FINAL ROLL CALL IS DECISION
(From a btaft Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. eNb., March 11. (Spe

cepts the recommendations of Us
committee of the whole, made today,
and passes senate file No. N 2, the
Howell measure, which provide for
the consolidation of South Omaha,
llonson, Dundee and Florence with
the city of Imaha.
The bill went through the commit
tee of the whole only after a hard
battlo and a stubborn resistance
marie by its opponents. Amendment
after amendment was offered for the
purpose of submittinz the consolida
tion proposition at a special election,
but. they were of little avail, .the
friends of the measure, under the
leadership of Henry Richmond, ably
assisted by Miner, Chambers, How
ard, Larsen and others of the Doug
las county delegation, holding their
forces well In hand and refusing to
budge an inch.
II enter Away for One Vote.
Hunter stray ed from the reservation
long enough to get behind an amendment
offered by Broome, giving the people of
all the territory affected, Including
Omaha Itself, a chance to vote upon the
proposition, but when . that went ('own
with only five vote to supportl. he got
back in line again and voted for the bill
on all other propositions.
Barrett stood out against the bill to the
end and, though beaten at every point,
took his defeat good-naturedly.
The house went into committee of the
whole immediately ater caled to order
by the speaker, this afternoon, and on
motion of Richmond, Cronin went to the
chair. The first amendment offered was
by e'oott of Hamilton, calling- for a spe
cial election to be participated in by
the people of the territory to be annexed,
bu Kcott withdrew It for an amendment
covering the same proposition, offered by
Barren, calling the' election two weeks
after the passage of the bill.
Breome's Amendment Killed.
Then Broome got in an ameddment,
cal-ing for the election to be participated
in by- ail the people to be held at the
next regular election. This was defeated
by a vote of 93 to 6. The Barrett amend
ment came In for a general discussion,
the proposition of force being the point
at Issue. n
Barrett Speaks Against Bill.
Barrett was the main speaker iti sup
port of hla amendment, though Green
wait got In one of his characteristic,
speeches, which brought down the houne.
Peterson of Lancaster, mad the prln
ripal address in support of the bill,
though about a dosen others Joined with
The addresses appeared , to be along
the same lines, the speakers believed that
it vn only a question of time, when the
consolidation would come to pass and
that the quicker it was settled the bet
ter. The Barrett amendment was de
feated, 31 to 62.
C'onloy of Gage urged the Indefinite
postponement of the bill, and the
roll call showed the bill In danger of
tlcfeat down to the lart' six, but these
voted solidly for the bill and against
indefinite postponement, snd then the!
changes began to be inaJe. which flnallly I
landed the measure high and dry with
twelve votes to spare, the vote stand-
ing, 43 nays to 05 ayes, on the Indefinite
postponement of the measure.

affects the bill la one dealing with, the

Whether', the aotlon of -the captain oE

much discussed In official quarters today.
Assuming that the Frye's cargo was -net

to the Btr.te department against - the
British assumption to the right to secure
at sea food cargoes bound tram a neu
tral country, like the United Mates, to

was believed possible .that . Germany
might seek a middle course by adopting
the British view that goods shipped "to
