LIMCOI.X. Xob. , April 8. [ Special to THE
BKI : . | The work of the Twenty-third legis
lature of the Btato of "s'ebras'ta U now his
tory , and history it is that will bo frquently
quoted in the years to come. At 8 : . " > "i o'clock
tonight the gavel sounded for the last time ,
nnd with the atinounaniLut of sine die ad
journment tliei few members who had re
mained until the clone bade each other good
bye , nnd gladly hurried away from the great
limestone pile that for three months had
been iho scene of their daily deliberations.
From 5 o'clock on the senile and house
chambers were almost , deserted. At 0
o'clock Representatives Casper and Stevens
held the fort in the house , while Lieutenant
Governor Majors and Senator Bnbjock alone
upheld the dignity of the senate. The em
ployes amused themselves in the senate by
bombarding each other with waste baskets
and paper wads. With n commendable do-
biro to preserve the waste baskets
from the general destructive tendencies
of the closing hours of the ses
sion some order-loving visitors 'hurled
them high toward the ceiling until
most of them hung suspended to the big
chandelier twenty-live feet from the floor.
Along toward 8 o'clock the members re
turned from supper until there was a re-
spcclablo number present in both houses.
There was nothing to do but to wait for the
nppearanco of the enrolled copies of the ap
propriation bills , for until they had been pre
sented , signed and sent to the governor netthei
house could adjourn. At fifteen minutes
to II o'clock the chairmen of the house and
bcnato committees on engrossed and en
rolled bills presented the long delayed ap
propriation bills to tlio presiding officers for
their signatures. Ten minutes later both
houses adjourned sine die , and the Twenty
third legislative assembly of Nebraska
ceased to have an ofllcial existence.
Worn .Mostly Willing lo Oult.
It was the seventy-fourth day of the ses
sion , having extended more than two weeks
beyond the limit fixed by law In which the
members could receive compensation , hence
tlio anxiety of some of them to get away
from the Capital City und return to tholt
homes , where they might supplj the wants
of reasonable men at a much less figure thar
was possible under the regular legislative
hotel rates of the biennial boom.
The closing scenes wcro to a certain extent
those that have characterized former ses
slons , but not to the degree that has some
times rendered the "last night" a round ol
disgraceful orgies that cast a cloud over tlu
entire legislature and detracted from tin
work of the whole session. That this was
not so was duo to the determination oi
several of the members who remembered tlu
scenes of two years ago , and to the llxiiig ol
the time of tlnal adjournment at high noon ,
It wus the intention to have the sessioi
terminate by daylight , n thing never accotn
pllshcd In the history of the state , but tlu
wrangle over the appropriation bills in-e
vented this much desired result. It was pos
Bible , however , to got all business out of tin
way shortly after noon , BO that the lattci
part of the afternoon and evening wai
simply a wait for the completion of the worl
of tlie enrolling committees in order thai
the bills might bo signed by the respectIvi
urcsiding otncers while the houses were it
open session and capable of transactini
The wait was n tedious ono , but it mean
the saving to the state of nearly half a mil
lion dollars and averted the necessity for at
extra session of the legislature that wouh
have been the result but for the linal agree
incut on the appropriation bills.

The truth might as well bo told about tin

If it docs place some of the members of tha
lawmaklng assembly in a light far removci

Members stood on the Hootof the house am
clamored loudly for immediate sine die ad
Journmcnt , knowing full well that It wouh
insure an extra session. They were toh
that tla-re was a probability that an agree
mcnt could bo reached by waiting a shot-
time , but this only increased their clamoi
for an agreement was the very thing the ,
did not want.
To the backbone and determination of tlu

state will not bo forced to meet the oxpens
of an extra session to complete the wor !
that was finished up this afternoon. Fron

Ho repeatedly urged upon the members t

bogged and p'.caded with them to come t
their senses and not allow a feeling of vln
dlcilvcncss toward the senate to proven
the extension of tlio olive branch for a whll
longer when It meant so much to the taa
ridden people of the state , it was an iq
hill light , for a number of the members hm
become tired of the delay and wore anxiou
to got away. They full that the senate hu
sinned away its day of grace , and that i
them was to bo an extra session It would b
the fault of the uptu-r houso. They tlier *
fore felt that they could not bo blamed I
they refused to spend any more time waltlu

iztra icsslou , but who did cot thluk ther
was n possibility of averting it. Added to
tills was the work of the few whoso only
fear was that there would not ho an extra
session to give them another chance to get
their fingers Into the state treasury to the
extent of > a day for u few additional
It was not to bo expected that any kind of
arguinciit would reach the latter class , but
fortunately It was not so with the others ,
for when Howe told them that there was
not only a possibility but a probability that
an agreement could be reached , und that If an
adjournment wis forced the responsibility
for the extra session would rest upon the
house , they at once ceased their objection ,
and remained until the agreement' was
Indc'-d reached and thu gcntlcnnn from
Xoniaha was able to muko good the promise
that he had held out to them.
Cloning Up the Cllmm.
When once the members of the two houses
began to get together the work of settling
up all existing differences went rapidly for
ward. The house had refused to concur In
the senate amendments to the salary appro
priation bill , but as soon as Iho news of the
action of the senate on the general appro
priation hill was received the action of the
house was reconsidered and the amendments
were agreed to. Moro trouble was expsri-
enced later on in regard to the claims appro
priation bill to pay off the outst Hiding : In
debtedness of the state , because tno S3iiito :
had taken on u lot of claims that the house-
had knocucd out ,
Howe was In the chair when the motion
to concur was made , and put it ami an
nounced the result as favorable on a vote
that , was by no means certain. Sev
eral members at once entered a loud
protest and it began to look as If
a great many parties who had hon
estly earned tholr money were to be
kept out of it for another two years because
301110 questionable claims had been Included
in the bill. An appeal was taken , hut in
stead of being presented to the house in that
light the vote was ordered taken over again ,
and the roll was called. It gave the mem
bers time to think over the situation , and in
view of the fact that the senate had receded
from Its position on the other bill to the ex
tent of nearly half a million dollars , the
house concluded that in view of all the circum
stances it would be Justified in yielding an
other point or two. Thus it happened that
the last bone of contention was amicably di
vided between the warring factions , and the
way was paved for a speedy adjournment
upon satisfactory terms. A few unjust
claims were undoubtedly allowed , but it was
upon the theory that it was good business
policy to spend SI to save - 100 , if the 5100
could not be saved in any other way.

Wliile the scenes of the closing hours were
not to be considered with those of two years
ago. when the most important bills of the
session wcro delayed until the last moment ,
and wcro then defeated while members who
had been Iccoyed to another part of the
building were hilariously ilrunic on cham
pagne furnished by the corporation lobbyists
for that express purpose , yet there were
enacted tonight , and in fact for tlio twenty-
four hours preceding the adjournment , per
formances that did not redound to the dig
nity of the legislature nor to the credit of
the state. There were demonstrations of
wild hilarity and boistcrousncss which were
perhaps excusable , but no excuse could boot-
fered for the wanton destruction of the prop
erty of the state. Copies of the house Jour
nal and of the statutes , waste paper baskets
and tablets of writing paper wcro recklessly
hurled hither and thither as missiles with
which the thoughtless members belabored
each other. Xot only was property to the
value of a considerable sum thus destroyed ,
but at least two members sustained painful
Senator Packwood was struck on the head
by a Hying volume at the close of last night's
session of the Joint convention , receiving an
injury from which ho is still suffering , while

vigorously propelled missile , and received a
The impression seemed to prevail that a
certain amount of property must bo de
stroyed , und to the discredit of the members
and tin- financial loss of the state it must bo
said that they wcro copiously successful In
carrying out their designs. The attention
of the presiding officers was frequently
called to it by members who objected to the
procedure , and an attempt was made to pre
serve order and decorum , the remarks of
the chair being generally directed to the
pages or to the employes , but "pages" and
"employes" who wcro the offending parties
were generally such as were elected by the
voters of legislative or senatorial districts.
( iuvrrnor's Trouble Coiiimciu-i-d ,
The haul" field has already been trans
ferred from the leglshitlve halls to the execu
tive uppartmonts , anil for the next few days
the governor will bo made the target at
which will bo alined countless protests , peti
tions and remonstrances. Particularly will
this bo true with reference to his impending
action on the maximum rate bill.
. The railroad managers and then-emissaries
have already begun to badger him. In an en
deavor to induce him to veto i he bill. He
was waited on this afternoon by the second
delegation that has come down from Omaha
lor tliis purpose , in the party wcro General
Manager Hurt of the Elkhorn , Blinkers
Kuunt/o. Yates and Uulc.li , and u score ol
other stars of moro or less magnitude hi
the railroad and banking firmament of tin
metropolis. Tins is only the second onst-t ,
but the governor knows what ho may expect
from this time until Tuesday , which is the
last day on which ho will have jurisdiction
over the bill. The cor | > orutlon interests will
be represented by numerous delegations that
hiiM ! already been ordered in from various
portions of the state , but the largo mass ol
the shippers and consumers will have in-
hearing in the matter. Great pressure is
being brought to boar upon the governor , but
the prevailing sentiment among the mem
bers of the legislature has been to the effect
that he would sign the bill.
John It. 1'iiniy'n t.'iiti'iioss.
There was walling and gnashing of teeth
among the members of thu Omaha ehartei
lobby today over the jut-glory that had been
practiced on the section relating to the
Board ot Public Works. It has been dis
covered that Uio work was done while the
bill was in the hands of the enrolling com-
mlttoo , and It was due to the personal efforts
ot the Interested parties. Councilman
Wheeler and two or three others

liRHMX , April 8. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to Tim Bm : . ) At court it
Is denied that Chancellor von Caprivl will
accompany the kaiser to Homo , as was origi
nally arranged. His majesty will only bo ac
companied by von Marshall and von ICidor-
ten-Warchten , the private counsellor of the
foreign omce. There is no desire in Wil-
holmslrasso to give any cause for a rupture
with tno Vatican. Every measure will betaken
taken to make the visit one of extreme cour
tesyso every point of etiquette-Is to be strictly
observed. In order to show the friendliness of
the kaiser's visit , General von Hulow. by
order , has invltcJ to a dejeuner , winch will
take place at the German embassy before the
visit to the Vatican , Cardinal Kamyolla , Car
dinal J-edoehowski and Cardinal Mocenini ,
former under secretary of state.
The invitation of Ledochowskl , champion
of Poland , is causing a goo.1 dealof comment ,
b2cnuse It seems to point at another blow
against the Ilismarokian-Schlo/ier policy of
the past , This fact lias also given further
pleasure to the Polish party , to which al
ready the kaiser has shown signs of friend
liness. These invitatlous are said here to
have caused considerable satisfaction at the
itiiHsl-i'M llc.iltli iiniK'oiiimcrco.
Most , alarming news has readied the for
eign olllco concerning the sanitary condition
of Russia , especially Polish-Russia. Typhus
has followed in the wake of cholera. At the
Russian embassy nil such reports are de
Count Shourtal is back again. Wo are all
speculating as to what has been the result of
his visit to St. Petersburg whether the Rus
sian commercial treaty is likely to become an
accomplished fact. The most contradictory
reports prevail , but at the embassy no information
mation is given out. There is no doubt about
Count Seliouvalofl's desire to see the treaty
ratltlcd , and the kaiser is not less keen.
Kaiser Wllholm Is busy arranging his pro-
pram for the future on his return from
Rome. ' Ho will pay a Visit to Count Stock-
berg at Wirsehowltz , in Schleswig. He will
go to Cowcs at the end of July , and remain
there for a week or two. A state banquet is
to be given In his honor by the queen at
Unlng the Tri-is Lever.
Once again the press is filled with in
spired articles urging a compromise on the
military hill , appealing to the patriotism of
tlio Reichstag to support it. The Kolnlscho
Xeltung even goes so far as to wave the red
flag of war , assorting that France is in such
dinleultics at homo that , there is nothing for
her but war to relieve her sufferings.
The memorable article in the Nerd
Deutsche Allgemeino Xeltung anent Otto
Brandes , containing a furious attack upon
the French government , which caused a
drop of 'JO per cent on the bourse in French
securities , may probably bo assigned to the
Vlrchow'A Dclortahlo Sprc'lincna.
Among the interesting exhibits that vill
bo seen at Chicago Is noticeably that of Dr.
Ylrchow. The professor himself is not likely
to go over , but von Jurgens. curator of
the Pathological Institute , lias charge of the
exhibits and sails by the Furst-l'isinarck on
tnoOth of this month , together with his
newly wedded wife. Dr. Frederick Mango ,
a well known and highly popular American
doctor , " who lias oeen studying for eight
month's under the professor , is also sailing
for the United States , and will ho lirst
assistant to Prof. Jurgens. The exhibits
consist of pathological and ostcological
specimens , contracted pelvis and specimens
of all kinds of tumors.
Victim of Ills idltor. :
There are many interesting points to bo
noted in connection with tlio expulsion of
Otto Brandes , the German newspaper corre
spondent from France , an event which last
week seemed to threaten dangers of all
kinds. In the llrst place Brandos Is quite
right when he says ho did not write the dis-
p.itch for which ho was expelled. He is a
victim of the reprehensible methods of Jour
nalism habitual to the Tngeblatt , for which
that no'vsp.iper has been soundly rated.
There was published in the Tageblatt a dis
patch dated ParU and marked with a sign
which means from a special correspondent ,
but It was not from a special correspondent ,
nor had it come from Paris. It was taken
from the Allgemeino RoU'heorrcspondeiu
and republished in the Tagoblatt as an
original dispatch. 'Iho Tagehlatt's editor
bhould have known better than to place so
much faith in the Allgemeino Corro-
sponacnz , because It has made rather serious
slips before in its efforts to please Its readers.
I have Just seen Brandes , who
expressed himself vtith the highest
indignation against Pclntan , the Asniorcs
police commissary. Ho said Polatan's state
ments wcro perfectly absurd , and said hu
had written on pollti.-s with an unbiased
mind. Politics could not bo mixed up with
"Asnleros is a great Bouliranlst center.
When Boulainlsm was rife , in my articles
I defended the republic , which has Just ex
pelled me , against Boulangism. That made

stantly by writing insults upon the walls of
my house. "

latitude members like Ahlwnrdt can bo al

most unanimous feeling of the house is
against wasting any tfmo on Ahlwardl by
permitting him to food hi * love of notoriety
by paying any further attention to his pseudo
relations. Yet many mcjnbcrs who dcsiro to

Com-i'mliiR the Army ( till.
Thu date of the second re.idhiK ot the
army bill depends upon the appearance of the
report of tlio committee which is now bing
prepared by Herr Groober , the secretary of
the committee. H Is expected that the re
port will bo presented nt the end of the
present month , und that the vote of the
Rolchhtag upon the measure will bo taken
ntxmt the middle of Jlay. The tentative ef-
foits at n compromise , In the meantime , give
promise of no result. The party leaders
cautiously watch eadh other while sounding
the public mind. Members ivlio have been In
contact with their constituents during the
recess have not learned anything inspiring
them to now action. /
The national liberals alone seem to bo
gravitating toward 'n compromise on largo
concessions. Tlio provincial committee of
that party has instructed its members lo do
everything In their power to bring about
an amicable scttlcnt > : nt with the govern
ment. At a recent national liberal meeting
at Spelr , a resolution was actually adopted
declaring in favor of the acceptance of the
bill , while ntn conference held a few days
since at Munich , Itcrr Marquardscn ex
pressed the hope that a faction of the center
party , with some radicals , would support Dr.
von Bennlgsen's revised oiTer to the govern
I'imltliiii of the Contrlxto.

sign of surrendering a point. Dr. Lieber

Tlio government oivans declare that the
reports of a conflict between Chancellor von
Caprivl and Dr. von Miguel , minister of
finance , are entirely hazeless. The papers
argue that the chancellor an 1 Dr. Miguel
need each other's services against the com
mon enetpy. There Is certainly no external
symtom of a quarrel , yet It is known that
Dr. Miguel is cmbnrnlssed in arranging to
meet the new military demands , which
amount to b'JIKJXI ) ( ) ) marks , and to meet the
demand for oU.OOJ.OOO marks additional for
the extension of the stito railways in
Prussia. Ho advocates the granting of gov
ernment concessions to tlio opposition in
both the Reichstag and T-antag. and aims at
getting further control Ot the ministry when
Chancellor von Caprivl goes out of olllce.
The railway bill has been laid before the
lower house of the Pj ussian Diet.
Cominrrrlitl TriMty lollcy.
The chancellor's commercial treaty policy
has been strengthened ! > y ofllcial statistics
issued at Vienna givliifj the results of the
llrst year's trade under tl.o Austro-Germun.v
treaty. Despite the reduction of the traflio
on agricultural products , the exports from
Austria to Germany were but slightly
changed. The exports of pi > rs are increased
1S1 per cent. The expprts of wheat , corn ,
beans , rye and cattle actually decreased.
The report thus disproves the contention of
the agrarians that the treaty has injured
German farmers. It assists to prove that
tlio trade in agricultural produce depends
primarily upon the harvest and not en the
tariff. The harvest-in Germany in 1S9J was
good. What additional corn was wanted
was got from the United States.
Coui t von Schouvaloff , the Russian am
bassador , recently had a conference with
Chancellor von Caprivi , during which ho ex-
ulained to the chancellor the divergencies
between Russia and Germany on seconding
points of the proposed Russo-German com
mercial treaty. Conn * , von Sehouvaloff
stated that the c/.ar wus desirous of the
early conclusions of tlio negotiations.

April 8. | By Mexican C.iblo to the New
York Herald Special to Tin : IlKE.I In
obedience to instructions from tlio Herald ,
received by a Mexican cable dispatch , I have
made an investigation into the report that
nil American consulate lu Peru had been at
tacked by a mob , for which an apology had
been demanded by the United States gov-
eninicnt. 1 have not been able to lln.l that
any consulate in Peru had been invaded , but
incidents connected with the reported sack
ing lead me to believe that the outrage- took
place in La Paz , llolivia.
If this be true , Air. Hicks , the United
States minister to Peru , has apparently
acted hastily. What makes it apparent that
the row in Lu Pais the one to which Min
ister Hicks refers , is the fact that it men
tions the sacking of a Masonic lodge room.
This row occurred on March 28 , and an ac
count of it was telegraphed to this bureau
by the Herald's correspondent in La Paz.
From here it was forwarded by cable to the
After receiving the instructions to investi
gate the matter I telegraphed the Herald's
correspondent in La Paz for further par
ticulars. His account has just been received.
He says that on March " 7 a party of Amer
ican students , who were on their way to the
Chicago fair , attended the funeral of Senor
Ca/ardlia , .1 Chilian merchant of La Paz.
The funeral services wore held in the
Masonio temple. This enraged the anti-
masonic populace , who at'.ao : ed the build

driven out and the ceremonies suspended.

The mob then sot the building on lire and
it was burned to the ground. The residence
ot Senor Mc'ndcz , a custom house ofllccr , . who
was believed to sympathize with the Masons ,
wus sacked and burned. During the riot
several persons were injured. A man named
Mayer received a bullet wound , another man
named Segarroa'was serio'usly hurt by being
hit with a stone. Senor Calderon was struck

killing of the white men. My son that was
killed by the Indian police was the cause of

LONDON- , April S. An attempt this morn
ing on the part of publicans and others to
make an Imposing public demonstration
acnit'st the proposed law cstablishlut ; local
option and abridging the privileges of the
liquor trade , resulted in a scene of riot and
disorder. The plan of the managers of the
demonstration was to have processions
formed In the various districts , all of them
converging into Trafalgar square , where the
meeting of protest was to be held.
It appears that the riot was the
result of plans deliberately prepared by
the tcmtioranro supporters of the bill.
The tomper.inco p.irty.to the num'Kir of
thousands , occupied Trafalgar square un-lcr
secrnt ardors long before the arrlv.il of the
liquor party or the unti-vctocists Thu ob
ject of this occupation wan to'frustrate the
demonstration , and as the liquor p.irty ap-
poarcd. the temperance men quickly showed
their ability to usu something bcsid-- moral
suaUon In dealing with thu drink questions.
As procession after procession of the antl-
votoists appeared with their lunnors , con
taining legends protesting against thr < hill ,
the temperance people pounced on them and
the banners uori ) quickly reduced to shreds.
Frequent lights were indulged in. an I the
police arrested the ringleaders.
The anti-vetnlsiB endeavored to carry out
their procrain of addresses , str.vinj ; the
demerits , of the veto , or local option system ,
proposed by the bill. The speeches were in-
audlblo , owing to the groans und liootlng of
the t"uperancn party. Sm-h banners as had
been saved wcro carefully furled to save
them from dcstrunlinn.

raged by previous attacks UIKW themselves ,

pcoplo , however , rallied and renewed the
attack , carrying all before them tin 1 obtain

everything tfelr own way and closed the
