Bouth Dakota has al ready passed a bill providing for the ap pointment of lta commission, and the legis lature was apprised of this fact today.

Bears wss the author of all three bills making thla provision for the three states samed. .before. 1 Apportlbnfae'nt Bill Appears. McAllister of Deuel today In the house In troduced Ills' , reapportionment bill which Was published In full exclusively by The Bee last Friday. No changea have been made In either senatorial or representative districts since the bill was glvej to the public by The Bee. - As was then pointed out, the bill Increases the number of representatives from Douglas county from nlna to thirteen and senators from three to four, giving the metropolitan county seventeen. Instead of twelve mem bers in the legislature. It combines a ainalf area, of tho western part of Doug laa with Baundera county In a new sens tfrlal district and givea It one member. .The. bill reduced the total number of senatorial districts from thirty to twenty eight, jand Increases , the number, of rep resentative districts from sixty-seven to seventy-four, - but leavea tha number of members the same as at present, 100 rep resentatives and thirty-three senators. .Lancaster gets six representatives, a gala .of two, but retains the same number. senatora, two. Countlea like Richardson, Which have but a email population and targe representation, are moat affected. Richardson has a population of 19,000, with three - members in tha house. The basis at representation intended by law la 10;' W0. Thus tinder the present law Richard son would acarcely be entitled to two. the new .bill gives Richardson only two nfemberi in 't'he ' bouse. The purport of the bill Is to equalise as nearly aa possible trtthout gerrymandering. Legislative Gossip. One of the bills recommended for passage by the committee on Judiciary waa H. R. HI, by .Rlggs , of .Douglas, amending the present law regulating the publication of liquor licenses. The present law provldea ' lhat thjma llceneea shall be punched In the newspaper of the largeat circulation, where aa the bill proposes that any paper in "cities of the metropolitan class" of 5,000 dally circulation and that in cities of the Brst clsss having a population of more than 40,000, and less than 100,000 Inhabitants any paper of 1,000 dally circulation ahall ba allowed to print these nottcea of liquor licenses,- . , The Mil ' Is being1 promoted In the Inter est .'of .'tnosa newspapers whose, limited circulations prevent them. from legitimately publishing these notices under the present law. Jt is held that it passed the btll wlll Inflict hardships upon the public, aa well as refutable saloon keepers, druggists and wholesale liquor dealera. The' purpose of the present law, which has withstood repeated attempts rat amend ment, .Is tef give the applicant for a liquor license and the public, the largest possible benefits for the least ' possible money by having notices published In the paper of largest circulation, requiring therefore but one fee from the applicant and one sub scription from the- Interested cltlsen. It furthermore restricts arbitrary Impositions for political purpoaes by boarda of fire and police commissioners or any aet of individ uals Whose duty It shall be to make these contracts. The proposed law, It la held, would' entail needless expense and serious 'hardship upon all those Interested In the publication of these notlcea. - As' every effort to pass a similar bill In former legislature's has failed, It is not thought the present legislature will be caught In thla anare. Tha Douglas county delegation la push ing the bill, adopting the same tactlca used In the promotion of the Omaha water worka and city election bills, namely, arguing to other members that, the bill meets gen eral approval. In Omaha, where,, aa a mat ter of fact', there la very pronounced op position to the bill., ' '" ' The .house revenue committee will, not report on the revenue bin belora Monday At that time it will recommend It for pae sa'ge with a tew minor amendmenta.

While under a call of the house a caucus was held and it was found the bill could not be carried with the emergency clauae. O'Neill then moved that It be recommitted. This was carried unanimously. At the afternoon session the ludiclarv committee returned "the bill telth its former ci-uuiuiuuuaiiona. - Howell rose to a point of order and said It waa the original bill that had been committed, and that the committee had reported back on the engrossed bill.

He said the rate of ' maintenance as testified to by Judson of the Twin Cities was the lowest cost per phone or line that he had ever heard of. Howell tried to show by the wltneos that ccording to the " rate charged In New York, the largest exchange in the world, counting the cost by the size of the ex change, the rates In Omaha should be much lower.

His object in making tba motion was. to try to secure consideration of ths adoption of the report of the con ference committee on the Indian appropria tion bill, which the aenate accepted yes terday. The senator aald be had been ab sent when the report waa agreed to, and that as It appeared that the aenate amend ment for an industrial acbool at Wahpetoo, N.

FAIL TO SAVEBUTLER'S SEAT Democrats Waste Honrs of Ob trartlTe Tardea, hat Are finally Beaten. WASHINGTON. Feb. 2. Amid scenes which recalled tbe memorable and excltlne- dsys of the flfty-flrst congress, James J. Butler of Missouri wss unseated today by the house and George C. II. Wagoner was aeated In his place. Tho democrats had decided at their cau cus thla morning that If this esse was railed up they would prosecute a filibuster from now until Msrch 4, regardless of con sequences upon legislation, and (hey began the fight aa soon aa the gavel fell at noon. Roll call followed, and It took over three, houra to approve the Journal of yesterday's proceedings. Then, when tha decks were cleared, the, rase waa called. A spirited debate of two hours followed, and finally, after repeated, roll calls, the case was brought to a vote.' The democrats then attempted to block things by leaving the hall, but enough ab sentees finally were brought In to make up the necersary quorum. The closing chapter waa dramatic. Mr. Dalaell (Penn.). who waa in the chair, re fused to recognize a demand for dlvlBlon, , and Mr. Richardson (Tenn.), the minority leader, stood In his place, and' denounced his' course in unmeasured terms amid the Jeers of the republican aide. The handful of democrats present were overridden roughshod, and Mr. Wagoner waa seated. The republican leadera in deciding to force this ease to a vote did ao with a per fect realization of the embarrassments which would follow if the democrats car ried out their filibuster threats and have arranged a program to reduce the minority's obstructive power to a minimum, as far aa the appropriation bills are concerned. This Is to be accomplished by a special rule which baa been tentatively prepared by which all the preliminary parliamentary steps for getting appropriation bills with senate amendmenta Into conference can be cut oft.

ELECTION FOR BONDS STARTS USUAL ROW Old-Time Method of Anchoring Loca tion by Bnlldlng rartHoase De feated. by Hawaii? Old nan ' ' , of Vetlng Indian. . . f UONfcSTEftL, S. D.. Feb. 2. ( Special.) ,! Gregory county. Pouth Dakota, waa organ lied about four ears ago with Fairfax aa the counjy seat. Recently, on account of the prospects tor tbe opening of that part of Rosebud Indian reservation within lta borders, a new town named Boneateel has ..sprung lntd existence ss a rival of the county aeat, which Is situated about aeven miles southeast of Bonesteel. Fairfax peo ple, aa a last resort to hold ths county seat, succeeded In having the county commis sioners call an election tor tbe purpose of Issuing bonds to build a courthouse. A ma jority vote of tbe county la necessary to carry the question. .Tuesday was election day. and each town vied with the other tja getting out tba voters all over the county, and when tha results was determined It wss found that Bonesteel bad won out and bad. -defeated the bond proposition by a majority of 6( votea. Indian and Other Votea. Tha election was settled, but the fun had Just commenced. Fairfax alleged that Bonesteel had drawn upon the Indian res ervation for votes. They alleged their Klok-As-'He-Jumps, Bucks-As-He-Bltes snd Chief Red Horse, and the aed warrior, Milk, and their cohorts had voted not once. but twice, yea, three times, and that in or der .to show thelf kindliness of heart to ward Boneateel had caused their squaws to fold tbelf blankets buck style, and vote agatnat the bonds.- One exuberant Fairfax partisan aald thathe counted one squaw voting four times. These allegations are denied by the Bonesteeleans; they say that tbe Indian haa a right to tote; that he's a citizen of the great state of South Da kota, and has been for these many moons, and that when a question such aa bond ing him, his ponies, squaws, dogs, oxen and asses arises, tbe Indian nas a right to de clare himself and vote his convictions; said Bonesteeleans also allege that In a tight 'fight like yesterday's, you can't tell a squaw from a buek; that In tbe trial of Colonel Forsyth for killing aquaws at the battle, pf .Wounded Knee, It waa clearly demonstrated that In a fight not even a skilled plainsman could distinguish between a buck or a squaw, owing to a similarity of dress. So if any squaws voted In Bone ateel they are guilty of dressing In men's or bucks' clothes for the purpose or de laying and hindering Fairfax In securing 16,000 worth of bonds for courthouse pur poses. ' ' Cornea Into Conrt. " Tbe trouble did not end here. The Fair fax people, through W. R. Day, ex-deputy sheriff of . tha county, - made complaint against Henry Abouretxke, and tbe sheriff cam In Wednesday night, about 1 o'clock and arrested Abouretxke, hurried him off to' Fairfax, locked. blhVth a room In a hotel and early in the morning a preliminary hearing was had, Ahoufstzke bound over, and when the: Bonesteel' attorneys, W. B. Backus, arrived -hi, haste-, Lantlng for ths lost Bonesteellte,. tttaqovered that only a bqnd of. $300 Wonld -seoure Abouretzke'a release. This, bond Via promptly furnished and 'Abotrretike returned home. A grand reception .awaited him, and be s 'now-the hero of the hour. ' ' ''. Trouble did not end here. Teh more war rants are out ' for prominent' citizens of Bonesteel, and thirty" are out for Indians, and the sheriff of thla county will be a busy man for daya to coma- Suck-As-He-Bltes la on a aplon kop on tha classlo banks of Ponca creek; he dreams of the day when Fairfax will be no longer the count seat, but that the county capltol will be near bis claim and enhance the value of his property of. every kind. When he's awake he holds bis old repeater close to his side, for he knows the sheriff Is after him. Klck-As-He-Jumps pacea the floor of hla tepea, expecting each minute that the cold, clammy band of the sheriff will slap him oh the back, and a voice, "You are my pris oner," fill his American ear. Waiting for the Attack. Bocesteel ls fortified. No more citizens will be stolen from its Incorporated pre cinct. Committees have been appointed to watch for Falrfaxltea and keep them under surveillance while la Bonesteel. An ar ray of legal talent haa been engaged to the. legal battle. - Hon. Edwin M. fitartcher, county Judge;. Theodore Landmann, state's attorney, and J. H. Valletta, all. of Fairfax, will-, atand up for their town. Bonesteel pins lta faith on W. B. Backua, Charles Melner, ex-ststs attorney, and French eV Ontls of Yankton. When the next circuit court meets there will be a time that Is a time, .and no one, at the present writing, seems to know Just wbat will be tbe out come. It Is conceded that Fairfax will lose the county seat In a short time, and that the same will be located many miles west of Its present location. An .extra aupply of bonds baa been ordered aent to Boneateel, and when all Its citizens and Indians have been arrested and the aupply ia exhausted they will order more. Change la Yardmasf era.
