Senator Millard arrived1 home from Wtih
Ington Saturday morning and will remain
here until next Saturday. Miss Millard did
not accompany him home, preferring; to re
main In Washington rather than undertake
the fatigue of po brief a visit.
."The session has b en an extremely busy
one thus far," said the senator, "but the
real business of the session will come after
the holidays. As retards local affairs, the
United States district attorneyship matter
will not be taken up until I get back to
WaHhlngton. The whole Nebraska delega
tion will participate In the selection of a
successor to Judge Kitxter. We will adopt
the Iowa plan, whereby the entire state
delegation goes Into caucus in the matter
of appointments, and will be governed by I
the rule of the majority. There are some J
fifteen applicants for the position, and I I
fim free to admit that most of them are !
from Omnha. However, the matter will not j
come to a crluls until after my return to
Washington. Assistant DiHtrlct Attorney
A. W. Iane will remain in charge of the

"The mutter of the appointment of a col
lector of Internal revenue has not been
taken up and the probabilities are that K.
a. mepnenson will hold over. No reap- i

has filed hi new bond the Inference follows i
that he will continue for the new term as
his own successor. His work has been very I
catlHfartory and there Is no ppeclal call for

Warner as United Slates marshal has re
ceived tho popular approval. We all re
gretted very much to see both Mr.
Mathews and Judgo Baxter go, but It
could not be helped. The Department of
Justice and the president were determined
upon their removal and there was nothing
the Nebraska delegation could do to change
that determination. The reappointment of
the deputy marshals was an evidence they

pleasure, and In fact I was led to Infer
their work was very satisfactory to the
department. I wish right here that you
would say for me that I shall have nothing
to do with the appointment of the addi
tional deputy. That is a matter that lies
entirely with Marshal Warner. He must
make his own selections, as his deputies
are responsible to him, and he must be
given free rein to make such a selection as
he chooses. We have been besieged with
a host of applications, but cannot consider
them at all. That matter is entirely in the
bands of Marshal Warner.
Two Federal Districts.
"There is a reasonably fair show for tho
division of the state Into two federal dis
tricts, the North and South Platte dis
tricts. It Is very probable all of Hall
county will be Included In the North Platte
district, as 'part of that county lies south
of the I'l:itte. The entlro Nebraska delega
tion Is a unit on the proposition and I am
of opinion It will be accomplished. At all
events wo shall do what we can to that
"In reference to tho Panama canal mat
ter, I rather think the commission will be
retained. However, a committee has been
appointed to Investigate the expenditures
thus far mado and as to what disposition
has been mado of the funds thus far ap
propriated. Including the t0,000,000 purchase
money paid to France. The only contro
versy that arises Is over the apparent ex
travagance. Much of this session of con
gress will bo devoted to canal expenditure

"There Is a prospect of a bill being re
ported in the scnato relative to railroad
rato regulation. In fact, such a bill is
now being formulated and will be reported
to congress about Fobruary 13. This bill
Is one that will prove satisfactory to both
the public and the railroads. No proba

matter with the attorney and the result
was the letter to tho Inspector, telling hlra I
