LINCOLN , Neb. , April 4. [ Special Tele
gram to THE Br.i : . ] Tlio railroad bill still
hojds the right of way and there Is llttlo
show for anything else until that is disposed
of and entirely out of the way. The house
can pursue the even tenor of its way , but
neither the impeachment matter nor any
thing else requiring concerted action on thu
part of the two houses can hope for consid
eration until the senate has finished its tus-
so ! with house roll 'l'J.
The friends of the bill In the upper house
give it out cold that tlie day of tcmpori/.ing
has passed and they propose to stay ri'jht
there and fight it out on this line if it takes
the remainder of the year. The reading of
the specifications and schedule portion of
the bill was completed shortly after i ) o'clock
tonight. This covers about SOO pages and
constitutes the major portion of it , us tlio
remainder , Including the senate amend
ments , co\er.s but about a do/on pages.

Obstrnctionary tactics , bushwhacking and
filibustering were then renewed In the hope ,
of course , of finally defeating the bill , but
how it is to bo accomplished is something as
yet nndlscernable to tlie uninitiated on the
outside. Republican members of the house
assert that the passage of tlio bill is inevi
table and express the opinion that the oppo
sition in tin1 senate is childish In view of tno
situation confronting the railroad crowd in
that body. North started in to talk iiunlnst
time as soon as.tbo reading was interrupted ,
and insisted that lie proposed to keep at it
ns long as biophysical endurance held out.
Minus his coat and cheered by the hcnmlm. '
approval of a large stun 1 lamp upon his
desk , ho carved paraliolas , tarantulas and
several other things in the atmosphere , and
unloaded talk in copious quantities. Tlio
nnti-blllers went to bed on cots set 11)1 ) on the
north side of the chamber and , wrapped In
flaming red quilts and the arms of Morpheus ,
paid no attention to what was golnir on
around them other than to punctuate with
sonorous dots and dashes the remarks of
their fellow-sufferer from Platte county.

Not a cot was to bo seen on the other side
of the hoiiKO where the supporters of the bill
remained intensely wide awake , although
they made themselves as comfortable as pos
sible in their tilting chairs. So far as facili
ties for a long Fcigo were concerned , the
opposition had decidedly the better of It , but
the supporters of the bill were backed by a
determination that promises more in the end
than fourteen cots ami feather pillows.
Itroko On * UcMidlficU.
Tlio senatorial deadlock was main
tained during the night and morning ,
terminating shortly after 12iO. : ! Nothing
occurred during the night or earlier hours of
tbo morning to break the dreary monotony
of the situation. Tlio waiting and watching
senators could only nmuso themselves by fol
lowing with sleepless eyes the slowly mov
ing hands of the big doc' : above the chair in
which tlio lieutenant governor or the presi
dent pro tern alternately dosed the
bom's away. Early morning twilight
found most of the dignified senators
occupying undignified positions in improvised
couches. Every few moments some one on
cither sldo of tlio chamber would move that
further proceedings under the call bo sus
pended. The wakeful senators on the oppo
site sldo would then hastily shako up the
drowsy members until the requisite number
of sleepy senators stood up to object.
Along toward 8 or 0 o'clock tlie senators
who had been released on parole
during the night had made their
appeal unco. Tlio quilts and blankets
were stowed away , breakfast was ordered ,
Chairs and -couches were pushed back to
places , and tbo card tables whlcn enabled
many of the se'nators to keep awake during
the night , were removed. Tlio senate
chamber once more resumed its normal ap

At in o'i lock the
turnol from Omaha with Senator Tefft.
When brought before the bar of tlio senate ,
the senator from Cass county explained that
he hud taken his invalid wife to Omaha , and
that yesterday she Ind submitted to n
dangeroiis surgical operation. Ho had re
mained away from the senate because he bo-
lloved that his duty was with his wife. Tno
senate unanimously voted to e.xcuso him for
his absence , and a few moments later bo
was given permission by unanimous consent
to return to Omaha on the afternoon train.
To Tin ; Hen representative Senator TciTt
stated that he only returned to Lincoln at
the earnest solicitation of his wife , who felt
willing and able to do without him until
Stt'wnrt Siiw u Srlirini' .
Shortly after 10 o'clock Stewart created
considerable of a stir by insisting that all
passes that had been given members of the
senate bo revoked. Ho asserted that it had
been arranged among the opponents of the
railroad hill to delay progress indefinitely by
maintaining the deadlock. Ho quoted ono
senator as saying that as soon as McDonald
returned another senator would bo sent
* Tlio lieutenant governor replied somewhat
sharply. Ho reminded the senator from
the senators who were holding passes had
given the chair their word of honor that
they would make the senate no trouble \ \ lien
they toinporarilyahscntcd themselves. How
ever , ho directed ttio doorkeeper to take up '
all passes and permit no ono to leave or
enter the senate chamber without unani
mous consent of the senate.
Hud u Niitplrlotu I.link.
At noon the deadlock was still on. The
only absentee was Senator McDonald , who
hud eluded the search of the sergeant-at-
nrins. A telegram was received from him
Jute yesterday afternoon bringing the in-
formation that ho would bo In Lincoln at 0
o'clock , but not specifying whether he meant
(1 ( o'clock last evening or this morning. The
long continued nbscncc of the senator
from Thurston excited no llttlo comment ,
but tfio friends of the railroads were nearly
unanimous In expressing the opinion that ho
had been unavoidably detained and that ho
was not absenting himself through any de
sire to delay progress In the consideration of
the railroad bill.
Any further discussion of the reasons for
the senator's absence was cut short at 1U0 : ! !
by the appearance of the si-rgoant-at-arms
with the long-delayed absentee at his
elbow. Senator McDonald carried n
small vallso In his hand , . hud
his overcoat thrown over his arm and
ho appeared to bo considerably llustratod.

When presented tit the bar of the senate
ho 1 explained that his absence wes occasioned
by 1 circumstances over which he had no con
trol. 1I 1t t Ho was excused and further procced-
Inir I under the call wore dispensed with.

prearranged I program.
When Senator Ixwlcy's name was called
ho nroso and asked to be excused. Senators
1'opo and Halm objected , and when the
chair eructed the secretary to call the roll
on Ixnvloy's request to bo excused , it dawned
upon tho. Independent senatorial mind that
the ( same inextricable complications that
were so successfully brought , on ono evening
last week were to bo repeated.
CumiiltitlVH Hull Cullri Tried Asiiln
Harris raised the point of order that a
second roll call could not be ordered while a
former roll call was incomplete.
The chair held the point of order
not well taken and from this decision
Senator Harris appealed. Spe.ikmgupon the
appeal , Senator Harris stated that it was
plainly evident to everybody on the lloor of
the senate that the senator from Howard
had no valid 'reason for asking to be excused
from voting , but that it was plain to bo seen
that his only motive was to delay the
proceedings and by so doln ? defeat
legislation that could be defeated in no
other way. Ho sustained ills argument on
his point of order by reading from Jefferson's
Everett hoped that the matter would not
be pressed at this time. He was not , \ et pre
pared to vote to overrule the chair. Ho be
lieved the chair was conscientious in his rul
ings. Ho w.is willing to stand a reasonable
amount of this see-sawing , but when lie be
came satisfied that the opponents of the rail
ro.id bill were adopting dilatory tactics
simply for the purpose of delayii
a vote on the bill , lie would ,
much against Ills judgment , and with all
duo respect to the chair , vote to overrule his
I'iniilly Tliry Compromise1
Pope asked ills independent friends who
was responsible for the dilatory tactics pur
sued all last evening ?
-Dale retorted that the entire responsibility
lay with J'ope and his colleagues.
Pope replied with considerable warmth ,
and asserted that he himself had gone
to the independents last evening
with a proppsitton to take a recess
cess until this' morning. Ho called
attention to the fact that his colleagues had
all night pressed an agreement upon the
independent senators which the latter per
sistently declined to accept.
The whole matter was finally com
promised. Harris withdrew his appeal and
Lowloy his request to bo excused. Twenty-
six senators voted to take a recess until"
o'clock , and the deadlock , which had con
tinued for nineteen hours , was ended.
ItOKiiii Heading thu 111Itlll. .
When the senate was called to order this
afternoon the governor's message relative to
the penitentiary contract was read
to tlto senate. North moved the
message be referred to the committee of
the whole , but Dale wanted it sent to the
Judiciary committee. The latter motion pro-
vailed. The secretary then at twenty min
utes of II o'clock commenced the reading of
house roll No. ! ! ; ! .
There was no interruption until SrliO.
Then North , who had been calling the
senate's attention to several inaccuracies in
the printed bill , moved that the bill bo sent
back to the house enrolling committee for
President Pro Tcmporo Correll held that
the motion was out of order , but North
changed the form and moved tliat the bill bo
recommitted to the committee of the whole.
Fearing that an interminable discussion
might ensue Dale moved the previous ques
This had the effect to shut off any in
tended debate , and on roll call North's
motion to recommit was lost , seventeen sen
ators voting in the ni-gative.
Senator North , who followed the reading
of the bill very cls tly all the way through ,
was frequently on his fact to point out what
ho alleged wore mistakes in the printed bill.
Hut ho made no further dilatory motions
until ten 'minutes of fi , when ho ag.iin moved
that the bill bo recommitted. Ho alleged
there were many mistakes in the printed
bill , that none sf the senators could vote in
telligently on the bill. Ho closed by moving
the previous question.
( 'ori'Hl u I.It tin Mixed.
Harris and Stewart raised points of order
against the motion to recommit , but the
chair held them not well taken In each in
stance. A running conversational debate
followed , In whn.li Clarke , North , Mattes
and Graham participated. The independent
senators were all the time endeavoring to
shut oft the discussion by calling the chair's
attention to the fact that the previous ques
tion had been moved. The chair evidently
had mixed his parliamentary nik'3 , for ho
declared that the Inform il dis.Mssiou was in
order until the motion for tlie previous ques
tion had been stated by the chair.
Finally Senator Moore secured recognition
and made a somewhat extended argument in
favor of recommitting the bill. In the
course of his remarks ho made the assertion
that the bill contained provisions directly
opiwsed to the statutes of Nobr.is'.c-i an I the
interstate commerce act. The statement
evidently had no terrors for the friends of f
the 1)111. for alter the previous question had I
been ordered and the roll c.illod on North's
motion to recommit they voted it down by IT

The leading clerk proceeded , but a few
minutes later Graham moved a recess until ,
HI o'clock tomorrow. The Independents de '
manded the yeas and nays and before the
j ivll was completed Pope moved a call of the
house. This time the absentees provjd to :

Many of the senators believed that another J
all-night deadlock was ahead of them , but

April 4. [ By Mexican Cable to the Now
York Herald Special to Tun Br.D.1
News of the signal defeat of the government
troops near Tegucigalpa , Honduras , was re
ceived In this city late last night by mall.
This report was confirmed in advices brought
later by the officers of tlio steamer Harra-
couta who added the information that the
revolutionists had finally triumphed and that
Pollicarpo Bonilla had been proclaimed pro
visional president of tlie republic.
This news reached hero from Managua ,
Nicaragua , which is a hot bed of sympa
thizers of tlie revolutionists , and it is there
fore given with all due reserve. Tbo first
reports which reached here gave an account
of tremendous fighting near Tegucigalpa
which resulted favorably to the revolution
ists. Bonllla's forces were massed around
the cupltol. Strong detachments were hold
In reserve , while the main body of troops
were sent forward to attack the position
held by the government army which was defending -
fending the city under the command of Gen
General Terrcncin Sierra led the advance
upon the government position. His troops
imshcd forward with great bravery , but
heir assault was resisted with a courage
mid determination equal to their own. For
nero than two hours the battle raged with-
nit apparent advantage to cither. Then the
revolutionists decided upon u bolder
iml more decisive move. Their lines seemed
, o waver for n moment and then they dashed
orward in solid ranks. They fell upon the
overnmcnt army with terrific force and
battered It in a murderous fashion.
ItcsUlod to tlio I.nst.
General Vnsquez's troops resisted the on
slaught with great valor. For a few
moments it seemed as if they could beat
back the attacking columns , but'reserves
were brought forward and the dash against
the government troops became hotter than
before. With grim determination General
Vasquo/'s troops held their ground for a
short time. Then c.uno a vigorous dash
against the center of the government lines ,
"t was a daring and resistless assault.
The revolutionary troops broke through
the government lines in the center , cutting
the defending army into two forces and
spreading demoralisation and terror nmonir
the troops. From that moment the battle
was won forjBonilla's army. The govern
ment forces were completely routed and lied
; n all directions , but the victory had not
been won without deplorable cost. The lo
of the revolutionary troops was great , and
General Sierra , Uonilla's chief ot stuff , was
"limself bidly wounded. Bonilla's victorious
soldiers lost no time in pursuing the lleoing
The fugitives wore slaughtered without
mercy. Scores are reported to have been
killed while fleeing for safety. General
Vasqliez himself fled toward Villannero ,
"caving Bonill.t n clear road on which to
march to Tegucigalpa.
It is said that many of the irovernmcnt
soldiers who escaped from the vcnge.inco of
Honillas' troops went through the IMS
Angeles valley , where they committedimany
atrocities. Houses were pillaged , robbed
and women assaulted. Many 01 tne crimes
reported to have been committed are almost
too revolting to bo believed. This news
which readied hero by mail w.is confirmed
later on by the arrival of the lirilish ship
Baraacouta. To tills confirmation was added
UK' additional and more important news that
the revolutionists had finally triumphed.
i\ltcr the great victory General Donilla
inarched at the head of his victorious army
in Tegucigalpa. Ho was received with
great enthusiasm , according to the report
brought by the Uarracouta , and without op
position was proclaimed provisional presi
dent of theiepublie. He accepted the ofllco
and at once took charge of the government.
No account of his acts as executive has been
received , but it is said that many of the sup
porters of the former government have been
thrown into prison.
General Vasquez , Honilla's , leading rival ,
who has been chief supporter of the former
government , was not allowed to escape , ac
cording to the latest reports. He was re
taken In his flight ami brought luck to
Tegucigalpa , a prisoner. General Vasqnez
is charged with having committed many
outrages upon the supporters of the rev
olutionists who were penned in Tegucigalpa.
They now demand revenge. Largo bodies
of people are clamoring for the immediate
execution , but it is believed that Bonilla
will be merciful to bis former rival , who , al
though n rival , is also his kinsman. Gen
erals Villcla. Mattne and Tome , more fortu
nate than Vasquez , escaped and may get out
of the country.

LixcoLX , Neb. , April 4. [ Special Telegram
to Tin : Bci : . ] The house today put In some
of the hardest licks of the session. It got u
peed firm grip on business at the very start ,
and fairly made the wheels bum all day long.
After the Omaha charter bill had been
placed on the list for third reading and a
couple of resolutions passed , Governor
Cronnso's message recommending prompt
action t j provide for tbo control ot tlie peni
tentiary by the state was heard. Then an
other bitter potion was dropped in ex-Treas
urer Hill's cup by a special committee report
on the cash in the permanent school fund.
After this the committee that made so fa
vorable a report on the Institute for Feeble
Minded nt Beatrice last week got its report
returned and leave to investigate further.
Quito n number of hills were passed and to
top off the day the bill ot Shilling Bros , was
scut to a special committee to lo.ik into.
OpriH'il un the Clmrtrr Illll.
Tlio Omaha charter was the principal bone
of contention in the house this morning. The
vigorous prodding that the Douglas county
delegation had received bore Immediate fi nit
and demonstrated that all that had been
lacking was concerted and pernistent action
on the part of its members. A largo
delegation of Omahans came down on tlie
morning train and assisted in the work of
lifting the bill out of tbo abyss known as the
Niison brought up the matter by asking
unanimous consent that the bill be ad
vanced to third reading. ObjooUon was
raised and a motion was made to advance
the bill , which would require a constitu
tional majority , or fifty-one votes , to
carry It. Then the trouble began. Porter ,
Rhodes , Slovens and Haller opposed
it , while the charter was championed by
Dorics , Howe and the Douglas delegation.
It was charged that the independents were
" holding back the bill as a club to compel the
"Douglas county delegation to use its influ
ence in the senate to secure tlio passage of
tlio railroad bill. Rhodes resented the
charge , while Davies insisted that there
was ample backing for tlie statement. Ho
said that such a course was an insult
to tlio house to attempt to hold
up tlie Douglas county delegation by
such tactics as those pursued by the pro
fessional highwayman. Davies merrily
lambasted tbo gentleman from Valley , and
refused to bo called to order by the chair.
Wouldn't Olir.y tlin Clinlr.
Rhodes bad the floor when Da vies nroso to
ask a question , and at once sailed into him ,
Casper tried to call him to order , but there
was something on Davies' mind , and lie con
tinued to lacerate the cuticle of Mr.
Rhodes , whllq Casper pounded , gesticu
lated , besought and commanded In vain.
When Davies had relieved the pent-
up Utica ot liis thoughts , he apparently dis
covered for ihe first time ttiat the chair was
trying to call him to order and he meekly
The wrangle was interrupted by the Joint
convention and was renewed ns soon ns that
brief session was over. Tlie vote finally
came on tlio motion to advance and it car
ried on roll call by a vote of 53 to U'J.
The charter is , therefore , now
on third reading as amended by
the senate , with twenty-four bills
ahead of it. This will leave it subject to
another motion to again advance it and
place it on its passage at any time , and fifty-
one votes will do the Job. There will bo no
opportunity to again amend It or replace
any of tbo provisions cut out by the senate
unless the bill is recoaimittoJ for specific
amendment when placed on its passage.
On motion of Horst tlio report of tlio
special committee appointed to investigate
the failure of the ex-stato treasurer to invest
