Perplexing Problem Threatens The railway commission has received a letter from a prominent railroad man in which the statement is made that T. E. Spens, of the Burlington, is going about over the state working up senti ment in favor of a bill which he intends to have introduced in the next legisla ture. Mr. Spens is placed in the atti tude of representing that all of the rail roads in Nebraska will support the bill. The writer of the letter desires the commission to understand that his road has taken no nuch stand on the pro posed measure, but if the commission desires the bill passed he will give the matter due consideration and perhaps do all in his power to get the bill pass ed. He says the measure which Mr. Spens is pushing is copied from an old English statute which provides that if any woman obtains a promise of mar riage by the use of paint, powder, false hair, manufactured smiles or the use of padding of the figure, in such cases the promise and the marriage, if any mar riage has been performed, shall be null and void. Secretary Clark Perkins will submit the matter to the members of the commission. Lincoln News.
