Lwtoi.v , Neb , Jan 11. [ Special to Tut
VlM ! . ] In the senate this moining Mr. Han-
corn introduced n resolution that the boaul
of regents of the university make n biennial
report in place of the annual report , vvhieli
is not now received in time to bo of use to
members of the legislature. As It is now ,
Mr. Knnsom explained , the legislature ha'
> jo means of knowing what Is the condition
of the university , mid is called upon to act
blindv ) in making appropilatlons for the sup
port of that Institution.
Mr. Norvnll salu The committee on ruica
is now readjto report , that the rules of tlio
last session KOVcrn the piesent session , ex
ropt tlmt on bills , w hlch Is recommended to
t > c umcnded so as to provide that when u bill
is icpoitcd to the senate it shall bo pitntcd ,
with all its amendments , before a vole is
taken on Its final passage , also adding to the
committees of the senate a committee of five
on soldiers' home , of seven on standing
rommittccs ; and of live on industrial inntituiu
for feeble minded vouti.s.
Mr. Uaymond bald it would be in the power
thesu ninenduic'iits to
of a commilten iimi i
kill u I1"'with ' aiij possibility of piotest on
the part of the soaate. The first mid second
reading of bills receives no attention I also
object to any new standing committees The
committee on public- lands and buildings can
rcallj do the whole woik.
Mr. Sutherland thought that bills should
tcitalnlj be icported badt so as toglvomem
bcis the opportunltv to cconomuo them be
foio thoj nio punted.
Mr Nesbitt said that the object of the pro
posed amendment was to contiol expenses
lessen them. If a bill is reported unfavor-
\ \ nblv there is no object in h wing it punted.
Mr. Norval explained that thoiulopie-
Aiovs legislature had idwiiVH been , ns it is
now pioposcd to make it. bo far as tlio new
committees are concerned , theio is no in
stitution in the state , which needs to
be in the hands of u committee mete
than docs the faoldlcis' homo. Its inteicsts
should be guutdcd moio than is possible at
the hands of the committee on public lands
ami buildings.
Air. Haiisom If it takes u two tlihds vote
to suspend the rules wo could not under
this amendment have a bill piinted unless
two thiids of tlio senate shot'ld vote to have
it done. Tliosoldieis are not growing old
any faster than v.o arc , or than nro the in
mates of the other Institutions. Theio is no
disposition to ciovvd out the Soldiers' homo ;
they will bo tieated with fairness and
Mr. Haj'inond It is true that n committee
in charge of a bill has gre it inlluenco Thej-
can carry n bill in their pockets till too Into
to have it fairly considered , or suppicss it al
together. Lot us be open , fair and squuio
in the m liter , and allow each member for
himself to lend a measure bcfoio the commit
leo report on it.
Mr. Nesbitt There was a great
outcrj' n w ek ugo in favor of
the strictest economy. Now
several senators frequently Introduced bills
on the same subject anil covering the same
ground , and this me isuro gives us the op-
poi limit j' to save some $2OJO during the ses
sion by not printing then1 all , but only these
which me finally ngrecd on bj' committees
Mr. Norv al offered at. amendment "Unless
otherwise oideied by a m ijoritj- vote of the
senate , " which was adopted , and the report
llnally went tinough , extia committees aud
Mr. Taggart moved that a committee of
thice bo appointed to confer with the com
mittee ol five appointed by the house , to 10-
poit on the pi luting of the governor's mes
sage , which was adopted , and Messrs. Tag
gart , Pope and Walbach appointed as such
A motion waa offered by Mr. Ilansom that
the senate ndjourn to Mondaj1 at 2 o'clock.
Mr. Nesbitt opposed tlio motion bcciuso ho
thought this course would prolong the ses
sion unduly. The people expect us to net in
u business-like manner. Mr. Sutherland
thought it to bo the duty of the members to
remain and transact their business and get
through with it as soon as possible An
amendment was adopted that the senate ad
journ till 10 o'clock to morrow.

conferees , sail the conference repoit wil
ho cillcd up promptly and adopted Ho will
bo backed by Senators M.mderson and Pud'
doclc , who have worked with Representative
McSlmno like be.ivors.
A dead lock 1ms existed in the house for
moio than a week. It is conducted by
Weaver , of low n , who Is lighting for the
Oklahoma bill. Ho regularly makes mani
fold motions e.ich day when the house meets
for an adjournment , demanding the lives and
noes on eveiy vote and much time Is wasted
in loll calls. As is well known , n motion to
adjourn is of the highest possible pilvilegc
and takes pi oeedcnco over all things else. It
is always in order. Some ono supposed to be
known to Air. McSb.ino , put up a job on
Weavei to-day by which Chairman Dibble ,
of the committee on public buildings and
grounds , sccuiod recognition bv tlus speaker
and culled up the tonleienco mpoit on tlio
Milwaukee building bill. which is
identical to and preceded the Omalii
mexsiiic. .lust after ono of Weaver's
motions to adjoin n was votdd dow n , Dibble
was recognised bi the speaker. Ho said that
ho wanted so piescnt u ptivileged rcpoit.
Before ho could announce what ho had ,
Weavei wildlj exclaimed : "I move that the
housoadjoiun. " Hut the chair had iccog-
ni/cd the gentlcm in irom South C irolimi , to
makoa piivilegcd report , "and till that is
disposed of the motion of the gentleman
fiom Io\\u to adjoin n cannot be entci tamed , "
said the speaker. Up to this con
fusion had reigned for an hour. The ruling
cieated a commotion. The speaker was tak
ing the bit between his teeth and was
inning away from the usual proceed
ing. Wea\cr protnstod and there was a
livelv scrimmage , but the speaker w as linn
and the Milwaukee bill came up. After u
v cry MIDI t statement by Dibble ns to the con
ditions under which the conferees had
reached an agreement , ho asked for the
oidcrmgof the pioviqus question. At this
Junction Seuatois Mandcrson , Paddock and
Spoonerenteicd on the floor of the house.
Mr. MeShano was circulating aiound pretty
lively among the members , begging tliem to
stand by the Milwaukee bill , as by the fate
of that measuie , the Omaha bill was to faro.
The scnatois named began doing lively work
too. It was exciting 'when Weaver got up
and began to oppose the bill. Ho
said ho was not oppo ftdto at on account of
any dement , but because the Oklahomi bill
should bo fiist considered. If the Oklahoma
bill was first given a chance ho would not
object to the public building or any other
honest billTnero was a wianglo over the
revclancy of his speech to the question under
considuiation. Then Wca\cr attempted to
have the house adjourn. Failing to have his
motions recognized by the speaker he de
manded a quorum on every step , and finally
the ayes and nays on ordering the pievious
question , the object being of course to con
sume the dav before a final vote was taltcn
The speaker was prepared for such an emer
gency , howoer , and stood Hrmlv to IUR rul
ing On the vote , finally reach to agree
to tlio confeience report ) the ayes were 199
and tlio noes weio 51. So the report and
bdl passed. In a minute there were clus
tered around Weaver , Senators Paddocic and
Mnndeison and Representative McShane , all
pleading with him to lot the confercnca re
port on the Omaha bill come up , but he
would not yield He fought like a ilger.
There was a repetition of the tactics em
ployed to defeat the consideration of the
Milwaukee bill. By the assistance of the
speaker , and almost the cntiiu house , the
Nebraska quorum was retained nud the pre
vious question at last oidored. It looked for
an lioui as though 5 o'clock , the time for ad
journment under a special rule ,
would nirlvo before the final vote
could bo reached. But there is an end
to all moital things , and the ayes and noes
on the adoption of the conference report was
calied , Chairman Mills , W. S. Scott and
other distinguished domociats who have not
been seen m the house for weeks , appeared
and voted. The result was ayes , I'.Ki ; noes ,
W. So the conference report on the Omaha
public building bill , about which HO much
has been said for neaily a year pist , was
adopted together w ith the bill itself. The
Nebraska men woio congratulated on every
hand. Then folluwed u light for the conference -
once report on the San Francisco building
bill. This measure did not huvo
the active workers that the Omaha
bill did , and pending its consideration the
house adjouincd. Had it not been for the
lomnrkublo and arbitiary ruling of the
speaker and the effective work of the No-
binska statesmen named , the Omaha bill
would not have been adopted , because it
would not have been reached. It may bo
adopted by the senate to-morrow. Senators
Mamlorson and Paddock say it will be called
up promptly , and theio is no doubt whatever
that it will bo passed by the
senate , as there is little , and no
factional opposition to it there. The bill
will likely roach President Cleveland on
Monday nest , or Tuesuay at the fai thcst ,
n i id barring nccidont. Sonu question has
boon laised as to whether the president will
sign the bill. Mr McSlmno sajs ho will do
ovcrj thing possible in the waof bringing
democratic influence to bear , and Senators
Mundurson and Paddpok will see Mr. Cleve
land , and thcio is not much danger of a
vote , With the adoption of thoieport by the
senate will close one of the most persist
ently fought battles over waged for a public
measure. The. people of Omaha ought to
congratulate themselves.
A ouiinus SUIT ,
Secretary Vilas to day decided a cut Jens
case , which has been before the interior de
partment since 1872 , involving the light bo-
tweeu a settler and a 'railroad corporation for
the possession of a strip of the bottom of the
Missouri liver. The river has a babit of er
ratically changing 1U coin so , sometimes
leaving Its old bed some miles away
and cutting for luelf a new channel.
On the line between Ncbuiska and Dakota
it come within the limit of the grant of the
Sioux City & Pacific ruihoad. The stream
changed its channel and loft | > ait of its bed
high and dry. Patrick Moimhuii made a
homestead cntn of the land in Ib71. The
railroad claimed the land , and several de
cisions were tendered against Man.ihaii' The
latter claimed that tlio road could not claim
the land , because it lnd ; no existence when
thogaant to the road was made , as it was
the bottom of the Missouri river. The road
asserted that its grant covered everything
In the shape ol "land , however lony it
had existed. Many years arc spent by the

ncbses swore that the laud had grown grass

that the land existed practically drv when
the grant to the load was made , tho'sccio -
