was also discussed , as was the question of
Increased mall facilities on the Union Pacific.
Telegraph tolls , however , was the principal
thomoof talk. Next Juno will be two years

which the government should pay tbo West

ern Union refused to accept these rates , but
continued to norfonn tbo service. The consequence
quence is that the government lias paid noth-
InK for its UHO of the telegraph since that
time , and the amount now duo the company
has reached largo proportions. Gould talked
the matter over with Wanamaltor , but no

No. 23 nnd 0 contain respectively 01,338 and
7SS01 acres and cover lauds located within
the Saline , Ivan. , land district. List No. 31
contains 301,109 acres of land , located la the
North Platte anaBloomlneton laud districts
in Nebraska. These lands have long since
been sold by the railroad company to private
parties , anil the effect of these approvals will
ho to confirm , the titles of settlers and to
bring the laud within the jurisdiction of the
states in which they are located. The ut
most care has been taken not to ntiprovo

said today , would continue to bo exorcised
with oven more vigilance as the lists cover
ing lands nearer the Uocky mountain regions
came up for consideration.

Nnw YOHK , April 4. The sugar trust com-
nlttco of the state senate resumed Its hoar-
ngs today. Theodore Havomeycr said that
the American sugar refining company had
nothing to do with the California refineries.
lhcro was nothing in the report that the re-
Ineries were going to comblno and raise
The chairman showed the witness a loiter
ccclvpd stntlntr that nn agreemeut had boon
entered Into between tlia trust and all other
refiners on one part and the principal whole
sale ) grocers of the country on the other part
that the American rcjlnorics are to pay all
; rocers ) per cent per pound , together with
1 per cent discount If the bills are paid
within ono week from sale. In return the
jroccrs pledge themselves to boycott or note
: o purchase any foreign refined sugar abroad
or at homo.
Ilitvcinoycr said the whole thing was a lie.
John K. Searlcs , treasurer of the old trust ,
expressed the opinion that if the manufacture
of sugar lu this country was under oao man
agement It could be supplied to the public at
a cheaper rate mid with more profit to the re
finer than through siiu'lo operations.
A IOIIR discussion took place as to the pro
duction of the corporation's books , in ttio
course of which counsel remarked that ho
didn't ' sco why the committee wanted to cx-
nminn thn hnnlrq. nnvhnw.
Senator Irwin flared up and told Iho supir
people several things , among others that it is
reported that the trust's dividends uro made
by operations In Wall street.
Mr. II , O. Havornoyor sharply Interjected
that such talk was all rot.
Senator Irwin replied : "If I had proof of
all I heard , you all ought to be In states
prison. "
Thereupon Mr. T. A Havomoycr grew
angry and objected to the chairman acting as
judge before the case was tried.
Searles went on to say that , to his knowl
edge , thuro was no agreement for a division
of the country between Sprockets and the
trust. Havemoyer , ho said , had made a sort
of arrangement of a personal naluro with
Sprcckels that did not affect the company.
Hurry O. Havemoyer was called and or
dered to produce the hooks of the consti
tuent companies. Ho said ho was unable to
do so ; that they wore in Now Jersey , r.nd
although ho was president of the company
ho could not have them brought hero , as
they wore the property of the corooratiou.

Causes the How How It
Came About.
The county commissioners hold nn old-time
circus yesterday afternoon , and for a couple
of hours parties about the county court house
enjoyed the matinee , by living over again the
wild and warlike days of two years ago.
As soon as Chnirman O'Kceffo called the
body to order Auditor Evans and his clerk ,
Oscar Stephens , entered the room , curryintr
the records and papers. . Evans occupied a
seat In the pit and StopCons commenced to
read in a dreary monotone the proceedings of
the last meeting.
Ho had not read more than a dozen sen
tences when Berlin said :
"Mr. Chairman , 1 nsk that the proper
person shall act as secretary of this
board. "
"Who Is that person ! " asked O'ICecfTo.
"Tho statutes plainly state that the county
clerk or his deputy shall be the clerk of the
board of commissioners. "
"The county clerk has stated to this
board , " said O'Keelto , "that tbo salary al
lowed for thutofllco will not permit him to
do the work or to biro a deputy to do the
work required ol a secretary of this board.
It requires tbo time of one man to do this
work , "
"Then I will offer the following resolu
tion , " said Berlin , and ho read :
Whereas , The statutes plainly provide that
the county clerk Is and should 1m ( hu clerk of
the county.board of commissioners , { or which
ecrvlees be shall ( and does ) receive the sum ot
JIOO per annum o > eu section 7J and 74 , pugo U5U ) ;
therefore , bo It
Ki-Milved , That all the records , papers , etc. ,
pertaining to the board of county commis
sioners be turned iivor lif the county clerk und
that ho bo and Is hcruby notlllud to uot us
sueh clerk of tbu board In conformity
with thu statutes governing biicu otlleu.
The resolution was Uid'over until the next
meeting , hut not until * ewe personalities had
been exchanged. . , , .
"I have another resolution , " said Berlin as
ho read :
Whereas , The 8orvlc'o ' > 1Qf A. J. Webb , clerk
of the board of county citiiimlsslnners , and J ,
W. Uussoll , engineer of Hie counly hospital ,
have been ilUnenscd wJtblby this board ; there

Hesolved , That this board has always found
them both honest , relliiblo und etllclent ser
vants , and stub < carries with It no

acter , , . : | ,
The resolution was.r adopted without dis
cussion and the busincss'jiroceeded.
'County Attorney Mdhonoy submitted
another report upon the' 'proposition ' to lease

As before ho thought thecommlssloners have
no authority to enter into such a lease. Ho
thoiiL'ht that If the party wanted to take his
chances on ejectment ho may bo nllowocAo
go on with his work , providing ho pays the

The special committee on rules presented a
report , which was adopted.
Chairman O'Keefo presented a resolution ,
which provides that In tbo future nil bills ami
claims shall bo first tiled with the county
clerk and then passed to the county auditor ,
who shall O. 1C. them before they are pro-
tented to tbo board.
This was the signal for war , and each mem
ber of the board shied his castor into the
ring. Berlin was the first man to attract the
attention of the chair. Ho said : "I was
absent at the last meeting of the board , but
when I returned I found that the only two
Americans In the employ of the county had
been discharged thrown out of employment
without a moment's notice , and right hero I
want to protest against such proceedings. "
"Wait n niinuto , " Bold O'KcolTc , "until
you hear a resolution , " and ho read ono
which states that Oscar Stephens , the deputy
auditor , should perform the clerical work for
the board , and for such services ho shall re
ceive a salary of ? 100 per month , dating from
April 1.
"So much the worse , " continued Berlin.
"It is a known .fact that there is no law
authorizing an auditor , and now you ask that
this man who is acting- without any authority
of law shall do this work and render services
which wo have no right to accept. It is dis
graceful , the manner in which the affairs of
this board are conducted , and I am almost
ashamed to acknowledge tbat I um a member
of the body , "
"Heslgn then , " said Corrlgan.
' 'Now , Mr. Berlin , if you are through I
would like to say a word , " said O'KeofTe , as
ho called Corrlgau to the chair. After tak-
inp the place on the floor ho said : "When
you say wo discharged the only American ,
you lie , as you know that every man about
the building Is an American , and I stand here
to defend them and resent your Insult , "
pointing his linger at Berlin.
I'l hiivo been on this board for nine years
and until three years ago wo had no system. "
lTbat wes after you put Webb into the
ofllco , " interrupted Berlin.
"I will not bo Interrupted , " said O'lCceffo
as ho continued : "You know the auditor
cannot attend to this clerical work and you
also know tbat wo do not have the time to
chock up and report on all of the matters
that pans through our hands. The truth of
the matter is , ttiat I can't ' do this any more
than I can take a ladder and climb to
heaven. "
Corrigan got the floor and upbraided Ber
lin for stating that the only Americans on
thu board had been discharged. He con
tinued In this strain until Berlin remarked ,
"You'd better go and sober up. "
Things were becoming Interesting as the
two members walked toward the center of
the room , whllo the crowd pressed close to
the panjuotrail.
O'JCccfo pounded a hole in Ids desk while
ho loudly qalled for order. It was tome thno
before order was restored , but at last quiet
was restored and O'Kcofu's ' resolution was
adopted , Berlin voting "no. "
Berlin moved that the chair appoint n com
mittee of three to muko arrangements for
now court rooms to accommodate the re
cently appointed judges. On this cominittoo
O'Kcofo appointed Berlin , Tlmmo and Cor
rigan , and instructed them to report at the
next meeting of the board.
