Special News letter on the IKin
Of the Statp legislature.
Lincoln. Xebr.. March (Special
orrespondence. ) The time limit for
he tnfrrwJiirHon of bills is part, and
he legislature is now deep, in the
work of passing, amending or killing
proposed legislation. Naturally
nough a majority of the bills In both
branches are amendatory. It is nec
nessary. because of changing condi
tions, to amend numerous statutes at
every sesssion. Every day sees a
batch of bills going from the house
to the senate, and vice versa.
The house has passed house rolls
214 and 215, thus taking a long step
toward redeeming one of the plat
form pledges. These two bills pro-
Ide for the election of precinct asses
sors . Neither had any opposition.
Of the thirty sessions of the legis
lature held prior to the present one,
nine-tenths were republicans. But It
remained for a democratic legislature
to so far show respect for the memory
of Abraham Lincoln as to. provide the
money for the erection of a statue to
the martyed president on the capital
grounds of the city bearing his name.
Last week the house Joined in the
amendment Increasing the proposed
appropriation from $15,000 to $20,
000, and the bill will become a law.
