curred in tho senate to day over the reso
lution to investigate tho International re
ceivership livery mcjiber but one wanted
the resolution to pass but there were a
number who wanted to amend first It was
thought by some that the preamble was a
direct thrust at Juuge McCord and a
breezy debate took place over a motion to
strike it out Then Mr Kimbrouuhs
amendment was agreed to and on a motion
to reconsider some very biting speeches
were made Mr Carter thought it strange
that senators were so willing to investigate
railroad men judges and attorneys but
crawlished when it was proposed to
ask what a great daily newspaper had been
doing He also made some very sarcastic
remarks about what he seemed to think
solicitude on the part of Burney to keep
the Aransas Pass receivership from being
Burney said he was perfectly willing to
have that receivership looked into butdid
not want to weight tlii resolution with it
Speaking of ICearbys amendment provid
ing for invest igat ion of all the rei eiverships
in the state Burory said it was done to
sidetrack the resolution
Mr Kearby arose excitedly and said if
the si nator meant to say he was trying to
sidetrack the resolution he stated what
was untrue
The debate was decidedly interesting all
Heceivers Bonner and Campbell Attor

As It Passed tlio House Is Satisfactory to

Special to the Oazette
AtsTiw Tnx April 1 The land lease
bill championed hv Baker of Tom Given
provoked an earnest disciasm in the house
I this morning that reminded members of tho
I free grass debates of previous sessions
i The bill as presented provided for a gradual
j reclassification of graing lands with a
I view to encouraging setlement of tho lands
1 and its ultimate vvitUdiivvl from tho lease
system It ermitted the leasing for ten
years of all public free school and
sity lands except in Andrews Gaines
Terry Yoakum and Winkler counties
west of the Pecos river and betweeu the
I Colorado and Iecos south of the Texas and
I Pacific railroad excepting Concho
i loch Coke Stirling Glasscock Midland
Ector Tom Green Howard and Martiu
counties All other such lands should be
leased for not to exceed live years
Mr Browning offered to amend allowing
no exemption and reijuirkig that no such
lands should be leased for a period longer
than five years
Mr Brown of Grayson opposed it because
it would involve a radical departure from
tho lease system under which stockmen
now use the land and pay a large revenue
to the school fund Hecontendedthit the
adoption of Ihe amendment would virtually
kill the lease system as valuable leases
would not be taken for Ave years
Mr Curry and Mr Williamson aso op
posed the amendmeiit vigorously and Mr
Baker thought it not advisable unless the
bouse should decide to abandon the lease
system altogether The amendment failed
27 to M
As passed the bill limits all leases to five
years except of lands west of the Pecos
and south of the Texas and Pacific between
the Colorado and Pecos exempting only
the counties of Concho McCulloch Coke
Sterling Glasscock Midland Ector Tom
Green Howard and Martin these counties
coming within t be five year limit
The bill provides that all future leases
shall be made subject to the right of any
settler to enter ujioa any part of such graz
ing land and erect thereon substantial im
provements of the value of SOI within four
months afier making his application to
hase said land for agricultural purposes
In such cases a pro rata credit shall be al
lowed the lessee on his next years rental
In the counties affected by tho five year
limitation the lease system is viruary
abandoned as the conditions imposed make
i unprofitable and the result is a virtual re
classification of ai the school land north of
the Texas and Pacific railroad as well as in
the counties mentioned south of it and a
throwing open of the free school and
university lands over that wide area as
present leases expire to the public for act
ual settlement
The bill ts entirely satisfactory to the
fforts and good management of Judire
Commissioner McGaughey heartily in
dorses it

consul here knows nothing of the reason
for Baron Favas recall Sjieaking of tle
possible outcome of the disturbance at New
Orleans the consul said I dont know
what reparation my government might ask
provided the United States fails to take anv
action in the rnatti r Crtainly the stnd
taken by the governor of Louisana has not
been diplomatic The first moral repara

kind is the arrest of the leader of the mob

The New York Times on Italy
New York April 1 The Times says
If the Italian government wishes to mako
itself the defender and vindicator of the
persons who were killed for the assassina
tion of Cnief Hennessey and if it wishes to
constitute itscit a claimant for damages in
de- their behalf it must first assume certain
I clearly defined obligations For one it
must demonstrate ihat tho victims of the
mob or some of them were Italian citizens
That iioint is yet in doubt Next it will
t have to answer the ijuestion whether any
or all of these men had a record of
i nalitr and law breaking in Italy whether
they were or were not members of a band
of murderers aid assxs ins in their native
country and u nether their native country

I cheaper than hanging Shaking of this

of exceptional gravity which tooK pla e ui

Jccts of the kirg of Italy who were con
fined in the prison of that city were mas
sacred by a crowd under the leadership of
was to be held am mg others young ing to the Italian press and people It i3 j two American citizens After having form-
teiiows entered and threatened to turn over t sua incomprenensible to them how a local ally protested against the untustifiablo
the tables The janitor threatened to rh
tise them if they did A man interfered
and a light followed in which a pistol and a
knife were pulled but not used A number
of biows were exchanged The whole
aflair occurred in the dark and it is a won
der that some one was not seriously hurt
The leaders were arrested
At a meeting held to night by the di
rectors of tho Dallas opera house
they decided to reject all bids
for the lease of the same and
run the house themselves in the interest of
the stockholders The house will still be
managed by H Greenwall son and brother
and remain on their circuit as heretofore

Iowerful than the president himself and
sacred from his interference Their under

The long delayed and almost contemptuous
response of Governor Nicholls to the secre

they could not or would not condone tho
inactivity of the Italian minister under the
circumstances They argued that if he had
asserted himself as he ought tbe American
conduct of the local authorities which were
evidently recreant to all their duties on
that occasion I reserved to tho government
of his majesty the right to demand such
satisfaction as he might think proper
Since the occurrences in question consti
tuted a patent violation of tho stipulations
of the treaty in force between our two
