to the H ii.J : Dr. Miller's attempt to cornci
the democratic < ; during the senatorial
contest has proved a wretched failure from
tlio start. The dlctitor's frantic appeals
have fallen upon deaf ears. The latest ef
fort to corral and InndculT tlio democrats by
binding them to throw away their votes on
McShine is doomed lo prove u dismal
failuro. MeShano Iscrj popular , and If
there was a ghost of a chance to make htm
senator be could count on n united and en
thusiastic support of the thirty-eight demo
crats in tlie legislature. Hut .Mcbhinc Is too
lovel-bc.uled to bo a candidate. Heyond n
complimentary support on the first ballot
next Tuesday , ho Is not likely to hold the
body of Ins party friends from their Indi
vidual piefprenccs. The pressure for n
fltralxht dpmociatlc senatorial candidate
first , last and all the time , comes entirely
Irom railroguo headquartcia. It Is Wall
street In Nebraska clamoring for party can-
cusses. 1 ho democratic monopoly henchmen
that arc hounding democratic members aio
In constant close communion with the
republican lallrogucs who .aio be
deviling and bewildering republi
can mcinbeis with appeals for
" .straight goods. " Translated into ulaln
English , "straight goods" means brass-col
lared candidates. Talk about party loj ally ,
when the men who talk It loudest are notori
ous bolters and repiobatcs , who never jet
failed to betray their natty and trample its
pilnciplcs under foot whenever It suited
their iuteicbt. It was "straight goods" for
the anti-Van Wjck republicans to organize
the henate by the help of two democrats , but
H would have oeen uarty ttcason In the eyes
ot these apostles if tlie opposite faction , bj
the aid of tlio same dcmociats , had organ
ized the senate and made up its committees.
It would have been in aecord with the eternal
fltnebs of things and peifectly satisfactory
from Dr. .Miller's democratic standpoint foi
tlio democrats to cast a solid vote for some
railroad icpubllcan , but It were high licason
to democratic principles if any dcmociat
dares to cast Ids v oto for \ nn Wj ck. It is
tinpaidonablo lei Van Wjck to allow any
democrat to vote foi him , but it will bo
strictly "btiaight goods , " according to Saint
( icre , for Van Wjek's opponents to baigain
through tlie railroad bobbcs for democratic
' 1 ho same coiporation that contiols repub
lican and democratic organs has mustered
the most dlsieputable and vllliinous gang of
bulldo/ers , shjsters , vvhibky sots to hariats
and Impoitunomembars of all partle" . At
every step these members are beset w lib pit
falls and snares. 1'iivale gambling rooms
have been opened in which membois are en
tertained , dined and vvineil. A brood of dis
solute women lias been Imported to play their
paitin trapping the unwary and playing
upon them in collusion with a low gang of
debauched hirelings. Only tlucodajs ago a
prominent member was Inv Ited by one ol the
railroad cappers to a btrictly private assigna
tion place. J verj thing was very nice , retired.
Nobody .should know anjthing about Ids
visit. Tlio member , who liad been heio be
fore , declined the kind invitation , and tlie
stool-piyeon was lolled In bis Infamous
What was the object of such n pioposal ?
Simply to get the member into tlio pow er of
tlio villains , whose puipObC was to terrori/e
him and compel him to vote as they dircctfor
fear of esposuie. Ten chances to one tlio
nicmbci would have been in rested by a bogus
policeman , who Isalwajs on band for such
Roivlce , and released bv thu timely and gen
erous Interference ot the gang who play the
members friend. J'rom this mo'iieiit 1m
Is tlielis and can't escape their blackmailing
clutches. This Is not a fancy sketch , but a
lealitj. The game was plaved beio during
legislative sessions fem and two jears ago.
An oviovcnuo oflleml , who pnmo in last
night , temaiked that within thlity minutes
after he had landed at thu capital that in the

M. oil looms , GO and 07 , are presided over by
Mi. Jlarquott's partnci , Dewces. Here , one
by one , the menioers are invited to call
and see the elephant. .Mr. Dewces lias
not made converts bo far , and
occasionally catches a taitai as bo did tills
nfleinoon , when he wanted Kepiesentativo
Fullei , of Uairo county , to "walk into my
pallor , " Is it any wonder that membcif
who have never taken pait In a Ecnatoilal
light are sick at heart and disgusted to deatli
by the beastly crow that gives them no peace ?
There is literally a dead calm In thuscna'
torlal hoi I/on. No changes have taken place
In tlio relative positions of the contestants.
Van Wjek feels hopeful and confident , and

A slgnllic.ant test on thosonatoilal ques
tion was made In the house In thu afternoon ,
The Culiom-Heagan Intci-stntn commerce
bill , which is now pending before tlio United
States senate , had been tlio subject of n reso
lution requesting senators and representa
tives In congress to vote foi Its passage. The
icsolution had been considered [ a committee
ol the w hole , and w as subsequentlj' , as will
bo seen by the following detailed report ,
adopted by thohouso. As soon asltsadop
tiou was announced Mr. Cole of Adams
moved tlie adoption of a resolution request
ing the attendance in Washington ot sena
tors and representatives of the state In order
that they iiiluht bo nblo to vote upon tlio bill
when it comes up for final pisaa e , The an-
pircnt object of the resolution was to obli
gate Senator Van Wjck to Washington. The
attendniicQ of Congressman Weaver at
Washington would not have been made
obligatory by the resolution , as tlio bill lias
not as vet leached the national house of
icpiesentatlves , and It will probably bo several
eral weeks betoie it comes to a vote there.
Substantially , therefore , the resolution was
a covert slap at Senator Van Wjck.
Mr. Watson of Otoo moved to table the
resolution and Mr. Caldwell of l.mcastei
seconded the motion. Thu ajes nnd najs
were called for and resulted as follows :
Voting to Table Abrahainson , Andrews ,
Habeock , Hallard , Hanett , Hick , How man ,

The vote In the nogathe , or against
tabling , was headed by Agen nnd only mus
tered tblrtv-elght names , of which ten or
more are those of gentlemen known to be
favorable to van Wjck but who voted
through n misunderstanding as to the real
character of the resolution.
Upon the opcnlne of the afternoon session
the announcement of a postponement of the
meeting of the third bouso until Monday
evening next was made.
A resolution Nebraska's

ators nndrcpic'cntatlvcs In conm ssto vote
for and use nil bonor.iblo means to secure the
passage of the Cullom-Hcican Inter-state
commerce bill , now pending before tlio sen
ate , was introduced. Tlio method ofpiooed-
mo regarding It excited some discussion. Mr.
Ageo moved to refer the resolution to the
committee on federal relations.
Mr. Caldwell hoped lliat tills delay would
not be taken but that the sentiment of thu
house would bo oxpiesscd to day.
Mr. Watson otfciedan amendment which
was to make It a joint resolution of bouse and
senate. lie believed it should bo made u
concurrent resolution to give U tlio proper
weltrbt of perfected legislative action.
Mr. Smjth could see no object in icferrlng
It to a committee , to then He there fem daj s.
It was an Impoitant resolution and one
which should bo passed by the bouse. The
majority of tlio people of tlio state weie
stronglv In lavorof It.
Mr. Wldtmoiooireicdnsnn amendment to
the amendment that tlio resolution bo re
ferred to the committee of the whole , and
tint its consideration be made tlio special
order of the hour. It appeared to him Im
portant to act upon the resolution now , as
tlio bill rcfeiied to was alle.ady before con
gress and it would bo the height of foolish
ness to wait until ono branch ofcougiess had
nctcd upon it and than send n request lo

But first v\o heard lloratlo. Silence fell

Tightly buttoned In his now blue uniform , lie
tolded his bands and , in faint tmt steady
tones , began : "MclnoUcri.cn : None of us
will deny the scilousuoss ot the times. The
whole world asks , Is war comlm. ? "
Von Moltke's face w.is Imponetiabic as bo
uttcied these vvoids. Jle paused , put him
self In a gi.ivo and Napcolonic attitude , bunt
bis head and , thrusting his light band into
bis tunic , ansvvoied the iiticstlou thus : "If
tills measure Is rejected war will como
suicly. "
Conservative cheers rang out ; the opposi
tion grow attentive. The only man in the
reichstag who scorned indllfeicntwas Wind-
thoist. He had b\irlcd his nose into his waist
coat and all jou saw was Ills foic-
liead and a piir of glistening
spectacles. Von Voltkc was fat iiilldci than

willingly assume the awtul responsibility of
kindling the tinder with which the entiio
country was Idled , said he , but if ( ieimany
was to keep tiie peace , slio must be strong
and ready foi war.
As Von Moltko sat down Von Staulfcn-
berg rose to dclend the counter proposil ot
tbo army bill committee. The government
wanted an Inciease of 11,000 men ana seven

left his beat facing Urn president , and pared

Ulsmarck's four speeches , including a
social loply to Deputy Von Hue-lie , maj bo
summed up thus ;

Hlsmarck spoke with eloiiucut anima

elosedwlth these sentences , pronounced not

"If wo cannot agree about nn army on n
