relief corps , carrying lanterns , got ready lo

the victims. The blacksmith shop was

lying there , one Ilsfguretl with its heall

and escape slopes without success , and It was
'l' I not until three hours after the explosIon
, , that a ' volunteer party entered the main entrance -
trance to the slopes and SOOn aferwards returned -
\ , : turned with two bodies. They reportell that
caves stopped further progree , down the
slope. 'fhen a party went down to clear
away the caves , after which the searching
' . party araln enteretl. This slop being down
2,000 feet with nine levels , each one ant a
, - halt miles long , It will probably require several -
oral days to reach all parts ef the mine. A
' ; few lives were saved because of the time of
the explosion. The miners quIt work at 6
o'olock and It Is customary for them lo lIe

. LINCOLN , March 21.-Speclal ( Telegram. )
-The senate today , after a few hours' debate
In cOlmltee of the whole , agree to pass
the bet sugar bounty bill already passe by
the house , but with an amendment providing I
! for the payment of a bounty of fve-lghths I
of a cent a pound upon chicory manufacture - I
ture In this state . providing the manufacturers -
turers pay ; 10,50 per ton for the chicory
beets at the factory.
The adoption ot the chicory amendment
was a surprise to oven the senate Itel I
was offered by Crawford , one of the pcpulst
senators , from 101 county and It was
Ilressetl by the populist senators more as a
fOllor hope against the sugar bounty. Crawford -
ford himself was a sincere supporter of the !
amentlment. The turn of sentmen t from a
feeling of uncompromising hostility to open
friendliness was one of the interesting
phases of the dny's discussion. The In-
aide history of thIs remarkable
change of sentiment may perhaps relain
one of those mysterious legislative secrets
deposited wih so ninny of the bills now
musUng away In the basement . vaults of the
capitol. I Is only known that for some
reason the friends ' or the sugar bounty and
the representatives at the sugar Interests
of the state did not carl to throw the chlcry
bounty overboard . The representatve of the
sugar Interests on the floor of time sanate
were scarcely unable to conceal their ptr-
tlrbaton over the situation , and they put In
the lay In an effort to reconcile the warring
InterEsts on lie l0r of the senate.
CIANB ASSAILED TIE BILL.
The feature of the afternoon debate was
the savage assault made by Crane upon the
house bounty bill. lie asserted that the
house bill proposed to take the money out of
time Iloclets of the people and pour It Into the
coffers of time corporations owning the sugar
factories , and he warned the republican sen-
Itors that the party they represented would
be held reaponslble. The secret of Crane's
hostility to the house hilt lel In time fact
that he hatl Introduced I substitute for the
house bill which the senate declined to oven
rend. In the end Senator Crane voted lo
recommend the house bi for passage.
Cl'nwfonl precipitate the dIscussion on tie
hill hy offering an amendment providIng for
the payment of I bounty of fveeighths of n
cent per pound to the manufacturer of prepared -
Caldwel of Hal county led In the oppo-
siton to time amendment , saying that it would
nllo t certainly defeat the sugar bounty , IS
the house could not bc Induce to again take
up the question , especially In view of the
fact that tomorrow Is the sixtieth and last
day of tIme houso's legal existence.
Stewart or Dawes county and of the Un-
compromisIng foes of the sugar bounty ,
bitterly opposed the house bi under discus-
sion He saId that It would bo far bettor for
the Interests of the state that the present
session should close today rather than Il
should pass a law under the whip and spur.
"We ae here arguing a queston of con-
slderablo importance. I Is a question entrenching -
trenching upon the property rights of the
ieople. I Is proposed to reach into the pock-
ots of the people and take tberetrom large
sums of money , not for the purpose of defraying -
fraying the expenses ot the state govern-
iuent , but tC enrich a private corporation. " , ,
He beleved 1h 'bl was an infringement upon
the state and national constitutional rights
at the people.
Sloan was ot the opinion that I the
chicory interests of the state were of sufficient
Importance no difficulty would b experienced
In Inducing the governor to send In I special
message recommendIng the passage of a bill.
There were aho other methods familiar to
the senators by whIch a bill provIding ! for
the payment at a bounty on chicory could
bt brought before the senate
WHAT ABOUT CHICORY ?
Crawford of Holt county the author at the
"chicory amendment , " In defense of his
proposition , made his first address since the
session. The chicory Industry , he said was
comparatively unknown to the people of the
United States ; The use at chicory as a substitute -
sttute for coffee was general In Europe , and
France alone consumed 124OOOOOO worth
every year Tbe United States Imports
$8,000,000 worth of chIcory annually . There
are but three chicory factories In the UnIted
Slate , one of them being lucated at O'Nei.
tn 10it county. Chicory beets are purchased
by the O'Nei factory from 8,50 to $9 per
ton , and the yield Is from six to
nln' , ' alll _ _ f _ average _ _ _ - TS ylell . _ _ _ _ . u. _ _ . _
" ' 1' w" I'n .n ; , . , UjU&fl UIUU , bUYIflI
tons of chicory beets to produce one ton of
chicory. A chicory factory can be erected
anti equipped for about 10OOO. The Holt
county senator was of the opinion that the
chicory industry , ut the rate of its present
growth would In I few years amount to
$100,000,000 annually. Every county In the
state Is adapted te the production of the
chicory beet , and there Is no reason why
Nebraska might not In a few year have 11
Industry that , would leave millions of dollars
hi the state annually.
The remarks of the senator from 101
county lade a marked Impression 'upon the
mlntl8 of all the republican senators This
fact was very e\'ldent from the change In
the drift ot sentiment as time discussion pro-
81u:1 : first asked the senator from 10it
If ho was acting In good faith In offering the
ame mid mu en t.
Crawford answered In the aifirmnative . He
believed theo was I great Industry waiting
for development In Nebraska In the chIcory.
Sloan then replied that the mater was
entirely new to iilmn He admitted that he
was favorably Impressed with the IJroipect
'hell out hy the seuator from Holt county.
I Crawford's amt'iidniemit conld have been
brought In aa a separate bill he would feel
InrIIHII to snlJport It. lie was In favor of
foslntng , enenuraghi ! and protecting any In-I
timistry that I'romlsed such results ! those :
IJretlctell by the author of the amendment.

only a question or the proper enCOUragEmont.
As far l the chicory bunty was concerned ,
the Gage county senator was net
In favor of jeopardizing the uc-
cost of the sugar bill by tack-
Ing on the amendment proposed by the sen-
Rtor from 101 county , lie was not unfriendly -
friendly to the chicory Interests of the state
and would cheerfully vote for a bounty I
I 1011,1 , come up In i separate bill.
At the conclusion ! of Graham's remarks
the senate took a recess until 2 o'clock ,
After recess the discussion of the eugar bill
\\as restimed . Speker Sprecher opposed the
bill and Intimated that the senators on the
republican title had been hypnotized by the
sugar lobby .
Several senators spoke for amid against the
chicory amendment. I was evident , how-
ever , that the opposition , which hall bell 80
formldahlo In the earlier part of the day , was
rapidly disintegrating. Nearly every senator
Oi the republican side had spoken In favor
ot the chIcory bounty , even If they had ex-
liiessed doubts as to the advisability of Including -
chiding n provision for such a bounty II the
bill under discimssion . '
I remained for Watson lo strike time blow
that broke up the opposition entirely. He
laid that there was no muse for his republican
colleagues , that they could not hope to go be-
fore the People all escape criticism If they
did not act perfectly fair. lie was convinced
that time chicory Industry was ns much en-
titled to the bounty as was the sugar Indus-
try. The senate was clearly willing to extend -
tend the ail of the etato to the chicory In-
dustry. The only way It could be done was
by adopting the amendment offered by time
senator from Hol county. lie did not be-
hove that any other way could be legal er
fair. lIe was In favor of adopting Craw-
furd's amendment. ,
Pope also favored the adoption of the Craw- '
ford amendment 'I
The acton of the 0100 and Saline county I
senators threw the opponents of the chicory
amendment Into Rome little confusion There
wa evidently I serious break In the " repub-
lican ranks. There was no time for I caucus -
cus Whatever was to bJ done must be
done at once , antI so most of the republican
senators gathered In n group In one corner
or the senate chamber , put theIr heads lo-
gether anti discussed the situation In hurried -
ned whispers. The result ot the Imprmptu
caucus was scarcely harmonious Akers
then undertook to secure a recess until 4:30
o'clocl but his motion to that elect did not
meet with the approbation of the senate
TIm motion to adopt Crawford's amendment ,
was put to the senate , and upon division ,
fifteen senators voted yea and thirteen nay.
The amendment was declared adopted , and
after one or two amendments made necessary
by the sudden enlargement ot the scope of
the bi the committee rose and Stewart of-
bred the following amendment :
Provided . That It nny manufacturer or
sugar or chicory shnl enter Into any agree-
ment with any other manuracturln company -

facturlng , sale or . handling ot these articles .

The amendment was voted down by a
strictly party vote , ant the report of the
cOlmlt was adopted.
