ators, was recommended for passage
by tho senate committee of the whole
on Thursday, by a straight party
vote of 19 to 12, and senate filo No.

ISSUANCE OF STOCK.
6111 by Senator Brown to Regulate the
To prevent tho issuance of watered
stock bv riubllo service corporations
and to provide for the regulation of
tne issuance of stock by the railway
commission Senator Drown of Lan
caster has introduced a bill in tho
senate. The bill provides:
"No corporation heretofore or here
after organized in this stato for the
purpose of opening a street, lnterurban
or other railroad, telephone, gas or
electric lighting or power system, or
for tho purpose of furnishing any
other public service, shall be permit
ted to Issue any stock or bonds until
such corporation shall have submitted
to the stato railway commission a
statement showing to tho satisfaction
of such commission that tho same
is to be issued for money or property
or equal value actually received by
. "Tho state railway commission Is
nereby given full power and authority
and Is required to supervise and
regulate tho issuance of all stock and
bonds by corporations described in
the act. Tho commission must also
approve the same only when It is
shown to the satisfaction of the com
mission that It is for money or prop
erty to tho value of the amount of the
stock and tho bonds.
"No corporation of the class do
scribed shall have power to Issue any.
stocks or bonds except for money or
property equal In value to tho amount
tnereof actually received, and all
waterod stocks or bonds or other fie.
titlous increase of the capital stock or

Tho bill contains an emergency
The salary appropriation bill and
tne appropriation bill for current ex
penses of the stato and stato instl
tutlons have been completed and will
be Introduced In the house bv Renre
sentatlve Clark of Richardson. The
salary bill carries a total of $964,180,
against a total amount anoronr'ated
two years ago of $882,400. In 1907
tho total appropriations for current
expenses was $1,912,780. against a
total of $1,847,80C09. The current
expense bill does not contain nn an
proprlation for the expenses of tho
State Railway commission, which
amount last year was fixed at $20,0C0.
This is probably an oversight, as a
member of the finance committee
said an amount had been agreed upon
though less than two years ago. The
reduction in the current exnense hill
Is due to cuts made in the appro
priations ror stato institutions more
than any other items and tho in
crease in the salary bill is due most
ly to Increase In salary of the bu
preme judges and members of the
Sinking Fund Measure.
Senator Ransom has Introduced a
bill for a new method of securing a
sinking fund. The bill provides that
the state auditor shall certify to the
county clerk of each county the
amount of all municipal bonds of nny
city or village an'' when the Interest
and pilnclpal are duo. It is made the
duty of the county board of equaliza
tion to levy a sufficient amount of tax
against the taxable property of such
city or village to meet the said bonds
and tho interest on them when due.
If the county board refuses or no
gleets to do so it is made the duty
of the county dork to levy tho sarao
agiinst the taxable property.
Temperance forces will Introduce
In the legislature, probably In the
senate, a Joint resolution for an
amendment to the constitution for
state-wide prohibition. The supporters
of county option are not satisfied
with the progress ybelng made on this
matter and have determined to put
the more radical measure before the
Stock Yards Bill.
Tho Stock Yards bill, recommend
ed for passage, fixes tho price for
yarding, loading, unloading, feeding
and watering stock as follows: Cattle
20 cents a head; calves, 8 cents;
horses nnd mules, 5 ctnt3; hor.s, C
cents, and sheep, 4 cents. These
charges are Eald to bo a cut of
about 20 per cent from the charges
now made by tho stock yards com
pany nt South Omaha. Tho bill as
amended In committeo of tho whole
nlso fixes a charge of 35 cents above
the market of the previous day for
hay and grain. It also requires an
annual 'report to be mado by tho
stock yards company to the state
New Road Laws.
The committee of the whole did not
object seriously to nny portion of S.
F. No. 91. Introduced by tho commit
tee on highways and bridges, an act
requiring one-half of tho cost of road
making to be paid by the stato. It
was ordered to third rending.
