telephone message announcing the
critical condition of their brother,
John J. Buttery, who has been quite
sick for several weeks past. The mes

of work for a long period of years.
For the past thirty years he has re
sided at Lincoln and up to a few
months ago was in fairly good health
but some six weeks ago he suffered
a very serious breakdown and which
resulted in his being made practi
cally blind and made necessary his
going to the hospital for treatment

come to a vote
The measure is expected by those
in chargo to command the vote of the
republican majority, with a few ex
ceptions ar.d to receive the support
of from six to tight democrats. Four
republicans refused to support the
bill when :t was passed bv the last
senate, but today one of them. Sena
tor Edge. New Jersey, had decided
ti. favor it because of improvements
and changes. Support from the
democrats :s expected to come from
senators of agricultural states. Ten
days of extended debate ended late
today with shots at the measure
from Senators Heed. Missouri, and
Walsh. Massachusetts, both demo
crats, and an announcement of sup
port by Sjnator Gooding, republi
I?tginning at noon tomorrow,
speeches will be limited to 10 min
utes on each amendment.
Disposition of the measure will be
followed by reference to a conference
Senator Edge said he had derided
to vote for the bill because he be
lieved it contained "enough good to
more than counter-balance tlie pol
icy and fear.ures I believe to be bad."
He enumerated among changes for
the better he considered had been
made, as the shortening of the ef
fective peri Dd from 10 to six months.
This led Senator Heed to remark
that if "shortening its life four
months made it partly virtuous, win-
not make it wholly virtuous by kill
ing it altogether." Mr. Iteed assail
ed the bill as "pork barrel legisla
tion." Wal$.h Challenges Bill.
The right of the farmers to any
relief legislation was challenged by
Senator Walsh who declared "it is
no time for the granting of special
favors to any class."
International bankers were said by
Senator Gooding to lie opposed to a
protective tariff and therein, he add
ed, lay one cause of democratic op
position. These bankers, he asserted,
were useful in the raising of cam
paign funds-. He charged the demo
cratic party with responsibility for
the low prices of farm products.
They were the result, he said, of
democratic action In putting such
products oh the free list.
