county have made a careful oUlino p of the
condition of affaire in that county , and have
written to Ucprosentatlvo Stevens that they
will ne-cdnt least 0,000 bushels of wheat for

those absolutely dcUltuto. The nraour.t of

LIXCOI.V , Nob. , Jan. ! iO. [ Special to TIIH
Unn. ] Mr. Taylor ( Ind ) of Johnson has sud
denly blossomed out Into prominence by a
single bold step. Ho has Introduced a bill
which provides that wholesale houses shall
sell Roods to farmers' clubs or Individuals
who offer to p.iv cash , Just as cheap us they
etll to tlio retail trdo. On being Interviewed
ns to the purpose of this unltiuo bill , Mr.
Taylor unlosomod himself ns follows :
" 1 propose to : nako wholesale merchants
Boll Jusl as cheaply to mo as to any retail
dealer , when I have the cash. I have bee n
refuseil right hero In Lincoln , oven when I
offered to tnko poods by the barrel. A great
many alliances buy through n , purchasing
agent , nnd they cannot get the goods on ac
count of the barriers put up by the trade ,
nnd wo propose to sco If thora Is not some
remedy. The wholesale merchants will not
fight this law nt nil. They are so-
srctly In favor cf such u measure ,
all tbo opposition will couio from the retail-
* rs , nnd I expect they will fight It bitterly.
Some any this bill Is not constitutional , but
* o have n right to prohibit trusts , and this
agreement Is m the nnturo of u trust. At
nny ruto. wo propose to put it through if nos-
nlblo. The penalty is not largo enough to
rauso much of a light. The fine for the first
offense Is $ ; . " > , for the second : ? r > 0 nnd for the
third $100. If tbls bill is nut constitutional
wo will have a show of reason to change the
constitution. I want you to understand that
this is neb n caucus measure. I got up this
hill myself and have not asked the boys yet
whether they will stand uy mo or not , hut 1
assure yon of ono thin * , ' , nnd that is I an :
going to do my level best to put this measure
through. "
As he made these remarks his countenance
lit up , Ms eyes twinkled und the roportoi
turned away , firmly convinced that ho uiaaut
every word that ho said.

Vandalism Is running wild nt the cnpttol

of the building on Sunday , but he failed to
show up whore most needed.
The chair corrected Senator Switzlcr on a
poiuf of order and pi enounced his name

chair with n correction of bis nntno and
added : "I hnvo also been conloiindod on

and I protest. " It was nil good natured , and
the cjulik retort raised n hearty laugh.

such a disrespect ns no subordinate should
offer the dignity of the senate. This course
will not bo tolerated. It has been the custom
to admit visitors at the request of the sena
tors , and that courtesy will not bo denied ;
but other than this the doorkeeper will ad

otllccr. Employes must understand that
they are to bo absolutely subordinate. They
are creatures of the senate , and under no cir
cumstances will insubordination ho toler

some admission cards printed , probably with
out thought of its Impropriety , and the lieu
tenant governor felt indignant at the as
sumption of authority that belonged to him

of Fort ledge ) vs tbo Chicago , Uoolc Island &
Pacific railway was argued in the supreme

conditional on running the road Into the lat
ter city. The line was built six miles west
of Fort Dodge. A plug road was built into
the city nnd operated until two years ago ,
when the same was abandoned and the track
taken up. The present suit is to compel the
company to operate the main line Into Fort
Dodge or surrender the land grant of over
100,000 acres.

The incident that occurred today would
have taken place several elays ago hut for the
Indiscretion of Senator Cameron. Ho has
been opposed to the hill nil along , but ' until
todnv ho has not been willing to vo'to with
the democrats. This morning ho signified
his intention to do so , and then Mr , Stanford
loft the senate chamber without getting a
pair. This gave the opposition a majority nnd
atn , signal from Mr , Gorninn the young
senator from Colorado arose and mndo his
motion. The republicans were surprised at
the coup dootat , but many of them were de
lighted. There has boon n very great nnd
increasing dissatisfaction nt the legislative
situation. Several very Important measures
are pending , the fate of which has been in
volved In the elections bill , and their advo
cates were becoming accordingly restive.
vVhllo the roll was being called Mr. Gor
man sat in his chair wearing n smllo of satis
faction and confidence , for ho knew just
what the vote would bo. When the result
was announced Mr. Hoar heaved a deep sigh ,
and jamming bis hands far down into his
breeches pockets stnhtcd awav to his com-
mltteo room with mi air of indifference to
subsequent proceedings.
The uest friends of ttio elections bill frankly
admit tlllit the outlook for Its success is almost
hopeless. There can no longer bo any excuse
for maintaining that either tlio closure reso
lution or the elections bill has any real en
couragement. There remain of this session
but live weeks and ono day. Mr. Allison ,
chairman of the senate committee on appro
priations , told your correspondent this after
noon that all of throe \\eoks' long continuous
consideration of the appropriation bills
would bo required in order to complete these
measures before March . This would leave
but two wei'ks and a day for general legisla
tion. Not one-half of the \\crk upon the reg
ular appropriation hills has boon com
pleted. it is stated that the rcappor-
tlonmont lull will occupy nearly
all of this weak in the senate.
Then there are the bankruptcy , supreme
court reorganization , general agricultural , iu-
' .ernatloiinl copyright and other measures ,
ivlnch , of necessity , must bo passed , but not
liulf of this can ho acted upon before the
time comes whoa the appropriation bills must
bo taken up if they are passed before
March ! .
Senator Paddock is very indignant over
the report in Omaha that ho bus been opposed
to the construction of a rival railroad bridge
over the Missouri. " 1 am a loss to know , "
said the senator this evening , "who could
have been so malicious as to start this
canard. I fqel , as I have felt for years ,
that a competing railroad bridge is a prime
necessity , no.t only for that city , but for Lin
coln , Beatrice and the rest of the stato. Ko-
cent dovtlopmemts with the Uiiloti'Paclllo
bridge made the need all the more ) apparent.
I have always "boeu ready , and am now ,
to tnko off my coat and worK
for such a bridgo. Dut I am not
ready to assist in duplicating the Dbuglas
street fiasco , which was chartered bv con-
grcsj as a competing railroad bridge and was
constructed in dcfianco of the charter re
quirements to prevent the very competition
which it was supposed to furnish.
The Uast Omaha bridge bill as Introduced
was clcaily and on Its face merely
a street railway and pedestrian bridge. I
have the best o [ reasons for suspecting that
it was originally intende'd for npthing else.
My colleague saw the point and at once , with
the assistance of Mr. Council , inado radical
amendments to the bill , designed to prevent
the occupation of another bridge site by a
structure which would only block the way
for sccurlnir to Omaha n f rco railroad bridge ,
Several days later Information came to mo of
such a positive nature that I asked a delay of
a day or two in the report until I could verify
in the interest of Omaha Und the stnto
the news sent mo , my object being to offer
such additional amendments ann only sucti as
might bo found ncodcd to absolutely assure
a steam railroad bridge , adequate In size nnel
strength for the use of nny line which de
sired to use. As , owing to the
deadlock iu the senate , the biU
could not possibly bo reported
for a number of days to come , compliance
with my request would not have deferred
for a moment the progress of the bill in
the son u to. It is still , iu committee , and
cannot bo reported until the tangle
of closure and elections bill is
untied. Let mo make a suggestion
right hero. The owership of the Union Pa
cific bridge and tlio Douglas street bridge is
to a largo degree the sumo. The names ol
heavy btockholders In both appear in the
prospect directory of the ICast Omaha bridgo.
In the light of post experience Omaha
cannot nITord to take nny chances.
The brldg bill must bo Ironclad.
Congress will , I urn sine , demand this If the
city does not. With the two most available
brfdgo sites already occupied and the Iowa
roads barred from access to our state by way
of Omaha wo cannot afford to tjlve awny a
charter for the last remaining slto if It Is
only to bo used for speculative purposes anil
to prevent through the sanctloaof lawwbal
It was Intended to suoservo. I at nny rate
cannot bo made a party to such a schema. "
The Callaway postofllco dlfllculty has at
last bcon dcthiltoly settled. Some tlmo ago
their olllco was removed from the old town tea
a position near the railroad ! , aud there
was a vigorous protest sent hero in
opposition to the move. An Inspector was
dispatched to Callaway , which is in Custer
county , and ho looked Into the ground * upon
which the protests were made , ilo has movct
the ofllco back to the old location and loft ll

As early as 7 o'clock the crowd began to nr-
rlvo , and a half hour lalcr the street in

Jostling sea ot people. Many ladles
fainted ia the Jam as the crow el
surged forward to gain entrance , and the

effective in keeping them back. Dy half
nuat 8 every available- space inside the amphi
theater , In the roiervo seats nnd on the
promenades , lu fact throughout the whole
vast building , was occupied by man , woman
or child. A line band was on hand and Its

metnt of the occasion ,
The riders Keadlug , Martin , Schill , Gor-
wingand Ashiugor were promptly given a

Gerwlngauei Martin also rode well , and the
hotting was about equally divided between
