Stringent Provialons of Measure.
Lincoln, April 3. Both bouses of
the Nebraska legislature continued
their grind throughout the night, pre
serving the legislative record of
Thursday, the day set for sine die ad
journment. It is proposed to com
plete the work some time Saturday.
One of the Important and unexpected
arts of the day was the passage by
both houses of the bill providing for
state-wide daylight saloons, fixing tbe
hour of opening at 7 a. m. and clos
ing at 8 p. m. The measure carried
In the senate without difficulty, but it
had the bare constitutional majority
of 51 votes In the house. After tho
result had been announced Fogarty
of Greeley county asked leave to
change his vote, but the majority
protested, the record stood and the
bill goes to the governor. The phys
ical valuation of railroads bill was
passed when the house voted to re
cede from the demands of its con
ferees and accepted the senate
amendments, excepting the South
Omaha Stock Yards company from
some of the more stringent provisions
of the 'bill. Agreements were also
reached on the three remaining ap
propriation bills, and there Is now
practically nothing to do tout await
the engrossing of the remaining bills.

Omaha, April 3. Seldom has the
passage of a measure by the statp
legislature caused a flurry such bp
'hat witnessed In Omaha when It was
learned that the daylight liquor bll'
had been passed by both houses
hverybody Interested had gone on
he presumption that the measure
had been killed and had been giving
the matter but little attention. When
It became known the bill had gone
to the governor a movement was
quickly put on foot to bring pressure
to bear on the chief executive to veto
the measure. The Central Labor union
and Dahlman Democracy club passed
resolutions condemning the bill and
the liquor men . Interested will have
many representatives In Lincoln.
While the lintior Interests are per
haps the hardest hit. the business
men of Omaha have already taken ac

governor, and It Is believed several
hundred of them will visit Lincoln
to urge, the governor to prevent the

During the visit of Vice President
Willard of the Burlington to the Ne
braska district the matter of com
pleting the yards at Lincoln was con
sidered. No official announcement of
what will be done was made but since
he has been here the impression pre
vails among the men who discussed
tbe matter with him that the work
on the Lincoln yards will soon be re
sumed and that they will be finished
in time to take care of the fall crop
Mr. Willard came to Lincoln from
the west, having spent several days
on the lines west of here inspecting
company property. From here he
continues his Journey east, after a
stort stay in the city during which
he met a number of Lincoln men. He
made a short address at the Lincoln
Hotel to representatives of the local
lodge of the Brotherhood of Locomo
tive Engineers making them a prom
ise that he will be here June 29 to'
deliver an address to the big union
meeting now being promoted by the
engineers. In the short address to
the englnemen he told them some
things the management of the road
has to contend with, and pointed
out that th engineers and the man

It was stated from an official
source that the only work of great
importance contemplated on the Ne
braska district this season is the
completion of the Lincoln yards.
During the past week a large num

to work on various parts of the Ne
braska district. State Journal.
J. Frances, general passenger
agent of the Burlington lines east of
the Burlington lines east, of the Mis
souri river, was in Oniaha Friday
consulting with L. W. Wakely, gen
eral agent of the lines west of the
river in reference to the proposed
changes yhich will be put in effect
over the Burlington system May 23.
These changes will be most im
portant and will involve the addi
tion of numerous new trains, most
of which will directly benefit Omaha.
The second flier from Omaha to the
Puget Sound country will then be put
In service, running over the Burling
ton to Billings and from Billings over
the new Great Northern line through
Great Falls. The midnight train from
Omaha west by w hich residents in all
parts of the state on the Burlington
will be able to return to their homes
cn the same day after shopping and
visiting the theaters in Omaha will
also be of great benefit to this city.
Another new train talked about
but which has not been definitely de
cided upon Is an evening train from
Omaha to Lincoln. For some years
there has been a clamor for this
train and the Burlington officials
now see their way clear to put the
train in service, leaving Oniaha for
Lincoln about 7 p. m.
All these new trains with the help
of the new Omaha division with Its
headquarters in Omaha, will greatly
beneflit the wholesale and retail in
terests of Omaha, as they will not
only permit passengers to return the
same night, but will also permit
Omaha merchants to send out pack
ages to all parts of the state the
same night. Heretofore both pas
sengers and packakes had to leave
Omaha by 4:10 p. m. or remain over
until next day. Omaha Bee,
