\VAsnixoTo.v , Dec. 3. [ Special Telegram
to the HUB. ] The caucus of the democrats
in the house to-night was most harmonious.
So lovely was it that several members
wanted the blood of each other as a memento
of the occasion , and the lovely green carpet
cnmo very near being stained red with goro.
The proceedings wont tamely along at first ,
and Carlisle , Lecdom and Clarke were all rc-
nomlnated for nnd
speaker , sorgeant-at-arms
clerk respectively , but the pleasantries began
over the doorkeeper's light. It w.isattemptcd
to postpone the nominating of a doorkeeper
until after the other ofllcers were ,
chosen , but this was not accceded
to and the fun began. After
Donclson and Hurt were put in nomination ,
Hrcekenridgo , of Arkansas , made his bitter
personal attack on Donclson. Ho was ex
ceedingly vindictive , and stirred the ire of the
old doorkeeper's friends. Ho spoke lot
fifteen minutes an finally sat down.
Theo. Hlount , of Georgia , rose nnd began
hib defense of Donclson. Ho denied in tote
the charge against Donclson In such a degree
that Urcckcnridgo sprang to his feet , and in
language very plain and forcibly called Mr.
Hlount u liar. The pcntlemnn from Georgia
did not say a word , but walked over towards
Hrcckenridgo who was not fur from
him. U1IT , ho lot go his good right
arm anJ it landed , some say on
Mr. Hrcekcnridgo's nose. At any rate the
nu'iuber from Arkansas went down toward
the ground , but r.illiod enough to como to his
feet und hit Hlount an under blow in the
nee , which sent th Georgia member oil his
feet. The two then cumo together and
clinched. Hreckenridgo got Hlount by the
neck and was chocking him badly , and the
greatest excitement eiibued. It took but a
minute for tno combat to assume its nemo
when Colonel Thomas Co.ikley , of Now York ,
rushed ypou the Kceno of bsttlo and separated
the combatants. The news of the
scrap spread like wild flro. A
nogm employe rushed into Donclson
licudquni tors shouting , "My God , they are
having it hot and lienvv in thar Mussa
Hlount and Hreekcnridgo am at it hard and
blood is flowing. "
" \Vhp Is ahead I" asked ono of Donclgon's
"Captain Donelson , every time , " rejoined
the nngrn , "for Mussu 1 llama am lamming
the llfo out of Massa Hreolouiiridgo. "
Ono ot the men who had Interfered iu the
light said that Hiwkenridjro was developing

Bennison Bros ! ,
1519-1521 Douglas St.1
mittcc appointed to outline a plan of action
with regard to the admission of the now
democratic senators against whoso title some
question has been raised. The committee ,
consisting of Senators Pugh , Blackburn ,
Harris and Vest , reported that it had card-
fully considered all the facts in the cases of
Senators Turple , of Indiana , Faulkner , of
West Virginia , and all the other new demo
cratic senators , and reached the conclusion
that all wore fully entitled to their seats. It
was unanimously i-csolvcd that the entire
list of new democratic senators wore entitled
to their scats , nud In so far'as the
democrats could influence the matter , they
should bo sworn in Monday. It was the
unanimous opinion of the caucus that no de
parture from precedent should bo made , and
no obstuclo to the admission of all the sen
ators-elect should bo anticipated. The com
mittee also reported that they had examined
all the credentials of the republican senators-
elect and found several upon which objections
could legitimately bo based. The facts were
laid before the caucus and discussed , but thD
defects being merely technical , they deter
mined to make no objections to their admis
sion. An understanding was reached , how
ever , that should the admission of any demo
crat bo objected to , the party would act as a
unit , according as circumstances might
seem , to require. It was made known
that democrats held the advantage
in the fact that Senator Jones , , of Nevada , is
absent and paired with Senator Hearst , who.
begins u new term and is therefore not yet
n senator. Upon request , ' the republican
caucus at once assented , as proposed . by
Senator Keiina , who has' charge of the demo
cratic pairs , to pairing Senator Jones' with
some democrat already sworn in. This re
duces the voting strength of each party t6
twenty-four. Senators Beck and Kenna
were elected respectively chairman and Heorer
tary of the democratic caucus to serve during
the com Ing session. ;
The Ilcpiiblicau Canons.
WAsnixoroN , Dec. 3. The republican
members of the house of representatives
held their first caucus of this _ session this
afternoon. Of the republican representation
of 153 members 117 were in attendance.
None of the four Independent members-elect
were present. Cannon , of Illinois , and Mc-
Comas , of Maryland , were respectively rq-
olectcd chairman und secretary of the
caucus. MelCinley , of Ohio , nominated
Thomas H. Hoed , of Maine , for speaker ,
and the nomination was confirmed by ac
clamation. Heed made a brief speech , in which"
ho counselled party harmony ami predicted
republican victory in the next presidential ;
election. Nominations for the remaining
ofllcers of the next house were then mudo as
follows : Edmond MePherson , of Pcnnsyl-1
vanla , by Heprcsontatlvo Hayno , for clerk ;
Daniel Shepherd , of Illinois , by Adams , for
sorgiMiit-ut-arms ; W. T. Fitch , of Ohio , bv
Hiitterworth , for doorkeeper ; Charles H.
Greer , of Dakota , by Nelson , for postmaster ,
and Francis \V. Thomas , ot Indiana , by
Browne , for chaplain. The nominations
weror agreed to. Mr. Thomas , nominated for
chaplain , is minister of the society of Friends
and is well known in the west as the
"Quaker preacher. " Only incidental men
tion was made of the tariff and no attempt
was made to outline a policy.
Tlio Cutting Affair Aj-aln.
WASHINGTON , Dee. 3. The oOlcials of the
department of state are at a loss to account
for the fooling that appears to have orison
in Mexico as a result of the discussion of the
Cutting case. It Is said tno subject has been
presented to the Mexican government in ac
cordance with the forms of the International
law with a view to the settlement of the
question of extra territorial Jurisdiction , and
not with any intention of endeavoring to en-
forcotho voxutlous claim in nn arbitrary
manner. As a matter ot fact there has been
no now presentation of the Cutting claim
against the Mexican government. Na.lixeU
money indemnity has been demanded and
nothing mild that would , in the judgment of
the doi..irtmpnt-warrant the creation of any
feeling between the two countries.

WASHINGTON , Dec. 3. [ Special Telegram

Pugilist Jim' * Plans.
Cmc\fo ! , Dec. U , [ Special Telegram to
the Hr.i : . ] Congressman James Laiid , of
Hastings , Neb. , was at the Grand Pacific
hotel last evening. Mr. Laird said ho was
going to advocate the establishment of an ex
perimental agricultural station in Nebraska ,
with an appropriation behind it that would
make it a success. A number of Ficneh faci-
ontists had asserted that sugar cane could be
grown In Nebraska with a piollt to farmers ,
andjho wanted thai fact practically demon
strated , even If it cost a couple of millions of
dollars. He was also enthusiastic about the
foreign immigration bill , which was defeated
by the hist congress. Ho proposed that in
stead of admitting over a quarter of a million
of Ignorant , improvident and in many cases
criminal immigrants annually to America , n
law should bo inadu that no illiterate , im
moral or socialistic Immigrants should bo al
lowed to land on American shores. The
United States did not want communists , an
archists and dynamiters hero , mid the only
way to prevent their growth in America waste
to prevent them from coming hero at all , and
ho was going to work with all his strength to
secuio the passage of his bill this winter.

A Little Legislation Necessary.
Before the lapse of many more years Omaha
Runners will rcali/o the urgent necessity of a
geese , duck and snipe law. That the shoot
ing is becoming poorer and poorer with each
season at the once famous grounds through
out this state is easily seen by all. The past
full was the poorest .season known here to the
oldest inhabitants. Not even n single re
spectable bag of ducks was made , while the
gcpso killed along the Pintle , the most cele
brated grounds in the country ten years ago ,
could bo counted on your lingers. The abolishment
ishment of spring shooting altogether will bo
advocated in the legislature at the next ses
sion and nn cffoi t will be made to enact a law
for nn open and close season for both ducks
and snipe , and mnybo gcesb. That the pack-
snlpo , Wllsoni , galllnugo , have no legislative
protection whatever , is simply preposterous.
They are stringently protected throughout
every state in the union save Nebraska.
Prospective City League.
A movement is on foot for the organisation
of n city base ball league-for the coming sea

local amateur nines hero , and several of them

no end of sport in a series of championship
