SENATE TO WORK
:h to attend the
Decision of Steering Committee
Less Than a Month Left
Washington, D. C, Jan. 28. With
less than thirty working days remain
ing in the life of the Sixty-fourth
congress, the democratic steering com
mittee of the senate decided today to
hold daily sessions of the senate from
11 o'clock in the morning until 10
o'clock at night, beginning Thursday,
The decision is to drive hard and
fast on essential appropriations and
the revenue bill and to undertake the
big general administration measures
one by cne as time permits.
What gcmeral legislation is to be
taken' up first no member of the steer
ing committee would say. The general
understanding, however, is that the
lailroad labor bill will be considered
as soon as the Indian appropriation
bill is cut. of the way, provided the in
terstate commerce committee does not
ultimately decide to await action on
this matter in the house. In view of
the fact that Representative Adamson
is proposing to rush a separate bill on
the subject through the house, the
senate committee may decide to wait.
In that case the corrupt practices bill

The plan of the steering committee

in the history of the road was ended.
The News is informed that Mr. A.
M. Senz, representing the Carter Oil
Company in promoting and develop
ing new oil territory, is expected to
come back to Nehawka in the near
future to make another attempt to
secure leases on some desirable land
in the territory.
Of the 12,000 acres in the block
wanted the company has leases on a
big majority of the land, but there are
about a dozen farmers who have not
yet signed up, although several of
this number, who have thought the
matter over carefully since Mr. Senz
was here early this winter has ex
pressed a willingness to do so now.
It is very much desired that all will
consider the matter seriously and be
ready to sign up when Mr. Senz re
turns. The large majority of farmers have
signified their intentions of letting
the oil company proceed with the
work of prospecting, and it would
indeed be a pity yea, perhaps a
calamity, should a few still persist in
withholding their names to the con
tracts. If there is oil here the company will
develop the field, and if there is not,
it surely will not hurt anyone to line!
out. Should oil be found in paying
quantity, think what it would mean to
Owing to the fact that a majority
have signed and the company tak
ing the big chance in the development,
we believe it is only fair to those
who have signed and the company
if these few who arc holding btck,
will give Mr. Senz a lease in order to
finish up the holdings as he desires
It is positively certain that unless the
company get the required number of
leases there will be no developments
made, and the Nehawka territory will
remain as now undeveloped. Ne

Some f the
have come down to prices
as low ss ours!"
There -bre two ways of merchandising men's clothing.
One vay is to lay in a stock, mark it as high as you dare
for the op-2iii;i of the season; sell all you can at the highest
prices and (hen, when iibe demand slackens, cut down the
prices io n reasonable basis. It is the kind of a business that
pays finely if ycu can keep your customers.
The other way is to mark your stock bedrock in the be
ginning. You don't get a whaling big profit that way and
you don't gel a chance to have a "sale," with a pretendec(
reduction belcw a fair price but you do keep your customers
and a certain sort of satisfaction that comes of fair dealing.
We prefer the second plan it has been our way all along.
Seme "sales" are going on in stores in the larger cities,,
with suits about as low in price as pur regular prices, but suits
said not to be as good as curs.
Another thing Gur assortment hasn't run down; good
as ever this minute; we are going to keep on selling good clothing in full variety
thru time to come.
Call in, look thru our lines and be convinced that this is no idle chatter.
