3 ( I X WADING TIlROLGll THE BILLS OorernoT Mickey Hal Diipaeed of All but Eight at tbt Present Time. NO CHANGE IN THE APPROPRIATIONS Chief Executive Ham Mnkn of Rla Stuff Bishop Rouram Makes Denlsl of Story Rniri log Vlalt to Rome. (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN'. April 11. (Special.) Gov ernor MlcVey has worked faithfully today on the bills passed by the late legislature, and aa a consequence baa only eight more bills upon which to stamp his approval or disapproval. These will be acted upon Monday. This afternoon he signed the ap propriation bllla without cutting out a single item. The governor went over the Items carefully with Senator Anderson be fore affixing his signature to the measures. At one time he thought to veto the appro priation of $4,500 to pay for the Cobbey statutes, but did not do so. "The legislature passed the measure ever my veto," said the governor, "and therefore I signed it. Had I refused to sign the bill It would look as though I waa taking advantage of the members wbo voted for it, as they would have no redress this rear." One bill has been lost out In the shuffle. This Is the $10,000 appropriation for . the Lincoln monument. The bill at one time killed In the senate by Indefinite postponement and the record was made on the face of it. Later it was recalled from the house and passed. Upon its return to the house it waa placed with the Indefi nitely postponed" bills by a clerk and not resurrected until yesterday afternoon. That was too late for Speaker Mockett to sign it. As the appropriation was constl- , tutlonal that the city of Lincoln raise an equal amount for the erection of the mon ument, probably the losing of the bill makes little difference, aa the city of Lin coln has a few troubles of Its own at the present writing. Part of Exposition Commlaalon. In conformity with the appropriation of $35,000 for the Ioulelana Purchase exposl . tlon to be held is St. Louis, Governor Mickey today appointed on the commission C. H. Morrill of Lincoln and O. W. Wat tles of Omaha. The third member of the commission has not yet been appointed. Governor Mickey was In Omaha last night and tendered the place to Mr. Wattles and it was accepted. Arbor Day Proirnm. The state officers will observe Arbor day by planting a tree each In the stats house yard. Governor Mickey probably will call a meeting of the officers aa soon as the rush of bill signing Is over and a program for the day will be arranged. A. Watte of the Department of Bute, who has had the matter In charge, is In receipt of a commu nication from Joy Morton of Chicago, stat ing that the officers will be furnished trees from Arbor lodge. The forester at that place will select the trees and they will be shipped to Lincoln by the 22d. The various state departments will keep the trees in a healthy condition, or try to, and each succeeding chief, of a department la expected to sea to It that the gobd work la Continued. Boimisi Eaters Denial. Rt. Rev. Bishop Bonacum of Lincoln de nies that he has been cited to appear In Roma for a dlsousslon of. the Bonacum-' Murphy trouble, as stated yesterday. And the bishop waxes warm in a discussion of the- matter., Today bis: private- secretary gave out the following statement concern- Ing the dispatches: - 1 am directed by the right rererened. the bishop of Lincoln, to say that the dis patches which appear In some of the Ne braska papers of this day purporting to come from Rome and stating that the bishop of Lincoln has been cited before the sacred congregation of the propaganda in the Murphy case are nothing but fake dispatches and aent out for the purpose of prejudicing the public mind. As far as the Cathollo church Is con cerned. It la all over with the priest Mur phy. His case waa finally determined in Home two yeara ago and ever since that time the bishop of Lincoln has been trying to obtain possession of the church property In Seward, but owing to the dllltory tactics of Murphy and his attorneys the case has been put back from time to time. It comes up for hearing in the district court of Seward county next Monday and I think 1 can promise the readers of The Bee that there will be no further postponement In the matter. ujuukuiu auiub, Secretary. Osverser Nantes stair. The names of the men who will wear the blue and gold and stand beside the gov ernor In his receptions, junkets and du ties military were announced today.

The members of the staff represent va ried Interests, and In It is a sprinkling of military officers that will protect It from the charge that they have not seen service. Colonel Jenkins, the qusrtermsster gen- ersl, saw long service in the National guard, waa captain of Company D when that company wss the crack company of the Second regiment and of the state. He has srrved In his present cspaclty for a num ber of years. Colonel C. J. Bills, Inspector general, waa colonel of the Second Nebraska dur ing the Spanish war and was well known at Chlckamauga, where at one time he commanded a brigade. Colonel Evans, the surgeon general, served In the Pennsylvania National guard during the Pittsburg riots. He Is a suc cessful surgeon at Columbus and Is well known along the Vnlon Pacific road and other parts of the state. Colonel John A. Ehrbardt, judge advocate general, served in the Nineteenth regi ment, U. 8. A., in the war of the rebel lion, and has been a student of army literature ever since. He Is a psst de partment commander and prominent In Masonic circles. Colonel McLaughlin was for many years In the National guard, served In the fa mous First Nebraska In the Philippines and was quartermaster of the regiment. That department always had lots of grief, and the colonel had his share of it. Colonel C. E. Adams, well known In the state, served In the Fifth Wisconsin bat tery In the famous Fourteenth Army corps, has been department commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, was a candi date for congress in the Fifth district sev eral years ago and made large republican gains In a strongly populist district. He will represent the stats on General Cor bin's staff at St. Louis. Colonel Ernest H. Tracy has been promi nent In the Nebraska National Guard for years. He was a major of the Second Ne braska regiment during the Spanish-American war, afterward commissioned as cap tain in one of the provisional regiments of volunteers and on the reorganisation of the Nebraska National Guard was elected lieutenant colonel of the Second regiment. Colonel J. 8. Dew served through the civil war In General Dllworth's Eighty fifth Illinois regiment, took psrt In the Atlanta and other historic campaigns. Colonel Wilson Chase Is a captain In the regular establishment and assigned to the Twenty-first Infantry, has been In the army about fifteen years. Is a graduate of the Field and Staff Military academy of Leavenworth. He participated In the cam paign In Cuba, was serving on General Wyckoff's staff at Santiago when that gal lant officer was killed; he participated In the war In the Philippines and was Instru mental in securing the surrender of General Callls, for which he was highly compli mented In general orders. Colonel Chase Is now detailed at the University of Ne braska as commandant of cadets. The record of Adjutant General Culver, chief of staff In the civil war, the National Guard and the late wars and who Is known In military affairs in this and other coun ties, added to the records above, make a military staff, thinks Governor Mickey, that will compare favorably with any.
