Tom tern lire Faction Happy. W hirl ili- business Interests as a rule are deploring tlii passage of the neaaure and hoping that the governor will not fall ta veto ere jubilant over Its pu WASHINGTON, April 3.-On behalf of tha Waters-Pierce Oil company, former United States 8cnator John C. Spooner has filed in the supreme court of the I'nlted Rtates a petition for a rehearing of the various cases brought by the state of Texas against that company which re rentty were decided against It. These In clude the cases Involving the appointment of a receiver for the company and the one ousting the company from the state and Imposing a fine of $l,M9.min for violation of the Texas anti-trust lawa. The principal reason for the petition Is that the fine was so excessive as to deprive the oil com pany of Its property without due process of law. In support of this contention, attention Is called lo the fart that In the record of the case It was claimed the oil company was making as high as 700 per cent on Its capital, but It is aet forth that while this might be true, with, reference to the $410. 000 capital stuck. It was not true with refer ence to the IW.OO0.O00 of the assets of the company. Much stress Is laid upon the fact that a large portion of the fine was based upon the Texas anti-trust law of Imposing a penalty of ll.KOO a day after that law had been repealed. "We therefore submit," says the petition, "that It Is little short of confiscation for the state to have neglected to enforce the act of 1R9S for seven years and after tha act had been repealed and the amount of the pealty r Mil red to SfiO per day to Insls upon a verdict for fl.600 per day for 1,033 days."

The Bee's tele phones rang ail day with Inquiries as to tha governor's action. It wsa not a case In which simply saloon and anti-saloon Interests were concerned, but one tlutt ap pealed to people generally. On the streets, in hotels, business houses and. of course, saloons, men discussed it and sometimes with a little more vigor than decorum. Douglas county's three senators, Ran Dtti, Howell and Tai.ner, came In for severe denunciation In many quarters, some whrre thy had friends before. The general view Is that these three men did much to bring about the passage of the bill with the amendment applying to Omaha. It waa frequently urged that the original bill waa contrived by some of the country members over whom this trinity had ridden rough-shod throughout the session as a get-even proposition and that when the trio fought It so bitterly In Its original form the Omaha amendment waa tacked on to rub It In. Fluslness men In sist that had it not been for the stupid arrogance of these senators the bill prob ably would never have been made to apply to this city. Cosaaterelal Clea Active. For more than two hours the executive committee of the Commercial club dis cussed the daylight . saloon bill and then gave notice that whatever the club did would be strictly "under cover." The meeting waa well attended. Some warm discussion waa Indulged In as In bated by loud voices now and then which crept over the doors, under the cur tains and out through the windows. The members were considerably agitated. It waa common talk about the club rooms that dreams of making Omaha tha "con vention city" went glimmering" and that already onn of the big conventions would b lotst to Omaha If the Nebraskans thought a metropolitan city should be run on such radical laws. It wss said the secretsry of the order having the sr rangements In charge, had wired early and expreuaed tha belief that the convention would not want to meet In Omaha or any ether city which waa governed by auch restrictions. The Commercial club will do whatever the executive committee decided to do without public announcement and It may not be known for some time which side the club Is on. Hotel U Meet. Owners or managers of twelve of the leading hotels of Omaha met at the Rome Saturday afternoon and discussed the hill and tha best method of combating what they characterised as an evil and of In ducing tha governor to veto It. Kach nun present haul an Idea, but no resolutions were adapted and all finally decided that the best plan would be to swoop down on tbe governor at Lincoln In force and take the capltol by storm. , A special train has been engaged to leave the Burlington station at t a'clork Monday morning with enough coaches to accom modate 1,000 men or more and the hotel men urge upon every man who lias the Interests of Omaha at heart to take a day aff and go to IJncoln and "help save the day." Those at the hotel men's meeting declined to say who Is responsible for the sdocuU train, giving out the Information that several clvlo bodies have combined to aecur It However, the epeeisj Is an as sured fact and that It will pull out of tbe station with, at leaat 1.000 business, pro. feastonal and working men Monday morn- Ing Is the hope of those back of the enter prise. Rome Miller presided at the meeting of tha Omaha Kraal Mini association. Others present were: Ralph Kitchen of the Pax tody of Slierlif Rsntom and a deputy. He waa about to board the car when Douglas Tsylor drew the revolver and leveled It at the prisoner. Johnson Stack, who stood near him, grabbed the gun and forced his hand down toward the ground. After a struggle Taylor waa overpowered and the gun taken from him without being fired. During the atruggle the old man shouted. "It me get at him. Don't keep me away." Afler the train had gone Douglas Taylor and the father of Sheriff Ransom had a scene, but no trouble resulted. Douglas Taylor Is the father-in-law of Bert Taylor. Taylor a ill be held at the penitentiary In Lincoln until the May term of court A motion for a change of venue probably will be filed by hia lawyers, who have in dicated they will plead Insanity. While feeling is high tha danger of mob violence Is ccnsldered remote. NEBRASKA TO SHARE FUND Enlisted Ctrensria of State Mllltla Will Give the Depart ment 98,648. CHICAGO.

Aa epitome of the bills passsd by tha late legislature will be found on pages 8 and of the Second Section of this number of Tbe Bee. (Prom a Staff Correspondent.) i.irvt,n, April 3. (fpoclal.) After a final legislative day of sixty hours, the thirty-first legislature of Nebraska ad journed a half hour boeforc noon today and the members started home to face their constituents, but wherever possible they did not go via Omaha. The work of enrolling bills occupied the clerks until a short time before the con clusion of business and for the twenty four hours preceding the fall of the gavel there was practically no business to trans act. Members of the senate Introduced con gratulatory resolutions of thanks, and ex tended to their colleagues tokens of friend ship in the way of photographs and mem bers of the house. In more violent mood occupied themselves tearing up tholr bill files and scattering the result of the state's printing bill on the floor of the assembly chamber. The pussing of the 8 o'clock closing act was the principal toplo of discussion on the floors of the two houses and In the lobbies, while telegrams and letters of pro test poured In upon the governor. The Douglas county senators and members were In a cheerless mood and the levity of the final hours did not arouse them even to passing Interest in the procedure. A dele gatlon of thirty business men from Fre mont arrived at noon to see Oovernor Bhallenberger In protest against the bill to buy the Wayne Normal and were given an extended hearing aa soon as the execu tlve attached his name to forty measures that had been dumped upon him from the halls above. Large Crowd at Obseqnlee. An unusually large number of members witnessed the end of the session, due to the care of the sponsors of the saloon clos ing bill that their entire forces should 'be available to meet any move to alter the record on the bill and leave a loophole for legal attack. Ordinarily not half a doten members are In at the death, but in each house It would have been possible to s cure a quorum almost any time until final adjournment. Efforts to reconsider the sction In the senate were duly considered laat night aa soon as the vote was taken but with only thirteen senators In oppo sltlon to the bill there was no chance to succeed and none was made. Number of Bills Passed. The legislature passed a total of 2M bills and In addition the governor haa vetoed one "the measure repealing the law per mining saloons within two and a half miles of the limits of military posts. Two years ago the legislature passed and the governor signed 306 bills and fourteen bills In addition were passed and vetoed after the session adjourned, with one veto sub' mltted during the session. Far the greater majority of bills went through at the lust moment without consideration In commit tee of the whole save in a perfunctory manner. A spirit of good feeling prevailed as be tween parties to the laat, and In the house this was manifested by a motion to thank Represent alve Klllen of Gage for his cour tesy aa floor leader of the minority party during the session. The final motion fpr adjournment waa made In the house by ex Speaker Nettleton of Clay, and in the sen ate by President pro tern Tibbuts, senator from Adams. A more substantial evidence of this waa manifested In the presentation of a gold watch and chain to Speaker Pool the senate yesterday having made a prea ent of a cut glass punch bowl and set to Lieutenant Governor Hopewell. Representative Shoemaker tried to shy one at Chief Clerk Cone by reducing th amount cf allowance for preparing th house Journal from P. 300, in accordance with action of Mr. Cone when representa tive In the laat session, who then attacked the allowance of S1.200 to Chief Clerk Bar nard on the ground that It waa excessive. The resolution was hold up under the rule that It must go over a day under the rules. The senate, at the request of Auditor KXsWMmw. 'mi tin. i (Continued on Second Pago.)

D WIGHT CERTAIN IT WILL CARRY Attorney for Heirs of "ally, the Noted Rosebad Ootlavr, Seek, to ' Seeara Allottnsenta at Land -for Thane, (From a Staff Correspondent.) WASHINGTON, April . 8pecial Tele gram.) Conferences among the leaders on both sides of the house were the order of today. It being generally conceded that general debate on the tariff bill would terminate at noon on Monday, when the house committee will throw their Own "little Joker" Into the ring by fixing an hour upon which the vote shall be taken for the passage of the Payne tariff bill and providing for record votea on frcu lumber and free hides. While the majority and minority 'whipa'1 have been busily engaged In rounding up their sides for a battle royal on Monday the so-called republican Insurgents and the Fitzgerald mugwumps have been holding secret caucuses with a view of ascertain ing their strength when the previous ques tion is ordered upon the adoption of tha rule. In the last twenty-four hours there have been more changes among house members than you "could shake a stick at." One faction of the republican party would have a man for a little while because he was disgruntled over some particular schedule and then the other side would have him because the leaders refuse to make good their oromlses. So numerous were the changea. according to hearsay, that it re quired the party whips to keep a card Index of members of the Vouse in order to approximately gauge the temper of the house membership. The whip of the majority, Dwight of New York, stated tonight that there were enough votes assured to adopt the rule when brought in on Monday. The house will meet at 10 o'clock on that day In order that general debate on the bill may be closed when provision will be made to begin consideration of the bill under the flve-mlnute rule. Borne Opponents Placated. The eighty-odd amendments which the ways and means committee reported to the Payne bill late this afternoon, tt is thought, will clarify the situation so far as sectional opposition goes to certain features Of the measure, but it will not satisfy those who are against the countervailing duty on oil and who believe there should be an additional tax on beer. The opponents of Kinkaid Roasts Proposed Tax on Tea and Coffee Nebraska Member Says, However, He Will Vote for Payne Tariff Bill. WASHINGTON, April 3. Eleven members were In their seats today when the house of representatives met to further consider the Payne tariff bill. It wss the smallest attendance of the special session and demonstrated the fact that interest in the debate had practically disappeared. Mr. Sparkman, democrat, Florida, opened the discussion with an earnest plea for a re storation of the Dlngley rate on lumber and the Imposition of a duty of 8 cents a pound on all cotton imported in the United States.

Insurgent Democrat Replies to Crit icism in the Commoner. NEBRASKAN RASH AND IGNORANT Mays Cnarare that He Is Not Democrat hoald Hare Been Made When His frneerbes Were Selected fop tmroisr tvoewVnrata, WASHINGTON. April S.-Representstlve John J. Fitzgerald of New, York, who gained prominence by having adopted hla amendments to the house rules, and who at the same time brought down upon himself and twenty-one followers the wrath of the so-called regular democrats, issued today the following reply to William J. Bryan's criticism of his action, which recently, ap peared In the Commoner: 'With his usual rashness Mr. Bryan rushes in where angels might well fear to tread. Ills statement that I am not a representative of my party would have come with better grace if madn when my speeches were being selected as demo cratic campaign documents in the last two national campaigns. It would have been more convincing if he had marshaled In cldents In my trn years service In the house of representatives to justify his assertion. If Mr. Bryan means that I am not a representative of the democratic party as democracy has been understood and professed by himself, I shall not chal lenge his statement. My political convlc tlons and beliefs are more In accord with the democracy of those men who twice made possible Mr. Cleveland's election aa president, than with the latter-day rad icalism of the west. "As to the personal references In Mr. Bryan's statement to my sense of pro priety and respect for my party. I have only to say that If the democratic party hd given me three opportunities to become president and I had failed as dismally as Mr. Bryan, even If 1 did not have the sens" to do so the obligation of gratitude to ny party would compel me to remain silent about matters of which I was grossly Ignorant."

The e , ? n' . M- Supposed Kidnaping Case Cleared by Finding of Body FLINT, Mich., April I. Instead of hav ing been kidnaped when he disappeared from home here on February 27, 10-year-old Harold Moon fell through the Ice of Thread pond and waa drowned. V The long search for the boy which has been prosecuted in all parts of the country ended today when his body was found floating on the surface of the pond by Burt Robson, who had been searching for It there for days. A pair of skates fastened to the little feet bore mute testimony to the manner of the lad's death. The small hands were still covered wHh the mittens which the boy wore when he went through tbe Ice. Suspicion developed soon after the little boy's disappearance that he had been kid naped. Am the search about the pond whers he had gone to skate failed to reveal any traces of him, the suspicion grew. Reports came from several different directions that a lad answering his description had been seen In company with a man. From I'on- tlac, Mich., came a report that a boy of his appearance had been seen in a freight csr wtih a rough looking man of whom he seemed to be In fear. Rewards aggre gating tl.SuO were offered for the boy's re turn. Circulars were sent broadcast all over ths United States. Tumen N. Moon, the boy's father, has prosecuted the search for his son far and wide. He was supposed to be In Chicago today Investigating. It was Harold's 17-year-old sister Msrlna who first learned today that the missing buy had not hen stolen, but was dead. She had gone to the neighborhood store and beard the first re port there of the finding of his body. The girl ran to her home and broke the news to her mother, who for five weeks has been enduring the strain of not knowing whether her son waa dead or alive. Heart-breaking as the news was. the mother expressed a feeling of relief to have the strain of weeks removed. A tele gram was sent Immediately to Mr. Moon, notifying him of the finding of the body. CHICAGO, April l.-Truman N. Moon, father of tha Flint boy, la In Delavan, Wis., In company with a detective, to which place he was lured by a letter demanding SMI ransom for his lost son. Moon received a letter at his home In Flint a few days ago from lJelavan, In which the wrtter stated that he had the lost boy In his possession, snd thst the father could recover him by going to Delavan and depositing SoOO In the mouth of a cannon In the city park. Subsequent developments show that the scheme wss arranged by a person who had read the details of the kidnaping of Willie Whllla of Sharon, Pa., that he sought merely to extort "easy money" from a frantic father. The father Immediately went to Chicago and put the cess In the hands of a detec tive agency. A plan was devised to rspture the alleged plotter. Accordingly a detective was sent to Delavan yesterday afternoon to arrive in aroordance with the directions of the letter. Today the news of the finding of Hsrold Moon's body was nSelved by ths dstectlve agency and It has since been trying to get into communi cation with the detective and Mr. Moon at D the tariff legislation wiTi .
