pensation of the county Inspector to

This provision was combated by Dr.
Gawne, of Merrick, who wanted to
provide for a specific compensation
for the “county doctor,” who, he said,
would be compelled to do work just
as dangerous and unpleasant as that
of the state oincer. He moved t.he

proposed constitutional amendments.

Senate file 711, by Ransom, providing

mended for indefinite postponement,

Senator Edgar was the only one to
speak for postponement. Oleson,
O'Neill and Young each favored send
ing it to the general file that discus
sion in committee of the whole might
be permitted. Young said, though,
that he Intends voting against the
measure at that time.
SENATE.—Today, February 26, was
the fortieth day of the session, the
last day on which bills can be intro
duced, except upon a recommendation
l»y the governor. As a result, a great
er portion of the day in the senate was
devoted to the reading of new bills,
a large number being introduced dur
ing the afternoon, there being twenty
two bills sent up during the day. Aside
from this the senate found time to
listen to the reports of several com
j mittees, and bills on second reading,
as well as to pass seven bills and kill
one. The total number of bills intro
duced during the present session has
fallen somewhat short, the record be
ing 308, as compared with 355 two
years ago, 383 four years ago and 411
six years ago. Two years ago the
last day for the introduction of bills
called forth more than 100, and a
ulght session had to be called in order
I to have them re*'!, while today the
| consideration of new bills was dis
posed of by 5 o’clock and no night
session is necessary. The first bill of
the session was introduced by Senator
Newell and the last one by Senator
Van Boskirk. The following bills came
up for third reading and were passed:
Senate file 42. by Ransom, an act to
protect feeble-minded females. Sen
ate file 64, by Orounse, amending the
law relating to "Ptitions in Error.”
Senate file 115, by Arends, providing
for a prohibitive license for peddlers,
its object being the protection of re
tail merchants. Senate file 180, by
Miller, relating to the collection of
road tax. House roll 38, by Fuller, an
act to provide for the mowing or oth
erwise destroying of weeds in the pub
lic roads. House roll 89, by Warner,
an act providing for the examination
by county superintendents of appli
cants for admission to the State Nor
mal schools. House roll 204, by Swan
son, an act to transfer the sinking
fund to the general fund, and to pro
vide for the credit of this and direct
With the last day for the introduc
tion of bills passed, the record shows
that in the senate there were a total
of 309 bills introduced, or an average
of about nine and a half for each of
the thirty-three members. The rec
ords, how’ever. show that some of the
members were much more active in
this work than were others. Senator
Martin is responsible for thirty-three
bills. Senator Ransom comee next with
twenty-four, with Young of Stanton
close on his heels with twenty-three.
Senator Balbridgo, although having
been absent since early in the session
on account of sickness, comes fourth,
there being seventeen measures bear
ing his name.
M. F. Harrington of O'Neill today
made an argument before the house
committee on railroads, having under
consideration senate file 166, Senator
Weber's bill, cutting freight rates on
certain commodities from 10 to 15
per cent. Cattle, hogs, horses, lum
ber, coal and hay are the principal
commodities affected. This reduction
is on the rates which were in force
December, 1889. Mr. Harrington dis
cussed the decision of the supreme
court on the maximum freight law
and contended that the decision was
the only one that could be rendered
upon the facts that were presented to
th court, but argued that that decision
did not prevent the legislative power
from passing a bill reducing rates.
Forty-three hills were introduced in
the house on the 26tli, bringing the
total number of-bills submitted in the
one branen up to 478.
The salaries appropriation bill,
house roll 436, by Lane, carries a to
tal appropriation of $879,800, as
against $875,880 In the salary bill
passed two years ago. On the whole
salaries have been slightly raised, but
no provision has been made for sala
ries of the three secretaries of the
state board of transportation, which
made an item of $13,600 two years ago.
Secretary McKesson of the senate
has sprung an agreeable surprise in
the shape of a printed senate calendar
giving in an eight-page folder the exact
status of every bill that has been be
fore the senate. The Hat is corrected
up to February 26 and will probably
be revised from week to week and re
issued. From It one can learn at a
glance what has become of each sen
ate bill, whether passed, on general
file, indefinitely postponed or still in
the hands of its appropriate commit
tee. A list of house bills that have
reached the senate is also appended
with similar information as to their
existence and whereabouts.
The appropriations made for the va

as follows: Governor’s office, $16,480;
adjutant general’s office, $17,1*30; labor

The senate committee on public
lands and buildings, composed of Sen
ators Allen, Young, Trompen, Arends,
Berlet, Owens, Steele, Lyman and
Krumbaeh, went to Omaha for the
purpose of looking Into the needs of
the Institute for the Deaf and Dumb,
located in that city.
Senator Miller’s bill, providing for
stipulated sums to be paid county
commissioners provides that county
commissioners and county supervisors
shall each be allowed for the time
they shall be actually and necessarily
employed in the duties of their office,
the sum of $3 per day. and 5 cents per
mile for each mile necessarily trav
eled; provided, however, that in coun
ties not having more than 5,000 in
habitants their per diem shall not ex
ceed 1100 per year.
The vote for senator on the 1st re
sulted as follows: Allen 43, Berge 6,

Rosewater 15, Thompson, D. E., 38,
Thompson, W. H., 15, Wethereld 2.
H. C. Lindsay, private secretary to
Governor Dietrich, received the fol
lowing message from the governor,
sent from Ridgeville, Ind. “in view
of the fact that the penitentiary is
nearly destroyed by fire and what re
mains is in bad condition and the
present location being undesirable,
viewed, from other standpoints, I
would favor purchasing from two to
four sections of good farming land on
which to construct a new penitentiary,
so that convicts may be employed
both in manufacturing and farming
and raising sugar beets and other
products. I hope no action will be
taken to rebuild without giving the
above proposition due consideration.

FAIRBURY, Neb., March 4—A
meeting of ali the physicians of the
city was held here at the request of
Mayor Hartigan, and several cases
were examined that were suspected of
having smallpox, but which were not
under quarantine. The result was
that each and every case was pro

mous vote of the physicians, and
strict quarantines were ordered. In
addition to this a hoarding house was
yesterday quarantined, three of the
inmates having taken down with the
disease. One of them, a young man
