TALK OF DUCKING SPEAKERS
Deafening Din Makes Speakers'
Word Inaudible 5,C0O Per
London. Tho suffragettes held
meetings again Sunday in Hyde park
and on Wimbledon common. They
would havo met tho fate of last Sun
day's meetings at the same place,
when It required a strong body of po
lice to escort them to safety, but or
tho fact that large bodies of mounted
and foot policemen were in attend
ance. Five thousand persons assembled In
the park and swarmed about the
speakers' platform, and by a deafen
ing din prevented any word of "Gen
eral" Mrs. Flora Dmmmond's Bpeech
being heard. The pressure of the
surging crowds at length became so
great that reinforcements wero sum
moned. Mrs. Drummond and her col
leagues wero rescued from their per
ilous position with some difficulty.
At Wimbledon similar scenes were
enacted. Scarcely a word uttered by
tho speakers was audible, and they,
too, had to bo protected.
Another meeting at Hempstead
Heath was still more disorderly.
Miss Brackenbury announced her In
tention of speaking for an hour.
This sho succeeded In doing, but her
discourse was Inaudible. Eggs were
thrown at tho speakers and tho meet
ing finally broke up In tho greatest
confusion. Many suggested ducking
tho speakers Ig&,pond.

NO REPEAL FOR ALBERT LAW.
Flanagan Sought to Exempt Cities of
Over 2,000 Population.
Flanagan's bill to repeal the Albert
law In cities of over 2,000 population
met with a violent death in the house.
With sixty-four affirmative votes,
tho negative not being counted, the
house rejected a favorable report or
the cities and towns committee. It
was all over in five minutes, with
Flanagan the only defender of the
A suspicion of minority members of
the committee that Chairman McKIs
slck had read tho bill somewhat has
tily, without allowing time for Its full
significance to entirely penetrate the
commltteemen's'mental processes, fig
ured In piling up the vote. Regan,
a member of the committee, moved to
reject the report, and Reynolds, anoth
er member, seconded the motion.
Seven of the fifteen members, Emel
und, Burket, Blanks, Fuller, Busch,
Regan and Reynolds voted against the
Flanagan said the bill applied only
to cities gifted with the right of mak

and Palmer pointed out that pending

It was a bad day for McKIsslck.
Right on top of this defeat, he asked
the house to turn down a report of the
Insurance committee, -which indefi
nitely postponed McKissick's bill to
put what Is practically the mobile
schednle In effect in fraternal Insur
wce societies. McKIssick said the
committee hadn't even read the bill
through and denied its evil intent, but
the only support for bis motion came
from his colleague. Helllger, and
Yates, Smith, Hoff, Flanagan, Drws
dow, Simon and Anderson of Douglas.
Coupled with a near fist fight be
tween Regan and Anderson of Kear
ney, these Incidents enlivened the
usual routine standing committee re
ports. Anderson vainly tried to way
lay a committee report indefinitely
postponing his bill for compulsory In
spection of private hospitals, convents
and the like. It was admittedly aimed
at Catholic institutions, and when An.
aerson began to read affidavits attack
ing the management of some of these,
Regan objected. Anderson took off
his glasses, but the sergeant-at-arms
got there first and prevented blood
shed. Bills Passed by House.

SENATE HAS TOO
PROTEST OVER LEGISLATURE'S
EXTRAVAGANCE DIES OUT.
HELP COSTS $360 A WEEK
House Has Eighty-Two and Senato
Seventy People Employed As
Lincoln. Early In the session vari
ous republicans, Including the state
auditor and several elective officials,
were making loud protests over the
fact that tho house employe list was
mounting up to a point where the
number of employes exceeded tho
number allowed by law. Now that pro
test has died down Into nothing more
than an unobserved escape of hot air.
Here Ishe reason:
An examination of the records of
the auditor's office shows that the
house Is carrying eighty-two em
ployes. Just the number allowable un
der the state laws. At the same time
the senate, whose committee on ac
counts indicated it would use its own
judgment in the matter, has seventy
employes or twenty-two in excess of
the number allowed under statutory
The difference amounts to about $60
a day or $360 a week, and figured on
the several -weeks that the extra list
has been carried will reach close to
$3,000 over and above the legaf
amount allowed for help for that body
during the session.
Thus the senate wltfc 33 per cent as
large a membership as the house is
using 85 per cent ot the number of
employes used by tho lower body.
When the matter was being thresh
ed over at great length early in the
session the auditor objected to the
heavy list sent up from the house. La
ter on he made a similar kick about
the senate's extra employes. The at
torney general, who was called upon
for an opinion In the matter, decided
that the legislature was Its own judge
In the matter and that If it voted sums
sufficient to pay tho employes It could
have as largG a list as It desired. The
house, however, stood pat and pruned
Its list to conform with the legal-requirements.
This the senate refused
to do, the members of tho expendi
tures committee declaring that it
would "pay as many aB It used and
would use all it wanted to."
Bills Passed by the House.
H. R. 552, by Hostetler: Teach sub
ject of food and diet in eighth, ninth
and tenth grades of public schools.
Passed, 52 to 32, after emergency
clause had lost, 57 to 28.
