Much sympathy Is expressed for the mur
derer's mother , who is n most estimable

undue pride in his son's career ns a pupi-
Publlc sentiment strongly against the
prisoner , on nccountof hi * inclination to bo
always on the war path. Ho has drawn a
pun on InoffcnnUo parties

do his work , notwithstanding Ills ability to
use his fists to peed advantage.

Those who formed the acquaintance of
Brooks In thla city , and especially In sport

relsome person generally , but ono possessing
low personal traits to commend him. His
Omaha acquaintances are of the opinion that

committee on militia , defended the original

states , ana nuulo the statement that it was

Hull asked Colcman if the Georgia militia

Cady thought that If the bill was cut

Caldwell said there is a strong sentiment
In the stuto against a largo npuropri.ition for
the suppoit of the inllitTn , and also u senti
ment In favor of keeping up some Rcmblanca
of a military organisation. Ha thought the
monthly drill might be dispensed uith , but
the annual reunion should bo kept up.
Christv , of Clay , was not in favor of
spending the people's money needlessly , but
thought tlio amendment of his colleague ,
Mr , Hoitlfl , to maku the appropriation SW- ,
000 , should prevail.
Corbln thought the state was now on a
DCACC footing , and did not need any standing
army pensioned on the tax payers.
Speaker Wntson defended the militia. Ho
said that u well trained militia was the safe
guard of the state ; that m every c.iso of pub
lic disorder the people instinctively turned to
the militia for protection against mob vie
lence. Nebraska , he continued , can afford
to keep abreast of her sister states in this
matter. Ho referred to the Pittsbutg riots
in lbS as nn instance where the militia were
found almost Indispensable.
White asked if it was not true that the
milltii had to be locked up in the round
house until released by the national tioops.
Watson thought this might ha\o been the
case , but the Ncbiaska uidltia are made of
better metal. In closing , ho denounced the
scheme to do away with the militia as a dem
ocratic co , championed by such rcfoimers
ns J. Sterling Morton and Van Wyck of
Otoe , and about the only argument the dem
ocrats hud durltifttho campaign.

the statel The taxpayers , groaning under
heavy mortgages , nio watching the actions
of this body with a lively interest. 'Jhe
question is , shall wo continue the cxtrax a-
ganco inaugurated two icais ago , or shall
we make an effort to relieve the people from
the burdens of taxation.
Bilker made a strong plea in favor of the
appropriation , an a in the course of his rd-
marks referred to Majors' congressional
record , and declared that no man could nose
as an innocent man who had at temped to se
cure a scat m congress thiough fraud , oar-
jury and forgery. He also referred to Ma
jors in no complimentary terms , ns the head
of the so-called Ri anger combination.
Several members endeavored to interrupt
the speaker , but Majors asked that Haker bo
allowed to finish bis tiiadc. When ho sat
down Majors'nroso in an agitated manner
and rend a rule of the house forbid
ding members from calling each
other by name and from impugning
their motives. Ho asked no protection for
himself from the house , either physically or
otherwise. "Tho gentleman from Jeffei son
warned uic , " continued Majors , " \\hen the
bill toupDropilato * , ' 0.000 to send him on a
junketing trip to Washington went down to
its death , that he had it in for me , nnd now
the attack has come. U Is not an attack on
me , but on that huge class ( farmers ) of mem
bers with whom I presume to act.
An exciting colloquy then followed.
Uaker vehemently denied that ho had
threatened Majors und stated that "tho as
sertion of the gentleman is absolutely false. "
Majors advanced toward him , and shouted :
"You did , Mr. Bakor. You told mo right
there ( indicating a position near Baker's
scat ) that you hud it in for me. "
Tlio chairman rapped for oruor , nnd Baker
still attempted to speak.
Finally Fioldgrovo's \olcc was heard , nnd
the gentleman from Buffalo being rccocni/ed
by the chair , said : "I now arise for informa
tion. [ Applause. ] Dowoslthcio to listen
to two members quarrel ! I move they bo
excused for a few minutes until they can go
out and sottlo'"thrt [ little matter by them
selves. " [ Greilt laughter. I
This sally brought down the houso. and

t cached. All amendments were lost , and

amount canted by a vote of 41 to 40.

moved that the bill be referred back to the

Cady said this only meant further delay ,
and charged Olmstead with inserting to

the whole matter had been thoroughly can

Olmstead mose , advanced two seats to
