file H. R. 0. approprtatlna- 2.000 for a fish
hatchery In Cherry county, which waa In
definitely postponed on recommendation of
the finance committee, the vote afterward
being reconsidered. The motion to place
the bill on the sifting file was fought vig
orously by Epperson and King, and was de
fended by McKesson of Lancaster.
The appropriation of $15,000 for a Ne
braska exhibit at the Seattle exposition
wis given an endorsement In the aenate
thla morning by a vote of 18 to 19 on a mo
tion by Patrick to Indefinitely postpone the
bill. The committee had reported it for
. general file, but the Sarpy county senator
sought to have t killed without Its going
before the committee of the whole.
Epperson of Clay opposed the motion, de
claring that as Washington' had ap
propriated this amiAint for the Transmls
alsalppl exposition Nebraska is In honor
bound to return the compliment Aldiich,
Wlltee and Burns also opposed the motion,
and Thomson. Sibley and Patrick ' spoke
against It. The failure of the motion to
oerry Is an Indication that the appropria
tion will go through the senate as it passed
Lancaster After Appropriations.
Th attempt of McKesson of Lancaster to
secure a reconsideration of the vote by
which H. R. 200, carrying an appropriation
it 1J0.0OO for the purpose of making teat
borings for oil and ooe.1. Is taken by some
of the senators who have been fighting for
retrenchment tn appropriations as an Indi
cation that there is a combine among sen
ators Interested In appropriations that have
ben turned down to reinstate them. Lan

Curns are organizing the members in a log
rolling attempt to get some of the defuuet
Lancaster county suffered heaviest when
the senate Indefinitely postponed the bill
providing for an appropriation of $180,000
for buildings at the state farm, and It is
charged that McKesson's attempt to re
vive the oil bill was a part of an agreement
entered Into among the senators to revive
some of these bills. The attempt In this
cr.se failed as the house refused to recon
sider the vote.
Another Indication that there Is such a
combination was- found I In the fact Mc
Kesson took the leud In the fight to rein
slate the bill providing for a fish hatchery
In itierry county. In this he waa success
ful, and It is believed this action was used
as bait to draw some of the northwestern
senators to the support of an attempt to
revive the state farm appropriation. An at
tempt will be made, it is believed, to re
' verso the action of the aenate In cutting
down the salary appropriation for the
Peru Normal school. If enough of the

Grand Jarr to Indicted"
SAN FRANCISCO, March $0. Two .sen
sational pieces of eldnce In the bribery
graft were adduced before the grand Jury
today. Three members of the executive
board of 'the Pacific States Telf-phono
company, E. S. Pillabury, Homer 8. King
and Timothy Hopkins, testified that tlioy
had no knowledge of the alleged bribing
of supervisors to vote against the award
of a competitive franchise to the Home
Telephone company, and that If bribery
was committed It waa "up to'VVice Prcrl
dent Glass, whom the grand Jury already
has Indicted bh nine count to explain.
Another member of the executive board,
Percy 9. Morgan, made the same denial
of knowledge several days ago when on
the .Witness stand. The second aenaation
came when Eh 8. Plllsbury, who Is a di
rector of and attorney for the Pacific
States Telephone company, testified that
Abraham Ruef. the Indicted political boss,
has been for more than two years on the
private payroll of that corporation and
has been paid regularly $1,200 a month.
This, said Plllsbury, was more than the
salary paid himself. When he discovered
this, he testified, he objected to the com
pany and his own remuneration waa In
creased. Kerernl Witnesses Examined.
The following witnesses Were examine!
by the grand Jury today: E. 8. Plllsbury,
Timothy Hopkins, Homer S. King, W. J.
Kennedy, cashier of the Pacific States
Telephone company; John 8. Cannon, Jan. ;
ltor of the Mills building, who was In
terrogated as to his knowledge as to the
alleged paymept of supervisorial bribes
by J. V. Halsoy In behalf of the Pacific
States company In a room In that build
ing; Dr. Fred Eaton and Mlas Mary Ryan.
The latter was Halsey'S itenographer ut
the time of the alleged bribery and Is now
employed as stenographer by the South
ern Pacific comptny. Miss Ryan was the
last wttnes so fthe day. ,
Louis Glass caused considerable surprise
by appearing In the witness room.- He
stated that he had come of his own volition.
Assistant District Attorney 1 Heney and
Special Agent Burns contradicted this
statement flatly. They said that Glass had
been subpoenaed, but by . mistake. He
was not called before the grand Jury, but
was excused a few moments after his ar
rival. Ruef Trial This Week.
District Attorney Langdon said that it
the plans are not altered the grand Jury
wilt hold one session every day next week,
and the trial of Ruef on the French res
taurant extortion cases Will be actually
begun next Tuesday and stead 111 proceeded
with.' Id this event, said Langdon, It Is
likely, that h and Special Prosecutor
Hiram L. Johnson will appear against
Ruef, while Heney ' engineers the investi
gation before the' grand Jury. Langdon
said that today's proceedings before that
body fad been "very satisfactory."
' He stated that additional Indictments will
be returned as a Result ' of the telephone
investigations, dui ne aia nit Know now
oon nor' would sajr against whom. The
Inquisitors .contrary to expectations did
not get through with the Pacific states and
Home Telephone companies this weak.
Those Investigations wlU be .carrier over
Into April. Heney stated that the sub
poenalng of Edwin T. Earl and Dr. John
R. Baynes of Los Angeles was done with
out-his knowledge, that, neither of them
has yet started for San Francisco, that
Mr. Haynes has been temporarily excused
and that In hl Heney's opinion Earl and
Haynes do not know much In connection
with the Home Telephone affairs that would
be valuable to the grand Jury.
rrogram of Grand Jnry,
The grand Jury program, as far as any
program Is observed In that body, proposes
the commencement early next week of an
exhaustive investigation Into the alleged
bribery of supervisors and other administra
tion officials and politicians by the United
Railways, the San Francisco Gas and Elec
tric company and the Prise Fight trust, in
the order named.
Mayor Bchmlts today Issued a statement
denying the charge made by the prosecution
that he Is endeavoring by vigorous means
to cause the resignation of a certain num
ber of supervisors in order to fill their
places with men who would frustrate any
attempt on the part of the supervisorial
board to revoke those public service fran
chises, which they are accused of having
awarded as a result of bribery. The mayor
said, however, that some of the local labor
organisations are using their influences to
cause resignations of supervisors who. It
Is announced by the prosecution, have con
fessed their guilt to the grand Jury. The
mayor said he had no official knowledge of
such confessions and that If such knowl
edge comes to him officially he will at onoe
take steps to effect a change In the board's
Rnefa Plan of Defease).
Abe Ruef today Intimated In an Interview
that his defense against any Indictment
arising from the alleged confession of
Supervisor Gallagher will be that Gallag
her's testimony. If he had testified, is with
out corroboration and cannot be supported
by the testimony of other witnesses.
In a second Interview, Ruef for first
time since his capture at the Trocadero,
denounced Ms prosecutors, declaring that
he Is being kept In private prison In viola
tion of all law and precedent aad announced
that he will produce in court affidavits
sworn to before his capture, proving that
the acts of his prosecutor are part, of a
conspiracy. Ruef claimed also that the
reason that every newapaper In San Fran
cisco Is denouncing him as a grafter and a
rascal Is that these newspapers either are
privately subsidised or were unable to wield

WASHINGTON, March $0. Secretary
Garfield has found It necessary to Inform
Governor Frants of Oklahoma as he did
Governor Brooks of Wyoming, on Thur
day last, that he can make no exception
In favor of Oklahoma In resrect to the
order for the removal of fences on the

the governor today.
In his appeal for delay Governor Frant
said that proctlcally all of the publlo do
main tn that territory had been absorbed
by the land grants to the prospective state
and he urged that the lands could be
rented to better advantage If the fence
order was not enforced. He added that
"cattle men using these lands are ready to
pay rental to the state at once tf the order
be held not to apply to Oklahoma, but
wants to know Immediately If the order Is
to apply so as to remove fences and herds
and abanddh pasture. Such abandonment
would cause large loss to the educational
funds of the territory and stnte. In hi
reply Mr. Garfield said:
I cannot exercise any discretion a to the
enforcement of the fencing laws. The pub.

exactly the same as elsewhere.

(From a 8taaT Correspondent.)
DE8 M0INE8. March 30. (Special.) Tha
doctors' and lawyers hsd a tilt in the sen
ate today over the anti-past bill. The
lawyer won and the bill wa passed. The
senate committee had made changes In the
bill so that a railroad company could Issue
passes to one lawyer In each county ex
cept where there are superior courts or
where there are division stations not county
seat and Also that there might be Issued
passes to two doctor In each county.
Senators Elerlck and Mattes championed
a movement to remove the discrimination
and put the lawyer on a par with the
doctors two In each county. Senators
Toung and DeArmand opposed. "This
brought out some sharp queries a to why
the doctors' should Oppose giving the law
yer the same measure of discrimination
as themselves. On a roll call the lawyer
won and It . was dsclded that two should
have passe In each county.
A number of other minor amendments
