An adjournment could bo Imd by Wednesday , Mr. Crisp said , If the president should act on the bill tomorrow , Tliu only legislative matter pending on which action Is hoped for Is the alcohol bill , now before thu neimte , but this appears to bo affected by the Murphy resolution postponing all tariff legislation , and In went the house will not be likely to defer adjournment for It.

Kor fifteen or twenty minutes today the business of the oonato was suspended while the sorge.uit-at- nrms was sent In search of an actual quo rum. The senate was eighteen short of a voting quorum , only twcnty-flvo senators having voted on a non-political motion , thus allowing that congress Is slowly disintegrat ing. The four supplemental tariff blllx were all reported from the finance committee and sent to the calendar. Several bills uero passed , among them the bill for the speedy prosecution ol the claim of the United States ugalnst the estate of the Into Lclaml Stan ford. At 1:10 : p. m. the senate adjourned until Wednesday , after an executive session lasting twenty minutes. When the senate mot Mr. Harris reported the amended sugar bill and the coal , Iron ore and barbed wire bills. Inquiries were made as to what had become of the other amend ments offered to the sugar bill , but Mr , Harris said that It was not usual to report back amendments rejected In committee. Mr. Allison , republican of Iowa , said that the action of the senate last Saturday on Mr. Mandcrson's amendment when the vote was 21 to 20 and only failed for lack of a quorum should bo regarded as Instruction to the com mitted to report the amendment favorably. Mr. Allison stated that the free barbed wlro bill doss not provide for free barbed wlro at all , sis It plai\co a d'uty ' upon the manu factured article while , admitting the material fro ? . Ho reminded the senate that the Wilson bill provided for a 25 per cent ad valorem duty on barbed- wire , but the senate had reduced It. Mr. Aldrlch , another republican member of the finance committee , denied the substi tute bill just reported was by the unanimous vote of the committee , as It had been opposed - posed by all the republican members. The liouso had dealr1 to put barbed wire on the free list to benefit the farmer , but In Its liaKto It hud done just the opposite. Mr. Chandler wanted to know what became of his amendment repealing and canceling the late tariff act. Mr. Harris gave as his reply that he had been Instructed to report the bill back with an amendment providing for a duty of 40 per cent. Mr. Mitchell , republican of Oregon , gave no tice that If the sugar bill was called up at this session he would offer an amendment rc- onactlng the wool schedule of 1S90. The bills placing wool , coal and Iron on the free Hat wore ordered placed on the calendar. The senate went into executive session , but owing to the lack of a quorum adjourned till Wednesday. Wednesday.SUOAIl SUOAIl HILL GUANOES. The sugar bill , as agreed upon , Is amended so as to provide for a duty of 10 per cent straight on sugar without any differential on refined sugar or any extra duty on sugar Imported from countries paying a bounty Jn other woids. It Is the new tariff bill rate minus the differential. It Is the Jones amendment except that his amendment pro vided for only 30 per cent. The idea of the democratic members of the committee Is that this rate will furnish snfnclont revenue without giving the Sugar trust any ad vantages. The coal bill was amended so as to pro- vldo for reciprocity on this article by tlio ad mission free of duty coal from countries which admit coal from this country free. Coal Imported Irom countries that Impose a duty on our ccnl Is to bo made dutlnblo at the rate In existence when this bill shall go Into effect. The amendment to the barbed wlro bill provides for the trso admission cf barbed wlro and oil other fencing wlro , and the rods from which they arc made. The free Iron ere bill Is not amended. The republican member ! ) of the committee offered amendments of their own to the bill. One of the amendments offered was that pre sented In the senate by Senator Hill for the repeal of the Income tax. They also sought to have the revenue duty supplanted by a provision for free sugar with a bounty. . They voted solidly against the bills , but did not seek to delay the report upon them. Senator Whlto attended upon the committee mittee- meeting for the first time , and acted In perfect harmony with the older demo cratic members thereof. The house bill to provide a homo for aged nnd Infirm colored people went over until the next s'sslon. The senate bill to push the claim at the United States against the estate of I/el.ind Stanford waa passed. INDIAN acnooi. HITK HIM , I > AHSII > .

CONUlli : ? * WILU INVESTIGATE , TOO. liouso Cuininlttoo Wants Some ItcHtrietlons on Iliillroinl StrlUi ) . WASHINGTON , Aug. 20. Members of the house committee on commerce have not aban doned the project of holding an Investigation of the recent railroad strike , for which a resolution Is before the commmlttee. The appointment of a commission by President Cleveland to conduct a similar investigation Is thought to have forestalled action by the committee , and for a time the Idea of a con gressional Investigation was dropped. H Is thought by members that the Inquiry by the commission , now In progress. Is In tended principally to gain Information on the questions of capital and labor Involved and their solution. Supporters of the resolution before the committee deslro a report regarding the ef fect of the railroad strike upon commerce between the states. Two or three members favor laws which would control railroad em ployes , so that general strikes , paralyzing commerce , could not bo Inaugurated without due notice. They regard the railroads in a measure as public highways which should bo under public control. An effort will bo made to have a commit tee meeting called next week to report a resolution for an Investigation during1 IN- recess. Will Gladstone come to America ?

While It Is expected that the authorities ot that place will see that the law relative to prize fighting Is strictly observed , the governor expressed his Intention or writing Immediately to the county attorney , Instruct ing him not to allow the affair to take place. Whether or not rin extra session of the legislature will be called for the purpose of dovlslnc means to alleviate the suffering of those who have been rendered destitute from the effects ot the drouth , the governor Is not yet ready to state.

SHEEDY AGAIN. The case of Mrs. Mary Shecdy against James H. McMurtry has been appealed to the supreme court. The case was fought stub bornly In the lower courts and resulted In McMurtry's favor. There are several points of Interest about It and It will be watched carefully by the legU fraternity. It seems that Mrs. Shcedy entered Into an agreement to sell the defendant certain pieces of prop erty for the sum of $25,000 , which agree ment ho has refused to fulfill. When the agreement was made It was supposed by Mc Murtry that Mrs. Sheedy was yet single , but It transpired that she had married Max Brust , previously , but his name did not ap pear on the agreement with his wife's , but Mrs. Shecdy told the court that she had en tered Into an agreement with her husband whereby he was not to have any Interest In her estate. Intsead of Inheriting one-half of the estate of her former husband , as Mc Murtry supposed , she has only a dower In terest of one-third. T"here was a shooting affair this morning In the house of W. F. Hargrove , living near Ninth nnd G streets. Mr. Hargrove , who Is a brakeman on the Burlington road , relates that ho came homo unexpectedly at an early hour this morning and discovered a man In the house. He got his shotgun and fired at him , but whether It took effect ho does not know , but he thinks It did. Both Hargrove and his wife are very reticent about the affair. LINCOLN IN BRIEF.

NORTH PLATTE , Neb. , Aug. 20. ( Special Telegram to The Bee. ) Alva R. Smith was shot and almost Instantly killed Saturday morning- . Smith lived In the extreme south western corner of this county. Coroner Somers has just returned after holding an Inquest. It was the supposition at first that Smith committed sulcldo.t The Inquest de veloped considerable doubt as to this hy pothesis. The wound could not have been easily sclf-lnlllctcd , the bullet entering the right side , well back , and ranging forward to pass out near the left nlpplo. Mrs. .Smith claimed that she was awakened by the re port ; that she saw the revolver lying on the floor , picked It up , and then , ascertaining that her husband was dead , she Immediately alarmed the neighbors. The case Is a pecu liar one , and further developments are an ticipated. That the deceased came to his death from the effects of a pistol shot wound received In some way unknown , was the effect of the verdict of the coroner's jury. "Squaw" Mnn'ri Children Kxclmloil. DECATUR. Neb. , Aug. 20. ( Special to The Bee. ) At the recent Indian payment made to the Omahas at their agency Instructions wcro sent from the secretary ot the Interior to the Indian agent of the Wlnnebago and Omaha Indians that all children born since 1SS7 of whlto fathers were to bo stricken from the roll and receive no annuity. The agent carried out Instructions , and It natur ally made quite a commotion among the white men who have married Into the tribe and were Interested to the amount of quite a number of children. But there was no use complaining , so the next best thing was to call a general council of the Indians and se cure an adoption of their children Into the tribe. The pow-wow was held yesterday to discuss the matter at their agency , ten miles north of here. The whlto men were there with three or four beeves and a wagon load of flour , and probably a hundred pounds ot coffee , the whites knowing If the In dians' paunches were well filled the adoption was easy. But the adoption was not so easy as anticipated , and after whlllng away almost the entire afternoon lu wrangling the matter was put Into the hands ot the "big twelve , " that Is , the twelve head chiefs of the tribe. Their advice was that a con sultation with the agent would be the best they could do. So the way the condition of affairs look now the chances for the adop tion ot the children are very slim. Thu total number struck from the roll Is about forty. Weeping AVuter'B Iteunlon Opens Today. WEEPING WATER , Neb. , Aug. 20.
