LINCOLN , February 18. The raid
on the atato treasury still continues
After voting awoy about $900,000 iu
the general appropriation bill and 1m *
posing a special tax for a $500,000
addition to the capital , the lower
honao has put through the committee
of the whole another batch of c'ainn
that rival in sublime cheek the bogui
83,000 claim of tqnattor Governor
Poarman. Those fraudulent claims
were sandwiched into tha mlscellano
ous appropriation bill with a few
rlghtoom claims that should bo paid.
The debate over thia bill waa in some
respoata interesting. Before the va
rious itema were piaaed upon , Rob'
berta , of Butler , moved an amend
ment that the claim of Pat 0. Hawea
to $1,048 25 bo incorporated in this
bill. . Thla motion mot with some op
position. Hatch argued that aa the
claim waa a paifeotly fair one it ought
to bo allowed. Johnson hoped the
amendment would prevail , aa the gen
eral sentiment of the houeo waa that
the claim waa a just onr.
Mr. McAllister wanted to know by
what suthorlty agenta were appointed.
If the claim was a fair ono , ho thought
the state could collect it without the
aid of agonta. He wna opposed to
cst&blhhing a dangerous prooodont of
thla kind
Mr. Payne explained that thia claim
arose ont of n contract made with Ex-
Governor James , that Mr. Huwos was
fully entitled to hia ojrnmieslon. The
amendment waa finally carried.
Franso moved that the aum of $150
allowed in the bill to Orawford and
MoLanghliu for defondlnp a murderer
named Henry Sobuylor , bo made
$600. The trial had lasted two wookn
and ho thought $150 waa inaufilalont
compensation. NJ matter how grost
the criminal might bo whoa hia life
and liberty wad at stake ho WIXH en
titled to the boat defonco that could bo
had Ho appealed to them whether it
l-v was fair and right to establish the
- ' principles that fittoen cent nttornoya
should bo employed to defend mur
derers. Howard irged that ths
committee had very carefully consid
ered his claim , and they had come to
the conclusion that $150 waa sufficient
compensation.
Oaatlo pointed ont that in allowing
the defense 000 they would be allow
I \ ing the dotonso more than the prose
cuting attorneys , aud ho thought this
K\ \ was far from right.
IV . Whltzel strongly oppoa. d tboamond-
ment , as he considered $150 quite
enough.
The amendment waa then nut and
lost.
lost.A
A feeble effort was made against
IJ Bill Stout's c'.alm fur $2,000 for enlarging -
larging the gallocv in representative
hall. Several members thought Bill
had put it on rather heavy and some
expressed the opinion the gallery
didn't coat ono-thUrd of $2,000 , but
the claim wai finally voted. Then
, came George Oanfiold'o clatm for
$534 45 back pay for boarding the
militia during the Omaha sham riots.
This ia ono of the cheekiest claim *
over brought before any legislature * .
The clerk of the Ojnfiold house msda
a contract with the chief quarlornnator
to feed the militia at 25 cants a mottl.
At the extra session laat sprlug
Oanfield presented his bill at that rate.
It waa voted to him and paid in fnlll
and Oanfield waa well satisfied with
getting it. Now he comes in with a
bill for back pay at forty cents a
meal , or fifteen cents additional , be
cause the legislature laat spring al
lowed Swobe and Marshall , of tuo U ,
P. depot eating house , forty cents for
meala for which they claimed fifty
conta. McGavock , of Douglas , hoped
that the claim would bo allowed. He
informed the house that Oanfiold waa
away from home when the militia came
to hia hotel to bo boarded , but when
he returned , ho made a general under
standing that ho would board at the
same rate the other hotel keepers
were boarding thnm. ( Thia wasn't
Oanfiold'a story last aprlng ) The
legislature had only allowed nim at
the rate of 25 cants a meal , whereas
they had allowed the others 40 centn.
This claim of $534 45 waa to make up
the 15 cent ? , BO aa to make the pay at
Jho rate of 40 cents , aa the others
were paid.
There waa no contract made , and ho
hoped Mr. Oanfiold would receive the
ii additional 15 conta per meal ,
Hollman knew that Oanfield waa not
there at the time the mllltla arrived.
Ho strongly urged that he bo paid the
extra amount In question. This was
finally agreed to by a close voto.
Then there .waa about $3,500 back
pay allowed to sheriffs aud marshals.
Amongtheae was Gran Ensign , $508.-
25 ; D. B. Ball , $08 20 ; H. S. Moody.
8209 30 ; George W. Gay , $108.20 ; J.

THE JEANNKITK INQUIIIY.
WASHINGTON , February 18. The
Jeannette court of Inquiry ruports the
following faoU as dot.mod established
by ovlduuoo nddncod concerning the
cltcamitaucos of the Iocs of the Joau
notto and death of DoLjug and others
cf her offiocra and man. Although
the weight of the ovldeuco shows the
Jeannette was not especially adapted
ia strength or model for arctic explor
ation , The fact that an experiment
jxploror had made two cruises in her
to the arctic sens , anatalna the judg
ment and euro shown in her selection.
When last purchased she wna strengthened -
onod and improved , and the condition
of the vcsael on her departure from
Sun FranoUcn was good mid satiafno
tory , her oflioora crow ( except that
the WQB unavoidably deaply loaded , n
defect which corrected itself by the
consumption of coal ) , provisions and
stores. Evidence relating to the man
agement of the Jeunnotto up to the
time of the loss , shows that the
chances of reaching Wrangle inland
were suflicitfntly good to justify the
commander in attempting to reaoh It ,
rather than to return to some sonthurn
port to p-.ca the winter in idleness.
Had he done otherwise than ho did ho
might fairly bocu thought wanting in
thu high qualities necccjuary to ox-
plorors. Through the expedition
every opportunity was improved for
gaining ecluutitio information ; thruo
islmda ware discovered , two
of which were vlaltod , ex
plored and taken possession of in
the nnino of the United Stntca In
the mauugumoTit of the Jeanette up to
the time of her detention , Oominandor
DdLong , by hia foresight and pru
dence , provided nieaaurea to meet
emorgonciea and enforce wiee regula
tion1) . The fact of the ship's having
paaeod a second winter in the ice with
out the appearance of ecurvy on board ,
attcata the excellence of sanitary ar
rangements adopted and rt fleets great
credit upon Surgeon Ambler , aa to the
circumstances of the lees of the veasol.
The court attaches no blame to any
officer or man and reports cay the
provisions mndo and the plana adopt
ed for the safety of the crewa upon
theiMeaving the wreck were judicious ,
aa it iaohownthat ninety days after the
destruction ef the Jeanette , the officers
.and ir en were in * ir condition , not
withstanding their terrible journey.
The story ot the retreat from the ves
sel , with accompanying sufferings ,
disappolntmonta , dangers , difficultiea
and delays , death of DaLnug , and hie
companions , subsequent dUcovery of
.heir dead bodies , 10 aecured at con
siderable length nnd tha-conclusion
reached that everything possible wan
done by the various tfiicors tolnanre

ate charge and for the relief
of other parties. A Hat of

of each and all offiseta and men of the

Tnore ia conaluaivn evidence tint ,
asldo from trivial difllcultios , anch aa
occur on ships , even under the moat
'avorablo circumstances , which had no
ufluonca in bringing about disasterand
no pernicious eifect upon its general
condition , every officer and man aa
conducted himself that the court finds
no occasion to impute censure to any
member of the party. In view , then ,
of tbo long dreary monotony of the
cruise and the privations encountered ,
the disappointment consequent upon
want , the important results , the uncer
tainty of their fate ( and apart from a
natural desire to treitd lightly on the
graves of the dead ) , the general con
duct and personnel of the expedition
iccms to have buen a marvel of cheer-
lnvBP , good fellowship and mutual
forbearance , while the constancy and
enduronco with which they met hard
ships and dangers that besot them
mtitlo them to great praiao.
Besides mention already made , how-
> ver , apodal commendation is due
to Da Long , for the high qualities
displayed by him In the conduct of the
expedition ; to Chief Engineer Mel
ville , forzaal , energy and provisional
tptitudo which elioted high onconv
lumB from his commander and for hie
subsequent efforts on the Lana Delta ]
and to Seaman Nlnderman and Sweet
man , for services which induced theli
lommandor to recommend them 01
medals of honor. Finally , it should
bo stated there are several anrvlvori
of the Jeannette who have not yet re
turned from Siberia , and whoso testl
mony might or might not modify the
conclusions cot forth in this report
The Incidental allusion to trivial dif
ficultles is the only thing ( n the roper
that can bo considered aa reference ti
the alleged troubles between Do Lonj
and Collins.

are of Brown , of Lancaster county.
The bill providing for county attor-
icyo Instead of district attorneys ,
passed the senate with but one dlatont-
ng vote.
The bill known aa the occupying
laiuiants' law , which provides that
ho pcraon who may pay Iho taxea on
any real estate , supposing that the
iroporty belonged to him or her , shall
iavo a Hen apon eald real estate for
all taxco and Intercnt paid there
on. This is Intended to cover
ho claim of a largo number of people
who have boon occupying and paying

ate , aud eho opoko for nearly an hoar.

to 7.

the ntato auditor iu ansnror to a roaolu

doGnatoly postponed in the senate last
night. Senator Norris , chairman of

ftiown what bill it waa his report to
Indefinitely * postpone waa adopted.
This ia a job put up by the many
3rigadlora of thla state who desire to
iavo all the pay and make the pri
vates work for nothing. Under the
Armltagobill the private's pay
waa raised from forty-three
cents { Ta day to two dollars ,
and the pay of the brigadier was re
duced from $1G a day to the same aa
the private. Senators may bo able
, o explain their peculiar actions in re *
; ard to thla bill , and toll the rank and
lie of the Nebraska militia why they
think there la so much difference in
non. This bill was postponed that a
? lg brigadier ptoal might bo forced
through the legislature at the laat mo
ment. On motion of Senator Brown
of Douglas , this bill was reconsidered
thia morning and after a lively fight It
was placed upon the general file and
the proapeot Is that it will pass.
