Made Special Order in Senate After
Howell and Grace Have Row
' Upon Floor.
THOMPSON IN FOR DRUBBING
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, March 23. (Special.)
The action of Plate Chairman W.
H. Thompsoo of the democratic state
committee in coming to Lincoln and
taking a hand In the Omaha annexa
tion fight was made the subject of
public charges by Senator Howell of
Douglas county on the floor of the
senate this morning, the senator
charging Grace of Harlan, who had
made a motion not to concur in the
house amendments to the annexation
bill, with carrying out the orders of
the state chairman.
Howell for the space of about twenty
minutes fought desperately to kill the
motion. All that the Douglas county
delegation wanted was time, ha said.
They didn't know yet wether they wanted
the amendment or not.
I'ssar Influence t haraed,
Howell openly made the charge on ths
floor of the chamber this morning that
"undim influence had been brought to
bear by tha anH-annexatlonlsts." He did
not specify wtiat the Influences were, but
his Implication ws plain.
Tho day waa finally saved for the an
nexationists by a motion by Kohl of
Wayne to make the motion not to concur
In the houso amendment a special order
of business for Thursday morning at 10
o'clock. The motion carried.
If the bill goea to conference, Its friends
see dangers ahead. It Is rumored that
the committee appointed would probably
be antl-ennexatlonlat in its) make-up.
Feeling In Senate.
On the other hand many members of
the senate. It la feared? will never con
sent to adopting the house amandm
which Deal of Custer this mprning
termed a "miserable subterfuge." Boal
voted for the straight forcible annexation
aa It left the senate.
The Parrlott amendment provides for
the submission of tho uestlon to a voqte
of the entlro electorate affected.
flrsrs Resents Charge.
Grace of Harlan resented Howell's
charge that he had received his inspira
tion against the bill from Chairman
Thompson. He resented it at the top of
his voice and before Howell got through
talking. For awhile the two of them were
going It together and the senate "chamber
took on the aspect of Bedlam.
Then Hoaglnndof Lancaster farther
riled the Ire of the Harlan county mem
ber by objecting that outside Interests
should dictate to the Douglas county
delegation; that It should not have a little
time to make up Ira mind aa to what U
wanted to do.
not Rrnod-M laded.
Grace insisted that be - waa not an
"outside interest;" that be was vitally
Interested as he bad a relative In South
Omsha. Then Howell strenuously snored
him for not being a broad-minded enough
man to let this Interest go by the board.
Home of his dearest friends and relatives
were In Houtli Omaha, ha aald.

county men in seeing no reason "why
