Modlo demanded a call of tlio house , which ,
being objected to by Watson , was ruled out
of order by the speaker.

question , nnd read the rules sustaining his
Tlio speaker sustained the point.
Kruso thrn arose to n point of order nnd de
manded n call of tlio house.
White Insisted tlmt the call of the house
could not bo tnndo after the previous question
was ordered.
The speaker overruled the point nnd de
cided that the roll cnll on the resolution must
proceed , [ Wild cheers from the republicans
and democrats. ]
ICruso endeavored to appeal from this de
cision , but the clerk , having called the tmtno
of "Mr. Albert" nnd received n response , the
clmlr ruled that the appeal came too Into nud
the roll cnll proceeded.
When tlio nmtio of Mr. Gale , the mover of
the resolution , was called ho arose nnd said
In support of tills resolution : "I dcslro to
say that Its adoption Is but nn act

from democrats. ]
When the nntnoof Porter was called that
gentleman arose- and said ho proposed to rend
Borne law In explanation of his vote , which
was met by n shower of objections from the
' otner Bide of the house. Uoth sides shouted
defiance back nnd forth till they were hoarse.
The speaker's grivcl finally produced some
semblance of order , when the roll call was
Scott ( itul ) claimed that the resolution was
unconstitutional nnd It was the duty of every
true man to vote "No. "
Stevens ( tnd ) of Flllmoro had never tam
pered with his honor nnd esteemed It the
proudest privilege of his Ufa to vote no.
[ Great cheers from the independents. ]
Slovens ( Ind ) of Pumas As this Is no violation

the supreme court 1 vote "No. " [ Derisive
cries of "Good 1" from the republicans. ]
The roll call on the resolution Inviting Boyd
to rend his message before n Joint convention
of the house ana senate had been completed.
The secretary was colng over the list of ab-
Bcntocs. Intense sllcnco prevailed and every
eye was upon the ofllcors of the house , who ,
It was feared , were anything but satisfied
with the call. Fifty people kept count on
the latter.
Suddenly tlio secretary discontinued the
call of absentees nnd turned to the sneaker.
Beside the latter stood the third assistant
secretary. Upon him the chair depended for
Up rushed Stevens ( Ind. ) of Pumas. Then

Stevens at the chair tool : the typo-written
copy of the document , nnd In a whisper to the
clmlr said , referring to the joint convention
referred to in It : "That's n mistake a very
serious oversight" and returned to his seat.
Watson ( rep ) Why don't you declare the
vote , Mr. Speaker !
Stevens of Pumas ( Ind ) This resolution
Is an illegal one and wo appeal to the decision
of the supreme court. You who thought sc
much of the supreme court a few weeks ago ,
why do you want to trample It under fool
now !
Watson You people nro the constitutional

Everybody by this tlmo began to grow ex
cited and half n doxcn members tried to gel
the speaker's attention. But that dignitary
Was in n stuay , with halt a dozen friend ;
prompting him to decline to declare the vote ,
Calls were made for another reading of tlu
resolution and the secretary responded t (
them ,
Church Howe then approached the score
tary's desk nnd In insinuating nnd paclflca
tory tones asuod : "Why don't you deelnn
the voto. There are flfty.flvo votes cast fo :
the resolution. We've all kept track. Yoi
can't change the result , "
The chair , after some deliberation nnd considerable
siderablo prompting , nnnounced that the resolution
elution was unconstitutional , nnd as such li
coula not bo further considered.
Watson Do yon decline to announce tin
vote ? That's the question.
The Speaker The chair holds that this
bouso cannot iuvlto Mr. Lioyil to attend i

it has no control.

Several more demands were made for i

Again the chair refused and repeated that

Watson Then I nnpeal from the decision
of the chair.
This was the second appeal nnd brought
icarly every Hoyd tmn to his foot. Nearly
mlf of tlio independents liad nlso risen , but
nest of them appeared dazed and all of them
scorned moro or less discouraged. They clung
nninly to the hope that the resolution was ,
as their lenders claimed , unconstitutional.
Among the leaders were Slovens of Furnas ,
Sorter of Morrlck , Stevens of Flllmoro and
Scott of Dawsou. These literally bom
barded the chair with all Kinds of
notions. They hoped , soomlngly , to strlko
mo which might onivblo thorn to knock out
the majority , which was slowly but surely
n-csslng them Into n corner whence they
could not escape.
The loaders of the Boyd men Howe , Wat
son nnd McKesson were iis placid at nion
conscious of victory could be. White , how
ever , peregrinated from his seat up and down
ils alloy and then to the mala nlslo with his
omnipresent pencil traveling between his
uoutli nnd fingers.
Hy this tlmo the news of the fight had gone
ibroad and the gallery was packed with excited -
cited and Interested spectators.
In reply to Watson's appeal from the deci
sion of the chair the latter said : "Under our
construction of the constitution thcro can bo
no appeal. "
This declaration was greeted with derisive
yells and peals of laughter by the Boyd men.
Scott of Unwson vocifer.itod several points
of order , but they fell on the unlistonlng
speaker's oars.
Howe Will the clerk please ) toll bow the
vote stood as far as it went I
The clerk , however , anticipated the effect
oven su ch nn announcement would have on
the jubilant Boyd men and again evaded the
question by replying : "Tho roll call was not
completed. "
Howe Why don't you complete It , then ,
Oakley of Lancaster , ( in response to a
number of dilatory motions ) You know ,
Mr. Speaker , you can not reply to these , and
you are reversing your own ruling of yester
The Chair I am acting under the rules and
the constitution.
Oakloy Can the rules and the constitution
bo in error. It is preposterous.
White I rise to a point of order. Under
your ruling of yesterday no business could
bo transacted pending u roll cnll. Now , why
don't hold ? We'll hero
you so now stay any
v/iiy and organize ourselves.
Watsou Yes , and we'll answer no roll call
cither until this roll call Is mado.
This determination had a most depressing
effect upon the Independents. They resolved
themselves into bunches of twos , threes aud
half dozens and quietly'admitted that they
hod been beaten.
This discouraging effect was intensified by
Gale of Brown , who roio in the midst of the
Independent camp and said : "Tnls side has
continued this fight long enough. It evi
dently does not llko the vote that has boon
taken. J f It persists In Impeding the progress
of business nnd overthrowing the authority
of the majority It Is talcing In Its hands the
rope which will hang It. [ Loud cheers from
tbo Boyd men ] .

of a man to mid shelter on this side of the

Scott of Dawson These follows n few days
ago wanted us to appeal to the supreme court
Now that wo have done so this is what wo

Porter of Morrick I hnvo no wish to con
tinue this filibustering. Wo hnvo given you
n doao of your own medicine. But I'll ' agree
thnt If you rescind this resolution so far ns it
relates to the joint convention with the son-
ute and bring in a resolution relating only to
this house I'll vote with you. [ Cheers ant
Inughter ] .
But no , the Boyd men would not budge.
Every one of them were a smllo. But the
smiles had faded from their opponents.
Thn chair was white In the face , expressive
partly of disappointment and partly of morti
fication. He was ruling to please his party ,
though It was not apparent that ho wns noi
nUo ruling according to his own convictions.
His people were deserting him. Some 1m
portuned him to retire. To them It seemed
the only manner in which to bring the un
equal strife to a close.
This move spread like wildfire , and accord
ingly , lifter n short and hurried conference on
the part of the independent leaden , Tayloi
retired from the chair.
There was sllonco of the most Impressive
character In the chamber for a moment. The
Boyd men saw that they had mortally

not now before the senate.
Senator Warner of Fillmore moved the
suspohsion of the rules and the consideration
of the report of the joint commlttco on
Thayer's message.
The president annouuced tha question nnd
this brought Senator Switzler to his feet.
Ho said that ho was not oppscd to hearing
the report of Governor Thayer. It contained ,
ho thought , very valuable material. The
senate , however , nnd placed Itself on record
und ho thought in a respectful way. The
proposition came from the house to the sen
ate in the matter of Oovernor Tlmyer's deliv
ery of lib nunual message. That concurrent
resolution wusjad pted , not n senator objectIng -
Ing lo the appointment of the committee.
After the senate had mot tbo committee of
the house on the question of receiving the
message of tbaoutgolng governor , the senate
thought that thp present governor , according
to law , should bo heard. There was unanim
ity in tbo action of the aetmto regarding the
adoption of tlio motion that the committee
bo appointed in behalf of thu senate to wait
upon the governor-elect or do facto , and thnt
the getitlenmn'excrclnliig nnd claiming iho
right to exorcise the ofilco of governor be In
vited also to deliver his message. This was
nearly unanimously adopted. lu win curried
into tlio other where it was sat upon.
"I hold that nsrfgentlouiQii of respectability ,

thnt it was a i direct affront to the senate of
the state for the house in taking the action
which it did.Isay regardless 'of party nnill-
ations thnt it was the duty of the senate aud
house to hear that message. I am of the
opinion that it is not proper to sit hero nnd
allow the other house to run the affairs of the
state , to allow them to say the house will
hnvo what it sees fit , and tbo senate must
take what Is given It. I misjudge the senate
if it SJubmils to such a stuto of affairs. If
this report is adopted It will have the effect
that the senate advocates the procedure
which the house has Inaugurated , and , us
members of the new parly nnd members of
the republican nnd democratic purlieu I do
not ucllcvo that wo'should Inaugurate a new
system. Wo ought not to proceed contrary

of procedure by the highest authority
in this siato. I nm opposed lo any clement
in the legislature which tries to drag us Into
anything tlmt Is beyond the custom and au-
ihorlly of law. This report ought to bo voted
down for tbo simple reason that wo have not
had from the house a respectful report of its
action upon the concurrent resolution which
wo sent to it. They simply shelved It. They
have not oven sent it back , and let us know
what they did with It. They paid no respect
to it whatever. Are wo to recede from the
position wo took in this matter ? Let us call
for two messages and not recognize n man
who for n mouth nt least has not been in tlio
ofllco of governor. This report ought to be
reported back to this committee with instnic-
llons lo proceed in the regular way. If we
adopt this report , we commit ourselves to
the order of affairs which the house has rec
ommended. I say tub , not because there
is any special reason or dns'.i-o ' for
the .message of Governor Boyd to
bo put in here . by him , but I bollovo
there are senators who know some of the
contents of that mcssagu , unit I bollovo that
they know tlmt there Is mutter in Unit mcs-
sngo which this senate would bo glad to hear
unanimously mid DO glad to receive. So I
say , lot us take the position that wo started
out lu this matter to lot the report bo laid
upon the table mid ascertain what the house
did with our resolution asking for a concur
rent committee to wait upon Governor Boya.
I think it is unwlso to adopt the motion of
the senator. It will have a far moro reaching
effect than bo anticipated when It was Intro
duced. "
Senator Collins suld that If the senate re
fused to adopt the motion It would take Iho
same undignified stand toward Iho ex-gov
ernor of Iho slate which the house did when
it went back on Its own record. If the house
wished to assume an undignified attitude lot
it nlso assume the responsibility for the samo.

action of the house was to bo regretted ho

Ltxcortr , NobV 'Fob. 4. [ Special to Tnu
BKK. ] There is no more perplexing problem
before the ICKldaiAro than how to prevent
the hanks frouiietwrglnK usurious rates of in
terest. The platform of tha Independents Is
clear and explicit In demanding relief from
the "chattel mortgage fiends , " and " 2 per
cent sharks , " hul Ihu members of that party
are almost hopltle ly divided as to the
method of reaching'1 the much desired result.
Last evening tho'ihouso ' judiciary comtnit-
tco gave audieixJoivox-Senator 12.1C. Brown ,
a loading bankorottLlneoln , who argued at
length that all usury laws should bo ruuoaled
and competition . would then rcgulato thu
value of money. Ho urged that monuy , liku
hay and grain , was worth all it would bring
in the market , and held out thu Idea lhat this
"f rco competition" among loan brokers would
have a strong tendency to reduce the rates of
interest' , and In the cud bo inueh moro effect
ive than the most stringent usury laws that
can bo devised.
The majority of the committee were not
able to agree with these views , but all efforts
to unlto upon any of the numerous bills now
pending were fruitless. Some of the members -
bors favor forfeiting both principal and in
terest to the. borrower , whllo others think
bolh ought to po to the school fund , A few
advocate making the loaning of money at
usurious rates of Interest a felony , or at least
a high misdemeanor , punishable l > y both line
and Imprisonment. Tno committeu has prao
tlcally agreed to let the legal rate remain at 7
and 10 per cunt for contracts.
The bill finally agreed upon by the major
ity of the commlttco will nulto likely provide
Tor forfeiture of both principal aud Interest
to the borrower , with n line equal to the priii-
clpalfor the bonollt of the school fund. The
introduction of thu bill will bo followed by n
lirolonged discussion , nnd It Is by no mciius
certain what the final outcome will bo.

of what Is known ns the military board of the
Nebraska National guards , to audit Iho bills
presented as the consequence of the guards'
going to tlio front during the latu Indian war

These present were General VlfquulnGen

Colpucl Brett of the First , Colonel Bills of

Hedges of Shelton was to have been present ,
but wns proveiitod by duath , his deimsu hav
ing taken plneo Monday nlghl , No notion
was Inken regarding the captain's death , but
it was generally deplored. All the members
present hold that It was tlio result of over
work uud e-xposuro during the late cam
paign. The captain's duties kept him going
ilny and night yet ho norcr retired without
linviiig hh reports of each day closed and per
fect , The studious tr.nunor In which he > attend

all around him , everyone of whom congratu

selected for a trying place.
On his return with the troops ho parted
from ninny of Iho boys who were going south ,
at Fremont , nnd almost prophetically re
marked that ho full very fatigued nnd that ho
was glad to get homo to rest. The rest , however -
over , which came to him was that which may
never bo disturbed.
General Vifqunln says that the first notion
which will bo taken regarding Captain
Hodgels death will bo by thoofllcora of the
brigade , who will bo called together before
The bills presented to tbo board aggre
gated ? 40,000. They cnmo Irom two or three
flrm-riii Lincoln nnd a couple of firms In Fre
mont. They cover everything used oy un
army In tlmo of war. Some of them are nlso
from private Individuals who wore compelled
to purchase articles of clothing In order lo lit
themselves for the field. The blllft , however ,
will not bu included in the recommendation
of iho board. A bill providing for an appro
priation of $40.000 to liquidate the Indebted
ness Incurred bv the late war bus already
been Introduced In the bouso.
This bill nnd the action of the board sug
gests a consideration of tno appropriation
which will bo asked In order to-support the
national guards the next two years.
The appropriation for the last two years
wns $ ' 20,100 , and thnt amount was consumed
in hall rent and other things the llrst year
after it was available. This leaves a dollelt
which must also bo provided for. Ill * thought
that nn appropriation of $10,000 will bo risked
from the legislature , and from this amount it
la hoped tlmt enough may bo saved to repair
Lho pro-sent uniform * of the force nnd supply
the men with winter clothing.
