House Votes Down Appropriation for
New School of Agriculture Attempt
to Reconsider Vote County Option
CHI Up in Senate.
Lincoln, Feb. 3. Senator I. L. Al
bert of Platte county, in the debate
upon the initiative and referendum
bill In the senate, spoke for over an
hour to a crowded, Interested chamber
and gallery In favor of deliberation In
beginning direct legislation and that
the bill pussed by this legislature
should be merely advisory to the next
Senator Albert followed Senator i
Sidles of Butler, author of S. F. 1, the
measure before tiio senate. Senator
Skiles challenged Ills colleagues to
carry through their party pledges. He
cited the other states which are using
tho initiative and referendum as
proofs of tho practical capacity of the
Llll to serve It3 purpose and declared
that long study and experience had
taught the experts of direct legisla
tion to advocate a 10 per cent po
tltion as the proper provision to make
tho Initiative effective and satisfac
The cost of operating a petition un
der that per cent has been figured as
about $2,000 In Nebraska at the pres
ent time and that Is enough to keep any
crank from .taking advantage of the
law, he declared.
Senator Skiles said that the liquor
Interests, If they were back of the
fight for higher percentage, had best
withdraw from the fight, as the mem
bers of both parties wero pledged to
support an effective bill and only a
low per cent bill, Immediately effec
tive, would do the work.
The bill of Senator Albert, which
has been Introduced as a substitute
for S. F. 1, was characterized as a
move by a clever lawyer to obtain a
continuance on a lost case.
Agricultural Farrn BUI Lost.
The appropriation of $100,000 for a
new agricultural school at Holdrege
was defeated in the house by the ef
forts of university men who saw In
the measure a blow at the resources of
the state university. Filley of Gage,
Kotouc of Richardson and Smith of
Boone, graduates of the state univer
sity, were able to apeak from the
standpoint of the one more central
educational Institution of the state and
show that tho favoring of the south
western part of the would show dissi
pation of the state's expenditures for
educational purposes. A motion to
Indefinitely postpone the Eastman bill,
II. R. 2, for the appropriation, was
carried In the committee of the whole
by a vote of 46 to 38. Wlien the com
mittee of the whole arose to report,
however, Eastman moved that the
house refuse to concur In the commit
tee of the whole report. The advocates
of the bill tried by the call of the
house to defeat the report of the com
mittee, but when the vote was taken
It stood 47 to 44 In support of the In
definite postponement. EaBtman then
changed his vote to be with the pre
vailing side and be given a chance to
move to reconsider and the vote stood
48 to 43. A recess was then taken.
The nmtter now stands with the re
port of the committee of the whole
to postpone Indefinitely still up In the
air. The temper of the house, how
ever, unless It changes, Is against the
County Option Bill Found.
The county option bill, S. F. -118,
was brought out of the committee ob
scurity In the senate and placed for
third reading and a vote without dis
cussion. The hill had been lost and the com
mittee has been saying nothing at all
about It or the reason for the long de
lay in bringing It up. Senator Bartos
said that the bill ought to be allowed
lo go on general file so that It could
be amended, and If amended properly
I.e might vote for It. Kemp remarked
that any county option that Bartos
would vote for would never amount to
Much as county option. Ollls asserted
that every member of tho sonate had
his mind made up on the question and
a discussion of it would be a waste of
time and oratory. In accord with that
view the bill was Blated for third
reading without a committee of the
whole discussion and today will be
voted upon for passage or defeat.
