A Novel and Exceptional Situation in
the Upper Branch or the State
Legislature Statn
lloasc GoBsip-
Tbe Senate.
LIKCOLJC , Neb , , March 23. [ Special to THE
BiiB.j The senate has been in session one
day longer than the hovsc , and has improved
the opportunity to take A rest. Bnt that is
not the only reason for the adjournment over
Saturday. The senate -actually run out
of xvork , and it knocked off until the house
shall have sent over another grist to grind in
the shape of the two general appropriation
hills. And there is another reason. Several
of the jobbers In the house have threatened
a deadlock on the appropriations if their de
mands bc.not granted , and the absent sen
ators arc at homo arranging their affairs to
stay hero two week , if necessary , to defeat
the unholy alliance in jobs. Hut the threat
is not likely to bo effective. The heroic
stand of the senate has encouraged ttio
friends 01 economy in the house , and quite a
number of representatives will bo glad of
the chance to concur In the reductions and
straighten their records.
The situation In the senate is exceptional
and novel , it has only a dozen bills on gen
eral file. They are mostly remnants wnoso
doom nasoeen decreed , and their friends
have not the heart to crowd them on to their
tragical fate. One is Cady's bill for a state
inspection of the accounts of county treas
urers. It was up in oominittco of the whole
once and was about to bo exiled into indefi
nite iwstpouement , but Senator Ncsbitt. plead
forrccrcyond out of senatorial courtesy a
stay of execution was panted. Linn's bill to
fix bleeping car fares at X cent JHT mile is
similar to one or two otncrs that have been
strangled , and it would bo a waste of time in
disturb its slumber. A house bill making it
unlawful for coal or lumber dealers to com
bine to regulate prices is covered by the
Kecldey antl trust bill , and the senate is not
ditposed to legislate for one or two lines of
trade. These are samples of the measure
whose f ate is decreed. There ure two bills
introduced by Kcprcsenbuive Berlin of
Omaha left on the books , because no one has
taken enough interest in tbe.ii to call them
up. Ono is a slight amendment in the law
intruded to rnquire the comptroller of Omaha
to co through the books of the treasurer of
the school district atJeast once a month and
wake a rcjiort to the city council. The pres-
cnt luxv provides for only one report aycar ,
unless the council call * for more , and it
-sever does. "Our Diet's" bill to protect , the
railroad men of Omaho , Plattsmoulh and
Nebraska City from the gamUhee sharks of
Iowa is also on the books waiting fur some
friendly hand to take it down.
The senate is ready to quit and go home ,
nnd , exclusive of the appropriations , can
clean up its work in a day's time for final ad
jourutiicntOnu reason tor adjournment
to give the committees time to rummage
their pigeon hole * for a few bills to keep the
eeuatc decently employed until the general
appropriations are reached , which will not be
before Wednesday. The two bills contain
twenty-two pages , with over four hundred
items. Tha house amendments fill ten solid
typs-writUu paces , and will not bo printnd
until Monday. The bills are being engrossed ,
vrith all the changes mudo by the amend
ments , and the figures will have to be coin-
tiarod with great care. The house clerks
bnpe tfl have the bills ready to deliver to the
Mnata Monday afternoon , which will maice
it impossible to reach a third reading before
Wednesday , „
If the printed amendments are ready Mon-
toy , the senators who hare combined for ro-
Irecchaicnt will hold a conference in the
evening to KJ over the bills Informally aud
Mrteontbu necessary pi unlng. Instead of
referring them to the committee on finance
bills will probably be ordered to a third
reading , which willjbriog them up for dis
cussion Wednesday morning. The house
having checked the raid of the deputies and
clerks , the salary bill will be disposed of
in short order. It is believed the appropria
tions for the state departments and the
state institutions will have been digested
in conference so as to cause little
delay on the floor ol the senate. The fight
xvill occur over the miscellaneous items and
the claims of Boss Stout , ex-Governor But
lar ana Thomas Kennard. There has been
an understanding that the senatorial alliance
should not be insisted on when it came to
the consideration of claims , and they are ex
pected to cause a scattering among the law
yers. Senators Keckley and Sutherland
have been the moving spirits in the concerted
astion for economy. The strong support of
Senators Church Howe and Hansom came
unasked and unexpected. It was gratefully
received , but Is an unknown quantity as to
the claims.
The date of adjournment is uncertain. l\
is not known how long a discussion the
claims will provoke in the senate , and it now
seems probable that the appropriations will
lead to the only conference committee nf tne
session. An effort will be made to adjourn
before next Saturday evening , but the sena
tors will prepare to stay longer. Some of
them have announced a determination to in
sist on adjournment in daylight to prevent
the rowdyism and debauchery that marked
tbo close of the last legislature.

was adopted , directing the commissioner of
labor to embody in his forthcoming report a
chapter on tbo culture of cane , beets and

Bee. ] The farmers in the house are getting
restless and want to go home and look after
their crops.
An attempt is being made in the bouse to
form a combine to refuse to concur in the
senate amendments cutting dcwn the ap
propriations in the hopes that a deadlock
will be produced and the senate forced to
recede. Such a scheme will surely fall , as
the "plunder combine" has been completely
muhed and humbled and Trill not bo able to
male a successful rally.

Mr. Towle , of Knox. in reference to the
Kennard claim said to-day : I did not know
much about this claim , but when Olmstcad
admitted that he and Captain Leo \vcro mem

numbered among the stuuncbest opponents of
extravagance and jobbery.
Stant and Butler are now waylaying the
senators in the hotel lobbies and pouring into
their un.villinp ears the story of their woes.
A strong effort will be made to surreptitiously
insert both of these claims into the general
appropriation bills in the senate in the hopes
that the house will concur in the general
The attempt to raise the salaries of the
deputies and clerks in the state offices was
nota brilliant success. Every item , with
one exception , * was hewn down to the line
fixed by the present law by the solid vote of
the farmer combine. _
A member remarked to-day : "Suppose
this whole legislature -ivas made un of claim
agents , wnat would become of the tax
payers I"
The superintendent of public instruction is
considerably exercised over the cut hi the
appropriation for his office ot nearly $4,000
from two years ago , and is industriously
working to secure an increase. He claims
that he cannot possibly fulfill the duties of
his office with the meager amount for ex
penses allowed-by the bouse.
No effort will be made to clear up the
house calendar. It is hopelessly cumbered
vrith bills , and any motion to take up one
bill is the signal for amendments to include
others from all parts of the house until the
measure is loaded down with them and the
whole goes to the table with a hurrah that
snakes the Cailding.
Sixty-three senate bills are on the general
file in the house and that body will amuse
itself considering them while tbo senate is
disposing of the appropriation bills.
Hilarity is being freely indulged in at the
evening sessions. Waste baskets and spittoons
teens and even bill files fly through the air
on the least provocation.

A prominent local railroad man who has
just returned from Chicago furnishes some
new features in connection with the official
roster of the Union Pacific. He states that
while in Chicago during a conversation vrith
several railway officials of that city , one of
them spoke up and said that he had bat a
few moments before had a consultation with
a Bos ton Ian who said positively that Charles
Francis Adams would be re-elected presi
dent of the Union Pacific at its annual stock
holders-directors meeting. April 24 , With
reference to the unsettled condition of
affairs at Omaha and the friction which is
known to exist among local officials of the
Union Pacific , it was said that tno reelection
tion of Mr. Adams amounted to Thomas L.
Kimball's resignation. Mr. Kimball has
since the advent of Mr. Adams held his high
position in the councils of the Union Pacific ,
it is said , by sheer force of
his superior attainments as a
railroad manager , and against the
prejudices of Adams and his fnends. Tbe
protoG3 of Adams among thb local officials
here have done all they could to make it un
comfortable for Mr. Kimball , and some of
them have gone out of their way to offer him
open affronts. It is said that certain of these
young officials have pone so far as to ask Mr.
Kimball to name persons for coed positions-
in their departments , solely to enable them
to appoint somebody else whom they knew
would be distasteful to Mr. Kimball. It is
said that should the Union Pacific by any
possibility get Into the control of the New
York faction , Kimball would at once be put
into a position which would be something
more than a nominal chief clerkship , and
that bo would make such a scattering in cer
tain circles as would make a score of men
dizzy. This is furnished by an Individual
who claims that the statements are true.
But as regards the resignation of Mr. Kirn-
oall. It hi a matter of no secret that the backbone - ,
bone of the Urilon Pacific U vested In him.
Concern ing the matter another ofilclal said :
"The Union Pacific dare not release Mr.
Kimball. There * are three men connected
wlU- the Union Pacific that if taken nwny
would throw the'Union Pacific into bank
ruptcy. Who are they ! Kimball , Mellen
and Dickinson. AVhat would become of the
Union Pacific if Mellon and Kimball associ
ated themselves with ' a competitive line !
The result would b'e that tbo traffic of the
Union Pacific , would be prostrated. Then
taice Dickinson .away and the Union Pacific
is left without aD.operaiing man. Kcinembw
I am speaking orwbat I know to bo the case.
Mark iny words Adams aonreulates a good
man too well to tand back and allow him to
go to a competitive line. "
T v *
Sherman's M aroti.
Hoyt Sherman , general agent of the Union
Pacific at Salt Lake , has been asked to band
in his resignation , to take effest April 1. No
other cause is assigned than that ha ia an
appointee of the old regime. Mr. Sherman ,
who , by the way. is a capable railroad man ,
intends to enter into the banking business at
Huilcy , Idaho , and is independent from a
financial standpoint , having inherited a large
fortune from a late brother. He is well
known in Omaha , and ib a nephew of Gen-
cral William T. Sherman.
Depotmaster Haney , of the Union Pacific
has met with many peculiar incidents in
his official career. If a passenger wants
anything Haney is the man singled out , and
he must explain everything or the public
will revolt. The other day a passenger of
the gentler sex appeared at tbo depot , lead
ing a little nuggy behind her attached to a
chain. The lady was aware of the company's
rule us regards the oonreyanc ; of canines on
passenger trains , and aporoaching the depot-
master with a coquettish smile inquired if be
could not arrange it so that Mr. Pugcy mi ht
enjoy a trip along side nis fair mistress in
the passenger cnacb. The d. m. informed
her that that was outside his jurisdiction ,
but that ironclad rules demanded a negative
reply. In vain she endeavored to soften the
the heart of the official , but the "no madam"
was all the satisfaction she pot. Finally , as
the train pulled into the depot the
oasscnger entered one of the coaches , but
the canine had disappeared. The conductor
was notified of the matter , and passing
through the coach he observed an abnormal
development of a bosom , and throwing open
the lady's cloak discovered puggy in an in
verted position , resting- ease. Being again
informed that dogs were not entitled to
transportation in a first class coach , she took
the piece of parchment from her purse that
entitled her to transportation to Valley and
tearing it up , left the train in disgust. The
line must be drawn somewhere , and no dis
crimination is made in favor of Mr. Pugg.

There are times when patience ceases to be
a virtue , and in the infinite azure of the past
this has been plainly demonstrated to Chief
Batrgagemastrr Traynor at the Union Pa
cific. Not a oay passes but that some pass
enger in nine cases out of ton a rurallstic
ambassador loses track of some piece of
baggage , and then there is trouble. The
rurallsts are distinct from every other class
of travelers. At the starting point be
checks his baggage because be sees
somebody ciso do it. He receives a
duplicate check , but he seldom known for
what purpose , and when at hb destination ,
if in a largo city , he emerges from the train ,
goes to a hotel , and is dis&ppontc3 ! if his
baggage is not there ahead of him. Being
instructed where to go be goes. He has his
check , but he tails to realize why it was
given htm , and oftentimes loses it together
with the baggage. This is a common matter
with which Buttgagumaster Traynor has to
contend almost daily. If they have lost the
check they \vant their baggage anyway , and
insist that they be given an opportunity to
go through the btiildlnir and find their chat-
iels. This system was once tolerated , but
soon became the hobby of the kid-gloved
'confidence man , and to such an extent was it
abused that rules were formulated to the
contrary. But tbo boys say that if you hand
over your check , even if it be a needle done
up in tissue paper , Traynor will produce the
collateral with as much regularity as though
it called for a set of harness
Locomotive enginees are , as a rule , very
much attached to their respective locomo
tives and oacn one is actually confident that
he is at the throttle of the fastest and most
reliable wheeler oa the road. They look upon
their ponderous pieces of machinery as being
part human and it is said that some engi
neers talk to their machine as they would tea
a faithful steed. But if you want to bold -n
executive session with an engineer just inti
mate that his machine is a creeper or laggcr ,
which is In the railway parlance for slow
engines. He will ficht ' right then and there.
You may abuse him'butyou must not invade
the sancity of his cab. Men on regular runs
are given an engine. When they rest the
engine rests also. When they are on the road
so is their wheeler , and when the latter is
laid up for repairs in the shops the
engineer awaits its return to service.
Tnis is railxvay etiquette and ia
strictly adhered to. But as to fast wheelers
Engineer Johnston , who rests at the throttle
of 0,7 on tha Union Pacific , is recognized as
huvmg the fastest propeller on the road. It
was ho who made the first division initial
trip tvith the Golden Gate special , and who ,
when belated , thundered along the track
sixty miles per hour and arrived at North
Platte on lime. Some of the engineers
say that Johnson will have his engine pro
vided with a phonograph before he quits , so
that he can converse with it. It is not un
common for Engineer Johnson , after mating
one of his fiyiug trips , to mount at the sta
tion and cuze at the panting monster with an
eye of admiration. Then there is Charley
Sweezey , who regulates the throttle on 77J.
He alinoU worships his "iron horse.1
bweezey has made good time with his ma
chine , on several occasions having measured
track close onto sixty miles per hour. Ho
stales that he always feels contented when
in the cab of 770 , and has rounded many a
curve at a rate of speed that , if with another
engine be would have had an inclination to
desert his | K > t , but xwth his faithful wheeler
be never entertains danger from track jump
ing or dii irraugcnicnt of machinery.
"When Dave WetUerby was pulling a
enger train on tbo Union Pacific , " said a
well Known engineer , "ho always claimed
that his engine foreshadowed danger. If an
open switch , he declared that the engine
would shiver as would a person with a chill ,
and if not a clear track be maintained that
his engine foreshadowed this by slightly
slacking up of its own accord. Queer wasn't
it ! but Dave Wetherby always maintained
that he was sincere. Of course railway men ,
and esj > ecially engineers , with a continued
strain on their minds are addicted to super
stition more or less and Dave was no excep
tion. In several cases , however , his super-
stitiouK indications averted a wreck , but his
continually beint * on the alert for accidents
had a great deal to do with
it. Two weeks before Dave quit tne
road his fireman told me that he was rest
less all the time on the road , and on two dif
ferent occasions , shortly after starting out ,
stated that his 'old girl' was tucking up in
the traces and a wreck was certain. This
was kept up , and finally Wetherby asked for
a vacation , and he needed it , for m his bed
or at his post he foresaw danger. Well , sir ,
the very next day his old machine was
nmashed into scrap iron just a trifle out from
Lincoln. Did you know Cotterell , a fellow
with one arm and one leg gone , that used to
flag here about nine years agol He was on
that eutrino and came near being killed. The
fireman escaped by jumping , and the accident
was a front end collision with an east-bound
freight. Weutnerby's superstition , yon see ,
was not all unfounded. At any rate ho
never returned to bis work , and if I am not
mistaken he is in business at Hastings or
some of those towns out on the line. "

.News was received at noon to-day that the
eloveu-year-old daughter of a Mr. Sells , who
lives on the corner or Twenty-third and D

around an outdoor fire , near the home of her
parents. In some unknown way her clothes
caught fire , and before help could reach bar
she was so terribly burned about the body and
limbs that her recovery is a matter of very
grave doubt.
Print Latham also met with a very pain
ful accident. Ho was at work painting on

L and Tenth streets. Just before noon an
engine rounded the curve and struck his lad

and threw hica to the ground , a distance of
nearly twenty feet , badly bruising- him but
not necessarily fatally. Latham lives at
