But they Insist that they have lost all of

the last with at lewt eight republicans and
/.Kty five democratic members against
Hatina. They even say that they expect to
get Manuel of'Montgomery and Griffith of
Union back on thcli uldo again before Tilts-

that while Senator Haiiiia's forces have been

Since the epidemic of local Indignation
meetings and the crusade for a general gath-

WASHINGTON , Jan. 9. The clxll service
debate which has been In progress In I'.io
house dilt Ing the past neck will bo con
cluded orobably en Tuesday , when the vote
will bo taken on < i motion to strike out the
expropriation for the' ' maintenance of the
commission , The motion Is foredoomed to
defeat , S3 that the present contributions to
the literature of this vexed question will
eventunto In nothing.
The debate , however , has served to define
the position of the members. It has
proven that comparatively few of the ene
mies of the system arc willing to go to the
length of voting for the repeal of the law.
It Is claimed that a preliminary canvass of
the republicans of the house has developed
orer 100 on that sldo who are willing to vote
for a modification of the ( aw. If these could
bo combined with the democratic exponents
of the law , many of whom are
against the entire law and desire to ECO
It wiped off the statute books , they could
probably command a majority Hut < iulte a
slumber of democrats whose hostility to the
law Is outspoken say they will not vote for
mollflcatlons of the law which will simply
result lu the removal of democrats from
ofllcc and the substitution of republicans
They orcfer. If It Is not to bo repealed , to
sec the law stand as It la. The entlro popu-
llstlc strength will oppose e\cry motion to
repeal or modify the law.
After the legislative , executive and Judicial
appropriation bill la out of the vva } cither
the agrlultural or diplomatic and consular
bill will bo taken tie and an urgent defi
ciency bill will bo iead > , ao that the remain
der of the v.e-eK , except SaluriMy , set apart
for pa } Ing tribute * to the memory of the late
Representative Mllllkcn of Maine , will be oc
cupied vvlKi appropriation bills.
The diplomatic and consular bill Is very
likely to cauto extended dctato on the pend
ing foreign questions Cuba , Hawaii , the sit
uation In the orient , etc , any one of which
could bo made a fruitful theme of discus
sion. It Is understood to be the Intention of
the democrats to force the republicans to
deflna the administration's position toward
Cuba's Indepeuden-c during the debate.
SENATE FORGCVST.
Interest In the senate proceedings for the
week centers In the promlssd debate of the
treaty for the annexation of Hawaii , which
will bo taken up on Moncluj. Senator Davis
has given notice liiat ho will mo\e an exec
utive serslon of the senate for consideration
of the ticaty each d > y until the trcatychall
ho finally disposed of. The first effort on
'Moilay ' will be to secure open doors for the
debate. This motion will be made by Senator
Pettlgrew of the opposition , but there Is no
likelihood that It will carry.
The prevailing op'alon Is that the debate
will not bo prolonged on the treaty , but
theories as to the length of time vary all
the way from a week to a month. The op-
pcsttlcn to the trcuty acserta that It has o
dUipoiltion to prolong the discussion owing
to Its confidence in its ablllt } to defeat the
treaty. It claims thirty-live votes In oppo
sition and states twit among these there will
bo moro than one republican. Senator Mor-
rlll adheres to his original determination to
oppose the ratification resolutlca , and ho Is
preparing a speech on that side of the ques
tion. The i amo cf Senator Money ca the
democratic oldo Is added to the list of supporters -
porters of the treaty , making five democrats
who will certain ! } fa\or annexation. Senator
Duller , populist , whose position haa rot Jiere-
toforo been generally liown , today an
nounced hlmeelf as oppcsed to ratification.
It may bo accepted oa true that if the
opponents of annexation become thoroughly
convinced that they ran secure the one-third
\o o accessaiy to accomplish that end they
will allow the vote to como wltuout delay ,
reserving any dilatory tactlco to which tiey
may ho disposed to resort for use In connec
tion with the consideration of the joint reso
lution for annexation , which would follow
the defeat of the treaty. This rcbolutlcn
would caly require a majority vote , and It
la conceded on all hcnda that the annexa-
tlonlsts ( lave the necessary majority.
In open scrsicn tae calendar piesen o many
EUbjcc's that ipiy receive attentloi , Includ
ing especially the Immigration bill and the
census bill , the latter affording a basis for
speeches upon the civil service. Scnatoi Falr-
Lanks has given notice of a speech on the
'
Immigration 'bill on Tuesday , acid Serator
Butler will speak on hlo resolution providing
for the election of federal judges by the
people some da } during th week.
Discussion of the financial question Is also
among tiio probabilities.
Senator Davis Is expected to open fie
Havvullcrt debate with a set speech on Mon
day , but there Is a pos lbllltj that he will
defer his main argument until later In the
discussion.

Hermann of the general land of lice lias pre
pared an adverse report on the house bill
providing for the granting to the respective
elates of 11 the arid lands within their ureas
upon condition that the land shall bo re
claimed for ngilcultural purposes by the
states. The report sets forth that under
the Carey act of 1804 congress made grants
to the btatcs wherein arU lands are sltumed ,
not exceeding 1,000,000 acres to each , e.ud up
to this time but few of the btatcsravo
availed themselves to any extent of the ben
efits of the law. The ttutes which Ciavo
taken llmlteJ areas are : Wyoming , 99,097'
acres ; 'Mon'una ' , 10,632 acres ; Idaho , 58,000
acres ; Utah , 2.21,143 acres , and Washington ,
S3,451 acres.
In place of tbo bill proposed the commis
sioner expresses the opl'ilon that the Carey
law bet so amended as to extend a more sat
isfactory guaranty to capital as an Induce
ment to Invest In the reclamation of arid
lands under the law , but iho disapproves of
the effort to enlarge the quantity of lands
which din now bo acquired by the states.

to prevent the brokcrago of tickets Issued
by Interstate railroads Is called , Is having
a much moro serious road to travel than
was originally thought , It passed tbo taut
session of congress -without a hitch , but
failed to reach a vote In the senate. At

pected no action and made no fight ; now
they are here la ( ull force and a powerful
lobby , represented by A well known Chicago
broker , Is running In oil sorts of Influences
to bear on members against the passage of
the bill. The bill Is supported1 by all the
lallroads In the country and-b- ' many of the
commercial bodies , but Its passage Is greatly
doubted , In view of the fight'that ' Is being
put up by the ticket brokers. It Is not
likely that a separate nnri-scalplng bill will
be passed , and that It anything In that line
Is adopted , It will bo A part of Senator Cul

Pcstofllce dernrtmcnt , nnd eepeclally the third
asslijunt postmaster general , ta having consid
erable dlniculty over the designs for the
memorial stamps to be Issued for the Trans.
mlsslpjlppl and International Exposition at
Omaha 'this 3 car.
ID response to Invitations sent out by the
postmaster general there have been a great
many replies received. Upwards of n hundred
designs Invo been submitted and many moro
suggestions , which arc considered excellent
la character , do not potat out where engrav
ings or pictures suggested arc to bo obtained ,
The Postofilcc department feels that It
cannot go to the expenseof having designs
made specially for thcso stamps ; first Le-
cauc < o the time Is entirely too short In which
to prepare the designs and second because
they might not so nearly fill the require
ments ca engravings or palntlugs In ex
istence.
Chief Clerk Davis of General Merrill's of
fice eald that ho had received from n gentle
man located In Nebraska , a number of mast
excellent suggestions , but cannot find nn > -
thlng In the way of engravings or pictures
that would fill the bill. This gentleman sug
gested that the first stamp should bear an
Indian tepee or the aborigine as he oxlficd
til the transmlssiivtlppl country before the
advent of Hie pioneer. The second stamp
should bear a picture of the pioneer with his
train of wagons penetrating the great Ameri
can desert. The third stamp should portray
the home of the settler , his rude cabin , sod ,
or log hut , as the case might be Upon the
fourth ho thought a proper picture would
be the great fields of corn or grain ripening
in the summer sun with modern reapers , and ,
lastlj , as ithere are but five- stamps to be
made , a composite picture of the cities of the
Transmtsslsslppl region , with railroads and
all Iho commercial Interests which luvc
sprung up within the last half century. Mr.
Davla thought ho could secure ono or two
of these suggestions fiom Frederick Iteming.

etampe will represent a buffalo grazing on

picture of one of the famous scouts of the

torj. Some of the suggestions received urge
a picture of the bridge across the MlssLMlppl
at Rock Island , the first bridge that over
spanned the "Father of Waters. " In all of the
suggestions , however , there has been a total
falluie to tell where engravings or plclurcs ,
as said before , are to bo had and this necefl-
sailly makes the work of the department a
laborious one. Involving considerable thought
before any definite selection of plcturea Is
n cde.
Prof. F. W. True , executive curator of the
National n'.useuni anl rcpiesentatlve on tiio
Beard of 'Management ' of the Transmlsslcslppl
Expcs-ltlon , makes the following pertinent re
marks in reference to the pending bill con
cerning certain administrative features of tfto
exposition bill : "It is veiy evident that con
gress has no f jith In the ability of the board
to manage Its o\vn affairs und it seems to
bo the general Impression that the bcmJ
is making a haul of some kind , whereas all
we get is mere glory. It has been claimed
that the Nashvlllo exhibit vvus rot properly

for as they ought to have been , > el I have
no hesitancy In sa > ing the government ex-
: lhlt vvau toe most li.tcrratlng anl most ably

do the right thing we will place an exhibit
at Omaha tint haj never before been equaled
and I sincerelj hope that this amendatory ac
tion will occur soco , a.s It takes time to pre-
piro an exhibit. I have formulated some
plans , but they are only In embrjo , for
no'hlng can bo done In mj department until
cverj thing Is settled. I can say , however ,
the exhibit will bu ctitliely different from
that at Nashville. "

Active preparation are being made at the

Iho mob's work Is nol jet flnls'icil , and will
enl } be completed whe-n four moro Indian' )
have been dealt with In the same manner ni
McGelsoy and Simpson. The cltlmis' posse ,
was scouring the country fee- the four men
when the mcshcnger left Maud , and It Is
probable that at least part of iho quartet las
b } this time- paid the penalty decreed by the
maddened populace.
KILL A DKFnNSnLHSS WOMAN.
The crime which led to t'.io bucnlng of the
two mi'U was committed on last Thursday.
Markus McGolsey was the owner of same )
propert } . On his land lived a white family
named Simmons. Dm Ing the absence of the
husLand on Thursday McGolsey went to the
Simmons cabin and asked for n drink of
water. Mrs. Simmons was at homo with her
four small children. The Indian was given
the water and ho t'acn asked for a saddle.
On being refused the saddle McGolaey grabbed
the woman , who had her laby lei hoi nrmn , '
and dragged her out of the houso. When the *
woman attenpted to run way the Indluti
sel7cd a rifle and dealt her a doadlj blow on
the head , crushing the skull. Tao woman
died Instant ! } .
The murdered woman's husband did not
icturn homo Thureday evetilng , and Iho chil
dren were unable to remove the body Into the
house from whcro It had fallen In the jard.
The llttlo ones stood up and watched tlielu
mot'icr's corpse until the bitter cold coin-
rolled them to iclax their vigil nnd sock
shelter Irom the weather In the cabin. Dur
ing the night Iho body was almost devoured
by hogs.
The news of the murder .spicad crt'ldly
Friday morning , and the whole populace for
twcnly miles around was aroused. About
Iwcmly Indians wcie arrested. Iho oldest
child told the crowd that MeGolsry was thci
guilt } man , and u posne of twenty determined
men went to airest him. Simpson wiu at
McGelsey'B home * when the nos.se airlvcd nnd
both wcro tnlctn Into custody. A rope wa
( cocurcd and the prisoners wore strung up
by the neck. 'On being let donn and given an
CTOortunlty to talk , both confessed to the
crime and named four others whom they de
clared wcro equally guilt } . It developed that
the Indians desired to get rid of ccrta'n ' whlto
settlers , and that McGolsey had been hired ,
to do the murder.
DECIDE ON IMMHDIATn ACTION.
Pcoscs vvero nt once ficnt In search of the
other four Indians , and It was decided to
have a wholesale lynching ra teen au they
could bo captuiud. i\s night canio on , how
ever , and the other four were not captmcd ,
the citizens changed their plan nnd deter
mined lo dispose of McGolsoy and SlmpBoa
without fuithcr delay.
The feeling was to hitler against them
lhat Iho crowd would not be satisfied with
thu ordinaly method of lnehlng < and it wuu
voted to bum them at the stake. The vlc-
lllms vvero accordingly chained lo a pcsl oalc
Uco. Fcnco rallfl and dry wood vvcio Ihen
plied high about , them and In n few mlnutcu
tlm Indians were wrapped In roaring flames ,
whllo the timbers crackled beneath thulr
feol.

Never a word did Iho Indians tiller whllo
being roasted alive. They apparently saw
they vvero powcrlcuH to ic&lsl , und cnduicd.
their lots llko stoics.
The crowd was composed of not over
thlrly men , and the work was done In a quiet
but tlioiough and determined manner. 1'csuos
continued the search for Ihe other four
Indians and II Is very probable that If cap
tured they will bo dealt with In a llko man
ner.
