The senate got Into the mire nnkle deep,
h'c.ul clown, to-dny. Senator Peers, who
oven to bo cute, llrcd In a. resolution to
irljourn sine tile March 12, nntl movcil th.it
he rules be suspended and the resolution
Senators Kennlsh nnil Kline, opposed the
motion to stipend the rules nnil urged Hint
much needed legislation It yet to be acted
Senators Lyman and Yeater seconded the
adjournment revolution. No action was
taken at that time, however, and this aft
ernoon It was allowed to bo oer under
the rules until to-morrow. The matter
now stands this way: If the Democrats In
the senate desire to pass the resolution,
they cm do so, for they have the ma
jority and Jlcpubllcans will not as a body
lopposc It, for opposition would be futile.
The house would certainly pass It, In de
ference to the senate. Hut, In this con
nection It should be remembered that a
largo number of bills which are of general
Interest In the stnte, are jet to be passed.
Most of these oilglnatcd In the house.
Those appropriation bills upon which
the baldest light will be made, nro not
jet out of committee. Urlmln.il cost nnd
election measures are jet iicnellng. Until
something has been done along these lines
the work of the legislature Is Incomplete
land If appropriation bills are not passed,
the stnte h penal, reiormaiorj' anu eiee-mosv-nnrv
Institutions will be compelled to
go out of business. It follows, then, that
ir tno senate resolution 10 inijoiirn sine
die March 12 Is nlso passed bj- the house,
the senate will bo un.iblo by that date to
clear the calcndjr. Such a condition would
necessitate the Immediate reconvening of
the legislature In extra session. If that
should bo done, all bills lert Incomplete
would need to be" taken up de novo. The
bl.i me would rest with the senate. Sen
ators 1'eeis' resolution of adjournment was
le.illv of a buncombe character, but it Is
liable to Ret bejond hts control. In this
connection, It Is worthy of note that the
nconl shows that the house has Just
about discounted the senate in the volume
of work done. It la the custom for the
house to Initiate and the senate to adopt
sine die adjournment resolutions.
This morning the bill to allow the build
ins of a wagon toll road on the Winner
bride at Kansas Cits' easily passed. Un
less those who feel an Interest artverso to
this bill commence work at once It will
surelv pass the house.
The Remainder or the morning session of
the senate was devoted to the paing of
appropriation bills. There were no Im
portant amendments nor Incidents In this
Hoimo Prof i pilings.
Mr. O'Dell's monthly pajment bill failed
of engrossment this morning. No one voted
for It. One man voted against It. Thus

The tennto non-p.irtlsnti curator bill was

Inserted for tho purpii-p of preentlut? I ho

prosecuting attorney, prior to the trial,
shall digest and furnish to the defense tho
evidence of tho prosecution.
The bill, on tho whole, conteinplnted such
a sweeping cluingo from tho existing regu

Topeka, Kas., Feb. IS. (Special.) All day
long the governor has been pursued by np
pllcants for positions upon tho nppellito
com t. Delegitlons from each of tho six
districts have waited upon Coventor Mor
rill In the Interests of favorites. All have
bein courteously received, nnd all went
forth fiom the govemoi's olllco with ns
largo a stock of Ignoinnce ns to the prob
ublo outcome of the Judgeship light ns they
took In with them.
At noon the governor announced thtt he
would not send the nominations to the sen
nte until Frldny morning. At tluit hour
the governor stated that none or the pro
grammes mnjiped out bj- the outsiders had
received his sanction, nnd It is safe to
conclude that he alone of nil men knows
who will be the lucky candidates.
During tho das-, however. Governor Mor
rill took occasion to expitss some vigorous
opinions of the bill which created the ap
pellate court. Illicit of the six districts has
sent a delegation to the governor to protest
against the appointment of a Populist In
Hint particular district.
Whenever the governor found a member
of the legislature In n dclegitlon, he lound
ly criticised him for voting to pass a bill
which forces the governor to appoint two
Populists nnd then coming to him
to avert the evil from his own neck of tho
woods. To-das' a delegation from the Noi th
west district got a scolding for piotestlng
against tho appointment of a Populist out
thcio, nnd legislators who were In the
party took It to mean that the governor had
decided to appoint a Populist for their dis

a ftrt of the scheme In fad had It not
Ikhi that there aie two politicians out

It mnv be Interesting to know who havo

Hill, when Senator Mtuphv wns tlecled,
thus iliavvliig out .Senator Hill, who In
dulged In nil the bitter invectives nnd
sarcasm nt his command. Senator Mar
tin's language wns declared unparlia

withdraw, nnd In the exciting scene of
three hours the Rallory often violated
the rules by Indulging In upplnuse nnd
quite a number of excited witnesses to
tho scenes vveio taken out of the gnl

the ntiilk'iice wild, with senators ngl
tnlcd, some disgusted, pomp angry and
otlieis regiettlng vers much that such
Fci'iics should over be witnessed In the
senate. The usual toiinil, of nff.ilt.s to

when a bill passi il nllowlng J. W. Ads

This was when a Hepubllcnu senate was

giving a- history of the sen.ilnilul con
tests In various states which lesulted In
Democratic contiol of the senate. On

This cicited some mcriiment In tho
galleries, and Senator Mnrtln walked mii
oiHly over to Senator Uias ind then lo
the back row to Senator lllll. who bv
tills time had become very much agitated
also by a leference that Inn! hi en nude
to Ids ollbiil action In New Voik as

state senate. ici'Oi ding to his stie of woik
inanshlp. The Kansas nnd New York
senators neivously chitted a few minutes
when the KmihiiH senator picked bis way
tluough desks and chnlis to Senator
Coekiell and proceeded to show him the
printed document Intended to show his
side or the case. Meantime Seiutor Chiml
ler was iioundlng uw.is. The leiiilers of the
senate were getting very nervous as the
speech developed a national Importance,
and In It was soon illseovuunl to be an
niialgnment, bv tho tacts, of Democratic
treaeheiy lu Kansas, North Dikota nnd
New York, Senator Morgan cot .lip
for Interfering nnd Hslng to prevent a
continuation of the speech. It developed
that about the time thnt It diwne'd on the
leaders on tho Demociatio side that they
were getting u heavy shot they concluded
to try to prevent a communion of the
speech. Senators Hi as, Palmei and Hill
si lected .Morgan us the best in in lo nuke
the point of older, ami accorillniilv he did
so, but Mr, Chandler said that If they shut
him off he would continue It undei the
guise of speaking on an appropil itlon
lilll and, ns II appeared they would not be
ublu to evade tho lire', It was concluded
to allow him to proceed. The s itor
went Into the entire hlstoiy of the Kansas
lilnullnasj vvar, giving all data from day lo
das, ns it developed, with vote ami exaut
slilenient of the relations ot the Dun more
and Dougluss house, lie was liiteriunted
by Senator Fise. who was astounded nt

Daniels pi"sldlns over tho Joint assembly
that claims to huvo elected Martin al
lowed two members not belonging to the
Dunsmoro house to vote and ut the same
tlmo would not allow tha other inemhets
and senators, headed by State Sen nor
Hiker, to vote vvlun they dennml I to
do so. In eoune 'lion with this the t r itor
took up the North Dakota rase, where
Senator ltoach, in the senate at pies,
ent, had vcurs ago us a cashier ot the
(ituens- bank, left for tho WW. and
$23,000 disappeared from the b ink. It was
charged In the papers at the time and
nioru iccently, that he was an embcwlor
tu tho amount missing lu the bank, and
It also apiienresl according to the senator
that Senator Itoich did not come lo the

and referred to Chiindler ns not willing for

then look the llooi anil made the point of
order, olweiving that he hid the kindest
felling for the semlnr from Kansas, but lie
should not Insist upon ill-gr icing the sen
ate with such language. Ho would Insist
that he keep within bounds. To this Si n
ator .Martin unsweied that he would llot
take luck what he had said.
Tin vleu piesldent onlered that the lin
giiage used bv the senator be lead, and the
senate would bo allowed to decide win titer
or not Ihe senatoi from Kansas should pro.

The vice prildint nipped ungrlly and an
nounced: "The senator from Kansas will take his

do so by a vote of the sen ite "
In due I line, In the midst of tho general
confusion of galleries, senators, applause
and hisses, uml tho work of the eoorke,.pris
snatching bulsteious spectators out or the
galleries. Senator Frs said he bidleved the
senator fiom Kansas would llot couilnuo

wlthdiew his point of older. At tills mo

tup'ier was directed to tr.insciibo his notes,
and things came to a standstill, one mo.
incut there would be u general dlu mid
the next It was still as deith, with tho
hope of can lilim a possible vvoid that might
add to the situation The stenographer
hud probably spent a minute looking up his
notes, when Keiutor M irtln, lulf rising
and half st Hiding, observed that ho was
willing to npalugti-o to tho senate
"Vuy well, then." observed .Mr. lloir.
"I wlilulriw Hie point of onlu."
The senator was again allowed to pio.
eeed, but he had eouled down very much,
ami said Hut he did not want "In dltgiace
the senate," and lu this ivpresslon theie
was evident Hitcusm. but be held himself
duwii as best ho could, am) continued by
sas lug he would suppress his (emarks,
.is-lied thu pinion ot the senate, but us to
tliu opinions ixpies-ed of the senator fiom
New Hanipsblie, he would not change
them. This ended S nator Mai tin on the
scene, and Sennlor Chandler mose und
said that the senator Horn Kansas, while
having used much bad linguist, had not
shown whs he had or had not been elect
ed senator fiom Kansas. Ills enllio speech
ns affecting each and overs ono referied to,
had been taken from l stlmony b,'fore a
senate committee, all I coul 1 be found by
all as well as bs himself.
It has been mans seals since a senator
bus created u much of n stir In tho sen.
ute by Intcmpeiate languaiie as Senator
Martin. It was suggested at one thus that
he came very near being II red out for ex
cessive temper, while his case was bolus
(t ts not expected that there villi be a

unless the bud feeling of to-night might
