From Tuesday Daily.
Col. M. A. Bates, float representa
tive for Cass and Otoe counties, came
down yesterday for a brief visit with
his Plattsnwuth constituents. The
Colonel is as chipper and gal as ever
and is optimistic over the outlook for
good legislation. He does cot believe
that the legislature will enact any
radical legislation and thinks the
prosperity and good times with which
the state is blessed will not be in
terfered with by its legislators. The
Colonel Is much opposed to any rad
ical legislation which will hurt or
cripple Nebraska and his vote can al
ways be depended on to be cast for
the right side. The county option
fight is expected to show up this
week in the house and Col. Bates can
be depended upon to make a fight
against it. He is opposed to county
option or to any Interference with
our present liquor laws which are
good enough for everyone. He
also hopes to see some legislation af
fecting the present road law and
hopes to see the result In good roads.
A general revenue bill will undoubt
edly be passed and it is likely the
county assessor in counties of less
than 20,000 population will be re
turned to the old methods of precinct
assessors. In counties having 20,
000 or more the county assessor will
be retained with elected deputies by
the precincts. Col Bates is well sat
isfied with the work of the legisla
ture and especially of the able and
Impartial manner In which Speaker
Pool looks after business. He re
turned to Lincoln yesterday.
