Just think what the expenditure of SEVERAL MILLION DOLLARS for ir

wages for many people, many new opportunities to get valuable farm homes,
more new growing towns and business locations.

According to a special from Wash
ington, printed elsewhere In this Is
sue of the Journal, the constlutlon
allty of tho law of Iowa, passed In
1898, enabling an employe of the
operating departments of a railroad
to sue a railroad for Injuries, not
withstanding the fact that he had re
ceived Injury benefits from a relief
department has been upheld by the
aupreme court of the United States.
The rights of a largo number of
trainmen, lturllngton employes In Ne
braska, are affected by the decision
ot the United States supreme court In
tho MeOuIre ease from Iowa, In which
It Is declared that a railroad company
cannot set up In bar to recover by
an employe for personal Injuries the
fact that ho has received benefits for
such Injury from tho railroad relief
association. It has been claimed by
the Burlington In suits In court that
an acceptance of relief by a member
la a release and satisfaction of all
claims against the railroad company.
The terms of membership signed by
ach member of the relief organiza
tion require the relinquishment of the
right to sue tho company In caso of
acceptance of the relief money, or In
caso of suit the rlf?ht to the relief In
surance Is denied him.
The decision of tho United States
supreme court which sustained tho
ruling of the supreme court of Iowa
1s that such a contract entered Into
by a railroad employe Is void and that
the employe has a right to doublo ro
covery. Tho court claims that It Is
a violation of the fourteenth amend
ment to tho constitution, which de
clares that no stato shall deprive any
person of life, liberty or property
without duo process of law. It Btates
as a second violation that no state
shall deny to any person tho equal
protection of tho law.
This decision not only Involved the
validity of the Btatute of Iowa, pro
blbltlng the right of a corporation to
make such a contract, but affects the
Nebraska statute as well. The statute
of Nebraska has not been tested, but
a prominent attorney, commenting on
the decision, said that It was not
nearly so strong as the Iowa statute.
Writ of Habeas Corpus.
Hon. C. U. Mltzger of thjs county
has Introduced a bill In the legisl
ature, thesubstance of which la to give
persona confined In any state Institu
tion by reason of habitual drunken
ness or for the drug habit, the right
to uhc the writ of habeas corpus, but
provides that no court shall release
any person bo confined If It shall ap
pear that he Is still under control of
the county board of Insanity commissioners.

A Few Items of Interest From a
Legislative Standpoint.
The legislature Is now on the lasi
half of the session. Iiills may be In
troduced for sevt n n ore days, but
after that there will be no further
"first readings," and the tln.e of the
".'iiate and house will be devoted en
irtly to passing on pending measures.
Thus far there have been ten bill."
that have passed both houses and
gone to the governor for his approval.
Thirty-four senate files have besn
sent to"tlfe house, but none have been
returned, the bills that have gone to
the goernor having originated in the
house. The senate has Indefinitely
postponed seventeen of Its own bills
Senator Reagan of Omaha has In
troduced a bill which has for Its
object the suspension of the 8 o'clock
closing law by a vote of the people
In towns having over 5,000 popula
tion. In the house Representative
Gait of Clay county has Introduced a
bill for a proposed constitutional
amendment for state-wide prohibi
tion. It Is hardly probable that either
measure will pass, whilo It Is quite
possible that both may be Indefinitely
postponed. Governor Aldiich would
be pretty apt to veto the former,
even If It should pass.
Legal executions will continue In
Nebraska, the house having de
feated a bill by an overwhelming ma
jority to abolish capital punishment.
Almost an entire day was devoted to
a' discussion of the measure, how
ever. '
Representative Quaekenbush's tax
fenit bill has hud hard sledding. It
was first reported for Indefinite post
ponement. Later there was a res
surectlon and It again saw the light
of day, but there Is a great deal of
opposition to the measure. Should
the bill become a law, however, there
would bo more cash listed for taxa
tion In one year as a result of Its
provisions than In ten years under
tho system now In vogue.
The Joint committee of the house
and senate appointed to Investigate
tho alleged Omaha election frauds,
returned to Lincoln Friday. Senator
Albert, chairman of the senate end
of the committee, was called to Iowa
because of the serious Illness of his
mother, however, so that It Is- hardly
probable a report will be submitted
before the latter part of the week.
The sennto committee on public
lands and buildings made, what will
probably be Its last Junket the past
week, the members having gone to
Nebraska City and Peru to Investi
gate the state institutions located at
those places.
It is hard to forecast Just what will
bo tho outcome on the Initiative and
referendum bill, although there Is no
doubt but what It will go through In
some form. Senator Sklles' bill, sen
ate file No. 1, passed the senate last
week by a vote ot 26 to 0, seven
members being absent at the time
the vote was taken. The measure Is
now In the house, but a hard fight Is
being made on sections of It and It
may be returned to the senate In
quite a different form from what It
was when It went to the house.
Representative S. C. Iiassett of
Buffalo county, who voted against
capital removal, Is having a hard
time of It. Kearney, the county seat
of his county, Is a prospective can
didate for the future capital, and
since he voted against what la re
garded as the Interests of his own
community, the people out there have
been flooding him with protesting
petitions. On the other hand, the
house has expressed its approval of
the member from Buffalo through a
vote of confidence In his Integrity.
any changes that might now be made
would probably have the effect of
again tieing it up for an Indefinite
There are three apportionment
bills pending In the senate, Senator
lloagland having Introduced the first
one and the others being by Sen
ators Albert and Placek. The indica
tions are there will be a bard fight
over this question before It Is dis
posed of.

Three of I'lattsmouth's most
ambitious young nlmrods, possibly
after seeing a flock of handsome
ducks or geese pass over their heads
toward the waters or the muddy Mis
souri, hied themselves away for their
trusty shotguns last Friday after
noon, and In the course of a few
momenfs were lying In wait along the
cold and gloomy banks of the old
river for the arrival of the feathered
beauties. The party was composed of
Evans Noble, Carl Reese and Willie
Stohlman, and here they remained
until night came on, never thinking
but what their way home was per
fectly dear to them, but In passing
to the main channel of the river they
were compelled to cross a stream of
back water with but one place to
cross. In their wanderings they had
lost sight of this spot and when the
darkness came on they were unable
to find It. Becoming tired and worn
out they gave up to the Inevitable
and launched themselves for the
night, luckily possessing a few
matches, kindled a Are and there they
remained until about 6 o'clock Satur
day morning, arriving home In time
for an early breakfast. However,
their good mothers, possibly after
worrying about them all night, were
not compelled to pick and prepare
any of their game for breakfast. They
returned with their guns and very
cold feet and nothing more. We are
Informed that a certain young lady
not a thousand miles from Flatts
mouth was very much disappointed
over the unfortunate detention of the
young men.
