i THE nnr.'s LINCOLN nuntsAir.l
President Kgnn of the Irish Naliona
League expresses himself as much
pleased with Iho make-up of the new
British cabinet. John Morlcy , chief sec
retary for Ireland , ho says , is P pro
nounced home-ruler , and ti man of strong
courage and sound opinion. The office
is by far tlie most important in the cabi
net to Irishmen , but unfortiinalely it has
mainly in Ihc past been filled by men who
have allowed themselves , unconsciously
perhaps , to become the tools of the mem
bers of the permanent government.
Morley , Mr. Enjran thinks , is a man who
will rule , instead of being ruled. II. C.
II. Clillders , homo secretary , is another
liberal minded man of force and ability.
Tor Iho lir.st time in the history
of England , that is in its
modern history , two Catholics have been
called to high places , the Marquis of
Kipon as first lord of the admiralty , and
Charles Ilusicll as attorney general.
About llio only appoinlincnl in which
the queen's hand can lie .seen is that of
Earl Ko'ebeiT.y ns secretary for. foreign
nlValrs , an ollieo in which Her Majesty
takes more interest , and comes nearer
ruling , than all the other branches of llio
government combined. It was Glad-
Hlono's desire nt first to put Earl Gran-
vlllc in tliiU place , but the nuccn made
such a vigorous protest that the "grand
old man ' concluded lo pacify her by
making Granville ( secretary for the col
Jf onies.
John P. Stilton , of Quebec ; llio successor
ser of Itogur Walsh , as secretary of the
luaguo , is making his olllce with Mr.
Egan. YVstcrdny the Bii : , man found
Mr. Siilton busy mailing to friends-of tlio
cause copies of the following circular :

Soon after the release of Simmcrnian ,
the Mlnden niurtlorcr , on habeas corpus
proceedings lust fall , Attorney General
Leese made application to the state su
preme court for the disbarment of L. C.
llurr , Sinimerman's attorney , for con
tempt and ollioial misconduct. The court
appointed Messrs. Cpvvin of Omaha. Hayward -
ward of Nebraska City , Ilarwood of Lin
coln , Ragaii of IIustmg-4 , and Ewing ol
Central City , a committee to ascertain
the facts , and report on February ! ) . Last
evening the committee met at the Com
mercial hotel , Messrs. Covvin , Haywaid
and Ewing being present. Attorney
General Leeso declined to attend , but
submitted a brief , setting forth his
charges against Ihirr , anil citing numer
ous authorities in support of disbarment ,
IJ.y stipulation the case wa
laid before the committee on
the law pleadings , Commissioner Sa-
villo's testimony , and the application
for the writ of habeas corpus. Hon. J.
M. Woolworth of Omaha appeared for
llurr , making a very forcible and elo
quent argument. Mr. Woolworth con
tended that his client was not guilty ol
contempt because Sinimerman's case had
been removed to the federal courts on a
writ of error , and that , though the
prisoner was in the ctistodyjof thoslicriil' ,
the latter was acting as agent of the
United Stales , and that the state court
had no jurisdiction. Referring to tlio
charge of misconduct , Mr. Woolworth
Bald that the statutes expressly provided
that iii case where the life turn liberty oi
a client was concerned his attorney
tornoy must bo left free to act
as his judgment may diotalo ,
untrammelled by fear or favor. Mr.
Uurr , ho was willing lo iuUn.it , mid acted
unwisely , b.ut , it. "Tts merclv an error of
liuiirn'/j'nt and not intentional wrong.
Tlie whole proceedings were conducted
openly in the presence of a number of
clll/.en * . and there was no collusion be
tween HiiiT and Savillo , as the latter had
sworn ho never met or hoard of Burr
before ho appeared and demanded the
writ. The whole argument was ingenious
and made a strong impression on the
committee , who will report their opinion
to the htato court about Wednesday
Joseph Oakcs is the plaintiff in u rather
peculiar action juilcommonrod in thedh-
trict court under the title of Joseph ( Jakes
vs 11. S. Hlninonthal , Jesse Itlumonthal
anil the Missouri L'acilio railway. In Oo-
tolier last , lUiunenthal , than the owner of
certain real estate in this eity. was sued
by Oukus , who recovered a judgment for
the amount claimed. An execution was
issued and returned by the sheriff en
dorsed "no properly.1 Now O.ikos
comes into court anil alleges that Bin-
munthal transferred tlio realty , without
consideration , to another party , who
transferred it back to Bliuiioiithal'd ' wifo.
Later it was condemned by the Missouri
Pucillo for right of way and appraised at
$3,000 , no part of which has yet
been paid. Oakcs claims that this
is $000 more than the defendants
tire allowed by the exemption law , and
wants judgment for that amount and as
much mom as the court will give him.

otts assemblies of Iho Knights of Labor , pray

On motion ot Mr. Sovvell the .senate passed
the bill heretofore Introduced by amending

On Mr. Huiiison's motion , the mornlne s
business was laid aside nnd the Dakota bill
taken up , on which Mr. liutler took tlio floor
and said the senator from Indiana had either
evadou or foigottcu many facts bearing on
the Dakota question. Mr. Hutler chmgcd
that the opposition to Dakota had Hist come ,
not from the democratic side of the senate ,
but fiom the lepnbllcan sldo , and quoted
some remarks of Mr. Halo In a loimcrcon-
giess to sustain his position.
Mr. McMillan believed Mr. Halo slood
Mr. Hutlcr rtld not care how that was. The
senatois from Illinois and Indiana ) said ho
had icfericd to the vote polled by South Cmo-
lina nndother southoin states , and compared
these votes with the vote ot Dakota. Mr.
Untler had to assume that was done for the
inn pose of giving a sectional turn to the do-
hate and miaylng iiopular prejudice against
the .southern people. The southern states ,
Mr.HUutler continued , had been under fire for
a good many vears. They survived heavier
mtlllcry than that turned against
them now and would survive
tills. Whatever might bo said against botith
Umollna , and no doubt she had made mis
takes in the past and would make mistakes
in the future , never , until the political friends
ol'tlie senatois had camped upon the fair
bosom of that state had her otllcials been
tainted with blemish or corruption. It had
never happened until then that herjollicials
had been compelled lo Hy fiom her borders
to escape states prison , and while tlie de
grading , disgraceful and humiliating spolia
tion had been going on , not one word ot pro
test had come tiom the honorable senatois
on the other side who now airaigned South
Mr. Logan said his attention had been di-
icctcd to tlie vote of South Carolina because
the senatois fiom South Caiollnn ( Butler )
and MIssoiui ( Vest ) had complained that
Dakota in 1834 had polled 55,003 votes , while
on the adoption ot the pioposcd constitution
only fil.OOJ votes had been polled. He
( Logan ) had then called attention to tlioscna-
tofsovvn state ( Soutn Cmolina ) anil showed
that Dakota , with only a quarter of a million
population.liad polled ; ilOOOvoteswhlle south
Caiolinn , with a population of a million had
only polled 01,009 votes and he ( Logan ) had
inquiied whether , If explanation was 10-
quued lor Dakota , If explanation was not
also icquiied lor South Carolina.
Mr. Isutler replied that the explanation was
that nt the last election in South Carolina tlio
political fileiuls nnd allies ot' the senatoi
liom Illinois wcio industiioiisly neglected.
They had not been instmctcd or even approached
preached by that senator. He ( Butler )
believed all the people ot South Carolina ,
white ami coloied , wcio satisfied with their
state government.
Mr. Logan remaikcdthat nothing had been
said by him about the state government of
South Caiollna.
Mr. Butler then Inquired If the senator
tiom Illinois ( Logan ) would hi tuin
vouchsafe an explanation of the votes of
some of the states that ho ( Butler ) would
mention. Ho Inquired how it was that only
02 per cent of the votes ot Illinois Had gone
to the poles at the lust election , oven with
the favorite son of Illinois and the "Plumed
Knight" both on the ticket.
Mr. Logan said the point ( irst made by the
scnntor from South Caiollna hnd been that
explanation was rcquhcd why tlio vote had
fallen oft ain Dakota. IIo ( Logan ) had
explained that * fact by showing that the
democratic committee of the teriltory had
notified tlio democrats not to participate in
tlio vote. But even on the view ol the senator
fioiuNoifh Caiollun if the veto hail fallen
oil In South Carolina , Illinois , and other
states , why should It not fall off in Dakota ?
Mr. Butler said this did not explain the
falling oil in Illinois. Ho also asked why
the "old icllablo , " solid , public Institute of
Vermont , under the leadeishii ) of the sena
tor tiom that state ( Kdinnnili ) , who was wild
with enthusiasm for the success of the icpub-
llcan ticket [ great lauuhter ] had polled only
02 per tent ol its vote , and oven then that the
senators own town had for the first time in
its history gonjo ilcmociatlcV Also , why bad
lUiodo Island , equally enthusiastic for the
in aiamo , UIQ 1101115 91 wju xiu ; ca iViri iu , '
but wj yyr cent OL 'luo Vote was cast lor that
popular ticket ?
Mr. Logan Will the senator allow mo to
ask him a question ?
Mr. Uutler I shall bo through in a moment.
Peihans these tilings can bo explained.
Mr. Logan 1 was going to do It.
Mr. Uutler I shall DO glad to hear the ex
planation In a moment.
It wns amusing , Mr. Butler said , for the
senatois who had not , and in tlie natuioot !
tilings could not. have piusidentlalnsplia-
tlons , to watcli the contests going on be
tween some ol the senators of the other side ,
lie had no doubt Dakota's vote would bo a
luscious plum tor ambitious statesmen who
wcio Infected with the picsldcntlal fever ,
lie leteiied to "our gciiiat filt'iul liom Iowa"
( AllNon ) , who , ha Mid , had "only got to
cross over and shako the bush , " and "who
would bear watching. " Itoleriing to one of
tlio Dakota gentlemen who opposed admis
sion , Mr. Uutler u.ild that while some other
men vvooi lolling In their touts , he had oeen
matching to the lime of his countiy.
In thu com so of lib lemaiks Mr. Butler al
luded to tlie pensions paid to union soldiers ,
and said hu ( Butlei ) hnd voted to pay mil
lions in on millions of such pensions to the
comrades of thu senator from Illinois , while
his ( Butlers ) comrade * neither expected nor
iccflved a cent , but paid their siiaio of the
taxes , . Ho Hid not complain of tills. The
comiades of that senator had been tlio vie-
tola ; HutleTs comindes had been tlio van-
qul.sliediinil v\cie entitled to no pension , Tim
eomiatlus of tlie senator from Illinois weio
entitled to tlio thanks nnd honor ot the gov-
eminent. But thu people had no light to bo
eternally flaunting their peiloimanco in the
face of thocountiy In order to excite piojudlco
against otheis.
Mr. Logan said ho hnd not attacked the
state ot South Caiollna. He hail thought he
was complimenting that state when ho had
said that South Carolina had always
been In tlio I'oio liont of democratic leader
ship. Logan commented on tlio lefeiences
ot Mr. Butler to tlio "lolling In their tents" of
oilieeis , "whilesoldiers on tlio maicli , "
That rjmailc , ho said , wns not ju.-t to the
gentlemen on this side ot tlio chamber.
Mr. Butler disclaimed having Intended its
application to any senator.
Mr. Logan lecognUcd equal merit In all
where theie had been faithful seivlce. In
conclusion Mr. Lo nn icpcated flint what
ever piotence iimr be made as to the leason
for excluding Dakota , however tlio sonaiuib
may "higgle" over words , theieal reason was
that it would have a republican majority.
Men may aiguo as they please with flimsy
pretexts that this u us not ( he real source of
dllllculty , but the Awerlcan people had an
abiding sense pf justice. They know that
all the elements for statehood existed in
Dakota ; that It had the necessary pojitdatlon ,
and alljjtmjjcoudltlons Jof industry , em
nnd civilization , t Then \vliy , ho asked , i
should not tills new state ho plnecil In Iho
cluster of the American union , that It may
add Its share to the * light nnd glory ot the
republic. 1 t
Mr. Call opposed Ihe committee's bill. The
will of the whold people or Dakota , he said ,
had not been ascertained on the mioMlon of
division or on tho.proimsed constitution , and
they should Imve an opportunity of voting
on these questions before action by congress
wns necessary.
Mr. Kdinunds Inanhcd whether Messrs
Call , Butler and their assoclntes would vote
for tlie bill If nn nmundniciit were made to It
providing for submission ot the now consti
tution to the people fet their nppioval before
It should go Into operation ? Or would they
vote for a bill which would bo submitted to
the i > eoplc of the whole territory for them to
say whether they wanted division or noli1
Mr. Call saw no neccasltv for such urgent
haste. This matter had to be decided \vlthn
\ lew to the future ns well ns the present.
Mr. Uutler Will thcsenntorfrom Vciiuoiit ,
before submitting this bill to the people , elim
inate from it everything that has been done
In the way of elcctlonsof senators , congiess-
men , etc.
Mr , Kdmunds I will not. Alter nil these
years of effort and application by these
people , the mutter should bo disposed of.
Heie was n constitution llkctlicconstitntlons
of other states In respect to the security of
property , ndmlnlstiatlon of justice , the equal
fovyingof taxes and oilier things that goto
ninko up the best of modern constitu
tions. I would not , thcieforc , say
to these people that they must bo
again put oil for two or tlueo years.
Tlie people of a tenitory , Mr. Kdmunds con
tinued , hnd no light to leinnin teiiitorlnl sub
jects foiever. Tim United States paid a very
laige pait of the teiritoiinl expenses , and
should be iclieved of thai bmdcn ns soon ns
was consistent \vltli gencial good. It wns
the nilsfoitunn of fate lor the senators on the
democratic side that the D.ikottilans did not
have political opinions witli which those
senatois could agree , and that was Avbnt the
matter was.
Mr. Beck denied tlio light of a teriltory to
divide Itself , that being a power lodged only
In congicss. The population of the new ter-
lilory , he said , consisted to a considerable ex
tent ot loiolgncrd Scandinavians and otlicis
who were not jet piepaied for eiti/onshlp.
The debate then closed , and Mr. Butler s
substitute was put to a vote and lost yeas ' ' -i ,
The bill icpoilcd from the committee was

"Everything from a needle lo a loco
motive , " were Ihc words with which As
sistant Supply Agent Pratt , of the Union
Pacific , replied to a reporter last night ,
who had made inquiry concerning the
articles he kept in block.
Very few people have any idea of the
cxpcii'-o of maintaining a vast railroad
system like that of the Union Pacific , or
of the thousand and one details which
have to be looked after.
To nil such , a tour through tlio supply
department depot of the road would
provo highly interesting , Instructive and
Mr. J. J. Burns is known as the gene
ral supnly agent , while Mr. C. N. Pratt is
his assistant , having direct charge of the
distribution of the supplies. The build
ings used by the dlstriuutingdopartment ,
four in number , nro located near the tin-
ion Pacilio Miops. In the smaller build
ing the clerical force , consisting of about
00 men , nro at work. The other build
ings , known as A , B , and C , immediately
north , contain the vast storage rooms in
which the supplies are kept in stock.
In depot A arc kept the immense blip-
plies of stationery which are used by the
general division and station oilices of tlio
road. On all sides of the room are capa
cious lockers or cupboards containing
largo quantities of every variety of sta
tionery articles that ono could think of
uapcr , inks , pens , pencils , rubbers , mu
cilage , pen racks , paper weights , envel
opes , etc. , etc. , besides all the different
blanks used on the road. This depart
ment is in the charge of W. K. McKcn/.ic ,
stationery agent , who came hc.ro about a
year ago , from service on the Kansas Pa
cific. Ho has completely reorganized the
department , and has instituted a smooth
ly-working and economical system. The
supplies of stationery are civen out to
the local officers , upon requisitions from
the various heads of departments. The
stations along the line are supplied witli
a sixty-days' stock , by means of special
cars which arc sent out over the road at
tached to the piy : car , every two months.
At the end of December Ja'.t , the stock of
stationery was found to bo worth about
$ , ' 5,000 , while the total disbursements in
this direction lor the year amounted to
Immediately adjoining the stationery
room , in Depot A , is a vast apartment
where the general supplies are kept.
"Here , " said Mr. i'ratt , who guided the
Buu man on his tour of investigation ,
"you can find anything you want. There
is hardly an article 3011 couid name that
wo don't keep in stock hero oven lo
satin velvet or plush. Everything is kept
in sucli a shape that wo can fill
an order at a moment's notice.
Sowing machines ? Yes , owe are ready
to supply them , though we don't keep
them in stock as u general tiling. You
can have no idea of the queer orders wo
are called upon to fill once in a wnile
orders for articles which you would not
dream wore used in running a railway.
We have to be ready to meet every emer
gency without delay , too. "
In the other buildings , depots B. and
C. , are kept the heavy hardware , such as
car wheels , axles , springs , all sorts of
iron and steel trimmings , civil engineer's
outfits , windmills , scales , glass , paints ,
etc. One large item of storage is the
"waste" used in greasing the thousands
of busy car wheels which transport the
freight and passengers of the road. Over
18,000 ponniU ii keiit in reserve hero , and
it does not take long to cxliau&t this
The total value of the stock in these
three buililings is at least $350,000. This
value , it maybe said , is maintained all
the year round , and sometimes , during
an extra busy season it may run up to as
high as $100,000 or more.
Besides the main supply depot in Oma
ha there are division depots or sub-stores
in Denver , Grand Island , North Platte ,
Cheyenne , Laramie , EvanstonlPocatcIlo ,
E.iglo Hook , and Armstrong , Kansas.
Those depots are supplied from the main
store-rooms in Omuha , with a stock of
sixty days currant material. In this way
ho distribution of supplies * over the sysf
cm is more easily accomplished than i-
hero were but one main station.
No supplies are issued cither locally or
to the various divisions of the road , With
out a duly signed and certified requisi
tion from the bead of the department or
division which makes the request
In conclusion it might bo interesting lo
note that last year the Union Pacific dis
tributed from its store-house in Omaha
supplies to the value of $1,500,000. This ,
according lo the recently published re
port , was abtiut one-fourth of the entire
expense of running the road.
