LINCOLN. March 14. The contest "be-j
tween Bishop Bonacum and Father Murphy i
began with the attempt of Bishop Bonacum j
to toeroe the pastor of St Andres-'s col-
gregation at TecumBeh. Neb., Rev. 'W. Mur-
phy, to compel his parishioners to contrib-
ute a large sum of money, arbitrarily as
sessed on tbem by the bishop, for the erec
tion of a costly Episcopal palsoe
at Lincoln. Cardinal Satolli enjoined the
bishop from erecting so costly a palaLie, but
the bishop spurned the injunction.
Ordered by the bishop Eev. Murphy took
tip sevcra.1 ooHectlons in Bt. Andrew's
church and appointed committees to collect
outside. But the amounts oowtribnted were
not satisfactory. Then tbe bishop issued
against Rev. Murphy a decree of expulsion
from the diocese. Murphy appealed to the
apostolic delegate at Washington, who or
dered tbe hiabop to rescind his decree.
The bishop thereupon filed charges of
lrreverance and failure to collect moneys
sgainst Rev. Murphy, and summoned him
to answer in the curia of the diocese of i
Lincoln- Rev. Murphy filed a challenge for
prejudice and also an appeal before Joining
ia the issue.
Tbe bishop ignored the challenge and ap
peal and condemned Rev. Murphy, issuing
against him a decree of suspension and ex
comm uni cation.
The biabop began proceedings to oust
Rev. Murphy from the use of the church and
its projierties. About six different suits
took place is tbe various counties compos
ing tbe First Judicial district, in all of
which tbe bishop lost.
At length a mandamus came down from
Rome to the apostolic delegate to have tbe
metropolitan curia of Dubuque, la., convene
and bear tbe case, allowing to either party
an-sp peal ram its decision.

Caaliaa Teavard Kt
The Evening Times tonight has tbe fol
lowing ts say about Mr. Mercer's candi
dacy for director of the cetiBUs: "If David
B. Meroer, former representative from Ne
braska, is named director of the eensus,
his appointment must be charged to the
District of Columbia. Tbe delay of the
president in filling the vscancy caused by
the resignation of Director Merriam has
caused much speculation as to whether the
president has found it advisable to charge
such an important office to District politi
cal accounts in their present condition.
Mr. Mercer is practically without Nebraska
support in bis candidacy for office. Neither
of the Nebraska senators has aBked for his
appointment. In fact the delegation which
called on President Roosevelt to urge the
selection of Mr. Mercer was conspicuous
for their absence of Senators Millard and
IHetrich. Representative Burkett was the
only Nebraskan in the party w hich visit 2d
I the White House and urged Mr. Meroer
"Kehraak&ns regard Mr. Mercer as a res-
I ident of the Columbia district. His defeat
I was due chiefly to tbe fact that he had not
I lived in Omaha for many years. Although
i Mr. Mercer maintained that hat home was
i in innanw. nia ulu.uj inu am i;ve mere,
j and his vanits to that rity were short and
infrequent and were usually limited to
times when politics demanded his atten
tion. "Thirty-one members of congress accom
panied Mr. Mercer to the White House.
These men represented widely scattered
states. They called before tbe adjournment
of congress. Many of tbem were interested
in public buildings which were in charge
of the committee of which Mr. Mercer was
chairman. Sine the adjournment of con
gress and the expiration of Mr. Mercers
term the enthusiasm of some of these ad
vocates is said te have cooled sadly. Again!
this lues of congressional support, however,
Mr. Meroer can now weigh the Indorsement
of local business interiata. It is agreed
in Washington that few oen in congreas
have ever done mor for the District of
Columbia than Mr. Mercer and many of his
friends is the district are now urging the

LINCOLN. March 14 ( Special ) In tbe
fortj-a'.x days that tbe Twenty-eighth Ne
braska legislature has been in session nine
teen new laws hsve been added to the
statute books fifteen bv tbe houee and four
by the senate. In all twenty bills have
passed both bouses, but as the governor
vetoed one, only nineteen have been en
acted into laws. None of these nineteen
bills can be classed as measures of vital
importance to the s ate at large. Most of
them are local measures. Four affect
Omaha alone the Gilbert city election and
water works bills and the Koetter free
textbooks bill and his bill to cut the bond
of the school btrd treasurer in two.
With fourteen days of tbe sixty remain
ing and all the important work yet to be
done, it is apparent that the rest of tbe
session muFt in more eventful than that
which is over. The revenue bill and tbe
appropriation measures are yet to get
through both houses. Tbe railroads' vic
tory in tbe house Friday on the section of
the revenue bill dealing with railroad taxa
tion disposed of the most important part
of tbe revenue bill and makes it substan
tially cerain that it will pass. The re
mainder of tbe bill ought not to occupv
much time in debate, yet it is not thought
tbe measure can leave the boue before
Thursday. Tbe sections to be dealt with
are those per siting to the esBessment of
real estate, duties of assessors., coun:y and
' state boards of equalisation, sale of real
estate lor taiw and the county treasurer's
oertinc.ate for tax sales.
Oar (aalrnt A brad.
Tbe section increasing tbe number of
member of tbe Stele Board of Equalization
: from three to five promises to occasion
I somewhat cf . contest, fnder tbe present
law the governur. auditor and state treas
urer comprise this board and tbe bill adds
the secretary of state and commiBBianer
of public lands and buildinga. There is a
rumor that the railroads prefer it os it is
now and will seek to amend the bill, leav
ing off the two additional members pro
posed. When Jhe appropriation Mils eome -up
there is certain to 1 acme attempts made
to amend them. Tbe Lancaster county
delegation will endeavor to tack on an
item of t.'iO.MW for tbe purchase of tbe
building and contests of tbe Conservatory
of Music in Lincoln, now owned and con
ducted by Prof. Kimball of tbe State uni
versity. In this they will meet with
formidable opposition. The chances are
they will be defeated, but tbey are almost
certain to make a sturdy fight.
changes will be made in the bills, probably
without any contests. The governor has
recommended additional appropriations for
improvement of conditions at tbe Grand
Island and M il lord soldiers' homes and
will recommend an appropriation of tlft.
