THE IRRIGATION BILL.
It Meets With a Cold Receiption
in the Senate.
A PROTEST PRESENTED.
Senator Darner's Irrigation Bill Is
Bitterly Opposed by Hl9 Inde
pendent Brethren - Other
Ik'KUtATIOX DISC I SSKK.
Darner's irrigation bill, senate
lile No. HI, was the last Friday's
special order for '2 o'clock and when
the time arrived the introducer of
the hill presented petitions lioth in
favor and against it. Many piti
toners asked its passage as a meas
ure calticulated to he of great bene,
tit to the people. 'Hie following,
however, expressed the opinion of a
great number to the contrary:
First -That the Huid hill in its vnriinis
provisions! too cotuptic ateeil uiul un
wieldy. Second Tluit hy reason of the numerous
ofllccrs created uiul made necessiiry hy
tlio siime, it Is necessarily expensive.
Third That the payment of the salar
ies of the lare nutiiher of saidj'fimi'tiiuis
will hecoine a harden alike on the liti.ens
who receives a henetit from the contem
plated enterprises und those who cannot
possible decieve any advantage there
from. Section ,'t7, p. 17.
Fourth That the plan of taxation pro
posed to he placed on canals which Khali
receive a revenue jfor rental is iinprac
ticte anil unjust.
Fifth Thut the proposed plan forvotinu
bonds for the construction and mainten
ance of canals would lie burdensome and
tin j list and against the best interests of
irrigation throimhout the state,
Sixth-That the present law relative to
irrigation gives every beueiit now needed
and protects every Interest of importance
contemplated in the proposed law.
When Darner called for proced
ure under the special order in com
mittee of the whole TelTt raised the
point of order that the committee
of the whole when last in session
arose with the general appropria
tion bill under consideration as a
special order, therefore the appro
priation bill held a prior claim as
the special order.
Lieutenant Governor Majors sus
tained the point of order, but with
the understanding that neither bill
should lose place, the irrigation
bill was taken up section by section
with Dale in the chair. The (iicstin
seems to have been raised by TelTt
in order to prevent another wran
gle over the status of the general
appropriation bill and to fully de
cide its position on a general lile.
The decision means that the appro
priation bill will come up when the
committee of the whole sits again.
Senate tile No. 11) criming up fur
consideration Pope made the first
attack by moving to strike out sec
tion 1, which provides for the ap
pointment of a state hydratilia en.
gineer at a salary of L',00I) per year
giving as his reasons an argument
at length the unconstitutionality of
the creation of the state office, or a
court with the engineer as its su
preme judge. Tope, however, with
drew his motion in order to allow
the reading of the bill by sections.
The bill received its next hard
blow from its own side ol the
house in a motion from Stewart to
amend by reJucingthe engineer's
salary to Jl,."iiK). The amendment
was adopted. Stewart declared the
hill expensive and of no benelit to
the peeple interested.
Then TelTt jumped onto the meas
ure, asked why a board should be
created at a great expense and also
the saddling t.f bonds on the pen
pie. Stewart continued to nip olf ex
pense accounts until North declar
ed the chief engineer would not

Darner came to the defense of
his bill and repeatedly asserted
that members failed to comprehend
the measure. If they could only
hear, he said, the "prayers of dear
people whom he had the honor of
representing," they would at least
treat the bill fairly and without
Tefft read it letter from it news
paper man of Gering showing that
the sections desiring irrigation
were now principally supplied and
people of that district were almost
unanimously opposing the bill.
North wanted to know if the
writer had any d itches.
Darner naid the man's attitude
would bringdown on his head the
future curses of his own people.
Continuing he read a letter ex
pining that corpoations secured the
remonstrance given above and re
porting that some names were
forged. He charged an effort on
the part of persons to get control
of the head waters. Figures were
given showing that irrigation un
der the present law and under his
bill meant a difference- of $!7,(KX) in
thirty years in cost of irrigating
The discussion narrowed down
between Stewart and Darner, Stew
art continuing that the people
could build ditches under the
present law. It did not put any
more water in western Nebraska
but did hamper with expensive machinery.
TelTt saiil the remonstrance was
the result of a public meeting, clos
ing a spirited talk by declaring
there were only two subjects in the
bill one to give ollice and the
other to bond the people.
The bill was opposed hy I'ope,
Moore, TelTt and Stewart, while
Darner. North, Lobeck, and Harris,
supported it, but without action the
committee arose and asked leave to
It is a common remark that very
little interest attaches to the legis
lature. Ivveu with a maximum rate
bill for daily fare the proceedings
appear to be devoid of the deep in
interest displayed at former ses
sions, It will be remembered that the
( maha Canal company has a bill
in the senate which brings their
proposed works under the irriga
tion law and subject to such con
trol. The committee report inde
finitely postponing Pope's bill
regulating telephone charges.
The Newberry maximum rate bill
came up for discussion in commit
tee of the whole. Having been cor
rected and some of the blunders
smoothed over it came from the
committee without even a trace of
governor's voets hanging about it.
Republicans olfered a substitute in
the form of a commodity bill mak
ing a twenty per cent reduction on
rates on live stock, grain, coal, lime
lumber, cement, flour, potatoes,
sand, stone ami brick, but it was
rejected for the vetoed Newberry
bill, which was recommended for
passage by a vote of 51 to 4X. The
close shave for the Newberry bill is
believed to mean, taken into con
sideration with the rejection of the
commodity bill' that no maximum
rate bill can be passed this session.
It is reported that the senate will
not pass the Newberry bill und
that independents will defeat any
other simply to gain a new stock of

of the special committee appointed
to investigate the amount and con

in the defunct Capital National
bank. The report was not complete
and the committee asked for further
time. The report is as follows:
"Your special committee appoint
