Proceedings in the House.
Austin, Tex., March 3L—The house came
to order promptly at 9 o'clock «rith a quor-
Mr. Rogan of Brown moved that the vote
by which tho senate lignite bill was lost be
reconsidered. Rogers of Anderson seconded
the motion, saying that the roll of the house
showed that the vote had not boen correctly
counted, and that in reality the vote on this
bill stood 43 to 43.
Mr. Gough of Collin was opposed to the
bill, which is the bill appropriating $3000
for investigating tho lignite deposits of the
state, and he held that the legislature Is
following the footsteps of tbe national con-
gross in the committee of appropriations,
and t^at to all purposes the state treasury
^ might be declared a jack pot, for which the
state at large might play.
Mr. Gerald contended that a much less
mm would suffice, and that as a matter of
fcict every development In science, from
rat trap inventions to dvnamite cannon,
was fully demonstrated in the Scientific
Journal. He was opposed to wasting
money of the state in uncertain experi*
Mr. Goodman expressed his surprise at
tbe tendency of the legislation this session,
—the disposition to pay for glandered
horses and other wild schemes. It would
be just as advisable to import Arabian
steeds to Improve Texas stock. This lig-
nite might be a big thing for some hujre
monopoly. The bill was reconsidered—ayes
51, noes 33.
The house, however, got under call and
refused to excuse absent members and the
bill was tied up.
House bill amending the law so as to in-
crease county commissioners' pay to $5 a
day for regular terms was engrossed.
Houne bill, a companion one to tho above,
effecting the feos of county judges in small
counties so as to make the fees and salary
of such a judge amount to not less than
$1000 for presiding an<i other official bosU

to the resolution that the investigation

dered by certain newspapers of this state
aud certain railroad attoraeys and lobby*.
i?ts, or other persons, in defeating legists*
tion before the Twenty-first legislature,
looking to the regulation and control of
railroads in this state; and also to inquire
into tho charge that said receivers issued to
members of said Twenty%flrst legislature,
through the agency of a member or mem-
bers thereof, a large number of free passes
over said International and Great Northern
railroad for the purpose as alleged, of in-
fluencing thoir action on the pendiug rail-
Mr. Baker of Tom Green spoke in opposi-
tion to loading tne investigation with other
matters thau thoso contemplated by the
Mr. King said his amendment was not in-
tended to bring in matter which ho consid-
ered foreign to such investigations.
Mr. Browning took about the same view
as Mr. Baker.
The amendment was lost without a singlo
vote favoring it and the resolution from tbe
committee was adopted, embracing amend-
ments to the Gerald resolution providing
that all parties interested shall have wit-
nesses and be heard before the committee
and allowingeach member of thocommlttco

Mr. Lindsay of Smith, one of the com*
mittee, presented the following reasons for
concurring in the above report:
"I concur in the above report not because
I havo any reasons to believe any of tho ru-
mors or Insinuations contuined In the reso>
lution to be true in fact, nor because of any
reason to believe there exists any grounds
or causes for this investigation and expendi-
tuie of public money thoreiu, no evidence
of any Indiscretion upon the part of the
court or anv other person connected with
tho receivership having been brought to tho
knowledge of the committee, but because

thority of tho legislature to appoint a
committee with such power, and now to re-
fuse them this investigation would bo to
besmirch their fair namo by means of this
concurrent resolution introduced into tho
legislature and made a part of the records
thereof. I havo no reason to believo this
legislation is necessary, but as injury will

tlemen, unless such investigation is had

Mr. Lindsay had spread on the journal a
motion to reconsider the voto adopting tho
House bill amending the law defining a
lawful fence after being considerably
amended was recommitted.
House bill, Mr. Fulton's for the protect
tion of gulls, pelicans and other sea birds
will show the manner in which
court officials have fought the fight for their
political chief by assault upon the press.
Jhis is an eminently proper subject of in-
quiry. but the house refused its sanction,
tliongh the lnauiry can hardly be restricted
as msy be demanded by those interested.
King found himself dessrted by the caucus
cohorts and by all the floor managers. The
extended and Important Investigation he
proposed is not wanted. King beat the
democratic nominee in his county, and the
first thing he knows he will have the whole
party and administration down on him. It
is common talk that the wbole business is
aimed at the administration, and tbe mem-
ber who helps it on as was proposed by
Kintr must burn his political bridges be-
The Receivers Hurried to Austin.
Austin, Tex., March SI.—The rising sun

Great Northern receivership in Austin.
They lost no time in getting here, but

This morning Reoeivers Bonner and
Campbell went before the committee hav-
ing under consideratian the Gerald resolu-
tion and addressed them, demanding a
prompt and thorough investigation of all
matters pertaining to the receivership,
from its inception to tho present hour, and
guaranteeing on tho part of the officials all
the assistance that may bo desired in the
way of information and records.
Speaking to a News representative, Mr.
Campbell said: "I have no objection to the
resolution nor to the investigation which it
demands. For my part, I want an investlr
gation, and a prompt, rigid and thorough
one. I am tired ot the insinuations and
rumors which have been floating around
for some months, and I am willing aud
anxious that every act of the receivership
be made public. If anybody has done
wrong I want it known and published. If
no wroug has been done I want the public
to kuow it, I am ready to answer for
myself and want every act to deceive the
severest scrutiny. If I have done wrong I
will take the consequences, otherwise I
desire to get rid of the slanders which have
been floating around."
Receivers Bonner and Campbell returned
to Tyler to-night.

Mr. Oerald moved to reconsider tho vote
by which his resolution was adopted and to
lay that motion on the table.
Mr. Lindsay demanded a division of the
question and tho motion to table the motion

Mr. Lindsay said he was not sure but
what the amendment of Mr. King should
have been adopted and for that reason it
might be well to reconsider.
The hoase however refused to reconsider.

Mr. Owsley had spread on the journal s

Mills' Great Speech.
AUSTIN, Tex., March 3L—Colonel Mills
made his great speech to-night in Repre-
sentative hall, which was crowded with
people, probably 2000 being seated. He was
received with most hearty demonstrations,
and created at times tumultuous enthu<«
slasm. No speaker here ever more com>
pietely engrossed the attention of so largo
an assemblage through nearly a two-hours'
speech. It was a purely democratic speech.
The steering committees and subtreasury
advocates were scorched and dbtlded as
friends of the republican party. Tariff
reform was discussed briefly but so clearly
that even members of the legislature thor-
oughly comprehended his views. Silver
coinage, while advocated, was not to be
allowed to confuse and divide the dem-
ocracy. He evidently has a very strong
leaning to Cleveland. He advocated the
election of United States senators and
federal judges and generally the turning
over of government to the electors.

Cotulla, Tex., March 31.—Captain J. A.
Brooks of tho state ranger force has been
slowly but surely weaving the web around
a gang of suspected cattle thieves and Satur-
day all was ready to begin making arrests.
Two wore taken in Saturday on a charge of
theft of cattle from a Webb county ranch.
Their names ure John Connor and Sam An-
derson. They were taken before Justice
Foster of Laredo for a preliminary exam**
ination. On the testimony the men were
sent to jail in default of bond. As soon as
Captain Brooks disposed of these two men
he came up on the evening train and ar«
rested Jim Pierce and Wright and Bill
Anderson on a charge of cattle stealing,
and they are now in Jail at this place await-
ing the arrival of the officers from Webb
county, who have boon notified and will be
up on the morning train after the prisoners.
All the cases so far as has been made
public go to Webb county. These arrests
are looked upon as but the entering wedge
that unfolds seyora! steals on a largo scale,
and will expose a gang that has been oper-
ating in this soctlon of Texas for years.
Captain Brooks and his men are doing
some good work, and the ranchmen of the

Interest In the investigation.
Austin, Tex., March 81. — There are
many big little politicians involved
in tho proposed investigation of
the district court and railroad re-
ceivership case in which Jay Gould
opened up proceedings, inveigled the attor-
ney general into taking a hand, and, after
his own purposes had been subseryed,
dropped the state's law chief in the tureen.
There should not, however, be any political
fight In the case. Of course politicians are
deeply kiu-reoted, but the inquiry should
route only to politics in so far as they
connect state officers, the press and mem-
bers of the legislature with court action.

amendment, to open up matters which are
clearly proper for investigation, aud i

able excitement was oroated here last night
and this morning over the action of a num-
ber of railroad employes of the Santa Fe in

been here a few days, to leave the town.
The men aooused promised to leave last
nitfht, but failed to do so, and this morning
the mayor was called upon to furnish pro-
tection for the men. Two of tbe supposed
'spotters" claim they are but private
watchmen and havo been sent here by the
company to look after certain property of
tho company. The local employes claim to
know they are "spotters" and are the same
men who were run out of Temple a short
time ago upon the same charge. One of
them was severoly whipped by a number of
masked men while there. The mayoroffered
the desired protection, but the accused de»
