Senator Pope then called up his resolution
of yesterday congratulating the president

to a place in tbo cabinet and moved its adop
Senator Darner said that bo was sorry the
resolution had been presented to the sonato.
"I pondered this over all night , " said the
senator , "and I confess It disturbed my test.
1 cannot stultify myself by permitting this
resolution to pass without entering n solemn
protest. To thus endorse a man who would
go out of his way to maliciously slander
nioro than 70,000 people of this state would
bo to stultify the party I represent. I desire
to read from a speech delivered by this man
at Omaha on the IRth of last November and
after I read it no independent senator can
blame mo for taking the position I do. I
read this extract for the purpose ot throwing
back to him the stigma ho has cast against
70,000 people of this state. "
Darner then pulled a small scrap book
from his inside vest pocket and read a long
tract from Morton's speech , delivered at the
democratic jolllllcation in Omaha , at which
time the prospective secretary of agriculture
handled the populists with unsparing Invec
tive ,
Continuing , Darner said : "Now , Mr.
President , 1 want to say that a man belong
ing to the Independent party who will vote
for this resolution will stultify h's dignity
ns a senator of the state of Nebraska.1

Senate llio No. 41 , by Scott , was taken up.
It provides that a registrar of deeds shall bo

all railroads touching the same point In Ne
braska shall build and maintain transfer
switches for common use in transferring
freight from ono such railroad to another.
The bill was stubbornly contested from be
ginning to end.
Senator Pope moved that the bill bo re
committed to the committee on railroads
and that the representatives of the railroads
bo Invited to appear before the committee.
This motion was voted down and the op
ponents of the bill mustered all their argu
ments against it , while the senators on the
independent hide defended It with more
ability than they have displayed on any
previous debate.
Senator Stewart offered an amendment
providing that transfer switches shall be
built on the order of town boards In towns
Interested , but ho afterwards withdrew it.
Senator Dale offered an amendment

but he could muster but eight votes.

The committee then rose and recommended
that the bill do pass. The opponents of the
bill made a final effort to defeat It by mov
ing to table the motion to adopt tlio report of
the committee of the whole. The motion to
table was defeated , Senators Corroll , Ever
ett , Lobeck , Lowloy , McDonald , Miller and
Telit voting with the Independents. The

session was manifest In the house this mornc
ing before the body got down to business.

Watson called attention to thu fact that
the minutes did not show that the previous
question was put , and moved that they bo
amended so as to bo correct.
Barry hoped that the gentleman from Otoo
would not precipitate another fight , and in
order to avoid a controversy flatly contra
dicted Watson's statement by declaring that
no motion was put submitting the previous
Watson asked if it was not a fact that tha
republicans demanded it , and Curry ad
mitted that such was the case.
' 'Then lot the records show it , " said Wat
son , "as all the newspapers so state It. "
Stevens tried to make everything clear by
stating that the previous question was
ordered , but not put.
The speaker vouchsafed the information
that the statement that the previous ques
tion had been put was false.
The minutes were finally cobbled up to suit
the dissatisfied ones , and Stevens , by unani
mous consent , introduced the resolution concerning -
corning the north and south railroad which
was passed by the senate. It was adopted.
Hud Ills Suy Out.
The relief was short lived , however , as
something was burdening the mind of Mr.
Watson , and ho rose to a question of privi
lege on behalf of himself and forty-six
others. Ho wanted to prove to the house
that the position taken by him lust night
was the correct ono , and he had a number of
.authorities that ho wanted to read. Ho
"reeled off a few sections of Wilson's digest
to show that when a call for the previous
question was made and properly seconded
nothing further was necessary. Ho also had
a copy of Cushing unabridged and cited also
from the action of the national house of
Horst attempted to head off the Otoo
county statesman , but was unsuccessful ,
nnd Watson discoursed on the subject near
est his heart until ho was tired. When ho
considered his course sufficiently vindicated
ho sat down , and the house heaved a sigh of
relief nnd proceeded to business.
McKesson presented another municipal
suffrage petition , and Hall county was heard
from through a petition asking the defeat of

N'ewburry'a Famous Muature.
The Nowbcrry bill came in for considerable
attention , the committee recommending it
for passage after having had several amend
ments tacked off.
Porter thought that the general sentiment
of the people of the state called for n reduc
tion In freight rates of about a 20 pur cent.
Elder was opposed to rushing the bill
through , nnd thought it should take its regu
lar course ,
Felton wanted tho. proposed amendments
printed at onco. In order to let the bill como
in anead of others. ,
Elder evinced a consuming dcslro to have
all action on the bill strictly constitutional ,
and entered another protest against having
it railroaded through.
The amendments wore ordered printed ,
despite tha objections of the ox-speaker.

Oakley raised auothor breeze by demandIng -
Ing , ns a question of personal privilege , that
btovens state why ho objected to Oakley's
acting as clerk of committee on claims.
faUjvons sent up the rule providing that
the only time for raising such an objection
wasatttho tlmn the objectionable words
'vcre used and before any other business had
been transacted , and claimed that the reso
lution was out of order , inasmuch as several
days had pawed.
Oakley replied that thn. clerk had no rec
ord of the event , but desired to sUto that if
the gentleman from Funias desired to sneak
and skulk behind the rula ho would intcr-
pose uo objection.
Stevens overlooked the insinuation of
being a sneak , but the imputation of skulk
ing was too much for htn , and he demanded
that the clerk take notice of the word
"skulk. "
"I will give you somothlng moro to sliulk
about bo fore this session Is ended , " retorted
Oakley , who had waxed qulto wrathy.
No blood was spilled , nnd after waiting
long enough for the belligerents to make
further advances , had they been so disposed ,
Felton asked that the suno be taken
with one of his bills ns had been taken with
the railroad bill and that the amendments
bo printed before the bill was considered fli

IteHolutlons Knocked Out.
Sutton offered a resolution for a committee
of eight to bo appointed by the speaker , three
Irojn the independent party , tli-ee from the
republican party nnd two from the demo
cratic party , to visit the Union Stock Yard
company's plant and make a thorough in
vestigation of that institution. Tlio resolu
tion was ruled out of order.
Watson offered a resolution to the effect
that tha Joint resolution adopted by the
populists and .democrats declaring for free
coinage bo recalled from the senate.
Kruso raised the point of order that the
house could not recall a resolution or bill
after it had become the property of the
senate , and that as the time hud arrived for
the special order tbo resolution was out of
The chair ruled that as the hour had
arrived for special order the point of
order was well taken , 'inlcss by unanimous
consent the special order might bo delayed.
Watson moved that the special order of
the day bo passed without losing its place
until the resolution is acted upon. The
motion prevailed , receiving 5(5 ( votes.
Barry moved the previous question.
A motion to table was lost on a vote of 45
to 15. The resolution was submitted and
failed to carry on a vote of 48 to 4S. The re
publicans had succeeded in getting them
selves on record , however , and were satisfied.
Ovrr the StocK Yards.
The stock yards bill was then taken up as
the special order of the day , and a red hot
discussion was immediately on tap.
Sutton again crowded his resolution to the
front and endeavored to stave off considera
tion of the bill until a committee could bo
sent to South Omaha to look over the
ICesslor made a vigorous and logical
speech , in which he sot forth the situation
as it now confronts the stock raisers of the
state. Ho stated that the powerful stock
yards had employed the same tactics before
to defeat legislation along this line , and it
had been done successfully. Ho hoped that
the members would not again allow them
selves to bo led into such a trap. Ho said
that tlio solo object was to delay action. The
situation was dispassionately discussed by
the speaker , and the urgent need of the
stock yards legislation was clearly set forth.
Nason took the other side nnd asked to
have action deferred until the stock yards
company could submit facts for the informa
tion of the members.
AVmits Facts nrul Figures.
Elder also made a plea for delay , but felt
called upon before doing so to say that ho
was not there in the Interest of the stock
yards company. Ho said that "if" It was
the truth , as alleged that a co . , mny In Ne
braska had watered its stock.of.spveral mil
lions , and that "if" it was true that a com
pany charged more than was fair , ho wanted
to know it , and in order to know it ho wanted
thu stock yards cpmpany to bo allowed to
submit "llggors that air facts. "
Jensen insisted that a man who could go
to South Omaha and toll the real statoof
affairs in ono day was an export of the most
extraordinary kind. Ho behoved that every
member know what the situation was , and
Just how ho wanted to vote.
ICruso thought that the house had batter
let 'er go and make tha bill a special order
for Friday afternoon.
Barry declared that If this was .attempted
ho would demand a call of the house , as the
plan tp postpone was to catch the house at a
tlmo when several of the members would be
away , and ho did not propose to allow any
snap Judgmcnt-iu the matter. The opposi-
sltlon desisted for the time being and a mo
tion to recommend the bill for possagc re
ceived W votes.
The committee immediately rose and sub
mitted its report. Jensen moved , the adop
tion of the report and Nasou amended with
a motion not to concur ,

Elder offered a substitute recommitting
the bill to the committee until Friday after
noon ut U o'clock. The substitute received
llfty.four votes and the agony was over for
the tlmo being.

In the alcove at the rear of the hall the
Seventh Ward -band of eighteen pieces was
csconced behind a bank of ferns and smilux
and enlivened the courses with strains of
music that blended harmoniously ivith
the spirit of the scono. The long
tables were arrayed with intertwining
streamers of.smllax with hero and there a
bun.'h of fragrant roses , and beside each
plato was the customary boutonniere of hot
house flowers.
Divine grace was asked by Uov. T. E.
Cramblet , and then a menu of choice viands
occupied the exclusive attention of the com-
. After tho. coffee and cigars President
.oodcr called the banqueters to order , nnd
said :
I'rcslilcnt Ilooder'H Welcome.
"Tho pleasant duty devolves on mo to
bid you a hearty welcome to thisl our
second annual banquet. Rejoicing in
increasing membership and overflow

see a representative gathering of our best
business men. I may say without contra

"I am reminded tonight of a scene which
occurred during the late rebellion. The two
armies wore encamped opposite each other.
The bands of tbo army of the north played
the 'Star Spangled Banner , ' and these of
the south played 'Dixie. ' Then the northern
music was changed to 'Home , Sweet Homo , '
and in a moment the southerners had joined
In the strain. Then all hearts beat in uni
son , as ours do tonight. AVe tire all working
for the benefit and protection of the homo
and the loved ones on which depends the
happiness of all. "

president's address had subsided , the secre

Governor Crounso and Lieutenant Gov
ernor Majors wore unablu tobo present , and
Mayor Bemis was introduced to respond to
"Omaha. "
Omaliu unit 1.1ft ] Insurance.
The mayor began his address with a brief
review of Omaha's remarkable growth and
progress from the Indian's tepeu in 18.1G to
its population of HO.OOO in 1890. After tell
ing. In a spirit of prophecy , what its future
achievements will bo , ho turned to the in
surance men and their interest in the great
lrf ° ' J
inland city. ,
"Tho Increase Intho rowthand prosperity
of Omaha , " ho sala/"Vhcans nn increase in
the business of life' insurance , for who over
know of a life insurhlico man who did not
take advantage of < roHT opportunity to in
crease his business ? 'The ' advent of 850,000
people , which Omab'ji'is bound to witness before -
fore the close ofjtms century , will afford
them a Held whluh , ' It is unnecessary
to suy , they wilt-'work to its full limit.
I will not unflor'tako to quota sta
tistics to show AfTiat percentage of
these ! 150,000 people will probably be written ,
because you know niohj about that than I
tlo , but my only purntiSjJ Is to give you fair
warning of what ttfttcfcct , so that you may
clear the decks for action.
"Llfo insurancd ' 'tins done much for
Omaha. Thousands tnd tens of thousands
of dollars are dividirtiHp every year among
the widows and orpjia/fs / , placing them beyond
yond the reach of poverty and degradation ,
making them hotter men and women.
' Most of. the largo loans upon our finest
buildings are placed there by life insurance
companies. Ono of the llnest bnlldlngs In
our city , the Now York Life , was erected by
an Insurance company ,
"Tho life insurance agents are among our
most prominent and Influential citizens. All
of them are wealthy and some of them are
millionaires. They have the material prosper
ity of the city at heart ; they raise largo fam
ilies of children to swell the census ; uul spend
money lavishly. I believe , If the matter was
mentioned wo might got them to buy or
build for us water works , canals for ixiwer ,
gas and elcctrlu plants , street railways , etc. ,
and give us a 8-cent fare on the street cars ,
low rates on gas fin n word , make of our
city an ideal Atlantis.
"I understand wo are Indebted ( I ) to the
life insurance companies for--thu Gould
regime of the Union Pacific. Through the
Intermarriage of Sidney Dillon's son or.
daughter with the son or daughter of the
president at the Equitable , Dillon and Gould
were able to use the Knuttnblo millions to
buy upn majority of the Union Paclllo stock
"riio-llfoliiMiraneu companies also own a
largo amount of our clty.lxmds , thereby en
abling us to carry on public Improvements ,
"These companies carry out , In a practical
manner , ono of the leading principles of the
communists in dividing up the millions and
billions of the world's wealth among the
l > oor and lowly In return for the payment of
mnall premiums annually to these giant
companies. Omaha has had , and will con-
tlnuo to have , a largo share of the wealth
thus distributed. Some of our citizens are
paying for from $100XX ) to $ .yxKX ) ( > of life In
surance. I am paying out nn-share of pre
miums on almost flOU.OOOof Insurance , but
our premiums will all come back In tlmo.
"Wo are not behind other cities in
having life Insurance companies of our own.
The Union Llfo Is an Omaha Institution , and
wo all wish it abundant success , and hope
to see it reach the proportions of Its giant
contemporaries. "
The mayor hero diverged from Insurance
matters to urge united and energetic effort
on the part of Omaha's friends to carve out
its rightful greatness , and In this connection
llred this shot at recent events :
' 'Wo must not allow ourselves to be
come narrow-minded , uncharitable or tin-
cliristlanllko nud make of Omaha
an asylum simply of fanatics who
would bring back to us the days of witch
craft , the days of bluo-bollied laws and theo
ries , * * * Wo must elevate the slums ,
christianize the unfortunates , stop for
nwhllo the building of great churches for
the rich and build Industrial schools and
temples of godliness in the slums. "
In closing the speaker said :
"It is usually customary for tlio mayor to
extend the freedom of the city to visitors ,
but In this case I think I need not ussuro
our friends that the town Is theirs , but to
all of you I extend a hearty welcome. If you
don't see what you want you have only to
whisper yuur desire to an Omaha man nnd
your wish shall bo granted. "
Witty Kitnlirook , iii : > ciiL'iit Tliurxtoii.
Mr. Henry D. Estabrook bad for his text
"Tho Lifo Insurance Agent. " Ho said that
in point of persuasion the lawyers yielded
the palm to the life Insurance- agents , Ho
presumed that his friend John Thurston
would admit this after Ills recent efforts at
persuasion. Ho atoned for his apparent
satire , however , by paying an eloquent
tribute to Mr. Thurston , which was received
with prolonged cheers.
The speaker continued that the logic of
the Hfo insurance agent was somewhat dif
ferent from that of the highwayman but it
was equally effective. The one said , "Your
money or your life , " the other , "Your
money for your life. "
Ho related at length his experience with
life Insurance and the narrative abounded in
mirth provoking bits which were greeted
with continual applause.
The "Past. Present nnd Future of Life
Insurance" was discussed by Hon. John
M. Thurston , who said that the past
of life Insurance represented a uow
investment for human effort , anew
now experience in human affairs ,
a means of Investment within the reach of
all. There were now comparatively few
men who were unable to arrange their affairs
in this world so that they could go out of it
leaving their wives and children a means of
support after their departure. Lifo insurance
represented an investment not for one's self ,
but for those who were near and dear to
The present of life insurance must bo
profitable , or why should all these able , en
ergetic men leave other avocations
to engage in the solicitation of
risks. The life insurance business of the
United States was in the hands of men of
the greatest capacity and ability and was
surrounded by all the safeguards with which
human ingenuity could envelope it. In the
last fifteen years nearly all sorts of invest
ments had shrunk from r to10 per cent.
The insurance investments alone remained
without a discount.
Continuing , Mr. Thurston took occasion to
compliment Mayor Bcmis and the city of
Omaha. No man over came west of the
Missouri river to live unless he had pluck ,
energy nnd enterprise , and the business-men
of the west were , as a rule , superior to
these in the charge of the same
interests in the c\st. : Ho concluded with
an expression of the pleasure which ho ex-
perlfcnced 'at being present at tl is and the
previous banquet of the association and
wished success to the fraternity in general
and to the Nebraska underwriters "in par
Practical ISpnoIItx of insurance.
"The Benefits of Lifo Insurance" was dis
cussed by Air. Edward Uosewater. Mr.
Hosowater said ho had perhaps as extended
tin experience with life insurance and
agents as any man in Omaha , as ho was
carrying $280,000 insurance on his own ac
count. With the exception of $ ! , ( > UO this was
placed with the old line companies , nud al
though the pecuniary benefits of his insur
ance were as yet invisible it had secured him
many a good night's sleep.
The investment in life insurance paid in a
business way , as it was so much security
that whatever happened to the individual
his family would bo protected , and the fact
that ha had tills amount secured
to his family at his death had
a tendency to improve his credit
during his lifetime. Mr. liosowater at
tributed a part of his own success in carry
ing on largo business enterprises with
a comparatively small capital to the fact
that his life was so heavily iusured , which
was a guarantee that no matter what might
occur to him his enterprises would bo suc
cessfully consummated and the labor of his
life would not bo wasted.
At the conclusion of Mr. Rosowatcr's ad
dress Prof. Herrmann was introduced and
amused the guests by a number of his in
imitable tricks , plucking glasses of spark
ling champagne from the pockets of the
gentlemen who sat at his elbow and making
a $5 bill In Mayor Bemls' hands change to

While the shooting was going on eight
shots were llred nnd a great number of people

hurried off to the lockup. At least 100 citi

started after the other men.
The murderer was locked up and the
prison was surrounded by a crowd of armed
men and threats of lynching were freely In

and the crowd disappeared.
But httlo can bo learned about the gam ?
