Springfield, Ills., Jan. 15.—Yesterday the state legislature had been in extra session for thirty-nine days, and has passed just one important bill, the apportionment measure. The revenue situation is as follows: After several •weeks of informal discussion by the senate body as a whole and of labor by a sub-committee, to which the work of preparing the text was intrusted, a bill was perfected this week and, having now been introduced, will come up for formal consideration In the senate next Tuesday. This perfected senate bill was introduced ia the lower body by Representative Anderson. The house then settled down in committee of the whole to decide, not on the actual Is.ngruagc of the bill, but on the various ffiatures to be incorporated in it. A selection having been made of various provisions of the Anderson bill and o:f the Compton bill, and votes having b*en taken on the propositions on which the greatest differences of opinion ex- isited, the house in turn intrusted to a sub-committee the work of embodying in language what the house desires in the way of a revenue bill. This subcommittee has now practically completed its labors. Chairman Selby and Judge Sherman will, during the Sunday recess, closely scrutinize the bill to make sure that it does not run up against any constitutional limitations, and the measure will be introduced in the house on next Tuesday. No business was transacted in either house yesterday. ' LYNCHING DOESN'T NEED A "PLOT." Not In Missouri, Anyway—Bat » Mob I« Baffled All Right, Butte, Mont.. Jan. 15. — Joseph C. Johnson, the colored man for whom the Missouri authorities have been makini; such a hard flght, will not go back to that state to answer the charge of abducting- a white girl named Katie Nei!!, from Sweet Springs, near Kansas City. The supreme court granted him a hearing on a habeas corpus and sent the case before Judge Brantley, of. Deer Lodge county, who yesterday decided that the requisition papers were defective and ordered Johnson's release. The negroes made a hard fight to keep Johnson here, as they claimed to have had knowledge of a plot to lynch him on his arrival in Missouri. FOUR OF THE FIVE FOUND ALIVE.

DELAY 13 SEOTJ1ED BY A1LE3T, Who Wants the Allegations Ag-alnst the Nominee's Attainments as a cTurist Investigated—Hoar and White Denounce the American ProtecUves for Their Opposition to tlieCalifomian—President Sends Conjrrciis Canada's Sealing BILL Washington, Jan. 15.—Almost the entire four hours of the executive session of the senate yesterday were devoted to tha indirect consideration of the nomination of Jeesph McKenna, now attorney general, to be associate justice of the supreme court. The discussion was the result of an effort on the part of Alen of Nebraska (Populist) to secure a ATTORNEY GENERAL M' postponement for two weeks. In the end a compromise was reached deterring consideration until a week from yesterday on the condition that the Nebraska senator should agree to allow a vote to be taken on that dayv The Hawaiian treaty was not touched upon during the session. The debate upon McKenna's nomination was precipitated by Hoar, chairman of the committee on judiciary, who called up the nomination In accordance with his notice of Thursday and asked for immediate action. In doing this Hoar spoke briefly of the opposition to McKenna, saying that the judiciary committee had investigated most of the charges made and had reached the conclusion that they were without foundation. "Kales Out A. P. A. Objections. He said that the gr.ga.ter number of charges »had been made for the members of the American Protective Association, and as they had been founded solely upon the fact that McKenna was a Roman Catholic in religion they had not been deemed worthy of serious consideration. Hoar dwelt at some length upon this point, excofiating any men who wonld attempt to inject a question of religion into a. controversy over a man's fitness for office. He said that such an effort was entire un-American and unpatriotic, and should not tor a moment receive the consideration f fair-minded men. White of California also spoke of the effort of the A. P. A. to interfere with the course of the senate in giving prop- ?r attention to a,question the determination of which should depend upon considerations of fitness and justice as between man and-, man rather than upon an appeal to bigotry, prejudice and a. raise claim to patriotism." IVli 1 to Attacks the Organization. He spoke of the A, P. A. as fools who could not be properly characterized in the senate. He had no patience, he said, with men who held the opinion that Roman Catholics must necessarily consult the pope or some other high functionary of the Jlloman Catholic :hurch in every important transaction of their lives, and added that he was •convinced that the American senate would not be influenced for a moment by such representations as an order of the character of . the A. P. A. would nke. McKenna's confirmation should depend entirely upon different considerations. As for himself, while he did .lot contend that McKenna was a giant in his legal attainments, still he be- ved him to be an honorable man, a i-ompetent lawyer and a just Jurist, and le should support his confirmation. Allen Presents His Objections. It was here that Allen interposed an Ejection to immediate action. He •rilled attention to the importance of Lhe office to which McKeana had been named, saying it was a place which he tvould occupy probably during the remainder of his life. He agreed with Hoar and White as to the A. P. A., but there were still other charges which were to his mind more serious, and to prove that such was the case he rea4 at length from letters and newspapers attacking- MeKenna's record as an attorney and jurist on the ground of want of legal attairiments. The greater part of Alien's speech was devoted to reading these documents. He called especial attention to an attack made by the bar of the Pacific coast, which he said was deserving- of more scrutiny than had been given it. SEAL AWABD SENT TO COXGKESS. Total Bill to Par Is $473,131.26 and the Payment Is Urgent. Washington, Jan, 15.—The president yesterday submitted to congress the awards and report of the commision ippointed under the, terms of the treaty of 1SS6 to adjust the claims of British subjects for losses sustained through the seizure of their sealing vessels in Bearing sea. In his letter of trans- niittal the president says: "The report of the secretary of state presents a clear epitome of the, award, and. renders unnecessary any extended observations on my part further th;m to say that I cordially coincide with the recommendation and that our treaty obligations demand prompt and favorable action by congress, which I urgently hope may be taken, to the end that these long pending questions'may be finally and satisfactorily terminated. The total amount necessary to satisfy the award of the commissioners is $473,- 351.2S, which I recommend be ippro- priated." Secretary Sherman's report sets out the appointment of the commissioners to adjust the claims and submits a. list of the awards made showing in detail the amount allowed on account of each of twenty-one vessels. There were also allowed fourteen personal claims. The principal of the claims for vessels allowed amounts to $264,188.91, and interest on this sum is allowed to the amount of $149,790.36, making the total allowed $413,979,27. The personal claims with interest swell this total to $463,454.27. Then the correspondence shows that a further allowance was made on account of the Black Diamond and on the claim of James Gaudia, mate of the Ada. two claims which had been originally thrown out by the commissioners on the ground of lack of jurisdiction, but which were afterwards admitted to consideration on the joint application of Secretary Olney and Sir Julian Pauncefote. The admission of these two claims raised the total of the claims and interest allowed to 'the sum mentioned by the president, namly $473,151.26. Secretary Sherman makes the point in his letter that the treaty under which the awards were made requires that the appropriation shall be made to pay them within six monnhs after the ascertainment of their amount, MRS. SI'KINLEY DINES OUT. Sue «nd the President tlie Guest of the Vice President i»nd Wife. Washington, Jan. 15.—The vice president and Mrs. Hobart entertained the president and Mrs. McKinley last evening at a beautifully appointed dinner of twenty covers.

Mrs. Hobart's gown was of pearl gray brocade, trirr.mad with rare old laces with which she wore ornaments of pearls and diamonds. This was Mrs. McKinley's first appearance as a dinner guest in Washington since the inauguration, and was consequently awaited with great interest.

House Staves Ofl'a Cuban Talk. Washington, Jan. 15.—It was the Intention of the house managers to proceed with the diplomatic and consular appropriation bill yesterday, but owing to the excited condition of affairs In this country over the Havana ementes and the wildly exaggerated reports afloat they decided to avoid the possibility of opening up a Cuban debate by relinquishing tie day to the committee on claims in charge of bills on the private calendar. Before this order was entered upon the 1 ' agricultural bill was passed. Mostv.iof the day was consumed in a filibuster against a bill to pay the publishing house of the Methodist Episcopal church south, at Nashville, Tenn., $288,000 for the seizure and use of the property of tha.t corporation during the war. The opposition consumed the time until 5 o'clock, when the house adjourned. Framing an Anti-Scalplnc Bill. Washington, Jan. 15.—The house committee on interstate and foreign commerce had the anti-scalping bill under discussion yesterday. Two important amendments were adopted. One Imposes a penalty on x-aiiroads refusing'to redeem utilised portions of tickets. This provision is lacking in the original bBl, and the railroad interests that hay* teen represented fav«r it as an earnest of good faith. An amendment also was adopted providing that passengers applying- for redemption of tickets should not be given the benefit of the through tariff but of only the regular rates to the point where the journey ceased. What Was Done in the 5!enat«.
