Tt Oovcrnor Stone's ears did not burn
when he rotlred to tho executive couch to
night ho la tough, very tough. Never In
the history of this state. It Is quite certain,
has Its administrative head received such
a roasting .as was given him to-day. Many
ot the sen.itors have been smarting1 under
the Imputations cast upon them In that
portion ot the governor's proclamation call
ing them together which referred to tho
lobby. They were mad clear through, and
they took sweet revenge to-day.
Gray, of J.ispcr, led In the assault. He
said that the man Stone was now denounc
ing (1'helps) had made him, and that he
owed every olllco to which ho had been
elected to Phelps.
It was a day of .sensations. Jn the morn
ing the house slapped tno St. Louis com
mittee of safety In the face by tabling Its
petition for tho pas-ago of Its elections bill
Then, with great Impartiality, It tabled a
tesolutlon epiesslng conlldcnco In the
house labor committee. A little later the
house adopted a resolution nsklng the gov
ernor to empower It to renew the school
textbook contract and half an hour later
reconsidered that action and killed tho
This resolution failed of adoption simply
because Kyler, of St. Louis, who intro
duced It, had Inserted a. whereas which de
cl.ned that the bill had saved the state
SMJ0.0M. Of course, even body knows the
bill did nothing of the sou, and as the
house In regular session had refuseil to
pass a bill creating a new school commis
sion, it did not propose to put itself In buch
a ridiculous position. It was the Intention
of tho Republicans to refer tho resolution
to a committee, strike out tho objectionable
featuies and then adopt It, but the Dcano
ciats forced a vote and It was killed.
The senate spent all the forenoon and
nearly three hours In the afternoon discuss
ing the .Mill-lobby bill. Shortly after i
o'clock, by a vote of 13 to 13. that body re
fused to order tho bill to engrossment.
Thai is probably tho last that will be heard
of an anti-lobby bill In tho senate.
'Iho amendiiunt making newspapers
amenable to heavy line for carloonlmr or
ampooulng u member of the legislature, to
Inllueneo his vute, was killed early in the

puipon of lnllueniing his action concern
ing any measure bifoie. him, was liable to
Hue and imprisonment.

Hi nator Gray challenged any senntor on
tho floor to point nut u tlmo when Stouu

When the house met this mornlncr Mr.

against the passage of the safety bill and
three or four telegrams concurring with

Atchison, Kas , May 8. (Special.) Copious
rains during the past eight days hive
dunged tho crop prospects of Northern
Kansas. They were lato for wheat and tho
acreage. Is Miiall, hut tho above country
will produce, with continued favorablu
weather, tho largest crop of oats In its
history. Tho probabilities aro that more
coin has been planted than ever belore,
and tho pio-spccts. wcro never so bright as
they aro at tills season, ltell ible Informa
tion gathered from the stations along thu
.Missouri Pacific's Central llranch railway
shows that fiom ono and one-half to two
and one. half inches of rain have fallen dur
ing tho past tight da)s. The road e-itends
uiw miles into Kansas, and nearly ever)
section of it was vblU'4 by more or less
Prom Atchison to Greenlenf. a distance of
IP) nillles, wheat is in excellent condition,
hut the acreage Is smaller than usual.
There, Is also some splendid wheat on thu
Prosser extension. In N'u kolls county, N'eb.
Considerable wheat In other sections, which
was unpromising a tew ueeks ago, was
plowed up and put In oats 'and corn. This
accounts for the lurgel) lucreastd acreage
of these products. Along the txtreme west
end of the road, In Phillips and Norton
counties, where continued dry weather
has been disastrous to crops for several
veurs, the late ruins have been unusually
heavy. The people an, ever) where In bet
ter spirits, than they have been for a
N'oriuau fit) flection.
