LINCOLN , Neb. , March 20. [ Special to Tun
PBB.I The senate Jogged along at so leis
urely n gait this morning ns to leave the Im
pression In a casual obiorvor that It either
Lad very little to do or plenty of time to do
it. The former Is true , nnd ono versed In the
ordinary parliamentary rules could see signs
of haste. Severn ! house bills were ordered to
their third reading , which eliminates the
reference to standing committees nud the
discussion In comralttoo of the whole. The
following measures were crowded forward
in that manner.
Hungato's bill permitting the United States
to buy or condemn a slto for Fort Omaha
nnd ceding the government jurisdiction over
the same.
Caldwcll's bill providing that the supreme
court shall meet in Lincoln In the llrst , Tues
day In January nnd the third Tuesday In
September Instead of In January nnd July.
Towlo's bill for the protection of hotel
Qccpors against dead beats.
House roll 433 , which makes appropria
tions for the current expenses of the state
government nnd Is called the "expense bill"
jtor short , was read a second tlmo and put on
the general file , which prevents the delay of
referring to the standing committee. Senator - '
tor llnymondf chairman of the committee on
finance , thought it oupht to follow ordinary
rules and go to his committee. Church
Howe assured him that It was In the hands
of a committee nnd would bo well digested.
Raymond's ' motion to refer was snowed
The senate passed Sutherland's resolution
which provides that all contracts for sup
plies for state Institutions shall bo lot on n
system of bidding ; that bids shall bo on each
Jtems separately , mid that the heads of the
several Institutions mnko a monthly state
ment to the secretary of state of the supplies
Raymond's resolution requesting the
board of transportation to make a scale of
freight rates to prevent discrimination was
defeated IT to 18. This light has been
fought so often this session that there was
no discussion , and ono or two' anti-monopo
lists voted to table the resolution to prevent
n profitless waste of time.
The committee of the whole took up a bill
drawn by Secretary J. S. Dales , of the state
university. Its purpose was said to bo to
moro clearly dcilno the relations of the
university and Uio Industrial college. Sen
ators Howe , Keckloy , Rausom , tNcsbltt and
Sutherland riddled the bill with arguments
to show that it had boon Ingeniously drawn
to fasten the agricultural experiment sta
tion on the state in the interest of the
professors and onlcors who are drawing
extra salaries or ether pap from the station.
Most of the bill is comnoscd of quotations
from acts ot congress , but nt the end is an
original clause providing that the state shall
maintain the station If the government sub
sidy should cease. The committee took out
the sting by cutting off this tail and gouged
out the heart by removing the enacting
clause. Then It hung up the mangled corpse
in indefinite postponement.
The committee recommended the passage
of Berlin's bill requiring the city comp
troller of Omaha to investigate the books of
tbo school board monthly and report to the
city council.
The senate adjourned at noon till half past-
7 this evening.
A largo audience gathered in expectation
of a contest over the expense bill , but bad to
'tie content with several transient tilts. Nor-
val tried to work in-hls anti-bucket shop bill
by substituting It for all that part of the bill
forbidding tha advertising of lotteries after
jlhe enacting clause. After some discussion
rtho chair ruled it out of order , the same sub-
Hoc t matter having already been killed by
i ( the senate. The bill was laid over without
- . .notion.

uldorntlon , and under the rules it wont over

* The senate then adjourned till morning.

LINCOLN , Nob. , March 30.-H Special Tele
gram to TIIC Bnn.1 The adjournment of the
senate at noon In the face of the universal
desire to got through business nnd go homo
mystified all but the few who understood its
significance. It was nearly midnight when
the senatorial alliance closed Its labors on
the general expense bill. It has nearly
three hundred and fifty items , and the sena
tors considered about ono-thlrd of thorn.
The adjournment nt noon was agreed upon
to glvo senators friendly to retrenchment-
tills afternoon for tholr work with the prun
ing knife. The adjournment was made till
this evening for two purposes. It was ex
pected that house roll 4S4 , known as the
salary bill , would bo received and read
the first tlmo , nnd It was hoped that the con
sideration of the expense bill could bo begun
in committee of the wholo. The first object
was achieved , but after a hard afternoon's
worlt on the expense bill there was hat time
to preparotho amendments agreed on by the
alliance In conference. Consequently the
consideration goes over till morulncr.
Twelity senators were present at this af
ternoon's meeting , and nt the close they
pledged themselves to stand unitedly for the
nctlon of tbo conference. Boss Stout's claim
for interest on warrants was discussed , and
n majority of the senators present voted to
resist any effort to inject it into the general
appropriation bills. Thcro Is an ill-defined
feeling that the Stout , Butler and Kennard
claims would have passed the smmto
had the house not defeated them1
Everybody continues toJlght shy of a jusi-
tivo opinion ns to their fate. Few senators
will commit themselves , but a careful study
of their expressions and action leave the Im
pression that these claims are doomed ,
though they may cause a light that will delay
A largo portion of the 850 items in the ex
pense bill have been pared down by the sena
tors in conference. Their reductions will
aggregate about $300OjO from the bill as It
passed the house. The following statement
shows in round numbers the principal reduc
tions proposed in the appropriations of the
different departments and institutions :
Soldiers ) homo , $14,000 : institution for
feeble-minded , 352,000 ; Hastings hospital
for insane , ? 29,00 { ; Norfolk hospital , $44.000 ;
Lincoln hospital , $42,000 ; state university ,
$45,000 ; ICcnriioy industrial school , $7,000 ;
homo for friendless , $17,000 ; Milford indus
trial home , ? 7,500 ; employes at capital ,
fl.OOO ; supreme court bailiffs , ? 2,000 ; fur
nishing court room , $3,500 ; library furni-
turos § 450 ; public building repair fund ,
$3,000 ; current expenses of state officers ,
§ 5,000 ; miscellaneous , 83,500.
The house allowed tbo institution for
feeble-minded $40,000 for now buildings. The
proposed amendment will allow $10,000 , for anew
now boiler house and kitchen. Another
amendment will allow the Hastings hospital
$12,000 for a now boiler house and 82,000 for
a barn. The house allowed the soldiers'
homo a hospital item of $1,500 , thought
to have been intended as
$15,000 , and a proposed amendment
will make it $7,500 . for a
hospital building. Tbo miscellaneous re
ductions Include $10,000 for bountlns on ani
mals and $12,500.for compiled statutes. The
superintendent of public instruction will be
allowed a small increase for expenses.
There has been talk to-night of adjourn
ment at noon Friday. The expense and
salary bills can bo disposed of if there is no
fight , but there Is'a deficiency bill about
ready to bo passed by the bouse and another
bill containing a number of small claims
which has not yet boon acted on. The latter
may bo expedited by being pruned .and tacked
on the oxpnnso bill as an amendment. The
senators in conference have tried to keep
their actions secret to avoid u swarm of lob
byists , most of whom will got tholr first doll-
, nlto information from this article.
Hnll'R Maximum Tariff mil.
LINCOLNNeb. . , March 20. [ Special to TUB

LINCOI.NNeb. . , March 20 , [ Special I'olo-

crnatcxl in the house this afternoon when Mo-
Urjdo called up house roll 42U , ublft to pay

nounccd the bllt'ns.n steal , and said that thq
county trcasqrcr of CMS county , who Is

told him that the state did not ewe him n
cent m this connection. Certain parties
were pushing the claim for a 10 per cent
"divvy. " McBrldo demanded the proof ,
when Majors took the floor , savagely do *
nounccd the bill , nnd in support of his posi
tion road the following letter , which was
sent to nil the claimants throughout the
state !
'Donr Sir : Having * no special business
for the winter , I nm Inclined to try. to got nn
appropriation through the legislature to pay
county treasurers' fees for collecting school
land moneys for the years 18S4 nnd 1833.
The last legislature absolutely refused
to mahojun appropriation for such purpose ,
and thh ono Is liable to do tbo same , but
there is nothing llko trying and nothing t.Q
Jose. If nil who have fees duo thorn will glvo
tno 10 dor cent of what Is allowed I will un
dertake the work and do my best to got
something. If you wish to put your claim In

ditor ot the stato. has been honeying around
the legislature all winter nud this exposure
of his schema fell on the house llko n thun

but the members know who wns the author
of the latter.
The committee reported the bill baok with
the recommendation that it do not pass , nnd
on a roll call killed the measure bv n vote of
70 to 10. The bill called for $0,778 , ami waste

at the auditor's oftlco and was In the move

The exposure of this scheme by TUG BICE

were generally for grades and grading ; tlio

licensed plumbers has been anything but
satisfactory for the pnst four years. Among
other things they soy "Our losses and annoy
ances have been great owing to tlio ' freedom
nnd latitude allowed them by the city in
cutting our pavements , and the entire lack
of legislation requiring them to cancel their
obligations to us. BonlnnhiB the year 1889
wo are refusing to honor the orders from
plumbers for the repairs of cuts in asphalt
pavements , until such time as your honora

Councilman Burnham moved "That it is
the sense of tbo city council thaj > it deplores
any action and influence "contemplating fur

thorities the location of a postoltlcc slto for

Tbatsucb action and influence is detri
mental to the business and other interests of
the city of Omaha.
A motion to lay it on the table was lost by
a Vote of 0 to 9 , and a vote to adopt it was
carried by 10 to 8.
The committee on public property nnd
building reported in favor of a S5UUOO boifd
from the architect whoso plans for the city
ball shall bo accepted as a guarantee that
the building shall cost no more than the
specifications call for. The report was
The committee on gas and electric light

by the eaa company. This time it was for
repairs and amounted to $83.00 for Feb
Chairman Balcombo , of the board of
works , recommended that the 5 per cent reserve -
servo duo Moupt & Grill ! n for construction
of a sewer in district TO bu paid , and was. re
ferred to the comtnlttoo on sowers.
The counoil then wont into committee , with
Councilman Burnharo In the chair. The first
question considered was the granting of a
thirty-year franchise to the Omaha subway
company for the purpose of nutting all over
head wires under ground , the company to
furnish all necessary conduits.
Councilman Snyder wanted to hear from
tbo Chicago delegation as to the feasibility of
the scheme. . - -
; Councilman Leo suggested that the city
engineer glvo the explanation. Ho did.
Ho said ho found- its success depended not
on the system , but the material used in the
conduits. The electrical companies admitted
that it was only a question of time until all
their wires wont under ground. It seemed
to bo generally admitted by those Interested
that the art of constructing conduits was In
its infancy , and thai there was at present
but little- difference between the rival
systems , but what tbero was went in favor
of the Domett.
"I understand thr.t Mr. Lowry kept pretty
sober while there. I would like to hear from
him , " eaid Councilman Boyd. Councilman
Lowry sum the Dorsett system was put down
at n cost of about $23,009 per mile , nnd yet
the arc light and other electrical companies
worn paying more than that for n system of
Iron piping.
By request Engineer Tlllson explained
the newly inadn soil in Chicago , rendered the
laying of iron pipes necessary. Where the
ground was now imido in Omaha it would
meet with the same difficulties.
Councilman Lee Mid the question of cost
was not one that ; affected the city. Tim
real question was whether or not the
wires should bo put under ground. A year
ago Kaspar had moved' ' the wires should
go < under ground , but , was outvoted. Ho
( Lee ) had subsequently ) brought in nn
ordinance giving JoliiieGrant a franchise ,
but it is still before 'thocouncil. . Thou the
present company asUcd-for'u franchise , and
It is being opposedby > 'the telephone , tele
graph and electric light companies. The
question for the counoil , rtas representatives
of the people , to decide "was whether the
wires should go uil'dor-i ground. If they
thought they should , then some company
should bo given n franchise , for until the
conduits wore placed 'ttiey could not compel
the companies to put their wires under
Councilman Davltfl'told ' what the dele
gation did while .in 0' Chicago. Thurs
day they spent about ) an hour look
ing nt conduits. . .Friday they went
to see the Western Union telegraph olllcuils.
They seemed willing to put the Iwlres under
ground , but were looking for the best system.
They were not using and never had used the
Porsctt system. Tim opinion on that system
was unfavorable to it , and iiono of it had
boon laid In four and n half years. It was
declared to bo impracticable , and that it was
expansive to koup in repair. Hu did not
thtak the time bud come for Otnaha or any
other city to compel the companies to put
their wires under ground , though It would
como some time , He would oppose granting
any franchise to any subway company ,
Councilman Hascall said that the question
of a premature building of conduits , or tboir
impracticability when built , was a risk that
the companion ulono had to run. The wires
should go underground , and ho thought the
council shoula vote for u sub
way ordinance of some kind , without
granting u monopoly to any one company.
Councilman Bedford thought la view of
the great diversity of opinion Us to the prac
ticability of ttio Dorsott system thn iho
could not vote M It 'Ho thought it was n
stock schomp , nnd that there was n letter in
existence , now In poisosslon of n member of
the council , that might throw some light on
the subject.
Councilman Dnvis endorsed Bedford's ro-
tnarksj and finally produced n lottor. It win
from A. Shfllliiglawi electrician for Armour
Co. H was addressed to OhnfTco and
Davis , nnd Insinuated that n majority of the
counoll had boon "fixed , " and that Mr. Dor-
sett had tried to fix him by offorlns him a tx > -
sltlon as superintendent ot construction
of Itlio Omaha subway system.
Furthermore ho had boon offered
n financial Interest In thrx company , Ho
claimed that the system would not stand a
close nnd impartial Investigation.
There was n storm at once , and A. Shll-
llnRlaw , electrician for Armour & Cd. , came
In for a roasting all around. Councilman
O'Connor explained that the writer had gone
down to Chicago with them , had invited
them to the theater at his expense , nnd hud
spoken ngnlntt the proposed company.
Councilman Hascnl , Sanders nnd Knswar
followed In the same strain or moro so.
Councilman Lowry objected to any nbtiso
of Shllllnglaw.
Councilman Chaffco spoke in defense of
Shlllluglnw , and then. Hnscnll put in another
roast. Ho claimed that Instead of thu coun
cil being fixed It was solf-ovldcnt that ho
was trying to bo fixed himself. Some mem
bers of the council wore endeavoring to put
themselves nbovo the others , nnd wore using
this moans of.endcavorlng to fix n stlgmn
on those who differed from them.
Councilman Lee asked for a special com
mittee to Investigate the charges mode In
the letter. It was n serious charge to bring
ngnlnst the council , nnd should bo sifted to
the bottom. Ho had mot the writer on the
train , and had noticed that ho was very ao-
tlvo in spanking of the impracticability of
the conduit system so much so that ho
asked Davis and Chaffeo If ho was not In the
pay of the telegraph company.
Councilman whcolor sold it was not n ma
terial question. If anything was investigated
it should bo the practicability of the system ,
not the charges against the councilman. Ho
would oppose the company.
Councilman Lowry astonished the council"
by saying that ho was one councilman who
had bcon offered n bunch of stock In the
company. Ho supported Shllllnglaw and
courted nn Investigation. Ho would toll the
amount of stock offered him. and who It wus
offered it.
was then rend. It was dated March 25. nnd
stated that Shlllinglnw had approached htm
with the information that ho could control
two or three members of the council , and
asking on what terms he could got In on the
ground floor of the deal. He was not in
Omaha for his health , and xvas willing to use
his influence with two or throe of the council
who would rely on his judgment "nnd do ns
ho desired them In the matter of granting
the Omaha franchise. If ho could get into
the deal on the bottom ho would do all ho
could to assist in getting a favorable report
of the commute. "
The council then rose and reported in favor
of withholding action on the ordinance. The
chair then appointed Councllmcu Burnham ,
Bailey , Bedford , Ford and Kaspar as a com
mittee of Investigation.
An ordinance authorizing the annual levy
of taxes for park purposes was read n first
and second time , and the council adjourned.
As tbo council filed out two rival electri
cians came in contact with each other , and a
war of words ensued.
"You can't bring on your committees any
too quick for mo , " said one.
"I'll trot you n heat anyhow , nnd I'll just
about prove that you're bought yourself nnd
you tried to buy others , " sold his oppo
"It's a lie ! You can't prove it In the coun
cil or the committee. "
"Well , I can prove It just as well hero ns
