LINCOLN , Neb. , March 7. [ Special Tele
gram to Tin : BEE. ] Governor Crounso this
afternoon appointed Dr. .1. T. Hayes as
superintendent of the Stale Insane asylum
fit Ihln cliy lo succeed Superintendent Bow
man , appointed by Governor Boyd nearly a
year ago. Ur. Hayes was for fourteen years
llrst assistant physician of the asylum and
brings to the superititcmlency the benefits of
two decades of experience and study. Ho
has for years been recognized as one of the
leading experts on Insanity In the country
and his service has bien frequently called In
In Important legal eases. Ho received the
endorsements of all Iho superintendents
under whom ho has served and many of Iho
prominent Insanity expcits In the country.
His appointment Iris boon received with
many congratulallons from his friends In
this and other elites.
Not Itciidy to Itrport.
The report of the joint committee ap
pointed early in the session to investigate
the alleged Inhuman treatment of convicts
al the state penitentiary , did not make- its
report today , as was expected. Ono or two
members of the committee- are not entirely
satisfied with the report as it stands , and
will visit the penitentiary tomorrow to sat
isfy themselves upon several disputed points.
The senate loday authorized the .lieuten
ant governor to appoint an investigating
committee of nine members. Up to this
evening that ofllcial hud made no Indication
of the probable make-up of the committee.
The arrangements have been completed
for Iho Irlp Ihc sunaio proposes to make to
Chicago. The senators who have been in
duced lo accompany Iho party will leave
Lincoln Friday al ! J-IO : p. in. and will return
Tuesday morning. Enough of iho scnalors
have agreed lo go lo secure an adjournment
of the senate from Friday until Tuesday , and
the party will be supplied with a special
Additional .Money for tlio I'ulr.
The house this afternoon passed the
World's fair bill appropriating 3 i,030 for
completing the state exhibit in addition lethe
the amount unexpended by the old commis
sion. The bill was passed without the
emergency clause , a fact which Is considera
ble of n disappointment to Its friends , as the
appropriation will not bo available until
July 1 , and at the same time the old coin-
mission to which so much objection has been
made during tlio . progress of the bill
through the house will remain in
charge of the work until the great
exhibition Is practically half over. A strong
effort will bo made to pass the bill through I
the senate ) with the emergency clause and
' llio friends of the measure assert tonight
that If the bill comes back to them with the
much desired clause added they will have no
dlfllculty In gelling Iho house lo concur.
Who Will Ho ilriid.
Now that the World's fair bill has passed
the house and is reasonably curtain to pass
the scnalc , the contest for the appointment
of director general is likely lo add itself to
the complexities in the oillco of the chief ex
ecutive. It is stated on good uuthorlty lhal
n delegation of the members of the house
waited upon the governor Mils forenoon and
urged him lo give them some Intimation us
to whether or not ho would appoint Joseph
Garneau , jr. . to thu position , The same
authority stales that the governor Informed
them emphatically that he would not ap
point Mr. Gnrncau. Acting upon the suggestion -
gestion of Governor Crounso there is a mani
fest disposition tonight to prepare a Joint
resolution to pass ootli branches of iho legis-
lalurc , urging the governor to appoint Hob-
crl W. Furnas to the position , and at Iho
same tlmo requesting that gentleman lo
lake the place If II is offered him.
There Is no question of the temper of Iho
members of the legislature on this maltcr.
Pumas would undoubtedly bo their unani
mous choice If ho could bo Induced to accept
the place. It Is understood , however , that
ho Is exceedingly nver o to assuming Iho
many rcsK | > nsit > lllllcs of Iho place , and will
only do so upon the most urgent appeals of
( liiriieuu HIM I'rlenils.
On the other hand Mr. Garneau has many
friends who will spare no efforts to secure
Ills retention In the place which ho has tilled
p. for nearly a year. They claim that ho Is the
iKr only man \yho can take up the uncompleted
ISP work of the
commission and carry out the
B many plans already laid.
A majority of the members of the Omaha
city council are in Lincoln tonight.Thcv
came down from Omaha this evening with
the understanding thai thu charter bill was
to come up for consideration in iho sonalo ,
but after arriving hero they Had that they
hud been misled In the date.

N , N. J. , March 7. Mr. Hutchlnson
In iho assembly today presented the memorial
of Iho committee ol fifty , which was ap
pointed at the mass meeting of the Citizens
league In Trenton last Wednesday. In ac
cordance with the memorial ho offered a
resolution providing for a public hearing nt
l3 ! : > ) 'Jp. in. upon the memorial which pro
tested solemnly against the race track bills
and asked for their repeal.
A half dozen members sprang lo their feet
to make motions , but-Speaker Fllnn ( the
Gloucester race track starter ) , shut them off
by declaring Iho resolution out of order. The
galleries and floor were crowded and Iho
ruling caused a great sonsalion.
"Upon what ground is this resolution de
clared out of orderf" asked Mr. Hutchlnson.
"Upon the ground that it Is unprece
dented , " said the speaker.
Mr. Hulchlnson quoted precedents and
then launched oul on an eloquent speech ,
denouncing with emphasis the outrageous
character of the ruling and Ihe danger of It.
Such a ruling , ho said , in years gone by
would hare- created a revolution. Ho re
ferred to iho speaker's denial lo giro iho
people a hearing , and the spectators broke
out Into applause and cheers.
The speaker said that if the demonstra
tions were repeated ho would order the spec
tators to be removed. The legislature , ho
added , would not bo influenced by outside
Mr. Lana also made a strong speech
against Iho speaker's ruling.
The speaker said iho people had gene
about the mailer of obtaining a hearing the
wrong way. The proper course was to
apply to the committee which had the bill In
Mr. Hutchlnson said thai would bo a farce.
The committee- had repeatedly denied a
hearing to tno public.
The speaker persisted In his ruling that
the resolution was out of order , and Mr.
Ilutchinsoh appealed from the decision.
The nays and yeas were called on the
question : "Shall the speaker's decision
stand as the decision of the house ? "
There- were twenty-three votes to sustain
the appeal and twenty-three against , but Iho
speaker refused to allow the result to bo an
nounced becansp Mr. Swartwout was absent.
The house was under n call and the speaker
ruled that the roll call could not bo sus
pended until all the members who had not
been excused had voted.
Mr. Byrne said ho had been informed that
the committee on municipal corporations was
ready to giro n hearing to the Citizens league
and ho therefore changed his vote , going on
the record as in favor of the appeal. Other
changes were recorded , and the clerk con
tinued to call Mr. Swartwout. Ilo was the
only absentee not excused. The speaker
would entertain no motion directing the sor-
gonnt-at-arms to produce Mr. Swartwout
and overruled every motion and resolution
as J ] out of order. Lobbying on the lloor was
allowed despite appeals for Iho enforcement
of Ihc rules against it.
AboTangies then changed his vote , the
record now standing U7 In favor of the
speaker and 2 ! ) i.n favor of the appeal.
When Mr. Swartwout made his appear
ance ho voted in favor of the speaker's rul
ing. Being informed that under the rules ho
could not vote , however , ho consented to
have his vote stricken out , and the total
vote then stood 'JO to 20. The speaker then
declared the motion appealing from his de
cision lost and a recess was taken.
The house commitlccon municipal corpora-
lions this afternoon heard the committee of
llfty on the racing report. 'Strong speeches
were made by prominent men against the
President Cluvuliind Interested.
Niw YOHK , March 7. A special from Tren l-
ton , N. J. , says : President Cleveland has
said a word about the race Irack bill. At
least the story comes straight from Wash
ington that within forty-eight hours the
president informed some of the Now Jersey
democratic leaders that ho was disgusted at
the condition of affairs in ono perpetually
democratic state in the north. It is stated
thai Mr. Cleveland decided lo keep every re i-
publican in ofllco rather than recognize dem ii
ocratic applications endorsed by Iho gam ii
bling clement. There are reasons for be
lieving this story to bo at least partially
true. The condition of the bosses when they

I'OWER OP UXirjill STATES COVltTS ,
Governor Stone of Mlsxourl HUH Few
AVordft to Sny an Tint Snhjcet.
r , Mo. , March 7. Since Fri
day last , when Judge Phillips of the United
Stales dlslrlcl court for the western dis
trict of Missouri , announced his decision in
the case of iho St. Glair county Judges Im
prisoned for refusing to lory n tax for the
payment of bonds Issued In behalf of rail
roads never built. Governor Stone has been
giving the points of the case some close at
tention. Ho dented there is any personal
controversy between Judge Phillips and
himself , lie says :
"I presume Iho people of the slate could
abolish county courts altogether if they saw
proper lo do so without llrst asking leave of
bondholders or federal Judges , though I may
bo guilty of inciting treason in the saying of
It. I suppose the people of iho state if ihoy
abolish county courts altogether could not bo
compelled by mandamus or otherwise to con-
tlnuo to elect comity Judges for the civic cir
cuit. I suppose the people of the state , if
they so desire , could adopt a legislative pol 1-
icy malting it the duty of the general ns-
scmoly to meet annually and when in ses
sion by some Joint action , with the approval :
of the governor , to levy both state and
county taxes. "
Referring to iho federal court the porcrnor
says : "Tho federal circuit court is semi-
foreign to the state. The circuit Judges arc
rarely citizens of the state whoso laws they :
sol al dcilancc. The states have no control
over them. They have no special concern J
or Interest In the state governments. They ,
hold life ofllco and draw their salaries from
the federal government. They are In ino
measure- separated from the stato. They belong -
long In a peculiar sense to the United States.
They grow in the Importance- that concep
tlon. The general government is magnified
and the state government dwarfed in their
thought. They are apt to fnrco their
measures and pursue a policy without much ;
regard to local interests or the rights of iho
"They cry slnco they have no machinery
of their own , they must of necessity imprison
the ministerial oftlc'ors of iho stale , so they
say , or else their judgments are not effective.
Very good ; ihen go back lo Iho old rule
which prevailed In the boiler days of iho
republic , when Iho splrll as well as iho er
of the constitution wasobserrcd , and in
state soverclgnlty sovereign within Its
proper sphere was something moro than Isa
shallow pretense or u mocking dream. Do
thai an'i these hateful and menacing con
flicts in Jurisdiction will disappear.
" 1 am quite sure the Just rights of the
eltUciH are as safe In iho hands of the state
as of the federal judiciary , I think Judge
Phillips was equally as Just as a Judge when
ho sat as nn appolhuo judge al Kansas City
ns h Is now while adorning the bench of the
federal district court. Hence , I regret that
he has seen the Insult which a justice of the
suproino court leveled at the. state Judiciary
in the case of Oehpeko against the rlty of
Dubuque when ho said '
, : 'Wo shall never
Imitate their insult of the law , because a
slate tribunal tins erected the altar and
decreed the sacrifice. '
"Associate General Miller. , that grand old
man on the bench , resented the Insult at the
time ns I do now.
"Stato tribunal , Indeed ! Since when and
by whom were the federal courts made the
special guardians of'the rights of the people
ple ) I think it s.ifti'to say that courts hold
ing such contemptuous views of stuto author
ity are dangerous tribunals to clothe wltti
power to override 'nnd ' destroy that au-
Uiorliy. " >

March 7. [ Uy Mexican Cable to the Now
t'ork Herald Special to Tun BEE. ] Two
revolutions are now destroying the tranquil
ly of Honduras. Two revolutionary armies
re about to engage in battle for supremacy ,
i'wo rivals for the presidency stand
ready to seize the government which Poucl-
ino Lclva. the lawfully elected executive ,
vas forced to abdicate.
1 have Just received the news from Ama-
iala , Honduras , that General Yasqucz ,
ntnlsterof war under President Loira , Is
he leader of the revolution which Is to rival
, he ono started at Choluteca by Pollcorpo
General Vasquez struck a moro effective
> low against the executive than did Bonilla ,
tlthoagh iho lallcr started his revolution
vllh a brilliant victory on the plaza at Clio-
uleca , an account of which I cabled to the
Icrald. While Bonllla , aided by General
L'errencla Sierra , was capturing Choluteca
ind preparing to march upon Tegucigalpa
for the purpose of proclaiming himself presi-
lent , General Vnsquez was dealing nn
ITectivc blow at the government which he
Jnlshcd by declaring himself dictator of the
General Vasqucz had well laid plans for
iolzlng the presidency. Only a few months
igo ho was made secretary of war by Gen-
iral Lelva. His iirst ofllcial act was the is
suing of an order for the reorganization of
the army. This reorganization appears now
, o have meant that the army was to bo used
to aid him in ousting President Leiva.
Captured tlio Army.
He issued an order for the conccntrallon
of iho divisions stationed In Santa Barbara ,
Lafaz , Intibuca , Gadias and Copau , in Coma-
yagua , where President Lclva , it was an
nounced , was to hold a review in March.
The news which I have received from
Anuifnla shows that Lelr.v was not per-
milled lo review Ihe iroops. When Vasqucz
had mobilized tin army of 7,000 men al
Comayagua ho revealed his real purpose by
forcing the abdication of President Lclva.
Having compelled Lcira to resign , Vasqucz
declared himself dictator , ifnd at once began
a march against Tegucigalpa at the head of
his army of 7,000 men.
It was rumored today that Tegucigalpa
had fallen Into the hands of General Sierra
Policorpo , Bontlla's chief of staff , and that
Bonllla had boon chosen president. Tele
graphic communication with Tegucigalpa is
Interrupted" I have not been able to
obtain a confirmation cr denial of the report.
From Santa Barbara , however * I have re-
eeived a dispatch which says that cx-PrcsI-
dent Bogran 6f Honduras , \vho was sue1
ceeded by Lclra , has announced that he will
support the cause of General Vnsqucz and
has sent a strong det.ichment to
reinforce his army. Meanwhile a dispatch -
patch from Corinto , Nicaragua , says
that the Nicaragua ! ! forces are being
mobilized on the northern frontier , but their
mission is not made public. In view , how
ever , of the early reports that Nicaragua
had promised to aid Bonllla it is not im
probable that the Nicaraguan troops will bo
sent into Honduras to reinforce Bonilln
should the army of Vnsquez prove too strong
for him to conquer.
Some Political Gossip.
A dispatch from Bogota says thai
ex-President Campo Serrano has been
appointed secretary of stale of
Colombia. Ospina Canmcho was
nt the sumo time appointed minister of Avar.
The former is an independent liberal and the
latlcr a moderate conservative. Favorable
comments on these selections are made by
Ihc leaders of all parlies.
The Peruvian government nns been ofll-
clally informed by the Bolivian minister that
Bolivia has no intent of forming an alliance
A dispatch from Quito says thai Chill will
soon have a first-class legation In Ecuador.
Melachlor Terrasas bus been appointed
minister from Bolivia to Washington. It is
reported thai President Arco of that repub
He , accompanied by his family , will visit the

had the best of It. Smith forced Harnoy
around the ring in the third , but every blow
ho delivered was returned with Interest , and
several times with improved interest.
