(Special Correspondence.) Now that the leg islature has adjourned It might.be well to inquire whether or not some of the strictures sought to be placed upon It by republican newspapers Is Justified. AVe venture the statement without fear of successful contradic tion that no legislature that has ever met In Nebraska has placed so many merltorous and wise laws upon the statute bopks, and that no legls lature has passed measures that so little fault can be found with. It has absolutely kept the faith, and has enacted into law the pledges made to the people at the election last fall The two great things demanded were the passage of a bank guarantee law and restoration of the precinct asses sors. While these two things have been done, many other remedial measures have been passed. The bank guarantee law Is conceded by bankers to be the best that could be framed. President Black, who for some time was the president of the bankers association In this state made this statement to the commit tee before which he appeared at Lin coin.

The bill providing for the purchase of the Wayne Normal sihool buildings and appropriating $90,000 to pay for the ame has pabsed. It Is conceded that hese bv'.ldings the worth a sum grey ly in excess of this amount and that the state has done a wise thing in making the purchase. One of the best measures passed by this legislature from the stand point of right and Justice Is the bill preventing the taking of soldiers pensions at the different soldiers homes. It has been the practice of the last administration to take these pensions, or a certain per cent of them and utilize the funds In running the home. The soldiers themselves bitterly complained of this and ef forts were made by their friends to obtain injunctions preventing the state board from mulciting the old veterans. The more serious thnt thf soldiers injuries were and the great er the pension he obtained the moiv the board took from him. All this will be prevented by the new law, and these men who guarded the nation will be permitted to utilize the few dollars the government gives them as they see proper. The bill providing that no more drinking will be permitted on trains will become a law. In speak'rg of legislation along temperance lines H may be said that the Slocum law us it now stands has not been charged n any respect. Strong efforts weic made by the brewery Interests .to amend this law, and thereby open up the gates for a more liberal construe tion, but these efforts were nipped in the bud. Every measure that had that purpose in view has mot with in stant death. It has been the sense of this legislature that the liquor ques tion was not an Issue In the campaign last fall except locally, and that tbere was no mandate from the people to change existing laws and in conse quence no radical laws upon this question have been placed upon the statute books. It must not be forgotten that th new oil law Is of vast importance to the people of this state. It reduce the rate on Kansas oil and It will now be possible to get this oil here for fuel purposes. It changes tho test so that the quality of the oil may be tested as well as its Inflammability It is coiceded by everyone who has Investigated this matter that the hew law will be the means of saving large sum to the people of the state liasoiine is two and three cents per gallon cheaper than It was one week ago.
