two branches of the general assembly for
the election of United States senator was
held today, but only democratic members
participated and there was no election.
After concurring In adjournment of the
house until Friday the democrats proceeded
to the Benate chamber, where the Joint
esslon was called to order by Senator
Adams, president pro tem of the democratlo
senate. Thers were present twenty-six
Senators and twenty-five representative,
total of fifty-one, which la the number re
quired to elect.
Three republican senators were In the

before ballot was taken. Senator Theo
dore McGuIre, a democrat, also retired
after the Joint session had refused to ex
cuse him from voting, leaving only fifty

that the Joint session was Irregular, and
Ave democrats besides McQulre refused to
vote. On the Joint ballot forty-five votes
Were cast, all being for Henry M. Teller.
The Joint session then adjourned until noon
Claim Session Is Invalid.
The republican leaders say that any ac
tion the Joint session may take Is Illegal
nd Invalid, as the bouse bad adjourned.
They agreed to the adjournment in order
to give the two senates a chance to make
peace and they did not anticipate the plan
Of the democrata to bold Joint session.
After the house adjourned without per
mitting a Joint session the point was rataod
that no ballots taken on subsequent days
would be valid because the statutory pro
vision had not been complied with today.
The legal advisers of the house managers
aid. however, they were satisfied after a
careful examination o( the federal and state
constitutions and the statutes of the United
States and of Colorado that tt was not
fceceseary for the assembly to meet today
to compare Journals It tt did not see fit.
It was admitted that when the two houses
did meet It would be necessary to go ahead
with the balloting and that one ballot must
be taken 90 each legislative day there-
after.- ' ;' ' "
Mr. Stewart, one of ths republican man
agers, said the subject had been gone over
carefully by able attorneys who were unan
imously of the opinion that it was not
necessary to meet in Joint session today or
Ths republican senators held an execu
tive session today, Lieutenant Oovernor
Slaggott presiding, and at Us conclusion
the members said, there was "nothing to

gether have proved unavailing.
Speaker leads for Claimants.
Republican candidates for the hotwe,

he replied: "There Is nothing before me

body I shall recognize under the law."

(FYcm a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Jan. 21. (Special Tele
gram.) Secretary Hitchcock today trans
mitted to the senate committee on publlo
lands a favorable report on Senator Diet
rich's blU at authorizing the leasing of
grazing lands In the state of Nebraska.
While the report was written by Assist
ant Commissioner Richards, the secretary,
as is customary, transmitted the bill to
the committee with a favorable Indorsement
thereon. In his report Mr. Richards states
that the bill makes preference In favor
of actual and bona fide homestead settlers
and owners of private lands to lease ad-
Jolnlng publlc whlch ,re of the char.
OT,d.j lo th. .... .. i. ,h-i.
natural condition subject only for live stock
grazing purposes and not capable of irri
gation. The assistant commissioner then goes on
to recite the general terms of the bill
and as to 'the disposition of the net pro
ceeds accruing from the leases he says:
"I think the bill makes a wise disposition
of the net proceeds accruing from leases.
The people of the public land states have
long considered It to be a hardship that
no revenue should be directly derived from
the large area of publlo lands lying within
their boundaries, for the control and pro
tection of which It is necessary for them
to furnish all the machinery of government.
Under this bill one-fourth of the net re
ceipts will go to the county and one-fourth
to the state, while the remaining one-halt
goes into the fund for the reclamation of
arid land, which promises so much for the
development of the arid and semi-arid re
gions." ' Touches oa Fencing-.
Upon the subject of fencing, of which so
much has been said and written during the
last six months. Governor Richards has the
following to say in his report on the leas
ing bill: "Notwithstanding It is prohibited
by law, it is a fact that considerable areas
of land In several of the public land states
and territories have been Inclosed with
fences and are used for grazing purposes
by private parties, associations of Individ
uals and In some instances by communities.
In some Instances the summary removal of
these fences would work a hardship dis
proportionate to the benefits whtch the pub
lic would dertvs from such removal. Vari
ous unsuccessful efforts to obtain legisla
tion upon this matter have, been made and
others are now contemplated, but owing to
the near approach of the end of the session
of congress It is probable that unless this
bill become a law there will be no legisla
tion of this character during this sesssTn,
in which event this office will have no dis
cretion in enforcing the act of February 25,
...In closing .his report the assistant com
missloner says: "It will be observed, that
this act applies only to the state of Ne
braska, In whtch state there is a large area
of public lands which are only valuable
for grazing purposes, where It is thought

publlc grazing lands."
Otherwise Fences Come Down.
Senator Dietrich, in speaking of the re
port, said that it was as favorable as the
most exacting homesteader could wish;
that It discussed the question most clearly
and that It now devolved upon the legis
lature of Nebraska to say whether the
delegation in congress from that state
should move for the early consideration
and passage of the measure. He said that
he had received most emphatic statements
from Secretary Hitchcock; that fences on
the public domain in Nebraska would ba
pulled down should congress fall at this
session to take action upon this much
vexed question. He stated be had no opin
ion to give out until after tbe legislature
Two Judges for Nebraska.
There Is every reason for believing that
tbe bill dividing Nebraska into two Judi
cial districts will become a law before tbe
dose of the present congress. It in under
stood that the president is In favor of the
measure, as It would solvs by Its own mo
tion a most intricate problem which con
front, the president, namely, the choice of
a United Slates district Attorney. It Is
still further understood tuat the Nebraska
delegation is a unit for the measure. Mr.
Burkett. who ha. been most active in be
half of the division of the state into north
and south Judicial districts, told a Bee rep
resentative today that he would have a
hearing before the full committee on judi
ciary ot the bouse next Friday. He stated
that the subcommittee of Judiciary had had
the bill under consideration snd had agreed
to a favorable report upon the same, thla
committee being composed of Julius Kahn,
California; Henry W. Palmr, Pennsyl
vania, and R. L. Henry, Texas. This com
mittee will report Mr. Burkett's bill to the
full committee on Friday, when the rep
resentative from the First Nebraska dis
trict will ssk that the senate measure,
which Is Identical with Mr. Burkett's bill.
I be substituted for the bill which he intro
duced In tbe present congress.
Should tbe senate bill be favorably re
ported upon, as now seems most likely, It
will have consideration under a call of com
mittees, and as the Nebraska delegation
stands as A unit behind It, there is evry
reason to believe that Senators Dietrich
and Millard will shortly have additional
patronage thrust upon them.
Congressman Burkett today, after con
siderable labor, was informed by the Post
office department that bis application to
Increase the amount allowed for horse feed
for nine mounted carriers In Lincoln had

$275 a year for horse fod, thus equallzfng

TOM HORN PLANS TO ESCAPE
One of Hem la the Plot Weakens aad
Gives tko Whole Plan
CHEYENNE. Wyo., Jn. 21. (Fpeclal
Telegram.) An attempt was to have been
made tonight to liberate Tom Horn, the
condemned murderer of Wllllo Nlrkcll, but
ons of the conspirator weakened and ex
posed the plot. Frank Herr, a cowboy,
was engaged by Horn's friends to communi
cate with the prisoner and arrange the de
tails of escape. Herr stole a saddle and
was sentenced to three months' Imprison
ment In the same Jatl In which Horn Is
Incarcerated. Horn communicated with
Herr and gave him written instructions
what to do when he, Herr, obtained his
freedom. These provided tor the purchase
of dynamite with which the waif of the Jail
was to be blown down at a time when Horn
was exercising Id the corridor. A saddle
horse, with guns, ammunition, provisions
and clothing, was to be stationed In an
alley near the Jail, and other provisions
made for the escape.
The letters and other evidences of the
daring plot are In the possession of the
officers. Horn denies Horr's story, also
that he wrote the letters, out experts say
the writing is that of Horn. Extra pre
cautions to prevent a delivery will be taken
from now on. Horn's case Is now In the
supreme court, where arguments will be
made for a new trial, but It Is expected the
petition will be denied and that Horn will
be sentenced to be hanged some time In

CHICAGO. Jan. 21. Representatives of
live stock interests of Omaha, St. Joseph
and Sioux City took turns today In ex
plaining to the Interstate Commerce com
mission that Chicago Is favored In rates
and train service over those cities.
W. J. C. Kenyon, manager of the South
Omaha stock yards, said it stock trails
maintained the same rate of speed used
from Cumberland to Omaha In going from
Omaha to Chicago it would take them
thirty-eight hours to get there Instead of
twenty-three as at present.
Shippers to Omaha were further ham
pered by trains arriving in the afternoon
Instead of In the favored hours of the morn
Mr. Kenyon said shipments to Chicago
had not decreased and he knew of no con
ditions which required a change of the
formr relative rates between live Stock
and manufactured goods.
Horace Wood, assistant general manager
of the St. Joseph exchange, gave similar
evidence und Edward McVann, commis
sioner of the Sioux City Commercial club,
said lu his opinion the present adjustment
of rates was pretty fair as between cities,
but with Chicago having a trifling advant
age. It developed through Mr. McVann's testi
mony that shippers usually secured the ad
vantage of unused portions of bills of lad
ing so that the actual stock rates from
Sioux City were considerably lower than
the rates on the product. He further de
clared that If the commission lowered the
present live stock rates Into Chicago he
sbonld ask the Iowa commission to lower
the distance tariffs accordingly.
If the hearing results In a decision that
there should be a reduction In the' rates
on live stock from Missouri river territory
to Chicago, the railroads may be compelled
to meet a number of claims for the differ
ence between the rate as decided upon and
that which has been charged. These claims
If they are filed by all of the shippers who
have paid or may hereafter pay the higher
rate, will amount to millions of dollars.

LINCOLN, Jan. 21. (Special.) A delega
tion of organized labor men from Omaha,
headed by H. G. Stevenson, business agent
of the Trades and Building council, was in
the city today and left protest, from ten
labor unions of Omaha (.gainst the Saund-ers-Giloert
bill to change the date of the

day in March to the first Tuesday In May.
These protests are frjra tbe paperhangera,
painters, stcamfitters, plumbers, bricklay
ers, arainlayers, retail clerks and ths two
unions of hodcarrlers, black snd white.
They represent a large rumber of the or
ganized labor men of Omaha. The protests

O'Neill of Lincoln, who will bring them be
fore the tpper house.
"We trotest against this bill tor do po
litical reason," said Mr. Stevenson. "We

the Interests cf the city of Omaha in gen

Instead of March it will retard the letting
of 'municipal contracts for building and
construction work at least two months,
which will run tbe season late ' Into ths
winter and have 'the disastrous effect ot de

the city of needed improvements. We will
do our utmost to cecure the defeat ot the
bill in the senate. While I have the pro
