JJKU. I Most of thu legislature has gone
liomc to draw from its fountain of inspira
tion. The senate chamber has been deserted
except by the very few senators who have
Bet up their household goods in Lincoln for
the time being. Submission remains the up
permost topic among the few herd , nnd the
patriots never tire of tolling how they fought
nnd bled for their country. These righteous
f-cntUuncn nro also spinning yurns nnd filling
attentive cars with talcs of brazen bribery.
They attribute iho absence of a liquor lobby
earner In the session to the Peorla whisky
trust , which , they assert , Instructed Peter
Her not to exert himself unless the senate
passed the Lindsay bill. These virtuous
Colons pretend to know that there was WO.OOO
In Iho pot before $1-1,000 of it got away. Sev
eral representatives who voted ngainst sub
mission nro under the Imputation of having
received a share of the tardy boodle , nnd u
number ot the hollcr-thnn-thous nro willllng
to be applauded on suspicion of having re
sisted the blandishments of the wily
seducers. If one-fourth of the insinuations
of the submissionists had any tangible basis
In fact , it would bo ground enough for an in
vestigation , but no move In that direction
Las been proposed.
V * As Indicated by Tim Hr.r.'s dispatches , the
fight on submission has been a pretty oven
struggle , with the chance of battle wavering
in jiicurtalnty. When the special train re
turned with Senator Tageart at half past 11
last night the submissionists were not agreed
us to their course. A Imsty conference of
thu leaders was held on the floor , und the
management of the contest was put Into
Church Howe's hands. When the gentleman
Irom Kcmnlm moved to concur in thu house
amendments ho told the senate that submis
sion was a settled fact it was only n ques
tion of taking it mixed or straight. Then ho
unfolded his scheme for putting the original
Lindsay bill through the house if the senate
refused to pull the triggers on the double-
barreled arrangement. Nesbitt , till then nn
unknown quantity , made another of his little
teeter board speeches , landing finally iu
Camp Howe , and that settled it.
1'opo Joined their forces , explaining
that by thus straddling ho gave
a vote to botli factions in his district. Polk ,
who dodged in the senate last week , came up
to the scratch. These two accessions made
the twenty-three ayes.
The demands of THE Bui : and other papers
for reasonable economy in the management
of state affairs are bearing fruit. Both
Louses : uro calling on various expensive state
institutions for detailed reports of their
operations , which will be subjected to the
closest scrutiny. Hansom's bill to abolish
the live Block commission is meeting with
much favor among the farmers in the house ,
nnd ut this writing Its passage is probable.
U'he state university is coming in for atten
tion , and some of its barnacles will bo
knocked off. Prof. Billings and his hog
cholera will have to go , and the appropria
tions for other departments will bo reduced.
ITlio militia will bo put on shorter rations ,
too. There is a suspicion thai Iho lasl ap
propriation has not been spent wisely and
carefully , and the semite has a search war-
fcant out for information on that score.
Other institutions will undergo a similar
Bcrutiny , and tlicro will bo rotrcnchmcul nil
along the line that is , if Iho members seek
ing appropriations do not inako
Bueh a shameful combine ns dis
graced the last , legislature. . It is the scheme
ot the sportsmen to hold the appropriation
bills till the end of the session and then run
them through under whip and spur. Senator
Mesbltt is making an effort to secure for the
ponute nn opportunity to carefully consid r
the appropriations. Ho has put through a
resolution asking the/liouso to send its bills
ever not later than February 16. It is not
likely the house will meet the senate's
Wishes ns to date , but if the bills reach the
tvcst end of the capilol by Marcti 1 , it will bo
to jKjlut gained.
Thu apparent neglect of the railroad lobby
> s commented on , but it is only apparent.
Epics are on watch , but thus far they have
little occasion for alarm. The number of
bills affecting the railroads is surprisingly
email. The principal measure in the house is
Hull's bill , fixing n schedule of maximum
{ rates , but it has made little progress. Tha
Donate ) commlttco has had only two railroad
iillls before It. One is to tax sleeping and
joining cars , nnd the other is to luuko all rail-
jroad t'ransferaolo by delivery. Senator
Sutherland's resolution ordering the trans
portation board to makon schedule of freight
rates , has provoked no discussion and little

day telegraphed to Bulfour , chief secretary
for Ireland , saying that the treatment to
which William O'Brien had been subjected
since his Incarceration in the Clonuicl Jail
had excited intense disgust In Ireland. Sexton -
ton says that for thirty-six hours O'Brlou
had remained naked und is now speechless.
Thu prison ofllcials , considering O'Brien to

Balfour for orders. Sexton therefore urged
Balfour to Issue orders that the violent treat
ment of O'Brien be at once stopped , and
warned him that public anger wus rapidly
Hearing the point where restraint would be
impossible. Bulfour refused to answer tha
communication from Sexton. Arrangements
are being made for holding meetings every *

Senator William M. Kvnrts , of Now York ,
will not bo surprised or displeased if ho Is
asked to take Ihe attorney generalship under
President Harrison. In fact ho expects mi
invitation of this kind and will accept. There
was a dinner given last night at which there
were about fifteen of the most prominent
republican ami democratic senators present ,
Ala tlmo when tongues began to limber
under the warmth of the courses ono of the
guests proposed the health of "William M.
Evurts , the next attorney general , " Every
man arose , quaffed oft his beverage , and
then Mr. Evarts responded. Ho
thanked his friends for the compliment ,
and in such a way that nil
recognized something moro than mere pas
time in the proceedings. The incident pro
voked not a lilll'j comment , and on the
strength of It there was a general expression
that Mr. Evart's selection to the attorney
generalship would not only bo a good one ,
but that it was the desire of all present , nnd
furthermore that it was probable. An effort
was made to keep the mailer n secrcl , bul it
has cropped oul , nnd at the capltol much
favorable comment was made upon It.

So far as the Now York republicans In
Washington are concerned there will bo no
disappointment if the secretaryship of the
treasury goo * to the west. They expect this
to bo done. There are no astute politicians

the past three or four weeks believed that
New York would secure the financial port
Who will constitute the council of Presi
dent Harrison was tlio topic of discussion by
Senator lllseock and Representative Will-
lam Walter Pholns , as they sat on n lounge
In tlio hall of the house of representatives
this afternoon. At the end of their consul
tation Mr. Phclps saw Senator Allison , imd
immediately thereafter your correspondent
saw the New Jersey man. "Do you think
Now York will got the secretaryship of the
treasury ! " tasked.
"No , " was tlio decisive answer given
Instantly and without hesitation.
Senator Allison docs not regard his refusal
of the treasury portofnlio as in any degree
brightening the prospects of the cast in
securing that position. He expects it to ire
to the \vcst. Greater interest is shown here
in the make-up of the cabinet just nt this
tlmo than during the period when It was bo-
lloved that Senator Allison was stated , or in
f .vet at any time before ho was offered Iho
treasuryship. Representative Stecle , of In
diana , who is a warm personal friend of Gen
eral Harrison , will louvo for Indianapolis to
morrow to see tlio president-elect. During
the past twenty-four hours hu has talked to
nearly every nrominont republican in both
houses of congress , for the purpose of ascer
taining what is desired in relation to the
secretaryship of Ihe treasury. Every section
of the country , ho says , waives Its personal
desire and the unanimous wish Is that
President Harrison shall select Iho
ablest financier to bo found , without any
respect to recognition of section. The New
Yorkers nnd the New England people say
they do not want to influence General Harri
son one way or the other. They only ask
that the very best man bo selected. So far
us it is known here , Now York Is making no
special effort lo secure Iho trcasuryshiD. It
is taken for granted thai General Harrison
some time ago made up his mind that he
would go west for his treasury timber.
The secretary of the interior has bean
urged by Holmau and other democrats of the
house to consolidate us many laud ofllces as
possible , under Iho law requiring the consoli
dation. of land olllccs , when the area of
vacant lands has fallen below 100,000
acres within n district. The secretary of the
interior , n short time- since , called upon Iho
commissioner of the general land oflico for
reports ns to the several land ofllcos in Ne
braska , notably the Blooniington ofilco. The
commissioner has made a report to the secre
tary in response to such call , that the vacant
lands in the limits of the Bloomington dis
trict uro reduced to a little more than three
thousand acres. Thereupon the secretary in
dicated his intention to consolidate that olllce
with the olllco at , Lincoln. Senator Paddock
has Just had an interview with the secretary
upon the subject. He insisted thai the the
ory under which the amount of vacant lands
in a district shall bo determined , namely ,
that any tract filed upon shall bo treated as
segregated , and no longer vacant land , shall
bo changed in respect to ttio lands
disposed of under Iho present svs-
tem , This rule was established for
cash entries when largo bodies of land wore
sold for cash a public sale to a slnglo indi
vidual , and Is not the proper theory for the
present time when lands are almost entirely
disposed of under the homestead , iiru-omp-
tion nnd timber culture acts. Under those
nets the filing upon a tract for settlement is
a very small part of the business that the
locator has with the land ofHco. The princi
pal business that the settler may have with
the local land oftlco is required to bo done
after the mere act of illing has been per
formed. Mr. Paddock insisted that only
those lands should bo considered In bo va
cant lands wlicro the transfer has been made
by final certificate nr patent to the location.
Under this rule it is doubtful If thu Bloom
ington olllce could properly be consolidated
under tlio law requiring consolidations. The
secretary indicated that ho would consider
that view , and agreed with Mr. Paddook
thai there wus much force In It. However ,
It upon investigation it shall be found
that even under this rule there
may not remain 100,000 acres
of vacant land , the oflico will undoubtedly
bo ordered to bo consolidated with the Lin
coln oftlco. Mr. Paddock thin Its no other
land in Nebraska is In present danger of
being closed ,

made that Lee and Miss White were engaged
to bo married on February M. Leo's cousin ,
Charles , got wind of the matter and at once
presented himself buforr1 Miss White for an
explanation. The you HIT lady relented at
his pleadings , and agreed to elope with him
and be married at once , thus effectually put
ting n stop to the other Whin's preparations
for the wedding on St. Valentino's day.
When Charles and Miss White wore perfect
ing arrangements , Lee dropped in. The low
ers growled at each oilier a bit , but Dually
agreed to stand ui > and lot the young lady
take her choice. She finally picked Lee ,
and Charles started of ! swearing. She ro-
Icutcd again and called him back. This
thlnir continued for some time , when Leo
bundled the ooject of bis affections into u
buggy. They caught tlio train for Columbia ,
where they had to go for a license. Charles
Whin hired a conveyance and started over
land to beat them to the county seat to talk
the girl into having him , but arrived too late ,
as the ceremony had already been performed.

Miss White is an accomplished young lady.

the best families of the Blue irrass section.
She came to Louisville and all arrangements
had been in ado for her quiet marriage to Mc
Carthy. The night before the wedding ,
tiowover , she left the Gait house in n eur-
raiago and took a sleeper for St.Louis. When
McCarthy came to claim his bride ho found
only a note in which she bade him good-byo
forever. The singular conduct of the lady
seems to have been duo to personal fear. It
is said that another young man of Sholby-
villo had also been a passionate suitor , and
when she rejected nlm he swore in a cold
blooded fashion that If she over married
McCarthy ho would kill her. The afternoon
preceding the wedding day she received a
note from him , it is said , to the same effect ,
and fear of tragic consequences led her to
desert McCarthy and fly to St. Louis.

and Baker of isow York were appointed as
The commlttco on agriculture reported the
agricultural appropriation bill , and it win
placed upon the calendar.
The house then went into couimiUco of tlu
whole on the naval appropriation bill.
Mr. Herbert , during his explanation of the
provisions of the bill , was especially eulo
gistic of the dynamite cruiser Vesuvius , nnd
stated that enough had been shown to demon
strate that dynamite guns wore to bo very
efllciont weapons , especially on land.
Whether tht\v would bo equally cfllolont on
the sea was not yet assured ,
Mr. McAdoo of New Jersey said that the
recent troubles in Samoa had made thu
country painfully aware of the needs of the
naval service. Four hundred million dollars
had boon wasted in wooden ships and
smnotii bore guns. It had boon made hu-
millatingly aware of its inferiority as a naval
power to the least of the naval
powers of Kiirope. The rights of American
citizens had ueen disregarded by a foreign
nation. So far as the Sainonn question was
I'ourerned the llrst tlilnir which congress
should do was to ascertain all the facts , If
American citizens had been outraged ; if
American property had been injured ; if any
American right had been infringed , then it
was the duty of thH government , in tlio
nnmo of our people and strength , resolutely
and calmly , but stubbornly , to assort that
right and rosurivet the privileges taken
from us , even If wo do at the cannon's
Ho regretted that Prlnro Bismarck had
sunn tit to follow thu nnfuriniiR colonizing
policy of other Kuropciin nations ; that was ,
encouraging strife among the pcoplu of a
country they desired to acquire and then ,
under cover of protecting their own inter
ests , step in and steal the land which God
had given to the people of the country. Bis
marck seumed to have made up his mind
it would bo to the advantage of liermiiny to
taku thcso islands. But thu United States
had treaty rights nnd interests in Samoa ,
ami when the German war ships opened lire
it was the duty of the American government
to have protected the honor and dignity of
the United State * with all the power of our
people. Ho bullnvod that Bismarck had very
Wisely retrciitpd from his posltiun.
McAdoo said that there would bo no war
unless wo lay down and let Bismarck walk
over us. A remedy fur these insults would
bo found in a strong navy. Wo could not
permit the growth of monarchial institutions
in South America. Wo could not par-mil the
wholesale and unjustifiable acquisition of
foreign power in that country.
Mr. Boutollo referred to the recent trial of
the Vesuvius , und , while honing that she
might bo as successful as slut was claimed to
bo ho drew what ho termed -
, u striking- con
trast hot ween the treatment aecordod two
vessels of different political paternity -tho
Dolphin and Vesuvius. The Dolphin has been
tried fully equipped for sea and battle. The
Vesuvius has been tried not only short 100
tons of coal , but without any weight on board
to represent what she would bis required to
carry when lit for service. It had been
stated to him that the machinery for tha
vessel was too light. He had been tnld that
on tlio llrst preliminary trial the Vesuvius
had broken n valve ; that on her second pro <
limimiry trial she hail hrokon her main vulva
gear ; that on her ofllciul trial she had completely -
pletely broken one of her flro room
blowers , and on her second oftlciul
trial she had broken her air pump
gear. It was strange that no comment had
been made on defects such ns theso. The ox-
Dlanation was clear. It was found In the
fact that the republican papers and ropub-
licuus genurully had not been desirous of
using the hypocritical methods which had
boon employed by the democrats to break
down the reputation ot ami find fault with
vessels built under a republican administra
tion In the ship yard of John Hoach. Ha
had been informed that on her first trial the
Vesuvius had been lusted over a four mile
course and failed. He had never heard the
ofllcial report on this cusa. Ho hud boon told
that on her second trial iho course had boon
cut down to two miles , and she au'iiin
failed. By request of tlio contractors
tlio lost trial was made in deep water ,
and a trial of speed made in deep water gen
erally mount a trial far away from shore ,
and a trial speed mudo fur away from nhoro
might iiobsibly furnish more latitude for nn
estimate of tlio progress of u vchsol than
could bo furnished If she wore running along
a canal. Ho had linen Informed that tiia
speed test applied to the Vesuvius had not
exceeded twelve minutes. The test for thu
Roach ship had been a six-hour trial. Whila
on trial tlio Dolphin was made the special
subject of criticism , that water had to bo
put on some of lior journals because thny
were lieatud. Ho had been In formed by an
eye witness that wlioi the Vesuvius lluislicd
her trial trip , as his Informant expressed it ,
she took a Turkish bath.
An amendment was adopted appropriating
