LINCOLN. March 25. (Special ) Appor
tlonment seems to be about the only Im
portant question upon which the present
session of the Ir-glHlnture has made no
decision of any kind. The Placek leglMn
tlve bill, which has passed the senate for
legislative redlstrlctlng, la now before the
house, but will probably be materially
changed before It goes through. The re
publicans are not pleased with It and will j
probably do their best to make It a fairer
bill before It becomes a law.
The Albert judicial apportionment bill Is
also through the senate, and as It Ib of less
Importance politically nad does not bear
such evident traces of gerrymandering It
will probably not cause a fight.
The congressional bill, also drawn by
Placey, Is certain to meet with trouble In
the house. In some ways It Is worse than
the legislative bill and the house repub
licans are determined to change it If possi
ble. A scheme of amending It has been
drawn up by two dry democrat, Quacken
bush and Norton, helped by some repub
licans, and the changes may be engrafted.
Committee 1 Charg-e.
the fact that of the committee of fif
teen which will discuss apportionment
there are slt republicans aud three dry
democrat c-nt. of fifteen members may
have some effect on the outcome.
The bill as drawn by Placek would move
the congressmen now In congress Into
other districts. Sloan, holding his seat
from the Fourth district and living In Fill
more county, would be thrown over Into
the Fifth district, where he would have
Congressman N orris to beat. This would
have the effect of giving Norrls aa a re
publican a very strong opponent and It
would also give Placek hlmaelf a clear
field In the Fourth. It Is thought that
congressional ambitions may be disturbing
The Quackenbush change would throw
Latta from the Third district Into the Sec
ond and Sloan Into the Fifth.
The present First district Is made up of
Cass. - Otoe, Nemaha, Richardson. Pawnee,
Johnson and Lancaster. The Placek bill
will amend this by throwing In Gage

Minister of Promotion (fomemo) Manual
Calero, or Andreas Aldasaro.
Minister of Justice Demeterio Bodl.
Minister of the Interior Mmuel Macedo.
Minister of Communlcsllon and W"oi"ks-
The fact that General Reyes has been
sent for by the government Is a festure
of the situation which, when It was of
ficially confirmed today, went far toward
talmltiR the fears of those who dreaded
a I ' -i a I upBet of the administration.
Senor Creel, who has been ambassador to
the I'nlted States and also governor of the
state of Chihuahua, has been very un
popular with the masses, not only because
of his close blood relation with President
Dial, but through his Immense riches',
which, it has been charged, were Increased
by means of the heavy taxes he Imposed.
Some color Is given to the rumor by the
faot that the hotbed of the present revolu

In the midst of all the speculation regard
ing the composition of the next cabinet,
popular opinion seems to agree that Jose
Yves Llmantour will be made the head of
the ministry, with all the powers of a
premier, and that In such a post he will
practically be ruler of Mexico, with Dlas
