Lincoln, Neb., April 6. (Special
Correspondence.) Now that the leg
islature has adjourned It
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

prlatlng money for the benefit of

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
