(From a Buff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, March $. (Special Tels
grm.) Tha bill providing for tbs con
struction of a bridge and spproach across
th Missouri rlvsr at or near South Omaha
was passed by th house this morning. The
bridge Is not only designed for the passsgs
of railway trains but It also provides for
passagsways for wagons, carriages, street
cars and foot passengers.
According to ons of the amendments rec
ommended by th interstate and foreign
commsrc committee, th bridge must, be
built with unbroken and continuous spans
and th lower point of th bridge super
structure shatl not be less than fifty fsst
abov high-water grade line for bridges
as established by the Missouri river com
mission. Th spans ovsr ' th waterway
must be 800 feet In th clesr between the
pier or between piers and abutments.'
While It haa seemed asy to secur the
psssag of this measur in ths house, It
Is anticipated that It will have a rocky
road to travel In th senate, as It Is known
that Senator Millard doea not look with a
great' deal of favor upon this snterprise. It
would not be surprising If th bill were
put to slsep In the senat commsrc com
mittee, not to be awakened until after the
Fifty-seventh congress adjourns.
Wholesale Retirement Proposed.
What may with entire propriety be called
an "omnibus retirement" bill was Intro
duced today by Representative Burkett, at
th request of Captain Grlmatsad of Salem.
Neb. Th bill authorises th president to
' appoint la ths regulsr army and then re
tire th persons wboss names are given
with th rank they held In th civil war,
Spanish-American war or Philippine tnsur-
Those who s re to be benefited from this
bill and ths rank they ar to take are:
Robert W. Leonard, colonel; James E.
, fihallenberger, John R. Prince, William 1.

Senator Millard ststed todsy that hs
- would sndsavor to secur th early passsgs
of a bill authorising ths sals of a part of
ths Fort Nlobrsra military reservation,
whiuh aaa been pending In coogrea for asv
rat years and which was favorably reported
by th senat committee on military affairs
Friday. Ths bill authorises tha secretary
ot the interior to sell the village pf VaJ.

Thurston county requesting that a delega
tion of their tribe be permitted to com to
Washlng-toa to aid la securing lbs psymeat
of $100,000 out of ths principal now held by
the government In truat for th Indians.
Congressman Robinson also received a
letter from th Indlsns concerning this mat
ter. He called at th Indian office today
and was told that th department had In
formed th Indians there was no necessity
for their coming her.
A bll would hsve to be passed by congress
authorising ths seecretary of th Interior
to pay this amount, and th department
does not believe such a bill iould bs passed
at this time.
Decide Ae-alast Whit Wlnai.
Congressman Robinson called upon ths
commissioner of ths land office today re
garding a communication from a cross
breed woman, White Wing, of the Winne
bago agency, regarding a land matter. It
appears this women Is th only living child
of John Cloud, now deceaaed, who held
an allotment of land at th time ot his
death. His widow claims title to th lend,
also holding an allotment In her own right.
Th department found upon looking over
the records that John Cloud was not law
fully married to the woman and ths depart
ment stated that the tacts ar as stated
and If Cloud was not living with th woman
tn question, as his lawful wife shs Is not
entitled to dower. The department further
stated that it would have no Jurisdiction
over the matter, and that the woman, Whit
Wing, would have to look to th Nebraska
courts for her remedy. '
