that the nbovo mimed number ba discharged.
'Among the number to bo discharged wcro
seven engrossing clerics , all to bo selected by
lot from the Lancaster county contingent.
Majors moved Hint the report of the com
mittee ho adopted , and after several fili
bustering motions had been voted down , the
report was adopted.
Majors ashed if the adoption of the report
discharged the employes. The speaker said
It would not.
Trucsdcll then moved that the committee

Hull moved that linker and Majors bo ap
pointed to discharge the suporsurvlceablo
Uakcr declined In n sarcastic speech , In
which It could plainly bo seen that ho was
talking against time.
Olmstcad raised point after point of order ,
and then moved to Instruct the committee to
discharge all relatives of members.
The inicfition was dually reached ou the
Trucsdell motion as amended , when Culcl
well , Hall , McUrido and Soveriu , from Lan
caster , demanded n call of the house.
A largo number of members wcro lound to
be absunt mid they wcro bent for. The house
now degenerated Into a good nnturcd mob ,
No semblance of order was maintained , and
both parties became defiant. Motion after

The Douglas county delegation went off by
themselves in a corner , aud Gnldwell called
the attention of the chair to

At length the blockade was broken and
Fielugrovo was observed eating pie , whlcli

Pics , cake and sandwiches soon became
plentiful , and each motion to adjourn was
voted down with a thundering cheer.
Olmstcad discovered that the pending mat

met , and could not bo avoided. The motion
was lost , and the fun continued.
The speaker announced that all the mem
bers wuro present except Mr. Hnyner , and at
3:15 : Mr. Caldwall moved that further pro

which carried.
Towio now moved that the wliolo matter

Hampton and Hanna voted ' "no" because
they were members of the committee on
whom the disagreeable duty of discharging
the employes would devolve. And thus the
long light ended by the triumph of the cle

LINCOLN , Nob. , March I. [ Special to THE
Bni : . ] The report of the committee to whom
was referred the matter of determining the
number of employes necessary for the proper
transaction of business In the house , after
enumerating the employes In each depart
ment , concludes as follows :
. "Yotir committee , from Investigation of
the subject , have arrived at tlio conclusion
that the force of employes can bo safely re
duced at least forty in number , which would
still leave 144 on-thu pay roll of the house ,
nnd from the fact that forty-night of those
employes nppoar to bo from Lancaster
county , wo recommend that the discharged
employes bo made principally from Lancas
ter iwunty.
"Your committee do further recommend
that the following reductions in ofllccs aud
positions bo nmdo :
"Clerks of committees , 11 ; engrossing
clerks , 7 ; Janitors , 0 ; custodians , 7 ; bill

"Your committee has refrained from mak
ing anv further Npucillu dimnUsals until re-
clelvng further orders from the house , for
the reasons above assigned.
"In examining the nay roll of the house for
the session of l ST wtl find that during the

January 4 , and ending March SI , Home com.
mittco dorks received p.iy for u high ni 150

LINCOLN , Nob. , March I. | 8 | > cciit to TUB
BEU.--Tho ] senate has nut on IU little Hit
the bill of Senator Paulson to legalize u deed
that has gone unquestioned ten years and Is
properly made and recorded , except for thu
absence of the attesting witness or the seal
of the ncknowlodglny pfllccr , Two similar
bllli Irnvo already been , smothered in the
house , nnd a third' has mofan untimely fatu
in tile senate. Like measures have been be
fore former legislatures , but BO far none of
them tiavo otkcunod their onumios :
This propoxiUca U the oaturowtu of the
noted Oaslin-O'Brlcn ' suit , which lias had
various up * anil downs In the courts. It In
volves the title to sixty-two acres of land be
tween Hanscom park in Omaha and , the
county poor farm , said to bo worth over
? . " 00,000. The defendant In the caio Is
George M. O'Brien , Jr. , now a member of
the house , who succeeded in killing the bill
two yoara ago. Judge Gnslln , now of the
Kouthwostern part of the ntato , has n claim
to a port of the land , but It Is imperfect. It ,
rests on n dceil made many years ago in
Ohio that lacko the signatures of witnesses
and the ( teal of n notary before whom the
paper was acknowledged.
The Pauls en bill , while general In Its ap
plication , is Intended to fit thlt particular
case. The senate Judiciary committee rec
ommended its Indctlnlte postponement , but ,
out bf fraternal eourto.iy , It was put oil the
general file at Senator Paulson's request.
Uoprcscnttitlvo O'Brien has his knlfo un-
Hhcathed , and the bill has a dangerous rend
to travel.
LINCOLN , Nob. , March 1. [ Special to Titn
Bnu.l The senate , In committee of the
whole , has approved the Jowett alien land
bill. It prohibits non-resident aliens and cor
porations not Incorporated in Nebraska from
acquiring or holding real estate In this state ,
but , as amended , exempts property in cities
.tnd towns. The bill nllows non-resident
aliens now owning land to inalto a bonn lido
ttiilc during their life. The important modi
fication of thoexlstlng law is contained in the
following section :
"This act shall not , nor shall anything in
the statutes of Nebraska prevent the hold
ers , whether non-resident aliens or corpora1
lions not organized under the laws of th
state of Nebraska , nf liens upon real cstat
or any Interest therein , whether borotofon
or hereafter acquired , from holding or takln
n valid title to the real estate subject to sue
liens , nor shall it prevent any such alien o
corporation from enforcing any lion or Judg'
ment for any debt or liability now existing
or which may hereafter bo created , nor frorr
becoming a purchaser at any sale made foi
the purpose of collcctingoreuforcinKthocol
lection of such debt or judgment. Provided
however , that all lands so acquired shall be
sold within ten years after the title thereto
shall be perfected In such non resident alter
or foroliru corporation , and in default of sucl
solo williin such time , such real estate slial
revert and escheat to the state of Nebraska
as provided in this act. "
A lively debate followed on Taggart's bill
prohibiting any county , precinct , township or
city from voting bonds in aid of the construe
tion of railroads.
Senator Church IIowo argued tha
without the voting of such aid many rail
road extensions would not bo made. Ho
cited the case of Hastings.
Senator Norval said that was ascare-crovvv
and cited the case of the Atchison , Topeka &
Santa Fo in Kansas , which raised the same
cry , but did build through some counties
without aid.
Scuutor Hansom argued that n railroad
would not build to any town , no matter how
largo the bonus , .unless the traflic of thai
town promised to prove prolitablo. Ho bo
liovcd that railroads would make extensions
regardless of bonuses , and asserted that such
bonds never reach the railroad companies.
They go into the pockets of construction com
panies , officers and other schemers who form
n ring within n ring. Otoo county is bonded
for three generations ; men ore paying bonds
for railroads that do not come within ton
miles of their homes , and the legisla
ture should save the western coun
ties from such a fate. Ho denied
the right of one-half of the people
to mortgage the property of the other half ,
and ho cited an Instance in his county in
which 402 men voted $100,000 of bonds.
Senator Howe said ho had long wondered
how Uiinsom happened to got into the sen
ate , but he now understood. The gentleman
from Otoe had explained that his people did
not know what they wore voting on. What
was the condition of Nebraska City , with
one roadi It slumbered for twenty-live
years , and half the business places on its
main street were tenanted by rats. When
the Missouri P.iciiio came and gave com
petitive rates the city revived , and has boon
prosperous ever since. To-day the gentle
man from NebrasKa City says to the coun
ties of western Nebraska , Stand still go to
Senator Lindsay explained how railroads
sent out sharp politicians to corrupt voters
and work up a sentiment for voting bonds.
Ho quoted the statement of a man con
nected with the Uoclc Island to the
effect that railroads seldom realized
20 per cent on the Jbonds voted in their aid.
Tne remainder was used in carrying the
election or stuck to the lingers through
which it passed.
Senator Howe said ho represented n rail
road and everybody understood that , but ho
worn no collar and was earnestly for the
people. The railroads grab at everything in
sight , but they are no exception to the gen
eral rule. .Wo know that railroads have
wheels within wheels , nnd tbo day is coining
when stockholders will demand accounting
from their construction companies. Judge
Grcsham has Just established a precedent
that , will boar print. A land company had
been pocketing bonuses given for establish
ing town sites , and the court held that such
bonuses must bo turned over to the treasury
of the railroad company. This bill is a
scheme of the B. &M. to prevent other rail
roads from entering their field. When Adams
county voted bond tos the Missouri Pacific ,
who was back of the move to prevent the
issue of the bonds ? Why , the B. & M. The
same tiling was done at Crete and other
Senator Hansom asked how much influence
Howe expected to wield as the mouthpiece
of the Missouri Pacific. The gentleman from
Ncmaha raises his hand and says ho is rep
resenting u railroad here the same hand
that took § 125,000 from Adams county , not
one cent of which over reached the coffers of
the railroad. Take ttio case of Brownvlllo ,
the only town in Ncmaha of any cense
quence. Years ago It voted a lot of bonds ,
nnd as soon ns the money was realized the
rails were taken up. The railroad bank
rupted that town , nnd the people are still
paying those bowls. When the Missouri Pa
cific built north from Atchison , Jay Gould
piomliicd to go to Nebraska City , but bis
subordinates tnaclo a corrupt bargain with
Dunbar and diverted the road. Afterwards ,
to got the road , the citizens of Nebraska City
gave iiVi.OOO out of their private pockets and
voted 10,000 of bonds , every cent of which
went to the olllccrs nianlnulntlngtho scheme.
Senator Tagirart made a gallant light for
his bill , which provoked the sharpest contest
of the session. HoTorrlng to the bonds
voted by his cnunty.Adams ( ) to the Missouri
Pacific , ho said a largo part of the county
was almost unanimous against the proposi
tion. The road would not materially benefit
them , and the bill was intended to prevent
such injustice.
Senator Nesbitt argued nt length that the
bill would dlscourago railroad building In
western Nobniblm and was unfair to that
section ,
The committee recommended the indefinite )
postponement of the bill , and when the re
port of the committee came before thn scnato
the friends of the bill made a desperate light
to save It. Several of their motions worn de
feated by a vote of IS to 15 , nml the bill was
finally killed after the morning session had
extended until half-past I o'clock.
The llnal vote for indefinitely postponing
the bill was as follows :

WorkliiRinon nml Women Meet In
Tlirlt Own Iiitcints. .
Friends of the Knights of Labor mot In the
Grand Army hull hist night , to talk on tha
labor question. They were all workingmen
and were not talking anarchistic or social
istic sentiments , but plain every day facts
that would benollt themselves nnd their fam
ilies. The front row of seats was reserved
for the ladies interested iu the order , and
they were all filled. The chair was taken by
Darcy B. Howell , who in u few words Intro
duced Louis Ihn. Ho spoke of tbo events
that the French revolution , nnd drew
from them practical lessons for to-day. Then
Mr.Lynch too the lloornndspokoof tno work
being done by the Knights of Labor. They
not only looked after iho interests of the
skilled mechanics , but of those whoso misfor
tune it was never to learn a , tr.ide , but
who were workingmen all the same
and earned their living by the
sweat of their brow. It was not
so much the capitalists the order had to con
tend with , as disscn lions among the ranks of-
the workingmen themselves. He advised
those present , to listen to the voice of friends ,
rather than enemies , nnd to stand united as
workiugmen. To accomplish anything they
must use what political influence they had
and work at the primaries as well ns at the
polls. The workingmen of America had tlio
controlling Influence in the land , and If they
would but stand together that influence
would be felt itifaiiimprovcd condition of af
fairs among workinguien. If a worldngman
ran for ollico stand by him , irrespective of
party. -r
Mrs. Fitch coincided with the remarks
made. They should bo true to each other
If they wished " , jto gain anything. Be
fore asking" | afor shorter hours ,
they should .Cjdbcato the worfdneninn
to use of the haurksavcd , so that they would
not spend them in the barooms that cat up
so large a | w > rtiou 9 ? their wages. She was
glad that workingiiien were beginning to see
that strikes as n vulo were failures , for in
many cases the effects nf n strike wore felt
most keenly by (1 the women and children at
home. She askedthat , the women's unions
should not bo forgotten , and cited the New
York sewing girls , who were grinding out
their lives making fjhirts at DOe per dozen.
She advised tljose present to bring their
wives , sisters and ( Jpughters into the assem
blies that they tji'euisolves advocated.
Mr. McGreifOf. though. not n Knight , of
Labor , but a labplf jujion man , Indorsed tlio
remarks , and wanted' to see all classes of
workingmen pulling together. Ho thought
they should lay aside party and work for

A sparring contest was booked for the
"aftorplcco" at the People's ' theater last
night. It was to have bcmi participated in
by two wall known pugilists , ono of whom is
quite a rcputnblo young mmi with u family
In this city. The contest did not take placo.
The policeor rather Duff Green , put a stop
to it before the pugilists had tlmo to go upon
the stage , or oven color the theater. The
management of the house , it Is said , pro
tested that It was not n prize light , or any
thing else but a "turn" In the performance ,
the same ns any other uct. Ho put it on to
draw a houso. The pugilists , when it was
learned that they could not "contest , " were
coing upon the stage to make an apology to
tlio audience nnd explain why they could not
light , when they were tolil that they would
bo run In as vugs if they made any kind of
nn appearance. They madu their escape ,
through , the rear end of the theater. John
Sollon , of the theittor , is very Indignant ,
claiming that ho pays a llconso to run a va
riety show , and no long as ho does not con
duct an Indecent or n disorderly house ho
thinks ho should bo allowed to say what
kind of acts should go on his stage.
The dual attraction of Katie Putnam and
Hilly Emerson drew u largo uudlonco at the
Grand opera house lust night. Both uro well
known here , although Miss Putnam has not ?
made her appearance frequently enough to
sustain the reputation which she formerly
achieved in this city.
Nearly all of the lady's characters are of
the mad-cap order , and in them she displays
nn ubandon which savors rather ot nnturo
than of art ,
In the lighter scone's her playfulness lias
the apontnnlety of youth , nnd Is always
worthy of npprcdliAion. Her success last

To the Members : Excepting n loss , which
was fully made known Immediately un dis
covery , the year IbSS has been ono of grcnt
prosperity. In every direction the company
experiences n steady Increase of slzo mid
strength , with n decreasing ratio of ex
penses ; so that , while It becomes thereby in
creasingly attractive to new Insurers , It Is
also increasingly valuable to Its older mem
bers , Us new business bolntr secured on such
terms ns to make It an advantage and not nn
expense to them.

The ( Icuth losses for iho year were some
what above our uvorugo experience , but were
so far Inside the mortality to bo expected by
the table and provided for by our nromiums
as to leave u suvlng of about f ISO.OOU. For
two yours thu death rnto has been nbovo our
average. But even nt Its highest it bus bean
fur below the mortality table , proving at once
the careful selection of our business and thu
abundant safety of the table on which our
operations nro bused.
Our losses have been paid with equal re
gard to the prompt satisfaction of every just
claim nnd to the protection of the honest
members against every unjust clnlui.
Wo still follow the principle that when n
comp.iny has reached any considerable size ,
not only is it bettor for both old and now
members that now business should bo taken
only at such n prlco as does not reduce the
dividends on the old. but that theroshould bo
n general tendency to a reduction In the PX-
ponso ratio to offset the sknvly increasing
difficulty of earning largo dividends.
Whatever is got iu violation of this
principle is a. source of ultimata
weakness nnd not of strength , whatever
its magnitude. It Is u great satisfaction to
the management that the company has been
able to Increase its uuslnoss nta reduced rate
of expense. Its now business is , therefore ,
peculiarly valuable. Tlio expense ratio for
1838 was only S.'JiJ per cont. a ratio less than
that of any other company.
The Income from investments during the
year , while yielding a good margin for sur
plus , Indicates the dilllculty of llndmg quito
as ready and satisfactory employment for
money as in the previous year.

In 1SS3 wo sold for $775,7 < i2.44 real estate

This brings real estate sales to January I ,

property which cost us S,330,4oS.87 ( , , a net
profit of 53530" ! , : .
Of the twenty-eight parcels sold during
the year twenty-six sold at a , profit of SSS-
17.Y20 , und two sold at a loss of Si.OS3.Oo
balance , SSG,0'J2.15. ,
On bonds oold and paid at maturity during
the year there was a net profit of $15,073 ;
on sundry items there was a loss of $ J,21li 74 ,
giving u total ineomo from profit and loss \
terns of $123,020.41.
For the first tlmo in its history of forty- C
hrooyear.s the company has to record u loss t
by the default of one of its linancial correspondents - '
respondents , u class of men through whom 1
most of its loans are placed according to the
general business custom of such invest
ments , and who nro selected with exceptional
carofortho character and ability requisite for
the most impoitant and conlldential relations
which they hold ; men who , ovccpt in this in
stance , bavo served this company with rare
fidelity and success in uU these years , to
whoso wisdom nnd faithful service much
of thd success of this company has been duo.
The amount chargeable from prollt and
loss to this cause proves to be $133.445.01 ; deducting -
ducting the income from prollt and loss
above stated , the balance charged to profit
and loss is $ ] 51,5'.37.UO. , No credit is taken
for the value of property restored to us , nor
will there bo until it is realized by salt1.
During the tlmo this money was being ab
stracted this correspondent handled correctly
over $17,000,000 , and possessed not rnlyour ,
own conlidonco but that of the business men
of ' his own city nnd stnto in u ' . " " / marked ;
degree. ' Ills litness wtis unqualifiedly in
dorsed by the mostcompotint uisn who know )
him intimately.
To rightly appreciate the effect of this loss
upon tlio standing of the company and the
safety of its contracts it should bo considered
in its proportions and not simply in its ngirro-
guto. That is small to one concern winch Is
largo to another. A bank with $1,0011,00. ) of
resources , of which $100,000 was surplus ,
could meet n loss of $10,000 without thought
of injury to its credit. iJut less tlmn wiiat
S10.0JO is to such a bank , < 1S4OOJ is to n com
pany with ? r > 7,500,000 , of resources , and with
? r,5i5OUO ! surplus remaining after the loss. .
It will not affect the company's dividend ,
The conditions which , apart from our en
tire conlldcnco in the mun , made this loss
and its concealment possible , wcro peculiar
to the times in IndlunuDolls following the
financial depression of the lust decade , and
tbo methods bv which it was effected were
skillfully framed out of those conditions. No
such condition exists elsewhere , nor has
since that pcrioil , it Is probably needless to
say that whatever lessons as to the methods
thuru are In this matter will bo properly ap
plied. .

were then abandoned and a hand-to-
hfiiid tussle followed with brlors. sup-
liiijrs and u dense undergrowth of
Hetweoii this hill and tlio ciibln is
a deoi ) cave , forty feet down straight on
all sides , where ono of the most extraor
dinary nnd heinous crimes over eoin-
mittod in the territory took place in
April , 183 , while Hello was on a trip to
Texas. On this spot Martin Joseph ,
alias "Bully Josoy , " a Cluckusaw
Indian-negro with a , villainous reputa
tion , ably sustained by every align
ment of his body , assaulted and mur
dered a white woman named Sluphons.
Some days before the murder Josoy
induced the woman's husband to | * o
into the brush with htm. Hardly
had they plunged into the
dense thicket when Josoy
murdered Stephens in cold blood , leav
ing his body uncarod for on the ground.
The llend incarnate then returned to
Stephiuis' house and told Mrs. Steph
ens her husband was sick iu tlio moun
tain and wanted her assistance. Tlio
good woman suspected no wrong , put
her baby to sleep , took some simple
household remedies in her hands and
accompanied tlio si'oundrol to this se
cluded spot , where ho murdorud her
and threw the poor woman's dead body
Into this cavo.
The baby starved to death in its
cradle and was found by some Texas
travelers nearly a month later. In a
year or so Hello returned from Texas ,
and , learning of tlio ghastly murder ,
she organized a scarehing party to look
for the remains and fasten the guilt
where it belonged. Stephens body
was found first , and finally the searching
party , headed by Hello herself , tame to
the cave. A rough windlass was con
structed and a man lowered into a snot
where no human eye had over pene
trated , Suddenly those above him
heard him shout us if in great
terror _ , beseeching thorn to haul
him up auiekly , and once on terra
lirma the poor fellow was speech
less with fright. Ho finally managed
to tell thorn the cave was filled , bottom
and sides , with rattlesnakes ; that ho
had been on the very edge of n nest of
thousands of them ; that they had rattled
tled and hissed in his vory'ears , and
that all the rewards in Christendom
would never induce him to enter the I
place again. Naturally enough , his
companions shuddered at this descrip
tion , and not a man among them would
have gone into the cave if his lifo de
pended on it.
Belle was the first to act.
She fastened the rope around hoi-
waist nnJ in reply to the astonished
look of the party this intrepid woman
announced her determination to enter
the cave und" find the body if it was '
Lhcro. She took two loaded pistols and
torch , with which she proposed to
frighten the snakes into their holes , HI
riien she slipped over the edge of the en
bank and disappeared , waving her orMl
lorch and firing1 the pistols in every Ml :
lirection , frightening her unwelcome
liosts into their cracks and crevices.
She afterwards said the place liter ,
illy swarmed with snakes , big and llttle-
md she admitted having been frigh- an
oncd , but her nrldo at having outdone nu ;
ho men spurred her to the very bottom , Cetin
vliero Mrs. Stevons's skeleton lay tin nn
lackencd with snakes. Having Kin
rlKhlencd them olT she picked up an tin
trmful of bones all that was left of Us nil
losey's victim and groped her way to
ho 'surface. With these bones and
ithor evidence of .Tosoy's gujlt , Belle
vent lo Fort Smith , procured a writ fdV
lis arrest and led the deputy marshals
o the murderer's dug out , where ho
iras arrested. Ho was hanged at Fort
Smith July , 1881.
Belle boasted that this was the first
.ml last time she over aided in bring-
ng an olTonder to justice , but the hide- v
us atrocity of the crime , added to the rm :
act that it occurred pear her homo and Lo'
omo suspiuion was attached to Hello H.
orsolf , led her to lay aside her hatred H.I'll
