure In the record of the conspiracy. The Hr.n never reached the legislators until the afternoon , having first to pass through the local and legislative postofllccs. This morning , however , enter prising newsboys were In the halls of the capltol selling before the recess. Although hundreds of the paper arc dally cliculated In the legls laturo at the state's expense , yet nearly every member bought a copy ami retired to read it In private. The general Im presslon prevailed that the chain of facts proving a conspiracy are conclusive and many of thoio who formerly V TO doubtful of the validity of the charges are now satisfied that the linn has moro than Instilled the promises made by Its editor In respect to the suspected members of the committee. Sul llvan and Slater were absent this morn ing and It Is not likely that the latter will rjtnrn before adjournment. The othcis could not bo found. The UKE correspondent later asked a few of the Interested parties what they thought about the conspiracy expose. Mr. Russell said : "I'm clad ho ( Mr. Hosowater ) pub lished it , because If ho hadn't ho might have made seine people believe ho had something behind his threats. There Isn't the slightest thing In the story that effects mo at least. The reason 1 was up In Omaha at the time was because I was looking around about thai Grand Army matter , and If ho had spies watching mo they must have been awfully disappointed. " Mr. Sullivan was also asked and said : "It's a outrage. When 1 got upon the floor to bring that bill before the house , 1 did It to vindicate the judiciary commlttoo be cause I felt that there were members o it who had taken money and been bribed But to take n man's ofllclal action on the Hour and construe it as It was coir Etrued was an outrage. It settled the busl ness and settled me Inevocably against tin bill. The evidence , however , Is oC the thin cst nature Imaginable. " The reporter asked Mr. Caldwcll what h thought of the charges. Ho replied : "Well , 1 liavvn't anything to say about them. II wouldn't become me to talk about otue members' affairs. " "What do you think about them as the ; refer to yourself. " "Oh , I don't care about saying anything. am disposed to let the matter drop. I don' like to talk at my own funeral. It doosn' ' look well. It would sound like writing one' : own obituary. " Mr , Caldwcll said this In an Innocent manner nor , with scarcely a suggestion of either sar casm or Irony. Mr. Majors said : "Tho reference made t mo lu the BKI ; In this matter Is not correct The Information came doubtless from Church llowo , who , I think , purposely mis informed Mr. Kosewater's detective. I voted for the bill In the senate and wanted It.to pass , and I also wanted the Investigation. Mr. Slater and others will testify that I was not in the room as stated by your paper. " Clerk Cook , In response to the usual ques tion , said : "Tho expose was good lirst-class. You don't want any better , do you ? It was great , I toll you. " Mr. Brad Slaughter said : "Tho Jir.r says I was in a room with Its suspects. It is not BO. I was blind at the time under the doc tor's care nnd a bandage over my eyes. I was in darkness for a week. As rozards the proposition with which Mr. Rosewater starts out , that fact of Mr. Ilussell coming on the name train with a gambler 1 consider utterly ridiculous. " Senate Proceedings.

Irons and Andrew II. Foskett , executor and executrix of James Irons , deceased , and others , an appeal from the United States circuit court for the north ern district of Illinois. This was a suit to en force the personal liabilities of stockholders for the debts of the Insolvent Manufacturers' National bank of Chicago. A master , ap pointed by the , court below to ascertain the amount of tlio debts and assets of the bank , reported on the 25th day of Mity , 18Mi , that the Indebtedness of the bank at that tlmo was S34G.733 ; that , 09,340 should bo added to that sum for the expenses of the receiver ship , making a total of $410,079 and that the necessary assessment which should bo made on the stockholder to pay said Indebtedness was t3.3 per cent upon the capital stock of $500- 000. Many exceptions were made to the master's report , but they were overruled and the decree was entered against each stock holder sevetally for the amount computed to be dun from him according to the amount of ills stock. From this decree Itlchmond , Com stock and others appealed. This court holds : 1.

That Comstock Is liable on stock sold by him In good faith but not transferred by him on the books , as well as on stock sold with a knowledge of the bank's insolvency. 5.

That the creditors are entitled to Inter est on the dates of the bank as against the stockholders. 7. That the stockholders are not bound to contribute as a debt duo irotn the bank or themselves to a fund for the payment of the expenses of the receivership. The decree of the circuit court.

LEAVITI TARES THE STAND , The Killing of Haddock Eelated iu a Straightforward Manner. ARENSDqnF FIRED THE SHOT. The Testimony Listened to AVIth lirratlilc.ss Interest anil Itn Truth Strongly Impressed on the Im- inoiiHo Audience Present. Bnnsatlonal lny In Court. Sioux CITY , la. , March 28. [ Special Tele gram to the Ur.K. ] This has been by all odd" the most sensational day thus far In the Haddock trial. Heforo the hour of conven ing court It was reported that Lcavltt , the confessor , was to be , placed on the stand by thnstuto. This had the effect of drawing during the morning and afternoon nc-sstons tremendous crowds. The stairways and all approaches to the largo court room were crowded during most of the day and every bit of available space Inside , Including windows dews , aisles and oven the judge's platform , was packed. Among the throng were a largo number of ladles , many of them prominent In temperance work. H Is'needless to state that the proceedings of the day were watched with the deepest and at times breathless In terest. Leavltt was put on the stand carlv this morning and It was not until 2 or 3 o'clock this afternoon when ho completed his graphic story of the great crime" and tragedy and the defense commenced its cioss-examlnatlon. Leavltt was well dressed and made a very favorable Impression. His statements were all made with a posltlveness that added weight and the defense found It impossible to Impeach the same or gain any advantage. Whatever clso Leavltt may have testified to when before the coroner's and crand juries , the general Im pression seems now to bo that he Is telling a straight story and the truth. Melville K. Stone , editor of the Chicago News , who has taken the deepest Interest In this case , Is now here and a close observer of everything that -tiansplres. The llrst witnesses to testify to-day wcro Albert Adams , William Williamson , George A. Lang and Simon Adelshlem. Nothing of importance was developed moro than to corroborate the statement of other witnesses and stroncthcns thoclmlii. Harry Leavltt was then called. His testimony In substance was as follows : 1 know Arensdorf ; bought from S.10 to S75 woithof beer from him every week for my theater. 1 returned from an eastern visit three or four days before the murder of Hev. Haddock. The day before Simonson told mo ho was going to call a special meeting of the saloon men. 1 saw quite a number , and at the suggestion of Simonson 1 joined the saloon keepers' union. 1 went to the meet- ng that night with Doc Darlington. I lirst went Into a saloon and got a drink and then went up stairs. There were present Adels- lielm , Tilcber , Platli , Cormeny , Junk , Doc Darlington , Simonson , Arensdorf , Munch- rath , Uosslgeu , myself and others. Adels- licim presided. Arensdorf was present. Adels- lelm said that ho did not know what tire meeting was canwrror , as it was out of ho regular order. Simonson said It was called for the purpose of maklnc Darlington and myself members of the association. I asked what it cost to join and they said $25. I told them to como up and get the money at the theater , as I did not have the money that night. Datllngtou said I could not show over S5 , but I was admitted. Uesslgcu then uoved to adjourn. The meeting then ad journed. Trclber and Muuchr.ith both called mo ( Arensdorf was In the back part of the room ) . They said "wait a few minutes. " I waited ; so did Simonson. I'relber , Plath , Murcnrath , Arensdorf and some others were waiting In the front room. One of the par ties that remained 1 did not know. Trelbo said ho had succeeded In getting two Dutch men to whip Haddock and Walker , If they were paid for It. Arensdorf said there was § 75 or SbO In the treasury ( Junk's safe ) , aud that ought to be sUfllclcnt. Murchrath asked If the doorkeeper at my place wasn't a good slugger , and I told him ho had slugged one or two at my place. His name was Dan Mo- riurty. Munchrath said ho owed him a board bill and would go with mete to the depot to see him , and that would be a good excuse to broaah him on the matter of "doing up" Haddock. Aronsdorf said we ought to blow or burn down Had dock's and Tumor's housesand | that the breweries eries had too much at stake to be drowned by those . 1 met Munchrath iu front of Nash's drug store on Tuesday at lli0 ! and we went down to the depot and saw Dan Morlarty. He was at the Milwaukee & St. Paul yards. We both talked with him In relation to the matter brought up at thu saloon men's meeting. The conversation was lin l reference to whipping Haddock and Walker If he got paid for It. Wo said that we wanted them llclced. Moriarlty said that he had a good job and wasn't going to lick anybody. This was about 11 o'clock. We offered him S200. 1 was at the court house In the afternoon. The injunction cases were in progress. The audience wan mostly men. 1 staid in the court room ton or hfteen minutes. I saw Fred Munchiath in the court house and George Trieber. Alter supper , In the fore part of the evening , 1 think about 8,1 was in Cochran's gambling house on Fourth street After leaving there 1 went to the Encllsu Kitchen to get a bottle of beer anil some sandwiches to take home. The gambling room was over the Chicago saloon. I came down stairs and went east. At the Sioux National bank corner I met Plath , Tiieber. Munchrath , Peters aud two Germans. 1 did not know the Germans then ; have since learned that they were Granda and "Illsmarek. " They were stand- ins there talking. I conversed with them. Wo were talklnc about Haddock and Tinner going to Greenville for evidence. Trieber proposed to co and see how Haddock cot his evidence. In the hack wore Trieber , Peters , mvsolf and , I think , Plath. The hack drove off. Tuebcr told the driver to go to Green ville , At Greenville Peters got out of the hack and wont Into the Greenville house and asked the proprietor If a roan horse and biiffcv had been there. We drove back to Junk's saloon , got out and went In. Triebi-i paid the driver. He got It of Arensdorf. We got out of the hack und went into the saloon. I can't say who wont In first. I treated to cigars. Wo' were there three or four minutes. I saw Scollard , Grady , Junk and Arensdorf there. I can't say whether Arens- dorf was In there when we went out. Wi went out the front door of the wholesale room , and when on the walk "lllsmarck" came up and said that the buggy had got back. This was Just as we had got on the walk. Arensdorf said , "let's co and see. " We all walked down toward Water stieet Peters , Munchrath , Trelber. Plath , Arens- dort , Sherman , myself and "Bismarck. " We leisurely walked : along. Arensdorf and I'eters took the lead. Henry Sherman walked with mo. 1 baw Jack Hyan next to Weaver's gallery and 1 said , "hello , Jack. " He said , "hello , Leavltt.1' Wo continued walking along and stopped at Dlneen's cor ner. Munchrath then said , as we were wait ing , "If they lick Haddock , clro him a black eye , or something , so as not to get us Into any trouble. " Arensdorf spoke , but I cannot remember the exact language. He said some thing about drunken Dutchman. I haw HaddocK as he came from the stable to .Mie Colrrnhia house corner and started east acro'r Water 'uwauls Dlneen's corner. Arensdoff started towards him. After Haddock got about ten feet from Dlnecii's house Arensdorf and Haddock met. Arensdorf looked In Haddock's tare. The latter raised Ins hand. Arensdnrf passed him one step , turned and tired. Haddock stumbled and fell. Arensdorf went straight abcad. I uUrted to ruu lu two or three uec- ends from the tlmo of the shot. I was so slat tied l eould not stir for a moment. 1 ran towards Water street. [ The witness showed how the shooting took place. The description was just tliosmu : as that given by Fltz- Simmons. Arensdorf stuck his lace In front of the preacher. Arensdorf stepped to tlie north aud back of him and then whirled and fired the fatal sliot.J Hero court adjourned for noon. In the afternoon Leavltt resumed the stand and continued Ills testimony. Ho said that Peteis followed Arensdorf seven or eight feet behind. Witness r.ui to Kyan's house : , where his wife ami others weie. He saw Aiensdort next moinlnir. He said ho Mt well and askeil witness If ho B.XW the shooting. Ho asked Leavitt to keep still and , as a brother Knight of Pythias' ' , ex pected lie would. Some days latur wit ness suggested It would bo bettor to plead self-defense , but ho said no. At the hour for adjournment this evening Leavltt was still on the stand , being cross- examined. During Leavltt's reelt.il of thu story Aiensdorf was very visibly affected. Ho scomiHl to Hush as never boiore during the trial. It Is plain to bo seen that the state is gaining. Everybody seems to bo well sat- ished with the piogress of the trial.

Colonel Fred Grant Speaks Ulspar- ingly ofHIm In an Interview. CHICAGO , March 28. fSpeclal Telegram to the UKH.J Colonel Fred Grant , who Is In the city , was seen to-day by a reporter In regard to Adam Dadeau's latest letter , In which the latter treats of General Grant's relations with James G. IJlalno. "I don't like liadcau's letters , " said Colonel Grant , "as lie has made Rtatcments that I know to be Incorrect , have not much conlidenco In his stories. Concerning my father's relations with Mr. lilalne , however , he presents the facts pretty correctly. That my father had any bad feel ing toward President Garllold for taking Ulalne Into his cabinet I don't know , and It Is probable that if he iiad any bud feeling toward Arthur it was on account of some thing liadeau himself told him. As to the campaign ot IBM , father was for l.o/an , and being for him , said nothing abou * Jllaine or anybody else. 11 Is uot true tlm ho refused to support lilulnu after ho was nominated. Father was a republican and never went back on the ticket. In all official Intercourse between him and lilaine the two were friendly. Hadeau Is not justified in many of his statements. Ho assumes too much. Ho was on father's stalf and was dis liked by every other person on the staff. For that reason , and because ho was friendless and lu a sense helpless , father helped him along and took care of him almost m > to the time of his death. For that reason Biuleati flatters himself. Ik-cause 1m was treated kindly ho imagined ho was consulted about everything. Asa matter of fact , he was never consulted about anything. " Crookfld WhNky Unnnrthnd. ST. Louis , March 2S.

The threatened defection of unionists will probably not exceed ton otes , leaving the government still with a - potent majority.

The mensuie , they bald , concealed under its provisions powers for ho extinction of the liberties of the U'csB , public meetings , fren speech and all ndlvldunl rights.
