tensions and divisions that unfortunately exlft In the democratic party , " ho began. "It would fcom that the minority might , without friction , unite en some policy. When we oo our great opponent united on all ques tions , sotnetlmffl against Its judgment , and turn to see our side hopelessly divided on a mcro quofitlon of parliamentary proctdure , U Is a pitiful light wo present to the coun try " He had striven In every way an honorable man could to prevent dissensions He re lated liow Hit democrats had fought off con- Kldcrlig slxlien amendments to the Indian approprlatlr.nl , when It had afterward * dc- velop d that the develcpmcnts were of no lit tle Importance , that there had been a divi sion on only three of lliem Today the demo- cratn hid quarreled over the bankruptcy bill. The republicans could not refuse to consider 11 without reflecting on their col leagues In the- senate , for all of the eight vote against It there had been can by democrats , five of whom v/cro opposed to nny bankruptcy bill. The nonato had passed a geol bitkruptcy bill , co the republican1) were In no haste to allow It lo be consid ered. When ho had almost secured an agree- went to take tip the > bill the democrats had ntlrrcd up this unseemly discussion. Mr. Dalle/ had wondered , ho said , when ho had seen the speaker assailed from day to day , that he had not sooner Invited a resolution which would nhlft the responsibility from the npcakcr to the house , The gentleman from Kansas ( Mr. Simpson ) had refused to Intro duce such a resolution when the apeakor In vited him to do so , because ho did not want the comml'tccs appointed. "There Is not a man on this nldo of the housu who wants the committees appointed , " Mr. Halley asserted Messrs. Lcwln. Barlow of California and Simpson declared that they did. "Th n there are more unwise men on thin sldo than I thought , " Mr. Ualley re- SIMPSON . Mr. Slrtpfon Interrupted to say that re publican leglilatlon was no worse than demo cratic , whereupon Mr. Halley paid , with a wine of hla hand to the democrats. "I com- moml that to jour followers on this sldo of the house. " Incidentally , ho said , the coun try would never take the gentleman from Kansas seriously. Mr. Lewis had said , Mr. Halley continued. that he desired the free coinage of silver , yet ho knew thcro was no more chance of a committee of thli house reporting a free silver bill than for an Infidel to enter the Kingdom of heaven. Prosperity was what every one wanted ; If the rcpubllcan gave prosperity , they would bo given a vote of confidence ; If they did not , a return to bi metallism was assured. Mr. Cochran , democrat of Missouri , spoke briefly In favor of free coinage Mr Slmpcon put In a few more remarks. The adoption of a resolution he deemed un necessary , because the speaker would defy that no he had the rule of the houae. He Itad thought when the democratic party kicked out the goldbuR gang Whitney , Hill nnd rtl'ers. who had come to Chicago on a special train that It had reformed , but when ho taw It acting as a trailer to the republicans he despaired of Its reformation Itcpubllcans would vote against the resolu tion , because they feared that If they did not the speaker would not give them good commlttro Mfllgnments Nero could have said Unit the Romans had the power to di rect him to change his policy as well as the czar of the house , A substitute wna presented by Mr. Fleming , democrat of Georgia , for the resolution , re citing that under the rulra already adopted It was the speaker's duty to appoint the committees. niNOLHY SPEAKS. The only speech made for the republicans was by Mr. Dlngloy. Tlio Issue , If It vag to be presented at all , should bo frankly nnd squarely stated , ho said. Thc > resolution/ ? presented made It uncertain whether the upeaker was directed to appoint the com mittees at once. He took Issue- with the contention that the speaker should do this An extraordinary s"sslon had been called for the ono purpose of providing revenue for the government The house Ind accomplished Uswork and was waiting for the action of the senate Ho did not believe It was wise to onte upon general legislation OP do more than take up such Incidental matters as might arUo connected with the revenue. To make the lame clear , Mr. Dlngloy of fered a substitute amendment for the reso lution , which was : "Hesolved , That tlui speaker bo directed1 to Immediately appoint the committees of the bouse. " Mr. Lewis , In closing the delntc , expressed surprise diet .Mr. Bailey , nftei * approving the icsolutlon when It was presented to him , per sonally , had seen fit to oppose It In debate. Tlilg aroused Mr. Halley to a hot. . rejoinder tint the resolution which , Mr. Lewis pre sented to the house was not the same he had shown him The Dlngley substitute was adopted and the vote on the resolution as amended wis taken by roll call and resulted : Ayes , 52 ; nays , 124 ; present. 13. those ansnenng pres ent being paired.

Senator Tlllman of South Caiollna wa heard from briefly and pointedly In the senate today after a allcncu of many -weeks , and as usual his re marks served to nrouso a lively contro versy. it occurred during the considera tion of the " "Krc-o Homestead " Bill. Mr. Mor gan proposed an amendment giving all pub lic lands unoccupied by 1000 lo the several stales anu territories. Mr. Haw ley declared this to bo a startling proposition and Mr. Tlll man Bought to oppose It by a series of mies- t ons addressed to Mr. Morgan. Someof the ( jueitlotm referred to the amendment as a proposition to " " "gobblo" and "steal" the Interest of states In public lands. .Mr. Mor- Kau lu , jurn made a sharp and sarcastic ro- Jolnor and for a tlmo senators and spectators vvoro Interested In the animated flre cross After Mr. Morgan bad protested against the interruption as a breach of the privileges of the bt-nato , the Incident was closed by a statement from Mr. Tlllman disclaiming purposeof being discourteous to the Ala any bama senator. The .Morgan amendment was withdrawn and an agreement reached for a llnal vote on the free homestead bill at 3 n. tomorrow , liarly In the day Mr. Morgan n endeavored to secure a vote on the Cuban resolution. It went over , at the request of Mr. Halo of Malno , In order that speeches In opposition may bo made , At 2 o'clock the bill Kuovvn as the 'Troo You don't know where you got that cold. Do you know where you can get the cure for it ? Every drug store keeps Ajrer's Cherry Pectoral. / / cures coughs and colds. Homestead bill" was taken up. The bill re leases settlers on pUbHc land acquired from Indians from the payments now required by law , and also given frco homesteads on such lands not now occupied. An amendment was offered by Mr. Morgan Riving all public lands , not taken up by homestead entry on January 1 , 1903 , to the feveral states and territories for educational purposes. Mr. Morgan's proposition aroused much opposition Mr. Haw ley , republican of Connecticut , ctiarncterbetl It as a startling reversal of the policy of the government. Involving the coni- plcto disposal of all public lands , with their Incalculable wealth of mined and forest. The debalo was enlivened by a sharp ex change between Mr. Tlllman of South Car olina and Mr. Morgan Mr Tlllman advanced down the aisle until abreast of Mr Morgan , and then In hl.i characteristic explosive rtylo with Index finger aimed at the Alabama sen ator began firing a volley of questions on the Justice of giving all the government lands to states , thus depriving the other btates of federal aid to education "Don't } ou suppose , " said Mr. Tlllman , that wo have as many poor children needing cducatlonljs you have , and as a matter of de cency do Jou propose to gobble up all of these lands ? " ife "I am not a gobbler , " returned Mr. Morgan , "so that the rulra applying to gobblers do not apply to me. " Mr. Tlllnian Insisted that.the Morgan prop osition meant that one class of states wet ] to gobble up all the lands. Ho added that hl.s state already had douo much for Mr. Morgan's state , peopling It and redeeming It from ( ho Indians. "If so , " replied Mr. Morgan with a touch of sarcasm , "I am willing to vote to return to South Carolina all the people she over gave to Alabama. " "I have never heard It Insinuated they were not respectable people , said Mr. Tlll man. "Respectable and poor , " observed Mr. Mor gan. gan."Yes , poor , God knows , continued Mr. Till man , "and because we are poor wo protest against your stealing what they have left. " For the first tlmo Mr. Morgan ( showed signs of In Ration and turning to the prcsid Ing olllccr , Mr. Mantle being temporarily lu their chair , he protested against the use of the words "gobblo" and "stealing. " Without waiting for a ruling from the chair the colloquy proceeded. "If It Is not stealing It Is very much akin to it , " remarked Mr. Tlllman. Mr Morgan said It was not surprising to hear of stealing from a senator who had pro posed to relieve hU state from the federal taxes on liquor. "Wo have made the liquor lawa of South Carolina so as to benefit the poor , educate the children , reduce drunkenness one half and shut up every barroom lu the state , " re sponded Mr. Tlllman. Mr. Morgan , somewhat milled , said he would not have entered upon this subject If ho had thought It would lead the senator ( Tlllman ) Into such an Intoxicating strain. "I have been hero a long time , " continued Mr. Morgan , "and this la the first time a senator has attempted to take me off my feet by remarks personally offensive , even though uttered In a spirit of levity .ind badinage " After Mr. Morgan had discussed the merits of his amendment Mr. Tlllman secured the iloor and disclaimed any purpose to i.peak flippantly or discourteously to Mr. Morgan to take him off his feet. This closed the Inci dent. dent.Mr. Mr. Morgan finally withdrew his amend ment in order not to embarrass the bill. An agicement was then reached that a final vote on the bill be taken at 3 p. in. tomor row. row.The senate then , at 3.10 p. m. , adjourned. HKPOirr o.v 'inii MW TAHUT uii.i , . for Holding It Thrown Uponi Join's of AoMiiln. WASHINGTON , May 3. Senator Allison , chairman of the republican subcommittee which Is preparing the tariff bill for the senate , had a conference today with the dem ocratic members of the finance committee and arranged with them a. program for get ting the bill Into the senate. According to this agreement the bill will bo reported to the full committee tomorrow , if the repub licans find they deslro to hold it no longer , and It will then bo passed on to the senate as soon as the republicans make It manifest that they have a majority favorable to its being reported. , > Mr. Allison renewed jhe effort to secure consent to having the bill reported after tomorrow's meeting without conditions , but the d mocrats refused to accede. They would only agrco not to Insist upon holding the bill in committee for detailed Inspection after the republicans had shown that thej had a clear majority In committee favorable to the bill. Senator Allison accepted these terms This arrnnpement will throw the responsi bility of deciding the length of the time the bill shall bo held upon Senator Jones of Nevada , sliver republican , who holds the bal ance of power. Ho was opposed at first to an Immediate report , but the Indications now are quite decisive that ho will not lend himself to any prolonged consideration of the bill In committee IJQ has practically said as much to his friends. The democrats expect that the bill will bo held In committee for two or three dajs , but do not count upon retaining it for the two weeks , which is the tlmo they first asked for. After It is re ported the bill will bo allowed to Ho on the table for ten days or two weeks before bclnx taken up for debate. TLoro Is determined opposition on the part of a number of eastern senators to the proposition to plnco hides on the dutiable list This movement has taken definite shape. It Is led by Senator Ledge of 'Massachusetts ' and Senator Fryo of .Maine. Both these sena tors have had frequent Interviewj with the sub-cominlttco with the hope of provalllns upon them to alter their decision. They have , however , received no assurance of acquies cence and the Impression Is geneial in the aonato that when the bill is reported It will to found to contain a provision for a hide duty of 1 % cents per pound. Some of the opposition senators nnrcunco their intention to carl } the fight to the Be unto and they hopa to gain the a&slstanco of domociatlc senator ? who oppose a duty on raw material.

Dr. Huntpr , the republican candi date for senator from Kentucky , who was forced to withdraw , had a brief talk with Mr McKlnlcy about the Kentucky patronage which has been held up pending the result of the senatorial election. Nothing , It Is announced , will bo done In the matter until the arrival hero next Wednesday of Senator- elect Deboc. Dr. Hunter says ho Is not a candidate for any position lu the gift of the president. Ho will prcos his contest against Congicssman Rhca for a seat In the house. It has been definitely decided that Na tional Commlttccman J. K. Boyd of Noitli Carolina will bo appointed solicitor of Internal revenues , and his nomination is expected this week. Congressman Nortbway of Ohio presented General Robert U. Sampson of Arizona , a former resident of the Buckeye state , who aspires to bo consul general to Mexico. Tor this post thcro are already ninety applicants The president Informed Mr. Northway that further consular appointments , as a rule , would bo postponed until after the adjourn ment of congress. There may bo appoint ments In exceptional cases from tlmo to time , but the general policy of the president will bo to hold up this class of appointments until after the tariff bill Is passed and congress has adjourned. Senator Martin of Virginia accompanied a delegation of thirty-four , headed by Mayor Williams of vVlnchrater , who formally Invited the president to be present at the Stionan- dah Valley Agricultural fair next September. Inasmuch aa Mr. McKlnloy received lib Ma- sorilo degree at Winchester during the war , and as u Masonic delegation will call next week to urge his acceptance of this Invita tion , the Winchester delegation liavo strong hopes that he will accept.

LINCOLN , May 3. ( Special ) An effort Is being made by populists today to explain thf error made In the enrolling room where by the salaries of the superintendents of the thrco asylums were raised $ " ' 00 each after the salary bill had passed the legislature. U la claimed tint the engrossed copy of the bill was so changed and plastered with amendments that It could not be uocd as copy In wrlttlng the enrolled bill , and that a printed copy of the bill waa used , the amendments being Interlined. The person who corrected up this printed copy failed to change the amount of the superin tendents' salaries to Hie figures agreed upon by the house nnd'senate committees. These who know something of the strong effort that watt made to keep the salaries at $2,600 a > car do not hesitate to say that this Is only an attempt to shift the responsibility of making the change from an empiove to some member of the house , the preparing of the extra printed copy furnishing an excellent opportunity to make desired changes In the billThe The officials whoso salaries are affected have not expressed themselves on the sub ject since the discovery of the change was made. During the legislative session Super intendent Damcrcll of the Hastings asylum stated that ho would icslgn If his salary waa cut below $2,500. He said that the furnish ing of the living expenses of his family by the Institution was no advantage and that he would gladly furnish this out of his own pocket If a separate residence could bo pro vided conveniently near. Governor Kolcomb today gave to the pwa the followlrg "Apropos of the salary ap propriation bill , as enrolled , carrying 52.509 per annum for the three superintendents of the hospitals for the Iraano , Instead of $2.000 each , which It Is claimed was all that was appropriated by the legislature , the error was discovered and discussed in this office when the bill was before me for conulclera- tlon. At that tlmo nothing could be done ex cept to approve thrto Items as presented In the enrolled bill or disapprove them , and thereby pi event nny appropriation whatever for salailcs for superintendents for these thrao Institutions for the blennlum The bill was approved upon the theory that the ap propriation for salailos for thcso three su perintendents was the amount actually passed by each branch of the legislature , viz. $2,000 each per annum. Tills view Is clearly supported by the decision of the supreme court In the State ex rol Casper ot al against Moore , 37 Neb. 13. As to how the error came into the enrolled bill I am at this time unable to express an opin ion. " ERRORS IN BOND AMOUNTS The bond clerk In the auditor's office is of the opinion that the sending out of state ments to county clerks notifying them or the amount accrued on county Doiuls is utu- Ics3 , the clerks relying on their own booKs and paying no attention to the statements. An instance is given where the bond cleik In 1891 certified to the clerk ot I'latto county that the interest on the $ SC.OOO refunding bonds of that countj was $3,7SO , when the amount should have been $3S70. The same error appears in the statements every voar slnco 1891 , and no word of complaint has been received from the holder of the bonds or from the county clerk , which goes to show that the statement Is disregarded , and the lovj Is made for the true amount from the county clerk's books. Another error found by Bond Cleik Simpson today affects rierco county. In 1S90 that county voted bonds to the amount of $25,000 to build a new court house. The proposition called for twenty-car bonds , and provided that no levy should bo made for the payment of the same until 1S91 , at which tlmo a10 per cent levy should be made , and the same each year thereafter until the bonds were paid. In 1894 the bond clerk sent a state ment to the clerk of Platte county , giving notice that a levy of $1,250 must be made for the pajmont of bonus iho same error was repeated In 1S95 and 1S9C , and no objec tion has boon made 'by ' the countv clerk. Sheriff S. Knudsen of Phcips county was hero today to land four prisoners In Iho pen itentiary. They were all sentenced at the April term of court. C. Christiansen goes up for two years for embezzlement , D. M. Conard three years for attempted wife mur der , C. W. Rogers and John Wilson each three years for burglary. The state auditor has been mandamused to compel the payment of the salary of W. II. Wheeler , stenographer for the Judge of the Second district for the months of July , August and September , 1S96 Wheeler claims that Tom Chapman , the son of Judge Chap man , was appointed to succeed Mm lu Octobbr , and ihat the new appointee diew all the salary for the three months named.

Melllrott Deelnren It Imii | > nl- tilu for .Mm. .lonrn ( o Iliivc ISettilint She , Swore 'I o. PONCA , Neb , May 3 ( Special Telegram ) All the testimony in the Goodmanson mur der case was supposed to have been sub mitted last Saturday at 3.30 p. m with the chances all In favor ot acquittal , but the testimony of < Mrs W. H. Jones of Pendcr has caused consternation In the court and particularly with the citizens of Pendcr nnd they are truly very Indignant over the mat ter The state has taken Immediate action and today placed witnesses on the stand to rebut this unexpected evidence and Mrs. Jones on Saturday evening testified that on the day of iho death of the deceased , from ono of the rooms on the west sldo ot the hall leading to the defendant's oillce In the McIII- ron building , she observed the deceased open a small paper and Uko a ( quantity of whllo powder , presumably strychnine Deceased waa at the tlmo on her way to the defend ant's olfico and she stopped to take the powder at the head of tno stairs , at which place she died She also made the state ment previously that she knew nothing of Iho case. The state will endeavor to prove conclusively that li would be Impossible for her to wltncus silcli an act from this room and that the room was occupied by Jeweler Holzworth of Pendcr , and tint on this par ticular day the room was locked and Holz worth had the hey In his pocl.ct. The witness said that for fear she vvfuld bo called upon to give evidence In the case she had said nothing about her observations. This cvl- deuce will possibly have but little weight with the Jury and will only bo damaging to the defendant. The final witness called by the elate th's ' morning was II C McIIIron He was placed on the stand for the express purpose of Im peaching the testimony of Mrs. Mary L Jones ot Pendcr. II C. McIIIroii is the owner of the block wherein the defendant's office is situated Ho testified that prior to the 9th day of September the Jones family had occupied these two rooms as living apartments , but slnco that tlmo ono of the rooms had been cleaned , locked and the other one , since about this time , was oc- .cuplcd by Jewolr Holzwoith end wee also locked McIIIron also testified to the num ber of kejs to the several doors of the building and said ho had both ke\s to the doo'-a of this room and that Mis Jones had never made a demand for them at any time , that the rooms contained no papers or cai- bolto acid , ao Mrs. Jones testified. Other people might have had kejs to unlock the doors , ho was not positive about this. Ho also testified to other ourrounding chcum- srtauccs and said that ho came to teatlfy of his own free will mid had not been sub poenaed until ha reached I'onca on Sunday night. Cross examination elicited that ho had no particular prejudice against Goodmanson The effect of McHlron's tc.sttmony , which was the only rebuttal testimony offered by tbo state , goes to show that It was utterly impcalblo for Mrs Jones to obseive the cir cumstances to which she testified , and her evidence will piobably have but little vvclKh with the Juiy. Counsel ibis afternoon Introluced their arguments The opening was conducted by Hon W. P. Norris on tbo part of the prose cutlon. The case will icach the Jury aboul Wednesday noon. South Omaha .News Councilman liarrott haa been working for some time on a scheme to open Q sheet fron Twentieth east to the Thirteenth street bouie vard. Thla street from Seventeenth street east 1-as never been dedicated , neither has the grade been cstabl'shed ' Mr. Barrett hab obtained from 1) . Jettcr the promise that the necessary land will bo dedicated to the city for street purposes , thus the principal obstacle to the work has b en overcome. Mr. Jettcr owns a largo tract of land In that section of the cltj. Councilman Ilarrett's Idea Is to have Q street placed In good condition for travel and oxpeets to bring Sarpy county farmers Into the city over a good road , instead of com pelling them to go through the Albright bottoms toms and over a road which It appears can not bo kept In rrpalr With the opening of tlio boulevard a good road from the business part of the city would be a necessity , and as there seems to bo some doubt as to the tlmo when N street will be opened , Mr Dar rott has concluded to push the Q street road The city engineer will bo Inatrueted to make the survey as soon as the land has been dedicated , C'ATTI.n COVItJ PROM CAI.IPOIIMA.

Stiles arrived from Amcdeo , lessen county , Cal. , yester day with a train of sixteen cars of hay-fed cattle for this maikct. This Is the ilnat ot a thirty-car bhipment which was started April 23 and the first shipment lo this market bj these cattlemen. Messrs Murdock and Stiles have been In the llvo stock busineta for a good many years and were well pleaded with bath the signs of energy and life displayed in the market and with the prices received. There were 709 head In the shipment , C34 belonging to Mr , Murdoclc , being the last of a druve of 1,450 head fed by him last winter , the other soventy-flvo head were the properly of Mr. Stllcj , who raised as well as fed them. The cattle locked rcrnarkabl/ well , considering they had Just completed an l.SOO-mllo lido and bad been driven two days before load ing' . Although i ever having been fed any thing but hay , these cattle compared favor ably with corn-fed cattle under the pamo con ditions. Mr. Murdock said that San Fran cisco was his usual market , but prices there were so low at present that ho decided to como east. By so doing ho made a handsome profit.

Besides allowing the bills , a largo amount of business Is to bo transacted. In refeicnco to filling tbo office of building Inspector , the mayor and mem bers of the council Imvd about decided to add the duties of the Inspector to those of the city engineer and thus obviate the ne cessity of making any appointment. If this 1s done , all fees received by the engineer for permits , etc , , will bo turned Into the city treasury. Whllo the total amount of fees will not be largo , the plan Is well thought of and will mean a considerable gain lo the city In Iho course of a year. The liquor license will remain the same as last year , namely $ EX)0 ) for the license and an pccupatlon tax of $100 , The Sunday clca- Ing question will also come up aga-ln.
