When the bills Introduced yesterday wen
reached for a second reading , Mr Hanson
led ort In a contest which hen been brewlnf
for several da > a. When Senate flic No. SO
by Mr , Orothan of Howard , icgulatlng stock
yards , was read the second time Mr Hanson
moved that It bo referred to the commlttct
on miscellaneous corporation.1 ? . The motlor
was seconded by Mr. 1'iltz of Thurston.
The motion provoked the most anlmatct
debate soj far Ihla session Mr. Mutpopu
Hit of Kcja 1'aha , opposed It. IIo quotct
from parliamentary law to the effect tha
the author of nny bill had a right to have
It referred to n friendly tommlttce.
Mr. llcal , populUt of Cuator. called the at
tcntlon of the senate to the fact that marl ]
100 bills had been refcricd to committees bj
the lieutenant governor and that no one lint
rained an objection.
.Mr. Hansom defended bh motion In ar
elaborate argument. He contended that al
bills , according to the constitution of Nc
brasUn , should be referred lo an approprlati
committee Hte Insisted that a Mil to rrgu
late stockyards should appropriately be re
fcrred only to the committee on mlacellane
ous corporation , and that to refer U to anj
other committee xvca a icllcctlon upon tin
Mr. Grothan , populist of Howard , did not
ngreo with the senator from Douglas. He
said that It had been the custom for the
lieutenant governor , as the presiding otllcer
of the senate , to refer all hills to standing
committees Two stock jarils bills bad al
ready betn Introduced and refcired lo tbn
committee on agriculture , and no protest
had been entered.
Mr. Gondrlng of Platte moved to table
Hansom's resolution. Mr. Graham was willIng -
Ing , ho said , to rely upon the Judgment of
the presiding officer. Mr. Gonway agreed.
Jlr. Murphy argued that there was not nec
essarily a clOEe relationship between a Uock
jard.s bill and the committee on miscella
neous coiporallons lie contended that the
agrlcultmat Interests of the state wcro as
much Interested In the bill to regulate the
stock jards as were the trcmbcrs of the com
mittee on miscellaneous corporation" .
Mr Fcltr of ICelth tried to stem thu tide
of opposition to Kinsom'a motion by arguing
that the majority In the senate was only
following the precedents long since es
tablished by the republicans , llo thought
the republican opposition to the Hansom
motion , came v. 1th very poor grnca ,
