when Hie educational emit' bill was

every slat" organization ha partici
pated in making u commendations to
the state .supeiintendeii" and the
school voiniutssioii a b o u t desired
changes in the school laws. Kiuner
than to attempt to amend the v.iilmis
sections seveial able fcchool men anil
lawyers have been winking several
weeks on n school code that will be
ennsldered ill its entiiety. It is of
sueli far reaching importance that it
is planned to have extra copies of the
bill printed so that nil inquirers may
be supplied with copies
Wheio is the organized lobby of
former yearsY" is a fieipiently asked
question around the state house. No
one seems to be able to answer the
question and it is apparent that the
times have changed and that represent
ntives of special Intel ests have lent ned
that the present membership is not
gcnoially amenable to old ways of
making and killing laws
A bill has been introduced that
seeks to change the law to close
saloons at six o'clock instead of eight
in the evening. Temperance woikeis
disclaim any particular interest in the
bill and the saloon men say that it was
not offered tit tin Ir suggest ion, so It is
fair to presume legislation on the
liquor question will not attract much
attcntiou at I Ids session. ,
Since overtime has been almost en
liioly cut out aiming the employees at
the house end of the state house it ,is
appaient that the jobs are seeking Hie
men iiitlier than the deeteplt and th"
intlrin seeking tlie sinecuies. Koimer
employees wlio ciiine at tlie beginning
of ttie session this time expecting big
pay for doing little tiork have quit in
disgust rather than wait for tlie rush
period when they can become attached
to tlie pay roll.
Governor Moi eheud recommended in
his message that tlie conilcts at me

latiiic make an impropriation for the
machinery and for the salaries of ex
port printers to do the supervising
Two stato printery bills have boon in
troduced but neither contemplates any
connection with tho penitentiary.

I lie local Insurance agents associa
tions are behind it pioposod In that
will level lire insurance rates thioiigh
out tlie state. The insm-niico coin
paiiies admit thai tlu'y me getting
higher rates than necessary in some
towns but justify their rates on tlie
theory that in other towns competi
tion has beaten the intcs down below
the cost price. As it is they say that
Nebraska lias not been a proiltable in-
hiliance Held for the last few yeais.
Tlie companies are not asking for
the law that the agents want but they
are not in a position to oppose it. Tlie
plan contemplated would make the
rates the same in towns of similar size
mid operating under similar condi
tion? as to lire llghtingfaellitles. The
equalizing of tho rates would be en
foi ceil bv the stato Insurance com
mission. Tho agents insist that rates
should be established on a seleutillc
and mathematical principle mid when
once so established should not be cut
and slashed by irresponsible agents of
"wild cat" companies.
