The llelchstag today passed the first and second reading of th Oentrlet motion to repeal the anti-Jesuit law. A bill to repeal the anti-Jesuit law of 1872 comes up periodically In the Hclchatag and Is killed In the llundsrath or Federal Council. As a matter of fact the so-called May laws , under which during Bismarck's time the religious orders \\ero dissolved , are no longer In force and the Jesuits have nearly all returned to Germany where they virtually occupy the same position they did before 1873. The only advantage which would accrue to the Jesuits by the repeal of the exile law would bo to glvo to them In form the liberty which they now enjoy In fact and to abolish a statute which might be revived.

( Special. ) Senator Trout's bill amending the ballot law li tha only political bill discussed bo far , and today brought forth some warm arguments from the fusion members , who Insisted that the bill was an Invasion of the rights of a free people who had a right to fuse If they so desired , l-'arrcll of Mcrrlck defended the three-ring circus , and predicted that In time they would all get Into one ring , as they were proercBalnc that way very rapidly at the present time. He said only minor differ ences lu the clatforuis of the three fusion parties now existed. The solicitude ot the fuslonlsts for thn "great republican party" was not received with favor by the majority , and they em phasized their determination to pass S. F. No. 1. No reference was made by the fusion members during the debate of the well oiled veto machine In the chief executive's office. Th rovcnuo bill Introduced by Van DUSCJ of Douglas la an Important measure. It dif fers from the Pollard house bill In that It docs not present an entirely new revenue law , but tnakee Important changes In the taxation laws with a purpose of Increasing tbo grand assessment roll of the state. lUie senate cleaned up all bills on general file today that were In shape for disposal. S. P. 12 by Miller of Buffalo , to provide against platting encumbered lauds Into city or town lots , has been recommitted for amendments. Four more new bills were Introduced In the eenate today , brlnglnc the total up to 212. The rush of members to Introduce new bills has ceased. ( lulet In the House. The house presented a llstleas appearance all day , with the exception of the hour de voted to the Joint session. The members seemed unable to do anything but kill time , nnd took very little Interest In that. The committee report on ono bill In the forenoon brought out a little argument between throe or four of the members , and In committee of the whole during the afternoon the same bill H. H. 40 was again discussed. Most of the afternoon was devoted to the dissection ot H. R. 36. a bill providing for an Inheritance tax. The bill was a long one and the discussion was at times very dreary. A majority of the members seemed to have little Interest In Inheritances , and there was nn Idea abroad that the debate on the bill would result In nothing but a waste of time and that the bill would fall when It came up for final passage. There are a few unimportant hills on the general fllo to be taken up tomorrow , but It Is believed that nothing can happen to get the house down to real business while the senatorial struggle Is on , unless It bo the Im pending report of the elections committee on the Flllmore county contest. Even that mat ter la creating little general Intreest , al though It Is known that the committee Is hard at work on the recount and that the report soon to come In may call for the unseating - seating ot two members who now occupy seats on the floor of the house. Sklptou Cimc. The arguments In the Sklpton habeas cor pus case occupied the afternoon IB 'the ' dVs- trlct court , but the decision was not rendered and will not bo given out until tomorrow. The elections committee completed the cau cus of the ballots of Flllmore county with the exception of those In three precincts held back by the county judge. Few changes were found , and the result of the count as now made. It Is said , would elect ono fuslonlst and leave the other a tie with ono of the republicans. The precincts held back , however , gave a fusion majority and If they are produced in compliance with the order of the house It Is said the result will bo a report In favor of the contestees. A continued refusal to produce the ballots would leave the case very much In doubt. After hearing all the evidence the com- mktoo on elections has decided that Tay lor and Thompson , the two fuslonlsts from Flllmoro , were duly elected and are en titled to their seats. A report to this ef fect will bo submitted. I'ltOfURUI.VflS OF THE SUXATK. I'opulUt Attempt to Ilecoiumlt Proof * Ilnllot Itcform Hill Defeated. LINCOLN , Jan. 25. ( Special. ) When the senate convened today Lincoln lodge , No.3.r > , Independent Order of Good Templars , sent a written pro test against the passags of S. F. 26 , whlcn seeks to amend the Slocumb law , and re quested that the bill be rocked into Innocu ous deasuetude. One now bill was Introduced and placed on its first reading as follows : S. F. 209 By Glffert : To amend sec tions 2 and 0 of chapter Ixxvlll of the Com piled Statutes of the State of Nebraska , entitled - titled "Hoads " The follow ing bills were reported upon by the Judlclarv committeeS. . F. 30. offering a substitute bill therefor : S. F. 05 , to pasa. Canaday of Keainey moved that S. F. J , recommended to pass jestcrdny , bo recom mitted. He Mid the bill yas Intended to shut off the liberties of the voters nnd would not bo sanctioned by the masses of the pee ple. Farrell of Morrick sold the bill did not suit all ot the majority and was not fair to tlio threo-rlnged circus , as the republicans had referred to the fusion forces. He hoped the majority would not act hastily In this matter. The fusion forces were entitled to same consideration , embracing many of the state's most uubustantlal citizens. He deemed it unjust to the fuslontsts to say theV could not cuter into a three-ringed circus. Prout of Gage saw no reason for recom mitting the bill , unless It was the popultsi solicitude for tbo republican party. It pre vented men from sailing under false pre- "What are these false pretense * ? " asked Canaday of Kearney . Tor u man to stand on thrco-pUtforms and declare he supports them all , " replied Trout. "Witt only 3 per cent of Illiteracy In Ne braska , will jou maintain that > ou voters do not know lor what they are voting ? " said Canaday. "What Is the harm of standing on one' ; own platform and asking for votes of hli own party ? " replied Trout. Tarrcll again spoke in defense of hli three-ringed circus and said that the threi parties dlnagreed on minor matUra , bu1 were slowly but surely getting together. Ueynolda of Dawes at > ked a question "Ho you think thp three parties will go together by the next election and not ncet three columns on the ticket ? " "Can the republicans feel assured vvi won't get together and get there by tin next election ? " replied Farrell. Owens of Dawson also wanted to osk th ( senator from Merrlck a question. "Whal per cent of the votes of the last election were democrat , populist nnd silver repub lican ? " "That's the reason you advance In sup port of the hill , " suld Karrell. "but we'll settle the per cent among ourselves. " Fowler of Flllmore meted that the mo tion to recommit be laU on the tabl ? . 0'Nolll of Holt attempted tn debate the motion , hut was called down by a point of order. The ayes nnd nays were caled for. When the name of Miller of Buffalo waa called , he created much amusement by de livering a populist stump speech In explana tion of his vote over the protests of re publican members , who held nn explanation must be in writing and be germane to the motion. The motion to lay Canaday's motion on the table prevailed , twenty-ono republic ans voting In the affirmative and eleven fuslonlitn In the negative. After the Joint assembly the senate took a recess till 3 o'clock. In the afternoon Talbot of Lancaster In troduced a resolution touching up the tardl- ncjs of the printers In getting out the senate bills. His resolution re ids as fol lows : Whereas. It is reported to this body that the printers employed to print senate bills do not print and return said bllli to this body In the order In which they are received by the printer ; and , Whereas , a largo number of senate flies have been retained by the printer many days more than allowed under thu rules and law , it is provided , therefore , Resolved , by this senate , That the print ing committee shall be and hereby Is di rected to Insist that all senate flics shall bo printed and returned to the bill clerk In the order In which said flics are delivered to said printer , nnd that all senate llles shall bo printed and returned within the three-day limit fixed for printing suld flics. Hesolved further. That the printing com mittee is hereby instructed to see that this resolution is fully compiled with. This resolution was adopted under suspen sion of the rules.

S. F. 211 By Talbot : To provide for the disposition of the road and labor taxes in counties under township organization. S. F. 212 By Talbot : To amend sections 76 , 7S , 79 , 80 and 82 , of chapter Ixxvlll of the Compiled Statutes of Nebraska of 1897. S. r. 210 by Van Duscn of Douglas Is an Important measure to amend the revenue laws of the state Instead of enacting an en tirely new law as Is proposed by the Pollard bill In the house. Under Its provisions the grand assessment roll ot the state would be raised from $167,000.000 to about $600,000,000. Accordingly the bill proposes to reduce the maximum levy of the state , county and city boards. Valid tax deeds are provided for , and Interest on tax certificates reduced from 20 to 10 per cent , with n five-year redemp tion limit. Other deficiencies in the present rovcnuo law are corrected and all good features retained. The senate went Into committee of the whole with Holbrook of Dodge In the chair. S. F. 72 was flrst brought forth. It re peals section 4 of chapter xxvlll , 1897 stat utes , relating to fees of registers In chanc ery , such an office- not now being In exVst- cnce in this state. The title was amended and it was recommended for passage. S. F. 50 , by Allen of Furnas , to transfer the penitentiary building fund , normal build ing fund , state bond fund , reform school building fund arid other sundry funds to tn * general fund , was next consVdercd. Senator Allen said tLero was about $35,000 In these various funds that was now Inaccessible , as the purposes for which the funds were cre ated bad ceased to exist. The largest fund Is the balance of the state relief fund , which amounts to $26,404.4" . This fund wan cre ated several years ago to relieve drouth suf ferers. The bill was recommended to pass. 9. F. 55 , by Talbot of Lancaster , repeal ing the law requiring the clerk of the supreme premo court to notify district judges of the time cases from their districts are set on the supreme court calendar , was next In order. Senator Talbot said the supreme court had ceased to follow that law , and It was not deemed necessary any longer. The bill was nlbo amended to allow Judges until the second Tuesday in January to fix terms of court Instead of on January 1. The bill was recommended for passage as amended. The committee then arose , and the sen ate adjourned. OF Tim nousi : . ConHlilernlile Time Tnken tip In Din- ouHHloii of Inheritance THY Hill. LINCOLN , Jan. 25.

" Mr. Crockett explained his bill , and said that having acted in the capacity of shcrlD for six years , ho hail noticed tbo necessity for such an amendment. McCarthy of Dlxon spoke against the minority report He said that the amend ment to the existing law would tlmply en tail additional expense to those interested In the property appraisal. Kastcrllng of Buffalo and Fisher of Dawes talked for the minority report , holding thai tbo amendment would result In giving UK property owners a better chance to looli after their interests. Roll call was demanded on the motion tc adopt the minority report , and the rcporl was adopted by a vote of 58 to 27. The committee on revenue and taxatlor reported H. R. 36 for passage , and H. R. It for Indefinite postponement. The bills were similar , each providing for an Inherltana tax.

R. 36 , the Grosvenor hill to provide for an Inheritance tax , was taken up , and after some minor amendments were adopted there was a motion to delay further con sideration of the bill for two weeks , many of the members explaining thit they needed more time to study the measure The ma jority of the committee decided , however , that , bURlncM being slack at this time , It would be proper to go ahead with the dls- The principal section of the bill , which provides for the payment of the tax to the treasurer of the proper county , reads In part as follows : Where the beneficial Intercut ! ! to any prop , erty or income therefrom shall pass to or for theUBC of any father , mother , husband , wife , child , brother , sister , wife or widow of the son or husband of the daughter or any child or children adopted as nncli In con formity with the laws of the state of Ne braska , or to any person to whom the de ceased for not less than ten jeara prior to death stood In thp acknowledged relation of a parent or to any lineal descendant born In lawful wedlock , In every such case the rate of tax shall be $1 on every $100 of the rlear market value of such property received by each person and dt and after the same rate for every lees amount , provided that any estate which may be valued at n Ires sum than $25,000 shall not be subject to any such duty or taxes and the taxes to be levied In the above COPIB only upon the excess of $25- 000 received by each person ; when the ben eficial Interests to any property or income therefrom shall pats to or for the use of any uncle , aunt , niece , nephew or any lineal de scendant of the same , In every such case the rate of such tax shall bo $2 on every $100 of the clear market value of such property received by each person on the excess of $2,000 so received by each person.

The bill goes further and provides for the manner of the collection of the tax , nnd the charging of interest at the rate of 7 per cent per annum , providing the tnx Is not paid within six months after the death ot the decedent. i\ans of Adams made a fight to have the provision stricken out , which put a tnx on direct Inheritances.
