Our Lincoln Letter
lines it may bo said that tlio Slocumb
law as it now stands has not been
changed in any respect, Strong cfTorlB
were tnado by the brewery interests to
amend this law, and thereby open up
the gates for a more liberal construc
tion, but these efforts were nipped in
the bud. Every measure that had that
purpose in view has met with instant
death. It lias been the sen6o of tills
legislature that the liquor question was
not an issue in the campaign last fall
except locally, and that there was no
mandate from the people to change
existing laws and in consequence no
radical laws upon this question have
been placed upon the statuto books.
It must not be forgotten that the new
oil law is of vast importance to the
people of this state- It reduces the
rate on Kansas oil and it will now be
possible to get this oil here for fuel
purposes. It changes the test so that
the quality of the oil may be tested as
well as its inflammability. It is con
ceded by every one who has investi
gated this matter that the new law will
bo the means of saving a lnrgc sum to
the people of the state. Gasoline is
two and three cents per gallon cheaper
than it was-one week ago.
Governor Shallcnbcrger has signed a
bill providing that hereafter it will be

Lincoln Ncbr., April 6. (Special
CorrcspondenceONow that tho legis
turo has adjourned it might be well to
inquire- whether or not sonlo of the
strictures sought to bo placed -upon it
by republican newspapers is justified.
We vontuie the statement without fear
of successful contradiction that no leg
islature that has over met in Nebraska
has placed so many meritorious and
wiso laws upon the statute books, and
that no legislature has passed measures
that bo little fault can be found with
It has absolutely kept the faith, and
has enacted into law the pledges made
tqho people at tho election last fall.
TflVtwo great things demanded were
thepassage of a bank guarantee law
and restoration of tho precinct asses
sors. While theso two things have
been done, many other remedial meas
ures havo been passed. The bank
guaranty law is conceded by bankers
to bo tho best that can bo framed.
President Black, who for some time
was tho president pf tile bankers' asso
ciation in this stato, mada this state
ment to the committee before which ho
appeared at Lincoln. The objections
that havo been made are inspired by
interests that arc controlled by selfish
reasons, and by men who do not con
cede that other men arc entitled to the
same opportunities as themselves. The
precinct assessors will have chargo of
the assessment schedules hereafter and
will bo elected by the people.
In addition to this the right of tho
stato board of equalization to raise the
totals of tho county assessments and
valuation has been taken away. This
has been a glariug evil and one of
which the people bitterly complained.
The primary law has been changed
so that platforms will bo written here
after before tho primary election.
The clerk of the supreme court has
been placed upon a salary basis and it
is conceded that the state will be richer
-each year by more than $10,000. A tax
has been placed upon corporations pro
viding for tho payment of fees for fil
ing articles of incorporations that will
net the state treasury $300,000.
The special bill of Governor Shallen
berger has been passed which provides
that no stocks or bonds can be issued
by corporations without first obtaining
tho consent of the state railway com
mission, thus protecting tho investor,
and at the same time preventing tho
loadiug up of a corporation with water
ed stock thus necessitating the charging
of exorbitant rates to pay tho interest.
Tho physical valuation of railroads
has been provided for, making it possi
ble to get at the real value of theso
properties, Hereafter it will not be
necessary to take tho word of the com
pany as to the value of its property.
This will be done by the state itself,
and will forever settle tho rate ques
tion; as rates will be based upon tho
value of the property and justice done
A new oil law by which Kansas oil
may bo shipped here for fuel, and other
provisions that will save the people of
this state $250,000 in the next year.
The Ollis warehouse law will bo in
force by which cereals can bo stored,
certificates issued against it and these
made negotiable, thus preventing the
farmer from being compelled to sell
his grain at any price that is offered.
The appropriations have been kept
within the revenues of the state treas
No legislature that has ever met in
Nebraska has given as much attention
to educational matters as has this one.
Every bill that has had for its object
the promotion of tho educational in
terests of tho state has received earnest
attention and enthusiastic support.
The members of this body have taken
the position that there is not a tax
payer iu the state who would seriously
object to appropriating money for the
benefit of our educational interest.
One of the best measures passed by
tliis legislature from the standpoint of
right and justice is the bill preventing
the taking of soldiers' pensions at the
different soldiers' homes. It has been
the practice of the last administration
to take these pensions, or a certain per
cent of them, and utilize the funds in
running the home. The soldiers them-

J. E. Wilson, of Belvidere, Nobr.,
breeder of pure bred short horns and
owner of ono of the finest herds in the
state, arrived in Alliance Monday morn
ing. Last' spring ho purchased a quarter
section of land west of town which ho
had fanned. Ho is hero now to com
plete arrangements to havo his son
take charge of the farm this year. The
son is a graduate of the stato school of
agriculture and of course will be great
ly interested in tho scientific farming
which is being done here. Mr. Wilson
himself is prominently connected with
tho various agricultural societies of the
state and is a firm believer of the de
velopment of northwest Nebraska.
While here last summer he joined the

shows his interest and confidence in
the city by renewing his membership.

Groat crowds, too, waited for his ap
penranco on tho streets, and when he
rodo along In an nutomobilo ho was
greeted with enthusiasm that aston
ished him. Ho met various official
delegations at tho Hotel Excelsior,
where apartments hnd been reserved
for him, scores of prominent Amer

countries, aud to them all ho ex
pressed his warmest thanks for tho
wclcomo which ho had received. He
visited tho duko and duchess of
Aosta at Capodimonto and Inter dined
in private at the hotel, going on board

A letter was received by Mr. Roose

that ho had gained tho impression
that tho ntlcan would have great
pleasure in receiving Mr, Roosevelt,
because of tho admiration and high
esteem In which he was hold there.
Later Mr. RooBevelt told tho American
ambassador that he Bhould assuredly
go to tho Vatican to soo the pope it

Three hours elapsed between the ar
rival of tho Hamburg and the landing
of the cx-presldent, ns Mr. Roosevelt
wished' pernonally to superintend tho

had a very largo quantity. Meanwhile
he was the object of a continual ova
