- LINCOLN , Neb. , March 17. [ Special Tclc-
/ ram to Tun Bnt : . ] There is to bo another
Several of the members of the house have
nado up their minds , that the charges of
bribery and soliciting bribes In con
nection with the insurance bills are getting
altogether to thick , and Inasmuch as there
tire several aflldavlts In existence regarding
the manner in which certain members have
approached Insurance men and demanded
money to influence their action on bills In
which the Insurance men are Interested , It
Is proposed to turn another committee loose
with full power to setm for .persons and
The bomb was fired just before adjourn
ment this evening , and the resolution calling
for the Investigation was adopted with a

The charge that Sheridan endeavored to
hold up a representative of an insurance
company will bo ono of the features invest- !
gated , and another to the effect that Kruse ,
chairman of the Insurance committee , de
manded money to report fmorably on house
Toll No. ) . > ( ' , an anti-rebate bill , will also bo
thrown under the rays of the search light.
The story Is that Kruso named his price , and
the proposition being favor.ibly received ,
agreed to see that , the report was favorable
to the passage of the bill. It is further
mated that the money was not forthcoming ,
and an unfavorable report was submitted.
Aflldavlts have been secured that will make
some mighty interesting- reading when they
are given to the public , and will also prove
in oye-cpcner to the investigating committee
when it gets down to business.
Held Iliu-k hy Krusc.
The IIOUBO committee on cities and towns
would have submitted a favorable report on
the Omaha charter bill this evening but for
ono thing , and that was the oppo-
tdtlon of Kruse , who is a member
of the committee. Ho suddenly
evinced an inclination to go through the
bill very carefully , anil insisto I tint Inas
much as there were .sovcr.il interests In
volved , p.iving , Board of Public. Works , aivl
things of that kind , the bill must bo consid
ered by sections In the committee. This was
very much of a disappointment to the Doug
las county delegation , the mcmbsrs of whl.-h
were assured , if they could a reo upon the
nrittcr , the sommlttoa would report ns ro-
questcd , The other members of the commit
tee were willing to do as had beau previously
agreed upon , but ICrus" w.is relentless , tinl
the report had to bo doforro.l. Tnit Is why
nothing was hear. ! in the house on this point
tonight bafo > adjournment.

f * * H member of the Douglas delegation ,
diss was present this evening. The resolu-
| > Uon calling for an Investigation on the Insur-
suieg company matter had been prepared be-
fcro that time , an.l was oven then waiting
for introduction , but as it was not publicly
hoard of until afterward , ICruso assumed to
bcllovo that It was introduce I for the purpose -
pose of driving him Into line on the question
of the Omaha charter. Sumo of his friends
luado assertions of this kind this evening , and
this ! s ono of the reasons that they are arguing
why Goss should not bo allowed to bo _ the
chairman of the invo.stig.itin ? committee.
This appointment Is bnlng fought , nirl a des-
Derate effort Is being made to secure "ho ap-
polntmcnt of a committee that will not go to
the bottom of the matters and will return a
whitewashing report. ICruso held u confer
ence with Goss at the LIndell this evening
to ascertain why the investigating resolution
was Introduced. lie was told that the rojo-
lutlon was Introduced In good faith and that
if Goss was placed nn the committee ha
would do his duty without feuor favor , and
t\at ) \ if there was anything behind the
charges It would bo dlsulosoi If U lay within
the Dower of the committee to get at It.
ICruso Immediately made a straight shoot
for the room of Speaker G.itlln , and an indo-
poudent who witness ad the opor.illon ox-
preened the belief th-.it It was for the purpose
of trying to Indueuco the appointment of the
eoiimltteo and to keep (5oss oil of it.
Whether or not ICruso Is trying to effect that
end , certain It Is tint snmo of his frioiUs are
working for that very thing.

squarely by the statement made In the
presence of Tuc Br.u represfntattvD regard
ing the efforts of Sheridan to secure a price
on the Insurance bill , and publicly assorted
the truth of It this evening In tlio pres
ence of a number of prominent gen
tlemen. Ho makes a clear and concise
statement of the matter , and a number of )
hi.s friends have interested , themselves In
the case , and propose to sec It pushed
through In the end.
The ro.suUitlmi Intro luoed this afternoon
names only lumsh roll No.'JS7 , but as there are
two other bills , Xos. ! IVJ and WJ , mid there
was moro skullduggery practiced nn them
than on tlm other , it is probable that the
resolution will bo amended in the morning '
10 as to include all of them. 'gk
A llttlo incident that occurred In the cloak
room yesterday may not bo out of place
hero. Ueforn the attempt was made to re
consider the Omaha club bill , a canvass was
made among the members and tdxty-sovcn
of thorn promlseii to support the move.
Among the number was Kruso. but when
the inero was made ho was the tlrst to niiso
a point of order , and largely owing to his
objection , tly > effort was unsuccessful. Soun
afterward hruse was In the barbm- chair In
the cloaU room when ono of the members ot
the Douulasdeleiratliw happened along and
iiroreedcd to tell ICruso what he thought of
ICruso stood it for a short time and when
ho thouL'ht that the opinion expressed was
too uncomplimentary ho remarked :
"I'll see you when I get out of this chair. "
"I don't want to see you or talk with you
either , " as the retort of the Omaha man.
"All the trouble with you on lint bill was
that you was not M-OII before it c.uno up. If
you ij..d 'icon ' you would not have rU c-l any
objection to It. " iyat

WASIIISOTOX , D. C. , Aluroh IT. The llrst
of Iho reorganized committees of the senate
to get to work was that on privileges and
elections , which held a session this morning.
The only cases discussed and that , too , in
an informal manner were those of Air.
Alantlo nnd Air. Bcckwltn appointed by the
governors of Montana and Wyoming , rcspcc-
Both of the men came to the senate bearIng -
Ing certificates of appointment signed by the
governors of their states. The question before -
fore the committee was whether , It being
the beginning of n full term and the legis
lature having refused to elect , the certifi
cates were valid , and whether the governor
was authorized to appoint under that clause
of the constitution which says , "If vacancies
huupen by reason of resignation or other
wise , during the recess of the legislature of
any state , the executive thereof may make
temporary appointments until the next
meetlne of the legislature , which shall then
1111 such vacancy. "
.Mr. Allrn's Cnso ,
The conditions In the case of Air. Allen of
Washington , whoso credentials have not yet
arrived , are somewhat different. When the
term of his predecessor expired the legisla
ture was still In session and did not adjourn
until the 10th of March. There was n va
cancy In this case which it could have filled ,
but did not , and after the legislature ad
journed the appointment was made. In the
other cases , the law required the legislature
to anticipate the known vacancy nnd elect.
The result appears to bo the same in all
three cases , and it is probable that It will bo
considered from the same basis.
Tlio committee is divided on the question ,
and the division is not drawn according to
party lines. Tliero will probably bo a ma
jority and minority report , und tills , it is
thought : , will be cause for a protracted do-
b.ite , with the end in view of finally estab
lishing a precedent that shall bo the law of
the senate. As the cases In question como
before the senate , the present phase of the
case has never been met by that body , and
the desire of both sides seems to be to dis
pose 1 of such eases in a way that will give
something certain for the future.
SfSI The committee will meet Alonday and the
senators-elect will bo permitted to come be
fore them and make such statements as they
may see fit.

WASUINOTOX , D. C. , Alarch 17. Senator
Teller was today asked for his opinion re
specting the declaration of the chancellor of
the exchequer in the House of Commons
that the British delegates would bo Instructed -
structed to op ] > ese every biinetnlllst scheme
presented at the monetary conference. The
senator said the declaration meant that
Great Britain would absolutely oppose free
coinage of silver on terms of equality with
gold. That was what she had always done ,
and nobody expected her to do any moro ufc
this time , but there was nothing In this posi
tion irreconcilable with the attainment of
the object of the conference , namely , the ex
tended use of silver as a money metal. In
fact this was evidence to show that Great
Britain really desired to do something In
that direction. Her financiers realized tlio
necessity for some palliative measure and
something to prevent the further deprecia
tion of silver , which , if continued , must re
sult In the total destruction of the present
monetary system. If that occurred the future
of silver would bo assured , but nobody
wished to adopt such a heroic meusiiro to
achieve the desired result. Ho had no doubt
that England would bo willing to support a
reasonable proposition that was more prac
ticable than the Rothschild scheme.

Jtvpiihllu The Closing
PAHH , .March 17. Jules Francois Camlllo
Ferry , the celebrated statesman , Is dead.
AI. Ferry's death was caused by heart dis
ease. The affection of the heart from which
10 suffered was duo to the effects of a bullet
striking a rib near tha base of the hc.irt at
the time ho was attacked by Aubertin in
.837. He was seized with spisms early in
.he morning and despite every effort made
> y the physicians , who were hastily sum- j
violence until at li o'clock In the evening he
expired In a terribly severe spasm.
Ferry was born April 13. 18 2. Ho studied
law und later became a Journalist. Ho was
elected to the corps lej-islatlf in 1800 and
was among the opponents of the war with
Prussia. When war was declared ho was
made a member of the government of the
national defense and was appointed
secretary of the government. lie risked
is life to suppress the commune.
At the election of February N , 1871 , ho was
elected ono of the representatives of the de
partment of the Vosges , and thereupon ho
resigned his functions as a member of the
Government of the Defense and administra
tor of the Department of the Seine , although
lie retained the latter ollleo provisionally
until the ISth of Alarch. After
the sx'ond siege and the entry of
the troops into Paris , AI. Tillers nominated
him prefect of the Seine , but the appoint
ment gave rise to so much hostile criticism
AI. Ferry resigned after ten days. Subse
quently it was understood that AI. Ferry
would bo sent as ambassador to Washington ,
but the proposed appointment was so unpop
ular that it was never ofllciully announced.
He was , however , sent ns minister to
Athens. After holding that appoint
ment fora year ho resigned It , and resumed
his place in the ranks of the republican left ,
of which ho became president. Ho wa
elected a member of the council-general of
the Yosges in 1871 , and for some time
ho was president of that bo.ly.
After the resignation of Alarshal AlacAIahon
( January HO , 18ii ! ) , AI. Ferry was appointed
by the new president , AI. Grovy , to a scat in
his cabinet as minister of public instruction
and line arts. Differences arose when AI.
Ferry brought forward his education bill , the
seventh clause of which prohibited mem
bers -unauthorized religions communities"
( meaning especially tlio Jesuits ) from teach-
in1 ? or managing schools. The measure was
carried by a largo majority of the Chamber
of Deputies but in the Senate a strong party
succeeded In throwing out the clause
in question. The minlstcry pocecdod , how
ever , to effect its purpose by decrees founded
on laws that had fallen into disuse , and the
prescription of the order was proclaimed.
The expulsion of tlio Jesuits was curried out ,
but three cabinet ministers resigned because
the decrees were not being enforced against
the other unauthorized organizations. These
secessions upset tlio mtnlstr.v ( September 111 ,
18S ( ) ) . After some delay Al. Ferry farmed a
cabinet and the decrees against the orders
were then carried out. On Novem
ber 10 , 1831AI. . Ferry's ministry resigned
In February. 18 * ' , however , after the f.ill
of the Fallleres administration. AI. Ferry
WUB sent for by the president of the republic
to form a new ministry. This he did , ho
himself becoming premier and minister of
public instruction. As such , leaving the
religious question to settle itself ,
AI. Ferry started upon a policy of
"colonial expansion , " and under
took the invasion of Tonquin. The vast
cost'and the unsatisfactory issue of this
invasion were in duo timu fatal to him ; he
was charged with having fallen into a trap
laid by Bismarck , with weakening Franco
and with belonging to a syndicate jvhlch
made money out of his adventures. Ilo was
suddenly overthrown by a vote of the Cham
ber (1884) ( ) and was never able to recover his
Closing Scene" .
Alme. Ferry said In an interview with a
reporter this evening : "For the last two
weeks AI. Ferry had complained of difficulty
in breathing. Ho would start up In the
night occasionally , gasping and choking.
Several times he left the table and hurried
to a window to get fresh air. His sleep was
much broken and his general health suffered
in consequence. Ho i luwcd an unusual lack
of energy and an aversion to going
out , except when his ofllcial duties
culled him. 1 almost forced him to
drive for a little while every pleas
ant morning und evening. In the last
few duys ho seemed to recover somewhat
his former energy and spirits , although his
difficulty in breathing was increasing and
last evening ho was determined to go to
Senator Loirrer's ball. Eventually 1 per
suaded him to remain nt homo. I knew that
to remain In u crowded ball room would ag-
gruvutfi his trouble , and , although ho said
ho felt better than ut any time in the last
week , ho admitted t'.ut his health needed
careful nursing if he was not to be disabled
for his public duties
Ho went to bed at < i o'clock. Before mid
night he woke with a chill. Ho fell asleep
again , but rested uneasily , finally awakening
in another chill moro severe than the first
one. I sent for the doctor at once. Ho nr
rived at 1 o'clock and immediately gave AI.
Ferry Injections of morphine and ether. Ho
also applied cupping glasses. This treat
ment was continued until 5 o'clock , when AI.
Ferry felt relieved and foil into u sound
sleep. He slept well until 9 o'clock. Other
physicians were then summoned for a con-
sultntion. As AI.
Ferry wished to gu't up
they did not insist upon his remaining in
bed , although they forbade him to
leave the bedroom and his study ,
which adjoins it. Ho was partly
dressed at 9M : ! ) and wo helped him to his
sturdy arm chair. Ho remained in it for an
hour in a condition of such extreme prostra
tion that ho could talk but little. At W'M :
ho brain struggling for breath. Ho sprang
from his chair with sudden energy and paced
the room , calling for air and complaining
that ho was suffocating.
When the Knil Oil-ne ,
This sudden rally was followed by another
sinkini ; turn. AI. Ferry lay In his chair
with his eyes closed , too weak to speak with
his wife or his brother , Charles. Shortly
after noon ho again called repeatedly for air ,
loft his chair and walked rapidly up
and down the room. This effort was
followed by a sinking spell. These
alterations of rallying and sinking
continued until fi o'clock , when ho raised
himself In his scat , looked ut his wife fixedly ,
exclaimed , ' -Save mo , " and fell bacu ex
hausted. His strugirlo for breath became
agonizing and the physicians Injected mor
phine to relieve him. After a few unintelligi
ble words he fell into a state of coma , which
ended In death. Ho died In the arm chair In
which , for years , ho hud done all his writing
and reading. All the members of his family
and Almo. Flouquct were beside him to the
last. Hb lust few minutes apparently were

Last week Ai. Ferry resigned the presl

ci itlon that ho might devote himself entirely > l
to his duties in the Senate. The general
feeling is that although his election to the
Senate was contrary to the wishes of
M.Carnot and AI. Itibot , his death
n serious loss to the government. In the
case of another cabinet crisis , he , in his oft- !
clul capacity , would have been the llrst man
to whom M. Curnot would have been bound
to turn for advice. It was with such an
event in view that AI. Ferry's supporters lit
the Senate compelled his election In the
room of Al. LolJoyer , who was believed to
lack the qualltlcatlons necessary for such a
part In the next crisis. With AI. Curnot ns
president , Al. Hlbot us premier , M. Casiinlr-
Perier ns president of the Chamber of Depu
ties and At. Ferry as president of the Senate
the opportunists felt that they had four of
the strongest men In positions to meet the
perilous consequences of the Panama ex
posure. As yet the names of possible suc
cessors to the presidency of the Senate have
been hardly mentioned.

Ferry : "Ho intended to run for the presi

was averse to the alliance with Hussta and

Sandoval. the professional revolutionist who

him that ho was to bo arrested by the

asylum , In the Yenc/uclan legation was ap-
larently not recognized , for ho was arrested

sails from Colon to New York.
Sandoval Is more than Indignant over his
irrest. Ho made a vigorous protest against
ho action of the Colombian government nnd
leclared that It would cause the discontlnu-
inco ' of diplomatic relations between Colom-
ila and Venezuela. Sandoval claims to have

Peru , who is now In the city as the guest of.
the Kqtiadorean consul. Pierola is waiting
for an opportunity to enter Peru and begin n
revolution to again place himself at the hcaU

Sandoval , it is said , was ready to make a.
contract with Pierola to furnish arms for
