Senator Bowcn's amendment to the sundry civil bill for the appropriation of F-WO.OOO for preliminary services for the purpose of buildIng - Ing reservoirs at the head waters of streams for storing of water and for the Irrigation of arid regions caused quite a lively debate In the donate this afternoon. The senators from the states of Nov.ul i , and Colorado , together with Senators Mandcrson , Call and Morgan advocated the amendment , and Messrs. Plum and Deck opposed it. The amendment is In line with the bill Introduced early In the session and favorably reported from Mr. Paddock's ' committee on the Mississippi river and its tributaries. Senator Manderson ad vocated It earnestly and regretted the nbscnco of his colleague , Senator Paddock , as that gentleman , ho was sure , would liuvo seine warm words to say on behalf of the amendment. Senator Manderson called attention to the great benellt which has been derived from irriga tion in Colorada and Nevada , and stated that during a visit to Arizona and New Mexico ice the geologists had pointed out to him the evidences of irrigating ditches thut must huvo existed during the Spanish occupation. lie called attention to the fact that whfitthoy once called the "great American desert" embraces In its area what Is now the state of Nebraska and that during his stay in the state ho has seen the arid region almost eliminated from the map through the . advances in cultivation made possible by irrigation which has brought about an increased and more equable distribution of the rainfall. Experiments of this kind , ho argued , would prove of enormous benefit to the whole country and ho intioduccd Into his remarks a letter from Governor Taylor calling the attention of the Nebraska delega tion and throiK'h them of congress to the necessity of taking some slops towards pre venting the further depotlon of the water of the Phitte. Senator Mumlorson thought thut these reservoirs would nmko a vast amount of territory now Incapable of cultiva tion as fort I Id us any In the land. The amendment was finally adopted. ix-iiovEiixou : i-oiiTKit's WITHIHIVWAI , . Indiana republicans in congress weru con siderably disappointed to-day upon receiving the announcement thut ox-Govcrnornor Al bert Porter , their favorite , hud refused to accept the nomination for governor. Tho.v say Porter is stronger with the laboring ele ment than any other man In the state , but there are other aspirants to the nomination who huvo moro strength in other directions and who will average up as well at tha polls , It is probable that Major Stcelo of Marion , who has four times been elected to congress from a demoeratlo district and Is now a mem bcr of the house , or General Alvin P. Hovey , of Evansvllle , who was elected to congress by 1,300 majority two years ape from n dis trlct having over three thousand democratic majority , will bo the nominee , Both are iiu nionsoly strong among the soldkrs and tin / masses.

The Latest Developments in the Dakota Abduction Case. A BLOODY FRACAS NEAR NELIGH. Two Men and Ono Woman Very Itadly Cut Up SiuiHtrokc at Ncbrnnkix City A Norfolk Minis ter Hurt. The Dakota Sensation. FnnvoNT , Neb. , July 30. [ Special to THE HUB. ] The plot to the Shaver-Peterson abduction case , heretofore mentioned , con tinues to thicken. The writs of habeas corpus sued out to release Shaver , the preacher , were returnable at ten o'clock this morn I m. , but owing to other writs having been sued out taking the case Into the juris diction of the district court , thcso were not heard this morning. The latter were issued at the Instance of the girl , to secure her release from the custody of the ofllccrs who are detaining her at the instance of her father , H. M. Steele. Peterson , the husband of the girl , is not hero. Ho Is being represented by Deputy Sheriff Walker , of Custor county , Dakota , who bus employed on attorney. The writs of habeas corpus will bo heard by Judge Marshall to-morrow afternoon , when several witnesses will ar rive from tlcrmosa , Dakota. The whole question hinges on whether the girl is fifteen years old or not. If she is , then her father has a right to her guardianship and Shaver , who has a power of uttornoy from the father , will bo Instilled In his action. This is on the ground that the Dakota statutes ilx the ago of majority at fifteen years. The career of the Peterson girl and her husband has been brief but it has been de cidedly thrilling. Ono week ago yesterday the girl got permission of her father to visit a friend near Hcrmosa. When she arrived at her friend's house she found preparations being made for her ( the friend's ) marriage. She accordingly sent word to Peterson , her lover , to Join her there , whereupon the four drove to Koekville , where they were united as two lawfully wedded pair by Ju ° tico Me- Nown. When the father of the girl dis covered this secret marriage ho was exceed ing wroth. Ho Had Peterson arrested and tried twice on trumped-up charges , both trials resulting in his acquittal. It was while ho was under arrest the last time that Shaver began to appear in the case. Steele got him to go to the girl and pretend friendship for her , which he did , making her believe that ho would take her to her husband. Hut in stead of doing tills ho spirited her away and got her us far as Fremont before they were stopped. The community from which they came is evidently taking n deep interest in the case. Sheriff Porter , of Cuiter county , yesterday telegraphed to his deputyWalker , who is hero representing Peterson , ns fol lows : "Tho people are witn you and Petersen - son and will furnish money. Return Shaver at all hazards. " It begins to look as If nil Caster county would be huro before the case finally terminates. Thinks the Sioux Will Not Sign. CiiAniioN , Neb. , July 30.

[ Special to Tun Bus. ] The recent action of the executive coiumittcosof the Hastings board of trudo in addressing to the stuto board of arbitration a protest against the reduction of the local tariff for railroads is not expressive of the feeling that prevails amongtho business men of this city.

[ Special Telegram to Tni : BKE.I A 'conference of the chairmen ot the republican state committees of Indiana , Wisconsin , Michigan and Illinois , was held this , afternoon. Chairman J. W. Huston , of Indiana , said , in regard to the situation in his state. "It is very hopeful. " "Is there trouble in the republican party in Indiana , growing out of the fact of ex-Gover nor Porter taking the race for govornorl" "I should suy nono. While Governor Porter ter was evidently the choice of a majority of Indiana republicans , still I believe that other nominations might bo made that would cull forth in supiwrt of the ticket the greatest possible clTort and enthusiasm. Tlio repub licans of Indiana huvo always been free in the expression of their individual preferences before the nom inations , but after n nomination has been made they always glvo u united and de termined support to the ticket.

" "Upon what do you base your opinion I" "First , because the party generally be- .iovcs In the ! necessity of thorough party or ganization , and bccauso such organization is low being effected In every county in the ituto. Secondly , because the republicans of mlluna were never more enthusiastic or elo- .ermined to succeed than at present. Wo carried the state in l&SO. electing our entire stuto ticket , as the result of party organbu- ' .ion , and our organization at this time , in my udgmcut. is far in advance of what it was at i llko period in ISbO.

" "How about tins mooteel defection of the abor vote as against Mr. Harrison ? " "I think it is greatly exaggerated. The aboring classes in Indiana will not bo con rolled by inlsstatonicnta or prejudices , but will thoroughly undcrstund Senator Harri son's attitude toward the laboring classes. They will accord him credit for all ho has done in their behalf. While it bus been sought diligently to prejudice the laboring men against him , I think it will prove of avail. General Harrison's position on all questions affecting the wage workers of this country has always been that of a true friend , and General Harrison has no moro earnest or enthusiastic supporters in the state than such as belong to the laboring classes. Republican clubs , composed wholly of railroad men , are being organized in the railroad centers throughout the state , and they are most enthusiastic in General Harri son's support. " "How about this 'dollar a day for working- men' and Mr. Harrison's Chinese question i" "Mcro bugaboos , such as should bo used only to scare children. " Washington Briefs.

Commissioner Catnpholt Proven Him self to He Very Well Informed. DM MOINES , In. , July .m Commissioner Campbell was again on the stand to-day. Ho thought that nil roads having over $4,000 n inllo gross earnings should huvo the sumo schedule. The commissioner accepted the basis for fixing the rates made UBO of by rail road men , taking allowance , however , for earnings , expenses , curvatures , etc. , etc. , Hems apparently not considered by railroad rate makers. Ho believed that the people of Iowa would bo losers by $ , ' 0HK , ( ) a\1uy if the present Injunction were to bo nnulo perpetual and the May 10th tariff continued. The wit ness produced some correspondence showing nu Increase oi from 20 to over fit ) per cent in rates under the May 10th tariff , and espec ially heavy discriminations against Iowa and in favor of Minneapolis on flour , and Chicago on lumber. Ho thought that If railroads could voluntarily accept extremely low rates on through business they could st-nd u it-J dnctlon on their high rates In Iowa. The counsel asked a series of questions de signed to find out what thu witness hud Icnrncel since ho bccune a commissioner. Mr. Campbell told several things ho hud found out. Ono was that the commercial in terest of the state was suffering by reason of discrimination on the part of rnllrouds. The proprietor of un oil mill utBoone , for Instance , hud been so discriminated against that ho has compelled to discontinue business , and upon his representing to the Northwestern com pany that if ho could not get relief ho could not live , the company's officer told him , "Ho dlel not ntivo to live , " and he was compelled to tear down his mill and move to Missouri. A Jobber of Dubuque had been offered by n railroad company free transportation of his goods if ho would leave that city und take his business to Pluttsiuouth , Neb. Ho hud also learned that the trunk lines hud conducted their business to the prejudice and Injury of the weaker roads about which they are so anxious now. Ho hud found that the corporations had , within the last year , given special rates to individuals and localities In this state to the prejudice of other Individuals and localities. Counsel wanted to know whether , in the opinion of the witness , the railroad tariff of May 10 was not ono that simply abolished such spcciul rates. Witness answered that It WHS not neces sary that the companies , in abolishing these special rates , should hold on to the Highest rates In all cases , which ho thought they did us a general thing. Ho believed In raising lower rates and reeluclng high ones \\hcn arranging schedules. Sunstrokes at Sjouv City. Sioux CITV , la. , July 80.

THE TRUST INVESTIGATION , Report Submitted to the Houao by the Oommlttoo , TWO COMBINATIONS TOUCHED , Hi-suit of the Inquiry Into the Stand * nrd Ull and Huitnr Monopolies llo\v the Companies arc Operated. Made Their Iteport. WASHINGTON , July 30. The house committee too on manufactures to-day submitted tha following report concerning the Investigation of trusts , which was ordered printed : The committee on manufactures respectfully - fully report thut , noting on the authority and resolution of this house passed Jiiuuury 25 , they liuvo proceeded to Investigate anil inquire Into the nmtturs niul tilings referred to In wild resolution ; mid having examined witnesses and papers In relation thereto , they huvo been unalilo to complete such in quiry and investigation and respectfully re- pert the following resolution with the rceom- inundation that It pass. Your commlttco further report that the names of the various trusts aud cuinblna- tlotiB havu been furnished to yourcotnmlttca ; that the number of such combinations m large , and that your committee , In culling witnesses and taking testimony , proceeded upon the following plan of Investigation 1. o. , to Imiulro : 1. With relation to trusts or combinations In lines of business which are connected wither or use articles In which there exists u com -f petition In our market between the domestic product and the foreign | > roduct , Imported , and dutiable under our tariff laws. 2. With relation to such combinations deal- nt : In articles which are not Imported Into his country or are not subject to Import utios. 3. With relation to such combinations ieullng In articles which are subject to toxa- lon under the internal revenue lawn of the United States. Your commlttco has particularly directed ts inquiry Into the methods and extent ot ho business douo or controlled by the sugar rust and the Standard oil trust , and ro pcctfully submit herewith testimony taken , before It In relation to these two trusts. Doth f them are organized upon substantially ho sBino plan. From the testi mony it appears that there exists a certain number of corimrntions , organized under the laws of the difforbnt states , and subject to their control ; thatthoso 'orporntlons ' liuvo Issued their stock to vari ous individuals , and that these- individual itockholdcra have surrendered their stock to rusteos named in the agreement creating1 heso trusts , and accepting In lieu thereof icrtillcules Issued by the trustees named heroin. The agreements provide hat the various corporations whoso stock Is surrendered to the trustees shall prcservn their identity and carry on their business. In the sugar trust the iigrccmcnt provision Is that the several cor porations shnll maintain their separate or- nl/iitions and each shall carry on and con- luct its own business. In the Standard oil trust the ugi cement Is provided thut all prop erty , real and personal , assets and business , shall bo transferred to and vested In sola several companies. The duties ot the trustees nro restricted to the receipts' of the dividends declared by the various coiporations and the distribution of the ag gregate of them to the holders of trust cer tificates pro ratu , and to holding and voting upon the stock of tlio corporation. The trus- tecs in both cases , upon the stand as wit nesses , speclllcally denied that the trustees , as such , ever do any other business than toi receive and distribute thcso dividends and exercise tlio only other function given td them by the trust agreements that is , to hold the Mock of the various cor | > orutiona niul exercise the right of stockholders in such corporation. The euro with which thai1 trustees avoid making any agreement ro- > luting to the commodities appears from the testimony us to the an angemont with the oil producers' association in the fall of Ib87. The olllcorsi of the producois1 association tes tified that the agreement was then made with the Standard Oil tiust by which -.COO.OOO barrels of oil belonging to the Standard Oil trust was to bo sut apart foe the benefit of the association upjn Its agree ment to curtail the pi eduction of crude oil at least 17,000 bai rcls per diem. The witnesses undoubtedly undeistood that the arrangements were with the trustees of the Standard Oil trust , but a written agreement } produced , and now in evidence , shows that it was made with andisslirned by the Standard Oil company , of Now York , ono of the com panies whoso stock is held by the trustees , and that the Standard Oil trust , or the trus tees ' thereof as such , aio not parties to it , nor Is cither of them re sponsible for the carrying out of the agree ment. This form of combination was obviously desired for the purpose of iclicvlng the trusts and trustees f rum the charge of any breach of conspiracy laws of the various states , or of being a combination to regulate or control the price or production of any commodity. Ilcnco they assert that the corporations thmnsolve.i , which control and regulate the price of commodities and the extent of pro duction , and having tangible property , re main with their organ i/.ition Intact and dis tinctand not in combination with each other ; that the stockholders who owned ouly the stock and by well-settled legal rules had no legal title in the piopcrty of the corpoi n'.ions , entered into agreements and sold their stock in the corporations and accepted In payment trust certificates , and that the trustees receive and hold only tha stock of the corporation ? ! and have no legal right to any of the property of the eoipora- tion , and neither buy nor sell anything or comblno with any ono to fix prices or regu late tin ) production of any commodity. The rerort goes on to say that it is plain , that the combinations , the test In ony conccrn- iiiirhich is herewith submitted , have been , intentionally formed so as to avoid , if possi ble , the chargi ) that the trust , as ouch , or the trustees in that capacity , either fixed the price or icfjnlated the production of an avtl wo of merchandise or commerce.
