The only announcement from the
state house Thursday that may or
may not cause a sensation to run up
and down the political spinal column
was the unqualified, statement from
Lieutenant Governor Pelham A. Bar
rows that he will not be a candidate,
for a third term in the office he now
occupies. As the constitution pro
hibits a state officer , from running
for any other state office during the
term for which, . be Is elected. Mr.
Barrows is safely out of the way of
political preferment -so far as state
offices go for the balance of. 1921 and
the whole oil922. Mr. Barrows has
counted himself out. Nobody has
done it for him. After 1922 fades
away Mr. Barrows will be at liberty
to start after and lariat any state
office he may pick out of the bunch,
but he talks as one who has had
enough. He proposes to go back to
his first love, the newspaper busi
ness. Mr. Barrows enjoys the distinc
tiftn of holding seven different offices,
none of which pays a salary. Only
recently he. was elected to office in
the Lancaster county humane society,
but came within an ace of being im
peached because he got up at mid
night and threw bricks at some cats
which were disturbing the peace in
his back yard. He got out of the
scrape by saying he believed from
the noise the cats were making they
were dying by inches and thinking
that was too slow he proposed to be
humane and chase them into the al
ley and there make them die by the
Mr. Barrows was elected lieutenant
governor twice. The first time he
was elected partly because he is a di
rect descendent of the Pilgrims and
partly because he was a homesteader
and pioneer in Boone county, Nebras
ka. There was an indirect appeal
because his ancestors had led a hard
life on the rock bound coast of Mas
sachusetts and he himself had been
a homesteader in Nebraska . "Let's
give him something easy for once in
his life," was the slogan, so he was
elected lieutenant governor. One of
the duties of this office, as i well
known, is for the occupant to sit
around and wait for the governor to
die or be impeached, or in the gov
ernor's absence to serve in his stead
for little or nothing.
The recent constitutional conven
tion discussed the proposition of
abolishing the office of lieutenant
governor and some, other state of
fices, but it had a vision in the night,
changed its mind and the people still
have the constitutional right to elect
eighteen state officers, including sev
en judges of the supreme court, but
not including congressmen and Unit
ed States senators, legislators, dis
trict judges, county officers and city
officers, nor five regents of the uni
versity. "I am not a candidate for a third
term." said Lieutenant Governor Bar
rows. "It is a business principle that
a man should be retained in his posi
tion because of the knowledge he has
of the business, but it seems that
there is a sentiment in Nebraska that
two terms in one office is enough.
While I have no objection to anyone
being a candidate for a third term,
I will not do so. I have had all the
honors, enssing and criticism that
usually goes with the office, and I
will leave it well satisfied. I propose
to quit when my record for running
for office is good. I shall go back to
newspaper work in the near future
in the spring. My term of office as
commander in chief of the Sons of
Veterans will end October 1, and then
I will be in a position to accept some
thing else. One week from today I
shall leave for the national encamp
ment of the Sons of Veterans. I will
stop on the "way to speak at Kansas
City and St. Louis.
This seemed like a cold and formal
quitting of the political game, so
newspaper reporters asked Mr. Bar
rows if he is still a republican, or if
he had any lart word for Jiis fellow
office holders.
"I will continue to take an inter
est in politics," he said, "and if I
can be of any service in the coming
campaign, I will be glad to do what
I can. I am still wild for the grand
old party of Taft and Roosevelt and
for the mistakes of some of our of
fice holders I am not responsible."

Washington. D. C, Sept. 16. Re
vision of the house tax bill virtu
ally was cimpleted tiday by the sen
ate finance committee, which under
the present agrement will report to
the senate a measure having these
outstanding proposals:,
Repeal of the excess profits tax a3
cf next January 1, as proposed by
the house. ,
Reduction of the income surtax
rates from a maximum of 65 per cent
to 32 per cent, effective next Jan
uary 1.
An increase in the corporation in
come tax from 10 per cent to 16 per
cent, effective next January 1, in
stead of 12' per cent as proposed
by the house.
Repeal of the corpoation capital
stock tax as of" next year.
. Retention of present rates on ex
press packages and oil by pipe lines;
and retention of the taxes on freight
and passengers for the calendar year
1922, onl yat 'haif the present rates
of 3 per cent and 8 per cent, re
spectively. The house proposed repeal
of all these taxes as of next Janu
ary 1.
In agreeing to the house maxi
mum surtax rates of 32 iper cent,
tho senate committee adopted today
a rearranged schedule of rates under
which individuals having incomes of
from $5,000 to $6,000 would be re-
lieved of the present surtax of 1
per cent.
Beginning with incomes of $6,000
and ending with those, of $20,000,
the rate in each bracket would be
reduced 1 per cent. In thq brackets
from $20,000 to $34,000, the exist
ing rates would be increased 1 per
cent and in the brackets form $34,
000 to $66,000 the present rates
would staqd. Incomes of $66,000 or
more would be taxed at the maxi
mum rate.
. Cuts Most Income Taxes
Members of the -jcommittee ex
plained that througlr this plan and
the increased exemptions .allowed to
lwads of families and on account of
dependents there would be a reduc
tion of the income taxes all along
the line except in the case of single
men having incomes of $5,000 or less.
The loss in revenue thru the re
arrangement of the surtax rates was
estimated by treasury experts at
$18,000,000, making the total an
nual loss in individual income taxes
$178,000,00i), including $90,000,000
thru reduction of the maximum sur
tax rates and $7,000,000 thru in
creased exemptions to heads of fam
ilies and on account of dependents.
Chairman Penrose announced to
day that in offering the bill in the
senate he would ask that it be made
the unfinished business sa as to
bring early consideration. He was of
the opinion that its passage would
not be long delayed. After the sen
ate acts the bill goes to conference
for the composing of differences be
tween the senate and house.
