Yesteiday was a busy day for the news-gatherers , as three investigating committees sat and gave the dry bones a genuine rattling - _ tling up all around. In the house the committee en claims made a report , as called for-'by ' Moore's resolution After attaching letters and document ! from Mayor Boyd , the governor and others , the committee submitted this ' REPORT : There hiving been no provision made to defray the expenses of such an investigation or compel the attend ance of witnesses before ourcommitteo from the city of Omaha or elsewhere , the chairman of this committee on Monday , the 15th day of May , 1882 , wrote a letter to the mayor of the city of Omaha , requesting his presence before - fore this committee , and that ho bring ' with him such citizens as would be likely to know the facts in relation to eaid riot. That in respouse to said letter , said mayor wrote the following communi cation to the chairman of this commit tee , which ii hereto annexed , marked A , and made a part of this report. That a short time previous to the meeting of the present session the chairman of this committee was waited upon by Mr. Wnlah , the pres ident of the labor union at Omaha nd two other members thereof , and in the conversation then had they were invited to be present at the present session and also such other persons as they might desire to have present , and lay any facts before the proper committee which they might deem necessary in relation to said riot , but that they have not appeared at the request of the chairman of this committeo. The governor of the etato appeared before the committee and made a complete report of the facts which came within his knowl edge , and of the law which applicable thereto in writing , which is hereto attached , marked B and made a part of this report. In further compliance with said resolution your committee invited the adjutant'genetal of the state and Col. Colby to appear beform them and m ko a full and complete statement of the facts in relation to said riot which were within their personal knowledge,1 in response to which , said adjutant-general and said Col. Colby , appeared bolero your commit tee and gave a detailed statement of the facts as requested , which wora in eubstanco in relation to the call of the mayor of Omaha upon the governor as herein reported. That after the troops arrived at Omaha the mob con tinued for several days , heaping upon the Boldiera tno most Abusive and ob- Bcpno epithets ; also hurling clubs , sticks , etonos and other missiles at the eoldiori to ouch an extent that a collision and fight between the soldiery , and the mob seemed for several days imminent. That it was only by the moat patient forbearance and submission by the troops to these outrages that a battle , with the mob was averted. That finally by strict discipline , and firm maintenance- their position in protecting the peace ful citizens from violence the mob pave way and submitted to superior fore a and became law abiding citizens , quiet and good order were restored , the supremacy of the law vindicated and the troops withdrawn From all the facts stated to your committee , they are of the opinion that it was only owing to the timely and wise action of Mayor Boyd , and the immediate response thereto by the chief executive of this state , that murder and bloodshed , and the de struction of property at Omaha was prevented. Your committee are unable from any statement made to 'them to ascertain the cause which led to the riot , that only bo-ing known by the instigators thereof , * hat a riot existed of the greatest and most dangerous character , callini ; for a protection of the inhabitants at Omaha , has been fully and amply es tablished by these who appeared be fore your committee , and in our opin ion the thank } of all law abiding citi zens are due to the wise , able and of- ' ; manner in which Mayor Boyd .and Qov. Nanco acted for the best interest torest of the people and to the hone of our state , and your committee are further of the opinion that the bhtn should attach where it properly bo longa , to the instigators and oncour agcrs of the riot. E. M. BARTLBTT , Chairman. J. F. FRKDRIUCK , W. A. PAXTON , J. P. Scorr , A. U. JACKSON , M. U. WKSCOTT. Hollman asked why the chairmat of the labor union had not boon callcc to testify before the committee. Th investigation has been cxparto anc unjust to the mon who are accused This house wants the whole facts.Vt want to know whether the mayor o Omaha and the city council , and tin sheriff of Douglas did all in their power or before calling upon the governor I don't make these remarks with r view to obstructing the passage of the bill but wo want to know the facts. Bartlctt replied that the prcsidftil of the labor union came to his oflico in Omaha , in anticipation of the present - ont investigation , and requested mete to do all in my power to defeat any bill of this kind which should bo in troduced. I told him that was no place to discuss the question and in vited him to como to Lincoln and ap pear before the proper committee It is not the fault of the committee that Walsh did not appear. The committee mitteo had no power to send for parsons and papers. But the committee have done everything the ] could with the material at hand. Ransjm nskrd why Mayor Boyc had a special call while Wnlih had not Bartlett replied that Mayor Boyc had been asked for information because cause of his official position , and i Walsh did not appear it was his own fault. fault.Moore Moore , of York , said his resolution called for a complete- investigation into the cause of the riot. Humor says that the cause of the riot was the tact that n certain railroad contractor advertised for two or thrco times BB many men aa he needed , and when they came ho took adaantage of their presence to offer only puh wages as it is commonly admitted IB insufficient to support a family uppn. The committee mittoo have reported nothing upon this pomt. Bartlett replied that the committee did not consider it necessary to go into the causes which produced the riot in asmuch as the riot actually exis ed. A scone of great excitement fol lowed , incident upon the attempt to pass the Burns apportionment bill through the house. The minority , led by Whedon , adopted a vigorous filibustering policy , and occupied about two hours' time thereby. The previous question was finally moved and carried , and the bill passed by a rote of 49 to 34. The houho in the afternoon listened to an elaborate oulogv by Bartlett , up on Messrs Kaley and S chick , the de ceased members of the house. The Cams and Teffe investigation committees both drew 1 irge crowds. Senator Van Wyck and Dr. Miller had some Jively tilts , although the doctor was unable to sustain any of the chances that he had made regard ing the senator. In the Carns/ committee mitteo an interesting session took place , the matter being loft , at the slcse a question of veracity between Carns and llbb'irts Both commit tees meet again to-day. THE CAKNS INVESTIGATION. The committee in the Cam * investi gation resumed their labora yesterday afternoon , and Mr. Abel Hill , cx- slienlF of Butler county , was called upon to testify. IIo stated that ho had conversed with Mr. Robberts concerning this mutter during the last session. Rob- berts told him that he had been offered n bribi ; that Carns had como to his room in the night and told him that the Union Pacific would give him $5,000 , and that ho declined the offer. Ho had also spoken of the matter once afterward. This was about the time of the county election last fall. The first occurred either during or shortly after the last session. Rob ber IB and ho were intimate friends. If o had hold the oflico of sheriff of Butler county for throeyears. . Mr. Jensen was sworn. Ho is member of the legislature for Butler county. Ho knew nothing about the charges of bribery. He had not talked with cither Cart's or Robberts about , ho charges until yesterday. Saw Jams como to his room ono or tire nights after the formation of the com. Dittoes. Ho was looking for Rob- serts. It might have boon after mid- light that tins happened. Ho was ymg down at the time. Never saw Jams come to the room after that Jould not etato positively that ho had soon Carna und llobborts togcthcr'thafc night. Ho had not noticed them much together during the session , lor had ho over hoard any conversation ) utiroen thorn , lie did not consider heir ta'k that evening confidential. [ t was during the most exciting period ( of the session , when the election of a senator was on the carpet , Did not < now whether Oarns und Robberts were reconciled on their choice for senator. Carns was in the habit of calling on members frequently during ; his campaign. Mr. J. M. Thurston was duly sworn and testified to the following effect : Resides in Omaha and is employed as assistant attorney for the (7. P , R. R. Has hold that position for five years. Is acquainted with Messrs. Carns and Robber's , and was present at the session of the legislature last winter. Ho boarded at the Commer cial , as did ulso Can s ft/id Robborts. Knows Church Howe , who stopped at ho same hotel. Had no convorsa- .ion with Cams , in which ho author- zed him to make any proposals to Ilobberts , nor tu off > r him any money or consideration. Was not aware that any sush proposition hid been nude o R ) bbort.J. Cams had no authority o make any proposals for the com- > any to anybody. Had never had any talk with Robberts on railroad natters. All I know about this thing s what Carna told mo. Soinetimo after the committees were formed ) arnn came to him and said that he md Bomothiny that would surprise him ; ho said , "What do you think Jake Robborts wants $5,000 " 11. ( Cams ) said that Robborts came to him And told him that ho was there on expense ; that ho had a family HIK was poor , and if the U. P. R R. would like to prevent unfavorable legislation ho could do n great deal ol good or harm , according totho , way they treated him. Ho came to mo n ( Robborts1 request Ho told Robberts to bring the mcssnao himself. Carns said to mo , "John , I simply bring this word from Robberts ; I am much surprised - prised at it ; I wash my hands of it , but ] thought it right that you should know what Robborts said " I said it wai remarkable , both as to the demand and the amount. 1 had no money to give any man. I told Cams I couldn't help what RobborU might do. Some time after , inaybo a week , Oarns canu agaiii and said that Robbcrts hat urged him to como , and that as Rob borts was friendly on senatorial mat ters , ho did not like to refuse. Rob berta told him tnat if Whodon hat : boon made chairman of the railroac committee ho would have demanded 610,000 , and ho ( llobborts ) WAS wortl half aa much. The next time I to Omaha I told Mr. Kimball of it , and ho denounced thu whole scheme. I told Cams that after what had Imp- it would bo well for Rjbborts to acl conservatively toward the railroads ; that wo were not going to bo black mailed. He had seen Uobbcrts once after that at his oflico in Omaha. CaniB was there at the timo. They talked about the affidavit that thty had 'heard Robborts had made. Rob barta had assured them both that there was nothing in the affidavit that would hurt either of them ; that it was made for private nso , in his own county , and would not be shown to anyone that would use it against them. Mr Kimball was sworn , and testi fied that Thurston ht > d told him of Robborts' demand ; that ho had told Thurston that the idea was preposter ous , and that Robberts might go ahead and do all the harm ho know how. Lieutenant Governor Cams was then examined , and testified at length. Ho had two or three conversations with Robberts , as the latter had testified , but that Robbtrts had asked him to got him the money. Robberts cross examined Carns and plied him wiJi a running fire of questions that was very amusingto the auditors. Among other things brought out wan the fact that there was an understanding be iween Cams and Robberts , that al though the former was working for Paddock , and the latter for Post , during the senatorial fight , there was an understanding that 'both was to lop.over to Nance when the time camo. The testimony was concluded with ; he evidence of Church Howe , who ; estiliod that Robberta had com- jlainod to him that he didn't get any- Jimg for his position , nnd that he , Churph ) , had been asked hyRobbarts o secure passes and telegraph franks or him. 4 Adjourned until two o'clock this at- ornoon.

Foster , of Ohio , who arrived at the Fifth Avcnro hotel lust evening , is confident that the republicans will sweep the fluid at the tall election for congress men in Ohio. "Tho democrats are naking capital , " ho said , "over the Smith Sunday law , and claim the adoption of this measure , mainly through the republican vote in the lite legislature , will give them the bulk of the Gorman voto. With the hundreds of republican liquor dealers througout the state who are opposed to this law , I fcol certain Uioy are reckoning without their liosts. It is possible they mny secure lame Germans , but not so many as they imagine , as ( hero is a largo num ber of Gorman Catholics in Ohio who fnvpr this law and join with all law- abiding citizens. It is the desire that our Sundays bo observed. They will itatid firm with us ropublicuns for aw and for it enforcement. It will bo a fair stand for a fight and I believe wo will beat our old adversaries. " Reporter Governor , it is reported that you will stand for United States senator to succeed Mr. Pondloton ; is .hero any truth in that ? "To use a familiar expression , " he said , with a smile , "I'm in the hands of my friends ; if they think I can bo ) f service to my state and country in ; ho senate , I am willing to except the : ionor.
