&PBIKUFIELD, June i-'i Tho business
done In tbo two bouses of the Illinois leg
islature was not great. In tbe senate
Mahoney trio J to get up a labor arbitra
tion bill, but could not suspend the rules.
Salomon had a park bill for Chicago that
be was no moro fortunate with and all
attempts to introduce bills were objected
to and defeated. In the house Kitiniller,
Republican, introduced a resolution that
tbe bonso elect a speaker pro tern and
introduced a row at thelsamo time. A
motion to table was carried by the He
publicans 75 to 44. A motion was car
ried for a committee of five to examine
the finances of the state and see whether
tbe appropriations wore sufficient. Both
houses adjourned for the day.
Democrats Co Into Caocas.
The Democrats had demanded the ayes
and nays on the last motion In the bouse,
and there was great confusion, and much
indignation among the Democrats when
the speaker dcolared the motion carried
and appointed only one Democrat on the
committee and ho nut in tbe city. As
soon as tho house adjourned the Demo
crats held a caucus to decide upon what
policy they should adopt regarding what
was termed Republican tyranny. Tbe
caucus was called to order by Chairman
Morris, In doing this bo said ic was
thought fit to cull this caucus to doter
mine what course the Democrats of tho
houso should pursue. The legislature
bad now been in session throe day and
nothing had bean done in the way of
work. It looked from the action of tho
speaker as if tho Democrats were not
going to receive any recognition at tbe
bunds of tho Republicans. It was
thought they had better consider some
line of policy for adoption.
Democrats to' Examine Finances.
Crafts took the lluor when the chairman
hod finished. lie thought in the first place
that Democrats should moot tho effort of
tho Republicans to show that the govern
or's proclamation was not warranted.
Tho commiUoe appointed by the speaker
to look up tho financial affairs of the state
Was one thut ho believed would make a
misleading statement and falsify tbe facts.
The speaker had, with rare forethought,
uppoiuted but one Domocrat on tho com
tuitteo. And bo was out of the city. It
would be well, ho thought, if tbo Demo
crats should make a correct statement to
be offered us a substitute in tbe bouse. In
this way the facts would got before tho
people, lie therefore moved that a com
initlco bo appointed to formulnto such a
report. Tho motion prevailed, and on
suggestion of Jones of Cook all Demo
cratic members of tho committee on ap
propriations and finance were appointed
on tbo committee.
Arranged lor an Address to the People.
A cominitteo was appointed on Crafts'
motion todemnnd that some Democrat in
tho city be appointed on tho housa com
mittee. Tho uimmitto? went to soe the
spenker and found no diiTlcilty in secur
ing the chang?, Morritt being appointed.
All absent Democrats of tho house wero
ordered sent for. Crafts thought It ad
visable, in case a sine die adjournment
was decided on by tho Republicans, to ap
point a committee which should prepare
an address showing bow the Democrats
had bei:n cut off from all privileges ns
members of tho legislature by the action
of the Republicans. Ho moved appoint
ment by tho chairman of a cominitteo
of live members for this purposo. It pre
vailed ntul tho chair appointed Crafts,
Green, I'erry, Barrick'.ow and Bredne. A
committee of five was also appointed to
prepare a protest whenever the rights of
tho minority were abuse.l.
Say. lie Will Call Them ltaek.
The Republicuns in the legislature gen
erally refuse to believe there is any deficit
in the tax li vy and as to tho other mat
ters the governor has put in tho list, they
do not care to tacklo them, at this time.
anyhow. Several of them are most intricate
and dimcult problems, cl tho Kind In
which discussion develops differences.
But the governor is determined, it seems,
to have legislation. A coinmittoa of the
Democratic bouse caucus was told by tho
governor that he would call the leislature
again In a week or two if it adjourned
without acting on ail tbo matters be had
ACTION OF A REPUBLICAN C ICC Us
Adopts a Report Declaring There Is Jio
Need f jr Farther Tax Levy.
The joint Republican caucus reconvened
late in tho afternoon. Tho committee ap
pointed to investigate the question of tax
levy mado a lengthy report, which asserts
that tbe governor's statement as to a de
ficit is an error, and that after figuring
up all the points tbe total liabilities in
eurrcd by the Thirty-ninth general assem
bly are tlo.uHOOO, and tbe resources to
meet these liabilities 10,500,UO), leaving
balance above tbe liabilities of Wlo.OOJ.
This statement Is for the next two fiscal
year. In addition there will lapse into
the treasury sums amounting in the ag
girgate to MXi.OOO, making in fact a sur
plus Ol S7W.IAU.
Tbo committee reviews tbe governor's
claims at length; declares that when the
Democrats came into power there was a
surplus of 13.000,000, which by insufficient
tax levy they reduced nearly fs.uuu.iwu;
charges tbe governor with "false pre
tenses of economy," and closes with the
claim that there is no need for an increase
in the levy, and tbe recommendation
that no further action be tiken on tbe
subiect. The report was unanimously
adopted, but tbe caucus adjourned with
out taking notion on the question o: leg
DUBOIS OX TBE CLUB COXTSXTIOX.
Baja tho Reporta of Static re a Cleveland
WA3H13GTON, June & Senator Dubals,
of Idaho, has returned from tbe conven
Cleveland. He was one of the leaders ct
the fight made there for a declaration ia
favor of silver. He takes exception to
some of tbe reports sent out from the
convention as to the effect of the course
pursued with reference to the silver ques
tion and In discussing the matter said:
"It is very amusing to read some of the
press reports of the convention. Take
for instance the representation that tbe
silver men were in favor of tho 'Address
to the People,' of which so much has been
said, and that the gold men were opposed
to it. In this representation it isclaimod
that the gold advocates insisted on a dec
oloration regarding the currency question
if the leaguo should pronounce upon any
subject and that tbo silver men did not
want any declaration regarding tha cur
rency. -Ewy one who was at Cleveland
know, that this is an utter pervdrsion of
the facts. The silver men met before tbe
committee on resolutions was appointed
and instructed Colonel Trumbo, of Utah,
to offer a straight silver resolution and
agreed unanimously that they- would de
mand a plain and unequivocal definition
Irom the convention as c its position on
the currency question. They insisted that
the question should not bo ignored. In
accord anco with these instructions Col
onel Trumbo presented a free silver reso
lution lu tbe convention. Tbe silver men
wanted and insisted on a declaration in
regard to silver, and took tbo position in
tbo beginning and maintained it to the
end that the convention should tako a
position cither for ajninst silver.
' 1 be opponents of silver finally ngreed
to coufpromise by utterly Ignoring every
thing which looked like politics and by
declaring that under tho constitution of
the league they were debarred from giv
ing expression to any views. The silver
men mado no objection to this course, as
they were entf.x-ly willing to leave tho
mattor open until the mcetiug of the na
tional convention, where of courso tho
issue must bo squarely met.
Thcro vtcro strong free silver men in nl-
most every delegation present, and the
silver men generally wero well pleased
with tbe num. test growth of sentiment
for the restoration of silver shown by the
number of silver udvocates who were
there as delegates from every aectiou oi

William Hcrtel, an old farmer. It was

La Crosse, Wis., June SS The wild

gathered, in tho northern part of the city
last night to denounce the police for kill

themselves crazy and began to yell for
the blood of policemen. When Chief
Byrnov arrived thoy would not listen to
him, and it was half an hour before he
could get them quieted. Even then they
kept demanding the murdered man's
boJy. The police are puzzled. There is
no murdered man and no foundation for
the story, except that about four dnys
ago two tramp butchers Were ordered out
of town, and one of them resisting ho was
tapped with a billy, but not even knocked
down. A cominitteo was appointed and
