LINCOLN , February 19. The legis
lature is completely demoralized. The
scones enacted m thu capital to-night
are simply indoaoribablo. The disor
der in the house during the night sou-
eion would disgrace the lowest dlvo In
Omaha. For ctro long hours a perfect
Babel roignod. Members and lobby
ists were pelting each other with paper
wads , hurling all sorts of miaalles
through the houao , whllo bills were
being road and voted on , and the cli
max was capped about 11 p. m. , when
Mr. Hcward , of Clay , moved au ad-
jonrnment , and a parfeot phower of
paper wads and booka w.vi hurled at
him , and finally some hoodlum clapped
a paper baakot ever Howard's head
* Such n exhibition of Indecency was
was never before perpetrated in any
Nobr&aka legislature. It Is a burning
disgrace that rtfloctc , to use a mild
phrase , the utmost discredit on
Speaker Humphrey , who n In honor
and duty bound to maintain order and
onfojco dccornin while the house is
in session. Tliln conduct waa just
what might bo cspcctod from a body-
that has given over to jobbery and
reckless raids on the state treasury.
The questionable caeana by which tbo
cipltol bill was to bo lobbied throngh
the house bean Us Sodom apple fruit

the passigo of n bill appropriating

, turea ct the Kearney reform aahool.
It ia currently given out that this se
cures Senator Caanor's vote for the
capltol bill. It ia incredible that Gan
Connor could compromise himself by
such a trado. The senate galleries
wece densely crowded with apectatora
and the Bonato floor
* to-cight during the dobito on the cap
ital appropriation bill. The majority' '
report , signed by Sanator Howell , of
YorJf , recommended the bill with
. ,
amendments that reduced the special
levy from one mill to thro8 < qnartors of
ono mill. Senator Reynolds presented la
minority report , giving reasons dy
the bill should not pass. Ho ed
the fact that the state ia overburdened
with tax ; that the constitutional limit
of debt is already overreached
-by more 'than $250,000 ; that
iho atato still owes $30,000
for the wiogs to the capital ou which
it pays interest and lantly he protested
against the bill ou the ground cf here
bargains that had been made in re
ceiving its passage in the house rend
that 'at least ono member ia bsliovod teat
have been bribed.
aroae ever thcao reports , Reynolds at
one time charged that an attempt to
} Intimidate a member of the senate by
threats was made by a prominent Lin
coln merchant. Brown , of Lancaster ,
demanded the name of the senator and
the language of the merchant. Rey
nolds said , "A leading merchant jy.of
your city , whose name I can give at
any time , threatened that I should bo
defeated for reelection If I dared to
vote for thla appropriation , " \lt. \
Canfield interposed and said ; "I have
been notified
if I dared to vote against it , but I am
bound to coma back , nil the satno.
The debate continued
mora than an

Mr. Washburn , from the committee
on commerce , reported bills for the
construction of a bridge across the Il
linois river near Goluinblana , and the
Missouri river near Kansas City.
Mr. Kelley , from committee on
ways and means , moved to suspend
rules and pv)3 a bill to reduce interns
revenue tss-Ulon.
Mr. Morrison demanded a second.
Mr. Sptlngor raised to a point of
order. The speaker overruled the
point of order. The motion was
seconded , 13'J to C8. In support of
his motion Kelly said every line of
the bill presented had received the
approval of the sonata and committee
which he represented , therefore ho
believed whllo doubt and uncertainty
might prevail as to the tariff legisla
tion there was an opportunity offered
to mitigate our excessive revenue to
the extent of $10,000,000 , It was yet
probable the two houses might bo able
to bo brought to an agreement on the
tariff bill.
A long debate ensued on Mr. Kol-
loy'o motion. Mcesrs. Tucker , Mor
risen , Carlisle , Iloaao and others
made speeches. In opposition to the
motion , urging that reduction of Inter
nal revenue meant uo reduction of
Moesra. MoKinloy , Kasson and
othoM spoke In 'favor of the motion ,
stating that if the bill reducing Inter
nal revenue was passed , republicans
would then go ahead and attempt to
pass the tariff bill.
The motion to suspend the rules
and pass the bill was defeated yeas
182 , nays C7 , not the necessary two-
thirds In the affirmative. Adjourned.
