Indianapolis, Ind., March 9. The reg
ular session of the Indiana legislature
practically ended Saturday night, though
bills may be passed wit h the appro va of the
governor today. The session continued till
midnight, and during the last hours bills
were rnshed through in great haste. It
whs after 4 o'ciock when the World's fair
bill came up for final action in the house.
The senate had refused to cone ar in the
bouse amendment reducing the appropria
tion from $100,000 to $45,000. Tie confer
ence committee recommended concur
rence in the action of the senate making
the appropriation $100,SSO. Tha report
was read in a low tone of voice by the clerk
and the speaker quickly put the question,
which he declared accepted on a viva voco
Got a Reconsideration.
Some of the opponents of the measure
tried at the time to have the action recon
sidered, but failed. Later another mo
tion to re consider was made by Repre
sentative "Wright, and this carried, after
which the opponent of the bill moved
noa-concurrer.ce in the action of the sea
and the motion prevailed by a snail ma
jority. A second conference was ordered
after tie farmers rejected the fimt report,
and the result was a recommendation of
$75,000. The bitter fight made on the
former report was not repeated, the com
promise being accepted. The senate re
cedes from all its amendments, a:jd so the
bill becomes a law.
Transactions in General.
Most of the day was occupied in consid
ering appropriation bills. The one pro
posing an extra allowance of $2), 000 for
the State institute for feeble-minded was
defeated. The general appropriations
were largely reduced in the Benatc. The
allowance for state militia was out from
C.00O to 3,000. Bills were p issed as
follows: Making it unlawful for Kink or
other corporation officials to act as nota
ries public in any matter which the back
or firm is interested; permitting corpora
tions to borrow money and bond-, giving
mortgages on real estate and franchises;
providing for a temporary loan of $700,000;
appropriating money for the expenses of
the state officers and institutions for the
fiscal years 1892 and 1833. A resolution
was introduced and adopted rec. ting the
fact that it hss been found impossible to
devise a method of taxation that would
compel railraads to pay their fair share of
taxes and instructing the state t ax com
missioners to prepare a bill and report it
to the next meeting of the gereral as
sembly. Made a Startling Discovery.
The remarkable discovery wt.s made
that two years ago the legislature had
passed a bill authorizing the appointment
of a state natural gas inspector an a sal
ary of f 1,500 a year, but by $me oversight
the position had never been fillsd. The
senate at once passed a bill reducing the
salary to $1,200 a year. The joint conven
tion of the house and senate met and
elected Montgomery Marsh, of Hancock
county; James Sinely, of Putnam, and T.
W. Hayes, of Adams, as trustees of the
Richmond tsylum. The Republicans
were present and refused to vote, this
action being in support of the pos tioa as
sunied by Governor Hovey that the legis
lature had no right to either remove or
appoint these trustees.

He Wasn't Going to Quarrel Over a Fickle
Wabash, Ind., March 'J. In the western
part of this county there is a family named
Benner, consisting of the father and two
sons, "Pink" and "Pod." About a week
ago ''Pod" married a young woman in Mi
ami county and bronght her home to do
the work for the family, but no sooner
had she seen "Pink" than she fell in love
with him. When this came to tho knowl
edge of Pod he proposed a divorce at once
so his wife could legally wed his brother,
but the law does not sanction divorces on
such grounds. Then Pod did tho heroic
aud voluntarily renounced all claims to
his spouse in favor of his brother Pink,
Hud now Pink is in possession cf Pod's
wife, and Pink, Pod "Puppet" and old
man Benner are living under one roof,

"Sent t'p" for Loving Negro.
Miss Flock was committed to the instl
iutlon in December, 1M, from Oyster
Bay, at the instigation of her relatives,
one of the main causes for her commit
ment being that she was deeply infatuat
ed with the negro; had accepted his atten

application for her diclrirge was on the
grouud that the sentenca was cruel and
evere and likewise unconstitutional.
Squires has retained able counsel to prose

Washington Crrr, March 9. For some

Whether the spelling of "ripper" was in
tentional on the writer's part is of course
not known. While the Major attaches
no importance to the letter, he read it to
the different police lieutenants, and tho
police are trying to find the writer, who
is thought to be a crank.

Washington Citt, March 9. Indian
Commissioner Morgan, in reply to a ques
tion of Secretary Noble as to his views in
the matter of disarming the Indians, says
in brief that there are many good reasons
for doing it, and those unquestionably
hostile should be deprived of their guns.
But it would be unjust to disarm the
friendly Indians, as well as a great
hardship. They use their arms in killing
cattle and in hunting, and besides, al
though he is- sorry to say it, he does not
believe they would be safe without arms.
