(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, March 5. (Special.) The
house rode rdagh-shod over Its committee
on accounts and expenditures by refusing
to concur In a report submitted recommend
ing the allowance of a list ' of important
claims, among them being' a bill for print
ing the blue books and the bouse file covers.
The entire bill was:

Hathorn of Red Willow, chairman ot the
committee, urged .that the committee had
availed Itself of every means of determin
ing the justice of these claims and had
satisfied Itself ' of the result.
Sweezy. of . Adams launched Into a vig
orous attack' of the report, demanding that
tne nouse De allowed to make lurtner in
vestigation, so as to satisfy itself of the
justice of the claims,. 'He took particular
ftxcepUoa to the Item for blue books, house
ler covers aid - furniture,, carpets - and
settees. He declared the bills as to these
Items all appeared, to be exorbitant and
said for that reason - further Investigation
should be had.
weesy la Inqwlsttlve.
"They say We should' pay $1,205 for fur
niture, carpets and settees," exclaimed Mr.
Swe'ezy. "Where Is" the furniture? Where
are the-carpets? Where are the settees 7"
he demanded.' " '
Mr. Sweety was particularly opposed to
accepting the committee's report and al
lowing' the bills on that basis,, because, the
contracts for these Items Lad been let, not
by the house, but by the secretary ot
state, whose right to let such contracts
was -questionable,. In ' his judgment. He
said he was after Information and wanted
to know It the house thdught It was right
to "blindly" accept the report of the com
mlftee as. float-$ tola, mattery , t 1'.v:.':
Speaker Mockett said that as ths mem
ber had ajikari fnr InfnrmAtlnn hit wntiM
say that the committee was disposed to be
eminently fair.
"Former committees have gone over slm
liar claims snd allowed them without ever
referring them to the house at all," said
the speaker, "but this committee, desirous
of being fair to all, has submitted It
work to the house, and. I think, we should
not repudiate a single claim."
Ths hill for carpets, furniture and
settees was contrasted during the session
ot 1901. Hathorn, In reply to Sweezy, said
the .committee bad located every Item un.
der this head.
Ferry of Furnas observed that these con.
tracts were made by the secretary of state,
a precedent followed In this state for years,
and questioned the moral or legal right ot
the legislature to repudiate a single claim.
Junkln ot Gosper said he was reliably
Informed that the secretary of state, when
he made the contract for the printing of
the blue -books, wss under the impression
that they were to cost enly $1.60 each In
stad of $3.
Sweezy then moved to reject the Items
of blue books and house UTe covers and al
low for the former $150 and for the latter
$260, and the motion was carried.
Allow Bills aa Anaeaded.
Epurlock in offering an amendment' to
aweezy's motion sarcastically declared that
Sweezy was a "standing member" and that
yet there were chairs lu the house, even. It
Sweezy did furnish bis own, "for which he
seems to have little use."
Epurlock asked if the house should go on
record as a dishonorable creditor. He said
.hgt such claims had been allowed from
time immemorial and he was in favor of
allowing these.
"If the gentleman from Adams objected
to these claims why did he not go before
the committee at the proper time and
make known hla objections and not wait
until this report waa Introduced?" bs
asked. Continuing be said the house should
iccept the report and work of this commit
.ee or investigate the work and reports of
.-very one of its forty-four committees.
"Will the gentleman demand that?" ssked
In reply to Spurlock's reference Sweezy
retorted that he thought the house could
cpnomlie In the supply of chairs, tht one
ought to do tor Epurlock and himself, be
cause when he wss not on the floor bis col-
'esgue from Cass was.
The repartee created considerable amuse
Sweezy then added that he waa led to In
sist on thorough investigation of this re
port, as he recalled that a preceding legls
lature had allowed a bill for $4,000 for wall
The Epurlock amendment that tha report
n clalma aa amended by the Sweear motion
be adopted waa carried.
First Debate aa Reveaae BUI.
At this time the general revenue bill was
submitted by the revenue committee, which
reported the bill for passage with fifty
amendments. Sweezy moved that the bill
be . placed at the head of general Ola, to be
considered In committee of the whole and
that the amendments be printed.
Perry moved as a substitute that. the re
port of the committee be adopted and the
1.111 placed on general file and the motion
was. at once, aeconded by Rouse of Hall.
This precipitated another spirited de
bate. Sweezy accused Perry and his aids
of trying to kill the bill, saying:
- "The gentleman from Furnaa and others
opposed to the revenue bill have sought
this opportunity of forcing the adoption of
this committee report, with a view ot se
curing the adoption In the vote on that mo
tion of the amendments to the bill, with
the ultimate design of killing th bill."
Sweezy Is thought by this remark to have
disclosed ' Ms friendliness for the messMre
as It was framed.
Wilson of rawnee took a hand In the
discussion, siding with Sweezy, contending
that the bill was the most vlta measure
before the legislature and should be dealt
with wlthotit Interruption. Sears of Burt,
while of -committing himself as exactly
favorable to Sweety's motion, urged sctlon
on the bill, contending with Wilson and
others that It waa 'of such vast Importance
that other. bills should wait upon It.
Gregg Interposed, ' the' suggestion that It
might be well .for' the house to work
through the days next week, on all other
matters! and ?put. In the ' nights on the
revenue bill.'.'. Recess" was then taken for
noon' without further action on the report
or motions. . " ' ' '-
Immediately; ot 'Converting In the after
nooif a motion by Joses of Otoe, embody
ing Gregg's ldak,vwas . carried and con
sideration of the revenue bill, which was
placed on grDeral ,BI, will begin Mon
day -at J-p. . m.'k knj .continued during even

A report ifrbra the 'iudictary committee

the resolution by Knox gt Buffalo, provld
Ing for the appointment of , a committee ot
Ave to Investigate the so-called Bartley

nigh as the rate may seem It would appear
that the comnanien are able, to na.v verv
small dividends, and It Is the opinion of your
committee that legislation controlling rates
at present would be a mistake, but that
any legislation Intended to foster competir
tlon would be proper and desirable.
We-will further suggest that the Question
of rates be left for adjustment between the
parties granting a franchise and the In
stalling company.
A motion by Sellers of Platte that the
house begin March 9, meeting at 8 Instead
of 10 a. m., was defeated by a vote of 46 to
The house In committee of the whole
recommended for passage H. R. 823. by

the subject of a,serles of fierce debates and
Dr. Hathorn,' In gaining Its reoommenda

sult ot a most persistent fight.
Loomfs filed on the land as a homestead
In 1872. He was given his first and second
papers by the government. But after ob
taining his second pspers the government
notified him that' the land had been turned

Whether It Shnll Bo by Welsht or
Measure Is Problem for Strike
'WASHINGTON, March B.ltepresenU
tives of both sides of the coal strike ques
tion appeared before the anthracite coal
strike commission today. '
The main question discussed was that of
determining the beat method of payment
for coal mined and hinged upon the point
ss to whether settlement shall be made
with. the men' according to weight or meas
ure. The bearing today, which wa's not
open to the public, foreshadowed an early
report of the, commission to President
Roosevelt, aa It Involves practically the
only Issue which remains unsettled In; the
minds of the commission.
The following statement regarding the
meeting Was given out by the commission
late thla afternoon: ' " r "
-TheJanthraclt"''Coat strike"' commission
met $oday ,,r the purpose ef n, consultation
with the counsel, and representative of ths,
miners and the coal .operators, to enable
the commission to avoid any mlsunder-
to ,he mtttters under its ron-
: sideratlon, not
to submit to the bartles
any conclusions reached by the commission
or any form of award. One of tha difficult
subjects' with 'which the commission has
had to deal la that of paying for coal by
weight rather than by car. Various meth
ods have been suggested as a substitute,
some of which, were not -touched upon at
length in the voluminous testimony before
the commission. - -
It was necessary, therefore, for the com
mission to meet counsel on both sides and
have a free and frank talk with them.
Such a consideration could not have taken
place had it been open to the publlo. No
additional testimony waa asked tor nor of
fered. The commission is hard at work upon
Its report, sitting lats at night and milk
ing avery endeavor to reach a apeedy con
clusion, but lust when a decision 'can be
reached cannot bs stated.
