Senate Hurkctt Introduced In the Sen ate a similar hill, which met with like result. The Senate committee on postoiiicc and post roads formulated a hill and through tho work and Influ ence of Senator Millard Plattsmouth. with other titles In this state, was fa vored with 7,:i0o for a building site. Thlsblll makes appropriations of num erous and varied amounts, for many cities, In a great number of states.and of courso was a popular measure. It was called thcOmnlbus hill, and passed both houses with votes from all over the F nlted States. Pollard's helii was not needed -Indeed he could not have prevented Its passage had he tried. And this is the truth about the build ing site appropriation of 7,.riOO. Pol lard did not do anything when the op portunity presented itself or ho would have procured an amendment, when thlsblll was being considered In the house, raising tho amount from $7,.r00 to 7',(X or $100,000 for both a site and building. Pollard must think his chances are slim when he tries to fool the voters by representing that he has done so much fur us-more than his duty, and accomplished more than his predecessors. We owe him nothing. In the passage of bills of this nature, politics does not figure and no doubt a democrat would have done as much, yes more than Pollard would, or could. When Pollard does any thing for this city It will be when he cannot do oth erwise. P. E. 0.
