The aenator aald 1.1 amendment waa Intended to test the sincerity - cerity of senators who expressed the patriotic deaire to aid the treasury by raising more revenue. Mr. Sherman oppoJcd the amend. : nnt as a sidlIful means to defeat the chcese bill. Ills motion to table the Dubols amendment - ment was detested-yeas , 25 ; nays , 30. On ' \ the question of adcptIng the amendment , the debate became general , Senators Mills and Gray supporting and Nelson0 Aldrich and 'IIas opposing it. The bill and the pending beer amendment were displaced at 2 oclock by the bond biii which was advocated by Mr. Pritchard. republican of North Carolina , and opposed by Mr. Lindsay , ileinocrat of Kentucky. A lull wn passed to pension at $75 a month the widow of General George Spencer , at onetime United States senator from Alabama. Mr. Thnrton , in 'view of his departtwe , owing to sickness lb his family , defined his posItion on a number of important pending sneacures , viz : Favorable to the election of senators by the People. to the bill amending the law for punlahment for contempt of A court , to the filled cheese bill , and opposed to the bill prohibiting the issue of bonds. ' . As to the last measure Mr. Thuraton was not opposed to the principle of the bill , which he might approve at another time , but he felt it was too late In the session to withhold from the administration the meana of avoiding a monetary crisIs. DUIJOIS' TAX Of 13EER. As soon as the filled cheeie bill was taken VP , Mr. Dubois , republican of Idaho , offered an amendment to the chece bill placing an additional tax of 75 cents per barrel on beer , ortor and ale. In suiporting the amend- znent , Mr. Dubois said it offered an opportunity - tunity to Mr. Sherman to execute the atrlotio purposes he bad recently expressed without resorting to the Dingley tariff bill , an "unjust , unsatisfactory , sectional bill . which cannot pass the senate. " That bill .was a "trap , tranaparent and unfair. " This beer amendment would yield $2OOO.OOO additional - ditional revenue , Mr. Dubois said. Senators could accept this or else "quit posing before the country as the only patriots. " Mr. Sherman , republican of Ohio , replied briefly , urging that this was a move to cripple the cheexe bill , which was in no aense a general revenue bill. Thirty millions of revenue already was raised from "that . .very Useful and comfortable drink , " and ho ( Sherman ) thought the consumers of beer paid about enough. lie moved to table the beer amendment. which motion was defeated -yea , 25 : nays , 30 , as follows : Ycao-Ropublicans tdrtch % ; Galhinger PItt , Allison , hawley Quay. ] aker , atltc1ief , Hewehl. 3turrowu.

' I The refusal to table created something of a stir through the senate. ir. Vilas opposed the amendment , saying the tax on beer fell on the consumer and the ' vage.earnlng workers. Mr. Dubois said cenators declaimed for snore revenue and yet opposed a move to raise rov.nue. lie denied that tb'e would place a great burden on the consumer of beer. Doer wca cheap , two glasses for 5 cents. and the price would not rse. Mr. Mills , democrat of Texas , supported the ' 4 1 beer amendment and pointed out that the I OpfOsltiOn came from senators who supported ' ' ( a greater tax on choose , an article of food \ used by the poor. ' Mr. Aldrich , republican of Rhode Island , expresord gratification that the democratic ' party had , by the vote just given , placed itself - self on record In favor of a high beer tax. It had been generally suppo.sed that the brewers of the country supported the democratic - cratic party , not by their votes , but in amore substantial way , and in return for this belp the party offered a heavy beer tax. Me. Nelson , republican of Minnt'aota , deprecated - rocated the move to inject the tariff or all. ver questions Into this niertoriua bill against Zrauduien cheese. Mr. Gray , democrat of Delaware , ad ! the cheese bill was confessedly not to raise revenue ; that the beer amendment was most opportune to make the bill what it purported to be-a revenue meaure. At 1 o'clock the cieeso bill. with the beer amendment pending , was laid aeido , Mr. Sherman announcng that ho would call it up as soon as the bond bill was dlspeeod of. Mr. Pritchard , repubflcan of North Caro- lina. epoke In opposition to the Issue of bonds in time of peace. Mr. Lindsay. democrat of Kentucky , op- ioeed the bond bill. While he did not regard it as an act at repudiation , yet he Ibelloved It would head to the auspenalon of aped'e ' payments within elxty days from the time I of it adoption. The bond bill was then laid aside , ' Mr. Stewart , populist of Nevada , asked ' that the financial report of Secretary Car. hale in 1878 be prnted as a document , but Nesars. Lindsay , AldrIch and Platt objected ' to it. as antiquated. The final conference re- ' POrL on the executive , legislative and judi- cml bill was agreed to. A. partial conference report upon the sundry - dry civil bill was agreed to , the remaining Items , Including public buildings. being sent back to the conference.

AMUSEMENTS. J ececocccowoooocccocc John Drew's stage career , which now dates back twenty yeare , ha been almost a continuous - tinuous series of successes. His two latest successes , "Christopher , Jr. . " and "The Squire of Dames , " each of which will have been presented for fifteen weeks in New York this season , are among lila most congenial - genial roles. Drew Is perhaps the most IOPUlar actor In New York at the present time. While other attractions may be play. lag to small houses , Mr. Drew's theaters are filled with Now York society people.

DO.1IVER OF IOWA TALKS ABOUT BOlES ScolTs at the Senntc and this S'rcMldent nsat Thou Irlfts Into h'olltiii Until Protests Are Ilniseil Agninst lhliia , WASHINGTON , May 2G.-The house today , by a vote of 165 to 69. passed the bill for the repeal of section 61 of the present tariff law , provIding for a rebate on alcohol used in the arts or medicinal compounds. An amend- meat was attached to the bill providing for a joint commission to consist ot , three members from each house to examine and report on all questions relating to free alcohol at the next session , The opposition to the mneas- nra came almost entirely from eastern and New England states. An analysis of the vote shows that. fifty-six democrats , 104 republicans - publicans and five popullats voted for the bill , had sixty republicans and nine democrats against the bill. The senate amendments to the genea1 deficiency ( except the French spohiation claims and claims under the 130w- man acti , werq disagreed to , and the bill sent to conference. Mr. Dolliver , republican of Iowa , a member of the ways and means comrmlttee , spoke in favor of the alcohol bill. lie ridiculed the idea of attempting republican - lican legislation against the opposition of the "Inert , populistic mass in the senate" and the "inert , free trade mass in the white house. " Mr. Dolliver then drifted into politics , and paid his respects to ox-Governor Horace Boles of Iowa , who , he raid , looking In vain through the dust and cobwebs of a country law office for a republican nomhna. tion , joined the anti-prohibition element in Iowa and carrie'I the democratic party to victory. With cutting satire lie described Mr. l3oks a' tiring of the contemplation of the legal 'status of the town pump , and turn- log his attention to broader fields. lie told of a dinner at tue New York Reform club in 1891 , at which Cleveland , Carlisle and Boles were present , and at which Boles dc- livered a high tribute to the prosperity of the country under tIme McKinley law. He eulogized the splendid leadership of Reed , McKinley , l3iaine and Harrison , undr which the McKinley law had been enacted , and described the misrepresentation of that law which had overthrown the splendid republican phalanx. and bad given congroes over to the 'widest ! assortment of political freaks that ever added to the gayety of nations. " lie went on to describe how Mr. Boles bad once again "shifted his horizon , " and now sought , 'with some local success. " to restore the irosperity of a republican administration , by advocating the "unlimited manufacture of 50-cent dollars. " The republican side displayed a good deal of indecision during the delivery of Mr. fbI. liver's remarks , but Mr. McMiiiin , democrat of Tennessee , angrily protested against consuming - suming the brief time for debate with apolitical harangue and Mr. Knox , republIcan of Massachusetts. joined in the protest. Mr. I3artlett , democrat of New York , and Mr. Colson of Kentucky , opposed and Mr. McMiiiin advocated the alcohol bill. The tat. ter denied that the proposed legislation was in the interest of the whisky trust. Mr. Dingiey , chairman of the ways and means committee , closed the debate in favor of the measure. There were , be said , three facta to be borne in mind : First , this was not a tariff bill , It was simply an internal revenue bill ; second , with claims against the government piling up , good administration demanded its repeal , arid third , the present provision was absolutely unworkable. fly 112 to S the house accepted the corn- promise amendment agreed on by friends and opponents of the bill , providing for the appointment of a eommltteo to examine all questions relating to free alcohol and report - port to congress next December and , as amended , the alcohol bill was . passed , 165 to 69. - - Another partial report on thq Indian appropriation bill , which left only the ques- Uon of the sectaria0 schools and the old settlers claims still in dispute , was adopted. At 5:45 : p. m. the house adjourned. WEYLEII MAKES ONE CONCuSSION , . ' &siierienn Ovrners.ofLenf Tobnoon in Cuba tViII lIe Allowed to Eaport It.

Con the Seen DniI Now Out Ofl tlit' Io.he Strtet Course , The atpirant3 for Decoration day road race honors can now be seen every day in training on the Dodge street course. Some of them tAke their pra.tico spins in the morning - ing and others in the afternoon and even- lng. The course is an ideal one for a road race. The surface of the macadam is smooth , contains but one turn and that not a dangerous one , and with the exception of one railroad track there is nothing which could be culled an obstruction. This railroad - road crossing is planked in such a manner as to render it as little inconvenient as possible. There is suflicient of down hill and level road to afford opportunity to display - play the speed of the riders and hills enough to climb to test their wind and endurance. In a jaunt over the course yesterday many of the riders were found barth at their training - ing and speed enough was sown to demon- strata that the winner will hare ample reason to congratulate himself on his sue- cess. In cycling circle , it is rumored there are some hitherto unknown men who are very likely to give the old-timers the. hot end of a very hot argument. There are rumors of fast time made over the course by several - eral of the candidates , but these , like trial heats of race horseS can always be taken with a grain of alfowance It is pretty safe to Sn ) ' , however , that the scratch men will not hay back this year waiting for the other fellow to set pa l and let a handicap man win time prize."without a struggle. They have learned alesson and all who ax- pect to be put on.scxatch yow they will ride it out from the crack of the pistol and if a handicap man 'wjns time prize this year he will have to 'dde hard and be a whole lot bettor than.tbo handicappers gave him credit for.

Several indignation meetings have been held , and the end is not yet , It Is asserted that the attitude of tIme faculty originates in the fact that on Saturday night last there was a somewhat riotous d'poitiOn imtanl- fasted among some of the companies conipet- lug for the prizes offered for superior drilling - ing , which disturbance led to the arrest of 000 of ( 'he c'Idets. The ground selected for the encampment Is at Nebraska City , and the faculty Is fearful of similar exploits among ( lie young men It they are allowed to go into camp near that city. Some of ( ho boys declare they will go into camp anyway. The Pershing Rifles have extended a cordial Invitation - tation to the cadets to participate , and it Is freely claimed that the invitation will be accepted. Governor Holcomb today sent commissions to Miiton 13. Deck of Bennett , recently ap- ponted ! surgeon of the Firat regrnent ! , Nc- braska National Guards , and to MaurIce A. heaver , appointed surgeon of the Sccond regiment. Both have the rank of captain. Adjutant General flarry has aent"-to each company in the guards 200 rounds of bionIc cartridges to be used on Decoration day. For several weeks Lincoln people have been annoyed by potty thieving , Including chickens , clothing and small articles left lying around the house. Today the police raidct 'a camp of tramps near Twenty- seventh and U streets , capturing four and chasing another out of sight. Officer flout- zahn fired several shots at hi retceatlng form , but so far as learned none of thorn took effect , The four landed at ( be station are a tough looking lot. One of them , Delaney - laney , alias McVoy , alias Smith , is supposed - posed to be the man who lately broke into the residence of H. M. Scott. The city council has given notice that after July 1 no more bilis will be paid for the maintenance of the Lincoln police force , It is expected that property owners along the beats of the patrol will pay all expenses - penses in ( ho future. Under instructions of the court the hood perjury case this afternoon passed into history , the jury bringing in a verdict of acquittal. The defense hind entered a tie. murrer to the evidence against hood and Judge Hall sustained it and ordered the jury to acquit. The jury in the case brought by Oliver & Lansing against It. H. Moore to recover on a $500 subscription to the building Cf the Lansing theater , today returned a ver- duct in favor of the plaintiffs for $500 and Interest from 1891 , the full amount claimed. Brad D. Slaughter , receiver of the Lin- coIn street railway , has asked the district court to remove the case recently brought by the city to foreclose on the road for delinquent taxes to the federal court. He says that is the proper tribunal to fix the priority of liens. Omaha people in Lincoln : At the Lindell- E. A. W. Sneli , D. F. hiurd , 'V. B. John- son. At the Capital-J. M. Casey.
